In the afternoon we went to the Alexander museum, a very beautiful building between two gardens, which was once the palace of the Grand Duke Michael Palovitch, and made by Alexander 111. into a national museum of arts. The pictures are all of the modern Russian school, some of them very fine, and among them many by Vere schagin—scenes of the war of ISI2 with Napoleon and a number of his small oriental paintings. Aft'er looking at them we walked to the Alexander Memorial church, built over the spot where he fell, which is preserved under a canopy of bronze, the rough paving stones upon which his blood was spilled looking very pathetic among so much gold and mosaic. The church, which cost 30,000,00 rubles, is most gorgeous in color, the interior being entirely of mosaic, and In the sanctuary, into which I was al lowed only to look, the silver cande labra and the icons are most costly.— St. Petersburg Letter to Vogue. Poor Relations. "If the people who are perfectly well able would take care of their poor relatives," said the curate at Trinity, "the church wouldn't have so much care on its shoulders. Did you see that woman who just went out? She is starving—actually starving. The doctor told her that the partial loss of her eyesight is due to the lack of food. Well, her husband is a wealthy Englishman, so wealthy that I am go ing to see a lawyer about writing him a letter that will bring him to his senses, I hope. He is a member of a prominent family that would hate such exposure as I shall threaten it with unless they take care of this wife of his. And did you see the poor wretch who is waiting outside in the anteroom for me to give him money for a bite to eat? His brother is a wealthy broker at No. 61 Wall street." —New York Press. Like Weeds in a Night. "Of course children outgrow most youthful vocations," said the observer. "Little girls grow too tall for cash girls, little boys spring up out of the size of bell hops in a night or two, it looks like, but the most pathetic specimen of sudden and untimely out growing is the flower boy who sells roses in the downtown Italian cafes, who one season stands hardly higher than the table, looking at you so wist fully out of big, sad Italian eyes that the money comes out of your pocket of itself, and the next season towers over you like a football player, all the sympathy you felt for the infant flower seller crushed by his gigantic size." Devices for a Sore Foot. The sufferer from enlarged joints, better known as a bunion, usually is in great discomfort in hot weather. There is a device that will give relief by protecting the bunion from rub bing of shoe. This is a simple piece of leather cut and bent in such a way that it fits smoothly over the portion ofj foot where the bunion is. The casing is lined with soft felt and an opening is provided for the enlarged joint, while the surrounding leather holds off the shoe. The protector is so shaped that there can be no rubbing from a bad fit. Feeding English School Children. For a year or more the Nottingham school authorities have provided meals for pupils whose parents were too poor to feed them sufficiently. About 500 children, representing some 200 families, are now being fed. Ar rangements are made with several restaurants to supply breakfasts, din ners, or both, to children showing proper vouchers. Each month approx imately 15,000 meals about equally divided between breakfasts and din ners are supplied, costing roundly $650 —about four cents a meal. One at Last for Old Diog. "If Diogenes is still hunting for an honest man I think I could give him nn address that might be worth look ing up," said one woman to another while waiting for a car. "I was riding tip Center street the other day and I saw an inconspicuous brass sign at the entrance of a big loft building, which said: 'M.

Peary, Commander U. S. N. PART H. Battle Harbor, Labrador, via Mar coni Wireless to Cape Ray, N. F., Sept. 9.—The steamer Roosevelt, bearing the North Polar expedition of the Peary Arctic club, parted company with the Erk and steamed out of Etah Ford late in the afternoon of August IS, 1908, set ting the ufcual course for Cape Sabine. The weather was dirty, with fresh southerly winds. We had on board 22 Eskimo men, 17 women and ten children, 226 dogs and some 40 odd ■walrus. We encountered the ice a short dis tance from the mouth of the harbor, but it was not closely packed and was negotiated by the Roosevelt without serious trouble. As we neared Cape Sa bine the weather cleared somewhat and we passed close by Three Voort Island and Cape Sabine, easily mak ing out with the naked eye the house at Hayes Harbor occupied by me in the winter of 1902-03. Meet Thick Weather and Ice. From Cape Sabine north there was so much water that we thought of set ting the lug sail before the southerly wind; but a little later a piece of ice to the northward stopped this. There was clean, open water to Cape Albert, and from there scattered ice to a point about abreast of Victoria Head, thick weather and dense ice bringing us some ten or fifteen miles away. If- S If v-4 ;: \ / i : '% , V; / y /7// Robert E. Peary. From here we drifted somewhat, and then got a slant to the northward out of the current. We worked a little further north, and stopped again for some hours, then we again worked westward by northward till we reached a series of iakes. coming to a stop a few miles south of the Windward's winter quarters at Cape Durville. From here, after some days, we slowly worked a way northeastward, through fog and broken ice of medium thickness throughout the night and the forenoon of the next day, only emerging into open water and clear weather off Cape Fraser. From this poit we had a clear run through the middle of Robeson channel, uninter rupted by either ice or fog to Lady Franklin bay. Here we encountered ice and fog, and while working along in search of a practicable opening, we were forced across to the coast at Thank God Harbor. The fog lifted there and enabled us to make out our whereabouts and we steamed north through series of lakes past Cape Lupton, and thence south ward toward Cape Union. A few miles off that cape wc were stopped by im practicable ice, and we drifted back south to Cape Union, where we stopped again. We lay for some time in a lake of water, and then, to prevent being drifted south again, took refuge under •;he north shore of Lincoln bay. in nearly the identical place where we had our unpleasant experience three years before. Here we remained for several days during a r'.'rlod of con stunt and at times violent northeast erly winds. CAMERON. COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1909. Twice Forced Aground. Twice we were forced aground by the heavy ice; we had our port quar ter rail broken, and a hole stove in the bulwarks; ami twice we pushed out in an attempt to get north, but we wore forced back each time to our pre carious shelter. Finally, on September 2, we squeezed around Cape Union and made fast in a shallow niche in the ice; but after some hours we made an other short run to Black Cape and hung to a grounded bit of ice. At last, a little after midnight of September 5, we passed through extremely heavy running ice, into a stream of open water, rounded Cape Itawson, and passed Cape Sheridan. Within a quarter of an hour of the same time we arrived three years be fore —7 a. m„ September s—we reach ed the open water extending beyond Cape Sheridan. We steamed tip to the end of it, and it appeared practi cble a! fust to reach Porter bay, near Cape Joseph Henley, which had for merly been my winter quarters. But the outlook being unsatisfac tory, I went back and put the Roose velt into the only opening in the floe, being barred close to the mouth of the Sheridan river, a little north of our position three years previous. The season was further advanced than in 1005; there was more snow on the ground and the new ice inside the floe bergs was much thicker. The work of discharging the ship was com menced at once and rushed to com pletion. The supplies and equipment were sledded across ice and sea and de posited on shore. A house and work shop were built of boards, covered with and filled with stores, and the ship was snug for winter, in shoal water, where she touched bottom at low tide. Call Settlement Hubbardville. This settlement on the stormy shores of the Arctic ocean was chris tened Hubbardville. Hunting parties were sent out on September 10 and a bear was brought in on the 12th and some deer later. On September 15 full work of trans porting supplies to Cape Columbia was inaugurated. Prof. Marvin, with Dr. Goodsall and Borup and the Eskimos, took 16 sled-loads of supplies to Cape Belknap and on the 27th the same party started with loads to Porter bay. The work of hunting and transporting supplies was prosecuted continuously by the members of the party, and the Eskimos until November 5, when the supplies of the spring sled trip had been removed from winter quarters and deposited in various places from Cape Colan to Cape Ccrlumbia. Ice Lists the poosevelt. In the latter part of September the movement of the ice subjected the ship to a pressure which listed her to port some eigiit or ten degrees and she didn't recover till the following spring. On October 1 I went on a hunt with Eskimos across the field and Parr bay, and the peninsula; made the circuit of Clements-Markham inlet, and return ed to the ship on the seventh day with 15 musk oxen, a bear and a deer. Later in October 1 repeated the trip, obtaining tive musk oxen, and other hunting parties brought in some 40 deer. Prof. MacMiilan went to Columbia in November and obtained a month of tidai observations, returning in De cember. In the December moon Borup moved the liecla depot to Cape Colan; Bartlett made a. hunting trip overland to Lake Hazen, and Hansen went to Clements-Markham inlet. In the Jan uary moon Marven crossed Robeson channel and went to Cape Bryant for tidal and meteorological observations. Bartlett crossed the channel and made the circuit of Newman bay and ex plored the peninsula. After he re turned Qoodsell went to Markhain in let and Borup toward Lake Hazen, in the interior, on hunting trips. Parties Leave Roosevelt. In the February moon Bartlett went to Cape Hecla and Goodsell moved some more supplies from Hecla to Cape Colan, and Borup went to Mark ham inlet on a hunting trip. On Feb ruary 1, liartlett left the Roosevelt with the division for Cape Columbia and Parr bay. Goodsell, Borup, Mac- Miilan and Hansen followed on succes sive days with their provisions. Mar ven returned from Bryants on Febru ary 17 and left for Cape Columbia Feb ruary 21. I brought up the rear Feb ruary 22. The total of all divisions leaving the Roosevelt were seven members of the party, 59 Eskimos, 140 dogs and 23 sledges. By February 27 such of the Cape Colan depot as was needed had been brought up to Cape Colum bia. the dogs were rested and double rationed and harnessed, and the sledges and other gear overhauled. Four months of northerly winds dur ing the fall and winter instead of southerly ones, as during the previous season, led me to expect less open weather than before, but a great deal of rough ice and I was prepared to hew a road through the jagged ice, for the first hundred miles or so, and then cross the big lead. On the last day of February, Bart lett. with his pioneer division, accom plished this, and his divison got away due north over the ice on March 1, The remainder of the party got away on Bartlett's trail, and I followed an hour later. The party now com prised seven members of expedition, 17 Eskimos, 133 dogs and 10 sledges. One Eskimo and seven dogs had gone to Pierce. A strong easterly wind, drifting snow, and temperature in minus marked our departure from the camp at Cape Columbia, which 1 had christened Crane City. Rough ice in the first march dam aged several sledg- sand smashed two beyond repair, the team going back to Columbia for other sledges in reserve there. We camped ten miles from Crane City. The easterly winds and low temperature continued. On the second march we passed the British record made by Markham in May, 1876 —82:20 —and were stopped by open water, which had been formed by the wind after Bartlett passed. In this march we negotiated the lead and reached Bartlett's third camp. liorup had gone back from here, but missed his way, owing to the faulting of tiie trial by the move ment of the ice. Marvin came back also for more fuel. The wind con tinued forming opeu water all about us. At the end of the fourth march we came upon Bartlett, who had stopped by a wide lake of open water. We re mained here from March 4 to March 11. At noon of March 5, the sun, red and shaped like a football by excessed reflections, just raised itself above the horizon for a few minutes and then disappeared. It was the first time I had seen it since October 10. I now began to feel a good deal of anxiety because there were no signs of Marvin and Borup, who should have been there for two days. Be sides, they had the alcohol und oil which were indispensable for two. We concluded that they had either lost their trail or were Imprisoned on an island by open water, probably the latter. Fortunately, on March 11, the lead was practicable, and leaving a note for Marvin and Borup to push on after us by forced marches, we pro ceeded northwest. The sounding of the lead gave 110 fathoms. During this march we crossed the 84th parallel and traversed a succes sion of Just frozen leads from a few hundred yards to a mile in width. This march was really simple. On the 14th we got free of the leads and came on decent going. While we were making camp a courier from Marvin came and informed us he was on the march in the rear. The temper ature was 59 below zero. The following morning, March 15, I sent Hansen with his division north to pioneer a trail for five marches, and I)r. Goodsell, according to the pro gram, started back to Cape Columbia. At night, Marvin and Borup came spinning in with their men and dogs, steaming in the bitter air like a squad ron of battleships. Their arrival re lieved me of anxiety as to our oil sup ply. In the morning I discovered that McMillan's foot was badly frostbitten. The mishap occurred two or three days before but McMillan had said nothing about it in the hope that it would come out all right. A glance at the injury showed me that the only thing was to send him back to Cape Columbia at once. The arrival of Mar vin and Borup enabled me to spare sufficient men and dogs togo back with him. This early loss of McMil lan was seriously disappointing to nie. He had a sledge all the way from Cape Columbia, and with his enthusi asm and the physique of the trained athlete, I had confidence in him for at least the 86tli parallel, but there was no alternative. The best sledges and dogs were se lected and the sledge loads brought up to the standard. The sounding gave a depth of 325 fathoms. We were over the continual shelf, and, as I had sur mised, the successive leads crossed in the fifth and sixth ma-c.hes composed the big lead and marked the continual shelf. On leaving the camp, the expe dition comprised 10 men, 12 sledges and 100 dogs. The next march was satisfactory as regards distance and character of go ing. In the latter part there were pro nounced movements in the ice, and au dible. Some leads were crossed, in one of which Borup and his team took a bath, and we were finally stopped by an impracticable lead opening in front of us. We camped in a temper ature of 50 below. At the end of two short marches we came upon Hansen and his party in camp mending their sledges. We devoted the remainder of the day to overhauling and mending sledges and breaking.up our damaged one for material. The next morning I put Marvin in the lead to pioneer the trail, with in struction to make two forced marches to bring up our average, which had been cut down by the last two short ones. Marvin carried out his instructions implicitly. A certain amount of young ice assisted in this. At the end of the tenth march, latitude Br>:'2o, Borup turned back In command of the second supporting party, having trav eled a distance equivalent to Nansen's distance from this far to his farthest north. I was sorry to lose this young Yale runner, with his enthusiasm and his pluck; he had led his heavy sledge over the floes in a way that com manded everyone's admiration, and would have made his father's eyes glisten. From this- point the expedition com prised 20 men, ten sledges and 70 dogs. It was necessary for Marvin to take sledge from here, and 1 put Bartlett and his division in advance to pioneer the trail. The continual daylight enabled ;.ie to make a moderation here that brought my advance and main parties closer together and reduced the likeli hood of their being separated by the open leads. After Bartlett left camp with Hen derson and their division Marvin and 1 remained with our division 24 hours and then followed. When we reached Bartlett's camp he broke out and went on and we turned in. By this arrangement the advance party was traveling while the main party- was asleep, and vice versa, and I was in toir-h with my advance party every 24 hours. 1 had no reason to complain of the going for the next two marches, though for a less experienced party, less adaptable sledges or less perfect equip ment it would have been an impossi bility. 1 At* our position at the end of the sec ond march, Marvin obtained a satisfac | tory sight for latitude and ciear weather, which placed us at 85:48. This result agreed very satisfac tory with the dead reckoning cf Marvin, Bartlett and myself. Up to this time the slight altitude of the sun had made it not worth while to waste time in observation. On the next -two marches, the go ing improved, and we covered good distances. In one other march a lead delayed us a few hours. We finally crossed on the ice cakes. The next day Bartlett let himself out and evi dently for a record, and reeled off 20 miles. Here Marvin observed another satisfactory sight on latitude which gave the position as 86:38, or beyond the farthest north of Nansen and Abruzzi and showed that we had cov ered fifty minutes of latitude in three marches. In these three marches we had passed the Norwegian record of 80:14 by Nansen and the Italian record of 86:34 by Cagni. From this point Marvin turned back in command in the third supporting party. My last words to him were, "Be careful of the leads, my boy." The party from this point comprised nine men, seven sledges and 60 dogs. The condition at this camp and the ap parently unbroken expanse of fairly level Ice in every direction, reminded me of Cagni's description of his farth est north, but I was not deceived by the apparently favorable notes, for avail able condition never continued for any length of time in the Arctic region. The north march was over good going, but for the first time since leaving land we experienced that condition, frequent over these ice fields, of a hazy atmos phere in which the light is equal every where. All relief is destroyed and it is impossible to see for any distance. We were obliged in this march to make a detour for an open lead. In the next march we encountered the heaviest and deepest snow of the journey, through a thick, smothering mantle. Lying in the depressions of heavy rubber ice I came upon Bart lett and his party fagged out and tem porarily discouraged by the heart rack ing of making a road. I knew what was the matter with them. They were simply spoiled by the good going on the previous days. I rallied them a bit, lightened their sleds, and they were encouraged again. During the next march we traveled through a thick drifting over the ice before a biting air from the northeast. At the end of the march we came upon the captain camped beside a wide open 'lead with a dense black water sky northwest north and northeast. We built our igloos and turned in, but he fore 1 had fallen asleep I was aroused out by a movement of the ice and found a startling condition of affairs; a rap idly widening road of black water ran but a few feet from our igloos. One of the teams of dogs had es caped by only a few feet from being dragged by the movement of the ice into the water. Another team had an equally narrow escape from being crushed by the ice blocks piled over them. The ice on the north side of the lead was moving around eastward, in the open water, and the side of the igloos threatened to follow suit. Kicking out the door of the igloos I called to the captain's men to pack their sledges and be ready for a quick dash when a favorable chance arrived. We hurried our things on our sledges, hitched the dogs, and moved onto a large floe west of us. Then, leaving one man to look out for the dogs and sleds, we hurried over to assist the captain's party to join us. A corner of their raft impigned on the ice on our side. For the rest of the night and during the next day the ice floes suffered the torment of the damned, surging together, opening out, groaning and grinding, while the open water belched black smoke like a prairie fire. The motion ceased, the open water closed, the atmosphere to north was cleared and we rushed across before the ice should open again. A succession of laterally open leads were crossed and after them some heavy old ice; and then we came to a layer of young 1 * ice, some of which buckled under our sledges, and this gave us a straightway of six miles to the north. Then caine more heavy old floes, covered with hard snow. This was a good long march. The next march was also a long one. It was Bartlett's last hike. He let himself out over a series of large old floes, steadily increasing in diame ter, and covered with hard snow. During the last few miles I walked beside him or in advance. He was very solemn, and anxious togo further, but the program was for him togo back from here in command of the fourth supporting party, and there were no supplies for an increase in the main party. In this march we encountered a high wind for the first time since the three days after we left Cape Colum bia. It was dead on our faces, bitter and insistent, but 1 had no reason to complain; it was better than an east erly or southerly wind, either of which would have set us adrift in open water, while this was closing up every lead in the open. This furnished an other advantage of my supporting par ties. True, by so doing it was press ing to the south the ice over which we traveled and so robbing us of a hundred miles of advantage. Robbed of Distance by Wind. We surmised we were on or near the 88th parallel unless the north wind had lost us several miles. The wind blew all night and all the next rip.y. At his camp, in tlie morning, Bartlett started to walk six miles tj the north to make sure of reaching the SSth parallel. While he was gone I selected the 40 best dogs in the out fit and had them doubled, and I picked out five of the best sledges and as signed them expressly to the captain's 1 party. I broke up the seventh for ma i terial with which to repair the others, and set the Eskimos at their work. Bartlett returned in time to take a satisfactory observation for latitude in clear weather, and obtained our position 87.48, and that showed con tinued north wind had robbed us of a number of miles of hard-earned dis tance. Bartlett Takes Observations. Bartlett took the observations here, as had Marvin five camps back, partly to save my eyes, but largely to give an independent record and de termination of our advance. The observations completed, about two copies were made, one for him and the other for me, Bartlett start ed on the back trail in command of my fourth supporting party, with two Eskimos, one sled and 18 dogs. When he left I felt for a moment pangs of regret as he disappeared in the distance, but it was only momen tary. My work was still ahead, not in the rear. Bartlett had done good ■work and had been a great help to me. Circumstances had thrust the brunt of the pioneering upon him instead of dividing it among several as I had planned. Bettered Italian Record. He had reason to take pride in the fact that he had bettered the Italian record by a degree and a quarter and had covered a distance equal to the entire distance of the Italian expedi tion from Franz Josef's Land to Cagni's farthest north. I had given Bartlett this position and post of honor in command of my fourth and last supporting party, and for two reasons—first, because of his magnifi cent handling of the Roosevelt; sec ond, because he had cheerfully stood between me and many trifling annoy ances on the expedition. Then there was a third reason. It seemed to me appropriate in view of the magnificent British record of Arc tic work, covering three centuries, that it should be a British subject who could boast of having been, next.to an American, nearest to the pole. ROBERT E. PEARY. PERRY NOT FORGOTTEN HIS GREAT BATTLE ON LAKE ERIE COMMEMMORATED. Oliver Hazard Perry, an American Youngster, Defeated the English Fleet 96 Years Ago. Cleveland, O. —Exactly 06 years ago on September 10 an Ameri can youngster, Oliver Hazard Perry by name, took a wallop at "Ma" Eng land that she has never since forgot ten. The episode transpired out on Lake Erie. Our coasts and borders were at stake. You can never tell. Had the battle gone against him, Clevelanders might be mailing their letters to-day with stamps bearing the portrait of Edward VII. England wanted to drive our ships from the Great Lakes. It took a Yankee kid lieutenant to compel her pompous offi cers to hand over their swords. Hu man blood literally dyed the water red. It was a desperate struggle, one |of the greatest fights in history. It [ saved a nation's honor and made a people's hero. A great sheet of leaping fire burst ing from the very crest of waves on the waters of Lake Erie furnished a spectacular finale to Cleveland's cele bration of Perry day. The burning of temporary crib No. 2, four miles out in the lake, fascinated tens of thou sands of people at night. The immense hulk containing more than 3,000,000 feet of lumber, satur ated with barrels upon barrels of oil and ifrar gasoline, was destroyed to the water's edge while 5,000 people, in boats of every kind and class, shouted themselves hoarse. From all along the shore spectators who could not crowd onto a boat watched the wonderful illumination. The crib, where during the con struction of Cleveland's great water works tunnel men sacrificed their lives to the dangers of the undertak ing, was a complete wreck within two hours after Vice Mayor Lapp touched it with a flaming torch. The structure had been carefully packed with oil waste by the men su pervising its demolition. Within half a,minute from the time the torch was applied the flames had licked their way to the very top of the pile. Within three minutes the crib was a crackling furnace of blistering white heat. The effect was as if the cupolas of 100 steel mills had been combined into one and transplanted onto the green waters. The heat could be felt over the water for a distance of more than 1,000 feet. Tugs and motor boats cruised around the great bonfire and then with the steamers Eastland and Lakeside, crowded to their utmost ca pacity, formed a naval parade about the roaring pile.
