His fortmer journey a in Central Asia-from 1813 to 18BT-wal ' thought, as he modestly observes, to marl an advance in the geographical knowledge of these regions, but he considers the re suits of this one to be much more valuable. In It he has traversed a great extent of a hitherto untrodden ground, and has been able, as he justly claims, "to lift the veil which for a thousand years has hidden vasl stretches of the mountains and desert re gions of the heart of Asia." They are with out a rival on the surface of the globe. The mountain chains Of Central Asia ra diate from the Pamirs-the roof of the world-like giant roots from an old tree a stump. Two of these, the vast compound mass of the Himalayas and Karakorame and the chain of the Kuen-lun, Ificlose the a greatest and loftiest mountain plateau in the world, not a little of which overtops Moni Blanc, and much is as high above the sea a level as the summit of the Wetterhorn-e region of scorching heat in the summer sur and bitter cold in the winter frost. Be a tween the Kuen-lun and the Thian-shan b another plateau, more level and lower, sink ing eastward down to the great rainless a Gobi desert. On his former journey Dr Sven Hedin's explorations carried him oves * Turkestan from the foot of the Thian-shar a to the Lob Nor. This time he has not only worked out many points previously incom * plete, but has examined the desert still fur a ther east, and explored a large area o eastern Tibet from north to south. He was * turned back, though without injury, in tw( a attempts to penetrate as far as Lhassa and finally made his ,way westward to Leh Traveling in such regions is very laborious and entails much hardship, yet Dr. Sven He o din's industry seems unaffected by fatigue The amount of work he has accomplished is Q prodigious. His chartographical material e he says, consists of not less than 1,14( sheets, which, it arranged end to end in i row, would measure over 1,000 feet; 114 as tronomical determinations have been se cured to check this; he has kept a complete meteorological journal, making records thrice a day; he has taken over 2,000 photo graphs, made archaeological, zoological ani botanical collections; besides bringing aboul seven hundred rock specimens to illustrate the geology of Tibet, of which at preseni very little is known. Throughout, he says he endeavored to avoid traveling over routes already traversed by other ekplorers. Bul the earlier part of his journey was in a re gion which he had already visited, north ern Turkestan, its object, which was com pletely successful, being to trace accurately the couse of the River Tarim. Both that and the less important Cher chen-Daria are frequently changing theis course, abandoning one channel to excavate another. The former river shows a constan1 a tendency to shift bed toward the south, anc on that side throws off numerous arms of secondary channels, into which occasionall3 o it diverts its main stream. These vagranl tendencies are rendered easy by the nature of the region traversed-an arid lowland o with the shifting sand dunes for hills. Ir one place, on the right bank of the Tarim a chain of long lakes bordered by sterile sands has been formed, which are continue] between dunes sometimes more than a hun dred yards high, by a series of depression each covered by clay and absolutely barren This tendency to shift its bed becomes more pronounced as the river approaches the re gion where it perishes among the deseri sands, and the Tarim, "instead of empty ing itself into the ancient lake of Lob Nor goes on past it and forms the lake o1 Kara-Koshun, further to the south." The position of the former has been s matter of dispute, which Dr. Sven Hedin has set at rest. The ancient lake has now corn pletely dried up, but on its northern shore he found ruins of towns, settlements an' temples, as well as manuscripts and tablets of tamarisk wood in Chinese characters dating from the third to the fifth century o the present era, together with indubitabl traces of an ancient caravan road. Hi former journey was rewarded by simila archaeological discoveries further west I o Turkestan, so that evidently the region wa much more flourishing some fifteen centu ries ago. Partly this has been the work o i man, but perhaps it is still more due to i f change in climate. A very large portion o . Central Asia, not only in the region east o the Thian-shan, but even in that to th west of this chain, seems to be graduall: drying up, but what may be the cause of th desiccation no one can venture to declar positively. IT'S TO BE A HARD WINTER. At Least So Indicates the Prairie Dog and the Big Bear at Providence. From the Providence Journal. The coming winter will be a hard one 4 This is not the idle statement of an alarm * ist. nor is it a political canard. It has it foundations deep in the realm of science for the prairie dogs at Roger William X Park have made the prophecy and thei A arguments are irrefutable. Having given all the testimony the: Sdeemed necessary on this point, the prairi 4dogs retired firom public view ori Sunda: Xto the warm bottoms of the holes they hav~ )*dug in their pen at the park and refused t )be interviewed.

The higher th ' mound the colder the winter, is the we 4Max reads the omens, the height of th mound depending, of course, on the dept *of the burrow, and those who believe wit +him, that a prairie dog can forecast mor 'faccurately than the best government shar' with barometers, anometers and other it 7tricate paraphernalia, will do well to mak up their minds without further delay fe chilly days to come. Included in this clai Xwill be all who have studied the ways< the far-sighted prairie dog. The little an mals get down in their burrows and sta there until the good summer time come round again. Then they climb up, throa back the blinds, and ask If the coal strik is over. If .the word of the prairie dog is not suffl cient on this subject, with which they clair Sto be as conversant as any member of th animal kingdom. Jack, the black bear, hs something to offer. Since Jack made a attack several months ago on a little gi at the park he has been conllned to onec the barred cages of the main animal house Jack unquestionably looks prepared Whereas a few months back he resemble a furrier's sign which has seen several hat *seasons, he has now provided himmel against cold weather with a new coat. glossy, thick, black fur, and this cover two or three Inches of solid fat which Jac has taken on lest the bread supply fall short. It is well known that when beat -are at large they select in the fall a hollo Stree or secluded nook of rocks and there to sleep for the winter. If they awake and hear the blissard howling outside thej retreat they suck their paws and doze o agairr.

During their long sleep without foe the fat with which their carcasses are is crusted is completely consumed, aid ti more severe the winter, according to thej autumnal forecasts, the more fat the *take on.
