עמוד 162 - Remora), having previously been secured by a line passed round the tail, is thrown into the water in certain places known to be suitable for the purpose ; the fish while swimming about makes fast by its sucker to any turtle of this small kind which it may chance to encounter, and both are hauled in together...
עמוד 194 - ... them. The string is a broad slip of cane, fixed to one end of the bow ; and fitted with a noose to go over the other end, when strung. The arrow is a cane of about four feet long, into which a pointed piece of the hard heavy casuarina wood is firmly and neatly fitted ; and some of them were barbed. Their clubs are made of the casuarina, and are powerful weapons. The hand part is indented, and has a small knob, by which the firmness of the grasp is much assisted ; and the heavy end is usually...
עמוד 197 - ... light wood ; one end has a small hollow to receive the knob of the throwing-stick, and to the other the leg-bone of a kangaroo six inches long, sharpened at each end, is secured in such a manner as to furnish a sharp point to the spear and a long barb besides. Another spear, occasionally used in fighting, has three or four heads of wood each of which is tipped and barbed with a smaller bone than is used for the kalak.
עמוד 150 - ... having lately been cooked here upon a framework of sticks over a small fire, precisely as is practised by the natives of New Guinea and the Louisiade Archipelago. The strip of forest behind the village is traversed in every direction by well beaten paths, chiefly leading to the back part of the island, where, on the slope of a hill in good soil, we found many patches of rude cultivation. The chief plant is a broadleaved species of yam, trained upon tall poles kept in position by cross bamboos,...
עמוד 321 - A string passed over a digit is termed a loop. A loop consists of two strings. Anatomically, anything on the thumb aspect of the hand is termed 'radial' and anything on the little-finger side is called 'ulnar'; thus every loop is composed of a radial string and an ulnar string. By employing the terms thumb, index, middle-finger, ring-finger...
עמוד 94 - ... avoided. The only other weapon which I have seen in Torres Strait is a peculiar kind of club procured from New Guinea, consisting of a quoit-like disk of hard stone (quartz, basalt, or serpentine), with a sharp edge, and a hole in the centre to receive one end of a long wooden handle. The huts which the Kowraregas and Cape York people put up when the rains commence are usually dome-shaped, four to six feet high, constructed of an arched framework of flexible sticks, one end of each of which is...
עמוד 160 - ... hand on each shoulder, generally contrives to turn it before it has got far and secure it with the rope. This operation requires considerable strength and courage, in addition to the remarkable dexterity in diving and swimming possessed by all the blacks of the north-east coast and Torres Strait. There are some favourite lookout stations for turtle where the tide runs strongly off a high rocky point. At many such places, distinguished by large cairns* of stones, bones of turtle, dugongs, &c.,...
עמוד 96 - At the south end of the huts we came to a building much superior to, and different from any of the rest. It was like a Malay house, unfinished, or one of their own smaller huts raised on posts to a height of six or seven feet The point of the gable was at least fifteen feet from the ground, the roof being supported at each end by two stout posts, about a yard apart, having their tops ornamented by carved grotesque faces, painted red, white and black, with much carving and painting below.
עמוד 173 - Their arms were bows, arrows and clubs, which they bartered for every kind of iron work with eagerness; but appeared to set little value on anything else. The bows are made of split bamboo; and so strong, that no man in the ship could bend one of them. The string is a broad slip of cane, fixed to one end of the bow; and fitted with a noose to go over the other end, when strung.
עמוד 135 - Mixed up with the biyu to render it more palatable they sometimes add large quantities of a leguminous seed, the size of a chestnut, which has previously been soaked for a night in water, and the husk removed, or the tuber of a wild yam (Dioscorea bulbifera), cut into small pieces, and well steeped in water to remove its bitter taste.
