THE COMET NOT VISIBLE
The Clouds Spoiled the Celes tial Fireworks Show. CROWDS OF PEOPLE ON THE WATCH. I Astronomer« Were Unable to Take Ob ■ servatIons—Millions or Curious Folks I Disappointed Reeanse of the Clouds. I A Storm From Ocean to Ocean. I The comet did not strike the earth last I night. At least there was no noticeable I disturbance in terrestrial affairs; no per I ceptible condensation of the atmosphere I beyond what is usual on a cold, muggy I November night, and no quakes or quiv I ers to be felt. The old globe continued I to roll calmly on and placidly on in her I orbit at the rate of a good many I sands of feet per second, and the saucy I little long haired visitor which has créa I ted such perturbation in the minds of I credulous people kept its distance out in I starry space. I There may have been plenty of falling I stars last night, but if so they were un I able to penetrate the heavy snow-laden I canopy of clouds which overhung the I earth, and so nobody saw them. I Astronomers Knew Nothing. I The astronomers laughed In the full I ness of their wisdom when people fired I ail manner of inquisitive questions at I them, and declared that they knew I nothing about the wherebouts of the I dread comet, or even w hether it was I bound for the earth or away from it. I Most of them had expected to see a I brilliant meteoric display, aud were as I much disappointed over the cloud-riddeu I sky as anybody. fl From the Pacific to the Atlantic ■ oceans a mist of clouds obscured the ■ heavens. In San Francisco it rained, in fl Philadelphia it rained. The only chance fl to see the display was on top of'Pike's fl Peak or Mount Washington, or some fl place above the clouds. fl Wilmingtonians were disappointed in I not getting a view of the comet and the fl celestial fireworks that were promised I for tonight. Hundreds of people prom I enaded the streets, hoping that the I clouds would scatter, but they per ■ «latently hung over the city like a pall, I and up to 12 o'clock tonight no trace of I the promised phenomenon had been di s I covered. In some sections of the city I the colored people and superstitious I white persons were very much alarmed ■ over the predicted shower of stars. B Professor M. B. Snyder, ot the Central I High School, Philadelphia, said last I night owing to the heavy clouds any I meteoric display which might be taking I place would be quite obscured. "It is I possible," he said, "that the display of I last Wednesday night may have been I the one expected tonight. On the other ■ hand, it may have been only a portion of ■ the stream, which is gradually iucreas I ing as the work of disintegration goes I on. The earth passes through the orbit I once a year. Th I display is so seldom seen is because the I meteoric stream at present only occupies I an arc. But the work of disintegration I is going on so rapidly that the arc is I growing larger, and as time advances ■ the earth will come in contact with the ■ stream with greater frequence." H We May Have Collision Yet. I Nohtheiki.d, Minn., Nov. 28.— I Although clouds have seriously hindered I observations at tioodsell observatory, I yet what Professor Hay ne and Dr. Wil I son have]seen of the comet yesterday has I convinced them that it is not Biela's. I Dr. Wilson has watched the comet ever I since its recent discovery, and from its I appearance and the position of its orbit I thinks it is a new comet, or one whose I orbit has changed. ■ He thinks there will be a collision he I t ween the earth and the comet, yet the I earth may pass through the tu.il of the I comet, which will produce metoric I showers. a thou e reason the meteoric Crazed lly Comet Stories. Philadelphia, Nov. 28. — While violently insane last evening J. P. John son, aged 42 years, escaped from his residence, 1736 North Fifteenth street. His mind is supposed to have become de ranged over the report that the comet was to strike tho earth and his life would be endangered. St. John'« Thirty-Fourth Anniversary. The thirty-fourth anniversary of the consecration of St. John's Episcopal church, was celebrated yesterday, the morning the Rev. T. Gardner Lit tel I D. D., rector, preached on "Advent and the Judgment." He referred to the point of doing as much good as possible, and said the judgment which followed would be the happy consummation to those who had done their duty. John S. Litteil, the rector's son who is a theolog ical student, made an address at the nfternoon service. Dr. Litteil spoke of the changes in the neighborhood. Purchased My a Chester Firm. The steamer Owego. which was built by John Mulroouey, proprietor of the Herbert House in South Wilmington and used as a pleasure yacht on the Delaware river, has been sold by Euoch Moore to the Chester Lumber company. Mr. Moore purchased the vessel of Mr. Mul roouey some time ago and the sale to the Chester company was made during the first part of the month for tho sum of |850. lü Child of the Sewer. Thomas O'Donnel found a 3 months-old whit« babe in the open sewer at Fourth and Jackson streets early this morning. It was in a cigar box and wrapped in a napkin.

Quite a large number of people assem bled at the Eleventh Street Skating Kink Saturday evening to enjoy the skat ing intermingled with the strains of music from iiyatt's Military band. George L. Sinister, the genial and pop ular mausger, has had the place repaiutod and beautiful decorations adorn the interior, giving the place a pleasant and inviting appearance. During the coming Winter eveuings the management will announce special attractions aud the lovers of the roller will find this place comfortably heated and lively with amus ing features. is is \ Antl-OIoo Tactics. The executive committee of the Dairy men's National Protective association at their regular meeting in Philadelphia a few days ago, decided to forward a letter to every congressman in the United States, urging upon them the im portance of passing the Hatch bill, which has already passed committee favorably and is now on the calendar of the house. The bill provides that all oleomargarine transported into any state or territory and remaining therein for use, consumption, sale or storage, shall upon arrival be subject to the laws of such state, as though such oleomargarine had been produced in such state, and shall not be exempt therefrom by reason of being introduced in original packages or otherwise. The members lay great store by the passage of this act, as it will practically crush out oleo in many states whose laws prohibit not only its sale, but its manufacture. Annie Flxley Tonight. The attraction for tonight at the Grand Opera House is Annie Pixley in her new play "Miss Blythe of Duluth." It deals with scheming, trickery, love and despair. Miss Pixley's portrayal of the ingenuous Miss Blythe, who unfolds the complica tions of the play is said to be strongly individualized. The scenes of the play are laid in a summer resort near New York city which, with the characters p.nd situations of the play, afford happy surroundings to the serious parts of the story. Miss Pixley will introduce dur ing her engagement, several new songs, written for her by well-known composers and are said to be of a kind that will surely make them popular. "Lady Blarney." ] Rollicking, impulsive. fun-loving "Lady Blarney," Annie Ward Tiffany's latest creation, will be seen at the Grand Opera House tomorrow niglit and all who enjoy a portrayal of the best side of the Irish character should not fail to see her in this part. The play from which the character t'tleis derived, is from the pen of Alfred Kennedy, and is well con structed. The story is interesting from beginning to end and iu "Lady Blarney," Miss Tiffany has a part that is said to surpass any that she has played of late years. The supporting company is highly spoken of. Slacked Lime in the Sickroom. Sore throats are very prevalent in the autumn, and are especially prevalent such days as we are having now.

Nkw Yomk, Nov. 28.—Evening dress is taking up much attention just now, and, although they are very rich in ma terial, and very simple ami elegant in style and shape, 1 confess I have one misgiving when 1 look at them. 1 can't think how they are kept up. Because they are so low, oh yes, so very low ! Y on see it isn't considered bad taste to ex pose a portiou of the charms that Nature has bestowed, if you know where to draw the line. Decollete gowns aro not just now only the privilege of soubrettes, and music hall artistes. The line should be drawn straight across the bust, below the level of the shoulders. Then the large, full, spread ing puffed sleeves curve over the should ers, at least they do in the charming col ored designs aud on the 'gown stands, Imve not as yet seen any of these gowns on real flesh and blood figures, I cannot say how they really look and are kept up. Brocades seem the materials chosen for gowns for evening wear, and the low tight bodices are almost covered with jewelled trimming. A folded belt of silk is worn with these bodices, and the skirts sie made ou the principle of re vived 'housemaid." This is gathered all roi-nd and very full at the back. The oklrt of the immédiat» future, it is said, will have a steel rim all around the hem. end of the wedge, the beginning of the No fashion but as 1 Tills will perhaps prove the thin old-fashioned crinoline, surely was ever so ugly and so unbecom ing. \ Vv ' t \w - if A ' i m P L i ft if.
