the biblical record, he bought the cave

his youth-for "four hundred sheckels

AT a meeting of the Connecticut Acad
emy of Science held in Nov., Prot. H.
A. Newton made a statemest of the re
sult of the observations taken at New
Haven on the sLioting stars, the week
before. The statements were exceeding
ly interesting and were illust.ated by
diagrams. Prof. Newton remarsed that
the meteoric bodies were in a stream
5,000 miles thiek, at least a thousand
million miles long, and of unknown
breadth; that in the thickest portion of
the stream the individual bodies were
25 miles apart. This stream moves
along in an ellipse, which touches the
earth at one extremity. The stream
runs through the whole ellipse once in
33 years. The meteoric displays occur
at the end of these periods.
