By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
, One of the most curious facts irt
the history of superstitions about the
stars and planets is the world-wide
recognition of Mars as the "god of
war.; For no plausible reason ex
cept for his persistent red color, the
planet that circles between the earth
and Jupiter has everywhere and in all
times been regarded! as typifying
strife and bloodshed. Even the as
tronomical symbol for Mars, a circle
with an arrow emerging from it, has
been supposed to have, originated
from the combination of the figures
of a shield and an arrow.
One of the latest indications of the
universality of the choice of Mars as
the representative in the heavens of
the spirit of war is shojyn in the re
searches ' of Messrs. Wissler and
Spinden of the American Museum of
Natural History concerning the Paw-
itee Indian's. .;'.

In the museum, among many other
interesting specimens shedding light
on Indian history and customs, are a
Eair of thongs consisting of buffalo
ide, painted red, and adorned with
beads and rattles formed from small
deer hoofs, which are said to be the
last that were made by the Pawnee
Indians for use in the sacrifice of a
captive maiden to the war-star.'
When 'these ceremonies were per
formed the Pawnees lived in -Nebraska;
They have since been'' re
moved to Oklahoma.
Messrs. Wissler and Spinden be
lieve that the ceremonies were de
rived from the Aztecs of Mexico, and,
as far as known, they were not prac
ticed by any other Indian tribes living
within the territory now embraced
by the United States, except, possi
bly, in New Mexico and Arizona. The
plan was to send out war parties to
capture a maiden from another tribe.
She was carefully guarded, but
treated in other respects as a god

This occurred when the war-star
was tied to a trame of poles and
cross-pieces, her hair being bound
with the thongs already mentioned.
Then she was shot full of arrows and
her heart was offered to the god of

superstition kept them obedient to
Finally a young man, of high rank
in the tribe, named Petahlayshahrho,
determined to strike a decisive blow.
As the ceremony of. sacrifice was
about to be performed he interrupted
the proceedings by suddenly cutting
the captive loose from her bonds,
carrying her swiftly through the as
tonished throng of spectators, mount
ing his horse with her and galloping
When out of reacb of pursuers he
gave the girl a horse, and boldly re
turned to his tribe, declaring his un
alterable opposition to the continua
tion of the bloody ceremony. Being
a famous warrior, and nephew of the
chief of the tribes, he found influen
tial supporters, and the sacrifice was
never again performed by the Paw
nees. The ritual, without the sacrifice,
however, continued, and later an at
tempt was made to revive the sacri
fice, and the thongs now in the mu
seum were prepared for the purpose.
But they were never used, the opposi
tion proving too strong for the
bloody-minded members of the tribe
who wished to renew the killings.
The thongs were kept in the family
of the man who made them, who was
known to the whites as "White
horse." When Pethahlaysharho visited
Washington in 1821 the ladies of that
city presented him with a medal in
commemoration of his bold defiance
of the worshippers of Mars. Many
abhorrent details of this sacrifice as
it was performed by the Aztecs have
been preserved by the Spanish chron
iclers. In Mexico one of the cere
monies consisted of a contest be
tween a captive bound by a thong to
a huge stone disk, and compelled to
defend hriself with a club against

to represent jaguars and two to rep

Girl Workers Who Win
The Model Who Had Ambition
By JANE M'LEAN.
"Yes, this is Dick Vars speaking.
Will you come tomorrow at 10:30,
please? Thank you. Goodbye."
The girl hung up the receiver and
stood thinking for a moment before
she went to keep another appoint
ment. She was a model, a very good
model at that, although she was not
beautiful. She was the kind of a girl
that people notice. She had strong
features and a well-shaped head, and
she had been posing for several years
successfully, but with little or no in
terest for her work.
In short, she had not found( her
self. She' was restless and discon
tented. She wanted something that
she had not discovered, and she found
her work often extremely irksome.
Her work consisted mostly of
pretty girl heads for magazine cov
ers. She posed, gazing dreamily out
of a window, holding a rose, as a
bride, in all sorts of positions that
artists called good sellers. Her life
had been fortunate in that it had
been free from sordidneas. The men
with whom she had come in contact
were a decent sort, in earnest about
their work, and treated her with pro
Oh, yes, posing was easy enough.
There were not the many pitfalls
waitjng for the traditional model of
fiction as authors made out. A girl
can always be decent and keep her
self-respect. It isn't the life that
matters; it's what's in the girl; what
she really is. But the real danger
lay in the fact that one was apt to
The girl never felt that she was
getting anywhere. There was noth
ing about one . day of work to dis
tinguish it fromsanother, and she
wanted to make good; to feel that
she counted in the world of people.
At 10:30 on the following morning
she reported at Dick Vara' studio.
The girl hardly knew the young
artist, but from certain sharp deduc
tions that she had made she decided
that he was poor. His work was
good, extremely good, but his can
vases were always in their accus
tomed places and he looked shabby
in-spite of the engaging friendliness
of his manner.
"Haven't you tried to sell any of
your work?" she asked as they began
work, she in a conventional nn anH
he before his easel. 1
"Yes, I've tried," he answered
frankly, "but not with much success.
You see, I look a little seedy, people
realize that I nted the cash and when
they see me coming they're always
ready with a nice little refusal. One
of those stereotyped remarks about
being overstocked, you know."
"Yes, I know," responded the girj.
Somehow she felt like sympathizing
with this boy. And then a sudden
thought struck her. Well, why not?
She could do it, she knew she could
do it, if only he would let, her try.
"I have an idea," she offered
"An idea? Out with it I always
like .to hear ideas; occasionally I
have them myself."
"Let me try to sell your pictures."
The girl made the statement abrupt
ly, watching the man's face -closely.
The man went on painting. "What
do you mean?" he said finally.
"I want to help you and help my
self. It's just a business proposi
tion. You can pay me a percentage
on every picture I sell. I'm sick of
sitting here doing nothing day after
day. If you will let me help you, you
will be helping rqe more than I can
"Sure, go ahead," the man re
turned fiinally. "You can try, any
wav. and it's decent of vou to want
to help, iwenty-hve per cent
vours if vou make good.
"And we'll make good," the girl
returned eagerly. "I'm too much in
earnest not to. I can hardly wait to
begin, and it's just going to make
the difference of really counting or
just drifting along. You understand,
And the man nodded as he made a
long downward sweep with the brush
and paused to get the effect.
