ing if conditions permit.
At Williams Bay. Wis., the special
apparatus for observing and photo
graphing the mwteoric shower is in
place on the roof of the Yerkes obser
vatory. Professor Barnard has spent a con
siderable time for a few rights search
ing for the Ephemerides of the mete
oric cloud. The position of this cloud
in our sky has been quite Inaccurately
determined. The main body should
now be entering the constellation Leo.
Though he has searched carefully with
the big Yerkes telescope, the profesor
has not yet discovered anything which
he could identify as the meteoric cloud.
In his search Prof. Barnard has dis
covered many new Nebulae and one
seen last night la exactly in the spot
where the meteors should be. This
signifies nothing, however, unless on
further observations the Nebulae Is
found to have moved.
The sky last night was totally ob
scured with clouds.

After the appearance of the constel

of meteors was fairly steady, though
It could hardly be called a shower. All
over the city Watchers were stationed
and from many strvt corners the Itln

Some of the earlier meteors were of
the magnitude of a plnnft of the first

the heavens the period of flight ap
p.?ared shorter and they lost their brll
llancy. Fortunately the atmosphere
was clear and few clouds Interrupted
