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

SPECIAL NOTICE.—Musicians are not authorised 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. Applcation 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 hased upon a thorough understanding of the requirements of the pleasure traveller 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. In a vessel which maikes 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 midn؛ght, 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.

PORT AND STARBOARD.—starb.ard 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.
