den hailfall we took refuge in tin, frame

place things, as carpenter's tools, ex
celsior packing and. a surprising num

Withiu a radius of eight miles aud
easily accessible, were visited the
dwellings of those- prehistoric, myste
rious people, of. whom we know only
that they were hero and now aro not,
that they are unregistered in earth's
auuals except in these ancient ruins.
At Waluut Canyon the, walls are deeply
eroded in parallel horizontal lines, by
which natural recesses aro, made,
floored aud roofed by the moro stren
ous strata; here iu great numbers are
the cliff dwellings, like swallow's
nests, between earth aud sky. With
rock fragments and cement partitions
are run and the fronts uud sides
walled, some of these intact, olhersjd
ruins, while tho quaint Implements and
trinkets that at discovery character
ized these dwellings are' now rarely
found. Ouly fragments of pottery
are common. Some of the dwellings
more.difllcult of exploration may yield,
archaeological treasures. .
Another of Flagstaff's possessions
is tbe noblo and practical mountalu of
