Oar genial postmaster must have
taken a walk yesterday or he never
ooulc1 have told what was going on in
a certain part of the borough and de
picted it so plainly and in sach a
humorous vein.
It will be remembered that he has
been one of the Board ot Health for
long time and no doubt he took a
great interest in the cleaning of a
certain cellar on Broadway on that
account. It appears that a certain
gentleman hired a man to clean his
cellar yesterday and in it was an
accumulation of years. The cellar
was very damp and everything in it
reeked with moisture.
He says Mr. Dash stood a distance
from the floor on an elevation while
the man rushed or chased the reptiles
etc., to the front of the cellar and
Mr. Dasli caught them on a hook and
hauled them up, and that Mr. Dash
was apparently enjoying his success
ful fishing down in the cellar, as
much as the fishermen out on the bay
were theirs. The first reptile caught
was an alligator eleven feet long and
by looking at its teeth it appeared to
be eleven hundred years old. There
was an old chair which looked some
thing like a mule as it had once had
four legs but showed signs of evolu
tion and had turned from a mule into
a two legged ani-man.
Ther6 were Bigns taken up which,
supposedly, from the formation of the
letters, had belonged to a pre-historio
age and also showed signs of evolu
tion. What they had evoluted from
is not known today, but as some of
the scientists of this borough were
very much interested, they and others
of adjacent towns will no doubt sit in
solemn conclave and arrive at some
conclusion as to the various changes
that have occurred during the loner
period, to cause such a wonderful
Undoubtedly otner cellars in the
neighborhood that have been subject
ed to the same influences, will if
oleaned, disclose more marvelous dis
coveries than the one spoken of.
