THE CHAMPION TERRACE BUILDERS.
I KNOW it is hard to believe, but up in the mountains of northern Luzon some savages wearing only clouts and spears have built the most colossal terraces in the world. The rice gardens of the Ifugaos, who are counted among the Wild Tribes of the Philippines, form the greatest industrial undertaking in the Islands. Tier on tier they rise, like gigantic steps, from the depths of the canyon to the clouds on the mountain top. In the 800 square miles of Ifugao territory, the length of the supporting walls of these terraces is two and one-half times the circumference of the globe, or about 65,000 miles.
