all was the torn body of the man
who shot the rifle.
He was still hanging from the
tree head down, having been firm
ly caught by both feet in a fork. I
mentioned the advisability of div

let drop in the river but this they
would not do as they were afraid of
the imburus or spirits of the dead
which they declared would forever
haunt that spot. Of course there
was nothing to be done but to wait
for some other chance. And even

rifle without much trouble and it

You defeated the big elephant of

laughed and told him nothing of the

our people were there and some are

there no fight? I told him the fight
was nothing, he looked at me
strangely. (The savage was at a

think something had happened. But
I went away with my private locker

Troubles on the Wall.
So long for the present Herr Shiff
I said and the good old man gave
me a great handshake. He had been
a daddy to me and knew me better
than I knew myself. I soon arrived
at our new place and had a great
talk with Sinclair. It was a charm

commodious, with large verandas,
and was well fitted in every way for
what it was intended to be. My ca

to the assortment and this being
done, my outfit traders, etc, swung

pulled out beautifully and I watch

I took care to say nothing to the
agent Sinclair of the fight although
he tried hard to sound me. I knew
the cause of my troubles hung
against the wall in his sanctorum.
He was not a timid man, but this
was a fine specimen of an Orkney
