Nature's Painting. In the past few weeks the Re- porter has recorded several inter- esting items, chief among which was the finding of the elk antler in Davidson creek. Note these candidates for the new museum While at the quarries not long since in search of fossils the writer picked up a curiosity. On the broken surface of a large slab there appears a specimen of na- ture's painting. There is a beau- tiful array of figures closely re- sembling a forest of ferns or trees. Just what it is and how it was formed is what is bothering most people who have seen it. Step over and inquire about it. Another specimen on exhibition is a small slab with glacial plan- ings, also a couple of little "nig- gerheads" with planed surfaces showing the reverse of the glacial action. The specimens were picked up in the south quarry. It is all very interesting.
