Strange Customs uml Kup-rititiuna
A rieturrinrt Dance.
A correspondent of the SprlngtioM
Republican, writing from the interior
of Madagascar, says:
One of tlio most curious customs
iracticod by tits Sukalsivus in a kind of
ncantatlon and dunce, called thu Snla
manga, to iinluco thu spirit of evil,
which thoy boliovo possossus every ouo
who ia ill, to leave tlio body in which it
has enteral. To drive out this spirit
many forms are gone through under
tho direction of n sorcoror. In nil
Sakalava towns there is a place ar
ranged for tho driving out of evil spir
its. A platform about seven feet long
and three foot broad in supported
twenty-five foot in the air by a straight
up-and-down ladder constructed on one
of the polos. Two moro porpondicul&r
polos Btand at either end of tho plat
form, and about twelve feet from it.
At the tops of these lust two polos
charms are tied, und on tho ground
loaning against them, two wooden
idols are plucod. When a spit-it is to
be driven out, wood is brought to this
place and arrangements nro made for
building firos round the circle Inclosing
tho scafloldiiig and Idols. Oxen and
bullocks are also brought and secured
noar the scaffolding, tho number depend
ing upon tho rank of the sick person.
s night approaches tho Invalid is
brought out, arrangod in full dress,
and hoisted upon tho platform. Tho
cattlo are then killed und their blood
smeared over tho two idols, and also
over the bodios of tho people- collected
about tho placo. As tho sun goes down
the ilres aro lighted, and drums and
bamboos aro beaten. A circle is then
formed around the scaffolding and
idols, and tho people, shouting and
screaming, begin to circle around in a
kind of danco, first slowly, then faster
and faster, until thoy are nearly crazy.
At tlio same time spoars aro thrown
high in the air and tho idols are struck
at again and ogaiu in order to forco
tho gods to act
AU have on their dross ornaments,
and the sorcoror, under whoso diroo
tion tho affair is being conduoted,
usually -wears a very high hat, gorge
ously trimmed and docked with leaves
and flowers. As tho danco continues
tho screaming suddenly slops, and wo
men and girls begin to sing in a mo
notonous refrain. Aftor the goueral
danco tho people fall back out of tho
ring, and a woman of rank, throwing
off noarly all her clothing, steps with
in the circle of ilro and begins to
danco, kooping time to tho drums and
bamboos, which inako a terrible din.
This porformanco is often repented
several times beforo tho sick person is
given up. Upon ono occasion, in order
to koep in tho good graces of the peo
ple, your correspondent was obliged to
take part in this danco. An invalid
who docs not got any bettor after re
peated attempts to drivo out tho ovll
spirit, is often treated in a most bar
barous manner; poison is either admin
. istered or a spear driven through tho
breast. This last cure from misery is
usually ncsorted to by request of tho
Tho Sakalavas havo another poouliar
and picturesque danco 'which takes
place by inooulight usually upon tho
nights of the full moon. Drums are
beaten, bamboos and horns aro blown,
and the wholo villago is turned out.
All the men then form in an open
space, which sorves as aklnd of parade
ground. Tho music continues and tho"
dance begins, the men in their actions
representing tho various movements
assumed in battle. There is tho at
tack, tho conflict, the pursuit and tho
victory. All are shown by a kind of
acting. Their spears, which aro very
long and bright, gliston in tho moon
light as they are repeatedly hurlod up
in tho air and caught again in ono
hand, while a colored scarf of somo
kind is waved in the other. To mo tho
wholo performance was strange and
exciting, and, undoubtedly, it is very
inspiring to tho savage Sakalavas.
Later in the evening the women and
children join in the dance, and singing

It is a terrible severe courso that ono
has to go through Iu preparing to
dance on the stage, lruo enough, the
dancer who means to exerciso Tier art
ns Taglioni did, must show nothing of
the gymnast in her performance; but
gymnastic.! of tho severest kind nro tho
most necessary part of tho training.
When dono with the grace of a Taglioni
it does not kcciu so hard to turn tho
feet outward "until they form a
straight line," to balance oneself on
the points of the toes, or to pirouotto
gracefully ou ono leg; but tho toll of
these exercises Is known only to those
who navo practiced thorn undor tho
eaglo eye of the ballet-master; and
they are, after all, only tho A B C of
tho art. Tho French author of a re
markable work on tho subject mentions
a score or moro of technical studios,
such as les taqucles, lex roncltcs, les bal
uncus, les entrechats, les dcvelopjh-s, les
y rands lunettes, which, as Mr. Cook
says, are scarcely intelligible outside
the walls of the class-room. Ono has
but to glance at tho limbs of a prima
ballerina, say on tho stage of tho
Alhambra, to' form a notion of tho ex
traordinary severity of tlio training sho
has undorgouo, tho displacement of
tho calf, tho fattcuing of tho leg in
front, tho disproportion in size botweon
tho arms and legs; showing, what
might have been expected, that tho
lower muscles can not bo abnormally
developed without injury to the upper.
It says something for tho skill with
which Taglioni was trained, and much
also, no doubt, for tho natural vigor
and elasticity of her form, that by the
tinio sho was ready for her debut, hor
flguro was not ouly quito unspoiled,
but had developed to an almost ideal
perfection of suppleness nud grace.
Many a ballet dancer has a cood log.
but a beautiful arm is a rare possession;
yet ono of her English critics, when
she lirst appeared in London, said with
emphasis, in his commonts on her
personal charms, that "Mile. Taglioni
has a singularly lino arm."

It is active and swift, and irritable to
such a degree that ono can scarcoly
help thinking that in this specios
nature has overshot her mark. Whon
a person passes noar one, say within
three or four yards of its lurking-place,
it starts up and gives chase, apd will
often follow for a distance of thirty or
forty yards. I camo ouco very noarly
being bitten by ono of thoso savage
creatures. Kuling at an easy trot over
tho dry crass, I suddenly obsorved a
spider pursuing mo, leaping swiftly
along and koeping up witn my Doast,
I aimod a blow with my whip, and the
point of tho lash struck tho ground
close to it, when it instantly leaped
upon aud ran up the lash, and was
within three or four inchos of my hand
when 1 flung tho whip from mo. The
gauchos havo a very quaint ballad
which tells that tho city of Cordova
was onco invaded by an army of mon
strous spiders, and that tho townspeo
ple went out, with beating drums and
flags flying, to repel tho invasion, and
after lirlug several volleys thoy were
forced to turn and fly for their lives. I
havo no doubt that a sudden great in
crease of tho man-chasing spiders, in a
year exceptionally favorable to them,
suggested this talo to somo rhyming
satirist of tlio town. Ucnllemaris
