OLDEST "CITY"- IN AMERICA
Scientists Discover Copan Burled In
the Forests of Honduras, Was
Once Busy Center.
You were doubtless taught that St.
Augustine, Fla., 1b the oldest city In
far as settlements by
Europeans are concerned that Is prob
ably correct, but scientists know of a
oity so old that there 1b no telling
when it was built, and they often
speak of it a* "the oldest city in
America." This "city" Is Copa'n, bu
rled In the forests of Honduras, near
the Guatemala boundary line. It Is
not a city In the modern sense of the
word, for It Is only a heap of rutas,
but there 1B enough to show that at
some time centuries and centuries ago
it was a busy center of population.
Then the Maya Indians of Yucatan
and Central America were at the
height of their civilization. They
built cities by constructing the bases
of great pyramids out of blocks of
stone of enormous size. These blocks
were taken from quarries some times
'two miles distant, were conveyed to
the "city" and placed In the wall In
Jperfect order, and yet It 1b not known
,that the Mayas had any machinery
ifor handling such heavy material.
The pyramidal abase of Copan is
built up to considerable height, and
upon the flat top are placed the pal
aces, the altars and other smaller
pyramids. From all evidence Copan
was In ruins when Cortez conquered
Mexico In 1C21. The Spaniard and his
soldiers passed wlthlp a short distance
of It and did not see the town at all,
so it must have been deserted even
then. And yet tfte ruins of Copan
bear evidence of having lain there,
burled amid the luxuriant foliage of
Honduras, for ages, and only some
crude Inscriptions on the rooks can
give a clue to the history of the won
derful place. TheBe Inscriptions and
carvings still defy solution. There are
statues and Images made of rock, but
they are meaningless. Copan's history
Is unknown and so scientist* are

I An Unexpected
Dick Huntington was seated at his
desk, looking over the mail.
Dick was president of one of the
largest clothing stores in Chicago.
He had begun as errand boy and had
been gradually promoted until, at the
last meeting of the board of direct
ors, Ire was elected president. Short
ly after taking the office of president,
he shifted Robert Patterson, one of
the floor walkers, to the position of as
sistant manager and purchasing
Bob was now In Europe, having
gone there a month before to secure
for the firm the latest styles In cloth
ing. He was expected back within a
short time, and, as Dick was anxious
to set the men to working on the new
styles, he awaited Bob's arrival with
no small interest. Being at the head
of the firm, his greatest desire was to
make this year the greatest in the
history of the clothing business.
He was busily engaged looking oveiv
his mall that morning and had nearly
finished, when he heard a rap on his
door. At his request, the door was
opened, admitting a messenger boy.
He handed Dick a telegram and left
Dick glanced at the telegram anil
found it to be from Bob. He hastily
tore open the envelope and read the
following message addressed tii:him
"Will be back Thursday. Married.
Everything O. K. fibh."
Dick, after reading the message, "sat
back in his chair and had a hearty
laugh over the news. He rang the
bell for +he stenographer.
Dorothy Wilcox entered the private
office. She was a pretty girl about 25
years of age and she came from a
l.ighly respected family.
"Miss Wilcox, I have just received a
telegram. It contains the best piece
of news I have heard for a long time.
Bob Patterson is coming back next
Thursday. He will be accompanied
by his wife."
To Dick's surprise Dorothy let the
shorthand book fall from her hand
Her face grew almost as white as her
The news had almoBt stunned her,
for she and Bob had Becretly become
engaged and were to have been mar
ried In August. She loved him and
had always believed that he loved her
but now, while he was in Europe, he
had met another girl and married her.
Could she bear the shock?
It was hard for her, but she was de
termined not to break down over It.
She took the shorthand book which
Dick had picked up and, taking a seat
at the desk, made ready for dictation.
The next few days passed quickly
and before Dick knew it it was Thurs
day. The train upon which Bob was
to arrive was an hour late and did not
pull in until 1:30 in the afternoon.
Dick had requested all the employees
to be at the station at the arrival of
the bride and groom and give them a
He had appointed Miss Wilcox, not
knowing of her relations to Robert, to
act as head of the reception commit
tee at the gate. She did not wish to'do
this, but Dick was one of those men
who is always kind to his employees,
but when he said a thing he wanted it
done. Therefore, dreading it even as
she did, Dorothy decided to obey her
employer and do his bidding.
About 1 o'clock the employees of
the firm began to assemble at the sta
tion. They kept on coming until, at
1:30, they were all there. The car
riage arrived, decorated for the occa
sion. A large sign was fastened on
the back, reading, "Just married," and
several strings of shoes were dragging
The employees formed in two lines
from the gate to the carriage. One
of the lines was headed by Miss "Wil
cox and the other by the floor walker.
Thus arranged, they awaited the ar
rival of Mr. and Mrs. Patterson!
They did not have to wait long.
The train soon pulled in. Now was
Dorothy's test. Would she break
down? She felt as if she could not
stand a moment longer. Her heart
was nearly broken it beat wildly
within her. But—she would at least
hold out until Bob was driven away
in the carriage. With this decision,
she waited silently.
Presently, Bob was seen approach
ing the gate. He was alone. Where
was his wife? Everyone was puzzled.
When he came to the gate, he was
surprised at seeing everyone waiting
for him. What did it mean Why this
celebration? He was quickly asked
where his wife was and he was taken
unawares. His wife? Where had the
news originated He asked for an ex
planation and was told of the tele
gram which Dick had received. He
soon solved the problem. A friend In
Europe, wishing to play a Joke on
him, had sent that telegram. He was
Dot-married. It was all a Joke.
"Dick," he said, "there is no Mrs.
Patterson—at present—but there Boon
will be one," and to the surprise of
all, he walked over to Dorothy and,
taking her by the arm, led her
through the two lines of employees
and Into the carriage. He directed the
driver to the parson's home, and, in
Bid* of an hour, Dorothy, who, a short
tlm£ before had believed her heart
to be broken, was being held tightly
in her husband's arms, the happiest
woman In the world.
