MEXICO. The City's Romantic Origin. The story of the founding of the City of Mexico is on- of the most extraor dinary tales in history, jt happened in 1325: at least, it began a long time before that, but was an accomplished fact about six hundred years ago.. In the first place, imagine an almost inaccessible mountain, crowned with a valley at a height of S000 feet above the level of the sea. In the centre of this valley was an immense lake. When the Aztecs arrived, led by the priests of the god of war, they found it in possession of hostile tribes. For that reason, and because the >ricsts declared that in a certain part if the lake where there stood an eleva ion of stones an eagle had been seen evouring a serpent, they began the -instruction of the city on this spot nmeaiately over the depest waters ol le lake. There had long existed a prophecy :ong the Aztecs that their wander ;s would end when they should have ached a place where the priests >ald behold an eagle resting on ...
