Is the r?? tha' there is practically no oar-Iocs on the tre<\ or rest, against which t h>* loug oar Is leaM d. The forcoia Is In ltst'ir a work of art, s*.Ucted with infinite pulnn from a natural ' knee'' of hard word, whittled down Into the most knowing unifies. poiit>n<'d here, scooped ot!' there, and Inserted firmly Into a .^!of on tne rltrht hHud of the narrow poop-deck. It la sfronges'in the Hue or greatest stiaiu. There its nu unLecessary material In It. and yet It la n .t a li er*- u-iy block of wood. Tne lout; uar is n adt- al. of a pi?vp. save fcr a strlo on the upper she-r o: the blade; this Is joined on. and must always b upwatd when the blade striKes water. The oar lock near the top of the -Knee-' Is simply a hollow, from wnlch the oar or the i ovK:e si ps as scon as he has placed It In position. L'ke an olental language, this lntrii a'e ui.o most oriental mode of rowing is mi3t dlflicult in Its alphabet; it appears a hopeless ta-k at the outlet. Att.er learning to keep trie o.tr la the notch of theforcolu furs few strokes, the position of the feet must be taken Into consideration. The forcola is On the rl^ht. on the st?rb' ard (rr sirertx^rdi of the crift: therefore, one stands over on the lert, and the consequence is that the boat?a very light one. ir a stiiidolo?heels over to port. The Pjft foot Is placed forward, with the toe turning to the j left; Th" r'ght Is b3Ck and up to the incline of ID*- .-n JJU g J-UU^F, nuturuuji's uuusiiiorauiy 10 : She leit ot the line of the other fo t. As the toat is nearly tlar bostomed, the heeling ! over consequent on the weight cf the rower f( rms a kliid of keel for the craft. Now, a3 the i lines of the boat narrow toward fh" bow, this ! ke 1 la not perfectly straight, and, therefore, ' counteracts to some extent tee natural tendency ot a boat rowed only on one sldo to turn it> prow always away Irom the oar. The stroke lus?-lf Is more nearly akin to the Indian canoe stroke with single paddle than anjthing else. The oar describes a peculiar tw 1st in the water Just at the em of th? stro&e, a? d clligs to the surface for a great, pirt of t.l'e I lecMTtr." i:y standing well back of thofoicola 1 hii.i leading forward, allowir ' also for the false t?eel mai:e By the sharp Immersed side ot the b at ji at u ent'oned. and giving the upwjrd tv Lsi ai the end ot the stroke, the result of all i liese cempdeated movements is to send th**boat forward smo jthly. save for a gentle f 11. I < doe? nof proceed straight forward, as a b~at propelled by two oars would, bat has n ally aij almost lmpercfptloie sidling movement. A gondolier combines all the motions so skillfully and naturally that the rowing looks very easy: but It Is enough to take the < ar In hand, wltiout even mounting the narrow. rocking poop-deck, to convince a novice that the safest place for him la the cushioned yat. When a second rower enters tlio ooat, he takes position well forward on the other 3lde, bringing the boat on an even neeL Tnen th< iov lng la less complicated, for thsre is qj need or compensating for tne swinging abaut of the piow as when but one oar Is used. The forward man Is merely a worker; the poop-oar does the steerli g. On the other band, the bead gondolier takes the first oar. not only because It Is easier work, but because he helps the paasen gi i ill au'1 uui, gura aianua UU auure, SUU UU13 I the monotonous sla premi! sla stall: by which J an unseen craft Is warned ol the approach of the gondola. Ail these details are familiar to those who, i belLg in Venice, have followed l-ord Byron's example and taken lessons in Venetian rowing. But their number is necessarily very limited. It is unfortunate, for the mode of , upright rowlpg practiced there would be a cicst desirable addition to our present out-door I sports. It expands the chest, and, like fencing, exercises evenly all the muscles of the frame. Ii Is a most graceful accomplishment, requiring some strength, but mucn more tact and adtlivaf. It has been proved that to attempt to Introduce the gondola on our waters Is as useless as futile; thirty years ago a gondola was Imported Into New York. But with the jandoio the caae is different. The tlat not U'Q.ed "sharpies" in the bajsoff Long Island sound are very near In their general shape to a sandulo; they can be rowed with a forcola ;ind leng oar. In the Venetian fashion. Many fore'gL residents of Venice since Byron's time biive come under the spell of this fascinating srort, and tne las' summer witnessed an event never before seen?the competition of a yc.ng English slgnor In a public regatta on the Giand (.'anal. Another Englishman ha* t- ken Lome with him a sandolo and gondoliers to row it, ard appeared at a Henley regatta as tDe apostle of Venetian rowing in England. Ov log to the standing position, the sandJlo is not 111 c^iculnted for ladles; they can exercise thf lr gra'* wUhout too much demand oo th>-lr rtrengtn. and obtain a more even and continuous exeiclse than tbat afforded by lawn tennis. Th>* forward oar of the eandolo Is that which is spe< lally adapted to ladles, for, when tlrel, the gei tlernan standing In puppe can still prop-1 ard steer the boat while his partner resrs. But the maltj an ruction of the Venetian stroke I- its practice of the muscles unu^>ed by our style of rowlne. Its habitual use elves tlrm. to the gait, an erect and graceful carriage, a broad cheat ai.d a tino posh. to the head. It may be call', d a highly civilized version of the padnl ng of the savage, or a graceful and gentlen anly method of sculling, like, but yet un1 ke. tbe sculling from the stern of a boat with ot?e oar, which sailors and lUhermen practice. It 13 cot a little odd that the city which produefd a singular flower of architecture and ftainting should have preserved a style of ro<viig which may take rank as a flue art among aquatic sports.

But li^cialre, I th? ugh not a professor of Christian disclplHabip. 5 had u beix-vol'nt disposition which led him t,o n (herish this really grand and truly Christian , thought, iturlcg the ensuing seven years he as ho tells us, constam ly cudgeling his hralns to tlbd -the Oetst m?ans of bringing the t idea into practical operation." This long delay j was nni. oau.-ed by any contllct between splosh- n ne.-ife ana the principle, bui by the dltlleulty of v Inventing a plan wulch he might adopi with j a reasonable prospect of its becoming perma nent and sucoessful. He was entering an un trtdden path, and It behooved Ulm to explore It t thoroughly. y In F^f-ru&ry, 1S42, he called a meeting or his . rmp?ojei for the purpose ot annjanomg bis ' pi.rpose to henceforih divide among ih'im annually a certain portion of the prod's of i^e previous j ears. Strangely enough, tne p >'.ic i* forbade the meeting; a worklngraAn's pip?r denounced his scheme, and even nls woncueu dl.-rrui.ted htm, feariug. forsooth, that. his ap- ^ narptii lv hiMievoltMit Ann^iinnnmnnr (r.i.* :i m iMir : . concealing acm-s ulteilor purpose ti inj ir i ?j them.

This sum ho divided proportlonably to the wages each maa had earned daring the year, giving an average , to each workman of lifty dollars and a fraction. This significant object lesson transformed the dlt-t rust of bis employ oa Into unboandel conridt uoe. < The f-lx following years the averag" annual c payment to each man was about 145. Leclalra then changed his plan. He organl/.ed his men Into a mutual aid society, to which ne paid over j, the sums previously '.rlbuted, that they 0 might be partly divn: .nd partly Invested for the purpose of gls .rig retlrlug pensions to wornout workman.

The natives are In a very rude, uncivilized condition. They hove no currency, and do all i business by bartering tlie native products for manufactured stuff* Their wealth consists cblfclly in the numbe r of slaves they po.?e3s, who list, hunt, and keep their plantations in good order. When rubber has to be collected, from four to ten slaves get their lllnt muskets in order. ! each carr> leg. in addition, a long sword-shaped j knife called a machete, a number of calabashes i or jars to collect the Juice of the rubber viae, I ai;d a lit tie food that has boen cured in smote, as they can And plenty of sustenance in the bush without carrying it about wita thein from place to plarc. The vines are in some coses near to the ri towns, but generally the natives have to go c: be-veral days' journey into the bush before li i they cun 5-lt down and commence business, li I The Vint- itself Is of a rough, knotty nature], li j aboiu km thick as a man's arm, and grows to a ; o ipuytn oi fully two Hundred feet* Ite loaves ' u uregloosy, like those of the South American i } rubber tree, and a large fruit, much liked by si ; the naMvea, Is gathered from it- I have tasted ; d ; It. and found It very palatable, being slightly il acid. This vine (what its scientific name Is 1 ' t> i don't pretend to know) jleida several grades ot It , rucber, each of different commercial value, si ! the b< st quality being taken from the hlgaest U 1 p9rt, acd the poorest from the bottom. li With their knives, or machetes, the natives a 1 slash the vine In several places, and put broad | ? | leaves directly underneath the wounds for the It , Juice to drop on, and which, being of a strong 1< i adhesive Lature, none of It gets lost. When g I the top part ot the vine is bled, calabashes, or tt i Jars, are placed with their openings to the g j woundn. so that none of It may drop on the ' a j branches ot the tree, and so get lost; but it Id tl not often they trouble themselves climbing un- f< I less the vines happen to be scarce In the vi- a i clnlty.
