to be Chinese, thus tending to bear

hieroglyphics were similar In many re
spects to certain symbols now In use
by the Chinese. He declared the words
"sun," "city" and "eye" were clearly
depleted. Mexican anthropologists who

made and more evidence obtained.
The pyramids of San Juan Teotlhua
can as well as those In Cholula, In the
state of Puebhi, are among the oldest
marks of primitive habitation to be
found In the republic. They stand ns
colossal monuments to peoples whose
history was as obscure to the conquer
ing Spaniards In the sixteenth century
ns to presciit-dny historians. Because
of their general construction, some au
thorities believe they are the handi
work of the Egyptians, who In some
mysterious manner crossed the seas
and denoted their plnces of permnnent
habitation with these stone and cement
structures, which nre even larger tbnn
the most famous pyramids of Egypt.
