These products were refined and smelted at the Kissinger Barite and Lead Works, at Kissinger Station, on the Frankfort & Cin. R. R.

The best preserved portion of these remains was a fragment of the lower jaw containing teeth. It will be noted that there is a pronounced north and south trend to these veins. SOILS.

The best soils of the area are those bedded on the various members of the Lexington Limestone, and in particular those bedded on the most phosphatic of these.--the Woodburn. Where typically developed--in the stretch of country lying between Versailles and Midway--these soils are very deep, loose textured, dark red and highly phosphatic. The silicified fossil, Columnaria halli, may generally be found weathered out in this soil. The second class of soils found within the area are those bedded on the Cynthiana Formation. These are yellowish-red in appearance, less pervious to moisture, less phosphatic and in general less fertile than those in the first class. They show some tendency to wash on steep slopes.
