Among the recent additions of interest to the department of Geology iu the Museum of Natural History at Central Park arc some monster bones, taken from the auc.ient seas of Kansas ami Colorado, and reDrescnlinir a race f creatures which had reached the maxi mum of physical growth known on this efooe. rue discoveries were onjr'nany made by Prof. Mudgc, recently access ed, whose name is connected with all the important discoveries of the great west, ana bv iror. jwarsn. The states of Texas and Colorado, dur iner what is known in ecological par lance as the age of reptiles, contained great salt and fresh water inland seas, whose swamos and low-lands swarmed with creatures of herculean dimensions. The mautaite terrt. or bad h.nds of Colorado, and the arid, chalky deserts of Kansas are the bed of these ancient seas, and on account of the sterility and barrenness of the country, very few peo ple, except occasional miners, penetra ted them. Finally, science inserted the entering wedge, an exticditlon crossed the wastes, and scenes were opened to view that eoualexl in truth the exairger alions of Verne. The dry. chalky sand had been worn bv wind and rain into a thousand different shapes. Castles and bastions of Immense size towered aloft. Hanked bv living buttresses of nature's own design. Spires, sharp and jagged. Pierced the air. rising from domes sug eestivc of Moorish desigus and the Al- conda, while the red, yellow and blue clays gave to the whole a fantastic ap pearaucc. In forming these quaint shapes, the eJeuiciiU ex postal to view in numerable bones anil skeletons of forms that once swam over the spot. Prof. Marsh says: "Iu one place I counted the remains of five huge uionsters spread upon "the plain.". -Jiotue of the bones. It was found, were portions of reptiles related to the alligator and crocodile Others apparently belonged to the skele tons of sen serpents. So complete ure the remains thai a restoration ot the skeletons eutire will be a comparatively easy matter. Fort Riley, Kansas, stauds upon the shores ol this prehistoric, waste. The basin of this aucient oceans fills the great tract lyiug between Missouri and the Rocky Mountains, ami ex tending 'from the Gulf ol Alex ico - uu uiikuowu distance to the north. The disturbances that ended the preceding erea caused a general eleva tion of the surface, and gradually the seas and lakes became dry land. The sea bottom, which is of limestone, be came a monster grave-yard of marine life. The country for miles has been wash ed away, leaving here end there lolly monuments of sandstone. Tbe expedi tions not oulv round the remains of huge quadrupedes here, but oyster shells of great size scattered over the plains. Homo of the shells were open, others were closed, und all were of such size that did they contain the millusk itself, five or six ot them would yield a meal for a whole party. Some of them measured thirty inches across. At the foot of some of the bluffs portions of monsters were diseoved, the remainder of their vertebral columns being buried in Ihe limestone to unknown depths. Here a paddle protruded, there a law armed with tremendous teeth. The reptiles found in Kansas now, number ing over fifty species, vary in length from 10 to 200 feet. On this aucient ocean the ancestor of the sea serpent of to-dav disported itself. Its shape was such as to enable it to reuch upward and exhibit a long tapering neck and arrow-shaped head. A specimen of an immense snake-like species (the Clidas- tesl has recently been found in Canon Citv. It bad evidently died while ly ing on its back. The flippers or paddles were found at some distance from the body. The tape measure laid along the vertebra indica.ed a length ot 1; teet The tail alone measured 34 feet, and evidently tapered down to -a delicate point. The rows of terrible teeth were devised, for holding prey, but as they were of no use for cutting il up, it must have been swullowed whole. The only sound that the snake could utter was hiss. That it had a lorked tongue is proved bv the lack of room in the mouth for a larger one. A turtle was found with a shell twenty feet in width aud thirty feet in length. Prof. Cope has named this gigantic tortoise protos lei?a triiras. the first generic term refer ring probably to the peculiar condition ol its seeminglv unucveiopeu this am conii-ruous parts, which are like those of ail oidinnrv turlllo just hatched Here is the most gigantic of all turtle in maturity, having the undevelopeti structure ot' the immature state. One or the largest reptiles ot this er iod that has Ix-eu found is the 1 Union The lower jaw wasdiscovered projecting from a chalk clilt. and. on removing lue earth, a long ppiecting' nmr.zlc was dis cerned. This resembles the head of I lie Muni no.ed sturgeon of the present wa era The Pterodactyl umbrosus, the veritable flying reptile or dragon of that remote era. was also unearthed. I h specimen- was found at the base, of lil it if. It measured twentv-nine tee from fincer to finirer. and when alive must have been one of the most terribl ol tho inhabitants of the ancient work It derived ils nower of flight.' not bv membiane stretched over four elongated tinwrs. with a rudimentary thumb, like the bats, nor by a wing without, distinct fingers, as in birds, but by a wing sus tained principally on a very elongated toe, while Ihe other members possessed their normal shortness, and were armed with claws. Wilh this remakable con formation were associated a long neck and beak. It could fly in the air, remain on the wing a long lime, and susicud it self to trees and rocks by its short toes. Another wonder discovered was Ihe Hen ptroni, a large water bin! seven feet in height, and having knife like teeth. The teeth were set in groves, the wings wew rudimentary aud useless, while the legs were like those of a duck. A study of ils skeleton shows it to have been close ly related to the ostrich. Another won der was a flying-bird, the ichthyoruis, having still more reptilian characteris tics. Its teeth, like the alligator's, wore in distinct sockets, and, stranger yet, ils vertebne is bi-concave a peculiarty only found in the fishes and a few reptiles. One of the most gigantic reptiles dis covered was the Amphicrelias. The thigh bone was so heavy that the find ers were forced to harness a mnle to it to drag it out of the hole. It measured over eleven feet in length. A section of ihe vertebrfe, from the dorsal portion, was a heavy lift for four men, and when it was placed npon the ground in the posi tion assumed by the animal, it towered above the tallest of the party, being over six feet in height. To apppreciale this. the reader must remember that the cor responding bone of the nearest living representative of this animal can be lift ed by the little finger. Other fossil aaurians. whose thigh bones are six feet in length, have lieen given a length of over 150 feet. If they increased in pro portion to the size of this bone, we should have a creature over 200 feet in length, hut of course this is merely a supposi lion, though quite a probable one This saurian belonged to the genus Amirfu- erelitit. A thigh-bone of au allied genus over six reel long can lie seen in me mu aeuni of natural hislorv. Central Park. It is in a case in geological hall, and side bv side wilh the same bone of the nearest allied form. Near by are other creatures representing tlie same age. Some of the whales of this and later times were one hundred and fifty feet long, and the state of Alabama was once their roaming-ground. In some locali ties now the mormons sections of back bones are so numerous that the farmers are obliged to burn them and build fences with them. In another c use in the museum is ar ranged a magnificent collection of fossil sharks' teeth, some of them as large as a man's hand. They belonged to a shark over 100 feet long. They came from the later beds of the Ashley ana cooper riv ers. South Carolina, and were collected by PPtf. HoliBc. the veteran geologist of Cluuiestoa. In a tall vase are some beautiful crinoids, presented to the mu seum bv Rupert L. htuart. in the same hall are enrions armored and warlike fishes called Cbimacroids, which meas ure thirty feet in length, and tbe bones of an annual quits as large as the living elephant, six of which are like those of the rhinoceros. This is' known to aci ence as the dinoceros. Tlie curious ore don, too. is here; an extinct animal that seemed l combine Ihe characteristics of the hog, camel and deer. ntore for your ut to aay that ha f f evr after com kVbrituice. to date, be Inn now over a uionOi ago.
