CHASED BY A WILD OSTRICH.
The open veldt lay before us, bathed in
the dew and the lingering shades of early
morning as we mounted our horses for a
ride across country. Before we had gone,
far, however, my companion was sum
moned back by the news of the illness of
a horse, and I continued my ride alone.
As I advanced mile by mile the scenery
grew wilder, and great rocks, just tinged
with the purple of the sunrise, rose ma
jestically on either side. When the road
divided my Basuto pony turned off into a
bridle path which led through a wild
gorge and eventually lost itself among the
rocks at the foot of a hill. The sure
footed little creature started up the side
of the mountain and eventually landed
me at the top. Here I dismounted and
left him graze. We had been out some
hours. Remounting, we followed a half
beaten track on the opposite side from
which we had come, and in a short time
we were at the foot of the hill and on the
level veld once more. Going forward in
to the main road (such as it Was), which
wound round the base of the mountain
quick canter toward
j i s t ar ted off at
j h orne _
j AN AWKWARD PREDICAMENT.
I For some time we went along at a good
! pace, when suddenly I was startled by the
! sight, not far" ahead, of a dock ostrich
j mshlng wildly backward and forward,
j with its black and white wings flapping
' and quivering with rage. 1 pulled up
j with a jerk, for at first I thought th? bird
I was loose on the veld, but on closer I 11 -
j speetion I found that a wire fence was
j between us. Just at this moment I saw
1 on the other side of the camp a hen sit
j ting on her nest, and, knowing only too
j well the danger I was in, 1 paused to
] consider what I should do. A short dis
; tance in front the road ran close to the
: fence, and I knew it would be impossible
; to pass that way. There was nothing for
' j t ^ ut to retrace my steps and follow the
road back round the mountain till It
I Joined tho one by which I had come. 1
" aa not afr aid- f° r it was by no means
an uncommon position in which to find
one's self in the centre of an ostrich
j farming country, and, besides, I felt sure
°f setting away. Accordingly^ I turned
, th e pony's head in the opposite direction
and walked quietly back, hoping to es
cape notice. A few moments passed, and
' I began to think we were safe, when sud
1 denly a strange sound made me look
1 around. To my horror, I saw that in one
! of his wild charges the enormous bird had
caught sight of us, and making frantic
dashes along the fence, which was unusu
ally low, and was not of barbed wire. In
a few seconds he would be over, and then
it meant a race for dear life. My pony,
I knew, was one of the quickest in the
country, and as we had a good start, pos
sibly for a short time we should keep
ahead, but in the end I knewz the ostrich
must easily catch us.
As if by instinct my faithful friend
Scented danger, and after one whis
1
pered word in his ear he was off like the
wind. There was uddenly a crash behind
us, followed by a measured beating
which almost made the ground vibrate
and set my heart thumping. If you
have never heard the "tramp" of an in
furiated ostrich, no words will adequately
describe it; the nearest approach to it
that I can think of is the sound of the
regular "thud! thud!" of soldiers on the
march. There was no mistake; we were
being pursued by a furious cock ostrich
—a formidable foe indeed! Now it was
only a question of time. The pony's feet
' seemd scarcely to touch the ground, and
I bent forward, urging him on feverishly
as I had never done before. Nearer and
nearer came the beating, the distance be
tween us and our strange pursuer grow
ing less and less every second. 1 was
powerless to do anything but hold on to
my flying horse. We were miles away
from any farm in the direction we were
going, and those behind knew nothing
of the terrible danger I was in. Could
! there be no help? Alone on the boundless
veldt, I looked vaguely up into the blue
1 sky.
j \ TIMELY RESCUE THAT COST A
LIFE.
There was a distant shout, and I was
dimly conscious that a short, heavy ker
rie whizzed past me. I dared not stop,
for the ostrich was now but a few yards
behind, and I could almost feel the vibra
tion of its great wings as it skimmed,
half-ilying, half-racing, over the earth.
Presently another kerrie came whizzing
past, and this time it must have inter
fered In some way with the progress of
the great bird, for I could tell it had stop
Iped short; and as the chase was not re
1 sumed I ventured to look hack. My heart
j senied to stand still: my head swam, and
! I had the greatest difficulty to keep my
seat in the saddle. The infuriated ostrich
! had turned and was charging at a Kaffir
' who was coining up from the camp in
: pursuit. The man saw his (langer, and
! excitedly threw kerie after kerrie, which
! passed wide of the mark. Vague ideas
:
i
'
I
!
;
;
;
;
flashed through my mind of going to his
I help—an absurd idea, of course and now
impossible, for the pony had become thor
oughly frightened, and was bolting as
hard as he could go. There was more
; shouting now, and I hoped that others
' had come to the rescue, hut, glancing
I back again, I saw it was too late—ostrich
■ and man had met!
S The Kaffir made a tremendous spring
1 at tlie long neck of the bird, but he was
! too slow, and an awful kick sent the poor
I wretch into the air and dropped him with
a thud upon the earth. Before he had
time to recover—if. indeed, he ever could
—the bird was literally dancing upon him,
and 1 shut my eyes to hide the ghastly
sight. .By this time several Kaffirs and
a Dutchman had come up. and with a
long lasso they strangled it. dragging it
off the prostrate Kaffir at the same time.
1 never knew how I reached home that
day. For days and nights that ghastly
tight haunted me, and I was troubled by
the thought that the man had practically
! given his life for mine, while I had done
nothing even to attempt to save him. His
master, a hard, mercenary Boer, was
mote filled with annoyance at the loss of
the valuable ostrich than with pity for
the man. The unfortunate Kaffir had
only lived till he reached the farm, and
then he succumbed to his teirt'ible injur
ies.—Wide World Magazine.
A SOCIETY LEADER.
"There's that handsome Mips Highfly,"'
remarked the youthful bride; "she's pos
ing as a society leader to-night."
"Humph," commented her better half,
as he noted the young lady's costume;
"looks to me as if she was exposing as a
society leader."—Philadelphia Record.
