INDEX OF AUTHORS

lower social classes of civilized peoples, urine possesses magic 

properties, more especially, it would seem, the urine of women 

and that of people who stand, or wish to stand, in sexual 

relationship to each other. In a legend of the Indians of the 

northwest coast of America, recorded by Boas, a woman gives her 

lover some of her urine and says: "You can wake the dead if you 

drop some of my urine in their ears and nose." (_Zeitschrift fuer 

Ethnologie_, 1894, Heft IV, p. 293.) Among the same Indians there 

is a legend of a woman with a beautiful white skin who found on 

bathing every morning in the river that the fish were attracted 

to her skin and could not be driven off even by magical 

solutions. At last she said to herself: "I will make water on 

them and then they will leave me alone." She did so, and 

henceforth the fish left her. But shortly after fire came from 

Heaven and killed her. (Ib., 1891, Heft V, p. 640.) Among both 

Christians and Mohammedans a wife can attach an unfaithful 

husband by privately putting some of her urine in his drink. (B. 

Stern, _Medizin in der Tuerkei_, vol. ii, p. 11.) This practice is 

world-wide; thus among the aborigines of Brazil, according to 

Martius, the urine and other excretions and secretions are potent 

for aphrodisiacal objects. (Bourke's _Scatalogic Rites of All 

Nations_ contains many references to the folk-lore practices in 

this matter; a study of popular beliefs in the magic power of 

urine, published in Bombay by Professor Eugen Wilhelm in 1889, I 

have not seen.)
