Wednesday night, for the second time, a watch was kept at the Observatory for the expected shower of Leonids, but only seventy-six meteors were counted, of which forty-three were Leonids, that is, had a path radiating from Leo. A watch was kept last night and will probably be kept tonight for the fourth and last time. However, it is hardly expected that there will be a shower, as the orbit of the Leonids is too far from the earth--about one and three quarters million miles. Moreover, the number of Leonids seen has decreased since 1898; less were counted last year than then, and less this year than last.
No Shower of Leonids.
