A Visit to tbe Dome on tbe Observa
George H. Smalley, tbe mining
writer of Phoenix, contributes tbe fol
lowing to tbo columns of tbe Republi
can: Tbe small hills bordering Flagstaff
on the west and resting tranquilly iu
the shadow of San Francisco mountain
contain a prospector with indefatigable
energy. He is the sole possessor of
the place If other prospectors, have
heard of him they have never cared f
follow in his footsteps. His work aud
life is different from theirs. During
the daytime ho sleep, and it is not
until tho rotation tho earth has
can led Flagstaff Into IU deep slindow
that he continues work upon his pros
pects. He never falls to iiud colors in
bis most desultory effort. The physi
cal universe is bis tield, aud this small
speck on our continent is the pedestal
which lifts him high enough above the
timbers to allow an undisturbed vis
iu. The stars hidden beyond the
scope of the unaided eye are the pros
pects he works upon. The prospector
I refer to is Dr. T. J. J. See of Lowell
I spent a pleasant hour at tbe obser
vatory- the otber evening, and was
showu the doctor's method of pros
pecting in the heavens. His strikes
are more frequent than are those of
ROOflS lit Connexion,

the fellows who have to work with the
pick and hammer. Formations cut no
figuro with hi in. Saturn and its
satellites wero brought down out of
the skies and revealed n manner
almost startling to tho layman who
has almost made himself believe that
Jerome contained tbe only wonder.
The great golden band about the
planet is as distinct as the planet Itself.
Thu clear atmosphure of Arizona and
the wonderful lens of the telescope
bring out plainly the "crape jiiig"
Circling about in .the center of this
band, which is oue of the later day
discoveries of tho physical prospectors.
The jjutollities stand about like inter
ested spectators at a race course., It
is easy to imagine thu great band
moving around the planet at a tre
mendous speed as it it were trying to
generate a wave of prosperity among
the folks ou tbo planet within its
folds. You never tire looking at it,
aud the longer you look the closer it
appears to you. When )ou leave It
and tramp down tho hill to your bed
there conies a feeling of smallness
that is sure death to any importance
you may have previously attached to
your own being. The emotions of
life upon this immediate sphere are
drowned in the awful realization that
our old earth is only a side issue to tbe
phenomenal attractions the heaieus
The observatory is' tho personal
property of Percival Lowell, the great
astronomer who has given so much to
science during his busy life. Mr.
Lowell became convinced (hut clear
air was imperative in astronomical
researches aud be camo to Arizona
with bis telescope, where he has fully
realized the good judgment of bis for
mer convictions. Here he was en
abled to pursue bis study of Mars with
results which have placed him before
the world as tbe most advanced work
er and discoverer upon ibis interesting
planet. Mr. Lowell was here a year
ago pursuing the study of Mars and
has since published a book In relation
to the planet. He was able here to
aee the canals and make other detail
observations which are very valuable
to science. Mr. Lowell says Ihut u
widtii of space on Mar .if thirty miles
appears Hko a mere dotf which pre
cludes tho possibility of revealing tho
life on the planet.
The telescope o( this observatory is
fifth iu power, ".ujpug the great toh
worluW Although it
ra ii k
DinaUer iu size the others nave
never been able to see with greater
success. Tbe diameter of lens is
twenty-four incites. The focal length
of tbe telescope is thirty-one feet. It
stands on a substantial pedestlal of
iron and is enclosed in a well built
dome forty-two feet In dlamoter The
cauvass portion of the dome is operated
by hand with ease as the work in
progress requires. Tbe telescope
when the doctor is at work is kept at
a uniform movement with the stars by
what is termed a driving clock which
controlled by electricity.
Dr. See's special work now is double
stars in tbe southern hemisphere.
Sir John Hcrschel made the first
study of double stars sixty years ago
and Dr. See. is the first to resume .this
work. He has discovered 300 double
stars during the past year, all of which
have never before been known to
astronomers. This record has never
been equalled in the same period of
time. With the aid of an assistant,
Mr. W. A. Cogshall, who guides' tbe
telescope, the doctor is enabled to ex
amine as many as 500 stars in a single
Thl observatory is farther south
than any in the country, W from this
point with Its great elevation tho
work has to be done very near the
horizon. To get oeiter results tue
observatory was moved to the City of
Mexico, but tne resuus were not sac
Isfaetorv. From hero Mr. Lowell may
tnkii his observatory to 'Peru, but
when the chanze will be made is not
decided upon. The work at Flagstaff
has been whol v satisfactory, but Mr.
Lowell exoects to be able to work to
better advantage in the southern hem
ispuero from a point further south.
"Last summer ono of our grand
children was sick with a severe bowel
trouble;" says Mrs. E. G; Gregory, of
Frcderickstown, Mo. "Our doctor's

Diarrhoea Remedy, which gavo very
speedy relief." For sale by D. J.
