WHEN -this is- read, the most 'bril
liant period of Halley's comet
for the year 1910 will be a
thing of the past, and the comet wlH
be each night becoming fainter and
fainter. After 3t first appeared in the
morning skies It did seem as if "we "were
to be doomed, to disappointment for

these ominous -warnings, the comet ap

ers well know, from having seen it with
their own eyes. The interested amateur

As many readers know from bitter ex

to get up morning after morning in the
hope of seeing the comet, and then be

country interfered greatly with obser

was not in She least a disappointing one,
and it was just as remarkable as we
had expected HaMey's comet to be. It
has not been at any time as sliperb an
object as the great comet of 18S2, which

IiCngtli of Comct'H Tail.
For the benefit of those who saw the
comet and estimated the length of the
tail, we give some reliable data for as
certaining its length. As is well known,
the astronomer measures the angular
length by che number of degrees sub
tended at the eye by two lines run
ning out to the object to be measured.
With a. little practice it is as easy to
estimate th angle In degrees as it is to
guess at the height of a fence in feet.
For obtaining a value of small angular
distance, It is well to remember that the
sun and moon are each a little more
ihan half a degree In diameter. The
distance between the extreme stars in
the belt of Orion Is close to three de
grees. A more useful measure (since it
may always be seen is the angle be
tween the pointers of the Dipper, which
Is a little more than five degrees,
thouji the tail was invisible on April
12 (mainly from being seen in a dawn
lit sky), a tail of 1 degree was seen on
April 15, of 8 degrees on tho ISth, which
had Increased to 15 degrees by the last
of April. On a photograph taken by pro
fessor Barnard on the morning of May
5, the whole extent of tail was 20 de
grees. On May 13 a naked eye view of
the comet from New York city showed
it to have a ail at least 35 degrees in
length. If this had ben pointing
straight up from the horizon, it would
have stretched more than one-third of
the way to the zenith. The tail, though
faint, was clearly visible, spreading out
in a fan-shape till it stretched five de
grees across at the end of the tail. It
was a magnificent sight with the morn
ing star Venus close by and very bril
liant, and those who saw a comet forj

During the entire month of June we are going to reduce our fees less
than ONE-HALF the usual charges, and although they have never been
exhorbitant still, many people in need of special treatment have neglected
consulting us for fear that they would be excessive. Many do not con
sider the fact that we furnish all medicines for the cure, that we spare
neither pains nor money in securing the best of everything for our patients
and that we have expended thousands of dollars in equipping our offices
and are giving them as good treatment as they can get in Chicago or New
York. With all this, our charges for curing many uncomplicated Chronic
Diseases do not exceed FIFTEEN DOLLARS.
A consultation, a careful examination and our opinion and advice will
cost you nothing nor obligate you to take treatment, and when necessary
we will use the X-RAYS, Cystoscope and Microscope, or make a chemical
Some people who read our ads the past two weeks in which we stated
that we would cure Varicocele, Stricture and Piles for the small sum of
Fifteen dollars, were very skeptical. The following letters taken from
many we have received, tell what we are doing:

that I write you that the little oper
ation was a perfect success. When
I read your advertisement stating
that you would cure varicocele for

I will go up and see where the
catch in this ad. Is. as I had some
experience with advertising doctor's

I am truly grateful. Would prefer
that you not use my name in the
papers, but will talk with anyone.

good. They said she had eczema. Hor
eyes became crossed from the disease
and her scalp -was a solid scale all over.
The burning and itching was so severe
that she could not rest, day or night.
TVe had about given up all hopes -when
-we read an advertisement of the Cuti

of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Oint
ment and one bottle of Cuticura Resolv

After the first dose of the Cuticura Re

and applied the Cuticura Ointment.
Then she began to improve rapidly and
In two -weeks the scale came off her head
and new hair began to grow. In a very

perfectly straight -when she recovered
and have been so ever since. She is now
sixteen years of age and is a 'picture of
health. TVe know the Cuticura Reme
dies cured her and have used them in
our family ever since.
"We used the Cuticura Remedies
about five weelcs, regularly, and then
we could not tell she had been affected
with any disease. She suffered with
burning and itching and hard, scaly,
dandruff-looking scabs all over her head
and in places on her body. We used no
other treatments after we found out what
the Cuticura Remedies would do for her.

Diameter of Pianetw.
Though the angular diameter of the
sun and moon are about the same, their
real diameter in miles are very much
different because the moon is so much
nearer us. In the samf way ahe length
of the tail in miles may be ascertained
when we know the dis4an"e in miles
that it ia from us. Early in May the
tail was 25.000,000 miles long-.
The prevalence of superstitious fear
in this year of our Lord, 1910. with the
daily newspaper ready to disseminate
the splendid results of modern science,
Sives some inkling of the dread that
those monsters of the sky must have
caused In years gone by.
This Is being written (May 14. before
we pass through the tall of the comet
on May 18), with the confident expecta
tion that we shall be alive to tell the
tale after that day.
?io Danger Frcai fa. '
If the truth were wholly known, there
was no danger whatever from the oyan-
T ogen in the tall. The composition of the
comet and its tail is made known by the j
spectroscope. Early in May the spectra
were of remarkable interest- Plates
taken t Yrkes, Lick and Flagstaff
observatories aglee in showing a strong
continuous spectrum with faint traces
of Fraunhofer lines due to reflected
punlight, with strong bands due to hy
drocarbon together with the Cyanogen
band, the strongest in the whole spec
trum. In addition the sodium lines ap
peared, but not so prominently as in
Comet A. 1910. The strange behavior
of the spectrum was that though the
cyanogen band was strong in the head
of the comet, it was lacking in tlio tali.
Moreover, the spectroscope test is an ex
cessively delicate one, capame of de
tecting minute quantities of material.
For instance, if a grain of ordinary salt
were divided into a million parts, and
one of these placed in gas flame, the
spectrum would display the 'certain
badge showing the presence of sodium
two strong lines in the yellow part of
To harm life on the earth, the cyano
gen would have to be mixed with the air
in comparatively large quantities. The
sm?Jl amount of this poisonous gas in
the tail as reveled by the spectroscope,
and the extreme rarity of the tail com
pared with our atmosphere shows the
utter absurdity of imagining injury to
us. No doubt the comet ip the evening
sky will have presented as fine an ap
pearance as it displayed in the morn
ings, and much of novel interest will
haAo been learned in the fortnight be
fore this is read.
Comet Still Visible.
Though the comet is getting fainter
each night, it should be readily fol
lowed throughout June with the naked
eye by those who know where to look
for it. In fact the result of reliable es
timation by Dr. Ebe-il show that the
comet should still be seen with the
narvt-vi e c iiuiii i to Lite enu oi .imy. ja.l j
the end will be found a table to assist
in finding the comet. By referring to
the map it will be seen that it is moving
eastwards through the uninteresting
constellation Sextans. The only bright
star that it approaches is Regulus In
the Sickle, which is 12 degrees north on
During June the snnis moving east
ward among the stars faster than the
comet, and the angle between them Is
being lessened with the result -that the
cornet sets earlier each night.
The numbers given for the stellar
magnitude of the comet is an estimate
of the effect of the whole light of the
comet on the eye. A sixth magnitude
star is at the limit of vision for a keen
sighted eye, and the comet will not be
as faint as that till July 1. Those who
follow the comet after june 10 will be
bothered by moonlight, and the fainter
portions of the tail will be lost to view
on the sky Illuminated by moonlight.
The sun is at the summer solstice on
June 22 at 2:49 a. m. Eastern standard
time. In spite of the fact that the
greatest number of hours of daylight
occur on this day, the sun does not set
latest, as may be seen by referring to
the table below.
Mercury is a morning star and will
be visible toward the last an hour be
fore sunrise from June 18 to June 23.
Those who observed the comet In
April and May saw the bright morning
star Venus. She has decreased In
brightness since then, but Is still a fine
object. On the morning of June 4, she
passes very close to the moon on the
north of it. On the following morning
Venus and Saturn will be so close to
gether that it will be hard to separate
them by the naked eye, and they will
appear In the telescope together.
Mars is still visible in the west in the
early evening, but It is now very faint.
