                  some pollen are ail that they need.

                  In ritual clairvoyance or prediction the root called linew'a, pre-
                  sumably a narcotic, is commonly used.

                  Any grain of corn you saw dropped outside you would pick up and
                  bring into the house. It will bring corn to the house. If you leave
                  it lying, you will not grow good corn, or the corn you grow will not
                  last long.

                  If your eye twitches, you will get news. The left eye of my friend
                  had been twitching one day and he opined that he was going to receive
                  shortly a letter from his daughter. The day following he did receive
                  the letter, to his twofold satisfaction. A big fly in thé house means
                  company. "Let's clean up," the woman will say. On hiccoughing,
                  Lucinda says, "Somebody thinking of me." A crow cawing is calhng
                  cold weather.

                  In some curing ceremonies, with a special feather the doctor will
                  make a circle around the patient, and then circle the patient himself
                  with the feather, five times. After this the feather flies up into the
                  roof. When it drops, if it fall within the circle, the patient will
                  recover, if without thé circle, he will die.~

                  Tuesday is an ill-omened day-mala suerte, say thé Mexicans.
                  People would not get married on Tuesday, or hold meetings, or start
                  on a trading journey, or hunt. For the ominousness of a deer whistle
                  see p. 439.

                  FUNERARY PRACTICES

                  A Idnsman, the son of the deceased, or other relative, goes to the
                  chief of the Corn group of the deceased, who will send an assistant
                  to the house to sprinkle meal from the feet of the corpse to the door.
                  (There is no orientation of the corpse. Formerly the head was placed
                  on a block of adobe.~) The aunt (ky'uu) of the deceased is also
                  summoned. (If the deceased have no kyunin the Corn chief will
                  appoint a woman assistant to perform the proper functions.) With
                  her she brings a bowl of water and cotton and a twig brush. She
                  brushes the hair of the deceased, washes~ and dries the face. The
                  water she has used may not be thrown outside the door. She throws s
                  it within the threshold where she also breaks thé bowl, leaving the
                  pieces, that the people coming in may step on them.~ The hands of
                  See pp. 452 and 285, 310, 458.

                  For other omens in ritual see pp. 313 and 448, 449.

                  35 Mexiean custom.

                  as The father's sister, as at Laguna (Parsons, 12:19S) and elsewhere.

                  37 When I referred to this fonction of the aunt, Lucinda, the secretive one, was startled, and covered
                  her mouth with her hand, the Pueblo motion to conceal emotion. Recovering, she said that the aunt
                  had to "clean every corner" of the room "to start a new me."

                  M This practice seems strangely non-FueNo. Op. a like funerary practice among thé Tarahumare.
