It is dated "Aboard the Hans Egede,

were set to the problem of devising
a suitable outfit and before the end
of the long winter night we were
ready for the enterprise..
Plans were matured to force a new
route over Grinnell land and north
ward along its west coast out onto the
Polar sea.
Start Was Made February 19, 1908.
Soon after the polar midnight the
campaign opened. A few scouting
parties were sent over to the Amer

seek game haunts. Their mission was
only partly successful, because of the

ing 11 heavily loaded sleds, left Green
land shore and pushed westward over
the troubled ice of Smith sound.
The gloom of the long night was
relieved by only a few hours of day
light. The chill of winter was felt at
its worst.
As we crossed the heights of Elles
mere sound to the Pacific slope, the
temperature sank to 83 degrees
Fahrenheit below zero. Several dogs
were frozen and the men suffered se

With four men and 46 dogs and sup
plies for 80 days, the circumpolar
march was begun. Later two Eski

been reduced by the survival of the
fittest. The two best men and 26
dogs were picked for the final effort

There before us in an unknown line
of 460 miles lay our goal. The first
day's journey provided long marches
and we made encouraging progress. A
big lead which separated the land

Acording to Rev. Charropin it was
Germany's ambition to discover and
acquire the region about the north
pole. The well-knorwu Jesuit professor
is watching with the keenest interest
for details of the discovery.
"Dr. Cook has undoubtedly discov

by scientists," he declared. "It is
customary under such circumstances
to accept the statement and then ens

him will hardly be able to bear wit,

with him, however, voluminous notea
and data which he gathered. These
will be compared with those of fu

High Explosives Found in Coal Bunk,
era of Vessels of British Navy
Fourth Case of Kind.
London, Sept. 4.-The admiralty of
flee is in a state of consternation fol
lowing the latest discovery of agreat
amount of high explosives in the coal
in the bunkers of H. M. S. Forward,
one of the crack fighters of the navy.
Three similiar discoveries have
been made in the coal bunkers of
other vessels, and the secret investi
gation which was at once instituted
proved that the detonators found with
the explosives were not similar to
those used in coal mines, disproving
that theory that the explosive had
been accidentally left in the coal at
the mines. The fact that this is the
fourth occurrence of a similar nature,
too, has to the minds of the naval of
ficers, revealed a widespread plot to
destroy some of the finest ships in
England's navy. Positive instructions
have been rushed to every captain in
the British navy to look out for explo
sives in his coal bunkers and to run
down the criminals.

Robber Failed to Annex Cash Within
Easy Reach.
Monroe.-('. H. Goodwin's saloon at
the Iron Mountain terminal was en
tered and an attempt made to steal
a large sum of money he had in his
safe. The would-be robber was evi
dently a tenderfoot with little experi
ence, judging from his failure after
breaking into the saloon. To be pre
pared to cash checks for Iron Moun
tain employes after the pay car had
passed through, Mr. Goodwin had
drawn a large sum of money from the
bank. About $6,000 was placed in his
safe, and he left about $700 in his
pockets. He did not turn the combi
nation on his safe, merely closing the
door. After closing the saloon at rtd
night, he remained inside, and soon
fell asleep on a counter with a pistol
on each side of him. Presumably be
tween 2 and 3 o'clock the rear door
of the saloon was forced, the burglar
using a large file and a small piece
of wood. The burglar crept up on
Mr. Goodwin while he was still asleep
and took both of the pistols he had
by his side, after which he went to
the safte and opened it. How long he
I worked there no one knows, or what
tfrightened him away. The money
drawer showed signs of the attempt
to open it. The burglar was evident
ly an amateur, for with all the wea
Spons in his possession he could have
forced Mr. Goodwin to open the safe.
The $700 in cash in Mr. Gooadwin's
pocket was not touched, his only loss
being the two revolvers.
Underground Forest Located.
Baton Rouge.-A charred forest, 900
feet below the surface of the earth,
is what the Tucker Oil company has
found in sinking its test well in the
Deerford neighborhood.
The well has been sunk through a
peculiar formation. The particles of
the trees that have been bored
through by the drill were brought to
the capital city for exhibition.
The Tucker company has struck a
different formation altoget her from

Baton Rouge.-W. D. Ilunler of the

vil work in the southern stales, with
headquarters inD 1)allas, Tex., was a
recent visitor in Baton Rouge, and
spent a day in conferelnce with Wil
mon Newell, secretary of the Louisi
ana state crop pest coliliLission, dis
cussing co-operative work. There Is
a great amount of work that the
United States government and the
slate coninssion can do together in
this state. The boll weevil investiga
tion and the cattle tick eradication
have been done on the co-operative
system. Mr. Hunter says that the
weevil is now Imigrating. The prin
cipal new territory into which it will
go is eastern Mississippi. The hot
weather of last week was injurious
to the weevils and killed a great
many. Mr. Hunter discussed with
Mr. Newell the work which is being
done at Tallulah, where the United
States department, with the co-opera
tion of the state, has established a
boll weevil laboratory and is making
observations of the weevils in the riv
er bottom lands.
Agricultural High School Located.
Areadia.-Parish Superintendent E.
S. Richardson has just been notified
that the Bienville parish Agricultural
High school will be located at this
place. The parish board at its last
meeting appropriated the sum of
$1,200 for the purpose of establishing
an agricultural school in his parish,
but delegated Superintendent Harris
to locate the same, and he has just
been heard from, locating the school
at this place. It is proposed to have
the school under the supervision of
the parish superintendent, the prin
cipal of the school, E. II. Fiser, and
the parish board; to have a board of
visitors from each ward, having one
of the best farmers from each ward
to visit the school from time to time
and see the work of demonstration as
it goes on. There will be 10 of these
schools in the state and each school
must have at least 10 acres of land,
but it is proposed liere to buy a farmt
of 40 acres conveniently located to
the school, and about $800 has al
ready been subscribed by the citizens
of the town for the purpose of buying
the land and equipping it with up-to
date farm implements.
Fine Artesian Well Located.
Alexandria.-It is reported ihere that
the artesian well recently brought
