A Rich Legacy

A million dollar Polar expedition is now planned by Scientists of Europe, England and Germany uniting in it.

England furnishes $500,000. The German appropriation indicates almost as much. One gentleman, an Englishman, made the first offer of $125,000 from his private fortune.

The object of this expedition, which is the most elaborate, most thorough, and best equipped of any that has ever been sent out for a similar purpose, is to discover the South Pole. The article from which the writer gleaned the above items concluded with the following statements: "So it appears that this expedition, which will be making its report to the world at the beginning of the twentieth century, will probably be remembered at the close of that century as the most important scientific legacy left to it by this century."
