BONES OF MOUNDBUILDERS
EXHUMED:
St. Paul, Minn., Sept 3 [Special].
— An interesting discovery has been
made on the shore of Lake Minne
tonka. A mound was explored sand
gave evidence of a pre-historic race.
The mound is ahout thirty feet in
diameter, and rises seven feet above
the lake, toward the edge of which
one side gently slopes. Near by is
another mound of about the sawme
size, On these mounds grow large
trees, which are from 150 to 200
years old. Below the mound’s sur:
face was found earth tightly tramped
and most like rock. By this means
and by building on a hill, where the
drainage was perfect, the ancient
people sealed up their graves almost
hermetically.
~ When this hard earth was removed,
there was found, at a depth of three
to six feet, the grave of the mound
builders, full of their bones and
their crockery. Specimens of their
bones and teeth showed that these
men were huge and brawny, One
big scull was obtained different in
type from the modern skull., The
bodies were all buried with their
! heads toward the mound’s center. Evi
dently the bodies were doubled up
when buried, for the skulls were
found touching the upper leg bones.
IThe teeth are long, strong and sound,
and with rerve cavities much deeper
than in modern teeth. The pottery |
is decidedly interesting, too. One
of the fragmentary jars is wrapped
in closely woven cloth, which had
been imbedded in the clay before
baking. This shows that the mound
builders, unlike the Indians, were
‘weavers of considerable ability.—
New York Tribunme.
} SUGAR has come to take so im
portant a position in connection with
reciprocity that the necessity of con
tinuing protection in any duties now
adopted is in danger of being over
looked. Two things are indispensa:
ple in the new sugar schedule; first
to begin the duty at a point where it
will protect refining, This can only
be done by commencing duties ag
“N 0.13 D. S.” Ifsugar is left free
up to “16,” as proposed in the House
bill, a serious blow will be dealt to
an important industry. The second
requisite is that the duty on higher
grades shall be adequate. Senator
Manderson skows the stake the West
has in Protection by proposing to 'z d
beet-root sugar by increasing the
duty on refined sugars. The foreign
supply of these highly refined sugars
which reaches our market is already
protected by a bounty in Germany
and France, and beet-root sugar will
never}be successfully produced here
uutil it has equivalent aid at home
and protection from foreign competi
tion .
