Gifts to Peabody Museum.
The Peabody Museum has recently received two valuable collections from Mr. L. H. Farlow of Cambridge. One of these consists of baskets made by the Indians of California and Nevada early in the last century. Owing to the fact that the baskets now made are few in number and of poor quality, the old baskets are rare and costly. The other collection, comprising articles from the Indians of the Northwest Coast, and the Esquimaux of Alaska, includes the complete dress of a Wichita squaw, wooden dishes, models of sleds, household utensils, tools and bags.
