Skeletons Found Indicate That, Race
Of Giants Once Lived on Banks
Of Sycamore Creek.
A prehistoric graveyard on Syca
more creek, where the grade of the
Verde railway passes through,, has
been uncovered by a crew of labor
ers under the direction of Conductor
C W. Corbin, in performing certain
excavations to improve the roadway.
There has 'thus been revealed a
very interesting situation that pre
vailed at some time or another, in
the physical make-up of a race as
is reflected in the massive remains
that have been recovered, and which
are indisputable of a giant type of
humanity that is bewildering to
those of this generation. The skull
of a human is in the possesion of
Mr. Corbin together with a portion
of the "frame, that would indicate
one who in life must have attained
a heighth of at least eight feet.
The sides of the face have been
severed, but when placed in their

and in possession of the arsenal and
powder works nearby.
Madero is relying on the loyalty
of General Blanquet, who has been
summoned from Toluco, 40 miles
distant. But Blanquet has only one
thousand at his command and the
rebels arc confident of defeating him
should he refuse to join the revolt.
The day was marked by four sep
arate engagements of the most san
guinary of which was in fr6nt of the
palace but the most important was
that which' terminated in the formal
surrender of the troops of artillery
at the barracks.
It is believed that not less' than
200 were killed, among them Gen--
eral Bernardo Reyes.
Led by the students of the mili
tary school they first released Diaz
and then Reyes with no resistance, f
Portions of the First Cavalry, 24th
Cavalry, and 20th Infantry quickly
joined the rcvoltcrs. General Mon-
dragon who was in command retired
in favor of Reyes and Diaz.
The first encounter of the loyal
troops was at 8:30 in front of the
palace, Reyes was killed instantly by
a bullet through the Jiead. Many fell,
among the scores of bodies were
those of officers,' women and boys,
members of the great crowd which
assembled when the firing begun.
General 'Lauro, -Villar, the post
commander . at the capital who re

as was also General Pena, the min

(From Sunday's Daily.)
February, month of glee,
Youngest child of winter's three,
Comes along amid the snow
When the winds of winter blow,
Singing such a lively tune,
Making winter bright as June.
Takes from art her mantle fine
Lovers' dainty valentine.
Tells of cupid, shy yet bold,
Story that shall ne'er grow old
Making maidens blush and smile,
As they read of love the while.
Though she speedeth by so fast,
When the winter's over past
She shall long remembered be
Youngest child of winter's three.

The social column will be discon
tinued during the Lenten season, as
many of the hostesses have decided
to 'rest after the numerous festivities

was the luncheon which took place
on Tuesday afternoon at which Mrs.

Promptly at 2 o'clock the guests
assembled in the spacious dining
room where tables, daintily decorat
ed with candles, wreathed in fluffy
pink and encircled with strands of
smilax, accommodated the guests
who numbered over a hundred.
In the drawing room and ball
room, where the guests were receiv
ed after luncheon, were decorations
of enchantress carnations, pink tulle
and a graceful arrangement of
greenery. In the larger room tables
were arranged for "500", while the
smaller one was chosen for those
who wished to sew. For the enter
tainment of these friends a guessing
game was also introduced at which
Mrs. H. T. Southworth "was the
fortunate contestant. Exquisitely
designed bags in pink were the priz
es and of the "500' players Mrs. O.
A. Hcsla and Mrs. James A. Hope
made the highest scores of the af
ternoon while the "slam" honors
were won by Mrs. Charles C. Kecl

In the report of the preliminary
examination of J. H. Morrison on
a charge of killing Ed. Zicger, an
error was unintentionally made in
the testimony of the defendant. The
account stated that Morrison said:
"I knew Zieger had killed men and
beaten up others who did not agree
with him" when the language should
have been: "I have seen that man
shoot people down there one In

up several men and I never knew
