One of tbe most interesting proofs of tbv wonderful civilization of tbe an rtents is afforded by tbe great slab of itone at Baalbec, In Syria. Tbls bugs monolith Is sixty-ctDe feet long, four teen feet broad and seventeen feet in depth. It is said to be tbe largest piece of stone ever quarried and its estimat ed weight is 1,500 tons. It is thought by archaeological schol ar that tbls huge stone was Intended by tbe ancient builders to adorn tbe Temple of the Sun near by now, of course, in ruins. Here in one of tbe walls which still stand are to be seen huge slabs of stone, wbicb careful measurements show to be sixty-three feet long and thirteen feet high. And, more remarkable still, tbey are placed in position nineteen feet above the ground level. Moreover, although no sign of any cementing mixture is to be found in these ancient buildings. tbe stones bare been squared and pol ished so evenly that only after tbe most minute search can the Joints be found and when traced it is Impossible to thrust tbe blade of a pocket knife between tbem! now these things were done is a standing mystery to tbe scientist Wide World Magazine. ul'ar disk of bronze was used' at least as early s tbe beginning of tbe fifth century. A standard weight must of course, be assumed for tbe great games. A discus now In tbe British museum, which seems to bave been used, weighs 11 pounds 9 ounces, but whether tbls was tbe standard weight or not is not definitely known. Tbe thrower took bis stand npon a slight elevation of limited circumfer ence, where be could bave a secure foothold and was prevented from run ning. Then, with a swing of tbe arm and a corresponding movement of the whole body, be hurled tbe discus aa far as possible. Tbe value of tbe body movement was recognized by tbe sculptor Myorn in his famous statue, "The Discobo lus," and is understood by the modern athlete wben be swings tbe hammer or even when be makes a drive at golf. , THROWING THE DISCUS. Methods of the Greoian Athlete In Homerio Times. Discus throwing was a refined form of burling tbe stone. In Homeric times, and even at Olympla, a stone or mass of Iron was first used for tbe purpose.
