The Indian name of Fairfield was Uncoa, and it was the Manila Bay or the Santiago in those days in point of interest, for it was in that town that Rpger Ludlow had one of his famous swamp fights with the Indi ans, and about that fight Mrs. Whit more of Hartford tells many inci dents of the capture of Wethersfield girls by the Indians, their protection by the wife of the chief Mononotto and of the fate of the friendly Indian afterwards.

Why, where is Patagonia? was the astonishing query recently put to me by an old ' schoolmate! as, carelessly turning the leaves of his little son's geography, he suddenly came upon a recent " map of . South America. The boundaries which we boys had once re garded as immutable have changed, and the map which the vivid impres sion of youth had engraved firmly up on our memory was no longer in exist- encaTSesp man of considerable intelligence, is not an isolated instance. The rapidity of our geographical progress within the last decades has rendered it extremely difficult for the layman to follow the course of events. In 1825 three great continents were practically unexplored. Australia, or New Holland, as it was then called, was nothing more than a terra incog nita a mere geographical idea; Hhe vast expanse of Africa, with the ex ception of the Mediterranean region and the little settlement at the Cape, was still the land of wonder and con jecture and as it had been In the days of the Romans, while central Asia, with its millions of inhabitants, was effectively closed to Europeans. In the south nature had reared her mighty barrier, the Himalayas, and in the east we find China immured, both in a literal and figurative sense, within that gigantic wall of exclusiveness which seemed designed to screen forever from the prying gaze of the civilized world the sacred and inviolable "empire of the sun." Yet it is upon the American continent that the most marvelous changes have been wrought changes whose magni tude we, the living witnesses, can scarcely appreciate. As the rising flood imperceptibly, but steadily, ad vances the water line, thus constantly altering the contour of the beach, so the swelling tide of population, surg ing westward, has through this entire century surely, but incessantly, push ed forward that long western boundary line of 1,600 miles, the outlines 1 of which have never for a moment re mained the same.
