WIsCASSEL. Maine, September 27.
—When the little schooner Bowdoln
landed here yesterday, after being
locked in the ice 333 days north of
Greenland, it brought home not only
a thrilling story of arctic adventure,
hut an invaluable contribution to the
scientific knowledge of the far north.
Dr. Donald B. MacMillan of Free-
I port. Me., seasoned explorer, who was
with Peary on the discovery of the
North Pole, covered anthopology,
botany, geology, ethnology and or
nithology in researches which cover
ed more than a year, exclusive of the
time taken to go and return to Ref
uge Harbor. North Greenland. He
made Intensive studies and brought
back a vast accumulation of notes
and pictures. Observations and re
search in terrislial magnetism and at
mospheric electricity were made by
Richard Goddard of the Carnegie In
stitution. A knock-down frame
house was taken north and reas
sembled on the ice, to house God
dard's instruments. He made eight
months’ continuous records, with the
most complete apparatus even taken
into the north. It is hoped that these
records, when checked with other ob
servations. and formulated by scien
tists at Washington, will throw light
on puzzling phenomena of compass
declination, "internal and external”
terrestial magnetism, the effect of
atmospheric electricity on radio and
other subjects. Caret ul and minute
meterological studies also were made.
"The more 1 see of the Eskimos the
i more 1 become convinced. that their
ancient culture merits the closest sci
entific study we car. give it-" said
Dr. MacMillan. ”1 have observed
them closely, with a view to detect
ing factors of recessive heredity, and
1 am convinced that they are on the
up grade. Their chief contact with
the outside world is through the
Danes, who are showing high intel
ligence in allowing them to maintain
their owr, technique of living and
protecting them against debasing in
fluences. They have such astonish
ing skill in wresting their living
from the wilderness that if they get
supplies of wood and ammunition they
are sure to win. These supplies the
Danes are giving them, to the best
of their ability, and I noted general
prosperity and happiness among
them.
"The Danes are pursuing what X
believe to he a wise policy in inter
fering to the least possible degree
with the old Eskimo culture. Their
tribal customs, domestic regime, re
ligion and general ethnic culture re
main as they must have thousands of
years ago.
Organisation Loose.
"The Eskimo tribe is a loose or
ganization. based not upon force, but
upon general consent and belief.
While they have no authoritative
head, the angekok, or priest, as
sumes a position of great prestige.
Just as the clergymen in our evan
gelistic churches, he attains leader
ship through answering what we are
accustomed to term “the call.”
In response to a vision, or a voice,
he gradually assumes the position of
spokesman for the benign spirits and
becomes proficient in breaking evil
spells and driving away malignant
spirits. Eskimo priestcraft is con
cerned almost entirely with propitiat
ing, or circumventing, evil spirits.
When I have questioned the Eskimos
regarding prayer to their good spirits
they have been astonished. They
have asked me, naively, why it should
be necessary to ask a good spirit to
render any special favor. It was to
be assumed that the good spirits
were doing all in their power any
way. They conceived evil as a real
ity, to be combated, and, in facing
the dilemma, compelling a choice be
tween a beneficent or malignant
ruling agency, they had chosen the
former, but had been compelled to
assume that he was not omnipotent.
It was to me an interesting parallel
of some of our own more sophisti
cated, but perhaps not more conclu
sive. theological speculation.
“From the time of the discovery
of Labrador, probably early in the
sixteenth century, missionaries from
various countries made determined
assaults on the ancient Eskimo do
mestic customs and superstitions, but
without success. The Eskimos kept
placidly on their way with their old
arrangements. It is today. Girls
of 12 to 14 years are married to men
of 25, or even 50. They may have
one, two or three wives, occasionally
trading wives. They get along
pleasantly in this way. The number
of wives is usually determined by the
man's skill as a hunter. To have
three wives is a mark of superiority.
A youth asks the consent of the par
ents of his prospective bride, usually
accompanying it with a gift. Consent
of the girl is the only marriage cere
mony. There is little or no secret
promiscuity among them. The young
folks generally start housekeeping
with the bride's parents. The wife’s
sister is often taken in as a servant,
or as a second wife. Children are
tenderly loved and cared for. Some
times, when there is competition for
a girl, it is settled by a wrestling
match. The best man wins.
Believes in Immortality.
"The Eskimos have a very clear,
definite and unquestioning belief in
an immortal soul. They reverse our
ideas of the prospective dwelling
places of the righteous and the wick
ed. Their hell is in heaven—it seems
quite natural when you see an Arctic
blizzard bearing down upon you—and
their heaven is in the warm, shelter
ing earth. An Eskimo must always
die in the open—never in the tupik
or igloo. It is regarded as a disaster
when this happens. At the point of
death, he is taken out and left in a
snowhouse, with the roof open for
soul to pass through. After death,
he is warmly dressed and placed in
the open, according to the slant and
direction of the hillside, with food

about him. Then a rock tomb is
built about him, care being taken
that it does not touch the body.
"They conceive the after life to be
much more pleasant than this one.
with much to be learned and much
achieved, but with more plentiful
food. At the feet of a woman, they
place her drying rack, needle and
soap stone utensils.
Hltanl Elaborate.
"The Angekok has quite an elabor
ate ritual in breaking the spell of
Torng-Ak, the most formidable evil
spirit. He is proficient in the use of
amulets, and the foot of the sea
pigeon, which is believed to be espe
cially efficacious. He makes use of
the drum, using it to accompany his
frightful yells and gesticulations. 1
have brought one of the Angekok’s
drums with me.
“I believe there is no question of
the Eskimos being of Mongolian deri
vation. Their long torsos, short legs,
slant eyes and other revealing physi
cal characteristics seem to me to
prove it beyond doubt. Incidentally,
this fact, combined with similarities
of flora and fauna between the two
continents, seem to me to go a 16ng
way in substantiation of the land
bridge theory.
"My head measurements of the Es
kimos show that they are neither
dolichocephalic nor brachycephalic.
They are mesaticaphalic, or half way.
between the round-headed and long
headed types.
"For some reason I found several
cases of tuberculosis among them on
this trip, although they are unusu
ally free from other diseases. I took
a census of the Smith Sound tribe
and found they had increased from
215 to 275 since my last trip. As they
eat raw or frozen meat there Is no
scurvy among them. This diet was
our own protection and we learned
to like it. We shot walrus, seals,
musk oxen, eider ducks, narwhal and
various kinds of edible birds, includ
ing puffins. The puffin closely re
sembles a duck with the exception
of its gaudy parrot beak. This beak is
to me one of the most interesting in
stances of far northern adaptation.
Years ago I was puzzled in seeking the
survival value of a parrot beak on a
duck, but I found the answer when
I discovered that puffins dig holes
and live in them. As there is no ma
terial on the barren rocky islands
tor nest building the puffin developed
the formidable beak as a digging
tool. They are extremely gregarious
birds, often appropriating an island,
where they sit in solemn conclave
much like penguins.
(toast Line Sinking.
“The coast line of North Greenland
unquestionably sinking. We found
clam shells at a height of 1.100 feet
above the present shore line. The
location of the Eskimo igloos gives
further proof of this. They are con
stantly building farther and farther
back from the shore. Many of the
igloos are now under water. The gla
cial moraines are sinking. The entire
country is glaciated, the striae run
ning from northeast to southwest. I
was curious in noting that radio
waves seemed to travel only in this
same direction. 1 could learn nothing
to justify a conclusion as to any con
nection between the two phenomena.
“The rocks are igneous and meta
i*,orphic and show the contortions of
tremendous heat and pressure.
Evetn the sandstone is metamor
phic and is extremely hard. The
prevailing formations are gneiss,
granite and red cyanite. There is an
abundance of coal, but it is doubt
ful to me whether it can ever be
used. The Eskimos tried to use it,
but having no stove one family was
asphyxiated by burning it uncovered
in their tupik.
Compiles Dictionary'.
”1 have compiled a partial diction
ary of the Eskimo language. It is
unique in that it is almost entirely
derived from utility. One might char
acterize it as a dynamic language. J
can find no words for abstract ideas
or qualities, save for the use denoted
by the particular word. For instance,
the word for dog is "that which
pulls.” So far my study of their
language has failed to yield any of
those clues as to origins and early
tribal history and racial relationships
which philological inquiry usually re
veals. However, it is a fruitful in
quiry, particularly in throwing light
on the Eskimos, apparent inability to
generalize—words denoting general
izations being entirely lacking. I
shall continue this study on my later
expeditions.
“I took a sledge trip of 1.000 miles
to Eilsmere Land where among other
activities we made some studies of
the musk oxen. We got about 20.000
feet of moving picture film, includ
ing some particularly good pictures
of the narwhal, the ancient ‘sea uni
corn’ which carries a seven-foot ivory
harpoon on its nose. I believe it uses
this spear, not only to fight, but to
spear halibut, the halibut being fed
into the creature’s mouth as it swims
forward with the fish impaled, by a
left-hapded screw which traverses
the spear from tip to root. These
ivory spears were found in Greenland
long before the narwhal was known
and the fabled unicorn was built up
around them."
