Tho public mutt feel tome difficulty In
forming a true estimate of tho prowess of
tue African lion from wo numuer or con
fllcttncr statements mado bv different trav-

bo that, whllo each ono has formed nn
opinion from tho behavior of tho particu
lar animals they chanced to meet with, tho
fact tnai every single lion timers ironi an
other In temper and disposition has been
allowed to drop out of sight. That some
lions will make a oolnt of attacking any
human being they see without the slight
csi provocation, aamits oi no aotiot,
while it is at least equally certain that
there arc others that can hardly be forced

and even making one or two sham

After a couple of minutes the brute walked

If this man also had stood still, he would
have been perfectly safe. Again, ahunter
of mine was following buffalo tracks Into it
thicket ; suddenly a male Hon rose out of
one 01 mem nnu snarieu at him ; he had
hardly seen it when another, about three
quarters grown, showed Itself a little nn
one side, and from behind he heard the
low growling of a third. Partly turning,
so as to watch them all, he saw the latter
was a lioness ; and that three cubs, not
much larger than cats, were following
their mother, one of them running toward
him without showing tho least fear. He

described It. fairly danced round unit

still without any movement, for, as he
said, It was a hundred to ouo he did not

It ended by their ultimately retiring Into
tne thicket, and watching him as he clear
ed out. Had he been nervous, or done
anything but remain quiet, there is no
doubt he would not have come out alive.
I lived for many years among these ani
mals, and their very name recalls Innu
merable recollections and anecdotes.
Perhaps the most beautiful sight I ever
saw In connection with them, whs on a
morning I had gono out to hunt with one
bearer ar dawn. I had not gone far from
camp, and my pun was still unloaded,
while I was examining some buffalo
spoor, when, on looking up, I saw my
gun-bearer, who had my cartridges, run
ning away at full speed. Knowing he
must have seen something to frighten him
so, I did not shout, but went to where he
had been standing, a few yards ahead, and
there, sure enough, not twenty yards off,
were a pair of lions t the lioness rolling
on Its back, and striking out at the male's
head with its fore-paws like a kitten,
while he stood majestically above her. 1
stopped u moment to watch them, and It
was well worth It. and then rushed off af
ter my Kaflre to load. The position wns
good, and I might have killed one to a cer
tainty, but when I had succeeded in get
ting him down from the top of a big tree,
and went back, they hail gone. I suppose
they must have got our wind. No doubt
they had been hunting all night, and had
been down to tho river to drink prepara
tory to going t bed.
I do not think the lion rtwrve his title
of king of beasts, though perhaps he is
the most notable looking. Elephants are
decidedly more sagacious, and the black
rhinoceros Is certainly more dangerous,
and cither of the two could kill hlra In a
few moments, with but little danger to
themselves. Indeed, ho cannot manage
an old buffalo-bull, unless ho takes it by
surprise. J
Their favorite food is buffalo and zebra,
preferably the latter, though they general
ly go Bfter the former, as they are more
easily stalked from frequenting the thick
er parts ot the Jungle.
Sometimes, when attracted by meat,
they will come and roar all night within
a few yards of the camp, and cases havo
occurred when they havo attacked It. I
remember one man. a European, who had
to spend the night In a tree watching the
male Hon which bad sprung Into thocinm
and seized a pleco of meat, kindly hiking
uo notice ol the terrified scramble he
caused, and which, after roaring for a lit
tie, was Joined by two lionesses, the three
proceeding to cat all tho buffalo meat in

the other two went to water.

sort, it really Is a very awe-ln'plrlng

The low. warning moan uttered bv them

I know a Dutch hunter, a very power

tho Nkwavuma. He had been unsuc

made no camp-fenoe or other protection,

the night he was awoke by something
catching hold of his 'arm. Thinking
it was a won. ue maae a tremendous

at It with tho disengaged arm. The blow

followed. For instance, an old friend of
mine, a gentleman or undoubted veracity,
once told me that on one occasion he
entered his house about five o'clock In the
afternoon, and ran up-stalrs to his moth
er's bed-chamber, where he saw her stand
ing near tne center or tne room, clad In a
loose white gown and engaged in comb
ing out ner long black hair. He remained
looking at her for some moments, ex
pecting that she would speak to him, but
she did not take notice in any way of his
presence, and neither spoke nor looked at
him. He then addressed her, but. receiv
ing no reply, became indignant and went
down-stairs, where, to his amazement, he
found his mother seated hv the wlndnw
and dressed as usual. It was some years
before he would trust himself to tell her
of what he bad seen, fearing that she
might consider it an omen of approaching
death, and Indeed, though not a super
