Land Might Have Existed.
Stella's Playground Association Got Big Lift from This Stunt
Washington, June 24. Concerning
the fact that the great continent of
Atlantis may once have existed, Mon
sieur Pierre Termier of the French
Academy of Sciences remarks in a
recently published separate of the
Smithsonian annual report:
"No affirmation is yet permissible
but it seems more and more evident
that' a vast region, continental or
made of great islands, has collapsed
vest o the Pillars of Hercules, other
wise call the Strait of Gibraltar, and
that its collapse occurred in the not
far distant past. In any event, the
question of Atlantis is placed anew
before men qt science.
To many minds Atlantis has been
a fabled country, a part of the inter
esting mythology of the eastern
world, an inexhaustible subject for
poets from the days of r lato on, but
now M. Termier says:
"It may be,, indeed, that the poets
were once more-right. After a long
period ot disdaintul inditterence, ob
