Tliu following description Is bused on u communication to the National Geographic society by William Joseph yiiownlter: "Geography inado Chicago. Its po sition nt the foot of the Great Lakes resulted In its evolution us the farthest inland terminus of navigation of the Inland scan. "Made what It Is by the processes of geography, Chicago soon returned the compliment by helping geography transform other regions-. Its slaughter ing and packing industry has changed the center of gravity of the meat-pro ducing world. Its agricultural Imple ment industry has revised the eco nomic status of more than half of the inhabitants of the earth, its sleeping-car Industry has entirely re vised tho geography of travel, bring ing hundreds of places separated by mountain and plain close to each other. "It Is Interesting to pause for ft bird's-eye Inventory of wluit the city Is today. Fourth in population, It ranks first nmong the world's great urban centers in many ways. No oth er place butchers as much meat, makes as much machinery, builds as many cars, sells as much grain, or handles as much lumber. "The Michigan nvenue improvement is n major feature of the now famous 'Chicago I'lan.' Tho beautiful high way, with its connecting arteries, Unites tho North Shore with tho South side. For years this thoroughfare has been tho pride of Chicago, and the admiration of nil who visit the city. s a part of the Lafcp Shore drive that links the woods of southern Wis consin with the plains of northern In diana, it is a magnificent street "To secure the full benefits of her situation, tho city is undertaking to connect her three great lakeside parks. Already Lincoln park has edged a. narrow way southward along tho beach until there Is n wonderful curving stretch of green reaching (o Grand avenue and making a fotir-mlle pnrkway unbroken and unmarred. "The city annually spends five mil lion dollars for park purposes; more per capita, perhaps, than any other city of the first order In existence. There Is not a 'keep oft the grass' sign In the entire park system; nnd all recreational facilities are free ex cept the boats In the lagoons. ''There Is n 'swimming bole' with in walking distance of every boy In Chicago; and even with the fino mu nicipal bathing beaches of the lake front not far away, these mld-clly park lagoons are always In use, providing Joy for the hearts of the kiddles who visit them." MONT BLANC: APEX OF EUROPE Mont Bhinc undoubtedly remains "the apex of Europe" In' spite of tho loss of a part of its top in a gigantic snow and landslide as reported In press dispatches early last winter. This great mountain led Its nearest European competitor for altitude Monte Rosa by (KM feet. Though actual measurements nf the loss In Summit of Mont Blanc. helcht by Mont Blanc have not been reported, estimates ure that It has lost only "some scores of feet," ii loss which still permits It proudly to rear its head far above all other pinnacles of the earth's crust west of the Caucasus. Mont Illanc, tho "Whlfo Mountain," Is the westernmost of the great peaks that form the rennino Alps, which include In their length of about f0 miles such well-known features as Monte Itosa, the Matterhorn, the Great St. Bernard I'ass, and Mont Blanc Itself. Mont Blanc lies, on the border between Italy and France. About ten miles to the northeast, also on the crest of the I'ennlnes, Is the' common corner of France, Italy and Switzerland, The towering White mountain Is easily visible in fair weather from Geneva, sent of the League of Nations, CO miles to the ...a : J :'(, Htf ' S.

Tho highest vis ible stone hi tho mountain was 171 feet below the top. tho crest Itself being mndo up of an unknown thick ness of Ice and consolidated snow. This cap becomes slightly lower In summer, due to melting, but Is re newed In winter. Partly hidden among lessor peaks and foothills, Mont Blanc was prac tically unknown to western Europe until 17-1-1. At first local mountain climbers and tourists visited only the lower ends of tie glnclers among them the famous Mer do Glace near the French village of Chainonlx: For more than n quarter of a century n standing reward for anyone who would discover a route to the top, was uncollected. Finally on August 1). 17S0, the crest was reached by a peasant guide, Jacques Balmat. lie became more than locally famous nnd received the quixotic gift of a patent of nobility from the king of Sardinia. HUNGER SUPPLANTS FETES WHERE WOMEN WORE TWENTY PETTICOATS Budapest now is capital of a shrunken Hungary, a nation reduced to a fourth Its former slue, both In respect to lis urea and population. Tho famous city which first expe rienced anarchy and carnago during the era of Bela Kun ami his commu nistic government, now feels the pangs of hunger, and can scarcely hope to regain Its former Importance, pros perity and gayety during tho lifetime of Its present Inhabitants, If over. The Budapest of today offers a pa thetic contrast to tle care-freo days of such fetes as that of St. Stephen's before the war. That historic celebration, when men wore slit skirts ami the women donned L'O petticoats, Is described In the following bulletin from the Na tional Geographic society, based on a communication from DoWltt Clinton Fulls: "For who Saint Stephen was, and why he was thus honored, wo must go back some nine hundred nnd odd years In Hungarian history, from which we gather the following Infor mation: Vnlk c.ainc.to (ho throne of the Magyar Duchy In the year U07. He applied for and received the title of Apostolic king from Pope Sylves ter II, and was crowned In Budapest In the year 1000, under the Christian name of Stephen, lie did much for his cpuntrymcn to bring them Into tho established church, and founded throughout his kingdom churches, schools and convents. Ills adminis tration was a wise one, aud so firmly did ho denl with the attempted upris ing of the 'Old Magyar Religion' party that when his death occurred, InlOIW, lie left Ills country entirely -converted to Christianity. So much had ho done for" the advancement of the Christian faith among the wild hordes of east ern Europe, and added to the civili zation of his subjects, that ho- was canonized and gladly proclaimed' by the Hungarians as their patron snlnt. "When tho Saint passed away, In 101(0, one of his hands was amputated and embalmed, and this sacred Telle reposes In the court chapel of the Royal Palace In old Buda. Adorned with many handsomo rings, It Is kept In a crystal casket, set In n beautiful golden reliquary ornamented with ninny precious stones. In a special shrine behind the high altar. It re mnlned for !K54 dnys In every year, whero It could be seen only by tho royal household, and those having speelnl permission. On the three hun dred and sixty-fifth day, tho one set apart to do honor to Saint Stephen, Ii was taken from Its resting place, and with great pomp and a most hill Hunt escort, carried In a procession to the old Matthias church for a spe cial memorial service. "The first thing that attracted our attention, as we drove by tho walking crowds, was the change of cost nine of tho peasants from the day liefore, Then all were in their working clothes,. but today they were arrayed In all their glory. The men had re talued their fiat hats, but had general ly adorned them with flying rlhhohs of tho national colors red, white and green. The white dlvlded-skirt-llke trousers were now ornamented on tho bottoms of tho legs with fringe, or coarse lace, and the dark working coats had been' laid aside. In their place were gala ones, always colored soft browns, reds and green- and elaborately braided with different col ored cords. "The women retained tho colored head handkerchiefs, but -they wero newer and brighter than those worn on Snturday. Their waists were gen ernlly of white or llgjit cotton mate rial, sometimes gnny ornnnientea witn coarse-colored embroidery. It wus the skirts that wero the unique things about the costumes. Of the brightest colors, they were nccordlon-pialted and stood out Ui the most remarkable manner. How they accomplish" d this was n mystery to the ladles "f our party, until our trusty guide and In terpreter hud been interviewed. From him It was learned that no Ilungn rlnn peasant woman considers herself properly dressed for n gala onaslon unless she has on nt lenst twenty pet tlcoats." .MOLDAVIA Now that Roumanlu has doubled Its nrea and population, thus becoming the largest of the Balkun states. It Is attracting more Interest nnd atten tlon among nntlons of the world. Moldavia, the north wing of the butterlly-shnped Roumanla of-ore-war days, was conspicuous during tho struggle for being squeor.ed between the Austro-German armies on the north, and other central powers' for ces attacking on tho soVith. Moldavia had approximately one- fourth of the population and one- fourth of the area of the Roumanla of 101-1. Tho population Is n little less than two and a quarter million, and tho area a little loss than 10,000 square miles. To tho west of It He Truiisylvanla nnd tho Austrian crown lands of Bukowlnn. To tho east lies Bessarabia, with the river Pruth mark ing tho boundary the entire distance. On the south Is Wallnchla, tho other wing of tho Roumanian kingdom. The Sereth river divides Moldavia Into eastern and western sections, (lowing the entire length of the prin cipality along the foothills of tho Carpathian mountains. Eastern Mol davia, composed mainly of the high plateau lying between the Pruth nnd the Sereth, Is approximately 275 miles long and has an average width of about 50 miles. Western (Moldavia Is entirely mountainous, the crest of the Carpathians forming the boundary between It and Austria-Hungary. The history of tho prlnelpnllty of Moldavia Is of striking - Interest. It was founded about the middle of tho fourteenth century by the Wallach Volvodo Bogden. It soon grew to bo a largo state, embracing the preont Moldavia, Bukowlnn, and Bessarabia. Poland and Hungary were both rivals for favor at the Moldavian court, with neither able permanently to assert Its ovqrlonhhlp. Stephen the Great ruled Moldavia from 1-157 to ltHM, and tie- lle1 the Turks, whining a signal vic tory over them at Rakovn In 1475. Gradually growing stronger, however, the Moslems succeeded again, under Stephen the Great's successor, la es tablishing their mastery. Although the Turks never settled tho country, they proceeded to build fortresses, and thus managed to hold their ground. Up to 18121 the country was gov- Vmed by bospodars appointed, by tho sultan from the families of Greek aris tocrats. In that year native princes wero once more made to head the gov ernment, but In 182!), Russia having gained a victory over Turkey, was ac corded a protectorate over Moldavia under tho treaty of Adrianople. This treaty wus tormlnnted by the Crimean war and the treaty of Paris. There after, thcpowors agreed to set up tho two principalities of Moldavia and Wulluchlu, which In their turn decid ed, In 1850-01, that they would unite under one head and become ono coun try. CONQUERING BUBONIC PLAGUE IN THE PHILIPPINES Discovery last summer of a num ber of isolated cases of tho bubonic plague in the United States lends In terest to tho following communication to the National Geographic society, describing how tho dlseaso wus con quered by American medlcul author ities In the Philippines. "The United States drove the bu bonic plague out of the Philippines as completely ns It swept tho yel low fever out of Cuba. "Bubonic plague' was discovered at Manila December t!0, 1800, and slowly but steadily Increased up to Decern her, 1001. Tho deaths in 1000 num bered 100, and ,in 1001 reached u total, of 4VJt. Tho dlseaso was at Its worst each year during the hot, dry mqnths of March, April, and May, nearly or quite disappearing during September, October, November, and December. It will be noted that tins number of cases In 1001 exceeded that In 1000 by 1200, while the number of deaths wus about, two nnd n half times as greut, und the percentage of mortality among persons attacked Increased from 73.1 In 1000 to 01.7 In 1001. "On account of the Important part which house rats are known to play in tho distribution of bubonic plague, a systematic campaign was Inaugu rated against these rodents In Mnnlla. Policemen, sanitary Inspectors, and jqieclnlly appointed rat-catchers wero furnished with traps and poison, and both traps and poison wero distribut ed to private Individuals under proper restrictions. A bounty was paid for all rats turned over to the health au thorities, and stations wero estab lished at convenient points through out tho city where they could bo re ceived. Each rat was tagged with the street ,-lnd number of tho build zing or lot from which It came, was dropped Into a strong nntlseptlc so lution, nnd eventually senf to the bio logical laboratory, whero It wns sub jected to u bacteriological examina tion for plague. "Buildings In which ploguo rats were taken we(re treated exactly as wero those wnero tne disease nt tacked tho human occupants. The bacteriological examination of rats en abled the board of health to follow tho pest Into Its most secret haunts and fight It there, aud was the most I in portant factor In tho winning of the grent success which was ultimately achieved. "With very few exceptions, there wns no recurrence of pluguo In build lugs which had been disinfected and renovated. As center after center of Infection wns found aud destroyed tho percentage of diseased rats begun to decrease, and In January, 1002, when, Judging from the history of previous years, plague should have hegun to spread among human beings, there was not q single case. In February one case occurred. In Manb, then1 were two cases, as aKulnt (:i in March of the preceding .var. ami he fore April, the disease had enmpiete- ly disappeared." ILL TO DO H. W.
