selves for this purpose, Is brought
out in Scott's diary, published here
today. .
"Shall Die In Our Tracks."

This Is the entry In Scott's diary for

Captain Scott In tho last entry but one

Last Thought of Families.
The last lines of the diary were writ

His feet were frozen, mortification was
spreading upward and he was suffering
acute mental distress, but the lines
were penciled with masculine firmness,
and there was no trsmor showing on
the page as he wrote:
"The end cannot be far. It seems a
pity, but I do not think I can write

In the diary as published, a number
or parts' of it are made public for the
first tlmo. and light Is thrown on many
points hitherto obscure. The part that
the collapse of Petty Officer Evans!
and Captain Oates played in the failure
of the expedition Is told. Evans was a
