LUNG -BALSAM Symbolism in Eggs. Among the curiosities recently ac quired by the department of Egyp tian and Assyrian antiquities in the British Museum is an ostrich egg pierced for suspension and covered with traces of a painted design, prob ably of a predynastic 'period. Accord ing to the experts of the department, this egg is certainly nearly six thou sand years old, as the design was made not later than B. C. 4,000. The egg of the ostrich is said to have pos sessed some religious significance even in the predynastic period.Lon don Globe. Three Ways of Dressing Hair. Some of the New Hebrides people do their hair up in a bunch on the topvof the head and stain it. yellow, while the inhabitants of Ombai island pass it all through a tube so as to make a kind of plume. The Marquesas chief's favorite method is to shave all the head except two patches, one over each temple, where lie cultivates two horns of hair. No doubt this is to render him more a thing of terror to his enemies than of admiration to his friends. His reason for shaving tho rest of the head is to allow more space for tattooing, as if all the available i skin of the body were not enough. R. H.

Mr. Greeley was U'V Some time one of the publishers of the Pioneer and lias hosts of friends i this i .city,"who will be pleased see him. Per some time past he has been publishing tho 15ig Pork Compass a hlipple posatoffice near tin- falls of tho I \\g Pork river, one of the most picturesque spots in all northern Minnesota. 'The paper oa rrTrsTvn an ^average of ihreo nages of Legal in each issue and is a money making proposition that would tempt any newspaper man in pioneer it for a number Of years at least. The paper is also widely read ami has a reputation throughout tho state that Mr. Greeley is himself unable to realize.

He enjoys living at Kipple and publishing his paper, a fact that is attested by tho circumstance that sumo of his host work has been dune in this environment. He has a well eipdpped printing office and when business at the office is dull there is no one to toll the editor that he can't go out hunting or fishing at his own free will or do anything else he wishes to.

Up to date there are no steam Laundries at Ripple ami the ladies of that vicinity have not :rq tu-T-utLUu^ur-t-of "doing up biled shirts" so Mr. Greeley has this necessary little function performed in liomidji. Speaking of the north country he said that' it is the hope of everyone in that vicinity that the railroad will build north next summer as it will mean much fh-' country. There is every as surance that it will be extended from Northorne in the spring". Many settlers are coming in at present and both Ripple and tCoochiching are towns with a "uture. Tin.' latter has one of the most magnificent water low ers in tho world when it can nn allv bo developed. An obstacle to this at present is the ques tions regarding rigLits and own erships growing out of the fact that it is an international water way and the Canadian and Amer ican capitalists, who are interest ed in its development cannot agree upon terms.
