WILL NOT FORGET HIS WORK From Kansas to Arctic John Henry Kilbuck Carried the Gospel, Ing Lives and Winning Love of Natives. Juneav.—There Is gloom among the natives in Alaska today. From Point Barrow—the farthest north—to Metlakatla and Juneau In the south; from the headwaters of the Kuskokwim and Yukon down to the sea, is traveling forth the word that “Kilbuck is dead.” Everywhere the news permeates, there follows sad ness. Grown men and women among the Eskimos and Indians grieve like children. All because the “most loved man beyond 54-40” is no more. For more than iour decades John Hanry Kilbuck, Muncie Indian of the old Delaware nation that roamed over Pennsylvania before the days of Washington and William Penn, had be/?* intimately associated with the Kllnklts and Takus of southeastern Alaska, or the Eskimos and breed tribes around Point Barrow. With his pale-face wife he was guardian, counselor, spiritual guide and friend. Will Not Forget Him. But the country which John Kilbuck played such an Important part Ln de veloping will not forget him. The thousands of reindeer that roam the tundras under the watchful eye of their native shepherds, will forever remind the natives of him. It was Kilbuck who, at the request of the United States government. Introduced reindeer prorogation In Alaska, and by so doing he banished the specter of famine that periodically wiped out entire tribes when the hard times came and the winters closed In before they were prepared. Akjak and Bethel, both founded by the Moravian missionary, some day may grow into flourishing cities when Alaska comes Into its own. And they vjll cherish his memory. Doings of missionaries, as a rule, make rather tame reading. But the activities of* John Kilbuck and his wife were not confined to strictly spir itual things. Four different times did the Kil bucks go “below” with the intention of spending their declining years in the States. And four times they went back. The call was Irresistible. The last time—it was to have been different. With all the best Intentions, accentuated by memories of past fail ures to keep good resolutions —the pioneer torchbearers of civilization re solved to spend their declln’ - years near the homes of their forefathers— on the Chippewa Indian reservation down in Kansas. Deep down in their hearts, however, they had a “hunch” that the North would win. It always had. So the North Won Again. In their little white and green cot tage, nestling in the Chippewa hills and overlooking the placid Marais des Cygnes river in eastern Kansas the Kilbucks were waiting. Waiting for word that the break-up in the Yukon and Kaskokwira was about to begin. They had reached their decision. “They need us. The influenza has reached Alaska. If it gets Into the Interior before we do nobody knows what will happen. Thousands may perish. Their deer, now numbering thousands, will be cast adrift over the Sun Yat Sen Welcomed at Kweilin W/w/ ■ x t i pF.

The photograph shows Dr. Sun being welcomed Dy the citizens of Kweilin after his army took possession of that Mty. tundras—prey to wolves and wild dogs and equally unscrupulous ‘breeds.’ ” With the first word of the thaw they took a stehmer out of Seattle. They arrived none too soon. Influ enza already was taking its toll. But they did get there in time to save hundreds. The Kilbucks took up their work where they had left off upon their de parture for the States. They were just whipping things Into shape and getting comfortably settled for the last chapter of their life’s book when pneumonia and typhoid, diseases from which they had saved thousands of Uncle Sam’s little Indian wards, struck home. In three days Kilbuck was dead. It was back in I*Bs that John Kli buck and his white wife arrived in Alaska. He had just graduated from the Moravian Missionary school at Nazareth, Pa., where he had been sent by a Christian worker among the Kansas Indians. It took years to gain the confidence of the Alaska natives, but patience and kindness finally won and now no name is better known or more beloved among the Alaska Indians or Eskimos than Kilbuck. Gets Recipes of Cannibals English Woman Novelist Learns Ways of New Guinea Epicures During Long Sojourn. THEIR MANNERS ARE PRAISED Says Hypnotism Prevails Among Na tives to An Extent Appearing In credible —Position of Women Is Deplorable. London.—Miss Beatrice Grimshaw, the well known novelist, who has been 15 years In the South Sea Islands, has returned from New Guinea. As an indication of the wilderness and the unknown character of the vast tracts of territory comprising that country she mentioned that quite recently the missionaries, with the aid of airplanes, had discovered a valley containing 10,- 000 people whose existence had not even be»n suspected. They were found to be living at an altitude where it was imagined that human life could not endure. She had a wonderful sto ry to tell of her experiences. To a representative of the Evening Standard she said: “New Guinea is one of the most noteworthy countries in the world, and a great deal of it has never been explored by white people. Within a certain distance the government has done a great deal, but there are stretches in which cannibal tribes live to themselves. Many, however, are induced to work on the plantations, and the cannibals are certainly the fin est native workers, because of their physical development and their de meanor. But cannibalism flourishes, and the people who practice It do not regard it as wrong. In the interior cannibals live to themselves, and It is only when they come under British jurisdiction that their cannibalistic tendencies are checked. One gets so accustomed to this question of canni balism that It is accepted almost as a AUTOMATIC LIGHTHOUSE II Jr T; f :• • I H /J New automatic lighthouse recently completed at Barry Holmes Gower, England.

When the actinic light value reaches a certain degree It lights itself, and when the daylight reaches a corresponding degree, it ex tinguishes itself. matter of course. I know the cookery recipes now as to the best methods of preparing human food. Huge Stove Oven Used. “In one part of the country there Is a stone oven six feet long dug Into a side of a hill for the purpose of dealing with the victims. The inhab itants of one village may attack an other. The prisoners are tortured ter ribly, and then eaten. One method Is to take out their eyes and then roast the body alive in the traditional three legged caldron. The cannibals break the bones and legs of their victims be forehand sometimes, and then let the body lie In a running stream, which method, thejJ believe, makes the meat more tender. The odd feature of It all Is that the most determined canni bals are extremely well-mannered, and In all other respects are the best work ers you can find. As to whether can nibalism springs from the love of hu man flesn or Is merely a ritual one cannot say. I think the cannibals real ly like the human flesh. But you can not get them to talk about it. “Sorcery has a remarkable hold on the people in this country, and the occult powers that are displayed can only be regarded by white people as amusing. The natives even have a sorcerers’ university where natives are taught for a period of two years. Sorcerers can carry poisonous and dangerous snakes in their hair, ami can train them to bite people, leaving them loose In a house, and it is even possible, it is said, to make a snake bite a particular person. Equally ex traordinary are the powers possessed by conjurors. “I believe these natives understand hypnotism from end to end. They do table-turning with a sort of alligator shaped image. They ask questions of spirits, and see blue lights. This hap pens in the Gulf country. The power of hypnotism is used to an extent that seems barely credible, but there is to my mind, that certain natives are believed to hypnotize whole audiences, and they do it in one Instance by means of a dance of the most peculiar character. I have seen-this dance, and the extraordinary effect of it. The performer apparently dominates the whole of the room by his actions. The effect of the dancing Is that hypnosis on a massed scale like this can be induced In the wlerdest possible way. “Several people have tried to Inves tigate the meaning of the mind, but they have not succeeded. It Is quite obvious that the natives are saturated In hypnotism as a result of the prac tice of many centuries, which enables them to do all sorts of things that to us are always inexplicable. I do not admire spiritualism or hypnotism, and I am rather glad to find that it has Its roots among savages. “The position of women Is deplor able. They are In effect slaves. Mar riage Is by purchase, and It Is usually dependent on the number of pigs that can be offered by the bridegroom to the bride’s parents. The pig, in fact. Is thought to be of very much more value than the wife.’’ Tree That Grew Apples Now Produces Cherries » A tree that produced apples » Inst year and Is filled with cher- * ries this year, is the unusual * sight on the William Bagley > farm, near Onancock, Dei.
