White With Streaks.
Whne fllebergs often tire of great
siz4 they are much different fromn
icOherpgS, Rene Bache writes In the
Philadelphia Public Ledger. They are
ydtlw and dirty-looking in color,
while Icebergs are ordinarily a bril
liant white, with ultramarine streaks.
The streaks are pure lee, while the
white parts are largely solidifled snow.
Floebergs are formed in the hays
along the coast of Labrador, where
ice is blown shoreward and plied up,
shoot on sheet, during the winter.
When suminer comes the masses thus
formed are liable to float out to sea.
An iceberg is composed of fresh wa
ler, frozen. A floeberg Is frozen salt
The crew of the steamer Andros
voggin, of the United States coast
guard, experimented in blowing up
Icebergs with shells und i mines. but
both atlempts failed. The shells mere
ly uade white spots, and were shat
tered, while there was inothllug that
the in mies could be attaclnehd to to (10
daltamge. In addition slips could not
come close enough to file belrgs with

Figures compiled by the Now York
sanitary bureau of the department of
health and reported by Harry T. Gard
ner, secretary of the Automobile Den
ers' association, show a. great decrease
in the number of stables, and, natural
ly, in the numbers of horses occupying
them. In 1917 there were 108,036
horses. The most recent figures show
a shrinkage of 32,936 horses. Chicago,
too, shows a failing off in the reg
istration of horse-drawn vehicles un
der the wheel tax law. In the four
years ended May 1, this year, the num
ber of such vehicles decreased from
49,582 to 32,489. This diininution of
about 34 per cent copared with New
York's failing off'of about 30 per cent.
