Famous Tides of Fundy
Brief reference is made in nearly all schoolbooks to the Bay of Fundy and its remarkable tides, but in none is justice done to the most remarkable manifestation of its kind in the world. Most notable of all its features is the reversible falls of the St. John River, near St. John, N.B. Imagine a perfectly placid surface of water, so placid that it mirrors all the surrounding shores, suddenly converted into a raging current and tumbling waterfall. Go to St. John, N.B., cross to the Carleton shore, walk a short distance along the latter and you need not imagine this phenomenon. You can see it with your own eyes if you reach the spot just before the change of the tide, says an eastern exchange.
The St. John River, or, rather, the harbor, contracts here to a beautiful rocky gorge, spanned by two handsome suspension bridges. Above this gorge the river broadens out again. But during the twenty-four hours there are only four intervals of twenty minutes each when shipping can pass through the gorge. On each change of the tide there is at slack water a period of twenty minutes during which the water in the gorge is on a level with that of the harbor and the river and perfectly placid. During those twenty minutes the shipping hurries through.
