When it is frankly admitted by scientists of such standing as Doctor Wild, of St. Petersburg, that, "Without exact and satisfactory data meteorology cauuot devolop as a science, but will be, as heretofore, mainly a tumbling gn)undforvaue speculations aud dillotlanie mvea tigation." No apology need 1 of fered to the public for uudorUta jg this unique expedition, the necessity for which is self evident, leaving Die methods for its accomplishments alone to bo explained. How is it possible for us to travel teu miles above tho earth. That well known property of the atmos phere by which any gas lighter than itself rises to its limitations, aud when imprisoned in an envelope becomes that wonderful instrument of science, tho balloon, forms tho ' basis of our operations. Abide from its employment in military affairs, and its casual appearances iu the field of science, this great agent of discovery has remained essentially tho philosophical toy which it was when it first came from the bauds of the MontgolOers over a century ago. But it is now proposed in our up-to-date exenrsiou that tho baloon shall bo transformed into a modern ized aeronautic- cruiser, a. safe and useful agent of exploration, profit ing by all the discoveries which its hitherto desultory employment have developed, aud adding to it. the incomparably superior methods of mechanical construction used in the machino shops of to-day. What is this construction to bo? This is the interesting question to which tho projectors of this enter prise aro now for the first tiruo prepared to give a practical answer. Tho peculiarity of hydrogeu and other light gases by which thoir T.carrying-powor ancreasoa as th'u cuue oi meir uiameter, wuusi uie; weight cf the balloon which they lift increases only as the square of its diameter, affords us tho first principle for our guidance in the construction of this aurouautic monster. A liltlo calculation on the simplo principle stated poou shows us that the capacity of the groat envelope, which is to lift us through this vast ocean of air at win-so bot tom we live, must be 100,000 oubic feet. This volume of gas would bo capable, under the most favorable circumstances, of rising about 15 ft. above the earth, aud under the con dition which we shall imposo upon it. it will easily carrv us to the height of 10 milos at which our ex cursion bogius. To properly imprison tho gas wMeh is to accomplish thia is a matter of tho first importance The envolopo of the balloon will bo constructed of gold-beater's skin, the lightest and toughest sulutanco obtainable for tiie purpose. All of the rones controlling the balloon valve, rip cord etc., will bo operated instantaneously by oleotrjual deviues iu tho cabinet, so that our our aerial monstor will at all times be uuder perfect control. The next important problem Is tho construction of our air-tight steel car or cabin, which is to replaco the opou"baskot" atpro30tit in use.
