They were building the great high
way and railroad bridge over the Quo

till mouth of Auguxt the scene waa a
busy a one as could I conceived. -The
approaches were IkIiik Ailed in by a
thousand native; the ironwork was
being pushed along by .TOO more direct

200 men were unloading the cara of
the working train: 300 elephant, each

have coaxed and reasoned, but It has
done no good. He still deflea me. I
am afraid that If I do not let blm rent
he will make great trouble."
"But there la no time for rest," re
plied the overseer, who was a native
himself. "Thework must be driven;
the bridge must be finished. Tomor

! "He should not go back to work this
1 afternoon. He Is dangerous. He will
j win over our beasts. Hear him growl
; in his throat! Tbo great sahib should
i bo told thnt there Is danger."
Word was sent to the engineer In
chnrge of the works. He was an Eng

and knew the wnvs of natives nnd ele
phants. Some of the beasts and their
drivers had come 200 miles to work on
, the bridge. It was a well known fact
; thnt now and then nu elephant got
homesick nnd became dangerous It not
laid off for a day or two. The engineer

reply went back that the beast was not

I Banga rumbled in his thront and
switched his tall about, and just be

made a whistling noise through, it.
Every other elephant on the works

Four elephants twined their trunk
around an Iron girder and lifted It
from the ground. They beld It sus

let go, raised his trunk and blew a
trumpet blast But few men there had
ever heard the lOta before. They were
men who had bunted the great beast
tn his wild state and had heard tbe
sound from a wounded and enraged el

Industry waa turned Into bell. Three
hundred elephanta were trumpeting at
once. Nearly 2.000 men were running

great beasts broke loose, and Banga
led them all tn hie fury. With one
blow of hla trunk he killed his mahout;
with a second he made a corpse of the
overseer who had called htm a thief.
Then up and down tbe long dirt Oiled
approaches the 300 behemoths raved.
They struck men down as fast aa they
could reach them. Some they hurled
Into the air and others Into the nearby

rolled them down the embankments.
