However, Spring Sewing Time I near, and as inquiries for these celebrated machines ot ours are more numerons than they have been in a long time, we have come to the conclusion that the people ought to know something about them. Our Sewing Machines i... .. Are not of the regular Department Store pattern. We challenge the trade to produce a better raachi ne,viewed ..from any standpoint you will, than we offer. Its cabi net work speaks for itself at a glsuce, but what is of more importance is The Machine Itself It is made by the largest and best known firm in the world, and is a duplicate of their best machine in everything except the name. Because it lacks this you get it here for about forty per cent, of what it will cost if you insist on having the name otherwise there is no differeuco.

Falcon Inland, which early hist year was reported to have completely tlls appp.ared hoenath the waves of tho Pacific, Is arjaln showing Its tlat sur face above the water. Tnc life history of this spec!: of liiml has been unusual and Interesting. A cable dispatch from Kuropci printed In April last year said that after a brief life of fourteen yeats Falcon Island had ceased to exist. It was thought that no trace of It would ever be seen again. Hut Mr. Vosslon. tho consul general of Trance In the Tonga group, announces that Com mandant navcuhlll, of the cruiser Por poise has returned to those Islands from a cruise In the Pacific with the news of the rc-emrrgence of Falcon Island. lie; says that tho highest part of the Island Is now about sixteen ieet above sea level. The Island was formed by a great volcanic eruption at the bottom of the soa In 1SS5. It took the waves and storms of tho ocean fourteen yeats en tirely to obliterate It. Mr. J. J. Lister, who visited tho island a short time be fore It disappeared, said that It was rapidly being torn to pieces by the action of thej waves. Unless a freih volcanic outburst occurred ho thought tt would soon disappear. His predic tion came true and a steamer that vis ited tho place about tho beginning of last year reported that not a trace of it was lo be found above the water level. The island was built up In the neigh borhood ot the Tonga group about thirty-live miles from tho Island of To fooa, A sttbmailne volcano had reared from the bottom of the ocean a mighty mass of ejecta and on this foundation rested the outpourings which rose abovo thn water. The Island consisted of two distinct parts. One of them was a hill of gentle slopo and wide babe, whoso height was lT-Ms feet. On one side the hill ended abruptly In a tliff, whose base was washed by the seat at high water. Tho other part of the Island was a flat, extendi!) Sven Hedln found them to be fresh. From thin lie concuded that the lake could not have been long In exist ence. Thu Impossibility of teconclllng tho observations of his predecessois with whnt he had himself seen also aug geteel that Lob Nor was not a perma nent pheet of water, like the Dead Sea or Lake Ualkhash, but was constantly shifting its position, the lake bed nt one time being filled up with desert sand, nnd forming again In new places. Tho correctness of Ills original Infer ence has now been placed beyond doubt. The lake known to earlier observers ha.s now disappeared, und Its dry bed Is strewn with shells nnd other organ isms which had lived In Its waters. Hut a. system of new lakes has been formed around tho old basin, which Dr. Sven Hedln has explored and map ped. The Tarlm basin Is a barren and dry land, a region of traveling waves of desert sand. All this ttact has been drying up. probably continuously, even In historic times. The same thing Is true of western as well as eastern Turkestan. Lake Ualkhash Is disap pearing with compatatlve lapldltj-. Ac cording to the Uus.sl.in geographers. Its area has been greatly diminished during the present century, and those who dwell by Its shores assert that Its level Is lowered at the rate of a foot In every live years. Hut the same thing Is true of the Syr Darla and the Amu Darla and the Aral Sea, Into which their waters arc emptied. Ill fact, the whole drainage basin of this sea and of the Caspian Is under going desiccation, slow but sure. These two seas, with many minor salt lakes, are but polos left In the deeper hol lows of a great ocean by which the Mediterranean was extended into the ' heart of Asia. There arc banks of dead senshells where once tho waves weie breaking: thete are dry steppes whero onco the herbage was green and forests tlmulshcd. The fact Is cer tain, but the causes not easy to ells cover. The climate must be changing, not in this or that locality, but over a broad and extensive zone, which runs with little interruption from northern Africa to tho eastern cntl of the desert of Gobi. A slmll.11- change has oc curred In the new world. The Great Salt Lake of Utah Is but a remnant of a vastly greater sheet of fresh water which onco set a river to tho Pacific.
