A fossil elephant skull found near Fallon, Nev., on the Newlands project, was discovered recently by H. C. Candee of that city. Mr. Candee and his family were on a fishing trip and on one of the small islands on the southern side of Lahonton Reservoir they noticed some small fragments of brown colored bone lying on the surface of the sandy floor of the island. Upon further investigation the party found the head of a thigh bone and a knee-cap of a very large animal. Sustained search at that time revealed nothing more than a large quantity of indeterminable fragments.
