RE-SEARCH AT ASK CAE ENDEDBOSTON MAN GOES HOME In every part of the known world the remains of prehistoric man have been discovered. America is no exception 'to this rule, for everywhere on the western continent are found 'evidences of ancient savage inhabitants in the form of mounds, village and "camp sites; cemeteries, etc. The Ozarks present a different culture to that of other sections of America in many respects, for here are found aboriginal remains closely resembling those, of tfie paleolithic caverns and rock shelters of Europe and Western Asia. Barry county has its share of these, and one of them, the well known Ash Cave on Flat creek four miles below Cassville, has been the subject of scientific research during the past month. On June 28, the Archaeological Department of Phillips Academy at Andover, Massachusetts, established a research camp at Ash Cave, and continued the same till last Saturday, and in these weeks dug out the ash bed in the entrance to the cave, exhuming a goodly nu::.bc:' cf the implements and tools and refuse of the savage men who once inhabited the place. The expedition was in charge of Dr. Charles Peabody, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who is also connected with Harvard University. He was accompanied by his 'daughter, Miss Peggy, and Miss Ella Mulla-ney, also of Cambridge, and Messrs. E. H. Jacobs and Rex. Kilbourn of Bentonville, Ark. Mr. Jacobs came in the capacity of consulting archaeologist and geologist, and Mr. Kilbourn as general assistant. The working force was secured locally, and consisted of "Uncle" Tom Rob-berson, Leo Robberson, Estil Bush, Mr. 'Gregory, Mr. Woods, Marion Black, Allen Bush and Ferrill Robberson. The digging continued four full weeks, and the .result was a large number .of flint and other stone implements, a few bits of very crude pottery, thousands o flint flakes and chips, the refuse from ancient industry, and numerous fragaments of animal bones. These bones were, of course, the remains from savage beastsand all the larger ones had been cracked to get at the marrow, an interesting feature that is found in the bones that are obtained from the caves of the Old World. A singular fact is that not a single bone was found that could be definitely stated as of human origin., The purpose of the expedition was to throw some light on ancient man in America; to help in determining if possible how long humanity has lived on this continent. , The cost was largely borne by Phillips Academy and the specimens will eventu ally be placed in the museum of the Archaeologica 1 Department of that school.
