ART OF PRIMITIVE MEN.
two Totally Distinct Types Are Found
Among Uncnltured Races.
Whoever has examined the handicraft
of savage peoples knows well that from
a very early age two totally distinct
types of art arise spontaneously among
uncultured races. One is imitative, the
other decorative. Paleolithic men—for
example, the cave dwellers of prehistoric
Europe before the glacial epoch—had an
art of their own of a purely imitative
and pictorial character. They repre
sented on fragments of bone and mam
moth ivory realistic scenes of their own
hunting existence.
Here, a naked and hairy brave, flint
spear in hand, stalks wild horses undis
mayed in the grassy plain; there, a cou
ple of reindeer engaged in a desperate
fight with their antlers hard locked in
deadly embrace; yonder, again, a mam
moth charges unwieldly with wide open
mouth, or a snake glides unseen beneath
the shoeless feet of an unsuspecting sav
age. All their rude works of art repro
duce living objects, and tell, in their
naive way, a distinct story. They are
pictorial records of things done, things
seen, things suffered.
Paleolithic men were essentially
draughtsmen, not decorators. But their
neolithic successors, of a totally different
race—the herdsmen who supplanted
them in post glacial Europe—had an art
of an entirely different type, purely and
solely decorative. Instead of making
pictures they drew concentric circles
and ornamental curves on their boats
and dwellings; they adorned their weap
ons and their implements with knobs
and nicks, with crosses and bosses; they
wrought beautiful patterns in metal
work as soon as ever they advanced to
the bronze using stage, and they de
signed brooches and bracelets of ex
quisite elegance, but they seldom intro
duced into their craft any living object;
they imitated nothing, and they never
in any way told a pictorial story.
Now these two types of art —the essen
tially imitative or pictorial and the es
sentially decorative or aesthetic—persist
throughout in various human races, and
often remain as entirely distinct as in
the typical instances here quoted. The
great aim of the one is to narrate a fact;
the great aim of the other is to produce
a beautiful object. The first is to speak
historical, the second ornamental.
In developed forms you get the ex
treme case of the one in the galleries at
Versailles; you get the extreme case of
the other in the Alhambra at Granada.
The modern Esquimau and the modern
Bushman resemble tho ancient cave
dwellers in their love of purely pictorial
or story telling art; a man in a kayak
harpooning a whale; a man with an
assegai spearing a springbok; these are
the subjects that engage—l will not say
their pencils — but their sharp flint
knives or their lumps of red ocher.
On the other hand, most central Af
rican races have no imitative skill. They
draw figures and animals ill or not at all,
but they produce decorative pottery and
other ornamental objects which would
excite attention at Versailles, and be
well placed at the arts and crafts in the
new gallery. Everywhere racial taste
and racial faculty tend most in the one
or the other direction. A tribe, a horde,
a nation, is pictorial, or else it is deco
rative. Rarely or never is it both alike
in an equal degree of native excellence.
—Fortnightly Review.
An Artist Fooled.
Irving Montagu writes in "Wander
ings of a War Artistr" "One evening 1
met two very fascinating Spanish girls
in a quiet quarter-of Irun, one of whom,
being a blonde, was enveloped in a white
mantilla. It being customary on meet
ing a white mantilla to extend her some
what similar homage to that paid to
royalty, I raised my hat, and stepped on
one side to allow the couple to pass,
when, in doing so, I saw to my horror,
by the light of the moon, that they were
followed closely by a grim and grotesque
reptile, half lizard, half frog, which
■with a series of spasmodic bounds, was
making directly for their heels. Oh, the
horrid beast, the indescribable mon
strosity! To rush forward and trample
on the uncanny thing was the work of a
moment.
"I was dumfounded; my exploit of
heroism, far from inducing the gratitude
I expected, was immediately followed by
rears of laughter, the merry ring of
which reverberated on the still night
air. 'Unconscionable fool' does not ex
press the littleness I felt as I was sub
jected to the ridicule of those wily dam
sels, and if a man is capable of that be
coming peculiarity, I must have blushed
scarlet. I had trodden on El drap—a
piece of cloth cut into the semblance of
some monstrous lizard, and attached by
a thread to the skirt of the maiden, so
that, by certain dexterous movements
and hitches it could be made to leap
after her as she hurried along. It was
the Basque equivalent for the old English
jokes practiced on the Ist of April."
Great Expectations.
Miss Lawson—Tom Lackland will be

Mr. D'Argent—Why? He hasn't any

Miss Lawson—Yes, but he'll be worth
a million soon. His uncle died yester

tleman never liked Tom.
Miss Lawson—He didn't. That's just
it. He left the whole of his fortune to
found a free library.—Kate Field's

A Woman with Fire Pockets.
A young man came up town to his
home and dinner the other afternoon in
a Broadway car, and just about Tenth
street, where the big shops begin, the
overloaded team halted to take in one
more passenger. She was a tall, slim,
pretty girl, dressed in a brown gown, and
the young man noticed her at once—
first, because her face was exceedingly
charming, aud second, because she
carried nothing in her hands. Not even
the tiniest purse or the flattest card case,
he swears.
On earefwl cross examination he could
not tell how her gtwvn was made or what
shape of hat she wore. But this much he
does know, that after she got on she
actually did push her way well up in the
car, in exact obedience to the conduct
or's humble suggestion, and she also lift
ed up one of the empty hands, gloved in
a heavy three buttoned, stitched red dog
skin, and held so firmly to the strap that
she did not lose her footing when the car
turned a curve.
Yet more remarkable, when the long |
suffering conductor came collecting, she
calmly thrust her free hand into the folds
of her frock and into an invisible pocket,
set just about where such convenient re
ceptacles are put in a man's trousers.
This was on the front of the right hand
hip. Apparently not feeling the right
change there, she brought down the other
hand, and while the young man gaped
with amazement, she ran it into another
deep invisible pocket on the left hip. He
swears he recognized the rattle of keys
and a knife, and when the hand reap
peared it was full of small change. The
conductor satisfied, she resumed her
strap and looked calmly over the young
man's head till another woman got in
who recognized the young lady, and much
chattering followed till the second wom
an wanted to know the time.
Then he almost lost his balance watch
ing the first young woman unbutton her
loose boxcoat to reveal a white shirt
front and high buttoned waistcoat, in
the front of which dangled a watch
chain. Into a side pocket went the hand,
out came an openfaced watch, then from
an inside breast pocket was drawn a
little flat red memorandum book, and
bracing herself the owner jotted down
some important address given by the first
woman, buttoned herself up snugly, drew
a dainty silk handkerchief from some
where under the tail of her coat, touched
her dear little nose, and signaling to the
conductor swung off with all the easy
nonchalance of a woman hardened to
the convenience of five pockets and a
coat tail handkerchief bag.—New York
Letter.
Atchison's Maids and Matrons.
A'girl in Atchison has a peculiar way
of attracting attention to herself. She
scallops her finger nails, and leaves them
that way.
An Atchison girl recently refused to
marry a man, saying that she thought
too much of him; she believed she was
certain to think less of him if she mar
ried him.
An Atchison woman has the fad of
naming her cats, dogs and chickens for
her friends. When her neighbors hear
her abusing Mrs. Smith they know it is
not her friend she is abusing, but the
cat, which has probably been stealing
cream.
An Atchison woman, who used to
worry herself sick and thin with jeal
ousy, has settled down to a common
sense view of men, and is now plump
and full of health. As a result her
formerly frisky husband has become
very devoted and dutiful.
An Atchison woman, who recently in
terviewed twelve married women on tlie
subject, finds that four married to es
cape being old maids, two married for a
home, five married because some other
woman wanted their husbands, and one
married because she really thought so
much of her husband that she could not
help herself.—Atchison Globe.
Moving Made Easy.
When madam gets good and ready to
move she notifies the moving bureau
that on Wednesday she wishes her goods
and chattels removed from 110 Washing
ton avenue to 9 Clinton Park place, and
that said articles are valued at $3,000.
On the appointed day the family break
fast as usual, let the fire go out in the
fireplace and cook stove, and, putting on
their jewelry, go out to luncheon. Then
they go to the matinee. Later they find
their way to the new flat at 9 Clinton
Park place, to be greeted by the familiar
lares and penates, which have been
transferred in their entirety to the new
quarters.
Of course some rearrangements are
necessary. Tidies must be pinned on
squarely instead of cornerwise, pictures
must be hung by two wires instead of.
one, and the prayer rug must be placed
in front of an east window instead of be
tween the folding doors. But these things
are trifling. And madam and family go
to bed with a rainbow in their souls, for
all the moving has been accompUshed
successfully without work, worry or
pneumonia. And all this for twenty-five
dollars.—New York Cor. Philadelphia
Inquirer.
A Brave Woman,
One is never too old to give up a bad
habit. A lady in Islesboro, eighty-eight
years old, who had used tobacco all her
life, has discarded the weed. She hasn't
given up work, though, as she makes it
a rule to knit a dipnet every day besides
doing her ofcher work.—Lewiston Jour
nal.

Long Branch, N. J., wiH leave this port

about San Diego.—San Diego Union.
