The quest for things antique has led
to systematic forgery and imitation on
Ihe part of dealers. Paris is the great
center of this deceitful industry, says
the Nation. There has been discov

for the fabrication of Egyptian mum

to Egypt, and in due time return as
properly antiquated discoveries.
A funny story is now current about
a collector of medieval things. A cer

the order of a dealer in medieval an

the fifteenth century, and received for
his work some 2,000 or 3,000 francs.
The dealer shipped the chimneypiece
i iu » , auu uau u oci up iu a jmiaic
near Venice, bringing back to Paris
photographs of the palace and of the
chimneypiece in situ. By means of
Ihese photagraphs he aroused the in
j terest of a rich collector, who sent his
j secretary to Venice to make sure
j that the photographs did not lie, and
1 on his favorable report, bought the
j thing for 50,000 francs. On the arrival
of the article at his house in Paris he
sent for some workmen to open the
cases. One of them appeared to go
about the work rather carelessly, and
he remonstrated with the man, who
answered: “Have no fear, sir. I know
just how it needs to be opened, for I
packed it when it left Paris.”
