I little expected, -when listening
to Artcmus "Wards five minutes
lecture on Africa, that I would
ever be found in its jungles shoot
ing elephants, lions and other large
game. "Ward made a serious blun
der when he said Africa was cele
brated but for one thing, and that
was the rose meaning, as he ex
plained it, the negroes. Much as
lias been written on the subject,
and graphically as many parts of
it have been described, there yet
remains at least as much untold.
I could fill your paper with hair
breadth scapes, personal encoun
ters with the noble kings of the
forest and other equally unpleas
ant and annoying companions;
describe the characters and pecul
iarities of the different nations, the
rivers, lakes and general appear
ance of the country, but will at
present confine myself to
II V I'iiM lllcpliaut Hunt.
One word in regard to Cape Town.
It is about as filthy and undesira
ble a place for a permanent resi
dence as could be found under the
sun. Its population of neatly 40,
000, is composed of about a mot
ley a lot as ver existed in one
place: May lays, Hindoo?-, Mada
gascars, Mozambiquers, Kafiirs,
Hottentots, Arabs, St. Ilelenians
and a mixture of the whole, every
shade of color from white to coal
blacks. On landing you are shouted
at in every imaginable tongue for
the privilege of carrying your lug
gage from the dock to the hotel.
The houses are mostly one and
two stories, built of brick,, stuc
coed and whitewashed on the out
side, with sloops projecting into
the streets, which are with one or
two exceptions, without sidewalks.
There is no system of sewerage,
which accounts for the filthy con
dition of the place.
Jlarrbliiu In the .Iiinale
The morning was clear, with
usual accompaniment of intense
African heat. We starred on the
track, and from that time, with the
exception of a few brief breath
ing spells, we kept up the march
until after 1 o'clock, when we
overtook our game. The sun was
pouring its blistering rays down
on us at about 110 degrees. The
animals were first discovered bj
one of our bushmen, who had
climbed a tree to take observa
tions, and were standing content
edly and on good terms' with each
other in the shade of some large
trees. It recalled to mind my
youthful observations on the first
elephant 1 ever saw, and could
hardly- realre the fact that I was
about to test with lead the capa
city of the elephantine hide.
The First Shot.
After a preliminary rest and
consultation we crept forward to
within about fifty yards of where
the elephants stood. On account
of my leadership I was given the
honor of the first shot. 1 cast my
eyes over the herd and selected
the largest in sight. I raised mv
gun and blazed away, the natives
following with their shots immedi
ately after. Part of the herd,
when the' discovered the condi
tion of affairs, consideied that dis
cretion was the better part of
valor, and rushed away. But
I soon found that I had as
much as I could attend to with
out observing the actions of my
companions, for the elephant that
I had wounded cocked his ears,
elevated his trunk, and with a
loud trumpeting rushed straight
for me at the top of his speed. I
soon found that the condition of
affairs had become somewhat re
versed; instead of me hunting the
elephant, the elephant was exerting
no inconsiderable amount of
Speed la Huutins Me.
I did not stand lonp- on the order
of going, but fled with a speed
that would have won at leust
second pme in a go-as-you please
match By keeping to the lee
ward of htm and dodging among
the bushes, 1 got out of his sight.
He rushed impetuously by me,
over thorn bush and young tree,
perfectly crazed and mad with
rage. Presently he returned on
his own track and after cautiously
following him short distance T
got another shot at him. He
turned and charged again and T
had about the sharpest nice I ever
had in my life. Ho then gave up
pursuit and turned back. T fol
lowed in litP track, which were
covered with blood, and hoon over
took him. 1 tlten prepared for a
desperate encounter, gave him a
shot that broke his shoulder, and
preventing his charging again.
Blood was M reaming from him
and he was hardly able to move.
Game was still in Iris eye. Ap
ptoaching within a few yards of
him 1 gave him two more shots,
and he sank on iiis knees and
"buried his longtu,ksin the ground.
lie made seveial ineffectual at
tempts to arie to his feet, but fell
over lifeless. It was by far the
most exciting hunt 1 ever had.
An E'.nr.-igi-il i:icptianf.
If anyone can imagine a locomotive
chasing him through the woods,
and barely escaping from it, they
can have some idea of the charge
of a wounded and infuriated ele
phant. It is not every man who
has the nerve to hunt elephants,
and few will stand a second charge,
or risk it. To get within reach of
an elephants proboscis is certain
death. Although a cry danger
ous sport it y most exciting, ami I
must say 1 was proud of my vic
tory. When en raged the elephant
stops at nothing. Bush and trees
are no impediment to him, unless
of large growth.
oiue .IIIkIiO TiisUx.
During the battle 1 heard shots
at times front my companions,
who were pursuing the herd, and
soon they came staggering in and
reported having killed two ele
phants a bull and a cow. The
one 1 killed was a large bull, with
fine tusks, which weighed fifty
eight pounds each. The others
were smaller. Cow tusks rately
exceed fifteen pounds. Leaving
the elephants we made our way
back tired and hungry. The next
day we sent for the cart, and the
people went out to dry meat from
the elephants we had killed. "When
the cart came 1 went out with it
and found meat prepared to load
and heaps of it scattered over
the ground. Most of my people
an 1 a host of bushmen were
gorged with eating. J never could
understand how the bushmen Itnd
out that an elephant has been
killed in their vicinity. You will
not see a sign of them, but when
a slaughter takes place they come
with the vultures and hyenas, all
ready to partake of the banquet.
After cutting out the tusks, which
are imbedded in the soft bone of
the head for half their length, we
loaded the cart with meat and re
turned to camp.

A Russian Aerial Ship.
The Progress of Science for
June details a marvelous story of
aerial navigation, on the authority
of a correspondent in Calcutta,
who professes to have received a
letter from Edward Z. Ward, a
Xcw York engineer in the Russian
service, dated at Cashmere. He
stated that the late Czar was long
eniraired in fitting out a .secret ex
pedtfcon to Moscow. The force
engaged consisted of seventy-three
men, who were transported to the
Caspian, as soon as the ice broke
up, in several river boats loaded
with mysterious boes. On reach
ms: a small fort not far from Aster-
abad the party landed, and the
boat.s. each mounted with one or J
two cannon, were drawn up to'
protect the expedition. ork
shops were erected and earthworks
thrown up, the cannon mounted,
and then the vessels disappeared,
the guanl being augmented by
patties in Persian uniforms. The
principal workshop had high walls
but no roof, and within it was put
