The Black sea, which In some parts
has a depth o f more than 0.500 feet,
Is polsoued by sulphureted hydrogen
wherever the water Is deeper than
1,200 feet. This accounts for the curi­
ous fact thnt there Is no organic life
below that depth, excepting perhaps
some bacteria of very low order. Im­
pregnated with sulphur.
The causes for this phenomenon are
explained by the quick outflow o f the
fresh water through the Bosporus,
while salt water coming from the
Mediterranean enters through a deeper
current Into the depths of the Black
sea. The waters on the surface are.
therefore, controlled absolutely by
horizontal currents o f considerable
force, and Tcrtlcal currents which
might carry the noxious gases from
, the bottom to the surface and fresh
oxygen from the surface to the bottom
are hardly ever noticeable.
The water at great depths is so satu­
rated with sulphuric gas by the dis­
integration o f organic matter sinking
to the bottom by reason o f its weight
that no fish or other living being which
needs oxygen for Its organic system
can exist l>eyoiid a stated depth.—Lon­

Owing to the fact that the
Press was somewhat shorthand
ed this week, the office devil
tried out his hand on the réper­
toriai staff, to which may be as­
cribed the added vigor or tone
imparted to any o f the various
departments o f this issue.
Every once in a while one o f
our lucal preachers preaches a
Bermon on the prodigal son. Un­
fortunately a good many people
here don’ t understand that it ap­
plies to them. They say, “ We
never went away and spent our
money in riotous livin g—not

away is not much different— It
is lost to them and this town.
The man who spends his money
away from home is a prodigal,
whether he goes away with it or
not. He also is a prodigal son.
Likewise, someone ought to fall
on his neck, also.
High prices for decidiou9 fruits

bined to make prospects exceed­

to be shipped from the state.
