The Comet la Coming.
Much curiosity and excitement will
lie caused next year by the return of
Halley's comet, the largest and most
s-iectacular that ever visited our so
lar system during historic time. As
tronomers cannot tell us the exact
day the comet will cross the earth's
orbit and therefore cannot determine
whether any danger threatens. It Is
not wholly lnioslble for a comet
to greatly Injure the earth and less
Impossible that It might come so close
to the earth that animal and human
health would be Impaired. The chan
ces, however, ar Immensely against
any danger next year from Halley's
Probabilities are that we will see
In this comet the finest display and
the most wonderful ever witnessed by
many Mople now living. This comet
returns every 7." years and those who
might remember Its last visit must
now be at least 0 years old.
Astronomers are not sure a to Its
form during the coming appearance
as It has frequently changed its av
pcaraucc. It Is the first comet defi
nitely recorded In history, It having
caused great alarm more than 20o0
year ago. Mots- anon atMv.it this
