One day, however, they dashed ihcad and came upon a tribe of giant ipes, which immediately took to the :ree tops with the most incredible speed and agility. From their lofty perch they broke off limbs and hurled -hem at the invaders with dangerous orce and accuracy, all the time "talk ing" to each other in a strange, hoarse voice, sounding for «ill the Vorld like a man with a bad cold. Efforts were made to capture some specimens, but they were too cunning and wary for the most ingenious traps tnd baits. Their senses were so acute hat they would not approach within r.any yards of any object that had ver been touched by human hands. Col. Pierson shot two or three, which îe has stuffed and placed on exhibi ;ion. He is firmly convinced that this 3 the much sought-fop missing link hat connects man with the monkey.
