As the case against Dun-ant is
being worked for -the murdor of
Misses Lamont and Williams in
ban Francisco, public sentiment
would not be satisfied with a ver
diet other than guilty, justice can
not be too swift in ridding society
of such a desperate enemy. If, on
the other hand, he is a victim of
oiroumstances he is very unfortu
nate and is to be pitied. The force

A DANGEROUS FOE.
Tho Terrific Charge of the Ungainly
The author of "Discovery of Lakes
Eudolf and Btefanler had shot a zebra.
and his men were making ready to cut
it up, when two rhinoceroses appeared
in the distance. Apparently the firing
of the gun had disturbed their nap and
made tnem thoroughly angry. .
Though more than four hundred
paces off, the rhinoceroses swerved
aside when they saw us, and then
dashed upon us with the speed of race
horses. As usual, my black compan
ions took to their heels, making for a
solitary tree some distance off. it was
hopeless for me to think of reaching it.
and there was not so much as a blade of
straw for cover anywhere. And behind
the dead zebra, which would have been
better than nothing, three of my men
were already crouching.
There was nothing for it but to brave
ine situation out; so 1 knelt on one
knee, the better to take aim, and, with
my elephant gun in band, waited to fire
till 1 could hope to kill. It seemed a
long tune before I could cover the
shoulder of either of the huire beasts.
and I knew any other shot would be
useless. The result was that I did not
pull the trigger till one of the animals
was only some eight or ten Daces off.
it staggered and fell, but the next
moment was on its feet again. It was
not killed, but its ardor was cooled, for
it turned away, followed by its com
panion, twice tt seemed about to fall,
and I did not think a second shot would
be necessary; but It got awav with un
diminished speed, and, though we fol
lowed it for some distance, we lost it.

sixty-one nails and two bundles of fag-

an ax and the other with a bill hook,
says the London Telegraph. Mr. Craw
ford, the city solicitor, acted as wood

ceremony took place at the law courts
in the presence of a number of ladies
and gentlemen. For six hundred years

Pollock, explained to the company that
though now the tdca of rent was some
thing paid in hard cash, originally It
was some service or thing rendered,
and in former days when lands were
granted by great lords and knights to
tenants it was on the promise to fur
nish horses, men and so on. In process
of time these services came to be ex
