Tha above diagrams, which have beon carefully compiled from actual surveys, correctly represent the prehistoric tracks at the State Prison, which dur ing the past year have caused a profound sensation all over the wrld. Carson people hardly realize hw these tracks are re garded abroad. Iu England, Germany, France and Russia they have ben discussed by scientific men, illustrated 'and mad the theme of debate in nearly every leading scientific school on the globe. Yet right here in Carson one meets scores of people daily who have never taken the trouble to go oat and look at a curiosity that several European savants have traveled across the ocean and spent thousands f dollars to see. They have been so fully de scribed, however, in these col umns that there is little left ex cept t print the diagrams, which tell the ftery better than columns of type. Diagram No. 1 represents a general view of the tracks, with the mastodon's on the left and the man's tracks on the right. Diagram No. 2 is a general view of the human footprints in the lower floor. Diagram N. 3 gives an ex tended view of all that has so far been discovered. Series No. 2 consists of 13 human footprints 21 inches long, and 7 inches wide, going in a southwesterly direction until lo:st in the sandstone bluff :t the south wall, which is 22 feet high at this point. The man had a peculiar shaped foot, and may be said to have toed the mark, he walked as straight as a surveyor running a line. The quarry is now being worked at this bluff, and we may soon ex pect more footprints to be fount!. This series covers 40 feet of ground. Series No. 3 contains lb hu man tracks, IS inches long and 7 wide, going nearly west; with the toes turned out and stepping rather irregular. Series No. 1 h:n 11 track, I ft inches long, goin nearly par allel to No. 2, and cr-nsing No. 3. it covers 40 feet of ground. Series No. t extend over 112 feet of ground and contains 4 1 human footprints IS inches long and 0 Inches wide. Dut " trackd, froml9to2.3, are not distinct enough to represent, the shale being destroyed by carts haul iDg off the rock. Theso tracks are irregular iu their direction, and disappear under tho wwt wall, which is 32 feet high. Series No. o has 15 human tracks aliout the same size as the last ; they are going north -wefterly, and cross No. 5 about 24 feet from the west wall, llird tracks, covering 2$ feet of ground, cross series No. 2, 3 and 4. These are all shown in dia gram No. 2.
