HE CLIFF Yi ELL EKS. 'a Race Lost to Memory Centuries Asr®. New York Po«t. Among the recent additions to the American Museum of Natural history are many casta of curious "cave bouses" or cliff dwellings, discovered by the Hayden Geological survey. These structures are of such evident an tiquity that a new epoch is formed which carries the exisisnce of man in this country to so remote a period that the "Mound Builder," of whom we know comparatively nothing, appears comparatively modern. Only these stony ruins remain to tell the story of a once powerful and semi-cultivated people. The first discoveries of these houses were made by Mr. A. D. Wilson, of the Hayden purvey, and later a special survey were detailed under Mr. W. H. Jackson, who returned with tho first authentic reports* According to Mr. Ingersol most of the ruins are found around the edge of the desert track formed by the triangulation of the rivers Bio Mancos, La Flata and Bio Ban Jaun. The San Juan and La Flata have a wid...

As they point to the new-Iound treasure "The baby must have a name!'1 They bring forth the names by dozens, With many an anxious look, They scan all the tales and novels. They search through the good Old Book, Till the happy-faced young mother, Xow urging her prior claim, Cries out in the fondest accents, "Oh give him a pretty name." "His grandpa was Ebenezer— Lone buried and gone, dear soul," Bays the trembling voice of grandma As the quiet tear-dropa roll. "Oh, call him Eugene Augustus," Says the youngest of the throng "Plain John," says the happy lather, "Is an honest name and strong.1' And thus is the embryo statesman Perhaps, or the soldier bold, Respecting his future title Left utterly out in the cold!

"No. I think not—I am quite sure not," added Amy Henderson, after a second or two of hesitation. He looked pleadingly at her. "But why not?"

"I don't know why I should get married. I am very happy as I am. Mamma says it is time enough for a girl to talk of matrimony when she is twenty years old, and I'm only six teen." "There," interrupted Carl, bitteriy, "that will do. I looked for an ocean of deep, solemn sweetness in your heart I find but a shallow pool, reflecting back but the shadow of transient events, and that is all. Good-bye, Amy forget that I have made a fool of myself—if you can." And he strode away, biting his lips and tearing at his long black moustache as he went. ...
