DO ESKIMOS KNOW ENOUGH?
Experts Widely Differ on Native
Knovrledae of Their Own
Who will decide when experts disagree
on the ability of Eskimos to draw a map
of their own country, or posses sufficient
knowledge of compass points to avoid gotng
astray T ,
Apropos the Eskimo? affidavits In.' the
polar controversy: a correspondent .of the
Boston Transcript ' writes:
When Sir John Ross on his second voyage
wintered ln Felix harbor, latitude 69 de
grees 58 minutes, longitude' 92 degrees 1
minute west, he was visited by a party
of Eskimos and he describes their knowl
edge of charts and geography on page 34,
London edition of 1835: "As they seemed
now to be unusually communicative, the
chart was produced: when it appeared that
they were acquainted with every place be
tween Igloolk and Repulse buy, or with
their names at least, and - with those of
some of the inhabitants. When Ackoolea
was mentioned and pointed out In tha
chart they immediately recognised their
own position and that of tha ship.
"One of them, Tulluahlu, then took the
pencil and drew the line by which they
came, afterwards making spots 'on It, and
counting their fingers to show that they
had slept only nine times on the journey.
Tlagashu then drew a line of coast round
which we could sail ln.tbe autumn; this
being in a westerly direction, and Includ
ing several capes, bays and rivers; while,
off it, were drawn several islands, in one
of which he placed a lake; during which
demonstration he further pointed out where
salmon and other fish abounded. After
this his draught of the coast took a norttir
erly direction, considerably beyond i out
present position and not less to the west
ward of It; while his estimate ot the dis
tance was two days; adding that here also
there were rivers running into tha sea.
The first man then resumed tha pencil
and drew several large lakes In that part
of the country where we were now fixed;
further noting places wehera wi should
find natives, and drawing a route by which
Mail Order Houses
.' A mail order house in Chicago or
jBoinc other city may be able to sell you
anything from a paper of pins to a
house and lot, simply by referring you
to their catalogues, but they, can't sell
you a good watch that way. Watches
are very delicate machines that may be
)ut out of order, in a dozen ways after
eaving the factory. A jeweler knows
how to put the watch into shape, and he
won't sell one without doing it. Mail
order houses do not w ant to bother with
that, and, as a matter of fact, they can
not if they would. Waltham Watches
are the best in the world, but whether
you buy a Waltham or some other kind,
go to a jeweler, tell him what you want,
and he will sell you a watch in good
running order. Do not make the mis
take of trying to buy by mail from any
catalogue; you won't know what you
are getting if you do.

always ask your jeweler for a Waltham

They, however, told us that one of their
party , was a much better geographer than
themselves, and promised that wa should
sea him. January 12. 1830. Tha promised
hydrographer Ikmalllk came-to us .this
morning, accompanied by Tlagashu, . and
they were taken Into tha cabin.
Borne paper containing a sketch of the
ls,nd already known between Repulse bay
and Prince Regent's inlet waa now laid
before them, with tha names of the differ
ent places marked; these were at once reo
ognlzad; and Ikmalllk then taking tha pen
cil' prooeeded to prolong tha sketch from
Akullea, following very nearly for a very
considerable space tha Una already traced
by Tulluahlu. After this, ha prolonged it
still further westward, instead of turning
to the north as tha latter had done; then
continuing it to tha northwest, in a direc
tion more favorable to our views. He did
not, however, insert tha islands; nor could
we discover how many days It wcti esti
mated from tha end of his chart to Akullee,
near Repulse bay; but he drew Wager bay
and its river very correctly, making also
several other rivers. He further gave us
to understand that our ship could sail that
way till the autumn; and with thla infor
mation wa were obliged, for tha present, to
be content." ...
Tha chart of tha Qulph of Boothia, drawn
by tha natives, la reproduced in a full-page
engraving from the "original in tha poa
session of Captain Ross," together with a
sketch drawn by Captain Rosa of the. two
Eskimos drawing the chart in tha presence
of three. English officers. !
Dr. Thomas S. Dedrlck, who accompanied
one of tha Peary expeditions, relates this
Instance of Eskimo Intelligence:
"On page 148 ln Mr. Peary's book 'Near
est the ' Pole,' ha details how that, upon
returning from tha north,, ha knew by his
longitude observations that ha had been
driven eastward and cama down upon the
northwest coaat of Greenland. Upon
reaching land he saw a frean sledge trail
of three dogs with irregular steps. Ha aent
his Eskimos eastward on the trail to find
out what it meant. The next day they re
turned with Clarke and nls three Eski
mos." He says: "They, like us, had been driv
en eastward and had come down upon the
Greenland coaat and Clarke's - Eskimos
(three), like mine (six), possessed .with a
craxy Idea that they had drifted westward
and were coming down the 'back side of
Grand Land,' as they expressed it, had
insisted on turning east and were going
directly away from the ship."
They were going to destruction, and the
book further says that they were exhausted
and could have lived not many days. They
would .have gone to destruction had they
been strong and had an abundance of food,
and so would Mr. Peary If he had de
pended on his sense of direction Instead of
his Instruments. Now, If Mr. Peary's six
Eskimos and Mr. Clarke's tnrea Eskimos
after a journey of 240 miles out on the sea
Ice had at that time been asked by any
rival of Mr. Peary to draw a map showing
where Mr. Peary had been, they would
have drawn a line from tha eighty-seventh
parallel down to the northwest coaat ot
Grant Land Instead of to the northwest
coast of Greenland about 400 miles differ
ence between these two points.

Tourist In Northern
According to Harry Lauder there are peo
ple ln Scotland besides whom tha roan who
still votes for Andrew Jackson is as a little
child. Imagine folk of the present year and
generation being still loyal to the long-departed
Stuarts, and still hoping to sea them
on the British throne and yet Harry ran
across some of them only last summer.
The comedian says that he spent a
ooupla of weeks exploring the old glens
and hills of northern Scotland, and pene
trated Into regions where tourists were
never aeen before. At last, cooped ln a lit
tle dell called Glen Larchle, he found a
little knot of Highlanders, who paid their
taxes with reluctance, growled and glow
ered at the name of the king, and asked
Harry If he had any news from the "king
across the water." Mr. Lauder, who, like
all Scots, knows well that "the king across
the water" Is the Highland term for a
Stuart, explained that there was nothing
doing In the line of restoration, but the
people of Glen Larchle wouldn't have It ao.
"Mon, mon," said one old patriarch of
the glen, "ye are prejudiced. It canna be
lang noon before the king shall come ta
his aln, and a' true Highlander shall sing
doon wl' the Sassenaoh. And then, mon,
they wha hae been loyal and true shall
come to guld reward, and they wha has
been traitors a' these years shall ken the
vengeance o' Culloden!" And tha old gen
tleman tapped tha scabbard of a long
rusted broadsword with such emphasis that
Harry waa glad to escape and make his
way hurrlendly out of Glen Larchle, where
tha folk still love a Stuart king. New Jork

TURNING, ON LIGHT IN JAPAN
Wktt n Hollander by Birth, an Amer
ican by Education, Did for
The most remarkable and -most rapid de
velopment ln the Christianity and In the
civilisation of Japanv according to Presi
dent Soberer of Newberry college, who for
five years was a profesaor in the college at
Saga, ' was due to Guldo Verback, bom in
Holland ln 1830, educated ln America, who
became a clergyman fUJad with missionary
ardor. In 186 Commodore . Perry opened
Japan to the world. . Verbeck went there
five years later. Christianity oould not be
preached. He carried on a subtle "propa
ganda. In U6i, Murata, a Japanese noble
man, found a New Testament floating In
the bay at Nagasaki. He oould not read It,
but found one who translated some of it
Into Japanese. He was profoundly im
pressed with the teachings ot the book.
Later he obtained a Chinese testament.
This he could read. HeT became a Chris
tian, the only Japanese Christian ln mora
than two centuries.
Early in his career In the Islands Verbeck
met Murata, and they worked together
quietly and effectively. Verbeck waa a
man of remarkable acquirements and great
Intelligence. He was a born diplomat His
talents were recognized by tha brown
statesmen- with whom he came In contact.
He was Informed in history, politics, eco
nomics. He became an Intimate adviser of
the government He bore no title and never
sought to be ln the limelight Verbeck In
spired the Japanese with a keen desire to
know by personal contaot at first hand
what was going on ln the great world from
which they had so long secluded them
selves. He prompted the Japanese em
bassy to America and to Europe. That waa
ln 1872. This . was the real beginning of
the wonderful development of Japan. One
special Jesuit of VerbecK's influence was
the brushing away of all edicts against the
propagation of Christianity.
He was the encourager, the promoter of
the revolution in knowledge, the eagerness
that seised the nation to acquaint Itself
witn political, military ana naval science
with surgery, and medicine as they were
known ln Europe and America. Ha trans
lated many books which gave to the Jap
anese light on these matters of the civil
ised world. Tet the name of Verbeck, even
in Japan, is known to comparatively few.
Though a Hollander by birth, he was an
American by education and this country '
may well claim the credit for showing
Japan the road to the great place it occu
plea today among tha nations of the earth,
first through Commodore Perry, who
opened Its sealed gates to 'commerce, and
next through Verbeck, who opened the eyes
of Its understanding to the advantages of
Christianity and civilisation. Indianapolis
