Guessing Name of a Curio. Colonel L.
L. Hawkins, who has earned the tltlt
of Father of the Portland Free Museum,
worked hard all yesterday afternoon In
getting the latest addition to the museum
In position. This Is a huge ball of sand
stone, loaned by Mr. George Hill, of As
toria, and weighs GOO pounds. Colonel
Hawkins laid a plank walk on the marble
floor of the City Hall and then rolled the
stone to Its future home by means of a
lever. The acquisition now keeps company
with the skull of Jawbone of a whale,
near the foot of the stairs on the ground
floor, where a neat fur-leggcd table, with
a hole in the. middle makes It look like a
black schoolglobe. While the Colonel wat
puffing and blowing in his efforts to put
the thing In place, a good many guesses
were made by bystanders as to what the
curiosity really Is. One said It must bo
a meteor, another a cannon ball, a third
a petrified squash, a fourth the devil's
taw, and a firth said chestnut, which the
Colonel considers the best guess of alL
A whale's egg and a whale's eye were
amongst the guesses. From a scientist's
standpoint, however, the Colonel pro
nounces It a clay nodule, though he does
not explain what a clay nodule Is.
Both Hands Broken. J. W. Burchard,
who recently fell from the top of the new
dock being constructed at Pennoyers mill,
discovered yesterday, with the aid of a
surgeon, that both hands had been frac
tured by tho fall. Instead of one. He has
temporarily lost the use of both hands,
which are done up In slings, and he has to
be fed by his wife. He blames the fore
man on the pile-driver for not exercising
more caro in the handling of the heavy
timbers known as "cape"," one of which
struck him as he was stooping over.
