TROIAX MAKES CLOSE FOR SIX YEARS The first eclipse of the sun which las been visible in Iowa City during :he past six years was visible this morning between nine and eleven o'clock. It was only partial as seen lere but the usual number of curi- ous people were out trying to get a glimpse of it through a smoked glass. The exact time of the beginning of the eclipse could not be taken at the university observatory owing to the cloudy weather at that time The computations mace toy 0. Trueman, of the mathematics H de- partment, some time ago gave the time as 9 hours 1 minute 28 sec- onds, which is thought to have been correct. The middle point came at 9 hours 52 seconds which was only a few seconds from the computed time, and the moon had passed en- tirely in front ot the sun at 10 hours 42 minutes seconds. Mr. Truman lad calculated that the end would :ome at 10 hours 43 minutes 12 sec- :onds later than it really passed. Only a small portion of the sun's liameter was covered as seen here and the daylight was not perceptibly diminished. The moon came in from .he south-west and passed off the iouth-east portion thus covering the ower part of the sun as seen here. While this eclipse is rather a small matter for us, for the inhabi- ants of Columbia and Venezuela it vill be far otherwise, for there it vill be total. The path of totality s a narrow strip which starts in the Pacific ocean, sweeps across the northwestern part of South America nto the Carribean Sea, and thence crosses the Atlantic to a point south- west of Ireland, where the shadow f the moon finally leaves the earth, fter having tiaveled across it eight housancl miles in about thiee hours, should the weather be cloudy, sudden coming of darkness will be striking, and wheie the sky is lear the Columbians and the pas- engers on those steamers which lave properly arranged their courses sill see that sight .which visits place, on the average, only once n three centimes, and which is de- cribed by all witnesses as one of he most impressive and avve-inspir- ng in the experience of total clipse of the sun. of books now used in the count} sWost Lucas township, formerly schools, but j' st what the changes will be is not definitely known at the present time.

He died at o'- clock this morning at the univer- sity hospital wilhoul regaining con- sciousness. No one saw the accident. He waa found directly beneath an opening from the floor above, but there are reasons to believe that he did not fall the distance of about eight feet. Mr. Martin is of the opinion that he fell over backward in a fainting spell or for some other cause and struck his head against the side of one of the stalls, the fracture being caused in this manner. About o'clock Mr. Martin was in the stable room and called to Dalton, who had been helping him about the barn since last sum- mer. He asked how he was getting along with his feeding. "I'm all answered Mr. Dallon. "I'll be right mean- ing that he would he in the office in. a moment to lake charge while his employer wenl to supper at 6 o'- clock. Mr. Martin then returned to the office, coming out again in about ten minutes. "I called for Bill he says, he did not answer. The lights were off and it was only when I came right close to the place where he was lying that I saw him on the floor. He never went up- stairs withoul turning on the lights, and I feel certain that he did not fall through the opening. His wheel- barrow was nol slanding in the us- ual posilion, either, for the handles were to the west rather than to the east, as he always left it.- He was through feeding, and there, would. have been no reason for his going upstairs, anyway." Mr. Dalton leaves a wife and four children. They are Mrs. Eva Siders, Marjorie, Alice, and Richard, all of Iowa City. He also has a brother, Byron Dalton, who lives here. He was a retired farmer 68 years of age, moving to Iowa City a year ago from his farm two miles south- west of the city and making his home at 323 S. Capital street. The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoon from the home, Reverend Nichols officiat- ing. Burial is to be in Oakland cem- etery. To Hold Inquest Coroner Hurd announced this af- ternoon that an inquest over the body of William Dalton would be held tomorrow. He said that Mr. Martin stalel last night that Dal- ton had gone upslairs to get a bale of hay, though he denied it this morning. The opening above is 'not protected in the slightest, and there is no rail to prevent anyone falling through in the darkness, so Coro- ner Hurd hints at criminal liability. DEATH COMES TO MRS.
