BOUNDARY MARKS
Limits a Fiery Orator Once Gave
. the United States..
m rates of empires and of tVynas-
ties have been involved In toe struggle
for boundaries. The figment that the j
Rhine was the natural frontier of j
France ended in the downfall of the I
Bona partes and the exaltation of the '
BohenzoUerns, thus rearing the neo- '
German empire upon the ruins of the j
upstart French empire. ' j
In our own country the cry of "Fif- 1
ty-four-forty or Unlit!" herd a threat j
of the mighty conflict that eventually !
proved irrepressible. And In our own !
day the dispute over the Venezuelan
boundary nearly precipitated a war
between the two greatest nations of
the earth.
It whs a startling flKUxe of speech,
that of the western orator who, mount
ing higher and higher to a climax of
buncombe, described the United States
as bounded ou the east by the Atlantic
ocean, on the north by the aurora bo
real Is. on the west by the setting sun
and on the south by the gates of belL
Still. It was only a figure of speech.
Canada lien between us and the boreal
aurora. The Latin American states
to the south hardly denerve the infer
nal comparison. As to the oceans to
the east and the west of us, they may
be left to themselves. Not mine the
task of determining what the wild
waves are saying.
The Canadian boundary presents Us
idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. The
eastern part of it follows naturally
and spontaneously the regular water
line formed by the great lakes and
their outlets. Thence from the Lake
of the Woods on the north of Minne
sota a more direct course, man mads
and mechanical, is taken through the
wilderness and over the mountains of
tbe went to the Pacific coast Nor has
this course been suffered to remain a
mere Imaginary line. Man, having
made it, has marked It well. Between
tbe Lake of tbe Woods and the Red
river east iron pillars have been
placed one mile apart alternately by
the English and the American govern
ments. These are' hollow castings In
pyramidal form eight feet high, with
a base eight inches square, an octa
gon flange one inch thick and a top
four inches square surmounted by a
solid cap.
Into these hollow posts are fitted
well seasoned cednr Joists, with spikes
driven through boles made in the cast
ing. The pillars are firmly Imbedded
in the ground. Inscriptions In raised
letters face north aud south. Ths
north side reads, "Convention of Lon
don;" rhe other. "October 20. 181&"
Beyond the Red river the boundary
line Is generally denoted by earth
mounds and stone cairns 7 by 8 feet,
though these are occasipnally diversi
fied by wooden posts of tbe same
height as the iron pillars aud painted
red above ground. Through forests
clearings have been made a rod wide.
Where bodies of water are crossed
monuments of stone rise several feet
above high tide. Ovr tbe mountains
bafts of granite supersede the pillars,
mounds and'eairns.
There are eccentricities In state
lines as well as In those which limit
th confines of the United States.
Thus the line tbat separates Delaware
from Pennsylvania (Newcastle and
Chester counties respectively! sudden
ly curves upward and forms a semi
circle Just above the ancient town ot
Newcastle.
The explanation may be found In
history. At the time Delaware was
et oat there were few points of lati
tude and longitude definitely estab
lished In the colonies, so tbat bound
aries were generally expressed not by
latitude and longitude, but by refer
ence to some known location. In the
deed by which Delaware was trans
ferred there wss ceded all ths land for
twelve miles round Newcastle, togeth
er with certain other arens. ln estab
lishing tbe botmdnrlea of tbe present
state of Delaware this description was
taken literally, and part of a circle,
with tbe center at Newcastle, was sur
veyed upon a twelve mile radius
No other state bus an arc in Its
boundary line, but many of the coun
ties of Kentucky and Tennessee do
Warren county. Tenn.. ts almost a com
plete circle In runny Instances coua
ties, formerly circular have been ex
panded into Irregular polygons. Wil

Carrier Snails Load Their Backs With
All Sorts of Refuse.
The carrier snail Is to the sea what
tbe Junkman Is to tbe land. It re
ceives Its name from Its habit of car
rying foreign objects on its back.
Nothing comes umlss to the carrier
snail If It is not too big. Castoff sheila
of small molluscs, bits of broken coral.
tiny stones and even fragments of '
broken glass dropped overboard from '
passing vessels are cemented firmly to
tbe edges of tbe growing shell, nor Is ''
this curious creature satisfied when
the shell is completely covered, but
continues to add to its collection by s
fastening new pieces to the old ones -already
plied upon its back until It Is
no longer able to move beneath its bur
den. As ft Is an inhabitant of tropical wa-
ters swurming with voracious fish,
crabs, etc.. there Is method In Its mad
ness Its hungry enemies pass It by,
unable to distinguish it from the rocks
and shells on tbe sea bottom. Some of
the snails show a preference for tiny l
pebbles all of one shape and equal slae. -others
accumulate only shells of one "
kind, and one picked up off tbe coast '
