PURSUED BY WILD ELEPHANTS
Death of a Wounded Bull Saved the
Hunting Party.
"I wa8 kneeling, while ray men lay
flat on their fnceH," writes C. G. Schil
lings in hlH "With Flashlight and
Rifle," of an elephant hunting Inci
dent. "I sent two more bullets into
the male elephant. The whole herd
then gathered around an old lemale
elephant and broko awuy in a quick
Hhuillc. Since they turned to the
right I enjoyed the grand sight of
twenty-four elephants passing at a
difltnnco of nbout 450 feet. The
wounded malo passed a llttlo nearer
to mo and I could not refrain from
firing at him once more. The whole
herd stopped, took the young ones
into their midst, looked around and
sniffed the air.
"They discovered us, and, led by
two females, they came to attack us.
Tho situation beenmu very critical,
for in tho long run tho animals were
bound to overtake us. I iled as fast
as my feet would carry me in tho
wnko of my men, who were running
away from tho animal at a right angle.
They know, as I did, that tho ele
phant's sense of sight is weak and
that our only chance of escape Iny in
changing, from tlmo to time, tho
direction of our flight.
"We did not dare look around, but
hurried on in breathless haste. The
thundering, dull noise of tho pursuing
elephants came nearer and nearer.
Then suddenly a piercing, trumpet
like sound was heard nbnvu the dull
noise. Turning around I saw tho
wounded animal falling Into a sitting
posture and tho rest of tho herd in
wild flight away from us."
Comanche Counting,
A peculiar fealuro about the Co
manche language is tho method of
rounting. A Comanche will count up
to 10 in tho 1, 2, 3. l, 5, (i, 7, 8, 9, 10
method, but there ho stops. Ho docs
not use cloven but instead ho counts
it as "10 and 1 more," and so on, un
til ho reaches 19, whloh he pro
nounces 19.
He then pronounces 20, but starts
in with "20 and 1 more" until he
reaches 29, which he counts .29, then
starts in with 30, like he did 20, and
counts to 39, and so on all the way
up.
Counting is the most difficult thing
to learn in tho Comanche language.
In fact, by the tlmo a person has
learned to count in that language ho
has pretty well mastered it.
As there is no alphabet in the lan
guage, the only way to learn it is by
word of mouth. Any attempt to write
it in the English alphabet would be
absolutely fruitless, as the proper pro
nunciation could not thereby be trans
mitted. Lawton Democrat.
It Looked That Way.
An Irishman and his mother-in-law
were crossing tho Atlantic. They
were both seasick and the mother-In-law
died. According to marine cus
tom they wrapped tho body In canvas
and In the absenco of pig Iron to
weigh down the body, a bag of coal
was attached. Just as they were
about to cast the body into tho deep
I'at, Mifllclontly recovered, came on
deck, and seeing the preparations,
a.-kod:
"And what aro you doing?"
"Well," said the captain, "Pat, wo
are burying your mother-in-law, and
tho weight, you know, sinks tho body
lovi. down, down."
"I know where she's going nil right,
but does she have to take her own
coal';" was Pat's question.
Her Love.
"But I don't love you," objected the
young woman.
"Then, why," howled the Indignant
vouth, referring hastily to divers mem-oran-lu
in his pocket diary, 'did you
oat a total of sixty-five pounds of
sixty-cent candy I bought you during
the past year If you didn't love me?"
"Because," she 6aid, with a rapt re
pression on her lovely features, "I do
love candy,"
