H^y mutilated book. One of the great
Blfecrs in^ the record in the Atlantic
Ind gulf coastal plain regions of this
country is the absence of the later part
of the cretaceous and the early part
of the eocene chapters?perhaps eight
to ten millions years ago. A report
by the geological survey discusses this
missing part of the record and shows
that the break must cover a very long
period of time.
It is known that at that time the
continents were at least as large as
and probably larger than they are now,
and the oceans were accordingly smaller.
Any rocks that were then formed
in the sea seem to have been weather
ed and washed away. Hundreds of
( kinds of plants and animals that lived
before and hundreds that lived after
this great period are known, but not
one which lived during the period.
Strange to say, few if any of tbe species
which existed before the ui^nown
period lived through it j
It is like a play in which the places
of one act remain the same as in the
preceding but the characters are all j
new, and yet many of the new players
resemble the old ones so much that

close relatives. In each of the states
bordering the Atlantic ocean are layers
of rock which were formed before
and after the period whose record j
is missing. In these layers are entombed
sea shells of many kinds, but apparently
not one species liyed through
from cretaceous to eocene time.

A FAMOUS BATTLE.
The One Described In History as tha
"Victory of Victories."
The battle which is known in hisl
tory as the "Victory of Victories" tool;
place at Nehavend. in Ecbatana, and
1 was fought between thertfiew Moslem
. power in G37 and the empire of Persia,
then one of the most powerful of the
! eastern monarchies. It was one of the
I most absolutely decisive battles in the
j history of war, and it was an tne more
| amazing by reason of the fact that it
was won by a people who twenty years
before had been unknown barbarians,
lost in the deserts of Arabia.
Arabian historians place the Persian
loss in a single day at 100,000 men
killed This may be and probably is
an exaggeration, but the fact remains
that the Persian dynasty came to an
end when the battle was over and that
Zoroastriaiiism, which had been the religion
of Persia for over a thousand
years, was at once supplanted by Is|
lam. Its modern representatives, as is

The victory was so absolutely decisive
that it extended the Arabian dominions
over the whole of the region
lying between the Caspian sea and the
Indian ocean. With the exception perhaps
of the battle of Tours, no single
fight ever made such a difference in
I the after history of the world.?Ex|
AN ARMY AND A MOB.
It'e Discipline That Marks the Difrererence
An army Is not an army, but a mob,
j unless every item in it can be trusted
! to do the same thing at the same mo!
ment at the word of command. So
obedience Is not a virtue in a soldier,
| but a necessity, for, unless he learns
j it, he cannot attain to the military virj
tues. It has been proved, for instance,
*? ' * ? + ! **** 1CJ f VlQ
I MUU uiat uucuicuv-t ao uuV
I way to courage.
| When it is a habit with men they
face danger as they form fours because
they are told to, and the habit
of obedience is stronger in them than
their natural fears. It is, in fact part
of a soldier's technique, and unless he
uas learned it he is an amateur liable
to stage fright.
There may, of course, be an irrational
discipline which destroys a soldier's
intelligence, as irrational technique destroys
intelligence in any craft But

A Giant Among Dwarfs.
The intellect and genius of Franklin
were perhaps never more manifest
than when, as the colonial agent of
Pennsylvania, he appeared before the
British house of commons in order to
undergo an inquisition" into the taxation
questions which were brewing the
trouble which subsequently resulted in
American freedom. *Not fewer than
300 questions were propounded to him
by some of the acutest legal and political
minds of the old country. To
each and every one of them he replied
Ill a mtisieuui uiauuci> juiuxuuuu
Burke in commenting on the matter
said that Franklin reminded him of "a
man being examined by a parcel of
schoolboys." while Charles James Fox
remarked that his inquisitors were
"dwarfs in the hand of a giant"

"assize of bread'' was set every week

being left to the baker and miller. Departure
from the official price was
heavily punished.?London Mirror.
