On the 13th day of last June, Mr.
Willie Monroe met with an accident by
which a large pine splinter penetrated
his hip. He went to a physician who
succeeded in extracting a portion of it.
Last Saturday, nearly two months after
the accident occurred, the rest of it was
removed. That taken out then is an

of the interval Mr. Monroe has walked
about with this chunk of lightwood
embedded in his flesh.

MONDAY. AUGUST 4, 1884. NOfl84
Ti Moon in August.
The August moon full3 on the 6th
(Wednesday) at 6 minutes after 6
o'clock in tbe evening, standard time.
She is in conjunction with Neptune on
the 13th. the day of her last quarter,
and with Saturn on the 16tb. She
makes a close'coDj unction with Venus
on the 17th at 37 minutes after 4 o'clock
in the afternoon, being then 23 minutes
north. The waning crescent and tbe
radiant morning star will make a love
ly celestial picture on the morning ot
the 17th, though they are invisible at
the time of nearest approach. On the
30tb, the day of her chauge, the moon
will b&-at her nearest approach to
Jupiter. The two-days-old moon will
be near Mercury on the evening ot the
22d, passing 32 minutes north, an'
event that snarp-signted observers
may behold. , She will pass Uranus on
the same evening, and close the circuit
by a very close conjunction with Mars,
being 10 minutes north on the 24th at
29 minutes after 10 o'clock in the morn
iog, but a3 the conjunction takes place
in daylight, it can only bo seen in the
It will be noticed that the moon pas
ses very near Venus on the 17th, Mer
cury on the 22d. and Mars on the 24th.
She will occult these three planets to
observers more favorably situated, or
to those whose position corresponds to
that of imaginary observers at the
earth's centre. This is calledthe moon's
geometric position. It means that if a
line be tlrawn from the centre ot the
earth through the moon it will reach
the planet and she will occult the three
planets on the dates specified. Obser
vers fortunate enough to have a position
where this imaginary line cuts the
earth's surface will see the moon, sail
ing through space, hide from view
Venus, Mercury, and Mars in turn, the
three occultatiousj taking place within
thellimitof seven days. The opportunity
would be a favorable one for an excur
sion to the centre of the earth.
The August term of this tribunal
convened at the Court House at 10
