Those co-operating, and others, will be interested to learn that the records of observations fo the aurora made at the station of Mr. Peary in North Greenland the past winter have been received and that their comparison with similar records from other parts of the earth is now in progress. It already appears that the conclusions heretofore announced in regard to certain phases of the subject are being substantially confirmed, and that teh forces of which the aurora is the visible expression and type play an exceedingly important part in many ways. The relations to certain very definite solar conditions, and to thunderstorms, and to certain phases of atmostpheric control are becoming especially clear. It is fitting that all who have so kindly contributed to the success of the scheme should have assurance that their labor is not in vain. It is proposed to continue these observations and if possible make them even more valuable. All data bearing upon the subject will be thankfully received and employed to the best possible advantage.
