you will have disaster?, unless you realize

Jllock signals may become clogsed and fall

accidents as happened.
"I am not one of those who believe men

With reference to the most of the good
cltlsens In the good towns and good cities
of the Middle West. It may be assumed
that their acquaintance includes neither an
Aimi!i, nor a Eatwa Pigmy, a Tchuclchc
Patagonlan, nor a Cocopa Indian.
Fact is. it may bo assumed that few
have even heard of the great Ch(cf
Ndombe. who holds mighty court in the
Upper Kasai Valley. Central Africa, some
thing over a thourand of miles from the
mouth of the Congo.
And It is more than likely that not ono
in a thousand of us lias looked upon a
real Egyptian King, all bound round into
a mummy: neither have we seen majesty
in such rare form, nor have they even
viewed a sarcophagus dating back some
4.0M of rears before Christ.
As far a sacred cat, or an obsidian core,
or tho esoteric emblems of Aztec symbol
ism tlicy are quite beyond the scope of a
workaday life. Calendar stones and hiero
glyphic writings, telling of the thought
and researches of tho Ancients are not so
unfamiliar, having been pictured by mag
azines or newspapers, but seldom have the
genuine origlnala found their way into
this corner of the globe.
Of couroe. wo all know more or less
about tho "stone age," for have to not

The Sunday Republic? But truth to tell

of us much of an Idea of exactly tho im

casts of several famous pieces In the Cairo
museum, a statue of Chcphrcus, builder of
the second pyramid.
The tomb with its chapel will attract
more than passing notice. Egyptian rev
erence for the dead was carried to such
an extremo that offerings to the spirits
of deceased ancestry at one time serious
ly depleted the finances of the living. For
a man of rank and means an immenso
mausoleum was reared, constructed in
the Egyptian method of using astonishly
heavy stono blocks. Within this was tho
frailer" or chapel in which material offer
nga of food and incenso were regularly
placed. It came to that pass, however,
that for the sake of economy tho dear
departed were left to take their nourish
ment from painted edibles and tidbits.
Artists drew the designs upon the walls
o; the chapel. Such a gallerv of pic
torial sustenance will be seen in the chape!
of Rakapa at tho Fair.

relics of Egypt with others discovered In

similarity in hieroglyphics, in emblems

lowed that in the inscrutable distance of
the. past, a communication between the
continents existed: and that the Aztec and
the Egyptian civilizations had either :l
common root or were surprisingly inter
fused. In so far as the connection may be per
ceived by the. unscientific eye. It will be
dtstlcgulsliably by comparison of the
Egyptian anthropologic exhibit with that
coming from Mexico.

Another Important feature, which has both
a picturesque and an Instructive phasv-. Is
that In tho living exhibits humans will be
seen who have not profited by the onwnrd
march; aborigines that aro practically low
er In tho scale of development than -were
the Egyptians ami the Aztecs.
These strange peoples, abiding side by
side, but each following his native cus
toms and manner of living, will afford tn
the onlooker the basis for many a thought
as to tho reasons why tho white man. or
the Anglo-Saxon, has come to the front In
a few hundred years, while these others
have stood still or retrogaded in somo
thousands of years.
The Reverend S. P. Verner. president of
tlie Still man Institute of Tuskaloosa. Ala.,
now Is In the heart of Africa, whence he
will bring a group of the famous African
pigmies. Since the days of Roman con
quest In Africa, the existence of these
Batwas or pigmies has been known. But
they have been so elusive that until re
cently more of fantastic yarns were cur
rent than of reliable Information concern
ABOP.IGINES OF AFRICA.

though with their deadly poisoned darts

Down at the Straits of Magellan, at the
extreme southern point of the South
American Continent, abide the Patagouiun
Giants, who are physically opposite to the
Pigmies in tho human family. An ex
pedition, organized by Doctor Arthur
Kenton of Uallegas in Argentina, is now
among this people; and it is announced
that Chief Mulato. head man of the Te

the family groups together with their ap

and several toldos. which will be grouped
on the shores of Arrowhead Lake, adja
cent to the Pigmies and the "ethnological
display from the Philippines.
From another corner of tbe world, from
the extereme northern Island of Japan,
are coming several Ainus. or "hnlry men."'
They aro said to represent the remainder
of tho aborigines of tho Japanese Empire,
which has not participated In the prog
ress that has carried J a fan so far for
ward during tho last century.
The Ainu Is lighter In color than tho
rest of the Japs. His height averages an
Inch or two above five feet. . By ora
peculiar drift of the religious tendency he.
has come to worship the bear, an animal
numerous" upon the Island, In imitation
of this hcast they grow long beards and
cultivate hair upon their bodies.
Tattooing Is much practiced, the women
going so far as to tattoo the semblance of
beards nnd mustaches upon their faces.
The theory ot thus dlsfljrurlng themselves;
is said to le religious also; the women,
consider that they are greatly afflicted In,
having no hirsute adornments, and that,
by tho tattooing, the likeness to the bear
assures to them the virtues which the ani
mal is thought to possess.
But the bear, however, is not the re
cipient of all the favors that would ha
supposed. Its llfo is not sacred by any
means', as was the case among the Egyp
tians In the deification of cats or bulls.
Annually the Ainus hold a great bear-klH-lng.
at which the flesh is put aside for win
ter consumption. Having filled himself
with' bear meat, the Ainu thinks that h
is certain to flourish in this life and to
find favor in the sight of the gods.'
The three the Ainus. the Pigmies nn&
the Patagonlans will represent the lowet
aegree ot tinman development. But many
other strange races are included as typical
of stages ot aboriginal progress by study
of the white man's civilization.
Chief Ndombe himself will come, ruler
of the bright copper-colored tribe of ths
Congo region, the aristocracy of Central
Africa, and It is thought to be settled
that he will bring with him leading men
of the tribes under him the Baluba. tha
Blomba. the Henumfula. the Bashielele.
the Bachoko. tho Balundl. Ills own men
are called the Bakwampesh.
Then we will see the American Indian
in Ills lowest and his highest stages. Es
pecially noteworthy are: The Cocopas of
the lower Colorado, a tribe still cultivating
aboriginal crops bv aboriginal methods,
and who will demonstrate their agricul
tural nroficlencv mon the grounds; tho
Serl Indians, of Tiburon Island. North
western Mexico, probably the most gi
gantic men extant, and among whom cul
ture Is io'low that they are just entering;
tbe Stono Age.
Of United States tribes will be found one
or two Pueblo groups, occupying struc
tures modeled after portions of their na
tive pueblos; Plains tribes, with their tlpis.
shields and other insignia so arranged us
to expres social organization: basket
makers from Northern California and Cen
tral Arizona: blanket weaver-, potters,
skin dressers, bead worker", copper
shapers. arrow makers, and other native
artisans pursuing their craft according to
the ways of their ancestors in pre-Colum-
