But jio; his face wore the strenuous, serious, look to be seen on every billiard player's fttcv preparatory to making a shot, The player afterwards confessed that the in- cident was a case of pure lapse of mem- ory. WATCHING THE COMET.—A large num- ber of Rhos people had a glimpse of Hal- ley's Comet on Monday evening. The famous comet was to be seen setting in the South West, and appeared as aneb- ulous haze, with a nucleus of the bright- ness of a second or third magnitude star. The members of the Young Liberal League were the first to sight the wand- erer, one of the members having set him- self the task of watching for it with a glass. The young astronomer sighted the comet on Saturday night, and having made known his discovery to the other members, the back windows of the club room, facing west, were converted into observatories. Owing to the haze and other inconveniences of these latitudes, the sight was by no means a thrilling one.
