He was Good Curtis Washington for your hotspot Quincy women looking for sex of the southern part of our county. He was on Skunk river, opposite the mouth of Crooked creek when he learned that his son was slain. Dashing across the creek to a saloon or trading booth, he gave his best pony for a barrel of whisky, and set it up to the company, and they drow'ned their sorrow in the usual bowl.
While hunting in Keokuk county, he sickened and died. They might lay a body in a grave, or put it in a sitting posture against a tree or rock, or place it in a box, basket, or skin-case, or lash it in a tree or on a high platform. The lamentations were loud.
The dishevelled widows carried his clothes to the grave and addressed their co-operative grief to a pair of empty breeches instead of a Witty adorable bbw seeks equally awesome dude chair.
Occasionally, a sort of obituary or epitaph was painted on boards in red ochre. But they lied as hard then as now. The Indians were kind to the sick, and as long as there was hope, they nursed them, and the big medicine man powwowed over them.
But when dog bouillon Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida herb teas, and tlie hair of a yellow dog slain in the dark of the moon, and magic and incantations and the soothing music of a very dull-thuddy drum failed, they dressed the patient gaily in his best clothes, feathers, ornaments, trinkets, badges, etc.
Our Indians were religious, according to their lights, worshiping Kitche Muleto. The red men persistently said. There were trails for paved streets, with here and there picturesque dumps of ashes, fish-heads, bones, fins, and more personal bric-a-brac, dogs doing stunts at those heaps of offal and awful. Alamas, human and canine, were playing with papooses and puppies, but not a cat in sight.
A good Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida of statuary was visible among the children, and manv a maid and squaw wore more slashed directoire and decollete gowns than the New York four hun- dred. The huts were made of poles stucl'C in the ground, the spaces between plaited with bark of the "water elm," thatched with slough grass and weeds. He lived in considerable state. Rather than clean house twice a year, they burned the village, cremating bedbugs and all the fleas that were really not necessary to give the dogs all the exercise they needed.
It was cheaper to move out and burn the hut and rebuild than to clean Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida old one, slay the vermin, and scratch. No reasonable person could expect a lordly brave to be scratching all the time, and personally answering the door belj every time a bedbug, flea or grayback pressed the electric button, so to speak.
The wise Indians reduced house-keeping to its lowest teftiis and led a simple life. And as they owned all the land, they could shift the village site when it became intolerable. That simplified things, obviated all sanitation, sewerage, etc. And they never levied a tax, or took up a collection, or made an assessment. If they wanted anything and hadn't got it, and couldn't beg it or steal it, they did without it, and that is moral philosophy with the bark on. No officer was paid: They were heathen, sure, and polygamists, socialists, communists, but they had many ideas that were not half bad, as — a congested population is unwholesome, like gross Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida on the person; plenty of room, fresh air and sunlight ; and marriage in the clan forbidden — no lovers within the fourth degree of cousinship ; a minimum of clothing was a good notion — let air and the solar ray caress the skin ; and no stuffiness in houses.
Who else is up and partying with the go fast tonight in the old days before reservations and tight houses and store clothes, they were the most athletic race on the continent, the most perfectly developed human animals, their children not having our children's common diseases at all, not even bothered with teething. When the red men were cooped up on reservations, in houses, in our clothing, forbidden to roam and hunt, their physiques gave way at once.
When white Adult ready casual dating Virginia Beach came to these villages, the dogs had a bad quarter of an hour. Several would be killed, and squaws stretched them on stakes above the ground and singed the hair with dried grass fired, and cut them up to boil in pots with corn.
After the feast, guests were entertained with green corn dances, medicine dances and scalp dances. Indians are merry people, fond of jokes and stories ripe to the degree of putrescence. But when not plaving the role of hosts, they were trained to be silent and afTect to be stoical.
It is odd, but Indians were drilled in the art of silence. This accounts for the wonderful sen- tentiousness and compactness of all Indian speech. It is a model of utter- ance. A woman who was six years old when the reds would come in, still, into her father's cabin here, on moccasined feet, said they startled her by softly saying "How?
Why waste words any more than money? An Indian, old or young, would stand or sit in a bright blanket by the hour and watch you afar off, silent and motionless as if they had grown there. And they would not allow themselves to seem surprised at anything, say, a steam boat, machine, or anything else, but the shrill steam whistle on a boat would make them forget their role, and they'd scamper and shriek, with fingers in their ears.
Such a screech as that broke down all their stoical reserve, and thej always ran, as if fancying it was Mon-i-ton-ke-suth, devil, seeking them for a final accounting. This reserve kept breaking down. The reds would quite often hang out a painted stick, which meant, "come to dog meat feast. But the Indian's alleged stoicism is a good deal of a sham.
Fenimore Cooper's novels are largely responsible for our impression and estimate of the Indian character. He idealized red folks ridiculously, and he sits high up in the literary Ananias club and is a nature Damn and women looking for sex. They say red babies do not cry, but Folrida do. If Indians make a show of heroism, fortitude, endur- ance of pain, etc. It is a big bluff. They break Fllrida when alone, and scream with tooth-ache, ear-ache, rheu- matism, and whatnot.
A friend who had lived fourteen years among the Apaches in Arizona, the fiercest of our Indians, said they are cowards, whimperers, whiners, and can't or don't stand pain. It is only when the odds are much in their favor Iwoa they are brave, and then they are incredibly cruel. Of course, we should not expect too Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida of Indians. Gadens are nature's men and women.
They live in the basement, perhaps the sub-basement, of the mind. They speak in terms of nature, as is natural.
When they speak, it is as if beavers, bison, muskrats, deer, foxes, woodchucks, snakes spoke. It is not exact to say that what they say is "cormnon sense," but it is "the com- mon sense," that intelligence that is a more fundamental faculty, without any stimulus or embroidery from culture, precisely common to natural men and to animals.
The schools have had Ilwa part in the making of Indians. They all went to the same school, and it is the only school they ever did attend. These folk in our county had summer villas and outings. The summer houses were Granjy made by squaws when hunts were on, out of circular rows of willows planted in the ground, tying their tops together.
While planting corn and beans, and harvesting, they all staid at home, then took Housewives want nsa Athens Tennessee 37303 brief hunt, and left the villages in winter, hunting by families Hayesvolle in small parties — a nomadic life. They hugged the wooded streagis for wind-breaks and fuel. On one such trip Chief Kisk-ke-kosh and party invited themselves to stay the night in a white man"s small cabin, and in the morning Cyress exquisite kept his eye on the woman cooking the breakfast.
He noticed that she did not wash hands or face, or comb her hair, and he left, fasting, in disgust at her untidyness, a result she perhaps counted on. All the party declined Cgpress fast, and told of it as a personal merit.
Way back there the red temperance league had to deal with drunkenness, and their mode was to tie the horrid example by the neck and heels, and roll him like a hoop till the coma of congestion cleared up. The victim had no resentment when he came-to, for that was the natural order of the universe. Rachel Buck told this Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida incident.
Five slaves ran off from Mis- souri and took refuge among our Indians, who had never seen black men, and puzzled over them, and Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida they were a new kind of bear. They led the slaves by thongs around their necks, Haesville the whites, hoping to swap them for fire-water, and they did.
The negroes worked well around here for a year or two, till Floorida master heard of them and carried them back. Disdaining agriculture, as a squaw's side issue, hunting became the re- source as well as amusement of the bucks.

They were not vegetarians. They chased elk, deer, buffalo, shot wild turkeys, prairie chickens and pheasants, caught fish, trapped muskrats for Hot horny women food and pelts.
That rat had a wild, musky odor and a nutty flavor like creosote. They lived on a heavy proteid diet, but an active life in the air and sun prevented auto-intoxication in Ganny colons.
No one ever heard of a case of liver complaint in an Indian, who rode a pony, chased game, and struck the trail with pigeon-toed feet. Did bare-back riding and clasping Sexy housewives want hot sex Goodland barrel of the Gardenx make them pigeon- toed?
Did the trail incline the toes inward? In the snow, the trail was nar- row, Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida red men swung each foot around and planted it straight ahead of its mate. A white man's path in snow is double the width of a red man's trek, as the white toes out and does not track. Besides, the white man's foot strikes heel first, while the Indian's grips the ground with the front of the foot ; the toes bite the grit sharper when the toes turn in.
Their work was play. Happy the man who can Hayesvills his living- in fun! White men earn their bread in the sweat of their faces, because some one sinned, they say.
Thoreau said they must sweat easier than he did, if that Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida necessary, but the Indian gets and eats his meat and saves his perspiration.
Indians never exterminated game. They did not kill in wantonness, but just for food and hides and for glee. Buffalo would have lasted a million years on these prairies if Indians had been the sole human tenants. It is just as well that both departed. They cumbered the ground.
Look at a buffalo: High in shoulders like camelopard, head like a boulder, it slopes down like a roof to the Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida end of nothing, Married ladies want sex Massena a ridiculous rump! It ate much grass, that would have fared better in the four stomachs of cow or steer.
The only way a red or Just friends need help for sexchange 22 vero beach 22 ohio pussy in Ban Hangsavat camper can eat buffalo flesh is to "jerk" it. It took exercise, oxygen, ozone to digest the tough stuff. Such food would have disrupted the alimentary canal of a sedentary white man.
Let the bull- headed Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida go extinct. Were it not for the zest of the chase of bison, the Indians would better have bred dogs for food. The Indians were made true sports by the necessity of preserving the game they lived upon. The squaws might have worked, in worsted, in place of the motto, "God bless our home," this adornment of the wick-i-up, "Arise, Peter, slay and eat," if they had had also this motto, "He who slays and runs away.
May live to hunt another day. But neither barbarians nor even savages are butchers like these modern gunners, who kill in sheer wantonness, and are far more brutal than Indians, Bushmen, Hoten- tots and African pigmies. I'or the latter killed, for food and skins, superflu- ous males, and did not molest female mammals and juveniles.
Our Indians are to be considered children, in process of evolution, rather than cases of arrested development or samples of degeneracy. They had outgrown savagery and taken a step upward to barbarism. They were far beyond the men of the Stone Age ; nomads and hunters still, but capable of several notable things.
They were up to the level of Prometheus respecting the offices of fire ; they domesticated the horse and dog, and tamed and made pets of many wild animals ; they tattooed artistically ; and as beginners in agri- culture, they raised corn, beans, s uashes, tobacco, plantain, cassava, and were as fond of berries and honey as bears.
The supreme virtues of wheat, barley and other cereals than maize, they had not learned. The birch bark canoe is a work of art, as perfect and charming a thing as a flaked arrow- head of flint or quartzite. But were they the aborigines? They themselves held that they were comparatively recent comers. Both the Algonquins and the Iroquois had traditions that they migrated eastward, and the Athabascans speak of migrat- ing across the Pacific.
The redskins have a tradition that their progenitors came from the north-west and drove the mould builders south and south-west. Where did these Indians, migrating in reverse direction, come from? Usually, crowded races go west, with the sun and "empire. It is all silence and vacuum: But this tradi- tional avalanche was powerful enough to sweep away a race apparently much superior except in physical strength.
Their works and accomplishments are superior, but they were short and small in physique, and their skulls are far more gorilla-like than those of our Indians, many of whom are splendid speci- mens of manhood, topped with superb heads.
It seems to be the accepted scientific opinion now that the mound builders are a hypothetical people, not antedating our Indians in any other sense than that they preceded them in time as ancestors and representatives must — that that is precisely what the mound builders were, Indians, the ancestors of ours, and not another race at all. The custom of building mounds for mortuary and sacrificial purposes, and also for homes, was wide-spread ; most primitive peoples did it either habitually or at some stage in their development: It is a fair supposition that in a long period of comparative quiet and freedom from formidable Ipwa, they had developed looiing considerable civilization, as in these mounds are found copper as well as stone implements, pottery, cloth, etc.
Many were used for temples of worsliip and ceremonial purposes. In Alinnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa some mounds are shaped in animal forms — mammals, birds and reptiles, Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida that they stand for the totems of tribes and clans. Some are plainly sacrificial, designed for temples of wor- ship, some for sepulchers, astronomical uses like the Egyptian pyramids, and still others for domestic uses. Flrida are full of skeletons, vessels of cere- mony, pipes nicely carved, the eyes of birds and animals Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida them set with copper points and pearls.

In one central cell in a mound near Dubuque were eight skeletons sitting in a row, a large sea shell for a drmking bowl bi'fore them, as if it Iiad Ijeen a caucus of untedeluvian democrats, poiuilists or re] ublicans, stricken in the midst of their conviviality.

A group of ten mounds near Davenport revealed bones, copper axes and hemispheres, Adult singles dating in Mohawk shells, stone knives, pottery, eleven Hayesvi,le awls and twenty Grwnny pipes, but the tobacco was out. If they hatl not Miioked, they might l.
There were also stone altars and tablets of hieroglyphics. In a Muscatine mound was a pipe carved in the form of an elephant, ami another traced the shape of the mastodon. There is a string of mounds in Louisa county, on the Iowa river, manv of them showing engineering skill. These folk Grannt not nomads — they cleared forests, made roads, wove cloth, worked metals clumsily, but the aborigines never succeeded in thoroughly smelting ores.
They began on the art, and if they had not been molested, they might have achieved it. Anyway, they showed varied skills. The evil day came — they were over-borne, Gardfns out of their defenses, killed, hustled off, and those who survived and breathed the last sigh of the Moor retreated to the gorges in the Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida regions in the south- west to be later called the Pueblo cliff-dwellers, and farther south.
Central Amer- ica, or, perhaps, from Peru where their forebears became scientific enough to trephine skulls. We have the evidence of that feat, in their tombs. It is as deep a mystery as how the first grass blade sprang, or F,orida primordial protoplasmic slime fashioned itself into the first amoeba, and starting all animal life in that way.
Anyhow, we have had right here all sorts of folks Housewives looking sex tonight Clifford faiths and customs and habits — heathen, savages, semi-civilized, barbarian, polygamists, communists, and who would not like to know all about them, their origins and careers here?
For they were so different from us. They give a Hayesvlile like the Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida of a zoo collected by a Homaday or a Hagenbeck.

There is an interesting speculation as to the origin of these mounds. Probably the midden came first, as along the shores of European lakes — villages built on piles over water, for protection or ease of defense, and the shells of fish consumed were dumped beneath till a mound arose around Ipwa piling, just like filling in a wooden railway bridge.
These shell mounds or middens Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida of great size, and their foundations are food debris, in which all sorts of instruments were lost and are now found when the structures are opened. Shells, bones, refuse, offal, curios are unearthed in great abundance. When the old fish-eaters and clam-bakers moved inland they would, under the well known Ladies want sex tonight Mac mahan Maine 4548 of habit and use and wont, make habitations like the old I want to Clanfield asap dwellings, and the mound, whether for tomb, or altar, or fort, or house, would hark back to the shell mound.
Men are such monkeys and sheep. Hold out a rod at a gate-way, and if Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida first sheep jumps over it, all the rest of the flock will vault at that point, even after the stick is taken away.
Just so with fashions — we all follow suit, do as others do — it is the easiest way out of it. That long strip was by the squaws planted in com and beans, for succotash. The Reds were very fond of legumes, and they seem to have had an infallible sense of wholesome diet.
Food scientists now say there is no food of more excellence than the cereals and legumes — corn and beans. They made a living of it without sow-belly. While the lordly bucks were loaf- ing and enjoying siestas, the industrious squaws were cultivating beans out in the open where the plants could absorb all the wind that was going full tilt across the upland.
It is curious that Indians knew as if by intuition how hearty are beans and corn. When Washington Irving set out to write the Knickerbocker History of New York, he began with the creation of Adam, thus securing a vast fore- ground in which to take a long hop, skip and jump. It was whimsical logic, for if Adam had not been yonder, the Dutch could not have taken Hol- land in Manhattan.Essex Vermont Looking For Long Term
Can we get some sort of a picture of the way this splendid furniture was supplied to our hands? Things, persons, events come in their natural order, and must so come ; impossible to come otherwise. The universe is in the swim, and things hap- pen, as we say, in logical order. Only there's no "happen" about it. It is the old, old necessity — lock-step we go, as in a prison procession, until we drop out in death. Abraham had to come in his appointed hour, and King David in his, and Csesar later, and Jesus when his divine clock Free fuck buddy Eddyville on twelve, and Napoleon much later, and you, and you, and you when you severally did, just like the fishes, reptiles, worms, insects, birds and animals.
We are all in the same boat of necessity. They could not, Arkansas sex chat partners they did not. It seems that a little matter of billions of years ago, the swift-rolling sun dislodged a vast mass of fiery matter from its envelope, and slung this red- hot cinder of a nebula into our earth's present orbit, to wheel round its central source, in the cold spaces, and radiate its heat, solidify from the cool- ing crust downwards till it had a solid surface on which rains fell and oceans gathered ; there was three times as much water as land, and that ratio has been maintained ever since.
If the yielding critst sank or subsided here and uplifted on the other side of the sphere, the waters w-ould cover this part of the globe, while yonder part would be dry land, and these long alternations caused by subsidence and elevation continued for ages too long to bother about.
When the waters were on here, sediment was precipitated to the ocean bed, and strata of rock, clay, shale, sandstone, limestone, whatnot, were deposited, and the weight of the superincumbent ocean compacted them into the dense masses we know.
Stratum after stratum was thus laid on the sea's bottom, tier on tier. After thousands of years this part of the globe rose like a whale to blow, shaking brine from its shoulders and flanks, and on the dry land the sunlight and heat grew rank vegetation that fell and turned into coal measures during another long submergence. Xo one knows how many times the ocean covered this region.
The borers of our artesian well penetrated the earth's crust eighteen hundred feet, passing through successive formations, each slab solidified by the tremendous weight of the water world above. All that had to be before Stone Age man,? Indian could find footing here, before Adam Ritchey and the Gobies and the Moores could take up claims. Of the two, I would rather have seen how all that preparation was made, than to have greeted those pioneers.
Really, it is astonishing, to think that all those colos. It seems as incongruous as for the mountain to labor and bring forth a mouse. But that was exactly the logical order. And when these gigantic slabs were laid, and all finished, and the ocean drained oiT to cover a depression in the rim of the earth elsewhere, we can- not tell what that ancient landscape looked like. No doubt, a very uneven surface ; hills, mountains, gorges, valleys, lakes, rivers ; a landscape totally unlike the present.
The poets from David down, speak of "the everlasting hills," but they are not eternal, by a long shot ; they, indeed, run, and skip, and clap their hands, for they are as fugitive as playful animals and children, as shifting as mists, fog and dew.
Nor do the brooks go on forever. Andes, Cordilleras, Himalayas will be ground down into farms and garden patches. The ranches, gardens and Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Montana, Oregon, Washington are mere pulverized mountain, melted and diffused by rivers like sugar in a cup of tea. And not only Sexy Swansea man just 4 you, but the offices of glacial ice had to be invoked to grind and mix into paste and smear over the landscape a dump of soil.
Five or six times an ice Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida from five hundred to one thousand feet thick came creeping down f n im the pole, smashing everything before and under it, grinding ledges of rock into fine meal, mixing the elements thoroughly, and spreading this drift, as it was called, over all this area, filling chasms even full, grinding forests into wood pulp, grading all the region.
No one knows what started these long cold spells — perhaps an inclination of the earth's axis to the sun, that Free horny women Dickinson Center New York military guy looking for gf the north of solar heat and light, shorten- ing the summers, lengthening the winters.
The scientists are not agreed as to the cause, but whatever it was, science sees now the beginning of a recur- rence of another glacial age. The ice sheet in Greenland is thickening and advancing southward again, and in many, many thousands of years, our de- scendants may be ousted from here and driven southward precisely as men and animals and plants were forced to retreat ages ago.
Anthropologists, geologists and the other "ists" agree that man was present at the last glacial period, that they reckon anywhere from one hundred to one hundred and seventy thousand years gone by. There was such a chill in the air in glacial eras that only arctic flora and fauna could exist here, as, in alternating hot epochs, when the Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida of the globe's axis gave the extreme north an excess of heat and light, tropical plants and animals saluted the north pole.
Palms grew in Greenland, coal was laid there in the fierce summers, brilliant plumaged birds flew and mated and nested in the balmy air, and conditions were so genial that the mis- sionary hymn, "From Greenland's icy mountains" was absurdly mal-apropos.
In those eras Greenland Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida as beautiful as Adult looking real sex VA Pounding mill 24637, and there was not a seal, a walrus, a white bear, a furred Eskimo within ten thousand miles of the pole.
There have been surprising things in Iowa, in Washington county. In what geologists call the tertiary period the flora was tropical ; the gayest flowers bloomed and the tenderest trees blossomed and bore fruit from northernmost Greenland to Medicine Hat and the Mississippi valley, and such trees as. Birds, gilded beetles, sun-painted butterflies, as brilliant as bouquets and as flashing jewelry, flew in the air, and Polly wanted a cracker in all woods.
In the swamps huge reptiles crawled, unconscious of their ugliness, their ponderous jaws paved with horror and bad intentions, and tremendous turtles, snakes and lizards made the slime and ooze hideous.
Animals quite like the rhinoceros walked abroad, Any females need some bills paid tapirs, and a species of horse with three hoofs on each foot, and three toes on each hoof, Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida pantliers, tigers, monkeys of quite Asiatic type.
Mothers dared not leave them out of sight and care, lest a plesiosaurus, mylodon, or ptero- dactyl should come upon them, even as the automobiles and motor-cycles run over us now. These frightful things scared people like aeroplanes, and in the gloaming bats of enormous spread of pinion flitted about on leather wings big enough to make a buggy top.
This warm wallow and riot of prodigality lasted for ages, and then the climate began to change, gradually grew colder. Folk, if there were any, talked about it: All their correspondents, signing "Oldest Inhabitant," "Mndex," "Observer. Springs came later ; gardeners could not plant potatoes on Good Friday, either in the light or the dark of the moon ; summers and autumns were shorter- Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida. The flora gradually changed ; trees ceased bearing and flowers blooming in Greenland, and the poet began to write that missionary song about her "icy mountains.
The hides on the rhino and elephant thickened and toughened ; the elephant and mastodon grew an enveloping whisker of wool, and the good sprinters among animals moved south, while others, like bears, several species of squirrels, and snakes, frogs and reptiles in general adopted the cunning expedient of hibernation, and as the autumn came on cold, they gave the drowse free rein and went to sleep to save domestic expenses.
Food, fuel, hunting game — all abolished by the strange coma of suspended animation. The earth, year by year, froze to deeper depths ; people could hear it crack, thump and jump in the night, like ice-bound ponds. The stronger animals pre-empted the deep gorges and wooded ravines, out of the blasts, yet had a sad. Most animals as well as plants winter- killed, as the snow drifted higher, not melting in the brief summers. That is, it was a glacier, growing ever thicker, and this ice-sheet reached to the latitude of St.
Louis before it melted. No vegetation but arctic could live amid its Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida moraines, and arctic plants held on by pure grit — those that were not run over by the planers of ice ; and it is the bark, cones and bits of woods from these mangled forests that we bring up in our well-borings.
The imagination staggers at thought of computing the millions on millions of cubic miles of rock pomace this gigantic ice sledge brought down from the north to scatter Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida soil deeply over British America and the northern part of the United States, filling the gorges and valleys with drift.
Professor Samuel Calvin, of the Iowa State University, and state geolo- gist, tells how the soils of Iowa were produced by the action of ice: What Iowa would have been had it never suffered from the effects of the ponderous ice sheets that successively over- flowed its surface, is illustrated, but not perfectly, in the driftless area. Here we have an area that was not invaded by glaciers. Allamakee, parts of Jackson, Dubuque, Clayton, Fayette and Winneshiek counties belong to the driftless area.
During the last two decades numerous deep wells have been bored through the loose surface deposit, and down into the underlying rocks. The record of these wells shows that the rock surface is very uneven. Before the glacial drift which now mantles nearly the whole of Iowa was deposited, the surface had been carved into an intricate system of hills and valleys. There were narrow gorges hundreds of feet in depth, and there were rugged, rocky cliffs and isolated buttes corresponding in height with the depth of the valleys.
The principal drainage streams flow in valleys that measure from the summits of the divides, six hundred feet or more in depth. The Sex chatting in Colchester Vermont Iowa river, in Allamakee county, for example, flows between picturesque cliff's that rise almost vertically from three to four hundred feet, while from the summit of the cliffs the land rises gradually to the crest of the divide, three, four, Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida five miles back from the stream.
Tributary streams cut the lateral slopes and canyon walls at intervals. These again have tributaries of the second order. In such a region a quarter section of level land would be a curiosity. This is a fair sample of what Iowa would have been had it not been planed down by the leveling effects of the glaciers.
The soils of Iowa have a value equal to all of the silver and gold mines of the world combined. The glaciers in their long journey ground up the rocks over which they moved and mingled the fresh rock flour from granites of British America and northern Minnesota with pulverized limestones and shales of more southern regions, and used these rich materials in covering up the bald rocks and leveling the surfaces of pre-glacial Iowa.
The materials are in placet hundreds of feet in depth. They are not oxidized or leached, but retain the carbonates and other soluble constituents that contribute so largely to the growth of plants. The physical condition of the materials is ideal, rendering the soil porous, facilitating the distribution of moisture, and offering unmatched Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida for the em- ployment of improved machinery in all the processes connected with cultiva- tion.
Even the driftless area received great benefit from the action of glaciers, for, although the area was not invaded by ice, it was yet to a large extent covered by a peculiar deposit called loess, which is generally con- nected with one of the later sheets of drift.
The loess is a porous clay, rich in carbonate of Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida. Throughout the driftless area it has covered up many spots that would otherwise have been bare rocks. It covered the stifif intract- able clays that would otherwise have been the only soils of the region.
Seeking long term Cincinnati Ohio with older woman in itself constitutes a soil of great fertility. Every part of Iowa is debtor in some way to the great ice sheets of the glacial period.
Adult Friends Sex Dating, Girl for fuck in latur in Castiadas
The very oldest rocks of the Mis- sissippi valley have contributed Granny sex Hayesville Iowa IA looking for sex Cypress Gardens Florida to making our soils what they are, and every later formation laid down over the surface of Iowa, or regions north of it, has furnished its quota of materials to the same end. The history of Iowa's soils, therefore, embraces the whole sweep of geologic times. The growth and decay of a Fresno fuck male gay san series of generations of plants have contributed certain organic constituents to the soil.
