PBIPING, Jan. 29.-- Tho Peking man is "without question th-o most Important known link In the whole Tjrdken chain of human ancestry The dis- coverore aro to bo congratulated. The layman can hardly wax enthusiastic about that b-holl of brown bono. It does not seom eo different to untrained oyoa from any otbor ekulL But It is difficult for a ecicntifit to discuss it without using superlatives. Science h-as now for tho first timo a very primitive human cranium which is complete; one in which th« bonee aro In the-ir original position!', uncruehod, not even distorted^ When .one thiults of th almost pitiful fragments o£ other primiUv-o human cranium which is complete; ono in which the bones arc In thoir original positions/ uncrtiehod, not even distorted; when oue thin lie of tho almost pitiful fragments of other primitive human skulls whir h have been etudled for so many weary hours, this superb specimen Beems like an om- ba r roes men t of riches. It may he the most ancient type. It is the first of which the { eologlcal ago and position aro positively known, It Is the only ono whicb was studied from tho moment of its ·discovery and removed by trained observers. There has been much guess-work about all tho other very 'primitive finds. Of the Java Ape Man, for instance, we hare only tht skull cap. Of tho I'lltdown Man considerably more of tho skull, Init all of it badly broken. Different scientists have restored theeo specimens according to their own ido;i«. In every caso hitter controversies have arisen. One man said the brain .capacity was eo much. Another contended he was all wrong. Tho IHeraturo ou the subject is enormous. Iu a short tlmo, Dr. D ividson Black, Canadian scientist, will tell us exactly ·what was tho brain capacity of tlio Poking Man, He will make a. cast ol" tho interior of tho skull From study- ing this perfect reproduction o£ tho i brain, ho will know just how far on ' t h e road fo human intelligence tho Peking man bad gone. Tho swelling in the forehead promises interest ing results. Already tho Poking Man had begun to think. j Not only will this discovery furmtili much new information as to] tho progtoss of 3iunmu evolution, but it will settle many disputed poinis. Ifor instance, tho association of the apelike jaw of (bo Piltdown Man with tho skull fragments gavo riso to a scientific controversy that raged for yearn. U is rather satisfying lo find that Ihe Peking Man had a similar jaw. · It tends to confirm several theories Which aro Important. During tho lawt decade, there has bcon a strong tendency to piwli man's ancestry farther ami farther hack into tho remote past. Some scientists now 7)eliove that tho humou tstem i« rooted in tho early part of tho age of mammals. The Peking man lived iu tho -very Vgin- ning of tho ico age. Already at that remote- period he had advanced far along tho road of human development. That means that tho ancestral stock from which lie sprang had started long ago, certaiu'fy In tho early Fllocone, possibly in the Miocene. No geologist likos to assifrti a definite term of year* to these remote poriode. Kstimates ot time are too uncertaiau. Ono molhofT which has rfcontly found wido acceptance would put the beglnninug of the Miocene period at 19,000,000 years ago. Another Uieory which the Poking Man tends to support is tho central Asian origin of tbo human family. Thle is particularly satisfying to mo because tho central Asiatic expedition was organized to test that, theory. Tho Poking Man is a long way from 1 being the raiseing link, if otio muet use that unsatisfactory term. Ho fa a missing link, but tho remote progenitors of man will be found iu much older strata. Tue exact placo is un,certain, but I am convinced that it will be eomewhuro on tho Aniatlc plateau. Dr. Black and Dr. Grabau (A. W. Grabau, formerly o£ Columbia University, now in Pelping 1 ), believe that Chinese Turkestan fs th-o moat probable spot. I favor Mongolia. It is only by intensive exploration that tho question can bu settled. I,'for oua, confidently oxpo-ct t h a t continued -·JXplorationH of tho Chou Koutien dtsposit will reveal skeletal parte. Thoro ie every reason foi hope. The specimens from the cave aro t?o beautifully preserved that it will T» strange if other bones aro not bronght to light. C. B.

Two thousand five hundred men were killed last year iu mine accidents. Fifty per cent oC that number have been traced to the fall o£ roofe and fall of coal; 25 per «'out to haulage accidents and from 10 t 15 per cent to explosions.
