Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - June 14, 1890, Woodland, California n 4 VOL. XXVI WOODLAND. YOLO COUNTY. CAL.. SATURDAY EVKNING, JUNE 14, 1890. NO 123. A STRANGE HUMAN RACE CHARACTERISTICS Or THE PEOPLE ON THE YEZO ISLAND, and the Pit Who Preceded Bib of tho of Frofewor Sltoli- oock'i Standing in the midst of a collection in a biff glass case recently set up in the Na- tional museum at Washington Is the figure of a man a little below the average height of tbe Caucasian. This is a typical Aino, modeled by the clever artists Attached to the mnaeun, flesh tints, eyes, beard, hair and all reproduced exactly aa they appear in life and clad la garments woven by Alnos. Around hlin are household imple- ments, shuttles for weaving, fishing spears and tackle, bows and arrows and the othur rude furnishings that represent all that the nrta of this primitive people have produced to raise them abo re absolute savagery. An Interesting part of the collectionisan Aino house reproduced In miniature, with its and other appurtenances The Alno In the center of the case has a great shock of gray hair, a huge gray beard and shaggy eyebrows. His complexion is of a light coppery hue, his cheek bones high and his nose straight, but broad at the base. On his head Is a. triangular head dress. A long gown girdled lit the waist arid ornamented with designs embroidered in white on a dark blue Teaches from his shoulders beloiv bis knees. Hia legs down to his ankles are protected by leggings and his fuet are bare. Over one is slung by a light strap a haver woven of rushes. In his belt or girdle his left side is supported awooden quiver filled with arrows, and behind in hub girdle is thrust a caned stick, to which is at tached the little basket or pooch in which the Amu carries his supply of smoking to "bacco.

When he gets home if any one questions liis statements he can produce- the irrefutable evidence of a photographic record. Professor Romyn Hitchcook, (if the National museum, when he recently In tke island of Yezo, Japan, and the islands known as the Kuriles, stretch- ing in a long chain northward from Yezo almost to Kamchatka, collected not only complete series of specimens illuitrntive of the life of the Inhabitants of tliese al moat unknown lands, but also secured a luge number of photographs that in them- selves make a graphic and interesting ord of his journey. Thecas.3 in which the model of the Aino stands is filled with t lie specimens collected by Hitch cock. The Aino figure was naodeied on photographs and measurements taken by him from these far awtiy shores It has been only recently that anything haa been known of any part of Vezo, cv cepfc certain districts lying on the coast. The first extensne exploration of the and was made by an American, T, W Blaktsbon, in 1872, Mr. Blakiston, how ever, confined his observations chiefly to thehirdsand plants and contnbutedwstly to the knowledge of the botany and OT-- Hithology of the region. Ko one explored the country to any extent with a view to its human inhabitants until Mr Hitchcock made bis gournuy in 16SS Suih Information as had been printed concern- a years ago would have been deemed miraculous The lake covers rather more than a thou- sand acres, and in places is a hundred fathoms deep. Itb source is the surround- ing hills and mountains, and periodically it falls and rises. It is surrounded on every side by low wooded hills and forms a' beautiful and picturesque dark sheet of water enbosomed In rolling woodlands Tha waters cleanse and feel Itka water with a solution of soap. They taste dis- agreenble and nauseous. I visited the lake for the first time fh e months ago. 1 then procured a quantity of the salts obtained from the waters of the lake by an evaporating process.

Can 1 picture Thackeray's appearance after the lapse of all these jears? I can see him "in my mind'a eye'7 perfectly, but to describe him with pen and ink Is not eaay. He is tall and broutl shouldered, and had a complexion like Horace Greeley's, pure milk ji nd robes, such as a girl might emy ilia hair was Tcrj n bile, his nose as flat aa an} negro's (it liort broken, I and he wore large spectacles pushed close against eyes. Neither in appcarante nor tn manner did he make a fai Ci. tile im- pression upon me, but then I was a Americ.in girl, nnd he was, I remember him USIUH this expression frequently, "a great (run." He swore in the presence of ladies, aa offense whicb, in America in thoso dayg, almot-t assumed the proportions of a crime; and this was Thackeray in Paris A celebrated author, a critic manners and in tbe most polished capital in Christendom. He struck me as being a coarse man, without a throb of tenderness In his nature, t waa Logan in St. Louis Post-Dispatch. tin You Know a Good CIgrar?
