Dob Ford went to ('roe le early In the your,

It was a plain, ordinary mtnlns camp hell.

primary causo of tho disaster. The highest
hopes had boon nrousod by the enterprise.
The sehomo of exploration hnd been formulat

Australasia. Tho money required, amount
ing to thousands of dollars, had boon provided
by ono mnn HirThomas Eldor tho wealthiest
nnd most enthusiastic, promoter In Australia
of selencoond discovery. Kverythlns looked
bright for tho expedition when In April last

The work of exploring Inner Australia hnd
In tho past, devolved chiefly upon nine men. of

most Important routes of these tra oilers.
Three grent tracts of which nothing wns

thein nre vet of tho overland telegraph Tho
first unknown area to bo vl-lted was that be
tween the southern trnek of Olles and th it of J.
Forrest, and was about l.IIUO mile long from
east to wost and 3.10 milo wide, Aftor
crossing this strip Llnday was to turn
north to tho headwators of tho Murchlsnn
Itlvei. nnd tho work 111 way bnek east
throush the unknown region between tho
routes ol flllc nnd VVnrl urbin. estimated to
befKJOmlle Ions nnd '200 mile wide Tho
third unexplored district wheie I.lndsny wns
to end his labors, lies In what Is known a the
Northern Territory, m .stly botweon tlie over
land telosranh nnd the Vlctn-la Hlver. and is a
region of some 400 by 30u miles.
Th" routes HT(is the great Interior which
the map show could never hnve been fo'lowed
If It had n it been for tho Introduction of the
camel. Farly explorers u"d horsos ns bag
gage animal, nnd their success was poor
because water Is a scarce commodity In tho
great wastes. No Arctic enthusiast, no
evpioror of tropical Africa, ha-ov-r endured
m -re terrible suffering than has fallen to the
lot of Australian travellers. "The History of

upon for g od service.
After leaving the lino of tlio overland telo
graph. Lindsay' roil w irk began nt tho
Eierard raumeof high hills. He soon dl-cov-ored
that his nnluoiis enterprise had fnllcn
upon evil lime. Id all that region n it a drop
of w iter had fallen in two year. Sourcosof
water Hint had been discovered enrllerwcre
wholly dimd up. At tho start, however, tho
patty wore ublu to fill their witer bag, nnd
they sot nut bravely for the unknown wot.
Over tho pnrclid plain tho tolled, past I'lyth .
Ilange and on to Borrow Uange. Attholllyth
hills they obtained a small supply of water, I
but by the tlmo they rea-hod Borrow Rnnso I
the sltuntlon had become very sorlou. They
decide 1 wisely that to push Into the unknown
regions beyond would probably cost the lives
of all. It became now a hunt, not for gco
gini'lilcaldlsc.ivurle' but for water.
Over 4()u miles southwest was a remarkable
little oasis, dlscovotod by E. Gilo In 1875. Ho
ropnrted that thousands of cuttle uud shoop
could bo rnised In thl wrdnnt plnce. Thero '
was abundant animal life and a fine growth of
grn-slntho little area a few squate miles In
extent, and Oile cnllod the water ho found

rnrty struck out stralsht for these springs.
Vi'hnt was their horrjr, when tluy arrived
them with their cntnels In n perishing con

In thn history of exploration. For thiriy-flvo
