Abstract

THE AND MRS. WORTHINGTON stiU found the place and occasion when the feel of a rifle was ‘comfortable’ during the night. They were also ‘roasted’ in places fit for no human life, ran constant and inevitable risk in their small boats on great lakes, and had marmalade for breakfast in one of the special hells they saw fit to visit. Such things make good reading, but cannot well be introduced into scientific papers, or official reports, and the authors have done a service in writing a general book, where the reader can find both enlightenment and entertainment.
