    MONTENEGRO, though one of the smallest, is certainly one of the least known countries in Europe. Dr. K. Hassert, who has already made important journeys in the less known parts of the Balkan peninsula, is this summer travelling through Montenegro, and describes the scenery as in many places of very great beauty. The frontier river Cijevna flows through a steep-sided gorge, the height of the precipices bordering which he estimates as over 3000 feet, while in its appearance it rivals the cañons of the Colorado. The traveller in this part of the country runs considerable risks from the predatory Albanian tribes.
