ABORIGINAL SUPERSTITIONS DEAD MEN'S NAMES NEVER MENTIONED. ■ By "Crystal." . Tho Central Australian aboriginal firmly Jielieved that the spirit or soul "of a deceased blackfellow immediately took up its abode in the body of an other living human being, or else continued its existence" in that of one of the lower animals. Of the former form of transmigration Qf the soul they stood in no dread whatever, evi dently regarding it'as the natural and proper consequence following disso lution. The, latter, however, they viewed with horror, it being in their minds the worst calamity that could possibly happen. Death, according to their ideas, never resulted naturally, the death of one of their number be ing invariably attributed to the agency of" an- evil spirit they called "Tandoolta." At tho time of which I write they subsisted entirely by hunt ing, and when one of them fell sick i warrior or medicine 'man was se lected to remain in camp and attend to the sick man, while the others were ab...
