Denver, Col., June 17.—Creatures
resembling frogs, but unlike them in
that they are whitish in color $nd
have no eyes, were discovered in a
sandstone bluff three miles west of
this city by a truck gardener. While
digging i<i the bluff he uncovered a
number of cells, in which were soft,
mushy appearing balls. When these
were rolled out they proved to be

opinion that mudbeds existed ages
ago where now stands the sandstone
bluff, and that a chemical process

imprisoned the reptiles.
