Abstract

[Excerpt from first page]. ... The common arrangement of two more or less bent sticks interlocking at their forks, met with at such widely separated areas as in the districts around Rockhampton and the whole North-West, coupled with the interlocking of a forked with a purposely-cracked stick at Brisbane, may point to a condition of affairs where the ridge-pole has been done away with, the two forked uprights coming into close apposition, while the simple (single-piece) hoops met with on the Tully River and Coast-line northwards may be an imitation accounted for by the substitution or a pliable material (e.g. Calamus, sp.) met with locally in abundance.
