HUNTING BIG GAME
IN EAST AFRICA Leopard Hunting Alone in Bechu analand By Percy Selous OME years ago, 1 found myself stranded in Beeh uanaland, whore I bad followed a force of Irregular cavalry, raised by Col. Me thuen, for operat ing, should the exi gency arise, against fgT (h« Tnufui Boers. whose filibustering raids across the border were settles worse and worse. To cut my story short, however, and •et down to a fast series of single handed leopard kills, after followlns the Dragoons up as far as Mafeking to no purpose, I returned to Kimber ley and the Orange river. I conceived the idea of constructing a raft and thus transporting my few necessary effects, camping on the banks as In eltaatlon led me, or. as I fancied the locality favored sport. I had had too much experience among floating logs whilst lumbering in America not to feel at home at this hind of work; •nd all in all, though I did not travel Car. I spent one of the most exciting trips 1 ever had. All along either aide of this flne river Is a wide belt of “walt-a-blt" thorns and bush tim ber. on which lovely green beetles played in great profusion. I caught ■umbers, every one of which brought me In 3d In Cape Town, for Jewelry purposes. I had seen beetles set np In a similar fashion In Rio de Janeiro and so bad an eye to possible busi ness; as also, we uBed to get alligators teeth down in Alabama and Florida, but these creatures have got so scarce ■ow that it hardly pays to hunt them. Having got everything fixed on my raft, and as the river hereabouts was familiar to me, I had no difficulty In making a landing, as I had proposed some 20 miles further down, passing the ford to Hope Town on my way. Among other things I had with me a hammock and a poncho which I had used out In the Banda Orientate, both of which, besides being of the greatest use. went Into very smell compass. After taking a cup of coffee without milk and a snack or two of spring bok. I literally turned In. with my carbine Cislde me and my dog curled up at y feet, to be lulled to sleep by sounds be familiar as those heard on a sum mer day at home. Blinded by a Sand Storm. An the sun rose it speedily dissi pated the river mist, and a little way pat on the veldt and beyond the tim ber, it was as sultry as ever. I could epy some small specks away to the eouthward. and as a fresh bit of veni son would be an agreeable change, I started after what I knew would furnish me therewith, If 1 could man age to circumvent them. This was not particularly difficult, for I could keep myself covered by one ant-hill or an other, and I got my buck all right, sending the rest bounding away with tremendous Jumps. The ominous darkening of the horizon had not es caped my notice, but almost before I was aware of it the hot sand came ■tinging like so much small shot against my face. In such cases, the only thing to be done is to throw yourself flat on your chest and bold your breath till the hot blast has blown over. The sand storm did not last many minutes, but the thunder storm Immediately burst in such a way as It only does lu South Africa, and I speak from experience both of this, as well as other parts of the world. It was over almost as soon as It came, nnd for a short space the ■andy veldt looked like a sheet of water, which, however, was sucked up In no time, the sun bursting forth In all Its splendor and drying me, drenched as I was, before I could get my buck -back to camp. After skinning my buck and making the hind portions Into ham, and get ting a meal of fresh meat. I set out along the bank of the river to see if I could hit upon any leopard spoor. I bad not gone far before I came to the remnants of a porcupine. appear to have a great partiality for the flesh of these animals, and as they are common enough along the Orange river, it doubtless accounts for the presence of their persecutors. 1 hunted for the rest of the day with- Touched Heart of Marshal Mew York Server of Eviction Papers Moved by Tragedy of Which He Was Chief. Thirty little children sat on cheap Wooden benches In the second-story room at 11 Suffolk street the other 4ay. Every one of them was ragged. Moot looked as though they had not bad enough to eat. But they were bright-eyed and Alert And not for a mo out finding any more signs, although I felt satisfied that there were some leopards in the neighborhood, so I could only postpone my search until the morrow. In the morning I got afloat once more, and dropped about four miles down to the place I bad turned back from the day before. This did not occupy long, and I was soon fast again In a kind of back water, with ray traps once more on dry land. I was eager to follow up the leopard, which I was confident had gone down, not up. the river; in deed, I had hardly proceeded a quar ter of a mile before I found pug marks, and quite fresh ones, too, where he had gone down to drink. This time the heavy rains had not washed all trace of spoor and scent away, and my dog was able to pick it up easily. Seeing that my carbine was all right and everything in its place to my hand, I followed “Snap" with some difliculty, for I did not want him to come to an untimely sad, which might not be improbable If I was unable to keep him back some where within bounds. Following the Leopard’s Spoor. The spoor led along the bank for some distance close to the river, at which the leopard had occasionally hatted, either to drink, or to watch for a stray fish; for these latter they will scoop out with the dexterity of a raccoon, as I myself once saw. In fact, they will eat almost anything that moves—young birds, and for the matter of that old ones, too, when they can surprise them. A cat which hag run wild at home is a fair exam ple of what the leopard Is on a very much larger scale. The dog now came to a point at the foot of a tree, and after some search, for the foliage was very luxuriant, I could distinguish the leopard lying full length along a branch, his head be tween his paws, his eyes being Just discernible, and that was all. I 'could not get a good shot at him, the angle was too acute to fire with safety at his head, and unless I got directly under him I could not see him at all, whilst the limb he was stretched out upon practically protected him at all vital points. Now and again he would just crane over a little and then draw back before I could get a proper sight, making all the time a snarling, purring noise. Under the circum stances it would have been risky to have attempted a shot, so I was com pelled to wait until he gave me some sort of a chance. To have had him come tumbling down wounded was not a bit to my fancy. First Shot Brings Him Down. Once or twice I raised my weapon, only to lower it, feeling it was safer to wait. On a sudden he raised his head, as if some Bound at a distance had arrested his attention, for he gazed right away into space. This was my opportunity—not a very flne ono certainly, for there was quite a net work of small branches intervening— but I got a pretty fair sight and let him have It. Down he came almost before I could Jump to one side, with a thump that would have stunned him, one would imagine, even if the bullet had not smashed his jaw and gone out through the top of his head, bursting an eye In its course. He was as dead as a door nail, and a beautifully marked full-grown young male, his teeth being perfect. As I was only about a mile from camp. I got hla skin off at once, and taking the skull want ment did their attention stray from the white-bearded old rabbi who was teaching them Jewish prayers, Al though the smeary little plcttorea on the walls and the myriad of noises of the roaring East side street must have been a constant temptation. And then the door opened and City Marshal Las arus stepped In, dispossess warrant in hand, says the New York correspond ent of the Cincinnati Tlmea-Star. The back and dressed the skin there and then, before it should get covered with flyblows. I lost no time, however. In getting back to the spot where I had killed him, for it struck me there might be something more than I knew about in his having had his attention diverted from myself and the dog. So I cast about once more, still going along the rlVer, letting ‘Snap." who was well up to the work, do the hunting, whilst now and again I added a brilliant beetle to my collecting box. Passing two or three gullies without making anything further out, I began to think that it must have been the whistle of an antelope that had attracted the leopard’s notice. He showed, how ever, the same intentness of gaze as I remembered In a jaguar I once killed under somewhat similar circum stances, and whose dying roar brought a second one on my track in less than no time, giving me a stifflsh scuffle. It lx in cases such as these that the sci ence of woodcraft comes In handy, careful notice of surrounding signs and actions usually enabling one to come to a correct conclusion. I had been keeping fairly close to the river bank, for I held to my theory that there was another leopard not far from where I shot the last; so I turned about, after e couple of miles, and worked back along the margin of the bush, near the veldt, carefully beat ing any likely-looking spots. Half way or so back was a dense mess of thorns AND OVER WE BOTH WENT IN A HEAP. with a lot of rock and boulders, look ing a very likely place to hold sach game. I went to the veldt side to reconnoitre, and there immediately found fresh pug-marks, not only of one, but of three, leopards; evidently those of an old one and her cubs. This at once accounted for the de meanor of the one I had got. and as a leopard with young, or for the mat ter of that any animal almost in such circumstances, requires extra care in tackling, I called the dog to heel, whilst I cogitated a bit what course to pursue. Examining the tracks, I put the cubs down aR half grown. I also made a detour of the clump of bush and satisfied myself that the game was at home. Returning to the spot where I had first marked them, I followed them in slowly, “Snap” be ing taken up with a piece of string. He soon commenced to get very ex cited. and I could myself smell the taint which always hangs around the lair of the carnivora, be they birds or beasts. The spoor was easy enough to keep, as the path had been used many times, and the leopard, dragging her prey along, had beaten it down. I had my carbine ready for a rapid shot, for I felt sure we were coming close to, and had hard work to keep the dog from breaking away. Luckily the wind was in my favor, and all at once I came right in sight of the leopards, the old one and two cubs, almost as large as she was, basking in the sun in an open space in the glade. I don’t think she saw me, as from where I stood I was completely hidden In dense foliage, but she stared hard in my direction, half rising to her feet, the tip of her tail twitching from side to side, or, more correctly speaking, beating the ground. It was as pretty a sight as I had ever seen, these beau tiful cats, but I had not time for such thoughts. One of the cubs attempted to play with the bobbing tail, and this seemed to irritate her, for she turned and gave the offending young ster a tap with her paw that sent him sprawling. In doing so she gave me •truggllng little congregation of the synagogue hadn't been able to pay the rent. Their few pennies were needed to keep their own root trees and give their little ones a meager fare. The old teacher stood silent, with bowed head, as the poor furnishings were ripped from the place and stacked in the street below. Tears trickled down his beard. The children carried the tid ings through the squalid neighborhood and in a moment the street was choked with shrieking, gesticulating, weeping men and women. They a flne broadside and I fired, dropping her at once, though she scrambled to her fore feet in an instant. I could see that her hind parts were para lyzed; she was shot through the spine; and as she turned to gnaw the wound I quickly got another cartridge in and hit her through the neck. Getting the Cubs. But this time the two cubs had re covered from their 'surprise, and as the old leopard appeared to be done for I gave one of them a bullet In the chest, the other turning tall and scampering off Into the bush with “Snap” (who had got loose) at his heels, whilst I stepped Into the open and let the one I had wounded have another ball, catching him in the ori fice of the ear and killing him In stantly. As I approached them the old one rolled over, and I was about to fire at her again, when I noticed that her eye was already glazed, and It would only be wasting ammunition. After a hasty glance of admiration I left them as they lay and hurried after the yelping terrier, who from the sound appeared to have come to a halt, though I could bear no snarling. Before, however, I could catch up, the leopard must have made another start. The scrub was thick just here, and the everlasting “wait-a-bit” thorns retard ed my progress considerably, besides punishing me not a little. Still I pushed on into the open veldt just In time to see the two making across for the timber on the other side of the bend in the river. I was beginning to feet a bit winded, and was not sorry when further angry yelps and growl ing showed that the cub had again been brought to bay. Getting up as quickly as possible, I found that the dog had been having a rough time of It. He was scored badly down the side, and instead of- being a white terrier was a ghastly rod one. though for the time being it did not appear to inconvenience him much. He was vigorously harking and jumping around a lot of loose boulders, among which the leopard had evidently taken refuge. I could not, however, induce him to go in. and although I have had several good terriers for this kind of shooting none of them cared to go to ground after such game. I began to fear I should have to give him up, but got together a lot of the driest herbage I could find, and making a couple of squibs by extracting the powder from two cartridges, I went to work to try and make him bolt, as his cover was not very large. Cut ting as long a stick as I could find, I took a page out of my pocket diary and rolled the squibs in it, binding them to the thin end of the stick, which I bandaged thickly round with dry grass and leaves for a yard or more, and then pushed it In where the leopard had entered and ignited it well all around, also heaping more dry stuff about tho opening so as to make as much smother as possible. The smoke soon began to escape from the crevices, though the leopard did not appear to take any notice of it; but as soon as the fuses began to fizz and sputter, It was more than he could stand, and out he dashed, almost up setting me in his rush. I had, how ever, picked up my carbine and fired at him, just as he was disappearing into the cover. 1 distinctly heard the pat of the bullet and w&s about to follow, when I saw that the poor dog demanded my attention, so picked him up. The scratches were ugly ones, and I could see that if 1 did not at- begged the marshal’s men for mer cy. As each bit of the poor furnish ings appeared they redoubled their outcries. The rabbi, no longer erect and venerable, but a poor, old, grief strlcken man, hla eyes red with tears, his hands shaking, moved among them, trying to repress their emotion. Marshal Lazarus was moved by the agony of this, perhaps the most pov erty-stricken congregation in all New York. He went to the old rabbi and handed him a little money. “That’s to tend to them at once I might' lofil him; I therefore carried him back to camp and washed, stitched, and dressed his wounds. I returned after wards, to try and follow the leopard, but could not find any further traco of him, except blood marks. I there fore went and skinned the other two, and made up my mind to leave the cub I had wounded until the morrow, I tracked him up next day and found him dead, about a quarter of a mile from where I had fired at him. This reminds me of an escapade 1 had with one of these creatures some time previously, further south. As is so frequently the case, I had been much disturbed during the night by prowling animals, which I found out were leopards. I was exasperated by the loss of my best dog, and made up my mind, if possible, to get a line skin and avenge his death at one and the same time; so making a hurried breakfast, and leaving my two Kaffir boys in charge of the Skerm, I set out with the only dog I now bad left. The spoor, which was plain enough in the sand, led right away towards the river, which on either side is bor dered for a quarter of a mile or so with “wait-a-bit” thorns and under brush. After going a mile or mors my dog showed special eagerness, and pulled up at a tree, the bark of which was all scored by the claws of leop ards and was evidently used by these continually for stretching their talons. A lot of porcupine quills also lay around, showing that the leopard had recently made a meal, of which I was glad, for I thought I should be more likely to find him lazy and lying up, and hence easier to manage. A little further on I came to a kloof or raving which I had to descend and ascend. Attacked by the Savage Beast Before I reached the top, the dog began barking and I hurried on, as well as I could, over the loose stones, for I did not want to lose my only remaining dog. He, however, came yelping back, just as I gained the top of the bank, and at the same time I caught sight of the leopard, which was making across the open for a patch of thorns a couple of hundred yards distant. I was somewhat out of breath from scrambling over the un even ground, but, taking as careful aim as I could, I fired. I knew I had hit him all right, even if he bad not stopped and bitten at the wound, but the shot was too far back as well as too low. At the same instant he caught sight of me, whilst I, not relish ing his looks, hastily pushed in an other cartridge. I had not my trusty "Winchester” then, or the leopard would not have served me as he did. The weapon I was using was a con verted Enfield carbine, which, though a splendid shooter, only took one shell and required capping. I could not get the cap on before he was upon me, and over we both went in a heap—l undermost. He got my left arm be tween his teeth, and I could feel his fangs crunching, but I seized my long hunting knife, and managed to get it under his chin and gave a frantic gash which almost cut his head off. In the meantime my dog had re gained his composure; since he had seen two of his comrades flattened out by leopards he had often turned tall, but he was very useful in track ing them. I had rolled the skin up and was just about starting back for camp, when the dog again attracted my attention, acting as though he had picked up a fresh scent; and although I felt pretty sick, stiU I could not re sist the temptation and followed him, first of all hanging up the skin on a thorn bush. The dog held on and I followed as well as I could for per haps another mile, fortunately along the wooded ground the best part of the foie. so that I was shaded to some extent from the burning sunbeams which under ordinary circumstances would have caused me no inconven ience, but now almost prostrated me. I doubtless had lost considerably more blood than I Imagined, but the sudden renewed barking of the dog put new life into me and I hurried on. The leopard had hurried on to some rocky ground, where he had evidently lo cated himself. As he would not prob ably leave bis stronghold for any dog, I sat down and rested a while. I also examined the breech of my carbine and arranged things as well as I could, so that no repetition of the last "con tretemps” should occur. The dog was working at a crevice in the rocks in which I had calculated the leopard was ensconced, and I cautiously ap proached to investigate. I could, how ever, neither hear nor see anything at first, but after a while, as my eye sight got accustomed to the gloom, I made out two balls of fire. They might have been one yard, they might have been 50 yards away, I could not tell—that did not signify—and taking steady aim between them, I let go. 1 The report was so deafening that I could not have heard any other sound , had there been one, but the "eyes” i had gone out when the smoke cleared ! away and all was still. After waiting a while, I cut a limb or two as straight ; as I could find, and splicing them into 1 one long one, pushed the pole up into the recesses of the aperture, and with- j drawing It, after twisting it around against some soft substance, found,! sure enough, leopard’s fur on the end. 1 I now felt no hesitation about going in, though this was more easily said than done. I could with difficulty squeeze myself through the narrow opening, and to do so caused me ex cruciating pain. Once through, how ever, I had more room, and soon reached my quarry, which I got at last into the daylight, not a little glad to be out of the business so well. I then had to skin her —a female, and doubtless mate to the one I had killed in the morning. Then returning to where I had left the other skin I made tracks for the wagon.

PINCHOT TO SUCCEED ANGELL Chief Government Forester Likely to Be Named Head of Michigan Uni versity, It Is Baid. Ann Arbor, Mich.-r-A name that Is being favorably discussed on the campus as a suitable successor to Dr. James B. Angell as president of Mich igan university, is that of Gifford Pin chot, chief forester of the United States. When the name first came up for discussion it was favorably re ceived by almost every member of the faculty, regardless of whatever other Gifford Pinchot. preferences they may have had for other candidates. Said one man, who is at the head of one of the depart ments: “In my mind, Mr. Pinchot Is one of the likeliest men that has been named; in fact, in my mind he is the likeliest man that could be named as Dr. An gel’s successor. Mr. Pinchot is broad gauged, strong, with backbone to put through any needed measure and to see that the measure is maintained afterward. A man exceedingly af fable and courteous, and, above all, a man of diplomacy. "Mr. Pinchot is a man of the day and age, and of the caliber that will keep abreast of the times, and he will be one of the foremost men in the public eye for years and years after most public men of to-day are laid away on the shelf, as past their pub lic usefulness. He is a man of strong character, just such as is needed at the head of such an Institution as Michigan when President Angell shall lay down the duties of office.” Mr. Pinchot is highly educated, and has served the government as spe cial commissioner to foreign countries. This training has had a broadening ef fect upon a man naturally broad in his ideas, and he seems to-day to be the most logical man for the vacancy that will occur at Michigan when Dr. Angell shall retire from active admin istrative duties.
