A Mew Crase.
A new amusement has been invented
and is the rage in Jacksonville. "The
scheme is write the letter "D" on a
sheet of paper while standing at a table
and try to make the right foot swing in
the opposite direction from that in which
the pencil is following the paper. No
one, bo far heard from, has been able to
perform the feat. Tou get your foot
winging nicely in the opposite direction
from that in which you know you are
going to make the big loop of the "D,"
and firmly resolve that you will keep it
giing the same way while you are
writing, bat just as soon as you get
started on the letter your foot gets the
other way The experiment is prol fij of
The Celestial Tramp Will Hardly do the
Earth Any Daaaage How to See Him
An astronomer, expressing himself on
the new celestial visitor, the comet, says
he rises in the east, or rather a little
north of east, before sundown, but of
course cannot be seen until after dark.
About 6 o'clock he can be found about
half way up the heavens in the east, and
at 8 o'clock Is on or near the meridian
and almost overhead. To be more exct,
the comet is 24 deg. and some minutes
south of our celestial latitude, but as the
sky from zenith to horizon is 90 deg., or
nearly four times as great, the comet is
comparatively nearly overheal when on
the meridian. As b.fore sail, this is
about 9 o'clock in ti.ii longitmie. At
midnight he is about half way down
the western t,ky and almost due wett of
us, and at 3 a.m. he can be found a little
north of W-.-st near iho horizon. The
best time to look for the comet and to
watch for thooting stars would be about
9 o'clock were it not for the moon. The
crescent of Luna is pretty large now,
and getting bigger every ni-;ht, and ts
long as 6he is on or near the meridian,
only the brightest stars in the southern
sky can be clearly seen. She is also
nearing the comet, and about midnight
tonight will pass to the east of his ma
jesty at a distance of about 9 deg., and
will continue on rapidly, making about
14 deg every night (in 24 hours.)
Jupiter and the Moon.
Between 11 and 12 o'clock tonight
the moon will be in cot j auction with
Jupiter, and will seemingly almost touch
the great planet. There will in fact, be
an occultation of the planet for some
parts of the earth. The two bodies will
come close enough, however,(to make the
meeting a very interesting one, particu
larly as the dark side of the moon will be
toward the planet. The brightness of
the moon will completely obscure the
comet, and so Mr. Jupiter and Miss Moon
will have the undivided attention of all
