Serviss 'n the Spo kane Inland Herald gives a good scientific explautiou of  ht a comet really is, as follows: It is probable that co:nts have originatel form tile sun. but not ou the form of projectiles shol out of it. The trend of recent. investgation is to show that comets, hke tile planets, were originally formed from the prim eval mass of matter theft gave birth to the sun and the -system of attendant bodies. Comets, according to this view. are not Simple interlopers from outer space, as was formerly .upposed, but they have us muct right to claim nationality m tim solar system as have the planets. 'Phey differ from the planets ill being less massive and in hi, ring orbits much more eccentric. They are the sun's scous, and their excursions carry them to enortnous distances Into the wastes of exta planetary space. but sooner or later they come oack te report at headquarters. The mucleus of a comet is pro bably solid, but not a single solid tody. It is likely that tim head ofacomet consists of a multi- rude of solid particles, like a close packed mass *f meteors. Llm fact float many comets ar' uown to l, ave tucned into meteo:i swarms strengthens ths proba bility. The gaseous portion of a come does not condense into crysal.- b,cause there s practically at, pressure exerted upon it in op- en space. The cold there would no doubt be suflicien[ to ]iquefs or solidify tt into gas, butexperi ments show that cold alone can not produce thm transformation; there must be great pressure al so. If the tail of a comet were nothing but an illusion produced by the sunlight thrown intoth form of a beam, like the rays caused by open pigeonholes in a haymow, there would have to be all about the sun and throaghout the sAar system some kind,el The Evolution of Booster B/II l.--He Was Once Bill Blue Bill Blue was once s knocker, and He knocked us all to best the band.

There is no evidence of the existence of any- thing of the kind, and if it did exist it would produce a general misty illumination of tim sky. In order that the head of a comet should act like a lens it would ]ave to be transparent to the ordinary rays of light, which is contrary to all that we know of the nature of such bodies. Than, 'oo. the shape and the changes undergone by tile tails of comets are inconsistent with the hypothesis that they are simply condensed bodies of sun- light, The spectroscope also gives positive evidence that the ema nations from comets consist of ffases, mingled perhaps with minute solid particles- They al o contain hydrocarbon gases. The wonderful tail of the recent Comet "A" showed the presence of sodium, the base element of common salt. In short, the e is no getting :way from the fact that comets re very real things, and it will be no illusion that we shall have to deal with this mouth if Hal ley's come stretches it; tail over the earth, however innocuous the reality may be. Dispatch G, N, Traits by Phone The Great Northern railway has just ordered telephone train dispatching apparatus to be m- stalled on six more divisions of its road. The road is already using the telephone on approx- imately 2100 miles of line, and the new extension, which in- cludes the Fergus Fahs, Breck- inridge, Cascade, Northern, Da- kota, and St. Cloud divisions, reaches in th2 neighborhood,of 1000 miles. When the proposed equipment has been installed the telephone train dispatching system of the Great Northern railwa wilt ex tend over the entire system from M,nneapolis and Superior to Se- attle and Vancouver, and it is believed, will cover the longes! continuous stretch of any rail road in the country.
