The year 1910 has entered in it Hal-
ley's comet, and beyond a few com
paratively uninteresting' eclipses of sun
and moon, nothing- else looms up in
tife astronomical horizon. The question
of -where the comet is needs no further,
comment, but what it is brings us to
another story. The most important ob
servations to be made "will not be those
which give us the position of the comet
in the sky by visual measurements, nor
yet, those obtained by the sensitive-
plate and photographic camera. Such
observations will be of enormous value,
but those of greatest service to the
scientist will be some which will not
appeal very much to the public mind,
as they will be little understood.
The spectroscope is to be the import--
ant instrument of Investigation, for
Halley's comet promises io be the very
first bright comet that hs visited the
earth since the modern spectroscope has
been devised. By its means we will
probably be able to decipher the enigma
of the comet's tail, the puzzle to as
tronomers of all ages, why it always
points away from the sun. How science
changes its point of view and adopts
new hypotheses as occasion demands Js
splendidly illustrated by the story of
these comets and their tails. Since the
first explanations given three hundred
years ago, even before the foundation
of the law of gravitation, there have

earlier ideas have been gradually dis-
i carded on becoming untenable through

seemed to contain a riddle -which no as-

Euler, 1744, seemed to have clearly
seen the difficulties In the way of as
suming, with Newton, a gaseous med
ium throughout space, and returned to
the first Ideas of Kepler. However, he
no longer believed that light consisted
in the emission of material particles,
but thought it, as we do now, to be the
result of wave motion The repulsive
force took its origin, according to
Euler's ideas, from mechanical Impacts
caused by theso waves.
The chief advance in the history of
comets during the eignteentn century
universal gravitation itself appeared to could be apparent only, and not real,

action of a solar repulsion. Could this
be a case which showed that gravity
was not universal? Or if gravity did
act, what was the nature of the force
centered in the sun, which actually re
pelled matter so as tp form the tail?
Various theories of comets' tails have
resulted from attempting to find the
nature of this force.
After investigating pjanetary motions
and giving to the world the three
great laws of motion bearing his name,
Kepler turned his attention to comets.
After carefully observing in 1607 the
comet which proved eventually to be
Halley's, he announced that to the best
of his knowledge the head of a comet
becomes, vaporized by the heat of the
sun, and that particles are driven there
from to form the tail by a force of
repulsion that was explained easily
enough by the then accepted theory of
light. According to this theory the sun
is continually emitting particles of mat
ter which travel through sp'ace at enor
mous velocities. On reaching the comet
a portion of the energy of these cor
puscles becomes Imparted to the comet
ary material, and there results a tail
pointed away from the sun.,
Newton, the great founder of the law
of gravitation in 1CS7. did not entirely
accept this explanation. While believ
ing Implicitly in the emission theory of
light, he tried to prove that gravity was
universal, and consequently that all
celestial motions must be the result of
gravitation, and, therefore, he thought,
the repulsions producing comets' tails

At the beginning of the month Mars

of determining the orbit of a comet was j
universally adopted, and at the present
time Is still regarded as the most ex
peditious and convenient method of
calculation when extreme refinement is
not required. Although only an ama
teur in astronomy (hie was by profes
sion a physician), his name stands writ
in large letters in the history of comet
ary discoveries. In his time electricity'
was beginning to be studied, and Its
phenomena to be Investigated by the
experiments of Coulomb, 1785. In
electricity was manifested, for the first
time, repulsions between material par-,
IiBiv of -Gravitation.
The investigations of Olbers showed
him that the heads of comets obeyed
implicitly the laAv of gravitation, but
on the other hand the tails acted as If
repulsed from the sun. After discard
ing-, in 1812, the views of both Kepler
aiiu. -ewiun us unienaoie, since
could not be based on experiment, he
very naturally assumed that these
forces might be "something analogous
to our electrical attractions and repul
sions." SIn,ce electricity explains re
pulsions, it is easy to see why the
theory of Olbers should be accepted and
held, even up to the present time.
The exact action of this force, and
the further theories that have been pro
pounded till we come to the interesting
one held by astronomers of today will
have to be left till the next issue.
On Dec. 29, Prof. Barnard saw Hal
ley's comet rather faintly in a five-inch
telescope. It then showed a slender
and faint -tail 15m long, pointing to the
northeast. On the following night,
Prof. Frost, the director of the
Yerkes observatory, with Prof. Park
hurst. obtained the first spectrum
of Halley's comet, which showed
that It consisted of a combination o
hydrogen nrd carbon'. As the comet
