Why Stars Did Not Fa??T
A good many pooplo throughout tho
country woro greatly disappointed on tho
14th by tho non-appoaranco of tho pre
dicted meteoric shower. Somo of tho
moro patient ones in Walhalla spout Wed
nosday night also in tho pleasant, past i nie
of star-gazing. Prof. Otis Ashmoro, tho
Savannah ostronomor, writing in tho
Atlanta Journal, makes tho following
statement rolativo to tho non-appearance
of thc ?noteors:
"That tho leonides havo not appeared
in greater numbors at this timo is re
markable. While tho data concerning I
thoir orbits and motions aro not snfli
eiontly determined to mako accurate pre
dictions concorning thom, astronomers
had good reason to expect a much groator
display than has yot occurred. It is still I
possible that wo will havo a considerable |
showor, but tho chances aro against it,
and thoy lesson ovory day. Among tho
probablo causes of thoir non-appoaranco
"First, tho earlier ones may have passed
through tho motoor stream in day time,
when even tho most brilliant display
Otherwise would havo boon completely I
masked by the sun's r?ys. It takes tho
oarth only from four to eight hours to
pass through tho meteor showor, and it
is quito possible for tho oarth to pass
through thom in tho day timo. If this
has boon tho caso it in likely that a nor?
tit;:' of tho fourth at least was exposed to
tho odgo of tho passing stream during tho
early dawn. This 'nay havo boon III tho
oooan or in sparsely mottled hv.id areas.
"Again, thoro is somo reason to think
that tho leonides travel in aoveral groups
along thoir common orbit, and that at
this refill n tho earth slipped between tho
separate aggressions without collision
with tho main body of tho niotoors.
"Anothor possible explanation lies in
tho tidal oflcct of tho sun's attraction,
which constantly tonds tu disintegrate
tho meteoric mass and distribute the
niolooric matter uniformly around tho
orbit. Tho earth at each number would
intercept a less number of meteors in this
thin stioam. Theso lillie bodies for
thirty-throe years havo boon exposed to
various disturbing forces ulong their
path, and a vory slight chango in their
orbit would sond thom olear of the

Tho Canning Factory's 8ucoessful Year.
Tho Walhalla Canning Paotory closed
its doors for this yoar about two weoks
ago. Though not quits as muoh oannlug
was dono this year as last, the rooord for
this yoar shows a wonderful advance lu
tho matter of defectivo canned goode.
During tho canning sonnons of 1806 aud
1800 about i.noo onus of goods spoiled
and wore thrown away. This noavy
loss was duo, however, in a mensuro, to
tho at tempt at canning okra separately,
and this year no attempt in that line was
made, as it is always uncertain and the
risk.-groat. Tomatoes and okra wore
Eut UP togo'hor, and tomatoes separately,
ut no okra straight.
Mr. G. K. Maxwell has had charge of |
tho faotovy sinco 1807, and has mado a
a success during tho three seasons ho has
operated tho plant. In reply to ;'. request |
for a statement cone urning his Work, Mr.
Maxwell said :
"Aftor working in the 'Walhalla Can
ning Factory two years I took charge as
processor in .1897. During that, season I
tint up 25,000 cans, and of that number
ost 82. In 1898 I put up 8,878 oana and
lost 17. This yoar I put up 7.570 oana
and lost only 8. I mado it a rule to. run
through tho stock onco a wook, and whoa
I found a eau o wollen I opened it, thus
saving tho can. This was novor douo by
those in cbargo before, and hundreds of
cans woro noodloBsly thrown away. As
a result of this method of looking aftor
tho canned goods our loss this yoar baa
boon almost nothing."
Tho product of tho Walhalla Cauuing
