Sense of Direction.
The- apparently marvelous way in
which Indians. Eskimos and other/
primitive people make their way
through forests. snow covered areas or
other regions which have little to indi
cate direction to whi'e newcomers has
led to a widespread belief that they
possess a mysterious sixth sense of di
rection. Vilbjailmur Stefansson. the
arctic traveler. who has liveti - much
with Eskimos. is very skeptical about
the existence of any superiority of
sense (if direetion among primitive peo
ples of any kind and gives strong evi
dence from lersonal experience that
Eskimos have no such superiority. The
-ability of Indians and others to find
their way he attributes solely to their
familiarity with the country through
which they are traveling. They note
many things that they have seen be
fore and that have no significance to
the stranger In their land. White men
can and do acquire the same ability to
find their way when they have learned
to know a country. When the land is
equally strange to the white man and
the Indian or Eskimo. the white man.
because of his better devel6ped ieason
lug pover. is more likely to have a cor
rect Idea of' direction than the Eskimo.
The Literal Mind.
Man is never literal in the expression
of 'his ideas except in matters most
triviaL Very often man's words are
not a language at all. but merely a vo
cal gesture of the dumb. They may
Indicate. tut do not express. his
thoughts. The more vital his thoughts
the more have his words to be explain
ed by -the context of his life. Those
who seek to know his meaning by the
aid of the dictionary only technically
reach the bou.m. for they are stopped
by the outside wall and find no en
trance to the hall. This is the reason
why the teachings ot our greatest
prophets give rise to endless disputa
tions when we try t'o understand them
by following their words and not by
realizing them in our own lives. The
men who are cursed with the gift of
the literal mind are the unfortunate
ones' who are -aiways busy with their
nets and neglect the ftishng.--Sad
