Gustavo Madero, brother of Presi dent Madero is a prisoner. After some street fighting in Which about 150 were killed, the government succeeded in regaining partial control. President Madero led the loyal troops for a part of the time. The insurgents released Felix Diaz and Bernardo Reyes. General Villar, a loyalist, was kill ed in one' of the conflicts. Felix Diaz and his followers- gain ed control of the city early in the afternoon. He- took possession of the--palace and captured the arsenal by assault. Only a few scattered companies of the city garrison majn taine'd an appearance of loyalty (to the administration. General Bernardo Reyes, ex-secretary of war was shot through the head and killed in front of the nat ional palace. The revolt of the troops took place early in the morning- at frequent intervals throughout the day. President Madero and members of his cabinet took refuge in the nat ional palace where they were besieg ed but with some of the loyal troops al his back, he succeeded in defend ing the palace from the assaults of the revolutionists.

A prehistoric graveyard on Syca more creek, where the grade of the Verde railway passes through,, has been uncovered by a crew of labor ers under the direction of Conductor C W. Corbin, in performing certain excavations to improve the roadway. There has 'thus been revealed a very interesting situation that pre vailed at some time or another, in the physical make-up of a race as is reflected in the massive remains that have been recovered, and which are indisputable of a giant type of humanity that is bewildering to those of this generation. The skull of a human is in the possesion of Mr. Corbin together with a portion of the "frame, that would indicate one who in life must have attained a heighth of at least eight feet. The sides of the face have been severed, but when placed in their DERO REGIME Page One) eluding the most of the artillery and in possession of the arsenal and powder works nearby. Madero is relying on the loyalty of General Blanquet, who has been summoned from Toluco, 40 miles distant. But Blanquet has only one thousand at his command and the rebels arc confident of defeating him should he refuse to join the revolt. The day was marked by four sep arate engagements of the most san guinary of which was in fr6nt of the palace but the most important was that which' terminated in the formal surrender of the troops of artillery at the barracks. It is believed that not less' than 200 were killed, among them Gen-- eral Bernardo Reyes. Led by the students of the mili tary school they first released Diaz and then Reyes with no resistance, f Portions of the First Cavalry, 24th Cavalry, and 20th Infantry quickly joined the rcvoltcrs. General Mon- dragon who was in command retired in favor of Reyes and Diaz. The first encounter of the loyal troops was at 8:30 in front of the palace, Reyes was killed instantly by a bullet through the Jiead. Many fell, among the scores of bodies were those of officers,' women and boys, members of the great crowd which assembled when the firing begun. General 'Lauro, -Villar, the post commander . at the capital who re mained .loyal, was slightly wounded as was also General Pena, the min ister of war. . At the first call to arms the presi dent took command of a force of ap proximately a thousand consisting of mounted police, the Capultepec cadets and a detachment of volun teers.

The bones of the legs likewise are of greater length and heavier than any of this day. That a prehistoric burying place has been determined is proven in the finding of a handful of beads, which archaeologists trace to the Toltec period. These precious or naments were kept by the Mex ican laborers, and cannot be secured. Mr. Corbin, however, verifies the discovery made, and at the time did not appreciate what their possession meant, else would have secured the the lot. The mammoth skeleton is a du plicate of that discovered some months ago by Peter Marx on Wal nut creek, which the owner retains in his possession. Tie S ocia (From Sunday's Daily.) FEBRUARY.
