As they left the vicinity a rowboat pulled

Uncivilised Natives of Wild Regions Delight in Weird Creations .
By GARRETT F. 8ERYISS.
Whoever walks thoughtfully throuu'i
the hall of the American Museum ef Na
tural History that are devoted to the ex
hibitions of the life, pevsnns dwellings,
occupations, apparel, customs, ceremonies,
wcrn. utensils, ornaments, toys and
fetiche of the former red-eklnned owners
of this continent will gain an Insight Into
the minds and ways of savage that
hardly any amount of reading could give
so well, and that will place before his
ryes, almost as vividly aa In a motion
picture, the thrilling scenes by which
our forefather wera surrounded when
they were subduing a new world.
Among the things there shown nothing
Is more curious than the strange mask
that were used by various tribes In their
religious and other ceremonies. The Im
agination of the red man rioted In the
Invention of these grotesque ohjorta, and
yet Iho play of fancy exhibited in them
was not purely raprlrlnus, but was di
rected according to certain fixed notions
and beliefs concerning the gods, demons.
Imps and .other superhuman powers and
souls supposed to watch over and Inter
fere with the lives of human being.
The tendency to represent the human
race under extraordinary disguises and
in nondescript forms and to Imagine
supernatural powers to be concealed be
hind such mask la common to savage
all over the world. Among civilised peo
ple It show itself, without the supersti
tious element In maaquerades, carnival
and conventional symbol. But even elv.
Illsed or partially civilised people, in
some eases, have not been free from the
superstitious practices connected with the
use of masks. When Dr. Sohltemenn un
covered the so-called "royal graves" at
Mycenae, which he supposed to contain
the bodies of Agamemnon and his com
panions, slain aXter their return from
the siege of Troy, he found. In some of
the gravel, masks of pure gold, fitted or
pressed over the faces of the skeletons,
snd although these masks are though to
have been Intended for portraits of the
persons on whose faces they rested, yet
there can be little doubt that they had a
ceremonial meaning, just as have the
various objects that nearly all primitive
peoplea deposit in grave. Their grotesque
appearance may be due ' to the luck
of skill of the makers and to the fact that
the graves caved in centuries ago, flat
tening out all their contents.
The Iroquois Indians, the anginal "Five
Nations" of Central New Tork, had
most popular Institution called the ''Falsa
Face Band," consisting of certain mem
bers of the tribe who wore for ceremonial
purposes grotesque wak. Imitating the
Imagined faces of evil demons, who were
believed to Inhabit the earth, and to be
bodiless, except thst they possessed
hideous faces of the human type.
Whether in visions or y pure force of
fancy the Indiana had acquired definite
Idea concerning the ajpect ' of these
demon faeea, and their typical forma were
closely mimicked In the mask- It was
believed that the maskers, by their mum
meries, were able to counteract, er reader
Innocuous, the evil Influence of tit de
mon. The power to heal the sick was
also ascribed to the maskers. In which
case they reversed the magic of the
"false faces," as the demons were catlrd.
One of these masks, which may be
seen in the museum, has a etirlou story
connected with it that shows the reach
of the Indian imagination. The face of
the - mask 1ia one side singularly distorted.-
This was done m strict Imitation
of the fancied face of the particular
demon whose evil practices It was In-

tended to render Innocuous. According to
the legend, this demon, one day met thn
god liawenlyn examining the world which
ha had made, whereupon the demon de
manded of the god what h was doing on

middle of a valley and the indignant god,
to show his power, and at the same time
punish - the arrogant "fslae-face," com
manded the hill on each side to approach

manently squeexed out of shape. Then
llawanlyo gave permission to the "false
faces'' to remain on the earth on condi
tion that they would not hsrm the chil

there. Thry promised, but proved them
selves false-faces Indeed. ,

gods, of which the sun I the head and
chief, are represented by masks of fixed
shapes and color, worn by chosen per

th.at they and the masks had been made
as horrible or terrible as possible, in
