""to make mummies. I
A New York Association to Go
Into That Business.
The Object la to Preierve the Entire
Population for Future Reference
A Simple and Thoroish
To a great many people the most hor
rible thing about death is the idea of
decomposition in the dark gloom Of the
grave. The thought of the finish of a
human career is not a delicate one in
any of its aspects. But now, comes the
Sanitary Mausoleum association, and
offers for the paltry sum of $70 to pre
serve your physical being for all time,
and give you a home in a marble buildr
ing where you may be on view for your
friends and relatives as long as any of
them are left to look.
If you are a millionaire, you may ar
range it so that your grateful heirs may
see you after death. If you are a pub
lic benefactor there is no need to perpet
uate you in carven image of stone. You
may have a resting place on the edge of
the town where all who come may see
what manner of man you were. It may
even come about that in after years
your tangible person will be an exhibit
in an art museum. Time may make
anything of you, but it cannot change.
That is what the newly-organized as
In other words, the association of
fers to New York citizens an oppor
tunity to imitate, the enduring Pha
roahs and become mummies.
There is nothing about the proposed
process to offend the most refined mind.
It has an advantage over the lost Egyp
tian art in that the Egyptian dead were
wrapped from head to foot in grass
cloths, and in many cases the human
form looked like a bale of cloth, not even
the features being visible. The Amer
ican mummy will be created without re
moving the burial clothes from the
body, and except for the discoloration
of the face, the mummy will look just
as did the subject when arrayed for the
Curiously enough, an American cli
matic condition suggested the process.
Out west there are torrid deserts over
which sweep hot, dry winds. Men die in
these deserts, and months after death
the body lying exposed upon the sands
-will remain almost perfect, decomposi
tion Toeing delayed by the preserving
-quality of the dry air. Cattle die on the
trails from thirst and lie in the sun
through countless weeks before there
is any appearance of decay. -
The medical student murderer, Theo
dore Durrant, of San Francisco, knew
.something of the value of dry air as a
preservative. When he killed his first
victim, Blanch Lamont, in a church, he
carried the body high U(p into the
belfry. The belfry windows were slats
like those of an ordinary window blind,
and the wind swept through almost un
impeded. Durrant stripped the body
and composed it carefully on the Itoor
and left it there. Two weeks later,
when it was found, there were small
evidences of decay.
The new association will mummify
by the dry-air process. It is simplicity
itself. The mausoleum is the first
thing to be built. The plans for it are
drawn. It is an immense building cap
able of giving room to 15,000 bodies. It
is to be conctructed in the form of a
cross. When the funeral services are
over the body is taken directly to the
mausoleum and placed in an individual
vault. There is ncdisturbanee of the
A small hole is bored in the head of
the coffin, and a Similar one in the foot.
At the head is inserted a rubber tube.
This tube connects with a fan ma
chine. The machine is set going, and
creates a folast of air, which is blown
over an open vat of sulphuric acid.
The chemical action of the acid upon
the air is to remove all moisture from
it, and the uir is conveyed perfectly dry
into the tube and through the tube to
the interior of the coffin,
i The tube at the foot is 'to carry the
air off. After leaving the coffin the air
passes throught a hot furnace and re
turns to the world through a tall chim
ney. The object' of the furnace is to
kill any infectious germs which the
air might have caug-ht up in passing
through the coffin.
FOr 30 days the human body lies in
a breeze; then the fun stops, the tubes
are removed; the cofnn is sealed, and
there you are, and there you will stay
as long as time lasts. Each coffin is
assigned to a vault that is sealed or not
as the relatives wish. You may have a
vault with glass doors, so that if you de
tire it you may be pa view to solicitous
friends. That is entirely a matter of
The cost for an ordinary vault w'th
the air process will not be more than
$70. There will be richer vaults for
richer occupants, but the rich man gets
do more mummy than the poor one.

French blouse to show a g-nimpe of ac

at the neck with applied g-uipure.' Bows
of ribbon on the shoulders have re

are made with many loops and look
like a rosette. Another innovation is
trimmed sashes. Ribbon or , muslin,
they tie at the Back in a small bow, and
the ends fall to the hem of the gown.
Kach side is trimmed with narrow lace
ruffles, or fine plaitingfs of Swiss or

A few weeks ago one the most extra-"
onlinarv fish ever known came to light
in rVvmiHhire. It was a chub found in
a muddy pool, a:id certainly it was as
hMeou? a thing as one could imagine.
It was imprisoned in - a sorf' of rage
formed of the roots of an elm tree which
prrij-cted under the water, and it had
evidently wormed its way into the pris
on when (juite small. Being unable to
find its vy out, it wns forced to row
in th shape of the cage, instead .f the
natural form that all chubs should tke.
With no loom to develop this fish"-'
tail had disappeared altogether, save for
a little deformed stump that had'wedcd
its way between the roots -of the tree.
The back fin had also vanished fur there
was no room for it to grow in. The
whole body of the liK-kless chub was
distorted and it had grown into the
gnarled and twisted- form of the root
cage. The scales were" encrusted wilh
mud and arranged in layers like roof
slates. It is a puzzle to inunngine how
the fish fed and liyed timing its growing
years in that watery prision, and what
it done w hen times were hard and no
food came by. It seemed contented
enough and was certainly healthy and
sirosjin spite of its distorted shape.

How NatlonM Have Encroached I'pon

The annals of commerce" are not en
tirely without a spice of "romance.
There is a little retributive justice that
savors of the novelist's art- in the way
the spoiler is sometimes spoiled in busi
ness relations. In an article entitled
"Made in Japan," 'the Pull Mall Gazette
shows how nations have encroached
upon one another's business, . and
reaped for a time a rich harvest, only
to see the same tactics employed' by a
rival people, and be forced' to stand
aside while the trade slipped, from their
hands into the keeping of another na
In, old times the Dutch, by importing
English clay, made a good profit 'out of
imitations of Chinese porcelain, and
presently the Dutch product became es
tablished in the markets of the world
as Delft ware.
But the Dutchman was no more se
cure in his profitable trade than had
been his predecessor,' the Chinaman.
The English potters took to copying-the
Dutch patterns, and sold their pottery
much cheaper, and the north of Eng
land became headquarters for the Delft
Again,' however, the spoiler has been
spoiled. Of late the Japanese have made
themselves masters of the art of repro
ducing the patterns best Hked in Eng--landi,
and have begum to encroach on the
domain long monopolized by the Eng
lish potter. The Japanese product is
finer and stronger, and above all cheap
er than the best English ware, and
Japan is providing the markets with,
goods which were originally a Chines
Cooked by- Cold.
Anyone who has ever picked up with
a bare hand a piece of intensely-. cold
iron knows that the touch burns al
most as badly as if the metal were red
hot. Indeed, the action of great heat
and extreme cold are so similar that a
Hungarian chemist has turned the lat
ter to account to prepare meats for
food. He subjects the meat to 60 de
grees of frost, and then seals it up in
air-tight tin cans. The result is that
the meat, which is practically "cooked
by cold," will keep any time, and can
be eaten with very little further prep
aration. Cincinnati Enquirer. . - -.
