In the Friendly and Society Islands salutation is made by.tho rubbing of noses together, something as ponies greet eiich other, and thc salutation is returned by each friend taking the hand of the other'and with it rubbing his own nose and mouth , . In . the Pelew Islands it is customary to grasp the foot in friendship, andi in Burmah, according to[a high autho rity, people place the month and nose closo to each other's cheeks and draw iii the breath, as if inhaling an odor divine, saying not "Give me a kiss but "give me n smell."

New Mode of Steering Rowing Boats. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 10 March 1877

New Mode of Steering Rowing Boats. THE .art of rowing os practised mt the present time seems likely to be the " subject of an innovation of a far more radical nature than even the introduction of -the sliding-seat .proved to be. In many parts of America the idea of building an outrigger -of the slightest possible description, and then putting into it. a dead weight in the person of .a coxswain, is thought to be-an odd one, -and on theVbi"oard rivers and spacious lakes of the new world steering is done either in the act of rowing or by mechanical contrivance operated upon by the oarsman rowing stroke. This was the method by -the American crew who came over to .compete with a four-oar on the London water two or three years ago. _ The objection to this mode of steeling on our narrow and often crowded streams is manifest ' enough, and a coxswain who can see where he is going is essential both for the safety and cdmfort of the crew, who, if they are 1» avoid collision, must be continuall...
