A NEW ROADWAY TO THE
A NEW ROADWAY TO THE POLE.
For many centuries tbo belief
has obtained that somewhere in the
heart of the frozon regions of tho
north thero exists a sca lane con
necting tho waters of tho North
l'acifio and tho Korth Atlantic
The earliest attempt to discover
this Northwest passago dates from
tho middlo of the sixteenth century,
mid from Hint period until now nu
merous expeditions have been fitt
ed out, siiprdiod with everything
the bounty orgovcinment could
bestow, and guided by marvelous
intelligonco, to solve the frozen
riddlo, to result only in disappoint
mom, desolation, nod death. AnJ
not satisfied wiih tho hecatombs
plrcndy offered up to tho mystery
of Polar navigation, thrco separate
expeditions aro now under way, or
are soon to set out, again to attempt
tho hat-irdoua experiment. A very
cunos theory has recently boon
pot forth by an eminent navigator,
which leads many Bciontiflo men.
who have fciven it consideration,
to hopo, if not to behovo. that tho
question of centuries has at last
Tho theory is embodied in an
address by Captain Silas Bent, of
tho American navy, nt a re-cnt
meeting of tho Si. I.ouis Historical
Society a thoory to which ho has
given the name of '-Tho Thermo
metry Gateway to tho role." Tho
publication af this thoory, which
be tells us in Hid result 01 thirty
years' study and exploration, lias
an eminently bumnno purpose, and
is of no lens importance than tho
actual saving of human life, by
preventing further sacrifice in tho
perilous allcirpis to find this gate
way in tho manlier so ofioti tried.
The thcoiy is bated on tho im
mutable law of nature, that water
will seek its equilibrium, that thero
ill a circulation in tho ocean, and
that every oceanic current has a
t-orresronding counter current.
Tho two great currents of thcocotin,
the Gulf Stream of the Atlantic,
and its tollo.iguu of tho l'ucilic, tho
KuroSiwo both rivers in tho
ouer.ii, hastening northward with
their heated waters fiom the cqua
ti rial bolt of fire, with sufficient
bout and force, it:s said; ''lo raise
mountains of iron from zero to tho
melting point, and to keep in flow
irom tli cm a molten stream of nut
al, greater in volume than tho wa
ters daily discharged from the Mis
eissippi liver,'' liny carvo their
way through tho polar leo by tlie
energy ol tho sun's heat, to their
confluence at iho l'olo, making
thither a" permanent, navigable
water highway for seaman. Tho
iiulf h'trrnm ha always been nn inter
citing physical injsu-ry, but that it
hud lor iu mission to create a north
went passage Inn only been hinU'd at
before. It is duo to the heat of tho
Ciulf t-trcinn that tho harbor of Ilam
merfesl iu Norwii", 73 decrees north,
is ever free from ice in the severest
winters, nnd that the coast of south
western Europe lins its ertuablo cli
matu. Tho Jvuri Siwo, of the I'aeitic,
is almost identical in dimensions,
volume and velocity. Their currents
tend in the same direction. The e tr
ee to!' their hcuLed waters upon the
climates of the adjacent countries is
the same. From tho archives of the
Hoynl Society of London it appears
thnl, in lsfl.r, a lutch whaler sailed in
a perfectly free nnd open sea to within
one degree of tho pole, und about tho
same period another had gone two
degrees beyond it, which was made
possible by following accidentally tho
very pathway science now points out
as affording the only gateway to the
pole. It in also insisted that tho Gulf
Ktream and the Kuri-Siwo are the
I'Hme and only cause of the open sea
about the pole, with iltt temperature,
as repeated expiditiens have discover
ed, so much above that duo to the lati
tude; that tho only practical'! avenues
by which ships can reach that open
ea, and thence to the polo, is by fol
lowing the warm waters of.tlicso
streams into that sea, cud that to find
and follow these streams the water
thermometer is the only guklo.
Such is the new theory, and should
it prove to be of any practical impor
tance, it will be a discovery of great
Commercial value. It will shorten
the lime, by water, between New York
and San Fruncisco sixty days; New
York to Canton ninety days; Now
York to Japan one hundred day a.
tfSu. A philanthropio naturalist,
Mr. lligford Burr," who rosidos in
it beautiful park at Atdormaslon,
England, offers bis grounds as an
usylum to English snakos, and re
quests people to send him snakes'
eggs and live snakos in any quanti
tity. He says that a snake, hunting
lor 'froSs along tho margin of a still
pond in the hot, noonday sun, is
one of the most interesting sights
that naturalist can wilnoss.
Winter Clothing for Children.
Terhaps no domeslio topic is of
mora impmlnnco than the clothing
of our children during thn inclem
ent season. This season, in our lat
itude, should be considered as last,
ing from November to June, ns du
ring all this tinio thero are either
frcqnont changes or intense cold,
which render precaution necessary,
in order to guard against common
colds nnd moro serious throat and
Upon this topio there is either
much ignorance or much careless
ness. With tho wealthier class too
much is sacrificed for show; with
the middle, thero is too much of a
desire to imitate Iho tich ; nnd Hea
ven help tho very poor to get rags
enough to keep off tho bitter cold
Children should bo so clothed
both day nnd night that they can
havo plenty of fresh air without
danger to health. This cannot bo
with neck and limbs exposed, or
without suitable provision lor tho
head and feet. Somo may be sn
constituted that they can cndifre
with impunity a greater amount of
exposure than other', nnd no douht
much may bo done by proper bath,
ing and by other means to render
tho chilli's condition moio hard',
One of th" means, wo apprehend, i
to givo a large amount of fresh air
while well cloll.od.
A hygienio manner of clothing
young children requires something
of n wardrobe. It should bo dura
ble, but need not ho showy, imr
very expressive. Perhaps no mure
so in tho long run; than if fewer ar
ticles were iu Use, at ono lime, as
the wear on each duplicated gar
ment would bo less. It involves a
greater first outlay, which in health
and comfort would soon bo amply
repaied. Remembering that if we
cannot do as wo would, wo must do
as wo can, perhaps it will ditto
harm if wo enumerate what, omit
ting minor art'clcs, wo would con
sider sufficient Winter outfit for a
country boy Irom seven to lourlicn

LIST OF GARMENTS.
Four flannel shirts; four pairs of
flannel tr knitted drawers; throe
flannel niuht dresses ; six pairs
woolen Micks ; three fbiniicl wuisls
or vests ; three pairs lull-cloth
pants ; three Marque or roundabout
i eo:it" ; ono overcoat; two pairs
hoots ; ore pair slippers ; two caps ;
thrco pairs u.:llciu ; two woul com
Tins may appear a formidable
list to tho farmer who has half a
uuzen boys to clothe, and perhaps
it is. 1 lot it should bo rciiii'inbcr
ed that in this ease there is ehis ad
vantage, that younger children can
often appropriate tho outgrown
clothing of older ones; and that
with care, with perhaps tho excep
tion of wais's and pants, this ou'.fit
would probably bo 6uflicicnt for
two Winters at least. And what
have wo enumerated th.l is not ab
solutely essential to health, c:nulort,
period cleanliness at all limes, ami
a creditable appearance in all pla
ces? Wo know that many farmers'
boys get along with hardly more
than a third of these articles of ap
parel nt one time. But wo ask if

I ask, as most country children
aro clad, if the' do not wear one
shirt, night and day, lor a week,
and ono pair of socks from Sunday
morning till Saturday night if
they do not wear one pair of pants
without washing for six months at
n time. I ask any physiologist if
this is is healthful; iisy any cleanly
parson if it is decent.
I ask, if they do not often sit for
hours with coid, damp feet, for lack
ofn chnngo; if thej' do not go
through wind, rain and snow, suff
ering for lack of underclothing?
nnd hero let mo suggest to mothers,
in damp woitther when children
ore liable to wet feet, to slip into
their pockets an oxtra pair of socks
beforo starting. on n long wn'k to
school, nnd insist on u chnngo after
I ask if boys aro not often kept
fsom church and soo.ioty from lack
of something fit to wear? Look
over tho liBt again and see if thoro
is anything superfluous?
In tho caso of infancs, woolen
night-caps nro indispensiblo, ns
thoir heads should not bo confined
beneath the bed cloths, und the
hair of the bond is so thin as to
afford little protection. Wo know
u grown person may suffer very
much from lack of protection to a
bald or thinly covered bend during
a cold nitfht, and why not a bnbe ?
Let ovorything bo plain and sub
tantinl, and with collars and hnnJ
kerchiofs, what boy noods more,
and what boy loss?
May the time couoo when more
can enjov so comtortable an outfit.
