Symbolism in Eggs.
Among the curiosities recently ac
quired by the department of Egyp
tian and Assyrian antiquities in the
British Museum is an ostrich egg
pierced for suspension and covered
with traces of a painted design, prob
ably of a predynastic 'period. Accord
ing to the experts of the department,
this egg is certainly nearly six thou
sand years old, as the design was
made not later than B. C. 4,000. The
egg of the ostrich is said to have pos
sessed some religious significance
even in the predynastic period.Lon
Three Ways of Dressing Hair.
Some of the New Hebrides people
do their hair up in a bunch on the
topvof the head and stain it. yellow,
while the inhabitants of Ombai island
pass it all through a tube so as to
make a kind of plume. The Marquesas
chief's favorite method is to shave all
the head except two patches, one over
each temple, where lie cultivates two
horns of hair. No doubt this is to
render him more a thing of terror to
his enemies than of admiration to his
friends. His reason for shaving tho
rest of the head is to allow more space
for tattooing, as if all the available
i skin of the body were not enough.

BI CHIE FROM
Editor of Big Fork Compass
Visits in Bemidji for First
Time in Year.
WILL REMAIN IN BEMIDJI UN-
TIL LATTKK PART OF WEEK
jGoi Package of Laundry This
Morning That He Left in City
Almost a Year Ago.
j. A. M. i ivelr). of EJipple,
jntjwspaper nraif, poet and pio-
neer, is down from the Big Pork
county for a visit with friends
[and-will remain until the latter
jpart of the present week. Mr.
Greeley was U'V Some time one
of the publishers of the Pioneer
and lias hosts of friends i this
.city,"who will be pleased see
Per some time past he has
been publishing tho 15ig Pork
Compass a hlipple posatoffice
near tin- falls of tho I \\g Pork
river, one of the most picturesque
spots in all northern Minnesota.
'The paper oa rrTrsTvn an ^average
of ihreo nages of Legal in each
issue and is a money making
proposition that would tempt
any newspaper man in pioneer it
for a number Of years at least.
The paper is also widely read ami
has a reputation throughout tho
state that Mr. Greeley is himself
unable to realize. His exchange
list- numbers hut one daily news
paper tho Duluth News-Tribune,
yethis original column "Slight
Variations of the Needle" is one
of tho most widely copied indi
vidual efforts of any newspaper
man in the state. It is Written
in a quaint, yet pleasing and ef
fective styleand'handlos fact and
incidont in an original manner
that is highly entertaining.
Mr. Greeley is a horn pioneer/.
He enjoys living at Kipple and
publishing his paper, a fact that
is attested by tho circumstance
that sumo of his host work has
been dune in this environment.
He has a well eipdpped printing
office and when business at the
office is dull there is no one to
toll the editor that he can't go
out hunting or fishing at his own
free will or do anything else he
wishes to. Mr. Greeley has not
been in Bemidji for a year until
this morning. He did not realize
the fact that he had been so Long
in the woods lie says until he
went down to the laundry office
this morning and got a package
of laimdry that, he had left there
when he was in Bemidji lasi
December. Up to date there are
no steam Laundries at Ripple ami
the ladies of that vicinity have
not :rq tu-T-utLUu^ur-t-of "doing up
biled shirts" so Mr. Greeley has
this necessary little function
performed in liomidji.
Speaking of the north country
he said that' it is the hope of
everyone in that vicinity that the
railroad will build north next
summer as it will mean much
fh-' country. There is every as
surance that it will be extended
from Northorne in the spring".
Many settlers are coming in at
present and both Ripple and
tCoochiching are towns with a
"uture. Tin.' latter has one of
the most magnificent water low
ers in tho world when it can nn
allv bo developed. An obstacle
to this at present is the ques
tions regarding rigLits and own
erships growing out of the fact
that it is an international water
way and the Canadian and Amer
ican capitalists, who are interest
ed in its development cannot
agree upon terms.
