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.

Cucumbers Yield $900 Per Acre.
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
