Pits several feet deep and now
partly filled with dirt 'have been
found in the vicinity of Golden
Valley,. Dodge and Halliday, N. D.,
giving evidence of flint mining Op

Dark brown stone, known as
smokey quartz, was the predom

For many years flint weapons
made from smoky quartz have
been uncovered in abundance oh

The greatest single source of

SCAVENGER OF WOODS
JERjSEYVILLE, ILL. The worst
scavenger of the woods is not the
common crow, according to L. E.
Grouppel of Rosedale, former coun

jay is more destructive of song and
