LOST TRIBE OF ISRAEL?
Peculiar Race of People Living Un
derground in Central America
Col. J. C. Tucker. former United
States minister at Martinique. relates
a strange story of a race of people
living in an underground city in Cen
tral America. Col. Tucker some time
ago received information, about a race
who live in cities cut out of the rocks
in the mountains in Central Amerie..
in an out-of-the-way place. very dinfi
cult to reach. and which no stranger
had visited before him and returnea
alive. He decided to investigate.
After reaching a certain point Col.
Tucker had to travel 8oo miles
through wild jungles carrying his
provisions on a pack mule and en
during many hardships on the way.
As he neared the hidden city his every
movement was watched and reportea
to the high priest of the tribe dwell
ing there, but no harm was offered
him: When he shot a pair of lions
in the jungle. which had been killiDg
the natives, he did an act that turnea
out to be the very thing that gave
him their friendship and protection.
He was welcomed by the high
priest, who spoke good English. ana

city, hewn out of solid granite rocks
in the mountain side. To the unini

gave no clew to the city concealed
within it. It was entered by secret
passages. cunningly concealed by
nature's handiwork. and which led
to large, commodious rooms. hand

hogany. Passages led to hundreds
of other ro.ms and to a large hall,
in which the strange people met and

were side rooms, from which, at a
moment's notice. deadly gases could
be let loose upon any hostile invaders
who might enter, and which would
kill them instantly, while by sliding
doors of stone the gas would be kept
from entering the city.
The light of the sun, moon or stars,
never enters their underground city,
except by certain openings, by
which they study the mysteries of the
night skies, but they use electricity
for lighting purposes. a science they

wishes to preserve the knowledge. He

Power in Woman's Eyes.
A woman's eves are the first ob
jects to attract a man's attention, and
they are the last things he remembers
about her. Long after he has forgot

in her chin and the soft sweet soni

him may have been worn out by his
valet. but still some particular turn
oi her glance or lifting her brown
eves will be as clear to him as the
daylight. Ten years after -love has
been laid away in his little satin linea
casket that glance will rise like Ban

him ijust at the moment when the man
is looking most intently into the eyes
of another woman.
It is not the color of the woman'
eyes which a Vian first remembers.
Nine times out of ten a man will
turn from the glance of a pair of
soft brown. cowlike eyes to gaze into
the green orbs of the red headed
girl on the other side of the table.

The fact that, Becky Sharp's eyes
were green or that Cleopartra's eyes
were yellow never interfered with
the machinations of those facinating
ladies. or dulled their reputations
as coquettes. Color, size and shape
may make an eye beautiful, but they
never cant give it that something
which so many beautiful eyes lack and
so many homely ones possess. the
power. to make a man break a bank
or sell his overcoat in order to give
his wife what she wants.

men called it "soul." Then they
grew practical and apathetic ana
