EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 13 June 1914

EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. Vnrlous authorities havo ascribed to tho ruins in Yucatan an age of from 1000 to 11,000 years. These fig ures are based on data derived from calendar stones preserved in many places both in Yucatan and In neigh boring regions such as Mexico and Guatemala. Tho Btones can be deci phered with considerable accuracy, nnd exact dateB can be assigned to the construction of many buildings. The only trouble Is that the dateB belong to the various local eras of the dif ferent countries, and no one knows when a single one ot the eras began. This Ignorance affords an ample field for speculation. There are, however, strong reasons for believing (writes Ellsworth Huntington In "Harper's Magazine") that the ruins date back a long tlmo before the coming of the Spaniards. Two of tne strongest of these reasons are that when the Span iards came to Yucatan, early in tho sixteenth century, tho Mayas, in the first place, were a slow, mild, unpro grcssive people, utterly diffe...

HER BONNET. When mealing hells began to toll, Anil pious folkB began to pasB^ She deftly tied her bonnet on. The Holier meeting lass, All In her neat, white-curtained room,' before her tiny, ^ooking-glaas. So nicely round Iter lady cheeks, She smoothed hor bands of glossy Imlr, And Innocently wondered If Her bonnet did not make her fair; Then sternly chid her foolish heart for harboring such fancies there. So square she tied the satin strings, And set the hows beneath her chin. Then smiled to see how sweet sho looked, Then thought her vanity a sin, ' And she must imt stlch thoughts away before the sermon should begin. But, sitting 'neuth the preached word, i Demurely In her father's pew, She thought about her bonnet still, Yes, all the parson's sermon through, About Its pretty bows and buds, which better than the text she knew.
