' When Captain Cook was making one of his historic voyages around the world In the Eighteenth century he happened on South Georgia Island, It Is recorded. At first he thought It might bo the "terro lncognla Austrnlis" ho was In search of, ho he went nshoro and as he recorded in his dlaryt ."took possession of the country" In his maj esty's name, under u discharge of small arras." When tho great circumnavigator ex amined his discovery a little more closely and found It. to be a mere bunch of Icy mountains, he concluded that It was "not worth the discovery." Nevertheless he "culled this land -the Isle ofGeorgla in honor of his maj esty." Ills majesty, by the way, was none other than George III. A hundred years later the seafar ing men of New Englund cume to the conclusion that South Georgia island was not as worthless as Captain Cook had supposed. It was u great place for fur seals. They slaughtered more than 1,000,000, virtually exterminating them In that part of tho Antarctic Then came a harvest of "elephant oil," extracted from the blubber of tho sea elephant, tho giant of the seal family.
