The first and only human imprint  ever found in anthracite coal was  uncovered by Michael Siucavage, a  miner at the Eagle Hill colliery,  near Pottsvillc, Pa., the imprint of  a "man's foot.' Fossils, of snakes,  ferns, etc., have been plentiful, but  this is the fiist evidence that prehistoric man was in existence in this  country during the formation of the  coal beds. -The imprint, 4it is estimated, must have been"made 10,000  yearsago: Sincavage,-not,appreciating the value of his find/dumped  it in an ordinary coal wagon after  he had '"shown it to his fellow  miners.
