Agasslz saw tlie hardest rocks on the grentest helghts rounded nnd pollshed ns lf some vnst welght 'had passed over them; hc saw them scratch ed as by n fllo of nngular stones dragged nlong; luige mounds of looso enrth were symmctrlenlly rounded; henped ln llnes along tho coast wcro rldges of grent bowl ders nnd rock debrls ns lf thcro hnd ln deed been tho dumplnR-giound of the ages; lakcs and ponds nbounded ln cor tnln belts, though not found elsewhore; rocks welghing tons were scattered nll nbout as lf thrown from thelr parent ledgcs-by somo Titan'a hand; nlcely form cd rlver beds oxtended ncross the country through banks of air and termlnated ln broad deltas of sand wlthln lakes of alr. Agasslz hnd seen tho work of movlng lco ln Swltzerland. IIo knew lce hnd been here. It hail melted nwny. Ile lald down tho premlses of the glaclnl theory from whlch pcrfectly satlsfactory deductlons havo been derlved by later workers. I'revlous to Agasslz, howevcr, other premlses had Heen assumed and other de ductlons mado more or less satlsfylng to i tnoir supporiers. Anu nero la tne uir flculty thnt ls contlnually bcsettlng scr entlflc progress and destroylng the fnltlf of tho publlc. We nll know wlth whnt dellght the pop ulnr lecturer upon chemlstry mlxes chlo rino enough to polson n dozen people wlth sodlum enough to klll ns mnpy more nnd then hlmself cnlmly ents nll of the hnrmless salt whlch results. Obversely wo nll know how tho schollast was wont to comblno two slmple, nccepted tmtbs ln such a wny through the sylloglsm ns to produce some unusual concluslon contnln lng polson enough to klll the work of a generatlon of thlnkers. It ls so easy, so convlnolng to make deductlons whlch af tor all can be correct only so fnr as tho premlses nre correct. It U so hard to uso that patlent observntlon, thnt appre-, henslvo reasonlng power, that vlvld lm nglnntlon necessary to attaln tho cor rect premlses that nulto naturnlly most of us nro occupled ln maklng deductlons. Much credlt should be glven Professor Davls of Ilnrvnrd collego for hls careful study of tho terraces of New England and tho very concluslvo theory that has re sulted. Certalnly lor hlm who sees nnd understnnds lt ls only a step from tho fnlllng npplo to tho law of gravltatlon, from whnt ls to what has been, from the known to the related unknown. The Bnl astler brook, such n brook ns one mlght find ln almost every town, presents all the Ilfe of a rlver on so small a scale that lt can be comprehended almost at a glance. Far up on tho hlllside tho sllvery cascades nro cuttlng back tho hard rock face as surely as at Nlagara. Down tho slope tho swift strcam Is cuttlng down lts deep valley wlth the same klnd of tools nnd 'n the same wny as tho Millers rlver Is maklng lts long gorgo. On tho lowland nenr lts mouth tho brook Is swlnglng from slde to slde, formlng curves nnd ousps, oxbows nnd lslands, ce mentlng the lslands ngaln to the mnlnland and fasulonlng Its shores lnto terrnces Just as the older Connecticut has been dolng for thousands of yenrs. And yet the step from the present back to tho pnst has been a dlfllcult one to tako. Tho lce was here. It has melted, and tho ter races, supposed to bo proofs of the great volume of water resultlng thcrefrom, wero tho sunjects. of study before tho school of sclenco at tho Iast lesson. Tlie class was under the lmmcdlate guldanco of JIlss Flsher of the Goologlcnl Department at WelleHley, to wliom n voto of thanks was oxtended for the vnluablo lesson sho had nfforded. Mlss is..er has mado nn especlal study bf thls reglon nnd pro sented the latest theory concernlng the formatlou of the terrnces. Brattleboro ls one of the best places ln the world to study torraces, because threo streams, the Connecticut, tho West ltlver nnd Whotstone Brook havo hero cut Into the glacial drlft, thus affordlng nn unusual amount of materlnl from whlch to drnw lnferonces. Professor Barton sald of the old the ory that It hnd assumed a broad strenm of water fed by tho meltlng glacler nnd whose flood-plaln extended from rock bank to rook bank, a dlstance hero of from flfteen to twenty mlles ln places. Elther by the dlmlnutlon of tlie water or tho re-elevatlon of tho land, tho rlvor and lts flood plalns hnd sunk to succes slvely lower levels, untll the present bed was reached, leavlng behlnd lts old llood plalns ln tho form of terraces whlch should bo found ln palrs of prnctlcally tho same level, parnllel to tho rlvor's h'-d nnd should slope toward tho sea. Surh Is not tho case, however, and there nro besldes other dlfflcultles whlch thls hy pothesls does not meet. The new theory ns presented by Mlss Flsher rosts upon the tendency of mnd ern rlvers to meander ln sweeplng cui -a nnd oxbows. Through these meanderln ts the bed of the strenm may bo canled l r mlles ncross the country, lndeed untll It meets tho opposltlon of the rock walls on elther sldo. Its current Is thon defleet.-d ln tho opposlte dlrectlon, and tho bed 'f tho stream rotraverses tho ground jr 10 over before, It c'arrles forward lts 11 vi plaln ns It swlngs ncross tho valley, whlfh remnlns to becomo a terrnco; but, ns rlv ers nre contlnually cuttlng down. uuo'r the roturn swlng, tho new flood plaln Is nt a sllghtly lower level than the flist.

The Common terrnco nt Urattloboio II lustrntes the typlcal features of every lerracc, a llood-plnln nbove. the acarp. the flood plain below nnd the two mar jlns. Of these marglns the lower ls the moro Importnnt, lweause lt inorb certnln ly accords wlth tho llne of tho rlvor. The upper marglp ls usually wenthered nnd crodcd nnd not Infrequently artlflcially nltcred. The slngle scarp of thls terraco nbruptly dlvldes Itsclf Into two terrnces on ono slde, "presenting n puzzlc whlch could not be workcd out by the old the ory. The now Idea, however, supposes that the return current would not prob nhly strlke llie shore nt the same nnglo ns befoie. It mlght thereforo cut oft tho cnds of ono terrnco, so as apparently to lcnve nn Intermedlatc one. From IM-oopect street, whlch forms the thlrd terrnco on the northeast 8ldo of Whetstonc Brook ono can clenrly per celve four on the oppoaite slde. Theso terrnces formed on elther sldo of the brook nppcar nt llrst to be ln palrs nt nbout tho same level. Actual survey, however, would show them to be at sllghtly dlfterent levels. The terrace at the cemetery exhlblts tho effect of eroslon upon tho upper mar gin ln contrast to the lower, whlch re talns tho rlver llne. It also glvcs an Idea of the concavltles nnd cusps produced by tho tendency of the rlver to sweep down ward so that the strongest lmpact of lts current strlkes nt polnts successlvely far ther down the stream. The cusps ln dlcato opposltlon to lts eroslvo nctlon. Thls terraco furthermore shows the ap parcnt obllterntlon of one terrnce, ns at tho common. Across 'Whctstono brook, the fourth or hlshest terrace, where the fair grounds nre located, abuts dlrectly upon tho rock wnlls, whlch conflne tho great glaclnl deposlts. These contlnulng wnlls were of little importnnco to tho fol lowers of tho enriler tneory. Tliey nro of nll Importnnce with the new, not only llmitlng the lateral movement of tho rlver. but nlso controlllng tho dlrectlon It will take across tho valley. The drivo back and forth nlong the ter rnces down into the Whetstone valley past tho hospital, past the works of tho Kstey Organ Co., afforded dellghtful views of thls wealthy old town, ns well ns tlo opportunity to study tho relations of the terraces, In tho lowest part of tho valley rock ledires appeared ngaln, showlng that the brook In its meander Ing llfo hnd cut entlrely through the drlft deposlt to the bed rock below. Urattleboro owes much of Its charm indirectly to lts medlcal lnstitutlons. The wnlkes and drlves hero wero begun to nfford pleasuro to Dr. Wesselhoeft's pa tlents nt tho Wnlercure, The Iletrent for tho lnsano, whlch owns the west slde of Wnntnstlquct Mounaln nnd n thlrd of tho town lands perhnps hns contlnued tho pnrk constructlon so well begun. The wnlk from the Itetrent toward the great mead ow, n flood plaln of the West rlver, con tninlng 13S ncres, enables one to observo the lower mnrgln of the terrnco near at hand wlth lts drnlnago chnnnel nt the bnck nnd tho outlet of thls drnlnngo Btrenm upon the plaln below. The dlffer ence of level between the ndvnnced edge of the terrnco nnd the back llne nmount lng In thls cnse to ten feet, wns nlso notlced. A mnrked dlfferenco of level be tween tho ouler nnd Inner edge of the flood plaln would probably establlsh lts formntlon from Kn Island through the jrndual fllllng up of tho channel on one slde. Such n dlfference ls due also to tho flrst slackonlng sometlmes of tho current on t)m outer edgo durlng flood perlods nnd the thereforo greater deposlt. The terrnces beyond tho Itetreat show besldes that, though tho surfaces of these flood nlalns nppenr level ln the dlstnnee, thoy nro really nulto uneaven and contain mnny deop dopresslons. The fertillty ro sulting from tho nnnual alluvlnl deposlt they recelvo was attcsted by n group of snnshes InbellPd resppcllvely 189 pounds, 170 pounds, 223U pounds. Tho great mendow nffords nnother ex amplo' of tho controlllng Inlluence of rock walls.

KNIGHT Retail Shoe Dealer Explanatlon In Order. Northfield Nows. Although It Is of course a matter of record that tho general assembly of 1S9S provlded that tho governor should make provislon for the collectlon nnd settlement of Vcrmont's wnr clalm agalnst tho Unltcd States govcrnment, most peoplo nre grcatly surprlsed at tho cost. It np penrs from Gov, McCullough's messago that of tho $280,000 rccelved by Vermont In settlement, there was pald from lt to clalm agents the sum of $10,000, or nearly 15 per cent. of the totnl amount. Feople generally would be Interestcd ln knowing why lt was necessary If lt was necessary that such a seemlngly extravagant sum should be pald for thls work. When a slmllar clalm was secured by Mnssachu setts sometlme slnce, the stnto oftlclals wero very much exerclsed over what they regarded ns the unreasonable ohnrges of the clalm agents and nt flrst rcfused to nllow such pnyment out of the fund. It wns found, however, that tho late Gov. Wolcott mado the trade wlth the ngents and that the price must bo pald. The Mnssachusetts oftlclals nnd newspapers, so far as known, were never nble to flnd out why such nn outrageous sum 'was pald for thls work, as Gov, Wolcott was dead nnd thereforo could not oxplaln hls ren sons for maklng an agrccmont on the basls ho dld. Ex-Gov, Smlth, however, can probably explaln why lt was neces sary to pay such a large sum to agents to securo Vermont's clalm.
