Many year asro an Irishman, Ignatius
Donnelly, who possesnod an active im
agination and a mlud which worked
along Interesting aud uaua-ual lines,
wrote a book about Atlantis, In which
be proved, to his own satisfaction at
least, that the lost kintrdom really ex
isted and was not a fable.
The earliest authentic Information
about thla myt-tery land w find In
Plato, who averred he had It from his
grandfather, Solon, the famous law
giver, who had spent ome years
among the Egyptians. Pinto told f a
great continent which had existed 8.000
year before lying to the west of the
Pillar of Hercules and making war
upon the nations to the east. Only
Athena and Ejjypt were able to with
stand the enslaughta of tbe Atlantans,
and then suddenly, ln a day and a
night," tbe Island was overwhelmed
and sank into the sea. This was the
story Solon had from the Egyptians
and which hi grandson wrote down,
and the legend has persisted ever since.
Ditodoros Slculua, a Eomata writer,
tell how the Phoenicians discovered
a Urge Island tn the Atlantic ocean
betweeta the Fl liars of Hercuk. ser
eral days' sail from tbe coast of Africa.
This island aborruded tn all manner of
riobea. The soil wa exceedtatcby fer
tile. The scenery wa dlreralfled by
rivers, mountain and forests. It was
the custom of tbe inhabit ants to retire
during the summer to magntQcent
country honses, which stood in the
midst of beautiful garrtrns. Fish and
game were found In. great abundance;
the climate wm delicious and tb tree
bore treat crops of fruit at aU seasons.

Bounding made by British and
American vessel have shown oowlu
slvely that surrounding tbe Asxyre
there is a submerged plateau, which it
does not require much imagination tot
identify with the "rich plain" mention
ed by Plato. From this lost continent
Donnelly belter ed that ridges of land
ran to tbe present ooasta of South
America and Africa, originally, so that
before the time of which Plato wrote
the eastern and western bemlapheres
were connected by land. Thus be ae
connted for inauy similarities in the
plants and animals of the two hemis
pheres which otherwise are Yery dif
ficult to explain.
Tbe continent as described by Plate
was mountainous, but was surrounded
by vast fertile plains. It was rich la
precious metals and bad numerous tern,
pies and statues of gold and silver and
In tbe sudden and violent destruction
of Atlantis, "In one dreadful day and
night," Donnelly boiler ed be saw ths
orlifln of tbe IciM-nd of tlie deluge, so
universal among the followers of all
religious. The BlblVral deluge, the
flood In which the Gret-ks believed,
from which only Deukallon and Pyrrha
escaped, the overflow which Chaldean
legends tell of nil these, Donnelly be
lieved, had their foundation in the de
struction of Atluotls.
1'lato tells us tlnit the race of the
AtlnntaiiH bnd fallen from their high
estnte and committed slim, and the
Zeus dptertiilned to overwhelm them.
An enrth'iuake preceded the sinking
of the land, and there came a great
utortn which brought tho nea rushing
