even whether it be land or water, or in
what respects it is effected by some con
ditions wholly different from our own
Is it anything more than a ereat - refrig
erator fbr the production of cold that
is, for the absorption of heat? If water
preponderates there, - then the cold
need not be so extreme a- we imagine:
and just as ihe equator is not every
where hotter than the tropics, just as
the Knsterti hemisphere is warmer by
ten Uesjrees ot north latitude than the
very much warmer than the Southern,
so even the Arctic circle may have the
benefit ol some gonial inilucr.ee. It has
at least half a year of continuous day.

be ingredients in the earth's atmosphere
too subtle for chemical analysis, the
spectioscojie may detect them in a
region where humidity nc longer em
harasses the question. Then what is
the aurora? Is it of earth or of heaven?
Is it meteoric? Is it cosmic? Does it
rever.l a universal medium? ' Is it a
magnetic phenomenon? At about the
seventieth decree of latitude the expedi
tion will reach the other siJe of the
mpgnetic po!e, and will have to steer
by rules the contrary of our wn, and
