"HARK, FROM THE .TOMBS!" a melio rnox Kavt'T-Tnaeti THOVBAXn YKAKMOID. Unwrapping s Mummy by the ScUntlflo Society Keeently cause iiranup""" Wat the Olft or Mm. r. x. mumh Bridgeport Standard. The art of embalming the bodies of the dead In the Egyptian taahlon per lined over 1,500 years ago. It had been In. practice among the Egyptians for more than three thousand years prev- lous to that time and was carried to a very high poInC of perfection. Of late years "the spoiling of the Egyptians" has been prevented by the government of that country as much as possible, and It has been constantly more and and more difficult to procure for sclen tlflc purposes specimens of the ancient Egyptian embalming art, and therefore the presentation to the scientific to- clety of this city of a very fine mummy from' Egypi, by Mrs. P. T. Barnum, was an event not to be lightly passed over. How Mrs. Barnum procured It Is not known, exactly, but through some office of the American consul at Cairo nr Alexandria, doubtless It was done. The officers of the sclentlllc, historical and medical societies, which occupy the Barnum Institute, met together Jast evening, with a few members of the press, and la their presence the mum my was unrolled and prepared for ex hibition. The outer covering or case, corres ponding to the coffin of the present day, Is of the conventional Egyptian type of 2,500 or 3,000 years ago. Its composition Is probably wood, although so old that Its grain Is largely lost. The decoration on the outside Is in brilliant colors, many of them fresh and bright as when first put on, and the paintings on It represent the soul of the dead man in Its course after fleath to the final destination. From the chin of the noble Egyptian head, which forms the top of the case, de pends a bronze beard, twisted In a fine line, denoting the sex of the occupant of the coffin. . In this case the mummy Is that of a priest of the great temple of Luxor. -Opening the coffin and un rolling the outer coverings of linen, a painted record of the man is found, also on linen, lying nearly the length of the body and about four Inches wide. This and the outer coverings were care tully preserved. The wrappings, all of linen, are well kept, many of them still strong, although yellowed by age, and not until they reach close to the body, and have become embedded In.. the gums and other preservatives used,, do they require force to remove them. The body was nearly all uncovered, a portion of the wrappigs having been Jeft to Indicate-how they were origin ally used, and the black, but well pre lerved skeleton, for that It Is practical ly, Is left bare. ... The- removal of the wrappings was done by Dr. C. C, Godfrey, assisted by Dr. T. W. Van Yorr, Mr. C. K. Averill, Jr., and others.. Dr.PoitesuncaKej;ed the head, which in the Journey across the Atlantic had become detached. The tongue and teeth were found well pre served, the latter Indicating by their iworn and polished grinding surfaces that their owner was aniold man. The arms were croSSSd upon the breast and the hands and feet are small, and slender, he height of the man not being being much above Ave feet two IncTies. As the figure lies in its glass' case in the rooms of the so ciety there Is a remarkable resem blance between the head and the photo graph of. Barneses II, which Is hang ing in the same room; , Holes in the side pf. thebody show Where the viscera were removed, and the brain was taken out -tnrough the nose. TBe' body was tften;""piiobably, boiled in bitumen, resins, gums or some other composition which shrunk the flestl upon the bones, filled the vacant spaces and insured the preservation of the remains,; There were no- ecarabael found with this mummy, nor any other things which were- sometimes buried with the bodies of Egyptians of the higher class, Specimens of the cloth wrappings were, secured by those pres ent, and they are certainly very wonder fully preserved for .textile fabrics of from two thousand to three thousand years old. The. outer case or coffin is probably of wood, although it Is so old as to make it difficult to determine that fact, but by the practice in Egypt at afcoutthe time when this mummy Is supposed to have been buried, it was customary to deposit the body, after it had been prepared, in a wooden case made from one tree, and consisting of two parts only. cover and case. This was lined in the inside with cloth and prepared by treatment to resist the natural-processes of decay.- The up per part was carved in the shape of an Egyptian face and colored, while the whole was covered with hieroglyphics appropriate to the dead. This case is one of that character and date, which Is from the eleventh to the thirteenth dynasty. A., faint aromatic odor was perceptible 'from the body, and al though the unwrapping and exposure Bf this wonderful relic of the past was not without its grewsome features, till the scientific and historical inter est which it excited overbore all other feelings. . - . . . This addition to the valuable collec tions of the scientific society will be appreciated more and more for years lo come, and Is another of the many S radical evidences which Mrs. Barnum as given of her interest in the value and success of the Institute left for the use and Improvement of the people of Brldgport br bar distinguished ; hus anL . - .'

Nantucket There Is fleet of the nimble schooners In Long Inland sound, and a half score of sue cessful sweepers make their homes In the Nutmeg state. The prospect of a heavy undertaking never disheartens them. These anchor sweepers go on long voyages, and if the quest Is with in the scene of man's power they re turn full handed. To begin with. Vineyard sound Is one of the most frequented water ways on the entire coast It Is, In general appearance, a wide river, twenty miles long. At the west end is Oay Head and the boundless ocean, and on the east the Interminable sand bars of Nantucket North lies Cape Cod, and south, that Eden, Martha's Vineyard. The sound Is midway between New York and Boston. Vineyard Haven harbor Is a noted refuge In heavy wea ther, though It Is not especially secure from the Influences of northeast winds. In this locality the anchor sweepers make their homes, and In the harbor stunch little schooners, made use of In the business, are moored. The sands of Vineyard sound are stuck fu'l of derelict anchors. These lost mudhooks bristle out at the bot tom or rest burled In the sand. An old shellback said yesterday that there Is enough unclaimed Iron between Gay Head and Cape Pogue to reconstruct a navy. Off the town of Falmouth, where the beach sweeps southwest to Nobska light, is one of the best hold ing grounds in the sound. But the anchors that persist In holding to bot tom are lost almost as frequently as those left on bottom by the parting of a cable. The currents of Vineyard Sound rush like a sluice of a sawmill and with a momentum that has the weight of a torrent. This condition prepares an annual harvest for the anchor sweep ers. Imagine a heavy northeast gale that eftme along the coast with all the fury of a cyclone. A sublime symposium of fog, spray and shrieking wind, torn billows and yeasty spray. This combi nation looks swell In type, but to sea farers It Is little more than a three days' misery. There Is constant dan ger of being blown ashore by the part ing of the cable and the strictest watch on the chain and position of the vessel is maintained. When a winter's gale Is sweeping In from the ocean the cud of bitterness is presented to many a sea dog's lips. In an easterly wind vessels bound to Boston are stormbound, so to speak, for they cannot sail cldeel to windward, and, therefore the shoals are given a wide berth till more moderate weather and a favorable slant of wind. Vessels on the way to New York and ports south rarely make a passage curing the prevalence of a stiff easterly gale, because the strength of wind and sea and condi tions of atmosphere outside , cannot readily be forecasted, So the sound fills gradually with coasters, while a storm is raging, and if spnjgone does not have to slip his an chor then it can be set down by the landsman that the wind was not very brisk. An anchor chain or cable Is laid up In sections. Ten fathoms, or sixty feet fro"in the eye of the anchor, where the cable is bent on, Is a shackle of iron, shaped somewhat like a capital U, with a bolt through the open end. The shackle replaces a link. The next shackle Is twenty fathoms, and so on, at equal distances, to the end of the cable. The idea is to have a cable that can readily be dislocated in case of trouble. To slip a cable the shackle bolt is knock ed out, and the chain runs out of the hawse pipe, while that portion on the inboard end remains in the chain pen under the forecastle deck. Sometimes the cable is buoyed and secured, later on, but it requires time and skill to do it. Vineyard Haven harbor has been the scene of terrible destruction of proper ty, One adventure is worth noticing. Some years ago a vessel from a foreign port, with a very valuable cargo for Boston, worked Into the harbor in the teeth of a gale.Her master sought an anchorage, but, owing to some unavoid able delay the anchor was dropped quite near shore. That ntght the har bor was quite luminous with spray, and the large number of coasters anchored there were laboring and sawing at their cables. This particular craft was In a bad position. She had dragged well up to the lee side of the harbor. Her cables snapped, one Immediately arter the other. The vessel was an parently at the mercy of the storm demon. The instant the iron chains broke the captain felt the quick back ward lurch of his ship. A glance at the lead lines showed an inclination of it toward the bows.. The.'.'old man," as the captain is generally called (behind his back), sprang to the wheel and threw it over, all the while as cool as a cu cumebr. It was. difficult. In the waist of the vessel. The sailors divided their danger. It was to them a case of snuffing out lives, with as little parley as the anchor cables had yielded to the crushing weight of wind and billows. The vessel slowly gathered stern way, rose and fell as the big seas hurtled under the dripping fabric. The mate had made ready to go overboard when the vessel should bring up on the1 beach. and the crew climbed the rlgjlng like rats terrified by a rising tide. But the vessel did not touch the beach. Neither did she collide with other near-by craft, Despite the gale that forced her back ward the gallant ship began to swing stern foremost in a long circle toward the head of the harbor. Slowlv. but surely, she drifted into the trough of the sea till fairly broadside on. Surf slipped passed to leeward as she backed before the blast. A bit of sail was sot up, and, strange to relate, her captain managed to judge distance and wind force so accurately that be landed his vessel against a wharf on the westward side of the harbor a half , mile from where he went adrift She landed hard, however, to the extent of. 11,000 damage to vessel ahd wharf, but .the under writers were very milch' fsatlfled to learn that $150,000 or ship and cargo 1 A l. . M h .... had been saved from almost Inevitable destruction by Yankee back-handed aea- manship, . vs;-,.'i ,r.,.r - These anchor sweepers venr'nmeh dis like to be styled wreckers,' yet wrecking In an honest manner surely, is he busi ness In which they'are engaged. Schwn era of about .twenty ton! an toaHe nm of In the sweeping feastnes, anil their1 outfit is of the simplest description. Brains and good Judgment are more requisite than costly machinery. Borne times an engine and winch are Install ed In the schooner, but heavy tackles fill the bill in ordinary work. A fish tackle Is the most powerful In use, and consists of two heavy blocks, each with four sheaves or pulleys. The up per block is made fast to a pennant, or rope, aloft, and with the other block attached to several tuns' weight. One man can develop about one halt horse power. By the accepted but unwritten law of the sea the captain who relinquishes an unbuoyed anchor on the bottom has no more claim to It after he has left the locality than have the sweepers. The schooner Is fitted with a good boat to assist her In groping about for sub merged iron, and with a crew of per haps live men the little craft sets out. When a likely spot Is reached the sweeping line Is made ready. It Is small, about the size and strength of a whale boat's tow line. In its middle two weights are bent, about ten feet apart. One end of the line Is fastened to the stern of the schooner, while the other is taken into the boat. Three men step Into the boat and row some distance away from the schooner. Then they range the boat so she will drift with the tide with the weighted sweepllne on the bottom. Schooner and boat proceed at equal speed, and the line between the weights, drags on the sand, ready to catch on any protection, be It anchor, wreck or rock. The man In the stern of the boat handles the sweep most gingerly. He is ever In readiness to pay out when 1. satchei on an obstruction. Sometimes a mile of water will be swept before the line brings up. Then comes a sudden yank, and all hands are on the qui vlve. The boat signals the schooner to stop, and the vessel Is brought Into the wind so as to lie practically motionless. The crew of the boat back on the oars, while the man In the stern slowly hauls in the sweep line, being careful not to dislodge It Foot by foot It comes Into the boat as that frail craft gradually draws near the schooner. Then one of the weibhts comes to the surface and a few seconds later the sweep, between the sinkers, is examined for traces of rust. If the line exhibits the reddish tinge the sweepers are confident that an anchor has been caught. The ut most care is exercised so as not to dis lodge the line from the fluke or stock of the anchor, for If that accident oc curs, the laborious work must be re peated. The men In the schooner have at hand a chain or heavy rope, In one end of which Is a thimble or eye. The other or free end is bent to the sweep llne and then carefully pulled down to the obstruction, under or around It. and to the surface by the boat's crew. When, this work is performed a chain occupies a position formerly held by the sweep. The free end of the chain having been passed through the eye at its other end, a sort of slip noose or running bight Is thus formed. The noose Is worked down to the anchor. and when the sweepers are reasonably sure it has fallen to the proper position, strain is brought to bear on it, and an effort is made to raise the anchor to the surface. If the anchor weighs 60,000 pounds it is a difficult matter to break, it out of the sand, but by dint of backing and filling the schooner this Is usually accomplished, and the ungainly mud hook is raised to the surface. and trot aDoara by means of purchases. " if the anchor Is in good condition it can be sold, according to the Iron mar ket, at varying prices. There are to day a hundred tons of anchors thus secured by Vineyard Haven sweepers that should bring three cents a pound, wnen a captain nas lost an anchor and must obtain another, the agents of the sweepers can generally show him a good assortment. Of course there Is more or less of a quibble as to the price, but the agent never refuses a reasona ble offer. Oftentimes many fathoms of cable are brought up by the sweepers. These chains, if old and rusty are seldom used In their former capacity, but are available as junk or ballast. Most of the schooners engaged in the business of sweeping are filled with divers' ap pliances, and when a wreck comes ashore do salvage duty. INVALIDS' FOOD. MARY 3.
