Oriental Statecraft
The part which gesture plays in Ori
ental drama is set forth in a recent
Hindu volume, which says that there
is a fltUng gesture to represent every
emotion. The gesture, in fact, Is de
scribed as deaf-and-dumb alphabet of
the soul. There are nine movements
of the head, corresponding to nine emo
tions, mentioned by one authority, 24
by another; 28 movements of the sin
gle hands, and 24 or 20 of the double
hands, etc. ; also "bands" denoting an
imals, trees, oceans, and other things.
For example, a certain position of the
hands denotes a certain emperor,
caste, or planet. The translator says j
rather naively that only a cultivated
audience can appreciate Indian "ac
tor's art."

rvuKe Peta of Hornbllli.
The yellow hornblll, one of the most
interesting of the species, is a com
paratively fearless bird and is easily
killed. The male Is fond of perching
on the tiptop of tropical trees and
making n noise like a young puppy.
The natives in Africa find young
hornbills easily tamed. They dig the
birds out of the tree nests when quit
young and raise them on milk and
berries In their huts. When grown
the hornblll remains attnehed to its
foster parents and will eat out of the
same dishes. Left free, the hornblll
comes and goes much as does a pet
crow and remains about the hut un
til the first mating season, when it
goes away with one of its kind, rare
ly to return.
