Hank Monk, the stage-driver who

Ho now drives on the stngo line be

Ho was driving on the same line last

stopping ut the Glcntimok 'House had
a "Saratoga" at Caiwn which she

wus about as limit und wide as a first

THE FORMATION OF COAL.
Ooul, then, according to tho modern
hypothesis, is merely a transmuted
vegetable soil which accumulated, not
under water, but under the trees com
posing prinucvnl forests. These forests
stood on areas which were subjected to
repeated changes ot level in relation to
thut of tlio ocean. It must bo under
stood thut though the ground beneath
us is popularly regarded us the type of
everything steady nnd immovable, this
ear tit of on in is far from deserving the
baracter for Htahilitv with which it in
thus loudly credited ahsoluto rest is
ull but unknown to it. It happens tlmt
even at the present day there are cer
ium regions, suelt us those stibiect to
volcanic, disturbances, whoso tenden
cies are always to move upwards, like
the more aspiring ol our youths, while
there are others, such as tho coral re
gions, which are stcuuoy Mun,iuat, m.
those Uhfbrtunnto yout lis who have failed
in the voyage of life. So it wus in the
lilen unto. 1 ho coal beds nppour to
huvo accumulated on tho latter class of
ureas areas of depression geograph
ical regions winch bail n tendency to
sink below the level of tlio ocean. Alud
and silt hatl collected upon such areas
until the deposits thus tortned reached
the siirtnco level of the water ; and then
enmo whut nppcurB lo have been neces
sary to the growth of tho coal-plants,
namely, a lied ol peculiar gray mud.
Wc tin not know why that mud came
there, or whence it was derived. That
it wits very diilcrent from the ordinary
deposits, tho sandstones ltud shales,
which accumulated in tho carbonifer
ous ocean, is shown by tlio physical
properties which it still jsishcsscs, nnd
which they do not possess properties
which fit it for tho purposo to which it
is now devoted, of being iiiniiiilhcturcd
into fire-bricks, whence its common
name of fire-clay. That this gray mud
was tho soil preferred by the. great
majority of the plants constituting the
carboniferous forests is ns obvious as
that the oak wood of Herefordshire
and the sunny south will not flourish
upon the cold soils of tlio Lancashire
uplands. .Minute spores, representing
tho seeds ot the plants winch allorward
became coal, were flouted to this mud
by wind und water; nnd finding there
a stiitulilo soil, they germinated, struck
root, nntl soon converted the swampy
urea into a magnificent forest. As tho
lives grew they shed successive showers
of their microscopic spores, which often
tell in such vast iiiiuutities us to consti
tute nil important contribution to tho
accumulating vegetable soil ; hut a long
with them there fell other nnd more
bulky objects, such as might bo expect
ed to ncc umtilntAj under a semi-tropical
forest, the dead leaves, broken branches.
und prostrated stems, uliko contributed
n shure to the decaying vegetable mnss.
In tbo tropical regions of tho present
day such accumulations bocomo rnpidly
dccoinposed, and pass uwuy in gaseous
forms; but such does not appear to
have been tho case in the carboniferous
ngc nt least, not in the snme degree,
Even in Lancashire, notwithstanding
all the influences tending to diminish
the bulk of tho vegetublo muss
such us atmospheric deconiposition-
chemicul changes occurring during
tho lutcr process of mineralization, und
the pressure of super-imposed rocks
prolonged throughout ull subsequent
ages, wo have coul-seams six or seven
feet in thickness, while they occur in
Anierieu, us foroxutnple in the oolitic coal
field on tho James river, with tlio sur
prising thickness of betwoen thirty and
forty feet. Such accumulations of
vegetublo Soil as this thickness of solid
coal represents, almost exceed compre
hension, and must indicate enormous
periods of undisturbed forest life. But
nt length a chnnge came over the
sylvan scene ; tho hind sank whether
suddenly or slowly we havo no means
of saying. The numbers nf dead fishes
found on the roofs and upor portions
of somo coals seem to indicate a sudden
rush of pure water over tho laud, fol
lowed by tho quick destruction of the
fishes, tioisoned by tlio bituminous
vegetublo mud in which they found
themselves entangled. In other cases
tlio roof of clean blue shale, devoid of
ull nppenrnnco ut either animal nr
vegetublo remains, nnd resting inuiicdi
uU'ly upon a defined stirlhco of pure
coal', is suggestive of a slower submerg
ence, allowing timo for tiie destruction
and obliteration of all traces of grow
ing vegetation upon its surface. The
extent and duraltou of thu submerged
stngo has varied, as also has, in ull
probability, tlio kind of water under
which it sunk. Whether the coui
meusuitis nro nmriuo or fresh water
desMsit is still an open question, aud
answer to which depends partly upon
the nature of certain bivalve shells
(Anlhructxiui) lbtind in connection
with ninny of the coals. It is allowed
by tho advocates of the murine hypoth
esis, that tho ganoid fishes uo common
among the curlxiuiferous beds uro us
likely to bo frcsb water animals as
murine ones rt ho only living ganoids
with w hich we lire acquainted, being
found in rivers and not in tbo sea; but
tho weiglit of this argument is iniito
rittlly reduced by the fuel thut in thc.se
puleozoio nges ull the known fishes
were either ganoids or placoids: and no
one doubts for n moment thai the great
mnss, even of the former, must Luve
been marine, otherwise wc obtuiu in the
reihictio ad alisurdum that there were
no fishes in many uf the ancient seas.
Rut there remains yet a tuoro conclu
sive urgutnunt in favor of tlio murine
hypothesis.1 Alnuyol tho remains ot
fishes found both ui the lowermost anil
in tho uppermost oohI-ImkIs are those of!
placoids ancient sharks, ollcnol large
siao and of many sistcies. These
fishes, which are quite as abundant in
the carboniferous rocks us are tho gan
oids, were certainly murine animals,
nnd indicate in tin irrcfragublu manner
the marine submergence of some ut
least of tho coal -aca n is. Rut the prob
abilities of the case suggests tho conclu
sion that the nature ui the water would
vary at dillereiit localities. Wo fre
quently meet with long narrow areas
of sandstone plowing theirwuy through
conl-senins which rentiniio their uni
form course right and left of those in
terruptions. Wo may com hide, witli
great probability, that such sudden in
terruptions to the continuity of tlio
vegetublo soil represent ancient creeks
or estuaries which nut in among the
forests, and which, doubtless, reocived
their drainago in the ahupe of brooks
antl rivers. In such cases, submergence,
if not too rapid, Would cause the vege
table soil to be overflowed by, fresh
water at least over limited area but
in other instance the numerous re
mains of sharks imbedded in tho eoal
tell of tlio unmistakable proximity of
tno aca. . . . ,.' . , i ..
The ultimate plivsicnl effects of these
two agencies would lie tho same. Huc
cesnive layers nf sand and mud were
deposited until tho accumulations once
more reached the siirtnco, and the in
dispensable fire-clay again made its ap
pearance. Then, as now, nature 'de

caught on the vane ofa church steeple,

tried to blow him loose with shot guns

When a man dies mid Iciivcs a nice
young witlow with plenty of moivey,
anil you see her walking out with our
of the executors on Sunday, a chanui;
Hkclaimixh ' Lamp. In San Fran
cisco nro 3.000 acres of shifting sand.
which are not only worthies, hut the
cause of great annoy unco to tho public
in their unruclaiined condition. Tbey
lire on tbo western or (scan side of
the city, and very light breezes nre j
stillicient to drive the sand inland, to
tho great discomfort of the citizens.
Tho engineer of the Golden Gate Park
has shown how these sands can be
reclaimed and mado of grout value.
It is found that the yellow lupine will
grow itixurienllv in mien placet,
thrusting its roots into the sand, aud
w hen once established, iji a short time
it covers the barren waste with liettu
tiflil vegetation. A top soil is' thus
formed, after which grass will grow.
Tho average cost of reclaiming an
acre of land at the Golden Gate Park
bus been livm. thirty toibrty-livo dol
lars. 1 . . ,. !

swore, that hi stepfather, thu Count
