The baboons which frequent this
rocky country are so destructive to the
Block farms that organized raids have
to be made upon them. It Is useless
trying to net a shot at the baboon dur
ing the day, he Is a wily creature and
knows the deadly effects of a rifle Just
as well ns the hunter.
Early In the morning the party leave
the farm and quietly surround the
kranz, or rock, where the unsuspecting
baboons are sleeping. At the first
break of da wo the head baboon Is on
the move, to see that everything Is
right. . He no sooner makes an appear
ance than he Is greeted with a shower;
of lend. In an IiiHluut the whole troop
Is In an uproar. They rush hither and
th'Mier, howling with rase and pain,
looking for a place of escape. Hut few
of them succeed. Directly the hunters
have retired, the blacks, who have
been following up the party, make a
rush for the tails of the baboons.
Sometimes they are In so great a hurry
to secure these that they fall to ob
serve that the baboon Is not (lend and
an ugly, bite or tear Is the result. The
tails are taken to tho magistrate's of
