Can the spirit of the dead return and answer ye? or no to the questions of the faithful? Soma people in London believe these things are pos sible, and they have the mummy right in the British museum to prove it. A writer in the London Mail tells nil about it: "This Kt range sibyl is the mummy of Kate-bet. a priestess in the temple Amen-I'a at Thebes'. It lie? on the top shelf of case I in the first Kgyptian room. It is one of the most completeand interesting speci mens. The painted eartoonage head, with its gilded face, is inclined to one side, giving a look of life On the breast is a hawk headed orna ment containing a scarab, the sacred beetle. On the wooden models of the hands are rings made of carne lian and precious stones, and an at tempt had leen made to imitate bracelets by painting. The system of swathing is unusual. "In wall case No. 10 stands Kate bet's painted wooden coffin. It again is singular. On the foot the feet and sandals of the deceased are painted in an unusual manner, and the face is evidently intended for a likeness. The Ijidy Katehet died in Thebes 2,?00 vears ago.
