Xosatan ruins, which have Mood the weather

they resemble the architecture used at this
ery date In the construction of trust com

from the ruined group of Labra, a straight
arch from Uxmal and the "Facade of the
Serpent," from the same city. Three por
tions of the ruin, which the early Spaniards
nailed the "House of the Nuns, are repro
duoed. Mr. Thompson, after erecting the
Walls, returned to Yucatan for a collection ol
plants to place around them.
Near this group is a fao-aimlleof the homes
of the cliff dwellers of Utah, Colorado and
New Mexico, occupied long before those
lands resounded with the monotonous repeti

for free silver. The cliff dwellers' homes are
operated as a "concession," the builder put
ting them up at his own expense and reim
bursing himself by selling tlokeu of admis
