The Falling: Stars.
"We are unable to predict the
exact hour at which the November
meteoric showers will begin. But
it is estimated that the showers
will reach their maximum
brilliancy at 1 o'clock a. m., the
morning of November 15.
Althogh these meteorids revolve
around the sun in a definite orbit,
the poiutof their intersection with
the ordit of the earth moves for
ward at the rate of a degree and a
half per year, thus throwing the
advent of the meteors a few hours
later at each succeeding fall. For
example, the fall of 1833 occurrred
on the night of November 13; the
fall of 1899 will take place on the
evening of the 14th of November,'
and will probably be of some hours
duration. It will be visible
throughout the whole of the North
Amerisau continent and in Europe
ORIGIN OF THEIR NAME.
"The November meteors receive
the name of Leonids from the fact
that thep seem to pour" out from
that part of the heavens wherein
is located the constellation of Leo.
When this constellation is at its
zenith, it is almost overhead at
Washington. In weight these
meteors vary from a few
grains to many pouuds. They
strike the earth's atmosphere, and
begin to burn at the height of
seventy-four miles, and are
generally entirely consumed at a
height of fifty miles.
"The phenomenon of a great
meteoric shower is generally a
perfectly noiseless one. When
the streak is first formed it is
narrow and perfectly straight,
but it soon becomes serpentine and
assumes an irregular figure as it
drifts along under the influence of
the wind currents in the upper
region of the atmosphere. The
streaks are of various colors, owing
partly to substances and partly to
their altitude. Some are of a
delicate greenish hue, while others
light up the skies with a ruddy
glow. Streaks of orange, red,
white and bluish white commingle
to form a rxioet remarkable and
beautiful spectacle. Occasionally
an orangecolored meteor may be
observed leaving in its wake a
streak of green. A peculiarity of
the November meteors is that the
nucleus shoots ahead of the streak
before vanishing. The individual
meteors vary greatly in size. Some
of the larger of the me tors appear
to be half the size of the moon.
Interspersed with the meteoroids
is an occasional fireball, which, in
bursting, causes Bhadov* to be cast
upon the ground, so intense is the
light generated for the moment.
There is no reason that in Buch
instances as this the sound of
bursting should not reach the ears
of spectators. The streaks left in
the case of fireballs of the first
magnitude last in some cases for
several hours."-Pot Newton
This troop will meet at Edgefleld C.
H. on Monday the 13th November in
fatigue uniform with sabres at 9
o'clock a. m., for inspection.

Of all great conquerors, writes
Marion Crawford in "Studies
From the Chronicles of Rome,?
he was the least cruel, for he never
sacrificed human life without the
direct intention of benefiting
mankind by an increased social
stability. Of all great lawigvers,
he was the most wise and just, and
the truths he set down in the
Julian code are the foundation of j
modern justice. Of all great men
who have leaped upon the world
as upon an unbroken horse, who
have guided it with relentless]
hands and ridden it breathless to
the goal of glory, Caesar is the only
one who turaed the race into the
track of civilization and, dying,
left mankind a future in the
memory of his past. He is the one
great man of all without whom
it is impossible to imagine history.
We oaunot take him away and yet
