The Wash ington is a two-story frame structure and owned by Sidney Anderson of the Bank of Anchorage. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is sup posed that one of the roomers dropped a lighted cigarette, which caught the flimsy curtain. The up stairs interior was practically gut ted by the flames, which also de stroyed household effects, consisting of bedding, furniture and clothing. 'Mrs. Thompson, the landlady, lost all of her personal property and clothing. The loss is confined to the second floor, as everything down stairs was removed to safety. The building was fully insured. With the coming of winter and the extra fires needed as well as the in creasing difficulty of fighting blazes in the snow Fire Chief Dolan urges all owners and tenants the necessity of using all precaution to avoid the fire menace. ..Unofficial reports have been re ceived here to the effect that the niajority of voters cast Republican ballots at both Seldovia and Kenai on election day. Dan Patterson, R. M. Tucker and Ed. Meredith arrived from Seldovia on the steamer King fisher with the report, which was not at all complete in detail. The gentlemen all agree that Sutherland beat Grigsby in Seldovia and carried Kenai. They also advise that Arthur Frame, candidate for the legislature, ran ahead of his ticket in both of the fish towns. Other than this scant report no thing has been received from the in let towns. The official returns will lie received from Valdez within the next few weeks. The gentleme . were in Anchorage on business connected with fishing and coal operations.

Cordova Jazz Orchestra dance at Eagle Hall Saturday night lJVIMtt i t Sculpture at Monte Alban, Oaxaca. IN HUNDREDS of places through out the state of Oaxaca, Mexi co, are to he found what they call “Pueblos Viejos” (old vil ages), some close to the site of the ew villages and others in (he wild ouutry, far away from all habitations, n these ruins traces can be seen of louses, temples, fortresses and tombs. 'n some places graves only are seen o mark the place of a former civili sation, and these consist of mounds, mine of which are built to a eonxider ible height, writes a correspondent of lie Christian Science Monitor. Among the ruins well known on recount of their state of preservation mil importance can lie mentioned the mins of Mitla, those at Monte Alban, it Guiengulu and at Achlutlfl. The famous ruins of Mitla are the :>ost preserved on account of the dry •limate of tiie country hi which they are situated. They are among the nost elaborately ornamented rains in Mexico, and on the walls are found iliout fifteen different designs made vith mosaic.-^ known as grt < ipies. The igures are all geometrical and are found mostly in panels on both inside Old outside of the walls of (lie rooms. Features of Mitla Ruins. The original name of these ruins uus Lyolma, and they were later on ailed by the .Mexicans “Mietlan” vhich means “the place of the dead." The place is now in the renter of‘the Znpotec country, and the Zapoteo lan guage is spoketi by the inhabitants if the village close to the ruins. One if the chambers contains six huge monoliths, each being about J2 feet high and T feet in circumference, which have no carvings. The most beautiful room ii? known as the Hall if Mosaics. Rs four sides are covered with designs. Paintings were found an some of the walls, but these have mostly disappeared. Close to the ruins a pyramidal mound is to lie seen and about two miles distant is*'a fort of grtfit interest. The Jacques or arabesques found it Mitla give it a distinctive charac ter, and in no other part of the re public are there any ruins like them. Wl.eu the Spaniards conquered Mexi co, Mitla was still an important place. 'The ruins of Monte Alban are situ ated on the outskirts of the city of Oaxaca and seem to belong to a much alder civilization than those of Mitla. in fact, Monte Alban was in ruins when Mitla was at its height of pros perity. The ruins cover an art a of about two miles in length by a third uf a mile in width.- On every side are remains of temples, foundations, ter races, walls, and graves, but these places have not been explored and are covered with debris. Some tine stones with carvings are still standing and malty have been removed to the Na tional Museum ^ Mexico fity. The sculptures indicate that the Maya civi lization must have extended to litis part of the country. Fort at Guiertgula. The ruins of Gulengulu on the Isth mus of Tehuantepec show the exist ence of a big fort which was used in the battles between the Mexicans i;nd the Zapotecs. This fort was built on the top of a mountain, and contains two pyramids of stones, having stair ways leading up to the tops. Remains of temples, chambers, trenches, and terraces can also be distinguished. The ruins at Acliiutla consist of courts, walls, mounds, and terraces. Acliiutla was the sacred city of the t reat Mixtec nation, their country lac ing called Mixtecapam bgfore the Spaniards prrivCd in Mexico. An ex traordinary number of pieces of pot tery is found everywhere in this vil lage, which is still Inhabited by the Mixtec Indians, or Mixtecos. In the graves that have been opened in these different ruins have been found a great variety of stone and clay Ljlols, ornaments made of gold, copper, jade, shell, obsidian, and stone. Reniitmil specimens of painted pot tery li?lve also been found, and some of the finest samples of Mexican ce ramic art come from the tombs of Oaxaca. The Indian tribes Inhabiting the state of Oaxaca are ihe Zapotecs, Mlxtecs, Mljes. Cuicateck, Muza tecs. Mexicans, Amusgos, Triques, Ohatinos, rhinantecs, Hunves, Zoques and Cliontnles. Of these the Zapotecs and Mlxtecs were the most important and they resisted the Spaniards long after the rest of the country had been con • ottered. The Huaves. Amusgos and Triques have nearly nil disappeared. Each Tribe Has ,ts Dress. The Indians .still use. in their rmtiv* villages, a peculiar dress in each tribe (lie most picturesque being that worn by the Tehuantepec (Zapotec) women. Tile Muzntee and Chinuntec dresses are made with elatiorate designs in red. The Indians weave their own cloth and use vegetable dyes and cochineal for coloring. In the mountain villa ;es they si ill observe many of their an cient customs and they are very super stitious. The Mije Indians belong to one of the wildest tribes found in Mex ico and few people enter their ruggi d country. 'Then the Spaniards came to Mexico tlie Zapotecs had their own govern ment : 'Zaadiila was their capital and Oosijoejta their king. They had been at war with the Mexicans for many years, and with the aid of the Mixtecs lmd been able to resist (lie invasion of tiie Mexicans. The conquest of fliese tribes was mostly due 10 the influence of the Spntfish monks, who went to the most remote parts of the country and lived with the Indians many years, learned their language and preached the Gos pel to them. * On market days and feast days in tlie city of Oaxaca many types of In dians can still lie seen, with tlieir own peculiar dresses, and many of them speak nothing but tlie language i " their own tribes. In few parts of ti republic can so many* different types be seen together. I PETS THAT SAVED PROPERTY "instances of Robbers Captured Through the Efforts of Small Dog, Monkey, and Parrot. A Parisian was recently attacked in a lonely street by an apache who was armed with a revolver. The vil lain fired once and missed, hut ere lie eould fire again the citizen’s ter rier had him by the ear. The apache, shrieking with pain, dropped the gun. and tlie Parisian managed to secure him, according to London Answers.
