It was formerly' say fifty years ago,
uncommon for a new Island to appear
above or an old one to disappear
beneath the waves of the I'acitic ocean.
Such occurrences were sometimes noted
as often as two or three times a year
and were so common aa to hardly
excite comment among navigators and
scientists. Of late, however, the
Pacific has been "pacific" indeed. It
is thirty-six years since the last Island
disappeard, aud exactly a quarter of a
century since tbe last new one popped
up its head in tbe "greatest of oceans.

In their occasional trips to town,
farmers' sons are very apt to receive
the impression that young men in
