at Central park opened yesterday and
will be open both day and evening for
the remainder of the week. The show
this year is more beautiful than ever
before. Thousands of chrysanthe
mums of all varieties and colors are

in quick succession, seem to shower
upon us and look as if all the stars had
suddenly left their places in the firma

of the sky, and then vanished.
One of these grand and magnificent
displays may be looked for on the
night of Nov. 13.
On the two nights immediately pre
ceding and succeeding this date there
will be more meteors seen than ordin

the meteors therefore are called "Ixo
nidas." Generally the display is not at all
times very brilliant, but once in every
33 years it is of wonderful slendor.
This is due to the fact that this mete
oric ring has a period of 33 years, and.
although the whole circumference of
the ring is thickly bespotted with me
teors, the main body of them reach
the earth's orbit only once in 33
years. The years 1S33, 1SG6 and 1899
are recorded as having witnessed the
most brilliant display of meteoric
showers ever seen before. The year
1932 is the time predicted for the next
There is also a ring of meteors
through which the earth passes in the
latter part of November of each year.
Their radiant point is in the constella
tion of Andromeda, and their period is
only nine years.
This shower comes generally on the
27th or 2Kth of November. This shower
derives special interest from its sup
posed connection with the lost Iliela's

as the lost comet, and it is possible
