The Peary expedition party endured
niu.!i hardship last winter, but, undaunted,

The Kite reached Peary's headquarters
August 3, and started to return on Septem
ber 1. They spent the intervening time
exploring in the intwests of the Greenland
Scientific expedition. Messrs. Dlbltsch,

Many siiecimens of detr, walrus and
Northern animals and birds, flowers, lichens
were secured, but the captures were not as
extensive as had been expected, owing to
the time for exploring being cut short in
the hurry to return.
The Kite visited Jones Sound, Cape

They had a pleasant and uneventful
On arrival of the steamer Kite, Lieut
Tcary and Hugh J. Lee, with his colored
servant, were found safe on board.
They were found at Whale Sound on
August 3, waiting for the Kite, and had only

.MOST NORTHERN POINT.
Independence Bay, Vye most northern
part of Greenland, was reached early In
June, but they were deterred from any great
undertaking by insulficiency of food.
They were obliged on this account to
abandon the attempt to make further
orogress; nearly all the dogs perished
and the remainder had to be shot owing
to the inability to provide them with
anything to eat.
Many Bcnsational stories are current
among the crew of the extremities to
which Peary, Lee and Hensen were re
duced. According to the stones, which
the explorers decline to deny, they were
almost starved and were forced tu cat seal
and other refuse to keep alive.
The overland expedition to Independence
Bav, His learned, was not only not as satis
factory as has been anticipated, but came
very near resulting fatally to Peary and
the other two.
They started late in Ma rch on this Journey
and after reaching Independence Bay were
unable to proceed morethanafewmllcsalong
tuecoast, just bojond their formerstopplng
place. They reached the top of a mountain
and were unable to proceed further on ac
count ot the precipitous nature of the de
scent. During the trip anuncxpected contingency
arose, owing to the fact that Lieut. Peary
was unable to locate his cache ot last ear.
He was unable to discover any marks in
dicating it and was compelled to continue
his journey without the amply food supply
which he had reckoned on.
The three men, Peary, Lee and Hcnson,
-went at onee on short rations, husbanding
as much food as possible bat before many
days their sufferings became Intense and
Lee broke down altogether.
The strain had been so great on him
that it became necessary to place him on a
ledge which the other two drew. His
Illness gave further-cause for alarm because
of the fait that adequate medical supplies
were not on hand and It was feared, during
the first stages that he would die from ex
nauslion But he rallied eventually.
AH three owe their lives to the shooting of
eight musk oxen, but during the Journey
they had to sacrifice the weaker dogs and
feed the flesh to the others for it was nec
essary to sustain some of the animals, as
long as possible to enable theirsuppllcs and
Instruments to be brought along.
Out of the forty nine dogs which started
only one returned alive, and all five
sledges were abandoned during the two
days Just prior to the return of the party
to Anniversary Lodge.
Their safe return they look upon as
almost a miracle, as during those last
two dajs hardly a particle of food passed
the mouths of any of them, and the strug

"Therehavcbeen no negotiations between

Terrific Hot Waves Ibwe Swept Ove

Tree Leaves and Jinking Water
melons Hesprout Few Prostra
tions Have Been Heported. ,
There will be cooler weather to morrow.
Socially and scientifically the weather
of the past ten days has been both an
anomaly and a phenomenon.
ItB first effect was to kill the circulation
of the Joke that the straw hat had been
ordered in by the Weather Bureau.
The second, remarkable effect was tbo
re6proutlng ot the watermelon vines In tba
Another effect was the complete burning
up of the few leaves left by the elm beetla
and the web worm on the shade trees
of the city.
This September has, In fact, been tho
and especially those who had laid away
the summer things for the anticipated fall
and its styles.
People had expected that about this time
the September equinoctial gale would bavs
been blowing great guns through the city,
in Its place there has been the most terrific
hot waves, with theirusual accompaniments
of wilted collars, rivulets of perspiration, a
rennaissance ot las t summer's swear words,
and a complete reformation of the sum
mer's backbone, which was alleged to have
in the bone crushing business.
AN UNUriUAL SUMMER.
The feature of this season has practically
been a summer with two backbones. The
secod vertebral column has been reduced
in the last twenty hours, according to the
of ficial statements, to a thin spinal cord and
will be completely out ot sight by Monday
Scrgt. Dunwoody gave out a whole cold
storage magazine of comfort last night
when he said that In all probability there
would be cooler weather by to-morrow
morning. There is not much relief to be
expected to-day, and the thermometer
may again .reach 90.1 degrees, which
was the maximum for yesterday.
When it is recalled that the hottest
day of the late fiery summer was only
97.3, some Idea may be had of the terribly
oppressive and unnatural September
through which we are now passing as In
a fiery furnace.
The highest point above noted by the
thermometer yesterday was between 2
p. m. and 3 p. m.
The salvation from further discomfort
Is found by the Weather Bureau in a cold
wave which Is slowly moving along the
esalcrn slop of the Rockies and heading for
the South and southeast. Its effects have
already been felt In Louisiana and eastern

This will within about thirty hours begin
to affect but not suddenly the region east
of the Mississippi river, Washington's share
in the bonanza to be realized about to
morrow. Then it will cloud up and there may be
rain but there will certainly be a fall of
temperature. Fall weather will then re
sume its busincss-at the old stand and Itii
not expected that there will be any more
surprises In the way ot eccentric hot wave
A RECORD BREAKER.
A special bulletin was Issued by tho
Weather Bureau yesterday which shows
that this September has been a record
breaker. The bulletin gives tlie record
for second ten days of September,
There were maximum temperatures of 100
at the following places- Lynchburg, Noi
folk, Valentine, Rapid City, North Platte,
Dodge City, Palestine, Wichita, Concordia,
Omaha, Sioux City and Huron. At Con
cordia and faioux City tho temperature
At Bodge City, Abilene, Fort Smith,
Palestine, Memphis, San Antonio, and
several other places, the thermometer
registered over 90 degrees for ten days.
In Washington there were four days In
which the tcraierature was above 90, and
in the other six days or the ten the tera-
' perature was high enough to make the days
and nlghtsextreraely disagreeable.
The peculiar hardshipof thewcalhcrhers
is that there was little or no let up in tho.
oppression at night. Sleep dldained all
kinds of wooing and caressing. A man
or any other human being could neither
pray or curse himself to sleep, but all that Is
