An abstract of the applying U.S. Customs Regulations Law follows:

Art. 352. Persons arriving from foreign countries.—Persons arriving from foreign countries are divided into two classes for customs purposes—first, residents of the United States returning from abroad, and second, all other persons.

Art. 353. Residence.—The residence of a wife follows that of her husband, and the residence of a minor child follows that of its parents. Citizens of the United States, or persons who have formerly resided in the United States, shall be deemed to be residents thereof returning from abroad, within the meaning of the tariff act, unless satisfactory evidence is presented that they had given up their place of abode in this country and acquired an actual fixed place of abode in a foreign country.

Art. 354. Non-residents.—All persons not residents of the United States returning from abroad will be treated for customs purposes as non-residents, and are entitled to bring in free of duty all wearing apparel, articles of personal adornment, toilet articles, and similar personal effects, without limitation as to value, which were actually owned by them and in their possession abroad at the time of or prior to their departure from a foreign country which are necessary and proper for their wear and use, provided they are not intended for other persons or for sale.

Such articles purchased or agreed to be purchased abroad by returning residents may be admitted free notwithstanding they do not accompany the passenger.
  • All wearing apparel, personal and household effects, and articles for personal use taken abroad by them, if not advanced in value or improved in condition while abroad. If such effects or articles be advanced in value or improved in condition while abroad by reason of repairs or cleaning further than that necessarily incident to their wear and use while abroad, or by remodeling or alterations, the cost or value of such repairs, cleaning, remodeling, or alterations is subject to duty, and must be declared.

Amended as follows

Par. 1695. Wearing apparel, articles of personal adornment, toilet articles, and similar personal effects of persons arriving in the United States ; but this exemption shall include only such articles as were actually owned by them and in their possession abroad at the time of or prior to their departure from a foreign country, and as are necessary and appropriate for the wear and use of such persons and are intended for such wear and use, and shall not be held to apply to merchandise or articles intended for other persons or for sale ; Provided, That all jewelry and similar articles of personal adornment having a value of $300 or more, brought in by a non-resident of the United States, shall, if sold within three years after the date of the arrival of such person in the United States, be liable to duty at the rate or rates in force at the time of such sale, to be paid by such person ; Provided further, That in case of residents of the United States returning from abroad all wearing apparel, personal and household effects taken by them out of the United States to foreign countries shall be admitted free of duty ; without regard to their value, upon their identity being established under appropriate rules and regulations to be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury : Provided further.

RECOVERY OF U.S. HEAD TAX.—The United States Government imposes a " head tax " of $8.00 on all aliens. This tax can be recovered by passengers, if same has been paid, provided they inform the U.S. Immigration Inspector on arrival at New York of their intention to leave the United States within sixty days (the time prescribed by U.S. Law), and obtain from him Transit Certificate Form 514.

It is necessary for this Transit Certificate Form 514 to be handed to the transportation company when completed, in time to allow same to be placed before the Immigration Authorities in Washington within 120 days of passengers' arrival in the United States.
Unless this regulation is complied with, the Tax cannot be recovered.

After landing, passengers should inquire at the desk on the wharf for letters and telegrams.

PUBLIC TELEPHONES. —Telephone service with booths and operators in attendance will be found on the pier at New York.

SPECIAL NOTICE. — Musicians are not authorized to solicit contributions.

HOTEL RESERVATION.—Owing to the fact that hotels in New York and other large cities are so often crowded, passengers are invited to take advantage of facilities offered by the United States Lines for reserving rooms in advance. Application should be made to the Information Office. No charge is made for this service.

The chief office of the UNITED STATES LINES is located at 45 Broadway, New York City, where the facilities afforded are based upon a thorough understanding of the requirements of the pleasure traveler and business man, and link with those of the branches throughout Europe, to provide all services in every department of Ocean Travel.

TIME ON SHIPBOARD. — Between New York and London there is a difference in time of five hours, and as the sun rises in the East, as we say. when the ship is going eastward she meets sunlight earlier each day and thus gains time. Exactly how much is computed each day at noon, and the ship's clocks are immediately set at the correct time for that longitude. On a vessel which makes the crossings in five days the clocks will be set ahead each day approximately an hour ; on slower ship, of course, less. Going westward the clock is set back daily in similar fashion.

On the voyage from Europe, owing to the alteration in time as the ship proceeds Westward, it is necessary to put the clock back every 24 hours. The alteration in time is made at about midnight, and the clock is usually put back 45 minutes on each occasion, the exact amount of time depending upon the distance the ship is estimated to make by noon the next day. During the first 24 hours, however, owing to the change from Mean Time to Apparent Time, the alteration is likely to be considerably more than 45 minutes, especially while Summer Time is in use.

KILOMETERS, KILOGRAMS and MILES. — *' Kilo " is the abbreviation of " Kilogramme," or kilogram, and a kilogramme is exactly 2.205 pounds. The ** kilometer," the French standard of distance measurement, and which is used generally on the Continent of Europe, is equal to 3,367.88 feet—approximately $ of a mile. The metre, or meter, the nearest Continental measure to our yard, is 3.281 feet. A land mile measures 5,280 feet ; a nautical or sea mile or " knot " is 6,080 feet in length. The Continental standard of liquid measure is the " litre," which is equal to 1.76 pints.

PORT AND STARBOARD. — Starboard is the right side of the ship, looking forward. Port, the left side.

THE GULF STREAM. — By far the most important, as well as best known of the great ocean currents, derives its name from the Gulf of Mexico, out of which it flows between Cuba and the Bahamas on the one side and the Florida Keys on the other. In its narrowest portion the Gulf Stream is about fifty miles wide, and there it has a velocity at times of as much as five miles an hour. Flowing in a north-easterly direction along the American coast, its current gradually widens and its velocity diminishes. Reaching the banks of Newfoundland it turns and sweeps across the Atlantic ; then, dividing into two portions, it sends one arm down toward the Azores and the coast of Morocco, while the other passes near the shores of the British Isles and on to Norway.

As it emerges from the Gulf of Mexico it has a temperature of 84 degrees in summer, higher than that of the ocean at the equator. Even by the time it has reached mid-Atlantic it has not fallen more than 14 degrees. The effect of the Stream upon the climate of Great Britain and the north-west coast of Europe 4,000 miles away from the Gulf, is to raise the winter temperature about 30 degrees above what would be the normal temperature of those latitudes.
