The terminus on the edge of the Arctic is Bkaterinn, on the northern coast of the Gulf of Kalo, where large docks and sheds have been constructed.

The full story of one of the most daring deeds of the war is told by the Admiralty on the occasion, of the announcement that the King bas awarded the D. S. O. to Lieutenant Guy D'Oy ly-Hughes, D. S. C, R. N. The decoration is given for -his services on August 21, when he voluntarily swam to the shore alone from a. submarine in the Sea of Marmora and blew up a low brickwork support to the Ismid railway line, in  spite of the presence of an'armed' guard within 150 yards of him..After a running fight of about a mile, he dived- into the sea, and was pulled on board the submarine utterly exhausted, having had to swim nearly a mile in his clothes. The following detailed account is given from the report of the officer commanding the submarine in the Sea of Marmora . Lieutenant D'Oyly-Hughes, -R. N., having volunteered to make an at- j tempt on the railway, proceeded slowly towards the shore, dropped' into the water, and pushed the raft carrying the charge, his accoutrements arid clothes to a,spot some sixty vards on the port bow of tlie boat. His weapons consisted of an automatic service revolver and a sharpened bayonet; He also carried an electric torch and a whistle. The cliffs proved un-scaleable at the first point of land-, ing. He therefore relaunched the raft and swam along the coast till a less precipitous spot was reached. Here after a stiff climb he arrived "at the top and half an hour later, after a considerable advance, nieched the railway line. He then proceeded very slowly with the charge towards the viaduct. Cool Reconnaissance .' Having advanced some five or six; hundred yards voices we:e heard ahead, and shortly afterwards three! men were observed sitting by the side of the line talking quite loudly. After watching them for some time he decided to leave the oharge, which was very heavy and cumbersome, and go forward, making a wide dotour inland to inspect the viaduct.. This detour was successfully carried out, the only incident being an unfortunate fall into a small farmyard, disturbing the poultry but not rousing the household. From a distance "of about '300 .yards the viaduct could easily be seen as there was a fire burning af the near end of it. A stationary engine could be heard on or just beyond the viaduct, and . men ; were moving about incessantly.:  -j , He deaided .that it was- impossible to destroy the viaduct,; so he' returned to the demolition charge and looked for a convenient spot'to blow up the line. He found a low brickwork support? over a sma}J hpllo\t;;and placed It uWemeath:' Uuforttniateli'' it WOMEN DOING MEN'S WORK IN ENGLAND Women employed In an ammunition factory to make up for the lack of i.

He muffled the fuse pistol as tighly as possible "with a piece of rag, but the noise was very loud on such a still night and the men heard it and instantly stood up. They then came gunning down the line, so a hasty retreat was made. After running a short distance he turned and fired two shots to try to check the pursuit,- but these proved ineffectual. Soon' after, two or three ineffectual shots were fired from behind. Explosion Heard ' In view of the fact that speed was necessary Lieutenant D'Oy ly-Hughes decided that to return down the cliffs at the place of ascent was impossible, so he.followed the railway line to the eastward for about a mile till he Is It nothing? la WIt to he aeg- lected until It leads to Hurt terrible scourge consumption ?.

He plunged I into* the water about three-quarters of a mile to the eastward of the small I bay in which the boat was lying. The ! charge exploded as he entered the water, fragments falling into the sea near the boat* although the distance between'the boat and the charge was between a quarter: and half a mile. After swimming for four or five hundred yards straight out to sea he blew a long blast on his whistle, but the boat being in a small bay behind the cliffs did not hear it. Day was breaking very rapidly, so after swimming back to the shore and resting for a short' time on the rocks, he commenerd swimming towards the bay in which the boat was lying. At this point he. discarded his pistol, bayonet, and electric torch, (heir weight making- hist progress very slow. It was not until he had rounded the last point that the whistle was beard, arid at the same time he heard shouts from the cliffs overhead, and was opened on the boat. , Strange Mistake As the boat came astern out of the bay the early morning mist made her appear to him to be three small rowing boats, the bow, the gun, and the conning tower being; the objects actually seen. He swam ashore and tried:to hide under the cliffs, but on climbing a tew -feet 'out of the water he realised his mistake, and shouted again before entering the water. We picked him up in an extremely exhausted condition about forty yards from the rooks, after he had swum the .best part of a mile in his ttothes Husband: "This is certainly some dandjr niece of meat. Where did you get it?" Wife: "Why, dear, I've got a new market; their meats are of.the very best quality, and, best of all, prices are low.

A NEW INDUSTRY The peasant Woodcarvers of Switzerland, though badly hit by the war, are managing-to make ends meet by manufacturing wooden limbs for soldiers mutilated in the war. The originator of this gruesome, though necessary, industry, is-Mr. Elduard Binder,.whose factory is picturesquely Bit-Mated on the edge of the Lake of Brienz. Realizing that until the outbreak of the war the wooden limb industry was practically a German monopoly, iMr..Binder got into touch with the British .and French governments, with the result that many large orders, governmental and unofficial, have been obtained by him from both countries. The wood used for these artificial limbs ig hewn down on the mountainous slopes of the lakes of Brienz and Th.un, is sorted and planed at Mr. Binder's ^factory,. and is transformed Hfto artificial legs, amis and feet bv'thewoodcarvers in their own cottages. .
