The Raymer Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 19, 1923, Raymer, ColoradoWhat killed Carnarvon Tut ankh amen s curse by John Dickinson Bherman of Fortis Doft the footsteps of him who disturbs the sleep of pharaoh. Ancient egyptian superstition. A bit j Ord Carnarvon is dead. Lord Carnarvon uncovered the Tomb of Tut ankh amen i pharaoh of Egypt 8,273 years ago. What killed lord Carnar von was it the curse of Tut ankh amen on him who should disturb his sleep Egypt very generally believes in a curse of the pharaohs that wreaks dire vengeance upon those who disturb their last sleep. 80 All Egypt la now saying what corresponds to the Amer ican. I told you and All Egypt does not hesitate to speculate in Public whether this vengeance will be Satis fied by the death of lord Carnarvon or will be wreaked upon others. Modern medical science says that lord Carnarvon died of pneumonia following blood poisoning caused by the bite of an insect during the excavation of Tut ankh amen s Tomb. And noted phys Daus summoned to Cairo did All that Modem medical science knows to save his life. Respiration was artificially maintained As Long As possible and his heart action was stimulated. But Modem medical science could not save him. Tut ankh amen pharaoh of Egypt 1358-50 b. A master of the ancient world caused his Royal Tomb to be Cut into the living Rock of the Cliff of the Valley of the Kings near Luxor. He caused Chambers to be filled with Golden jewel studded funerary Furni Ture with preserved food with his personal apparel and ornaments with his portrait Mannikin for the trying on of clothing with everything necessary for the use of his Mummy when it should be Laid away in the Royal sarcophagus. After Only eight years of role he died. The sacred College of embalmers was Busy Over his Mummy for 70 Days. His Mummy was placed in the sarcophagus which stood in a separate chamber elaborately Deco rated and inscribed. About the sarcophagus were built Case after Case magnificently decorated until the chamber would bold no More. The connections Between the several Cham Bers were then walled up and sealed. The passage to the Chambers was filled. A Wall was built across its outer end and sealed. The stairway of Twenty Steps in the living Rock to the outer world was filled. A Wall was built at the top step and sealed Wall was covered with desert and hidden from the Eye of Man. The Mummy of Tut ankh amen it Ladin of Egypt was left to lie in peace and safety through the Ages until the Shade of Tut ankh amen should return to assume mortal shape for the remainder of Hla Long journey through the next world to the final state of Bliss. George Edward Stanhope Molyneux Herbert fifth Earl of Carnarvon a Nobleman of the British Empire a. D. 1928, caused that hidden and sealed outer Entrance to be broken through. He excavated the stairway. He entered through the second sealed wait he forced hts Way through the pass age and into the outer chamber. He stopped not at the sealed Wall of masonry into the chamber containing the Royal cat Falque. He Laid alien hands on that cat Falque he even opened the doors of the outer Case and then he stopped because of reverence for the dead pharaoh 7 not at All. He stopped because he could not get farther into the cat Falque without destroying it. To take the cat Falque carefully apart it would be necessary to demolish a Wall of the chamber. And that Wall was covered with dec orations and hieroglyphs which must be photographed and studied. All of which would take much time and there would be cooler weather for the work in the Falli the Ordinary everyday american win naturally say Why pick on car Narvon Carter the american is the Man Tut should get after. Certainly Howard Carter is the Man most responsible for the opening of the Tomb. Howard Carter was Riding a Good american Hunch. He believed be was Wise to the approximate Loca tion of the hidden Tomb of Tut ankh amen. His enthusiasm kept Carnarvon bucked up As the englishman put it. And Carters Hunch was the goods. Twice he dug in front of the Large and elaborate Tomb of rameses i an in important King of the xxx dynasty which All the tourists visit and twice he missed it by a few Yards Only. The third time last fall he hit the exact spot. Then he cabled Carnarvon who hastened to Luxor. It was Carter who supervised the excavation. It was Carter who Cut through the Walls to the cat Falque chamber with his own hands. Why Carters persistence in his Hunt for Tut ankh amends Tomb every Egypt Logist was keen to find this particular Tomb which was believed to be the last of importance in the Valley of the Kings. For Tut ankh amen was the son in Law and successor of Kahn Aton the famous heretic King of the Xvi dynasty 1887-1878 b. A. This heretic King renounced poly theism As conducted by the priests of Amon declared for one god refused to make War abandoned his capital at Thebes built a new capital City not far away at tel Lamarna wrote hymns to Aton his new god of love and comforter of them that weep and instructed his court artists to quit conventional egyptian Art and to pie Ture things As they appeared to the Eye. In Short he was an All around reformer who established an egyptian Utopia. Carter found his rifled Tomb in 1907. His City is now being excavated. Tut ankh amen at first called him self Tut ankh Aton and accepted the god of Bis father in Law. Then be abandoned the new capital went Back to Thebes restored the Amon priests with added privileges and changed hts name to Tut ankh amen. Truth to Tell the egyptology its were keen to find his Tomb largely in the Hope of getting data about Kahn Aton who u believed to be the first Man in history to declare a one god religion. Does Tut ankh amends Tomb contain this much desired data nobody knows. The contents have been examined Only in part. The hieroglyphics on the Walls have not been read. The cause Falque has not been opened. There May be other Chambers. Incidentally the archaeological value of the object examined to Date is estimated at 115,000,000. Lord Carnarvon thought the total might run to $00,000,000. It is the greatest archaeological find in All the years of egyptian explore Flop. True it is that the ancient pharaohs did lots of cursing. They posted Many a curse on Stone and Tablet in Public building and Temple. These curses however were mainly directed against those who should fall to carry out the pharaoh s will in respect to those buildings and temples. As to their tombs the pharaohs relied upon the care with which they were hidden and the skill with which Entrance was blocked rather than upon curses upon possible disturber of their last sleep the use of Poison in ancient Egypt was an old Story but there seems to be no record of the poisoning of funerary furniture nevertheless superstitious egyptians express fear for the safety of the immediate family of the dead Man his widow his son lord Portchester who succeeds him his countess is an american woman formerly miss Cath Erine t. Wendell of new York his daughter lady Evelyn Herbert. They Blob think it quite within the possibilities that All who participated in the opening of the cat Falque chamber Are in danger. At the actual opening of the Cham ber there were present several americans of note Howard Carter pro Fessor Charles breasted of the University of Chicago director Winlock of the egyptian expedition of the metropolitan museum of Art new York and curator Lythgoe.

At the Public opening of the chamber three Days later others present included the dowager Sultana Malak of Egypt Morton Howell american minister to Egypt and his wife Queen of the belgians and Prince Leopold Viscount and viscountess Allenby. Some of the More superstitious of the egyptians assume that the curse will even fall upon All who have a celled from lord Carnarvon gifts of objects from the Tomb. This list is said to include lady Elizabeth Bowee Lyon Fiancee of the Duke of York. Lord Carnarvon was born in 1800 and succeeded Hla father in 1890.
