Buenos Aires, May 25—The La E Plata n^useum declares a fossil has been discovered in northern Pata gonia which is one of the most im portant in recent times. It is a prac tically intact skeleton of a giant crocodile of the secondary era, which it is believed, was hitherto unknown to science. hTe skeleton, well pre served, was found near the town of Hio Negro, on the river bearing the same name, between strata of red cretaceous sandstone which crop out over a large extension in the upper valley of the Rio Negro and the riv ers Limay and Neuquen. An expedition which spent three months in northern Patagonia, fol i lowing the Rio Negro from the mouth to the source, brought back the cran ium, 86 vertebrae, the ribs, all the leg and feet bones, large fragments of the pelvis, both shoulder blades and a number of small tail bones, which were all in position when the monster was found. The museum says that the skeleton indicates that the auiwal was more than 40 feet long. The expedition also brought back 5,600 vocVh, comprising a complete geologlca lhistory of the region. o Three Children Lose Lives in a River Casper, Wyo..

The mother and two older children jumped from the car and were rescued. The drowning victims were Gladys and Alice, twins, 2 years of age, and Patricia, 6 years old. The latter's body was recovered. Ranchers are assisting in searching for the bodies of the twins. No One to Missing Man Mobridge, May 25 -A final search by friends for the body of Joseph Davis ,a rancher living on Firesteel creek, who disappeared two months ago, failed to disclose any clews as to the fate of the missing man, ac cording to members of the party who have returned to Mobridge. As no body has been recovered and no other trace of the missing man can be found iu this part of the state, the belief is growing that he volun tarily left the country for reasons known only to himself. Members of his family are distracted through worry aa to his fate. o Required to Pay Fire Wtinesses Fees Pierre, May 26—Witnesses called by the state fire marshal or his dep uties for the purpose of making an investigation of a fire should be paid out of the fire n^arshal's fund aud not out of the county funds in which the hearing is held, according to an opinion of Attorney General Byron S. Payne. The inquiry was made by Execu tive Accountant J. E. Truran. It seems that in a recent hearing in Codington county the couaaty paid the fees of the witnesses.

PEOPLE ARE MUCH THE SAME Peasant of Today Might Have Stepped From Ancient Carving—Now Haa.First King Since the .§|olemalc Regime. Washington, D. O.—King Fuad suc eeeds Cleopatra. "When Great Britain abandoned its protectorate over Egypt, and the Sul tan of the Nile country changed his title to king, he became the first king of Egypt since the Ptolemaic regime," says n bulletin Issued from the Wash ington, D. C., headquarters of the National Geographic society. "The old Egypt of millenniums ago Is in many wnys more familiar to the world at large than the Egypt of to day," continues the bulletin. "Pictures of Its great pyramids and sphinxes, Its columned temples and rock-hewn tombs fill histories and encyclopedias and inevitably the reader's attention is centered, not on the problems of toduy, but rattier on the evidences of a dead civilization. "But aside from the fact that mum my hunting was for many years one of the leading private Industries of the country and that now convicts, iastead of building roads, excavate tojubs and temples for the govern ment, the old monuments are merely a. background for a life hard enough to center local thoughts mostly on dally bread-winning. "Superficially Egypt seems a large country. The eye sees Its color spread over a considerable part of the north eastern quarter of the map of Africa, and statistics credit it with an area of more than 3.*»0,000 square miles. But the real Egypt—the habitable part—Is like a cord with a frayed end the nar row valley and flaring delta of the Nile. Except a few scattered oases, most of the rest of Khedive-Sultan-Kin#. *For the third time Europe took a hand in the affairs of Egypt in 1798 when Napoleon won his battle of the Pyramids. The British drove the French out in 1801 and turned the country back to Turkey. In I860 came the building of the Suez canal by De Lesseps, which has given Europe an ever-growing interest in Egyptian af fairs.

Of Its more tluin a third of a million square miles of territory, about 12,000 are estimated to be ca pable of cultivation, and considerable part of this has not yet been tilled. Peasant Like Figure From Carvings. "In comparing the Egypt of today with that of the dawn of history one is divided between wonder at the marked changes on the surface and the lack of change in some funda mentals. The Egyptian of today does not speak his old tongue, but instead, Arabic his old gods are forgotten, and he has—with the exception of a small minority—adopted the religion of Mohammed. But in spite of numer ous invasions, the blood of the great majority of the population has been altered hardly at all. Practically the fellaheen, or peasants, might have stepped from the ancient carvings: they are but a fresh generation of the tnen who dragged the great blocks of stone into place to build the arti ficial mountains of the Pharaohs. "Egypt's resources are almost wholly agricultural, and in the agricultural scheme the millions of fellaheen are the ultimate units. They work long hours scratching the soil with crude Implements, or tediously raising water in skin buckets attached to pivoted poles that the thin stream may save their plants from parching. Taxes are heavy, and it is the lowly fella heen who keep the treasury supplied. "There is little cause to marvel at Egypt's checkered history. A simple reason is that she began early. Here Is one of the earliest places in which man lived an ordered life and left records of his activities. "After the long reign of the Phar aohs Egypt had its Grecian and Roman regimes which brought but few changes. Then in 641 A. D. came the invasion of the Suracens, from which time began Egypt's Mohammedan history. For a time the country was a province of the Arabian Caliphs later it was independent, though still Mohammedan, under the Mamelukes and finally, In 1510, it became a province of Turkey, which controlled it first through a governor and later through a sort of hereditary viceroy or khedive. flnafcees. The V ?, LAKE MADISON •prising of 1HS- against the kliedm Was suppressed by the British alone, tnd after that they controlled finance without assistance. The government w^s in effect Egyptian with British us slstanee and with the nominal sussei ainty of Turkey acknowledged. "When the World war began Great Britain established a protectorate abolished Turkey's suzerainty, deposit the (Jermanophile khedive, and pointed another prince of the family te sultan. The British protectory e is now being withdrawn, but instead of the former Turkish interest belim restored, Egypt is set up as an mile pendent kingdom." CATCHES YOUNG OCTOPUS i lus shows John bi.

FRENCH 'TIGER' ENDS GRUDGE Clemenceau Forgives and Wins Sculp* tor He Sent to Prison Many Years Agin, Biarritz.—Former Premier Clemen ceau, after the unveiling of the statue of King Edward VII of England here the other day, requested to be In troduced to the sculptor. "You have real talent," the Tiger said, "is any of your work In the pub lic museums?" "No," replied the artist, "but there Is a bust made by me in the collection at La Sante prison. Owing to my ex tremist ideas it is the only museum my country ever opened for me. Here is a photograph of the work In ques tion." Clemeuceau took the photograph, laughed aloud, slapped the sculptor on the shoulder and s»ild: "I suppose we were a pair of fools then." The photograph represented a head of Clemenceau sticking on a spear. Maxime Renl del Sarte, the sculptor, a militant royalist in his youth, hitd be come involved in some public mnni festation and Clemenceau, then minister of the Interior, had him sent n La Sante for six months.
