Spectacular Comet Returning After Seventy-Five Years Absence (The following and four articles to follow, telling something of this re- markable phenomenon, have been pre- pared for -the Toronto Daily Star by Professor Frederick Campbell, of the Brooklyn Institute.) Coming from a distance of 000 miles greater than that of the most remote planet and returning absence of 75 years, we can trace the movements of this great comet, already discovered in our sky, and soon to be seen for months by everyone. It is true that the comet's motions are followed only in our im- ter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptvne. Be- fcveen Mars and Jupiter there is' a swarm of little worlds, known as as- teroids, not less than 500 via number. The first fovr planets named are small. The other four are large. Those, nearest the sun travel most swiftly; those farthest tlie most slow- ly. Mercury is seldom." seen, because so'close to the sun as usually to be lost in-its bright rays. Venus is the brightest star in the heavens, and the nearest" to the earth. Mars is the world suspected of being inhabited because of its "canals." Jupiter is mediate vicinity. But the curve our largest planet. Saturn is the which it makes while within our view wonderful world girdled with rings, proves the curve that it. must make Uranus and Neptune are not seen ex- while beyond, so that we are able cept with the telescope. These plan- to track the monster, as if we "saw it every day for the 75. years.. We need first to understand the ar- rangement of the members the so- lar system, to which both the comet and the earth belong: At! the centre ets shine only with the sun's reflected light. All. other stars are suns. Avoids Stars Easily The planets travel not perfect cir- cles, but ellipses, -a little longer one way ?han the that its path may run nearer the sun in one direction and further back into the other, than that of any planet. As Halley's comet is usually about 75 years in making its complete or- bit, it is travelling back to the sun from its .most distant point, as "aphelion." Though it comes from a much creator distance than Neptune, it makes no approach to'that its path bearing off by quite an angle. Hence, as it draws near, we do not need to think of it as passing any planet before Jupiter.

In closing this let- ter, permit me to say that we want the Mounted Police, when they risit us next summer, to call at a "shack" and have a good square meal; and also to open their eyes and look on our wheat fields, and we also want them to either tell the truth or say nothing when they return. We also want a coroner. Some man may have a grudge against me because of what I am writing, and bring me home dead some night and say that I got a8 quart o! whisky and drank it hy the way and died.

Von L.

The Tennessee of the Pacific squadron, won the trophy last year in a lively competition off the coast j of California; when David T. Ham. first vice president of the chamber of commerce, made the presentation. During the recent contest the Wash- ington appeared to be in the running to capture the prize, having defeated the Tennesses, but the full reports from the Atlantic squadron showed that the Maryland had the best sin- ners. The trophy, a large cup sop? ported by guns and by sailors in ac- tion, is composed of ounces of Banking Service The Bank of Toronto, its ample and widsly- eitended banking facilities, its experience of more than, 50 years of banking inCariadaJ and its well-known financial strength, is able to give its many customers an "unex- celled banking service.
