A FURIOUS ELEPHANT CHARGE

spoiled his acute power of scent. To my joy I heard the rustling of the grass grow fainter; again I heard it at a still greater distance; at length it was gone!

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography.
Samuel White Baker (1821-1893) was an English engineer and author. At the age of twenty-four he went to Ceylon, where he soon became known as an explorer and hunter of big game. With his wife he explored the region of the Nile River, and later discovered the lake now called Albert Nyanza. These explorations in Africa are a part of the thrilling story of the discovery of the sources of that great river and of the opening of that region to civilization. Upon his return to England, Baker was knighted and sent to Egypt. Later he explored and hunted in Cyprus, India, Japan, and the United States. He is the author of Wild Beasts and Their Ways, True Tales for My Grandsons, and The Rifle and the Hound in Ceylon, from which "A Furious Elephant Charge" is taken.
Discussion. 1. Tell briefly the story of the charge. 2. To what does the author compare the growl of the elephant? 3. Why did the author feel more helpless in this adventure than in previous dangers? 4. How do you think he felt when the elephant had failed to find him, and pushed on? 5. What qualities do you think a good hunter must have? 6. You will enjoy reading "Toomai of the Elephants" in Rudyard Kipling's Second Jungle Book, and reporting the story to your classmates, reading aloud parts that you think are most interesting. 7. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: arrested; jungle; reverberating; interspersed; -margin; crevices; inspection; respective; compact; velocity; rendered; whip-thong; concealment; momentarily; acute, 8. Pronounce: often; ponderous.
