The finding of the bones of a
mastodon, three miles north of Con
verse, promises to prove one of the!
most important discoveries of the 1
kind ever made in Indiana. There
have been scores of instances of uii- j
earthing of detached and badly de
cayed bones of prehistoric animals
in this region, but the bones of the
animal at Converse are not only
numerous, but are in a state of pre
servation. One of the bones is the
femur, which is 3 feet and ten inch
es in length and 19 inches in cir
cumference. The bone indicates
that the animal must have been 12
feet at the hips and 14 feet at the
shoulders. A large r.uuiber of ribs
have been taken out, in good con
dition, and many ot them ie 4
feet lonj. There i a clavicle J'Jx
3j, a molar tooth weighing 2
pounds; the bones ot the front leg,
which compares well with the le
mur referred to; the points of the
tusks, unbroken, aie three feet King
and the broken parts at ths base
from one to three feet in length;
tusk, complete measures aver 6 ft.,
and from this it is estimated that
the whole tusk measured 10 leet
and twi feet in circumference at the
middle. Other large bones have
been uncovered, but because of
the water tilling the hole, cannot be
removed for a few days. The
skeleton lay from 4 to 5 feet under
the surface. The locality is visited
daily by scores of cunous persons.
