like that and never notice it till he
reeled from loss of blood."
Andrea shivered but M'sungo did
not notice it. "They believe," he con
tinued, "that the meat of elephant Is a
colmpound of the flesh of all animals
and that by eating it they acquire all
the leading attributes-the courage of
the lion, the slyness of the jackal, the
gorging capacity of the snake, the eye
might of the hawk by day and of the
felines by night, the industry of the
ant and the homing instinct of the bee.
You see the line? It's endless; and
just because they have more than a
smattering of the qualities they seek,
the superstition will never die."

of water and to feed her a first sand

Leading the march home over the
back trail, M'sungo set a pance that kept
Marguerite at a jogging trot. Andrea
protested but to no avail. M'sungo,
comfortably smoking pipe after pipe,
had withdrawn into one of those male
havens of the mind that remains mar
velously'untroubled by the tongues of
women. Andrea sulked.
*When they arrived at the river,
there being but three natives in their
reduced following, M'sungo promptly
took his place as one of the four pallk

They reached the home craal at the
