But the greatest treasure in history is that which a city syndicate is now seeking in the volcano lake of Guatavifca. Colombia. This Sacred Lake of the Chibiohas was the home .of the Ohibichas' deity, the Sacred Man, and into it, with the purpose of propitiating the ■deity, thousands G f pilgrims cast every imaginable kind of I treasure. The facts are authentic, and any day the city syndicate may light upon a little matter of £IOO,000,000. The Romans, after the manner of the Ohibichas, cast their valuables to the God which they believed to exist beneath the Tiber’s waters, and these the river cherishes. —Archibald Haddon, in the Express.
