A Curious Indian Mask. —Dr. Hitchcock of Tucson, Arizona, has a curiosity in an Indian mask for the face. It was found about eight miles out of Tucson. It is carved in wood and is a work of art in its way. It is decorated by engravings in the form of vines and armour plates, with a modern cross on the chin and another on the forehead under a crown. Across the eyes is a dense mass of white hair projecting down somewhat after the present style called banged. On each cheek is a long tuft of hair also from the chin. This hair work is all drawn through from the inside, and is ingeniously done. The mouth is open and the stumps of two teeth are still visible, others are broken close. The whole is painted black, while the engraved lines show the white wood. Taken altogether it is the most hideous thing an Indian could invent. —“ Tucson Citizen.”
