There appear! to be more thiiu one case of river worship, and there ure sup posed to 1)3 numerous cases of the kind in Africa. In tho Aehantee country there is the Chamascian river, or Rio San Juan, called by the negroes Bossum pra, which they worship as a god, as tbe word Bossuni signifies. In the west of onr own country tbe Dakotas are said to worship a god of the waters under the name ct Unktahe. There is the Well known worship of the holy (ranges in India in $Hi form of Ganga, a god dess. Of tho great rivers nf India none can compare in sanctity with the Ganges or Mother Ganga, as she i 8 affec tionately called by devout Hindoos. From her source in tho Himalayas to her month in tho bay of Bengal, every foot of her course is holy ground, and many of the other sacred rivers of India borrow their sanctity from a supposed underground connection with her wa ters. Ganga herself ia described as the daughter of the Himalayas, who is per suaded after infinite solicitation to shed her purifying stream upon the earth. At the present day, tho six years' pilgrimage from the source to the mouth and back again is performed by many. To batho in the Ganges, espe cially at great stated festivals, will wash away the stain of 6in, and those who have thus purified themselves carry back bottles of tho sacred water to their less favored relatives. To exclaim '"Ganga! Ganga!" nt tho dietiuu-e of 100 leagues will atono for sins com mitted during three previous liv a. In British courts of justice in Indiu, the water of the Gauges is used for admin istering on,lis to Hindoos. The tribes of Nc ilgherry hills worship rivers un der tho name of Gangamma. In fact, tho divinity of water is recognized b3' all the peoples of India.—Brooklyn Eagle. .Shut Tour Mouth. "Shut Your Month" is the cuivous titlo of a ouriona little book written In a hand that looks liko copper plate, by tho Indian traveler ami painter. George Catlin. In the printed text it many years ago bad a largo circulation iv England, but is long since out of print. This mamigrajih copy is unique. The writer, when among tho Indians, was impressed by their knowledge of tbe laws of health und medical skill. This was long before civilization had intro duced any of its practices. This little hook is hi.-it'll on some of theso observ ances which he, Introduced and practiced in his own family. Indian children, he cays, from tbeir ten direst years are more carefully trained in certain respects by their mothers than the children of the most civilized peoples. The moment the youngest baby ceases nursing its lips are closed by its mother. If the baby does not keep them closed, she uses mechan ical moans rigidly and even cruelly. When tlm baby is put to sleep, it is Strapped onto a board, ita head slight ly railed and its chin lowered, which tends to keep the mouth shut. Tbe re sult is that when the teeth nre form ing and making their fir«t appearan.ro they meet and continually feel one another. Thus they take their relative positions and that healthful and pleas ing regularity that gives to the Ameri can Indian, as a race, the most manly and beautiful mouths in the world. — New York Evening Sun.
