The Good Luck Arrow, by E. W. Deming,
which is reproduced in colors as frontispiece in
this issue, depicts an interesting ceremony common
among American Indians. The Indian is shooting
toward the moon as a sacrifice to achieve the good-
will of the spirit which brings success in the chase.
The act is in the nature of a prayer. In New
Mexico Mr. Deming tells us he has seen an old
tree on an inaccessible cliff which has served for
many years as a mark in a modified form of this
ceremony. “The tree,” he says, “is now stuck full
of arrows and bristles like a porcupine.” Mr.
Deming has recently been engaged on some mural
decorations, to which we shall probably have occa-
sion to refer shortly.
We are in receipt of samples of the new “ Cas-
tell” drawing pencil, manufactured by A. W.
Faber. The graphite gives great delicacy and depth
of tone and holds the point well. The pencils come
in sixteen grades and will recommend themselves
especially to artists, architects and designers.
