' 1 ''Diana of the Epheaians,"
Mr. J. T. Wood writes from Asia
Minor to the London Athenaeum that
the excavations at Epbeaui are aban
doned for the prenont. The Tomplo
of Diana, the platform upon which it
is raited, and the ground about for
thirty feet, have been explored. Mr.
Wood writes :
On my return from England last
Ootober to direct this work, I contin
ued to dear out the snnd and debris
from such portions of the site of the
Temple of Diana as bad not boon al
ready explored, as well as a consider
able area in every direction .beyond
the lowoHt step of tbe Temple, Pliny's
"univertum Templum." Fearing that
tbe rainy soason would set in earlier
than usual, and tbat tbe wator rising
in tbe excavations would prevent tbe
exploration of the site to tbe required
depth, I en Haired 300 workmen, who,
uador tbe Sergeant and Corporal of
tbe iioyal i-.ngineers aiiottea me by
Government, as well as a Greek gauger
and throe Turkish canvassers, rapidly
cleared tho ground to bo explored.
Happily my fears were not rcalizod,
and instead of an unusually early wet
season it was exceptionally dry, and
I was therefore, alio to explore the
whole site two feet lower than in
More than one bundred feet of tho

of the beautiful sculpture which bad
so materially addod to the magnifi
cence of tbe struoture which it adorned.
Tbe great altar, nineteen feet, six
inches oquaro, discovered last season,
has now been fuliy laid bare. There
is a drain in the foundation of it,which,
I suppose, scrvod to carry away the
water used in washing tbo surface
Tbe position of this altar gives the
approximate position of tbo statue of
the goddoss, as well as that of tbe
eolumns which decorated the interior
of the cells in two tiers. Tbo dry soa
son enabled me thoroughly to explore
the whole of the cells. In so doing, I
discovered remains of three distinct
temples the last but two, tbe last
but one, and the last. The former
must have been that built 600 D. C,
for which the solid foundations do
scribod by Pliny and Yitruvius were
laid. A portion of the west and south
walls of tbe colls of this tomplo, with
some of tbo pavement, was found re
maining in position, as well as a groat
quantity ot tho pavoment, undor tbo
persityfe of tbe last temple. This
pavoment consists of two layers, one
of white marble, the olhor of li mo
ot one, and is tbo same as that which
was found the last day ot the year
1869, making the site of the Temple.
Between five and six foot below the
pavement, and undor tho foundations
of the walls of the cells, I found tho
layer of charcoal, four inches thick,

oecos of wool on which the Tomple
was said to bave boon built? The
lower stones of tbe aolm of this earlv
Temple wore also found in position, as
well as those of the bases of one or
two columns. Bolweontheantso wero
found five of the morlioea which were
out' in the pavement to receive tho
standards of an iron grillo, whlclrnop
aratod tbe pronaos from the porihtvlo.
We found remains of the pavement of
tbe last Tomple but one, tho one com
menced in tbe early part of the Fourth
Century B. C, and bornt by llcros
tralus In tbe year 350 B. C. This
pavement had beon highly polished
and was raised nearly four foot highor
than that Of the proceeding Temple
In conjunction with it wore found two
of tbe stones immediately oonnooled
with the door, in one of which wai
out the morlicc-holo to rocoivo tbe
door post, and the groove upon which
the door was movod; in tbe othor
stone was cut the wide and deep groovo
for tho outer whoel. Theso blocks
bad been raised upon a strong founda
tion of limestone. Tbe door-way must
have been nearly fifteon foot wide.
Tbo pavement of tbe last Tomplo was
raised higher, that of Its poriatylo bo
ing as rauoh as sovon foot six inches
above the pavement of the cellar of
the last but two.'
On removing the ground beyond
tbe Temple platform, a portico was
discovered at a distance of thirty foot
beyond the lowest itep, which appar

An Ingonious Minnesota youth is to
