When seen from the ravine it has
the form of a giant pyramid, while
from another view it resembles an
enormous cone. It is 21 feet long
and 28 feet high and its weight is
judged to be I2 0OO bundled weight
or 625 tons.
From tte distance the e'ane pre
sents a peculiar aspect. It is so
1 gtitly poieed oa the reck dope that
it seems as if one were watching a
.-tone roll down a email base. But
when this swinging rock is ap
proached one is astonished by a
new wonder. The stone can be set
n mo ion ty merely pushing it
with the hand. Very often the trav-
ler is spared even the trouble of
pushirg the stone, as the wind will
cause it two swing.
idarly in the nineteenth century
the Argentine republic wrs rulled
by the dictator, Rosa with, unparal
leled ciuelty lor about .25 years., To
show his supreme power the tyrant
ordered that the stone be encircled
witb. ropes and many horses to be
harnessed to these ropes, but the
the ttone could not be moved one
inch from it resting place.

men who compose the grand jury
heard some evidence ' against St.
John, but it was, evidently tot suf
ficient upon which to indict, , '
Now that the long-looked for in
dictments have been returned, the
next move in the slowly rolling
mills of justice will be the arraign
ment of. the prisoners. They will
be brought here tomorrow morning,
and will be gi?en a chance to plead
to the indictments. That they will,
ail save Orchard, plead i ot guilty
goes without 68ying.
. Undoubtedly, before their pLa is
entered, Attorney-s Nugent 8iid Mil
ler, with Attorney E. F. Richard
son, who will arrive f-om Denver
tomorrow, will move u quash the
indictments. The defena ants' at

add to their reputations When tte r
clients appear in court.
Bdcausa of the night session, held

t y signed the indictments, it was
lieved .here that the prisoners
uld arrive from Boise this morn

Most of the county officials left
here tonight for Boise and will act
as escort for the prisoners. There
is some talk of bringing the indict
ed men here by special train, but it
is more than likely that they will
come on the "Pony." One thing is
sure, Orchard will not make up the
party. If he is brought on the train
ne will ne macea in anotner car

the other prisoners.
