There are us many vagaries in the

send their warm waters across the
wide Pacific and Atlantic? Other and
equally mysterious currents exist In j
well nigh tilt parts of the world. i

that flows into the Caribbean sea. the
ever flowing current to the eastward
around Cape Horn, the cold stream
flowing from the Icy regions of the

continual current running with a ve
locity of from four to five knots on
hour through the strait of Gibraltar
Into the Mediterranean sea. the swift
current running acroa the rocks and
shoals off the end of Bllllton Island,
which apparently starts from nowhere
and ends somewhere In the vicinity of

starting halfway up the China sea.
rims from two to three knots an hour
to the northeast and finally ends ab
