1 jPV'vrfflS i'" 1 rt fs i- V-, If NEW DISTRICT MAP PREPARED BY D. mLLABD, OF cl Mnch Information of the Geology of a Large Part of TheState. A new folio (No. 168) in the geologic atlas of the United States has Just been published bjr the United States geological surrey, the author being Daniel E. Willard, of the North Dakota Agricultural College faculty.

The area covered is known as the Jamestown-Tower district and lies hi the southwestern part of North Dakota, between 97:30 and 99 west longitude and parallels 46:30 and. 47 north latitude, the total area being about 2,460 square miles. It embraces the territory from Buflalo on the east to Windsor, west of Japiestown, on the west, he northern boundary of the area is about five miles north of the main line of the Northern Pacific railway and the southern boundary extends about five miles north of Lisbon and ten miles north of LaMoure and Edgeley. It embraces the three areas known as the Tower, Eckelson and Jamestown quadrangles, each of these quadrangles representing one-fourth of a square degree of the earth's surface. This district is in the great plains province, its surface being a gently undulating plain, in places nearly, flat, that lies at elevations, of about 1,000 to 1,500 feet above sea level.

The greater part of the area has no surface drainage whatever, the precipitation being absorbed or evaporated. The continental watershed between the Hudson Bay drainage basin and that of the Gulf of Mexico grosses the area. The undrained i character of the glaciated praties and the delicate dalance between the drainage systems that do exist are illustrated by this divide. Although the Sheyenne and James rivers, the two principal streams of this area, flow in nearly parallel courses for 180 miles and the relief of the land between their valleys is generally not more than twenty feet, the Sheyenne ultimately discharges into Hudson bay and the JameB into the gulf. The drainage area of the Sheyenne covers about 10,000 Bquare mileB, yet the volume of water 'discharged into Red river is estimated to be less than, that which flows through Valley City, nearly 160 miles upstream.

The loss is due to evaporation and absorption as the stream meanders sluggishly over, its valley. This area was affected by the con-tinental glaciation and its surface is thickly covered by glacial drift. The description of the distribution of glacial material and the history of the events of glacial time make up a large part of the text of the folio, which is consequently of great inter- est to all students of glaclology. The rocks underlying the drift are shales and the widespread water-bearing formation known to geologists as the Dakota sandstone. fro.m 40 to 250 feet deep form one of the principal sources of water supply.

They derive their water from 2 ''rain that penetrates the earth at vfVsome but in general it is Pi'suitable for domestic and farm purX. The mast important resource of this area is underground water The surface water is in general either unfit for domestic use or too scanty in amount, but underground water is abundant and is reached by many wells of different types. Shallow dug swells from six to twenty-four feet deep have been put down in moBt portions of' the district and yield water in ample amount, but of verying quality-ln some placeB unusually pure, In others very inferior.

Ezra Kendall, with his own peculiar sky-scraper hat and quaint style of humor Is coming to town in an upto-date revival of Herbert Hall Winslow's "The Vinegar Buyer" and will be seen at the Jamestown opera house on Friday evening, Nov. 12.

Mr. Kendall Is well-known to theater goers of this country. His humor has spread itself across the written pages of numerous little, books and numberless newspaper articles, and" his smileb have reached acrosB. the footlight in a droll way and have lightened the minds of many people. As a dlspeller of the "blues" of everyday life, Kendall to in a class by himself.

The play is an amusing bit of drollery, whose humor has pungent flavor of hard cider and it belongs to the truly "rural" plays like "David Harum," where interest centers in one figure rather than In the "plot." In this case it is the village Joe Miller, whose stories keep the audience in a gale of laughter. The plot tells the story Of a blind widow named Mrs. Arlington, who with1 her beautiful daughter, Mildred have come to stay at the local sanitarium. Hlldred is loved by two young men and hence the plot THE WEATHER. Rain turning to snow flurries tonight: Thursday partly cloudy and COlder.

The consulate is the only building now holding out against them and their entire force has been concentrated about the refuge of the foreign residents. The authorities say the reinforcements sent to the relief of Ardebil should reach there shortly. NECK BROKEN IN HORSE RACE Minnesota Farmer Dies When Thrown From Rig. Rochester, Nov.
