While Parker Gillmore was in Gaea Land he was one day taking an after noon rest, when Snnday, his faithful Zulu guide, came hurrying into the in closure, his countenance fairly shining with pleasurable excitement He had found a black rhinoceros asleep in an open glade not far from the camp, and without waking the beast had hastened to his master. Mr. Gilmore donned his shooting" clothes and set out eagerly in searcn of the long desired game. lie describes the fray as follows:- Our course led us through heavy timber till the more open lands were reached. These were skirted through grass and brush almost up to my hips for a distance of about 200 yards, when myattendant en joined upon me .the strictest silence. From the expression of his countenance I felt sure that the game was not far distant, and I was not without fear that the foolhardiness of my man might bring me closer to the dangerous animal than was desirable. Soon we halted and listened. All was silent to my ear except the occasional utterance of an unknown bird a rhi noceros bird, as afterward appeared. A short farther advance rewarded us with a sight of the feathered stranger, which was about the size of the English starling. Every few seconds it ascend ed about twenty feet, uttered its call and at once returned to its perch. Just then I became aware of a new sound. It resembled the heavy breath ing of a large animal when asleep. Sun day called my attention to it by placing his hand beside his ear, but I had al ready heard it. My guide again motioned me to follow Mm, and I followed for several yards. Then another halt took place. Sunday was all excitement. Still he did not lose his self possession, for by pantomimic action he expressed a wish that I should substitute new percussion caps for those already on the nipples of my rifle. That there was danger enough I was thoroughly convinced. There was neither rock nor tree near that could afford the least shelter if my aim was faulty and the rhinoceros chose to at tack us. However, it was a case of "in for a penny, in for a pound." I indicated to Sunday that I was ready for the fray. He broke with a sharp, quick movement a branch of a bush, and almost at the same instant the rhi noceros stood before me, not fifteen yards distant. The first action of the huge, unwieldy beast was to turn his head to the wind ward. This movement prevented my getting the shot I desired, and I waited for perhaps one or two minutes. Then the ponderous head came slowly around. I . raised my rifle, made due allowance for the shortness of the range and pressed the trigger. The usual crash ing sound announced the striking of the bullet, and then began a scene which beggars description. . . ' From the moment the rhinoceros was struck it commenced spinning around without altering materially its locality, at the same time squealing in the shrill est tones. This movement may have been the result of the concussion of the bullet on the brain, or it may have arisen from a desire to discover from what direction it had received the in jury. While this performance lasted it was impossible for me to put in the second barrel, but at last the motions ceased and the screams subsided into long drawn breathing. The wound was mor tal, but I wished to put the creature out of its misery as soon as possible, and at the first opportunity fired again. The result surprised me. Tho rhinoc eros rushed forward for ten or twelve strides. The pace, for so cumbersome a brute was astounding. Then suddenly the whole animal machinery failed, and tho animal fell dead, I believe, before the carcass was stretched upon the ground. I was uncommonly well out of the fray, but I resolved for the future to leave black rhinoceroses alone when out in the open, with no cover within reach. Repartee In the Classroom. A member of the Harvard class ot I860 is responsible for the following: The elucidator of the mysteries of chemistry was then Professor Job Cook, a very sedate man and never intention ally guilty of a joke. One day, in"a recitation, he said to n student, "Mr. Slack, how do you slack lime? The student, supposing tho pun upon his name to be intentional, answered quick as a flash, "Cook it, 6ir." Of course tho class roared, but in stead of enjoying tho apt repartee the professor took it as a personal affront and reported Mr. Slack for a reprimand. Boston Herald. Origin of Domesticated Dogs. The Eskimo dog is derived from the wolf. Doubtless the first dogs which were trained to servo mankind were the jackals of Asia, which are to this day very intelligent and docile when tamed. There was a kind of dog kept by the an cient Egyptians which was evidently obtained by breeding from a slenderly built species that is wild in Africa at tho present time. Interview in Wash ington Star. Keep Oleanders Cool. Keep oleanders in a cool, light cellar or room during the winter months, where the temperature is a few degrees above freezing point. It will be found that plants thus cared for blossom more freely during the summer than those wintered in a warm sitting room. . It is half hardy and will stand without injury five de grees of frost.
