NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Several important additions have been made to the Pacific Island and Asiatic collections of the Peabody Museum, according to an announcement made yesterday.

The barbarian collection has 21 fur deals curiously decorated and constructed as one of the features of his display; Arctic whips, boots, sled fixtures, and crude musical instruments add interest to this exhibit.

In the Mclancsian department of the Pacific Island collection, an assortment of 80 war clubs, most of them previously stored in the basement for lack of display space, are now on exhibition. Grass skirts, hand looms, and shark-teeth spears 16 feet long are also being shown. Some dancemasks made of human skulls, gum, earth, and lime, are a unique feature of the collection.
