A Huge Meteorite Re
UOF. IIEXKY A. WARD, of
toehester, N. Y., the veteran
meteorite hunter, recently
found a meteorite of tremen
dous size, it lias a jengtn or unrtceu
feet nnd one Inch; width, six feet and
two Indies; thickness, live feet and
four inches, and -weight fifty tons.
Professor Ward has named it Kacubir
ito, after the mining town near which
It was unearthed, and which is situ
ated on the Kio Sinaloa, Mexico. It
took twenty-eight able-bodied peons
one entire day to uncover its upper
surface, making an excavation thirty
feet on a side, with the great meteorite
lying within. At the end of the second
day they were able to bring the huge
mass to a semi-vertical position, the
Mexicans standing aghast at the reve
lation of tin ir work.
The I'acubirito was found on a farm
called Kanehito, which tills the narrow
mountain valley, running nearly north
and south, and 2000 feet above the
level of the sea. It lay in a cornfield,
close by the eastern edge of the valley,

nofe- end sugntly projecting above ine
-Yevel. Professor Ward walked for
many feet along and across its surface,
surveying the dimensions as tar as
they were exposed, but he had no idea
1ivw far the large and heavy mass pen-
ati'ated -the soil beneath until the work
ay excavation was begun.
The characteristic pit tings covering
the entire surface are well marked,
and very regular in size-about two
or three inches across, with well de
fined yet low walls. The bed in which
tl"e tremendous rock lay was found
(JT' a clean depression crushed into
lock with absolutely no trace of
soil between it and the part whore the
full weight cf the mass had' fallen,
. showing that the meteorite had fallen
on the bare surface of this district at
a period before the vegetable soil had
bosun to form here, carrying hack the
fall of Hacubirito to a remotely distant

has been collecting and studying me
teorites, lie has interested himself in
them in every part of the globe where
they have been found. As the result

stalled at the American Museum of
Natural History, New 1'ork, the Wurd
t'oonlry collection of meteorites, allow
ing tills collection, Avhich represents
mi amount of labor, research, indefat
igable industry and painstaking Inge
nuity of which the average visitor is
entirely ignorant, to bo placed in the
halls of this museum for inspection
and study. The collection represents
511 distinct "falls," about five-sixths
of all the meteorites known to science.
To see these elsewhere would require
a visit to the great museums of the
world and many cabinets of private
collectors. P.acubirlto, however, is
possessed of qualities which render
it of greater scientific value than any
of Professor Ward's other meteorites.
The inner structure shows the octahe
dral system of crystallization in a vy
marked degree. No other meteoric iron
is known which shows this so well.
Fractured surfaces show crystalliza
tion plates with faces from three to
nineteen millimeters in greatest diame
ter. Many of these faces are covered
with line films of faenite, which in
most cases are of the characteristic
bronze yellow color. Acid brings out
the Widmanstattian figures in a most
beautiful manner. From the coarse,
crystals on a fractured or weathered
face of this iron we niigJit anticipate
that etching would reveal a large wide
pattern in its markings.
As a fact, cuite the rovers? is true.
The figures, while very sharp, are
small in pattern, and are composed cf
narrow blades of kamacile, but a frac
tion of a millimeter in thickness. At
intervals, thes-j blades appear to be of
more than double., that thickness, hut
when examined with a glass it is seen
that these apparently broader plates
are composed of what might be termed
"bundles'.' of narrow kamacite bauds.
The rhombic figures on the etched face
will average from one and a half to
five millimeters in diameter, two an
gles of same being sixtv decrees and
12!) degrees, while the triangular mark
ings will generally rang" from eight
to fifteen millimeters with angles cf
fifty-five degrees and seventy degrees.
Two or three troilites are shown, and
the iron is essentially tough.
After a long, protracted effort. Pro
fessor Ward succeeded in deta china:
from the mass an already partly loos
ened piece of about eleven "pounds in
weight. This, polished and etched on
one side, showing the beautiful Wid
manstattian figures, has taken its place
in the Ward-Coonley collection of me
teorites. This collection is now on dis
play (on deposit) in the American Mu
seum of Natural History in New York
