Last fall while the writer was classifying material for the Cherokee high school museum, Mr. N. Stiles, one of the leading citizens of the town who is interested in geology and history, and who has made an excellent collection of Indian, geological and historical material for the high school museum, suggested to the writer that he thought he knew where there might be a deposit of fossil bones. The writer became interested immediately and accompanied Mr. Stiles to the place in question. After a careful examination it was found that the bones represent a rich deposit of mammalian remains.
