Every seat in the assembly hall was filled, and over a hundred people stood during the program. The audience were en- thusiastic and-every artist had many friends present to encourage him or her. The singing of the choirs was -the central attraction of the evening but the singing- and playing by Miss Priseilla Layton was a revelation of what a tiny tot of live years can do. The judge of the evening was Prof. G.Harper, of Lethbridge. His deci- sions were lair to all parties. He of- f fered many timely suggestions to the competitors. i The first .on the program was the Lady's Solo. There were four -on- testants, -who sang in the folio w-'ng order: Mrs. L. B.

The balloon, with instruments intact, has been found by Inlanders on a glacier twelve miles north of Sttibotten, on the fjord. The instrument recording alt- itudes indicated a height of metres, the greatest ever attained over polar regions. Prof. Hergesell has just worked out all the records taken, and from it aP- pears that the lowest temperature re- gistered, minus 60 degrees centigrade. was not found at the ten-mile height, but at a little over six miles above the earth. At ten miles the instru- ment registered minus 47 degrees cen- tigrade. This is the first proof, Prof- Herge- sell declares, that what is known as the great atmospheric inversive layer, in which the temperature rises again after having fallen steadily, also ex- ists over the Polos. It was first ob- served by the professor himself and the Prince of Monaco, in 1905, in the sub-tropical parts of the Atlantic Ocean. This warmer layer at or noa-r the Poles seems to be encountered at a lower height than at the equator. Hergesell's experiments have shown .that at the greatest altitudes of which records aro available it is cold- er at the equator than at the Poles.
