The two great planets, Jupiter and Saturn, stood in con junction. In the following year a third planet joined the group, the planet Mars. This singular assemblage of bright stars takes place, so the astronomers teach, every 800 years. It was visible in the year 800. It was visible and here is the notable thing about it in the year one, in the year when Christ was born. Astrono mers are agreed, I understand, that Jupiter and Saturn met three times in the year 747 of the Roman era, a little before the Chris tian year one. In the Roman year 748 Mars joined the group. This was two years be fore the accepted date of the birth of Chr...

There is not probably in all Ireland another so picturesque and in teresting a city as old Galway. Its picturesquenesi is found largely in its location; bnt also to a great extent in the antiquity and quaintncss of its structures, its many and winsome crannies, corners, nooks and lanes, and the rich arches, gables and heraldic devices of its moldy buildings. But its deepest interest to the appreciative observer lies in the dis tinct and colorful character of its people and those of its environs, classes among whom are so peculiar that novelist or painter could here find as rare studies for pen or pencil as could be anywhere discov ered within the most un...

Dr. Holland on the Whirlwind of Bible Times and What It Was Like. OTHER SEEMOXS IX A SIMILAR VEIN The recent disaster in Diamond and "Wood streets furnished an interesting text for several sermons yesterday. Among them cone was more instructive than the one preached at the Bellefield Presbyterian 'Church last evening by Rev. Dr. W. J. Holland, whose text was: "Behold the whirlwind of the Lord; even his fury is gone forth, a sweeping tempest," from Jeremiah xxx, 23. On this subject he discoursed, in substance, as follows: In the scriptures of the Old Testament mo whirlwind is frequently mentioned as a mes senger of violent and sweepinc destruction. Palestine is subject to fiorce Binds, sweepins from the east and southeast, and charced with igrcat power of destruction. The meteoric con "ditions are such as to favor cjeatly ...

PBODCCE MARKETS DEMORALIZED Office of thk Pittsburg DispATcn, ) Saturday, January 12, 18S9. It will be seen by reference to the domes tic market column, that the new year hat not, thus for, yielded bountiful harvests to produce commission merchants, or dealers in jrrain and bay. Representatives of both lines of trade in general, talk gloomily of the situation. The fact that winter is half gone, without the appearance of any genuine, old fashioned cold weather, has upset many of the best laid plans. The season has been an extraordinarily pro pitious one for consumers. It is many a loug year since household stuff, in general, could be laid in at such low figures at this time of the year.
