EXPEDITION TO MOUNT KENIA. We learn from the Times that Mr. H. J. Mackinder, reader in geography at the University of Oxford, has just left England in charge of an expedition, the object of which is to make a thorough study of Mount Kenia, in British East Africa. The expedi- tion is partly subsidised by the Royal Geographical Society, though a very considerable portion of the funds is contributed by Mr. Hausburg, one of the members of the expedition. Mr. Mackinder is also accompanied by two competent Swiss guides and two taxidermists and collectors. The expedition is well equipped with instruments, cameras, and other means of carrying on scientific work. Mr. Mackinder and his party propose to camp at a height of abouf 16,000ft., and from this as a base they hope to make a good map of the whole moun- tain, ascend to its summit, and make ample collec- tions of animals and plants.
