FALLING VERY RAPIDLY, What Will Happen if It Docs Hit tho Earth. Astronomers and scientists In general have been trying to figure out what would happen to thlsllttlo earth of ours Saturday, March 14. If they know what they are talking about that day should be a red letter day In tho world's history. They claim that a great big comet is a going to smash Into us. "Whether It will knock poor Mother Earth completely Into smith ereens, or merely push her Into an other part of tho unlvcrso, Is a question. This comet Is estimated to beWW.OOO,- 000 miles long. Tho exnet number of millions has not been figured out yet, but even If It wero only 100,000,000 In length, It Is sufficient to appal any one who has been In a railroad col lision whero the contending trains wero only 100 yards long. "What chance this little earth, which Is only about 8,000 miles thick at tho biggest part, will stand against n monster whoso length Is measured by hundreds of millions of miles Is too severe for the Imagination to picture. A BAItE miVlUJOK. Besides, some scientists claim that a comet only hits tho earth once in 1,500,000,000 years. If that is so, no one clso will enjoy tho sensation until tho year 1,500,001,800. The exact hour or tho day on which tho comet Is to crash Into us hits not yet been determined, for tho reason that It Is traveling toward us at tho rato of 1,700,000 miles u day. This means that It Is Hying through space at the rate of 72,000 miles an hour, or 1,200 miles a minute, or 20 miles a second. Under these conditions It Is quite Impossible for even tho most learned scientist to determine tho ex act hour of Its arrival. For the same reason no one knows whether It will first hit uw In Arrlca, Europe, Asa or America. But that docs not matter much, Imhuiiibc comets havo a habit or colling around any thing they lilt, llko a big boa con strictor encircles Its victim. Tho comet keeps on colling and colling until Its hundreds or millions' or miles or length nro all wrapped around whatever It hits. ANOTIlKIt DANOKlt. But there Is still another danger, even If It does not hit us, and It is unnerving to contemplate it than tho original. Professor C. A. Young, of Princeton, is well informed on comets, and he avers that there Is somo danger or tho Parrlno comet slipping by us and falling Into the sun. This would boa real catastrope, for all learned astronomer acknowledge that If a comet falls into the sun it would pro duco such an Increase of holar heat that we would all bo boiled or frizzled or fried up. "With thlsdangcrstarlug the people In the face, it seems that if tho matter were left to a opu!ur vote tho people of tha earth would elect to have the comet hit us and take tho attending chances rather than have It fall Into the sun and burn us up. Other astronomers who wish, evi dently, to reassure tho public, claim that in 1801 a comet several times larger than the one now heading for us lilt the carta wnua traveling at tho rato of 10.000.000,000 miles a day and nobody knew it. How they dis covered It so muny years after, they refused to make it main. Hut if these astrouomers arc telling tho truth. It places the other astronomers who say that a comet only hits us once lu fifteen hundred million years in un awkward position. Clearly either ouo set of astronomers or mo outer is muk Intra tcrriblo blunder. An astronomer on tho subject of tlio maKctipoia comet says: "It is not a solid body like the earth. It Is made up of minute bodies. Wo migut compare u wiin a uusiy ctouu. While in slzo it compares with tho earth, there Is no comparison in the olldltyof the two. Thero is certainly much difference In opinions regarding comets by comet experts, but If this ono should hit ns.it will probably result lu a great IMipular Interest being taken In the subject of astronomy on and arter Saturday, March 14. DWELLING BURNED. Joseph SutcllfTe Loses His Home East of Town No Insurance. This morning early tho ramlly or Joseph SutclllTe, whft lived on tho old Steele placo near tho red barn Just east of Salem, discovered lire lu their wood-shed adjoining tho house. There was only a small hlazo when first round, and no trouble was anticipated in putting It out, but a strong wind was blowing, and tho lire was soon be yond control.

The Congregational council has adjourned until next week without finding a verdict regarding Rov. C. O. Brown, Tho genoral belief among tho best In formed Is that tlio council will find that Brown has not been proven guilty of Immortality, but that ho has been guilty of tiumlnlstcrinl con duct.
