Its position is fifty-three de grees from the southern horizon. Whether it can lie plainly observed without glasses or not, of course, de pends upon tlie sky. A gray or hazy sky considerably dims its appearance, hut in the clear sky i will shine with great splendor. Venus lias been responsible tor many srange phenomenon. At Duran go, Colo., on July 2t[ last, the citi zens were startled by what seemed to be a body of fire Its large as tiie moon, oblong in shape and pointed at the top, which appeared soon after twilight. As darkness fell it grew brighter and bright*!, and many thought the world was coining to an end. Some of tlie r nchers in the vicinity of Durango thought it was a comet or wandering planet approach ing the earth and gathered their fami lies about them to wait for the com ing crash. Three times, it was al Men's Wear Section Of The Condon Ô Co. Store « g 30 ; In selling men's wear we have adopted a policy, which, as yet, has not been followed by any other store. This policy s greatest factor is the actual selling of high class, high priced men's wearing apparel at the same prices. Dollar for Dollar that you are required to pay in other stores for the lesser value selling clothing is more than claiming one thing and secretly knowing that you are doing something else. It requires the continued production of good values such as is maintained every day of the year by the Condon & Co. Store. Winter is here; it is the time of need.

On the same day in St. Louis tlie people watched what they thought was a speeding comet, which appeared at 2:30 in tlie afternoon and remained visible until sundown. As tronomers explained that tlie "comet" was Venus, and that fleecy clouds made the star appear to be moving rapidly. Similar phenomenon may be expect ed during the next few days, say Washington astronomers, at places where the atmospheric conditions are especially favorable.

Washington, Oct. 20.—Somebody in the post office department has ac quired a case of ingrowing morality, and newspapers and magazines had better "look a leetle out" about about what they publish in the future.

Recently two Atlanta newspa pers were investigated on charges sim ilar to those which caused the indict ment of the Virginia publishers, and newspapers in several cities all over the country are said to be threatened with the department's displeasures.

In Atlanta, Ga., on the other hand, a soul can be recovered for $75, which is the lowest quotation now prevail ing in any of the big cities of the country.
