AN UNKNOWN RACE
Traditions of the Hohokam, Who War
the First Americans.
In the beginning the Hohokam dwelt
In the laud. They were the Grst Amer
icansbefore the pilgrim fathers, be
fore the Spaniards, before the Indians.
They were the unknown people who
lived in the United States so Ions ago
that their name is utterly lost. In the
southwest old tribes of Indians like
the Zunis and Xavajos know nothing
of them save by vaguest tradition.
The Pi mas and Papagos of southern
Arizona, who occupy part of the land
that once was theirs, know that an
other race possessed the country long
ago. More they cannot tell. They
and their fathers for hundreds of
years have seen what we see the
scanty remnants of ancient villages.
For the inhabitants of the villages
they have no name except the Iloho
kam that is, the "unknown."
The modern archaeologist describes
the implements and pottery of the
Hohokam. He cannot do much more,
for their houses nrc laid low. Except
in a few places, such as the rains of
Casa Grande, near the Gila river, the
very walls have vanished. Casa
Grande itself may lie the work of a
people later than the main lody of the
Hohokam. AVe can never know the
whole story. Yet little by little we
may learn its chief facts. Arizona
and the adjacent regions are full of
ruins unknown to scientists and even
to the people who live within a mile
of them. They are so nearly obliterat
ed that there seems at first sight little
to repay study.
Archaeology begins the task of recon
structing the past. Geography must
finish it. Modern geography enables
us to determine the mode of life which
must prevail, especially among primi
tive peoples, under given conditions of
physical environment. If we can cor
rectly picture the geographic environ
ment of the nohokam we may leani
much of the history of our earliest fel
low countrymen.-EHsworth nuntlng

SOULS AND HOUSES.
You will confer the greatest ben
efits on your cry not by raising its

it is better that great souls live ra

slaves should burrow in great houses.
The Courage of Life.
The two virtues that help us along
most in life are trust and courage.
Apart from the tragedies invited by
sin and violence and self indulgence,
a large part of our trouble comes from
anxiety, distrust, apprehension. It was
not all frivolity that dictated the an
swer of a youag girl who. lelng urged
to prepare herself for a profession oi
a definite work, responded: "I'm not
going to look ahead and worry. I can
do a lot of useful things. I can mend,
and make salad, and amuse children
and be patient and economical, and
help people to enjoy themselves, and
I don't believe nice girls starve." Cour
age and faith are always assets. Even
if life goes back upon them and fails
to come up to exi)eetations the prac
tice of these virtues is just that much
to the good, and we have at least not
lived in the evil moment until it ar
rived. Harper's Bazaar.

Greatness and Smartness.
