' ' As to the dangers involved in such a liight, Mr. Louoheed suggests the following scheme for minimizing them: ''Another way of eliminating the necessity for a non-stop flight might be found in the provision of a series of boat patrols, which might serve its means of restarting the aeroplane. If thirty-four boats, probably on the order of the common lightships used along rough and stormy coasts, were strung out along the course, the distance from each of these to the next, about rift v miles, would enable one or another in the av.a'or to Keep t all the wav. which would he of great advantage in that it would enable him to keep to a course that would be hard to deter mine by means of a compass which though it shows the different direc tions, does not constitute a means of i I nvigorating N utritious E f fervescent C arbonatcd T rue Flavor A Iways R efreshing allowing for such lateral drift as might easily take place through an angular movement of the mass of the atmos phere quite unknown to the aeroplane pilot, who feels no wind but that due to the progress of his machine through the air."

Cnwilling to dethrone Kverest, Dr. Longstair, it would appear, took the lowest possible value his observations permitted, and, as he is a most trust worthy authority where mountain heights are concerned, it is possible that this peak, which he has named Teram Kangri. will shortly take its place in geographies nd atlases as the highest known mountain on the globe.

Its temperature is 74 degrees; that of the ocean on either side not above 50 degree-, and its edges are marked by long lines of flotsam and jetsam drift wood, canes, palm leaves, all sorts of tropical debris. As the Gnlf Stream runs on its way past Cape Ilatteras it widens from thirty-seven to seventy-eight miles and grows much shallower. Before it reaches our latitudes it has become a mere shallow sheet, overlying the colder strata below, till, gaining the banks of Newfoundland, you can notice in calm weather stripes of green water invad ing the blue of the great tropical cur rent. Why is the Gulf Stream blue and the more southern ocean green? Th answer is that it has 1 een proved that the bhteness of sea water is in con stant ratio to its saltiness. In the tropics the tremendous evaporation in-du.-eii bv- the blazing sun causes the water to be much more salt than it is in higher latitudes. For about thirty degrees hoth north and south of the equator the waters of the world's -eans are of tin exquisite azure. Be yond these latitudes the blue fades and changes to reen. and in the Ar'-tic and Anan-tic oceans the greens are a1- Tiiast is T'.v-i.l n the tron'.cal bines. ! onometrica The extraordinary bhieness of the Mediterranean has two causes. One is that very few large rivers of fresh water run into the sea; the second, that the Mediterranean, is - practically land locked, and, being exposed to a power ful sun. evaporation is great. By actual test, the waters of the Mediterranean :ire heavier at. 1 more salt than tha.se of the Atlantic. But blue av.d green are not the only eoiors db.erv.-d in the world's seas and oceans. l .lannarv. l!ti. a river of sionaily seen in the Ked Sea, and which has given that sea its name, has a similar cause. The water becomes lull of microscopic algae tiny weed. China's Yellow Sea is usually sup posed to owe its origin to the flood of muddy water which its great river pours into it. But here, again, modern science has proved that living organ isms are responsible. Occasionally, and for some cause yet ! undiscovered, great areas of the ocean i turn milk white.

If the latent imperial decree is car ried out as expected, China will have a vastly improved coinage system, with coins comparing with the American dollar, half, quarter, dime, nickel and cent, and additional cins worth ap proximately 2 cents, o mills and 1 mill. The standard will be silver and the unit of the national currency will be the "yuan," which corresponds to the American dollar, its value being sl.uOs. October Popular Mechanics.
