Ilrlgltl .Spot 'cm on .Snliirn'm Itliigs The Winter I'onstelliit Ion Limit mill the Planets. Melllsb's comet, of whose dleovery we spoke last mouth, has already passed Its nearest appio.ich to the earth, and It now receding rapidly both from us and from the sun, so that It will not long re main visible, writes Henry Norrls Ilus sell, in the Scientific American. At Its best It was only a diffuse, hazy spot of light, but wa fairly hi-lulu for a teles copic (omet, and easily seen in n small telecope. There ha been considerable popular discussion lately about certain bright spots that have been seen on Saturn's rings. The rings ate at present so situ ated that we see their dalk side: that Is, the one on which the sun does not shine. They ire consequently Invisible, except for the thin edge, which can lie seen In largo telesropiH as a faint and exceed ingly delicate line of light, extending out on each side of the planet On this line tlieie appear brighter "knots" or "con- densatlotis," two on each side of tho planel, symmetrical with respect to It. as was announced a few weeks ag from the l,lck f ibservntory. This iibcnomenon Is, boweer. not new to science, and In fact an explanation of it was given by Prof, pond of Harvard rather more than fifty years ago. sub stantially nv f ilk ws; The rings of Saturn are thin plane sheets, most prnhably less than ho miles In thhkness. though 1WW tulles in diameter. They do nol. however, form an unbroken sluet, but arc composed of thi"e db lsions an outer one. about 10.n-i0 'lilies wide, separated front the second by a dark space of i.ftn) miles; a second, about 11,10o miles in width, brighter than the first; nnd ''lis Miacb-s gradually Into til" third, which Is faint and pattly transparent doubtless because the par ticles which compose It are so fur apart that we can see through between them We are looking at them at uresent almost, though not quite, edgewise; our distance from tho plane of the rings be ing only about l-0 of the distance of tho planet. In conseqit' nee. as we look at I he part of the rings which is in-nrly in front of the planet, we see onlv the Illuminated ciitei nlge of the out' r ring. The outct edge of the second ring Is also lllmlnat- ed hy th sun, but we do not see It. for It Is concealed behind the dark inner edge of the outer ring, which appears to overlap It. since the actual gap between them Is so narrow. Put when we consi der a seri.-s of points apparently farther from the planet, it Is easy to -ee that we will be looking more and more obliquely across the narrow gap between the rings, so that It will look wider, until Mnnllv we can see the lirisht ecli'.e of the .second ring through It. in the same way we see the Inner edge of th" oilier ring, behind the planet, through the same gap, but only when we look across It very obli quely. The combination of these two (which are too close together to be son f-epnri ly) accounts for nn of llic brighter "knots" on the faint line of the rings, its distance from the planet's center should evidently re equal to the apparent diameter of the division be tween the rings, and there will be ano ther similar bright spot on the opposite side of the planet, at tile time distance. The Inner edge of the second ring ac counts for the other pair of bright "knots'- in n .similar fashion To see them satisfactorily requires a large telescope and good atmospheric conditions, so that they are all beyond the range of most amateur observers, Till: 11KAV12NS.

He was not In favor of planting corn In a young oren.m for the reason that its root.i extend much further thaif is supposed and In consequence would tend to rob the tree of tne nourishment which they need. In short, good husbandry will not take from i.'io soil one part of the fertility tho tree needs in later years but rather will add to p. At this Juncture Prof 1-2. .,1.
