    Excerpt from Uniform With This Volume: Each With Illustrations

    Time of its burial, with a note of the year, day and hour when it may alone be brought above ground. These formalities duly observed, the guardian of the treasure, be he Negro, Djin, or Serpent, will unfailingly render up his charge. In a country peopled by a dozen different races, it is not surprising to find that a considerable interchange of folk-tales has taken place, these having, in the majority of cases, been adapted to suit the ideas and customs of the borrowers. In addition, however, to such Supernals as the various Christian races of the country may have thus introduced into their own popular legends and stories, there are many others which have remained the peculiar property of each respectively. I have already, in the Foreword to my translations of Greek Wonder Tales, dealt at some length with the mythical personages who figure in the folklore of the modern Hellenes, - the classical Fates, N ereids, Lamias, Syrens, and others, many of whom may be looked upon as but personifications of the powers of nature. Of the same character also are the Vilas and Samodioas of the Slavonic communities. The former seem to approach most nearly to the fairies of the West.
