Condensed Facts About
By H. W. Griggs iu Scientific American.
A few facts presented in a con
densed form may possibly interest
the readers of the Scientific Amer
ioan who wish to follow the course
of Halley's comet in the heavens
during its present appearance.
The last perihelion passage oc
curred on November 15th, 1835.
The present perihelion passage
will occur on April 20th, 1910.
The perihelion distance will be
r 0.578, and the aphelion distance
I- will be 35.30. The eccentricity is
0.967, the longitude of ascending
node is 57 deg. 16 min., the node
and spsis angle is 111 deg. 47
min., the inclination of the orbit
is (162 deg. 12 min. t) 17 deg. 48
r min.--, the longitude of perihelion
1 305 deg. t and the motion is re
trograde, in other words opposite
to that of the planet. The diame.
ter of the nucleus cannot of course
be stated with anything like ac
curacy at the present time, but it
is not likely to exceed 120,000
At the end of February Prof.
Barnard of Yerkes Observati y
estimated the tail to be 14,000,000
miles long. Just before and after
perihelion passage the tail will be
at least that long, and probably
longer. The comet is fast ap
proaching its perihelion point, or
point nearest the sun, where, as
we said, it Is due to arrive on
April 20th. During the months
of February and March, the earth
and the comet are racing on prac
tically parallel orbits, 170,000,000
miles apart on opposite sides of
The comet first crossed the
earth's orbit about March 10th at
a point where the earth will arrive
at the middle of next October, but
far above where the earth will be,
so to speak, for it will be some 10,
000,000 miles above the plane of
the ecliptic. In April the comet
will emerge from behind the sun,
and will become visible to the
y naked eye in the eastern sky be
On April 20th, when the comet
will swing around the sun, it will
be 57,000,000 miles sway from the
sun. Its velocity will be 26 miles
a second. The earth travel at
about 19 miles a second. On May
2nd the comet will traverse the
orbit of Venus, some 6,000,000
miles above the planet. In other
words, an astronomer on Venus
would find the comet a far more
impressive spectacle than a terres
trial astronomer. As it rushes on,
Halley's comet will pass between
the earth and sun close to its as
cending node. On May 18th the
earth will be about 13,000,000
miles away from the nucleus or
head, as against 5,000,000 miles in
1835. Moreover, on May 18th the
earth will be enveloped in the co.
met's tail for a few hours. A few
days later the comet will be visi
ble in the western sky after sunset
with a 15 deg. or 20 deg. splendor.
After that it will speed away from
the solar system. The last
glimpse of it with the naked eye
will be obtained probably at the
end of June. It will not reappear
for seventy-thie years.
Halley's comet is noteworthy
because it was the first comet for
which an orbit was plotted and a
time table calculated. It has a
history more or less identified I
with the history of human thought
and civilizationu. The superstiti.
ousne dread with which it was re
garded in medieval and ansucient
times swayed many a monarch. It
was instrumental in forming the r
policies of Louis le Debonnaire in f
837. It blazed in the sky when
the Turks threatened to overran
Europe in 1456, and when the Re- b
t formation was at its height in
1531. It struck terror to the Sax
ons under Harold in 1066, when
they were conquered by William
of Normandy. This fear of the
- middle ages was dispelled only
when Halley made his great pre
diction which was verified after
the great astronomer was in his

v HOW TO SOLDER.
r Not many farmers know how to
s solder, and yet it should be as
I well known as any part of the
M farm economy A little knowledge
of how to mend articles of tin,
stop leaks in pipes of metal, etc.,
would save many dollars for those
E who want to economize. It does
not require mubh skill to solder
effectively and one can acquire the
art with a little practice by care
fully observing the iollowing di
t rections :
Before soldering an article the
edges should be well washed with
a strong solution of soda and wa
ter and scraped or filed absolutely
clean, as any grease or oily mat
ter will prevent the adhesion of the
Thrust the point of the solder
ing iron into the tire to become
hot, and while is is heating paint
the part to be soldered with an
acid made in the following man
nor : Take a quarter of a pound
of zinc and put it into a small
earthen vessel. Pour over it half
a teacupful of muriatic acid. It
is best to do this out of doors, as
the fumes are rather disagreeable.
While the zinc is dissolving add a
piece of salammoniase about the
size of an egg. When the action
of the acid upon the zinc has cea
sed the liquid will become cool
and clear, and may be bottled and
kept for any length of time. The
"soldering acid," as it is called,
can be bought, but it is expensive,
and can easily and cheaplly made
The parts beuing ready and the
soldering iron hot, take the latter
in your right hand and a piece of
solder, which you can get from
any tinshop, in your left. Bring
both points, (the solder and the
soldering iron) in contact with the
place to be soldered. The melt
inug solder will be attracted and
will flow over the parts painted by
For large pieces of work, such
as tin roofs, rosin is the usual
flux, and is rubbed on the parts to
be joined, but it is harder to man
age, and the acid will be found to
be much more satisfactory for
mending. Keep your soldering
iron always perfectly clean by
rubbing it on a piece of salammo
niac when you take it from the
