and before England had been snatched from
tho continent by tho arms of tho sea.
Think of tho rubbish heaps of these an
clont cities being dug up and of thoro be
ing sifted out from tho debris tho story of
tho dally llfo of pcoplo 3.000 and evon G.O0O
years gono by. Think of a bundle of let
tors 3,000 years old that retold and In points
corroborated the story of Palestine when
tho patriarchs were still alive. Think of
digging from tho ruins of an ancient me
tropolis tho records of 7,000 years.
Tho Egyptians wcro a pcoplo of great
doeda, of incredlblo achievements. Their
first great structures, tho pyramids, nur.
pass in magnltudo tho works of those modem
times. Khufu's pyramid covered thirteen acioa
nnd was COO feet high. Seven hundred and
fifty square feet raoro than a soventh of
a mile. Over 94,000,000 cubic feet of mate
rial quarried out, dragged to tho Nile, floated
down tho stream, dragged up to tho desert, and
Into place. How they did It engineers are still
puzzled to know. So closely wcro these stonos
fitted together that In tho outsldo courses, which
now nro In place only at tho baso, boneath tho
eand, tho lines woro scarcely visible and must
bo outlined with charcoal to bo photographed.
Scarcely los3 wonderful wore tho temples of
tho mighty Ramses. Tho gateway at Luxor was
100 feet wide and 80 feet high, and was flanked
by obelisks 82 feet high. Heforo tho temple at
Tanls stood a 90-foot Htatue of tho king. Leading
from Luxor to Karnak was a groat avenuo nioro
than a mllo and a quarter long, 80 foot wide, and
flanked on either side tho entlro distance by
colo3Bal sphinxes. In tho great Hall of Columns
at Karnak stands 12 columns 35 feet in circum
ference and GO feet high. Flanking theso nro
122 columns 27 feet in girth nnd 40 foot high.
Crowning theso nro hundred-ton archltectraves.
Hero stood huge obelisks 98 and 125 feot high,
ono obelisk weighed a thousand tons. In ono
city wero 14 of theso hugo monoliths. More than
8,000 years ago the genius of man carved theso
cyclopean blocks from tho rock, transported thorn
for miles down strenm and across country, and
finally lifted thorn onto high walls or sot thorn
up on end, an enigma to modem englneors.

Not only nro there such outward evidences of
1-gjpt's wealth. Prom tho burlalH como tho very
objects with which tho people woro wont to sur
round themselves. Tho tombs of the kings havo
given us tho gravo of Ioua and Tloua with its
chariot, funeral slodgos, mummy cases, chairs,
beds, and jowel box all gilded and paneled; ala
baster vases, and lardor still storod with food.
Even the fenther cushions havo been preserved
theso 3,000 years.
The excavations of 190G brought to light the
wonderful Iiathor shrlno with Its stutuo of
Egypt's cow-goddess plumed and crowned with
tho lunar disc, trailing lotus blossoms from her
splondld head and with tho stars of heaven gleam
lug along her form. Beneath hor kneels tho In
fant king whom alio nourishes; beforo her stands
the dead king whom sho protects.
Tho excavating of ancient sites is a tnck that
calls for export knowledge, tho utmost skill, punc
tilious caro, and no small diplomacy. Often own
ers, moro or less real, must bo placated and
bought off. Deforo monoy is expended tho ut
most caro must bo taken to insuro a profitable
site. Trial trenches and shafts must be driven
to confirm or disprove, If possslblo, expectations.
When at last tho slto seems feasible, tho work
begins in earnest.
Tho excavations of ancient sites Is n task that
neers In tho Hold, has Just entered upon tho
work at Abydos. Following tho methods of scien
tific excavators, thoy aro settling for a long pe
riod. A conBldorablo tract of land has boon se-
cured, necessary buildings erected for tho health
of workmen and tho preservation of antiquities.
Not only nro actual remains to bo nought, but
nlso lmportnnt historical or artistic questions aro
to bo solved. Indeed, tho Egyptian Exploration
Fund was tho flrBt to employ thla method of
clearing old monuments end of showing tho world
what they woro.
Such stupendous undertakings cnll for equip
ment on a considerable Bcalo. Dy tho courtosy
of Sir Gaston Maspcro, tho government has
loaned to tho Fund a light railway with equip
ment. Work must bo rapid. Docombor 1 to
April 1 marks tho working yenr. Evory moment
Is precious. Every car load must count. Evory
shovelful of earth must bo carefully sifted wher
ever thero Is n possibility of n find. Even a bas
ket brlgado Is somotlmeH pressed Into ubo. As
soon as some apparently valunblo ploco of lo
cated, workmen nro called off, experts aro sont
In, every mnn Is on guard; carefully every Inch
of soil 1b watched as tho last fow baskets of
earth nro romoved. Every fragment muBt bo
saved and laid away until overythlng has been
recovered. Think of tho disappointment whon
a magnificent statue comes out headless, for ox
ample. Think of the conjecturos as to tho whoro
abouts of tho missing pleco nnd tho furore when,
perhaps woeks afterward, tho lost is found.
Thero is an air of hushed expectancy, a suppress
ed excitement hovering over, thnt keopB men up
under tho most tenBO strain under which tho
work is of necessity conducted.
America has Joined hands with tho old world
In prosecuting tho work. An American profes
sor, Dr. Whlttemoro, 1b now with tho stnff In tho
field. An American secretary, Mrs. Mario N.
Huckman, has boon assigned to tho direction of
tho Americnn offlcc, locnted In Tremont temple,
BoEton. Wondciful nre tho results attained.
Every student of history nnd lltoraturo, every
student of tho Blblo Is vitally concornod in tho
confirmations yearly coming to light from tho
sands of Egypt.
Thero Is need of haste. To extend tho nrablo
district of Egypt Is an economic necosslty. Ac
cordingly, tho British government has erected at
Assuan n great dam, whoso 95-foot head haB sent
tho waters of tho NIlo back over great nroas of
hitherto dry ground. Already a dozen groat tem
ples havo boon flooded, and oro long will bo for
evor lost to sight. Already beautiful Phllae, at
tho head of tho first cataract, Is gono. Tho soil
is becoming infiltrated, nnd tho stores of treas
ures, especially tho papyrus manuscripts, aro be
ing ruined oven beforo tho waters cover tho
ground abovo.
Traditions Which Have Almost the
Force of Statutes
Thoro Is a class of unwritten lnw which does
not and cannot bocomo written law, says Caso
and Comment, bocauso It approaches so noar the
danger lino that man daro not recognlzo it to tho
extent of publishing It nnd doclailng It ns a part
of tbo posltlvo law.
It is tho unwritten lnw of tho sea that a cap
tain must go down with his ship. Men daro not
write it into tho contract, and nations daro not
Incorporate it in their navy or ninrlno regulations,
yot the tyrants of tho Ben know tho law, and be
llovo thnt to obey It betters their service, and
there uro few Instances of its bolng disregarded.
It Is tho unwritten law of tho army and navy
that an officer shall not seek cover, or at least
shall not bhow npprehenslon of danger to his per
son, In time of battlo and in tho presence of en
listed men or common snllqrs. In tho Franco
Prussian war noarly four thousand officers of tho
Gorman army wero killed nnd tho great majority
of them gavo up thoir lives because they believed
In this law of conduct.
In obedlenco to this law Farragut bound him
self to tho mast, Leo rodo to tho head of his
charging column at tho bloody ungle, and Lawton
walked coolly In front of tho lino and was shot In
tho prcsenco of his men.
Tho law of tho right of revolution has been
much talked about and much written about. Evory
intelligent citizen believes that ho has tho right
under certnln conditions to opposo tho established
government of bis own land nnd Join in nn effort
to establish anothor in its plnco, Just prior to
and during tho Civil war the:o was much discus
sion In this country by learned men on either
sldo of the right of revolution nnd tho "higher
power" and tho "greater law."
Tho law Justifying ono porsnn In tho killing of
another hns required tho serious consideration of
every country. Evory criminal codo provides cor
tain punishments for homicide, and ninny of them
graduate tho punishment with minute particular
ity, according to the circumstances of tho killing,
so that any ono of six crimes may bo Involved In
a single tragedy. Such codes nlso nttompt to do
lino what killing Is JuBtlflnblo nnd what Is ex
cusablo 'and with their interpretation by tho
courts attempt to descrlbo tho only conditions un
der which ono human being c.fa kill nnother
Tho Hebrew codo almost stands alono In Its
recognition of man's desire to kill nnd his right
to hnvo that deslro and that climax of all satis
factions which comes to him who undor great
provocation slays another. It Is not at all strango
that In his branch thero should bo an extended
codo of unwritten as written law, unwritten now
nnd always to be unwritten for the reason thnt tho
recognition given by Its embodiment In tho
statutes would bo taken ns a llcenso by dishonest
men nnd would result In harm rathor than good.
It is an unwrltton law among tho officers of tho
nrmy that If a subordlnnto oillcer kills a superior
olllcor because that officer has publicly degraded
him by striking him or by other nctlnn equally
humiliating then tho court-mnrtlal will not con
vlct. During tho Civil wnr at Loulsvlllo, Ky
General Nelson said to General Davis:
"How many men havo you?"
Goncrnl DavlB ropllod, "About " giving nn np
proxlmnto number.
Nelson said, "You on army officer and soj
about!' Why don't you 'know' bow many men
you havo?" And with that ho struck Davis In the
face with hl.i glovo. Davis shot nnd klllod liliu
and tho court-martial acquitted Davis.
