SOME CURIOUS METHODS IN USE
AMONG VARIOUS PEOPLES.
How Kativoe f Bormeo Prodaee Fire y
theCoaastressloa of Air Igniting-Tlader
T Sawing and 'Tlowing" Bow the
Chemical Match Came to Be Invented.
The most enrions of all known methods
of making Sre is practiced by tbe native
tribes ot Borneo and Bunnah. Funnily
enough, tbe instrument vhich they em
ploy is utilized for the same purpose to
day by the scientific physicist in-the la
boratory. Tbe primitive form of appa
ratus used by the barbarous people above
referred to is simply a cylinder of buffalo
horn, with a sort of piston that fits into it.
Ii the receptacle that holds this "fire
hj nuge." as it is called, is also carripd a
Mirmll box filled with tinder. When fire is
wanted a piece of tinder is placed in the
hollowed end of the piston, which is there
upon inserted into the mouth of tbe cylin
der of buffalo horn. Holding tbe cylinder
in the left hand the operator strikes tbe
knob of the piston a smart, blow with the
open right Land, the force being sufficient
to drive it home.
Owing to the natural law by which com
pressed air srives ur h-nt nmU. i,.x
of volume, the tinder in the end of the nia-
u -w:ura ure ana is seen to be alight,
when the piston is instantly and quickly
withdrawn after the blow has been struck.
Gentle breathing upon the spark fans its
commencing glow; freU tinder is applied,
which catches fire immediately; more
blowing increases the flame, and scraped
wood and theu small sticks are added to
make the besrinninir nf & hlor
this process for obtaining fire looks, it re-
4uueB uo nine skiu and practice.
A very interesting monograph on tbe
Orumaking methods of the world, among
which this one is referred to, is published
by the Smithsonian institution. The well
known process of obtaining the spark of
ignition by drilling with a revolving stick
into anot her piece of wood is first descriled.
It varies in manner so miiph that. unm
wivages can get tire in this way in a frac
tion 01 a minute, wmie tne Ainos of Japan
require two hours or more for the purpose.
Next is roeutinned the ninn nf m.v;.i, a..
1 MA U
by sawing, which is in common use among
.uc.uamvs ana mrougnout the East In
dies. A nntive will cut j v ckonui
a branch of tbe oil tree, put a knife edge
on a piece of iron wood, saw quickly back
and forth with the latter in the V, and in
less inan tnree minutes he will have set
fire with the incande.wnt ens-rfnoe ,
iricrd by the friction to tinder held under
neath. Then he will put the ignited
tinder in a bunch of dry leaves, wrap them
,u uneu kiwi, wmn me ounaie areand
his head and have a flame in "jiffy."
However, the usuaI mor.hnrl t
ing by sawing practiced by these people is
to take two pieces of bamboo one a hol
lowed convex strip, and the other prepared
with an edge like a knife. The former is
piacea witn tne convex side up, and the
knife edge is sawed rapidlv back and forth
across it. Presenr.lv the hollownd
niece is ti erred through th
saw, and the incandescent dust falls upon
tinder beneath, igniting the latter. Some
times the process is reversed, and the con
vex piece holding the tinder is sawed upon
the bamboo knife, which is fixed with the
edge up. Bamboo is an excellent friction
material; me si iiceous coating is favorable
for tbe development of ptmc
tUe soft, marrowy substance inside is very
CJuite as odd is the only method of flre
makinc known tn the Plnu.u.. .
whom it exclusively belongs namely, that
of the "plowing stick." Tbe operator rubs
h groove in a piece of soft wood with the
-:id of a stick of hard wood, the rubbing
t ick wearing off particles of the soft wood
and pushing them along in heap at the
end of a groove. By acceleration of the
motion they are brought up to the point of
iL.un.ion. much expertness is required to
perform the process successfully, but flame
i ssid to be procured directly without the
ii -e of tinder.

At the beginning a very general preju
dice was felt against friction matches be
cause they were poorly made, bung fire,
readily absorbed moisture, emitted noxious
ix tors and were costly. The worst ones,
however, were more expeditious than the
t.nder box, and improvements were soon
made. Nevertheless it is seriously sug
gested by Mr. Hough as worthy of inquiry
whether the alarming deterioration of the

But One Dream.
Sir William Fraser mentions a clever
retort made by Lord Fitz Clarence when in
France in attendance on the queen. He
met the Prince tie Joinville, who, as a
French admiral, professed to be patriot
ically bellicose toward Kngland in par
ticular. He said to Lord Adolpiius in a
friendly manner: "You, my lord, and I are
seamen. 1 have had but one dream in my
life to command a smart French frigate
and to lay my own alongside of an F.nglish
ship of tbe same strength for twenty min
utes." ,ord Adolphus replied in a spirit of per
fect courtesy, "I think, air, that ten wonld
so enough. "Londua Tit-Bite.
