The original menu cards upon.which appeared in- water colors the famous ship "May- flower' at Its first Ian-ding in Plymouth served to amuse the guests, between courses. In order that everyone would know each other before the close of the evening, the cards were passed around and each guest wrote his or her name and natal state on the back. It wag found that twelve states represented, besides two Canadians and one Englishman. The guests were seated at two long tables attractively decked with of rosy red and small slllc American which were "later given the ladies as favors. After din- ner D. H. Elton, the pro- posed a toast to the King and Presi- which was responded to by the singing of the of the British and American national anthems. Mr. Klton then gave a short "talk, speaking tn glowing terms of the great country in which, to which so many Americans were coming. He spoke of the com- mon-history which was as much'Can- adian as American and of all English- speaMng people. Mr. Elton said 'he rejoiced in the fact that the Union Jack land Stars and Stripes would side -by side against a foe of1 either instead of opposing each other. He quoted Scott's well known whose object is to assert .British authority in northern-waters.

B.ernier says that up to the time oE writing everything seemed favorable to the Arctic's enterprise- Strong gales from the south indicated that the ice was Broken up. His letter was brought to civilization -by a Scotch whaler, and reached Canada via Scotland. If he has succeeded in making the passage, the next word from rSe.rnier will probably -come via the Mackenzie River overland route.
