This remarkable phenomenon of
nature extend- over -K) mile-' along the
Colorado river, varying in width from
ten to fifteen miles, in depth from
KKK) to S.'.OO feet, riing in series of ter
ace.s. often beautifully colored and
marked and frequently castelated ami
jveaked. The channel is winding and
sometimes ery narrow, who-e somber
rcces-es the .-litis ray rarely visit. Tlie

countless rapid-, wliirliwiols, swirling

The Grand cannon is -Hunted in very
rough country, thinly settled and out
of the beaten paths of travel, and that
with the extreme ditlicultv of entering
it either from above or by the perilous
water- below have con-pired to keep
one ot the groate.-t wonder- of the
world a veritable terra iticogni:. A
careful examination of ihe country
and its forma. ion has comi.iccd the
w -iter that the old theory, as tauulit
in our text looks of geology, that the
Grand canon i- the result of the ero-ion
of water for many millions ot years,
and the at.empt of some to apptoxi
mate the age of the globe by calculation-,
upon the -upio-ed time ncce
sary to wear 7M0 or MAX) feet of stone.
is altogether untenable and incon-i
tent with our pre-cnt knowledge of
tojiography. The whole region gives
unuii-takable p-oof of oice le:'ig a
.-ea-botto.ii by the wate--vvo-n rock-deiMit.-
of salt, fos-ils, coia', etc., to !
found everywheve. It now ha- an
altitude of .00 to HOC feet, the re-ult
of volcanic upheavals, a id it i- to this
that we can look for an explanation of
the Grand c-ifion. Tip- gig.vu'c ii
lifting of the earth's crut cau-ed huge
ti-siircs to occur in the soft sand and
silt through which ihe torrents of es
caping waters tore wuh irre-istible
fury gouging out the upper part of
the exi-iing channel in a comparative
ly short time. This accounts for it
great width from -ide tu side and also
explain- the cleavage of the I!uck-k:ii
mountains, which rise 2000 feet above
the level of the canon's banks and
could never have been the work of
erosion. The basaltic foiiual-oii in
many parts of the canon, the immense
!ieds of scoria.- known as malp.ii rock,
which everywhere abounds, the silici
lied forc-rtsand the great craters of ex
tinct volcanoes in northern Arizona,
all tKiint to a time of volcanic activ
ity, when those twin monster.- of the
primal world lire and water con
tended for mastery.
The lirst stratum of the cafio.i,
which extends down several hundred
fet, is u sandsione; ne:.t comes a
shale, or slaty, formation and under
neath lies a bed of limes'one which, in
some places, notably Marble Canon,
stum to be much deeper than at others.
In this limestone silver is more or le-s
to ' found. Next comes a s r.i.uin
of -alt. That near the junction of the
Little Colorado with tin- parent stream
has liecn mined for many years by the
Supia, Moqui and Ed Ciiy Indians.
Below h:s rock salt comes the p'inie
val g-anitc, ha-d as adamant and bear

Who were these mysterious people,
and what was ihe cause of their sud
den extinction? Whether an awful
Iestilcucc swept them into oblivion or
tlie armed hordes of some fiercer tri I it
tore them from their peaceful home
will always be one of the dark sccret-
of that strange land. Many of their
habitations are almost imu-ee-silile
perched on some dizy clitl', neto i
tating the Use of ropes to reach them.
What is needed in Arizona is a set
tlement of this othcial muddle. It is
not so much a- to who gets the otlice-
as to have the propo-ition stttled.
Two spiritual medium-, Mrs. Kieh,
of lie-ton, and the wife of Ir. J. W.
Fletcher, a lopul.ir speaker on the
spiritual platform, utilized their "spirit
controls" very advantageously la-t
race day at Saratoga. They claim to
have been directed to go to the race
that d.iv and bet on certain horst .
which they were asjured would be the

directed and each of the l.tdie- wa- the
lucky winner of more than l.i.'OO.
Parents should be careful that their
children do not contract cold- during
the fall or early winter month-. Such
