During the past year there has been a general lallmg'off of railroad revenue or earnings, although the traffic returns, snow a very considerahle increase in the volume of freight haultd. The reduced tariffs for the leading lines operating in this state did not go into effect until five days prior to the close of the fiscal year 1884, and the effect of those reductions appears for the first time in the reports of the year ending June 30t 1885.

The discoverer of the gigantic exticnt sea turtle found near Fort Wallace, in Western Kansas, first observed the large bony shields projecting from a bluff near Butte creek. They were carefully taken out and brought to Philadelphia, where the restoration was made. The fore flippers alone were nearly five feet long, while its expanse frcm the tipof one ex tended flipper to another was about seventeen feet The question may arise, how did this sea-turtle become buried in in a bluff in the state of Kansas? A nat ural supposition would be that Kansas is the bed of a former ocean, and so it is. Ages ago, in what is called by geologists the Cretaceous Period, that part of the world was the bed of a great sea, in which the great turtle swam, together with other monsters of curious shape and appearance. Gradually the crust of earth was raised, the water fell ...
