FIF'TA Vl.M'.S a-GO. It was on tiie lirst ??f August, 1S49 that the royal yachts "escorted by four Avar vessels, and having on board the Queen, Uie Prince conswrt and their four chil? dren, lifted anchor and sailed from Cowes wcstwLiL'd tu Waterfprd.

Her second "visit was in __S53: and her third visit was in August 1S61" AVhen .she want with great pomp and amid general rejoicing. This tim?, the Queen made a ?lelizht ful trip to the Lakes of Killarney and was entertained at "Muckross Castle. She and the^Princc consort .?ailed on the beautiful waters of the famous lakes ?ind Ihe Prince sang ballads as the yacht courtesied across the waters In the cool, defieious noonday for which Killarney is noted. This trip was described in .verse and put to song by all the poets of the kingdom. It was shortly n.fter this trip that the Prince consort died and the Queen de? clared that she would never again visit Ireland. VISIT OF PRINCE. After the death of the Prince consort the Queen requested her son, the Prince of AYales, to make the jour;:ey for her, and in 1S65 he and the Princess of AA'ah-s paid a flying visit followed by another in ISTI. Recollections of the memorable visit of ihe Prince and Princess ?of Wales in 1S65 are .?till fresh, and no one Iilis for? gotten the 'universal and fervent ex? pressions of loyalty which it called forth, in spite o l'Air. Parnell's repeated demands that his followers should not. recognize the visit and the injunction o? the Aro'i'.-ishop of Cash el to preserve a "digniiied reserve." In 1S87 the 'Dukes of Clarence and A'ork. the two sons of the Prince of AVales. enjoyed a delightful journey to I Dublin, where they wero sin-piously enl teitaiiH-d. Five years later the Duke of ?Clarence died and Prince George succeed? ed to liis place in the'line of direct suc c?ssi?n to the English throne. . AVhen the Duke'.of A'ork was married i-i 1S33 he VMS urged to make Ireland ths srcr.e of his honeymoon, but it was not until 1S37 that he and his Duchess I found time to leave for so long a jour- j hey. j Their trip corresponded to the last I ene made by Victoria and Altert They left England' in the morning on the yacht Albert and Victoria, and arrived at rao?n oit Kingston, where they were n.et by the High Sherilf of Dublin and escorted to the Vice-Regal Lodge, where they became the guests of tho Earl aud Countess C.idogun. THE ROYAL TRIP. Tlie ceremonies were the same as ?wore previoii.iy observed and similar to all the royal welcomes that have al \vays been extended to the royal fam ?jly. The Duke and Duchess of York dis? embarked at neon while a royal salute was being fired ard the royal anthem played. The guard of honor at the land? ing stage and to the railway station was the "West-Kent Regiment. The railway station was elaborately decorated "with flowers, and a special train brought the Duke and [Duchess to where they wero receiv??.! by Lord iFrc>derick Roberts of Kandahar ami Watcrford, Commander of the forces in Ireland, and his ?lal'i, the Yorkshire Light Infantry, furnishing the guard of honor. All Uie troops in Dublin lined the railway station to Dublin Castle, where' the guard-of-honor was the Connaught Rangers. At the castle the royal visitors were received by the Earl and Coutess Ca dogan, and a salute was tired in Phoenix Park, after whieh the Earl and Coun Itess ?Ciidogan. with the staff of ?the Lord-Lieu tenant, joined the procession ami escorted tiie Duke and Duchess to the Vice-Regal Lodge, where tiie guard of-honor was furnished by tne Royal IrisJi Constabulary. The entire route was lavishly decorated much of the fittings and trappings used in London du: ing the jubilee fastl'/ities being .utilized for the -purimse. The remaining days ef the stay of tlie royal pair in Dublin wore devoted to visiting the sights of Dublin and to the installation of the Duke of York us a Knight of St. Patrick. ! The Queen ?hopes by her visit to Ire? land to arouse all the latent patriotism and also to convey to the Irish people her thanks for their valor in the South African war. [iitcrccssioiinl.

Says tho People Havo Otit?rqwn the Earth's Hab - i table Area. A fresh impetus^ has been given to work of explorers In the Arctics and in | unknown lan,ds by the recently-pub- ? lished statement of the Engiiah explor? er, Dr. Rivers, that the population of j the earth has outgrown its present acco mmodations and that newer and larger"" quarters must bo found for its inhabi? tants. Republics must be formed and lands must be found for them. AVhexe will the next republic be lo? cated? Tho Burghcs-s settled the subject years ago when tV.cy migrated to South -"?fri? ca and formed their republic. They elected rulers, made laws, built up the country and prospered. Are all portions cf the earch so filled up nov/ that future settlements arc im? possible; will those who want to get away in the overflow of any country find It Impossible to select a spot which shall be comfortable and fertile? Hardly! There are explorers out all Che time looking for such a land, and any hour may bring tidings of their success. Said Dr. Rivers on the subject: "AVith an unexplored area equal to one-fifth of all the known land on this globe, it can scarcely be claimed that | the work of the explorer is finished. , < "Even in America?North and South? j there, arc two millions of square miles I of which we know absolutely nothing. | In Australia there is an c.iual tract of ? Unexplored' territory- In ?Africa there J are ever six millions of square n.iles of j unknown land to attract the adventur? ous traveller, and in the polar regions there remain between nine and ten mil? lions still unmapped. "Surrounding the southern axis of the earth, we are warranted In drawing the coast-line of a vast unknown continent, covering tho greater pa.rt of the territory lying within the Antarctic circie. Such lands are as now charted have been sighted at a great distance, and tho mapping is greatly in need of authentl fifation. No one. or at least no one in modern times, has passed a whole year In the Antarctic, and such observations as have been made have b?3en confined to the short summer months. "So little is known of this vast terri? tory that speculation suggests that this unknown, and, in many places, unap? proachable, land, may prove to be a continent, which, -with the outlying is? lands, covers a region of eight million square miles, an area equal to one-sixth of the entire land surface of the globe? a continent as largo as North -Ameri? ca. "Africa will soon be an open book, if exporations in Uie future keeps pace with what has been accomplished in the past. A great part of tho work has been by what might be called amateur ex? plorers*?people who travel for amuse? ment and to add strange and fierce wild beasts to the game score. "Frederick Jackson, in command of th-> expedition fitted out in England by A. C. Harmswcwth to seek the North Pole by way of Franz Josef Land, was long at work on this polar problem; Nansen also aimed for the same point by his own way. whioh was to drift there In a soec ?.-?l'y-desl-med p?iip. and Robert Stein, of the United States Geological Survey, went to establish a new route by the way of the west coast of Ellesmcre Land and Jones Sound. "For the exploration of the south polar regions Dr. Frederick A. Cood. of Brooklyn, who wl?_- surgeon of Poafy's first nnd most successful expedition, de? voted himself to raising the funds ne? cessary to fit out. two vtBsspls to. proceed there, one of which remained during an entire winter. THE GA3J>EN OF BDEN. ? "But what do all these people expect to ??d upon these unexpl?ri?d lands? " "To be sure, -there' are those Who claim that the Garden of Eden was located at what is now the North Pole, and say that, owing to the fact that the earth Is fiatU-vied at th? poles, the surface is so much n?sarer the internal fires that the soil Is warm and the. verdure luxu? riant, and that there sti'.I exist there 'the descendants of some of-the children : of Adam and Eve. "There was a Captain . Symmes, an Englishman,' who lived for some years in LuisvUIe, Ky., who had a theory that there was 'a greater depression than the twelve miles which constitute the dif? ference between the polar and the equa, tcrial axes of the earth would account for, or.in fact, that there was a hole that 'ran directly through , tho Pirth from pole to pole, and people lived on the inside, as well as upon the orust of the (earth. This was known as 'Symmcs' Hole.' ' "Andr?e went to discover it. "? "There was once a'man in one of the Western towns ' in this country who had a plan for lightening a load by means oi gas that has never been applied to pol? ar travelling. *This AVestern thinker had an idea that by making a double garment of India rubber, one to fit tightly to his' person, and tho other loose enough to hold sufficient gas to take up the great? er part of his weight, his natural strength would enable him to travel rapidly and easily" He had the suit made and put it on one night, ns he didn't want to excite ridicule that would attend a fail? ure. Down to the gas-works he went and had his garment inflated tintiti he looked something like a gigantic foot? ball. "Then he started up the road and found. that the ordinary effort of walking would carry him along thirty or forty feet a-t a step, pnd he had a most delightful and exhilarating experience. Sometimes he would run, and then his steps would be a hundred feet apart, ami a jump would life him easily ever four or fivehundrod yards. He never enjoyed himself so much in his life. "A party clad in such suits might travel with great facility in the North. Neither humn-ocks, bergs nor lofty rocke wculd stop them, and the rubber, gas lined svits. would be absolutely imper? vious to the cold."
