Washington's Volcanic Peaks.
The state of Washington is trav
ersed north and south by mountains
of lava and lava flows, forming a sec
tion of that great system which
stretches from Alaska to Cape Horn
and marks upon the surface of the
earth probably tho greatest geologic
al catastrophe the world has ever
seen. To the westward of this range
stand three great volcanic peaks,
Mount Baker, Mount Tacoma and
Mount St. Helens. All aro active,
but not violently. Several eruptions
of MountBakerare recorded, notably
that of 1853, when streams of lava
covered the western slopes. Phila

He did not put his mother, Agrippina,
