- I . THE SALT LAKE TIMES, TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 1, 1890, 3 ON METEORIC SHOWERS. THEIR VISITS OF FREQUENT PERI-ODICAL OCCURRENCE. Pecultaritiea of tha IleaYenly Displays. New Feature of tha Sun Remain! to tha Aatronomen A Talk With, a Frofaaaor on a Sky Hlh Subject. In answer to several questions regard-ing the. frequency of meteoric showers Professor Very 6aiil: "TUero are certain epochs in the year when particular meteoric showers are due. Assiduous observation has given a list of nearly 100 such showers in the course of a year, each of which may be expected on a certain data from a certain part of the heavens. "Particular showers havo characteris-tic features; that is, some meteors are very swift: others rather slow-- . Some vanish and leave no trace, while other are accompanied by tails and leavt streaks after the nucleus has disap-peared. Few of these showers last mor than one or two days, though there are some instances where ii is suspected that successive meteors belonging to the same group appear during several weeks. Cer-tain dates have been noticed to be more especially fireball epochs. That is, the rare event of an exceptionally large and brilliant meteor or fireball it more apt to occur on certain dates. "Jan. 25 is the date of the meteoric shower characterized by the swiftness of its components, which are usually at-- tended by streaks. The radiant point of this shower is in the constellation called Bernice's Hair, a star cluster oue of the morning constellations. As this meteor is claimed to havo been seen in the even ing it is more likely to have been one of the unclassified sporadic meteors. Infor-mation as to the position of motion, ap-parent brilliancy, color, time of appear-ance and length of time duriujr, which the appearance lasted is likely to be valu-able in the recovery of the principal characterist ics of an event which is neces-sarily seen but by few." - "How do you account for these mete-oric showers coming at regular periods?" was asked. "All that we can say is that the celes-tial spaces are thinly populated in every direction with these scattered f raj;niont8, which axe veritable miniature planets traveling in different orbits around the sun in many instances, and serving as messengers from one star to another in others. " "The number of them is simply countl-ess. They make up in number what tbey lack in 6ize, so that if we could gather together all the minute members that go to make up a group it might make a body of very respectable size, al-though the individual components are so small that they seldom escape completo disintegration and dissolution in their passage through the atmosphere." "What produces the great light which always follows the passage of a meteor?" "The light which is seen while the pas-sage of a meteor through the air lasla may be due partly to tha combustion of the materials of the air of life, but it k mainly an incandescence of the condens-ed atmosphere which accumulates in ad-vance of an object which is moving many times the rapidity of a cannon bull often, I may say, with many hundred times the rapidity of a cannon ball Un-der these conditions even the seemingly flimsy resistance of the air becomes aa great as that of a solid body, producing intense heat, and in the case of a large meteoric stone frequently resulting in the fracture and demolition of the object. "Colored meteors are sometimes seen with a peculiar tint of Jthe flame, being due to the burning of some special ingre-dient of the meteor. We have yellow, green and occasionally red meteors, but tho majority are white like the majority of the stars. It cannot be said that any one part of the earth can be more affect-ed by these visitants than another. There is, however, a diurnal periodicity, the larger numbers being seen in the early morning hours when that portion of the heavens comes in view toward which the the orbital motion of the earth is carry-ing us. We then see not merely the com-paratively few meteors whose speed is sufficient to enable them to overtake the earth, but that larger number composed of all those which are gathered up iu the track of the advancing earth, whether moving with against or athwart its course." "The appearance of the oollected re-sults of the observation of tho total eclipse of Jan. 1, 1889, shows that this event has added many interesting facta to tho pre-vious knowledge of such occurrences. A large and very perfect photograph of the corona was obtained by Professor William II. Pickering, of Cambridge, Mass., and one of a smaller size by Pro-fessor Barnard, of tho Lick observatory. "These show the sheaves of curling fragments about the sun's poles in great detail, indicating the composite natura of many of the individual iilaments, and confirming the photographs taken at the previous win spot minimum of 187ti, thus rendering it almost certain that tlio corona at this period assumes a symmet-rical form with regularly disposed lila-uien-curving away on either side of the sun's axis and broad equatorial wiagl of less discriminated etrncture. "AU this is very different from what is seen during an eclipse when the ac-tivity of the sun is in its height. At such times the corona hag a rudely quadrila-teral outline, with four wir.gn projecting from regions approximately 4U dK. north and south of the equator, and the whole is made up of curved branching and interlacing BtrcanK-- extending w a much greater distance from the body of the sun, and with tho equatorial sheaves less, symmetrically diBOsed. In regard to the extent of the corona, it is diflicult to compare successive eclipses observed from different part3 of tue earth with verv varying atmospheric condition. A small amount of haze will blot out uiucii of the fainter detail. The presence r absence of some of theso fainter features may merely signify the. presence or ab-sence of tin couduion of their but the variation of type in a tiiia beyond question. We wem to have a connection indicated between the brod equatorial winzs a:: J the sua spot ioces." I'lttoburii Di. paieb. i. j. its & We Hare the Oldest Real Estate Agency T? Salt Lake City.

"I begged the man to call the dog back and let the minks havo the quail, but he wouldn't listen to me. Again he ordered the dog fo fetch "the quail in, and again the dog made an effort to reach it, but the ice cracked and he turned about, whined piteously, and ia every way that he knew how begged his master to call him back. But the heartless man was determined to make the dog do as be said, and ho yelled savagely at the pointer to get the dead bird. Then the dog sprang forward and seized the quail The ice gave way under him, tho cur-rent was swift, and out of sight tho poor thing went, with the bird in his mouth. That was the lost thecruel man ever saw of bis obedient dog. He hunted down tho river for a long distance, but it was use-less, for tho dog had perished under tho ice while faithfully performing his duty. The man was sorry, then, of course, and indeed the poor dog's death taught bira a lesson ho never forgot." While hunting partridges near Round Swamp, in Clifton township, last fall, Aaron Bidgood saw a fox scrambling around in a mud puddle at a great rate. He was interested in the animal's queer antics, and after he had watched the lively fox for awhile he came to the con-clusion that it was catching frogs, or at least trying to catch them. Its tail was covered with mud, and it was hopping and jumping around in mud and water upon its beily when Bidgood etolo up near enough to see that the sly fellow was really gobbling up a frog every few seconds. Bidgood said he didn't caro to molest it just then, and while he was watching its capers from the midst of a clump of bushes another fox, apparently the first one's mate, sprang into the mud hole from the opposite side and went to catching the long legged occupants of tho puddle on its own hook. When Bid-go-had looked at the cuuning frog eat-ers as long as he cared to, be yelled, and the two mud covered fojeos floundered out of the puddle in a hurry and scam-pered directly toward the clump of bushes where the hunter was concealed. They were very much frightened, and the mud on their bushy tails and in their long fur kept their speed down consid-erably, and when they came along Bid-goo- d killed each of them with a charge of bird shot. A fox that had been chased by a hound for ten hours lost its lifo in a peculiar way in the Lackawanna valley late on a day iu January. Reynard had been pur-sued until he was protty well tuckered out, and he ran down into the valley from tho Spring Brook side. He pointed for tho Lackawanna river, but near the bank he changed his course, swung around a large coal breaker, and ran up the steep incline to the head house at the top of tho breaker. Thro-g- h the head house he dashed, and then ran along a beam, sprang from the end of it to a culm pile, and scampered up the refuse railroad track to the summit, where culm was dumped. At the dump the fox darted past a boy and a mule, and started to slide down the steep pitch of loose mine refuse toward the river. The base of the culm pile has been on fire for sev-eral years, the fire extending up the side for forty or fifty feet When the fox had begun to slide down he couldn't stop himself, and he slid right into the mass of glowing anthracite and was so badly burned before he got through it that he lay down and died close to the river bank. The hound, inside of half an hour, loped up the incline to the head house. It nosed around and bayed for a few seconds, lost the scent, and then dashed down the slope to a spot where it had left the level ground. There it got on the track again, and when it started up the plane the second time one of the men threw chunks of coal at it and it went yelping out of sight Scranton Letter in New York Sun. LITTLE STORIES OF ANIMALS. A Dog That Died for a Foot Master Cart-on. Death of a Fox. "I have never let any of ray dogs re-trieve birds since an experience I had with a cruel sportsman over on the Dela-ware river late one fall," said a Scranton bird shooter the other day. "The man owned a splendid pointer that knew a good deal more about some thiugs tjian his master did, and we were both shoot-ing quails over him along the banks of the river. lie was harsh with the dog, and the poor creature was often com-pelled to do what he knew to be sense-less things, just because he felt certain that he would be licked like the mischief if he didn't obev. Each side of the river was frozen over out to the main channel, where there was a strip about a foot wide that wasn't covered with ice. One of the qaaH that I ohot started to-fl- across the rh cf and dropped dead on the thin ice within a few inches of the cpeu chan-nel i!y companion ordered the pointer to go and get it, and the obedient dog dashed out upon the ice rill he got within i couple of vards or so of the dead bird, wiien ho halted, for the ice had begun to rack under him. Then he looked bac at iaw jaaeter aad wagged.his Uil.and . un loosing aoout them tbelfieyes' rested on Two Bellies, and in him they found one not only willing but anxious "to beard the lion in bis den." Here was the very chance for which he longed to make "things even up," and besides who could tell but that in the general shuffle that would follow the new deal ho might land somewhere near the top? As he had nothing to lose and everything to gain, it was worth trying. A day or two before the election h appeared in the village with the sinews of war ii the 6hape of silver dollar (for a blanket Indian will have nothing to do with paper money), parasol, yellow paint, chewing gum, and other things dear to the red man's heart, besides a commission to count the ballot and bring the returns to the agency. . It would havo taken a keen ward worker to iiave told on tho morning of election how tho village would vote, History tolls us that when the ballot) were counted the leasers had carried their point by a bare majority; but it forgets to mention that, in order to do this, more Totes were counted than there wero voters to cast them. When tho old medicine man, by an hours strugglo with mental arithmetic and a final count by noses (the Indian method of balloting), had discovered this fact, he got out his Winchester and went around inquiring for Two Bellies. That wprthy, by this time, however, was far on the road to the agency, and, as a cow-boy who met him expressed it, "Ho had a move on himself like a man who wm riding for a record." Whether this means was fair or foul, the leasers carried the, day, and the larger part of the reservation was turned over to the cow men. A change was soon noticeable. Substantial buildings took tho place of dugouts; corrah were built at convenient points; surveyors ran the lines between tho ranges and wire fences followed close behind. Down at the agency Two Bellies wa? enjoying the reward for the part he had played, and, if his work could be judged by the reward, he had played it well. Right into the swim he landed, and in a short time was putting on the airs of a man who owned the pool itself. Discard-ing the tribal blanket and "gee string," he donned a major general's coat, sprits bottom pants and had his moccasins beaded to the heel. After the excitement that followed the election had subsided be began to lay his plans for the future. The first thing on the cards was to se-cure a squaw. After accomplishing this, being well satisfied with his bargain, he opened negotiations for another, and was soon recognized as a man of family and of affairs. He also enjoyed the favors and perquisites that formerly fell to the lot of Crazy Mule. As I saw him standing in front of the agency store one evening, with his hat tilted to the right angle, his cigar between his fingers, practicing spitting between his teeth, as became a politician of his stand-ing, I thought of the old medicine man out in his lonely village, shorn of what power and privileges it was possible for the agent to take from him, watching over and guarding alike his little corn patch and the sick children of his fol-lowers, to whom, iu spite of defeat, he was a chieftain still. And then I smiled as I remembered the words: "May be co, pretty soon, long time come, things tven .up." The; years rolled by, and in the course jf events another election was held. The party who had been in power so long in Washington city stepped down and out, and the friends of reform took up the reins of government. The old chiefs assumed their places, while the pets of the agents were sent to the rear. As I rodo along I wondered what changes I would find at the village, which I was approaching. If I expected any I was disappointed. The same curs, ap-parently, barked and snapped at mj horses heels; the squaws seemed busy with the same tasks, and under hisarbor tho old medicine man sat smoking his pipe with tho air of a proprietor and one who had earned his rest, and further-more had the advantage of knowing it.
