Yankee Whaler Explores the Arc-
Capt. Comer of New London Frozen
at Cape Fullerton, Studies Na-
tives, Folklore, Geography
With his vessel frozen in in the Arc-
tic regions in the northern part of
Hudson bay, Capt. George Coiner of
the New London whaling schooner A.
T. GifTord, is spending his spare time
adding to the little that is already
known about the vast arctic regions,
their former inhabitants, geography,
and the possible mineral wealth. Time,
he writes, does not hang heavily on
his hands in the desolate regions, be-
cause he keeps investigating. He
would, however, like to know who
has been elected president of the Uni-
Besides studying the region in
which he is now, he has spent a good
deal of time exploring the island of
Southampton, about which little has
been known, and has made a new
chart of the place. One of his letters
written last October, but just now re-
ceived by Capt. B. S. Osbon, chair-
man of the executive committee of the
Arctic club, is given below:
"In our cruising this past summei
we increased our knowledge ot the
island of Southampton, and so I have
made a rough drawing of it in the
hopes that it may be useful in cor-
recting the present charts. In gen-
eral outline it gives a very good idea
of the island, especially as the south
Bhore has never been known. Should
any mineral ever be found here this
bay would be the place for head-
quarters. Iron ore is evidently
abundant, judging by the pieces
found around the old encampments.
"There are no natives living on the
island at present, but in times past it
must have had a population of 300.
The estimate is based on the number
of houses which were permanent
homes. These were partly under
ground, with a low wall of stone and
bones, upon which were laid whales'
jaws and crown bones, the inner ends
resting on a king post built of flat
limestone. From this king post to
the rear would be stone and earth,
this forming a partitidn between the
leleeping apartments, as one of these
houses would accommodate two or
three families and were occupied by
succeeding generations until they be-
came unbearable from the accumu-
lation of lamp soot or perhaps some
death occurring in them, though it was
the custom to carry out the ones who
"were likely to die and make a rude
shelter for them near by. These
houses were used more as winter
quarters, and from the amount of ref
use thrown out, were probably
cleaned once a year. In the summer
skin tents were used and trips taken
to other hunting grounds.
"In 1897 1 met these people and got
them to give me the number of men,
women, boys and girls that were then
living on the island. This was done
by placing as many stones in one
pile as there were men and the same
with the women, and so on, this made
68 in all. But as with all natives, they
spoke of the others who lived in a
distant part of the island as bad peo-
ple, so that even on this island they
had their feuds, and no doubt fought
"We have been cruising in the boats
for whales from May 11 to September
22. A number of whales have been
seen, but it has not been our good for-
tune to get them all. The bone trom
one, a very good one, went to Scot-
land. We went over to Southampton
island this summer, but I could not
It is an old saying that if the stom-
ach is sound the whole body is sale,
because so much depends upon the
proper working of the stomach. Many
persons find themselves with a dis
order of the stomach which pro-
duces dyspepsia or a peculiar state ot

WAYS OF THE ANT

Have Cities Organized with Fdice-

iftttempted; but if an ant could look
down Culebra cut and consider rela-
tively its strength and that of man, it
■would probably wiggle its antennae in
l6Corn and go home to joke to its chil-
dren about man's presumption.
For some ants have been known to
dig tunnels three miles long, a work
(proportionately greater for them than
lit would be for men to build a tun-
jnel under the Atlantic from New York
Ants have method in the way ftiey
Hive. In fact they are quite civilized,
(for they have their cities, their gov-
'ernments, just like men do, and, like
la.ll other civilized races, they csirry on
On the outside these palaces of the
jants look rough enough, but order and
idecency reign within, ^hey don't hud-
■dle down at the bottom of the hill, not
!by any means, for they have as many
,as a dozen floors, connected by stair-
leases, and here, divided according to
jtheir station in the kingdom, the va-
rious grades of ants live, work, die and
(are buried, for they have their ceme-
'teries away down in the ground.
The ant municipality has in it three
k grades people—the kings and
iqueens, the aristocrats, and the work-
Crs. Some of the ants act as soldiers,
ome as police, others are dairy maids,
(luraemaids and working civilians.
And every one of them does his or
her duty or pays a penalty. For ex-
ample, suppose one of the dairymen
down in the stable says: "O, well, I
am tired of this thing of looking aft-
er cows for these people. I believe
that the king and queen ought to work
just as I do. I'll knock off right now
and take a nap here in a corner of the
stable." If he does his lead is cut off.
Up at the single entrance into the
ant-hill will be found a sentry, day and
night, keeping guard lest some sud-
den attack may be made on the cita-
del. When a hostile body of ants is
seen marching in his direction, the
sentry gives the alarm and the sol-
diers are immediately mobilized to go
forth and give battle to the invaders.
The door of the ant-hill opens Into
a passage about a quarter of an Inch
in diameter, and this leads downward
into the house proper. Galleries
branch off in every direction, connect-
ing with all sorts of rooms which
vary in size according to the purpose
for which they are built.
Here we find guard rooms, summer
sleeping rooms, dining rooms, storage
chambers, and many others as shown
in the accompanying Illustration, each
floor being connected in series by
staircases. Down on the very bottom
floor is the winter palace of the queen.
One of the most interesting features
of ant-life is the attention that is paid
to the cows, for the ants have aphids,
or milch cows, and dairymen look aft-
er them very carefully.
When the springtime comes, the at-
tendants drive the aphids out to pas-
ture on the blades of new grass, each
day taking them to a new place. Then
at milking time the milkmaids take
the cows and stroke them with their
feet until they yield a drop of milk
with which the maids hurry down to
the nursery where it Is fed to the
It is very important to keep on hand
a good stock of cows, for there is
always a nursery full of children—
no race-suicide among the ants. The
queens lay thousands of eggs, which
are hatched by other ants, hence there
are millions of babies wanting milk.
The young ants have wings and the
queens lead them Into the open air
where they fly around giving the
world notice that they have reached
the age of discretion. After the flight,
their wings are torn off and they set-
tle down to keeping house and rais-
ing Rooseveltian families.
There is much work then to be done
by all hands, for not only must dally
bread be supplied but sufficient store
must be laid away to feed these mil-
lions of little beings during the harsh
weather of winter.—Pathfinder.

AN INTERESTING PAINT TEST
There is a very simple and interest-
ing chemical test by which to detect
impurity in paint materials. Thou-
sands and thousands of people, all over
the country, are making this test. It
is a sure way to safeguard against
the many adulterated white leads
which are on the market. Any one
can make the test—all that is needed
is a simple little instrument which
may be had free by writing National
Lead Company, 1902 Trinity Building,
New York, and asking for House-
owner's Painting Outfit No. 49.
The outfit includes also a set of color
sphemes for exterior or interior paint-
ing, or both, If you wish, and a book
of specifications. No houseowner
should make any arrangements for
painting till he gets this outfit.
One can't expect a satisfactory paint-
ing job without pure white lead. There
is a way to make sure you're getting a
pure white lead—without testing it. See
that the keg bears National Lead Com-
pany's famous Dutch Boy Painter trade-
mark, which is a positive guarantee of
purity. Your dealer probably has
this white lead. If not let National
Lead Company know.
