The “Tower of Taranaki.”

The “Tower of Taranaki.”

Japanese visitors have gone specially to Taranaki to gaze in wonderment at the noble cone of Egmont, a rival of their own venerated Fujiyama. This peak, standing in princely solitude far away from other mountains, wears an evergreen mantle of native forest below its crystal crown, which is raised 8260ft. above the sea. This extinct volcano is a monument of peace on the place where the fire-demons had their battles long ages ago.
