The Germania declares that reporti that the war cabinet considered the queBtion at its last meeting are falne. Political circles, accorcffng to the Tagehlatt^ regret the emperor's trip Ladies!

Climate' depends on latitude, oceftn currents, nearness to' large bodies of water, winds and mouhtains or forest. . Illustrations - The snow, on the mountains in summer due to altitude.' The difference in temperature of day and night and seasonal differences in Alberta is because we are so far Inland away tram the modifying efCectt of large bogles of water. The difference in climate of British Columbia and IiTewfoundlaSd due to effect of ocean currents. Japan.current Is warm while the polar current from the north strikes the coast of Newfoundland. Mountains effect the climate by forming barrier^ for winds and rainfall. This accounts for the heavy rainfall of Pacific coast and the dry winds of Alberta. 3. Comparison of the two Americas. In physical characteristics there Is considerable resemblance between the two Americas. Both are. wide at the north and become narrow at the south. Each has near its western coast a lofty chain of nlDuntains and a lower chain oh the opposite side. In the^ former volcanoes abound while In the eastern highlands there is no evidence of volcanoes. In both continents is a great centra} plain ploplng to the, north and south. In drainage the Mississippi corresponds with La Plate, the Amason with St. Lawrence and the Orinoco with the MacKenzie. Hero the resemblance ceases tor the climate and consequently the products differ. The rainfall in the basin of the Amazon la very heavy and the vegetation is tropical, while the rainfall on the) eastern coast of North America Is suf-' ficlent and well distributed, it is not heavy and the vegetation is that of the temperate zone. Then again on the western coast of North America especially in Canada the rainfall is heavy while the Western side of the Ahdes has practically no rainfall and no vegetation. These differences are due to pr'ovaillng winds and their direction. Both countries bare some .prodiiots in common while others are not. Both produce wheat and food stuffs, tropical products produced In South Amer lea consist of coffee, spices, sugar, while in North America sugar, cotton, corn and the hardier- grains are pro duced in great quantities. Th i:uuBe of day and night and the seasons: Th rotation of the earth on its axis every twenty-four hours gives us day and night The inequality In the length of day and night and the cause of the season is due (o the earth's axis being at an angle of twenty-three and a halt degrees from the perpendicular to the plane of its orbit as it revolves around the sun once a year.
