It is a sale rule to allow 20 porters
to carry your personal belongings,
while a caravan of 100 porters-not in
eluding gun boys, head man, tent boys,
cook or Cyce, can carry for. a month
just 1,500 pounds more than their food.

tent boy-although Dr. Itttisford's ok
thibited an inexplicable reluctance to
a beat a swamp for a lion. The cook, of
course, is an important personage.
a Least on the list is the toto, the a0
o prentice boy, whom you see first as he
e totters along under his heavy btrden
e in the rear of the Column. The toto is
not otn the strength of the caravan, but
is hired by a party of five ol' six por

carry water, cook food, etc. Most of
the totos are orphans, "rickety, con
