Thk London Daily Telegram in a
recent iisuc says: "The relations be
tween the House of Lords and the
Hotiso of Commons aro becoming de
cidedly strained, to adopt the some
what affected phrase which has grown
into modern political literature The
Peers seem of látelo have become
possessed with a kind of frenzy for
opposing and thwarting every scheme
of legislation introduced by the Com
mons.'" Thk most remarkable of all the Ar
tie explorations has been that of
Lieutenant Suhvvatka,'of whose move
ments the world has been made aware
by a letter written from Iludsons Bay
by one of his party August 1st. UU
search iras neither for a northwest
nor northeast, passage. He had no
cernmercia! object in yiew. nor even
ill "interests of science,'' further
thaa these couid.be served by the re
covery of the records of the Franklin
xpflditien, and oven this was more
ia the interest of humane history than
of cience, for l he sake of science. As
! the records of the Franklin expe
dition, he has fairly proven that they
re past recovery. It is sorrowful to
reflect, that, while expeditious for the
rescue of Frankliu's party were being
tilted out a lato as 1852-8, and cveu
1851, the unfortunate members of that
expedition had porishwi from starva
tion in 1819. LieiPcnant. Scltwatka
parsed over I he some ground they
trvwed in their effort to escape,
and where they fell man by man in
their tracks from cold, scurvy and
starvation. What stories of terrible
agony are told by each of the gaunt
skeletons found by Schwatka's party!
Ilia expedition travelled three thou
sand tw hundred and fifty miles
overlaud, in the region to the north
of Hudson's Bay, occupying nearly a
wjiole year a spring summer autumn
and the whole of a long Artie wiuter.
They withstood an intensity of cold
almost beyond parallel, one series of
twenty seven daya marking 72 degrees
below the freezing point; one of 16
days markliigMOO degrees below, aud
on one day marking 103 degrees be
low. During this period the white
men ot the expedition lived in all res
pects as the Esquimaux do, and for
most of the time they were on the go
and at work.
Own A Home a3 Soon as You Can.
In one of his speeches Gen. George
Barstow speaking ot ''Homes" said :
"That philosophy which tells a man
to drift over the unccrtion life with
out a home is liko a ehip iu the open
sea, at the hazard of the s orni. A
mau owns m home is like u ship that
has arrived in port and is moored in
a safe harbor. One man should be no
moro content to live in u home that is
not his own, if lie can build one, than
one bird should take the risk of hatch
in C iu another one's nest ; and for
my own part I would rather be able
to own a cottage than to hire a palace.
I would say to every in:in, buy a home
if you can, and own it. If a windfall
han come to you, buy a home. Do not
let any one tempt you to put all your
earnings back into the pool. Take
out enough to buy a home, and buy
It. Put tho rest back if you will,
gamble on it if you must, but buy the
homo tirst. liny it, and sell it not.
Then the rosna that bloom there are
yours ; 'h clematis aud jasmine that
climb upon the porch are yours.
You have planted thtun and seen
thorn jrov. When you are at work
upon them you are not working for
others. If there are childrcu, there
are flowers within the house aud
without. Buv a home."
