A Valuable Col'icctioa The feature of the collection, irom E popular standpoint, are the skins, skulls and leg hones of nineteen bar- ren ground grizzly bears ready for mounting. Only one barren ground grizzly is in any museum. It is sup- posed that the bears of two species are in the collection. The barren ground erizzly attains a weight of .700 pounds. It lives on tbe thick loots of an herb. At thc approach ci winter the bear, which has taken on a four-inch layer oi iat, burrows B hole in a river bank and permits itself to he covered by snow. Ap- -jjareatlT .tho bear hibernates without of energy, ior in April, when it Jfcaves its hole, the fat ;s still in- Sart. However, in April and May oi I made note .of. the by Collinson in 1S5S.' He wrote that it numbered 200 persons. There' are j now 220 and all are in good health. "On the other hand. Dr. Richard-; son, in 184S found two thousand Es-, kimos between the Mackenzie river and Bailey Island. These Eskimos, have been in contact with the nnd only forty persons survive, and, these are diseased." SteSanssen ascribes' the success his expedition to the fact that he took- no food supply but went into the country with his rifle. He lived as the Eskimos and spent much ot the time among them. Eskimo wo- men sewed his garments, but other- wise he needed no aid irom Eskimos.
