Norfolk people who are up at 4 a.
in. may see the big comet which is
Just now exciting star gazers. All
over the land people are pushing for
ward their rising hours to take n peep
at the new comet recently called a
"terrestrial hobo" by n Chicago news
paper aslronomer. High up in the
heavens on these clear August nights
It can bo seen with the naked eye
whirling through the stars at the rate
of thirty miles each second. This ter-
' restrlal hobo is called "Daniel's com-
el. " Just at the present time It Is
wandering somewhere between the
! eastern horizon and Hyadnos. Hack
drivers , policemen and other early
j morning denizens of the street see It
ns a hazy patch of light growing
brighter night after night. On September
tember 3It will bo ' 17,000.000 miles
from the sun. and will then be bright-
to the earth. Through a giant tel
escope at Ycrko observatory Professor
.13. E. Barnard has made a collection
Jot remarkable photographs of the
.heavenly wanderer. These pictures
are said to be the best over made of
I a comet. The comet has n long tall
| of flying "specks" ofburning lava ,
each speck of course , as big as a Kan-
j sas barn.
'I Great possibilities In the cattle ship
ping Industry at Rapid City Imvo been
opened up through the leasing by Nel
son Morris , the well known Chicago
' packer , of over 750,000 acres of grn/-
Ing land northeast of there on the
Standing Rock Indian reservation. For
nearly ten years this land has been
I controlled on a lease by the L7 cattle
, ( . whoso bid for renewal was a
| fraction of a cqnt per aero less than
that of Morris. Five years ago the
iL7 people fenced the land , and for
i' ' years hnvo had several largo droves of
cattle on this range , but with the
1coming of Morris , this number Is 'to
bo largely Increased. Morris owns
much land In Texas , and has always
grazed his cattle there. Since se
curing this lease In South Dakota he
has moved 5,000 head of his catlle and
Intends to bring In many other herds
as soon as possible. This Is the first
Instance where Morris has over fed
any of his big cattle holdings in the
north , and the result will bo of con
siderable Interest to catllemen. This
tract that Morris has secured Is one
of the finest In the northwest It Is
well watered and close to the Evarts
trail , and Is not accessible to outsiders
for grazing purposes , owing to Its fenc
ing. The lease Is to run for five years
and In case it is not renewed , the fenc
ing , which Is over 300 miles in length
will revert to the Indians. Mr. Mor
ris has put C. H. Hardey of Hulett
Wyo. , ono of the prominent stockmen
of the northwest , In charge of his
land. Mr. Hardey has boon brand inspector
specter for both the Northwestern
Stock Growers' association and the
Western South Dakota association
