qualities to be cultivated are jo and suppleness and a elicate perception of balance. Stiffness is unpardonable, and it is a great mistake to offer a dull resistence to the stress of assault instead of yielding to it and cultivating an elastic and aggressive recovery. The first thing that, must be learned is the art of falling without shock or injury. The natural man usually falls on a joint—i.e. either on the base of the spine, the elbow-joint, or the wrist. Thus injury, is caused. In the §. method of falling, the violence of the shock is taken by ads of muscle on the arm, leg, or oot. Figs. 1 and 3 show the shock taken by the arm. Fig. 2 shows how a ju-jitsu, throw depends entirely on position, and balance, and not on strength; Fig. 4, how a man's balance may be ăiţă. without coming within range of his fists. The other illustrations depict various movements and methods of defence and attack, thus:–Fig. 5. To counter a blow from knife or fist, dive down to a kneeling position, press suddenly against the groin, with the whole weight of the o: at the same time pulling away the man's leg, held just behind the ankle. Figs. 6, 7, and 8 show the shoulder throw. Opportunity serving you, twist yourself in under your opponent's centre of gravity. Then suddenly, by straightening yourself, you wif rotate him over into position shown, in Fig. 7. . The correct position in falling is shown in Fig. 8. Figs. 9 and 10 show first the escape from a seizure from behind, and, secondly, a sequel disconcerting to the aggressor. A blow on the small bones of the hand will loosen for a moment its grip. The arm is instantaneously seized and twisted into the position indicated in Fig. 10. Pain may then be applied at leisure. Figs. 11, 12, 13, and 14 show the critical moments in a ju-jitsu defence against a knife. Following on a square parry the wrist is gripped and twisted. Step in under the man's extended arm, and as your hips come well under the arm, reach up, and with a firm pressure (applied, with the stiff edge of the hand) roll over his triceps. His arm, thus attacked in two places, will give to your twist. #. body must follow the twist into position shown in Fig. 14, and thence to the floor. In Fig. 14 you have but to kneel on his elbow-joint to cause his grip of the knife to relax. . The knife can then be secured. Fig. 15. !. as in boxing, the combatants eep, in continual motion.

At the very, moment of his fall (Fig. 18) the lady has put her foot, upon the man's side, and is, in the act of breaking the elbow-joint across her shin. The reader is advised, however that the complicated nature of many ju-jitsu movements, renders the practice of them undesirable until the beginner has grasped the simple elementary principles upon which all of them are based.

Ju-Ju, a name given by West African negroes to any fetish, whether an idol, or a magic rag, or anything else used as a charm. The word also denotes witchcraft and whatever is regarded as supernatural. The “Long JuJu' of the Nigerian Aros, was a sacred shrine (and equally the oracle of the shrine), held in such high regard that pilgrimages were made to it from great distances. It was the scene of human sacrifices and other savage rites.

Julian, whose full name was FLAvius CLAUDIUs JULIANUs (331-363 A.D.), surnamed the Apostate, was the son of Julius Constantius, and nephew of Constantine the Great. He and his elder brother Gallus alone of the imperial family were spared by Constantius II. when on his adcession he massacred all the descendants of Constantius Chlorus by Theodora. In 355 Julian was aslowed to live in freedom at Athens, and in , the same year was invested with the dignity of Caesar, and given the government of the provinces beyond the Alps; he was also married to Helena, Constantine the Great's youngest child. In 357, he gained a great victory, over, the Alemanni, and invaded their territory in that #. and also in 358 and 359. e fortified the island at Lutetia §§ where he usually lived, and built baths there (ruins near the Musée Cluny).

After spending some time in Antioch, he set off to invade Persia in March, 363; he crossed the Euphrates and the Tigris, and took of his position before the walls of Ctesiphon, the Persian capital. A treacherous Persian nobleman persuaded him to march inland to meet the king, Sapor; but he was forced to retreat, harassed by the Persians, and was shot in

His most interesting work is The Caesars, or The Banquet; a great work, Against the Christians, is lost. The whole of his works have been edited by Hertlein (Teubner Series, 2 vols. 1875–6); The Caesars, by Hersinger (1741) and Hazlen (1785).

Julius II., GIULIANo DELLA Rov FRE (1443–1513), was nephew of Sixtus IV., and was chosen o (1503) . A great fighter and successful politician rather than an ecclesiastic, he recovered Romagna from the Borgias, and devoted all his energies to the re-establishment of the papal sovereignty and the extinction of, foreign domination in Italy, With this purpose he entered the League of Cambrai (1508) with the Emperor Maximilian and Louis XII. of France against Venice. On the submission of the republic, he formed the Holy League, which included Venicé, Spain, , and . England, and was directed against Louis XII. and his occupation of Naples. Eventually the pope's armies drove the French back over the Alps. With all his unecclesiastical militarism Julius was an enlightened atron of arts and letters.

SERRA (1713–84), Spanish Franciscan missionary, the founder of the California missions, born on the Island of . Majorca. “Junipero” was his clerical name, assumed by him when he became a Franciscan. He went from Spain to the City of Mexico §o was a missionary to the Sierra Gorda tribes of Indians (1750–69), was placed in charge of the missions of Lower California (1769), and in the same year, at San Diego, founded the first of the missions in Upper California—the territory which forms the present State of California. He subsequently founded other missions §§§ that of San Carlos, at what is now Monterey (1770), and met with much success in his work among the Indians. See Helen Hunt Jackson's Father Junípero and the Mission Indians of California and G. W. James's In and Out o the Missions of California (1905). Junius, LETTERS OF. On Nov. 21, 1768, Junius's first letter o: in Woodfall’s Public vertiser, the last on Jan. 21, 1772, in which year the letters were reproduced in two volumes. George Woodfall compiled an edition containing 113 extra letters in 1812. Many were not by Junius; others by him are excluded. Woodfall did not know Junius, but he affirmed that he was neither Boyd nor Francis, who had contributed to his paper. With the signature ‘Britannicus,' Francis defended Mansfield and the king against the attacks of Junius. In 1813, Taylor wrote that Dr. Francis and his son were jointauthors of the letters, and, in 1816, that Francis was the sole author. Francis emphatically denied the authorship. ‘Crito” wrote to George oodfall in 1821, saying that he possessed the most of Junius's manuscripts, and used a seal, which Junius had done. The discoverer of “Crito” will probably unmask Junius. His last authentic letter, after 1772, appeared in 1774. Lord Camden wrote of it to Garrick that "Junius has given Mansfield another stab in the back in the Morning Chronicle.” A second
