FOOD OF PREHISTORIC MAN.
girlaiU T.od lu Kkow lln 41, a
Our attention hu rtrrntlr Imn

conducted iotne time ago by Mr. Chii.
White, M. It. C, 8., lately the preildent
of the Itoyol Odontolotlctl Hoclcty ot
Or rat Drltaln, Myi Chambers' Journal.
Upon examining some skulls datlriK
back from the atone ace, he noted that
several of the teeth, although quite
fre from eatlee, were thickly coated
with tartar. It occurred to him that
It would be posalble by a rough an
olyila to Identify any particle of food
that might be embedded In this nat
ural concrete, and so reveal the char
acter of the allmtut partaken of by
prehlttorle man. Dliiolrlnc U' jx
tar Id a weak acid, a residue Wk- left
which, under the mlcroecope.wa found
to conilit of corn huik particles, halre
from the outalde of the husks, spiral
veuels from vegetables, particle of
starch, the point of a flih tooth, a con
glomeration of oval cells (probably ot
fruit), the barbleta of down and por
tions of wool. In addition to this va
ried Hat waa aome round, red bodies,
the origin ot which defied detection,
and many aandy particles, soma relat
ing to quartz and some to flint Theie
mineral fragments were very likely
attributable to the rough stones used
In grinding; the corn, and would ac
count for the erosion of the maatlcat
Ing surfaces, which In many cases waa
atrongly marked. Thla Inquiry Into
the food of men who lived not leia
than 4,000 years ago Is a matter of
great archaeological Intercit,
