HEIGHT OF FAMOUS MOUNTAINS. The height of few mountains has been ascertained with surveying instruments Those which any one actually ascends are usually measured by the barometer, which is not infallible, and which at different times may give dissimilar results. The elevation of other mountains, which no explorer has yet climbed, is estimated by persons wbo scrutinized them from adjacent peaks. Here, again, equally good authorities dis agree. Besides, in some instances-Ararat and Sinai, for instance-modern geographers cannot with certainty identify mountains of great historic interest. In a tabie like the ollowing. therefore, it is impossible to do more than closely approximate the real acts. But Longmans, Green & Co.'s Gazetteer, which has been used in the main, is robably as safe a standard as can be found, although at the time when the last edition ! ame out (1895) Fitzgerald had not ascended Aconcagua, the Duke of the Abruzzl had lot visited Mount St. Elias, and Mount McKinley, now believed to be the loftiest peak

North America, had not even been discovered:
