in special
house here last Friday night
President T R Barnard and Sec
retary Henry Carson present together
wIth a representative crowd of other
+ citizens There were not as many pres
ent as should have been and It Is
hard to discover the reason Several
prominent citizens and business men
who were absent said next day wlien
Inlcrrograted that they knew noth
lug of the meeting although It was
announced In both the town papers
and the court house bell wets loudly
sounded Others absent seemed to 1
taho little Interest In the matter and
wantedto know Jwhat the meeting

sad commentary upon the business
enterprise of our citizens who get
their living here and who should Ub
Interested In every movement large
or small in the Interest of the place
I which of course Includes the welfare
of all its citizens There Is evident
ly too much of lettheotherfellowv
I seetoIt There are cltlnpns and
business men hero who of course
I would like to prosper but they seem
inclined to want some other fellow
I to do the boosting This is not the
4 proper spirit and auch a condition
1is 1 deplorable Let us hope that these
citizens will soon learn to stb this
matterin a better light
Those vEo farm present ntthe
meeting seemed interested and alive
io the moment of the occasion The i
committee appointed to Investigate and I
llnd out a location for the proposed
hickory mill of Kellar Bros report
ed that they had found a location
near the depot here which could be
purchased for X200 The railroad
company proposes to furnish free the I
steel for a switch if the mill com
pany will do thie balance The mill
company is said to employ from ten
to twenty workmen regularly Col C

for tho purpose of getting acquaInt
ed This delegation will number
about 150 people and ttfero will be

+ In time for dinner The tact that
Hartford at present has no hotel In
operation makes tho matter of fur
nlbhing them dinner more than usu I
ally important By totter and also
by telephone the leaders of the Mad
Isonvlllo movement have said that
they do not wish Hertford people to

this coming crowd in the most hospit I
able manner We should not show
up short in any respect i
After some discussion it was deem i

Fading Away I
Henry NorrIs Russell an eminent
scientist contributed to a recent d is
sue of the Scientific American an t
InterCBtiES article in regard to the
return of Halleys comet and the po
sition where it is seen to the best ad
vantage He says that on the 18th
which is today it will pass directly
between us and the sun later ap
pearing even to greater advantage in
the evening sky
On the evening of the 18th or morn
ing of the 19th according to the ob
servers longitude the comet passes
between us and the sun and the earth
Mill be enveloped In its tall If the
latter Is long enough over 15000
If this evening is clear it will bo
of great Interest and Iniiiortanoci to I
look for illumination of the sky 1 In
the early evening just after sunset
the con ts tall will be in the east
but a few hours later It will have pass
ed over toward the West If as is
sometimes supposed the tall Is a
hollow cone of light there will be two
times at which the sky In general is
comparatively brightly illuminated
separated by en Interval while wo
are in the darker center of the tall
Meanwhile observers on the opposite
side of our planet will have tWe rait
privilege of seeing the sun through thb
comets head Only the extreme west
ern portion of the United States
is Included in Oils favored rtglon
but as the comet enters upon the suiH
dbk at 623 p m by Pacific stunt
ard time null remains on it till 722
tho transit will be visible all along
the coast The comet passes almost
squarely across the center of the nun
from west to east
Paradoxical as it may seem it I is
probable that the ordinary observer
tar with a small telescope and dark
glasses will not be able to detect
event the slightest trace of he com
ets passage With powerful in
struments the nucleus if solid might
be seen as a dark speck against the
sun If it is over 50 miles la diame
ter but it is improbable that it is 1
anything like so large for the whole
amount of light reflected from tho
comet when remote from the sun Is
no more than a single mass 30 miles
across would send us
Transits of comets across the sun
are very rare Tlo most remarkable
previous Instance is that of the great
comet of 1882 which though so bright
that It could be seen close to thb sun
In broad daylight with the naked eye
vanished completely when In front of
the HillS disk showing that It was
practically transparent
On the evening of the Il1th > we may
perhaps already see the comets tall In
the evening sky though its head will
IIet while the twilight is still very
strong On the 20th however It will
be visible till about 9 p m on the
22nd till about 9 p m on the 23rd
till 1020 and on the 25th and after
ward until after 11 p m
On the 21st the comets head will
be disco to the stur Gemlnorum on
the 23rd about 10 degrees above Pro
cyon and on the 25th near Hydrae

nite announcement of the schedule or
of entertainment has yet been an
However everything bearing on the
trip Is moving rapidly in firstclass
order and the success of the ven
ture Is now assured The kindly
spirit In which Hartford people have
taken the proposal of the visit has
keyed the committpemen up to harder
