Wrapped in their pitched shrouds and encased in sarcophagi covered with curious paintings and hierogly phics in colors still bright after three thousand years and more, these mummies, all that was mortal of a human being of ages ago, today link the present to a civilization long since dead. j The daily center of thousands ofi curious eyes, for the mummies seem j to hold a strange fascination for cv. ; ery visitor to the museum, they arre silent spectators of the passing' throngs, but the paintings which! adorn their resting places tell more' plainly than words of stvles. phh. ; toms and manners of a forgotten age Why, ma. they're dressed inst like the girls we see on Michigan boulevard," exclaimed an aged vis itor to his wife as he gazed at the strange figures adornine the sar cophagi' "It appears like they did not wear a bit more then than they do now," the woman answered as the pair moved away It is a far cry from the Nile of Cleoprtra's day to the Pacific coast of 1'eru in South America, but mum mies from both reirions lvinrr almost. within reach of each other now, but in life ignorant of each others' ex istence, bear graphic evidence of the greatest similarity and proficiency in many arts at a time when the Norsmen were ravaging all of South ern Europe and the old world had almost sunk into barbarism. Dv J. Alden Mason, assistant curator nf Mexico and South American anthol ogy at the Museum has prepared an ouotline of the known historv of the Peruvian Mummjes. Both wove cloths in everv weave known to the modern textile artists and made in some cases, finer than are duplicated today by the 1est me chanical means and the most skilled artisans. Their pottery is unsurpas- PAGE sed even today in its type- and! their work in gold and copper challenges the modern craftsman. Unlike the Egyptians, the Peruvians used no process of embalming,, but so dry were the sands of certain of their deserts that the dry bodies with their wrappings around them, have been preserved perfectly to this day with the objects placed around them. ! Near the town of Aeon on Hip j coast of Peru was found the great4 I est cemetery of these Deonle. A great desert waste, no evidence of occupation is seen on the surface, j Even When the first Spanish con- ! querer passesd this wav in 1533 ev, ; ery vestage of human occupation had I entirely disappearred and the loca i tion of the town was quite forgot j ten. It was not until about sesven- ty years ago that the first graves were discovered and for half a cen tury they have yielded fortunes to treasure seekers who despoiled them to recover the golden ornaments left beside the bodies- And now the mummies of both of these peoples tell of strange simi larities in style, adornment, manners and industries to those of the pre sent generation. It is a linking of the past to the present which holds a peculiar attrraction, for the mum mies, lying in silent state, are the most popular exTTibit for the thou sands of visitors who daily crowd the museum.

The local police department for some time has been severely criti cised for inefficiency.

War Risk Insurance Made Woman Rich By Associated Press.) Philadelphia, Sept. 2 An old pea sant woman was made the richest woman in her village by a letter from the War Risk Insurance Bu reau of the American government. The incident is told by a member of the Friends' Relief Mission in Po land who writes: "We were just driving into the town of Hrubieszow in the war-ravaged district of Poland when a pea sant woman, clad in rags, and bare- tion of the legislature and several years since -tRe forwarding to Wash ington of Florida's Civil War hero, many persons here are desiroous of having the Kirby-Smith . statue for mally presented the government, ac cepted and unveiled. footed, came up "to the wagon and presented a letter which she could not read. It proved to be from the War Risk Insurance Bureau at Washington, stating that her son had died in the American army and that his insurance would come to her for 20 years, at the rate of S25 a month'. Already there was SflOO waiting foro her, which would be sent shortly by check. "The woman's face was shadowed as she heard of her son's death but it brightened with amazement when she heard of the money. The son had not. been heard from for three Vears and his death had been taken for granted. She had other chil dren and they had all been living in a dugout, with no wood for hnililino- a house and no implements to farm witn and only a diet of rye and po tatoes. "The $900 in American money makes, at the present rate of ex-1 change, over 1,500,000 Polish marks and would make her the richest woman in the village and probably in the country. "I consulted the postmaster for her and he said that when she mnAn her mark upon the check the local bank would pay her the monev. On. ly, of course, no local bank would h able to cash so large a check without first getting the money from War- saw. "This is a fair examDle of the dif ference in exchange between Amer ica and Poland." WOULD MAKE RESTAURANT . OF LUSITANIA'S DESTROYER (By Amoplated Press.)

Kirbv-Smith in the Hall of Fame at Washington, and the statue has been in its place in the national capitol a number of years, the Federal government nev er has accepted it officially nor has it been unveiled- Persons here interested in the statue are asking why there has been no acceptance and what has been done toward preparations for the ul- timae unveiling.
