VVnut oriviion lcde About the "or tli Pole. At present there lies within a few weeks ot us, and right between ns and inhabited continents, a circle 1,400 mi:es acioss, of which we know not. 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. What if it be found sufficiently haftit ab'e for the establishment of stations in which l!ic production and economy of heat will lie tho.only serious difficulty? Sc'.oiice is sanguibc, but it confesses it self to be hoping against hope as to the matterof its exjectaHoiis. An cnimal or ; two, seeds that, can stand ay cold, some of the lowest forms ot vegetable , life, and prehaps organisms in the sea, the possible Tevclaliptis of arl atmos phere completely clear of aqueous dis turbance, figure prominently in the catalogue of hope, as is suspected, there 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 becoming more and more, complex till the needle points finally to the centre of the earth. At the pole not only tlie compass, but even the sun, moon and stars will cease to be available fbr the usual purpose of observation; that is it anything should happen to tlie chronometers, for all will then depend on the preservation of Greenwich time. The forlorn hope told on tor the pole will have to mark its track very care fully it it would be sure of retracing its course back again. London Times.
