Professor Davis Returns from Asia.
Professor W. M. Davis has returned from his journey to Turkestan, as a member of the Carnegie Institute Expedition for archaeological and geographic study, which was led by Professor Raphael Pumpelly of Newport. The chief subjects of his geographic investigations were the elevated shore lines of the Caspian Sea, the extensive river-plains of central Turkestan, and the terraces and glacial deposits among the western ranges of the Tian Shan mountain system. The furthest point reached by Professor Davis was Lake Issikkul in North-Eastern Turkestan, whence he returned through Western Siberia and St. Petersburg. Mr. Ellsworth Huntington, for-two years a graduate student, accompanied Professor Davis as Carnegie Research Assistant and remains in Asia to continue the studies begun last summer.
