BOUNDARY SURVEY.
Mr. 0. A. Bigger, of the Astronomical Department of the Dominion
Government lias just returned from
the North. He has been in charge
nf the Held work in connection with
the survey of the Alaskan Boundary
line, and is now hound east to Ot/-
lawn. The remainder of the parties
will return to Vancouver in a couple
of weeks.
"Very satisfactory work was done
this season," Mr. Bigger told a
News 'Advertiser reporter at (Vancouver. "The Canadian party worked up the Jvlehitii River, and the
Americans up the Stikinc, both ol
which rivers join. As Prof. King
has already snid. progress is necessarily slow, because of the clearing
of tlie 2(l-foot wide strip through the

very wet and cold and Irosts were
felt every month this summer.
The Iirst portions ol the country
to be astronomically surveyed will
Ire those in which there is traffic,, and
where it is necessary that the people there or passing through should
have a knowledge of the line which
separate the two countries. After
that tlie mountainous parts will be
attended to.
Our party has various divisions,
one of them being the section which
has charge of the camera. work".
With tlie development of the camera
ami its application to survey work,
it is possible to get a very accurate
map of the topography of the country, which is sufficient for all purposes, except, ol course, railway
building and when minute information is required. Moreover, a great
amount ol lime is saved."
Mr.   Digger co-operated    with Mr

PURITY IN
PUBLIC LIFE
London, Out. 111.—Editorial articles in this morning's newspapers,
choose expressions ranging from regret td indignation at the election
of Harry Marks to Parliament in
the Thaunet Isle division. The Conservative Standard says: "In the
interests of purity of public life wc
hope belore Marks is allowed to take
any active part in parliamentary
work he will be afforded an opportunity by the House of Commons to
clear his character of the grave apprehensions east upon it by a judge
of the Supreme Court."

The Case Arising Out cf the
Chinese Theatre Murder in

out of the murder oi Man (Juan .. in

A MOSQUE FOR LONDON
A mosque lor London's 2,000 Mohammedans will shortly be built in
central London. For years past,
Mohammedan missionaries have been
trying to spread a knowledge ol Islamic teachings, but their ef
have been handicapped for want of
a central mosque.
Robert Williams, F' R. I. B. A.,
received a commission from, a Turkish pasha to pecparc the
plans, which have been despatched
to Constantinople for the approval
of a committee of pasha*. Ultimately they will be submitted to the
Sultan.
"The mosque," explained the architect to a press representative, I'is
intended for all Mohammedans in
London—Indian Egyptian, Afghan,
and Persian, as well as Turkish for
King Edward VII., it must lie remembered, rules over more Mohammedan subjects llia.li any other sovereign."
It will be an imposing structure,
in led and yellow stone. The decor-
alive work will bo carried out in
marble and jasper, and a broad
flight of steps in marble, granite
and jasper will lead to the great
central entrance.
A graceful minaret, surrounded by
galleries whence the muezzin will
call "The faithful" in London to
worship, is tt notable feature of the
design. The minaret is surmounted
by a cupola, aud the golden crescent
will he 20   feet from the ground.

THE FIRE AT
ZINKOVITCH'S
Was Apparently of Incendiary
Origin but Culprit Not Dis'
covered at Inquiry
The talcing of evidence at the inquiry before Clovcrnintnc Agent
Thompson into the fire at P. Z'lnk-
ovitch's house was finished on Saturday. The lire which look place on
the evening of September 22nd, was
apparently of Incendiary origin, witnesses proving that lire broke out in
two separate places on the roof and
also under one corner of the house.
Zlnkovitch was away at work at
the time and his wife snid she was at
a neighbor's and knew nothing about
how the blaze started. Other evidence showed clearly that there were
kindling sticks soaked with coal-oil
at the spot where there was fire at
the corner of the house, hut it did
not get well under headway before
neighbors noticed it ami extinguished the blaze.
Under the circumstances the evidence which has been taken will he
forwarded to the Provincial Secretary and it will then devolve upon
the government to see what can he
done towards finding out if possible
tlie culprit anil taking criminal action.

St. Petersburg, Oct. 10. - At a

HOW ABOUT NEUTRALITY?
San Francisco, Oal., Oct. III.—Contraband of war is to lie carried by
the Japanese steamer America when
she sails Irom this port for the Orient. The vessel will go crammed
to her hatchcombings will) freight,
the most ol which will lie carried at
the risk ol the Japanese government
Material to make powder* in large
quantities will lie included iu the cargo of the steamer and it is also stated that she will carry a large shipment of steel. If the steamer Texan, now In lieattle cannot carry
the sections ol the torpedo boats
that arc said to he now on their
May Irom the East, the America
may be called upon to carry part
of this shipment
Field Headquarters of Second Japanese Army, Oct. 1(1.—Via Fusan, (1
p.m.)—According to Chinese reports
the Russians arc building heavy
caelhworks outside of Mukden.
It is believed that they intend making a strong stand. They are also
fortifying Iron Mountain, near Tie
Pass. Many Russian soldiers are
said .to he wearing Chinese clothing
indicating tlizt their winter clothing
lias not arrived.
FEEL AT HOME.
Mukden, Oct. 8.—(Delayed.)—A European, who has just arrived from
New C'hwahg, says supplies of foodstuffs and war material are pouring into that port, several vessels,
unloading daily. Many merchants
are arriving Irom Japan, and Japanese theatrical perlormers ami
many Cleislia gorls are there already
A vessel load of slglit-seers has arrived hut the Japanese staff would
not permit (lie vessel to land. She
remained a lew days iu tbe roadstead and departed. The Japanese
are confident the Russians never
will he aide to lake New Cliwang,
and they are making Ihe port the
base of subsislance of the whole
Japanese army in Manchuria.
TIME TO ADVANCE,
St. Petersburg, Oct. 10.- Coni-
nienliiig upon Ihc order ol the day
issued liy Gen. Kuropatkin on Sunday, the Novno Vremya expresses
unqualified confidence in that Com-'
inander, and says: "This is the
man, who at the beginning of the
war said, 'Patience, patience and
again patience.' " We awaited in
obedience for his words, "'Now the
time has come lo turn southward."
Kuropatkin is going through to save
his comrades at Port Arthur though
be may have to defeat [our opposing
armies to do so, but our soldiers
[are happy. It is not nature to desire Russian troops to retire.
BOXERS SPREADING
Shanghai, Pet. 10.—Chinese Government officials are reported to be
purchasing here foreign provisions,
which are to be shipped to Tien
Tsing. The purpose for which the
provisions are being purchased is
unknown. Well informed Chinese
express the opinion that Miey are
intended for the Russian army.
A telegram from Eweilin, in the
province of Kwangsi, in southern
China says that Chinese troops have
defeated & large body ol rebels at
Loclicngsliien after a three days'
fight. The Boxer movement is reported to be spreading in the north
em provinces.
EVADING BLOCKADE
Naples, Oct. lO.-The Corriere
Del Mattino, to-day published an interview with M. Verhliinsky, inspector general of the Russo-C'hinese
Navigation Company, who escaped
from . Port Arthur on a junk and
who has just arrived here- He reiterates the statement that Port Arthur will never fall through hunger,
stoics of provisions accumulated before the war being immense and
practically not yet touched, while
Chinese junks are continuing a daily
service, thus replenishing the supplies. The junks, M. Vcrhlunsky
adds, escape the vigilance of H-lie Japanese fleet, by following the irregul-
aiilies of the coast. Port Arthur,
>vhen he left there, had a garrison
of 23,00d soldiers and 10,000 sailors.
WHEAT GROWN
IN BRITAIN
The government returns oi the acreage under crops in Great Britain
were first collected and published in
Hie year 1808. The extent of land
under wheat was then returned at
.'1,052,125 acres.
Never before, however, has tlie area under wdieat in the island ticcii returned at so low a level as 1,075,-
281 acres, which is Hie outcome of
the returns officially collected
throughout 1804, a decrease of thirteen percent from the year before. In
oilier words, one-eighth ol the acreage of wheat a year ago has been
swept away in a single season. This
loss is nearly equal to the land area
of the County of Huntingdon or ot
Ihe County of Midlothian.
Owing lo tlie unpreccdeiilly wet
weal her of last Octoher, aud tlie extremely unfavorable conditions for
autumn sowing whicli ensued, a reduction in the wheal acreage was regarded as inevitable; bill Ibis is Ihe
first time on which it has tieen possible to express tlie reduction in Concrete terms. In the year 18011 the
Iggrcgato wheat area ol Great Britain was nearly equal lo the entire
land area of Ihe north riding alone,
whilst it would easily lie included in-
the west riding. Moreover, the present wheal area is less (ban the land
area of each of such counties as bin-
coin, Devon, and Perth, nnd is but
slighlly greater (ban the hind area
of such counties as Norfolk, Northumberland and Aberdeen. It thus
appears thai all Ihe wheal- fields oi
Great. Britain could he crowded into
such a county as, for instance, Devonshire alone, and Still leave space.

London,    Oct.  10.—John  llollings-
head, nullior and journalist, Is-dead.
He was horn in 1827,
EYESTRAIN IN SCHOOL.
Forty per cent' of defective eyes,
on the average, in the 1200 pupils
examined in the Columbus, Ohio,
high schools—such is the report of
Dr. Timbermun, in the Ohio Sani-
lary Biilleiin. In one school ol 18-1
pupils', 103 had defective eyes, a percentage of 50. Three things concerning this reporti says American
Medicine, must bo remembered: 1.
Tiie test \va3 one of simple vision,
without a mydriatic, and if there
was any doubt we gave the benefit
of the doubt to the normal eye always. 2. The redoxes and morbid
resells of eyestrain are often worse
when the accomodation can temporarily overcome the visual defect in
ametropia. 3. No attention was
given in the tests, cither to local
ocular disease or to the more important reflexes of eyestrain to the nervous and assimilated systems. Taking these facts into consideration,
there should be careful weighing of
the lessons to be derived from Dr.
Tinihcrman's statistics, and still
more serious thinking over the testimony of Dr. Chapman, who in the
discussion said:
"■'llie schoolchildren arc being
crowded until they are sick— they
become sick from worry and overwork. I have had many children
|come to my office. They have had
headaches all the time. Their parents say they get up with headaches.
They go to lied with headaches. And
they conclude that the stomach of
the child is out of order and they
send it to me and ask me to give it
something that will relieve il from
this stomach trouble. There arc a
number of physicians here and I
need hut call your attention to the
(act and ask you how many limes
you have looked at the child and
snid: 'There is something the matter with your eyes.' "
Those who sneer at and belittle
the role ol eyestrain arc callous
dullards, nnd cither ignornncc or
cruelty in a medical man Is Inexcusable, When combined, politeness
hesitates to use the prober word in
speaking ol them. LADYSMITH   LEDGER

REFORM IN THE    ARMY.
According lo the statement of the.
Secretary of War at a Sheffield meeting on Thursday last, the War Office
-has iailed to learn thoroughly      the
enormously    expensive lesson taught
in the Doer war, hut    is    apparently so    wedded to tradition and eus-
.. loin that those entrusted with    the
,'grave task oi keeping Britain's.lighting force in condition arc not keenly
alive to the requirements ol the moil-
'crn method of waging warfare. This
Js a most serious charge coming 'from
so high a source, for Mr. Forstcr as
the   ministerial    head of Ihe army,
must have had the best opportunities
ol knowing  the inner workings     ol
the whole army system.  Apparently
the curse ol social influence and antagonism   to     new melliods has not
been overcome,  for his remarks that
the country does not want an army
"for sport,  for social opportunities,
or for recreation, but an army which
is ready lo face a foreign army   and
defeat it," proves that the old regime dies hard and is still striving to
block the     wheels ol progress      in
the futile endeavor to keep the army
as a soil of social preserve.      The
first blow     al this stale of things
was struck in the "Seventies'-' when
the purchase of commissions was abolished.   The substitution ol competitive examinations brought about a
certain measure of reform, hut   the
Boer     war    uncovered a number of
weak spots    in the system, showing
that     there stiil existed in ccrtaia
who    were not ol the exclusive set
quarters a prejudice against officers
who imagined that Ihc earth and ihe
fullness thereof were for their pecu-
i liar benefit and that the rest oi uian-
•   kind did not count for much in   the
i   general plan of nature.   However,   a
great many reforms have been oltcct-
'  cd.   The Imperial army officer of today must keep up with the changes
and   improvements that are so eon-
aitantly taking place in llie methods
ol    modern    fighting.      There is no
longer any room for drones; and unless a man goes into Hie army as a
serious profession, and gives his boat
attention to improving himself in his
duties,   he must he cast aside    lor
better material,   It might he noted
that very lately a great  reform has
taken.place In the methods of    the
staff training for die army, the   ex
■ nminalioiis having been made    more
thorough     and    practical;    while at
Sandhurst    and    Woolfwlch n lot of
useless lumber has been thrown out
of the   courses ol study and belt

How Many People In Ladysmith?
.'" nvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
tlie Laily Ledger. It has been suggested by some of the
business men that it would be of interest and value to the
community to know how many people live iu Ladysmith
and immediate vicinity, 'ihis means all of the actual residents within half a mile of the postoffice in Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write down a gues« of the number of
people our census, whicli will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card iu the envelope and seal
it up; either hand it to the canvasser or leave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be in during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
The envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
given:
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact number of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) $20.00 in gold.
2. The person coming second nearest, jf 10.00 in gold.
3. The person coming third nearest, $5.00 iu gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely fair. No person in any
way connected with the canvas's will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

HIS ONE HIT
By RICHARD KANN
LCopj-rlglit, imB, by the
8. S. MoChivu Company
Hampton had been sitting there In ■
perspiration half an hour then. lie had
come In before t o'clock, taken half an
gour for his makeup and had thirty
Minutes to put lu on his part before
his dressing room 'mate arrived. Of
couma every one knew he never would
get «K ill* text. Hadn't they heard him
at the afternoon rehearsal, when ha
made every, one of them ask who he
.avas because Itv was Idler perfect, and
they knew ho^badn't been given the
part Until that memiugj
Temple had been taken suddenly HI
and wired that he cauldn't go on tbat
night. When you know-bis part was
thirty-two sides and he had no understudy, you may imagine hovr the other
principals felt when the stage manager
Introduced old Hampton and explained
that be would play Temple's part In tlw
evening.
Hampton had a queer stride thai
ildn't help their pence of mind, but the
•Hit  SAW   THIi   NAME   ON   TI1W   OUTBIDS

first tluie over the purls be showed
that he knew what the center of the
stage was, nnd bo got It every time,
and when they discovered that be knew
oil Ihe business, nnd Temple's business
ut thai, they naturally wondered where
Buscoe had found iilm.
Hut Buscoe wns not a talkative stage
manager. He sat at the prompt table
aud held the book, but he hod nothing
to say to Hampton. He bad evidently
snid it before be called the first act.
None In the company knew htm. A
man with a sick wile on his hands and
five years of oue ulght stands on tlie
road ns Ids latest record usually Isn't
on Intimate terms with n picked cast
for n big metropolitan revival. But
Buscoe knew him. Buscoe aud Hamilton had done one nights together more
tbnn five years ago, and Buscoe knew
thnt Hamilton's oue ambition was to
play Temple's part, just ns well ns
Hampton knew that Buscoo's hope was
n trip to Loiidiui to stngc some big
production or other. Naturally enough,
when Tcmplewlred that he couldn't go
on that night, Buscoe had telephoned
to the agencies, located Hampton aud
two hours afterward bunded blm Temple's pnrt
Hampton took tbe pnrt homo and
laid It on Jennie's bed. Then lie cried.
Jennie hnd been crying a good deal
anyway, because she Colt herself slipping nway from the world. She saw
tlie name on the outside cover of the
pnrt. She know that the biggest revival of the season wns bchig played
nnd thnt Temple bad made tho lilt of
his career by simply reading thnt thirty-two pages of manuscript. She had
Sever censed to be sure (hat If Dick
Over' bad u cbnnee be would do the
Mine thing. It mount a good deal to a
dek woman who hadn't much longer
to wall for blm to get tho pnrt.
And it meant n good denl to blm, too,
since 'lie had rehearsed It with her
timed Innumerable In the certain hopr>
lluil mine (lay be would be given n
chance to play It. Five years of one
nlgbls didn't scorn long just then. Tomorrow, after he hnd Hindu bis one hit.
It would be almost a Joke. After they
had finished crying Dick kissed ber,
and Uiey both laughed, Dick with a
laugh bo hnd lined for two seasons le
"Tho Hed.Sciirf."
Then be propped her up in the bed,
handed to her the manuscript nnd ask.
ed for the first cue. So the rehearsal
thnt Hampton bud thnt afternoon nl
tbe theater wasn't by any menus tht
first oi,5
Hampton was fairly startled when
tbe Overture r-egun. It may have been
Itecniisc on the one nights he wns ac-
tiatnincd to two violins and a plane
oi maybe only to n piano. Then h«
puvltd himself togeil ir, nnd when tin
boy called "placek" he stood In the sld«
entrance ns cool as the prompter and
walled for the drop to go on. The next
minute he heard his cue. Well, whnl
happened after thnt no one has evel
tried lo explain. No ono In Ihe company ever thought enough about It tc
think an explnmitlon necessary, and ot
Course Hampton couldn't explain It II
ho tried.
The one big scene that Temple hnd
nl the end of the third net fell flat
played by Hampton. It went over Ihe
lUidienee'H bead or was thrown too directly Into their leelb. Anywny when
Hamilton made bin exit there was nc
upplnuso occept IrolU tbe hack ui tbi
house, and Hampton had been In tin
business long enough to know what
thnt meant. Even on the one ulgbts
the ushers were worthy of their hire.
Temple had been getting, at least
three curtain calls at every performance. Everybody knew that. Temple
used- to say that a phonograph would
get n round on his last speech. And
Hampton, after ten years ot work, got
the ushers.
Every oue In the company wns sure
he was pleased since he got through it
without spoiling the scene, since he had
had but one rehearsal.' And Buscoe
was not to be found, for the first time
In his life, when the drop went up on
tho fourth net.
Hampton wasn't on In tho fourth,
but he took such a time to get into his
street clothes that he wasn't ready to
leave until the others were, nnd ho
went out with his hat In his band.
Grasping the cold iron mil, he guided
himself to the blaze of electric lights
that marked the lobby entrance and
scorned to be spelling out the name up*
ou it. Thnt was the last time the com-
puny saw him.
If it hadn't been for Mrs. Bowler,
|om whom Hampton rented his little
lit, and if It hadn't Iwn thnt flats
tiro built with thin walls, the company
would have altogether forgotten about
Hampton. But Mrs. Bowler knew Buscoe, and she came down the next afternoon with a message. Mrs. Jennie
Hampton was dead.
Mrs. Bowler had heard Hampton
come lu about bait past 11 the night
before. She bad heard the doctor,
who was still there, tell him something. Then It became so quiet that
she fell asleep, although she had intended to remain awake and oll'cr
what help she could If anything happened. She didn't awaken until the
sun crept through the window In the
morning. Still It. was quiet in the next
room.
Then, she said, Hampton began to
speak. Mrs, Bowler couldn't repeat
whnt he snid, but she knew that he
wns explaining about tho play the
night before—how, at the end of the
third act, the audience called for him;
how they called for hlra until the cur-
tain wns raised and he bowed to thcin;
how be took tho leading woman by tho
hand and led her to the footlights, and
finally how he hnd gone out In front
of the curtain nnd bowed to them
again. Mrs. Bowler know enough about
tlie theater to know whnt curtain calls
were, and Hampton wns telling Jennie
thnt he had six, while the most that
Temple ever had was four. Iu tact,
Mrs. Bowler became so excited that
she nctuully went into the room to
congratulate Hampton upon his success.
When she opened tho door, she saw
Jennie smiling feebly nnd Hampton
at tho foot of the bed, animated, ear
nest, convincing, happy. And .1 entile
wns beaming. She wns still smiling,
Mrs. Bowler said, when she fell back
on the pillow nnd closed her eyes.
Hampton shivered nnd stopped bis
story.
So Mrs. Bowler enme down for
Hampton to tell Buscoe that Jennie
whs dead and to bring one other uios-
snge, which uo one but Buscoe seemed
to understand. As she told It, It wns
like this: '.'Tell Buscoe that I've made
my oue hit"
NATURAL COM) ST0RAC1E.
s
Had Old Sjostroii's - tomb of ice
'on an Arctic Island in the Behring
Sea remained undisturbed a hundred
]' lionsand years at the end of that
ponderous stretch of lime the face
and form of Ole would have looked
as natural and lifelike as at- the
moment oi the fisherman's death.
Five years ago this young Norwegian, SjostrOu, disappeared from Ba-
ranoft' station. Nobody knew what
became of bini, ami fuiaUy people
ceased to wonder. A few weeks ago
the body was found completely imbedded in the ice so thoroughly preserved " that not even the slightest
indication of change bad set in.
The barkentinc City of Papette has
arrived from Baranofi, and the news
of this remarkable discovery was
brought) by her first mate, Knute
Peterson.
I "Five years ago ill the ice," said
j Petersen, "had not made a bit oi
dificrence in his appearance. When)
they f^'.uid him he looked as though
asleep',1' but sure enough he was cold
in death even more so than the ordinary man. . They suppose that be
lay down on the glacier while intoxicated and fell afleep and that alter
ihe had frozen to death,' the ice lornv-
ed over hiin."
Strange as Ihis story may seem,
the incident is not strange to those
who know the Arctic ice fields. Bo-
Idies of the mammoth, the Elephas
• Priiiiigctiiis of an ancient epoch, have
, been found similarly imbedded in the
:ice and so well refrigerated that af.
ter a lapse of time whicli is regarded as not less than 211,0(10 years,
I possibly a very modest estimate, ev-
jen the flush of the animal was all
there.
The sailor's information about the
finding of Sjostroii's body it meagre,
but it is presumable that instead oi
bring caught and imprisoned in the
glacial ice the fisherman (lied on the
soft soil of the tundra and that his
j body became covered up and frozen
'with it..
| Alexander Torson, formerly third
1 mate ol tlie Cily of Papeete, disap-
': pcarcd at Baranofi early this year,
and his old associates think that he,
like Sjostron, met death on a glacier
anil that bis body is held unchanged
j and unchanging in the ice, probably
to astonish discoverers in sonic (ar
later century.

It wns not until 1805, long after Copley, West, Mallionc, Allston mid Stunrt

born. The same year Horatio Grcen-

"1. No chorus-girl may wear more
than $5,0110 worth ot jewelry at any

"2. No chorus-girl shall have

THfe   'APANESE NAVY.
Archibald S. Hurd contributes to
Cassell's a glowing eulogy ol the navy ol Japan. What most claims attention is his account ol the methods
of manning the fleet:
Alapan has adopted the methods
of continental Europe for manning
her fleet, but though she has a con-
scriptive system, she obtains each
year from her toast towns and vil.
lages an increasing number oi vol.
unteers. Sitting In a Japanese picket boat, withjihe coxswain standing
on tho bulwark smoking his tiny
pipe, with its long delicate stem,
moving the tiller with one foot anil
balancing himself with the other,
while the eng'^er, cool and alert,
is at his small engines, and the little cralt is cocking and rolling in a
heavy sea which threatens to come
over tbe sides, one realizes that
these men are born sailors. Germany
and Russia have to a large extent
to tako their sailors from inland districts, and they have to learn the
ways of the sea. A large proportion ol the Japanese sailors have
been familiar with the sea irom their
boyhood, and the life afloat is to
their irking. They are calm, resourceful, and quiet o oi danger.- They have still some ot the
savage instinct ol fighting leit in
their veins, and, above all, they arc
filled with a deep love lor their
country, as the war with Russia has
shown to the amazement of the
world.'-'

AN AI'PALING SIGHT.
"Talk about appalling sights, the
waterspout ranks among' the grandest ol nature's phenomena," said the
poet laureate of all the Pascaguolas
last night. "Tho formation of waterspouts lias been ascribed to a whirling motion produced In the air by
currents coming from opposite directions. Below a thick cloud the sea
appears to be greatly disturbed within a circular area whose diameter
varies from 100 to 120 yards, the
waves tending rapidly rapidly toward the centre of the agitated
mass, where there is formed a vast
body of water or aqueous vapor;
hence there rises, with a spiray movement, towards the cloud, a column
of a conical form resembling a trumpet. Vertically above this ascending
column there is formed In the cloud,
but in an inverted position, a 'jor-
responding cone, whose lower ex-
