Engineering Magazine: There ara several instances where lighthouses have been increased in height becauae of the sand which has engulfed them. In one place on the New Jersey coast I once stumbled upon the corner of an old rail fence which had been burted and exposed again on the ocean sW. It marked the site of an old field. On the North Carolina dunes, chimneys projecting above the sand belong to the houses of an old fishing village. In France and other parts of Europe villages have been buried. At Soulac in Gaacony a croïs was discovered projecting above the sand. Furtfrer investigation showed that it was attached to a steeple, and later a well-preserved church of the thlrteenth cer.tury was excavated. The church is now in use.
