Sir Robert Baden-Powell has just returned from a visit to

several of the chief citie3 in the United States, where he spoke on the-American Scout movement. It is goOd to know that the Association of Boy Scouts Of America has presented to the Boy Scouts of Great Britain a bronze statuette of an American bison, dedicated to " The Unknown Scout "--that is, to the Boy Scout who rendered a service to an American tourist in London and moved that tourist to enquire into the Boy Scout movement and its ideals and then to start it in America. From the " good turn " done by that one boy in London the movement has grown till it numbers 758,000 boys in the United States and will probably amount to a million before long. * * *
