I VANISHING HELIGOLAND. As it was reported from Heligoland that con- siderable masses of land had fallen into the sea during the winter storms the Kaiser visited the island a few weeks ago to see for himself what effect this was likely to have on the fortifications. His Majesty evidently regarded the situation as serious, for shortly afterwards a number of Government officials crossed over to make a thorough investigation. It now transpires that these gentlemen have given up the island for lost. It is particularly the western side of the island where the famous grottos are situated that is being rapidly disintegrated. Eight hundred years ago the island was five times its present size, and as the crumbling away of the rock is due solely to geological causes, it is admitted that human skill and power can do nothing to avert its complete disappearance. The rock of which the island is composed contains a large percentage of salt which nothing can protect from dissolution by the North Sea. Germans are now more than ever confirmed in their opinion that Bismarck made an extremely bad bargain when he made an exchange with Eng- land taking over Heligoland.
