IN CENTER OF ROCK.
Iron Ball Removed From Rock Ten
Feet Square-No Signs Showing
How It Entered.
While blasting in Heller's creek
the county chain gang discovered an
iron ball about an inch and a half
in diameter, which had long- been
buried in the center of a rock, which,
it is said, was fully ten feet square.
The rock was being removed from
the creek by blasting, and when it
vas split the ball was discovered.
How it got into the rock no one
knows. There was no trace in the
rock to show hcw it en:ered. The
ball, which is almost perfectly round,
shows the traces of having been
moulded, and has very much the ap
pearance of some of the cannon balls
used in the Revolut*ionary war.
Where it came from and how it
got into the rock will doubtless al
ways remain a mystery, but the story
of the place of its concealment, with
out the sligbtesE trace of entrance,
