BOTTOM OF THE MISSISSIPPI IlIV
EK. r.vi'T. EAiw vs. iiiMi'iiui.ys ami aihiott.
In their efforts to prove that the Mississip
pi river, can never be tleepetied Iry I'apt.
End's plan, Messrs. Iluinphreys und Ab
bott, of the C. S. engineer force, declare
that the bottom of the Mississippi river is
composed of blue clay, older than alluvion,
very tenacious and unyielding as marble.
"This fact,'' say Messrs. II. Si A., has
been ddtcrmiucd through very numerous
soundings between Cairn and the Gulf made
with leads adapted to bring up samples
from the bottom of the river."
If the reader will have the patience to
read the following, ho will H"e Messrs. II.
ii nd A's. theory (for it is nothing more)
knocked higher than any kite that ever
sailed in the heavens. Dealing with that
proposition ("apt. Eads nays:
"The fpiestimi of, the existence, of this
unyielding clay is onu of immense practical
importance, not only its tunning the basis
of it proposition to expend forty-six million
dollars, but us a vital (piestinii in the im
provement of the navigation of the river.
In the thousand miles between Cairo and
New Orleans there is not a stretch of river
llt'ly miles long in which I have not stood
upon the bottom beneath the shelter of the
diving-bell, and ex imined the character of
its bed. These examinations embraced
many hundred localities, ami in none tlid I
rind any trueo of thin marble-like clay.
I therefore felt certain, notwithstanding the
positive assurance of these gentlemen to
the contrary, that this clay was a myth. I
examined the report however, to see if ita
existence had been verified by borings "be-
ncatlt tlio uliiftirifr sund-liarn ami mud
banks," but to my HtirpriHn fniiml that nono
liad lii.'t:tt niiulu durin,' the Huncy. I then
carefully read ajain Chapter II., when1, In
the word t the text, "the n-stiltu exhibite.l
in Appendix C are disciisMMl."
'The ..lal.omtediiioni.fthes'i remits,
in that chapter, by which this imaginary
clay is shown to belong to a remote geologic
epoch, tailed to satisfy me, ami I tleterminctl
to undertake the labor of analyzing for my
self the record in Appendix C, to learn the
exact truth. There I found that littwcen
Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Yicksburg, Miss
only eleven lines of soundings had been run
across tho river at different places in this
entire distance of 050 miles. The number
of soundings ou each line averaged alwut
fifty. On four of these lines no samples at
all were obtained; and on the other seven
lines a total of only thirty-tlve samples was
secured I Astonished at this small number,
I turned to the text, and re-read the impres
sive statement, under the imsising head of
Geology of the Channel, that "a knowledge
of the river-bed is of the highest practical
importance, and great
efforts have been made to acquire it.1 Un
consciously I contrasted these few sam
ples with these great efforts, and felt
sure I had got into the wrong
appendix. Indeed, 1 felt morally
certain of it, when I read the corrolxirative
statement on page 14, that "great pains
were accordingly taken to collect speci
men's of the Ix.al wherever soundings were
made." Here were at least ."ioO soundings
and only 3; specimens! When I remem
b:Tcd that congress had been urged by
these gentlemen to spend $40,01)0,000, I Hi
cause "very numerous soundings" with
prepared leads had conclusively proved
that "the led of the Mississippi cannot
yield," I was eovinced that Appendix c
was not the place to lsik for ail of the
facts. I therefore examined all the appen
dices from A to M inclusive, and looked
through the four hundred pages of the
p port, for additional results of soundings
in this CiO miles; but in vain. Pursuing
this interesting investigation, however, I
examined the "uncompromising facts"
presented by this small array of specim ais
supportintr the affirmative side ol this an
cient geologic and marble-like, hard
blue-clay, question, and was ama.ed to
tiinl that Appendix ( actually shows 1 1 tut
tivenly-tive of these samples wept nothin,'
but sand! Three of tin in were s.tna mix 'd
wit ; elav. leaving but st-ven solitary speei
lilells ol elav, taKell ll'oiu the eno ol a
gr. ,as"d sounding lead, lo establish the ge
ology of ilie bed of six hundred and fifty
miles tl the Mississippi! Only seven bils
of clay to suppni t these positive assurances
end grave statements and to stisiaii) a
ri-eomiiiendatioii to exp-inl i bi,oi)0,i;)i), to
build levees eleV'-n feet higher than the
great (loud of 1.S !
These are the facts developed in my re
view, and you have not tin terenierity to
dispute llii ni.
My declaration that the river-bed is
composed of its own deposits, and that the
increas 'd current resulting from the con
linemenl of its flood volume between levees
will ("in-" it to i xcavate a deepi r channel,
and thus prevent any ineivn.tu in tiin high
water mark, i.i met by the l'ni lowing, on
page 1(1 of the report of the Levee t'om-ii;i.-s:oii
: "This reasoning, il tine, would
establish conditions. singularly fortunate tor
tin' levee system ; but unluckily, the wish
has been father to the thought, t'ucolll-ppdiii.-iiig
facts show that the pr. lllises and
cmclusio is al'" both erroneous for the lower

II 'in.g thus squarely cnni'ronkd with ua
eninprosing facts 1 was compelled to go to
thit fact themselves, mid my review shows
the result of my investigation in that di
rection. Aside from tho insignificant number of
specimens of day which constitutes these
uncompromising facts, a moment's rellec
tion must show the absurdity of bat ing the
existence of this marble-like clay upon
such testimony as a greased lead could
bring up from the bottom of the Mississip
pi, even if the samples had been numbered
by thousands. If this supposed clay
yields but slowly lo the strong current it
would certainly not yield samples of ils

.Mr. Oberly didn t propose to draw out the

the previous speakers, he repeated Victor

application that human hcltishn-ss was the
lion that menaced the human race. War

not reason it away, priests could not pray
it out of the heart, but human love and at'-""

Thk Iilst Plan! f lie-most profitable
plan for operating in stocks is thut of unit

whole, which has been done so successfully
by Messrs. Lawrence & Co., bunkers, o7
Exchange Place, New York City. P,y this
co-operative system, each investor is placed
on an equal footing with the largest opera

The Fat .Men's Convention. We can
see some pleasure, if no reason, in the cm:
veiling of a baby show, but we confess wo
could never set- the slightest cause, reason
able or otherwise, for a fat men s conven
tion, unless il be the fact that misery loves
company. For fifty or a hundred men,
whose several weights range from two hun
dred to three hundred pounds, to hold u
convention simply because of so much sur
plus avoirdupois, is absurd, to say the least.
It becomes doubly so when we reflect that
obesity is a disease. What would we think
of as many persons, emaciated by consump
tion, holding a convention to compare their
relative weights. There is but one ground
upon which we would advocate another fat
men's convention, and that is that they will
meet to discuss the merits of Allan's Anti
Fat, the only known remedy for obesity, It
is safe and reliable. Sold by druggists.
