AMcharan, WV'L^a, and tlie rest, have L,ditteretl unchmmed hy rival hjL^ht, when suddenly the ehon dome of the "(ireat Niirht " is rent and slashed 1)- llashin-' blades of li^'ht which dart like rapiers athwart the l)lue-l)lack sky, then rush toi/ether to form a blazinir arch, si)annino thi; heavens, and bristliniL; with jxjints which leap and flash like the ui)lifted sabres of charj^ino;' cavalry. Then arch and sabres melt into a faint luminous cloud, which breaks into a hundred tenuous tlutterini^ banners. Then, as the celestial elec- trician turns the current on full force, with an instant, simultaneous movement, the banners leap and merj^e into a rayant wavinj^ curtain, the folds of which sway to and fro far out across the desolate, ri^id sea. As the i^hostly undulations sweep alon^ the curtain's edj^e, pale llashes of red and ij^reen sprinc^ out, and, standin;^ in the utter silence of the frozen ni^ht, one almost fancies that he hears the waving of the mighty folds shaping itself to sound. Then instant as it came, it vanishes, and the stars, the ebon dome, and tht- uplifted desolation of the "Great Ice" hold full sw^av a^rain.. FLASH-LIGHT STUDY. il H i' i.
