The Forum
for a holiday remembrance from The
Manitoba Free Press, in the shape of an
exceedingly interesting little pamphlet,
entitled, "The Gopher's Tail." The good
will for which the enclosed caudal ap

though The Forum! dares not say "may
the tribe of gophers increase," it is
hoped that the spirit of true friendship
ascribed to the gopher by The Free.
Press will ever flourish though the
gophers be exterminated. The pamphJef
also contains in condensed form, valu

the tidings brought by the letter which
William Ziegl€r has received from An
thony Fials, in command of his north
polar expedition. The letter was writ
ten in' Barents sea, between Nova Zem
bla and Franz Josef land, and was
brought south by a sealer which Zeig
ler's steamer America happened to meet.
The expedition had been following the
edge of the ice pack west of Nova Zem
ibla for many miles vainly looking for
a lead through which to push north. It
vj^ about to turn westward, nearer to
Sptfzbergen, in the hope of finding an
operiiftg to. the north.
When the ic]e conditions are difficult in
Barents sea the fact is generally due
to prevailing easterly winds, which bring
great masses .of ice from the Arctic
ocean. This ice is piled up against the

had exactly this experience. The
vessel steaming north, succeeded in
pushing into the ice, but was caught
fast by the closing ice while still within
sight of Nova Zembla.
Her party had a miserable time as
they drifted slowly north through the
darkness of the following winter with
ice blocks piling up till they towered
fathoms high above jhe ship. It seem
ed certain at times that the vessel would
be crushed so the explorers built a house
011 the main floe, where coal, food and
other supplies were stored.
They drifted north and west all
through the winter of 1872-73 and
through the following summer until the
last of Atigust, when they finally saw the
outlines of a bold and rocky land rising
before them. Their toil and sufferings
had not all been in vain, for they now
knew that they had added a new land
to the known domain of the world.
Then came the great sledge journeys of
the spring of 1874, ^which revealed a
large ifert of the arcftipielago they had
discovered. The Tegetthof, however,
was never freed from the ice. She was
abandoned'on May

and the party
succeeded with terrible difficulty in dragr

BOX STALL.
Lady Constance Mackenzie, the British

she intended to visit the town of Alice
a wealthy ranch owner induced her to
visit his extensive place near there. Be
fore she started he telegraphed to his
manager: "Lady Machenzie coming to
rrtorrow. Make every preparation to
treat her royally." The manager has
never heard of her. lovely ladyship,' so
he concluded that some famous horse
inust be meant. Accordingly he fixed
top a nice clean box stall for the dis
tinguished stranger. Lady Mackenzie
laughed immoderately on hearing of the
mistake that had been made.
