BONE HARPOONS FOUND IN
ENGLAND ARE PREHISTORIC
Antiquarians Verify Fact of An
' cient Life in Britain.
London. The fact that prehistoric
humans existed In the British Isles
has been verified again by the reports
of two learned committees just pub
lished In the Anthropological Journal,
Manchester. These reports absolutely
vindicate the authenticity of two bone
harpoons which were found beneath
the peat at Holderness, Yorkshire.
One harpoon is 4H inches long; the
other, 10 Inches. Their interest' is
great, as from certain peculiarities
they are now proved to be the work
of Maglemose men so called from
Maglemose, Denmark, where many
extraordinary relics of very early
man have been uncovered. The age
of the Maglemose man may be any
thing from 10,000 to 20,000 years B. C,
when, the North sea was dry, when
land connected Denmark with York
shire and Scotland and when the Dog
ger bank was covered with forests.
Leslie Armstrong of Sheffield, a dis
tinguished anthropologist, read a pa
per on these harpoons at tlie Hull
meeting of the British association last
not however, to show contempt for the
birth control advocates, Tut is intended
to hold up the mother of a large family
as a person of distinction In the vil
lege. The old native Idea was to de
spise the mother of many children.
The officials set about to change the
prevailing thought and the recent cen
sus report would tend to show fflat
they have started In the right manner.
Colonel Murray's report on the indus
try and thrift of the natives explodes
another theory of the life of the
South seas as being one long rest be
neath palm trees, with : dark-skinned
maidens hovering in the background. '
This impression evidently is quite In
correct, and even the tendency of the
native toward a little cannibalism and
head hunting has given vay, under
the Influence of the British officials, to
more peaceful pursuits of farming and

September. Mr. Sheppard, curator of
the Hull museum challenged their
authenticity, declaring them to ' be
forgeries not more than thirty years
old. Subsequently, they were careful
ly studied by two expert committees
whose reports have now , appeared.
They were compared with four har
poons from Kunda, Esthonin, which are
unquestionably of Maglemose date,
and were proved Identical .with thtm
in type, color and chemical condition
of the bone. The lines of cuttltjg
were also. Identical.
The two harpoons are declared gen
uine, and Prof. Sir W. Boyd Dawkins,
one of the greatest living authorities
on anthropology, writes : '
"I have no hesitation in saying that
the charge that, they are forgeries U
absolutely without foundation."
Further confirmation of his view Is
afforded by the discovery of a very
similar harpoon under the peats at
Bethune, In France. "
The harpoons are in the possession
of W. Morfitt of Atwlck. : Similar har
poons, with other bone Implements of
the Maglemose period, have been

relief commissioner from North Caro
lina this summer and will join the
party which will investigate condi

next year, announcement was made
by Colonel George H. Bellamy, state
chairman for this great humanitarian
Mr. Gillespie will said from New
York July 4 on the Leviathan and
will spend 10 weeks in Armenia, Per
sia, Syria and Constantinople, and
other smaller countries of the Near
East', less the time required for ocean
travel. He was appointed to this
post last year but at the last minute
his church board refused to grant him
leave of absence after it was too late
to arrange for an alternate.
Mr. Gillespie's first stop will be at
Constantinople, where the Near East
relief maintains a number of refugee
camps, orphanages, rescue houses and
hospitals for the unfortunates who are
caught in. the maelstrom of .Turkish
hate for Christianity and are unable
to find refuge in other countries
owing to immigration red tape. These
people are kept alive solely by the
efforts of the American people through
the Near East relief.
Mr. Gillespie will then sail for
Batum through the Black Sea and will
go from there to Erlvan, the capital of
Armenia, which' Is at the base of his
toric Ararat. From there he will go
to Habriz and from there to Bagdad
