Colllna remembered that back In 1S73 soma hunter who wera croaalng the swamp tn dry season dropped a match Into the grasa and thua started a fire that burned deep Into th ground and raced until It waa drowned out by th ralna In the fall. Th place of the fir la marked by a atnk hoi to - day. i Recently Colllna took soma of th deposit to Boston and New Tork and exhibited It to peat experts In those cltle. who pronounced It a very fin grade of pur bog fueL Th experts became deeply Interested, and when he returned to bla horn h began to receive order for sample.

This process which coats the brlckette with tar exuding from the prat ltelf. Is romewhut expensive.

Th discovery of rood peat deposlta around Indtanapolla calls attention to the fact that Indiana sooner or later la to come to the front aa a peat - producing Ftate. It may ba aeveral decades, but this seems almost certain In the days when fuel of other kinds becomes high In price or scarce In quantity, aa It haa In Europe. 'Large parts of the Kankakee swamp territory In the northern part of the State are peat deposlta, ' containing pure peat of the highest grades. There are other large deposits elsewhere In the northern part of th State. In dry years reports coma, from these parte that the "earth la on fire," and often these Area continue for weeks In fsct. until the fall ralna drown them out.

Norton, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who ar taking th lead In studying this problem of future cheap fuel aupply ta this tountry, will probably come to Indiana'1 to Investigate her depoalta. A aum of ' $100,000 baa been aat aside, for ascertaining the extent and location of peat deposits In this country. Many regard It aa the future cheap fuel, and it Is thought that the cost of manufacturing It can be reduced to lass than 1 a ton.
