The daughter of Sir Reginald Mac-leod - who has filled many important Government posts - Miss Macleod will go down to posterity as one of the most intrepid of lady explorers. And a pathetic interest is attached to the story of her travels. Her lover, Lieutenant Boyd Alexander, was treacherously murdered by natives in the French Soudan, and it was in order to visit his grave that Miss Macleod undertook a journey of 3,700 miles through Africa, penetrating regions hitherto unknown to travellers. In fact, during her expedition, six months was spent in country never before visited by white women. And the French authorities have paid a tribute to her courage by naming after her certain falls. Miss Macleod made her journey both on foot and on horseback, being carried in litters only on three days through swampy country. She has added much to our knowledge of the Dark Continent, and, needless to say, possesses many souvenirs of her unique journey.
