Gigantic Skeleton from the Brooklyn
Institute of Arts and Sciences.
l'lom the Hoclicster Post-Hxprcit.
He rose twelve feet at the shoulder,
wore a' hairy hide und looked like a
haystack with tusks. That was ;t,000
years ago. Now a cluster of club-like
bones Is all that bears testimony to his
life as a free, ponderous rover of the
immense wastes in those dim, historic
days when the earth was young and
man a vague possibility living in trees.
Tho mastodon we call him; and out ot
awe for his supposed Immensity, wo
have enriched the language by an ad
jective which is applied to everything
big, from theatrical productions to bar
gain sales. Tho osseous remains aro
slowly but accurately being fitted into
one another at Ward's natural science
establishment in this city, where a
mammoth or a mastodon is such a
commonplace sort of a thing that it is
treated with little respect oven when
its venerable dignity weighs in the bal
ance. This mastodon was discovered by a
gardener near Newark last spring. Ho
was turning over ills garden patch with
a spade one morning and nearly fainted
when it struck a bone so huge that It
took three men to carry It off. The
Newark savants Immediately decide!
that the discovery was of great value.
Tho yellow journals of tho metropolis
gleefully seized upon it and printed
columns, with pictures of it feeding
placidly or waging combat fiercely witii
a rival. These same, newspapers made
guesses as to UieValW of the skeleton
The average price was decided to be
$20,000. The market gardener at once
began to build an extensive addition to
his house. The real price did not reach
one-twentieth of that amount. The
bones were bid in by the Brooklyn In
stitute of Arts and Sciences. Tlio Ward
establishment received the order for
their mounting. It will bo completed
along In June. The mastodon and the
Tissot pictures may be gazed upon in
the same visit to the Brooklyn insti
tute. They will not, however, occupy
the same room.
It is quite likely that In the imagia
atlon of tho great majority a mam
moth and a mastodon aro two names
for tho same beast. Both nre huge,
both existed In prehistoric days and
both aro pictured in encyclopedias and
stand in rickety grandeur in museums.
But tlio two are alike only in form and
mass. The mastodon is on earlier nni
mal than the mammoth, although a
relative by distant ties of consanguin
ity. Outwardly they were much alike.
Tho modern elephant Is a pretty Talr
representative of them. If he could bo
covered with curly hair, wear tusks
curved like hooks and range over tho
state of New York and tho city of
Rochester In careless ease, the ele
phant would be exceedingly like his
prototype of 300 centuries ago. In point
of fact ho is the modern representa
tive of the mammoth. If it were not
for his teeth, he might be likewise a
close relative of the mastodon. But the
teeth break the chain.
A mammoth's teeth and an elephant's
teeth aro almost exactly alike. They
are flat and oval on top. The grinding
surfaces are crossed by parallel ridges
of enamel which, when a longitudinal
section is made, give to tho upper edgo
a slight wavy outline. The mastodon's
teeth nre totally unlike this. He won
his 1101110 from, their peculiar shape. It
comes from two Greek words, "nios
tos," breast, and "odous," tooth. This
means that tho molars of the mastodon
are shaped like tho breast with conical
knobby caps, which stick up two Inches
or so from tho base of tho tooth, Be
sides this, the mastodon's tusks, simply
elongated Incisors, aro stralghter than
tho mammoth's.
The remains of the mastodon aro
found In nearly all parts of the globe.
He used to roam over tlio forests,
crashing in among the dense foliage,
feeding In solitary masstveness or
lighting until the ground quivered with
his plunges. The .very weight of the
huge creature often proved his ruin.
AVanderliig Into some marshy place, he
would become mired and slowly sink In
helplessness until tho ooze closed over
him, to remain hidden from ken for
11,000 years, when chance should un
cover his mighty bones to human sight.
Tho skelotou of this Newark masto
don Is unusually complete. The vette
brae, great rlng'Shaped bones with
long divergent spikes which held the
huge muscles that supported tho tusks,
wero almost all present. The tail,
which looks like a full grown alligator,
was perfect, The pelvis, eight or nine
feet from edge to. edge, the skull, tooth
and tusks wero In a singularly com
plete stole of preservation. The legs
wero missing and will have to bo sup.
piled by U10 mounters. This, however,
Is not so dlflicult, Leg bones of the
mastodon aro frequently found and
from them may bo taken plaster casts,
which when made up are so like the
real bones that an expert alone can
tell the difference, These leg bones are
huge objects. They look like water
worn, knotty logs, four feet lonsr,
twelve Inches thick, and a hundred
pounds in weight, The measureless
strength of the mastodon may bo Im
agined best when one thinks what
power he inUst have possessed slmntv
to carry liimsclf.
The mounting of the skeleton Is slow
ly progressing. The vertebrae and ribs
are strung upon a heavy Iron bar, bent
to match the curves of the great bock.
As tho legless barrel hongs from tho
celling by chains nnd tackle, it looks
like tho Inverted keel nnd rib's of a
broad-boatned catboat In process of
Among the most Interesting parts ot
this huge skeleton nre -the first few
vertebrae nf the aplnat column, Just
back or tho base of the skull and neck.
Their diameter. Is nearly a foot. From
the top Hho spiky projections as long
again, whose tops make an undulating
curve not unllko the top of a harp.
Farther back these projecting bones
becomes shorter and shorter. Now, be
tween tho tallest of these nnlkcs and
tho base of the skull is a dip norhaps
two feet down. This was filled with
thick muscles und tendons. Their ends
wero welded into tho solkcs so firmly
that tho upper part of!, tho bones is
rugced as, tho broken end of wroucht
Iron columns. These Immense muscles
wero needed to support tho great
weight ot the tusks, which, when their
own mass and the leverage caused by
tllelr jutting length arc taken Into con
sideration, needed all the strength tho
mnstodon could summon to keep them
When tho bones are put In their posi
tion nnd the missing parts replaced tho
skeleton will stand about twelve feet at
the front leg, perhaps thirty from tusk
tip to tall tip. Surmount this with a
bulky layer of flesh, fat and hide, and
one can picture tho hugeness of his
mastodonshlp when he reigned supreme.
Wall Street Review.
New York, Nov. 7. No such excite
ment and demand for stocks has been
witnessed on the New York exchange
since tho boom days of the floating ot
the securities of the new Indus trial
combinations in tho sprln got 1899, as
today kept -all departments ot the
stoek exchange at fever heat of ani
mation and activity. It's rarely in tho
speculative world that the precon
ceived plan of operations, which has
been widely discussed in public, . re
sults to successfully as tho taking on
of long stocks by professional opera
tors for some time past In anticipa
tion of the large demand to follow
the election. The rush today to buy
stocks was so overwhelming us to ab
sorb all the very large selling with no
great effect on prices. In the opening
dealings there changed hands instan
taneously with the sounding of the
gong no less than 13,000 shares of
Union Pacific. S.O0O shares ot Atchison,
6,000 shares of Southern Pacific and of
American Steel and Wire, and of sev
eral thousand shares of a numbbr of
old Important stocks. This was as
near as could bo ascertained by the
usual method of records. The same
stocks sold at the same time at prices
1 points apart and it was believed
that the record of a large number of
transactions was entirely lost In the
feverish excitement of the trading.
During tho early part -of the day,
small Individual transactions had no
place whatever in the trading, when
prices were at) the high level, the
small orders including big lots, began
to make their .appearance. A von'
large business In Americans had been
done In the London market before tho
stock market opened In New York.
Commission houses kept their offices
open all night and took orders which
wore executed in London as early as
3 o'clock, New York time. Foreign
arbitrage brokers in New York esti
mated that as a result of the New
York buying In London and tho Lon
don selling In New York, no less than
150,000 shares of various stocks
changed hands from foreign to Ameri
can owners. The professional opera
tors who have been looking on Lon
don stock for several weeks past,
threw their holdings on an enormous
scale to take advantage or the out
side demand.
The movement in Pennsylvania rail
road was very notable, even In the
day's broad and active market, and
Northern Pacific shared this promi
nence in a less degree. The extreme
advance in Pennsylvania was 316
points. In the industrial department
gains were even more marked, but
tho movement thero was far more
feverish and Irregular. Tho steel
stocks wero in tlio foreground, and
many of them advanced between four
and five points. There was a late re
action In the market pn profit taking,
led by sugar. A number of industrials
reacted between one and two points,
but in the railroads these last prices
were only a fraction below tho bpst,
and tho market was in progress of

Miles and Miles of
Pi-etty Silks
(At Prices Less Than Usual.)
Started the sale yesterday.
The first customer walked away with a silk dress-I
and the materials for several waists.. The next one
took the stuff for a dress. A third one bought three
waist patterns. Thus it went all day.
The Silk Sale lasts until the Silks are sold, which
won't be long, by the way. If interested (and what
woman isn't interested in silks), better drop in today. .
Silks. Music. Good silks. Good music. Isn't '
it a pretty good place to spend the afternoon ?
