AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
law the Enormous Ftmubtb of the 8e
Water Affects Sunken Objects.
An extraordinary circumstance
that has been noticed with interest,
and that always creates surprise
when first learned, is the entire ab
sence of foreign matter in the deeper
part of the ocean's floor. Of all the
vessels lost in midocean, of all the
human beings that have been
drowned, of all the marine animals
that have perished, of all the clay,
sand and gravel let fall by dissolving
icebergs, of all the various substances
drifted from every shore by shifting
currents, not a trace remains, but in
their place water from 1,000 to 2,500
fathoms in depth covers the uniform
deposit of thick, bluish, tenacious
slime called globigerina ooze.
A bit of this under a powerful lene
is a revelation of beauty not readily
forgotten. The ooze is composed al
most entirely of the daintiest, most
delicately beautiful shells imaginable.
At depths greater than 2,500 fathoms
the bottom of the sea consists mainly
of products arising from exposure for
almost incalculable periods to the
chemical action of sea water, of pum
ice and other volcanic matters. This
finally results in the formation of the
red clay deposits that are considered
characteristic of the profoundest
depths of the ocean.
Carbonate of lime, which in the
form of the shells of f oraminif era,
makes up so large a part of the globi-
genna ooze, is nere almost entirely
absent. Sea water is very nearly a
universal solvent, and before any
shell, large or small, reaches the bot
tom of these tremendous abysms it
is chemically eaten up, literally dis
solved a result which the enormous
pressure of the water must material
At 1,000 fathoms the weight of the
water pressing on all sides of an ob
ject immersed to that depth is very
nearly one ton to the square inch, or
more than 100 times that sustained
at the sea level, and at the greatest
depths the pressure is so increased
that it would seem nothing could
withstand it, in fact, heavy metal
cylinders let down with the sounding
apparatus are sometimes, on being
drawn up again to the surface, found
bent and collapsed. Strongly made
glass vessels which the metal in
closed are shattered into fragments.
A hundred years ago an inventive
English nobleman declared that it
was possible to make a ship move by
the aid of "steam," without '"masts
or sails." and having spent as much
as he was prepared to afford on re
peated costly plans craved some as
sistance from the state. Of course
the department teiuga wet blanket)
stringently tied up its loan, but hav
ing become persuaded 1 y the result
cf his exiH-nments that he had hope
of success it undertook to build a
small vessel for the would bo in
ventor, to le navigated ""by the
steam engine," on the condition that
if it failed '"all the expense should lo
made good by him."
This generous enterprise of Lord
Stanhojie was highly lauded at the
time, the popular verdict leing thus
expressed, " If it answer, the advan
tage to the public, particularly in in
land navigation, will lie immense."
In this csise the recognition of a
pioneer's jiossible '"usefulness' was
exceptionably favorable. Cornhill
"It is a peculiar tact, observed a
cashier of a popular restaurant, "that
most people help themselves to half
a dozen toothpicks after each meal,
when each individual among them
must know, if he thinks about it, that
he won't more than half use one of
them. But with most of them it is
merely a matter of habit. They fell
into it originally. I supjxise, by yield
ing to the idea that it is true econo
my to help yourself liberally to what
doesn t cost anvthmg. 1 oiten won
der what they do with all the tooth
picks they take away, borne jieople
contract a habit of chewing tooth
picks. It would lie far better for
them if they chewed tobacco or even
gum, for the fiber of the wood often
lodges in the throat or gets into some
piece of internal machinery, where it
plays the mischief." New York Her

In spite of the miserable weather our opening last Saturday
proved a marvelous success; ' everyone seemed delighted with the new
store, the new styles, and of course our always existing Low Prices.
It was equally gratifying to us to again greet our many friends and note so many who had actually
inconvenienced themselves in order to favor us by awaiting the opening of our New Clothing
Store. The only regret we have is that we were unable to serve all owing to the big rush. We
have therefore decided to continue the
in order that everyone may have an equal opportunity to snpply themselves with a handsome
spring outfit at a nominal cost.
