SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 January 1914

SOME SALUTATIONS. Tho prostration and tho ealaam, sal utations that many Orientals use, aro only more pronounced forms of tho bow. So there is a connection between the ombrnco, so common in civilised countries, and tho greeting of a mem ber of tho ICoiari tribo of British Xew Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed nno arm abon this neck ;iiu| stroked him under the chin. Anions tlie Masai and tho TJkerewii it is a mark of respect, to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by .spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom nsciibed to the Tibotans of putting out the tongue by way of salutation. Kubbing noses is quite common ; the Burmese and many tribes of Eskimos, Laplanders, and ^Malays do so. Stranger than any of thc&o customs is tho weeping salutation ihat has been observed among Central South Amer ican Indians. Th's form of greeting occurs too in the Andaman Islands, Ntnv Zealand, and Po'viic-Ma. A l'or tu^uese explorer thus describe':; tho cus tom a;; h,x -;nv it...

The Court had risen for luncheon, and every restaurant in the vicinity of the Law Courts was inconveniently packed; the busy clink of knife and fork, china and glass, offered a philo sophic contrast to the continuous mur mur of subdued argument. The gen eral topic of conversation was Miss Burney's evidence. .The honest way she had stood up to cross-examination was greatly com mented upon and admired; yet a curi ous and unreasonable opinion prevail ed that had John Cott been able to put his last question himself, Angela would have answered differently; this was the hotly-debated topic: was there foundation for a suspicion that Angela took.the necklace? ? ? . .
