.THE LANDING OF COLUMBUS. The Part of the Now World on Which Ho First Set Foot. Bulletin No. 1, put forth by the bu- •reau of the American republics at Washington as a hand-book of these repub- i lies, has for its frontispiece the picture of a waste of water, rimmed in the distance with a low shore line, and entitled "Watling's Island—the First Land Seen fcy Columbus." There is something attractive ia this terse decision, supported by no further comment, of a question which during some generations has afforded scope for much difference of opinion. What was that island on which Columbus, watch- Inf* about ten o'clock of the night before the ever-memorable October 10, 1492, saw a light rising and falling? Many people will cudgel their memories in •vain to identify Watling's island with this long-sought shore. They will perhaps think of the land which Columbus jpiously called San Salvador as being called Cat island, following their Washington Irving and their Humboldt Or they may have accepted the conclusion reached by P. A. de Varnhagen a quarter of a century ago, that Mayaguana •was the island on which Columbus land•d, and which, as is known, the natives it that time called Guanahani. Then •we find advocates of the claims of Samana and again of Turk's island for this honor. Indeed, the islands that have claimed to be the landfall of Columbus recall by their number the diversity of the views as to the date of his birth, which covers in the controversy a period of ten or fifteen years. But after all, it ia but natural that a group or chain as extensive as the Bahamas or Lucayos, •tretching alo.ng several hundred miles and containing several hundred larger or smaller members, having some close resemblance in size and general appearance, should yield more than one which corresponds to a certain extent with the description in the diary or log book of the great navigator. This is the more Intelligible, since the Spaniards depopulated the islands in order to work the natives in their'mines elsewhere, so that all local tradition of the original landing place died out. Nor did the Spaniards again colonize them, while the English occupation did not follow •until 1629. " More than ninety years ago, however, Munoz suggested that Watling's island, which is about fifty miles east- •outheast of 'Cat island, was the true Guanahani or San Salvador of Colum- "bns. During half a century afterward this new claimant made little headway *gainst the belief that Cat island was better entitled to the honor. but in the last thirty-five years, •with the more precise methods of geographical investigation, the claim of Watling's island has been revived and substantiated in a way to make it irresistible. First A. B. Becher insisted upon this view, and Peschel, Daniel, Major, Petermann and others have followed it. With the competition practically sifted down to Cat, Samana and Watliiig-'s, the last named has now almost eclipsed the other two. On« of the most recent and exhaustive of the recent original investigations of the subject was that of Gov. Blake, while governor of the Bahamas a few years ago. fle made several cruises among the Islands of which he he had official charge for the express purpose of studying 1 this question. With the log-book of Columbus to guide hin, he followed the explorer's course as nearly as possible. A draughtsman .sketched the outlines of the various shores and the governor's wife made water-color drawings of the scenery. He also studied the dangerous currents auainst which the early explorers had also to contend. By a process of elimination one after another of the islands was rejected as failing to satisfy fully the description given by Columbus, while Watling's island "wholly agreed with it. It had the lake In the center, the fertile soil, the,reef encircling" it except at the capacious harbor with its narrow entrance, and "tHe bluff hard by. Such'an independent study, together with the conclusions of the geographers who had not themselves seen it, no doubt entitles Watling's island to be definitely considered as the spot seen when the joyful cry of "Land!" was raised, and, indeed, It has been officially named San Salvador. The present importance of this mat- Tier is increased by the project of Castel- sr and others to make a combined voyage of vessels from the old world to the new in September' and October, 1892, a leading feature of the honors to be paid to Columbus., Naturally there- should "be a common agreement as to the island recognized as the San Salvador of the great discoverer. Researches relating to the place where Columbus landed •will grow in interest and. importance during the next few years. A feature of the coming election might well be that of erecting upon the spot a monument, which, in such an out of the way .place,.need not be pretentious and elaborate, but should be impressive and enduring.—Chicago News. GOETHE'S FAVORITE CAKE. A Bit of Cookery of Which th'o Great Gorman Was Tory Fond. Goethe's fondness for good things to eat is a cherished tradition among all his Boswellian admirers on the continent, and it has already long .been known through his letters that he rarely had a friend at his table without first telling' his mother, by letter or word of mouth, just the sort of menu he wished for the occasion. The exact composition of his favorite dishes has remained something of a mystery even to the Goethe society, however. A bit of yellowed paper taken to Vienna years ago by Ottilie von Goethe, given by her to Frau Auguste von Littrow-Bischoff, and found after the recent death of the latter among.her most valuable documents, goes far toward clearing away much uncertainty from this point. This paper bears a recipe for "Fraufurter Brende," a cake of which Goethe was passionately fond, which he mentioned in letters to his friends, of which he stowed away amazing quantities at every opportunity. The recipe says: "Mix a pound of powdered almonds with a pound of powdered sugar, sprinkle with rosewater, and stir till brown and dry over a light fire. Pour into a dish coated with sugar and cover with cloth. Cool over night and the next day mix with whites of eggs and four ounces of fine flour. Roll out the mass to half the thickness of the back of a knife and cut out with a wooden form. Twenty-four hours later bake in tins moistened with hot wax." Of this "Frankfurter Brende" Franz Grillparzer, the king of Austrian dramatists wrote in 1SOO to Frau von Bischoff: "The Frankfort cake you sent me afforded me the first opportunity of my life to measure myself with Goethe (although only in biting), and has given me new proof of the fact that Goethe, even in his ripest age, was an entirely different sort of a fellow from me. At all events he had better teeth." In his younger years, however, when his teeth were at their best, Grillparzer thought better of Goethe's cake, for, after tasting it once he commented: "Yes, Goethe may occasionally have written bad things, but never ate bad things."—N. Y. Sun. Sprlnsr Woolens. Changeable mohairs,soft,light-weight camel's hair, even-checked cheviots, large plaids and narrow stripes are all found among the new importations of spring woolens.

Light tans and grays are everywhere shown to the shopper, and these are repeated with interweavings of all colors in dots, dashes, zig-zag lines and lozenge and polka spots. In cotton goods and challies many black grounds with bright-colored flowers are shown. And pretty robes of batiste are found in black, ecru and white with bunches of flowers embroidered all over them and a deep border of elaborate work.— N. Y. Ledger. Drawing the Line.

Immediately a lively com- .petition' • ensued , among British iron i manufacturers as to -the thinness to ''•which cold iron could be rolled Mr. Gillett rolled sheets the average thick- ness of which was the eightcen-hun- ~ •dredthpart of an inch. In other words, 1,\ 800 sheets of this iron piled one upon the •other would measure one inch in thick' iiess. The wonderful fineness of this work "-may be more readily understood •when the reader is informed, that 1;200 ^•sheets of the thinnest tissue paper meas- ^•ures a fraction over an inch.

Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is always the prompt remedy. The mischievous properties of brackish water, the evil influence of miasma, unwholesome or unaccustomed food, excessive fatigue, whether bodily or mental, the dyspeptic tendency bred by sedantary pursuits, the pernicious effects of exposure to extremes of temperature or dampness, all these are effectually counteracted by this genial preservative of health.
