Astronomical Note

Tremendous Disturbance of the Sidereal System Predicted.

To the Editor of The Sun.—Sir: My observatory has recorded the presence of an eighth planet. It lies beyond Neptune. It is half sun and half planet. In one hundred years the effect of this giant strayling on the other seven planets will have been so strong that our sidereal system, as we know it to-day, will have passed through tremendous cataclysms. But it will survive.

The name of this new sun-planet is Nietzsche.
