Have you seen the new comet? I It has been visible in the region, af tho big dipper for upwards of a month I !now. Tho llrst person In town to BOO j it was Dr. McClure, who tells tho Her- i aid that tho phenomenon 'was visible with the naked eye over u month ago. 1 The outline has not 'been very distinct, and is obscured by a milky naze. When the sky IB clear it can bo Keen ijulte tlie'hantile of the dipper, on the side opposite the north etar. Tho Montreal Witness has tbe fol- lowing Interesting account of the comet: i There is a new comet in the sky I which can be seen with the aid of u i glass on a favorable opportunity. When the moon In 'below the horizon, it can 'be seen to have a tail a couple of degrees long. That Is to say, a tail that appears about four times as long ff j as the 'breadth of the moon. This comet caii be located by anyone who knows the Great Dipper arid the North Star. It is at present just under the 11 handle of tho Big Dipper. That la to I jsay, on tho opupsite side of the handle 11 to the North Star. In the evenings It ff is very low on the'northern horizon, i! and 'will not observable until the ff j present moon has lost its 'brightness. By that time, it win have travelled a place where it can be found by look- ing down a Hue drawn from-the North Star through the middle-of tho handle of the Dipper, for a distance past the handle about half as great as the dis- tance between the North Star and-the handle of the Dipper. The comet is travelling towards Arctums, and in another three or four weeks wi'l ,be seen just nortii of that star: that is, towards the Pole Star from It. Arctur- us is a ver.v bright star.'that can eas- ily be found by using the first two stars in th.e handle of the Dipper ?H pointers. Looking along tho line that these two stars mark in a direction away from the howl fef the Dipper this very brilliant star immediately catche the eye, though it is 'not -exactly in the line indicatotl, but near to it. The new comet) at its' nearest approach will be a very long distunes from thi earth, over a hundred and forty-five million miles. Had it happened to conn when the earth was at a different par of its orbit around the sun, it migh have conie quite close to us. Th new comet is a hundred times a bright as the great comet of Halley which was so much talked of fou years ago, but which, proved so disap pointing. Just "HOT; comets are constructed we have as yet somewhat va-gue notions it is not even known whether ther-a is any solid part in the head of a comet the only good proof we have one or the other, makes it rather doubt ful that there is anything solid abou a comet at all. This was obtain ed in 1882, when a great comet pass ed directly between the earth and the sun. The only; two persons to observe its passage were -Mr. Pindlay and Mr Elluu, of the Cape of Good Hope ob- servatory. Neither of them could see that it obstructed the sun's light at all However, at the time of the passage tile sun was very close over Table Mountain, a and the heat, radiating from the mountain, made its limb un dulate badly, so that it is possible a small dark spot might have passed un- observed. It seems probable that there- are chunks of iron similar to the meteorites, that we call shooting stars, in the comet's head. As to the millions of miles of brightness that we call the tail of a comet, it probably contains less substance than our light- est gab; To call it a "tail is rather a misnomer, for the comet does no! draw it after it, does it own it in the shape of a tail during the years of its separate 'existence when it is a'way'from ouasun; it is only when the comet approaches the sun that this cloud of minute particles is forc- ed out into" a "streamer by the action of the sun. .-For this reason, when tk-e comet is approaching" toe sun, the tail is behind the comet; but when the comet is going away- from the sun, its fail travels in front of it. There are a little' over fourteen comets which have 'become the regular calling ac- quaintances-of-astronomers. Each of these IB named after an astronomer, and they, at regular periods.. The one that comes most fre quently can be seen, ivith a telescope every four years." Thirteen others have established periods ranging from four and a six and a quarter years. One goes! around the sun every :en years. others come in put of space only; once every thirty-three years. Every once in-a while our sys- :em loses a comet by its passing too Closely behind Jupiter, and being ;hrown off Into space On the other hand, the solar 'system continually )icks up new comets; which, dropping n to'iyard; (he sun are imprisoned and cept going round it.

West- ern Canadian exhibitors at tho great- est of farming conventions, again swept everything before them in the grain classes, and Nick Taitinger of Claresholm raised the best bushel of in tho world this year, and an- jncxed' the sweepstakes in barley ex- hibits. Mr. Wheeler took the first for flax, and the prize for the best bushel of oats was won by Richard Creod, of Albion, King's County, Prince-Ed- ward Island. The Mo-therwell cup was awarded to Saskatchewan, lor the best ex- hibit of grains and grasses. This information was telegraphed to Hon. Robert Rogers at Ottawa'by Mr. E. P. Drake, supsrintendent of irrigation, who attended the con- gress. It seems as though it were impos-i sible for a dry farming congress to pass without Western Canada com- ing most decidedly to the foro in-the grain classes. This is the third time that Mr. Taitinger has won the first prize for his exhibit of barley, and Western Canada has lline and again captured the wheat prize.
