ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. Anxiety for the safety of Captain Bartlett and liis party, who are adrift in tiie Polar pack ice, separated from Mr Stefansson, who is on the mainland, is greatly stimulated because it is known by his intimates that Bartlett's ship, the Karluk, was worn out and condemned as a whaler before the ex pedition started (says the New York correspondent of "The Dally Tele graph," December 11). This statement will be questioned probably, but I have seen a letter to-day penned by Cap tain Bartlett himself, and never hither to published, severely indicting the old craft, and gravely questioning her fit ness for the work In hand. Writing from Nome, Alaska, to "The Daily Telegraph's" informant at New York, Captain Bartlett, who Is a British subject, and was captain for Peary on his successful trip to the North Pole, says: "I only wish wo had the Roosevelt (Peary's old ship).

And now, as 1 sit down to write this, they have re turned to me with greater force ami clearer Import than ever. So many of us arc mental cigarette fiends! Do you understand what I mean?

THROUGH THE TELESCOPE MOON'S DISTANCE MEASURED. A learned professor, with nine letters after his name lias become a small boys' hero (says "The Daily Mail," of December 31). Professor H. H. Turner, D.Sc., D.C.L., IMt.S., Saviliun Professor oC Astronomy in the Unversity of Oxford, %vho yester day delivered his second lecture at the Royal Institution, London, has caught the imagination of the small boy liko a Jules Verne or a Stevenson. He has overcome the firmly rooted conviction of the young that all real professors must be dry, elderly, and grim, and that a lecture is a dull sort of thing. Professor Turner possesses tho geni ality of a benevolent uncle. Ho under stands just what appeals to small boys and disguises his science in a delightful "make up." Yesterday he was sur rounded by balloons, aeroplanes, kites, telescopes, and continuing his subject, "A Voyage in Space," he took his audi ence up towards the moon, which is 210,000 miles away.

THE QUACK. By Laura L. Runyon, in the "Smart Set." His mcdical course was taken at one of those small colleges since made infamous by the investigations of the committee appointed by Congress to standardise mcdical schools. But at the time the Quack Doctor began practice, any degree of M.D. from a college which spent two whole years in teaching medical sciencc was accepted by the Sjate authorities as a sufficient guarantee; and as to the general public, they never even thought to ask "Where has the doctor studied?" He never intended to be a quack doctor, either. He wanted to be a thoroughly up-to-date physician. He longed to cure all diseases. He had a deep sympathy with sickness of any sort. Circumstances forced him into the quackery business. Of course he was poor when he started his medical education—other wise he would have sought the best college in the country, with the long est course and the best hospitals at tached.
