The Planet Mars and its Inhabitants - Eros Urides and J. L. Kennon - Страница 1 из 86

To the millions of God's children on
this earth enthralled in darkness, for whom
the solicitude of the Father is now in
evidence, this book is dedicated.
May it be a beacon to light the way of
weary searchers after TRUTH.
One hemisphere of Mars showing the North Polar Cap and the main Canal
System covering the planet. The many thousands of small lateral
canals, radiating from the larger waterways, and which form an
important part of the general plan, have been purposely omitted from
the above to avoid confusion. The circular spots and dots are the
principal reservoirs used for impounding water for use during the long
Martian summer. The dark areas shown in the drawing are Mars ancient
sea bottoms now covered with vegetation. It will be observed that most
of the canals are double, paralleling each other at a distance of about
seventy-five miles. Centers of population are not shown for the reason
that space is not available on so small a drawing. The City of Urid is
situated adjacent to the reservoir in the center of drawing, just north
of the equator.
Chapter I.-EROS URIDES, of the City of Urid, planet Mars, the Author,
introduces himself and his book THE PLANET MARS AND ITS INHABITANTS.
Chapter II.-He describes the Population Centers, Temperatures and
Climate. The whole Planet is gridironed with Canals. (See Diagram.)
