J Major I'owoll Cotton ln hls descrlptlon of hls travels In euatorial Africa. tells 1 in this way of "is diseovery of a cemeterj' ! for elephants. He writes as follows. "We Ieft the Tarash Valley and struck I ln a northeasterly dlrectlon to the foot of a range of hills. along which were ! many bracklsh pools surrounded by rtvld green grass and wlth QUIte a number of duck swimmlng on the surface. Now. in all my Journeying through elephant countr-. I do not think that I had ever come across a skeleton of one of those beasts for whose deaths the guides could n'ot account, and on no occaslon dld j I ever see two skeletons together. Here I I was surprised to flnd the whole country ! side studded wlth remains. I thought at nrst that some fell disease had attacked 1 a vast fierd but on queslioning my guide the said: 'O no, this ls the place where the eliphants come to dle. We often come here to plck up the ivory of plaees like fhese from the Swahlli traders One man. In particular. told I me that far away to the east of I.ake , Rudolph he had come upon one of these elephant eemeteries. and ln a few days , had cnlle-ted more Ivory than hls caravan ' could carry. but I had always regarded 1 these stories as fables. till here under my on eyes was the proof of their truth. " Confound If" growled Closeman: " I dropped a dlme ln that weighlng machlne instead of a penny." " Ha. ha!" chuckled hls buffoon friend: " I guess thafs when you tlpped the scales."
