Jia come all the way from Geneva to

of a deep lustrous green, descending

' .Such a crevasse as this, the guide said,
was always to bo found in tho glacier
and only the most ordinary care was
.necessary to avoid it
We scrambled down upon the ico
.-and began to aaako our way across it.
'Owing to various obstructions, such as
lieapcd-up snow or soft spots in the ice,
onr progress was very slow. After an
Jbour of shard work we had not accom
plished one-half of the distance. I sat
iown upon a cube of rock to rest and
Jook about mo.
A change had already taken place in
the weather. The sun was obscurod
ljyadense, leaden-colored Mist, and
the valley of the glacier itself seemed
to be choked with Masses of whirling
-vapor. My outside garments were wet,
and all around us the ice sent up a
-cold aud benumbing steam.
As I sat in a far from comfortable
:f rame of body and mind I was startled

that 1 was absolutely stunned, and
right in front of us a long, jsgged line
appeared in the ice, widening rapidly,
until two sheer walls faced each other
more than ten feet apart
Though the chasm laj' directly in our
way, to cross it was out of the question.
The guide turned quickly to the right,
and we followed the brink of the crev
asse, hoping to find a point where it
ended or wai narrow enough to spring
over. The fog had now become so
dense that we could not see a dozen
gteps before us, and we were forced to
move at a snail's pace in order to
avoid falling into some unseen abys.?.
We had gone on in this way perhaps
five minutes, when there came another
report, followed by a series of weaker
shocks. The guide and I paused and
looked around us.
The situation had become, to say the
least, embarrassing. During a mo
mentary lift of the fog, we saw all
around us a perfect network of cracks,
intersecting ont another at every
angle. Then, as the vapor closed in
again, we could hear on every side tre
mendous crashes and grinding., as the
huge musses of ice approached or re
ceded from each other.
What to do now was a serious ques
tion. To proceed a single vard might
be to precipitate ourselves to the bot
tom of some frightful chasm, and to re
main where we were might be merely
waiting until the ice should open be
neath our feet and engulf us. Hut we
were speedily forced to a conclusion.
While we stood a few feet apart anx
iously discussing our position, there
was another shock, and I was blinded
by a shower of small particles of ice.
When I cleared my eyes I saw that
another cleft had opened directly at
my feet, between myself and the
guide. It was rapidly widening, and
in a few seconds would completely
separate me from my companion.
Without hesitation I sprang across it
and stood beside him. Ho looked at
me with a grave face.
" We are in great danger," he said,
" Yes," I replied, as quietly as I
could, "but we must do our best to
get out of it. What do you advise?"
" We must not stop here," he said,
peering into the fog; "wo are evident- i
ly in the very center of these crevasses.
If we could get nearer to either bank
we should be safer. I think we had
better follow one of these cracks until
we can cross it. We shall have to feel
our way, for this fog hides everv
thing." "Very good," I replied; "lead on
and I will keep close behind 3011."
Crouching almost to our hands and
knees we proceeded slowly onward,
keeping the main crevasse, a cleft
some twenty feet wide, on our left.
For nearly an hour wo went on in this
waj and still the awful chasm yawned
beside us. Indeed, it seemed to ine
that we had not moved at all. and
that I recognized certain peculiarities
in our surroundings as similar to those

It may not be generally known, say.
h the Tangier correspondent, that into
these prison criminals ami Mtspcot
and debtors -vu alike thrown, without
trial, ami with-no idea as to how long
they may havtr t lie there. In fact,
these dungeons are used as a means of
extortion, and largely so by natives
who have obtained tha "protection" of
one of the foreign embassies, and who
then abuse the power of the " protect
or" to make raids- upon the properly
ami persons of. the victims of their re-
venge or cupidity. A the Government !
does not feed the prisoners or only to
a nominal extent and as it pays none
of its officials, except thoc of the. cus-
torn house, and1 lm an unpaid army,
some idea may be formed of the extor- f
tion and suffering daily enacted iu this
unhappy country. The condition of
the Tangier prison, L'tnugh far bolter
than those of the. interior, is simply a
disgrace to civilization and to our com
