PREHISTORIC FOOTPRINTS. DIAGRAM NO. 3.
lh Prehl!toric J-'ootpriuts.
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.
