"About two hundred yards from this building" (Casa Grande), he says, "was a mound in a circle a hundred yards around; the center was a hollow 25 yards in diameter, with two vamps, or slopes, going down to its bottom. It was probably a well, now partly filled up ; a similar one was seen near Mount Dallas. A few yards farther in the same direction, northward, was a terrace...

A Tagal woman had learned this from her Chinese husband, and betrayed it to her father-confessor, who, of course, had nothing more urgent to do than to inform the Gobernador.

It would seem to correspond in the character of its fossil plants with the oldest Cretaceous floras recognized in Europe and Asia, and with that of the Kome formation in Greenland, as described by Heer.
Seite 177 - That on placing a fish of this species, just caught, into a pail of water, it fixed itself so firmly to the bottom, that on taking it by the tail, the whole pail by that means was lifted, though it held some gallons, and that without removing the fish from its hold.
