SATURN, with its marvelous rings
and Venus, peerless in its bril
liancy among the planets, will be
in the evening sky in October to com
penensate for the passing of Jupiter,
who has been so interestingly in view
for months past. Jupiter wiU still be
with us during October in the early
evening sky but is getting so low that
It is not well in view.
There is no more interesting tele
scopic object than Saturn. Galleo was
the first to see the remarkable forma
tion surrounding the globe of the plan
et, but his telescope was so imperfect
that it appeared to him as a. crescent
shaped handle on either side of the
planet. The honor of the discovery of
its true nature rests with Huygens. a
Dutch astronomer, who saw it as a ring
in 1655. , .
Saturn's ring consists of innumerable
small satellites forming two main rings
that are bright and plainly discernible,
and an Inner dark ring, commonly
known as the "crape ring" The bright
rings are said to show further subdi
visions under favorable seeing condi
tions. The outer diameter, of the ring
formation is 173,000 miles, and the com
bined breadth of the rings is about 30,
000 miles, and its average thickness is
estimated at 100 miles. The globe of the
planet is 76,470 miles in diameter at
the equator, and Its polar diameter is
CG90 miles less, giving a flattened ap
pearance at the poles that is plainly
noticeable in any telescope that will
disk that planet. The bright divisions in
the ring are not visible in less than a
three and one-half inch telescope, and
the crape ring can only be seen in the
Saturn's OrlU Changing.
The plane of the orbit of Saturn is
constantly changing in its relation to
the earth and as a consequence the rings
coincide with the plane of the earth
every 15 years, at which time the rings
are seen edgewise to us, and are prac
tically invisible, showing only as bright
thin line on either side of the planet as
though it was pierced with a darning
needle. Such was the condition in 1907.
The rings are now finely in view and
will continue to widen out until 1914
when the order will be reversed and
they will apparently gradually close
up which, however, will not ensue until
Big shipment just received.

1936. We now see the southern surface
of the rings.
Saturn has 10 satellites or moons and
their orbits are widely extended. The
largest, Titian, is sometimes visible in
a two-inch telescope. Two or three oth
ers are resolvable in a four inch. The
others are only visible in the highest
power telescopes. s
Venus, which has phases similar to
our moon, that are visible in the low
power telescope, is consequently an in
teresting object for observation. Its
brilliance is so great, however, that
its surface markings are only developed
by the highest power telescopes and
at that are not very definite.
There is a well marked snower of
meteors which occurs from the 18th to
the 20th of October. They are called the
Orionids because they appear to radi
ate from the upper part of the constel
lation Orion. The observer should not
expect to see many of them, but even a
few will reward watching. They are
bright and swift in movement. Inas
much as Orion does not rise until 10
oclock on the 20th of October It will be
well to wait until late In the evening
before beginning to watch for the me
teors. They will be seen rising from
the eastern horizon.
The Planets for October.
Mercury will be In conjunction with
the sun in Virgo on October 4, and an
evening star in Libra On the 31st. but
will not be well placed for observation.
Venus is in Virgo on the first and is
gradually drawing away from the sun;
It should be well in view during Octo
ber in the western evening sky. On the
31st It will be In Scorpio.
Mars is too near the sun for obser
vation this month.
Jupiter is still an evening star in
Scorpio, but is getting too low to be
well seen unless looked for in the early
evening; it sets about 9:30 p. m. Venus

at 7:04 a. m. It will be visible as a

A Xcw Comet.
Prof. Edward C. Pickering announces
through the Harvard College Observa
tory bulletin under date of September
10, 1912, that he had received from
Prof. Kobold, at Kiel, Germany, a ca
blegram announcing that a comet was
discovered by Prof Gale at Sydney,
Australia, on September 8. The follow
ing position is given. Right ascension
13 deg., 37 m. 1 s. Declination south
3G deg. 31 m. 2 s.
Another cablegram from Kiel to Hr
vard on September 11. states that Gale's
comet was observed by Prager. at San
tiago. Chili, and that it was visible to
the naked eye. Prager gave its posi
tion as Right Ascension 13 hrs. 54 m.
2s. Declination south 33 deg. 10 m.
. Harvard bulletin No. 497. under date
September 19, gives the following
ephemeris of the Gales comet, by Dr.
Kbell of the Kiel observatory:
G. M. T. Right Ascencion September,
19.5, 14 h. 36 m, 40s; declination south

S. B. HAUTMAN, M. D,
' Having a little business in one 6f
the federal offices .t the city, after it
was finished I fell In conversation with
the official in charge concerning Pe
runa. I mention his business to show
that the conversation was conducted
with a man of more than ordinary in
telligence, being an employe of the
government who had passed through
several civil service examinations. He
said to me, not knowing who I was:
"I think a great deal of this patent
medicine business ought to be stopped.
Especially such remedies as Feruna.
Peruna, as you know, Is a stimulant
and contains eighteen or twenty per
cent of alcohol. People take it without
knowing what it is, and such remedies
ought to be prohibited by law. My
own mother took Peruna once. She had
a couch, night sweats, was growing
emaciated and weak. Several doctors
...vnmlno3 ii. TYif nninlon was eX-
J pressed several times that she was go
ing Into- consumption, une inuutiu n
was chronic bronchitis. At any rate,
her condition was quite serious. She
whs unable to get any relief from the
doctors she consulted, although she took
their medicines faithfully for nearly a
year. Some one told her about Peruna,
and against my wish and against the
wishes of our family, she began taking
It. At once sub iiuiiiuicu, emu ... ..o,
I than six months she apparently was
well, we aio. an we coum w uutuui
age her In taking Peruna, but she per
sisted. It finally came out in the mag
azines that Peruna contained alcohol.
Then we knew at once what it was
that benefited my mother, it was sim
ply th; alcohol that Peruna contained.
We had the laugh on mother. We have
not ceased to make fun of her yet about
her being cured with a dilution ot alco
hol. She seems to be embarrassed by
our teasing her. but Is very stubborn.
She says that if she were to be sick in
the same' way again she would cer
tainly get Peruna and take it alcohol
or no alcohol. So you see If people will
persist In such foolishness there ought
to be a law to prevent them."
I ventured to Interpose a question.
"You say the doctors could not cure
her, and yet you say Peruna did cure
her. What difference does It make to
vou whether It was alcohol or some
other drug that effected the cure?"
-Well. I don't know that it makes
any difference, but it is deceiving the.
people to give, them alcohol even
though it does cure them." he said.
I replied. "Why, I cannot exactly un
derstand that Alcohol is a drug, the
same as quinine or morphine. If alco
hol cures certain diseases where Is the
deception I understand that the Pe
runa people print on the label of each
bottle the per cent, of alcohol contained
In Peruna. Each patient may read it if
he pleases. I cannot see where there is
"Well, I would not take Peruna," he
persisted. "Now, I was sick, I had a
stomach disease. A violent pain, that
would come on about an hour or two
after each meal. It grew worse and
worse. I was also constipated. I con
sulted several doctors In our city about
my health. I went to see a prominent
specialist in New York City, paid out a
great deal of money, but no help. One
time I was having a bad spell on the
train. The gentleman who occupied the
next seat was a retired physician with
whom I had been acquainted. He said
to me, My friend, if you want to get
well I would advise you to take a glass
of lager beer before each meal. I
think that will cure you." Having fol
lowed the directions of several good
physicians without any assistance, I
thought I would try the beer. In a
very short time I found it was helping
me, and I got entirely well. My bowels
became regular and I had no more pain.
No more distress after meals. Now. If
my mother had used some remedy like
that it would be all right But to per
sist In using some secret remedy like
Peruna, I think it is outrageous."
Again I ventured to ask some ques
tions. I asked: "What do you suppose
It was in the lager beer that effected
"Why, I presume it was the stimulant
it contained. Yes, no doubt It was the
"You know, of course, that the stim
ulant in beer Is alcohol, the same as in
wine or whiskey or any other alco
"Yes. I have heard say that beer con
tains about five per cent of alcohol."
"That Is correct" I replied. "You
took a bottle of beer before each meal,
"In doing so you were drinking a pint
or a five per cent solution of alcohol."
"Yes. I suDPOse so."
"Five per cent would be one-twentieth.
As each pint contains sixteen
ounces you were then taking a little
less than an ounce of alcohol before
"But you objected to your mother's!
taking alcohol in the Peruna, and yet
she was taking far less alcohol than,
you were. As I understand it. the dose
of Peruna is one tablespoonfuL Sup
posing it to be twenty per cent alco
hol, there would be in each dose one-
fifth of a tablespoonful of alcohol,
which would be about half a teaspoon
ful, while you were taking at least
four teaspoonfuls of alcohol in your
bottle of beer. And yet you objected
to your mother's taking Peruna on the
ground that the Peruna contains alco
hoi. In my opinion It -was the alco
hol that cured both ot you. Your moth-
er evidently was cured of a very seri
ous ailment Peruna contains alcohol.
It was undoubtedly the alcohol that
cured her. or at least helped to. The
other Ingredients of Peruna might have
assisted, no doubt did. In your case it
was the alcohol in the beer that cured
you of the stomach difficulty. Peruna
has cured thousands of such cases."
"Well, I declare," he replied, "I never
thought of it in that way before.
There has been so much said about al
cohol being poisonous that I suppose
my mind has been prejudiced against
It But if as you say there is also al
cohol in beer, the same kind of alco
hol as is used In Peruna, I cannot see.
where the difference l myself"
"Well," I replied, "you have been do
ing exactly what the average man and
woman is doing. You have aUowed
your mind to become prejudiced against
Peruna on account of its containing al
cohol. Without stopping to look into
the matter at all you have assumed
that there is something terribly dis
reputable about remedies containing al-
cohoL The fact Is, however, that most
all fluid medicines, whether prescribed
by a doctor or put up as a patent medi
cine, contain a certain amount of alco
hol. It was alcohol that cured your
mother. It was alcohol that cured you.
In my opinion, alcohol in some form
or other is making more cures than
all other drugs combined. This is not
saying, however, that Peruna contains
only alcohol, for it does contain
excellent remedies besides alcohol.
But- I do contend that the alcohol
In Peruna Is not only not harm
ful to those who take it, but If taken
In the doses prescribed on the bottle
it will do a great deal of good and
there Is not the slightest danger of
forming a drug habit"
