are duplicated today by the 1est me
chanical means and the most skilled
artisans. Their pottery is unsurpas-
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.

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

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
