More than a hundred South American
mummies, carefully wrapped In straw
and sewed up In heavy canvas bags, are
now stored In warehouse "A" at th3
world's fair grounds. This distinct ad
dition to the foreign colony now located
at the park was made Jast week. The
mummies came in unobserved and were
removed from a red freight car without
attracting so much as a passing notice.
They ere piled up in long rows in tho
warehouse, and will remain there several
weeks, at the end of which time they
will be taken from their straw and can
vas wrappings and removed to the an
thropological building, as Professor Put
nam calls It. Profeflsor Putnam Is chief
.ha HaruirmtMit of ethnology and arch
aeology at the fair. For several yean-
past he and a number of assistants have
been ransacking the earth for Just such
things as came In the other lny in tin
red freight car. The platoon of mummlee
hat arrived last week Is only the advance
guard. Many more are coming. The lat?
arrivals will hall from tho regions of the
in toiler nnd nerhaDB from several
Rn.ith American countries that abound
In mummies and Insurrections.
rLu.c i rinrncv. a. young man rc
cently graduated from Harvard univers
ity, unearthed all tne mummies nw
rk Mr. Dorsey Is an assistant
to I'rofesor Putnam. He fills the chair
of ethnology and archaeology at Harvard,
besides attending to a corresponding de
partment at the fair. When I was de
elded to send out young men to get thing
for the fair, Professor Putnam put Mr.
Dorsey in charge of the Peruvian expe
dltlon. Tuesday Mr. Dorsey told an In
terestlng story of his quest for mummies,
Wa selected Peru." he ' began, "bo.
xmiao mummies abound there. Along the
Purinn coast, between the Andes and the
ocean, a barren desert stretches the full
length of the country. The sand Is highly
charged with saltpetre, and this preserve:

Mummy hunting is quite a fad amon.

They go out and dig open a grave or two

Ttnm or Pere la Chaise In Paris. I havi
. never heard of American tourists carry
in if bwilv mummies. They seem to d
satisfied with digging them out of tlr
wound and perhaps taking away som
of the trinkets found in the graves.
"The first to do in hunting mummies Ik
to get in a section of the country when
they abound. Any of the natives can tell
you that, although It Is scarcely neces
wiry to consult thern, for the old town or
Ancon is known to be the best field. AC
ter you pick the field you Intend to work
all that ts needed Is a long Iron or steel
rod, much like the ramrod of a musket.
This you press Into tho sand, and If it
strikes any obstruction you know you
havo found a grave and one or more
- mummies. I went out every day for slx

180 araves, getting more than 200 bodies.
Of these, a number were so thoroughly

moved from the graves. I brought back

"Tho natives of that country bury their
dead in a peculiar manner," Mr. Dorsey
continued, "The hand of the dead per
Bon were spread over the face and the
arms pressed against the chest. Then the
knee were drawn up until they almost
touched the elbows. The body was then
prepared for burial. Usually It was
wrapped In a peculiar cloth made of fiber,
with leaves or other vegetable growth
stuffed in to nmko a compact package;

gentlemen have very creditable collec

The fancy for parting the hair, which
for a time was entirely discarded, has
been struggling to the front again, which

of the treasure, which they so cheaply
and strangely picked up. "Several days
ago I was lounging In a store on Pacific
avenue," said a gentleman, who was the
possessor of one of the pipes, "when a
seedlly dressed man came in tno store
holding In his hand tills pipe. He came
direct to me and asked me if I could di
rect him to a pawnbroker, stating that he
wanted, to obtain a temporary loan on
the lonly valuable j piece of perjsonul
nrnnortv the hard times had left him.
As he held up, this rare and costly pipe
the tears came into his eyes at the
wMrv thnliu-ht nf hnvlnir tn nnrt with the
only thing left to him from better days.
"1 felt sorry for the poor devil so 1
told him it he put it In the pawnshop It
wmlltt aurelv he lnat. na if he rniilii not
redeem It the broker would confiscate It
nt the end of thirty days. I agreed to
limit him 17 with thA iinilprntnnrllnir that
If he did not redeem it in three months
it was to be mine. He told me, ana-1
do not doubt his word,' as he had such
an honest look, that the date the pipe
bore, 1813. is the correct date -when his
grandfather got the pipe in the old coun
try from a friend who was working In
the factory where it was made, and that
It had been In the family ever since.
There is a very pathetic history con
nected with this pipe but I have forgot
ten the details so I won't say anything
about it, While I don't wish the poor
felllow any hard luck, yet I hope he won't
be able to redeem it. How much do 1
think a pipe like this worth T I should
suv about 110: thouirh I am doubtful if
you could duplicate it at any price, for
the factory in which tneso pipes were
made has long since been destroyed."
The pipe which the gentleman referred
to was shown to tils friend, and was a
largo meerchaum, or what purported to
he a meArarhanm nine. The bowl, which
Is heavily carved, la colored as though
it had been smoxea ror scores or years,
and Is about 44 Inches deep and about

coma. In every case the same story and
history haa gone like a trademark with
each and every pipe, and the strangest
thing Is that no one owner seems to sus
pect the genuineness of his pipe. These
pipes have been bought at prices ranging
from )S to J15; the range of price being
limited only by the appearance of the
iuyr. If he looked as though he could
stand It the man with the pipe for sale
would strike for 15; If he looked as
though he could not stand so much then
he was touched lighter.
The gentlemen who own these pipes
occupy almost every position In social
and business life. Senators, state and
county officials! doctors and lawyers
and even gentlemen of the cloth, point
with pride to the "pipe with a history."
At a rough estimate the pipes are- worth
about tl.50 each, as they can be bought
