the daring Frenchman set out from
the fort at Montreal and plunged Into
the wilderness, intent upon discovering
that narrow sea which was supposed
to separate America and China.
During the mouths and years that
ollowed La Verendrye and his gallant
boys triumphed over a multitude of
obstacles. Some of his men were
massacred by hostile Indians, others
fell victims to disease, exposure and
accident, and mutinies were frequent.

was reached, but La Verendrye was

The roof of the little boxlike hotel in
Colima, capital of the state of Colima.
In Mexico, was freshly drenched with
water in a vain effort to fight off some
of September's heat. I think there were
eighteen of us gathered there in the
cool, gray night. The almost silent
town lay like a black and white check
erboard at our feet.
Twenty miles away, across a valley
still green wiS the rains of summer,
rose a conical mountain, almost soli
tary. Even by night it looked sinister;
by day it was terrible, with its barren,
lava coated sides, its gas exuding cone
shunned even by the vultures which
haunted mountain and plain. It was
the volcano of Colima, the "Old Faith Faithful"

mountain, which we knew was a pot of
molten stone, twenty miles away. The
bubble, so dark that we could see it
plainly, swelled like a growing puffball
and thenr pushed out from below.-rose
like a giant umbrella, with incredible
speed, into the sky. Behind it came a
straight tubular column of smoke, such
smoke as that of which the bubble was
made, black and thick and ominous.

I gazed at it spellbound as the light

What, For Instance, Guides the Vine In
Finding Its Support?
A plant that actually goes Insect
hunting Is among the latest of the sci scientific
entific scientific discoveries. It is known as the
sundew. Its leaves, covered with ten tentacles,
tacles, tentacles, close In upon a fly the moment
U touches them and slowly strangle it.
This has long been familiar to the
naturalists, but it now develops that
the plant does not passively wait for

upper shoot of the vine bends In the

observation holds more or less true
with all climbing plants. v
Vegetation of various kinds sends
roots through distances, sometimes to
be measured in yards, that they may
reach soil or water below. Science is
asking If the sundew knows that tbe
fly is near.
Has the vine a method of detecting
the proximity of Its support?
Does the plant so situated that its

It Looked Like an Impossible Putt, but
Travis Mastered It.
VI once saw Walter J. Travis, the
veteran, sink the most wou--ful putt
It has ever been my lot to .iiiess
says Jerome D, Travern lu the Ameri American
can American Magazine.
"The occasion was a Metroimlltiin
championship at Garden City, with
Travis and Wilder of Boston In a hard
match! Travis was four down nnd four
to play, hanging on by a thin t!pad of
hope. But Travis settled down uI won
the fifteenth and sixteenth boles, leav leaving
ing leaving himself only two down, with two
holes left- Lie had to win iHitb. r

seemed to be fading out at tut evtn evtn-teenth

pressions. expressions. For all Wilder needed was a
half here to win the match. And after
playing three shots he was only four
feet from the er.p. And Travis on his
third shot was barely on the green,
thirty feet away.
"The battle seemed to be over beyond
any hope, for Travis was not only thir thirty
ty thirty feet away, but be had one of the
trickiest and hardest preens on the
course to putt over. And even If he
made the putt the odds were that Wil Wilder

a straight putt. There were two derid derided
ed derided breaks In the s!oie of the-green. one
to the left and one to the right. And
between these two mounded slopes
there was a narrow gap between
knolls. It was !mixsslble to follow the
line of this gap. because the cup was
set back of a knoll to the left, blocking
entrance in that direction.
"Lie had only one way to go. and that
was to take the mounded slope to the
right. The Old Man walked up to the
cup and studied the line carefully from
that angle. Then be walked slowly
back, studying the. lay of the ground
along the line he must take, lie bad to
figure all this tricky slope to the Inch
and to the inch for thirty feet. For any
slight break off the right line would
probably put him three or four feet
away at the finish.
"After a careful survey he walked
back to his putt and with a free tap
sent the ball spinning alon?:. It took

and It then plumed squarely Into the

from a decided downhill spiu where the
green sloped off abruptly toward the
hole- I've never seen another like It.
