When a bath is desired, the
river is conveniently at hand
and any time of day or night chil
dren can be seen swimming in the
river in the heart of the city.
Raised on the water, these peo
ple are utterly fearless of it. Wo
men and children walk along the
edge of the boat regardless of the
depth of the water. In the shal
lows, cascos are propelled by lon
poles and in their effoits to speed
the boats along, the patrons fre
quently throw all their weight on
the poles, nearly standing on
their heads at times.
Streams of cascos, laden with
Philippine produce are towed to
the ocean-going steamers and re
turn with foreign produce to the
warehouses on the river banks.
There waa once an idea, that
with the deepening of the harbor
and the building of docks, at
which the big steamers could land
and discharge their cargoes, the
day of the casco would end. The
commerce of Manila has doubled
since 1905 and their is plenty of
wbtk -still for river people.
