![ A WONDERLAND.
I New Zealand's Belt of Geysers of
B Boiling Water.
I Tf one can imagine a furious ami
I active volcano with a crater a tliouf
sai,(l miles in extent sunk level with
the earth and thinly covered with a
screen of soil, one has some idea of
ihc awe inspiring: "wonderland" of
'New Zealand's north island. You
cannot poke a stick fnto the ground
"without- starting a boiling spring, and
"whether you turn the ground is fairly
alive with geysers of boiling water?
steam .jets and hlowholos, with quivering
volcanoes ami gurgling ''mud
pots," all colored fantastically ' with
rainbow hues, ranging from brilliant
Sapphire to vivid scarlet. Stranger
still, the en tiro face o>? this region is
1 constantly changing in shape and
color, and there are hot springs here
stretching in a continuous chain for
.100 miles. The ground throbs and
1 quivers with volcanic activity, and set
in the midst of it all aiv native Maori
villages of surpassing interest, a
strange race of magnificent savages,
who. although they have been cannibals
wit bin the memory of man, are
, now a highly in I.-II ige.nl race and
actually send representatives to the
parliament in Wellington.
II he native women, gorgeous in garments
of crimson, green and purple,
are forever puffing stolidly at big I
pipes and going liitner and I hither
about their household1 work with the
quaintest of babies slung across their
backs. This reminds me that domestic
work in this strange region is made
Wight indeed tor white housewives as
pvell as the Maori women. Kverv garlien
and back yard has its hot water
provided by nature.
L And when these easy going people
prow hungry iiie mother- prepares a
kneat pudding or a joint and drops
M into a convenient pot of natural
boiling water in the earth, and in a
[few minutes it is cooued. The same
conveniences are still more in evidence
<m washing day. Stepping carefully
through a tangle of boiling
geysers and gurgling mud pots, onj
suddenly comes upon a great collection
of native women and girls doing
their washing in a vast smoking lake
big enough to have steamers on it.?
