Sandals.—Since revising the preceding pages (243-4) dealing with the Pacific sandal, I have seen a figure and description of an interesting sandal of Cordyline fibre from New Zealand by Mr. 0. T. Mason.† Another article is thus added to the long list of those common to every main division of the Polynesian Race. It is interesting also to note that this Ethnologist detects in the border loops for the lacing a similarity between the Polynesian and a Korean pattern.
