SHOWERS OF METEORS.
The Pyrotechnics of the Heavens.
A BRILLIANT DISPHY
Witnessed at Bordeaux in 1885 The Rain of
Falling Stars in 1883 and 1872
A Splendid Spectacle,
Written for ttie Baltimore American.
As' the season is approaching at which we
may expect the annual meteoric displays, I am
reminded of the brillant spectacle which I had
the pleasure of witnessing at Bordeaux, ou the
night of the 27th of November, 1883. The phe
nomenon commenced at sunset, and the number
of meteors visible in the northeast portions of
the heavens continued rapidly increasingoon
they became so numerous that I had great diffi
culty in counting them. At times darting in
bunches from the same point in the heavens,
they formed veritable geibes of rockets. The
phenomenon attained its maximum of splendor
about 6.30 or 7 p. m. From that time the num
ber of shooting aud falling stars progressively
diminished, and when at 10.30 the moon rose,
drowning the lesser stars in her flood of light,
the shooting stars' were already much less nu
merous, aud the phenomenon probably ceased
soon afterwards. The observations taken in
Bordeaux were repeated in different parts of
England, in Germany, and large parts of .South
western France ; on the borders of Provence, in
Italy, in Greece, and even in Persia ; in short,
in all countries favored with a clear sky. Every
where the phenomenon exhibited the same char
acteristics, remarkable for the large proportion
of exceedingly brilliant stars, nearly all white,
and leaving behind them a long, orange trail,
winch lasted several seconds, the apparent ve-
locitv of the meteors was slight, and their tra
jectory, at times, short ; some seemed scarcely
All these stirs seemed to diverge from a point
in the heavens situated in the triangle formed
by the constellations of Perseus, Andromeda
and Cassiopcea. They darted in bunches or ger
bes, as if a handful of meteoric stones had at
that moment been flung into our atmosphere.
They were not isolated, like the shooting stars
one may see almost any moonless night falling
at the rate of three or lour per hour.
Showers of falling stars are not a very rare
phenomenon. There is on record a meteoric
rain, observed in America by Humbolt and Bon
pland, the moming of the 12th November, 1799.
The rain lasted four hours, during which time
thousands of stars started from the constella
tion of Leo, shooting towards the south:
TIIS KAIN" Or FALLING STARS
of November 12-13, 1833, is till present in the
recollectious of someol us, and certainly no one
has forgotten the remarkable abundance of these
meteors during the nights of the 12th a id 13th
of November of the years comprised between
1865 and 1869. The almost unexpected shower
of the 27tii November, 1872, seems an incident
of but a few months back, so vivid are the re
collections which we preserve of that grand y
awful display. It was to this shower t'-iat al
most every one involuntarily compared the phe
nomenon which we witnessed at Borleaux
The falling stars of November 27, 1872, were
observed in the greater part of Southern France
numeaiatety alter nigutt.iu. At lioraeaux, says
M. Lespi&ult, the display had already commeuc
ed before night. Between 6 and p. m. it was
m its height of splendor. The hky beinj very
clear, even the faintest meteors were t sible ;
their number was estimated at one hunded per
minute. Almost all the stirs were whit -, bril
liant and dull. Man v of them left trai s which
remained distinguishable for a consid Table
length of time. A large number of the meteors
were simultaneous, and the origin of their sev
eral trajectories formed a polygon whose cen
tral point was constantly very uear Gamma of
Andromeda. Avignon, M. Giraud, and the stu
dents of the Normal School counted 162 shoot
ing stars in five minutes. At Moncalieri (Tu
rin) the Rev. Father Denzs and three of his
assistants counted 33,400 in six hours and a
half from 6 p. m. to 12.30. At Naples, M. A.
de Gasparis estimated the number of meteors
to be, at least, two per second. Ilerr Heiss, at
Munster, placed the hourly number at 2,500. In
England, Germany and Norway the phenomena
exhibited the same intensity and the same gen
eral features. All observers agree in placing
the radiant point towards Gamma of Androme
da, at 23 right ascension, and 42 north decli
nation. The display of 1872 was similar, then,
in all respects to that of 1885.
would be, however, only amusing phenomena,
if we were not able today, thanks to the labors
of Sig. Schparelli and M. Verrier, to assign a
cause to them and predict a return. In the first
place, the fact of the existence of a center of
radiation f the divergence of all the trajec
tories at starting from a determined point, a
divergence which is the result of a phenomenon
of perspective analogous to that which causes
parallel lines of trees to start from the same
point of view proves that the ensemble of the
corpuscules which, in consequence of their ig
nition in our atmosphere, appear in the form of
shooting stars, forms in space a flight of anima
ted bodies of equal and parallel velocity. They
constitute, then, an ensemble, and, like all
celestial bodies, must neeessarilv move around
the son in an elliptical or parabilieal orbit, af-
ter the manner of planets or comets.
When, m its annual revolution around the
sun, the earth encounters one of these flights
when it finds itself in the midst of the corpus
cules which come; s ; it. the direction whence
these bodies seem to come, the direction of the
radiant point, results from the combination of
the earth's own velocity of the meteors.
The direction aud rate of the earth's yelocity
are unknown; the rate, at least, of that of the
meUcre U aasy to calculate. Therefore, by a
simple geometrical process, may be ascertained
the real direction which the bodies constituting
the flight follow through space, the direction of
the tangent at the point at which the earth in
tersects the orbit, f to this primary fact we
are enabled to add a cognizance of the exact
velocity of these bodies, or a cognizance of the
duration of their revolution, we have all the
data requisite for calculating the elements of the
orbit which the ensemble of corpuscules de
scribes around the sun.
. x MANY FLIGHTS
have a well-known periodicity. That of the one
of the lZSh and 13th of November, observe! in
1766, 1799. 1833 and 1867, is 33J years. Signor
Schiaparelli has, therefore, been enabled to cal
culate its orbit, which is identical with that of
the periodical comet of Tempel (1866). This
coincidence, and thecertain relation of the
shooting stars of the 10th and 11th of August
(St- Lawrence's Tears, as they are called in
France) with the comet of 1862, compel the ad
mission today that flights of shooting stars are
all in relation with comets: that they form part
of these comets, or are, at the very least, inime-
ciately dependent Ujjon their movements.
.When, then-fore, the earth, in its annual
! movement, intersects the orbit of a comet, o;-
comes into the Immediate Vieiuity of one of
these orbits, a shower of shooting stirs may be
Fuuowing precisely these principles. Herr
Galle, director of the Observatory of Breslau,
having remarked that in November, 1872,
Biela's comet would pass close to the earth,
predicted, without hesitation, that a rain of
shooting stars would occur at that period. We
have seen that the prediction was completely
verified. As soon as the shooting stars of 1872
made their appearance in the heavens, Prof.
Klihkerfues telegraphed to Madras recommend
ing that search be instituted for a comet in the
portion of the heavens opposite to that from
which the meteors penetrated our atmosphere.
Mr. Payson actually discovered in that region
a comet with a rapid movement, which, in all
probability, was one of the two fragments of
Now, since the observations of 1885 have
demonstrated that the shooting stars of No
vember 27, appearing at the date predicted by
Prof. Zenker and M. R. Copeland, had a period
of thirteen year3, equal to two and a halt times
the duration of the revolution of Biela's comet
(six years and a half), there can be no longer
any doubt as to the connection of this singular
comet with the magnificent phenomenon of
which wc were spectators on the 27th of No
vember last- As to the disasters which might
result from a collision of the earth with a com-
etarj mass, we have seen of what they consist:

The Great Storm.
SABINE PASS, TEXAS. IS WASHED OUT OF
EXISTENCE BY AN OVERFLOW OF SABINE
KIVER SIXTY-FIVE LIVES LOST THE
DAMAGE TO CROPS, CATTLE, HOUSES,
ETC., ESTIMATED AT S200.000.
New Orleans, Oct. 14. The town
of Sabine P;iss was totally destroyed by
the overflowing of the Sabine river last
night. It is known that 65 lives were
lost. Last night during the overflow a
hotel containing fifteen or twenty per
sons was swept out into the bay, and
all the occupants were drowned. The
captain of a schooner from there today
says that not a house is left in the
whole country, and that every living
being there was drowned.
A party of men came from Beau
mont this evening on the train with
the intention of joining the people o
Orange and going down to Sabine Pas
with a relief boat.
New Orleans, Oct. 14. A special
from Port E ides to the Times Demo
crat says: "The total extent of damage
occasioned by the late storm is not
known, but it has been wides pread from
the jetties to Pointe a la Hacha. The
wind had been fresh Saturday night,
and was blowing hard all day Sunday,
and on Monday increased to a hurri
cane. There were feet of water in
Port Eades, and the east side of the
jetties. Here is situated a great con
crete wall extending from the inne;
reef to the end of the works, which is
intended to prevent the waves of the
gulf from washing sand in the chan
nel. It is nearly parallel to and dis
tant about 200 yards from the jetties
proper. Immense blocks of concrete,
had been moulded in boxes measured
in solid contents 8 feet by 15 feet and
weighed many tons apiece. A house
had also been 4milt where the cement
was stored for the concrete blocks.
Some idea of the terriffic force of the
gale and the pounding of the sea can
be arrived at when it is known that
these heavy blocks were lifted out
oi position and swallowed up under
the sea. Others were stood upon end,
and others twisted out of place, caus
ing considerable damage. The bulk
head that is being built between this
wall and the jetties proper was en
tirely submerged, and tne waters rolled
over it from end to end. The building
was swept away, not a vestige having
been left to mark the spot where it
stood. The pank road that served Port
Eades as a public street, floated off and
became debris among the white caps.
The water continued to rise Monday,
and reached the first floor of several
houses. This created general alarm
and many persons left their homes,
taking refuge in the hotel at Eadesport.
The narrow neGk of land between the
bank and sea marsh, bordering the
bays and guTf, was completely under
water, whichKin some places was waist
: deep. At 10 o clock Monday night

been an almost total destruction of crops
of all kinds from Pointed la Hacha to
Port Eades on the east .side of the river.
The schooner J. & J. lumber laden,
was driven on the levee 35 miles below
the city, and left high stid dry. Two
unknown luggers sharfd the same fate.
What few oranges then; were on the
trees were blown off. The damage
between Pointe a la Hacha and Port
Ettdes, in rice, gardens, cattle horses,
poultry, houses, etc., is estimated at
$200,000. No loss of life is reported.
Beaumont, Texas, Oct. 15. The
first reports of the great disaster at Sa
bine Pass were not exaggerated, in tact
the death roll now reaches 90 souls.
Relief p.irties that went down as near
Sabine as possible on the Sabine and
E:ist Texas Railroad, are there yet
succoring the destitute and sick. The
train could not get within 12 miles of
the town, but over a dozen tow boats
have been sent there, and are at work
saving life and property. There is con
siderate backwater yet at Sabine hem
med in and held there by the railroad
embankment. The most intense ex
citement has prevailed here since the
first news of the fearful catastrophe.
The people have neither eaten nor slept
and crowds have surrounded the wharv
es and depot waiting for a return of
the train or boat from the devastated
town. The steamer Lamar left Orange
Wednesday night at 10 o'clock with the
relief committee on board. When she
would return no one knew but a con
stant watch was kept at Orange and
here. At midnight last night she ar
rived here. People hurried to hear the
the news and receive the sick and
destitute. The relief committee aboard
the Lamar consisted of 20 citizens
from Beaumont and 40 from Orange.
They traveled up the Neches river be
tween 4 p. m. and midnight, which was
an extraordinary trip, fraught with fear
ful danger. Twenty-five of the com
mittee were left ttt S ibine Pass to make
attempts to recover some of the bodies,
many of which were reported to have
washed dozens of miles over into Lou
isiana. The mem bers of the relief com
mittee who returned were so worn Out
and overcome by the horrible devasta
tion thev witnessed that it was next to
impossible to get a coherent story from
them, and as each of the refugees was
surrounded by about 100 people, it was
equally impossible to get detailed ac
counts from any one of them. The
exact extent of the storm swept district
is yet unknown. From reports brought
by the committee it is certain that the
flooded district is many times larger than
it first supposed. The gulf seems to
have moved-over the laud for miles in
one high unbroken wall of water. The
committee report 101 persons missing,

Caninity Versus Ovinity.
Cor. of the News and Observer.
Tarboro, X. C, Oct
The grand exalted dirinity
Of the statesmen is caninity. ;
Now, let us review the trinity
Canines, statesmen and ovinity.
While the political chaldron is seeth
ing, bubling, sizzling; while nominee
statesmen are being called out on the
stock law, prohibition and what not,
no one seems to have a soul to do or
dare aught against the unserried pha
lanx of dogs.
Politicians may come and go, but the
dogs go on forever. The volume of
yelping, suarlii.g, mangy, gaunt and
hungry, egg sucking, sheep slaughter
ing, hydrophobic curs, bench-legged
fices and mongrels, continues to swell
something like a thousand a minute.
Yes, 1010 a minute, this worthless
horde is spewed out, to reap where they
have not sown; to devour and devastate
the flocks and barn yards and make
life a burden in this fair land. No
politician dare stem the tide. No par
ty has the temerity to insert an anti
canine plank in its platform. How
long, O! canine, wilt thou continue to
abuse our patience? Will it be next
we.k or next year, or will it be when
the seed of sheep has become extinct?
Will it be when no wool will remain to
warm us in winter, no mutton to afford
gastric delights? Will it be after de
stroying the sheep and, like Alexander
seeking new worlds to conqusr, they
have turned upon every living creat
ure, except man, and wiped all from
the face of the earth ?
Before this dire calamity has super
vened would it not be well to cry a
In ihe great kindness of heart of
this writer and in his vast area of amia
bility he before this proposed to solve
the problem. The proposition was to

upon failure should be death to the

philosophers who believe that all good

their early puppy hood, invariably by

who would help pass such a law. Leav

ent that, his dogs being all good, 'twas
the other fellow's he was after, and the
motive was to preserve that especial
This racket would work charmingly
and impart to the politician a high
place on earth and canonization after
death, with pedestal and all it implies.
So much of a cosmopolitan and free
lance by nature and acquirements, this
writer is wedded to no especial scheme,
so the devoutly-wished consummation
be attained, and inserts another re
ceipt. The writer of a letter to the New
York Sun says: UI have read much
about sheep killing. I suggest a very
simple remefly. My country is a great
sheep country. Every dog in the coun
try from the size of a spitz dog, except
shepherd's dogs and hunting dogs ac
companied by their masters, are by law
compelled to carry a club fastened
by a string around their necks. A dog
so provided is as good watch dog but
in hunting for sheep he cannot run
fast enough to catch them, nor can he
jump any fence. All dogs without a
club are shot by anv officer, and the
owner, when found, is fined. Such an
ordinance or law, if enforced, will pre
vent sheep-killing by dogs."
'Twould be preferable that the club
be placed with fatal violence upon the
dog's head instead of attached to the
neck, but it is not seemly for a beggar
to be a chooser.
These hints are thrown out to the
legislator of the near future. Let us
see how many statesmen in the next
legislature will join the noble and im
mortal band of the last who voted to
tax dogs, looking to the advancement
of sheep husbandry.
Let us revise the roll and emblazon
on our banner ''Maximazation of sheep
and minimization of dogs."
Let sheep lovers lubricate their hands
with saliva and take a new hold.

of mortification as a Knight of Labor,

White workingmen ponder, reason
this matter over, whether you belong

to your families. If you hare any
daughters, look twice, and do not let
such fanaticism enter your household.
Just think of the decision of the high

less of his color or previous condition.

Atlanta, Ga., June 5.1886
In 1878 there came on my hand what
was thought to be a carbuncle, whi h ran
its course several months, broke and final h
healed. The next spiing knots or knodm,
came on my arms, which were thought to
be rheumatic, and I took irallons of medi
cine from the best physicians in Cuthbert,
Ga., where I thru resided.
About this time my left limb below the
knee commenced swelling at a fearful rate,
and finally came to a head anUrokc. Both
arms were sore, and I could hardly bear my
weight standinir. and hardly know how I
managed to live through it all. About this
time we moved from Cmhburt to At'anf.
I legan to despair of ever getting well; t he
sore n my limb was a regular eating ulcer,
now aliout three inches in length, two im li
es width, seeming to le down to the lionr,
and discharging about a cup'u of put
(matter) a day, my arms t-till running, my
sleep disturbed, and I sometimes thought 1,
would lose my renaofi.
A friend recommended B. B. B. I com
menced its use. und I saw an improvement j
from the Very first. I have taken 8 or 9 bot- ;
ties, and my arms arc entirely well, and tht
large ulcer on my limb lias healed. 1 now
feel Ince a new prison, thanks to such a
nobla remedy, B.B.B
