EARTH HAS MENINGITIS
GEOLOGIST SAYS EARTH'S BACK
BONE IS OCT OF
Washington, Aug. 23. Meningitis
1 the disease affecting the backbone
of the American continent, according
to Dr. C. Wrllard Hayes of the geo
logical aurvey. That Mexico will be
the next country to be visited by a
selsmie disturbance Is his prediction.
In discussing this topic Dr. Hayes
"These mountains, or what is mis
takenly called the backbone of the
American continent, are among the
newest in the world. That is why
they are so high. They represent a
much more recent geological period
than do the Appalachians, although
it Is probable the Appalachians were
once as high as the Rockies.
"Earthquake are caused In two
very different ways. One I by vol
canic activity and the other Is by the
slipping of the earth's crust along
a fault line, readjusting it to the new
distribution of pressures."

Whllcthe revolutionary effort against

es, are dKftlng. The efforts to
effect an amalgamation has failed.

But there is positively no cause for
alarm. The movement ln Santa

It is trifling, and the bands in Pinar j
