0 THE ERA, GOLLBN, R C, October 18  till,
-S. lalmux and Insllnn Curios.
C W. Mai here brought back with
bim from Peri river and point* on tha
Mnckenxie and Athabasca a number ot
Esquimaux and Indian curiosities,
��s well as photographic view*, the
views are now in proces-t of development. Mr. Mather's reputation as a
photo artist is a sufficient assurance
that ihey will do justice io the subject. They will he the only viewa
taken in th* north country hy a |.ro
tes. ioual photographer using the lat*��t
and most comideis appliances.
The curios, the actual work of the
native*, bring ihem actually nearer
than lhe .photos. They ahow their
manner of life and ae well ihe different
manners and habile of mi nil of different
tribe*. The Kai|iiiin*ux were met only
at MePheraun on Peel river an.l are
the most, iiileresiing, not because ihey
are tha moat dislaut aud tlie least
known, bul because tliey are the most
independent of civilised influences and
show by far the greatest ingenuity
and industry in tlie manufacture of
their tools, utensil* and weapons. In
appearance they remnble the Japanese
much more than they do the Indians
and thtir skill tnd induitry would III-
dicaie-*uch a relationship rather thau
with the Indiana. The Esquimaux
and Indian* hare no intercourse what
erer. They look upon each other as
of different and hostile race At tlie
lime of Mr. Mather's, visit to Fort Mc
Pherson both Eaqoimaux from the
Arctic coast and Louchieux from the'
Yukon were camping there. Trouble
had arisen and lor a lime there was
every prospect ofsosiou* disturbance.
But it did not occur as the stay of both
paities was short.
Mr. Mathers was ptrticulaily struck
by the expertnets ot the Esquimaux
in navigating their kyaks or skiu
boats. These boats are about fifteen
feet lung of whale akin drawn tightly
over a frame work, and covering the
top as well as the sides and bottom. A
hole in the centre of the deck lhe size
ot the man's body allows him to kneel
iu the boat. It is navigated by a long
double bladed puddle. Mr. Mathers has
a small model of a kyak, about two
feet long, an exact reproduction in
ininiaure of those in use. The bottom
Is much sharper than that ol a birch
bark canoe and would therefore be ao
much more cranky. But the Eaqui
maux manage I hem with perfect safety
���list lhe utmos  dext-rity.
The E-squimiiux areoxjseit workers
not only iti iron but in steel, and indeed manufacture their nwn weapons
���nd tools by working over steel articles
of civilised manufacture. They prefer
Ihe knives and tools they make themselves to those suld by the traders, Mr
Mathers has a large two edged knife
Somewhat over a toot in length made
by the Esquimaux from a large black
smith rasp, The aha|ie of the knife is
as perfect aud th* tiuish a* elegant a*
could be turned out uf the best work*
in Sheffield, except that on one aid* of
llie upper and heavier part ot the
bind* some of ihe roughness of the rasp
si ill remain*. What means are used
by the Esquimaux tc produce auch ra*
suits Mr. Mai hers does not know. But
he has the kuite uud it appear* for it,
eeli. The handle is wrapped wilh white
whale skiu. The kuife ia uaed for culling tuow with whicli to contlruct
their winter houses or Igloo*.
He has two other knives evidently
ordinary kuivre worked over.   They
are used for shaving and shaping wood.
Titer are about three inohe* In length
wiih a straight edge sloping slightly
backward, and ate fastened Into long
crooked handles,    One ol lhe handle*
is the pari ol a rib of ��� whale, and th*
uther* prong of a dear'* horn,   Tin
iiwthud ot using it by grasping tht
handle iu ibe right hand juat above
tlie blad* with th* edge facing toward*
tlw left. Tne knife it therefore worked
bv pushing from the operator,  iuitead
of dra viu.( tu hiin at is the ons* in th*
draw kuife or spoke ibave whiob ar*
-uaed for like work by civilize! peoples.
The long crouked handle of the Esqui
maqx kuil* give* tupport to tbe hand
by letting on ihearin above the elbow.

both tides and the workmanship il
equal to the beat that oun be dons in
civilians Ion.
A three pronged S|war la a peculiar
waajion ol tha collection. It is used
lo kill the animal* whioh are not too
large to be handle I I y one man. The
prong* are ot steel, aal aomewhat
barbed. They are not in line like the
trident wnich Neptune is pictured aa! inonton Bulletin,
holding, but ure disposed in ��� circle.
The ahaft of the epear ia about eight,
feet long, of wood, light and straight
The spear is thrown with the aid of a
throwing atick about eighteen inches
in length, made ot light wood wilh a
bone fixture to catch tlie end of tl.e
spear.
The Esquimaux harpoon is another
peculiar weapon of which Mr. Mathers
bas a sample. The handle ia of wood
somewhat shorter than that of the
���pear. The Heel barb ii net iu a short
piece ot bone which fits in tl.e end of
the spear handle. A soft line of whale
���kin it attached to the handle, to whioh
also is attached an inflated bladder.
The other end of the line is attached
to the bone shank of the barb. The
line is so -wound around the handle,
and tl.e loose section aa to hold the
barb in place until the spear is thrown
and the barb finds lodgement under the
���kin of tlie victim. By thia action the
line becoinea Unwound releasing tlie
barb Irom the handle. As the animal
divte the resistance of the bladder
oauses the Hue to unwind altogether
ao that the harpoon, handle aud bladder are at one eud ot the lin* and the
animal with the barb in his flesh at
the other. The tendency of the bind'
der is lu' rise, Thi* keeps th* line
taut, *hd when lha animal rises to
ward the surface the bladder appear*
before ha doe*.. The Esquimaux who
are on the watch, in their kyak*, ar*
thU* given time to reach tha spot before the animal himself appear! io thst
they may attack him with their lances
or loug bladed spears whioh are used
for killing not for throwing.
There are a number of fish books of
Esquimaux mak*. Then are all made
ol one pattern but of different sizes.
The shank of the hook ia of bona and
of the shape of a fiah. The Una is at
taohed through a bole In the tall and
the spike, ot Iron, whioh acts a* a barb
is put through ths head. Usually thi*
i* a wire nail, sharpened and the point
