SERVISS Science Gives Grounds for Belief that the Fabled Romance May Have Been a Reality I HAVE received many letter ask ing -whether the lost continent of Atlantis existed and was de stroyed by a crest calamity which "ay have been the flood. In the latest volume of the "Smithsonian Reports," published In IMS. there Is an eloquent defense of the old legend by Pierre Termier. director of the Geologic Caart of Trance, who finds In the wide spread belief that It enjoyed throughout . antiquity and the Middle Ares an explanation of .the universally diffused fear of the At- , lantlo a the "sea of darkness." ! which was not dissipated until after the adventure of Columbus upon lta dreaded waves. Eo Jaunting was the mystical memory of the sunken continent that Columbus, In 1L Termlefa pinion, required a superhuman courage to brave a voyage across i that fearful aea. and "to pass the gulf where sleeps Atlantis." There is hardly anything more remarkable in literary history than the dominance which Plato's At lantis story has maintained over the imagination of mankind for two thousand years, for It was Plato whq Introduced the legend In an en during form. "Where he really ob tained his Information we do not know. He ascribed It to Solon, whom he represents as receiving the tradition of Atlantic, durinr his travels In" Egypt, from an old priest r Sals; but Plato gives no refer ence to any work of Solon In which, the story might be found. It has been a common proceeding en the 'part of those whe utterly reject the idea that any truth un derlie! the legend to assume that Flato Invented It out of whole cloth, but iL Termier, after reviewing Plato's account In the Tlraaeus." saysr "Tiers surely Is a narrative which baa not all the coloring of a fable. It la of an exactness almost dentine." The date given to Solon of the catastrophe that sunk Atlantis beneath the sea was. Plato says, B.OOO years before Solon's own time, ' which would xsake It alout 11,500 years ago, measured from our time. The size of Atlantis Is very Indefinitely described by Plato, who simply says that It was larger than Asia, Minor er Libya. Its location. Solon was told by the priest, was beyond the Pillars of Hercules. I. e., .the mountainous capes at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. After Its engulfment the sea was muddy. Infested with rocks and shoals, and covered with dark mists "In Atlantis," said the priest, "reigned kings of amazing power Ther had under their dominion the entire Island CAtlsntlsJ. as well as J Little Bobbie's Pa By William F.

Atlantis several other Islands, and some parts of the continent (Europe). Finally, the narrative continues, they under took by a single blow 'to subjugate all the peoples living east of the Pillars of Hercules. Athens alone successfully stood against them and sxved Europe from the conquerors, who; as the nations under the lead of Athene rose aga.nst them, wr drj".n bsrk to Atlantis. After'that vh danger was forever remoed lj'the awfulywork of nature, durlag "one single day and one fatal night." In which brief time Atlantis, by a terrible outbreak, of earthquakes and Inundations, was swallowed up. This, lifbrlef, ts the story thet has haunted the human' mind during many ages like a nightmare 'drenm, giving birth to many subsidiary leg ends and myths, and which "will not down" In spite of all the scientlfio skepticism with whlrh, in lster times. It has been received. But, as M. Termler's defense show the guns of science have not always or everywhere been turned against .the famous legend. Geological and archaeological arguments have been found to support It Modern deep-sea explorations have proved that the bottom of ths Atlantic around the alleged site of Atlantis Is variegated with eleva tions and depressions, valfeys and mountains, which the Imagination can readily transform Into the face of a drowned continent. The Aiores. the Cararles. and other Isolated groups, of Islands, crowned with volcarlc peaks, and rising steepl out of the water, live been looked upon as possibly projections from sea-burled Atlantis. The vast extent of the irregulari ties on the floor of the Atlantic leads M. Termier to conjecture that the submersion of a former great continent. In some places connect ing the Old and New "Worlds, was a slow process, which went on for ages, the land called Atlantis being its final remnant, the destruction of which was as sudden ss It was un expected. Into the geological argu ments on' the other side, I have no space to enter. But there Is another line of ar gnraent adopted by the supporters if the legend, which Is equally Inter esting. Plato resumed the story of Atlantis In another of his dialogues, the "Crlstlas," in which he described the people, the government, the cit ies and the wealth of Atlantis, ant. concerning this M. Termier says: "The geographic description of the Island Is not of the sort which one Jkes about find forgets. It tallies well with what we would Imagine to-day of a great land submerged In the region of the AxoreVand en Jojing the eternal Springtime which la the endowment of these Islands" As to the Inhabitants of Atlantis the question haa been raised whetheV some of the peculiar peo ples of western Europe, and Its bordering Islands, peoples who. like the Basques, or the Guanchee, have customs and peculiarities of their own, or apeak languages posiess lng no root relationship with other tongues, may not be descended from remnants of the population of the vanished continent, wtiose imposing power and splendor have left aa undying echo 1a the wort.

If at all. and Is a canker which finally eats Into the soul. This stain cannot be washed away through physical oleanstng, or can lt he absolved through advancement of the victim to a place of material success. Tour boy thinks In words and phrases, in silent or mental repeti tions of the expression he hears then use. These quiet reflections re not chosen by him. He is. their victim. Bat as they course through his memory these sentiments tend all the while to go eat in action. By coarse-mtndedness I mean the habitual thinking ef unprintable expressions which are the stock phrases of those who employ vulgar spltheta. Unfortunately this. blight of the mind has spread Its polson sus Infection during boyhood among thousands who appear outwardly decent and respectable. Recently I met a man ef middle years.

Making Your Job Pay CHARACTER AS A VALUABLE ASSET Yqu Can't Succeed Unless You Have a High Purpose and High Ideals Back of You. By Beatrice Fairfax. Character aa Baslaeaa Asset, EVERY business man orwootn must stand or fall "by his qualities of character as. well as those of mind. Mental development alone produ ces a "thinking maehjne' cold. Im personal, mechanical, unlovable. It requires personality Individuality to command the regard and liking and faith of employers or associates or employes. ' A few years ago the owner and founder of one of New TorJc'a 'larg est specialty housss died ana left the "good will" of his business, to gether with Its copyrighted name and a controlling amount of stock to one of bis trusted employes. 1 - Bo you know what.that 'meant? It signified that the man who bad built up an honest house of good character felt that he dared leave the thing he had created to a suc cessor who was related. to him only In alms, character and; Ideals. He knew the name he had made honorr able would not be smirched that the controlling amount of stock be longed to the msn who would use lt even as the founder of the busi ness (tad used It But he knew more that the very spirit of hts be loved business would continue un der the guidance of his successor. Habits "of honesty and loyalty and perseverance are easy to form or not to form, as the case may be. Character Itself depends on these habits. Reputation comes from char acter. And standing In the busi ness world comes from reputation based on character. The big credit systems are based on character as well ss on bank accounts.

Do not expect the teacher to button up lit tle Mary's coat when school Is "out." Underwear and frocks should be extremely simple, so that the child can dress herself in the morning. Metiers are generally quite busy getting breakfast, fixing lunches; eta and if the child can dress her stlf It Is a great convenience. When planning the underwear do not have too many buttons, because tiny fingers cannot manage without mother's or teacher's help. Try lit tle flannel bloomers with elastic. To make these use white daisy cloth or outing flannel. Tarn narrow hems at the knees and waistband, and run the elastic through these casings. These may be slipped on In a Jiffy and do away with buttons. A princess slip will be more con venient for the child than, the petti coat and waist attached.' In cold weather It la well to make a slip of flannel and one of muslin. A de lightfully simple model Is made by folding the material In two and cutting th elip In one place. Cut a round neck and rather large arm hole and slope the material outward toward the bottom.

M. nPHEP.E are eelflahness and deceit as the foundation of this man's fctlons. He had no right to give you the Impression he was free, no right to put ou in the untenable position In. which you now find yourself as the fiancee of a mar ried man. How do you know that he Is ever going to be free to marry ou? How can you satiafy your conscience that you are not a thief of love and guilty of stealing your happiness from another woman? It seems to me. Judging by the data you have given me. that your best chance of happiness lies In putting' out of your life a man who has not dealt honestly or honorably with you or with the mother "ot his children.
