    It appears others are winding up to increase in the search for the Lost City. There is a TV program that's going to do a special on the Death Valley Giants. Other parties are searching the hills now too. I guess the race is on! Last one there had better bring a case of beer!
    In it for the thrill of the Hunt!

    This one isn't in Death Valley, but it echoes the initial post:

    A CITY IN THE DESERT.

    THE DISCOVERY OF A PATRY [sic] OF YUMA PROSPECTORS.

    In Searching for the Pegleg Mine They Came Across the Ruins of a City Built by a Prehistoric Race.

    San Diego, July 22. The ruins of a prehistoric city have just been discovered by a party of prospectors from Yuma, while on the Colorado desert in search of the Peg-Leg mine. The wind had laid bare the walls and remains of stonebuildings for a distance of 420 feet in length by 260 feet in width. Gigantic pillars, quaintly carved to represent dragons' heads and rattlesnakes, still stand in the sands of the desert, supporting on their tops huge slabs of granite weighing many tons. The frieze ornamentation resembled Egyptian sculpture and exhibited a greater degree of skill than is possessed by the Indian artisans of the present day.

    Fragments of pottery were found underneath the debris, and together with a crumbled piece of frieze, were brought by Hank Ferguson, one of the prospectors, to this city. One of his associates came to San Diego and the others returned to Yuma nearly two weeks ago, but the story of their discovery was carefully guarded in the hope that in some way they might profit by it. Ferguson called the matter to the attention of H. C. Gordon, who interested John H. Gay, jr., a wealthy man of this city, in the discovery and a week ago yesterday, in company with four others, they went to the desert to explore the rivers. They were driven back by a sandstorm, reaching this city today, but will make a careful examination of the rivers later in the season, when the conditions are favorable for an extended exploration.

    From the relics exhibited it is evident that an important archaeologicaldiscovery has been made.

    I first posted that article in the Pegleg Thread. I recommend reviewing that, as there was a follow-up post to it:

    Do you have good books in good condition you are never going to re-read? Clean 'em out!
