will be realized, as it would be a great
benefit to all of the troops. We have,
as yet, heard nothing official in regard
to such an organization. At the en
campment at Peoria, one of the regu
lar army' officers who was stationed
with us, told us about the organization
of the army into three wings, one to
be known as the army of the east, an
other as the army of the great lakes
and the other as the army of the gulf.
"If such a thing is brought about,
our men will be subjected to examina

higher standard will be maintained
among our troops. Army officers will
be appointed to visit the various com

Shadow Legends of the Zulus
. That mysterious counterpart of a
human being which lengthens with
the day and disappears with tbe sun,
to reappear more faintly with the
rising of the moon, which we call a
shadow, bus always struck the imagi
nation of man. It has played a promi
nent part in primitive superstition and
in later folklore. Shadows or shades
was the classical name or figure for
the spirits of the departed which still
remains in use.
This idea Is not confined to civilized
races. Among the Zulus the spirit is
the shade. Bishop Callaway, whose
knowledge of Zulu beliefs and modes
of thought was unrivaled, says that
the Zulus connect the lodily shade
with the future disembodied spirit.
They believe that the shadow cast by
the body will ultimately become the
"itongo." or spirit, when the body dies,
and they s:iy that the long shadow
shortens "as a man approaches his end
and contracts into a very little thing.
When they see the shadow of a man
thus contracting, they Lnow he will
die. The long shadow goes away
when a man is dead, and it is that
which Is meant when it is said, 'The
shadow has departed.' " There is, how
ever, a short shadow which remains
with the body und is buried with it.
The lon; shadow becomes an ances
IdentiSeation of tbe shadow in any
mysterious or spiritual way with the
person whose body casts it, naturally
leads to respect for the strange second
self. To tread on the shadow of a
chief is an Insult to the chief himself.
In the Institutes of Manu. the ancient
Hindu law giver, the law runs:
"Let him not intentionally pass over
the shadow of sac-red images, of a
natural or spiritual father, of a king,
of a Brahmin who keeps house, or of
any reverend personage, nor of one
who has just performed a sacrifice."
There are traces of the survival of
these primitive ways of regarding a
man's shadow in the English country
feeling that It is uulucky to cross the
path of a newly married man as he
leaves the altar; and in another rural
belief that it is unlucky to cross the
path of horses ploughing when the sun
Is shining behind them.
Association between shadows and
mirrored representations of the human
form is obviously natural, so It is not
surprising to hud superstitions about
the shadow mingled with widely scat
tered versions of the Narcissus legend.
Tbe story of the beautiful youth who
became enamored ot his own image,
as he saw it represented In the water,
and languished thereafter till he died,
has its orlj;iu in the belief that trouble
follows from beholding the watery
"Let him not look at Ms own imnge
In water; that Is a settled rule," com
mands Manu. the Hindu law giver.
The reasou for the prohibition is to
be found in the beliefs of man in a
primitive state of civilization. The
Melanesians of the Pat'lie, says a
learned observer, say: "There is a
stream in Saddle Island, or, rather, a
pool In a streiim. into which if any
one looks be dies; the malignant spirit
takes hold upon his life by means of
his reflection in the water." Some
such Idea as this was probably the
root of the Natci.-stis legend.
The Zulus explain why it U ill to

of a great beast in the water which
