There «UI1 remains unmistakable evidence that they watered the land. Their old ditches are still to be seen and can INI1 traced for long distances on many of the best pieces of land. How they rawed the water from the river has bweu a question in the minds of every rorie. who has made a study of this, the diost civilized of all the tribes that lived in the new world before It was Kmwd by the white man. Hie ditches are most of them large enough to carry a good sized stream of water. Some Bay this small stat ural race of men must have had some kind, of pumps and power to lift the yuluine of water, while others contend tint thousands of the men (or maybe il .was the women) dipped the water up in jars and carried it from the riv«r ta the canals. have never round any jars or broken pottery along or near the ca fliilii. Neither have I ever heard of au? being, found nearby them, f" These houses are found under great overhanging ledges, most always with a4**utheast front, many of them with' ootiy one room. Others have 'been found.with, many rooms,-even in some abuses as many as hundreds ol rooms. They are usually'built of stones th4 cdlor of the ledge that they are built uuden The stones are laid up in mor tar of dobe mud. In some of the tonuses finger prints can be seen where the cliff dwellers plastered the walls. Some houses are plastered in side and out thick enough so that the stones in the wall do not show. The piaster is so hard that neither rats, bobcats nor wolves can dig it out to get at the grain that has been stored in' many of the houses. In other houses are found charcoal and ashes, partly burned wood, ar row heads, stone awls or needles, jars, broken pottery, baskets and woven chilli. Some of the broken pottery tats been found built into the walls. Some of the buildings that were used for storing grain are under rocks aud oil the north side of the ledges., Ttoey contain corn, wheat, pumpkin squash seeds end grains that ,-iro extinct.

The cliff dwellers have written their history on the rocks and passed on. Some of this, 'the pictures of mountain sheep, deer, mountain lion and Jiob-cats, can be seen and under stood by anyone. These, and some other animals that look something like sheep and also resemble ante lope, are still to be found in abund ance in this region. Explorers have failed to discover any drawings of buffalo or elk. The hieroglyphics are found near the city of Green River, Utah. Many have made attempts at interpretation, none have been able to succeed. If the inscriptions could be read they would certainly afford interesting and valuable history. It is regrettable that some of the sightseers have had so little regard for these valuable relics as to pillage some of the houses, carrying away of the contents of the houses, and in several instances have painted over the hieroglyphics. Of course the paint ing was done in order that they might better photograph the Inscriptions, but it should be remembered that there is a severe federal penalty for anyone convicted of such depredations and it is the intention of this writer and others to prosecute the first person caught destroying or in any manner defacing the hieroglyphics, houses or forte.—Robert Woodruff.

An acceptable preseut is a year's subscription for a magazine, but of course this can be offered only when the man Is a relative or intimate friend whose taste in literature Is familiar to the giver. Bound books, too. are usually ap preciated. but small books, sncb as notebooks, diaries, verse books, et'".. are seldom used. Sometimes the note book is a mistit for the pocket, and. again, not every man keeps a diary all reasons why this kind is a risk present. A leather framed calendar will al ways find a place on a man's desk. A fountain p*n should only be given when the donor kuows exactly the kind the recipieut likes.

Tlie school bell's notes now fill tlie air The rtays are calm and cool, And merry children every where, Now scamper off to school. Vacation joys are past and gone, The picnic time now ends, Another school year now is on, With all that it protends. The school hours are a joy to some, And school a joyous spot, And some are K'luU these days have come And some again are not. My sluggish recolections run, When obeyed the rule, And moekly registered as one, Of those wiio went to school. 1 played along the roads, no doubt, With school toy friends of mine, And likely got to school about, A puarter after nine. I poundered all excuses o'er. And dodged in numerous ways. And had to stand upon tlie lloor As kids do now-a-days. And yet a score of years have flown,' Since these things I relate, And meantim# I have somehow grown, To mantiood's large estate. 1 made no large, stra^etic move, In seeking alter truth, I didn't properly improve Tlie harvest time of youth. I didn't go forth every day, And rarest treasures glean. The golden sheaves I laid away, Were few and far between. And yet, those days, when I, a boy, Held down my little stool, I \"ish to heaven I might enjoy, A few more days at school. Could I beneath that old straw hat, A few more times but stand, And wear the shirt and trousers that, My mother sewed by hand. Could the old cshool see again, And look on each dear face, And view the whole surroundings when, Each one was in his place. New faces now are there instead, As time's been moving on, Most of those boys and girls are dead The rest are up and gone. And time is still on his restless course, Continuing to wend. Proceeding from the same old source. And to the same old end.
