liONES OF A MAMMOTH.
llesnatn of a Huce Animal t'nearthed
la Molme 4halen of the Past.
While digging clay in Miles' brick
yard, near Mollne. the other afternoon,
an employe of the yard,x unearthed a pile
of bones, which were deeply embedded in
the clay at a depth of 12 to 13 feet, on
the north bank of the clay pit. In taking
out the bones several of them were broken,
though a couple of pieces were taken out
whole . Some of the smaller bones found
in the pile were very rotten, and fell to
pieces while being handled. One of the
two pieces now at the Republican-Journal
office is about 10 inches lone, and
tapers from about six inches in width at
one end to about four inches at the other,
where it has been broken off, leaving a
jagged edge. The portion from which it
had been broken is missing, having crum
bled away after being taken from the
ground, though this specimen is in a good
state of preservation. It is perfectly flit
on one side, while the other side is
rounded. The second piece is about
three inches long and two inches wide,
and is of a peculiar shape with ragged
edges where it has been broken . The
Tne pieces were shown to Dr. J . H.
Sale, who at once decided that they were
not human bones, but offered no opinion
as to what animal they belonged. They
ure the relic of tome buge animal, but the
E9 and shape of them makes it appnrent
that they are not the bones of a buffalo.
They are undoubtedly the remains of a
mastodon, an animal now extinct, but
which is known to have infested these
parts years ago, as evidenced by several
specimens of bones of the animal which
I ave been found in this vicinity, one be-
iig at the clay-pit of the Rockford Con
struction company in Rock Island re
Mr. Miles will give the specimens to the
museum of the Moline Hish school.
Should they prove to be those of a masto
dm they will be highly prized by the
s udents as the bones of this animal are
v-rv rare indeed.
At Edgewater, a subutb of Chicago,
last Sunday, occurred the ordination to
tie diaconate of the Eoiscop! church, of
Frederic W. Keator, son of J. S. Keator,
of Moline, and brother of S. J. Keator.
T.ie ceremony was conducted in the
Church of the Atonement. Nearly 300
pt rsons witnessed the solemn rite. The
Chicago Tribune account says thit at
it :40 tne choral procession left the sac
ritty chanting Roper's processional
"Jerusalem and traversing the church
entered tne stalls, in tne chancel were
Bishop McLaren and his chaplain, Rev.
Luther Pardee, of the cathedral of SS.
Peter and Paul, Rev. S. D. EisalL of
St. Peter's church, and Archdeacon Bish
op. Mr. dsall delivered the sermon ap-
po nted by the rubric to preeede the or
ihis parish, or as it now is, mission,
was established three years ago. Mr.
Keator, then a practicing lawyer, took
charge of the work as lay reader, but in
the fall of 1SS9 at the earnest solicitation
of Mr. Edsall and the parishioners he re
linquished the law and entered Lane The
oioicai seminary. L.st week lie was
graduated and by special favor of the
bistop was admitted to the diaconate as
stated. Frederic is a graduate of Tale
college and of Title law school.
Boys who Mtoie Bran.
The Moline boys, Ernest Matsen, Al
bert kelson and John Forewrinkle who
fetolu the brass near the waterworks build
ing in this city the other day. are about
19 years of sge, sons of respectable par
ents, with wtom they reside in the west
end of Moline. About 11 o'clock last
Tuesday night they came to the shanty
near the Rock Iand waterworks and
stole the brass. Testerdaj morning Mat
sen iried to sell it to a Jew who does a
rag-fathering business in the tri-cities.
As he was about to dispose of the stolen
metal an officer appeared upon the scene
and young Matsen flew to Rjck Island
and is now doubtless in Davenport
endeavoring to escape the law. The of
ficer later captured Forewrinkle. The
latter says Nelson Las gone to Chicago.
The boys are pretty apt to go to the pen
itently, as they forced open the shed
to oltain entrance. The brass is valued
at about S50 and is made up into brass
boxes for railroad cars, which with the
wtrk probably makes the railorad com
