Hatters Run a Race.
Steamboat racing on the St. Croix
river is a pleasant pastime in which
some of the crews occasionally in
dulgi , says the Lumberman." At
times- a race becomes a most exciting
event and is watched with interest
by tie inhabitants along the shore,
and the boat that is unfortunate
enough to lie left in the wake of the
othet is the object of considerable
scon ami derision from the small
boys who collect on the banks. It is
an o casion for some pretty lively
betting, tijo. and when a race is
known to be on at Stillwater, the
outcome is awaited with a good deal
of in.erc-t, and the losing crew must
settl : Jor their defeat w hen they re
turn in a manner that is peculiar to

SAW THE COMET
The Celeittlal New Comer Viewed to Good
t( . h , obtained of it. It
is not thought the new comet will be
visible more than two weeks longer.
The newcomer is thus far a perfect
stranger to the astronomers, who are
on speaking terms with every comet
that has shown itself within the past
thousand years or so, but as yet none
of them have recognized in this
one acquaintance of former years.
It is therefore called the -'Rordanie"
comet, in honor of the astronomer
who first discovered it on July 8.
On the following evening it was seen
by several astronomers in different
parts of the country. Professors
Swift and Main saw it at Rochester,
Prof. Reese of Columbia college, saw
it, and John E. Lew is, the astronomer
of Ansonia. Conn., saw it and took a
photograph of it. So did Prof. El
kins, of the Yale observatory. Prof.
Brooks, director of the Smith obser
vatory at Geneva, found it Monday
night and has been neeping it it ever
since whenever it was dark enough,
but Friday night he telegraphed that
he could not see it because it was so
cloudy. All these astronomers agree
as to the location of t he comet, and
all agree that the motion is very rap
id in the right ascension and "in the
direction of the body of the great
(ioo:l Place to View It.
People in this vicinity can see it
better than those farther south and
east. The comet ought to be visible
at any time after it gets dark enough
to see the stars at all. A very good
way to find it is to first locate the big
dipper. Then draw a line through
the tw o stars which make the handle.
Let that line run dow n through the
stars at the lower and outer body of
the dipper. Then when the line has
extended about as far from this star
at the lower corner as the star men
tioned is distant from the starting
point, you ought to be able to find
the comet, which last night was very
close to the two bright stars on the
right fore foot of the greater bear,
and not far from the hip bone of the
