Where was the comet last night"'
And tiie night before? You don't
know? Neither does your neighbor,
and it is doubtful it even the astron
omers could tell you without leferring
to their charts and diagrams.
The comet has experienced about
the same "run" as tho Lincoln pen
nies. There was a day or two last
summer when a few easily-excited per
sons paid as high as 2." cents for one ,
ol the new coins. Now the same per
son will hae to think twice to re
member what a Lincoln penny looks
A few days ago about S o'clock at
night, every man woman and child,
while, black or otherwise, .was either
straining his eyes 1o' make out what
tho astronomers said was a fail, or
asking someone to show him where
he could see tho comet.
.lust ask a friend in a casual way
if lie has seen the cornel tonight, and
lie probably will reply: "What c ?
Oh, yes. No, I haven't seen it for
a week. Is it still in sight?"
Halley's was an extremely over-advertised
attraction. Had it come any
where near the spectacular exhibit
described in the advance press notices,
it would have played to crowded
No, it wouldn't have been crowded
houses, and there would have been
no need for the "S. It. O." sign, hut
lb re would have been a large audi
ence each evening.
Even the moon "put on" a show last
week that was far ahead ol anything
Halley's has given us. Since it is so
near the close of the season at the
Fnivfrsity of Missouri and it has
ben a good season, too the moon
show last week was a benefit per
formance for the Strollers' Club. The
attendance that night was unusually
large, and the meeting of tin club
lasted later than usual. Perhaps the
comet lias retired in favor of coin

Beginning June 6, 1910, the subscription rate for the
Missourian will be 40c per month or $4.00 per year,
but we have- decided to give all our old subscribers
and any new ones the opportunity of subscribing dur
ing the month of May at the present rate $2.00
per year, cash in advance.
No daily newspaper in Missouri charges less than
40c per month or $4.00 per year, and the Missou
rian's raise in its rate is made necessary, owing to the
fact that the paper is now published six days in the
week during the entire year.
We trust all our old subscribers and hundreds of
new ones will take advantage of this low rate during
this month. Call at our new office 1 7 North 8th
street, telephone us or mail your subscription.
