ute Was paid to-day by tho House ol
Representatives to Iteprefcntatlvo Jo

Democratic leader, and others told of hl-t
iiccomjillshments during his long service
When It camo hl.s tlmo to talk. Mr.
Cannon described the ceremony at a
wake and Paid ho was beginning to wep
dor If he was not already realizing tho
hopes of those who deslro tj return from
tho other world to oommunlcato with
friends Mill participating in the ordinary
affalrM of the. tnrth.
Many big things happened ln 1872, the
yar ho was first elected to Congress, no'
tho least of which was a vlolont eruption
of Vesuvius, he said.
"Speaker Gillette and Mr. Clark wer.
approaching the polls that year," he said
"and Jim Mann, at sixteen, was trying
i to decide whether he would be a farmur
I or a lawyer. Ralnoy and Mondell wero
beginning to figure life In percentages
and tho ambitions of Claude Kllchln and
Nick Longworth at the ago of three were
centered about their first pants."
j Admitting that he had been ln Congress
' off and on longer than other members,
Mr. Cannon declared he was not tho vet
eran of continuous service,
j "Gillette, Clark, Mann, Hutler Green
of Mas&achUdotts, Moon and Sims rank
, with me In that line," he added, "be
causo I had two vacation. which I did
not seek, and those four years were th
longest years that have Intervened wince.

SOME STARS LARGER
THAN FIRST SURMISED
Chicago, Dec. 23. Results of the firs"
successful experiments on an astronomi
cal device at the Mount Wilson observa
tory revealing that certain remoto stars
' ln tho firmament are many thousand
I times larger than astronomers had sur
mised wc.ro discussed to-day by Trof.
' A. A. Mltchelson, scientist of the Univer
sity of Chicago, who perfected the device.
He spoku before tho American Ph steal
Under his direction astronomical ex
perts have Just computed tho diameter nf
Alpha Orlonls, one of the stars In tho
constellation of Orion. The diameter i
Professor Mlchelson's device Is de
scribed as follows:
The mirror of an eight-foot reflecting
telescope Is obscured by an opaquo cap
j with two silts adjustable In width and
distance apart. When the instrument Is
j focused on a star, instead of an Image
I of the star there appears a series of in-
terference bands arranged at equal dis
tances apart and parallel to the two slits.
When the slits are properly adjusted a
distance Is finally attained between them
at which tho fringes disappear.
The angle of the subtended star l.s
obtained by a simple formala and when
the angte and the distances of the star
from the earth are known, the diameter
of tho star can easily be determined.
The device was perfected last summer
nnd taken to California by Professor
Mltchclson and Its secret wns guarded
, until to-day.
