The Life of Niagara,
About the wearing away of Niagara
falls. Prof. Le Conie says: The upper
(tratum of rock is Niagara limestone,
b hard rock, but beneath it is a stratum
( f shale. It is the slow undermining
t f this shale that causes the limestone
to break off from year to year and the
falls to recede. They are receding
tiow at the rate of three or four feet a
t ear. What will be the final result?
'hey may go back to the lake, but the
limestone is growing thicker and
thicker and may finally extend to the
bottom of the falls, la that case the
lock would not break off, but would
wear away and form a rapids. In any
case, if the falls should recede to Lake
lirie at the present rate, it would take
t least 20.000 years.

THAT LEVEE AGAIN.
The Drury Tight Road Revived In Connec
tion With It.
The MuBCatine Journal takes occasion
to boom the toll road project In Drury
township as follows:
Our neighbors across the river are
awakening to the fact that the rich Illinois
bottom lands will furnish teeming fields
if protected from overflows during the
June rise in the Mississippi and have
taken preliminary steps toward building
a levee. The land owners in the bottom
east of the Fourth slough have organized
a district and contemplate the construc
tion of a levee that will cost SQ0.000
when completed. It is to extend from
the bluff west along the present road to
the Fourth slougo, thence down the
high ridge on the east of the slough to
New Boston, using that portion of the
present road from the bluff) to the slough
for a levee. The - Lrst assessment
amounted to bbout f 13,000 and a con
ideraole portion of it has been paid in
and expended in filling the cuts in low
places, those for a distance cf 12 miles
down haying been filled. '
This is the main reason the committee
appointed to ex-n,ine into the advisa
bility of gracing a cherter to the Drury
Toll Road Company recommended to
the Rock Island supervisors that
if the road is built it be made
tight from the first slough east to the
bluff, as to leavt an opening in the road
between the bluff and sloneh would ren
der the levee worthless. It is understoi d
that some of the residents of Drury town
ship regtrd the nquirment of a tight
rohd with fsvor and doubtless the Toil
Rotd Co. wiil be glad to build in that
way if tbey should be allowed the oppor
tunity to chirge tolls sufficient to reim
burse them for its actua! c-- st
The Wealthiest Man in Maryland.
On the register of the Fifth Avenue
hotel New ork, there was written re
cently in tremulous lines the name of J.
Tome, Port Deposit, M1. Mr. Tome
is the wealthiest man in Maryland,
Baltimore millionaires alone barred.
He is b8 years of age, but, the Atli'cr
liscr says, his years have not de
stroyed his vigor of body or mental
ity. 1U is worth v5,0.)0,00 to fS.OOJ,
000, according to the Murylaiidcr, who
tells of his wealth, and he made it iu
lumlier and banking, beginning life
with little or no education. He is the
president of four national banks, in- ,
eluding the biggest one in the city
where he lives. He has been twice
married, but has no children, and re
cently entered upon the construction
at Port Deposit of a great structure for
the instruction of boys and youths in
all branches of education, trade and
sciences his aim being to make some
thing like the Drexel school in Phila
delphia. He has set aside $3,0 D.OOO
with which to endow this institution.
Some idea of Mr. Tome may be gath
ered from a comment passed upon him
when he was a member of the Mary
land state senate, lie had been argu
ing in favor of an educational bill and
earnestly begged for its passage, say
ing he was au example of a man who
never had aiiy education at school and
he believed that public schools were
the blessing of the country. One of
his fellow members interrupted him
with these words: "Will the senator
pardon me, but I am glad there was no
public M-ooIs in his day or wo wou'.d
not have had a Tome to teach us our
duty now. when he owns one-fourth of
Frederick Weyerhaeuser is beyond
question the lumber king of the north
west. He ranks with Col. North, the
nitrate king of Peru; with Mackay, the
bonanza miner; with Spreckles, the sugar
man, and with many others who have
achieved distinction by large deals. For
two years Mr. Weyerhaeuser has been
getting options on the standing timber in
northern Minnesota until he and his asso
ciates now own more pine than any man
or corporation in the country, or possibly
in the world. D¥port Democrat.
