THE VIKINGS OF OLD INTERRED
THEIR DEAD IN SHIPS.
An Ancient Legend of the Fabled Pirates
of the Northern Seas That Kesembles In
Many Respects the Grecian Story of In
From the ancieDt Scandinavian literature
we learn a great deal that is interesting
about the customs anJ manner Of. living of
the hardy Norsemen of old. There has
been thus preserved a curious story relat
ing to the origin of ship burial. Those
bold vikings, being rather more at home
on the water than on land, were commonly
interred in mounds together withtheir ves
sels, the great seagoing boat sometimes
lerving as a kind of sarcophagus for con
taining many corpses.
The model of the viking ship now on
exhibition in the National museum is a
restored reproduction on a small scale of a
big vessel that was found some years ago
at Uokstad, in Norway. It was dug out of
a mound, which had been known for
centuries as the King's mound, because of
a tradition to the effect that a royal per
Bonage had been interred there with all
his treasures. It was in the expectation of
securing the latter that the mound was
first opened by robbers, who carried away
a great deal that would have been of
interest to science and the world.
The story I (.peak of refers to the age of
fable, when the Scandinavian north was
peopled by a race of gods, whose king was
Odin. Odin and his wife, Freya, had two
sons, Balderand Thor.. Balder was beauti
ful and gentle and was beloved by the
gods, who looked to his dreams for guid
ance. He had, however, one enemy, Loki,
the evil god. One night Haider in a dream
heard a voice telling him that his life was
in danger, and in the morning he told his
mother of it. Freya was greatly worried,
and going to all things animal, mineral
and vegetable she exacted of them an oath
that they would not harm Balder.
While on her mission Freya came to one
little plant, the mistletoe, which appeared
to be incapable of working harm, and thus
no oath was exacted of it. When Freya
had finished lier task she returned home
and told Balder and his friends what she
had done, and the gods in their plays often
amused themselves by shooting arrows or
throwing stones at his invulnerable body
to see them swerve aside just lefore reach
ing him. Loki, however, being determined
to do Balder harm, went to Freya disguised
as an old woman, and learned from her the
only thing that might be employed in in
juring his tuemy. Then hurrying away
he found the little mistletoe, and carving
it into an arrow returned to the spot where
the gods amused themselves shooting at
Baldr. Apart from the crowd stood Hoder,
the blind, and approaching him Loki in
duced him to shoot the arrow at Balder,
who fell shot through the heart.
Odin mourned three days, and then he
ordered that Bidder's body be carried to
the seashore and be placed upon the ship
Stringholmi, together with his armor,
splendid clothes, and his horse, with all its
trappings. The ship was launched, and
fire from the friction of the rollers burned
it, together with its contrnts, to ashes.
And Odin ordered that all dead men should
be burned upon their ships, together with
all their property, the remains to be col
lected and covered with a mound of earth.
Of crematories of this kind the ship
grave at Mokkiebyst, Norway, affords an
excellent illustration. The mrr.ind is lo
cated in a plain, in full view of the sea
over which the buried ship used to bound.
All around the mound is a ditch twelve
feet wide and three feet deep, which, on
the south and west, is traversed by a bridge
like dam. The interior ci the mound pre
sents two layers one of bone splinters in
termixed with soil and cinders, and the
other consisting of cinders and burned re
mains. Over this a number of objects were
strewn which showed that here a ship had
been hauled ashore and gayly decorated
with shields around its bulwarks and with
arms and other articles of war piled up,
serving thus as the funeral pyre of its com
mander. The remains in this instance having
been consumed they were collected in a
flat bronze vessel, together with some per
sonal propert y of the owner, consisting of
two combs, checker men, dice and arrow
Leads. This receptacle holding the re
mains of tbe dead chief was placed in an
excavation at the bottom of the mound.
Above it a number of articles were piled.'
In an untanned goatskin were found the
nnburned remains tf animal bones, possi
bly the portion assigned to the dead man
from the funeral feast for his long jour
ney to Walhalla. The bottom of the
mound was covered with hundreds of
nails, mountings, mast rings, anchors,
shields and other things.
In another kind of Norse burial the body
was placed in tbe ship without being
burned, the entire Yessel being covered
with earth so as to form a large mound.
Tbe best known example of this style of
interment is afforded by the buried ship at
Gokstad. An excavation of this mound,
conducted with great care by opening a
passageway through the middle, rewarded
the scientific explorers by revealing an
entire ship eighty feet in length. In the
middle of the ship was a large grave cham
ber of wood in the form of a span roof with
gable, in w hich the remains of the dead
were deposited. The spot for the mound
was required to have a free view of the
After digging away the soil from the
place chosen the ship was drawn thither
by horses and lowered with its stem sea
ward into the excavation, being sta:. on
each side with struts. The sepulchral
chamber was then built. When it was
ready the corpse, arrayed in state attire
and girt with arms, was drawn to the
ground, introduced into the chamber
through an opening temporarily left for
that purpose and laid on a couch within.
The opening was then permanently closed.

Swift 'Was a "Dunce" at SctaooL
Not only philosophers and divines, but
some of the most trenchant satirists and
brilliant humorists were dull enough as
boys. It has been said of Swift in his best
days that "he displayed either the blasting
lightning of satire or tbe lamleut and me
teorlike caricatures of frolicsome humor."
And yet this vigorous disputant was consid
ered a fit subject for a fool's cap nt school.
Afterward, at the Dublin university, "he
was by scholars esteemed a blockhead,"
who was denied his degree on his first ap
plication, and obtained it with great diffi
culty on the second. London Standard.
