Important Discovery Claimed by a
Colorado Explorer In New
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

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.
A tortoise is an excellent weather

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.”
