Two years ago when a man offered

An Unexpected and Badly Needed
- i Feast In the Arctic.
PY Noah in his ark could not have been
more delighted over the return of the
dove than were the members of Ejnar
ei- lkkelsen's party, in the desert of
e- Greenland Ico. with the sight of a
dock of wild geese. In "Lost In the
- Arctic" Captain Mikkelsen tells- of
their need of food, of the fatigue of a
2 long sledge journey and of his own ill
ness. He had become so weak that he
a- was obliged to ride on the sledge. Con
. sequently their progress was very slow.
1s We drive on between a lot of little
islands or banks of glacial ice. Sud
ir enly Iverson makes a snatch at the
1. sledge, causing the dogs to halt In as
t tonishment, and whispers eagerly,
'Look, look! What's that?' He points
f to something that looks like a lot of
- round stones, and I can scarcely be
A lieve my eyes. It Is a big flock of
,0 geese, sitting there sound asleep. They
s have not heard us. In a few seconds
Iverson is on his way toward them.
r I of course remain where I am on the
d He takes aim, fires and the whole
flock rises. Stop a minute! Isn't there
i one on the ground? I snatch up the
). glass. Not one, but two are left upon
i- the field, and after following the shriek
- Ing flock a little way Iverson returns,
d beaming with joy, a big fat goose In
r either hand. We are delighted and
q drive off southward in the best of
r spirits. Iverson even stops every now
e and then to feel the splendid fat bodies
r of the birds, and we do nothing but
r talk of what a feast we are to have
r when they are cooked. The dogs are
e doing their best. Iverson marches at
e the rear of the sledge, singing at the
r top of his voice, and even I feel a lit
o tle better.
Arctic and Antarctic Problems That
t Still Remain Unsolved.
d The era of pole hunting is now hap
s pily over, and the best result of Pea
s ry's and Amundsen's athletic feats In
the north and south Is that the really
t Important problems of the circumpolar
d regions can henceforth be attacked
i- with a single mind. From a scientific
standpoint enough work remains'to be
1 done in these regions to last for sev
e eral generations.
s The antarctic has only been scratch
ed, so to speak. Owing to the diverse
. scales used in school geographies the
average man goes through life with
badly warped Ideas concerning the rel
s ative sizes of various parts of the
Y earth's surface, and so probably few
people realize that the antarctic conti
nent is very much larger than Europe
r -in fact, about as large as Europe and
e Australia combined. Of this huge con
s tinent we do not know even the shape
a and location of the coast line, eXcept
for one long stretch south of Australia
e and a few widely scattered points else
Y where, while the whole interior, apart
from a narrow wedge between Ross
f sea and the pole, is virtually blank on
r our maps.
In the arctic. a patch of a million
a square miles is still absolutely un
s touched. So much for mere surface
~geography; but, of course, modern p0
r lar research includes a wide range of
nongeographical .problems pertining
to such diverse subjects as geology,
e glaciology,meteorology,terrestrial mag
netism, seIsmology, oceanography, zool
ogy, botany, physflogy, ethnology and
f archaeology.-Review of Reviews.

One morning a merchant whose
goods did not very strongly substanti
ate his advertising claims put out a
new sign. He was pleased to see that
a great many people stopped to read it,
but directly he was puzzled and an
gered to notice that they all went on,
laughing. There was nothing funny
about the sign. it merely read:
- If You Buy Here Once
You Wiln Come Again.
The merchant went outside In a cas
-ual sort of way and glanced at his sign
to see what was the matter. Some
one, no doubt a former customer, had
added another line, It now read:

t Wearing spectacles to protect the

There can be no thorough and con

DIET AND COLOR.
What Man Eats Seems to Determin
the Shade of His Skin.
What you eat determines your color
according to Bergfleld, a German lnves
tigator-not necessarily that you your
self could effect any change of color
but your ancestors for thousands o
years have unconsciously been influ
enced by the food they have eaten anc
the drinks they have drunk.
For Instance, the original men wert
black, says Bergfleld. Their chief die
was of vegetables and fruits, he ex

How the Pulmotor is Used to Restor,
The pulmnotor is an automatic resus
citation appliance which produces
flow of inhaled and exhaled air by
single nozzle, the rhythm of respiratioa
adjusting Itself automatically to th
dimensions of the lung, and thus th
astonishing result is produced of
seemingly lifeless hody beginning t
breathe regularly as soon as the pul
motor is placed In connection 'with I1
The pulmotor works directly on th
respiratory organs and If the spark (

The pulmotor is used on persons over
come by gas, electric shock, appareni
ly drowned or in other cases where th~
breathing of the patient has been ser:
ously impaired or stopped entirely an
where there still remains a slight hear
action. Its motive power Is an oxyge
cylinder containing this gas, which *1
supply a 00 per cent mixture of al
and oxygen to the patient for fort
minutes. It has a great advantag
over artificial respiration by handi
that it forces larger amounts of oxa
genated air Into tao lungs than It
possible by ordinary methods of artif
cial respiration, and the work can h
kept up longer.-Philadelphlfa Press.
