THE FATE OF THE SHACKLETON EXPE
: Sir Douglas Mawson's expression of confi
dence in the safe outcome of tlie Shackleton
South Polar Expedition, as expressed in an in
terview on his visit here a few days ago, is not
shared by all the Polar explorers.
Newspapers ,from New York which have
reached Honolulu show that tlie experts are
very anxious as to Shackleton s fate. He was
to have met the vessel Aurora after a march of
1700 miles across the Antarctic wastes, and the
Aurora, torn away bya vast ice-floe, escaped
from her winter fetters a year from the time
Ehe was frozen in. Consequently she was un
able to keep the life-and-dcath engagement with
the Shackleton land party. Now the dauntless
young Englishman and his small party must
probably stay another year in the frozen south.
There is talk of a relief expedition, but it can
not do more than reach Shackleton next winter.
But the history 6f Polar exploration is full of
remarkable achievements and Shackleton may
come off "safely v
Many previous expeditions have been direct
ed to this inhospitable continent, the first of
real importance being that of 'Capt. Cook in
1773-4. In 1819-21 the Russian, Capt.; von Bel
lingshausp attained to 69 degrees 53 minutes
routh but his record was passed by Capt. Ross
expedition in 1840-1, which discovered the great
volcanoes Erebus and Terror and reached 78
degrees south latitude. ;
The honor of being the first to spend a winter
iu the Antarctic fell tcT the Belgian, Capt de
Gerlache, in the Belgictr, 1898 but Capt Scott's
expedition in the Discovery passed two consecu
tive winters during the expedition of 1901-4,
reaching to the latitude'of 82 degrees 17 min
i ; 1 c s south. ; y' r , ' :" V ,.
A number! of explorers were devoting- their
itention,to the South Polar continent during
.!;c0 years.; The German expedition (19013)
: the Gauss discovered Kaiser Wilhelm II.;
L;;nd; the Swedish enterprise under Dr. Nord-
::-kjold lost his ship in the Antarctic in the
'.3 in 1D03, but her drew was saved; the Scot
Ii expedition under Dr. Bruce in' the Scotia
a r 02-4) wintered in the South Orkneys; Dr.'
".arrot conducted two French explorations, in
Franeais (1004-5), and in the Pourquoi Pas
1 T 03-10). A Japanese venture under Lieut
irase'had to be abandoned in 1911, and a
nnan expedition under Lieut. Filchner in
:!:o Deutschland began work the same "y ear.
The Norwegian expedition' under Capt
Amundsen was crowned with success, as that
xplqrcr actually reached the coveted goal and
uted ' the . Norwegian flag on December 14,
11. He afterward stated that he very nearly
:.de up' his mind to leave some tins of oil ir
depot at the Pole. Had he done so it is more
;!.;;n likely that Capt Scott, who found the
rcgin Cag flying there, would have been able
return to his ship, as in his diary he com
!aihs of the mysterious shortage of fuel which

demonstration activities among the women of
the south have proved remarkably successful.
The summary shows that" in ; the canning
clubs 32,013 girls were enrolled, in. the poultry
clubs 9854, and in the bread clubs 3062. More
than G,000,000 nounds of tomatoes, vegetables
and other fruits were canned. . Th average
profit from each tenth of an acre that the can
ning girls were required to cultivate was $24.01.
in the demonstration work among the par
ents ,6871 women ' were enrolled and tlie total
attendance at the demonstration meetings was
74,3.'J3. Two hundred and fifty rurat commun
ity clubs are now, in existence. ; The summary
also includes a report on the number of labor
saving devices and home conveniences made by
the women under the direction and with .the
assistance of the demonstration agents.'- These
devices include 2181 firelessopkersl423 fly
traps, and a large number of iceless refrigera
tors, wheel trays, etc. Six hundred, and sixty
one houses were screened as a -jresultlof the
work. - -' -1 : i - ' v 5 u 4Q
, Much of the demonstration work in poultry
raising, cooking, home dairying, etc.,-. is pf a
character that cannot1! be easilf 'summanzed m
tables of statistics. The results,-however, have
been very significant In Virginia, for exam
ple, 670 members enrolled in 79 poultry clubs.
One of these women cleared a profit of $16o.l7
from 30 hens. In Oklahoma, again, 85. girls
who reported the results ; of their work : with
poultry produced a total of 13086 dozen eggs.
They received for those eggs which they sold
