Abilene Reporter: The papers
and magazines are full of pictures
of men who "look like Abraham Lin-
coln." Yes, indeed: and Mud Hill
has a close resemblance to Mount
Well, it's a human falling. It's a
great deal easier to be like than to
be. Being like is seeming and seem
ing satisfies the superficial. Look-
ing like Abraham Lincoln costs
something, perhaps, but not much.
You have to be born with some of
the outward characteristics of the
man and attend to little matters like
hair and dress and whiskers. Then
you can get stared at and get your
name in the public prints. But you
probably could do that if you walked
on your hands on your way to the
office, or wherever your job happens
to be, if you have any. Notoriety
Is dead easy. And yet there are
rafts of people who never learn the
cheapness of it. They want to get
married in a Ferris wheel or adiving
bell or a Chinese josshouse. They
go on a vacation and come back
with a whole pack of smudgy-
looking photographs of scenery
more or less obstructed by "me" in
the foreground holding the donkey
by the forefoot or posing before the
monument or sitting on the edge
of the canyon. If people could learn
the value of being and forget the
sheen of seeming a whole lot of
things in this old world would
straighten up. The other end of
that bit of common sense is not to
judge the seemer by the seams. —

slight discoloration on the stone.
Dr. Stensio found the internal or-
gans of the fish perfectly preserved
—likewise the brain, nerve channels,
arterial canals and even the intri-
cate structure of the inner ear. This
is unusually in a fossil so old.
"Even though I have made only
preliminary study," Dr. Stensio de-
clared today, "I have made discov-

Chic&go^-.w-, I'l,—With the death'
recently ofthe let victim of the [
"grudge" will of Major John
Hooper Lyon, hero of the war of
1812, distant heirs of the Major
have begun a search for the hidden
wealth he is believed to have left on
For more than 100 years accord-
ing to the story, relatives of Major
Lyon looked forward to the time
when some of them could claim the
600 acres on Manhattan Island and
the $80,000, with accumulated in-1
terests, said to have been granted to !
the Major by Congress for valor in;
the war of 1812.
Major Lyon, according to attor-
neys for Chicago claimants of his
estate, was ostracized by his brothers
and sisters when he returned to his
home at Rome, N. Y., after the war
with an Indian bride. Angered
at their attitude, Major Lyon is
said to have cast off his family, and
in his will decreed that his estate
should be kept intact until after
the death of all his brothers
and sisters and their children. The
last of the Major's spurned rela-
tives, a nephew, is said to have died
I four months* ago.
Claimants for the Major's estate
j said they believed the residue of the
$80,000 cash is in some New York
vault and that the 600 acres on Man-
hattan Island lies beneath a section
| of New York's famous skyline.
