THE ARROW.-Owing to Mr Cushing's absence in Florida, the publication of the second part of his paper on the arrow has been unadvoidably delayed.

[blocks in formation]

A few fragmentary references are to be found among the writings of explorers, early Australian historians, missionaries, and others at different times in regard to figures drawn upon trees and upon the ground by the aboriginal inhabitants of this continent, but so far as I am aware no attempt has yet been made to classify these drawings or to give a detailed description of them. As I have been recording and describing with some measure of success the rock pictures* of the Australian aborigines, it seems fitting that I should supplement my researches by a short paper on pictures cut or painted upon trees or delineated upon the ground in various ways by these people.

In treating of this subject it will be necessary to divide it into two parts—one dealing with the earthen figures of different kinds, the other describing the devices drawn upon trees. Before proceeding to describe the drawings seen by myself under these two divisions it will be interesting to make a few selections from the books of early Australian writers and others in regard to these works of native art observed in different parts of the continent, both for purposes of comparison and to show their wide geographic range.

Drawings on the Ground

These drawings consist of several kinds. (1) Some are outlined by laying down logs, bark, or bushes to a certain height and then covering them with earth. This was no doubt done because the natives had very primitive tools for digging; in large figures raising a considerable quantity of earth would require much time and labor, especially if the ground were hard or clayey. (2) Others are formed entirely of loose earth heaped up into the required shape. A modification of this form of drawing was observable on the Bora ground at Gundabloui, described by me, where there were two human figures, a man and a woman, roughly modeled in raised earth ; then a sheet of bark was cut into human outline, showing the arms, legs, etc., and this was laid on top of the raised earth.* (3) Another kind of drawing consists of figures of men, animals, and devices in various patterns † cut into the surface of the ground, a nick or groove from two to three inches wide and about two inches deep being cut in the turf along the outline of each. These grooves were cut with tomahawks or with flat pieces of wood on which an edge had been formed. (4) Others again are merely drawn upon the sand with a stick.

The earliest authentic account of native drawings on the turf with which I am acquainted is that contained in Mr J. Henderson's work. In describing a Bora ground near Wellington, New South Wales, he says: “A long straight avenue of trees extended for about a mile.

On one extremity of this, the earth had been heaped up, so as to resemble the gigantic figure of a human being extended on his breast, while through the whole length of this sylvan temple a variety of other characters were observed rudely imprinted on the turf.” Mr Henderson states also that “the devices on the turf bore a strong similitude to the lingen of the Hindoos, and that he "recognized several hieroglyphics which seemed also to represent under different forms the same symbol which the Hindoos have selected in order
