malady Is determined. And he does
not think the germ will be discovered
until after extensive experimentation

expensive work that It can be carried

an onlooker as he touched "Old Jim

suggestions from the public as what to
do with the mummy. The mystery as
to its Identity arises from tho fact
thnt during the great London fl.ro In
1000, It wns hurriedly removed from
another church, and plnced where It
now lies so ns to escapo the ravages
