     Lieut. Peary and his party who have spent the summer in Greenland
picking up relics and specimens and meteorites have arrived at Sidney, Cape
Brotone Island, and will soon reach New York. Lieut. Peary has in the hold
of his vessel the huge meteorite which he wanted to bring on his former
return trip, but which he had not then the appliance to handle. This is
supposed to be the largest meteorite yet discovered, and no doubt scientists
will have a lovely time picking at it when the huge bulk arrives on terra
firma. Lieut. Peary has brought with him an outfit of Esquimaux, dogs,
sleds, boats, ect., with which to make an attempt to reach the north pole
next year.
