Ancient treasures have become the common legend of even* Indian ruin .in Mexico, particularly since the discovery a year ago of a valuable collection of gold ornaments and Jewels In the Mlxtec tomb of Monte Alban. More treasures have been uncovered slnc.o then In "White Mountain," homo of Mlxtec and SSnpolec civilizations.

Tlie excavations were resumed this month with the finding of many finely carved jades., Ten tombs are being investigated on the Portress mountain. The Sterne slabs which the Indians refused to let go were from an Indian city which was tho capital of the Za- potec kingdom when the Spaniards uame in 1521, on the site of modern Zauchlla. Some of tho carved slabs were in the modern village pavement and others in the masonry of an old church.
