LAND MADE BY AN EARTHQUAKE.

LAND MADE BY AN EARTHQUAKE.

Volcanic action in the Aleutian group of islands in the Behring sea has recently increased considerably and about forty volcanoes are in a state of active eruption. Columns of fire are visible every night at a great distance, and the topography of the islands has also considerably changed. To the east of the Bogolow, a broad strip of land has been raised from the sea, so that the island is now more than twelve times its former size. The phenomenon has occurred within a comparatively short time, since only a few days before its being seen,several sealing vessels have passed the spot which to-day is high and dry ground.
