ctr Theory Concerning "Double" Ori
gin of the l'ractlce of Kuibulinlng.
illotllee of Stone or Wood Why Eeyp
itmia Are So Freqnently Mutilated.
The oldest form the ancient Egyptians at-
butod to the soul was that of a shadow a
"uble bora with each person, and following
m through the various stages of lif, grow
?i as he grow and declining as he declined.
iey applied this theory not only to human
j ings, but alto to god and animals, trees
ad stones. 12 very body and everything was
-ld to Lave its double, even beds, chairs and
Eiives. The component particles of these
Rubles were so minute and subtlo that or
nory people could not perceive them. Only
.'special order of priests or seers, gifted or
gained for the purpose, could identify the
buble of the gods, and ohtuin from them a
aowledgo of past and future events. The
bubles of men and inanimate objects ro-
lOlned securely bidden from sight in tho or
dinary course of life. Still, they sometimes
ft the body, endowed with color and voice,
ad went away to manifest themselves at a
Istanco, after the manner of modern ghosts.
After death tho doubles maintained not
nly the characteristics of the particular
ion they hod been associated with while in
ae flesh, but were subjected to tho common
'ants and pains of humanity to hunger
nd thirst, to heat and cold, to fatigue and
t lness with the aggravation that, whereas
, he living have ways and means of self pro
jection against the evils which befall them,
bo dead are utterly destitute. If left to Ives they were doomed to roam about
ho places they had inhabited, and feed upon
ho refuse of houses, with a certainty of per
ching after prolonging their miserable ex
istence for a short time. If properly at
!ended to if provided with food and other
necessaries they had a fair chauco to live
n and on for an indellnito injriod. They
lid not become immortal; "the splendid in
vention of immortality," as a prominent
Vmerican statesman has called it, was un
mown in primitive Egypt; but at least they
fteu had facilities for survival that were al
,'nost equivalent to immortality, as is pointed
ut by Mr. G. Maspero, in an interesting
joutribution to The Princeton Reviow, enti
tled "Egyptian Souls and Their Worlds,"
from which the facts in this article are
mainly derived. It is easy to believe that
the germ of the latter conviction of another
and everlasting life was present in this crude
notion of a double a soul apart from the
;ixdy which might contiuuo its existence,
under favorable conditions, for an unlimited
.-; Since the double was a perfect imago of
the being to which it had been linked at
birth, it was natural that it should remain
near where the corpse was buried, and par
ticipate in its destinies. Having grown with
'the body, it ought logically to decay with tho
,body, and. thus there was reason to believe
i that the natural term of its existence after
; the body's death might be measured by the
,wime required for tho human frame to disin
tegrate completely. Therefore, the Egyptian
; savants decided the best means of arresting
i tho decomposition of the soul was to stop
; the decomposition of the llesh, and to this,
Ur. Maspero suggests, we probably owe tho
practice of embalming. The drying up and
hardening of the mummy enabled it to last
' for centuries, and to serve as a kind of stay
for its double.
; But this expedient was not wholly satis-
factory, since even the best of mummies
I could not endure forever and then what
i would become of the double? Tho only way
5 they found out of this difficulty was to pro-
vide stone or wooden bodies against the pos-
; sibihty of the mummy moldering away.
Most of tho statues discovered in Egyptian
I tombs, Mr. Maspero assures us, wero only
i. bodies for the doubles of tho men buried in
. them. To prevent them from being broken
to pieces or carried away, they walled them
.' up in dark cells some standing, some sitting,
i some squatting, according to taste or con
vemence; ana ail were as like the model as
art could make them, that the soul niijrht
more easily adapt itself to them.
There was no limit to the number of such
effigies but the piety or wealth of the surviv
ing relatives; tho more numerous they were
the better it was for the dead. One statue
was, after all, only one chance of perpetuity.
and 2, 3, 10 or 20 statues gave the double so
many chances more. The statues in the ten
pies had the same meaning as those in the
-tcrabs; the doubles of kings or gods not the
whole, but certain particles were fixed upon
them by prayera and consecration, and ani
mated them. Thus it was that they were able
to move head or arms, to answer questions,
and to give forth oracles. Statues wero nos
mere works of art. they were things aliv,
and are even to this day, Mr. Maspero de
clares, only the double of old has turned into
a bad spirit in modern Egypt, and haunts
the spot where it was revered ages ago as a
saintly soul or god. It is wont to frighten
men out of their wits, to drive them raving
mad, and sometimes to kill them. But it
loses its power when the body of stone with
which it consorts has been mutilated. That
is the reason, Mr. Maspero informs us, why
bo many statues in our museums display a
broken nose or a battered cheek ; the fella
been who found them defaced them in order
to lame the double in them and prevent it
from doing any harm. The tomb was thi
house of the double, and there on certain
days the family brought provisions of al.
kinds a custom which ultimately took the
form of offerings that were mere painted or
carved imitations of natural meat and drink.

An ArtUtlo Woman's Shrewdness.
A well known New York real estate man
has a mother who has made a fortune by her
own shrewdness. Yet every one who has
contributed to her accumulations thinks her
a public benefactor. It is a well known fact
that people who accumulate riches in New
York desire nothing more ardently than a
beautiful and artistically furnished home.
Mrs. discovered this, and, having very
artistic tastes, set to work investing in houses
in the fashionable uptown thoroughfares.
Then sho went abroad and picked up inter
esting bric-a-brac and works of art, anil
when she had completed her purchases she
returned, furnished the houses from cellar to
garret, and advertised them for sale.
Her excellent taste soon brought custom
ers, and in a very little whilo she disposed of
many buildings, with their furniture and
all, at a very comfortable profit. Iler fort
une, made in this way, is estimated at be
tween $250,000 and $300,000, and the pur
chasers of her property are happy because
their friends visit them and congratulate
them on the excellent and artistic way in
which they have furnished their residences.
The visitors are never informed that the
houses were bought furnished. New York

How to Make m Tent.
Buy nine yards of good, etout, yard
wide cottoru cloth and cut into three
strips of throe yards each. Sew these
utrips together securely by overlapping,
and you will then have a Btrip three
yards square. Make a solution of twelve
ounces of limo and five ounces of alum
in three gallons of water, and eoak the
cotton in it for a day. Rinse it in warm
rain water and stretch it in the sun to
dry. It will then lo waterproof.
Having reached your camping out
place, cut two iolea eight feet long, each
with a fork at one end. Sink tho other
ends in the ground about a foot and beat
the earth well to keep them lirmly in
place. Tlieso poles should be about eight
feet apart. Now cut another polo about
nine feet long and put it on the top of
tho other two, resting in the forks. Cut
two more poles ten feet long for the sides
of your frame, resting one end of each
jxtle on the cross j)olo and the other end
on the ground. Stretch the canvas over
the frame and tack it to the poles. You
can make the sides of your tent weather
proof with the boughs of cedar and other
This is the simplest and least expensive
tent you can have, and it will answer
your purposes fully. The interior of the
tent, however, would bo a little more
roomy and comfortable if you would put
up a 6econd frame in the rear, similar to
that in front, say two feet high, and
btretch tho canvas over tliat and thence
to tho ground.
Select sloping ground to put your tent
on, so that if it rains the water Avill read
ily run off; and also dig a little ditch
around the tent, with an outlet running
down the incline. As the front of the
tent will bo open unless you choose to
provide enough canvas to close it you
had better place it with tho front toward
the north or northwest, for stomi3, if
you have any, will probably come from
the south or southwest.
Tho rude hut described, for it is little
else, will no doubt seem a flimsy shelter
to those who have never occupied one,
but for perfect rest and the soundest of
sound sleeping, you will find it superior
to the best room in your city Louse.

Writers and the "Syndicates."
The method of presenting literary mat
ter through a ' 'syndicate" may liave its
advantage, but I think it shuts off in a
sense, a great many writers who might
otherwise gradually gain recognition. If
a syndicate were managed right, it could
pay better prices for literary matter than
any one else ; the projectors of such an
enterprise could afford to pay certain
authors enormous sums but, at tho same
time, such a scheme would work like
having no copyright law; it would
enable one class of authors to sit down on
tho others and keep them out.
A popular journal which had the nerve
and enterprise to secure good authors ex
clusively and pay them for their work
would put itself ahead of competitors.
The trouble with the "syndicate" is that
it tends to reduce journals to a dead
level. Robert Bonner, of The New York
Ledger, tried the former method; he
paid certain authors good prices to write
exclusively for him, and found that the
undertaking paid him. So, in the pres
ent day, an enterprising editor who is on
the alert can find young American
writers of promise and bring them out,
thus not only starting them on successful
careers, but greatly benefiting his own
journal. E. P. Roe in The Epoch.
How a Queen Was Shocked.
M. Julien Brault has just published a
volume giving a history of the telephone
since its continental adoption. Ila tells
an amusing story of its debut in Brussels
in 1884. The queen was asked to listen
from her palace to a representation at the
Monnale theatre. Suddenly, to the sur
prise of all present, she dropped tho in--trument,
giving a little gasp of dismay.
The chorus leader had just been giving
his tumultous crowd a sudden reprimand
i;i the most unparliamentary language,
using the name of Divine providence in
a very free and easy manner. Strict
orders were given on the morrow to oblige
the use of more diplomatic speech, and
the queen was happy.
Brault states that Spain has made no
progress at all in the use of tho telephone.
In 1882 the government began to feel
some interest in the matter, and a law
M as voted allowing its use in the princi
pal cities. Even Russia preceded Spain,
lor in 1881 the instrument was there used
quite commonly, and even at greater
distances than in France. Now, in
France, in towns boasting of a population
of 18,000 inhabitants the telephone is
completely unknown. Luxemburg gives
the cheapest rates for yearly subscriptions,
and Russia the dearest. Globe-Democrat.
Relics of the Old Stone Age.
The Smithsonian institution has 6ent
out an earnest request that all persons
interested in science shall co-operate,
with the aim of determining if in
America there existed an old stone of
paleolithic age. To that end it has re
quested that implements supposably be
longing to that age, be sent to tho insti
tution at "Washington for examination.
I-Iany supposed to be such have already
leen sent in; and most of them pi'ove to
be of a very different origin. None
truly paleolithic have been found in the
mounds. Meanwhile, a cute Pennsyl
vania individual has put on the market
a quantitv of spurious, out well made,
aiTow heads. He takes the more modern
chipped flints, which are abundant, and
rechips them into curious and antique
forms to make them salable. He has
driven a fine business. Genuine Yankees
are now quite behind the age. Globe
Democrat. Transportation of Dead Bodies.
The baggage agents throughout the
country have held a conference for the
purpose of adopting rules in connection
with the transportation of dead bodies
over their several roads, lhey propose
consulting the state boards of health
throughout the country and make it ob
ligatory that in cases of diphtheria, scar
let and typhoid fever, erysipelas, measles
and other contagious and infectious dis
eases, bodies must be wrapped in a sneec
saturated with a solution of chloride of
zinc, or of bi-chloride of mercury, and
encased in air tight coffins, and tho body
must not be accompanied by those who
have .been exposed to the infection.

Laired man reclined gracefully in his easy
chair, passed his white and manicured hand
in a contemplative manner over his massive
brow, and repeated: "es, sir, I devote my.

difficult to make people believe that I uu

"liriefly, I devote my life and mind to
practicing the arts that are beautiful. Every.
thing concerning beauty is to me of absorb
ing importance. The development of the

hatchet faced woman comes to see me with
her hair parted in tbe middle and drawn
back on either side from her forehead. Her
face is too long, too thin and too sharp.
There is a straight line that ruDS directly
through the part in her hair down between
her eyes ami over her nose and to her chin.
In glancing at her the first impression one
receives is that of great length and narrow
"To make this woman beautiful I first take
down her hair and part it on one side. Then
I dress it down over her temples and puff it
out above the ears, bringing it down a bit
toward her cheeks. Then I take some red
and work it in heavily on her cheek bones.
After this the eyebrows are darkened a little
at the ends farthest from tho nose. This al
ways increases the impression of width. The
same is done to tfie eyelashes, making the
eyes appear broail&r than they are. This
simple work changes the entire appearance
of the woman. You cannot imagine what a
difference it makes. Instead of the eyes
catching a straight line that runs down over
her head into the chin, it is caught by the
hair, which is parted on the side, and follows
an imaginary line running in sympathy with
this part diagonally across the face."

face than a narrow one. I make a theory for
every woman I see, and carry it out in her
individual case. But in general I may say.
if she is a blonde, the eyebrows should be
darkened near the nose and allowed to re
main light and indistinct at the ends. Then
some red should be put in front instead of at

banged, should be arranged in ringlets, so

what its weight may be, more than enough
for one healthy person. This fact is pro

keeping cool is as simple now as it was in tho
days of long ago. The rind should le slit
with a short bladed knife, so that when the
melon is divided the heart of it shall rest in
one of the halves in one luscious, juicy lump.
The knife should then be carefully wiped and
then put in the pocket. Then the coat should

Action While Utterly Unconscious.
Students of mental phenomena will find
something of interest to tlem in tbe case of
the Bloomington street car driver who made
a heroic fight to keep his cash box out of the
bauds of thieves tho other night. He was
terribly beaten and cut about the head, and.
though knocked senseless, managed to keep
tho box out of tho hands of tho highwaymen.
Then, so strong was the power of habit, he,
fhpugh utterly unconscious of what he was
doing, completed his run and took his horses
to tho stable, holding tightly to the cash box
tho while. A strango feature of the cose was
that when he reached the office, to which he
seemed to have gone purely mechanically,
he refused to give up the box, making as des
perate fight against; the cashier as he had
made against the thieves. History abounds
with cases of unconscious performance of
routine duties, but this case adds to those
testimony which seems to prove that what

A leading chemist of New York
says: "No plasters of such merit as
the A th-lo-pWros Plasters haveuver
before been produced." They uro
a novelty because they arc not made

can produce, and will do what
rlaimed for them. For upraiiiH,
aches, weakness, lameness, etc.,
they are unequaled.
