Important Discovery Claimed by a Colorado Explorer In New Mexico. Capt. Cecil A. Deane, of the Denver State Historical society, lately spent two weeks near Callup, N. M,, looking for a sandstone house partially cov ered by o bed of lava. Tbis, says a Denver exchange, he failed to find, but he discovered other evidence of the presence of man in that locality dur ing the tertiary period. Near the given site of the elusive stone house they came upon the site of an old lake cov ered with lava. Fifty feet above the original level of the vanished lake a cliff house was found. From this long untenanted abode the explorers took two bushels of calcined corn, which, however, had not come into contact with any burning substance. It was of an altogether different variety from the corn that is and has been used by the Indians. Over the corn was a layer of chipped stone reddened by intense heat from the lava bed of solidified de bris which lay above the burnt rock. 1 __ iV. .. 1_ -• _ nr.ic stored there were no weapons cr uten sils made of lava. On the other hand, such weapons and utensils were plenti ful in the cliff dwelling at a lower level. These facts have convinced Capt. Deane that the region was inhabited before and after the Inva flow, which hi of t.he later tertiary period. Mnnlln’s Destructive Ants. The white ants of Manila are fond of wood. They boro holes from the outside, enter in thousands, and eat articles of furniture until little is left but mere shells. Sometimes they de vour the legs of a chair, so that when a person sits down, the chair crum bles under him, and be suddenly and ungracefully lands on the floor. The Tortoise ns a Weather Prophet.

WANTS INDIANS TO VOTE. Captain Allison, of South Dakota, to Give Political Instruction to the Sioux. During the next four months the Sioux Indians on the reservations in South Dakota are to receive their first instructions in civics if Capt. E. H. Al lison has his way about it. Capt. Al lison is a member of the Uncpaphah tribe of Sioux Indians, having been adopted by that tribe in 1866, and he married the Sioux princess, Sinawin, daughter of Sacred Bear, who was for years head chief of the tribe. Capt. Allison, says a special dis patch to the Chicago Inter Ocean, hns lived among the Sioux Indians nearly all his life, and he speaks the Indian language us fluently as he speaks the English, lie was chief of the scouts for Gen. Sheridan for sev eral years, and was chief scout and interpreter for Gen. Otis in the west ern country for 10 or 15 years. It was lie who, after the Custer massacre on me ume mg uorn, went to Canada to induce Sitting Bull and his band, who had fled thither, to re* turn to the United States; and he was in charge of the command which took Sitting Bull to Fort Randall. “Few of the Sioux Indians have ever participated in a presidential cam paign," said Capt. Allison recently. “In fact, but few of them can be said to have a political opinion. It is my purpose to go out on all the reserva tions west of the Missouri and hold meetings wherever a dozen or more Indians can be gathered together. This work will take three or four months. I shall give them elementary lessons in civic duties, and shall try to show them what it means for them to be citizens of the United States I shall explain why it is necessary to have elections, polling places, and laws governing each things. I shall have j blank ballots and conduct mock elec- j tions in prder to give these new cit- i izens of ours a concrete idea of eleo- j ion methods.” _ Electric Motors hi Ports.
