DID NOT PLAY "TESSIE." f ?
Junkins' Band, of Fairmont. Has a
Correction to Make.
It was erroneously stated in the "i"
News Tuesday that Junkins' band
11 1 CIJI lUWMt Kiel tliaucu LUC uc?opaper
ofiices and played "'Hiawatha" sc
and "Tessie." The members of the Si
band are justly indignant. Time was
when it could spin olf the syncopated ':i
"Hiawatha" in a manner that would er
have made Col. Wadsworth Longfellow
open wine. Time was when it "r
rendered "Tessie" in a manner that
would bring tears of appreciation to th
the eyes of the most rabid Wagnerite, Vi
or the most dithyrambic Chopinist. ?n
But that's all gone by. Junkins' band el<
has grace enough to know when a wt
thing's frazzled, when the edge has Sv
been wopn off. and when it's time to
saw off. So it did not play "Kiawa- ve
tha," nor did it trill the trilletites of in;
"Tessie." ri'1
Alas! it was a Wheeling band, and Mi
this correction is promptly yet some- th<
what dolefully made. P!1
The Junkins band is one of the best 1
at the convention, and can put out !'li
anything on dots and bars.?Wheeling (lr:

In addition to the public apology
so gracefully made by the News, Mr.
Ogden wrote the following letter to
Mr. Junkins:

SAND PAINTINGS.
i'lctiirow Thai Arc t:Hcd In Xavajo
Intlisn
To paint ?i picture in ordinary. ollss or
water coioi's, with a model to copy, is
~ a difficult task enough to suit most
people, but to paint g picture by drop?
ping pi lie lies, of colored earth or sand
011 a smooth ground surface and to
3 point it from memory exactly as some
other artist painted it a year or more
_ ago appears even more dllOcuit. Sueli.
however, is the process, by which some
tribes of American Indians reprod uce
*y from time to time pictures that are
- used in certain aboriginal ceremonies,
and that are believed to be exactly
similar to original drawings that date
j back an unknown number of generations.
h In the Pea body museum at Harvard
2 university there Is a colored model of
one of these paintings that a member
of the museum staff had the good
structlon,. the picture being used In
- a ceremony performed to cure- the illness
of two members of a small Navajo
village. It represents the four rain
gods?one for each of the cardinal
points of the compass?who are shown
coming from a southern ciotid, blue In
. color, which rises in turn from a black,
white and yellow line symbolizing tbe
north, cast and west. The god of the
north wind Is black, of the south wind
blue, of the west wind yellow and of
the east wind white, arid each carries
a highly decorated tobacco pouch, containing
also a ray of the sun, with
which he is supposed to light his pipe.
The combination of tbe sun with the
rain, which the Indmu imagination
pictured the gods as sending, is symbolized
by rainbow colors, red and blue,
. decorating the tobacco bags. Ftom tbe
left band of eacli figure bangs a water
bottle, n natural emblem of bis office,
wlille around tbe nortb, west and
south sides of the picture is the rainbow,
personilled by a goddess.
Tbe sand picture, which exists from
year to year oply In the memory of
the medicine man, or shaman, who directs
the making of it, is "drawn" on
the floor of a sacred hut especially constructed
with its doorway carefully
facing the east, from which direction
the Indians believe no evil spirit need
be expected. The medicine man has as
his advisers and memory assistants
several of the men of the tribe who
have participated in many a former
ceremony of the kind. The actual
"painters" are four young men of the
tribe, who first lay out a smooth foundation
elf brown sand and then, starting
in the middle, move outward in either
direction as the center of the design
is finished. Each puintcr takes a
pinch of sand of the necessary color
and drops It in the proper place by
rubbing-it slowly between thumb and
forefinger. In this way, line by line,
the pictnre comes slowly into being
until at the end of several hours a finished
"painting" about 0 by 13 feet iu
size has been executed to the satisfaction
of the chief medicine man and his
experienced advisers.
Explosion at Oyster Bay.
OYSTER BAY, July 14.?A tremendous
explosion in the direction of Sagamore
Hill shortly, before midnight ,
last night scared Oyster Bay out of
bed and sent Secretary I.oeh and the .
Secret Service men not on duty at ,
the President's house, scurrying to j
learn what had happened. ;
Investigation showed that the ex- (
plosion was aboard the gasoline
launch Aeolus, which was lying off
Centre Island.

Marion county is as well pleased c
over the nomination of Thos. C. Miller ,
as that of Charles W. Swisher, but r;
the latter's Is the sweeter because oi a
the effort that was made on the part r
of a few prominent gentlemen from ^
the beginning to the end of the con- t(
vention to thwart his aspirations and r
who thought they had him "buried a
face downward." g
