PIKEMEN OF OLD.
Their Ponderous Armor and Their Six?

Tbe pikeman waa covered with de?

Iron head and a blunt iron spike at Uie
butt end. whereby to fix it In the
ground, nnd. besides tbe pike, a rapier. '
The pike, from Its prent length, was
a weapon which required deft handling
In order to be of effective uso and. as
may be imagined, was excessively
showy on parade. The modern lance
exercise ls a pretty sight enough, but
the old pike exercise, perfectly execut?
ed by a larire body of men. must ha va
been superb. We are uot surprised,
therefore, to find that the i>ostures or
Instructions for tills exercise are ex?
To give one example, at the close of
the lnstrnctlon. on the word "Order
your pikes." wc find after a mass of
complicated details the following con?
clusion: "You place the butt end of
your pike by the outside of your right
foot, your ripht hand holding lt even
with your eye and your thumb rlRht up;
then, your left arm beluR set akimbo by
your side, you shall stand with a full
body in a comely posture."?Westmin?
