NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE IMPORTANT ANNOUNCElENT! THE INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHY. The last few years have proved so rich in geographical discov eries that there has been a pressing need for a resume of recent ex plorations and changes which should present in convenient and accurate form the latest results of geographical work. The addi tions to our knowledge have not been limited to Africa, Asia, and the Arctic regions, but even on our own continent the gold of the Klondike has led to a better knowledge of the region, while within a short time we shall have much more exact geographical informa tion concerning the numerous islands which make up the Philippines. The want which is indicated will be met by The InteraonionalGeog raphy, a convenient volume for the intelligent general reader, and the library which presents expert summaries of the results of geo graphical science throughout the world at the present time.
