Ills theory I that final cataclysm may pos sibly be the result of a collision lie tweeu the sub and some dark, dead, Orcllct planet Although astronomers hare no 'ac tual proof that such dead una exist without life or light and careering about In space, they believe It quite possible. The result of a collision be tween the sun and a dark planet would be that the former light and heat would be enormously. t increased and the earth Instantly destroyed by combustion, rrofessor Gore tell bow we should be warned of our approaching doom. -When about 15.000.000 mile from the sun. the dark body would begin to shine by reflected light In about ten years It would have become so bright aa to be visible to the naked eye. In fifteen years It would be brighter than any object except the moon. Very soon afterward would com the great catas trophe of Its collision, moving at 400 mile a second, with the aun moving at the same speed." Dundee Observer. England In Virginia.

The aecondary and tertiary geological for usatioua often present the appearance of Immense basins, the boundary or rim Of the basin having been formed by an upheaval of adjacent strata. In these formations It often happens that a poroua stratum, consisting of sand, sandstone, chalk or other calcareous natter, la Included between two Imper meable layers of clay so aa to form a flat poroua U tub$ continuous from side to aide of the valley, the outcrop on the surrounding hills forming the mouth of the tube. The rain filtering down through the poroua layer to ths liottotn of the basin forms there a sub terranean pool, which, with the liquid or semMlquid column pressing upon It constitutes a sort of huge natural by drostatlc bellows.
