ROMAN FORUAl EXCAVATIONS
mportant as Well as Highly Interesting
Discoveries Recently Made.
Professor James C. Egbert, Jr., writing
in the July-September Forum, says:
As early as the autumn of 1S98, atten?
tion had been directed to the various
fragments of an architectural character
which were scattered throughout the
Forum area without assignment to the
original structures. The minister of pub?
lic instruction appointed a commission
consisting of Slgnor Boni, Slgnori Gatti,
nnd Lanciani, and Professor Huelsen,
whose dutv It was to undertake tho re?
storation of those monuments, the rela?
tive completeness of whose remains justi?
fied such an undertaking. This com?
mission, fortunately composed of men of
scholarly judgment, determined upon a
most thorough investigation, resolving to
make excavations. If It was necessary,
even to tho lowest stratum.
Little did these scholars realize the re?
sults of this praiseworthy determination.
In November, 189S, two of the seven colos?
sal pillars which had adorned the north
side of the Sacra Via opposite the Basil?
ica Julia had been replaced on their
hases, and the shrine at the entrance
of the House of the Vestals was restored.
What proved to bo of greater import?
ance was the digging of "tastl," or ex?
perimental trenches, In various parts of
the Forum. On January 10, lf>99, the now
famous "lapis nlger" was found, which
many at once accepted as the stone tra?
dition had described as marking the tomb
of Romulus. This discovery was a great
Incentive to further excavations. Money
was provided by the State, and even pri?
vate Individuals contributed toward the
purchase of houses which blocked the
path of the excavator.
In the spring of 1900, a shrine and ?Me
with archaic inscription were discovered
under tho "lapis nlger"; and In the sum?
mer months tho ascent of tho Sacra Via,
that portion In front of the Basilica of Con
stantlne, and a part of the Basilica Aomi
lla, were cloared. Finally, It was pro?
posed to yield to the archeologlst tho mod?
ern street, along which ran an electno
tramway. In the enthusiasm of the time
this was done, and excavations uncovered
the area of the comitlum and tho west
em portion of the Basilica Aemllla. The
early months of lO?u witnessed the pur?
chase and demolition of the Churoh of
Snnta Maria Lib?ratrice, which stood In
the way of nrcheologlcal progress on tho
other side of the Forum. There the shrlno
of Juturna and the Basilica of Santa Ma
ria Antiqua of tho eighth century of our
era were brought Into view. In the fall of
1900 and In the spring of 1901 excavatlon-j
were made at the rear of tlie Temple o<
Castor, near the Rostra and the House of
the Vestals, and in the latter part of 1901
"tastl" were dug in the Sacra Via froni
the Arch of Titus to the entrance of the
Palace of the Caesars. In llHB, near tho
Church of SSL Cosma and Damiano, re?
mains of private houses of republlcar
days, and near the southeast corner of the
Temple of Faustina graves of a ven?
are hate period were found. The Temple
of Plvus Augustus to the south of the
Temple of Castor, received considerable
attention during last year, and is ever,
now in the hands of the excavators. Th-B
is a summary of the operations of the
lost five years.

"I was visiting a friend who owns a
Immense cotton farm on the Mississlpi
a( hundred miles below Memphis. I rod
out over his farm with him one mornln;
He had hundreds of negroes at work !
gangs of twenty-five, each gang und?
an overseer or foreman. Nearly over

every gang my host was roT-icste? b
one or several of the laborers for n

negroes do not use the snuff as ou
grandfathers did, that ts, via the nose
but you will see one of them reach ii
his pocket, draw out a bag or box, tak'
from It a wad of snuff as big as :
hickory nut, and pulling out his lowe
lip, pack in the snuff around the gums
and then let the lip fly back on it. H<
will not want fresh snuff for an hour o;

and North Carolina, and probably othei
Southern States, many women use snuff
They do so by first chewing the end ol
a dogwood switch a few Inches long,
nnd dipping this in the snuff and rub?
bing their teeth with it. That Is called
'dipping.' Some of the most beautiful
teeth I have ever seen have been in the
heads of these fair 'dippers.* "
Tt is rumored to-cay that S. W. Tul

who preferred charges against Mr.

at first termed thorn "hot air." Mr.
