the crcsceut moon was set as a gem. On

A corrcvpeudcut el the Londen JVein
writing from Goueva, uaya : Switzerland
has net been behind ether countries iu the
matter of gorgeous sunsets. Fer several
evenings we have bceti treatcd te specta
cles that are rare evun in this country, and
are certainly most unusual at this time of
the year. One iu particular was very strik
ing The sun set is n perfectly cloudless
sky, ami immediately afterward thu west
ern heavens were ullame with a goldeu
light that burnished the wiudewu te duz

This again waa succeeded by a
glowing eiimseu maiked by paL,

almost unprecedented in thin part of the
world, was witnubnrd en the lake a few
oveniugs age The steamer Jura was pre
feeding en her veyage up the lake, nud
when oil Nyeu the whole of her rigging
aud masts were suddenly enveloped iu
"St. Elme's Fire," which jjewed with u
pale, lambent ilame. The elUct was net
only singularly beautiful, but wierd and
startling. The weather ptephuts here bay

It was preoeded by a very hoary fall of

rreni Adolaide obsenatory, Seu'U
Australia, coiiieh tlie following iu tlie
oiBeial repert for October : " Un evety
dear evening duriug this mouth nud the
labt fertuight in September a peculiar
phouemenon has been appaicut iu the
western bky. Shortly after butuet a red
glow will make its appearance, at tin alti
tude of about CO dcgices, being very faiut
at 11 rat, but as the brightness of thu sky
near the horizon dies away with the to te
ceding situ the red glow will expaud dewu
winds, becoming nt the same time mero
brilliant, until nt last the whole westuru
sky will be lit up with a beautiful light,
varying in oelor from n delicate pink te a

prcsents n most brilliant appearatice.
The uptier part will thou gradually fadn

degrcca or 8 degrees nbove the horizon, nt

Afterwnrds a soceud.uy glow will beiuv

of nbeut CO degrees, nud gtadually spread
downwards uutil the sky 1b ngaiu lit up.
In the secondary phouemenon the colors
nre generally mero delicate. The whele
thiug will fade nway about 8 p. nt.
" This phenomenon has been noticed nil

tiuent, from I'ert Augusta (lat. '! deg, 8.)
te .Melbourne ; nnd iu India the mm has

have been started te accettut fur the phe
Mr. J. J. Winnut, writing te the San
Francisce Examine? under date of Dee,
IU, says : " During the ireuth of Swptom Swptem
ber I was ou my way te Honolulu from
Sau Franolseo, nud I lirst noticed the
phonemonon about the middle of the
month, and when nbeut n thousand miles
from the islands. The sight nt son was
truly wonderful nud beautiful, the sky be bo be
ceming crimson, and even the sea, wheu
ealm, assuming a piuk tint, ns though
rollected from seme burning mountain,
nnd tha light would lemalu long nfter
sunset. Ou nrriving at the islauds we
found that the people there had noticed it
and commented oxteuslvely ou it. Te
them the sky proseuted au appoiirauce
similar te the time of the great volcanic
Inannrtiole published teccutlv lu the
New Yerk Vii, the wrlter lontied te the
notion thnt " cosrelo dust" is really the
cauee of the hull kuucqii.
" That Rtieh dust exlstn nnd has been
found is well known, but hew much or
little its presence near the earth is uotleed
is a question net easily determined. The
discoveries of Professer Nordenskjold In
the North nre interesting. Fer many
yearn he has been a close ebserver of dust
of nil kinds that have fallen upon the
catth iu ralu or snow, and It was his troed
fortune, dining his expedition in the Vega
te prove beyond n doubt the prosence of
cosmic dust. Fer many ynars we have
been assured by nstronemors that the
earth was being bombarded, an it were
continually, by innumerable meteors, The
moment they enter our domain, we ob
serve the npeotaela of their Ignition, Iu a
moment they are reduced te ashes, nud the
line, Impalpable dust diepa slowly, nn
invisible shower, upon the earth. When
such showers nre iulensHlsd, it in tiet Im
possible thnt seme outward nnd visible
phenomena may be the result."
A correspondent of the Louden lmt
argues thus iu support of the theery that
electricity has had much te de with the
phenomenon : " Wheu we take into een.
nideratieu the movements of the atmos
phere nnd the rotntlen of the earth, I soe
no reason te doubt that nu Immense oleud
of highly electrilled matter, projectcd into
the atmosphere, iu Java, could spread
itself in the higher regions of the atmos
phere ever au aiea equal te that of
" That this is net fanciful Is proved by
the behavior of smeke. I have often
watched when at sea ou n still cnlm day
the black smeke of seme passing steamer
rise te Heme determined height and then
gradually spread Itself at nn equal and
constant distance from the son Ilke a great
lilt pall. I have also scen en land the
urneku from some manufacturing shaft
blown geutly by the wiud fellow the
curves of the laud, remaining always at
the same distance from the ground, but
gradually spreading outwards iu every
detection. I have also bcuu two lines of
smeke refuse te coalesco, but repelling
each ether exactly as they ought If they
were similarly electrified, That smeke is,
tlioreferc, negatively electrified I firmly
believe, though I have never tested it.
" New that this wonderful atmospheric
disturbance was accompanied by oxtiaor extiaor oxtiaer
ditury electrical disturbance was shown,
net only by Captain Watsen's observa
tions near the spot, but by I'ref. Smith's
records nt Madras, nud botice it requires
no great stretch of the imagination te
conceive- olectrieity playing n great part in
the recent gorgeous display of ntraospherie
Mew te be Been lu the Bky.
The comet of 1913, says the New Yerk
Sun, Ih new visible te sharp sighted per
sons without the aid of telescopes. It will
grew brighter for a mouth te come, nud
will probably nttraet gonerai nttoutleu in
Jauuary lint the chief interest oxeited
by this visitor from spaoe will be due, net
te its brilliant appearance, for unless
komethiug oxtraenliuary happens te it it
will at its host be a comparatively incon
spicuous object, but te the faet that it ban
ceme back ns astronomers many years age
said it would de. Moreover, it has re
turned very nearly nt the predicted time,
although its jenrnuy out toward the stars
anil back near the suu has occupied ever
seventy jearu. It must be admitted that
the astronomers kuew a great deal nbeut
things buyetul the earth, when
they are able, by watching the
motion of a oemut through a
tery small portion of its orbit, te tell hew
far it n ill go from the sun, although the
distance is hundreds of millions of miles,
nud iu hew many years it will return,
although the time is nearly three quarters
et a century. On the ether baud, while
men of science have been able te predict
the watideting cottrse of n comet which
turned its tail aud tied from the sun nbeut
the time when Napolceu fled from Russia,
nud lias only just new reappeared, wiugiuc
its way hick, thesame learned studeuts of
tiiilti e have failed tosatisl.icterlly account

Jeans Ljuis Funs, the discoverer of this
comet, aud the man whose uame it bears,
died mero than fifty years age. He was
less fortunate than bome ethor astrono astreno astrone
