PETRIFIED WOOD FROM A
PREHISTORIC FOREST IS
FOUND NEAR THIS CITY
It seems that absolutely nothing
over produced from the ground has
not been produced in the Cottage
Grove country. It is also probable
that the Cottage Grove country was
producing long before any other
part of the world started.
Tho original fig tree from which
the flapper Eve fashioned her first
gown was found here several years
ago. Two of the leaves were miss

Now it has been discovered that
a petrified forest is buried under
the hills to the northwest of the
city. Ed Connor, who has a ranch
on top of one of them, frequently
digs up chunks of wood whilo doing
his plowing. It is evident that the
samples so far found, if the trees
of prehistoric ages were of tho saino
size as those of today, aro from tho
upper portions of tho trees, indicat
