HOW OCEANS WERE MADE.
It. has been commonly assumed
that the water of the ocean was orig
inally fresh, and that it became grad
ually saher as the rivers carried down
to it the'salts held in solution. Mr.
H. N. Moseily, in a recent lecture be
fore the London Royal Institution,
thinks that even the primative, sea
must have been highly charged with
saline matters of all kinds. When the
earth was still intensely heated; the
whole of the water now on itseiicfaqc
must have been present as gas it Its
atmosphere, at first no doubt dissoci
ated, but afterward an aqueous vapor.
Siiyceif the sea bottoms and conti- j
netfts were smoothed down to a uni
fornrfevel, the sea would still suffice
to ebver the entire earth to a depth of
r,ooo fathoms, aqueous vapor equal to
a layer of water of that thickness,
must-have existed in the atmosphere,
and have produced a pressure of more
than a ton on the square inch at the
earth’s surface. To this pressure must
have been added that produced by all
the other vapors with which the pri
mitive atmosphere must have been
filled.
As the earth cooled the water con
densed on the coolest spots from time
to time, boiled, and rose as vapor
again. Mr. Mallet conjectures that the
fint water formed on the earth’s sur
face may have been even as hot as
mblteft cast iron. At last permanent
seas were established. The waters of
these, heated to an intensely high
pressure, must have dissolved salts in
abundance from'.the freshly consoli
dated earth’s cnist, add being con
stantly in a state.ebullition as the
pressure diminished at the surface
with the growth of ihe seas, or the
temperature qf the surface
varied places, must have
taken up vaStyjuautiles of rock mat
ter in suspensujp hnd become thickly
charged with volcanic mod. Intense
ly hot rain must have failed on the
land and have washed down more
salts and mud into the sea. The
whole ocean must have consisted of ?
vast mass of seething mud. It must
Jave required a protracted period for
sie ocean to become clear, and for its
deposit, which was perhaps sqmewhat
r like the present deep sea- fed. mud, to
settle* and possibly th| deeper water
Ibnged remained Uninhabitable, be
ing overcharged with various gases
and salts and suspended mud.
Nobody’s reputation apd honor are
safe in this cynical agyi For the
last ten years Mt. 4n Nepaul,
has been considered the hjjghest moun
tain in the world, reaching the re
spectable height of 29,002 feet.
Dhawalagiri and Kuchinjinga, in the
Mmf range, with about 28.000 feet
each, shared this honor between them
until Maj.-Effenfesl of the Bengal en
gineers, discus iM their big brother.
Before they were measured Humboldt
thought some points m the South
American Andes reached the highest
altitude on ovr globe) And- now
comes Capt. J. A. Lawson* fiho has
discovered in the little known island
of New Guinea a peak t ha treats them
all, which he has appropriately bailed
Mt. Hercules, and fixed its elevation
a‘ 32,786 feet above the level of the
sea.
The Rio Grande extension to Gun
nison City is all under contract, and
will be pushed through so as to peach
there early in the year. Some 500 men
will be at work down the Tumithi
valley, so all of Ait portion may be
finished the preseot season 1 before
freezing. The line goes over Marshall
P**, and thence around/{ht‘ side of
the western slope, wtqrtfa very good
grade has been obtained. From Gun
nison the rood wtH push on to Irwin;
Dona Ana Rafaels, a very rich Cu
ban lady, is at Saratoga, and she makes
all the men want to go to Cuba. Sev
eral are already bound to have Ana.
The track of the Atchison, Topeka
4t Santa ft road is now laid to San
San Marcial, N. M., 25 miles south of
Socarro.
