The Tools of the I gypUans.'
The ancient Egyptians l ad tools for stone
working equal to anything in use today.
They used both solid and tubular drills and
straight and circular saws. The drills were
set with jewels, probably corundum, and
even lathe tools had suih cutting edges.
So remarkably was the quality of the tubu
lar drills, it is said, and the skill of the
workmen, that the cutti lg marks in the
bard granite give no indication of the wear
of the tool, while a cut ol a tenth part of
on inch was made in the hardest rock at
each revolution, and a hole through both
the hardest and softest material was bored
perfectly smooth and uniform throughout.

tools nothing is known. New York Jour

SANDWICH ISLAND GIRLS.
Sort of Happv-tio-Lockr Uvea
The ladies attire themselves In the
Widen. The winn tropical climate
makes loose, flowing frowns a necessity.-
The young- girls wear wreaths
of wild flowers around tbetr brows
and decorate their bodies with chap
lets of green leaves. They do not use
gold jewelry, bat ornament their toilet
with the floral beauty of the tropica.
They are fond of out-door life and
live most at the time in the groves.
They sleep in hammocks under the
trees, and have their dances and
feasts in the grottoes of
the forests. They have little
huts in which they dwell during
storms, but are rarely found in their
cottages except it is rainy weather.
They build graas-thatched houses and
cover their roofs with rushes and
have wide porches in front of their
doors to keep off the heat of the san
They like to be near the sea, so they
can bathe in the waters of the ocean.
They become expert surf rider and
can scale the breakers in the wildest
storms. Like sea-gulls they ride the
tossing rollers and smile at the
ocean's maddest winds. In their little
boats they sail over the blue bosom of
the Pacific and cruise many miles
away from their island shores. Their
litO.e craft cross the channels from
island to island and visit all the ports
in the archipelago. They are not
afraid of the ocean solitudes, but are
at home on its watery wastes ana find
delight in Us expanse of blue.
