                        The Blow-Pipe in North-Eastern Siam.

 

       When  travelling  recently  in  the  province  of  Chaiyaphum, North-
Eastern Siam, I found that the blow-pipe was in common use among
the   villagers.  These  blow-pipes  are  very  simple  affairs. They  are
made out  of  the  bamboo called ruak (Thyrsostachys siamensis). A
full-sized one is about three metres in length, but  much  smaller  are
sometimes used, particularly by boys. The nodes inside the bamboo
culm   are  burnt  out  by  means  of  a  red-hot  iron  rod. There  is  no
inner   tube, mouth-piece  or   any  kind  of  ornamentation. The  darts
are  made  from  pointed  bamboo splints, about 40 c. long, wrapped
round   with   cotton-wool   at  the  blunt  end. As  might  be  imagined
with   a   pole   three  metres  long, the  pipe  is  rather  unwieldy, and
usually  has  to  be rested on a branch in order to get a steady aim. It
is used almost entirely for shooting birds.

       On a recent visit to  Doi  Angka  I  hired the  local  Karens  to  beat
the jungle for me on several  occasions. One  day, after  some  hours
of fruitless tramping under a scorching sun, we sat down to rest, and
I observed the  following  ceremony  performed  by  the  head   beater
times, the leaf cracking into smaller pieces as he did so, but none

       A dried leaf was picked from a bush, held close to the lips , and a

charm whispered to it . Then he broke the leaf  crosswise  five  or  six
