A C.lntslly Chateau.
Travelers In Switzerland who have
explored the Hal alluvial delta ot toe
valley of tho Rhode may icmember a
line old house about tliieo miles from
Villeiieuve, called the Chateau du Gran
de Clus. Ot a solid squaiu fuim, with
uigii pedKeit looi, lottj oiliuueys, spa
ciuus hall und perron, and pretty old
lushioiietl garden, with cypresses nud
fountain, it seems to have beeu trans
planted out ut Nuithcru Franco In the
lust century to this icgiuti of ugly little
stone liuu-es or mountain wood cd chalets.
Its story Is curious. It was built und
for a long time iuhauited by the self-
stvli'd "Due do Nnrniandle," ono ot
those niniieroiis claiuants to tin the r-al
Louis XVI 1 1., of whom, it seotns, we
lire neyei to hear the last. Tho "due,"
at all events, tonic great pains to Inform
himself of nil the pirtlcnlara which,

Tho New Comet.
This new cloud of costnical dust Is to
become in n few wciks one of the most
splendid meteors ever witnessed. It was
lirst discovered on April 17, 1874, by
M. Coggin, at Marseilles, small, but
having an inten-e nuclear condensation.
Its polar distance was about 20 degrees
15 minutes and 23 seconds, and It was
moving slowly towards the southwest.
It was lirst visible in the. eat ly morning,
but is now also visible In the evening.
It has been increasing in btiglitnes",
and by a sharp and somewhat practised
eye, can bo seen in tlie constellation
Cam -leopard In right ascension about
seven hours and declination about 70
degrees north. It Is now receding from

size nml brightness, hut as it is np
proacliing nearer to us Its brilliancy is
Tills luminous meteor, which is nam
ed Comet II. of 1874, Is wholly outside
of the earth's orbit, but, as It moves on
Its tlery Hack, will on the 3rd of Au
gust attain Its maximum beauty mid
brightness fur us. When lirst desciibed
by .M. Cojgi.iits brightness wasonly ono

tlie 1st ot July It will reach u much
higher degiee of luminosity, and on tho
3rd of August will have a nrlghtness of
243. These tlgures will afford the
