Thenow limp youth walked painfully up to the 'platform, made a bow, and began: "' MABCO BOZZABIS.' "' At midnight in his guarded tent, The Turk lay dreaming of the hour When Greece, her knees '" Here memory failed him. " Greecc, her knees-Greece, her knees-Greece, her knees " At this point tho master, unalile to resist the temptation, interrupted: «, " Grease her kneeB onoe moro, Theo dore, then maybe she will go!"

A floating barrier of pumiee stone, nineteen miles long, over one thousand yards wide, and fifteen yards deep, closing a seaport to all vessels as effeotually as a boom could do, is not the sort of thing one is likely to forget. And yet that was one of the results of the Erakatoa eruption, the port being Telok Betoung in Sunda Straits. Formed in a fow hours, it would almost seem to: bo :a supreme effort of nature in the pumice-making line, were it not that such immense quantities are found at the bottom of the Bea. A.gueer plaoe for pumice stone; but pumice when produced is really .heavy; it is only the air cavities in it that make it light, and as it floats it becomes water-logged, and down it goes. .
