MERELY TO GATHER FACTS Party Did Not Seek to Make a New Record in the Search for the Pole But to Mark Out Country. IVY ASSOCIATED PRESS. New York, Dec. 14.-Nordenskjold and other members of the Antarctic expedition recently rescued by a gunboat sent to the Antarctic region by the Argentine govern sment, have embarked for home on the steamer Tijuca, says a Herald dispatch from Buenos Ayres, Argentina. The ex plorer appeared before the Argentine Geog raphy institute and gave a description of his voyage. The main object of his mission was not to make a record over other parties in ad vancing. southward, but to make a thor ough geographical and biological study of regions never before visited. What They Learned. As for the gographical results Dr. Nor denskjold said he had drawn the first map from the coast of Belgica canal to the six ty-sixth degree. Passing through I.ouis Philipeland, the explorers discovered land adjoining Louis Philipeland and King Oscarland. They found also that a canal existed between that land and Admiralty straight. All maps of that country, the explorer said, so far published, are inaccurate. There is no broad land, but only a narrow strip full of mountains. Of Granite Origin. The whole region is of granite origin, surmounted by straits in which fossils abound. In these fossils bones of ver tebracs and leaves of trees were discov ercd. The region greatly resembles that of Where Holiday Money Counts We have only room to give an outline of the various lines that compose our Holiday Stock, but each of these lines contains scores of gifts that are worthy of your attention.

GONE TO REWARO SHINING LIGHT IN BUTTE SOCIETY AND CLUB LIFE SUCCUMBS AFTER OPERATION. HER CAREER IN THIS CITY Broad-Natured, High Minded and Sin cere, She Made Friends Everywhere and Will Be Generally Missed. Mrs. Ignatius Donnelly passed away In death yesterday afternoon at 3 :.o o'clock in St. James hospital in this city. Mrs. Don.elly had been ill less than a week, having sung at the Elks' memorial services in Virginia City the Sunday pre vious. But when she returned to this city Monday she complained of feeling badly, and grew rapidly worse until l'uesday, when she was taken to the hospital. The symptoms seemed to point to ap pcndicitis, and the patient i.nsisted that TIlE LATE MRS. IGNATIUS DONNIELLY, an operation be performed, although her physician advised against it. Not Disease Supposed. Wednesday the operation was performed and, though successful, it was found that peritonitis was the cause of her intense suffering. For 24 hours there seemed no chance for her recovery, then a change came which gave the anxious watchers a faint hope that the splendidl health and youth of the patient would carry her through, and all that was possible was done by her physicians to save her life. But yesterday afternoon she began to sink rapidly and in a short time passed into that sleep which also frees the soul and gives rest to the form that enfolds it. Funeral Tomorrow. The funeral services will be held to morrow morning at to o'clock in St. Patrick's church in this city. Rev. Fathler l)eSiere will celebrate requiem high mass and the choir will sing the responses. Ihiterment will be in the Cat holic cemetery. The funeral cortege will leave the home In South Washington street and proceed to the church. The Deceased. Mrs. Donnelly was formerly Miss Marie Louise Kimball and was born in Wilson, New. bery county, New York. Sihe graduatied from the Ithica high school and was a student in Cornell university. She came West to St. Paul with her parents, where she was married to Dr. Ignatius D)onnelly in ld897. 'the for luwing year Dr. and Mrs. Dl)omI lly came to Butte, where they have recided since. In the live years Mrs. D)onnelly has made this city her homne she has taken an active .. in club and musical circles and has made sincere friends. She has been leader ;n trick's choir for several years and pos. rd a voice of great swenllless and power. vvW en a mere babe this gifted woman sang before she could talk and her voice hIas ever remained one of her chief charms and added to the pleasure of thousands of people, Mrs. D)onnelly was a memler of the Cathedral choir in St. Pautl before her marriage and has sung before large concert audiences In this and other cities of the state, and also in St. Paul and M inneapolis. Active Club Member. As a club member this splendid.learted wo. man was active and enthusiastic and never acknlowledged the word "fail" in anything she undertook to add to the glory or success of the work. It is less than one month ago that she planned the memnrial service for the late .Mrs. \'ethey which was pronounced one of the most beautiful ever held in tthis city. In the Home. As a member of the Iome circle Mrs. Don. nelly was all that one coutld wish. tIer nature was sunny, her mind strollg and her heart true and those who were fortunate enough to be counted within the inner circle as friends loved her devotedly. She was a loving wife and tender mother, and in the last moments she called these loved ones to her and spoke words of cheer to to them, and advised her hus. band regarding the care of their little sons. Besides the iimmediate family there is a mother and brother in this city and a sister in St. Patil who will miss her from out the daily life. The passing away of Mrs. Donnelly means a decided loss to lButte, as shle was one of those broad-natured women whose influence is always for good in the upbuilding of society. lier friends are counted by the hundreds and they sympathize with the husband andi two iht. tie sons, also with the mother, sister and brother who are left to miss her kindly love ano presence.

The text of the letter relatling to the gift is as follows: "I have causcd the Marquis li e (;ri Inahli, ubliject to youtr miajesty's pleasulre, to sign a cessioni of New t rleans and L.ouisianla to Spain. I had offered it to the British ill place of Florida, but they re fused it.
