John Kreisler has a curiosity in the way of a petrified sack of salt which he fished out of the river below Guttenberg last week. It is one of the ordinary 5-cent size sacks and it hardly seems reasonable that it would become petrified from remaining in the water. But nevertheless it originally was a sack of salt as the knot and mesh of the sack is plainly discernable. The thread also with which it was sewed can be seen distinctly. Mr. Kreisler values it quite highly owing to its being somewhat of a freak in the line of petrified things. – Elkader Register and Argus.
