Legends of the Various Tribes
Have Background of Locality.
From the N«w York Times.
Washington Irving’s ideal of seeing
an American folklore created has
never been realised, chiefly for the
reason that except in a few places
the American people have had little
occasion to do more than embody In
tradition the exploits of famous local
characters, and, on rare occasions, to
associate with some landmark a
legend which more often than not bad
Its origin In the old world.
But If the white race has been
backward In this respect and has
turned to the fairy tales of Europe
for stories to tell its children, this
Is not true of the negroes nor of the
Indians. Too little publicity has been
given to Indian folklore. Much of it
Is still bound up In musty volumes
of museums and Journals of ethnol
ogy and anthropology. There have
been, of course, a number of attempts
to popularize some of the Indian
tales. A dozen or more years ago a
volume of Zuni Indian myths was
published in popular form, and a
number of other tribal collections
have also been put before the public.
But there is still general ignorance
of the fact that in the various Indian
tribes Is a wealth of material pos
sessing poetical and literary value
and having the background of locali
ty, which is the principal charm of
so many old world legends.
It Is only natural that many Indian
tales deal with animals. How the
geese came to migrate and how the
chipmunk got his stripes, how the
birds got their color and similar
topics form the subject of numerous
New Disk.
From Judge.
The young man who was accus
tomed to having an early breakfast
every day was absent one morning,
having gone to see his wife off on an
early train.
Returning to the house son® time
later, he said to the cook:
"Well, Jane, I have no spouse this
“ 'Taln’t my fault, sur,” she replied
Indignantly. “I sho’ cooked it fo'
yuh, but you jes' wouldn’t come eat

Riding In a specially constructed
and luxurious Cadillac eight limou
sine valued at about SIO,OOO, with
trailer attached carrying complete
camping outfit. Chief Isaac Bear of I,
the Yakima Tribe of Indians, from
the Osage Reservation In Oklahoma,
accompanied by Mrs. Bear, arrived in
Laredo, Tex.
The handsome limousine in which
the Yakima chief and his wife are
traveling Is one of the most expensive
cars ever brought to Laredo and will
be here several days before the party
proceeds on Its way to the Browns
ville country and thence on to Hous
ton, Galveston and back to Okla
Chief Bear and his wife visit La
redo semi-annually, and while here
make side trips to old Mexico. Dur
ing his visit here last fall Chief Bear
had his car stolen and later wrecked
by those who took it, but this time,
with his fine car, he is more careful
and keeps It in a local garage under
la watchman.
Chief Bear is one of the wealthiest
Indians of Oklahoma and has a num
ber of producing oil wells on his
land, and from these ho has a big
monthly Income.
By taking aboard 274,500 bushels
of wheat in six r.nd one-fourth hours

Grandees to Aid in Bull Fight.
SAN SEBASTIAN, September I—The

former member of Parliament, are to
take part in a bull fight, which will
shortly be held at Manzanares, in the
province of Ciudad Real. They will
wear thw customary bull fighter’s
costume, and act as picadors.
From Tapper’» Weekly.
The prosecuting attorney was ex
amining a negro witness.
“Now, Mcse.” he said, “tell us what
you know about this fight.”
“Well, boss, I think ”
"Never mind what you think. Just
tell us what you know.”
’ But, boss, 1 ain’t- no lawyer. I
cain't talk without thinkin’.”
