The workmen on the Valley Road in excavating through the high point near the mouth of the Soldier, found buried forty feet beneath the solid clay and sandstone rock, the petrified remains of a tree, the wood and bark of which resemble pine or hemlock. By what convulsion of nature these trees were buried ages ago so deep beneath the surface of the earth, no one can explain, but they show convulsively that the present form and surface of the earth have undergone great changes in some age that we now have no knowledge no knowledge of. – Fort Dodge Northwest
