A FALSE RUMOR, .
Notwithstanding the fact that some
few maliciously inclined folks have cir
culated the report that we have stopped
the giving of Trading Stamps, we
want it known broadcast that we stilly
continue giving the Green Trading
Stamps with every purchase of ten -cents
worth or more, and that we will
redeem, at its cash value, every Stamp
that we give should the court's deci
sion be adverse to us. Therefore go
right along, do your shopping, secure
your Stamps, and remember for once
and always that the old reliable estab
lishment of Lansburgh & Bro., with its
thirty-seven years of honest business
methods, is always ready to back any
assertion it makes.

RUINED CITIES OF YUCATAN
Aii Interesting Lecture by Dr.
William H. Holmes.
Talk About n Hnce o People "W'h-se
Progress in Civilization Was In
terrupted by the Spaniards.
Dr. William II. Holmes, the leader of
the Hemmenway expedition, entertained
and inttructcd a large assemblage last
night at the First Congregational Churcn,
his subject being "The Ruined Cities of
Yucatan." The lecture was superbly
illustrated bv stereopticon views, and
was given under the auspices of tho
National Geographic Society.
The people ot Yucatan were shown to be
a race allied with the Aztecs. Tho civi
lization ot the former had reached a stage
on a level with that of the Egyptian
ot about 5,000 years ago. The peooie
of Yucatan, the lecturer contended, would
have been at par with Eastern peoples or
oven eras had they had the advantage of
the use of the domestio animals. The
civilization, such as it was, was inter
rupted by the Spanish conquest, at wasou
point the progress of the race probably
stopped, because their art was largely
religious, and their religion was de
stroyed. The views given were of the curious
temples ot the people. A singular feature
of the architectuie was the use of the
serpent as a column, the open mouth being
the base, and the tail, turned up and out
ward, being utilized as the capital. The
feathered serpent was a peculiar fea
ture of this column. The temples "werj
built o" pyramidal shaped structures, and
were readied by flights of ninety or a hun
dred steps. The rac.ules are carved as
were tho sides, one side being given in
which there were as many as 20,000
The carvings of three interiors were also
exhibited. Specimens of the stone work,
painting, etc., thowed the domestic hie
of the peiple. The colors of the works
were well preserved. Dr. Holmes rfnid that
it v. as doubtful If the hieroglyphics ot tho
race would ever be read. He exhibited
a page fiom one of these books, the char
acters being glyphs and phonetics, also a
high relief froip the walls of a temple
representing an allegory which was su
perior in design nnd treatment to any
thing Oriental of equal date. A ra .her
curious detali of some of the carved human
figures was that they had long beards, thus
differentiating the originals frcm tho
aborignal race of this continent.
