a beautiful spectacle in the western

more than an ordinary meeting between

system at such close range that their
lieht for a time blends and tfcey ap

enough to be notable. Even the
casual star gszer must huve observed in
the past few weeks that these orbs had
been rapidly approaching each other.
Trey are in tbe same quarter of the
heavens still. Both arc in the south

Venus. This body shines with a soft,
pure white liiihl, while Jupiter has a
whitish yellow lustre.
Venus is moving rapidly to the east
with respect to the other stars, and 9 or
10 days hence she will be several moon
breaths away from Jupiter, which sets
earlier and earlier every night, and on
March 20 it will s;Lk wiih the sun and

in view until about 9 o'clock. Venus
