VIEW ON ROCK RIVER. ROCK, COUNTY, WISCONSIN. HE story of the nation for 200 years is the story of Rock county for sixty. There have been the same changes, albeit, swifter and with less delay between the different stages. Indian hunting ground has changed to battlefield; battlefield has smiled and blossomed under the pioneer's plow, and, in turn, the pioneer's cabin has been replaced by the factory, the mill and the comforts of city life-all within the memory of man. In large part, this quickness of development must be laid to favorable location. Setting aside minor details, Wisconsin presents two general slopes-a short, abrupt declivity to Lake Superior and a long, gentler incline southward. Through the center of this southward slope there extends a moderate south and north elevation or arch-a low anti-clinal axis-giving a southeasterly and southwest- erly inclination to the strata on either side.
