Buenos Aires, May 25—The La
Plata n^useum declares a fossil has
been discovered in northern Pata
gonia which is one of the most im

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

Three Children Lose

the Sweetwater river, 82 miles south
east of Casper, when the bank ease

they were sitting and precipitated
them into the stream. The mother
and two older children jumped from
the car and were rescued.
The drowning victims were Gladys

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.

Peasant of Today Might Have Stepped
From Ancient Carving—Now
Haa.First King Since the

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

to center local thoughts mostly on
dally bread-winning.
"Superficially Egypt seems a large
country. The eye sees Its color spread

*For the third time Europe took a
hand in the affairs of Egypt in 1798

Pyramids. The British drove the

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

"After the long reign of the Phar

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

province of Turkey, which controlled

Calumet is made under such exact
ing conditions packed in such a scientific
manner, that its leavening strength and purity never
vary. It retains its original strength for months
after leaving the factories.
When you tip the can to get the last spoonful,
you know your baking will turn out all right—the last
spoonful is the same as the first. This uniform quality of
is cause for its big demand. Housewives
know they can depend upon the results obtained—
that climatic conditions or temperature cannot de
teriorate its positive leavening power.
When you buy baking powder remember these facts—that
a uniform leavener means bakings that do not vary in
quality—that Calumet is uniform.
A pound can of Calumet contain'. full 16 oz. Some baking powders come in
12 ounce instead of 16 ounce cans. Be sure you get a lb. when you want it.
