OHIO'S SERPENT MOUND.
SAVING ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS
OF PREHISTORIC MONUMENTS.
jThy Harvard College 11a Deeded Tt to
the State Archaeologieal and Hictorieal
Society-Mound Erected For Ceremou
ial and Symbolical Purposes.
By a recent vote of the ,arv:d
corporation the Treasurer of Iarar.
College has been authorized to to d
to the Ohio State Archaeo!ogical :iaml
I Historical Society the Serpent Mound
Park which for the last fourteen yne
has been in the custody of the 1\a
body Museum in Cambridge. flhus r-c

most remarkable and famous of ilie
thousands of monuietis (if the :nt
eient mound builders w hieh ex_ ist with
in her borders.
The gretit Serpent Mound lies in the
Township of Bratton. overlooking
Brush Creek, about seven miles fron
Peebles. the nearest railway station.
It had been notze with wonder by.tho
first settlers, but it was not until 1814;
that it was measured and described
by Squier and Davis, who published
a report with drawings from survi-ys
in the first volume of the "Smithson
inn Contributions to Knowledge." The
two explorers had found the site of
the mound covered by a forest. Th:r
teen or fourteen years aster their visit
a tornado swept directly along Serpent
Hill, practically sweeping the forest
clear. This led to reclaiming the hind
for cultivation, but by 1883 it had re
lapsed again to a state of nature and
was overgrown with sumach anl
In that year Professor Frederick W.
Putnam, .urator of the Peabdy M1u
seum and Peabody professor of arch
aeology and ethnology at Iiar-ard,
visited the spot in the course of a trvp
which he was making throurh South
ern Ohio for the purpose of examining
some of the best known of the ancient
monuments for which this part of the
State is famous throughout the world.
le was able to make arrangcnents
with Mr. Lovett, the owner of the
land, to have the Site cleared of un
derbrush, so that for the fi-st time in
years the extraordinary character and
grandeur of the Great SerpC-nt wvas
apparent to visitors.
It has been reckoned that r less
than 13.000 mounds and earth-orks,
built either by the Indians or y the
so-called "prehistoric" Inhabitants of
the Mississippi Valley, are in-luded
in the State of Ohio alone. But the
advance of cultivation, the cutpidity
of seekers after the buried treasures
which are popularly suiosed to be
hidden under many of these works, I
and in some cases pure vandalism,
have put many, ineluing, of course,
some of the most important, in jeop- 0
ardy. An example of this last kind of i
destruction is to be found at 3ari ia,t
where two great embankments, fat
inous among students of American
lrchaeology, have been partly de
stroyed-one having been built upon
tnd in part leveled, and the other I
nade into- b'ricks. The destr etion -of

WHY MS PINKHAM -
Is Able to Help Sick Women
When Doctors Fail.
How gladly would men fle to wo- P
man's aid did they but understand a
woman's feelings, trials, sensibilities,
and peculiar organic disturbances.
Those things are known only to -

is not at his command.
To treat a case properly it is neces

sician. She cnnot ring herself to
tell everything, and the phi.ian'Is
at a constant <adfantage. This is
why, foqr ..hLpast twenty-five years,
thousands of women have been con
fiding their troubles to 3Irs. Pinkham,
and whose advice has brought happi
ness and health to countless women in t
the United 'States.
Mrs. Chappell. of Grant Park, Ill.,
whose portrait we publish. advises all
suffering women to seek Mrs. Pink
ham's advice and use Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, as ,they
cured her of inflammation of the ovaries
and womb; she. therefore. speaks from
knowledge, and her experience ought
to give others confidence. Mrs. Pink
ham's address is Lynn, Mass., and her
advice is absolutely free.
