But very few of them succeed in getting through the earths atmosphere without becoming disintegrated and falling As harmless dust. But meteorites which Are larger and of such toughness that they can Pierce the Earth a atmosphere and reach its surface present a More serious aspect. J meteorites weighing Many tons have at times reached the Earth and buried 1 themselves deep in the ground such missiles we Ould prove exceedingly destructive if they should strike a City or populous neighbourhood but so far 1 they have usually fallen in out of the Way districts although casualties have been known to happen. When a Large meteorite plunges into the Earth s atmosphere the resistance of the latter causes it to become White hot leaving in its Wake a fiery train striking to behold its Progress is accompanied by loud Thunder like explosions. Sometimes it bursts before reaching the Earth scattering a Shower of fragments Over a Large area just recently eleven pieces of a shattered meteorite were recovered in the Umatilla National Park in the state of Washington the largest piece being As Large As a quart can. The glowing missile struck a tree a terrific blow severing it sixty feet above the ground and setting fire to both portions. The tree was two feet four inches in diameter. A Forest Ranger who was the first to reach the spot found the pieces of the meteorite too hot to touch two hours afterwards. Many of these meteorites which have been recovered from time to time Are preserved in the various museums. One Large specimen weigh million tons ing several tons May be seen in the to strike one museum of natural history in new York City. Perhaps one of the largest mete j orites that Ever struck the Earth at least the largest since the beginning of historic times fell in a dense Forest in Central Siberia on june 30th, 1908. This is in a Region inhabited by the Tun uses who report that the fall was accompanied by a hot air wave which scorched and burned the Forest Over Many Square Miles. According to their report there was first a Bright Light in the sky Wirich turned into a dark Cloud from which issued loud peals of Thunder. Then followed the fiery wave from an almost inaccessible place in the Forest. The Shock of the Impact was registered by the Seismograph at Irkutsk eight Hundred Miles away. The russian Academy of science sent out an expedition to investigate but it was unable to reach the place owing to its inaccessibility. But during the past year. 1927� another expedition was More successful and it reports that it found the ground pitted with Crater like holes Over several Square Miles in diameter millions of dead Trees of the primeval Forest lie Flat and stripped of their branches 1 every tree pointing outward from the Center. At the nearest settlement if j to Miles away two Farmers were j knocked Down by the blast of the me j tear item a fall and scorched by its heat. Both the heat and the explosion were perceived four Hundred Miles away. Of a Herd of 1.500 tame Reindeer be i lived to have been in the Vicinity no Trace has Ever been found it is estimated that the weight of the meteorite before it burst into fragments must have been not less than half a be recorded As one of the greatest calamities of modern times. Another visit of thus kind happened in Arizona away Back in prehistoric times and left its record in the formation of Canyon i fable Crater this meteorite or Comet which Ever it was struck the Earth in the Plain Between Winslow and Flagstaff and buried itself in the Earth 1,500 feet under ground tearing a Hole through solid Rock and Earth nearly a mile in diameter. Efforts Are now being map by the meteor Crater exploration and mining company to unearth the meteor for the valuable minerals it is supposed to contain. An interesting article on this with several splendid cuts of the Crater May be found in the literary digest of june 30th it is Lucky for us that these huge meteoric visits Are few and far Between and that heretofore they have fallen in out of the was places but we cannot foretell when or where the next one May strike shot As Hen thief youth near death Choc in my Carmel.
