About the middle of July, 1907, while engaged by the Nebraska City Commercial Club in examining the geology of Nebraska City and vicinity, the writer was called b the farm of Mr. C. B. James to look at a bed of what was supposed to be fire clay. This proved to be a Carboniferous deposit of stratified micaceous sandstone, interstratified with a fine compact shale, both of which are yellow in color and very fragile when wet.
