tires, or super structures for the railway,
the citv, or the common house. The farm
ers of Knnsas and Arkansas haul the Ioomj
fragments many miles, indicating the
uses as anuve described The material is
homogeneous throughout, leading to the
theory that it is the result of one, instead
of a series of hot spring", who.-e periodic
overflow ha, during long ages, deposited
these alkali rocks.
The central chimney or tube through
which the water once holding these rocks
in solution wero conveyed will probably
be fouud from one to seven miles south
of the northern curvatiou of the bluff
To many of my readers this will appear
as an asxumptinn or "begging the ques
tion " that this or the foregoing instance.-
are the result of geyets or hot springs.
But wo cau examine one ot these springs
in actual operation near Cawkcr City, in
Mitchell count, Kansas, thirty miles
south of the Nebraska line, This noted
spring is called
MANITOU, OR GREAT SPIRIT SPRINGS,
so namedby the Indiaus, who from time
immemorial have here held their meet
ings with song and such ether incantations
as i elate to their "big medicine" business.
It is a huge stone basin near five hundred
feet across the top. In the centre is a
ircular pond of warm water, which pours
over the rim of the-basin and escapes to
the Solomon river near by. The water is
alkaline, salt being predominant. At
tempts to find the depth of this boiling
sprinz have not been successful. It prob
ablv extends downward several thousand
feet, and communicates by cleft or fissure
with the thermal waters, warmed by the
interior heat of the earth.
The great mass of rock enclosing these
briny waters is about seventy feet ib.ive
the Solomon river. 1: appears to bo the
summit of a chimney built up from un
known depths by depoi s from the over
flow of this alkaline spring. The roe is
a concrete of lime, magnesia, silica and
potassa, which are all soluble in hot water,
and which will precipitate on cooling
Fit ages these waters baturated with the
above utatertals, have risen by subterra
nean force, and deposited layer after later
of this composite rock, thus silently build
ing thee huge walls to their present
height, when the lorce gradually ceased,
and the work is now nearly stopped.
