THE ABGTJS, MONDAY, JULY 20, 1903.
Presented to John Buford Post,
C. A. R. by E. P. Denk-mann.
FEOM VIOKSBUEG BATTLEFIELD
Over a Ton of the Strange and Tor
rible Missiles Once Fired
Through the kindness of E. P.
Denkmann John Uuford post, No. 243,
G. A. K., of this city, was today pre
sented" with one of the-' finest addi
tions to the collection of war relics
on exhibition at Memorial hall that
has yet been received. It consists of
over a ton of shells, eannon balls and
other missiles that were tired in the
battle of Yieksburg and that were re
cently picked up on that historic bat
tlefield. The interesting relics were gather
ed up by the crew of the steamer
Weyerhaeuser, now on the lower riv
er, and were transferred from that
boat to another, being brought all the
way here by water. They reached the
city some time ago, but were not
placed in Memorial hall till this morn
ing, when Mr. Denkmann had them
delivered at the court house and they
were put in place in the southeast
corner of the room by C. T. Knox, as
sisted by other members of John Du
All Slira of Shot.
In the collection are a 'number of
Springfield rifle balls and canister, in
addition to the larger shot and shells.
The smaller balls were put away and
will be displaced later in a cabinet.
Th-e most interesting, probably,
among the rust-covered missiles are
the shells, which are of a variety of
shapes and sizes, some being of for
eign manufacture and uM together
giving a vivid idea of the manner in
which warfare was carried on 40
years ago. The largest shell weighs
about 1"0 pounds. All are. deeply pit
ted from the corroding effects of nat
ural forces that have operated upon
them for so many vears.

EORELLI'S COMET NOW
VISIBLE TO NAKED EYE
Have you seen the comet? There is
one visible in the heavens evenings
and a little searching will reveal it.
If you are not up on astronomy and
do not know Beta Cygni from the
North Star, look toward the west and
at an unglo of about 45 degrees this
evening, scanning the heavens until
you see the comet. It does not look
like a star, being larger and more
hazy. After you have located it, call
in the neighbors and then everyone
have a look.
The mysterious wanderer is speed
ing nearer the earth at the rate of 100
miles a second, and would reach here
at the present rate in about :5,0(K
years. It is now nearer to the earth
than to any other planet or to the
sun, but it is approaching the entire
solar system. It will be visible to the
naked eye for three weeks, and then
it will fade away until not even the
strongest tcIcscox can find it.
The lest way to locate it is from
the brilliant star of the first magni
tude. Alpha Cygni, which outshines
all others in. the northwest at 9
o'clock in the evening. Below- Alpha
Cygni is Beta Cygni, both being mem
bers of the Swan. The comet will be
near Beta Cygni.
The Swan is really a cluster of
stars in the shape of a cross, which
can bei traced from Alpha Cygni. Beta
Cygni is the bottom star in the ii
right part of the cross. Borelli's
comet has two lails, but neither of
them will be visible to the naked eye.
The distinguishing feature of the
comet is the haze of light which sur
rounds it. This is not apparent with
Except as an object of interest,
Borelli's comet will have no influ
ence upon the earth and its inhabi
tants, according to astronomers. It
does not even affect the weather.
