I took with me my two servants, Dubi, a civilized Dayak, and my Chinese cook.
A Dayak goes on the war-path more for the sake of the heads he may get, than for the honour and glory of the fighting.
I know well that Dubi and his little Dayak sweetheart were almost heartbroken.
Generally, though, there is precious little fighting, as the Dayak attacks only when his victims are unprepared.
Here also was a fort with its cannon, with a Dayak or Malay sergeant and a dozen men in charge.
As is well known, the Dayak women all wear rings of brass around their waists.
The Dayak dogs are fearful cowards, and I was told that they run away at the sight of a wild pig.
In the evenings he sometimes joined a group of Dayak youths and would start to air his opinions.
The tradition of the manufacture of man out of wood instead of clay is thoroughly in keeping with an origin purely Dayak.
