THE STAR OF BETLEHEM'
It was a Miraculous Phenomenon. and
Haa Appeared Only Once.
r Prof. Chas, A. Young in Sunday
The star of Bethlehem craze has
broken out again, and the papers are
printing more or less extensive and
sensational articles upon the subject,
and predicting the reappearance of the
star in August next.
The notion is based upon the well
known fact that in 1572 a brilliant
"temporary, star" was observed by the
great Danish astronomer. Treho Brahe,
in the constallation of Cassiopeia, and
the further fact that old annals con
tain statements, more or less vague, of
siiliar appearances in the years 942
and 1264, and in the same part of the
From these facts certain persons
with remarkable logical agility havE
deduced the very questionable infer
enee that all three phenomena werE
appearances of a single object, whice
is supposed to be a variable star of the
same type as Omicron Ceti, or Mira
but with a period of over three hun.
dred years, instead of eleven months.
Furthermore, reckoning back three
periods of three hundred and fifteer
years each would bring us to the
Chi istian era ; and this satisfies ou
enthusiastic investigators that the
"star in the east," which heralded the
nativity at Bethlehem, was identica
with the star of Tycho.
The star of 1362 appears to havi
been by far the most remarkable anc
finest of all the twelve temporary star.
sa far observed. It was a magnifi
cent object for several months; s<
brilliant that it could be seen at mid
day,-rivaling, and perhaps outshin
ing, Venus even at her brightest.
Tycho observed it with great care
and fixed its position with all the ac
curacy attainable in those pre-tele
scopic days ; but this degree of accurac
is insufficient to enable us to say witi
with certainty whether the star is, o1
is not, identical with some one of the
numerous telescopic stars now visiblh
in the immediate neighborhood of the
place he. determined. This place is
very nearly on the prolorgation of the
line drawn from Gamma Cassiopeih
through Kappa, and about one and
half degrees from the latter star,-just
on the northern edge of the Milk'
Twro reasons make it very improba
ble that Tycho's star can be a trui
periodic variable. In the first place th<
period is too long. No knowi
variable has a period exceding tw<
years. In MIr. Chandler's catalogu'
of two hundred and twenty-fivi
variable stars (the most recent an<
trustworthy of such catalogues), the
periods of one hundred and eighty ar
given asdetermined with more or iss
certainty. Only four of the one hun
dred and eighty exceed five hundre<
days. As to -the remaining forty-five
it may be noted that twelve are temn
porary stars which have been observe<
only onee, while fourteen are irregu
larly variable; that is, not periodic
This leaves nineteen in respect te
which observations are not yet suffi
eient to decide their exact character
The second reason for doubting th
periodity of Tycho's star is the rapidit
with which it blazed up. in the cas
of all known periodic variables of th
MIira type, the increase of lighti
grad ual-more rapid than the fall
it is true, but still not sudden. Th
star usually requires some weeks to at
tain its maximum. In the case c
Tycho's star it is probable (the evi
dence is not quite conclusive), and ii
the case of most of the other "tempo
raries" it is certain, that the bright
ness reached its limit within a fes
(lays, or even in a few hours-the sta
flashed out, so to speak.
As regards the question whethe
.Tyeho's star could have been the "sta
of Bethlebeni," it would appear suffi
eient to point out that in the latitud<
oft Palestine it would have been seen a
a "star in the north," never a "star ii
the east." It is true that nineteel
hundred years ago the distance of Ty
cho's star from the celestial pole woul<
have been (on account of procession
about ten degrees greater than now
but this would still leave it "circum
polar," so that, as seen from Jerusa
lemn, it could never have appeared tF
overhang the manger at Bethlehem.
To sum up, wye may say, then, t'aa
while we cannot absolutely assert tha
Tycho's star cannot possibly be identi
cal with the stars of 945 and 1264, such
identity is extremely improbable, an<
there is not much reason to expec
that the star will ever reappear. Tha

How Sturgeons Are Caught Out In Winne
[New York Sun.]
They fish with fishlines six miles
long in Winnebago Lake, Wisconsin,
and use 20,000 hooks an every line.
If they don't haul up 2,000 fish every
time they lift a line they don't think
they are having very good luck. And
every fish will weigh from twenty to
seventy pounds. That's the way they
fish for sturgeon out there. One of
these fishlines will reach half way
across the lake. It is a rope an inch in
diameter. It is stretched out into the
lake by means of boats, large buoys
being attached to it at intervals to keep
it on the surface. The 20,000 hooks,
baited with pieces of meat or fish, are
lowered to the bottom of the lake by
snoods of the proper length which are
fastened to the main !ine. It takes
twenty boats, with two men in each,
to look after this big fishline. Each
boat has 1,000 of the snoods in its
charge. These are tied to the main
line 18 inches apart, and to bait all the
hooks once requires not less than 1,000
pounds of bait. It takes the forty
men and twenty boats ten hours to set
the line for the first time. After that the
fishermen are employed in going over
the line, hauling in the sturgeon
that have been caught on the hooks,
and rebaiting where it is necessary.
To haul in a seventy-pound sturgeon
from the bottom of the lake is an ex
citing piece of work ; but it requires
more strength than skill, as the fish
always has the hook several inches
down his throat, having sucked bait
and all down without any regard to
consequences. There is no danger of
losing the fish unless the hook breaks.
When the fish is hauled to the surface
agaff as big as a meat hook is thrust into
the boat and knocked in the head with
a heavy maul. The hook that capture3
it is cut out of its throat, rebaited, and
thrown back into the lake. The aver
age catch of sturgeon is one to every
ten hooks. When a boat is loaded
with all it can carry of sturgeon the
fishermen row back to shore, where
others take the fish and dispose of
them. The fishermen know the par
ticular sections of the line on which
they work by the arrangement of the
buoys. These are placed ten feet
Iapart, and one in 150 of them is painted
red. The space betwcen the red buoys
contains 1,000 hooks. The seciions are
numbered and the boats are numbered.
The boats work the sections as their
numbers correspond with the section
numbers. While the average catch is
one sturgeon to ten hooks, it is no un
common thing for the fishermen to
find but one or two on an entire sec
tion of 1,000 hooks. The very next
Ssection may contain the full average
of 100 and perhaps more.
The Lake Winnebago sturgeon is
Shighly prized among the lumbermenl
and others in the region. Its flesh is
Sfiner and of better flavor than the rlver
or salt water sturgeon of the East. The
fish sells at cents per pound retail.
Large quantities are salted and smoked
-for use in the lumber camps.

GREENvILLE, April 17.-The State
rAlliance Exchange of South Carolina,
of which State Senator M. L. Donald
son, of this county, is manager, and
whose head office is located in this.
city, is probably the most important
and far reaching undertaking that the
-Farmers' Alliance in this State has ever
fathered. While operating indepen
dently of and under a separate organi
zation from the Alliance, it is very
closely related to the Order and is re
ally its "business bureau." The Ex
change has now been in operation for
three months and its success has been
such as to firmly establish it in the
confidence of the Order throughout the
State. In the three months $.50,000O of
business has been done, and the volume
is constantly increasing.
The Exchange is a regularly char
tered corporation with an elaborate
machinery, permeating every county,
township and neighborhood in the
State. The plan of the Exchange was
first submitted to the 1,000 or more
Sub-Alliances in the State for ratifica
tion. Each Alliance ratifying the plan
was entitled to subscribe to not less
than one share for the first thirty-five
members, two shares for the first sixty
five, and so on, accorninig toa regular
Each Sub-Alliance elected a trustee
stockholder, and the sub-trustee stock
holders in each eounty selected from
their number a county trustee stock
holder. The county trustee stockhole'
ers in turn elected nine directors, one
from each Congressional district and
two at large. The directors elected
Col. J. C. Coit, of Chesterfield, presi
dent; J. W. Ferguson, of D)arlington,
secretary and treasurer, and the Hon.
M. L. Donaldson, of this city, man
The State Exchange has a paid in
capital of about $1:2,000. This sunm is
held to form a commercial bank.ing and
is not available for running expenses.
The current expenses, including the
salaries of its officers, are defrayed by
the brokerage and discounts allowed by
dealers and manufacturers on business
transacted through the Exchange.
The maximum amount of brokerage
which the manager is allowed to col
lect is fixed by a schedule prepared by
a committee of the directors appomnted
for the purpose, the idea being to secure
fr.om this oure simplyeanonah t ov a
be running expenses. If the business
hould be so large as to cause t he bro
:erage fund to exceed the expense ac
ount the surplus would be covered
ato the treasury and every stockholder
could get the benefit of it in the form
f a dividend. While the satries or
he officers of the Exchange : -e fixed
,y the directors, they are not guaran
eed, and are purely contingent on the
mount of brokerage collected.
The business of the Exchange is con
[ucted with extreme caution, every
afeguard being provided against irre
ularities of any kind. All orders from
ub-Alliances come through the coun
y agents and are accompained by the
ash. These orders are based on prices
!urrent issued weekly, and distributed
.11 over the State. The'prices quoted to
he buyer include the brokerage and
are wholesale quotations. The Alliance

s;thus, by the bulking oforders through
he Exchange, enabled to obtain goods

unds derived from brokerage of dis

Ise can draw on that fund exret't

yountersigned by the president. The
manager is required to make a report
:o the president monthly of all busi
aess transacted by him and of all com
missions and brokerage collected. The
county agents are required to make
similar reports to the president, so that
the two reports act as checks upon
The State Exchange is regarded as
being yet in its infancy. Manager
Donaldson is crowded with work night
and day. The business is growing
rapidly and the prospect is that the
record of $ 40,000 of business for the first
hree months will be far out stripped
when the fall season opens. As the
plans and methods of the State Ex
change become better understood
among the members of the Sub-Alli
ances the patronage grows with a
rapidity which indicates that the Ex
change may become a tremendous
business factor. T. E. 1
The Shocking Outcose of ain Annatuer

BURLINGTON, IoWA, April 1.-Bur

shocked over the predicament in which
a number of their leading young ladies
found themselves after the close of an
amateur entertainment at the Opera
House on Thursday night. The enter

and Mrs. Howe, travelling managers,
who came here five weeks ago and be

Mr. and Mirs. Howe furnished the
costumes, and the participants were all
prominent ladies of Christ Episcopal

ladies had donned their stage costumes
at home before going to the Opera
House. D)uring the evening a sherifi
from a neighboring city appeared with
an attachment on the entire piaraipher
nalia. When the curtain fell on the
last act the young ladies were horrified
when informed that they could not
take the costumes from the building.
A great hubbub ensued, but the sher

the young ladies were compelled to gc
home in neglige attire.
