De aardbeving van San Francisco.

Door Prof. Dr. Hugo de Vries.

Als men met een ferryboot van Berkeley naar San Francisco gaat, heeft men een overzicht over de geweldige ru"inen der hoofdstad. De aardbeving heeft rechtstreeks niet zulk een groote schade veroorzaakt, maar zij deed den brand ontstaan die nagenoeg de geheele stad in de asch gelegd heeft. Zij brak de pijpen der waterleiding en maakte daardoor het blusschen onmogelijk. Vóór zich ziet men het waterfront der stad en het lage gedeelte, daarachter stijgt de stad tegen de ...

The Tree-Dwellers –by: Katharine Elizabeth Dopp

Katharine E. Dopp was well-known as a teacher and writer of children’s textbooks at the turn of the 20th Century. She was among the first educators to encourage the incorporation of physical and practical activity into the elementary school curriculum at a time when such activities were becoming less commonplace in a child’s home environment. The Tree-Dwellers – The Age of Fear is the first in a series of elementary school texts written by Ms. Dopp that focus on the anthropological development of early human groups. Each lesson begins by posing a few questions for the child ...

Le Pays des Fourrures –by: Jules Verne

En 1959, des officiers de la Compagnie de la Baie d’Hudson sont chargés d’aller fonder un fort au nord du 70e parallèle, au-delà du cercle polaire.
Le fort est établi sur le Cap Bathurst, qui semble être le lieu parfait.

Malheureusement, ce cap n’est pas fait de terre, mais de glace, et lors d’une éruption volcanique, le cap se détache du continent et part à la dérive, emportant tous ses occupants avec lui.
