by Henry Ette, the Navigator.)
We were sitting in the big cabin
on the seal- and whaling-boat ..S.S.
"Viking" a largo- bark of Arendal,
Norway, and were chatting about
hunting the polar bear,walrus wolf,
wild reindeer and ntuskox. Present
were. "Viking's" chief, Captain S-un-
uelsen one of the oldest skippers of
Svend <Foyn—the founder of the
world's modern big whale-catch—his
first mate, Peter Bvensen a cousin
of the captain on the Duke qf the
Abruzzis north pole ship, the "Stella
Polare," besides two young whaling
skippers, 01 e and Peter Brandal
from Aalesund, and the writer of
this article. The itwio Brandals had
been invited on board for a hot grog
as their whaling yachts, small fifty
tonners, v*ere lying ln our vicinity in
a harbor of refuge during the north
east storm. 1*tie harbor of refug*

Winter ioe; tt mtglit, last; but it might
no doubt also break up and suddenly
chase ua adrift agelln on the agitated
northern Arctic sea.
We found ourselves at 78 deg. N.L
in April, which is Arctic winter. We
were all outofter seal, walrus, boar
and whales, but wie Were all more or
less seafaring mien; we had big hot
grogs ^-standing in front of us and
our pipes alight. W|hat more can a
seal- and whale-hunter desire!
Without knowing it, I had got into
the company of sortie of Norway's
greatest bear hunters; tor the total
numoer of animals killed, according
to a rough calculation, reached more
than 500. Of than figure Captain
Sanjhielsen alone had 150 on his conscience. Art* if the ten gunners of
"Viking" were counted too, figures
would go far above 1000, The seoond
carpenter alone had done Hor 60.
In this company of bdg game hunters I did not feel exactly comfortable. It was something like being in
ttie company of low-necked, beautiful
women in working clothes, without
collar or cu s; for I had at that
period oilly done for ones single polar
bear, and he could not be reckoned
of the biggest, though certainly not
one o] smallest either. Even if my
skipper had called hnm a "pup which
Was weak in the chest," and which
had not been "weaned" yet. To begin with, he wanted to assert that it
was not a 'bear at all, but a wolf, or

been taken on board with the wind-

bring out the bottle, about which, In
a thoughtless m|oment, he had wagered with us
"Last year,  1899," Captain Saguel-
scn related, "there were more   bears
ln the young seal-capture than I   re-
menilber    having experienced  at any
previous   tlmie   during my 30 years'

tell you that one morning I   counted
50 at one time from   the   crows-nest
and that six sealers in tbe course of
one week took lll.of which I had the
31, you will easily understand    that
we were literally living among bears.
(On   arrival   home I also found tho
figure in the official statistics.) And
we   had no need to look for themil"
Captain Samuelsen cntinued, "for at
that period We would "have preferred

in 'being afraid ot  bears.   The   said
that, there wiere bears quite close  to
the   ship, tnd I   went   out there, accompanied only bv the cook.   Everybody were out to kill tiie pups. There
were   two   uncommonly   big, heavy
beasts, a he and a she bear.   I used
our   ordinary   Larsen   seal rifle and
cartridges with air-percussion shells
—you know those with a small cylinder   at   the   point,   and they sometimes explode if they only hit against
the skin.   I had to give tiie bear Hive
shells before she day dead in a water
puddle on an ice floe.   Each time she
fedt the bullet she Dell a-roaring enor
mously,   and then the he bear came
at full speed right down on me.   He
was    furious—properly    in    fighting
humor and  roared  nastily. I wanted
to load,   but   discovered • that I had
fired   off   all i**y shells.   There was
nothing   else    to   do but turn about
and start running towards tiie   vessel. . ,We   could    not take him witb
naked   hands ;  the   cook   had not
even   a   pack***:, only a knife to flay
the bear with, but it looked more as

to Bering strait laughed in his1   barred   so  that I could hear it; still he
shouted down to his mate to run out
with   his    rifle.   However,    a short
distance from, the side of the   vessel
1   met  one of my own gunners with
a rifle, so that, just as I <got on board,
|J heard it snap behind me   and   the
bear was lying there, shot dead right
into the chest.   iBut if he had reached   me,   he would have done for me
with   a Bingle   blow   of his paw.   1
have Been polar   bears   kill   walrus
males with long, mighty   teeth, with
the   same facility as I myself kill a
seal pup.   The audacity of the bears
went so far that year that they paU
us   a   visit   on board.   One day thc
whole crew out as usual to kill pups
nnd shoot old female seals, and there
was   nobody   edse on baord but the
first engineer, my   steward,   myself
and   a   sick   man named Goran forward I sitting eating, and saysto my
steward, "Take a plate   of   porridge
out to the sick -Goran.   The steward
goes out of the messroom, past   ehe
engine   windows and opens the door
to the deck, when 1 hear a sound   as
a plate failing on the deck.'And ln
again he dashes without   the   plate,
just as white In the face as the sum-
milt   of   the   7000-foot high Beerens-
berg, and shouts, 'Bears on   baord!'
'Shut   the door,' says I quietly.   For
In his perplexity he had let the half-
deck door stand open, and I objected
to   having   them   ln the miessroom.
'How mlany are there?'.   'There   are
four—It   is even possible that there
art? five!'   'No, thore  are    certainly
not    five, steward.   You must have
seen too many ln your frlght.For   it
is   namely   exceedingly   rare to see
tour   four   polar bears in company,
and   then   It ls a she bear with last
year's   pup and two years' pup, but
five   I   have   nebeer seen together,'
The only rifles which were on board
were standing on the bridge, and   if
the bears came up on the half-deck,
I was cut off getting hold of them.  I
sneaked up the companion-ladder to
the   half-deck and from there up on
the    bridge.   Right! There   atood n
she-bear with two pups down pn the
foredeck,   just   at the steps down to
the crewspace.   The old one    stood
and snapped a sealskin. I had placed
'Viking'    up against a large pack.so
that the crew did not need rope ladders to get down .on the Ice, and the
sarnie   way the bearc had, of course,
walked on board.. What   you   must
remember, if you should ever chance
to pass the winter In the Arctic night
is   that   if   you mjake lt easy to get
away from board, you also make   It
easy   for   bears   to come on board.
To speak In hunting terms, the   old
one got her allotted part.   It was no j
shot of art, for   she   was   standing,
quite quietly about   100   feet   away;
froml   me.   The pups, as always, re-!
maimed standing guite still 'near the'
tn|other and had no idea of anything.
I let them   remain there; for I knew:
they   would   go nowhere as long as
the   mother   was lying there.   And
then I went down and finished   eating.   I   had   just   drunk my coffee
when mjy second carpenter, who had
dragged   a lot of sealskins on board,
lifted the skylight above:   'Are   we
not   going   to have those two white
rabbits   In a   box, captain?'   He always had to be so witty, that carpenter.   (The rabbits were bigger than
full-grown      Newfoundland      dogs,)
'Can you handle them alone, carpenter?. If   not , then, wait until some
mora   -eome   alon*- wltb skins!'   A
quarter of an hour afterwards they
were both in a box on the orlop.

a longing to go out, and one day
went off the ship. It is true, we succeeded in getting hold of him again,
but when I saw his ferocity in the
strap, when he was being taken on
board with the windlass, in the same
manner as I take drunken memibers
of the crew on board (thB polar bear
pessesses a great sense of honor).
I shot htm In the air. The other one
became as tame as a dog. I had him
every evening with me ln thesaloon
here, when I sat and smoked my
pipe, and he was so fond of catching
a lump ot sugar, which I threw fo
him while I took my even ing grog.
He got so well behaved and accustomed to eople that it heally was
heartbreaking for me to have to part
with him ln Arendal, as he had been
sold to Hamburg. On board the
"Acturus" to Bergen, he made an awful scene one night; broke out of
his box on deck, and walked through
the open door of the saloon into the
smoking room. And ot course there
was a hubbub with shauts and
screams on the part of some commercial travellers who had remained
sitting up in order to enjoy the beautiful Arctic night!"
"And saiff drinks," I put In.
"They of oourse thought that he
wanted to devour them, but he was
much too well mannered to do that.
Had he not been In my company
during four whole months unail he
was grown up?"
"Of course he did not want tny-
thlng else bua his usualevening grog,
captain. You ought to have let the
captain on board the 'Acturus' know
In time how well brought up he was
and pointed out his habits to him,
especially about his nightcap. Did
you ever Bee him later on, captain?"
"Yes, I once saw him act in Gothenburg, In a big number by a beautiful young lady. But he recognized
.me at once, for I could really see he
got tears ln his eyes. And suddenly
he jumlped down from his chair and
wanted to come to me. I was sitting in the third row, and those who
were Sitting in the first two rows
fled .screaming, terror-stricken, to
tbe right and to the left, as tne big
white bear aimed right at them.
What 'became of it I don't know, for
I hurried out of the circus and away
from it all. Let's have some more
hot water for grog, Bteward. You
need not open the door to the deck."
And the steward wtent out into the
large galleyafter the bdg kettle.
"Yes, for since that story with the
bears, the steward has got such a
strange, careful wty of opening the
door out to the half-deck," the skipper ended
by the way, not been visited during
the last twenty years.) We took in
one week 219 walruses and 83 bears.
(Also according to the official statistic.) Of course I shot five one
day before  lunch!"
Also the Brandals, Ole and Peter,
told exciting encounters with Spits-
dressed in furs, which they fetched
the- year before on the Northeastland
"The polar bears are migrating from
the Wt~stland," Ole explained, "now-
after the big prospecting for coal
has begun. But towards the east, In
the HInlopen strait, King Charles
Land, Franz Josephs Land and No-
vaja, there enormous treks of bears
still take place every year from the
north to the south and vice versa.
When so many bears were in the
winter-toe last year, the reason was
that the ice was Hrm' with mainpack
along the east coast of Greenland.
All the hundreds of bearsof East
Greenland migrated towards the
east in order to get hold of the pups.
How they discovered the pupps and
how they know that the females
come from the Wliiae sea is a riddle,
but their course is always right. II
must be insainct. I once met an old
one, it seemed to be, right In the
middle of the sea between Norway's
Northcape and Spitsbergen' South-
cape, but, bp jove, it had the correct
course for tthe Southcape. For I
overhauled it namely, I also had to
go that way!"
"Part of those bears last year
which were in the North-ice," Peter
related, during the following winter
drifted ashore with the ice on Iceland, which lies in the middle of the
North Atltntic. I was on a little trip
over there just after Christmas, and
on the. Northland two had been shot.
A peasant in Nordfjoad had gone
outside the house one dark evening
with a pail, when he saw a big white
animal aome right towards rim. His
servant was out and there was only
a little sick girl at home. He did
not possess any arms himself but his
servant owned an old muzzle-loader,
which he did not understand how to
load himself. Resolutely he threw
the ptil at the tnimjal's head and ran
home to the house; threw his dog
outside and bolted tiie door. The
bear, which was just behind him,
however, knocked the door in and
went into the kitchen, where it found
a dish with sour milk on the lioor, ot
which it started nipping. While the
peasant ran for the servant. Tho
little frightened girl jumped out of
the and also wanted to get through
the kitchen. Tte bear snapped after
her with its mouth and tore a piece
off her nightdress, but she nevertheless saved herself running after her
father. When the bear had taken all
the lnlilk, It went oucsnd e and
knocked the dog, a Scotch sheep dog,
Iii two and stared devouring him.
I However, the man had in the mean-
lay dead. It was an outgrown he
enormtous roar, but at the second It
bear. In the Arctic night the bears
go after the smell of human beings."
Peter ended: "Would you not
like to pass the winter with us some
time on winter polar bear hunting?"
"Thank you! Perhaps I should get
thrown outside the house to entice
the bears to a shooting distance!"
The Brandals did well that winter.
They "sailed In tthe moonth of June
Into the east coast of Greenland and
made a capture ln all ot 200 bladder-
noses and blue seal, 11 walruses, 2
narwhales, 60 muskoxen and 12
bears. Besides this, they took home
with them alive 10 polar bear pups
and 5 calves of nuiskoxen. How
they had the whoole of this menagerie on board their 50-tonner is
quite incomprohonisblc! to me, unless they shared berths with the
young bears. They sold the five live
muskoxen for 13,000 sh. to the zoological garden In Antwerp. Tbe
Garden had to pay the forwarding
of the animals. That none of the
five muskoxen reached the Garden
alive muat be said tn have been an
unpleasant hut accidental loss for
Antwerp, and has scarcely troubled
Ole and Peter in their deserved
nightcap and good night's rest.

the agency of the Department of
Marine ana Fisheries, which conducts
artificial Cut-throat spawning and

each spring.
Authorities have estimated that
only about three percent of all
Cut-throat trout, eggs naturally
spawned, hatch. The reason given is
the desire of flsh spawning at other
times to feed on the newly laid eggs
with the result that the male Cutthroat; after driving off the enemies
fertilizes the eggs too late, when they
have absorbed so much water that
they cannot absorb the fertilizing
From 87 to 90 percent of eggs
artificially  spawned   at  Banff  and
before spawning time the trout are

mixed. In ten weeks the young fry
is ready for its new horae in the trout

Which is the weakest external part of the
human body? Some people would say the
solar plexus, others, the region ofthe heart.
Scientists are inquiring into this little known
subject, and already some important conclusions have been reached. It has b*en found
that the Adam's apple is man's most vulnerable external part. A slight blow is likely to
affect it soseriouly that permanent injury may
result, the man's breathing and swallowing
being impaired. Even pressure by a thumb
at this point cen have injurious results. A bad
blow may cause death. One of the chief discoveries made in the course of this particular
research is that the Japanese art of jiu-jitsu
is based on expert knowledge of these danger
points. For example, a blow wi h the edge of
the hand above the temples or the ears may
fracture the skull or cause concussion of the
brain. Sudden pressure behind the ears is
temporarily crippli g in its effect. Blows on
the nape of the neck are dangerons. Other
points specially sensitive to painjand injury are
the upper lip and tbe abdomen.

Ownership of a tract of standing timber,
managed upon the principles of selective cutting and sustained yield, constitutes a lucrative endowment for an educational institution.
One of the most iuteresting of these cases is
at Berea college, Kentucky. This institution,
organized for an ideal and situated in the foothills of the Cumberland mountains, possesses
a 6000-acre tract known as the Fay forest re
serve. This area is managed on a commercial
basis, supplying lumber, posts, telephone and
light poles and railroad ties. Within it are
quarries from which sand, gtavel, stone and
pulverized limestone are marketed. The Fay
forest reserve is carried on the books of tbe
college as an asset valued at $57,997. Besides
returning a varying but substantial income to
the institution, it provides employment to
many Berea students, who, in 1923, earned
62.3 per cent of their actual school expenses.

Poems From EasternLands
Alabama is now claiming to have the origi
nal Garden of Eden, and some evidence to
support the contention has been discovered in
tbe mountains near Huntsville. A rare wood,
commonly called Chitum wood, has been discovered on the slopes there.    The only other
place   where this wood has been discovered
local scientists say, is in the Holy land.   According to tradition, it was this same kind of
wood from  which the Ark of the Covenant
was fashioned.   It has been proposed that
Alabama include a sample of tbis wood in the
exhibits at the Southern exposition  in  New
York city next February, and it is likely that
the local chambers of commerce will further
the movement along that line and thereby get
considerBble advertising for Alabama as the
home of this remarkable wood.
A Man's Praise of His Wife
My path forth from the east gate lay,
Where cloud like moved the girls at play,
Numerous are they, as clouds so bright,
But not on thorn my heart's thought* light.
Dressed in a thin white silk, with coiffure gray,
is she, my wife, my joy in life's low way.
Forth hy the covering wall's high tower,
I went, and saw, like rush in flower,
Bach flaunting girl.    Brilliant are they,
But not with them mv heart's thoughts stay.
In thin white silk, with head-dress madder dyed,
Is she, my sole delight, 'foretime my bride.
