Starr declares that through the south

for purposes of protection. Professoi
Starr, however, says:
"They are nothing more or less than
old baseball fields of the mound build

FIND OF INDIAN IDOLS.
Gold Specimens From Costa Rica at
That g'kl Idols are to be found by
the score In Indian burying grounds
in Costa Itlca *vas the report made to
the Smithsonian Institution, In Wash
ington. the other day by Emile Mosonyl,
a young Austrian mining engineer.
Mr. Mosonyl said he had been in the
country for about seven years, and, as
he bad made a point of cultivating the
friendship of the Indians, he bad been
able to learn much of their tribal his
tory and customs.
The golden Idols, he said, are buried
near the remains of tbe deceased, but
never In the graves. He explained the
fact of the failure of local Interests to
have already discovered the rich Aztec
relics by tbe fact that the graves are
never marked, not even by an earthen
mound. The Idols, he said, are found
burled In the earth, generally a short
distance from the graves.
Mr. Mosonyl hpd with him a few of
the Idols and several examples of tbe
Tndian art and said he called at the in

foods, sometimes induce the disease.
"As chronic gastritis (catarrh of the
stomach) is essentially a secondary

an unhealthy state of the mouth, nose
