Tho GalBpagos or "Tortoise"
Islands, a group of Btnall island,
on tho equator, about GOO miles off
tho const of Eouador, South Am
orica, aro owned by Ecuador, which
oountry has a pounl colony thoro.
Tho name ''Tortoise" is given to
tho islands bocauso of tho groat
numbers of land-turtles which are
found thore. Tho known richness
of tho islands in rare 11 ra and
fauna was the inducement, in Nov
ember of 1898, for a sciontiGo ox
pedition to bo sent out from Stan
ford University. Tho party is made
up of Edmund Heller and .Robert
E. Snodgrass of tho zoological de
partment of Stanford University,
with a ship's crow of six mon, on
board tho sailing schooner Bessie

tion itself was mado possible by
the generosity of Timothy Hop
The purpose of the expedition,
says tho San Francisco Examiuer,
is to mako a complete study of tho
animal and plant life of thnso isl
ands. An exhaustive collection of
specimens will bo prepared on
their return a fow weeks hence, by
the party, and will be presented to
Stanford University. The oolleo

world, for the reason that some of
these islands have nover before

around the islands is very groat,
varying from 20 ) to 4()0 fathoms.
Though scientists report tho vol
canoes to be inactive, the present
party has found a number to be
burning and passing out lava.
This may bo unuiual, and it is

The Galapagos Archipelago
bears its chief practical interest to
scientists from tho fact that within
its borders is to bo found plant
and animal life that exists no
whore else in tho world. Thoro
aro, among birds alone, twonty
throo npocios found exclusively
there, and among mammals and
plants the present expedition has
found scoros of now forms and
The chief genoral interest, how
evor, that attaches to the islands
is from tbo fact that it was the
study of its fauna, which first
suggested to the great scientist
Darwin tbo theory of evolution.
In 1832 Darwin left England to
explore the coast of South
America and on bis return bo
began to formulato bis theory of
evolution from what he had thore
found, at tho Galapagos Islands,
and what ho found later at the
Oape Veide Islands, off the coast
The Stanford party roportB tho
islands to bo somewhat inaccessi
ble, though their members have
Hucceedod in visiting to date
something like fifty of them.

they go of all the npecies of birds,
reptiles, fish, insects, molluscs,
plants and mammals pf the differ
ent islauds. Each ,ieland seems
to bo inhabited by different re-
fircsentativo species, a faot which
ends great interest to their work.
The birds hnvo already been
quite thoroughly workod up by
previous naturalists, but tho fish
the party have nearly to them
selves. A yreat manv now species
havo already boon collected.
They havo now four barrels of
drib spooimena in alcohol. Tho
fishes aro collected with dynamito
explotlod undor water by means of
a coppor cable, which is connected
with tho dynamo in tho exploring

PORTO RICAN HERBALISTS.
Little Chiracs at 6acee.il For American

of 1111 opidomlo that n doctor gots nny
kind of a show. "Probably no pooploou

Dr. Fuortez. "All Spaniards aro great
bolievers in tho efficacy of herbs, nnd
tbo doctor's offlco is continually usurp
ed by mon or women herbalists who
earn goodly fees. Tboy havo naturally
a tnsto for tho business to begin with.
Then, having received instructions
which nro handed down from father to
sou or from mother to daughter, they
acqulro a skill in tho uso of herbs that
is roally surprising.
"Evory neighborhood has its horb doc
