Tragic Tale of Harem Victims'
More than ten thousand Armenian
girls have been rescued from Turkish
harems through the help and gener

these tragic victims of Turkish cruelty

It seems that the world will
never git rid of fakers. For food
or ill, there have been and are, a
great many people using the In
dians as their mascot. They pose
as real Indians, when in reality
they are not Indians.
AD Indian conversing with one
of them can readily see that they
are not Indians, and walks off dis
gusted, while the great majority
of the people look on at the feath
ers, the long false hair, and their
Indian paraphernalia, and believe
they are Indians.
These impostors are generally
in business of some sort that re
quires lndianism, such as imitating
the songs and dances of bygone
days. Indians are not go id act
ors, but these impostors are, and
they receive ready applause from
the audience. A show man does
not care whether they are Indians
or not, just so long as they please
Another type of impostor is the
medicine distributor on the streets.
Be has all sorts of snakes, bides
of animals, etc, hanging on his
wagon, bottles of rattlesnake or
other snake oil. He will have In
dians in native garb, a cowboy
twirling a rope. From his wagon
to the crowd before him he will
howl out his cure for all ailments
by the newly discovered Indian
medicine that science ban been
blind to, and there comes a hired
man from the audience to test the
great remedy now creeping from
the mystic circle.
We have Indian impostors -that
claim an Indian has supernatural
power, physically and mentally.
With that in mind he goes around
the country advising the people of
their distorted minds, and by a
powerwhich he claims only In
dians possess, he tells his patients
what to do and what not to do.
He being an Indian is the virtue,
and he may give herb medicine
Indian,impostors'"are found in
mystic circles, where the dead
are brought back to earth. It
appears that spirits of departed
ones are guided by the spirits of
dead Indians. So it pays to pose
as an Indian, and speak to the
spirits for those who wish to hear
from their departed relatives.
From the foregoing description
of the Indian impostors, the ques
tion is, do they do any good to the
Indian race? They may do some
good to other people, but they do
more harm than good to the In
It certainly shows that these
impostors are working for selfish
purposes, and not to benefit the
Indian race. We must have mon
ey to live, but using the India*
for show purposes is a poor busi
ness and does more harm than
good for the Indian race. The
Indian is not a faker, he cannot
be any mpre than just what ho is.
He is simple and fcrue all the way
through, his character shuns
falsity and impersonating his race
