The story of the standing
stone forests of Wyoming, for-
ests older than the surrounding
rocks themselves, constitutes
one of the strangest tales of our
Western wonderland. The fa-
mous petrified forest of Arizona
:jmay be the best known, but it
tells no such story as do the fif-
teen adamant forests of the
canyon of the Yellowstone,
grown one on top of the other,
and revealing the growth of the
dense vegetation of the early
world, of terrific volcanoes in
eruption, and of chemical meta-
morphosis on a gigantic scale—
natural phenomena of millions
of years ago.
The visitor to this fantastic newed, and the second forest,
region may view these sub- the stumps of which are now
merged forests, standing upright seen a short distance up the

FIFTEEN PETRIFIED FORESTS
STAND ONE ON TOP OF ANOTHER
Erosion in Yellowstone Park Canyon, Wyoming, Reveals Growths
Millions of Years Old, Each in Turn Having Been Buried
Under an Avalanche of Volcanic Debris.
teen, as you view it today from
the floor of the canyon, was com-
pletely buried under the masses
of falling ashes and pumice.
The trees were then soaked
by silica-charged waters and the
air being excluded they suffered
no decay, but were preserved and
slowly transformed to stone.
After the first forest was buried,
quiet was restored for a suffi-
cient length of time for the vol-
canic material to be reduced to
soil, and for a second forest to
grow. According to the geolog-
ical evidence as shown in the
rock strata, the roots of this sec-
ond forest must have actually
entwined among the topmost
branches of the original forest.
Then volcanic activity was re-
spread over different areas, but
fifteen forests standing one
above the other, each represent
volcanic deluge. Such tremen-
dous processes were repeated
during a vast period of time un
history. Along the precipitous
and almost perpendicular sides
of the Yellowstone Canyon,
where the river during the latter
ages cut its way through tse
mountains to a depth of two
thousand feet, may be seen the
trees of these separate forests,
material had been showered over
the land by the volcanoes and no
fewer than fifteen forests had
grown and were entombed one
above the other.
Finally the volcanoes ceased
their activity, quiet was restor-
ed, man came into possession of
layer after layer, like the bands the earth, and the growing for-
in a gigantic chocolate cake, ce-
mented into the volcanic debris
which in turn overwhelmed each
growing forest where it stood.
In the long, long ago, accord-
ing to the geologist, the high
rugged region of the Yellowstone
Park was a low, flat country,
only a little above sea level, with
a climate as nearly tropical as
that of Northern Mexico. A
magnificent forest covered the
area, through which roamed the
gigantic beasts of the early
world. There were no men. Vol-
canic eruptions then burst forth
with tremendous energy and this
ests of today appeared. The dis-
integrating action of frost and
rain immediately set in and cut
the great Yellowstone gorge
through this mountain, in the
heart of which may be read the
story of its origin, millions of
trunks, roots and branches hav-
ing been submerged by these
stupendous volcanic inundations
and converted into the most
beautiful and hardest of agate.
Many of these trunks, standing
on the slopes and steeper hill-
sides, rise twenty to thirty feet
high and are covered with lichens
and blackened and discolored by
forest, the lowest one of the fif- frost and rain.
School’s out at last! School’s out at last!
The days of grinding toil are past;
And mother’s heart beats high with joy;
She’ll have her little girl and boy
At home with her. She used to fear
Their brains might wear out, disappear,
From grinding on the problems they
Went to the mat with every day.
But now, that they are out of school,
All she need think of is the pool
Where Son goes swimming. He might be
Seized by a cramp sometime and she
Not be there to save him from death!
At thought of that she gasps for breath
And her heart knows a thousand aches;
And Sister might get bit by snakes!
Or one might get caught in the swing
And choked. She’d heard of such a thing.
Or tumble from the fence and break
Their necks; or wander to the lake
And be swept far out from its shores
In leaky boats, sans sail, sans oars.
Tis their vacation. Mother’s when
They’re safely back in school again.

TEXT BOOK CONTRACT
HELD TO BE VALID
The Supreme Court held un-
equivocally last week that the
text book contracts of December,
1922, are neither void or voidable.
This means they are also held as
valid and binding. The books,
therefore, adopted 18 months
ago will be put to use in the pub-
lic schools beginning next term,
after having been held out by
the action of State Superinten-
dent Marrs for one whole session.
An attempt was made on this
date by the State Board of Edu-
cation to consider ordering books
for next term and Mr. Marrs in-
formed the Board that the law
authorizes him to make the esti-
mates of books needed and money
available, whereupon action was
deferred until July 10, when the
calculations will be ready. An
immense bill of books will have
to be purchased under the
Court’s decision and the appor-
tionment for the support of the
public school for next session will
be curtailed accordingly. The
exact figures will be known soon.
This ends the litigation in the
State courts, unless Comptroller
Smith should adhere to his an-
nounced determination not to
draw warrants to pay for the
books under the litigated con-
tracts unless a court orders him
to do so. Then, too, the man-
damus prayer against Mr. Marrs
was only to have him- send out
requisitions for the 1928-24 ses-
sion, which is over. Other com-
plications are possible, especially
since the Federal District Court
held the contracts void.
Dodging the Issue.
Mr. Flubdub was a trifle close,.
However, he fell in love with a
lady and persuaded her to marry
him. She was said to be a very
capable manager. The honey-
moon being some time over, she
approached her husband one day
with extended hand. He seized
it and attempted to kiss it.
“Now, John, don’t try to dodge;
the issue,” said the lady firmly.
“I want $10.”
