Abstract: 
Small Spanish trade. The fabrication of bricks is the only local industry in the field of Granada. The dirt is transported on the backs of men. The method for molding the bricks is primitive. The drying is done by sun. The bricks are cured in ovens. Swimming. Demonstration of rescue by E. Meneveux, champion of France from 1902 to 1922. The mannequin with entirely functioning joints weighing 61 kilograms is released by a hole of three meters. The rescuer dives and brings the mannequin back to the surface. The rescuer holds the shipwreck victim from the back, making it impossible to restrict him. Zoology. The Penguin. The common, or macrophenus, penguin is the same size as an ordinary duck. Its wings are lacking feathers. Consequently, it cannot fly. They nest in caverns, the cracks of cliffs, and deep burrows. These birds live in large troops in the polar regions but during their periodic migration they advance South. Travel. Eze (Alps-Maritimes). The small village of Eze is built at the summit of a rocky cliff. Certain parts have the aesthetic of old fortresses. The roads are narrow and winding. Almost all are staircases. Superb terraces dominate the surroundings. Many little roads disappear into archways. The houses leaning one against the other seem to be just one structure. A type of inhabitant of the region. Ways and customs. The Chocos. An Indian tribe inhabiting the virgin forests of Central America. Nothing has changed the savage ways of these Indians. Their way of life is primitive. The principle occupation of the men is the felling of trees. The women take care of maintaining canoes.
