The production ' in Southern France never supplies more than a frac- f French needs, so that buyers America and northern L'mope will probably meet with competition in Tunis and (! recce from the French buyers who ordinarily obtain their supplies from Spain and Italy. French olive culture is confined to Provence, and is heaviest around Aix, Toulon and Draguignan, just east of Marseilles. Olive culture has been steadily declining in that region, because it does not possess so warm a climate as the other olive countries, and the oil is not so rich in natural phosphates, up on which the olive tree depends. The French oil is of the very highest quality but it has suffered greatly from the com petition of cheaper olive oils and of re fined peanut and itttonseed oil. A law was passed in IfllS prohibiting the. cut ting down of olive orchards in France, except by special permit. These permits have been issued very freely, however, and the orchards are rapidly being deci mated. According to some estimates, the industry will have disappeared from this regiTui within the next 20 or '2 years. At the time of the oil estimates, in December, very little of the product was changing hands and the price quoted was 4'i francs. Olive oil was then pur chased in Tunis at about .')." francs per P'C kilos lJo pounds! but the export brought this up to 4!0 francs at Marseil les and other markets. Some of the prominent memlwis of the trade expect large increases in olive oil prices as the shortage of the ore-ent crop becomes more apparent. New York Times. RUIIC YIELDS NEW DISCOVERIES the the Aztec Rurial Chambers I'neartlietl by Expedition from American Museum Two burial chambers are among the numerous recent discoveries in the Az tec ruin, an enormous prehistoric l'ueblo community dwelling near Aztec, N. M. The excavation work is being done by the America ti Museum of Natural His tory as a part of the Archer M. Hunt ington Archaeological Survey of southwest. In his laJest letter to jmiscum, Earl M. Morris, who is in charge of the work, writes: "iSeneath the debris adjacent to the famous Painted 1 loo in opened in 1!I20. there lias been found a second chamber perfectly preserved in every detail. The pine and cedar beams in the sinoke- brown ceiling are as sound as when tin trees were felled, and on the wail-stones, the marks of qtiartzite pebbles with which they were faced are as bright and fresh as-if the artisan who shaped them though dead these thousands of years, had but finished yesterday, gathered up his primitive tools and stepped out of the finished chamber. "This room was the tomb of n war rior who lay in solitary state against one wall immediately back of the . Re cessed Altar in the Painted Room. The ImmIv was that of a veritable giant over six feet and an inche in height, who towered head and shoulders over the average" ipan of his tribe. Death came to the stalwart defender of the village when he was in the prime of life, and in the height of his glory as well, if one may infer the esteem in which he va held by the excellence of his tomb and the number of his burial accompani ments. "The mighty frame had been wrapped in a mantle of feather cloth and en shrouded with a mat of woven rush stems. Back of the body there' were four magnificent pottery bowls, a cup and a basket. I'pon the skull rested a largo spherical aso with a neatly fit ting cover, both of tlu-ni exquisitely wrought and ornamented.
