Our citizens were aroused from
their slumbers at 12:45 last night
by an alarm of fire. The usual
rapid response of the fire depart
ment followed, and the blaze was
discovered to be on the roof of a
house on North Locust street, but
was extinguished before any par

that the fire was started by a piece

THE PREHISTORIC MAMMOTH.
The bringing in of the bones
the mammoth that were found on
section 2, township 16, range 26, in
this county, recalls the frequent in
quiries that have often been made
by the public press of the state,
"what is Nebraska doing in the
wa- of preserving these valuable
relics of the s prehistoric past,"
These bones were first discovered
in 1890. The party owning the
land claims that he has plowed up
rib bones eight feet in length. They
were in a good state of preserva
tion. Had the scientist of our state
university taken pains to have
secured this find it is possible the
university museum might have now
on hand the complete frame of one
of these giant animals. From the
description given of the size of the
bones and in connection with the
ones now on exhibition at the
sheriff's office this animal must
have been fully fifteea feet in height
and over a rod in length; yet these
bones were finally collected and
brought in to be sold to the bone
buyer who will use them as fertil
izers. Imagination carries us back
to the days when the plains q Ne
braska were covered with a dense
growth of forest interspersed with
marshes and lakes, when the ele
phant and the mammoth contended
for supremacy on the rapidly form
ing lands of the great plains; when
the crocodile and the mammoth
water animals swarmed in the lakes
Yet as we find the bones of the
buffalo associated in the immediate
vicinity of these gigantic bones the
question arises was not this animal
also a semi-water animal, like the
water buffalo of China. In the
canyons of the south part of the
county bones and teeth of the ele
phant have been found, showing
the once tropical nature of the cli-
mate of the state.
