One of Prof. Huxley's most Interest
ing lectures was entitled "On a Tiere
of Chalk." Chalk Is. a species of lime
stone made up mostly of the shells of
minute organisms, which appear to
good advantage only under the micro
scope. The northern portion of France
and the southern shores of Kngland
are wholly made up of chalk cliffs,
which present a very striking appear
ancethe old name for England, Al
bion, being derived from a word signi
fying this white appearance. It is
found that In the deep sea dredings
these minute organisms which consti
tute the chalk formation are ttlll ac
cumulating, though at a very slow
rate. Chalk is therefore supposed to
be a deep seu formation.
Rocks of corresponding age In other
portions of the world are known as
cretaceous, the word being derived
from the Latin word creta, signifying
chalk. These formations occupy a wide
belt In the states west of the Missouri
river, extending from Texas Into Brit
ish America, but there is not very
much true chalk such as we are fa
miliar with in the schoolroom in this
area. The rocks, however, are made
up of a species of shells, which are
very beautiful and preserve still their
Iridescent color.
Another Interesting locality where
chalk Is found Is over the hills of Pal
estine Mount Olivet and many of the
summits of mountains further south
in Palestine, and the hill on which
Nazareth Is built, being of that age
and consisting, in considerable part,
of pure chalk.
The chalk formations lie in about
the middle of the geological horizon
and are several million years old.
nient of lime Is united to ono unit of
carbon und two of oxygen, which
forms the deadly poison known as car
bonic acid gas. All the limestone in
the world, therefore, represents such
nn amount of carbonic acid gas with
drawn from the atmosphere, that
should It be all set free, man and most
land animals would find it Impossible
to live in It.
Those familiar with burning lime
must have had their attention called
to this fact by the deadly nature of
the gas that settles around the lime
kiln. The burning of lime consists in
applying such a degree of heat that
flie carbonic acid gas is expelled from
the limestone, leaving a simple form
of lime, which reunites with oxygen
when water is admitted to It. It Is
this carbonic acid expelled by heat
which forms the deadly gas of lime
Kilns, making it dangerous for chil
dren or animals to lie down and sleep

. A colored man was tried the other

made out against the colored man
and he confessed.
"I reckon I ain't got uothiu' to say,

"Well, since you admit your guilt."

They regulate the Uowela. Purely Vegetable
Coming down to our own line, we
find the process of limestone forma
tion still going on with great rapidity
In certain localities. The peninsula
of Florida illustrates this In the most
striking measure. Sea shells are so
abundant all along the east coast of
Florida that they are washed up upon
the shore In windrows, forming indeed
tho entire shore line, while as one pro
ceeds to the interior of the state he
finds successive windrows of shells
that have formerly formed the shore
line, showing how the land has grown
by these slow increments. These
shells' as they are rolled by the water
are broken up and much of them
ground into fine powder, when they,
all together, become cemented Into a
loose rock. The buildings of that re
gionespecially theold fort at St.
Augustine are constructed of tnis
rock, known as coqulna.
In striking contrast with the older
limestone rocks, this on the coast of
Florida is but slightly cemented, and
forms a mass that would not endure
the pressure which rests upon the
foundations of very tall buildings, ltut
on .going to the other end of the geo
logical scale, we find in the older for
mations limestones originally formed
In the same way with those in Florida,
but now compacted into most solid
blocks, having been, ns the geologists
say, "metamorpuoseu uiruu&u iuim
subjection to heat and pressure, btiu
in many of these very old limestone
rocks forms of the shells of wiiicn
they are composed are perfectly pre
served, and the age of the rock is de
termined by the character of these
shells, the earlier rocks having been
produced by the more primitive forms
of life.
The forms of sea life which have
contributed to build up the starta of
limestone are exceedingly various.
Among the most Interesting are the
corals which have contributed to this
result from the earliest times to tho
present. Corals are forms of animal
life which are attached to the sea bot
tomthe animal leaving his shell be
low him as lie dies, and continuing to
live in the upper story, thereby grad
ually adding to the f-olid foundation
from which he started.
In the Pacific ocean and Indian
ocean, and Indeed In most tropical re
gions, corals are still vigorously at
work building up reefs around the
shallow shores of Islands and contt
nents. In tho Pacific ocean these reefs
take upon themselves a circular shape,
oftentimes with deep water upon the
outside, and inclosing a large area of
shallow water within the circle.
A most interesting theory of Dar
win and' Dana to account for theso
circular reefs or "atols," as -they are
called, is that tho coral Insect began
to build up his structure in the shal
low water surrounding a mountain
peak when the whole bed of the ocean
was slowly sinking. As the coral
could not endure the deeper water be
yond, he continued to build up, with
a perpendicular face outward, while
as the ocean bed sank, tho inclosure
between the newly started reef and
the mountain peak would remain free
because of the sediment washing down
from the mountain, which would In
terfero with tho growth of tho coral
Thus it is brought about that in many
cases these circular reefs surround u
body of shallow water, from whose
center a mountain peak arises, while
In other cases the settling of the
ocean bed has gone so far that the
mountain peak has disappeared and
there Is within simply a body of pro
tected water, which makes an excel
lent harbor, if there is any entrance
to it.
Laundry work at homo would be

Starch were used. In order to get tho
desired st'ffuess, it Is usually necea
Bary to use so much starch that tho
beauty and fineness of tho fabric is
hidden behind a pnsto of varying

appearance, but also affects the wear

Among the most Interesting" lime
stone strata of the earlier ages are
the cornlferous and the Trenton lime
stone, which appear in special develop
ment In the islands In the western
Dart of Lake Erie, and in an area
about Cincinnati, though the name
was derived from Trenton, N. Y.,
where the rocks were first carefully
studied. The cornlferous and lren-
ton limestones are favorites every
where for burning lime, while the
solid blocks make the most substantial
building material. The great locks at
the Soo were built of cornlferous lime
stone from Kclley Island in Lake
Erie, like Solomon's temple, every
stone being fashioned at the quarry
and carried directly to its place in the
great structure, many hundred miles
This limestone Is also sought for
very widely for the flux In smelting
Iron, its freedom from impurities giv
ing it special value.
The extent of these deposits over
the United States Is very surprising.
While they appear a' tho surface nt
comparatively few places, they are
penetrated by deep drill holes almost
everywhere In the Mississippi basin,
and In the Hudson river and Mohawk
From what we have already said of
the origin of chalk and of the penin
sula of Florida, it is easy to see that
this extensive limestone stratum over
the Mississippi valley Implies in early
geological ages an equally extensive
expanse of ocean, which was slowly
filling up with the sediment in some
places, but with sea shells In others.
The amount of limestone in the
world Is enormous, belnK sufficient to
make a Btratum hundreds of feet thick
over almost tho whole habitable world.
In this there Ib brought to light a
method of nature to clear the atmos
phere ot Impurities which Is very in
teresting. Lime Itself, ns a mineral. Is
a very different substance from the
llmestono with which wo nre familiar.
Limestone, as we onllnarly know It,
Is a carbonate of lime; that Is, an ele-
Among the limestones of great In
terest are the various forms of mar
ble which have been sought for the
world over for their beauty of color
and their fineness of texture. These
marbles mostly belong to the very
oldest geological formations, and ap
pear in close proximity to granite
rocks, where they have evidently been
subjected to heat and great pressure,
as they were burled deeply in the
earth and transformed or metamor
phosed into their present shape. The
usual color of marble Is white, but
they are often variegated with almost
every beautiful color derived from
mineral ingredients, especially Iron
and copper, giving them a red or
green or yellow cast.
There are also extensive deposits
of lime which are not dependent upon
the nction of animal life, but are
chemically deposited, especially in the
viciulty of springs whoso water Is
overcharged with carbonate of lime In
solution. As this water trickles down
from the roofs of caverns and falls
upon the bottom, the evaporation
leaves a certain amount, which ar
ranges itself in the form of stalactites
at the top and stalagmites at tho bot
tom of the cavern, the material being
arranged in layers, which are often
somewhat variegated in color and
form objects of great beauty. The
more extensive deposits are formed In
connection with warm springs in the
volcanic regions, making what Is
called travertine, which Is much
sought lifter ns an- ornamental stone.
