History of the Heavenly Visitor
Brought South by Peary.
For seven years one of the largest meteorites
known to the civilized worli has late on the Cobb

brought to a fitting and final resting place, the
jHoseum of Natural History, where the public
may nave easy access to it. There it will stand
as * substantial monument commemorative of
the Arctic explorations of Robert E. Peary, v ho

HISTORY OF THE METEOR.
nils Interesting object had been observed if
Peary In the vicinity of Gape York, Greenland.
In 1895. shortly before his return from his third
Arctic exploring expedition. He fcrougrn with
him at that tine several prrall^r ones, but made
a special trip to the North In l^Vt to secure the
ether. It was deposited at the navy yard on the
arrival of his ship, the Hope, ai;d has remained
Iherp ever f'.nc^.
Oawasr th<t origin of ths specimens fr>und
near Cape York there waf som* question for a
year or two. Or.iy a Fho^t t.n:e before Nor
denskjoid had discovered similar masses much
farther to the northward. He believed them to
be meteorites. Foreign expertu declared h'ow
e»er. that the metal probably carr.e from a ter
rHtrial »our ■ beracs* it would not «tar:d a'l
tie tests which are prescribed. That belief wan
sh»r?-. afterward when basalt !c rocks,
which resembie lava and represent volcar.lc ac
tion, wer* observed in the vicinity of the place
where Ncrdenskjold saw •-■- iron. For this
reason scientific men fe!t sonr-- suspicion about
the etones Irom Cap<» York.
Still, their character waa vindicated at last.
They bad ihe glossy exterior which results from
fusion when flying through th" atmosphere, and
th* r^->Jiiar pitted surface' which is characteris
tic sf a true meteorite. Then. too. the propor
tion of ::icke] ard carbon combined with the
Iron conformed closely with established prece
dent. The most convincing evidence was the
Ia« to be obtained, if such :i specimen Is of
eeie*t!al origin It will exhibit still another trait.
A small hit of surface betas irround clean, the
oae cf nitric add will bring out a peculiar net

**" Samples fro::, the f.upf mass were put
In the hands of several experts in America and
Eurcr-*— *mnr.g them a specialist in Use British
Museum who had condemned the Nordenskjold
'irons"— arid Peary's own theory was fully con
firmed.
It wight not be cafe to afflrm that this enor-
W»t!fr aerolite Is the largest known, hut it In
rrobtbly true that Its character has been attest
«a more catisfactoriiy than that of any other of
% else. From time immemorial travellers have
••J remarkable stories about the existence of
&ige mm**.** of Iron in remote parts of Mexico.
Concerning the general truthfulness of these
Narratives there can be to doubt but the belief
*at the objects In question fell from the ski«*s
*"•»« not been sufficiently -substantiated to Justify
Popular acceptajsoa. The vast majority of gen-
meteorites which survive the ordeal of
«>a:fauatiuii while flying thro«Kh the air weigh
••ly a few ounces. • Only a few exceed that limit.
la 1&1S Sir John floss, ■ captain and explorer

«rtal& tribe of Eefjuimous in the region now
*QM»*-n as Mcteorlt* Island, had iron points to

their Implements and weapons. He knew that
there was no iron in that region, and was told
by the natives that they procured their weapon
points from "the great iron mountain." The
mountain remained a secret until 1804, when
Peary gained the confidence and good will of the
Esquimau* and found the three meteorites.
According to an Esquimau legend, a woman
was banished from her tribe. When she left the
camp she took with her a dog and a tent. After
several weeks of wandering she died. The
woman, the dog and the tent were then turned
into iron. The tent is the big meteorite.

Latter Find Their Chan Remarkable

Staten Island has long been known as the habitat
of tail American type, th« athletic girl, but until
yrrterday the island'-rs did not know how great a
claim they had to the honor. A 'jail frame b.-tween
nlr.r youns women of the Blab Island Lndies"
Cluh and nine of th« most athletic m-)mtx*rs of the
Llvir.jcaton Field Club was played. It ras as clos<^

For Beveral years the two dubs have occupied

"We will play you bast- bull." was the startling
challenge from a committee of young women a few

No one knows Just what yesterday's gair.* was

it among th*-:r.*<?!ve.j. and that the stake* in one
case were bra pounds of chocolates and a box of
cigars. Ir. another a wedding depended on the re

ITALIAN VERMOUTH POPULAR.
Judging from the rcirarkah'e increase in the con-
Fumption of Vermouth in the United States, it
would aeen that it is likely to become as popular
In this country as it is abroad. In Italy it may
almost if. called the national drink and the ever
ready tonic It eierts ■ oenisn UTttttence »:i ward
ing off malaria, and la an "-year-round
"bracer." the doctors e\.e:: mmenaina it to
visitors in cases where an American physician
would prescribe Quinine.
Vermouth is made cf Italian wine, flavored with
certain herbs of the country, the whole forming
a Utter-sweet, aromatic and appetizing beverage,
absolutely harmless and non-intoxicating. The
largest manufacturers in the world of the genuine
Italian Vermouth are Martini i Rossi, who have
their own plantation for raising the herbs for their
Vermouth, of which they sell yearly the enormous
total of 15.0T0.000 bottles, their product finding its
way to every quarter and nook of the civilised
globe. The United States consumes 1.500.000 bottle*
y. irly of this particular brand. W. A. Taylor A
Cc, of New-York, sale agents in the United States
Car the Martini & Rossi Vermouth, state that the
■ales are Increasing rapidly, having risen to the
present figure from a modest 130,000 bottles fifteen
y;ars ago. It is In especial favor with gelf and
I 'Wn tennis enthusiasts, who use it as a high hall
half Vermouth and half carbonic, by reason of Its
invigorating effect, its cooling properties and its
freedom from alcohol. In short. It is making its
way on the recreation field as steadily as it came
to the front in the hotels, restaurants and clubs
throughout the country. in connection with the fa
mous and fashionable Martini Cocktail. •
