The Hudson Ulver.
The Hudson River, as we call it,
along the western shore of the is
land of Manhattan, is now a ma
jestic estuary rather than a river,
and is deep enough for all the uses
of great ships. But its present
bottom is formed s of the rock
wreckage of an earlier day, which
has largely filled up a chasm once
several hundred feet deep, through
which the old liver ran.
So colossal was the sheet of ice
which came sweeping down from
the northwest over the top of the
Palisades in the ice age that this
ancient chasm of the Hudson Riv
er a veritable canon once
changed its course no whit; for
the direction of the. grooves and
scratches seen everywhere on the
exposed surface of the Palisades,
and pointing obliquely across the
river's course, run in the same di
rection as do those on the rocks
over which the city stands.
It not infrequently happens that
steamers and ships bound for New
York, when not quite certain of
their whereabouts as they approach
the coast, are compelled to seek
what help they can by consulting
the nearest land, which, under
these renditions, is the sea bottom.
The sea bottom along ihe coast

place on which New York stands
wast it is believed, once much
higher than it ia now, and was
separated from the Noith Atlant
ic border by some eighty or ninety
miles of, low seacoast land, now
submerged, and forming this great
continental plateau. Indeed, the
New Jersey and adjacent coast is
still einkine at the rate of a few
inches in a century.
For us t-day the Hudson River
ends southward where it enters
New York Harbor. But a chan
nel, starting ten miles southeast of
Bandy Hook, and in a general way
continuing the line of the Hudson
runs across the submerged con
tinental plateau, where finally, af
ter widening and deepening to form
a tremendous submarine chasm, it
abruptly ends where the plateau
falls off into the deep sea.
This chasm near the end of the
submerged channel is, if we may
believe the story of the plummet,
twenty-five miles long, a mile and
a quarter wide, and in places two
thousand feet in vortical depth be

selves far beneath the ocean's sur

call the Hudson Rivor, alonjj which
a part of the melting glacier sent
its flood during and at the cbse of
the Age of Ice.
And so at last rounded and

once sharp crags towered aloft;

The State of North Carolina
seems to be thoroughly alive to
the subject of good roads, ae is
shown by the convention recently
held in Charlotte. No less than
twenty-seven of the principal cpun-
ties were represented by delega
tions, and the discussions were
earnest and to the point. An in
teresting feature was the compari
son of the cost of ancient and
modern road-making, with the
figures in favor of the latter moile.
A number of roads have been re
built by convict labor in the vicin
ity of Charlotte, and the menders
of tho convention who drove over
them found them as level and as
firmly surfaced as city streets. It
was shown that tho convicts could
be provided at an expense of twenty-one
cents per day, which paid
for the guards, for board, cloth
ing, shelter and medical attend
ance. Tho actual cost of titty con
victs working on the roads for
thirty days was $315, while for or
dinary labor the same number of
men would require $975 in wagso
at least, making a difference of

Not half enough has ever been
written or said in praise of grand

babies comes along, their eyes
brightening with bliss of an extra
joyous motherhood and their arms
even more ready than in the daya

human burden, their hands more
willing to bind up briar-scratehed
tinkers and their lips more anxious
to kiss away the tars and smooth
out the frowns.
It is the memory of mistakes in
their own child-raNmg that makes
them doubly tender with the little
one who now lisps tleir name? It
is because the little child that nes
tles in their arms to-day brings
Uack in memory those days when
another baby lay then a baby
who to-day answers b the name of

problem of the great love that
causes them to forget the weight
of their years and makes them

and profit by it. What father ami
