The Wok-Wok Most Dre<
I
He's h Itaboon ?;iiosl and Kn
?Trial by Ordeal Still I1
Child by Hie Offer oI C!
HE Zamboanga (Philippine
i a" Islands) correspondent to
O T ? "ie 'Sow ^-or^ Sun, writes:
^ The wok-wok ia a hairy
ghost devil. He is a baboon,
mi go, long limbed, Irresistibly
strong, who comes out only in the
dark to carry one off for murder, lie
is invulnerable to wounds and iiuinor,
tal. lie lives altogether on the south
ern lsianus, ami principally loves iu
hide in wait in the darkest corners
of tlio coeoauut grove at night,
i There is only one thing that can
really bailie a wok-wok, and that is
water. That Is one reason why the
| Moros love to build their houses on
I tiny piers above >he sea. No one cares
I to have wok-woks prowling about.
Now and then you can see a line
- of torches, made of bundles of grass
tied on a pole, bobbing along through
the darkness. The palms east ghostly
' shadows, dancing across the trail
| ahead. A little moon shows the shapes
of unnamed horrors against the sky.
' Often the torches halt and huddle,
wavering in a hunch, ion know what
that means. A belated party of Moros
is hurrying homeward, and far off,
weird, mysterious in tin* underbrush
some rustling sends shivers of fear
through the loneliness. Allah knows
it is a wild pig, but how can mortal
J tell rhat it is not the warning of a
w i;, crawling nearer and nearer
through Hit' gloom on his prey?
In Siassi they have Hags Hying to
frighten away wok-woks. Siassi is a
very wok-woky spot indeed. At most
places they only miess that there are
wok-woks, but at Siassi they know it.
For this is the certain proof: A wise
man decided ages ago that if there
must be devils, it is better to have them
good humored than not. So ho ordered
Hint each week howls of food ho sot
out at n point in the forest. A hungry
wok-wok is naturally worse tempered
than one who lias oaten.
Each seventh day ever since has the
offering been put out. Hence the proof.
For in the morning when the slaves
go tiptoeing forth to bring in the empty
; bowls they lind that nil the lisli and
rice are gone. Never once have the
wok-woks failed to devour it overnight.
j It is not alone In the matter of wok|
woks that our fintall brown brothers
, involve Providence in their daily af
fair." Among them, as in Europe in
! th .Middle Ages, nnd in our own New
rmglnnd, tile judgment of Uod is In

guilt is determined by throwing a coin
in a pot of boiling water, and making
the prisoner pick it out with his naked

if he is innoccnl he escapes unhanned.
In murder cast's where two men are
Kuspe. led their names are written on
, two similar pleccn of parchment. These
j pieces are then folded tip and placed
! in watertight boxes. Two divers of
equal skill are selected, and each takes
one of tlie boxes. They dive together
at a given signal, remaining under
water as long at possible. The box
carried by the tirjt man to come to the
surface contains the name of the guilty
' man.
Among the Mojos, as among the Indians,
certain si. knesses are believed
to be evil spirits In the last cholera
epidemic at Siasst a little boy was
very ill. His parents nn<l tliolr friends
were wailing ami sobbing about the
house when an old villain of a IlaJJi
hove in sight, and offered to work on
the evil one who was tormenting the
child. The parents were overjoyed
) and after wild movements and whispered
incantations the Ilajjl went into
u trance.
He sat Immovable for a few minutes.
Then lie spoke, dreamily, liis eyes fixed
?m fur oil mysteries. The spirit, In"
said, was in him. It was a pretty
tough old spirit, lnlt he thought that if
it were put in a good humor something
might be done With it. It wanted
chow now. It was no use fooling with
a spirjt that had m>t dined for* nine
months.
So the parents brought eggs and llsh
and riee and Japiova cakes, and the
TIaJJi kindly ate them for the spirit's
trance cinfwyp pip Jf
sake. Then he Went Into another
trance. The spirit was no longer lain

presents, it said. There were several
pearls that the father owned that
! would please It immriisely, and a pony,
find a tine gold handled krlss. The
spirit xald that the Iln.lJI ronhl take
those presents anil guard them for it.
The father hesitated, but Ids little
j sou was groaning in agony. lie gave
up to the spirit his pwarla and his pony
and his I;rlss.
The spirit was pretty cheerful after
that. It desired sleep, though. After
It woke np it would talk. So It went
off with the llajji and slept under a
lianana tree until supper time. Then
it had another meal. The child was

At Bnlabnc there is a famous haunted
rock called the Diamond Stone. There
is a tradition that Iontr ago the English
Government offered Spain ?1,000,000
sterling for It. Itut Spain refused to
sell.
It is a curious rock, of a rough round , I
shape, about ten foot in diameter. It .
is composed chielly of quart/., but there ! .
are no truces of metals of precious ;
stones about it. There is a hole some '
three inches deep in one side, where a |
man once started to drill with the pur- j
pose of blasting. The stor.v jroes that |
lie was immediately made ill by (he
?n!l'lf lll'lf (nmrito tlii, t-miL- iitwl lliui llik '
died l days la tor. No one lias
(lured to follow his example since.
There Is, however. In Kalabac a vast
deal of mineral wealth without the '
drawbacks of evil spirits. In a brief
ramble back into the hills 1 found some
gold-bearing quartz, though i saw no (
traces of gold. There were also rich j
markings of copper, c'llcily in the form
of cuprite and of green hydrous copper
carbonate. There were traces, too, ^
traces of a very poor form of brown
coal, but it is reported (hat back in the (
forests are Spanish mines which in old
times furnished an excellent quality (
of coal.
Hut over the copper ami coal of l'.alabac,
as over all the forests and wealth
of the Philippines, hangs a spirit more
deadly to development than all the
wok-woks that ever existed the spirit
of the laws of the islands, and the duties
the laws entail.

1 nduiibiuilly the Anierican Indian in
liis primeval stale was a lino specimen
of physical manhood. Dr. 10. .1. Kompf,
who has made a careful investigation ;
into frontier history, has found that l>e- :
fore tlie Indians were contaminated :
l?y tin- white race they never were afllicted
with .smallpox, measles, tuber- J
cuiosis, gout, scurvy, insanity, nervous j
diseases nor any oth?r of the ills and I
blood affections which have in late
years made such terrible inroads upon
the numbers and vitality of the red
men of this country.
'I'he only bodily atlllflions which Dr. I
Kempf reports to tho Medical Iteconl
that ho found among 11 u> aborigines |
were fevers and diseases produced l>y
cold, such a:: pleurif.;.*,jjueumen:!'., rheumatism,
dysentery and wounds from
accidents or battle. Naturally the
remedies of the Indians were simple ]
and few in number. When sick an In- !
dian refused all kind* of sti 11111 l:itiutr
aliments, hut drank profusely of cold
water. In addition to this. In proper
eases the Indlau resorted to sweating,

These methods of euro nri> still roI
sorted to among 1?hink>*t Indians who
are removed from tin- Intlm-nccs of civ|
ill/.ntlon. Hut before we smile or conI
demn those practice* wo should consider
our own history. It was only a
few generations ago that our ideas of
medicine wore almost as crude as those
of tho Indians. The more intelligent of
the white people then, of course, did ;
not resort to magic and ineaillations, '
hut the eoneoetions which they maim- ,
faelurcd to cure diseases almost pass 1
belief. Oliver Wendell Holmes, in his
"Medical History of Massachusetts," j
has made a permanent record of some
of the practices then prevailing' among !
the colonists. (iovcnror Winthrop was I

They (lo not need to kill (heir missionaries

sutlicient to let thein leave the country
unrestrained, Hishop Corfe lately did
so. Ite found the Koreans at once
friendly and unnpproaehnhle, for they
listened with genuine Interest to his
endeavors to preach the gospel In a
language which he could not use correctly.
He was, it seems, like other
missionaries who had preceded him,
distinctly amusing. Rapt congregations
in Korea have been told, not that J.afcarns
fell sick, hut that lie entered a
bottle; that hell is a collar, and that the
careless sinner is like a donkey (tho
preacher meant a butterfly) in a spider's
web. Besides, there are seven
ways of saying so simple a thing as
"Good morning," and you are in danger

one. To a boy you must say it one
