Letters like these testify to the value of the Vegetable Compound. These women apeak from the fullness of their hearts. They describe as correctly aa they can their conditions: First, those symptoms that affected them most conspicuously; and later the disappearance of those symptoms.

A reproduction of a Hopl village will be constructed of light material, but without a detail lacking, g even to the meat hanging from walls. With such a background, the white men perform a dance they hope to preserve from the altering hand of time, says a writer In Popular Mechanics magazine. It is desired to add to and expand this Indian pageantry so that by 1926, when the rest of America Is rehearsing t the landing of the Pilgrims, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and the founding of New Amsterdam by the Hollanders 300 years ago, there will be In the Southwest a pageant going back still farther. It may deal with the Indian account of the creation something oddly like our own biblical one. It will seek to probe the history, buried In legends, fireside tales, myths, religious rites and tribal traditions that hold the key to the earliest inhabitants of the southern Rocky mountains. : : - . y .

Moreover, these be great days for the archeologists. Diggers are hard at work pretty much over all the earth. And iqpny curious things do their shovels turn up. And every now and then chance turns up something ancient that sets the diggers busy on a new quest. Its an uninteresting newspaper these days that does not contain some kind of a "Tut story" from some unknown or forgotten place of earth.

The University of Pennsylvania is carrying on work In four places In Egypt and Palestine Memphis, Thebes, Belsan and Ur. Belsan was hoary with age when an Egyptian Pharaoh of 1600 B.

Riggs, has left Rio Gallegos, In southern Argentina, for a five-yeexploration into the Interior of mysterious Patagonia in search of fossils of the tertiary age. Incidentally 'the cagoans hope to find traces of the two lost cities, the City of the Caesars and the Enchanted City, which are famous In the legendary hisland. Also they would like to tory of this far-of- f meet some of the fanciful prehistoric monsters which every so often are reported. Dr. J. G. Wolfe, curator of the Regional museum at Rio Gallegos, Buys he has seen ruins 3,000 or 4,000 years old. Jt was Dr. Wolfe who reported the finding of a fossil skull In sandstone rock of tertiary formation and therefore something like 3,000,000 years old. Between 50 and 60 cases of archeological treasure, described by Thomas Hastings, the architect, as the most magnificent material that ever has come out of Asia Minor, have been received by the Metropolitan Museum of Art These materials come from Sardis, ancient capital of Croesus, and other Lydian kings. It was here that 30 gold coins of Croesus, tlie earliest gold coinage of the world, were found by American excavators last spring. Football, baseball, bowling, dice and Jacks had their origin In Lydia, according to classical accounts. The oldest objects found may be relics of the Hittltes, according to Dr. Butler, who are known to have been In this region as early as 3,006 years before Christ. The Russian explorer, Koslof, has started from Moscow under soviet auspices to complete his researches In the ancient capital of Mongolian civilisation, Kharakhoto, which has been for more than a thousand years In the sands of the Central Aslan desert. He says It was a mighty city whose civilization far outsfripped that of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

A Venetian funeral displays that picturesque and romantic character which has always been associated with the ceremonies of the city, which still remains one of the most religious places In Italy, says Wide World Magazine. The grandeur of the special funeral barge varies, of course, with the means of the family, those hired by the wealthy being very magnificent. Such a barge is 50 feet in length and propelled by four gondoliers In uniforms of black velvet.
