By GARRKTT I SFRVISR.
A year or so ago a proposal was seri
ously urged upon the attention of con
gress and of the American people to
change the course of the Oulf stream
by means of gi
gantic harriers to
be erected on the
banks near X,w .
The avowed put -pose
of this great'
a truly Martian
s. ale of magnifi
cent defiance to
natuie. was to im
prove the climatic
the Atlantic sea
hoard of the fnlted
States by bring
ing the wsrm waters of the (Julf stream
close inshore. The fact was not blinked
hut openly avowed that such change in
the course of the vsst "oceanic river"
would have a disastrous effect upon the
climate of the Hrltish Isles, which is
now one of the most genial and salu
brious in tl.e world, and this in spite of
the fact that those isles lie in so high a
latitude that ir they were transported
stralcl.t across the Atlantic they would
drop down In northern Labrador and
Hudson's Hhv. Hut the Inventor of the
s. heme did not trouble himself about
other people's climates he was only In
terested in Lettering our own.
Whether or no this hold Yankee pro
position was taken seriously In Kngland.
at least It seems to have been the signal
for a manifestation there of renewed In
terest In the (lulf Htreim as one of the
grandest and most mysterious of all ter
restrial phenomena, and a recent lec
tin on the subject by Commander ramp
bell llepwoith. delivered before the Koyal
Geographical society, has Just found Its
way Into Hrltish scientific Journals.
Commander Hepworth unhesitatingly
places himself In opposition to those who
hold that the supposed Influence of the
Gulf stream on the Hrltish c'lmate is a
myth. He brings a great amount of sta
tistical Information Into play to prove
that "the warm, relatively hlgh-aallnlty
water which undoubtedly exercises an
ameliorating effect upon the climate of
our islands and upon that of northwestern
Kuropn generally, Is mainly of equatorial
origin and is directly attributable to the
influence of the Gulf Stream."
But if the Gulf Stream benefits the cli
mate of Kngland, It Is eipially ministerial
In damaging ours. It In an American In
stitution, for It takes its rise in the Gulf
of Mexico; yet it appears to reserve its
beneficence lor the old country. It per

A glance at a "physi al geography''
will fhow how the t'.Ut stream, after
starting northward close along the south
ern part of the Atlantic coast, begins at
first gradually, and thun rapidly, to turn
away toward the center of the Atlantic,
while the cold labtador current, sweep
ing down from Pavls's strait, with its
burden of Icebergs, encounters the warm
stream off the Newfoundland banks, and,
by virtue of the eastward trend of the
stream at that point, is tnrown in toward
Nova Scotia and tha shores of New Kng
lnnd. It is to this that we owe our cold, late
sprlngi, while the varying stages of the
perpetual struggle between the gulf
rtream and the Labrador current are
reflected In the changeable and Insalubri
ous haracter of our weather during
There is a good deal of popular mis
apprehension concerning the flow of the
:ulf stream. It Is often spoken of as a.
river In the ocean, and to a certain extent
it d s resemble a stupendous river.
V, here is issuea from the stiait of Florida
It Is fifty miles wide, and sweeps the
rocky bottom at a depth of about ii.nou
feet. Its color is blue. In contrast with
the greenish water through which It
passes, with quite sharply defined bor
ders. The surface speed Is five miles an
hour, but diminishes rapidly to about
sixty miles a day off the Carolina coast,
forty miles off Nantucket, and less than
thirty near the Grand banks.
As it passe out Into the deep sea, after
sheering off from the American coast, It
no longer touches the bottom or comes
anywhere near It- Its depth diminishes
ss its breadth increases, until It Is prob
ably not more than 20 to 3"0 foet 6p,
flowing over a cushion of cold water be
neath. Its temperature also rapidly di
minishes with depth, most of its heat
being confined to Its surface layers.
What makes this river in the sea'.'
What keeps it flowing? Ths answer is.
"the wind." The ultimate source of the
gulf stream is the great equatorial cur
rent, which is kept In continual motion
westward by the trade winds (and the
trade winds srise from tha rotation of the
earth). F.ncounterlng tha projecting and
southward sloping shoulder of rtouth
America, the equatorial current Is turned
northwestward into the Caribbean sea
and the Gulf of Mexico. Tha latter Is a
round trap for the water driven Into it.
The water is "heaped up" in the gulf
until It attains a general level at least
three feet higher thsn that of tha Atlantic
off New York. It escapes as alresdy de
scribed, through t'ne Florida strait, and
here the true gulf stream takes Its origin.
Umg before It reaches the British Isles
It has spread out like a fan, and ceased
to resemble a river, but It still earrles a
eonslderabla quantity of tha heat de
rhd from tho equatorial son.
Oiesn currents hsve sn enormous ef
fect in governing t ie climate of manv
parts of the esrth, and who knows but
that the t;mi will come when we alisll

Innist on a defnite answer. After three
years of courtship a girl ef twenty-eight i
should be ready to decide whether or not
she loves you well enough to marry you
alt a ear.
pear Miis Fairfax: I am a young
girl of It and In love with a young'
man two years my senior . This yewrsj
man has n: Ited me several times to marry
b in. and being so young, 1 told him to
wall a while, hut he Insists that I should
get mairleil now. My mother thinks a lot
ni ibis fellow, and told me to suit myself.
Talk It over with your fiance and aeet If
In cannot be persuaded to wait a year.
Tell him that alnce you both ara so
young, it is wUo to prove tha strength of
)..ur live by a time of waiting. True
love, on which alone marriage should ba
based, will outlast any period of waiting.
'Ihe New Girls.
Pen- Mis Fairfax' I am 19. not at all
pretty, but considered lather neat and at
tractive. I have been alone in the city
s in e my mother died and 1 am employed
at I lie news stand at one of tha largo
hotels, where I meet mostly all men.
I have Invitations most every day to
lun'-h, theater, etc., but always refuse, as
I think it miuht interfere with my work.
Mow-ever. 1 have met a young man who
seems interested in me. and haa asked
me several times to spend a week-end at
bis poreuta' country In. me In lng Is
land, though I have never met his mother
r sisters, of whom he always speaks.
I in you think It would be advisable to ac
cept his Invitation or should It come from
his mother. NEWS OITtU
You must not dream of accepting- any
young man's Invitation to visit at hla
home. Hesldes being improper It would
be very dangerous for you to go off on a
visit to people of whom you know noth
ing. Apart from the element of danger
you would be In a very humiliating posi
tion IT you found thai this young man's
mother considered you In the light of a
forward and unwelcome guest. I beg of
you, my dear girl, remember that you ar
alone and in a parthularly unprotected
position, and continue to behave wlta
dignity and iiun-t good breeding.
