Expeditions Sent to Find Her on Mount Huascaran.

Lima. Nov. 15.—Alarm Is felt here for the safety of Miss Annie S. Peck, of Providence, R. I., the noted mountain climber, who on Friday afternoon signalled her arrival at an altitude of 25.000 feet on Mount Huascaran.

Since that time no word has ben had from Miss Peck or the two Alpine guides who accompanied her.

Miss Peck's feat in reaching an altitude higher than that,attained by any other man or woman in the world was learned here with astonishment and admiration, and her return was eagerly awaited. Her failure to return or to communicate in any way since Friday noon caused grave anxiety, and various expeditions were organized
and have started to her assistance.
