THE FATE OF THE SHACKLETON EXPE-
Sir PonglasMawson,; expression of confi

South Polar Expeditibnas expressed' in an in

shared by all the Polar explorers.

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 jthe
Aurora, torn away by a vast ice-floe, escaped
from her winter fetters a vear from the time
she was frozen. in. .-'Consequently she was un
able to keep the life-and-death 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-cannot
do more than reach Shackleton next winter.
Hut the history of Polar exploration is full of
remarkable achievements and. Shackleton may
come off safely. . ;
Many previous expeditions- have been direct
cd 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-j
lingshausen attained to G9 degrees 53 minutes
outh but his record was'passed byCapt. Ross
expedition jn 1840-1 which discovered the great
volcanoes Erebus and Terror and reached 78
(Ugrees south latitude. : ' ?
The honor of being thefirst to spend a winter
in the Antarctic fell to. the Belgian, Capt., de
(Jerlachc, in the Belgiea1893; but Capt Scott's
expedition in the Discovery passed two consecu
tive winters during" the expedition of 1901-4,
caching to the1 latitude of 82 degrees 17 min

A numlibr of explorers were devotingL their
tleution fo the South Polar continent during
:'.cso years. The German expedition (1013)
: the GlIiss discovered Kaiser Wilhelm II.
the.Swedish enterprise under Dr. Nord-
. kjold lost his ship in the Antarctic in the

r.rcot conducted two French explorations, in
Francois (1904-5), and in the Pourquoi Pas
' : ,;3-10). A Japanese venture under Lieut
..irasejhud to be abandoned in 1911, arid a
nnan expedition under Lieut. Filchner, in
Deutsehland began work the same year.
The Xc.rwegian - expedition under Capt.

That education, like charity, begins at home
is the theory of the United States department
of agriculture, extension bureau;- and its home
demonstration activities among the women of
the south have proved remarkably successful.
The summary' shows that tin v the, canning
clubs .12,b13 girls, were enrolled, rh the poultry
clubs 9854, and in. the bread clubs ?M'i More
than 0,000,000 pounds of tomatoes,-vegetables
and other fruits were canned. The ' 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 G871 women were enrolled and the total
attendance at the demonstration meetings was
74,335. Two hundred and fifty rural eomraun
ity clubs are now in existence. ; The summary
also includes a report on the numbcr.of labor
saving devices and home conveniences made by
the women under the direction; and with the
assistance of the demonstration agents.-4 These
devices include 2181 fireless cookers, 1423 fly
traps, and a large number of iceless' ref rigera
tors, wheel t rays, etc. Six hundred and 'sixty
one ' houses were screened as a result '--"of - the
work. ' ; :'r : .::y . : "'.' :".
Much of the demonstration work in poultry
raising, cooking, home dairying, etc, is of a
character that cannot be easily summarized in
tables of statistics. The results, however, have
been very significant. In Virginia, or exam
ple, G70 members enrolled in 79 poultry clubs.
One of these women cleared a profit of $165.17
from 30 liens. In Oklahoma, again, - 85 girls
wIiq reported, the results of r their work with
