Am.rlcft'8 Oroat Krosh-Water Lako
Has a Rival.
Is Lako Supurior Iho largest frosli
watur lako iu tliu world! aBlrs tho
Now York Sun. Most goographors
and other pooplo certainty bolioro it
is, and almost every authoritatlvo
book says so. Thero aro a tow goo
grapbera, however, who say they do
not know, and think tho question
had hotter bo kopt open until wo
havo more exact knowlege of Vic
toria Nyanza, tho largest African
lako. Tho celebrated geographer
Iloclus seems, prematurely, to have
awarded tho first placo to tho
Nynnza, for ho computes its aroa at
83,900 squaro kilometers, while ho
givos tho area of Lako Superior 'at
Several of our best sources of in
formation agree in giving the aroa
of Lako Superior at 31,200 Bittaro
miles, and of Victoria Nyanza at
about 80,000 squaro miles. Tho fact
is that these great lakes aro nearly
equal in size, and wo cannot lell ex
actly how thoy compare, because our
information about Victoria Nyanza
is still very imperfect.
About two years ago Dr. ll.iumann
discovered ou the southonst coast of
tho lako a deep bay that no one had
heard of before, and which is jurt
bogiuuiug to appear ou tho maps.
Ho was live days walking around tho
shoros of this indentation, which is
now known as Baumanu Gulf. A
while boforo this discovery Father
Schynze Mirroyod tho southwest I
prolongation of tho lako, which Mr. '
Stanley ''id not discover during his
voyago of eighty days around its j
shorts. Tlieso two discoveries havo i
added runny square miles which aro !
not iiichnled in the etimatcs here
given of tho laku's area, and tho
shoros of the lake aro still o inade
quately explored ami nurvoyud that
hundrcda of square miles aro likely
yet to bo added to or subtracted
from our prose nt computations of
tlio aroa. Meanwhile Lako Chad,
on tho edge of tho Sahara, may con
tinue to stand off at one aide and
mnilo at tho pretentions of both
those rivals for first placo. In tho
rainy soaou this lake loses all sem
blance of its former self, and spreads
over a vast area, until it covers more
ground than tho vaunted Lako
Superior itself. It is spread out
very thin, to bo sure; but it is all
Lako Chad, arid if its outlines, when
at their largest, wero correctly map
pod, tho lako would look very impos
ing; but Chad, ou those occasions,
like beauty, is only skin doop.
A worthy man, who was very sensi
tive and retiring, haviug lost his
wife, privately requested that ho
might bo remembered iu tho minis
ter's uioruiug prayor from tho pul
pit, but asked that his name might
not bo moutioned. On Sunday
morning tho good minister prayed
most eloquently for "our aged broth
or upon whom tho hoavy hand of
soro aillictiou has so lately fallen."
At this point an elderly man, whom
tho minister had married to a very
young wife during the wook, roso
with a bouueo, aud stamped down

ovor his fortunate escape from a
siege of that distressing ailmont.
Mr. Stumm is foreman of Morriam's
confoctionory establishment. Somo
months ago, ou leaving the neateu
work room to run across tho street
ou au errand, ho was caught out in
tho rain. Tho result was that whou
roady to go homo that night ho was
unable to walk, owing to iullamma

homo, and on arrival was placed iu
front of n good firo and thoroughly
rubbed with Chamberlain's Tain
Halm. During tho evening and night
ho was repeatedly bathed with this
liniment, and by morning was re
lieved of all rheumatio pains. Ho
now takes especial pleasure in prais

always keeps a bottle of it in tho
