HALLEVS COMET DIMINISHING
Heavenly Wanderer Suocufnbing to
Sun's Heat, Says Astronomer.
H alley's comet appears to be disinte
grating as it draws nearer the sun, ac
cording to observations made of It be
fore it went into temporary eclipse a
few weeks ago. This was stated by
Professor E. E. Barnard of Yerkes ob
servatory, who was one of the first to
photograph the celestial wanderer on
Its reappearance last fall and who baa
been studying it during the winter.
"The comet may surprise as by un
expected developments in the next few
days," said Professor Barnard the oth
er day. "The observations which bave
been made up to date show that it Is
diminishing in substance and luminos
ity. It probably was a great comet
when It shone down on the boats of
William the Conqueror as they crossed
the English channel, bat since then it
has been losing power.
"We have learned that as the mass
of such a body grows smaller Its sur
face relatively increases; hence the
growth of the tali of a comet indi
cates the dissipation of its solid sub
stance. The rays of the sun act on
the diaphanous tali with disintegrat
ing force, actually seeming to tear It
apart Photographs taken a few hours
apart show fragments of the tall torn
off and floating away.
"Thus the tail of a comet is con
stantly changing. It is never twice
the same and indicates that the body is
wasting away into space. Finally it
becomes merely a pack of meteors aft
er all the gaseous matter is forced out
of It. We know that a pack of me
teors was swinging around the sun in
a regular orbit In 1833 and in 1866,
when showers of meteors fell on the
earth In 1899. however, when they
again were due, only a few fell, show
ing that the pack bad been swerved
from its course.
"These meteors are supposed to be
the solid nucleus of the comet Some
persons seem to think that nothing
would happen If the nucleus of a com
et struck the earth. I am of the opin
ion that a good deal would happen if
a body of meteors as hard as Iron
should collide with this planet There
is no danger of this from Halley's
comet however. Its tall is likely to
sweep us, but the head will pass mil
lions of miles beneath the earth."

The general .expectation had been

that it was ready to report.
When the jurors entered the

Miller beside his wife. Grunden sat

John Byron, popularly known as
"By." Sayler, a stock buyer and
banker of Crescent City. 111., was
murdered July 11, 1909, in his own

in the fact that Mrs. Sayler and Dr.
Miller had for a long time previous
to the killing been on such terms of
intimacy as to make Sayler a laugh

that will safeguard the ordinary buyer

only what the manufacturer calls
