I FOREST DANGERS. j It is reported from British Guiana that the Bishop of Guiana (Dr Parry) had started to walk through a dense forest, and been lost therein, owing to the path having become obliterated by the growth of heavy bush. Happily the guides succeeded the next day in discovering a way out. By a coincidence, there appeared just about the same time a new book by M. Eugene Andre, in which he describes a similar adventure, also in the Guianas, which had a disastrous result. M. Andre, who seems to share his Swedish namesake's contempt of danger, describes his journeys through the mysterious South American forests. On one occasion, a boat having been wrecked, he found himself with 8 days' provisions for a month's journey. The party was divided into two sections, one of which elected to travel by water in the remaining boat, while the other, numbering 5 persons, endeavoured to find their way to La Prision through the forest. The party who went by boat lost only one of their number, but those who sought a way through the forest were never heard of again.
