flcrculnnoum, In Italy, la ono of those
ancient cities which have not only been
burled, but actually rorgotten, ror
ugos. The town, supposed to bo of
Etruscnn origin, lies on tho Campanlan
plain at tho foot of Its destroyer, Ve
suvius, almost midway between Na
ples and Pompeii.
What caused tlio catastrophe of tho
year 70 A. IX? Geologists havo como
to tho help of the archaeologists, and
It Is now hold that the destruction of
Ilerculaneum was somewhat different
from that of Pompeii, although Pom
pell was also covered and burled and
the general effects wero the same In
both Instances. In the case of Pom
pell the city was overwhelmed by tho
Miower of small stones from die vol
cano and the subsequent rain of ashes,
but Ilerculaneum seems to havo been
deluged with "water lava," and far
fewer people were able to make their
escape from the city than from Pom
pell. It Is tho theory that tho steam from
the crater turned into rain, and, mixing
with the volcanic dust, formed a hugo
volume of muddy torrent. This gath
ered other soil as It poured over tho
land, raised the level of the country
moro than sixty-live feet and finally
left a mass of compacted tufa. This
torrent ran on to the sea, making Its
own channel and forming n kind of
lagoon around the previously safe har
bor which entirely prevented any shlp3
from approaching tho place tliereafter.

castle. When the children wero twelve
years of age Akbar ordered them to bo

but tho production of the ore samples
changed wonder Into certainty.
Next day a government metallurgist
estimated the value of the contents of
the two oil tins at about 500, yet the
specimens brought from the island
wero not by any means tho richest
And now there Is not much more to
tell of Ilnlnbow island and its cast
aways. On the day thnt Captain
Robert Anstruther's-name appeared In
the Gazette, reinstating htm to his
rank and regiment, Iris and ho wero
married in tho English church at Hong
kong, for It was his wife's wish that
the place which witnessed his Igno
miny should also witness his triumph.
Soon afterward Hobert resigned his
commission. Ho regretted the neces
sity, but the demands of his new
sphere In life rendered this Btep im
perative. Mining engineers, laborers,
stores, portable houses, engines and
equipment wero obtained with all
haste, and the whole party sailed on
one of Sir Arthur Donne's ships to con-
( voy a small steamer specially hired to
attend to the wants of the miners.
At last, one evening early In July,
the two vessels anchored outside Palm
Tree rock, and Mir Jan could bo seen
running frantically about the shore,
for no valid reason save that ho could
not stand still. The sahib brought him
good news. The governor of Hong
kong felt that any reasonable request
made by Anstruther should bo granted
if possible. He had written such a
strong representation of 'the Moham
medan's ease to the government of In
dia that there was little doubt the re
turning mall would convey an olllclal
notification that Mir Jan had been
granted a free pardon.
The milling experts verified Robert's
most sanguine views after a very brief
examination of the deposit. Hardly
any preliminary work was needed. la
twenty-four hours a small concentrat
ing plant was erected and a ditch
made to drain off the carbonic anhy
dride in tho valley. After dusk a par
ty of coolies cleared the quarry of Its
former occupants. Toward the close
of tho following day, when the great
steamer once more slowly turned her
head to the northwest, Iris could hear
tho steady thud of an engine at work
on the first consignment of ore.
Robert had been busy up to tho last
moment. Thero wns so much to be
done la a short space of tlmo. The
vessel carried a large number of pas
sengers, and he did not wish to de
tain them too long, though they ono
and all expressed their willingness to
suit his convenience in this respect.
Now his share of the necessary prep
arations was concluded. Ills wife, Sir
Arthur and his uncle were gathered la
a corner of the promenade deck when
ho approached and told them that his
last Instruction ashore was for a light
to be fixed on Summit rock ns soon as
the dynamo was in working order.
"When we all come back in the cold
weather," he explained gleefully, "wo
will not imitate the Sirdar by running
on to the reef should wo arrivo by

wero fixed on the fast receding cliffs.
"Sweetheart," said her husband,
"why are you so silent?"
She turned to' him. The light of tho
setting sun Illumined her face with its
"Because I am so happy," she said.
