The recent changes in the nebula sur
rounding the new star in Perseus and
the measurements made upon the moving
portions of the nebulosity give a basis for
calculations of the distance, dimensions
and brilliancy of the star system. Tho
conclusions are, in brief, that the distance
of the new star is such that its light
would require about 250 years to reach the
earth. The phenomena that we have wit
nessed took place about 250 years ago,
then, and were contemporaneous with
Oliver Cromwell's protectorate. If our
own sun were to be removed to the dis
tance of the new star it would shine as a
star of the tenth magnitude, that is, it
would be Just visible in a telescope hav
ing an object glass about three inches in
diameter. When the new star was at Its
maximum brilliancy, it was about 10,000
times as bright as our own sun. The the
ory upon which these results are based is
given in Nature for January.— New York

ever, much modified. Although the total
quantity of air entering the lungs was
less at high altitudes, the rate of respira

Shortly before the California racing sea

sent out a public warning against cigar
store bookmaking under penalty of a raid.
This form of gambling has long been In
progress undisturbed by the police. They
have experienced many obstacles in the
effort to secure evidence that will hold
under the attack of attorneys.
Bail in the sum of $50 each was fur
nished for their appearance Monday In
the Police Court.
For several weeks Patrolman M. J.'
Shannon, a new appointee on the police
force, has been gathering evidence
against the poolsellers. The method they
are accused of having employed In hand
ling bets on the races is such as to render
very difficult the detection of the gam
bling. No records are kept of bets that
can te reached. The bookmakers pay
their bets on the published odds, and the
transaction is on the face of it a matter
of principal and agent.
