The stone weighs 2,700 pounds and is shaped not unlike a pyramid. It is 42 inches in height and 48 inches arounl the base. About six inchea of the stono showed above earth when it was found. U is generally supposed that this meteoric Stone fell on a night last snmmer when the occupants of a near-b> bouse wore a-vakenod by a rumbling and hissing noise. At the time no cause oould bo assigned for the phe- omenon. Tho stone lay buried In be earth until recently when it was discovered by a gang of tile ditchers. Mr Fox ordered tho curiosity carted obwlght. He has just notified the State University at Champaign of his discovery, and the university faculty members have slgnilled their intention of coming to BOO it.
