Water and Life.
That the depopulation of the earth will be brought about through the failure of the water supply is the conclusion reached by the French geologist, M. Martel. He has made observations of subterranean caverns, and says that the earth is gradually drying up. They not only contain (he says) the secret of prehistoric life, inasmuch as they were the homes of men of the remotest age. but, also, bear indications of the endless future. M. Martel has found proof of a steady fall in the level of the water in these subterranean depths, and from these facts he arrives at his conclusions.
