Lewis.] When the firm of Haywood, Stone & Co. of Loudon established an agency at Cairo, Egypt. I was placed In charge. My business vras the buying of rugs, vases, arms, cloths and whatever else might flnd_.sale In England. That was what I may call my general and legit imate business. As a side line I was to pick up bargains In mummies. Up to the founding of that agency In Cairo only n few museums In Europe or America had been able to secure speci mens. To get hold of a mummy with a history required n couple of years' diplomatic correspondence between governments, and the cost would run up as high as JSO.OOO. Under the laws of Egypt it was death to disturb the dead without dfflcial permission, and denth to nny foreigner discovered try ing to ship u mummy out of the coun try without special license. In Justice to the old and respectable house I have named I must say that they had no knowledge of my side line. I had a partner in London who advanced the money nnd shared the protlts. When I was ready to begin business, we had orders for :J0 mummies. Let me tell you that I had a crafty part to play. In n way the branch was under the supervision of the Egyptian government. At the end of each week I lia-.l to submit n list of my purchases. All iuy shipments had to pass the customs oillclnls. My ware rooms must always be open to official Inspection. I was not told In so many words that all this watchfulness was to prevent me from dealing In mum mies. but of course 1 knew that it was. My first step was to bribe every official who could obstruct me. and 1 had to move slowly In the matter and make no mistakes. Then an agent must be found to look up and ship me the specimens from points In the Interior, and he had to be a nervy ns well as an honest man. lie In turn would have to And faithful men, and taken all in nil It was a bit of business to be handled with care. It was six months before I got It under way. and after once fairly In It there was not an hour In which I felt safe from discovery. In most cases the burial places In Egypt are easily to be got at. Most of onr orders simply called for a speci men, and It made no difference about the sex or whether there was a record attached. There were a few museums In want of particular bodies. They wanted kings, queens, generals or poets who had been dead from 3.000 to 5.000 years. It Is perhaps unneces sary to Inform the reader that 1 always filled these orders. After getting a mummy Into my warehouse I had a. way of making It fill the bill and give general satisfaction. My assistant, who was a native antiquary, a native doctor nnd n villain, was handy nt un wrapping and rewrapplng and carving hieroglyphics nnd manufacturing rel ics. If there was fraud In It. I do not seek to defend myself. I simply say that If there is a public demand for the mummy of I'liaraoh It Is the duty of some agent to supply It as near a3 possible and keep people good natured. In the course of two years I shipped 5G mummies safely out of Cairo nnd landed tlicm in London, nncl I ara frank to say tlint my dividends were considerably larger tlinn those pnld last year by the Standard Oil compa ny or the Carnegie Iron works. The mummy business was booming, and I was tilling orders for anything up to 10.000 years old oil demand when a government olllclal gave me a hint that my business had been tumbled to. lie exchanged his information for my ?20 goldplece and went his way. and It was my business to put up a job on the kliedive and square myself. I don't know that any one had given me away directly, but suspicion had somehow become nroused, apd I was to be put under surveillance and caught red handed. My shipments suddenly ceas ed. and the mummy market became Cull. After a couple of weeks my as sistant villalu went up the Nile toward the ruins of Memphis to look for a man. It was a live man and a particu lar sort of man he wanted, and when he found him the sum of $30 changed hands. Then the'man died. At least he was swathed In bandages which had come from the looms 2.000 years before, scented and spiced In A1 style aud then put In a coffin which gave him away as having been dead al most 20 centuries. The hieroglyphics on that coflln and on a manuscript In closed revealed the fact that the dead man was the celebrated fakir Sonadi Hassassan and that when he had slept his sleep he would awaken and begin another pilgrimage on earth. Tlie mummy reached my warehouse one afternoon, and within an hour a government official backed by a file of soldiers had arrived to make a search. , There had been no conceal ment. The mummy occupied a con spicuous position. They had caught me red handed In a way. and yet they could not understand why I bad been so open about It. "My dear sir," I said to the official, "I know the laws of Egypt. I am not dealing iu mummies. The law docs not say 1 may uot restore a dead man to life. At this present hour that thing there is a mummy. Tonight at 9 o'clock It will be a living man." "What nonsense Is this?" exclaimed the man as he struck the coffin with his cane. "Do you think I am a child to believe such talcs?" "I think you are a very smart man," I replied, "but there Is yet something to learn. Read of Sonadi Ilassassan. He was the greatest magician the world ever knew, lie It was who made the Nile flow backward for a day. When he had lived for 1.000 years, he became weary for the want of sleep. He fell into a trance which vu not to be broken for 2.000 years. The time Is up at 0 o'clock tonight." "And he will come back to life?" queried the man, with an Incredulous smile. "He will. You and your friends will be here to see. I had read of him, and I was anxious to got his body. 1 paid a large price for It that I may see It re stored to life with my own eyes." The Egyptian's natural superstition and my earnestness staggered the man, and when I saw It 1 clinched the mat ter by saying: "It Is only a few hours to wait. You shall dine with me at S o'clock. At 0 my assistant shall unwrap Ilassassan and bring lilm to life. Eet two of your soldiers watch the coffin meanwhile. If things don't turn out as I say. you shall carry me oft prisoner and have J1W In gold as a present." "So be It." ho said after a long look at me, "but do not attempt to trick me. I am no fool." Two soldiers were left to watch the cotHn, and in my hearing he warned them that any remissness on their part would be followed by swift punish ment. Sly living rooms were over the warerooms. When tlie dinner hour ar rived, 1 had the official and two of his friends to sit down with me. All three of the men had made up their minds that I was playing a game of bluff, and they had a curiosity to know how I was going to carry it through. Fifty dollars would have bribed any of them to shut his eyes for a year, but in this case they had received their orders di rect from the minister and dared not trifle with him. They drank sparingly of the wine that they might keep their heads clear, but grew sufficiently good natured to hope that I might get out of the trouble without serious loss. "There will be no trouble," I replied, with calm assurance. "Konadl Ilassas san has had his sleep and will return to life, and the government will prob ably reward me for restoring such n celebrated man to earth. Come, gen tlemen. It Is time." The soldiers had been sitting before the coffin for hours. My assistant was on hand and ready, and we lost no time In getting to work. The coffin was tilted up on end. the body lifted forward so that It could be got at. and the wraps were soon removed. I knew that the mummy was a live mnn, but never had 1 looked upon the face of a subject showing death and the passage of time more plainly. The face would have deceived the wisest professor In Europe. There were the sunken eyes and cheeks, the loss of teeth and?the seal brown color, and I found myself wondering If some mistake hadn't been made. The official and his friend quiet ly chuckled as the business proceeded, and my assistant villain was the only one who was perfectly placid. He did not hurry his work. Ho was a full half hour getting down to the last wrapping, which was a sort of union garment made for the occasion. Then he stepped back with a flourish, picked up a stick and, striking three blows on the coffin, he called out: "It Is time. Sonadi IInsKji?Rnn- it In time!" The chest of the mummy began to heave and ltn eyes to flutter. Then came a long breath and Its eyes unclos ed. The soldiers bolted from the ware house In affright, and the three men re treated several paces In consternation. Very slowly and without a false mo tion the mummy gasped and stretched and looked about. A hand went up to rub sleep from Its eyes. Then It moved uneasily and presently stepped from the cotlin. straightened up and passed out of the door Into the night with slow nnd dignified steps.
