The next return of the strongest series of Auroras now in progress at the 27¼ day interval is due on April 9-10-11. At the last reutrn it appeared in Great Britain on March 13th at 8 P. M., and became strongest shortly after 9 P. M. Simultaneously in the United States earth currents were felt on telegraph lines westward from Buffalo, and again eastward from Bangor, Me., reaching their maximum shortly after 4 P. M., when the Aurora in England was at its height. As shown by the instruments at Toronto Observatory, this magnetic storm continued on March 14th and 15th, and the Auroras were widely seen on those evenings, and the Atlantic cables especially, were much disturbed by earth currents. At the next reutrn it is desired to obtain as much information as possible in regard to the presence or absence of the Aurora in particular localities and all other features.

M. A. VEEDER.

LYONS, NEW YORK, U. S. A. April 3d, 1895.
