many. It differed slightly from the
skull of the cliimpatiz.ee and the
gorilla, but since the entire bones ol
the face were lacking there wasn’t
much to draw reliable deductions from.
Since then savants have decided that
if this skull bone belonged to a man.
he must have been half-witted. An-
other skull bone was discovered at
Spy. in Belgium, in 1890.
"However, this reconstructed skull
has the advantage of being almost in-
tact." He picked up the recently dis-
covered specimen, which lay with a
number of others on a table. "There
are two reasons,” he continued, "why
we can affirm its great age, and one is
the extreme thickness of the skull
bone. We have many skulls dating
front the time of the Homan republics,
and they are much thinner. Only
bones that come down from a hundred
centuries reach such a high state of
petrifaction. Another reason that we
can be sure of its antiquity is the re-
mains ot animals which were discov-
ered in the same stratum of rock.
Near by were teeth of a rhinoceros,
showing that this prehistoric man ex-
isted at a time when the climate of
France was tropical. And this rhinoce-
ros was of a species that hasn't lived
for centuries. This period was also
the period of the long-haired main-
moth and a certain kind of stag.
"The skull's main point of resem-
blance with the human race is the
chin bone." Prot. Bottle pointed to
the skull of a twentieth century
Frenchman. Yon see that this chin
bone comes down from the teeth in
a line almost perpendicular. This is
never the case with any variety of

"This is the most striking point of
resemblance, although there are minor
less apparent ones. In the main, how-
ever. this skull shows a close parent-
age to chimpanzee. You observe the
enormous development of the frontal
hone, the long skull bone which gives
hardly any suggestion of the human
forehead. The distance from the top
of the skull to the nock is much short-
er than in the usual human skull.
And the cavity of the nose is notice-
"Yon will notice in the skull of the
modern man that on each side of the
nasal cavity there are deep indenta-
tions. The expression of tile face Is
due to these perhaps more than any-
thing else. They are always absent

nation of staves, hoops and heading
which is not intended to hold water or
something stronger in fluid form, ipjed

enormous value ot $15,800,253.
The average man would little sus-

year's product over that of the previ-
In distinct contrast to tight cooper-
age stock, which in the main requires
oak timber for its raw material, slack
cooperage stock, particularly staves
and heading, utilized in greater or less
degree most of the commercially im-
portant trees in the country, and for
this reason its manufacture was far
more widely distributed than is the
case with that of tight cooperage
stock. Twenty-one species of wood
contributed to the total stave produc-
lm and beech, in the order named.
Tlte figures disclose an interesting
movement in the industry in the sub-
stitution of less expensive woods for
those which for many years were
drawn, upon most heavily for slack
stare material, but which, owing to
growing scarcity and advancing cost,
are rapidly being displaced. In 1906
elm staves were manufactured in
larger quantities than those front any
other wood, and constituted nearly
one-fourth of (he total production for
that year, with pine and red gum oc-
cupying second and third places, re-
spectively. Last year gum jumped to
first place, pine to second, while elm.
with a falling off of 36 per cent, in pro-
duction. dropped to third place. Beech,
maple, spruce, chestnut and ash fo!
lowed in the order named.
While slack staves and heading pro-
duction was reported last year from
practically all the states engaged in
tlte manufacture of lumber, a consider-
able percentage of the stock, in fact,
is being turned out as a by-product of
lumber, the industry was to an extent
localized, the five states of Pennsyl-
vania. Missouri. Michigan, Arkansas
and Virginia, in the order named, con-
tributed 56.8 per cent, of the total pro-
duction. The distribution of the indus-
try of hoop manufacture is much more
limited than that of staves and head-
ing. and is due primarily to the fact
that this commodity is made chiefly
from elm timber. Ohio led in the
quantity of hoops manufactured, close-
ly followed by Indiana, the output of
these two states forming 67.3 per cent,
of the total production.
