regarding Florida geology:

from the book of nature, as well as

cerned in its source. A knowledge of
the 'geological formation of this pen peninsula

questions, as to where to locate wells
and what kind of water may be rea
sonably expected from them. Without
posing as a geologist, the writer will
attempt to impart .such information

subject as he has gained from some
study of the work and writings of men
who. are acknowledged authorities on
the geology of the state.

Florida peninsula Is but a sand drift
the accumulation of ages, that it Is
"sand all the way down," and that, by
some future and Inexplicable catac
lysm, it may meet the fate of tradi
tional Atalantls.
The. Florida peninsula rests upon a
foundation of limestone rock of un
known thickness, and at varying dis
tance beneath the surface, from a few
feet in some localities to several nun
dred feet In others. This limestone
extends upward to a crest or "back
bone" in the central part of the state.
It has a gradual slope to the west
coast, and a more abrupt decline to
the east coast. There is also a down
waTd inclination of Irregular depth
Geologists have determined that, In
portions of the peninsula, there are
two well defined strata of rock. The
foundation, and the greater body of
this rock Is known as Vicksburg lime
stone, because of Itr surface exposure
at Vicksburg. Miss.; and it is said to
come to the surface in Georgia. This
Vicksburg limestone lies beneath
Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and
Georgia, as well as Florida. Resting on
the Vicksburg : limestone are other
bodies of stone of a local character,
which are named accordingly. Thus
added layers of bodies of stone under
neath Ocala and -vicinity are known
as the Ocala limestone; other similar
formations are Tampa limestone and
Hawthorne stone. At intervals art

The 8tory and the Letter.
Imagine, if you please, the forest

of the lofty peaks of the great range.
A level stretch of grassy land where
a mountain brook joined the creek
was dotted with clumps of pines and
great boulders rolled down from the
everlasting hills half an acre of open
clearing. On the opposite side of the
brook the canon wall rose almost
sheer for perhaps fire hundred feet,
ending in jagged, needle-edged pin pinnacles

beautiful. A thousand feet above ran
the timber line, and four thousand
feet above that the crest of the great greatest

in the clear air and radiant sunshine
of Colorado, now stood dim and ghost ghostlike,
like, ghostlike, in the red reflection of a huge
campflre. It was the evening of the
first day In the wilderness.
For two days since leaving the
wagon, the Maltland party with its
long train of burros heavily packed,
its horsemen and the steady plodders
on foot, had advanced into unexplored
and almost inaccessible retreats of
the, mountains into the primitive in indeed!

pitched their tents and the perma permanent

was abundant, the water at hand was
as cold as ice, as clear as crystal and
as soft as milk. There was pas pasturage

The whole place was a little amphi?

could not help think with what
scorn and contempt her father would
have regarded the menu, how his gorge
would have risen hers, too, for that
matter had it been placed before
him on the. old colonial mahogany of
the dining-room in Philadelphia. But
up there in the wilds she had eaten
the coarse homely fare with the zest
and relish of the most seasoned ranger
of the hills. Anxious to be of service,
she had burned her hands and smoked
her hair and scorched her face by
usurping the functions of the young
ranchman who had been brought along
as cook, and had actually fried the
bacon herself! Imagine, a goddess
with a frying pan! The black thick
coffee and the condensed milk, drunk
from the granite vcarecup, had a more
delicious aroina and a more delight delightful

to accept as final his failure. Brad Brad-sbaw

chiefly by long green felt puttees
which swathed his huge calves and
excited curious inquiry and ribald
comment from the surprised denizens
of each mountain hamlet through
which they had passed, to all of which
Bradshaw remained serenely oblivious.
The young man, who does enter espe especially

of the church in his home in the
suburbs of Philadelphia. His piety
had been put to a severe strain in the

Unfortunately there was no good and
trained leader among them through
an unavoidable mistake, and the camp campers

burros on the trail. To Arthur Brad Bradshaw
shaw Bradshaw had been allotted the most ob obstinate,
stinate, obstinate, cross-grained and determined
of the unruly band, and old Kirkby
and George paid particular attention
to Instructing him in the gentle art
of manipulating him over the rocky

mountain trail.
"Wall," said Kirkby with his some somewhat

"that there burro's like a ship w'ich

Arthur faithfully followed direc directions,

brute's small but sharp pointed heels
on occasion. His efforts not" being
productive of much success, finally In
his despair he resorted to brute
strength; he would pick the little ani animal

man of powerful physique and swing
him around until his head pointed in
the right direction; then with a prayer
that the burro would keep it there for
a few rods anyway, he would set him
down and start him all over again.
The process oft repeated became mo monotonous

could. Kirkby. who rode one horse
and led two others, and therefore was
exempt from burro driving, observed
him with great interest. He and Brad Bradshaw

of the party.
At last Arthur's resistance, patience
and piety, strained to the breaking
point, gave way suddenly. Primitive

"I wouldn't do that," urged the old
man. "Here, you take the horses an

"Gladly," said Arthur. "I would
rather ride an elephant and drive a
herd of them than waste another min minute

The story was too good to keep,
and around the camp fire "that night

George, the cattle man, who cooked,

stock, enjoyed the episode uproarious uproariously,
ly, uproariously, and would fain have had the exact
language repeated to them, but here
Robert Maltland demurred, much to
Arthur's relief, for he was thoroughly
humiliated by the whole performance.
It was very pleasant lounging
around the camp fire and one good
story easily led to another.
"It was In these very mountains,'
said Robert Maltland, at last when his
turn came, "that there happened one
of the strangest and most terrible ad adventures

pretty much forgotten the lay of the

"It was four years an nine months
exactly, Bob," drawled old Kirkby,
who well knew what was coming.

"I knowed that there mule," said
Kirkby, "I'd sold it to a feller named
Newbold, that had come out yere an

young man from the east, not a bit of

"Well, I happened to be there, too,
you remember," continued Maltland,
"and they made up a party to go and
hunt up the man, thinking something
might have happened."
"You see," explained Kirkby, "we
was all mighty fond of Louise Rosser,
the hull camp was acting like a father
to her at the time, so long 's she
hadn't nobody else; we was all at the
weddin', too, some six months afore.
The gal married him on her o"tfn
hook, of course nobody makin' her,
but somehow sne didn't seem none
too happy, although Newbold, who
was a perfect gent, treated her white

"Him not thinkln there had been

"No, certainly not"
"Well, what happened, Uncle Bob?"
inquired Enid.
"Just you wait" said young Bob,
who had heard the story- "This is
an awful good story, Cousin Enid."
"I can't wait much longer," returned
the girl. "Please go on."
"Two days after we left the -omp,
we came across an awful figure,
ragged, blood stained, wasted to a
skeleton, starved"
"I have seed men In extreme cases

"Nor I," continued Maltland.
"WTas it Newbold?" asked Enid.
"And what had happened to him?"

woods and mountains were full of
them then and there are some of them
left now I guess."
The two little girls crept closer to
their big cousin, each casting anxious
glances beyond the fire light

"Yes," said Enid, "but I think the

As the party broke up, old Kirkby
rose slowly to his feet; he looked
meaningly toward the young woman,
upon whom the spell of the tragedy
still lingered, he nodded toward the
young brook, and then repeated his
speaking glance at her. His meaning
was patent, although no one else had
seen the covert Invitation.

"I don't understand."
These'll explain," said Kirkby. He
drew out from his rough hunting coat
a package of soiled letters; they were
carefully enclosed in an oil skin and
tied with a faded ribbon. "You see,"
he continued, holding them in his
hand yet carefully concealing them
from the people at the fire. "W'en

"But why?"
"I want you to know the hull story."
"But why, again?"
"I rather guess them letters'll tell,"
answered the old man evasively, "an

"WTiat do you mean?" asked the girl
curiously, thrilling to the solemnity : of
