PUBLICATIONS

A description of "Jade in British Columbia and Alaska, and Its Use by the Natives," by Lieut. George T. Emmons, was issued early in the year.  This little work with numerous illustrations in color, forms one of the parts of Indian Notes and Monographs, and pertains to a noteworthy collection which had merely been deposited by Lieutenant Emmons at the time of publication,, but which has since been acquired by the Museum.

A second publication is a product of the researches of the Hendricks-Hodge Expedition, namely, "Circular Kivas near Hawikuh, New Mexico," by F.W. Hodge.  It appears in the octavo series of Contributions from the Museum.

Feeling the need of a closer contact with the friends and correspondents of the Museum, it was deemed wise, at the beginning of the present year, to commence the publication, as occasion requires, of a little magazine with a view of affording information concerning the Museum and its varied activities, and to give a more ready and less expensive means of issuing the lesser descriptions of Indian artifacts than is afforded by Indian Notes and Monographs.  To this end the first issue of Indian Notes appeared in January, while the second has recently come from the press.  The favorable comments from many quarters on the usefulness of such a publication sets at rest any question as to its desirability.

EXCHANGES

An exchange was made with Dr. W.C. Barnard of Seneca, Missouri, whereby we received some ceremonial pieces, etc., from various tribes in the United States, for archeological material from Arkansas and Missouri.

A Narragansett woven bead garter was received from Norris L. Bull of Hartford, Connecticut, in exchange for a pipe from New England.

M. D. C. Crawford of New York City sent us a large volcanic carved stone disc from the Valley of Mexico, together with four archeological specimens from Peru, in exchange for a lot of specimens from Mexico, Ecuador and Peru.

A horn spoon from the Haida Indians of Alaska and an Eskimo pipe of ivory were received from Mrs. Thea Heye in exchange for two Zuni jars from New Mexico.
