He had just paid a dollar and a quarter for having the dif

the garage and said:
“ That’s just the job I want done— go to it at the same price.”
But the repair man replied:
“Sorry, but it can’t tie done. Why, it would take five dollars’
worth of time just to get to your differential before starting to

Captain Bernier believes that these

Another relic of the Arctic found by
Captain Bernier’s crew is a spear from
Sir John Franklin's expedition, which
drifted in on the tide in Erebus bay.
North Devon island, the bay being
named after the Franklin ship Erebus.
It Is a wooden spear with iron point
and the name Erebus stamped upon lt.
The spear from the Franklin expedi
tion was probably lost overboard in a
storm and drifted, swept on by ice
and tide, to Erebus bay. The wreck
o f the Erebus was found on O’Reilly
island, south of Victoria strait, by Es
kimos years ago.
For fifteen days Captain Bernier and
members of his Arctic expedition on
board the Guide were caught in the Ice
of M elville bay, in latitude 75. A fter
battling with huge masses of ice drift
ing down from the north for two weeks
the Guide managed to get free from
the Ice packs and make her way into
the open sea.
An Interesting theory of a route to
the pole for a vessel is advanced by
Captain Bernier, and is based upon
deductions made from his discoveries
of relics of marine disasters in the
Arctic and study of the polar tides. He
believes that, starting from a certain
