The history of this earth movejrnent
and the conditions surrounding the
different invasions of the sea Into the
continent are revealed by the study of
the rock strata and their fossils. As.
tha animal and plant life has changed
from period to period, differing m
each of the inland seas, It is 'particu
larly; to she study of these fossils tnat
geologists owe their knowledge of the
time relations of each period in geolo
gic chronology. . The fossils show tie
climaticl conditions, the nature of tte
shores; and the depth to. the ocoauAc;
connections, . k
: An important addition to our knowjf
etige of one of , the very ancient seas
the Onondaga has been made by B.
M. Kindle, in a paper just' published
oy ,the-Uhited-Statea Geological Su
vfcy as Bulletin 508. ,: This-sea whicn
is very far from neing one of the most
arcient of the Paleozoic,' though, 4t
d.'-tes back probably, more 'than a uhn
Jred times as far as the great Ice Age,
is. known as .the Onondaga, because
the criteria revealing and:characteriz
iiig: 'it were first brought to light In
Onondaga County, in northern New,
York. Mr. Kindle shows that the pecu
liar forms" inhabiting the Onondaga
tea extended through Pennsylvania,
Maryland ,and Virginia for hundreds
ot miles in the waters of a sea whose
eastern shore line was not far west
of the site where jthe Blue Ridge now
stands. From southwestern Virginia
this shore line appears to have trend
ed westward not far from the Ken
tv eky-Tenneseee line as far as. the
present valley of Tennessee River and
at some point was connected with the
great inland sea covering the present
Mississippi' 'Valley. The Onondaga
waters were, warm, as is shown by the
presence of corals and other tropical
or subtropical types of sea life. The
technical descriptions of these fossils
compose, the main part of the bulletin,
which is of interest especially to those
concerned with the study of the ex
tinct molluscan faunas.
The: great basin occupied by ?he
Onondaga sea was later warped and
greatly changed and its easter-i por
tions were filled to a thickness of r,000
tc 10,000 feet by sediment, mostly 'Jo-
rived from the elevated but com para-j
tively narrow remnants of the conti
nent, lying -act of the present P.lue'
Ridge,. If these sediments were piled
upon a level plain they woulo form
a mountain range equaling In height
and extent the Sierra Nevada of Cali
fornia. Bulletin 508, which js technical m

The greater longevity of women
than of men is shown by recent
French insurance statistics, the ad
vantage on the feminine siJ being
almost one third.
Thus the average age at death of
femnine annuitantson one company's
books is 70, while for m?a it is i -ir-ly
50. Another company 1ms several
centenarians, all women, or. 'rs loks.
These annuitants have already receiv
ed their money back five or six
times over. The company is thinking
of revising its tariff, making the scale
for women much higher.
A distinguished doctor, when asked
to account for women's longer lives,
"Men live much harder and -'iioke
and drink too much, even though fbev
rarely work too much. Women are
wiser and think of the future, nr'v
smoke and drink one-tenth as .TMh,
while their preoccupations and r.oral
sufferings are much less intense
"At 40 a woman is in the plentitude
of her physical powers, while a man
at the same age has probably con
tracted organic weaknesses which will
shorten life." New York Times. J
