The Earth in the Year 2,000,000
No particle of sand whiclr goes Into
tin.- sea evi r comes back again. Yet
millions of particles of sand leave the
surface of the earth every second, and
are carried suspended in the waters of
more than so,ooo rivers, oat into the
ocean. There are more than too
streams classed as rivers in the State
of Louisiana alone. 'Each one of these
has several hundred creeks, brooks
And spring branches tributary to it,
Each brook or spring branch, with
Its countless rivulets, clasps the hill
sides and drags down the surfaces
thereof—down into the brooks—down
into the rivers—down into old ocean,
And there the atoms rest patiently;
each atom waiting for others now
resting in green fields, but soon to
join the comrade gone before.
To-day an atom forms part of a
farm in Iowa or Missouri, to morrow,
it is on its way to the gulf. This pro
cess has been going on since the be
ginning of time—since “the earth was
without form, and void;*' the pri
meval rocks [have been disintegrated
and spread abroad in fertile fields, to
be slowly sifted out and washed into
the ocean; perhaps again to be up
heaved and formed into islands and
continents—abiding places for coming
generations. All life, animate and
inanimate, is-simply an illustration of
this grinding down process; of the
Master rubbing down the bumps to fill
up the hollows.
The finaboutcome, alter millions of
years of this smoothing down process
on the surface of the globe, Will make
the earth partake of the nature of a
. huge billiard ball sailing through the
sky—devoid ol hills or valleys, moun
tains or plains.
Learn a Trade.
A good trade is something which
bank failures or commercial panics do
It is a passport to all countries and
Something which can be carried in
our beads and hands.
A demand note which passes cur
The one thing that cannot be learn
ed in an academy or college.
A strong crutch on which to lean.
The liiend of our youth who will not
desert us in our old age or affliction.
The only language understood by
the people ot all races and climes.
Beyond the possibility of decline at
;tnv- time—years enhance its value.
The only property which cannot be
mortgaged or sold.
It is a calling which can be declined
or taken up at pleasure
Something about which neither
friends nor kindred can quarrel.—Na'
tional Printer and Publisher.
