Xew Yoi:u. Jlnrch 27. Professor Gar
ner arrived here on the steamer Ktruria
from his stay in the wilds of Africa for
many months, where with his cages and
phonographs he lias been endeavoring to
catch the language of the simian tribes.
The most interesting part of an interview
he gave on the subject of his task was this:
"During my stay in the cage I recorded
about twelve words of the chimpanzee
language- and about half as many of those
of the gorilla tongue. I found that the
two were entirely different. The chim
panzee was the much more docile and foe
that reason I made more headway in
learning their words. To reduce them to
writing, however, would lie utterly impos
sible, tor there i.s no alphabet on earth that
is capable of expressing the peculiar
"They are the most barbarous that the
human ear ever listened to. and about as
hard to imitate as to write. The vocabu
lary is very limited not more than 2.H
words in all. I should say but they can
express a great many emotions by varying
the inflection, intonation, or loudness o!
their words In fact, there are but very
few simple sounds, and it is by rinsing
the chances upon these that the' simians
are enabled to muke known what is goiui;
on in their minds. To get at the bottom
of ail t'ds, of course, will require years
of patient investigation, and for that pur
pose I will probably go back to Africa in
a little while. "
