A FURIOUS ELEPHANT CHARGE

the whole herd had closed up. In about a minute a dense mass of elephants had collected round the two leaders, and these were all gazing at us. Thinking this a favorable moment, I gave the word, and we pushed toward them through the high grass. A portion of the herd immediately wheeled round and retreated as we advanced; but five elephants, including the two which had first discovered us, formed in , a compact line abreast; thrashing the long grass to the right and left with their trunks, and with ears cocked and tails up, they came straight at us. We pushed forward to meet them, but they still came on in a perfect line until within ten paces of us.
A cloud of smoke hung over the high grass as the rifles cracked in rapid succession, and the five elephants lay dead in the same order as they had advanced. The.spare guns had been beautifully handled; and running between the elephants, we got into the lane that the remaining portion of the herd had made by crushing the high grass in their retreat. We were up with them in a few moments. Down went one! Then another! Up he got again, almost immediately recovering from V.'s shot. Down he went again, as I floored him with my last barrel!
I suddenly heard Wallace shriek, "Look out, sir! Look out! An elephant's coming!"
I turned round in a moment; and close past Wallace, from the very spot where the last elephant lay, came a "rogue" elephant in full charge. His trunk was thrown high in the air; his ears were cocked; his tail stood erect above his back as stiff as a poker; and screaming exactly like the whistle of a railway engine, he rushed toward me throughh the high grass with a velocity that was perfectly wonderful. His eves flashed as he came on, and he had singled me out
as his victim.
