OX BOARD THE SCHOONER HER MAN, via Nome. September 11.— Buffeted by terrific Arctic storm.s for two weeks, the schooner Herman, carrying the Borneo expedition to Wrangel Island, returned to Nome Saturday, September 6. and was off again Sunday for the North, to take off Charles Wells from his Wrangel outpost north of Siberia. Huna Into Severe Gale. The day following the Herman's previous departure from Nome on August 23, she ran into a severe gale near the ceeded in anchoring on the lee of the little Diomede. That night, how ever, the wind increased to an 80- mile gale. The Herman's largest anchor snapped like a fishhook. The ship raced down into Bering Sea at 7 knots an hour with neither power nor sails. Monday evening tile gale lessened and we were able to beat back to shelter in the lee of South Head near St. Lawrence Bay. Siberia, where \\. lay for two days. The following day we rounded Ea>st Cape, the easternmost point of Asia, and headed into the Arctic Ocean. There was a heavy swell coming in from the north, indicating that a great storm still raged in that direc tion. Off Cape Serdze we encountered heavy ice and thousands of walrus. Hundred Bull Walrus Slain. In spite of the heavy swell and continued fogs the Eskimo hunters succeeded in killing a hundred huge bull walrus, which were duly loaded aboard and skinned. In returning to Nome Capt. Bane ascertained that the Herman was not needed to carry supplies to Point Barrow. When we arrived at Nome we found the shooner Boxer had arrived the day previously from Barrow with the crews of the wrecked schooner Arctic and the Bady Kinderaley. We left Nome again Sunday noon, the weather the best for over a month, and with every prospect of getting through to Wrangel Island.

S. Away, Bishop Tells League By the Associated Press. GENEVA, September 11.—Bishop Fan S. Noli, premier of Albania, de livered before the assembly of the league of Nations yesterday an ironical address of world political conditions, which evoked a great deal of laughter and some mild demonstrations of disapproval. The premier, who was educated in Harvard University, talked for the most part about the United States. He described Boston as a city situated somewhere in Ireland, "full of O'Connors, O'Connells and Fitz geralds, all of them good talkers, ( who with other Irishmen do all the , talking In American electoral cam- ' palgns.” Bishop Noli wished the Irish re • public had brought to Geneva some ' brave orators who might '“talk the assembly to death about peace." “There is no wrinder," he con tinued, “why the Americans, Ger mans and Russians are not anxious to join the League of Nations. They do not appreciate our speeches. They know better.’’ 1 Bishop Noli said the assembly was nothing but “words, words, words—which means in plain Eng lish, hot air.’’ He said that everything the league did sooner or later was hound to go into the dead files of the secretariat, and he argued that in r-» fi rinrn fi n pipipip JIJUIJIJ UUJUUUUUI E You Can Forget —your “Electrol” once It has been started. —lt’s fully automatic—can be set Eto cive any desired degree of heat, and DOES IT. r —AUTOMATIC X —OIL HEATERS 1 —Burn Cheapest Grade Fuel Oil — RAre Practically Noiseless in ! operation—Are approved by the National Board of Underwriters.
