My excuse for offering another paper on this well-worn subject is my recently acquired familiarity with a deposit of Lake Dakota, which closely resembles loess, in structure and composition, and in its relations to underlying till and to recent channels. In short it seems to be a more recent and less extensive formation of the same sort. The resemblances are so striking and its fluvio-lacustrine origin so unquestioned that a similar origin for the loess of the Missouri is strongly suggested.
