While workmen were making some excavations at Mulavia recently they found a peculiar stone, says the Attica Press. It is about 2 1/2 inches and three-fourths of an inch thick, being of reddish color and of very smooth grain. Upon its surface were distinctly traced what are thought to be hieorglyphics, or unknown characters. The markings have been cut or scratched in the stone and E.G. Boughan, who obtained possession of the stone, sent it to Prof. Harper, of the Chicago University, who is considered authority on such things, and it is thought he may be able to give some idea as to whether the markings are natural or artificial.
