THE IIYSTERY OF LONDON LIGHTS. I For a long time past (says a correspon- dent) Londoners have been puzzling over a phenomenon which is to be seen any night. Mysterious flashes appear in the sky, especially over certain districts. They seem to have an electric origin, of which the sceptic says it is oirl vthe District Railway or the trains with overhead wires. More credulous neople believe that the anti-aircraft stations are signalling to one -another, and stil] more cred ulous persons have dark tales of German spies and flash lamps. The scpptic cannot ex- plain why the trains and the trams have suddenly taken to giving off this new illumination, but he is right nevertheless. The explanation is that the air is charged with electricity, and so what in normal times would be an unnoticed spark becomes a powerful flash. The con- stant use of wireless and the multiplica- tion of wireless stations are responsible for the increased amount of electricity in the atmosphere, which magnifies every spark.
