r The mystery of long dead ages and
peoples broods over much of south
wesetern America, and the tale of its
prehistoric peoples is not even guessed
at. Evidence there is, however, in
plenty that this region was once Iphab
Ited thousands of years ago by a dense
population of skillful and Intelligent
farmers. They left behind them traces
of their agricultural ability In the
shape of Irrigation works, with canals
and water gates. In many parts of this
country also have been fuond agricul
tural implements. Pottery abounds,
together with polished woods, stones
and shalls and finely woven cloths,.

all standards of archaeological research
there could scarcely have been less
than balt a mllUion of people here. This
io probably far below the real number.
for doubtless many traces of these
primitive people or peoples have been

the world, not even exceepting the sites
at famed hibstoric cities, that would so

In some parts of Arisona bowilde,
and stones Inscribed with b.leroglyph
bare been found. The prehistoric rates
evidently knew how to communicate
their thoughts Ia writing, but It Is an
open question whether moderns will
ever be able to read them. The origin
of these prehistorle peoples may re
main forever clouded In mystery and
doubt. though scieetists who have ex
amined the ruins advance various by
petheess. Of positive evidence outside
of the ruins themselves there is little
or sone. It Is bid that the Chinese
claim that one of their explorers found

but. on the other hand. the Indiana
have traditions of a "bearded white
race." And the Chinese are neither
