Myth on Creation of Woman Is Matched by Vivid Picture of Man DBS MOINES. I UP (--Word juggling in the editorial columns of the "Iowa Lcgionairc:" "In the original Sanskrit, the creation of woman by Twasktrie. the Vulcan of Hindu mythology, is described thus: 'He took the lightness of the leaf and the glance of the fawn, the gaiety of the sun's rays pnd the tears of the mist; -the inconstancy of the wind and the timidity of the hare, the vanity of the peacock and the softness of the down on the throat of the swallow. He added the harshness of the diamond, the sweet flavor of honey,.the cruelty of the tiger, the warmth of fire and the chill of snow. He added the chatter of the jay and the cooing oi the turtle dove. He melted all this and formed a woman. Then he made ·,'. present of her to man'--Neil O'Hara in the Boston Traveler, reprinted in the 'Reader's Digest.' " "And here's how we think he crca.tcd He took the weight of the mud and the glare of the bear; the crabby effect of dark clouds and the roars of the storm: the disposition of the cyclone and the courage of the bull, the egotism of the goDbler and the hardness of the roustor's spur. T-lc added the softness of the sand, the sour flavor of vinegar, the tenderness of the tomcat, the heat of the volcano and the ice of the Arctics. He added the caws of the crow and the screaming of the eagle. He melted all this and formed a man. Then he gave him to woman to see what she could do with him." Iverson Funeral Held.
