Mr Daniels holds the Thaw follow ship in astronomy, the annual Income of a gift of $10,000 by Mr. Milliam 't haw, of Pittsburg. The cornel discovered by him last i week is his third. When asked about the new come Mr. Daniels said today: “Of course, while the new cou*"t appears about three times as large as the earth, according to measurements estimated from tin* computation of its orbit, it doesn’t contain one thou sandth part of tno matter, or solids, which the earth does. Cl asses and vapors appear to make up a large part, of it. Yet it seems to have a star-like nucleus. "A remarkable thing about it too, was that on the night 1 saw it, 1 could distinguish a star many mil lions of miles further away, shining right through the comet." W.

The pay provided for the conscript Is necessarily very trilling Indeed and will not compare with that paid to vol untcct soldiers. In fact. It Is generally true that the conscript must fall back 1 •' upon his private means. The methods vary In each country But take the case of one European 6 power.
