lncr to watch them at work. I neir
ninliontH often take advantaffo of their
sagacity and so save themselves trouble.
1 saw an instance of this up tho coun
try Tho telegruph follows the advance
of tho troops to secure rapid communica
Hon with tho rear So a lino was formed
as tho country was occupied. First u
track was mado by felling ull timber and
clearing ofl any undergrowth, etc., to
about twenty feet In width, hundreds of
men being employed Such trees as wcro
suitable in length and otherwise were
trimmed Into tho required shape for tele
graph poles, anumberof them being piled
at intervals along tho track Then tho
elephants wcro sent to carry tho poles to
the distances thoy were to bo set apart. I
aaw ono mahout conduct his elephant to a
pile of thoso heavy poles aud tell tho In
telligcnt animal to pick ono up. ho then
with a long wand ho had for tho purpose
measured off tho distance and accom
panied tho elephant, whb carried tho polo
to tho place tho mahout indicated '1 hen
I saw tho mahout tell the elephant to go
to the pile aud place them In lino along
the i rut K. at tho same distance apart us
tho one ho had measured Tho man then
lay down under a tree mid went to sleep
In the meantime the noble animal look
up each piece of timber and carried It to
Its proper place In tho lino. I felt so In
terested that I stayed to wituess the
whole proceeding I measured tho dis
tances by pacing and found them all to bo
equal In length and correctly placed llko
tho first one Tho beast then went to his
mahout and gently touched him with tho
tip of his trunk and awoke him. as much
as to say, "All is finished, master, accord
ing to your orders " Tho muhout awoke,
mounted tho elephant and went forward
to continue tho lino in the sumo easy and
I often watched an elephant's motions
before ho would cross a native bridge over
a river Ho is most cautious, puts ouo
foot down gently and presses on tho
plunks to seo that all Is safe and firm
beforo he will venture upon them When
perfectly satisfied of the safety of tho
Btrticturo. and not until thou, ho will
walk over to tho other side Other olo
pliants who may bo in company will stop
and attentively watch tho proceedings of
tho leader When all Is right thoy follow
him without hesltutiou Thoy uro not
without warrant for their caution,
for these native bridgos aro often very
rickety structures, and I saw many of
tliem como to grief during my oxperieuco
of thorn Klophnnts aro bomotimes do
scribed as running, but it is contrary to
their habits to do so. they Invariably walk.
Tho only time I know of their going at a
faster rato is when a wild eiepnant is
hard pressed by shokurrles Kspeciully If
Bllghtly wounded, ho will suddeuly turn
und rush at his assailants, select ono and
try to catch him This is termed charging
Should ho reach tho unlortuiiato hunter
tho elephant would seize him around tho
body with his flexible trunk, whirl him to
the earth, and tread him Into a bloody
mass of llesh
I havo mentioned tho nervousness of
these animals An Instaneo was shown
In tho dilliculty found in making them
draw a light wagon It was considered
that In a level country a bandy t ..
native cart, holding a quantity of stores,
etc.. In addition to a moderate load on tho
beast's buck, would save transport, and
that nioro could bo curried than by merely
heavily loading tho animals Tho bandy
In Hurmah is always druwu by tho long
horned tuine buffaloes or the fine oxen of
tho country So u trial was mado to seo
If tho eiophants would take favorably to
this new depart uro In tho order of things.
A apodal wooden curt was constructed.
Btrongly bulit. with long bamboo shafts
and a capacious body and primitive, solid
woodon whoolH Ono of tho most docllo
and best uutured elephants was selected
for tho ti lut Tho curt was brought up to
him, tho muhout meantime fondling and
coaxing him uud culling him pot names,
at first witii uo promising result Ho at
longtii permitted tho ropo harness to bo
adjusted to his huge person, appearing
very much nstoulshed and foolish all tho
time Ho kept swinging Ills trunk about,
and could scarcely bo held quiet and In
propor position At last all was fixed,
some heavy stones being placed In tho
cart us ballast Tho mahout tried to coax
him to iro forward, but ho would tako a
few steps only und then suddenly turn off
to tho right or loft, trying to roach tho
cart with his trunk Uo did not llko tho
rumble of It nt his tall, which latter t
jKndago ho kept down close to his body
llko u frightened caiiluo
At length by dint of praising him and
kind treatment, bo dragged tho cart a fow
paces onward As tills was thought
enough for ono day ho was released.
Every day for about a week ho was "put
through his paces" until ho was pretty
perfect. and mado uo objectlou to having
tho buudy harnessed to htm nor to drag
tiio cart whenever wanted Then all tho
oiephants woro brought out to witness
the erformauco Tliey looked critically
at their brother In harness, walked around
tho concern uud fell it with their trunks.
When ho started to travel with tho bandy
crvakiug behind him thoy seemed a Vritlo
startled, but after a whllo appeared
reconciled to tho look of tho thing After
