FREDA'S,'MAY 17, 15)18. ·JL-HJB COURIER. CONNELLSVLLLE, PA. PAGE ELEVEN.- Tablet Erected to Alexander Selkirk's Memory on Juan Fernandez. T here har« been recent references to the Island of Joan Fernandez In the sonth Pacific ocean, 5SO miles off the coast Of Sonth America. Juan Fernandez lies under about the thirty-seventh parallel of sonth latitude and is a little south of west from Valparaiso, Chile, from which it Is distant abort 600 miles. Close upon tie Island of. Jnan Fernandez Is the much smaller island of Santa Clara, and .somethins more than 100 miles farth'er but to sea, west by a trifle sooth, is a lone Island of-the name of Mnsafuc^a.. There are no. Islands between Juan "Fernandez and the mainland. And it lies in a particularly lonesome part of the vast ocean. The eightieth parallel at longitude passes nearly a hundred mllea j west of Jnan Fernandez, and that parallel passes between two small tslands,- St Felix end St Ambrose, nearly 1,000 miles Dortli of Jnan Fernandez, Santm Clara and Masafaer*. Ifot only hare there been recent references to Joan Fernandez island, bnt fireqncnt references to It may. b« read in the pnblic prints, and nearly always is It referred to as Robinson Crusoe's island. Set the reference is laoart and many thousands of miles oat of the way. However, It is probable that | the geographical or Ut«rary error has j b«n, given too ranch headway ever to ' b* overtaken and corrected, and no doabt It will be perpetuated. Not Crusoe's Island. There arc few places In the world ·which have giTen so much Interest and entertainment to beys as the ionc- ly island on which Robinson Crnsoe and his man Friday had their adventures. There Is n» telling just where Defoe thonent Robinson Crusoe's Island was, but It most certainly was not In that part of th« world where the Island of Jn»n Fernandez lies. If WE GIVE "S.

Bnt Defoe never got i nis hero, Robinson Crusoe, round the Horn or Into the Pacific at a l l ; he ! started him from England, shipwrr-ck- ed him In Africa, sent him as a planter to the Brazils'--as he always pi urn- Hzes the name--and finally blew him north, shipwrecked ni;aln on an Island which Defoe carefully labeled on the title pagre of the flrst edition as being! S 'at the mouth of ttie ralphty Orinoco,' a continent and parts of ttvo oceana j removed .from Juan Fernandez." The Island of Tuhngo In the Carlb-:fr bean archipelago was mentioned by j one writer as the island ot Crusoe, but | Tabago, north of the Trinidad.

I*uls Hhead, in a preface to one edition of Hubln- son Cmsofr, wrote: "A map has been prepared to show the real location, which Is at the mouth of the Orlno.ro, thirty miles northwest of Trinidad, an ; j Island lyinff jnst in the C a r i b b e a n j archipelago. The island la now known *g TabOfro." A jrood many distinguished writers i g bare mistaken the Island at Juan Fcr-! : noad« for the Island of Koblnson Cm- i · soe, and among them was K. H. Hnna. · * Jr., who. In his "Two Years Before the i : Mast," wrote that he saw the Island j| of Joan Fernandez t l rlslng nke a deep! blue cloud ont of the sea" when his ( brie, the Pllirrfra. was seventy miles · away.
