      The pairs of depressions are arranged one behind the other to form two rows on opposite sides of, and parallel to, the long axis of the trace. It moves particles of soil by the force of the blows of the falling drops, and washes them down all slopes to within reach of permanent streams. The Rhode Island Formation will be described below. Trails with subparallel grooves Fig. Mica may be recognized by its glittering plates, which split into [10] thin elastic scales.

      A piece of sandstone with calcareous cement, or a bit of old mortar, which is really an artificial stone also made of sand cemented by lime, may be treated in a test tube with hydrochloric acid to illustrate the process.
