THE ANTARCTIC. «31R DOUGLAS MAWSON S STORY. Exhausted, weaK, nuu chilled, for my hands were bare and pouuds of suow had got iuside my clothing, I hung with the linn conviction that all was over except the passing. Below was a black chasm; it would be but the work of n moment to slip from the harness; then all thc pain and toi. woulo be over, it | was a rare situation, a rare temptation, I a chance to quit small thiugs for ^K-at, I to pass from tne petty exploration of a planet to tho contemplation of vaster worlds beyond. But tnere was all eter nity for the Inst. nn-i, at its lougest, tho present would bo but short. I felt better for thc thought.
