LOSS IN MUSEUM FIRE
GREATER THAN T
PROFE880R BARBOUR PLACE8
AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO
8PECIMEN8 AT $10,000.
ProfoBBor Barbour, who is rapidly
pushing tho work of repairing tho
Museum collections Injured by Wed
nesday's lire, hue announcod that tho
damage Is greater than ho at ttrst an
ticipated. Ho now estimates that It
will tako all of $10,000 to covor tho
loss to the specimens alone, whoroas
tho original estimate was between
$5,000 and $0,000.
Three very valuable Bpoclmons woro
practlcully ruined. One of those, tho
skeleton of a prehistoric rhinoceros,
whicn formerly roamed tho tropical
forestB of Nebraska, can probably be
replaced by weokB of searching In the
Bad Lands, although at presont no
known duplicate oxIstB. Tho skull of
a mammoth wild boar which web
damaged cannot bo restored, but for
tunatoly the museum had two of theBo
skulls and the one burned Was tho
Iosb valuable. A $5,000 offer for tho
other was refused on the day It was
discovered. The only other known
specimen of this type Is owned by
Cornell University. In addition to
tho two mentioned, a prehistoric ele
phant's tusk, twelve foet long- and
one of the largest of the few in ox
lstonco, was very badly burned and
cracked by tho heat. All of tho pieces
have been saved and Professor Bar
bour hopes to bo able partially to re
pair the damage.
Although the Iosb was considerable,
It might have been much worso. For
oxample, one case of well drillings,
whl-jh cost $30,000 to produce, waa
not injured In tho slightest degree.
Barbour Has Personal Loss.
That which can not bo replaced,
however, is the great amount of tlmo
which Professor Barbour and his as
sistants have spent In making and
arranging thfcse collections. This has
boon ProfeflBor Barbour's life work.
Ho has spont twonty summers search
ing for these prehistoric relics and
ho has dvotod all -ills spare tlmo In
tho Interim to classifying and arrang
ing his findings. Ho also lost about
$2,000 worth of individual property In
