Borcb greTink reviews briefly the results of bis Tisit to South Victoria Land in 1895. Be says: , "In my opinion the great southern continent is the Greenland of the south, with Just aa many possibilities. I do fully believe that hitherto unknown animal life will be found on South Vic toria Land. Captain Larsen on the whaler Jason brought back petrified wood from Graham Land, south of Cape Horn, which fact, of course, proves great climatio changes in those regions dur ing succeeding periods. As our knowl edge of the great southern continent now stands, we must believe it really to be a continent, and not a mere accu mulation of islands, as well from the appearance of the land, as it has been sighted nearly all round, as also from sea soundings, and last, but not least, from the nature of those specimens of rocks which I brought back with me from Victoria Land. If it is ail land, it is probably of an area twice the size of Australia. "Already the first sight of Victoria Land convinces one that it is of volcan ic origin. The volcanoes of Victoria Land show tendency to follow the same line. From Mount Sabine to Mount Melbourne the trend is south southwesterly. Mount Erebus and Mount Terror lie almost due south of Mount Sabine. Farther north from Mount Sa bine tbe great earth fold, on the septum of which this chain of volcanoes is sit uated, probably bends a little westward, as shown partly by the surroundings, partly by the position of Balleny is land. Northwest of Balleny island the great fold trends perhaps to tbe knot ting point between the Tasmanian axia of folding and that of New Zealand, the former, perhaps, running through Roy al Company island, and the latter through or near Auckland island and Macquarie island. The knotting point would probably bo somewhere (approx imately) near tbe intersection of the six tieth parallel of south latitude with the one hundred and fiftieth meridian of longitudo east from Greenwich. It would just join the line of extinct vol canoes ajong ease Australia on tbe west, and, perhaps, the active volcanic cone of the North island of New Zealand, or, at all events, the fold which hnnnila that continent on the east. "Traced in the onmiita dirpefinn the volcanic zone probably runs through oeoi islands, tne active volcanoes of Christcnsen and Sarsee. and thrnnirh Mount Haddington, an extinct volcano in inuity land, to faulet and Britfg man islands, active volcanoes." m.vfl rmKAav BAL.X leaaaaftlte Apply into tba aoatma.

PAVUQAJTD A B8EY0IS WAITED City Kai Iaatiae a ta Frepaee vt Week ha greeted Tksea a tha Xext SSawli The city council held its semi monthly session last night. Tbe rules were suspended after tbe reading of the minutes to hear a committee representing the Modern Woodmen camps oi xtock Island. Ex-Mayor B. . F. Knox represented the committee, composed of himself, J. E. Larkin and E. Sellpenstell, as spokesman, tie said tbat nock Isi sad would once mora make an at tempt to have the head offices or dered removed to this city by the bead camp meeting at vuouque. tie said that a number of delegates from the west intended stopping off in Bock Island for a short time enroute to the head camp on the morning of May SI, and he asked tbat the coun cil meet them and do all possible to impress them with the advantages and beauties of this city. On mo tion of Aid. Maucxer a com mittee of three which wan composed of Aids. Maucker, Nel son and Johnson was appointed by tbe myor to confer witb tbe loiat committee from the Woodmen to re port at the next meeting of the coun cil. Aid. Winter said the waterworks committee, of which he is chairman was considering ways and means looking to the erection of a reservoir on the bluff region and would be ready to submit a proposition to the council in the near future. The annual estimate of the expen ditures of the fiscal year as submit ted by City Clerk Huesing shows a surplus of $34,000, after the allow ance has been made for the running expenses. - In the estimate $16,oou for payment on the Twenty-fourth street storm drain improvement is stipulated. Aid. Kennedy wanted to know il tbe city Intended paying for that job. Mayor Medill aaid be did not understand so; that tbat was a matter to be settled later; that the item was simply given for the infor mation of tbe council, which would make the annual appropriations neit Munday night. As to laipeoeeasaata. Speaking of Improvements Aid Nelson said tbe people of the east end oi tbe city wanted Thirtieth street paved. It is much needed, he said, and he moved that an ordnance be prepared for thla improvement Aid. Kennedy amended the motion that Seventh avenue from Twenty third street to I hirtieth street be in eluded. Aid. Maucker held that tbe aldermen should wait nntil the ap propriations wt-ra maoe. tie bad im provements which he wants made; the levee should be improved; a new reser 7oir is needed, etc and he sug gested mat tne aldermen wa.it awhile, look the situation over thor oughly, get together, have an under standing, and agre to what is be for the city generally. Mayor Med ill said he realised as wrll as anyone that Thirtieth atreei needs improving. But the watei qa stioowaa important just now. The filter system had to be ex tended, and immediately, or a reser voir had to be built. The latter he most favored It ia quite evident. and tbe people generally expect, he said, that something will be done this year looking to tbe Improv ing of tha water system. Surely something necessarily will have to be slighted. All can't be "oae at onoe. . The mayor said all these mat ters would, be hoped, be settled next Monday evening. The ques tion is now whether the money shall be divided in improving the water system and to the continuing- of the sidewalk and paving, or what. The season is getting late and he be lieved the policy to be pursued the ooming year in this respect should be settled at once. The mayor suggested that the council have the engineer prepare an estimate of the cost of improving xhtrtietb street, seventh avenue from Twenty-third ' to thirtieth street. Seventh avenue from Twelfth to Seventeenth street. First avenue and the levee, the building of a res ervoir, etc, and bring them in at tbe next meeting; then tbe council could see what could be done the coming year. Aid. Concannon moved that the city engineer be instructed to prepare estimates aa augrested by tha mayor, including tha paving ot rwenty-seoonn street" irom seventh to ninth avenue and tne macadamis ing of Twenty-first street from Sixth to Twelfth avenue. Tha latter tw. improvements were asked for bv Aid. Wheel an. Tbe motion carried. Lock tka Door Before the herse ia atolen.

What eohn Barronghs and Others Stay oi the Book Crook Bisuiiatluav In his entertaining book '.'Wake Robin," and in tbe chapter entitled "Spring at tbe Capital" f pages 166-166), John Burroughs says: "Outside of the city limits the great point of interest to the rambler and lover of nature is the Bock creek region. Bock creek is a large, rough, rapid stream which has its source in tbe interior of Maryland and flows into tbe Potomac between Washington and Georgetown. Its course for five or six miles out of Washington is marked by great diversity of scenery. Flowing in a deep valley, which now and then becomes a wild gorge with overhanging rocks and high, precipitous headlands, for tbe most part wooded here reposing in long, dark reaches, there sweeping and hurrying around a certain bend or over a rocky bed; re ceiving at short intervals small runs and spring rivulets, which open up vis tas and outlooks to tbe right and left of the most charming description Bock creek has an abundance of all the ele ments that make up not only pleasing but wild and rugged scenery. Tbere is perhaps not another city in the Union that has on its very threshold so much natural beauty and grandeur, such as men seek for in remote forests and mountains. A few touches of art would convert this whole region, extending from Georgetown to what is known as Crystal springs, not more than two miles from the present state depart ment, into a park tin equaled by any thing in the world. Tbere are passages between these two points as wild and savage and apparently as remote from civilization as anything one meets with in the mountain sources of the Hudson or the Delaware. ""Life and Light " Bat-pipes In New Guinea. Mr. Angus MacKenzie, an old miner well known aa a prospector in northern Queensland, Australia, recently arrived from New Guinea with a large quanti ty of gold and thinks there is a great advantage in being a Scotchman. When he left for New Guinea, be took bag pipes with him, and to their agency he attributes much of tbe Inck which fell to his lot while prospecting for gold. He said that the natives would do any thing for him, providing he played the pipes to them at night. They looked af ter bim and bis effects and acted as por ters without other pay than the music of the pipes. They took him over new country and showed bim where heavy gold could be obtained. It is possible that intending prospectors in New Gui nea might lay out their money to worse advantage than ha the purchase of bag pipes. In any case, Mr. MacKenzie re gards the pipes as the best and most judicious investment he ever made New York Sun. T. J. Rlaolrm. tT11t AV V.U1UJC UJ UM... w Blackmore. Pittsburg.

Washington Post Many a reader of the flictitious ad ventures of the famous hero of tbe "Muncfaausenaid" (which waa first published in English at Oxford during the lifetime of this prince of all liars) has no conception that the hero was a real person. Baron Hieronymns Karl xriedricb von Munchausen waa a Han overian nobleman, a subject of our first three Georges. He waa born in 1? SO and died in 17S7. He took service in a Bua sian cavalry regiment, but retired in old age to his ancestral estate at Boden werder, in Hanover, where be became notorious for tbe magnificent lie about his military adventures with which be used to entertain his neighbors at bis nospitable board. A collection of these stories, entitled ' Vademecum fur lustige Jjente,' waa published at Berlin in 1781. without tbe Baron's permission. The English work, 'Baron Munchausen's Narrative of His Marvelous Travels and Campaigns In Russia,' waa an expan sion and improvement of the Berlin col lection. English Exchange.
