Thus this remote mining camp, after a meteoric career anil growth Into a city, gradually Is resuming the status of a town. Situated on the bleak north coast of the ley storm-swept Boring sea, close to the Arctic circle, Nome Is frozen In and sunned In for nbout woven months of tho year. Its chief Industry, placer gold mining, depends upon the use of running water, therefore thu nctlvl ties must stop when the water con- ties muHt stop when the water gcnls. Hatliur tliim spend the winter In the extreme cold, wi long q extreme com, waning for the return of mild weather, a large part. of the population of Nome has always returned to the States In the fall, malting the Journey hack to the north In June, when navigation opens. Tho over-night creature of an tin- usual gold discovery, tho town grew up on a site that prohahly could not have been worse titled for n commu nity of human habitation. It is open to the full sweep of the violent storms and tho henvy wnvos that often bent In from the sea. It has a relatively narrow beach and Immediately within Is a strip of tundra, froen solid In winter, hut a sea of mud during the open season. In this mornss tho town grew up. In the early days men nnd animals lloundered through streets that were knee-deep In mud. Lntcr tho principal thoroughfares were boarded over. Knch summer fool hardy newcomers built structures on the beach only to have them wholly destroyed by tho blasts of September when, almost without warning, hugo waves swept to the edge of the tundrn and often Into tho town Itself. flold was llrst discovered near Nome In 1R0S, In ono of the numerous creeks that rise In tho hills back of tho town Getting Gold Out of Gravel. nnd cross tho tundrn to tho sen. This discovery was widely heralded through Alaska and the western Btntos. Thou sands flocked to the nelKhhorhood In tho Hummer of 1800 and the town was horn. That season the reninrknhle dis covery was made thnt the sand of the beach at tho edgo of tho town was rich In gold, and thousands of prospectors with crude equipment took out respect able fortunes. Tho bench could not he filed upon, but anyono wns penult ted to dig there. This unique fen ture of the Nome gold fields cev more than 20,000 people to the region the following summer, und the town grew Into n thriving city. Plncer miners burrowed Into tho sand like moles for 30 miles or more up nnd down tho bench. Nome took Its name from Capo Nome nearby, which was named as the result of a misunderstanding. It menus nothing unless It can bo con Btrued to signify "the nnmeless." It was discovered In tho examination of an enrly chnrt that when tho physical fontures of northwestern Alaska were named ono enpo had been overlooked. Tho penciled query "name?" wns mnde beside It. A copyist translated the scrawled question us "Nome," and the iMime has stuck. MEXTCO'TsKYSCRAPER PYRAMID A pyramid that may rival thoso of Egypt, tor size, and provo to bo oven older than the Nlleslnn piles, recently wna found nt Teotlhuacan, Mexico, Long ago two other pyramids, relics of the Toltee people of pro-Columbian times, were discovered among the vol. ennlc nshes around Sun Juan Teotl huacan, meaning "City of tho Oods." a vlllago nbout 23 miles northenst of Mexico City. Excavation of tho new pyramid mny help to lift tho veil which dims our knowledgo of those American pyramid builders, members of a bygono race. Certain It Is that tho pyramids of Teotlhuncnn, which already are wide ly known, havo kept their heads abovo I he vomiting of angry volcanoes for numborloss centuries, whllo It would appenr that the cities nearby were Without doubt burled In thomt bygone ages by volcanic eruptions. Tho Tol- tecs wore by tradition famotis thound butlders, and here It seems thoy min gled with their reverence for the Su premo Being the mythical religion of nstral worship. Their earliest temples were devoted to tho sun. Tho moon they worshiped ns his wife and the stars as his sisters, No Image wns allowed within those temples, and their offerings were perfumed tlowors and sweet-scented gums. The projecting stones of "HI Sol," tho highest pyramid, seen here nnd there over the pyramid, mark the up ward progress of those Indefntlgable workers until they gained the summit of their ambition. The pyramid wns divided Into stories" by placing a se ries of truncated pyramids one above the other. Two hundred and sixty-eight must bo climbed to reach the summit. The pyramid Is 210 feet In he'ght, nnd has n base nbout 701 feet square. The summit Is f0 by 105 feet square. Many strange Idols hnve been dbg up. Beautiful pieces of Jade and ob- sldlnn, nrrow-hends, Httlo heads of burnt, clay, earthen Jnrs of nntlque form, nnd others similar to those In use at the present time were found. One little niece of clotli tnnt was found Is carefully guarded In the mu seum. What wns Its uso? Many skulls, ns well ns some skeletons, have also been unearthed. 1). , THE DARDANELLES Provision has been made for an In ternational force along tho Darda nelles to guarantee free passage to ships, of nil nations through the straits and tho Sea of Marmora. liven our own Mississippi or Penn sylvania some dny may rest at anchor In this deep, swift strait, 87 miles in length, between the goose-neck penin sula of Giilllpoll and the mnlnland of Turkey, or steam Into the Sea of Mar- iiio.u and thence to the lJosphorus, for the American Jacklos to "Oh I" nnd "Ahl" nt the mosques and minarets of Constantinople In the distance. Mention of the Dardanelles conjures beforo the American mind the story of u fierce nnd Interest-compelling fight In 1015 and 1010 and n history which trails back Into dim mythological times when Leander swnm ncross Its three- fourths mllo width nt Abydos every night to tell the "snmo old story" to Hero, who hung her light out to In form him she wanted to henr It Lord Byron, not to be outdone ns u swimmer by his predecessor, "did" the Hellespont In 1810. Though it wns regarded as rather a prodigious feat when those two accomplished it, many modern athletes could don their trunks nnd visit their lady loves and regard the effort as a part of their training to keep physically lit. Xerxes, In 480 IJ. O., hnvlng an un canny feeling that his tbousnnds of Persians were not Ullllngtons nnd ICellermnns, lashed boats together as a hrldgoway, which Herodotus tells us groaned for seven days and nights, during tho unloading of Aslntlcs on tho soil of Europe. Alexnnder the Grcnt, about 100 years later, before ho was reduced to tears at the failure of the world to proVlde him excitement, tried out tho thrill of Xerxes bV leading his Macedonians into Asln. v Tho approach by which tho Ameri can soldier and sailor will enter Con stantinople mny well bo likened to tho entrance to n dwelling house tho Dar danelles being the outsldo or storm door, tho Sea of Marmora the vestl bule, nnd the lJosphorus the Inner door This storm door, which Is nbout tho width of the Hudsdn river, Is com manded by tho Dardanelles castles built by Mohammed II In 1-170. Ono fort Is on the Europenn side nnd ono on the Asiatic. Many guide books pub llsbed beforo 1014 enrtied this om inous and pronhetlc sentence: "The castles on both sides hnve been lately restored and armed with Krupp guns." According to the treaty of .luly, 1841 and tho Paris peace of 1850, no for clgn ship of wnr was allowed to en ter the strait without tho permission of Turkey, nnd merchnnt vessels only during the dny time, On the Aslntlc sldo a short distance from the fort lies the town of Darda nelles, which wns nnmed for Dnrda nus, the mythological ancestor of the Trojan king. Aoncns. and hence of the Roman people. This city of 15.000 Inhabitants, sltunted prettily on n fer tile stretch of innd, Ir tho point from which most of the excursionists start for the plains of Troy, n short dis tance beyond. Here, too, ships must stop to show their pnpers, the num ber of merchnnt vossels alone during a slnglo yenr numbering more .than 12,000. Across on the European side Is Gnlllpoll or "beautiful town." It was tho llrst European town to bo cap tured by tho Turks In 1H57. Suporhly located on tho steep projecting coast of tho Galllpoll peninsula, It commands a view of tho Aslntlc side tho plains of Troy and the broken font-hills of Mount Idn. On this narrow peninsula In April, 1015, allied forces were landed In an attempt to capture tho Darda- nollos. When the floods drove tho Brit ish soldiers from tholr trenches like rats out of holes Turkish snipers on the hills above picked them o almost as fast as they appeared. The cam paign was abandoned In January, 1010. WHERE PEARL BUTTONS COME FROM Ono frequently must follow n long trail to strango places to find tho origin ot tho most common conveniences of our homo, wardrobe, or dinner table. For exumplo, pearl buttons nro de- pendent upon preservation of certain MIHlsslppI river llsh. This oconotnlc curiosity Is explained in a communication to the National Geographic society by Hugh M. Smith, an follows: The perpetuation of the llsh sup ply In the Mississippi and Its tribu taries Involves n vory Important Indus try besldos fishing. Investigations con ducted for tho bureau of tlsherlos years ago showed an Intlmnto relation betweon certain kinds of fishes nnd the mussels, which yield valuable pearls and support a pearl-button In dustry which gives employment to about 20,000 persons, nnd has u prod uct worth from $.1,000,000 to $0,000, 000 nnnunlly. "The young mussels, of microscopic slzo when thrown off by their parents In myriads, need to pass the first few weeks of their Independent existence on the gills of fish. If the fishes are not present at the proper time, tho mussels cannot survive Furthermore -and this Is n most Interesting fea ture of the co-operation of fishes and mussels the young of particular kinds of mussels require the gills of par ticular kinds of fishes as nurseries. "The blnck bass Is host for several sorts of nnisnels, the crnpples for sov' ernl others, the cntflsh for others. The skip-Jack, a kind of herring, Is the only known host for the hrst jf nil mus sels; nnd ns this fish Is not by nny means nbundnnt, its innlntcnnnco Is.of prime Importance to the welfare of the button Industry. In 1010 more thnn one nnd a half million skip-Jacks were rescued. The peculiar requirements of tho young mussels halng been carefully determined, the bureau of fisheries has gone extensively Into the business ot artificial propagation of pearly mus sels by n method which Is fl vast Im provement on nature. The spawning mussels, held In ponds, arc at the criti cal period provided with tho special fishes needed for the nttnehment of the young. 'The fishes obtained In the rescue operations are turned Into the ponds nt the time the mussels nre spnwnlng and become thickly lnoculnted. They are then liberated In the open wnter and dlstrlbuto themselves nnd the mus sels throughout n wide stnatch of river. Thus two Important branches of the bureau's work go hand In hand." RUSSIA: THE HEIRESS OF FAMINES Never, in civilized times, have so many old-world nations felt the pinch of hunger at once; yet suffering from want of food is no fiew story to many of them. Especlully has Itussia been the luckless heir to periods of ueur starvation Writing to the National Geographic society, Ralph A. Graves tells of Rus sian famines of the past as follows: "Next to tho proletariat of India and Chlnn, tlie Russian pcusnnt has felt the pinch of poverty und hunger more keenly und more frequently than uny other citizen on earth "Ono of the earliest famines In Rus sla of which there Is any dollnltc rec ord wns that of 1GO0, which continued for thrco years, with a death toll of 500,000 peasants. Cats, dogs and rats were eaten ; the strong overenme the weak, und In the shambles of the pub lie murkets human flesh was sold. Mill tltudes of the dead were found with their mouths stuffed with straw. "Three Russlnn fnmlnes of compnra tlvely recent date were nmong the most severe In the history of the couu try. They occurred In 1S91, 1000 and 1011. During tho ten years following the llrst of these periods of dearth the government allotted ncnrlv $125.' 000,000 f;or relief work, but tho sums were not always Judiciously expended. "In 1000 tho government gave 40 pounds of Hour u month to ull persons under eighteen and over llfty-nlno years of age. All peasants between those ages and infunts under one year of age received no allowance, und It became necessary for the younger nnd older members of the family to share their bare pittance with those fr whom no provision was made. The suffering was .intense and the mortal lty exceedingly henvy, but the avail able statistics are not wholly relluble, "The famine of 1011 extended over onc-t.hlrd of tho area of the empire In Europe nnd nffected more or less dl rectly .'10,000,000 people, while 8,000, 000 were reduced to starvation.
