At Least 2,000 Years Old, Says an Enthusiastic Investigator. George Monaghan, who has been making cement near Flora Vista and t who has been a resident of this coun i ty for many yeara,:left overland Sun day for Siloam Springs, Ark. Dur ing his residence here Mr. Monaghan has Investigated many of the ancient Aztec ruins and his views on the subject may be of interest. "The extent of the ruins of this de parted race," said he, "are much greater than is commonly supposed. I have dug in ruins from the upper San Juan into Vtah and from the Mancos into Arizona. In San Juan county, over on the La Tlata near the coal mines, is an area of 10 miles long by to 4 wide that is dotted with ruins. These ruins are marked in most places by a square of stones, just appearing above the grass roots. Digging into theje J have found skulls, bones, pottcy, turquoise, corn and, strange to say, a pair of perfect ly preserved rooster legs, with long spurs. I have als'oTound cigar hold ers, showing that tobacco was known to this race, and cloth made from feathers and fiber. "The bodies of this people of the long ago were always buried in wood ashes and in many positions. Around the heads I have -j ct found pottery containing orn, which no doubt contained other food. It was near a skull that I found the rooster legs. Explorers claim that if the ashes near the heads were Bifted many turquoise and other precious stones could be found, presumably worn as ornaments. I have found hones at five feet depth, then five feet of clay and more bones and skulls, and yet another layer of clay and more bonus. "On some of these ruins I have cut large cedar trees and after dressing with a plane hav myself taken a magnifying glass and counted as high as fifteen hundred growths, showing that the ruins are at least l,.rU0 years old with no account, of the time elapsing before tre tree grew upon the ruin. Most of the calculations as to the age this Aztec race nourished are wrong, but a guess of 2,000 years would not be under the right esti mate." Growing, pushing, alive Aztec. W. H.

The soil that suits the cucumber best is our average Colorado sandy loam, the eper the better. A light, sandy soil, if shallow, or a heavy loam or4day had better" be given up to some other crop. New soii is generally considered the most desirable and if other conditions are favorable, it is, but new land alone will not yield profitable retinues, how ever lavish nature may have been in its preparation. After harrowing, the ground is marked out well with a small plow in rows four feet apart each way. At the crossing of the furrows, which murks the hills, 'a shovel of well com posted manure should be worked in and covered lightly with soil. K rom six to ight seeds arc dropped in a hill. Cover the seeds not deeper than one- fourth inch with soil made fine and pressed firmly over them with the hoe or feet. This completes the first im portant step in cultivation. As so.in as two leaves appear, the battle begins with bugs on every plant if neglected. A cultivator should go over the ground once eacli way uetore I lie plains appear and just as the weeds break through the soil. The surface should be stirred fre quently by the cultivator and especially after each irrigation. This necessary to prevent evaporation. As soon as the plants are nicely growing mid thinned out to four in the hill lay aside the cul tivator. In its place use u fine rake which should not stir the soil deeper than one inch. Otherwise the damage is irreparable as the roots run out as far us the vines and to cut them oír is to de stroy the plant's efforts to reproduce. The plants will have mude but little growth before insect enemies appear and a constant warfare must be kept up. For the destruction of lice, tobacco dust is generally effective and for the striped beetle paris green in very small (plant i- ties is il specific. Before the plants be gin to flower, spraying must begin. To wait until blight begins its fatal work is to risk the crop. The ends of the vines should be. pinched off soon after they be gin to (lower to encourage the growth of laterals which produce the fruits. Some growers plant every fifth row, running cast and west, with corn which affords partial shade ,nnd they assert that this is a great benefit. Cucumbers grown for (crinan pickles ure picked when from four to (ve inches long mid these often bring more than small ones, but it is a question whether it is not more profit able to grow the smaller size because of the greater number the vines will produce. Intense cultivation, which means systematic culture, is pro fitable, as the yield is from iluO.OOO to 100,000 pickles to the acre. A grower must gr over his fields of cucumbers early every morning, regardloss of wea ther, or some will become too large and aside from the market value the plan W will cease bcartnjt On the other hand, if the cucumbers are kept constantly cut when small the vines will continue ,0 bear for longer period, Field, all'' Spring Shirts W.l."...'.1l.Witl!ieHtf.T-J.'HCT'-at - .gl,.''H.WilWPMI. f y Mtmm Our Stock of Spring and Summer Negligee Shiils comprise everything that fashion decrees in plain open front with cuffs attached or detached f ("Vint front wilh cuffs attiiched or detached in light, dark or medium colors Wilson Bros.
