Ily 1906 Mr. Ileadnell. accompanied by Dr. Andrews of the llrlilsh museum, had proved that Africa, far from being a continent |»araiiltlc upon Kurope. was a partly dcitrndont. but chiefly Inde- H-ndem. center of a highly varied life, "a great breeding place, not only of animals which subsequently wandered Into Europe, but of animals belonging lo types hitherto unknown." Ib-fme the work of Dr. Andrews bad le-en even begun. Prof. Henry Fairfield Os tKirn of the American Museum of Where the Excavations Are Being Made. Natural History hnd prophesied that the original home of the elephants and of several other great groups would In? found to In* In Africa. These animals. h° (Mildred, In spile of the contrary opinion of science, hnd In vaded Kurope. Asia nnd North Amer ica front Africa. The American museum authorities, so rich In the remains of the great monsters of their own country, could not fail to In- Interested In the Fayum discoveries, nnd Prof. Oslsirn longed in fit out nn expedition to discover. If |ioss!hle, nnd bring back to tho New York treasure-house the Vfrlcnn ances tors o f the vast ereal which once Inhabited tho Amen- continent. In due time the plan lH*canie an ac complished fact; the Kgyptian gov ernment. In tho person of I/inl •Cro mer. gave the American explorers every help In Its power, nnd Prof. On born nnd his assistants went to work. A* their caravnn crossed the desert. It nmused Mr. Osborn to think thnt he was going with enmets. the gift of the western American plains, to bring bark the remains of elephants, which | were tho gift of Africa to all the other continents. At first, the results of the Amerlcnn Museum's search were dlsnp|>olntlng. lint after ten days the explorers were rewarded with the Jaws nnd teeth of the ancestral elephant which the expedition chiefly desired, nnd n fort night Inter they fount! n complete skull of the Pnlaeomastodon. In-long ing to the second since of the evolu tion ol the elephant. A week Inter, the skull of a Mocrlthcrlum (the beast of l4»ke Moerls) enme to light, nnd Mr. Osborn knew that he hnd found the representative of the first distinctive stage In the evolution of the elephant. Twenty-seven species of Innd nnl mals sere discovered by the Kgyptian survey, nnd now several new anlmnln were discovered hy tho Amerlcnn ex pedition. These Include the giant Ar sluolthcrcs. the smaller nnd larger an cestral elephants, the largo and small rock-conles. and certain pig like nnl main. With two exceptions, all these animals were short-footed and slow moving, nnd they hhd a pair of front teeth ns large os tusks, probably for defense against the actively running carnivora of the |M-rltMl. The Araln olthere* were one exception, nnd de fended themselves by sharply ftolnted horns. Two million years ago the Mediterranean bordered on Eocene Libya, and wns Inhabited by whales known as the Zeuglodon*. remains of i which have been found In every part of the Fayum region. These creature* were extraordinarily long and snake like. and were far more slender In IsMfy than any existing whale. Among other discoveries made In Kocena Libya are remains which go lo prove Hint tho Hlrenln. or sen cows, represent nn aquatic off-shoot from the very stork which gave rise to the elephant* This kinship was surmised by de lllnlnvlllc long before Darwin, nnd It has now been confirmed by tho ex traordinary resemblance between tho most ancient tea-cow, the Kotherlum. nnd the most ancient of the elephants, tho MoerUherlum. The scene of the researches. Kl Fay* urn. a name derived from the ancient Kirypilnn word "Phlom." meaning "tho Inke." lies 60 miles south west of Cairo, and Is the fertile alluvial bottom of a great natural depression, or basin, en riched by the Nile sediments, which have inured for ages Into n large nat ural lake of Into geological titties, and subsequently Into the more contract ed laike Moerls of the Ptolemies The brackish lake named Hlrketel- Quitm which bounds the Fayum to the north-west Is the vestigial remnant of these two great sheet* of fresh wa ter. It lies 130 feat below sea-level, nnd receives such n meager overflow from the vast Irrigation system of tho Fayum plain* that It Is constantly di minishing In extent and Increasing In salinity. Tho rich historical associations of the northerly shores of these ancient nnd modern reservoirs begin with tho Palaeolithic flint-makers. They Includo the irrigation works of Ameneinhat I . 7200 11. C.: they cover the rise nnd fall of populous Greek nnd Roman cities, now represented by the ruins known ns Dime nnd Mushlni. Hut far, far back of lhis perlml of man, tho discoveries of the survey on tho north erly shores of these same Inkes reveal the presence of n world of life so an cient thnt the pyramids* seem n* of yesterday, of n period when the Medi terranean shores were HO miles south of their present boundaries, when Mother Nile herself, which Impresses us ns among the oldest of rivers, hnd not come Into existence. Here nnothor nnd much older river system poured Its snndy deposits Into the ancestral Mediterranean, tho nnclont original life of Africa found 11* burlal-placo In tho shifting sands, nnd has lain for perhaps two million of years awaiting the evolution of man, nnd finally tho development In man of the spirit of Inquiry nnd exploration.
