do not roallie that this feat la
the result of long years of practice,
and the utmost perseverance. "Bump

the acrobatic section of the profession
of entertaining and there are threo
members of the Barton family taking
the "bumps" at tho present time.
"There are few of the real 'bump

"I have been taking the bumps for
years past both, In burlesque and In
vaudeville. I .can't say when I be

stage waa when I was four years
old. I did a song and dance. And
I've been at It ever since. Of course,
you know, I was practically born on
tho atage. My father and mother and
aunta and uncles wore all perform

have been 'bumpers.'
"It Isn't particularly easy, but you
don't really notice It when you can
do a good 'bump and set away with

be rather a difficult branch of the
business for a grown person to lake
up. I began as a child and have been
thrown about tho atage or have

BEAR BONES FOUND
Pillotherium Had Bruin Claws, But
Was a Rodent.
NEW YOIIK. Nov. 8.-Th Ameri
can Museum of Natural History has
added to Its collection the skeleton
of tho pillotherium, an animal about
the alto of a black hear and described
as resembling a rodent, which .was
In Its heyday between the years
2,998,084 and 2,498,084 B. C.
The skeleton la the only completo
one of Its kind In existence. It was
found In Colorado by an expedition of
scientists, headed by Walter Granger,
associate curator of the department
of vertebrate paleontology.
The find Is the result of a twenty
years' hunt by the museum's scien
tists, who have never lost confidence
In the belief that such a skeleton ex
isted. Fragmentary pieces of the pll
lotherlum have been unearthed be
fore and these are In the Yale collec
tion. The pillotherium had claws not
unlike a bear's.
