WORK OF THE SEA WAVES.

Ever alnce the land and watrr were
formed upon the earth and eepsrated
by well-dafiaed boundaries ths config-
uration of continents and Islands baa
been constanly changing and shifting
by ths action of ths sea waves says
Llpplncott's. Whole Islands have been
cast ua violently out of the sea or
formed slowly but surely by tbs tides
and currents of ths centuries; conti-
nents have been cut tn halt and built

of the ocean and Its tributaries Is the
greatest and most Interesting. Through
the countless ages of the past this
mighty process has been graually evok-

swept Inland to engulf fertile farm re-
gions and even to submerge cities and
towns. Expensive works of man along
the coast have been crushed and
washed away aa though they were but
toys for a summer dsy's pleasure. The
visitors at the seashore In the sum-
mer days fe only the mild side of the
ocean'a life. The quiet lapping waves
the beautiful foam-crested surf break-
