Golden Seal, the root of the above
plant, is a very useful medicine. Many
people gather it in our rich woodlands
during the summer. Few people know
how valuable it is in dyspepsia, catarrh.
and as a general tonic.
Many thousand pounds of this root are
used each year in the famous catarrh
remedy,Peruna. This fact explains why
everybody uses Peruns for eatarrh.

HALLEY'S COMET IN SIGHT
How Astronomers Have Predicted
Coming of Astral Derelict Acoru
rately--ome Strange Facts.
Halley's comet again is approach
ing the earth after an absence of 75
years. While swinging around in
space it visited a region that is per
haps 50.000,000 miles more distant
than the outermost planet of the so
lar system. Although it is not sched
uled to arrive at its perihelion-the
point least distant from the sun-un
til July 19, 1912, or possibly the lat
ter part of 1911, depending on the
amount of planetary disturbance, it
probably will be visible to the naked
eye in a short time.
After an exposure of an hour re
cently in Heidelberg, Germany, a pho
tographic plate showed the comet as
a nebula of the sixteenth magnitude.
Another photograph has just been se
cured of the comet at the Yerkes ob
servatory, near Williams Bay, Wis.

Extraordinary attention is being
paid to the return of this celebrated
comet. It is of particular interest to
scientists because it was the first
known to travel in a closed orbit. Its
brilliancy, sensational sise, records of
its returns-the consternation once

In 1682, in the reign of Charles II.
of England, a comet of extraordinary
size appeared, which was observed
by Newton, Halley and other astrono
mers of the time. Halley followed its
course among the stars and. compar
ing his observatona with the records
of previous comets, came to the con
clusion that the comets of 145,. 1531
and 1607 were only different appear
ances of the same object. He staked
his reputation .on a prediction that
the comet would return in about 75
years. True to this prediction, it did
appear in 1758, when Edmdnd Halley
had been sleeping in his grave for 16
years. The reason the name of Pa
litsch, a Saxon peasant, has been pre
served to posterity is that his eye
was the first to catch sight of the re
turning comet. It was on Christmas
night, 1758, he saw the comet and
cheated the professional astronomers
of the honor.
The first recorded appearance of
Halley's comet was B. C. 130, when
It was believed to herald the birth of
Mithridates. Ina 106 it was seen
equal to the ftol moon in size. In its
appearance in 1454 Its tail reached
from the hortson to the zenith.

the appearance of the comet in 1835

SUN SPOTS HIT TELEGRIIAPH

In an interview published in the

the sun surface and discovered the
spots, as he expected. In speaking of
the matter he said:
"On hearing of the appearance of the
aurora and other phenomena of an elec-,
trical and magnetic nature I immediate
ly suspected a large sun spot about to
appear. I was not surprised when I
discovered a magnificent group of
spots measuring 60,000 by 50,000 miles,
and showing unmistakable signs of
solar storms, their cyclonic nature be
ing clearly shown by two of the spots
in the group. A more extended ob
servation will show that these cyclonic
spots resolve about a common center
of disturbance on the sun and make
their electrical and magnetic nature
known on the earth by wireless mes

the aether of the solar system and
causes during the duration of such a
large sun spot. a disturbance of the
more or less evenly balanced magnetic
conditions of the earth. Besides the
large group of spots, smaller spots are
also visible by the aid of the telescope,
together with considerable faculae.
The darkest portion of a sun spot is
termed the nucleus; the next darker,
the umbra, and the highest portion,
the penumbra. It is known that the
sun revolves upon its axis in about 26
days, representing at the equator a
velocity of 219 miles per minute, and
this spinning through the aether
causes tremendous disturbances in the
solar region, especially during sun
spot outbreaks. We can imagine what

A Double Repentance
By GEORGE T. PARDY
(Copyrht, b W. QChapman.)
It would be a difficult matter to
say just what started the argument
between Alice Ray and her fiance,
Roland Everett. They simply differed
on a point of view, and as both were
selfl-willed, neither cared to admit be
ing in fault.
"You are absurd, Roland," said the
girl, petulantly. "Just because I don't
agree with you, I'm to be accused of
selfishness and obstinacy. It anyone
is obstinate it certainly is yourself."
'Tery likely," responded her lover,
dryly. "Perhaps we'd better not tall:
of the matter any more."
The two young people were seated
on the veranda of a country house,
charmingly embowered in creeping
° vines and commanding a wide view
of the Hudson river and the mighty
hills through which it winds. The
summer air was full of the fragrance
of new-mown hay, and the drowsy
murmur of insects lulled the ear,
while ever and anon a thrush by the
I brook rippled into mellow song.
Everything spoke of peace except the
two in whose hearts, by right, the
perfecting glory of love should have
given the culminating touch, for they
were engaged. Yet it so happened
that a dispute, trifling in itself, had
become magnified and embittered, aft
Sor the sad human way, until both thee
man and girl were in a state where
any' moment might bring forth some
act or word which the rest of their
lives would be spent regretting. Aft
er Roland's last remark there was si
lance for several minutes. He leaned
back in his chair and looked grimly
down at the river. While Alice, having
turned from ltim with a swift move
meat, stared nervously across the hills
and blinked the tears from her eyes.
When she spoke it was with a meas
ured coldness which hid the hurried
beating of her heart.
"If we have only been engaged a
week, and have already found a topic
on which we must be silent for fear
of quarreling, I hink there surely
must be' somethin wrong."
"If you can say such a thing as
that, Alice, there surely is," replied
her lover, hoarsely.
"Then-then-there's nothing to do
but-" She stopped abruptly sad

at the river and scarcely seemed to
have heard her. She sprang to her
feet and an angry color dyed her
"I'm sorry I've been so slow to un
derstand you, Roland," she exclaimed.
"It's evident we are not suited to eeah
other. The best we can do is-4s to
forget we've ever been engaged."
Roland stood up and looked at her,
pale as she was flushed. "Do yeou

He looked at the ring and then put
it slowly in his pocket. Alice tured
away apd began to arrange magasnes
on a table. A moment or two passd.
Then Roland, without another word
strode down the veranda steps and

Tears blinded her as she etered.

trees and past a yellow field o rye,
through a green wood, and over a
brook by a rustic bridge. Beyond that
