being eklabll-hcd at Ihe northern
terminus of the don-sled road, (on bal
loons should bo built at such depot.
Eicli hhould havo Iho capacity lo carry
one-mile length ol quarter-inch

south, at Iho geullo rate of ten mile
pel hour, iho Ion balloons, each carry
ing one mile of cable, should bo per
mitted lo drift due north, paying out
ihecible In succession from the rear
balloon first. As each balloon has
pnld out its mile of cable, it should
dampou Are, descend lo the ice, and
anchor ihe cable to the ice by moans
of a piece of cable ten loet long. At
me ena oi an uour or two alter the
start, Ihe whole ten miles will be paid
out and ibe balloons will start in line
at wldo intervals. Each balloon re
taining its bold on the cable by means
of snap-hooks or open books, may
then be worked by hand back to ibe
depot In a calm, or even against a mod
erate wind; or awaiting a favorable
wind, may drill bo;k; reload with ca
ble, and In liko mauner lay another
ten miles; establish suitable depots
and telegraph facilities through ihe ca
ble; and thus on until Ibe Ice-Held is
pasaed or the pole or open sea is
reached. A crank pulley, lour feet iu

over which puuey me cable should
