That J. E. E. Markley and his aughter, Miss Doris Markley, vagabonding in the orient" eached the "lost city 1 ' of Angkor Vat in Indo-China and spent several ays viewing the ruins of the mag- ificent palaces and temples, re- ently discovered in the midst of a ungle, is the story told in a letter rom the Mason City attorney. When the Markleys left on theii ourney to the orient they had no nformation as to how Angkor night be reached and a letter writ- en on board ship indicated that no urther light had been thrown on 2 possible approach to this mys- erious city. "We sail on this boat to the end f the line at Manila." Mr. Markley vrote. "Beyond Manila we will go o Angkor Wat, but how or when we do not know. Since I first saw a picture of Angkor, 'the magnifi- ent.' and learned of its mysterious rigin and desertion by its builders have wanted to see it. Everybody ve talk with has a different view as o the time of going and the manner of approach. Some say go by way of Hongkong, others by way of Manila and Saigon, others by Sangkok, others by way of Singapore and air lines. All agree as to he mosquitoes, flies and other insect life and all agree they were .hrilled by the spectacle." Went Through Hongkong. The later communication brought out that the route through Hong- kong and Saigon was chosen in the journey to Angkor. "We" drove from Saigon to Ang- kor, stopping over night at the cap. ital of Cambodia," the letter be- ffins. May Wed Prince ruin was found and this vastness of artisic beauty discovered. French Clear Jungles. "The French have done wonders in clearing up the jungle in and around the temples and ruins and in making them accessible to the tourist public. It is the fact that these temples, by far the largest in the world, were lost 1or so long and the race of people who built them perished from the earth that awakens a romantic interest-in the subject. "As you wander about some of the more dilapidated ruins the monkeys jump from tree to tree and scold. When the ruins first came to light, hunters pursuing elephants, tigers and rhinoceros found they were making homes for themselves under the shelter of temple walls. "It is the miles of delicate artistic sculptures which adorn the walls, especially of Angkor Wat, that excite our wonder-- the struggle between the good and evil powers-the wars with elephants, horses and men armed with spears and bows and arrows, the procession of the elephants, all the numberless carvings so beautifully executed and so extensive, covering miles of wall all well preserved. "The great wall of China, 2.100 miles long, was a greater engineering problem and performance than Angkor, and the ruins at Karnak on the Nile and about the old city of Thebes present a higher problem m engineering and in moving great columns of stone, but the history written in the miles of sculpture upon these walls makes us wonder where the artists could be found to perform it all. Travel 900 Miles to Hun "When we returned to Saigon from Angkor we learned that our return trip was delayed a week by cancellation of sailing we had Jliss Margareta Brambcck, em- ploye of a dressmaking establishment in Stockholm, Sweden, may marry a. prince. According to European reports, Prince Bertil ot Sweden is seeking permission from his grandfather, King Gus- luv, to wed Miss Brambeek. Permission is not expected to bo given and the prince may risk losing his heritage liy such a marriage. "We -went over very good automobile roads. The old Mandarin roads used for thousands of years and wide enough for a sedan chair and possibly an ox cart have been widened and macadamized or oiled so as to make a really good road. The country is planted to rubber, sugar cane, tobacco, com, and of course mostly rice. "The people are different from those in north China and India. They live in houses built of poles and palm leaves, about six feet above the ground. There is water nearly everywhere as the land is simply an alluvial deposit brought down from the eastern side of the Himalaya mountains. There are many canals and at places we were ferried across great rivers. "As you approach Angkor you get into a jungle country with great akes and no hills or mountains. You can tell the various tribes or classes by their dress, the color and also the manner of wearing it, which has persisted through, the centuries. The Annarnites seem to be the most numerous and are very industrious. They dress entirely in black with a white oval Chinese cooly sort of hat. Work Done by Buffalos. "The work is done by various dnds of buffalo--the water buffalo and a brown and white buffalo with humped shoulders. There are many wild buffaloes, tigers, leopards, monkeys, and, they say, elephants and rhinoceros. The jungle is of such a nature as to be almost a sure protection/We saw many monkeys, apes, wild peacocks and all kinds of water birds. The various kinds of heron, white, black, blue, etc., all stood calmly in the water by the Bright Last-Minute Creations! cd.nuuiiin.ivii vi ^-u......,., - counted upon, so we hired an automobile and drove about flOO miles north, over mountains, mostly and along the coast. At Hue. the cap : ital of Annam, there was to be a celebration which occurs once m five years--some sacrificial ceremony--so we headed for Hue. "It was a very scenic way over range after range of mountains and across many bridges and ferries. We saw the parade of elephants gorgeously caparisoned and the palanquins and sedan chair carrying all the Mardarins of the Annam kingdom. The king, a young man educated in France, rode in a gorgeous palanquin caried by many 'men. We had engaged, or supposed we had engaged, hotel rooms but when we reached Hue we found we could get no rooms at the hotel but were assigned improvised rooms in the state university building. Trip Interesting. "The ,trip was interesting al- for a clay or two and done into dock. Why Build Them. "After viewing the ruins about the world one wonders why men should employ their time in building them. No doubt pride, which is said to be the first of the seven cardinal sins prompts man to endeavor to outdo all others. Only despotic fervor could engage the men and do the work. Probably millions of men labored unto death to execute the commands of despotic kings and emperors. "It is said that the great wall of China is the greatest graveyard of the world because the conscripted workmen who died there from exposure or disease were buried in the wall. 'Sic transit gloria mundi.'" School Addition Work at Dows Progressing DOWS--The work of the addition to the schoolhousc is progressing rapidly. The bricklaying is to be finished and the foreman.

On the next to the last night a dark fierce-looking Moii Indian tried to stop our car on a mountain grade. The next morning our guide reported another car was held up a little later and said it was dangerous to ride over the road at night. This one tribe of Indians is suspected of killing anyone who may go unguarded and alone into the jungles. They are certainly a fierce-looking lot and wear little if any clothes.

"They say you can shoot tiger, panther, etc., by putting a spotlight on your head and making your way into the jungle at night; the light reveals the red glow of the animal's eyes and all you have to do is to shoot. This did not appeal to me nor did the offer to take me out where I would be sure to get a tiger,--only spending four days with mosquitoes in the jungles! "No doubt Indo-China has been the home of the elephant for thousands of years and it was from this country that the great rnoguls got and trained the thousands of ele- gants they used in the great bat- .les of India and Cathay. See Angkor Wat. "We saw Angkor Wat--Angkor the magnificent. We lingered about the ruins for four days. It is hot at Angkor and the great masses of stone in the temples and ruins heat up so much with the eternal tropical sun's rays that we quit the ruins about halt past ten, bathed, lunched and lay by until half past 3 or 4 o'clock, then stayed out until dark. Nearly 600 of these ruins (if you can call them ruins--for Angkor Wat is not a ruin but almost perfect. Most of the other temples are ruins) have been discovered in the neighborhood here, and more are being found and reported by hunters who venture into the jungle for ° "Much has been said and written about these ruins because they have excited the curiosity and imagination of the world. No doubt Angkor Wat alone is much larger than any other single temple in the world but size alone would not arouse the interest of the traveler and the scientist. The strange thing is that there is no record in history of this wonder. They Built Temples. "It is supposed that in ancient Cambodia there was a rich courageous, prosperous people called Khmers who attained a high degree of civilization ann built all these marvelous temples. Then suddenly the people became extinct. They left no history except these magnificent buildings. "Whether they were eradicated by seme more powerful people is not known.
