TnE BLACK HAND
In due course we left Lamu, and ten days
afterwards we found ourselies ataspot called
ChaiTa, on the Tana iner, having gone
through many adventures which need not be

At Charra we had a t iolent quarrel with

with all our hired liearers, bolted, stealing
most of tho goods which bud been intrusted
to tliem to iair. Luckily, boneier, the
hail not happened to steal our rifles, ammuni
tion and jiersoual effects, not liecauso of any
dehcac of feeling on their art, but owing
to the fait that they ihanced to be in the
chargeof tbetlve Uaknnlis After tbat'it

This biilbaut sugge-tioi was, needless to

While we were hesitating what todo, th
Masai warrior divw himself up in dignified
faslno i, shook bis sjiear at us, and turning.
I vanished on the farther side of the slope.

while we bung off in the s'ream waiting for

us that there was not a Masai to ls seen an

spot whei o the had recently been encamped,
and that from various indications he judged
that they must bavemovtsl on an hour or so
before, the min we saw having, no doubt,
lieen left to retort Uioii our movements
TbereuHn ne lauded, and hav iug posted a
seutr , inxetletl to cook and eat our even
ing meal This done, ne took the situation
into our serious consideration. Of course, it
was possible tbat the apparition of ths Masai
warrior had nothing to do w ith us, that he
was merely one of a band bent upon some
marauding and murdering expedition against
another tribe. Our friend the consul had
told us that such expeditions were about.
But when wo recalled tbe threat of the
caravan leader, and reflected on tbe ominous
way in which the warrior had shaken his
spear at us, this did not appear very prob
able. On tbe contrary, what did seem prob-
I able was tbat the larty was after us, and
awaiting a favorable opportunity to attack
I us. Ibis being so, there were two things
that we could do, one of which was to go on,
and the othtr to go back. Tbe latter idea
was, however, rejeited at once, it being
obvious that wo should encounter as many
I dangers iiwetreat as in advance, and, be
sides, we had made up our minds to journey
onward at any price. Under these circum
stances, however, r.e did not consider it safe
to sleep ashore, so we got into our canoes,
and paddling out into th middle of the
stream, which was not very wide here, man
aged to anchor them by means of big stones
fastened to ropes made of cocoanut fiber, of
which there were several fathoms in each
canoe.
Here the musquitoes nearly ate us up alive.
and this, combined with anxiety as to our
position, effeitaally prevented me from sleep
ing as tbe others were doing, and somehow,
. in the most unaccountable way, I had sud
I deul beconie nervous. There was uo .ar
ticular nason wb I should be, be ond the
ordinar reasons wbuh surround tbe Central
I African traveler, and Jet undoubtedl was.

kind of unnatural screaming no'e, ami tbe
I wind Ismail to moan plimtivel through tbe
tree-, making a heart chilling inu-ic Al.ove
I was the black bosom of the cloud, and
I beneath me swept tbe black flood of tlie
watei , nnd I felt as though I and tiiith were
utterly alone between them. It was very
desolate
Suddenlv my I lood seemed to fiveze in my
veins and m henit to stand stub Was it
fane, or weie we moving! I turned my
ees to lnok for the other canoe, which should
Iw alongside of us. I could not sec it, but in

came a lui h of the t anoe, a quick llash of a
knife and an awful jell from the Wak wall
w ho was sleeping b in side (the same poor
fellow whose odor had been auunv ing me),
ami something warm s urted into my face.
Inan instant tbe spell was broken; 1 knew
that it was no nightmare, but that w were
attacked b swimming Masai, (matching at
the first weasin which tame to hand, which

also realized that the scheme liad been te tut

thonatural sniuof tbe turrenl), where no
doubt a party of Masai were waiting to dig

European bouse, with a veranda round it,
splendidly situated upon a hill, and sur
rounded by a high stone wall with a ditch on

the top of which we had seen through a gloss
for tbe last two days, but of course without
