iiitf cacti , whoso long , keen daggers 1
fancied wore capable of resisting even
the elements. Directly In front , with
its inasbivo , irregular outlines , rose a
high HiuiO.slono mesa ( lablo land ) that
from Its peculiar situation In an open
country looked as though in ancient
ngos it had been carried on the bosom
of a gigantic iceberg , which on sud
denly dinsolving loft it ti rugged , barren
nnd precipitous mass of rock , sitting
there alone. Indiana perhaps there are
now that could easily indulge their
miporstitlous fancies to such : ui extent
as to bollovo iv certain watchful spirit ,
who over had an eye to their well-being ,
caused this particular inosa to spring
into its present location , in order that
it might ntlord a natural fort for the
btifuty of their ancestors , for which
purpose it was evidently used. From
directions received from settlers there
K < abouts I rocogni'/.ed in the giant walls
and towering chlTs the objects that in-
duri-d n lonely voyage , over a rough un
inhabited country , and which , together
with other features tire known here as
the ruiiiH of MonUv.uma. After riding
around , the base , the distance of about a
mile , in search of u trail or break by
which I could inako the ascent by ani

dared lead a horse , I dismounted and
instituted all further explorations wnne-
times on foot , but frequently on all
Scattered around the valley , at the
b.-tbC of the mesa wore numerous old
vuiits , the disordered remains of large
fatono structures that , yielding from the
accumulation of soil above tln'in , long
ago tumbled into decay. .Judging from
the dilllculty one must experience in
reach.ii' , ' the more uiiimpregimhlo cit-
dal on tin- summit , I should infer that
lliL"io lower abodes were occupied
cither by the people during their in
tervals of pcauo , or that their origin
dates posterior to the erection of
the others. Stiil another theory
worthy of acceptance regarding
them would bo their utility in
fahelteriug such live stock ns tho-e aboriginal
riginal people possessed. Although un
acquainted with any history relative to
the origin , customs or avocations of the
A/tecs I can , from practical observa
tions , safely ah < * umo them to have been

Kvcty result of their labors remaining
at the present day , even though shat
tered and rendered incomplete by the
inroads of time , bears indisputable evi
dence of the vast power of phyhical
force ncce-sary for the continuation of
such durable nnd pretentious stone
buildings , while each structure remain

of a deep lire place , the cap-stone of

old Mexican settlers have found a num

ruins it is reasonable to suppose
them to be the instruments
Used in cutting or chiseling
the rocks. Tlie hatchets are made from
a hard while or light blue Hint of the
same nature as wo lind in the ordinary
Indian arrow-head. What tools were
used in shaping those is not made very
satisfactorily apparent , but the gen or'-
ally accepted theory is , 1 believe , thai
they were formed by similar pieces ol

by the hand. Going into a deep , rocky
canon that penetrated on an incline
into the main body of the mesa , and the
three sides of which , after entering
about one hundred feet , wore smooth.

a small spring of water that tillorded
but a very feeble How indeed , which
oo/.ed out of n small crevice between the
boulders. The liquid was quite cool ant
refreshing , howovortluugh heavily im-
pregnatea with iron. About the spring
the water had formed a soft , bandy mud
in which were sunk a number of deei
tracks , showing , conclusively , that
those timid creatures had found this
solitary haunt , where they came , no
doubt , to enjoy its quietude and drink
unmolested , of the water.

lined nnd much used trail , Itemnants
of this pathway , which of cour&o load

Under a projecting ledge , near Iho
ummit , nestled n small house , which ,
from its position , I took to he a sentinel
or look-out post. It certainly was an
unlinprognnblo structure , as two walls
forming the back and one side were
part of the main mountain , just as na
ture had fashioned them , straight and
solid. One amnll aperture barely wide
enough to admit u man , answered
for both door and window. The interior
walls were plastered oyor quite smoothly
with a line , clinging mud , and cemented
Into the wall on one side some inches
from the roof wore short , straight frag
ments of a peculiar wood that appar
ently was ns sound as the day placed
there , which must have been nt least
GOO years ago.
The view from the little window was
varied and grand , the elevation being
sufficiently high to bring miles and
miles of dark , burnt lava beds into fight
on one side , and long sloping , sandy
valleys on the other , and year after
year perhaps , a watchful , keen-eyed
sentinel sat in this small , rock-bound
room anxiously scanning the surround
ing country for signs of the enemy.
The place had a very dry and musty
odor about it , ( us though the inclosed air
was lauon with the breath of dim tradi
tion , a circumstance which called to
mind , in a strange , wiord way , the
mountain-backed domicile or a long-
robed monk or world-dispising hermit.
The tumbled and shattered remains
of buildings scattered around
the broad , level summit formed
a scene both wild and
picturesque. In some instances
only parts of an ancient edifice had col
lapsed , leaving one or two tall , grim
walls that stood inanimate sentinels
over the ruined pUo. Largo mountain
rats scampered in nnd out among the
rocks , nnd eagles have their nests hid
den in the dark secluded nooks. Frag
ments of pottery , the gla/.e on which
time has not worn , are scattered quite
numerously about the ground. The for-
mer'Thvellers must have been experts at
pottery-making , as the specimens found
are superior in finish to that made by
existing Indians. Mo-tt of it is striped
with vnri-hued colors , red and black
being the most conspicuous , With the
aid of a pick was unearthed an excep
tionally large piece on which , portrayed
in black..wore the outlines of a gigantic
bird , with legs so long as to leave part
of them ( this is merely guess work ,
however ) , clinging to the remaining
portion of the vessel and buried no
doubt beyond recovery. The outer
edge of the musii curved into a rude
circle , and arounu the entire
circumference the distance of
about a mile a high mnsssive
wall built of small stones once stood , to
defy advances from an enemy. Part of
it yet remains and part htis fallen hun
dreds of leot , into the yawning abyss be
low. Pinon and cedar trees' have
sprouted , grown and decayed upon the
ground once trod ab the lloor of a
family mansion and oven since the fall
of the walls.
It scorns almost incredible that on
this desolate mount , where nothing
breaks the silence but the screeeli of
wild birds or the mournfulomtnoushowl
of a hungry covoto , a colony of human
beings existed and made the giant
rocks ring with their activity. All
now is quiet and tomb-like , tall , rank
vegetation grows upon the family
hearth , and the graves of. men ttnd
women are destined to remain forever
hid to mortal eyes and are covered per

On tlio Governor.
The Now York Tribune's Washington
correspondent relates the following of
ox-Lieutenant Governor Brokmoyer , of
Missouri : "When Thomas T. Crltten-
dsn was to bo inaugurated as governor
of Missouri the senate chamber was , of
course , crowded with people. Mr. Urolc-
meyer was in the chair. As the hour
for the ceremony drew near expectation
among the .spectators was at its height ,
.lust as the hands of the clock indicated
the hour the doors of the senate cham
ber swung open and a pompous door
keeper in a deep voice announced :
'Mr. President , the governor of Mis
souri approaches. "
Lieutenant Governor Brokmeyor
looked up la/.ily from the piece of paper
on which ho had been scribbling.
"Veil , let him como right along , "
said ho , "dut'a what we're here for. "
The roars of laughter that greeted
this an noun cement some what in torfcred
with the solemnity of the occasion.
There were u number of Indians at
the state capital. .IcITeroon City during
Governor Urokme.\er'3 stay there.
Ono day some one informed the bar
keepers at the hotels that they must not
sell any liquor to the Indians because
there was a federal law agaitibt it. That
evening Governor Brokmoyer strolled
into the Madison house. There was anew
now bartender behind the bar. Gov
ernor Brokmoyer rested his elbow on
the counter and called for some whisky
and water. The barkeeoor looked
closely at the dark skin and straight
black'hair of the strangnr for a minute ,
and turning his b : ckon him said :
'Go on , now. You can't get anythin
here. "
"What's the matter with youV" said
the governor , rather warmly.
"We don't .sell liquor to Indians. "
"Why , you tain fool. I'm a Dutch
man , " said the governor , angrily.
"Perhaps you are a Dutch Indian ,
but , all the hiunb , you can't get any
liquor here. " And lie did not.
Poor Miss Antlinny.
Miss Susan I > . Anthony was one of the
callois upon Governor .1. B. Forukor ,
says the Chicago Herald. The vener
able female siitlragist desired to inte
rest the magnetic Ohio governor in her
life work of woman suffrage and desired
toeciirc his assistance in prcbcnting
an independent resolution in favor of
suttrago to women before the conven
tion. The governor , however , was
tired and excited. Ho had made a
speech ami had been lioni/.ed on that
account. He was , therefore , a great
man , and ho imperiously refused to see
the venerable lady who' had. done him
the honor of a personal visit. As .Miss
Anthony , not in the least abashed by
her treatment from the youthful apostle
of republicanism , swept'from the room ,
an acd Ohioan , shaking bis Mead sig
nificantly in the direction of the precoc

words , ' 'Whom the gods wish to destroy

Development of a Small Potato Patch.
Fifty years ago , says the Pittsburg
Dispatch , Ignacio 1 ne/ lived in a little
cabin on the bank of a creek in Santa
Clara county , California. Ignacio kept
a pig and raised just enough potatoes to
support life. There was land enough
lying around loose out of doors to raise
ship "loads of potatoes , but that would
have required work and Jgnacio never
suspected that providence nut him hereto
to work * So he rolled his cigaritas
and watched his few plants grow. Potato
tate patches like Ignacio's wore called
' jnilpas" in the Greaser dialect , and
Spanish law permitted the governor to
issue grunts to the holders of milpas in
order to protect thorn from the cattle
barons , who were in the habit of
driving their herds across the
country and devastating little
farms that might be in the
way. So Ignacio asked for a grant.
The Alcalde looked at his inilpa , and
found it so small that in derision ho ne-
seribed it in his " "
report as a "milpitas ,
or little potato patch. In a facetious
spirit ho called t ho ditches "crooks , "
anddosuriljed | the lines as running from
a certain tree to a point on a creek ,
from one creek to another , etc. Gov
ernor Michael Toreno approved and
icsued to Ignacia Inoa grant for the
Rancho Milpitas , and Ignacia was pro
tected from the arrogant vaqneros and
their lowing herds. When the terri
lory came into the possession of the
United States this country agreed to
protect the rights of all landholders.
Ignncio's grant said "from creek to
creek. " The facotiousneas of the Al
calde was not appreciated , and Inez
milpitas of two or three acres grow to
the Knncho ' Milpitas of 18,01)0 ) m-res. and
was BO 'patented under the laws of the
United States. The heirs of Ignaeio ,
the cigarita-rolling Greaser , became
wealthy hidalgos and their daughters
were sought in marriage by Gringo ad
venturers of enterprising spirit.

The late Jadios Freeman Clarke by
his very tolerance and broadness of
thought , caused the only secession that
his church has ever experienced , lu
1845 ho wa& bold enough to exchange
with Theodore Parker. Ho had no
sympathy with his theology. Mr. Par
ker himself said that no two men in the
Unitarian body differed more in this
respect , bnt Mr. Clarke said that ho
communed with men on account of their
character , not on ncconnt of their
creed ; and as everybody agreed that
Mr. Parker was a religious man , Uni
tarians had no right to exclude him. A
small number of the church seceded
and established another society , which
was afterwards united with the Second
church. A few years ago , however ,
Mr. Clarke reallirmcd the principle pn
which ho exchanged with Theodora
Parker by inviting representative
clergymen of all the prominent denom
inations orthodox , Methodist , Baptist ,
Episcopalian , Koiimn Catholic , oto. to
preach in this church on successive.

cardinal principles in their respective
creeds. _

During the Creek war , when General
Jackson was suffering from u bad cold ,
his ollicors improvised a tent for him ,
covered with llakes of hickory baric ,
under which he slept comfortably. Next
morning a drunken hanger-on of the
camp came across the tent , and , not
knowing who was in it , gave it a kick
that tumbled the structure over. A3
the angry old hero struggled out of the
ruins the toper cried out , "IIollol Old
Hickory ? Como out of your baric and
join us in a drink. " The general could
not himself help joining in the laughter -
tor at the incident. As he rose and
shook the bark from him ho looked bo
tough and stern that the spectators gave
him a hearty "Hurrah , for Old Hick
ory ! " and the name clung to him over

He Wouldn't Do It.
A good story is told in the St. Paul
( Minn. ) Pioneer Press on Superinten
dent Nash , of the railway mail service ,
who has just tendered his designation.
Fault has been found with nim becnuse
his desire for an otllciont service led
him to be very slow in making remov
als. In the early part of his senatorial
career , Bate , of Tennessee , called upon
Nash with a friend to ask the removal
of a republican postal clerk. "What
charge have you to make against him ? "
asked Nash. "None , except that he is
a republican , " said the senator : "I want
his place for a democrat. " "There is a
rule in force hero , " said Mr. Nash ,
"that no clerks are to bo removed ex
cept for cau < o , and I can not comply
with your wish , senator. " Bate turned
in a da/.ed way and walked out , and the
fncnd from Tennessee , who had como in
to bo impressed with a sample of sen
atorial power , whistled and then said :
"Well. I'll be1 d - d , Bate , if I was a
United States senator and couldn't get
a republican postal cleric fired out I'd

But he has no idea of giving up , and if

was a critical period in his illness. Mr.
Thomas lay in what was believed to be
a semi-conscious state , and the gravest
fears were expressed by his physicians.
One of them asked Mrs. Thomas to get
a damp cloth and bring it to him. He
said he wanted it just as thin as posi -
blo. Mrs. Thomas brought the cloth
and the doctor , in a low lone of voice ,
thinking the patient could not hear ,
said :

Mrs. Thomas replied that it was , when
tlio hick man beckoned to his wife to
come to his bide.
"My dear , "lie whispered , almost inaudibly -
dibly , "if you want something very
