been one of ancient America's unsolved mysteries Who the Moundouirders were, whence they came' and .why vanished constitute a hidden chapter the past It is already known that they had a civilization high to many respects But the discovery of coins in the West Virginia grave is believed to be the first proof of anything re- semblmg a nionstary system among them. The size of the skeleton, which that of a man about eight feet in height ts even more signincant. It true that primitive peoples always worshiped physical perfection. But eight- footers, judging from science's findings, findings, were by .no means uncommon. Persistent study has failed to determine determine whence such people probably came--whether "from the East, or West, from Europe to Asia.

The possum today varies from the size of a mouse to that of a large cat. with a. long nose, ears and tail. ' . , . Naturally it might be supposed that the dinosaurs could have auickly stamped the little possum-out of existence. existence. But it is'likely that'the brainy -animal, after many hundreds of years, discovered a weakness in the armor of- the 'giant dinosaur--that the latter had: little or no. brains. The dinosaur, it seems, didn't tnmK of protecting its eggs. Unlike the ' turtle'of. today, for instance, it didn t hide the eggs in a hole in the ground- .It left them.in the open, assuming, that because it dominated the earth -no other creature would dare interfere with the GS35TS- r But the possum probably decided ' that stealing the eggs would serve two purposes: it. would provide food ana also gradually wipe the dinosaurs out of existence. . ' . ' · Scientists believe that this bit. or burglary on the pa'rt of the possum. probably went on for millions of years until at last there wasn't a, dinosaur of any fcind left.
