Two Antarctic expeditions that went out in 1901 returned in 1903, and news, was received from a third, the British party, whose ship, the Discovery, was frozen in at

McMurdo Bay, near Mounts Erebis and Terror, March 24, 1902. Polar Research, This was in east longitude 166:42, and south latitude 77:50. A

few weeks later a sledge party, led by Captain Scott, reached a spot in south latitude 82:17, whence they could see the mountains in latitude 83:30, and 14,000 feet high. A relief ship, the Morning, carried food and mail to the Discovery early in 1903. The supplies were transported over five miles of ice, as the former ship could not reach the other. An American sealer, the Terra Nova, was chartered by the British government to revisit the Discover year later. She sailed from Dundee in August, and from New Zealand in December, 1903.

The German expedition, led by Dr. Drygalski, and conveyed by the Gauss, skirted the coast of the Antarctic continent south of the Indian Ocean. It was frozen in February 22, 1902, in south latitude 66:30, east longitude 90, and -scaped February 8, 1903. The ship reached Kiel, Germany, in November, The most important geographical observations of this party was its discovery that a region hitherto supposed to be land, and called Wilkes Land, was open sea.

The Swedish expedition, under Nordenskjold, explored almost directly south of Cape Horn. It found that what was once regarded an island, and named after Louis Philippe, is part of the Antarctic continent. The ship of this party was crushed by ice on February 2, 1903, but quarters were found on an island, where the Argentine vessel Uruguay picked the survivors up, practically unharmed. They reached Buenos Ayres in November. All three expeditions collected a large amount of botanical, zoological, geological and other scientific information, A fourth expedition, under Captain Bruce, that left Scotland in 1902 for the regions southeast of Cape Horn, has not yet been heard from.

Little was accomplished in aeronautics. A full grown machine, built after the Langley model, and launched from the roof of a houseboat on the Potomac, was

tested in October and December. Both times it iailed to fly, but Aerial Navigation. sank to the bottom of the river. On the second occasion it broke

in two. Alexander Graham Bell has made promising experiments with a form of kite, whose dimensions can be multiplied almost indefinitely, with a corresponding gain in lifting power. One made up of sixty cells, and capable of lifting a man and an engine, was repeatedly sent up. Nobody went with it, though. The Lebaudy Brothers, in France, with an airship that is an improvement on the Santos Dumond model, made a new record for distance and speed, covering 46 miles at the rate of nearly 30 miles an hour. They were helped by the wind. In a calm the airship might not have travelled so fast.

Wilbur and Orville Wright, of Dayton, Ohio, in December experimented at Kitty Hawk, N. C., with apparatus like that previously used by Chanute and Lilienthal in soaring. It embodied the principles of the aeroplane, and was driven by a gasolene motor. They claim that a speed of eight miles an hour was sustained for three miles in the face of a twenty knot breeze, Wilbur Wright acted as navigator.

Steam turbines achieved new successes. These engines gave to two new passenger boats on the English Channel higher speeds than had been developed there before.

The first cruiser in the British navy which is to be propelled Turbine Engines. by turbines, the Amethyst, was launched in November. The Ger

man government has ordered two turbines, one of 10,000 horse power and the other of 5,000 horsepower, the former for a cruiser and the latter for a torpedo boat. A special board, appointed by the United States naval authorities, to study the question, has reported in favor of trying this type of motor on at least two styles of vessel. Both the Curtis and Parsons-Westinghouse engines were examined by the board. Another commission, selected by the Cunard Steamship Company and the British government in co-operation, is now considering the advisability of trying turbines on the two new ocean steamships which the Cunard Line talks of building. The example set by Mr. Yerkes in ordering huge turbines for the power stations of his electric railway system in London and vicinity has been followed by two

American corporations. It is understood that Pennsylvania road will install several Parsons-Westir:ghouse engines, each of about 7,500 horsepower, on Long Island, for its electric tunnel service, while the New-York Central, for its suburban service north of the metropolis will use Curtis turbines of the came capacity.

Dr. and Mrs. William H. Workman, of Worcester, Mass., made new records in mountain climbing in the Himalayas. Mrs. Work man reached an elevation of 22,568 feet,

which is much higher than any woman ever went before. The same Mountain

day her husband reached a height of 23,394 feet. The closest apClimbing.

proach to this achievement was made by Zurbriggen, the Swiss

guide, when he scaled Aconcagua, in the Andes. The latter mountain is about 23,080 feet high.

Dr. Frederick Cook attempted to reach the summit of McKinley, in Alaska, the highest mountain of North America. After reaching an elevation of 11,400 feet, he encountered a precipitous cliff about 4,000 feet high, and abandoned the effort.

The Nobel prizes for 1903 were awarded as follows: Physics, M. Becquerel and M. and Mme. Curie; chemistry, Dr. Arrhenius, of Stockholm, originator of the theory of ions as an explanation of electrolysis; medicine, Dr. Finsen, of Copenhagen, inventor of the electric light cure; literature, Bjornson, the Norwegian poet and novelist, and peace, W. C. Cremer, of England, the secretary of the International Arbitration League.

James Willis Sayre, of Seattle, circumnavigated the globe in a trifle over fifty-four days, beating the best previous record by six days. He travelled westward, sailing from Vancouver across the Pacific, and including the Trans-Siberian Railway in his itinerary.
