Mr. .McDonald'was entrusted with the task of thc-moose and tak- jing them to the Antipodes. Fourteer- moose were secured in the spring of and were kept in caotivity until the fall, being gradually domesticated. In lhe fal! they were taken to Xew Zealand Vancouver. Owing to the roughness of the voyage a number of the animals died en route, but the balance were safely landed in New Zealand, ivhere they have increased in number and are doing well. One of his interesting souveairs of this trip, retained by .Mr. McDonald, is a pass on tlie National HaiJways of Xew Zealand, presented to him bv tbe late premier of thaf< colony. Mr. Seddon.
