The Sense of Mystery Tlicrc is somelliini; about Hie spectacle of a man Hying around Hie earth that stirs old memories. II is impossible to review llio amazing fijjlit of Major KiiigsforcUSmiUi aiul the Southern Cross without casting back in the mind to other trips nruinul the world—to ilargclhin, and Drake, and the other hard-bitten aclvenlurei.s of old days who refused to be afraid of unknown seas. Magellan..set out with four rickety' ships and got one back to Spain, giving his own life in the Philippine:) as a climax to a cruise of unimaginable hardship and peril. Drake dodged Spanish cruisers, doubled Cnpc Horn and came back with his ship crammed with gold and jewels. The others of that era who followed in his track had tall talcs to spin when they dropped anchor in home waters again, and the .story of the marvels t|icy had seen was fully equalled by the story of the dangers they had undergone. There couldn't be a more dramatic contrast; Magellan and Drake in cranky, snub-nosed cockle shells, painfully reeling off the miles on an almost endless journey, and this young Australian sailing through the air at 100 miles an hour, endangered chiefly by the possibility .that his compass might go wrong and let him fly about in circles instead of hitting the mark. The old-timers had a slower, more laborous job. Kingsford-Smilh went . faster. The risks he faced were more sudden, less predictable. The news . ' traveled ahead of him.' Magellan went over the horizon and dropped out u[ human knowledge for months; Kings- lord-Smith was on schedule almost to the minute, with crowds waiting for him at every stopping place. The world obviously lias taken tu moving somewhere at a speedy clip. Just where it may be bound, however, and whether the change is going to be for better or for, arc other ijues- tions, to which the answer isn't always quite clear. • Kingsford-Smith'.s flight symbolizes the marvelous growth in communications that has come since the old days. The isolation, the loneliness, the infinite distances that separated man ami man in Magellan's day, are gone forever. The peoples of the 'earth arc being OUT OUR WAY clpagr and closer cogcUicr, We are getilnV much mure familiar with each other and with tlio world we live in. Indeed, wu nwy lie netting too familiar. For MiiKcltiiii, dimbhig up the Pacific, was like ;i nmn on n slranijo phuiet. He could expect iciything. Golden citios and inlands of unclmnt- metit were within the range of his possibilities. He had the sense of womler, the sense of .strungc, uniningjmible glory, ahead of him. And Kinusford-' Smith—like all travelers today—knew precisely where he was going and whul he would .sec there. There were no fable.s to explore. CJreai flyer that ho is, he cannot pilot his monoplane to any sjKjl that has mil been photographed and described already.
