About this work

Lettering

Where the natives have a good "blow out" for nothing. Dyak boys in the wilds of Borneo taking lessons from the tribal chief in the use of the blow gun. Poison darts are blown out with deadly accuracy, this being the only means of "shooting" animals for food. The chief in the picture struck a small apple from a distance of 150 ft. Bears lettering on typed slip pasted on verso, and stamp "Photo supplied Central News"
