EGYPTIAN CHARACTERISTICS.—It has been remarked by an observant author that the Egyptians must have been a very curious race of people. "Their great end of life was death. They were no sooner born than they thought about dying. The whole nation seemed to live in a sort of forcing pyramid. An Egyptian did not care so much where he lodged, so long as he knew where he was to be buried. His greatest comfort was the idea of being made a nice mummy of. His card was an epitaph. He was walking about with a tombstone continually in his hand. In fact, the largeness of the Pyramids is a standing proof, if proof be wanting, what a set of tre. mendous undertakers the Egyptians were. Their present was the future. This may partly account for their being so much in advance of other nations. To speak extravagantly, they seemed to calculate time with a death-watch, which they wound up with a skeleton key. They made themselves, in fact, 10 familar with death, that they invited him to all their feasts, and put him at the head of the table at all their weddings, anniversaries, pic-nics, and grand dinners."
