J HE POLAR KALLOON PROJECT.
romiitamlcr Clu n- NCcsu Fully Ex
Commander Cheyne's project of reaching
the poln by means of a hnlloon was,
when first proposed, regarded as very
chimerical, but has of late been

" One cf the most impoit.iut piemihes
in this undei taking," ho aajs, "is the
iact that in eighty-one degrees, forty-seven
miuutis north latitude, which, is
our intended winter tpi;irtjrs, lie& n
bed of on the surface, and.
according to the report of Sir George
Nares, 250 yards long by twenty-rive
feet in width, of unknown depth, an
1 supply of well-nigh smokeless
coal, equal to the best "Welch. Hern we
have discovered what is essential to the
project, a source of heat. On tin's coal
bed will be built a portable wooden
lions-" for olheers and men and here the
gas wi.l be generated. Tt is my intention
to generate two kinds of giis, Tnre
hydrogen and hydrogen or
common coal gas. This combination of
gas will be more sticky, and thus will
not so easily permeate the envelope of a
balloon, and wib: be of greater 1 fting
power than common coal gas alone. The
larger the balloon the safer it will be.
AVe shall have three of good dimensions,
each capable of carrying two tons in
weight. Each will be fully equipped for
sepai ate traveling, in case of separation,
which, however, judging from the results
of my experiments with balloons, I do
no anticipate. Each will carry a light
boat, a sledge, a pack of Esquimaux
dogs, and three persons, with the necessary
stores, men and dogs being, provisioned
for five days. If a portion of the
gas escapes from the baloons wo shall
refill by using the gas in one balloon and
then deserting it. The balloons will be
kept at an average elevation of 500 feet
by trail ropes, the mountains being easily
cleared by throwing out a little ballast.
This traii rope will be very important.
If the sun becomes a little warmer than
usual the gas will, of course, expand,
aud tho balloon bo inclined to rise under
such expansion, but directly this rising
takes place tho rope is lifted off the ice
and acts as a counterbalance. Again, in
the case of a cloud passing between the
sun and the balloon, the gas will condense,
and tho baloon be inclined to descend,
but in doing so more of the ropo
is deyiosited on the ioe and this again
counterbalances. Another advantage of
the trail rope is to keep the same portion
of the balloon always facing the north ;
in fact, it will in a great measure serve
as a means of control. It will enable
gelatin plate photographs and astronomical
observations to be taken with accuracy
and ease. Oarefnl observations of
the Arctic currents of air have convinced
mo that when certain well-known indications
prevail in these latitudes, the
wind may be relied upon to blow for
two days or more in one direction. The
distance to tho polo from the point of
departure will be only 4(50 miles, and
this, I estimate, can be easily accomplished
iu twenty -four hours. "We expect
to return from the polo either by balloon
(with a favorable wind) or else by
sledge, making our way back to St. Patrick's
Bay, or possibly to some part of
tlie liussan coast, should it ivppoar better
to take that course."

and healthy parentage suffered from

weakness and despondency. By practicing
regularly deep and prolonged
breathing he was reloaved of his lung

measurement of bin chest.
Scenery and Rumps.
In Nevada two rival coaches started
out on parallel roads each four team on a
gallop. A New Yorker, being tho only
passenger in one coach, took a seat
with the driver; Ho endured the first
five miles very well, as tho road was
pretty smooth, but he finally carelessly

"Oh, no! They nre used to it. I
haven't begun to swing 'em yet," waa
"If you were going a little slower, I
could enjoy the scenery much better."
" Y s, I s'pose so ; but this line isn't
run on the scenery principle. "
That ended the conversation until the
horses turned a corner, and the stogo
rode around it on two wheels. Then tho
Now Yorker remarked :
