KING LEWANIKA’S STATE BOAT
Royal Craft is 100 Feet Long, Carries
Monster Elephant Emblem, Court
Jester nad Musicians.
“While traveling in Rhodesia,”
writes a contributor in the Wide World
Magazine, “I managed to get a glimpse
of King Lewanika’s state barge. The
chief of the Barotse is a flue fellow',
but I w'as much amused one afternoon
to see him going out for a row attired
in a top hat and a gaudy dressing
“Soon after the rains commence the
Barotse valley is flooded and natives
migrate to the sandy belt some miles
away for the season. The king al-
ways makes the trip in the royal barge,
an enormous craft about 100 feet long.
In the center are two compartments,
both covered in, one being the living
room and the other the sleeping quar-
ters. On the roof of one of these com-
partments is erected a monster ele-
phant, as a sort of kingly emblem,
while on the other stands the court
Jester, who, on this occasion, amused
the populace by pretending to hunt
and shoot the elephant. A band of 20
musicians were accommodated on the
barge. In addition to whom there were
50 or 60 paddlers and a host of bailers,
for the barge was by no means water-
tight. To the accompaniment of weird
music and barbaric song the huge craft
was propelled along on its journey, the
