Page 253 - Not high-raised battlement or labored mound, Thick wall or moated gate ; Not cities proud, with spires and turrets crowned ; Not bays and broad-armed ports, Where, laughing at the storm, rich navies ride ; Not starred and spangled courts, Where low-browed baseness wafts perfume to pride. No: MEN, high-minded MEN...
Page 13 - I welcome you to this Conference at the White House. You have come hither at my request, so that we may join together to consider the question of the conservation and use of the great fundamental sources of wealth of this Nation. So vital is this question, that for the first time in our history the chief executive officers of the States separately, and of the States together forming the Nation, have met to consider it.
Page 253 - In forest, brake, or den, As beasts excel cold rocks and brambles rude ; Men, who their duties know, But know their rights, and, knowing, dare maintain, Prevent the long-aimed blow, And crush the tyrant while they rend the chain : These constitute a State, And sovereign Law, that State's collected will O'er thrones and globes elate, Sits Empress, crowning good, repressing ill.
Page 207 - This rock is of surpassing beauty as a building material, being made up of concentric nodules, from the size of a pea to that of a walnut, firmly cemented together.
Page 212 - Marysvale deposit, so far as known, is not of such magnitude as to afford a source of all the potash salts now consumed in the United States, but it may prove to be an important factor in providing an American supply that will perhaps be especially available to local and western markets, particularly in meeting the demand for higher-grade salts. Possibly also the greatest importance of the commercial development of this deposit will be in the added stimulus it may afford to exploration for other...
Page 212 - This gives a surface area of substantially proved outcrop of 35,000 square feet, or about four-fifths of an acre. The specific gravity of the Marysvale alunite has been determined in several specimens by WT Schaller, with results in close accord at about 2.82. Therefore a cubic foot of the ore may be assumed to weigh about 175 pounds. An acre of ground underlain by this rock to a depth of only 1 foot would contain 3,800 short tons of alunite. If the area of available alunite is only 35,000 square...
Page 61 - ... probably responsible for the great lowering in transpiration as has already been suggested. EFFECTS ON THE COMPOSITION OF WHEAT Percentage and total weight of nitrogen Nitrogen was determined in all plants harvested. The method used was the Gunning modification of the Kjeldahl method, as outlined in the methods of the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists. The results are summarized in the tables that follow. TABLE 42. EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SOIL MOISTURE CONTENTS ON THE PERCENTAGE AND TOTAL...
Page 210 - LOCATION OF DEPOSIT. A deposit of alunite recently discovered near Marysvale, Piute County, Utah, is being developed and may produce potassium sulphate' on a commercial scale. The deposit is located near the head of Little Cottonwood Canyon about 7 miles southwest of Marysvale, which is the present terminus of the San Pete & Sevier branch of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. It occurs high in the Tushar Range, at an elevation of 9,900 to 1 1 ,000 feet above sealevel, or about4,000 feet above the...
Page 163 - ... on the application of heat to a viscous liquid: while a maltha or soft asphalt may be defined as a soft bitumen, consisting of alicyclic hydrocarbons, which, on heating, or by other natural causes, becomes converted into asphalt. The line between the two classes can not be sharply drawn. " Bitumen," also, is a term that has been omitted from the table, although its adjective, "bituminous,
Page 212 - ... salts now consumed in the United States, but it may prove to be an important factor in providing an American supply that will perhaps be especially available to local and western markets, particularly in meeting the demand for higher-grade salts. Possibly also the greatest importance of the commercial development of this deposit will be in the added stimulus it may afford to exploration for other similar deposits of this mineral, especially in this general region, and it is on the discovery of...
