TERRESTRIAL MAGNETISM An International Quarterly Journal Edited by L. A. BAUER With the Co=operation of Eminent Magneticians WTITH the March, 1897, issue, this Journal, devoted exclusively to Terrestrial Magnetism and allied Subjects, such as Earth Currents, Auroras, Atmospheric Electricity, etc., entered on its second volume. The hearty co-operation extended by the workers in this promising field of investigation, as abundantly shown by the numbers thus far issued, has made this Journal the international organ for making known the latest achievements. The magnetic needle has become such a promising instrument af research, not only in terrestrial, but in cosmical physics, that this Journal appeals to a large class of investigators. The geographer, the geologist, the astronomer, the meteorologist-all are interested in the development of the subject of terrestrial magnetism. It should therefore receive their support. Among the contributors of the main articles in the past have been Messrs. Barus, Borgen, Chree, Eschenhagen, Littlehales, Rucker, Schmidt, Schuster, and de Tillo. Future numbers will contain: "The Earth, a Great Magnet," BY DR. J. A. FLEMING. "The Electrification of the Atmosphere," BY PROF. ALEXANDER McADIE. "The Height of the Aurora," BY PROF. CLEVELAND ABBE. "The Distribution of Magnetic Observatories," (Illustrated), BY PROF. MAX ESCHENHAGEN, etc., etc. The size of the Journal is royal octavo, a volume embracing about 200 pages.
