By Garrett I*. Scrvi.ss
"Recently our science teacher
told us something about fossils. She
told us they arc found in rocks,
sometimes whole skeletons turned to
stone, and sometimes all that is
found are just footprints. Being
very much interested, I went to the
library, but could find out no more,
so I write you."—Sarah F.
You pay me a great compliment,
and I wish I could deserve it, but I.
too, am dependent on teachers and
books; although everybody, of
course, can add to knowledge by
thinking about it.
Let us think a little about what
you have been told, and have read,
concerning fossils. They are found
buried and embedded in rocks, and
their appearance shows that they
arc the remains and the marks of
animals and plants which were once
alive. How. then, did they get in
and under the rocks?
To answer that question we must
first consider what kinds of rocks
the fossils are found in. Upon ex
amination we discover that they are
only rocks which have been formed
by the solidification of mud, sand
and such other materials as col
lect at the bottom of bodies of
water. These are called stratified
rocks, because they lie in layers
or strata, and can be split up, or
separated, as if they were lloors
piled one upon another.
Land and Water Fossils
Wc conclude that when the ani
mals and plants whose fossil re
mains and tracks are found in
these rocks, were alive, they must
either have inhabited the water
which then flowed over the places
where the rocks now lie, and have
been buried at its bottom, or they
must have dwelt on land which was
later overflowed by water and cov
ered with deposits of mud and sand.
It is not difficult to distinguish
Ugtween the fossils of creatures
that- lived in water and those that
lived on land, and they are often
found intermingled because they
were brought together in certain
places which were once the shoes
of lakes and seas now no longer in
But another question arises: How
does it happen that fossils are found
in rocks which form hills and moun
tains, far from any sea or lake,
and at elevations thousands of feet
above sea-level? To this the reply
is that those hills and mountains
must be composed of rocks whose
original state was that of mud and
sand collected in thick deposits at
the bottom of water, that the fossils
found in them must represent ani
mals and plants that were buried
in those deposits, and that at a
later time some convulsion of the
earth's crust lifted them all up into
highlands and mountains. Another
branch of geology than that which
deals specially with fossils will tell
you astonishing facts about the rise
and fall of the lands of the globe,
the invasions and retreats of seas
and the crumpling and fracturing
of the earth's mighty shell, as if it
were the surface of a hall of drying
clay. But let us stick to the fossils.
There are half a dozen different
sorts of fossils. Sonie consist of the
bones or shells, or a portion of the
bones or shells, of ancient animals,
which have been preserved in the
hardened rocks that were mud
banks when the anima's were
buried. Others, particularly plant
fossils, are carbonized remains of
the original vegetable forms. Coal
is that kind of a fossil. A third sort
have literally been turned into
stone skeletons, since the substance
of the bones of the animals or the
stems of the plants has been re
placed.*'pajticle for particle, by min
eral matter which exactly imitates
the original forms.
How Ages Arc Fixed
A fourth kind of fossil consists of
a mould of the original animal, the
latter having entirely disappeared,
leaving only a cavity of its own
shape in the hardened rock. This
cavity has sometimes been filled
with other material. Then there
are fossils which like the Siberian
mammoths and the amber-bedded
flies of tho Baltic coast, have been
entirely preserved, not only in form
but in substance. Tho mammoths
have been cold-storaged, so to
speak, while the flies have been
embalmed. Fossil tracks, of course,
represent only the impressions made
by animals walking or crawling
over wet sand or mud- on the
beaches of ancient lakes and seas,
or the shores of now vanished rivers
and swamps.
By careful study, and the com
parison of the same kinds of strata
in different parts of the earth,
geologists have been enabled to. as
sign relative ages to the various
stratified rocks, and thus to find
out the order in which different
species of animals have made their
appearance in the world. The'
strata are very much broken up in
consequence of the convulsions that
the slowly cooling planet has suf
fered, but yet it is possible to ar
range them in a progressive order,
the deeper ones being the older,
firhile the upper ones are compara
ively recent.
Names have been given to the
successive periods and ages repre
sented by the principal statiflca
tions, which may be likened to
the pages of a book, lying with
Its title page downward. The fos
sils are like pictures on the pages
and the earlier in the geological
book a fossil-picture occurs the
more ancient must be the tlmo to
which It belongs.

"Big Six" Living in a Gas House Over
There May Not Return to Open Season
Cincinnati, Jan. 2.—Captain Chris
ty Mathewson of the United States
Army may soon be homeward
bound from Germany. In a letter to
a local friend from Hendicourt,
France, he stated that he did not
know when he would be released or
whether he would return to the
States in time to resume his duties
as manager of the Beds. He has
been working very hard over there,
and may be sent over into Germany
with the American forces. His head
quarters are in a gas house.
Matty, who is quite a golf player,
says that he would like to see some
of his friends over here trying to
-set-out of the shell holes around his
camp with the aid of the trusty nib
lick. He has had no time for golf
or any other sport since he has been
over here.
The following letter from Mrs.
Matthewson, forwarded to President
Herrmann, will give the fans an
idea of the work that the former
Red leader has been doing since
peuco was declared:
"In reply to your letter of Decem
ber 16 I have had letters from Mr.
Matthewson, dated as late as No
vember 26 and mailed in Metz. He
is very well now; had a light attack
of influenza soon after his arrival in
France, but recovered rapidly after
eight days in the hospital. He has

Texas, to some place in Florida. Ine I
high cost of training at Marlin j

Jeff Smith Knocked Out
Billy Kramer in Lively
Bout at Philadelphia;
Jeff Smith knocked out Billy
Kramer at the National Athletic
Club, Philadelphia, yesterday after
noon in the third round of the wind
up of a sensational boxing show, ev
ery bout of whlc. f . could really be
called a glove fight. The first round
between the fighters was even. In
the second round Smith brought the |
blood from Kramer's mouth with bald
punches, and when he went back to
his corner Billy was in distress. In
the third Jeff dropped Kramer with a
left hook to the jaw. When he got
up they boxed a few seconds, when
Smith landed a hard right over the
heart arid Billy went down again.
He was slower getting to his feet this
time, and then Smith, stepping to I
him, drove another left hook to the
jaw, sending Kramer down. He was.
in such bad shape that Referee Tom
my Riley stopped the bout and
Kramer's second carried him to his
corner, as he was unable to get up.
In the semiwindup, Jimmy Mc
j Cabe, who-looked like the best boxer
! who lias been seen since the days of
j Jack DcmpBcy, outboxed Paul Samp
son in six savage rounds. Sampson
was taller and looked to be twenty
pounds heavier than McCabe, and he
was full of fight and after Jimmy in
every round; but MeCabe was cool,
and, watching his chance, would
block Paul's blows and then send in
j a hard punch to the head or body.
He partly closed both of Sampson's
eyes, but he could not stop the rushes
of Sampson, who kept coming for
more till the final bell rang. Mc-
Cabe was entitled to the victory, but
Sampson made a great hit with the

Italian Boy Was Soft Mark
' For Champion Benny Leonard
Ring dispatches from last night's
fray between Benny Leonard and
Puul Doyle, at the Olympia, in Phil
adelphia, say that "Doyle was on his
feet" at the finish. According to the
accounts he must have also been on
Leonard's feet and part of the time
on the audience. Leonard, who is a
real champion lightweight of the
universe, did not have to extend
himse f, and it looks n>w that the
only way to find a real contestant for
this prodigy, is to get one from
Doyle, a New Y'ork Italian, was
supposed to be very good, but he
was so scared as he climbed in the
ring that the fight was all gone from
him before he started.
If there were any football scouts
on hand it wouldn't be the least bit
surprising to see Benny coaxed into
going to college. The exhibition of
broken field running and footwork
ho gave wtiile cutting corners at top
speed to head off Doyle was bril
liant, to say the least. We don't
know where Doyle was going, but
Leonard always managed to head
him oiT and make him stay in the
ring. Perhaps if Doyle hadn't been
as frightened as a jackrabbit one hop
ahead of a coyote that hadn't eaten

Bill Clymer Looms Up
as Dave Fultz's Rival
New York. .Tan. 2. —William J.
Clymer (Derby Day Bill) Is being
boomed as a candidate for the presi
dency of the new International
League. John H. Farrell recently re
signed from this position and his
successor will be elected at a spe
cial meeting here next month. David
L. Fultz, former president of the
Players' Fraternity, was first in the
field, however, and is said to have
the pledges of five or six votes.
Clymer is through as manager of
the Louisville Club and is anxious
to return to the International. He
has been mentioned as Dan How
ley's successor as manager of the
Toronto club, a Job he filled accept
ably several years ago in the old
Eastern League.
for a week, lie miglit have put up a
better bout. As it was, his main am
bition seemed to be to still know
what day of the week it was at the
end of the sixth.
Narrates one observer: "Leonard
finally got his joints eased up a bit
in the second and Doyle got on
speaking terms with the floor of the
ring when ho stopped one of the
champion's right hooks by placing
his jaw very obligingly right in front
of it. The canvas evidently looked
familiar to Doyle, for he wanted to
remain near it and took eight sec
onds before getting up. Then it be
came a procession. We are not quite
sure about it, but we think Doyle
was on his way to climb the posts
at the corners of the ring several
times during the remaining part of
the tight, only to have Leonard in
terfere with his gymnastic inclina
tions." 1
Toward the finish the champion
almost had him out. Leonard sailed
in with a volley of left and right
uppercuts and hooks that came so
fast Doyle bobbed around as if he

army mules, but he weathered it
somehow and was just about able to
stand up at the finish.
