A IIYDH0TIIERMAL PHENOMENON.
A Sfleiillxfs Urport on the (.rent
Uriii'tlons in New Zealand.
Dr. Hector, of Auckland, lias inndo
:i report on tho eruptions, from which
wo extract tho main points. Ho says
that there can bo but little question
that it. was a purely hydrothcrnml phe
nomenon on a jjijjsmtie scale; that it is
quite local and not of deep origin, and
that all danger is past for tho present.
The only fresh activity which can rea
sonably be expected is that when stitH
ciont rain lias fallen it may cause an
overllow of Oknroo lake into tho south
ond of tho great fissure, us tho former
outlet appears to be completely fill
The most remarkable feature of tho
eruption, Dr. Hector says, wa3 tho
great fissure. This ltssuro seems to
cominenco as a narrow rift at tho
northern end, from the great rent which
has I icon formed in tho south end of
Taruwera mountain. Tho rent is a
most wonderful feature. It is not a
slip from the mountain side, but ap
poars as if a portion of tho mountain,
measuring two thousand feet by live
hundred feet, and threo hundred feet
deep, had been blown out, leaving a
ragged, rocky chasm, from which steam
was being discharged in rapidly sue
eeeding pull's. Tho eastern side of this
chasm was brirhtlv tinted, as if bv tho
olllorcscent deposit of a mineral sub
stance, probably ferro-chlorides. Sul
phur has been mentioned as a deposit
from this recent outbuilt by somo who
have witnessed it, but this is hardly
possible result of such rapid volcanic
development. Tho direction of tho
fissure, as far as could bo ascertained,
is in the general line that would con
ncet all tho more active geysers bo
tween Tongariro and White island.
ilie quantity ol matter wlticn was
ejected during tho dill'ercnt phases of
tho eruption was very larjro. Nono of
tho stono fragments collected aro other
than portions of rock of tho district,
nor do they present in the slightest dc
grec tho character of volcanic bombs
or lapilli, formed from lava or rock
material In tho stato of fusion. Yet
thoro can bo no doubt, if wo can ac
cept tho cvidonco of eye-witnesses,
that theso rock fragmonts must have, in
some cases, reaencu tnc grounu in a
partially incandescent state. Next fol
lowed the great ejection of pumico
sand, which forms enormous deposits
m two localitius. Over a district of
twenty-four square miles south of Tar
awera lake, nnd on an almost equal
area to tho north and cast of the lake,
the whole surface of tho country has
been covered with pumico sand, so
thickly as to obliterate in a great
nieasuro the natural features, partly
filling gullies and enveloping all the
hills as if with a deep inantlo of snow,
so mat not a trace oi voirotation can
bo seen from tho highest peaks. Tho
impact of tho moist deposit when it fell
must have been verv great from tho
eflects which it produced at Wairoa,
wncr:; it apneas io navo attained to a
maximum thickness of about twelve
inches in tho open level places free
from any inihieneo that would causo it
to drift on tho Hats, for about tho
bridge in tho outlet of Rotokakahi its
depth was found to bo nine inches, and
in tho Tikitapu bush four inches, and
from that point it gradually decreased
toward tho north. Tho action of rain
upon tho mud rapidly converts it into
asemi-iliiid condition, in which stato it
slides oil" tho hill slopes and fills tho
lower ground and water courses, and
when it lias been thickly depos.ted it
will thus be a constant source of dan
ger tor soino timo to conic. The dis
tance to which tiiis dust was carried
was very great, exceeding at least 120
miles from tho focus in a direction bo-
tween the north and east, and tho
time it remained suspended in the air
must linvo Ijjcii at least twenty-four
hours, as wo passed through it in the Hi-
nemoa when crossing tho Hay of I'lonty,
as a peculiar yoiiowipn log, charged
with pungent acid vapor and dust and
on tho following aftornoon wo recog
nized tho same fog cloud still suspend
ed in tho air toward tho north. San
Yours In Haste.

With thren bllm letter Interlaced,
Above the notoA the used to write
Signing them ever, ""Voiim in haste."

How sweet to think that fn the whirl
E!io kept one moment all for me,
To glad my heart my radluutKhll
Tho world It old and to am I;
Aud since my love became my wife
It keems to me 1'vo bomeliow U-cu
Too late for everything In life.

With panting breath and boots unlaced,
True to her vows of joro he' been,

Art and Literature in Now York.
Hy the t me tho next geiierat'.on ap
pears, private libraries will probabl
be very few. The taste for makin
collections of books in tho househol
certainly is not to-day what it was
generation ago. Thirty or forty year
past tho place of books in tho famil
was important. Most young pcoplo
setting up housekeeping felt that a few
volumes to set on" the parlor or sitting
room wero as osential as the usua
furniture, and the beginning thus mad
was gonorally followed up as tho house
hold grew. A taste for books was re
garded as an evidence of social merit, am
visitors wero shown tho library, whoth
or largo or little, with a3 much satisfac
tiou as is taken in showing pictures and
bric-a-brac to-day. Tho literary taste
as shown in this way was even stronger
a generation earlier, and colleetons
were mado which would not bo though
of at tho present time. It was custom
ary then not only to read books, but lo
keep thoni, and oven to pass them
heirlooms from ono generation to an
other. Hut tho tasto m this respect
has undcrirono a cicat change. Art
has taken tho placo of literature in the
average houso. Instead of woll-lillcd
book shclvos in a special placo thorn
are pictures and varieties of bric-a-brac
all over tho houso. Thoro may bo
much readimr done as over, hut its
form, in tho book sense, is wliollv dif
ferent. The cheap library havo played
tho mischief with substantial volumes
Theso are bought to bo read, not kept,
and when read they aro thrown away
or aold for old minor. Thoy must bo
of a light sort, too, else thoy won't bo
read at all. All tho publishers com
plain that solid books do not soli any
more, except in a limited way. The
literary taste of tho time is very inucl
liko tho theatrical taste. The demand
is for the kind of plays to laugh at and
not think of at all. Tho change be
comes more markod ovcry year, and
thoro in no reason to think it will not
ooutiuuo. Cor. Detroit Free Press.
Stories of Dr. Kompor.

On his way homo to dinner one day,

"Why, my dear!" exclaimed his wife
in surprise, "you havo forgotten some
thing. You havo not asked tho bless
"Yes, I havo too," blullly responded
the doctor. "1'vo asked tho Lord to

Prince Bismarck complained not
long ago of tho way our foreign ollico
inundated him with dispatchos, but
even tho writing powers of Downing
street would not bo a patch upon those
of Chinese statesmon. A masterly pol
ioy of inaction is there studied to per
fection, and it is raro that any case is
settled until roams of paper have boon
covered in thrashing out ovory detail
A Chiueso dispatch must be written in
a certain stereotyped form, and in ac
knowlcdging a dispatch you must llrst
begin by quoting in oxtensoall tho doc
uments to which you aro replying.
This system of reproducing all tho pre
vious correspondence proves very cum
bersome as tho caso gradually devel
