TO TEST A SCIENTIFIC THEOEY.
A French Savant Wishes to Reach the
Earth's Internal Fires.
M. Paschal Grousset, Deputy of Paris,
has just addressed a letter to M. Picard,
director-general of the exhibition of 1890,
in which he proposes that a mine should
be made to a depth of 1500 meters in order
to test the theory of internal fire, says the
Paris edition of the New York Herald.
If the temperature rose to tropical heat
he considers the much-discussed question
would be settled.
M. Grousset proposes that horizontal
galleries should be dug every 200 meters,
in which illustrations of coal, diamond,
gold, and other mining would be given.
Two elevators would connect each gallery
with the one above and below.
These, he thinks, would attract a large
number of visitors, and would therefore
justify the expenditure necessary to con
struct the mine.

Japan is to have its own Eiffel tower.
The Eastern World, published at Yoko

nese patriots in Tokio have conceived the
idea of so commemorating their victories.
The tower will be 1000 feet high, and the
lowest story is to contain an exhibition of
national industries, while the highest will
be a Walhalla, devoted to the statues of
Japanese patriots who have died for their
country. The cost is to be $350,000, and
European contractors are invited to send
The sea is estimated to contain 2,250,000,
