What a fine time this is for the use
of the split log drag. If used now we
would have a good road all summer.
It looks like fighting now with
Mexico. Mr. Huerta will find out if
the coming of the fleet Is only Yankee
bluff. He better fire that saline.

iould like why let him bow gracefully
to the will of the majority.
Sometimes we feel like our co'remporary
that we would like to get off
*o some quiet place where we could
:hink without interruption, but it had
i ever occured to us 'that a jail would
e a good place. Maybe Brother AVal
'ace was thinking of the coming of
:ha army of candidates for governor
nd he was hoping that they would not
.'nvade the quietude of a jail cell.
That would be no barrier if they
i.iough't there was a possibility of a
GREAT COUNCIL RED MEN.
A detailed account of the meeting
ci the great council of Red Men is
ublisbed in another column. As statd
the great council continues to be
:ind to Newberry people and Newberry
Red Men in particular. It was
u most delightful meeting of the great
; ouncil. Harmony and good will and
ood fellowship prevailed throughout
the business sessions. There were no
' vidences of small and petty jealousies
:.na spites, and, of course, there should
I.ave been none, but sometimes even
among fraternal bodies these things
< reep out. The business was conclud?
d in one day.

Rock Hill is a live and progressive j

r.ay night to welcome "he great coun- :

which they received their guests gave!
< vidence of their earnestness, and, no
doubt, instilled good feeling among j

Rock Hill has about nine large cot-1

it the one thing which has made the!
;\vn known far and wide, and in the!
; ossession of which* 'the town is in- j
ed fortunate, is the \Vinthrop col-!
ge. It is a great institution and one j
. in !have no idea of it until he visits i
..e institution itself. Of course, you
mi judge a college to some extent by \
*- e graduates who leave the institu-j
n, but that is not always a fair test, j
Tiiis is a magnificent plant at Rock ^
Mill and it continues to grow. Presi-I
nt Johnson kindly arranged a re;
.-ption at the college for the great
ouncil and I am sure the members
< ;jdyed the hour spent there more
. an any other hour at Rock Hill.

The order seems to be in fine workcondition
in this S'a:e at this time
. .id I believe that the next great coun- j
! moDfinc in Vowhornv will fi'hnw f> !
cidei' increase in membership. The J
scorning great sachem, the Hon. Al-J
t E. Hill, is young and active and j
:th the active cooperation of thej
her great chiefs there is no reason j
: t to expect to see a great gain in
:..ombership during this great sun.
/The great P?cahaatas also held the
mee:ing in Rock Hill. The past year
1 has siiown a decided increase in the
membership and interest in this
branch of the order. The great Poca!

OLI) PEUBLO CITY
Acoma Found by Explorer C'oronado
Acoma, the Pueblo Indian city
do'vvn in -\ew Mexico, is said to be the
oldest city in the Western Hemisphere. \
it was ill full bloom when Coronado in \
1542 came across it-on an exploring |
tour northward from Mexico. He
found, says the iToronto Mail and Empire,
the Pueblo Indians doing things
that they are doing today and doing it j
in the same fashions, 'and the houses J
on the rocky islands that rise several!
hundred feet out of the plains are the !
same houses Ovt Coronado's eyes rest-1
erl on as hp oame on *he Indian citv.!
St. Augustine, which is often refer- j
red to as the oldest city in the United j
States, was not found until 1565, when
Menendez came on Florida, while
chasing a French ship under Rebault.
Years before Ccronado found it Acoma j
was a recognized abode of the Pueblo |
Indians. The Pueblos told Coronado j
that their first citv was on Katzimo. i
the rocky island three miles away,;
which is also called the "Enchanted
Mesa." Many years ago, they told the
Spanish explorer, the original^ Acoma
rested on the top of Katzimo.
One day, while all hut three wo^ami |
' were in tlv plain?; below the tableland,'
; a great cliff lell, destroying the trail
I from tlie plains to the ancient city, j
'The Indians took this as an indica'ion
jo;' t'.ie Great Spirit's displeasure over
! something they had done, and to pun-,
i ish them had cut off the path ro th? ir
city. Instead of clearing the path and
! returning to iheir old homes on top of
Katzimo the Pueblo went to an ad
: joining taoieiana ana mere set up tn<*

The Pueblos look at the old city on
; its rocky site nearly 400 l'eet in the air.

The present c*i:y of Acoma is o.i a
plateau that rises 350 feet out of the
arid plains of New Mexico. The sides
f the plateau, a mass of brown sandstone,
are almost straight. To get io
ihe up one must climb a crude stairway
cut in the stone. On top one will
find three or four rows of primitive
apartment houses. These houses are
three stories high and are .built 011
each side of streets 1,000 feet long.
I The noises follow a line thai seems
I even straighter than the building line
in big cities, since the houses are ail of
the same jype or' architecture and are
builr up close to the line. The streets,
too. are 100 feet wide, which may be
j another feature that modern 'city
: uuuuers iu<t} nave cupieu iioin iue leu
j men of The southwest.
One may be sure that the Pueblos
| did not ge: the idea of broad streets
! and building linefc from the white
! man's cities, for 100-foot streets and
! building lines were laid down years
and years before palefaces came
across the ocean. These things were a
part of Acoma when Coronado called
j on the Pueblos in 1542. Another fea!
ture of this quaint ctiy is that houses
| have fiat^cofs. The upper floors are
| reached by outside stairways in the
j shape of ladders. The first floor is the
! longest. The second floor is ten feet
| shor:er than the first and the third
floor is ten feet shorter than the second.
This ten feet serves as yards for
eacn or the apartments. In summer
the Indian and family use this yard
for sleeping. In winter he sleeps indoors.
Houses are built of mud, ordinary
New Mexico mud, shaped into blocks
and baked hard. After centuries under
the fierce rays of the sun the
blocks get as hard as stone. The walls
are seamless. Af:er the blocks were
placed, the Indian builders smeared the
joints with mud, which in time'became
part of the blocks. The walls of most
of t'he houses are eight feet thick. In
the early days ttoey were often a tacked
by the warring Indians of the
southwest, as they knew the Pueblo
ci.y was always well stocked wit;Ii
foodstuffs. In the city is a cathedral 40
feet wide and 40 feet high. It has two
towers in which swing bells. The cath
