The shades of night were slowly descending, the dew was also arriving, and the usual "indefinable feeling of impending danger" was on time. Mary Jane had almost finished her milking, when suddenly, with a final switch of her tastefully decorated'tail, the usually peaceful bovine raised her left Trilby and, with a fierce kick of protest, upset the brimming; pail.

"Well, they're a little high," replied the grocer. "Because of a big demand or a small supply?" asked the man with the, fur- lined coat "Small supply," answered the grocer. "The hens seem to be taking things easy in this vicinity just now." The man with the fur-lined coat nodded his head as if he approved of the action of the hens.and then asked: "Any bad ones?" "Bad ones!" exclaimed the grocer. "Yes. Any of the ancient, odorous variety, that we all kno.w so well?" "No, sir; not in this shop," returned the grocer emphatically. "Sure?" "Sure! Of course I'm sure." ' "Do you suppose there are any in town?" asked the man with the fur- lined coat anxiously. "No, sir. We pride ourselves on our fresh eggs up in this neck of the woods, Skid It wouldn't be safe for any one to keep bad ones." ' "I'm glad to hear it," said the man with, the fur-lined coat, with evident relief, as he continued his stroll down the street. The grocer looked after him for a minute and then a great light suddenly came upon him. "Say! 1 he yelled,' "Well?" qame back the answer, "Did you mean eating eggs or theater eggs?" "Theater eggs!" exclaimed the man with the fur-lined coat, stopping snort in his walk, "Yes. The farmers never bring in their theater eggs until the afternoon before the show, I was thinking of eating eggs all the time, but if it's theater eggs you want there'll be ejght or ten crates of them on sale in about an hour," Then be went back into his store and, tolfl his assistant that any jay actor who tried to pump him was bound, te get the worst of it every time, B. BORCHGftS- tlnk, the Norwegi Ian explorer, writes a graphic account of "The First Landing oti the Antartlc Conti* nent' 1 for the 1 Century. The article is illustrated with his own drawings, and has an introduction by Gen. A. W, Greely, The Writer says: We landed at Cape Adare that night (Jan. 23, 1896), being the first human creatures to put foot oh the mainland. A peculiar feeling of fascination crept over each of Us, even to the most prosaic natures in our boat, as we gradually drew near to the beach of this unknown land. Some few cakes t)f ice were floating about, and looking over the side of the boat, I even dis* covered a jelly-fish, apparently of the common light blue, transparent kind. 1 do not know whether it was to catch the jelly-fish, of from a strong desire to be the first man to put foot on this terra Incognita, but as soon as the order was given to step pulling the oars, I jumped over the side of the boat. I thus killed two birds with one stone, being the first man on shore, and relieving the boat of my weight, thus enabling her to approach land near enough to let the captain jump ashore dry-shod. I had painted a Norwegian flag on a large box, which we fastened on a strong pole near the place where we landed; and leaving the rest of the Crew to be entertained by the penguins, I proceeded alone to investigate the peninsula and to make colections. I found seaweed on the beach; but whether it had grown on the shores of Victoria Land remains to be ascertained in the future. I believe that Cape Adare is the very place where a future, scientific expedition might stop safely even during the winter months. From the spot where .we were several accessible spurs lead up to the top ; of the" cape, -and from there a gentle slope runs onto the great plateau of Victoria Land. The presence of the penguin Colony, their undisturbed old nests, the appearance of dead seals (which were preserved like Egyptian mummies, and must have lain there for years), the vegation to the rocks, and lastly the flat table of the cape above, all indicated that here is a place where the powers of the Antarctic circle do not display the whole severity of their forces. Neither ice nor volcanoes seemed to have raged on the peninsula at Cape Adare, and I strongly recommend a future scientific expedition to choose that place as a center of operations. On.this particular spot there is ample space for house, tents and provisions. I myself am willing to be the leader of a party to be landed either on the pack or on the, mainland near Column Island. From there it is my scheme to work toward the south magnetic pole, calculated to be in latitude 75 deg. 5 min., longitude 150 deg. E. Should the party succeed in penetrating so far into the continent, the course, should, if possible, be laid for Cape Adare, there to join the main body of the expedition. As to the zoological results of future researches, I expect great discoveries. It would indeed be remarkable if on the unexplored 'Victoria continent which probably extends over an area of' 4,000,000 square miles, there should not be found animal life,hitherto unknown in the Southern hemisphere, It is of course a possibility .that the un- kqown land around the axis of rotation might be found to consist of islands joined only by perpetual ice and snow; but the appearance of the land, the color of-the water, with its soundings, in addition to the movements of the, Antarctic ice, point to the existence Q£ a mass of land much more extensive than a of islands, Nervous Old Gent— Stop!
