leapt two centuries to evolve, they began
to develop. Por 10 years they expande-i
and grew until. In the rlxlh century, the
golden age of the Maya was reached. Hut
after that their civilisation either co,
lapsed. having run it natural course, or
they wera driven from their homes by a
stronger people. At any event, no dates
later than those of their Cycle 9. toward
the end of our sixth century, have been
found In their old southern cities,
i'natoma of Intereat.
Mr. Morley mentions many of the Maya
customs which are of Interest. They dis
figured and tattooed their faces In ac
cordance with their rellnious beliefs:
suulnt-eye tan striven "for. and the
youths had their faces acalded to prevent
ihe growth of beards. The men decorated
their whole bodies with red paint, and
the women all except their faces, for In
that day modesty decreed that the fare
should he left unpalnted. The women
were chnsla and modest; when passing

In a ret!rl manner. On marriage tho
voung husband was obliged to work for
ills board Ht tho home of his wlfe'a par
enta for five or six years,, but the mother-in-law
saw to It that her daughter fed
him well. The Maya were of a Jealous
nature, and divorces were frequent and
easily effected. Polygamy was unknown.
Men suffered death for adultery, but the
woman's infamy was considered aufficl-
punlshment for her. W idows or
ntdnwero might marry without other cer
emony than partaking of a meal in the
hmiai, of the espoused. It was considered
Improper for a Maya to marry his mother-
law, sister-in-law, or aunt by marriage,
although he could marry a first cousin.
Their hospitality knew no bounds, and
the upper olassep entertained one another
regally. Drinking was so Indulged In at
haix'iicts that the wives ot me
n re n ften obliged to come for
their husbands and drag them home. The
military efficiency of the Maya was of
r- high decree; each c'ty had chosen
roldi-r., supported by the community,
who craaniKed and iltilled all the able
bo'lleil men In time of war. During the
