BROUGHT BACK PYGMY HIPPO Hunter Spent Weary Months In to Prove That the Species Really Existed. s Jun-flie- It seems incredible, but there exist hippopotami that do not , exceed 30 Inches in height. For a long while nobody believed that there were any pygmy hippos In Liberia. The natives Insisted that the Hippopotamus lived deep In the forests; but that was another reason why explorers and hunters shook their heads In incredulity. The hippopotamus lives along the rivers, -t- hey said, and this talk about pygmies of this species In the forests Is nonsense. Nevertheless a pygmy hippo was caught as far back as 1873, "and brought from Africa to the zoological gardens In Dublin. It might have convinced the world, only It arrived In a dying condition, and perished before It could be exhibited. After that, people took to doubting it again, ard considered throne recorded specimen s a,teenk. ut Car Hagenback, famous animal man, made up his mlAd, at last, that the pygmy hippo could be. and should be, introduced to man. He sent an Intrepid hunter, Schom-burgafter It, and Schomburgk, after speeding a year and a half In the jungle, reappeared with three pygmy beasts, two of which were at once brought to the New York zoo and placed on exhibition.

The city is cosmopolitan and has historical, literary and philosophical traditions In keeping with the purSwitzerland pose of the league. has preserved its neutrality In a way to be above suspicion. And finally the Swdss Confederation is in Itself a sort of League of Nations. From the practical viewpoint the city of Geneva Is attractive, not too.large, and centrally located for many of the members of the league, la fact, the enthusiasts say that considering Genera's past, "its long history full of struggles and suffering through which It won its freedom, It weald appear that from all time this city has been predestined to become the capital of the intangible kingdom of all free peoples, lfnlted to defend, not only their rights and liberty, but also the rights and liberty of others. The requirements for a location stipulated fifteen hundred meters along the edge of the lake, embracing large properties; a port for hydroplanes, facing the Alps and having access by land and water. Within the walls of the small territorial district of Geneva, amid the country adorned with parks and decked with gardens, several estates were available to the representatives of the different nations. The parish of Genthod, about four miles out from the town, perhaps the more readily fulfills these conditions. Genthod, one of the oldest villages, was a part of the bishop of Genevas property. In 1535 It became the property of the republic and Is inclosed in the land that the Bernese took from the duke of Savoy. An unusually beautiful spot, looking down upon the lake fiom time Immemoilal, It has been a chosen place for the Genevans. In the tenth century the noblemen replaced the country house of their forefathers by beautiful estates; gardens were laid out and planted. Two of these estates with the houses intact, rendered all the more beautiful by the passing of time, with nvenues and venerable woods, were first chosen. The Creux do Genthod belongs to the family de Saussure and the de Pourtales estate. The estate adjoining was added; It is occupied by a large modern house called the Chateau-RougOn the other side Is the property of Naville, the Egyptologist, temporary president of the International Bed Cross. Spacious grounds that belonged to the estate of the naturalist and philosopher Charles Bonnet, were also secured. Incidentally, one of the eighteenth century houses on the Bonnet property was taken stone by stone to Geneva and scrupuCrowning this long hillock lously reconstructed. with Its gentle slopes Is a plateau Inclined toward the Jura mountains, the crest line which fills the horizon. This presents a magnificent panorama for a distance of over a mile along the lake shore, and a mile and a half Inland, half of the township of Genthod, bounded on the north by the Vorsolx river and on the south by a road and crossed by railroad and the route to the Geneva-Bern- e Lausanne. The most ancient of these estates, nnd the most symmetrical, Is the Creux de Genthod. It was built by Anil Lullln, theologian, professor and collector of rare manuscripts.1 Bloiulel, the great In 1723 he French architect, drew the plans, planned the gardens and park.

De Saussure, filled with a passionate love for the high Alps, the outline of which he gazed at every day, went exploring, climbing Mont Blanc, writing his Voyages dans les Alpes His daughter, who became Madame Necker de Saussure, grew up In this delightful atmosphere. Charles Bonnet continued to carry out his study of nature, and when he lost his sight gave up his time to philosophical problems, strengthening his scholars belief In an after life. Haller used to come from Bernfe to work with him. Lenrnea men and scholars came from all parts of Europe to visit them. In this way the small circle of Genthod, passionately interested tn scientific culture and Christian philosophy, became a European center In direct opposition to the one at Ferney, where Voltaire derided the austereness of Geneva and tried his best to destroy It. After the death of Charles Bonnet his property returned to the de Rive family, which was connected with Madatne de Stael (1776-1817Her house is near Genthod, and Corrinne came often on fine summer days to sit on the terrace of the philosopher and w riter. The de Pourtales house was built about 1750 by Jean Louis Saladin, a diplomat of Geneva attached to the court of Louis XV, who as a mark of appreh ciation gave him his portrait In oils. The de Snlndin house Is on a height and commands a vide view of the lake. It is to be seen In the center of two broad avenues with tts simple gray front, Its semicircular outbuildings, nil magnificently located. Beyond the fields that slope gently are the trees of the Creux de Genthod, the rare species that Amt Lullin had collected at a great cost, chestnuts that were brought from Lyons In carts, Immense vistas of foliage, wonderful tree architecture Infolding the old French garden. Along the walks wheie the two scholars meditated. around that hpuse of pure lines, the meeting place of so many distinguished men, a breath of European thought seems to float In this Genevan atmosphere, say the enthusiasts. An intimate communion seems to unite all these grand and simple homes to the grand old trees, the gentle distant slopes behind which nppenr the Alps, the long, clear stretch of hike. To all this vista, at the same time so big nnd so complete that It would seem impossible to destroy this Incomparable harmony certainly these homes nnd historical grounds will remain at they are and the new buddings will bo erected Inland on the plateau. Geneva Is nn old, old city. Its origin js lost In antiquity, but It was of sufficient Importance in Caesar's time to be mentioned In his It was early the sent of a bishopric. It was one of the tnpitnls of the Burgundians. In the sixth century It passed to the Franks. In the eleventh century It became Incorporated with the German euipiie. About that time the temporal was added to the spiritual power of the bishops. The dukes of Savoy began to encroach on the tompoin! power nnd at the same time the burghers took n lemd In affairs.

It contains possibly 60,006 'people a little over 100,000 with Its suburbs and the canton lias a population of about 135,000. , There are 22 cantons, with a total population of about 3,350,000. The Romans made themselves masters of the country in the first century, B. C. Their dominion lasted about four centuries. A succession of masters followed. When It became a part of the German (Holy Roman) empire in the eleventh century It was a hodge-podg- e of petty states lulled by dukes, counts, bishops and abbots, together with little The beginning of the confederation of ' cantons was In the thirteenth century. In 1276 Rudolph of Hapsburg, Holy Roman emperor, secured control of the duchy of Austria and threatened the liberties of the Swiss. To resist its nggressions the three forest cantons of UrI, Schwyz and Untenvalden In 1291 entered Into a league. In the fourteenth century five other cantons joined. The house of Hapsburg found the mountaineers invincible. At the close of the middle ages the connection of Switzerland with the German empire came virtually to an end. The confederation was enlarged by fresh accessions. In the sixteenth century, as stated, Geneva shook off the authority of the dukes of Savoy and of the bishops. After the reformation in the peace of Westphalia (1648) Switzerland was formally declared independent of the German empire. In 179S the French occupied the country and established the Helvetic republic. Iu 1803 Napoleon res stored the cantonal confederation and new were added. The congress of Vienna in 1815 decreed the perpetual neutrality of Switzerland. Genev a, of course, at once suggests noted men and famous events John Calvin, Rousseau nnd others ; the Geneva convention, the Alabama claims, etc. Modern Geneva is an exceedingly attractive city. It is beautifully situated at the southwest end of Lake Geneva, which here narrows and pours out into the Rhone, which is shortly joined by the Arve. The Rhone is crossed by nine fine lnidges which join the old town on the left banl?, with the principal i'esidence quarter of the foreign colony on the light hank. There arfe ninny fine structures of interest. The College de St. Antoine, founded by Calvin, has nearly 2,000 students, over half of whom are foreigners. Geneva Is noted os an educational center. The Cathedral of St. Peter is Byzantine in character nnd is snid to have been built in 1124. The botanical gardens are Intel eating. 1here are several museums, Including the Musee Itatln ; the Fol museum, with collections of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquilles;1 Hu Athcneum, devoted to the fine arts, and the of Natural History, containing de Saussures geological collection.
