Gifford, assistant curator at the Museum of Anthropology, Uni versity of California, an authority on Kaster Island; and one of the Imago* carved out by the natives; also a portion of one of'the ruined platforms. ; __ I SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 1.—Easter Island, the riddle of the Pacific! Sit uated 2,000 miles from the nearest continent, rock-bound and storm swept, this small, desolate island, the farthest outpost of the Polynesian group, has earned the title of "The Mystery of the Parifio.'' This sphinx of the oceans and its nearly extinct inhabitants have proven a baffling problem to scientists and explorers of modern times. It is said by some to be the remnant of a submerged continent and declared by others only to have been inhabited by an ad vanced race of natives. The Easter Islanders were the only natives of the Pacific Islands who had developed the art of writing. Their inscriptions are on wooden tablets and bear a re markable resemblance to ancient Babylonian. These hieroglyphics have never been deciphered. This mysterious people was a race of idol worshippers and had mastered to some degree the art of sculpture and masonry. On the island, which is about fifty square miles in extent, are immense platforms facing the sea, formed of large stones fitted together. some of which weigh five tons, and ’ in places the sea side of the walla are thirty feet high and over 200 feet long. On theso platforms stand colos sal figures carved out of lava from an extinct crater, eight miles away. On some of these bases were a dozen images, each carved in human sem blance, now thrown from their pedes tals. The largest are thirty five feet • high and weigh fifty tons, ujt the most of them range from fourteen to sixteen feet. There is as much spec- % ulation as to the method of trans porting these huge, ungainly idols as there is as to the construction of the pyramids. There are also remains of stone houses 100 feet long by twenty feet high and it was to dis cover the origin of these that W. Scoresby Routledge, English explorer, 4 went to the island last year. Strange- ' ly enough these advances toward civilization 00 Easter Island went hand in hand with cannibalism and warfare of the most relentless and bloodthirsty kind. The question Is: Who will solve the riddle of Easter Island? Science is waiting for the answer. KILLS SUICIDE GERM BY MENTAL SUGGESTION PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1.—The Rev. Zed Hetzel Copp. pastor of the Cohocksink Presbyterian Church, tells of saving the lives of would-be sui cides by his method of mental sug gestion. It is his boast that never has he “lost a patient.” “Hopelessness,” said the minister, "is usually the direct cause of suicide. Financial difficulties; the loss of dear friends or relatives; the enforced re linquishment of an overmastering ambitions because of ill health pro duced by overwork; the 'wreck of things' which is the fate of men who have broken away from the leading strings of morality, and many other conditions cause the hopelessness which almost invariably precedes sui cide. Then comes a temporary in sanity, and the deed is done.” “TED” COY, FOOTBALL HERO, WINS A BRIDE ASHEVILLE, N. C.. Sept. 1.—The tactics that, won fame for Edward H. ("Ted”) Coy on the football field have been successful In winning for him as a bride Miss Sophie Meldrim, daughter of Peter W. Meldrim, an attorney, of Savanhah, Ga.

Y„ j Sept. 1.—Five women and two men bobbed up and down in the Hudson river for twenty-five minutes yester day while a man of their party fought flames on board their burning motor boat Snow Bird and a crowd on shore tried to aid them.

ON A PARROT’S MURDER EVIDENCE, TWO ARE HELD PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1.—Two policemen were startled at the De lancey street station when they heard m shrieks of “Murder!" They rushed across to 510 South Front street and there found Joseph Kaluk, aged 24, with his abdomen slit and two men just about to leap over the rear fence. Standing on a chair nearby was an old green parrot, with a wing broken, it is thought, in the affray. The police caught Alexander Kundre and Joseph Betinsky and they were brought back to the house where Kaluk lay unconscious. The moment w the parrot saw the two men it again broke into shrill cries of "Murder!" On the evidence of the bird alone the prisoners were locked up without bail to await the result of Kaluk’s injuries. BUFFALO BILL BROKE CHICAGO.
