Trabeller THE SUMPITAN OR BLOW-TUBE OF MALAYA. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 8 December 1881

%XKklltL THE SUMPITAN OR BLOW-TUBE OS1 MALAYA. Tub projeotiles ueed are darts, varying from five to eight or nine inches in length. The Dyak war dnrt is tho BhoriD3t, and is usually furnished with a small metal arrowhead. In this case the shaft is of liijht wood. Tho longer darts, Buoh as thoso used in Sumatra.'laro made from a harder and heavier wood, usually tho long spikeB taken from the palma. These aro left thicker towards the point than at the other end, so aa to counterbalance th« weight of the conical piece of pith there affixed. This pieoe of pith, the broadest part of whioh is but veaf little less than the bore of the blow-tube, is absolutely necessary for the forcible propulsion of the dart. - Aa it does not fit tho tube precisely, there is necessarily some escape of force. For this reason when very hard shots are desired a small pellet of cotton or other suitable fibrous material is p~ut behind the dart. Tho great aeoret in making Jtho darts is to ensure that they balanc...

High though our opinion ia of the sugar beet as a crop of exceeding promise for oolonial fanning, we have every faith that from Eorghum the colonial farmers can got o- Btill more valuable and certain jotuin. The family of the sorghums is very numerous, and, although all of them are undoubtedly of tropical origin, they aro ?wonderfully hardy. If they are sure of one condition; viz., the warmth of a summer of, Bay, live months, with a aorui-tropical heat s during that timo, any one of the varieties . can be grown to perfootion. Many trials have been made with sorghum in the oolonies, and in parts of New South Wales and Queensland certain sorts of tho family have become so acclimated that they gcow during a suooesBion of seasons, and are out and re-out, and eaten down by cattle and horses, until the thick and handsome sugar-cane like plant becomes like a graBs. This arises from the habit of the plant to throw ofE.BUOkers and s...
