", S SOUTH 20th the comet will be at perihelion, when it comes within 54 million miles of the center of the sun. Then it turns in its course and starts on its long flight for 38 years off Into the depths of space to a distance of 3000 millions of miles. The closer and loser tbe comet comes to the sun, the .more does the heat of the sun act on the material forming the head, and generate forces to throw off matter which eventually forms the tall. TVe are not absolutely certain of the nature nf Vio nHr onrp nf The comet- thoush -- - - - t-hfi cnnmnsus of oDinion seems- to la- was sufficient to start a great cumc scare one of the many we have had that the comet was going to collide with the earth, and as a result the earth was to be blown to pieces. This, of course, proved that a "little know ledge is a very dangerous thing," for the calculations of the astronomer showed that the earth would arrive at the crucial point a month before the comet As we now know, no harm came to the earth. On the third return in 1846 something remarkable had hap pened to Biela's comet, something un heard of in cometary history, a separa tion had taken place, and the comet was divided into two parts which moved along side by side. On the next return In 1852, no further change had taken place, the two comets were ob served side by side. But from that day to this, the comet as such has never returned. Had the calculations been astray? "Was this the case of a lost comet, a splendid meteor shower was comet, or what had happened? In 1872 when the earth was passing the former path of the comet, a splendid meteor shower was seen.fl which appeared again in 1S92, and with less frequency in other years. Tbe scientific world now call these meteors, the Beileids, to signify that thev formerly were the interesting comet. It was first split up into two, then into thousands and millions of particles. The paths of many other comets and meteor showers have been i,i. riofQli on that it is thought i that the comet may be only the denser portion of a meteor shower, wnere tue particles are more closely packed to gether. On account of the meteoric character of the head, the sun's heat causes the comet to be more and more active the closer it comes to the sun, and as a result the comet of itself Is generally brightest and the tail the longest. But the brilliancy of the comet in the sky depends not only on the brightness of the comet itself, but also on Its distance from the earth, the comet's distance being decreased by two. its light to our eyes would be in- creased four-fold. Hence, though the comet will really be brightest on April 20. it will be most prominent in the skies when nearest the earth just be fore and just after lay 18. Heavens aintle Plain. By referring to the diagrams many points of interest will be made plain. First of all is to be noticed that the comet moves about the sun in a di rection opposite to that taken by the Planets. If we join simultaneous posi tion's of earth and comet, we will see that on larch 26, the line Jo comet passes through the sun. If we place ourselves at the position of the earth on that day, we will see that the comet moves from the left of the sun to the right of it. As everyone knows a boay to "the left of the sun sets after it, ana lfTto the right of our great luminary, Itjises before It- Hence, on March 23, Halley's comet passed to the other side of the sun and became a morning ob- !H.

The comet leaves the line to the sun slowly, and it will be near the middle of April before it is far enough to be out of the sun's glare. . The comet then should readily be visible to the naked eye and it will rapidly increase In brightness. On April 20 It is at perhelion, swinging along in space at 31 miles per sec ond. Following along with the dates it is seen that the comet and earth get closer and closer, and on May 18 it passes between us and the sun, moving now from the right of the sun to the left, and becoming again an evening object. Just before and after this date, in morning and evening skies the comet should be so brilliant that a quarter of a century hence, we will fondly tell our grandchildren of the great comet of 1910. The comet in 1759 showed at times a tail 50 percent in length, and It was much brighter than in 1S35. But in the latter year we were unfavorably situated in the earth's orbit to see the comet well, and this explains the di minution of brightness, which was ap parent only and not real. Another glance at the diagram will show that at the beginning of May the comet and Venus come very close to gether. Venus will then be in the morning sky almost at her greatest brilliancy, and the two close together should prove worth getting out of bed for. The position of the comet in the sky can readily be found from the .follow ing table. How to Find Halley's Comet. 0 d- ffl SB O " P-i o a o r Comet In the Morning Sky. o n . .. ii- ThTm.

On February 5 Prof. Barnard measured the length of ' tail to be five million miles, and by February 27 'this bad' Increased to 14 j million. The tail will thus be long enough to reach past the earth on May 18, when the comet is 14 million miles from the earth. We will cut through the tall, but the story of what we may see then will have to wait till later. Those who were fortunate enough to have seen Comet A 1910. will Inquire what has become of it. It has not dis appeared from our skies, but is gtju visible. On the morning of the 13th of March Prof. Barnard picked it up with the 12-inch telescope. The comet was then of the ninth magnitude and shows no trace of tail, looking not much dif ferent from an ordinary star.

Its position in the sky corres ponds very closely with a perihelion passage of January 17th, the day when it was discovered. The Planets. Mercury is at superior conjunction on April 5, "and will be invisible during the first of the month. Venus Is a morning star and for a couple of days before sunrise, is a brilliant object. On April 23 she is at her greatest elongatidn west from the sun, and the following day shows half her disk illuminated. "When closest to Halley's comet, it will be 11 degress south of it. Mars Is slowly getting towards the west, now setting almost midnight. The diameter has decreased to 5 inches, so little of the detail may be seen on the planet, Jupiter has just passed opposition and Is closest to the earth and bright est. At the first of the month it is on the meridian at midnight. The four brllghtest satellites are readily visible In a good pair of field glasses, and the belts of Jupiter, which are always in teresting to an amateur, are seen with but a small telescope. On April 21 It will be in conjunction with the moon about midnight. Saturn will be in conjunction with the sun on April 1"6, and will not be visible this month. Uranus will be at quadrature 90 de grees west from the sun on April 15, and Neptune is 90 degrees east from the sun in Gemma on April 6. It needs, however, a strong glass. As usual the map represents the sky as it appears at 9 p. m. on the first of the month, at' 8 p. m. on the 15th and 7 p. m. at the end.

A special dispatch from "Washington says that a press dispatch from Globe, Ariz., stating that the interior depart ment had abandoned the project of con structing a dam in Box canyon, which virtually assures the grant of permis sion to the Arizona Eastern railway to extend its line through thiis canyon, is wrong. According to the dispatch it was further declared that application for right of way, made to the interior department, was opposed by a reservoir company, which sought to construct the . , It Is stated at the interior department that no decision has yet been rendered ;ln connection with the proposition to construct a reclamation dam in Box canyon of the Gila river. The matter, the officials said, was still under con sideration. The department has received appli cations for two rights of way in the Gila river, one relating to a reservoir and the other to a railroad. Both ap plications were under consideration, it was said, and no decision had yet been reached. BARON AND COUNT ARItrVE FROM MEXICO Baron Jacques de Montesquicer and Count de St. Croix, of Parjs.

BAPTISTSFORWINEW G H U R G 1-1 ON THE I0BTH SIDE Pratemal Meetings to Be Held at First Church and Chapel Sunday. There are to be two fraternal services Sunday between the First Baptist church, of this city, and the pew Bap tist church, organized Friday night in the Immanuel Baptist chapel, which has been a branch of the First church for more than six years. The morning services will be held in the First church, on Magoffin avenue. The subject of the pastor's sermon will be, "At the Parting of the "Ways." This service will be followed by the Lord'3 supper. The Sunday night services will be held in the chapel on Montana street, near Houston square. The pastor's ser mon will be "The Glorious Church." There will also be a suitable response made bj- a representative of the new church organization. The chorus choir will render special music in both serv ices. There will be no Sunday night services in the First Baptist church, so that the congregation may attend the fraternal services in a body. Ar rangements nre made to accommodate a large congregation in the chapel building, where regular Sunday services will be held every Sunday, morning and night. The interior of the chapel has been made very attractive. A new piano has recently been placed in the chapel and a good supply of new song books han also been provided for the services. Some of the best singers of the city have been engaged for the Sunday serv ices The new church has been developed and organized in perfect harmony with the First Baptist church, and under its fostering care, and was the first chris tian work organized north of the rai road tracks. It has been the plan of the First Church for more than six years to develop a Baptist church at this location. Scott White & Co., now at 204 St. Louis.

Blind girl who had been pronounced hopeless by entire Medical Association of Texas, when they met here in El Paso. This was, of course, hopeless to them, for they did not know how to push these vertebrae back so as to loosen the nerves which were deadened to the eyes, and it all goes to show that they do not know how' to free the nerves to the lungs in a case of pneu monia or consumption, and they have m 11 4i j o 1 in Its History.-' to have the nerves freed to the lungs just the same as these Wind people did to their eyes. , It is the same in heart diseases, which, are being cured every day. They are congested at the spine and heart weakened by it. Also, they do not know how to free the ribs in Asthma, so the air can be expelled from the lungs and cause vacuum to draw fresh air in- That is why the Still Osteopath. In firmary is curing them every day, while drug doctors are helpless. In Neuralgia and all kinds of head aches we loosen the nerve so' ifc can cause circulation of blood and feed the nerve and you are well again. Droves of them have been cured here in El Paso of stomach troubles and liver troubles, and indigestion. Free the nerves and the circulate starts up and you are yourself again. Rheumatism is only a congested serve to some of the muscles. I have never seen a case of any ki4 of rheumatism that was incurable by Osteopathy, and we have more cases, I suppose, than all the rest of the city. In BRIGHT'S DISEASE, we free "the nerves to kidneys and, that is why, when we restore them to normal, they carry all the waste out of the system, asd you are well again, and because the nerve was pressed on, and weakened had more poison to carry off than it was able to is why you cannot cure by putting in more poison and whipping up the already over worked nerves.
