Sun's Rays Through Comet
Make Tail; Says Mallery
That the famous tall of Halley's com
et is nothing more or less than the
suns rays; that the earth in reality
did pass through the tail, and that
these thories have been borne out by
the actions of the mysterious sky wan
derer, is advanced by Ellis Mallery. a
prominent geologist of Los Angeles. In
addition to being a trained geologist
Mr. Mallery is an astronomer. In dis
cussing the comet and its tall Mr. Mal
lery stated:
"The visible tail of the comet In Its
greater entirety is nothing more tlian
light refraction caused by the deflec
tion of the suns rays as they pass
through the comet's head.
"It is known the head of the comet is
composed of various gases which In
come more dense as the center of the
body is reached. The more attenuated
of these gases form an envelope around
the central nucleus which, then
reasons to believe, possess more or
less solid matter toward It* center.
"This gaseous envelope surrounds
the nucleus much ns ourt atmosphere
envelopes the earth, only that In the
Instance of the comet the envelope is
proportionately much thicker.
"That this envelope is highly trans
parent has been determined by die ob
• nervation of other heavenly bodies
which are plainly visible through it:
In fact our atmosphere, though seem
ingly thin and transparent to us, Is ex
ceedingly more dense than the major
portion of the cornel's head.
"This explanation bring* us to
more vital point—the tall questlo
The matter as Just pet forth descrll
inff the existent conditions of th
head, make a clearer Interpretation i
the tail possible. These gases sur
round the central body- In cone
layer, tint! this Bpheroldal structun
coupled with the transparent nature •
the pases, make it logical to ai
that hero is a factor, potent for Hgl
"The rays of the sun ac the;
upon the surface of this gaseous :
are absorbed and deflected the same i
a lens absorbs light rays and deflect
them to a common center, where the
cross and diverge to an ever lncreasin
degree until they disappear by th
process of lost effectiveness throug
It is therefore seen nlong this line
of reasoning that we have in the com
et's head a body of the. necessary
composition and of suffleinet siz'- to
gather and project rays of lisht to a
considerable distance through gpace.
The diameter of the head, which has
been estimated to be 106.0nn miles, it
spoken of as a lens, would certainly
be one of some magnitude, quite large
enough we can assume to project a
Shaft of light to the distance through
spare such as the twenty million to
thirty million miles which h:is been as
cribed to the comet's tail.
"In substantiation of this the nearer
the comet's head approaches the sun
the longer becomes it^ tall, which Is in
keeping with the known principle of
optics. As the source of Hsht Is ap
proached there is a proportionate in
crease in the number of light rays
Which fall upon the object, and there
fore b greater power of projection is
embodied in the lense.
■'Some contention to this Interpreta
tion of the matter might lie raised on
the ground that such deflected rays
would be invisible because of tho ab
of matter in space to reflect them.
l!:iscil nn the latter belief much weight
has been given to the theory that the
tail must necessarily be composed of
particles of matter as a constituent part
of the parent body, and that these min
ute particles accompany the. head
through the heavens. The tall Is ad
mitted to be exceedingly rarifled; so
exceedingly so that it is difficult to
Imagine such matter could follow a
traveler which has the propensities of
thjs speed merchant of the skies.
"It seems on the other hand reason
able to presume that the matter which
permeates space even though It be
infinitesimal, is still sufficiriU to re
flect the concentrated rays passing
throufrh the comet's head. Such <in
explanation as outlined would furnish
a simple solution of some of the mys-
Drop in Cantaloupe Quotations.

teries now acknowledged to be much in
doubt about. For Instance, such as the
splitting of the tails of most comets,
a common phenomenon as observed by
us, could be readily accounted for by
the separation of the sun's rays by the
solid part or nucleus which would act
the same as If an opaque substance
were inserted in the central portion ol
a lens.
BXriiAINS TAIL'S direction t
"Even a more perplexing phenomenon
would be explained In the now unsatis
factory accounting: for the tall always
pointing away from the sun. Under
the present accepted theory the end
of the tail must travel farther and fas
ter than the. head and it do.s not seem
to be consistent with known facts gov
erning the moHon of bodies through
space to believe the sun on the on"
hand exerts a repulsive force which
■ drives the finer particles away rrom
the head, and on the other hand would
allow them to move latterly at the same
rate or at a greater rate than the head.
"The annarent curvature of the tall
! might also be attributed to light re
fraction. Objects as observed through
our atmosphere and which cast their
I light through it obliquely have their
rays deflected and the nearer the hori
zon the greater the distortion. Thus
the curved appearance of the comet's
tail as it lies low in the sky could be
"A certain amount of repulsive force
. verted hy the Run as the comet rushes
j around its orbit may drive the gases ;
i away from the head in streamer fash
ion, but it is inferred these hug com
paratively closa to the head and that
the cyanogen and other gases as
i shown by the spectrum to be present in
the tail do not extend to its outer con
fines, or anywhere near so. Therefore
at the point of the earth's transit
through the tail it could be truly said
this object of which we have been so
object of which we have been bo
much In dread is really nothing but
"The reason we did not see the tail
of the comet at the appointed time
when we were at the appointed time
•n we were supposed to pass through
may be explained by the fact of our
lino of vision having been brought par
allel with the rays of light, and when
we have passed to a position again
where our vision crosses them, the
tail will appear as brilliant as before.
iwith tho rays of light, and when
have passed to a position again
re our vision crosses them, the
will appear as brilliant as before.
"In carrying out the foregoing, to
more exactly represent the matter, the
tail Instead of being a solid shaft of
light would be a hollow shaft or cone
of light with a dark central portion,
the darker area being caused by the
denseness of the central portion of the
comet's head cutting out some of the
light rays.
"The reported appearance of the tail
still In the eastern sky when it was due
In the west may have been caused by
deflection of the rays entering our at
mosphere or by the pressure on them
exerted by the reflected light of
the earth. But aside from this men
tion which may be considered compar
atively logical In the greater immn- ,
i Blty of the tall we are allowed to be- j
lieve we passed through the tail on
schedule time and that we will find
this unjustly censured tall to be very
regular in its behavior as It gradually
disappears from our view on its Jour
ney toward Its outward destination In
"By accepting the version outline..
this brilliant object which ha 3 inhabited
our morning eky for several weeks
past and which will continue to Inhabit
and which will continue to Inhabit
our evening sky for some weeks more
and which has caused all sorts of emo
tions from those of mere curiosity and
wonderment to deepest awe and con
sternation among the human boinar^
of the earth, would seem to be nothing
more harmful than any welcome ray
of sunlight which might penetrate the
gloom of a sick room in soma tenement
house or find its way into the dark
recess of a dungeon to gladden the
heart of some unfortunate there who
has heard nothing of our co-net. In
his Ignorance he has not suffered the
fear which has afflicted so many of his
more fortunate fellow creatures who
Bre fortunate to roam creatures have
heir freedom to roam tho earth have
become terror stricken at the same
cause which bears Joy to their less
fortunate brother In the dungeon."

at 623 South Broadway.
Many Floral Pieces
Recognizing the growing importance
of South Broadway as a business and
Shopping district, the Walk Over Shoo
company, operating through tha
Hughee Shoe company, of which J. F.
Hughes Is president, has opened Its
third Los Angeles store at 623 South
Broadway, to be known as the Walk
Over Boot Shop.
The opening yesterday found tha
haridsoma new store crowded with.
Walk Over friends and patrons. Sou
venirs were distributed all day, and an
orchestra furnished music In the after
noon and evening-. Great bouquets ot
floweri were found In every part ot
the store.
The new shop is especially handsomo
In Its interior decoration, although the
windows. are of the latest and most
artistic construction. The style of the
New York and Paris Walk Over stores
is followed closely. The furnishings
are of Mission design, In a light green..
Tin ceilings are beamed. A balcony
encircles the entire room. Through the
full length of the store In the center
are high backed seats of impressiva
structure. The Walk Over idea Is evi
dent on every hand. Two of the littlo
Walk Over men are seen at the front
on pedestals, footing the arch at each
side. The rugs are of special Walk
Over weave. In the windows the Walk
Over monogram design Is found again
in .stained glass panels.
