Boiling springs spout forth among the ti-tree scrub--springs alkaline; springs silicic; springs charged with sulphur; springs green, and blue, and yellow. If he pokes the ferule of his umbrella into the ground, a jet of steam springs forth. On the spot where he stands to-day in perfect safety, there may burst forth to-morrow a fountain of boiling mud. Beneath his feet, ...
