Embroidery Designs from the Royal School of Art Needle-Work.-Figs. 1 and 2.
See illustrations on page 500.
N Fig. 1 we give in full working size the quaint design for a border which is illustrated in the mantel valance on page 468, Bazar No. 27, of the current volume. The coloring is purely conventional, and therefore depends on the color chosen for the ground. It is worked in solid embroidery with silks. The running vine is best worked in a lighter tone of the ground color, with perhaps stems and outlines in Japanese gold thread. The small sprays have light green for the foliage, and pale pink, or primrose yellow, or any delicate flower tint that best harmonizes with the surroundings, for the blossoms. Fig. 2 is a graceful border which can be used for various decorative purposes. It is intended to be worked in outline stitch. A sachet and brush case to match for the toilette table, illustrated

A Ceylon Fishing-Boat.
HE Parawas, or the fishermen of Ceylon, form a distinct class by themselves. They are a sturdy, industrious race, and lead a hazardous and exciting existence, battling with the surf which breaks heavily over the reefs by which the island of Ceylon is almost entirely surrounded. The boats in which these fishermen pass a great part of their lives are of very peculiar construction. They are hewn from a single log, generally about thirty feet long, and not over eighteen inches beam. They are kept from capsizing by an outrigger, which is a log of wood as long as the boat, lying parallel to it about twenty feet away. The outrigger is held
in place by a couple of bamboo poles, which are curved above the water so as to offer no resistance by dragging. In the event of a heavy squall, when the outrigger is not sufficient to balance the pressure on the sail, a member of the crew acts as shifting ballast and perches himself on one of the bamboo poles. This is called a “one-man breeze,” and is exciting work. A “two-man breeze,” when two of the daring fishermen become ballast for the frail craft, is a time of serious danger. The construction of these outrigger boats enables them to sail over the reefs, and driven before a fresh gale at a furious and exciting pace, to pass safely through the foaming, dashing breakers to the waters of some placid bay, where cocoa-nut-trees form a graceful fringe along the shore. The speed attained by these Cingalese fishing-boats is something marvellous. They have been known to sail fifteen or twenty miles an hour, skimming over the waves with the velocity and lightness of a bird, under the skilful management of the Cingalese fishermen.
