Whisking about six anil a half fath
oms of fiery tall through tho heavens,
the muchly heralded Unllcy comet
was seen chasing Itself through the
eastern heavens between 4 and 5
o'clock yesterday morning without tho
aid of n glass by Captain Pcnhallow,
master of the little American schoon
er Allro Cooke. '
The lumber-laden crnft was beating
off Koko Heuil early Tuesday morning
and for tho space of n halt hour tho
mytterlous heavenly visitor was plain
ly seen by the cntlro ship's' company.
The comet nhnwml up with much bril
liance. The tall wns equally clear and
to the officers and men of tho Allco
Cooko It appeared to be about ten feet
in length and at an upward Inclination-
of, forty-flvo degrees. Tho weather I
was very 'clear at tho tlmo that tho J
observation was made.
There was a collision late last
night between nn automobile whose
number is unknown and hack No.
19. It appears that tho car wns com
ing nlong at a lively rate of speejl
and dashed into the hack. The blow
struck was a sliding one, and an
extra tire that was attached to the
side of the automobile was loosened
and fell to the ground.
The automobile did not stop, but
went off nt a high rate .of speed, and
the number was not even caught. It
Is Impossible to see the numbers on
most machines at night tlmo, even
when tho ears are traveling at a
slow rate of speed.
Howover, tho chauffeur who
struck tho hack has tho choice of
two things he must Bttfnd for tho
loss of u tiro worth about 50, or
clso show up at the police sUtlon
and tuko his medicine for running
Into the hack.
