Mack, Chatham Center. Dear Sir:- Yours in the Courier in reference to the anonymous commun ­ ication relative to that speculative hole to the center of the earth was noted with interest; I\o that com ­ munication was duly signed by me hut the signature was omitted by the compositor, hence the assump ­ tion that it was anonymous. Now in assuming that possibly matter at the earth ’ s center is a solid, I merely stated it as a theory, not that I believe it to be so. 1 do not wish to appear as one who is continually looking for faults in another, but in' the interest of science -there is no- better way of ad­ vancing it than by the interchange of ideas; lienee I am writing you per ­ sonally instead of through the me ­ dium of the Courier. The first ar ­ ticle in reference to China being be ­ neath our feet, I wrote to the paper us I wished to correct in the minds of people, this erronious idea so far as possible. In reference to the molten sea of lava which many believe to exist within the earth, you state that the gasses formed would counterbalance the force of gravity by their action on the concave surface of the earth's crust; now that this pressure would go far toward sustaining the earth ’ s crust is evident, but at the. same time this pressure must be taken up and conveyed through the mass of matter to the opposite sine of the earth, hence the ; .assure at the earth's center must, be equal to that at the contract with tire crust plus the added weight of matter between that point and the earth ’ s center. Am I not right in this statement? Your illustration of the action in the teakettle thereby the water is forced out is to the poinr, as it shows that tlie pressure on fluids ia con ­ tinued throughout the mass. I trust you will accpct thisi, not as a criticism on your able article, but as advancing my idea of the matter in question. I trust you will long continue to write tnose most interesting articles as there is much that should be better understood by the public generally, the motions of the moon, earth and planets, their influence on our seasons, and many other things that are of almost every day occurrences, hut of which the public generally ava grossly ingnor- unt.

As a great logician remarked, “ In matters about which nobody knows anything, anybody has the .right to guess. ” So long as no one knows Ij j anything positive about the earths A 1 interior condition, each and all may assume that which the evidence seems to imply. Theoretically, and as Mr. Harvey assumes, the pressure from the col ­ lective gases in the interior of the “ aith would he uniform at all points ■ I the interior surface of the earths rust, and this imifor:-.-. pressure v.oald, as 1 have assumed, counter ­ balance any weight imposed by circumambient strata. i Now it 1 am correct in the state- j aent that the interior pressure would I counter the weight- of the exterior crust, then the pressure which Mr. Harvey speaks of as “ plus ’ ’ would be nil, or at least its bearing could not edeet the density of the matter con ­ tained beneath its structure. 1 have assumed that the s structure o; tlie earth would go a long way n supporting the earth ’ s crust, as we note in t!A principle of the arch, and il Urns is true, the pres ­ sure would be entirely relieved just as we see in tlie shell of an egg. If we make a small hole in each end of an egg, we may blow its en ­ tire contents out leaving nothing but the shell, and this will be so well sup ­ ported that if taken in tiie hand, it will require considerable pressure to crush it. The eai th ’ s crust has often been ccmpam! to the shell of an egg. and ..hen wc consider the formation of the solid roc): extending many miles below the surface, wo must see that the analogy is consistent. The size of the earth would have but little bearing so long as we have sufficient rock structure to support our arch. The analogy would be like that between the egg of a robin and an ostrich. Tlie shell would be in pro ­ portion to the size of the egg. While i(t is doubtless true that there is a mean average pressure against all parts of the earth ’ s crust, this does not argue that trie re may not lie local conditions there creat ­ ing great storms with upheavals just as we have local storms in the ex ­ ternal atmosphere that cause won ­ derful destruction ? Even in recent times with the great thickness of the earth ’ s crust, we know that there are internal forces at work that lift and elevate the rock formation to an extent that is truly surprising. So recent as September 1899, a great earthquake at Yakutat Bay/Al ­ aska, lifted the sea coast for a dis ­ tance of more than a hundred miles. A few years later Prof, R. S. Tarr of Cornell University, and Mr. Law ­ rence Martin of the National Geogra­ phical Society, found barnacles still THE BEDROOM — Tliis double Bed; Simmons Spring and Mattress ; Dresser ; Chifferobe; Dressing Table and Chair, not shown, complete this very attractive Suite in combi ­ nation mahogany.
