Editor Biilley, referring to the Covery tit t\i6 skeletons in the mound near the Call bridge, gives a sketch of the remains of the mound builders in Ohio o! great intercut: ft happened that the writer wag born in one of the greatest fields of research of this kind in the United Slates in the county of Licking, in Ohio, and the queer mounds that excited childish curiosity as "In* dlan mounds" have since revealed many valuable and curious specimens of a past age that delight and furnish food for many an hour of speculation. Tho great Alligator mound was within a mile of pur boyhood home and have hotird father — who is now a man nearly four score years of age— say that it looks now very much as it did when he first saw it when ton years of ago. A bold bluff or bill Inaccessible on two sides, over three hundred feet high, stands in a Hold in one of the finest val- loya that dote the face of Ohio's beautiful state. At Its foot and to the west lies the lovely little hamlet of Gran- vllle, famed and praised in Ohio's history as an educational town. Viewed from tho top of Alligator mound, it would be hard to find a fairer October scene than thut which greeted our eyes three yours Hgo when looking ovor this valley. The "Alligator." is built of ourth and Is today possibly five feet high. Tho body is 100 feet long and about 16 foot wldo, tho head nearly round and about 10 feet in diameter; measured across the fore legs it Is 40 feet, about the same across the hind logs, and the tall, which is coiled something like that of a cat, is 160 feet long and about throe feet high by four feet wide. Tho similarity to an alligator, llzzard or crocodile is very close with the exception of tho proportions of tfie tall; alligators' tails have degenerated since the Mound Builders' time. When the first settlors came to that country— as old settlers say — there was a reddish brlcky substance on. tho head of the Alligator that showed evidence of fire. Gravel and pieces of coal were there in profusion as evidences of that agency, but the lapse of time and the continued uso of the hill as a sheep pasture for more than 70 years has washed away all traces of this nature now. What was Its object, and how many were employed in its building? The best theory that has ever been advanced is that it was originally a plnce of worship, sun worship or fire worship. A giant watch tower as It were, whore, gathering under the blue vault of heaven, our ancient frlonds met on the "brow of this hill" to offer up their adoration to the dying god of day. An unobstructed view to the west, iip the valley of Ruo- ooon creek— a rippling brook that gently meanders along the valley — Is obtained from this hill. And as a watch tower and place of sacrifice perhaps, countless thousands toiled and lived, hundreds, nnd perhaps thousands of years ago. The Leni Lenape, or Delaware Indians, have a tradition that long years ago their forefathers came from the big water on the west and after traveling many moons came across a vast river and encountered a peaceful pastoral people' who -lived in villages. Then the warlike Delawures drove them far to the south, took their lands and country and occupied it until they themselves — divided into numerous tribes after many years— were driven farther east across the Alleghany mountains. This tradition has been woven by our modern archaeologists into a fairy tale of how the Aztecs and Toltecs are the descendants of this peaceable people, and many relics of the bygone race taken from their tombs correspond so well with relics of the same kinds taken from the ancient Aztec villages of Mexico and Central America that a great deal of color is »iven to the " fairy Uile," and some of them come near proving the accuracy of the theory, About six miles east of Alligator mound is the larger and better known ancient earthworks at Newark, now used as the Lick' ing county fair grounds. These have been written on so often and by such able writers that little can be said that is new. Yet there are points that we have never seen in print. The embankment is about 10 feet high, 10 feet wide on top and 85 feet at the bottom now. It is circular, about a mile in extent. At the northeast are two mounds of earth a hundred feet high and about that distance in diameter. At each extremity of the unfinished circle they are about 50 feet apart at the base, The ditch from which the earth was token to make this embankment is on the inside of the circle which precludes the idea of a fortification. In the center of this vast circle is an eagle 150 feet across the wings and 100 in length built of earth, that is now five Ceefc in height, and my grandfather has told me that when he first saw this curious pieces of work, over TO years ago, trees three feat in diameter were then standing thickly oa the ground, and the aborigines— « few of whom still lingered therd— had no tradition or theory as to m formation. Gravel and sand to the depth of a foot was Wd over the top of S embonttinent, and the ancient to ba *een oa the ly » mile flfctont, ll *» * WTel *** fcak power .was this of gravet removed that of iffke« fttmi i foot tefieath tfae earfatt* lbt|J« »i imp6trtmiiiJ6 ItleY M1 fOfefe Mtu nittt TO tffUKdfl Sp, oj pick 61" '*- Bfling tjpib«Sfeaflcientiilinj JHia\t all n&te ft ineei t»f ttlai «tef ibe fa<»e, Yet the t>nlf ffilea tninci> Inftl Bft*e eve* beefl discovered that were worked by lite aforigifiei Afelw ibe itfti« ef ifortt c&r«iifla» Copper aeedlefl, bodkins aflcl awl« are coHinion, wbile ibe oflly wpper mlnefr known to bafe beeB Worked by & pf6" historic face fttts those at Ontonagon, Norlberti Mlchlgafi, ¥hes4 all give proof that a vast scope of country Wai odce thickly inhabited by a race of partially civilized people and as the saiiie tools, ittjplemeots aDd oraatnetita af6 found In the ancteet Aztec and ¥ott€c cemeteries, it is pretty strong evidence that the two faces Were at one time the same, and gives color to the Delaware tradition that they drove a peaceable people out of the fertile valley of the Ohio. Many mounds of the ancient people can be found all over the state of Wisconsin that beaf slightly differ* ent characteristics, but enough remain to prove that the people were allied to the Mound Builders of Ohio. It Will be of Interest to know the particulars of the mode of interment of the ancient Iowa Mound Builders, and particularly whether mica is found over the face as in Ohio, or a flat stone bearing the evidence of fire on the breast, as in the Wisconsin mounds. NEW SCHOOL TEACHERS CHOSEN. The School Board Uealtis to Select a Corps of Teachers for the Coining Yenr. The school board mot Saturday evening to select a corps of teachers for the ensuing year. For the main building, beginning with the primary room, they chose Miss Cramer, Myrtie Putsch, Olive Salisbury, Cornlo Ingham, Bird Hotelling, Tena Wallace, Miss Campbell, May Hotelling, Mrs. Horton. In the high school room it was decided to put a principal and assistant under Prof. Carroll. Miss Coate, who has fulfilled the duties of both, is undecided! about remaining, and no selection has been made. Miss Jessamine Jones was chosen to teach drawing, and MissRan- dull, who held-the position of teacher of music a year ago and who left it to go and live with an aunt in Milwaukee, Was chosen to that position. The salary of each is $30 a month. It is expected to put three teachers in the new school building. Miss Hattie Stephens is the only one thus far chosen, and she will have charge of the building. Her work as a teacher has been very successful and her new position will be one of added responsibility. Her salary was raised to $45 a month. Of the new teachers Miss May Hotelling is the only one not known well in Algona. She is a sister of our present teacher and has taught in the Mason City schools four years. .She comes with the highest recommendations. MISS HOTELLINfj'S HAED EIDE. Travels From Mason City to Whltte- more Through the Mud for Her Father's Funeral. The Mason City Republican notes the death of A. H. Hotelling and gives items of interest to his friends here: His wife, who was visiting at Clear Lake, was notified of the injury in time to take a night freight and was. able to reach the side of her husband' two hours before his death. He was. conscious until near the end. His daughter, Miss May Hotelling, who is a teacher in our city schools, did not know of the affair until Sunday after- death had taken place. As no trains- ran that day she started across country with a livery rig. Mr. Noble drove ber as far as Algona. It was a fearful ride of seventy miles through the mud and on such an errand. Mr. Hotelling came to Mason City in 1866 and was married in 1866 to Miss- Nellie Tuttle of Clear Lake. At one time he resided on a farm west of the fair grounds. Recently he has been in the hay business at Whittemore. He was a man very much respected and his friends are deeply affected by his sudden death.
