Superstition of Eastern .Indians as

Dana Nicolar, a quarter blooded In

of his tribe by consenting to have his

Among the beliefs held by the a
Abenaki tribe is one which asserts fl
that the great spirit has made from 8

Indian who wears the salhoii totem.
The original figure, which is the i

On festive occasions when a brave
is married or when he takes the scalp
of an enemy, lie is permitted to throw
stones into these watery hiding places
and stir up an aquatic duplicate of
himself. When the submerged Indian
rises near the surface the terrestrial
Indian may look in the water and see
himself. But every Indian is Caution
ed to be economical in drawing upon
his duplicates, as every time lie sees
his image in the pool lie uses up a
part of himself, and when the last one
is gone the Indian must (lie.
As every loyal Abenaki believes
that sitting before a camera is as bad
for his health as invoking his picture
from the bottom -of a pond, the ama
teur photographer is not a welcome
visitor at any tribal function. At
times this inherited animosity takes
the form of action, and the photogra

- "GIMPY BILL'S" ESCAPE.
Th'illing Empelence. of a Legless
San Francisco Man.
Every resident of San Francisco
knows "Gimpy Bill," though perhaps
not by that name, says a special dis
patch from San Frahcisco to thb Wash
ington Post. He Is a cripple and men
dicant, who sells lead yencils on Mar
ket street. His legs have been cut off
at*the very hips, and in place of legs
'he moves on wheeled platforms
strapped to the stumps. He works
himself along the pavements with two
short canes, and his head is about at
the level of the head of a ,dog. He is
a man on castors instead of legs.
When the earthquake came Bill was
sleeping over -a saloon on Washington
I street, near , Montgomery-a region
which got a heavy shock. His street
legs were unstrapped, but he had his
clothes on. He was pitched out of bed
and rolled about the room like an
empty demijohn. A heavy cornice fell
through the ceiling of his room and
missed him by a foot. He rolled away
I from the wreck and managed to get
his rollers, which he strapped on. He
tried the door, but the wreckage out
I side it had him penned in a prisoner.
I He trundled himself to the window
and saw that the district was on fire.
Bill made it bac to the bed, twisted
the blankets and sheets into a rope,
tied his canes about his neck with a
cord and slid out of the window. His
rope was too short. At the end of it he
hung ten feet above the streets. There
he swung and yelled, afraid of what
the drop might do to his trundle plat
forms, until some passing person
threw up a pile of boxes and helped
In one day, driven always backward
by the fire, this cripple covered about
fourteen miles, ending In a camp at
Golden Gate park. At one time he
grabbed the tailboard of a wagon and
held on, his platforms bumpiu over
the cobbles. At 'another time his only
way of escape from the fire was across
Russian hill, up which an Italian pull
ed him with a rope for 10 cents.
