Niglit is ii f.ivorito tlmo with almost
all wiltl nninmls for fccdiiif; or moving
about. Especially i3 this tho cao with
thoso African creatures which during
tho day pass their timo in forests or
caves. Elciiliants, particularly, select
the night for feeding, and will then quit
their denso cover, and wander on plains
where they would fear lo show them
selves during daylight. On more than
ono occasion wo pushed HP.voral hours of
the night concealed ai.iong tho brandi
es of a Ireo, In order lo iiavo tint oppor-
unity of watching tho habits of homo
of thoso animals whoso nature it was to
io hidden during tho day.
On tho flrit occasion that wo over
tried this experiment, wo had taken for
our companion a friend, who was neith
er gifted with pationco nor with that
enthusiasm which is necessary. Wo
remained in this treo somo two hours,
our companion, by his frequent move
ments and thu noiso ho made, render
ing it unlikely that w slmnld s-or. iWy
milmal whoso Lcarlng was acute 'x'iie
iright moonlight, howovcr, tliat rend
ers everything by night almost as visl-
blo as by day, tempted ns to venturo on
tliei- ccasions to undertake night ad
cuturiy. And on moro than ono night
wo were awarded by witnessing events
that do not fall within tho o.v:pcrienco
f eveiy pertou.
Ono night in particular wo recall as a
very interesting one. It was an aftor
not.ii lido near tho bush down by tho
involi river, where wo had seen tho
fre-.li spoor of several elephants, that
ii derided upon pacing a lew hours in
a hufo tnv that stood apart from tho
nialii bush and from tho branches of
which a very good view could lie ch
ained of tho ground. For a compan
ion wo selected our usual hunting Caf-
fro, who was always ready for sport,
ml arming him with ono of our guns,
vo then fitartod at ubotit ton o'clock at
night, roachul the treo after half an
lour1: walk, and soon wore Bottled
midst Its branches.
A walk by night in a, country wheio
tlioro aro such animals as liunu, leop
ards, hyenas, sha'.es, elephants, buffa
lo and other formldublo creatures, re
quires considerable caution, for it would
bo excessively awkward to run against
ono of thoso animals, or to turn a cor
ner of a bush, and suddenly find your
self faco to faco with ono of them.
Thero are, too, somo creatures which
mako a practico of following men at
night tho hytcna in particular, as wo
experienced on more than ono occa
sion. Having taken our stations, in tho treo
we waited patiently for a viow of somo
animal. Iiifipitoof its being commonly
considered a "comfortable placo," wo
bellovo that thero Is no seat moro un
comfortable for a length of tlmo than a
seat in a tree. First, it is very hard ;
secondly, it Is impossible to chanjio your
position much ; thirdly, thero Is always
a risk of falling, particularly if you got
sleepy and dozo.and It Is almost impos
sible to llo down, or oven recline, lint
when it oilers a sccuro retreat from wild
animals, It has its advantages.
For fully half an hour wo saw noth
ing, although tho rustling of tho bush
indicated that various animals wero on
tho move. Tho noUcs ono hears at
night In a wild country aro very slngu
Iur, and when heard during tho still
ness of an African night, few sounds
aro moro striking than tho weird howl
or inoiin of tho "strand wolf," or hy
ona. The try al.io of tho jackal Is par.
tlculaily wild, and can Jio hoard from a
very great distance; whilst llio peculiar
notoof various night-birds Is heard as
thoy flit around tho trees in which thoy
discover an Intruder on their domain.
After listening to tho various sounds
that occasionally wero hoard, wo sud
denly discovered several animals almost
under the treo in which wo wero con
cealed. Wo dared not move, for to
move was to mako a noise, and to mako
a noise would alarm the animals, what
ever thoy wero, 1 1 was, thoroforo, nec
essary to get a good view of them with
out moving a proceeding of somo dim
cultyj but wo accomplished it, nnd
fouiid tho creatures were bush-pig
a largo pig that lives entirely In tho
bush and Is about as watchful and cun
ning hs any animal that inhabits Afri
ca, its powcis of lioarlng and scent bo
ing very acute.. It knows quilo well
when any dangor ihiJcatons it; and is
not without powers of defouco, for it
possesses tusks, that will rip up a dog
or a man as though n razor was used.
FRIDAY, JUNE 21,
It was scarcely worth whllo to alarm
any larger animals that might bo near,
by firing nt thoso pigs, so wo wero con
tent to watch thorn as thoy turned up
tho ground, and fed on tho roots they
Suddenly, without any apparent
cause two or thrco of thoso pigs gavo a
sharp grunt, and ran oirinto the bush.
Wo thought they had by their power of
scent discovered our proximity lo them j
but wo shortly lound their alarm was
duo to a much moro dangorous enemy
than man an enemy whoso cunning
was greater than oven that of tho oldest
boar among tho party, and whoso
strength was such, that a full-grown
pig was, compared to him, Ilttlo moro
than n Vat to cat. Tho animal that
caused tho alarm was a leopard.
Whilst wo wero pondering what had
caused tho sudden doparltiroof tho pigs,
wo heard a rustling of leaves and
branches, a sudden rush, a sound as of
struggling, a sharp squeak or two, and
all was quiet again. Wo strained our
eyes to distinguish thu forms of tho vic
tim and Its slayer, as tho two lay half
concealed among tho thick underwood,
At length wo mado out the form of tho
leopard, lying on the body of tho pig.
Tho ferocious animal had adopted Its
usual modo of seizing its prey by tho
back of the neck, and liad succeeded in
breaking tho neel: of tho pig in n very
Hero wa3 a creature well worthy of
our lead, so wo quietly changed our
position to bring our gun to bear on the
leopard. Although apparently fully
occupied with its prey, tho leopard was
still on tho nlcrt, for slight as was the
noiso wo mado in moving, ho rose quick
ly, glanced upwards, and with a grace
ful bound was out of sight before wo
could pull a trigger or oven lake aim.
The pig wo know was dead, so wo de
cided that wo would have a ham or it
boforo long. The leopard had scarcely
Ieftliis prey half an hour, beforo stealthy
steps wero heard approaching tho dead
pig, and soon two hyenas wero busily
employed on feasting on it. The noises
wo made in tho tree alarmed them, but
they wero not to bo balked of their
feast, for seizing a huge pieco of pig,
they scampered oil" to a distance with it.
After finishing this pleco thoy would
sneak up lo the carcass, lay hold of a
fresh piece, and rii3h olfwlth that. Tho
hyenas, between them, nearly finished
tho pig, tho remains wero satisfactorily
accounted for by somo jackals, and
what appturod in tho dim light to bo
ichneumons. The latter fought and
squabbled over tho bones and scraps
like so many hungry dogs, and by day
light wo found scarcely a sign of tho
wild pit;, all that remained of it being

It ia mirprising the amount of animal
life that moves about by night In a, wild
c'liintry. No ono would lor a moment
suspect that in his immcdiato neighbor
hood thero werea multittidoof creatures
which ho never saw, unless ho watched
for them by night. Wohavo seen crea
tures that aro very uncommon roaming
about by night in the most reckless
manner. A few years ago, wo wore
staying at a friend's hoiiio in the coun
try, and having fjocn strango signs on
his lawn, wo watched ono night when
tho moon gave a light in order lo see
what night wauderers visited us. lie
foro long wo observed two little dark
objects moving on tho lawn, and on
coming quickly up lo thorn, wo sur
prised two hedgj hogs, creatures wo
had not seen by day any vIiero near tho
lawn. Upon following up tho trail, wo
found thoy actually lived in somo cover
on the borders of tho lawn nnd within
fifty yards uf tho hoiiio.
At tho tlmo wo saw tho wild pig kill
ed by tho leopard, thero was scarcely
half an hour during which several crea
tures did not pass our post, but tho
greatest excitement occurred just ns tho
day was breaking.
Several times during tho night wo
had heard the Hharp crack of a broken
branch in tho distant forest, and now
and then a shrill sharp cry, both of
which told us that elephants wero not
fur off. To attempt to obtain a shot at
lliein by night would havo been too
dangerous, and unlikely lo result In
success, as the underwood in tho bush
was si) denso, that oven on a bright
sunny day, objects wero scarcely distin
guishable in tbo gloom. Thero was a
probability, however, of these giants of
tho fm'e.-it coming out into tlio open, and
if so, wo might obtain a cho.t at them
from our trees.
II was not till Just before, .sunrise that
the herd of elephants camo noar tho treo
lu which wo wero concealed, and then
they .scorned to scent danger, for Instead
of earning boldly forward they stopped,
and blowing through their trunks, ap
peared to bo carefully scouting tho air.
Whether thoy really smelt danger it is
imposilblo to say, but thoy would not
upproach nearer to tho edgo of the bush,
and wo could not obtain a viow of any
After passing a night In a Uco without
firing a shot, it was Imposslhlo to resist
tho temptation oiTorcd by the proximity
ol thoso elephants, so that as soon as
thero was sulUcIont daylight for us to
see our way, wo entered tho donso forest,
and endeavored to get a shot at ono of
them. Wo soon found that our prcsenco
was quite woll known to theso crafty
animals, for thoy trumpeted and grum
bled as wo approached, and boforo wo
oxpectcd it, a cow olephant, with a calf
charged through tho bush towards us,
Wo had to retreat with all speed j nt one

fresh start, and wo widened tho dlstanco

In a Den of Tigers.
On tho morning of tho second day of
our slay in Providence, writes an ama
teur who Is with n circus for tho fun of
tho thing, I lit n cigar after brenkfast
nnd strolled down to tho circus. On
entering tho mcnagcrlo tent, I discov
ered tho proprietor of tho show seated
on n bench nnd watching the tigor
trainer cleaning tho tigers' cago. Thero
were llvo tigers in the cage, nil royal,'
and tho most tnagnlflcont brutes I over
saw. "How thoso follows would mako
rnlncc-meat of you or mo, did wo ven
turo into their cago," I remarked.
"Yes, if wo went in alone," ho replied;
"but that man has thorn under such
perfect control that I would walk in
thero this minuto without n moment's
hesitation. Would you llko to go in? j
thoro'a no danger." I turned the mat
ter over in my mind for a minuto or
two, nnd then npproached tho cago and
asked tho tamer what ho thought about
tho matter. Ho replied to my inquiry1
by driving all the tigers into one cornor
with his whip, nnd oponing tho door of
tho cago. Tho next momont I stood
faco to faco with theso florco, splendidly
ferocious animals, with only tho tamer
between us. For a fow seconds thoy
glared fiercely at mo as through about
to spring, nnd I clutched moro fierce
ly the latch of tho barred cage. Then
one raised himself on his hind legs
to his full leugth, resting his enormous
paws upon the upper cross-bar of tho
cago. Ho snarled fearfully at me, and
his velvety tail swept backward and for
ward in the mostominous manner. Tho
Jaws of death wero wido opon beforo mo,

tremendous fangs every time thoy did so.
I opened tho door of tho cago and sprang
out as tho keeper's whip descended on
the shoulders of ono who was crouching
for a spring, not being desirous of giving
hhu a ghost of a chanco. Thokcopcr him
