A- M.On the 10th of February, 1911.
-we commenced to work our way to toward
ward toward the south, from that day to the
11th of April establishing three de depots,
pots, depots, which in all contained a quan quantity
tity quantity of provisions of about 3,000 kilos.
One thousand six hundred kilos, in including
cluding including 1,100 kilos of seal meat, were
cached in 80 degrees, 700 kilos in 81

As no landmarks were to be seen,
these depots were marked with flags,

easterly and westerly directions.
The ground and the state of the
JJarrier were of the best, and special specially
ly specially well adapted to driving with dogs.
On Feb. 15. we had thus traveled
about 100 kilometers. The weight of
the sledges was 300 kilos, and the
number of dogs was six for each

was smooth and fine with no sastrugi

excellent ventilation system gave us
all the air we wanted.
- In direct communication with the
hut and due-out on the Barrier were
worKsnops, packing-rooms, cenars rof,
provisions, coal, wood, and oil, a plain
bath, a steam bath, and observatories.
Thus we had everything within doors

The sun left us on the 22d of April
and did not return until four months
later. The Winter was spent in ciiang ciiang-ing
ing ciiang-ing our whole outfit, which on the de depot
pot depot trips was found to be too clumsy
and solid for the smooth surface of
the Barrier. Besides this, as much
scientific work as possible was done,
and some astonishing meteorological
observations were taken.
Open Water All Winter.
There was very little snow, and
there was open water close by
throughout the Winter. For the same
reason higher temperature had been
expected, but it remained very low.
In five months there were observed
temperatures between minus 50 and 60r
degrees Celsius, (58 and 76 degrees be below
low below zero Fahrenheit), the lowest tem temperature
perature temperature on the 13th of August being
minus 59 degrees Celsius. It was
then calm. On the 1st of August the
temperature was minus 58 degrees
Celsius, and there were 6 meters of
wind. The mean temperature for the
year was minus 26 degrees Celsius
(14.8 below zero Fahrenheit.)
I had expected hurricane after hur hurricane,
ricane, hurricane, but I observed only two mod moderate

in all directions.
The sanitary conditions were of the
best all the Winter and when the sun
returned on the 24th of August he met
the men sound in mind and body
ready to set about the task that had
to be solved.
Already, the day before, we had
brought our sledges to the starting
place for our march toward the south.
Only in the beginning of September

it was a different matter. It could

the first part of the trip as easily as
possible, in order to give ourselves and
the dogs a rational training, and on
the 23d we made our depot In 80 de degrees

In spite of the dense fog an error
of two to three kilometers happened
only once in a while, but we were
caught by the fiagmarks, and found
these on our way without difficulty.
Having rested and fed the dogs on
all the seal meat they were able to
eat, we started again on the 26th,

not to drive more than 30 kilometers a

for our willing dogs worked their way
up. Further up, we met with some
small but very steep glaciers. Here
we had to harness 20 dogs to each
sledge and take the four sledges In
two turns. In some places it was so
steep that it was difficult enough to
use our skis.

therefore. Instead of plunging directly
over the spur of the range, she fol
lowed the familiar trail and .after she
had passed westward far beyond the
limits of the camp to the turning, she
decided, in accordance with that ut utterly
terly utterly irresponsible thing, a woman's
will, that she would not go down the
canon that day after all, but that she
would cross back over 'the range and
strike the river a few miles above the
camp and -go up the canon.
She had been up in that direction a
few times, but only for a short dis distance,
tance, distance, as the ascent above the camp
was very sharp, in fact for a little
more than a mile the brook was only
a succession of water fall; the best
fishing was below the camp and the
finest woods were deeper in the canon.
She suddenly concluded that she
would like to see what was up In that
unexplored section of the country and
so, with scarcely a momentary hesi hesitation,
tation, hesitation, she abandoned her former plan
and began the ascent of the range.
Upon decisions so lightly taken
what momentous consequences de depend?
pend? depend? Whether she should go up the
stream or down the stream, whether
she should follow the rivulet to its
source or descend it to its mouth,
was apparently a matter of little mo moment,
ment, moment, yet her whole life turned abso
lutely upon that decision. The idle
and unconsidered choice of the hour,
was frought with gravest possibilities.
Had that election been made with any
suspicion, with any foreknowledge, had
It come as the result of careful rea reasoning

it might have been understandable,
but an impulse, a whim, the vagrant
idea of an idle hour, the careless
chance of a moment, and behold! a
life is changed. On one side were
youth and innocence, freedom and
happiness, a happy day, a good rest
by the cheerful fire at night; on the
other, peril of life, struggle, love.

we must, but thank God we know it
not until it comes.
Nothing of this appeared to the girl
that bright sunny morning. Fate hid
in those mountains under the guise of
fancy. Lighthearted, carefree, fitted
with buoyant Joy over every fact of
life, she left the flowing water and
scaled the cliff beyond which in the
wilderness she was to find after all,
The ascent was longer and more
difficult and dangerous than she had
imagined when she first confronted it,
perhaps it was typical and foretold her
progress. More than once she had
to stop and carefully examine the face
of the canon wall for a practicable
trail; more than once she had to ex
rclse extremest care In her climb,
but she was a bold and fearless moun mountaineer
taineer mountaineer by this time and at last sur
mounting every difficulty she stood
panting slightly, a little tired, but
triumphant upon the summit.
The ground was rocky and broken,
the timber line was close above her
aad she judged that she must be sev
eral miles from the camp. The canon
was very crooked, she could see only
a few hundred yards of it in any dl
rectlon. She scanned her circum
scribed limited horizon eagerly for the
smoke from the great fire that they
always kept burning in the camp, but
not a sign of it was visible. She was
evidently a thousand feet above the
liver whence she had come. Her
standing ground was a rocky ridge
which fell away more gently on the
other side for perhaps two hundred
teet toward the same brook. She
could see through vistas in the trees
the uptossed peaks of the main range,
bare, chaotic, snow crowned, lonely,
The awe of the everlasting hills is
greater than that of heaving seas.
Save in the infrequent periods of calm,
the latter always moves; the moun mountains
tains mountains are the same for all time. The
ocean is quick, noisy, living; the
mountains are calm, still dead!
The girl stood as it were on the
roof of the world, a solitary human
being, so far as she knew, in the eye
of God above her. Ah, but the eyes
divine look long; and' see far: thinn
oeyond the human ken are all re-

could not discover them. The crest
that they were attempting lay in an another

spur. She was in the very heart of
the mountains; peaks and ridges rose
i all about her, so much so that the gen-
j eral direction of the great range was
I lost. She was at the center of a far
flung cocavity of crest and range. She
marked one towering point to the right
of her that rose massively grand above
11 the others. Tomorrow she would
climb to that high point and from its
lofty elevations look upon the heav heavens

complement of that stillness of the
soul in which men know God. There
had been no earthquake, no storm,
the mountains had not heaved beneath
her feet, the great and strong wind
had not passed by, the rocks had not
been rent and broken, yet Enid caught
herself listening aa if for a voice. The
thrill of majesty, silence, loneliness
was upon her. She stood one stands

were at the camp below; the others

she satisfied herself by careful obser observation

Her ablutions in common with
those of the rest of the campers had

bath day, with their mufflers "cut out."
making all the senseless and unneces unnecessary
sary unnecessary noise their lack of respect for re--ligious
services will permit of. v
While It is regrettable that so many
young men consider the automobile,
and street1 corners, preferable to
church services, as a character build builder,
er, builder, decency should compel them to re-'
spect the rights of those who think
I think this should be taken into
consideration by those interested In
the proposed new city ordinance to"
govern automobile drivers. In fact,
the use of "cut outs" on the main
streets should be forbidden by ordi ordinance
nance ordinance at all times for the pleasure and
comfort of the general public.
The writer owns a car and knows at
times, like many others, his driver
needs the wholesome effect of the city
ordinance along these lines.
