Not Been Seen Since 1835
Will Be Brightest in
J. A. JOHNSON
Washington, Aug. 24. "If yon "live
until next spring you will witness one
of the most magnificent sights the
heavens have ever disclosed," mid
one of the well known members of the
astronomical force at the United States
Naval observatory today to the Ulolie
Democrat correspondent. "Halloy's
comet comes only once in a lifetime,
and many are l»orn, live and die with
out ever catching a glimpse of it in its
dash across the skies. It was last seen
in iw i&. and few poisons now alive can
say they have seen it."
The astronomer explained that ^the
entire Astronomical world is now*%on
and that hnge refracting
telescopes, as well as reflecting ones,
are being trained upon the heavens
from every important strategic point
of observation in an effort to locate the
comet, which is approaching the earth
at a rate that would make the swiftest
express train look like a snail.
With every advantage aa the result
of tlM put three-quarter* if a century
of development in astronomical
science, at their command, all of the
leading observatories are engaged now
in friendly rivalry to see which will
be the tiist to sight the comet. The
moineut this is done the news will
travel as fast as cable and wireless
can carry the announcement, and the
following-night telescopes in the live
continents will be trained like big
guns toward the domain of the new
comer in the heavens.
"The coming of this comet will be
by far the most important astronomical
event of recent years We hava cal
cnlated that Hal ley's comet is now
within the orbit of the plane,Jupiter,"
said the astronomer, ''and is rushing
toward the orbit of the earth at the
rate of a million miles a day. As a
faint nebulous objwt in the constella
tion Orion it will ao doubt be sighted
in a few weeks. In fact celestial pho
tography has it already located iu lim
itless space far beyond the vision of the
most delicate telescopic research.
As the comet enteis into the orbit of
our solar system it will grow brighter
every day until it becomes visible to
the naked eye. Aside from this it lias
an interesting place in classical, as
well aa astronomical literature.
When it was last seen it was a year
before the birth of Simon Newcornh,
the great American astronomer, who
has just died, but whose splendid
mathematical mind had long since lo
cated its wherealoiits in ihe far away
realms of infinite Bpace.
There will be no danger of 'a colli
sion. When closest it will be about
20,000,000 miles away. It should be
brightest about next May. After
al)out July it will gradually pass
away arid early in 1911 disappear into
a night of impenetrable darkness, to
be seen no more until the close of the
Water Moccaain Escapes from

Rapid City, Aog. 24.—The appear

snake in a Chinese restaurant created ,t
panic among a party of soldiers, |i.-i
trons of the place, who, writh the pro
prietor, fled precipitately at the ap

The snake proceeded to an adjoining
saloon and took refuge in a refrigera

was frightened it the sight of the
snake coiled comfortably in a corner of
the ice box.
He leat a hasty retreat, and upon
returning, armed with a revolver with
which to kill he intruder found that it
had given birth to several little
snakes. The process of multiplication
continued until twenty seven tiny
snae were wriggling about the room.
By this time a great throng had
gathered and the police were com
pelled to scatter the crowd, which was
blin king the stree'g.
