THREE WEEKS IN HUBBARD BA Y such as you hear them from the lips of cultured Parisians-a soft, almost plaintive, undertone, with no abrupt changes, but merely gentle gliding movements within narrow limits of pitch and volume. Their peculiar "r," grasseye like the Parisian (the word Nursoak is often spelled Nugsoak), completes the illusion. It affords me pleasure to acknowledge my indebtedness to Lieut. Peary for invaluable assistance and unvarying kindness, and to record my gratification at having been an eye-witness of his management-a model of foresight, readiness, energy, fair ness, patience, and consideration. In these qualities one per ceives the secret of his magnificent achievement and the guar antee of his crowning success, the conquest of the Pole in 1900. In naming features which Ryder left unnamed, I have tried to serve a useful purpose by using the names of some of the fore most advocates of a National University at Washington. This may aid in giving to the movement the publicity which, it would seem, is the only thing needed to insure its success.
