SIGNALING TO MARS. The Wfltculty of Doing So by-Means of Light The very largest city that this earth has ever known would be altogether too small to be visible to a being dwelling on the planet Mars, even if that being were endeavoring to see It with a telescope as powerful as the greatest and most perfect instrument in any observatory on this globe. The Best Advertising Mediums on the Missouri Slope «E?8 If the -whole extent of Lake Superior was covered with petroleum and if that petroleum was set on fire, then, I think, we may admit that an Inhabitant of Mars who was furnished with a tele­ scope as good as that which Percival Lowell uses at Flagstaff might be able to see that something had happened. But we must not suppose that the mighty conflagration would appear to the Martian as a very conspicuous ob­ ject. It would, rather, be a very small feature, but still'I think it would not be beyond the reach of a practiced ob­ server in that planet. 7JN ad inserted in our columns is re...
