I Venus becomes visible in the' western sky soon after sun downj and sets in the west about twoi hours after the sun. j Mercury today reaches its greatest separation from the sun. It is| much lower in the western sky than Venus, and is the first heavenly body to become visible in the West after Venus. For another week Mercury will be visible, j DALLAS. Tex.
