THE DAILY ARDMOREITE
PLAN OF THE STARS MADE 500,000
OLDEST RECORD ON EARTH
Its Dlieovcry Proves That Intelligent
Human Dclngs Inhabited the
Earth In That Remote Per.
lod Chilled on Cranit'e.
The oldest record of lmninii oxlM
enco on tlio earth, Immeasurably the
oldest, wis found on the farm of Jn
clnth Mekkler In West llurtoii Town,
ship In this county, Inn week.
This farm Is at the lower end of an
Immense chasm which has been worn
by Crumple Creek, In tho course of
tho ngos, down through the different
strata of rock, nnd It has long been u
fnvorlto resort of scientific geological
Investigators from the peculiar faclll
tloj which It offers for Investigations
along this line.
Lately It was decided by the author
(ties of the township to widen tho'pub
11c highway along tho side of the
creek, and In order to do so u cut had
to he made Into the side of the rocky
hanks to tho distance of some 21 feet,
and while the work was In progress a
class of students from the university,
In chnrgo of I'rof. Cllmpe anil Gran
don, have been on tho ground to study
tho formation of rock.
Thursday afternoon hero was tils-1
covered deep down In tho HtralllUd j
rock, n largo granite bowldir, and Im j
mediately tho learned professor, be-1
came veiy much excltid, for In all '
their experience of geological Invest! ,
gatlon they had never met with such J
n phenomenon before.
Tho stratified formation where the
liowldor was found Is of very great nn- 1
tlqulty, nt least 210,000 yearn, away
back to the time of the llrst Ice Ago.
and to find what might bo called n ,
foreign suhstanco In such strata was
very surprising, but nil this vanished
In tho wonder of the dUcovcry when
It was wholly dug out and rolled to a
place whom It could be examined, for
then It was seen that a space about
two feet square on ono sldo had been 1
somewhat leveled off nnd smoothed '
and that there was carefully chlshd
thorou a plan of the northern heav
ens, showing the North Star In tho
center with tho polar constellations
grouped about It In u circle, for a con
siderable number of degrees. 1
There could not for a moment, bo
any doubt but that tho ancient dweller 1
on the earth who chlse'ed this large
number of excellently executed live
pointed stars on tho bowlder meant
thereby to depict tho plan of the polar
heavens ns It appeared to him In tho j
nights of tho3o long-vnnlslieu years,
years that passed over the earth count
less centuries ngo, for the plan of tho
Btnrs, although unmistakably that of
tho clrcumpolar regions. Is dlffer'nt
from what tho constellations there ns
they are seen nowndays are, exnetly
as they would have been hud they
been seen somewhero between 500,000
nnd COO.000 years ago.
Tho Btars, although to tho unaided
eyo and during an ordinary llfetlmo
Hcemlngly utterly Immovable In the
firmament, aro yet known by astrono
mors to bo In motion, nnd long nnd ac
curate observation, coupled with the
keeping of careful records, has reveal
ed, to students of tho heavens In Just
what direction and nt what apparent
rnto most of the stars aro moving, at
leust as to thoso that aro nearest 'to
our solar Bystem, nnd It would not bo
n task of any especial dlfllculty for
nn astronomer to now draw n plan of
tho stars uud constellations In any
part of tho heavens, either ns they ap
peared r.0O,O0O years ngo, or us they
will appear COO.000 years hence, and,
therefore, allowing for the necessary
cnideness of tho drnft on tho ancient
bowlder, no astronomer vvuld doubt
for n moment but that It It a picture
of tho polar stars and constellation as
they actually appeared something over
C00.0O0 years ngo.
This discovery proves conclusively
that at that Inconceivable remoto pe
riod of tho past thero lived upon this
earth men of sufficient .Intelligence
and power of observation to havo tak
en note of tho apparent motion of tho
other Btars around tho North Star, for,
surrounding tho circular plan of this
portion of the heavens as It then an
poared Is n clrclo of figures unquo
tlouably Intended to represent comets,
with tho nucleus In front and tho
wide-spreading tall behind, flying
around the drawing In tho direction
In which tho stnrs appear to clrclo
about Polaris. It Is certainly a mar
velous dlscorory and dwarfs all other
dates of ancient things Into compara

precepts ho has nlwnys laid down
about his intention to retain elllclent

led to ImOIcvu ho was merely faking
when ho announced theso lofty prin
ciples,' warmly declared former Rep
resentative James Wadsworth of Now
York, who was chairman of tho com
mlttco on agriculture In tho last con
gress. "This Is merely another Instanco of
th purpose of tho president to pun
ish all my friends Blmply becausu 1
differed, nnd wisely differed, ns tlnio
has proved, from him on certain
Issues," continued Mr. Wansworm,
referring to tho removal of Collector
Sanders of tho Western Now York
revenue district. "It is in iimu with
tho unprecedented action of tho pres
ident In refusing to reappoint post
masters nt Danville,, Africa and Ijck
port. Tho Incumbonts of theso offices
discharged their dut cs to tho com
plete hatisfactlon of tho postfflco de
partment, nnd I was practically nskeu
by tho department to reenmmenu
them for reappointment. I did so, but
tho president held up tho papers as
soon ns I wns out of congress. Tho
president selected now men for theso
olllces, men recommended by my sue
cfbor. This was In absolute violation
of the expressed Intention of tho pres
ident to retain in olllcc Rood olllclnls.
"Tho president practically turned
down tho recommendations 01 his
ndvlsont in th0 postoinco dopim
incut, who wanted tho postmasters re- J
appointed becauso tttoy had proven 1
themselves to bo god odlclals. At
the same time ho violated his own
promises to the people: Th whole
thing stamps tho president ns un
reliable a fakir and humbug. For
years lie has Indulged in lofty senti
ment nnd ho violates them nil for
tho Bake of gratifying n petty spun.
It Is apparent that ho intends to
prosecute In n llko manner every
