    COMET MOREHOUSE.—The following set of elements and an ephemeris for comet 1908c appear in No. 138 of the Lick Observatory Bulletins. They have been computed by Messrs. Einarsson and Meyer, of the Berkeley Astronomical Department, from observations made at the Yerkes and Lick observatories, and subsequent observations show a satisfactory agreement between the observed and calculated positions. It will be noted that, according to these elements, perihelion will not take place until January 5, whilst the computed increase in brightness is not so rapid as given previously.
