    Full titles read: "ON THE FRINGE OF THE POLE - In the staunch little "Morrissey" we make our last trip to the North with Captain Bob Bartlett."

    L/S's of a Polar bear with her cubs sitting on a large iceberg and swimming in the sea for food. L/S of a man in a small wooden boat lassoing one of the smaller. Several shots of men struggling to get hold of the bear, before it is eventually hoist up onto Bartlett's ship (Some people may find this footage a bit disturbing as it looks rather cruel). Bartlett's team then capture a young walrus.

    Various shots of Bartlett himself attempting to catch a fully grown Polar bear. However, he after successfully lassoing it he is eventually forced to let it go as it starts to attack the boat ! Nice L/S's of the Polar Bear swimming away to safety.
