Footnote #2: Quoting from French's "Gazetteer," the following is the classification of the New York System, with the position which the different strata occupy in the classification of English geologists. The order of arrangement is from below upward:
Footnote #3: It is known as Juniper Swamp, and is situated in the western part of Long Island, in the Borough of Queens, between Maspeth and Middle Village. The bog covers about 100 acres and the peat bed is from 10 to 15 feet thick, constituting about 42,000,000 cubic feet of available fuel.

Footnote #6: The steamer "Colonel J. M. Schoonmnaker," which left Duluth-Superior Harbor, September 30, 1924. See statistical Report of Marine Commerce of Duluth, Minnesota, and Super, Wisconsin, for 1924 (Government Printing Office, Washington, 1925).
Footnote #7: Ibid., p. 2. Duluth-Superior harbor comes second to New York among American ports, and third to New York, London, among world ports in total fright tonnage arriving and departing, though there are several other ports which come before Duluth-Superior in value of imports and exports. It is of interest to note that Buffalo, in 1923, stood fourth among the principal United States ports, on tonnage statistics, the relative standing of the right largest being: New York, Duluth-Superior, Los Angeles, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Ashtabula (Ohio), Boston.
