Austral- African Notes and Anecdotes (191 3), Hausa Folk-Tales, assisted by a grant from the British Association (1914) ; The Ban of the Bori : Demons and Demon- Dancing in West and North Africa (1914). The extent and value of these contributions during a short period show the energy with which he worked, both in the field and at the desk, and they amply prove the great loss to science by his untimely death, when his powers were at their fullest, and much more valuable books and articles might have been expected had his life been spared. He was a gallant and skilful soldier. His geniality of character and his readiness to assist his fellow-workers endeared him to a large circle of friends.
