Strange Phenomena Reported on Orb by Astronomer. CHICAGO, April 5.—Strange erup tions have appeared on the sun, It was announced today by Professor Edwin B. Frost, director of the Yerkes Observatory, at Williams Bay, Win. “The eruptions shoot from the surface of the sun like skyrockets," said Professor Frost. “They are easily visible at the edge of the disc One of them shot out to a length ol 150,000 miles, as near as we could estimate. It then detached Itsell from the main body and sped through space, a mass of luminous gas not dissimilar to a comet. Before it dis appeared it had reached a distance from the sun of about 250,000 miles. The eruptions are probably caused by the release of pressure on some par I alar spot of the sun” Professor Frost said the disturban ces probably accounted for brilliant auroral displays which had been seen recently.

Roosevelt Trims His Plans in Rome-ls Displeased --Rides With the King ✓ ROME, April 5.—Mr. Roosevelt was not In his happiest mood today. His wish that the Vatican audience incident be regarded as personal to him has not been respected and he is intensely annoyed. About the first thing the former president did today was to call off a reception to members of the Ameri can colony, which had been set for tomorrow night. This action can be traced directly to the issuance yesterday of a state ment by Rev. B. M. Trfpple, pastor of the American Methodist church, in which the opportunity was taken for an attack on the Roman Catholic | church. Mr. Roosevelt does not propose to be used by anyone to the disparage ment of anyone else. The appearance of Trlpple's state ment displeased many American Catholics, who forthwith manifested an intention of abandoning their purpose to attend the reception if the Methodist organization as repre sented by Mr. Tripple were to be present. The matter was carried to Mr. Roosevelt, who, after hearing both sides, promptly asked Mr. Leishman, !the American ambassador, to cancel the whole affair. This was done. King Victor Emmanuel called on I Mr. Roosevelt at the latter's hotel this morning. Some time was spent in animated conversation. Follow ing the chat the King and Mr. Roose velt entered a motor car and a visit was paid to the barracks of the cuirrassiers, the royal body guard. Mr. Roosevelt was again today be sieged by newspaper men who sought to draw from him an intima tion of his attitude towards the ad ministration of President Taft. He was told of reports circulated in the United States that there was a cold ness between the President and him self. The statement did not disturb bis equanimity or lead him into any com ment, but it can be said on excellent authority, how'ever, that any report that Mr. Roosevelt proposes to re pudiate his successor in the presi dency is “basely falsification.” It was also learned that Mr. Roose velt had hoped to see Senator Root In Europe but that the latter will not be able to make the Journey. Col. Roose velt will see Gifford Pincbot at Genoa, April 11. BROOKLYN BANK FAILURE. NEW YORK, April 6.—The doors of the union bank of Brooklyn were closed this morning. The bank has seven branches.
