at least its end as a habitation for living beings He states that Fayefs comet which ap proached so near the earth some years ago is returning BOW and that this time its path will directly cross that of the earth at the very time the latter is at the point of crossing The result will be says the astronomer that such heat will be generatedthat earth and comet will be fused into a fluid mass He offers consolation in the fact that long before this happens the noxious gases of the comet will have destroyed all life in the He points to the continued drouth the world over as one of the first indications of his coming cate clysm and those alert for signs will doubtless find still farther confirmation of his claims in the recent earthquake A Poem for tHe Woman Ponder A golden gateway
