Cook relates his experiences with the cold in the regions of the Antarctic, and in his article he pays: ' "When we start out from our com fortable rooms at headquarters we emerge from an agreeable temperature of 70 degrees into an icy air of minus 40, which makes a difference of 110 de grees of cold within 10 seconds. This causes the breath to come in Jets of steam, and soon the whiskers, tho eye brows and every fragment of hair and fur about the face are covered with icicle and crystals of hoar frost: beau tiful little things, but they do not seem pretty at all to the possessor, for he is constantly, in brushing them off. pull ing out bunches of hair and blowing out warm phrases. One never learns the real trouble of the life of the frigid zones until he has his face bejeweied with icicles.

If there is a little excitement, such as the chasing' of the polar bear, or beinu chased by one. a man is apt to forget his mittens and picks up his rifle with the bare hand. For a fpw seconds there is no discomfort, but when the rifle is laid down the hand sticks to it, and before the hunter separates himself from the grip of the mptal parts he leaves a part of his skin behind, frozen to the gun.
