If the comet, oow io t ur solar lystem atretcbed its orbit to tbe regiooB of tbe fixed stars, we coald ott expect its re* turntocur part of tha nniverae in leee tbao 20,000,000 yearB from now. Bat Hallej/s comet was bere in 1835, and tt will be here egaio aboot tbe ytar 1985 It waa oot till early io tbe elgbtsenth ctotory that Blr Edmund Halley as Bored the world that tbe oomet of 1682 waa no vagran', bnt t member in good acd regular staodlog of tbe aolar system. He tben predicted that itwtuld reluro io 1750, aod nturo lt did; for be bad figured ont, like eacb of tbe plaoeta, lt IravelB ao elllpse aod has its fixed period of revolotloo. It la troe that tbo ellipae Ib exoeediogly flattened, so tbat itreacbes oot throogb space like a long wedge, wbile Ihe eiltpse travaled by the planets makea cloae approach t> circles. But ellipae it is DevertbelesBjheoce theconitt most draw near the sod aod retlre Bgaio. The aolar ByBtem is ? klod of ialaod In tbe vast aea of apace. Ihe very near? est ofthe fixed stars, themselves distant buns, is 260,000 tlmeB as far from the eaith as our owo itn is. Out ioto that yawning gull Hallev's oomtt veotoree, 5,000,000 railea farther tbao Neptooe, oor moat distant planrt. But, ss if ter rified by the lolitude, back it sorely comes, tiu j to tbe ellipae which it ia appointed tn follow. Dooatt'e greai oomet of 1858, with a period of 2,000 yeara, dsras to go immeosely farfier; aod other comets leave DooBti'a away in the rear. Aod ytt, if they re urn, they beloog to oor sclsr family. While aome comita have periods aa low as 8J yearB, Halley'b, mra.urlng (ft t me iu sections of 75 years each, ImpreeBes ua profooadly, as well ii may. Yet two of the planetB rtquire a longer time to complete their orblts, Urauus takicg 84 jears aod Neptooe 164 to go aroood tbe a_o onoe. Were the patha of tbeae two worlds flattened like tbe ellipae of Halley, they, too, would come and go aa does the comet. Wbea we oonslder all theae p-salblll ties we canoot bot be both glad aod thaokfal that thlngs are maoltestly ar* ranged with a view to safety and contin usnce and ls woold be of all thlngs the moat unreasonable lo forget to admlre lo oar disposition to yield to craven fear.
