EARLY CULTURE IN MEXICO Existence of Highly Civilized Prehis toric ■eople'There Revealed by 'Antique Pleasure Garden. -That an unknown, highly cultured people, of whom neither history, tra. t dltion dor legend has preserved any , record, flourished In or near the Val-'. ley of Mexico and enjoyed spiced cho- | colate and aromStf? here rages from transplanted tropica) fruits grown by them Ip a marvelously built garden at Oaxtepec from 1,600 to. 2.000 years ago Is the latest theory of Guillermo Tel lez regarding the recently discovered garden of Montezuma. Mr. Tellez applied'to the department of publrc Instruction foe a special per mit to make explorations In the gar den. He states that concerning twen ty-one successive caciques on the land with codices In possession of the Na tional Mhseum has led him to believe that the garden has great antiquity,*;. He has been devoting a large part of four years to studying the plants found there. Through the Inscription's he has been able' to glean historical data concerning twenty-one successive caciques. Tropical trees, flowers and fruits were transplanted from the Isth mus of Tehuantepec and Central Amer ica to this garden, and there were grown cocoas, vanila, parota, yolloxo shlU, mecaxochltl and another rare flower which gives oil Its odor In the night. These plants and their friends were ingredients of the del’clous chocolates which were the favorite beverages of the Aztec lords when Cortes arrived. The garden was visited by Aeamapixie and Uhutcaralna, the second named be ing Identical with Montezuma. It Is claimed that Montezuma ilh-lcamlna appropriated this" beautiful garden to bis personal royal uses and pleasure. —Mexican Herald.

TOLD OF GALLIFFET ANECDOTES OF "ENFANT TER RIBLE" OF FRENCH ARMY. Once Ate a Wineglass on a Wager— How He Attempted to'Lead a Cavalry Charge Down a Steep Embankment ! \ r There Is hardly a Paris paper which does not every tew days print a story about the late Marquis General de Galllffet, who crowned' an adventur ous career hy accepting the portfolio of war Id the "Cabinet,'of Republican Defense” only to And himself face to faee with M, MUlerand, the socialist minister of commerce, whose, father Galllffet had once ordered to be ehoL Titet was during the Commune. "I forgive yota” said the son cor dially. “I had no idea be was such a bad father,” remarked 'the Marquie dryly, refusing to take, ttys proffered hand. A volume of Galllffetlana has been compiled M. Louis Thomas. Some of th'e irtorlea tpld of -and by the ?av alry officer, who was ah 'enfant ter rible" all his loa.g life, are new. Here Is a bet of Galllffet's:' "One evening, when I was quite a yofing officer, I bet that 'I would eat a wineglass, stem.and all, and’ 1. did. I-took some time about it,. blit I jite U. My mouth .was bleeding when 1 had done, .but I went to bed all right. At 3 in the morning 1 woke up in fearful pain. I tried to think what 1 had eaten, and- then I remembered. lt„.was the wineglass, of course. I proceeded to kick myself. 'Galllffet,’ I said, 'you're an ass. You were going to die for'your" country, and now, you are %olng to die In your bed, because of a driveling- and disgusting bet.' While 1 cursed myself . the pain stopped. I turned around, went to sleep and woke up fresh and fit.in the morning, and thought no more about the wineglass.” Some say that the pluck which Gal llffet certainly had can\e from a good digestion, which he cqrtalnly seems to have had also. Here is a military anecdote of him: "During some maneuvers he yraa watching, a charge of cavalry under his orders. Suddenly the leading squadron stopped dead. Gjlllffet roared, ‘Send me the colonel!' and be galloped up. " 'Now, colonel, what's wrong?' " 'We came upon a road at the bottom of an embankment too steep to-ride'down, sir.’ " 'Nonsense, sir! You are not fit for your fob. I will lead the charge. You-go to the tall of the squadron.' "Galllffet took the command, gal loped to the road and rolled down the embankment wi£h his horse. Ly ing on his back with a sprained mus cle In hts leg he shouted to his men to stop, adding, ‘Send me the. colonel.’ ¥he colonel came up from the tall of the squadron. 'Colonel, you were right; I am a blank fool. You may take the command of k your regiment again.’ ” Toward the end of his life, when In a bad temper, Galllffet Instated on calling himself a -played-out old Idiot. Joilrnallsts would try to Interview him, and he generally sjifm'cd them the door with a voluble speech. “No. sir. every one- known T am an Dr. P. C.
