A COSTA RICAN VOLCANO.

On the Island of Costa Itico is the re-
mnrkahle volenno of Pons. The ernter
bus an altitude of about 8,500 feet. The
traveler who makes the ascent on
reaching the lip of the crater finds him
self at the brink of a vast perpendicu
lar sided jilt, at the bottom of which
lies n motionless pool of yellowish wa
ter. The sense of deadly stillness and
desolation is undisturbed by any indi
cation of life. The almost vertical
walls are devoid of even a vestige of
plant creation; not n bird wing- iis way
through the air, the surface of the [tool
Is without a ripple, and even the hu
man voice sounds strange and Incon
gruous. Suddenly the silence Is bro
ken by a great and startling under
ground rumbling, and a huge column
of a dark colored liquid Is thrown to a
vast height from a spot near the center
of the lake. The column ordinarily
rises to a height varying from 250 to
5oo feet. Almost Instantly a vast cloud
of vapor is evolved which surrounds the
column and rises to an Immense height.
A thousand feet below the lip is the
lake or pool, along the shores of which
It Is necessary to move about with care
because of numerous concealed holes

large excess of sulphuric acid. This

the pits are covered with slight shells
that render It almost Impossible to dis
tinguish between them and solid
ground. If a foot goes through this
thin crust It will bo found that in a
few days Hie shoe will be destroyed, as
the scams cannot resist tlie acid action.
The lake at closer view Is discovered to

Is Impossible to see for any distance.

ranges around 115 degrees F. During

tremendous column of dark liquid rose

carpet and coveted it. An assistant to

"M.v head limn says the owner of the

not sell his carpet at any price, hut he

STEWART & PARKS
The country people of England, as
well ns of several other countries, have
an Idea that the red of the robin’s
breast was caused by a drop of blood
which fell upon it at the crucifixion.
According to the story, the robin, com
miserating the condition of Christ, tried
to pluck the crown of thorns from Ills
brow, and, In doing so. got Its breast
wet with the blood flowing from the
wounds. The color became permanent,
being transmitted from generation to
generation, and thus, according to the
legend, the robin is a perpetual re
minder of the sufferings of Christ.
