Cincinnati. In this city, tuo homo
of President and Mrs. William H.Taft,
thoy nro indulging in lots of interest
ing gossip about tho curlier years of
tho notable pair tho years when
Taft was still a slmplo Judgo iu tho
courts at Cincinnati, and when, if ho
had any presidential nspiratlons, he
minded tho maxim that "no man can
mako himself president," and kept his
hopes carefully to himself.
For exnmplo, it is a plcco of nows,
unknown to many, that tho llrst lady
of tho land wus at ono tlmo a school
On Walnut Hills, a Buburb of tho
Queen city, Just a door or two from
Peebles corner, where car lines di
verge to cast, west, north and south
.for other outlying suburbs, a llttlo
church stands In a bit of lawn, well
back from tho street. Two or threo
old silver poplars droop nnclcnt
limbs down on tho chapel j othorwlso
it is left nlmost to caro for itself.
When tho biography of tho Tafts
comes to bo written, however, it will

distinction of having engaged a futuro
first lady of tho land to teach.
As ho tolls tho incident, it is as fol

"Miss Herron had charge of tho pri

Miss Horron, at tho timo, It Is said,
was a bright, intellectual woman, ono
who was not content, aftor her gradua

play tho socioty girl. She did not need to

Miss Herron was looked on by hor
sot ob a very intellectual girl.
Sho and porhaps hnlf a dozen other
young women and men got up what
thoy cniled tho "Cotcrlo" or "Salon."
Ono member of this was hor sister,
Maria Herron. Another was Miss

It was In theso meetings undoubt

Important Discoveries Made by
English Scientist.
Mummies, Pottery and Weapons
Which Date Back Perhaps 7,000
Years Unearthed Under
Old Inca Cemetery.
Now York. Ono of tho most not
able dldcovcrles regarding tho early
history of Peru has recently been
mado by Howltt Myring, nn English
antiquarian, who arrived In Now York
recently on his way home. Ho had
2,000 8peclmeus of pottery nnd wea
pons of tho ancient Peruviana.
Romalns nnd relics of tho early In
habitants of Peru, which aro said by
scientists to date from 4,000 to 7,000
B. C, wero found by Mr. Myring un
dor an old Inca burying ground when
ho was exploring In tho mountains
about about 200 miles Inland from
Lima. The bodies In tho burial ground
woro found to bo In an oxcollent stato
of preservation, tho hair, skin and
clothing being preserved by tho sili
cate on tho soil.
Whon the bodies wero exposed to
tho air tho bones nnd skulls crum
bled Into dust barely giving tho ex
plorer tlmo to tnko photographs of tho
mummies. Each grave contained tho
romalns of food and glazed clap jugs
with two handles and a cover with a
long, tapering spot, which wero filled
with n liquid supposed to havo boon
a wlno of somo kind.
Tho - ast of tho features of these an
cient Peruvians resembled tho Mon
golians, with a scattering of Indlnn
and negro typo, according to tho dis
coverer. Tho warriors could bo eas
ily distinguished by their great wood
on war clubs renting on tho left nrm
or tho huge, copper-headed battlo
axes beaten out from tho puro metal.
Ono chief had a long copper needle
driven through his skull.
Pottery plates with double bottoms
hidden In which wero ancient coins
of gold nnd silver, woro found in somo
of tho graves. Mr. Myring said
scientists could got nn idea of tho
great ago of theso by tho corrosion of
tho metals. Tho bodies wero nil fully
clothed in embroidered garmcntB of
fluo texture, showing that tho peoplo
had tho samo bollcf as tho Incas In
tho after llfo whoro tho good wero to
havo all tho luxuries and tho wicked
to do all tho work, so tho scientists
All tho specimens of pottery woro
artistically designed In tho shapo of
raon or animals and tho glazo was as
porfect as tho day It was put on, prob
ably about C.000 years ago. Tho an
clont Peruvians, excelled In tho art
of making pottery, especially In tho
firing nnd decorating. In addition to
tho pictures of men and animals,
many of tho specimens wero decor
ated with Chlneso dragons and weird
looking fish roBombllng mermaids,
and sailing craft ltko junks.
The most valuablo portion of thiB
discovery of antiquities, according to
Mr. Myring, consisted of tho groat
urnB, somo of them six foot long and
uo heavy that it roqulrod three men
to carry thorn. They wero found bur
led besldo mummies, and tho majority
of thorn had tho features ot tho dead
man or woman delicately carved on
olthor tho upper part of tho urn or
in a solid stand beneath. Tho tocos
on tho urtiB wero all of dark brown
color nnd glazed as smooth and hard
aa a billiard ball, as if thoy had Just
loft tho hands of tho pottor.
Tho discovery of tho remains of a
prehistoric peoplo has created conoid
orablo lntorest in Poru. Mr. Myring
gave soveral specimens to tho Na
tional museum in Limn, nnd, it is
understood, will donato other speci
mens of tho pottery to tho British
museum in London. Tho rest ho will
ndd to his private collection at his
homo In Park Lane, London, which
contains rnro objectn from all parta of
tho world, collected by tho owner in
his wnnderlngs In strango InndB.
Tho specimens wero snipped from
Calhio direct to England by tho long
sea route via the Straits of Magel

taining tho most valuable pieces of
pottery, engraved In gold nnd silver
and decorated 'with smnll emeralds,

that Kb peak was vislblo ami that It
was throwing out a volume of steam.
Tho natives even said that soon aftor
the appearance of tho island tho

from tho eratera on tho Hogostop
Islands came to an end.
"Boglnnlng about March 1," Copt.
