it is yet pmsible that the entire

which left Ikud late Monday after

misunderstanding arose with the

balky car was deserted some ten
miles this side of Culver and the

being reached in the wee smo
chilly hours. The only silver lin

inspiring view of the comet was ob

Culver n message was wired back
to Ikud for n relief auto to take the
party on to Shaulko.

from John IJ. liurchurd, who heads

Definite announcement of a

that a survey had been located
from Iknd southeasterly. It is
now stated that the Poise & West
