He states that the steamer which is to take the expedition to its start- ing point in the Danish islands has already arrived at Trondhjem, Nor- way, where it is now lying in dry dock, and it will be ready to leave for Spitzbergen about the first of June. The party which is to pro- ceed to the .islands is made up of some thirty-five persons. The sleds are to be drawn by dogs coming from the north of Siberia from the Samoiedes tribes dwelling on the banks of the Obi river. The airship, according to the present design, is 55.8 meters (183.7 feet) in length, with a middle diameter of 16 me- ters (52.8 feet) The volume of the bMloon is 7,500 cubic meters (9,825 cubic yards), and it will have an ascensional force of 8,870 kilo- grammes (19,515 pounds). Near Paris is being constructed a new nacelle which is built entirely of "steel, with a motor and improved mechanical parts for the helice, these having been designed by Mr. Wellmam The mechanical design has some original features which differ i to a great extent from what has "been hitherto constructed for airships. Built of steel tubes which give it lightness as well as stiffness the nacelle has a total length of 115 feet. Together with the steel part is built a large reservoir which is expected to contain all the gasoline needed for the trip to the pole and return, this being 6,800 liters. As regards the pr]6cipal motor mount- ed on the nacelle, it is rated at 60 to 70 horse-power. Directly mount- ed upon the motor hafting are two helices of steel having 11.5 feet  . diameter, and there is one such helice at either end of the nacelle, resembling in this respect the de- sign which is adopted by the Le- baudy brothers in the airship "Pa- ttie." A good speed is expected to be made by the new airship, this being calculated at fifteen to eight- een miles an hour, and there will be enough fuel in the reservoir to give a continuous flight of 150 hours at full speed. This is expected to al- : low the airship to cover a radius of &apos; 2,000 miles, and is nearly double : the distance from Spitzbergen to the pole and return, so that there is a " good margin allowed. All the me- : chanical parts have been put thru i a good series of practical tests for some time past. When the airship is entirely set up at Spitzbergen in July, a series of trial tests will be made of the whole before setting out upon the trip. Mr. Wellman does not think it advisable to make the trial tests of the balloon at Paris before taking it to the Arctic regions. At first he intended to do so, but was brought to a different conclu- sion after considering the matter. Should this be done he could not :ti" make the trip this year, as a balloon shed would have to be built and  "other arrangements made. which ...... would take a great deal of time, and again these tests would not be de- cisive at any rate, seeing that the airship must be taken apart for transportation for several thousand mils and then set up again. 7]?0 be sure that all was right, a new set of trials would need to be made on the ; spot after assembling it. As the airship is designed for use in the Arcticregions and above the ice, the : conditions are special, and it would need to be tested on the spot. The new airship America will carry quite an amount of load, seeing that besides the machinery and 3 tons of gasoline there will be four or five men for the crew, about a dozen dogs ! for the sleds and all that will be !" -- ,."

The material which is used for the balloon seems to be of first- class quality and according to recent tests made upon it, not more than one per cent of hydrogen would be lost during twenty-four hours. Even should this amount rise as high as two per cent per day, Mr. Wellman estimates that he could continue in the air for about twenty-five or thirty days without difficulty, keep- ing the ballon" swelled out by the interior ballonet, tIis present plan is to arrive at Spitzbergen durin K the first week of June and thus to make a series of trial flights during the month of July, leaving for the pole about the first half of August. Mountain Fever in Stock Pullman, Wash., May 25.--The vet- erinary department of the state col : lege is receiving frequent inquiries from stockmen and farmers all over the state, asking advice in the matter of treating "mountain fever." To such persons the following informa tion is being sent: In treating these animals, it is ad- visable o offer them plenty of clean, wholesome food and plenty of good water. Have their quarters well ven- tilated but not drafty, and treat them according to the symptoms present. In some instances constipation will be noticed, where mild cathartics may !be used advantageously In other cases an extreme looseness of the bowels will be present. In all cases be very careful in exhibiting cathar- tics. Do not use the half dosage, Other than this, stimulants and tonics Such as dram doses twice daily of tincture of nux vomica coupled with a little alcohol or whiskey, ann if the appetite is poor, tonics for the stom- ach, such as gentian one "easpoonful, ginger one teaspoonful, might be de- sirable. Owing to the fact that this disease presents itself in so many dif- ferent phases, it is impossible to give specific directions for the treatment of any specific case unless its special symptoms are rehearsed to us.

"Some- times it settled in my knees and lamed me so I could hardly walk, at other times it would be in my feet and hands so I was incapacitated for duty. One night when I was in severe pain and lame from it my wife went to the drug store here and came back with a bottle of Chamberlaiu':s Pain Balm. I was rubbed with it and found the pain had nearly gone during the nighs. I kept ou usin i for a littlemore than two reeks and found that it drove the rheu- matism away. I have not had any trouble from that disease for over three months." For sale by E. A. obcvts, druggist.
