The valuable work of Messrs. Hose & McDougall on the ‘Pagan Tribes of Borneo“ was published in 1912, and contains an account of the methods of divination practised by some of these peoples. In compiling it the authors had been led to consult Smith's Dictionary of Classical Antiquities, so striking did the parallelism appear between the augural practices of Borneo and those of ancient Italy. And they were not mistaken; the parallelism is even stronger than they suspected, and induced me to write a notice of the book in the Journal of Roman Studies, in order to call the attention of students to the subject. Since then I have again gone carefully through the work, and noted a number of other points in which the habits of the one people remind me of the other. It seems worth while to bring these together.
