FOOD FOR SPIRITS
Young Children Considered Dain.
ties in West Africa.
So When Great Man Dies, the Little
Ones, With Slaves, Are Killed
and Buried With Him.
Some strange superstitlons of West
African n(groes are described by 1'.
L,. Tenigely in the l.ondon i.aily Mall.
If he will, the juju man (witch doe
tor) of West Africa at tell you that
whenl a inani dies ils spirit, or spirits,
will remain behind and wlaider about
the earth while lie will "go away."
It is not clear what is ieant by "he"
:is distinct from his spirits, or where
"he" goes when he does "go awaN"
but Obviously it Is to i plte wvhere,
if lie hle it big chief, lie will wilit serv
ants to serve him, andi therefore when
lie dies slaves are killed, and also
young children. But these latter are
.illied for another imirpose, as the
dollowlig remathrky will show.
These wandering spirits are of two
kiInds-good,, or. at least harmless,
Called ")ilpples," and evil ones, known
"Dupples," the juju man will tell
you, can be seen in various forms.
There used to bei a resthouse on a
bench in southern "Nigeria whidh fell
into disuse l~eenuse, as many white
men used to know, cineer' black forms,
sometimes like monkeys, used to run
about the veranda andl, the rooms at
night making weird noises. They did
no harm, being, as every native knew,
The "Jumbli," however, is a terrible
thing-so awful that whoever sees one
Ills homie Is in the silk-cotton, or
cebia tree, and he kills the person who
cuts one down. Blacks of educatedi
West Indian descent will never cut
down a silk-cotton tice.
"Jumlibls" eat dead l)odies, preferring
those of children, though there is noth
Ing they like better than rice.
Hence when a man or woman dies
a quantity of rice is placed near the
grave under a cover resembling a can
dIe extinguisher, only with holes in the
sides. The object of the holes is to
enable the thin, hungry "Jumbil" to en
ter the receptacle, where he gorges
himself until lie is too fat to get out
A fresqh supply of rice is daily placed
under the dome to make up for what
the "Juimbis" have eaten. (There are
lots of rats and ground pigs in West
Africa.) The process is kept up until
the ninth day, when a "wake" is held,
and the "Jumbis" are driven away by
noise and fee-ack (native magle).
That is one way of keeping the "Jum
bis" from the dead. But if a great
man dies lie has another chance of
being undisturbed ; for then young clil
dren are killed, al( the "juibli" eats
them rather than the old person.
Many years ago, when King Take
died, the then governor, in the lIope of
preventing any secret slaughter, or
dered that he should have a grai?
funeral, "white man fashion."
It was a great day for the natives,
several white officials attending the
burial in the center of the royal com
pound, where, by order, they remained
until the grave was filled uip.
But despite these precautions, at
dead of night the juju priests had1( their
innings. Take wvas dug up andi~ re
buried in native fashiotn together wIth
his slaves and several chIldren.
The word "southpaw," used fre
quently ini the course of r-eferenices to
baseball gamies, is a bit of slang whlich
wvhich has crept inito the languaige d1ur
ing the last few yearzs--a colloquialism
which has behind it rather- more of a
logical pedigree than most slang words
That the batter may not have to
fate the rays of the setting sun at
any time of the year, a basebiali dia
miend is usually laid out so that the!
batter's box faces due east. The
pitcher, therefore, faces westwvard,
while his right hamnd is toward the
north and his left hiand is toward the
south. As the majority of pitchers
are right-handed, It was only natural
that an exception to tIs rule should
be singled out for a certain specific
title--and the name "southpaw" was
adopted on account of the usual
points of the compass inu conniection
with the diamond itself. The eccen..
tricities of Rube W~addell and other
"soulthpaws" have made the name
synonymous with "erratic," so far as
baseball language is concerned,
though there is no medical support for
the theory that left-handed persons
are more peculiar than thoso who use
their right hands.
AerIal Time Tables.
So important has become conser
cial avIation in France that there is
being publIshed a monthly time table
of all the air services operating in
France and allied eounutries. ,
timie table, known as L .adicateur
Aerion, gives such. information as the.
time of departure and arrival, routes,
type of plane employed, weighs of lug
gage allowed, rates, andi so on. The
little publication appears on the- first
of ovcery month..--Scientifie Amb~rIcan.
