" In duo course wo left Larnu, and tea days

At Charra we hod a violent quarrel with
the headman of the bearers wo had hired to
go as far as tliLs, and who now wished to cx
tort largo extra payment from us. In the ro
Bult ho threatened to set the Masai about
whom moro anon on to us. That night he,
with all our hired bearers, bolted, stealing
most of the goods which had been intrusted
to them to carry. Luckily, howovor, they
had not happonod to steal our rifles, ammuni
tion and personal effects; not because of any
delicacy of feeling on their part, but owing
to the fact that they chanced to bo in the
chargo of tho live IVakwafls. After thatjit
was clear to us that wo had had enough of
caravans and of learers. Indeed, wo had not
much lei t for a caravan to carry. And yet
how were we to got on!
It was Good who solved tho question.
"Hero Is water," ho said, pointing to tho Tana
river; "and yesterday I saw a party of na
tives hunting hippopotami in canoes. I under
stand that Mr. Mackenzie's mission station is
on tho Tana river. Why not get into canoes
and paddle up to it?"
' This brilliant suggestion was, needless to
eay, received with acclamation; and I in
stantly set to work to buy suitable canoes
from tho surrounding natives. I succeeded,
after a delay of three days, iu obtaining two
largo ones, each hollowed out of a single log
of some light wood, and capable of holding
Bix people and baggage. For these two canoes
wo had to pay nearly all our remaining cloth,
and also many other articles.
On tho day following our purchase of tho
two canoes we effected a start. In the first
canoe were Good, Sir Henry and three of our
Wakwafl followers; in tho second myself,
Umslopogaas and the other two Wakwnfis.
As our course lay up the stream, we had to
keep four paddles at work in each ennoo.
?rbich meant that the whole lot of us, except
Good, had to row away like galley slaves;
and very exhausting work It was. I say ex
cept, for of course the moment that Good got
Into a boat his foot was on his native heath
and he took command of the party. And
certainly he worked us. On shore Good is a
gentle, mild mannered man, and given to jo
cosity; but, as we found to our cost, Good in
a boat was a perfect demon. To legin with,
ho know all about it, and we didn't. On all
nautical subjects, from the torpedo fittings of
a man of war down to tho best way of
handling tho paddle of an African canoe, he
was a perfect mine of information, which, to
say the least of it, we were not. Also his
Ideas of discipline were of the sternest, and,
In short, ho como tho royal naval officer over
us pretty considerably and paid us out amply
for all the chaff wo were wont to treat him
to on land; but, on tho other hand, I am
bound to say that he managed tho boats ad
mirably. Threo days after our start an ominous inci
dent occurred. "We were just drawing in to
the bank to make our camp, as usual, for the
night, when we caught sight of a figure
standing on a little knoll not forty yards
away, and intently watching our approach.
One glance was sufficient although I was
personally unacquainted with the tribe to
tell me that he was a Masai Elmoran, or
young warrior. Indeed, had I had any
doubts, they would have been quickly dis
pelled by tho terrified ejaculation of "Masai 1"
that burst simultaneously from the lips of
our Wakwafl followers, who are, as I think
J have said, themselves bastard Masai.
And what a figure he presented as he stood
there in his savage war gearl Accustomed
as I have been to savages all my life, I. do not
think that I have ever before seen anything
quite so ferocious or awe inspiring. To begin
with, the man was enormously tall, quite as
tall as Umslopogaas, I should say, and beau
tifully, though somewhat slightly, shaped,
but with the face of a deviL In his right
hand ho held a spear about five and a half
feet long, tho blade being two and a half feet
In length by nearly three inches in width,
and having an iron spike at the end of the
handle that measured moro than a foot. On
. hia left arm was a large and well made ellip
tical shield of buffalo hide, on which were
painted strange, heraldic looking devices.
On his shoulders was a huge cape of hawks'
feathers, and round his neck was a "naibere,"
or strip of cotton, about seventeen feet long
by one and a half broad, with a stripe of
color running down the middle of lc The
tanned goat skin robe, which formed his
ordinary attire in times of peace, was tied
lightly round his waist, so as to serve tho
purposes of a belt, and through it were stuck,
on the right and left sides respectively, his
short, pear shaped si mo, or sword, which is
' made of a single piece of steel, and carried in
a wooden shaath, and an enormous knobker
rie. But perhaps the most remarkable fea
ture of his attire consisted of a headdress of
ostrich feathers, which was fixed on the chin,
and passed in front of the ears to the fore
head, and, being shaped like an ellipse, com
pletely framed the face, so that the diabolical
countenance appeared to project from a sort
of feather fire screen. Round tho ankles he
,wore black fringes of hair, and projecting
from the upper portion of the calves, to which
they were attached, were long spurs" like
spikes, from which flowed down tufts of tho.
- beautiful black and waving hair of the Co
lobus monkey.. Such was the elaborate ar
ray of the Masai Elmoran who stood watch
ing the approach of our two canoes, but it is
one which, to be appreciated, must be seen

all these details of his full dress on the occa
sion of thi3 my first introduction, being, u
deed, amply taken up with the consideration
of the general effect, but I had plenty of
subsequent opportunities of becoming ac
quainted with the items that went to make
While we were hesitating what to do, the
Masai warrior drew himself up in a dignified
fashion, shook bis spear at us, and turning,
vanished on the farther side of the slope.
Hulloa,, hallooed Sir Henry from the
other boat, "our friend the caravan leader
has been as good as his word, and set the
Masai after as. Do you think it will be 6af e
to go ashore r
I did not think it would be at all safe; but,
on the other hand, wo had no means of cook
ing in the canoes, and nothing that we could
eat raw. so it was difficult to know what to
da At last Umslopogaas simplified matters
by volunteering to go and reconnoitor, which
he did, creeping off into the bush like a snake,
while we bung off in the stream waiting for
him. In half an boor he returned and told
us that there was not a Masai to be seen any
where about, but that he had discovered a
spot where they had recently been encamped,
end that from various indications he judged
t.hnt ihov mnst have movVi tm an hnnr or bo
before, mo man wo saw uuving, nu uuuui,
been left to report upon our movements.
Thereupon wo landed, and having pobtod a
sentry, proceeded to cook and eat our even
ing ineul. This done, wo took tho situation
into our serious consideration. Of course, it
was possible that the apparition of the Majai
warrior had nothing to do with us, that he
was merely ono of a band bent upon some
marauding and murdering expedition against
another tribe. Our friend the consul had
told us thut such expeditions were about.
But when wo recalled tho threat of the
caravan leader, and reflected on tho ominous
way in which tho warrior had shaken his
spear at us, this did not apjiear very prob
uble. On the contrary, what did seem prob
able was that tho party was after us, and
awaiting a favorable opportunity to attack
us. This being so, there were two things
that wo could do, ono of which was to go on,
and tho other to go back. Tho latter idea
was, however, rejected at once, it being
obvious that we should encounter as many
dangers in retreat us in advanco, and, be
biiloH, we had mado up our minds to journey
onward at any price. Under theso circum
stances, however, wo did not consider it safe
to sleep ashore, so we got into our canoes,
and paddling out into tho middle of the
stream, which was not very wide here, man
aged to anchor them by means of big stones
fastened to ropes mado of cocoanut fiber, of
which thero wero several fathoms in each
Hero tho musquitoes nearly ato us up alive,
and this, combined with anxiety as to our
position, effectually prevented mo from sleep
ing as tho others wero doing, and somehow,
in the most unaccountable way, I had sud
denly lecomo nervous. Thero was no par
ticular reason why I should be, beyond the
ordinary reasons which surround the Central
African traveler, and yet I undoubtedly was.
If thero is one thing moro than another of
which I have the most complete and entire
scorn and disbelief, it is of presentiments,
and yet hero I was all of a sudden filled with
and possessed by a most undoubted presenti
rf annrouching evil. 1 would not givs
wr.y to it, however, although I felt the cold
perspiration stand out upon my forehead.
In the distance I heard a hippopotamus
splash faintly, then tho owl hooted again in a
kind of unnatural screaming note, and tho
wind lx'gan to moan plaintively through tho
trees, making a heart chilling music. Abovo
was the black bosom of the cloud, and
beneath mo swept tho black flood of the
water, and I felt cs though I and death were
utterly alone between them. It was very
Suddenly my blood seemed to freeze in my
veins and my heart to stand stiiL Was it
fancy, or were we moving? I turned my
e3-es to look for tho other canoe, which should
bo alongside of us. I could not see it, but in
stead I saw a lean and clutching black baud
lifting itself above the gunwalo of tho little
boat. Surtlv it was a nightmare! At the
same timo a dim butdovilish looking face ap
leared to rise out of the water, and then
came a lurch of tho canoe, a quick flash of a
knife and an awful yell from the Wakwafl
who was sleeping by my side (the samejpoor
fellow whose odor had been annoying me),
and something warm spurted into my face.
In an instant tho spell was broken ; I knew
that it was no nightmare, but that we wero
attacked by swimming Masai. Snatching at
the first weapon which came to hand, which
happened to bo Umslopogaas' battloax, I
struck with all my force in tho direction in
which I had seen the flash of the knife. The
blow fell upon a man's arm, and, catching it
against tho thick wooden gunwalo of tho
canoe, completely savereil it from the body
just above tho wrist. As for its owner, he ut
tered no sound or cry. Like a ghost he came,
and likoa ghost he went, leaving behind him
a bloody hand still griping a great knife, or
rather a short sword, that was buried in the'
heart of our poor servant.
Instantly there arose a hubbub and confu
sion, and I fancied, rightly or wrongly, that
I mado out several dark heads gliding away
toward tho right hand bank, whither wo
were rapidly drifting, for the rope by which
we had been moored had been severed with a
knife. As soon as I had realized this fact, I
also realized that tho scheme had been te cut
the boat loose, so that it should drift on to
the right bank (as it would have dono with
the natural swing of the current), where no
doubt a party of MAsai wero waiting to dig
their shovel headed spears into us. Seizing
one paddle myself, I told Umslopogaas to take
another (for tho remaining Askari was too
frightened and bewildered to be of any use),
and together we rowed vigorously out toward
tho middle of the stream; and not an instant
too soon, for in another minnto we should
have been aground, and then there would
have been an end of us.
As soon as wo wero well out, we set to wbf k
to paddle the canoe up stream again to where
tho other was moored; and very hard and
dangerous work it was in the dark, and with
nothing but tho notes of Good's stentorian
shouts, which he kept firing off at intervals
liko a fog horn, to guide us. But at last we
fetched up, and were thankful to find tha
they had not been molested at olL No doubt
the owner of the same hand that severed our
rope should have severed theirs also, but was
led away from his purpose by an irresistible
inclination to murder when he got tbo chance,
which, whilo it cost us a man and him his
hand, undoubtedly saved all the rest of us
from massacre. Had it not been for that
ghastly apparition over the side of the boat
an apparition that I shall never forget till my
dying hour the canoe would undoubtedly
have drifted ashore before I realized what
had happened, and this history would never
have been written by me.
THE MISSION STATIOX.
We made the remains of our rope fast to
the oth er canoe, and sat waiting for the dawn
and congratulating ourselves upon our merci
ful escape, which really seemed to result
more from the special favor of Providence
than from our own caro or prowess. At last
it came, and I have not often been more
grateful to see the light, though, so far as my
canoe was concerned, it revealed a ghastly
sight. There in the bottom of the little boat
lay the unfortunate Askari, the sime, or
sword, in his bosom, and the severed hand
griping the handle. I could not bear th
6ight, so hauling up tho stone which had
served as an anchor to tho other canoe, we
mode it fast to the murdered man and dropped
him overboard, and down he went to the bot
tom, leaving nothing but a train of bubbles
behind him. Alas! when our time comas,
most of us, liko him, leave nothing but bub
bles behind, to 6how that we have been, and
the bubbles soon burst. The hand of hia
murderer we threw into the stream, where it
sank. Tho 6word, of which tho handle was
ivory, inlaid with gold (evidently Arab
work), I kept and used as a hunting knife,
and very useful it proved.
men, a man having been transrerrea to
my canoe, wo once more went on about 11
o'clock. Just aswc were thinking of halt
ing, as usual, to rest, and try to shoot some
thing to eat, a sudden bend in the river
brought us in sight of a substantial looking
European house, with a veranda round it,
splendidly situated upon a hill, and sur
rounded by a high stone wall with a ditch on
tho outer side. Right against and over
shadowing the house was an enormous pine.

The Mission Station.
Knowing that it marfcea the site or tho mis
sion station. I was tho first to see tho house,
and could not restrain myself from giving a
hen ty cheer, in which tho others, including
tho natives, joined lustily. There was no
thought of halting now. On we labored, for,
unfortunately, though tho houso seemed
quite near, it was still a long way off by
river, until at lost, by 1 o'clock, wo found
ourselves at tho bottom of tho slope on which
mo uuuuuig stood, liunmng tho canoes to
tho bank, wo disembarked, and were just
hauling theni up on to the shoro when wo
perceived three figures, dressed in ordinary
English looking clothes, hurrying down
through a grove of trees to meet us.
"A gentleman, a lady, and a little girl !'
ejaculated uoou, alter surveying the trir
through his eye glass, "walking in a civilize
fashion, through a civilized garden, to men
us in tins pince. Hang mo if this isn't th
most curious thing we have seen ret."
Good was right; it certainly did seem odd
and out of. place more like a scene out or a
dream or an Italian opera than a real tangible
fact; and tho sense of unreality was not
lessened when wo heard ourselves addressed
in good broad Scotch, which, however, I can
"How do j-ou do, sirs?" said Mr. Mackenzie,
u gray haired angular man with a kindly face
and red cheeks; "1 hope 1 see ypu very well.
My natives told mo an hour ago they spied
two canoes with white men in them coming
up tho river;-60 we have just come down to
"And it is very glad that we are to see a
white face again, let mo tell you," put In the
lady a charming and refined looking person.
We took off our hats in acknowledgment,
and proceeded to introduce ourselves.
"And now," said Mr. Mackenzie, "you must
all be hungry and weary; so come on, gentle
men, come on, and right glad wo are to seo
you. Tho last white that visited us was Al-
phonse you will see Alphonse presently ana
that was a year ago.
Meanwhile we had been walking up the slope
of the hill, tho lower portion of which was
fenced off, sometimes with quince fences and
sometimes with rough stone walls, into Kaffir
gardens, just now full of crops of meahos,
numnklns. riotatoes. etc. In the corners of
these gardens were groups of noat mushroom
shaped huts, occupied by Mr. Mackenzie's
mission natives, whoso women and children
came pouring out to meet us as we walked.
Through the center of tho gardens ran tho
roadway up which wo wero walking. It was
bordered on each side by a line of orange
trees, which, although they had only been
planted ton years, had in the lovely climate
of the uplands below Mt. Kenia, the base of
which is about 5,000 feet above the coast lino
level, already grown to imposing proportions,
and were positively laden with golden fruit.
After a stilllsh climb of a quarter of a mile or
so for the hillside was 6teep wo came to a
sDlendid aulnco fence, also covered with
fruit, which inclosed, Mr. Mackenzie told us,
asoace of about four acres of ground that
contained his private garden, house, church
and outbuildings, and, indeed, tho whole hill
top. And what a garden It was! 1 have al
ways loved a good garden, and I could have
thrown up my hands for joy when 1 saw Jilr.
Mackonzia's. First thero were rows upon
rows of standard European fruit trees, all
grafted; for on the top of this hill the climate
was so temperate that very nearly all the
English vegetables, trees and flowers flour
ished luxuriantly, even including several va
rieties of the applo, which, generally speak
ing, runs to wood in a warm climate and
obstinatelv declines to fruit. Then there
were strawberries and tomatoes (such toma
toes!) and melons and cucumbers, and indeed
every sort of vegetable and fruit.
"Well, you have something like a garden!"
I 6aid, overpowered with admiration not un
touched by envy.
"Yes," answered the missionary, "it is a
very good garden, and has well repaid my
labor; but it is the climate that I have to
thank. If you stick a peach stone into tho
ground it will bear fruit the fourth year, and
a rose cutting will bloom in a year. It is a
Just then we came to a ditch about ten feet
wide and full of water, on the other sido of
which was a loopholed stone wall eight feet
high, and with sharp flints plentifully set in
mortar on the coping.
"There," said Mr. Mackenzie, pointing to
the ditch and wall, "this is my magnum opus;
at loast, this and the church, which is the
other sido of tho house. It took me and
twenty natives two years to dig the ditch and
build the wall, but I never felt safe till it was
done; and now I can defy all the savages in
Africa, for the spring that fills the ditch is
insido the wall, and bubbles out at the top of
the hill winter and summer alike, and I id
ways keep a store of four months' provisions
in the house."
. Crossing over a plank and through a very
narrow opening in the wall, we entered into
what Mrs. Mackenzie called her domain
namely, the flower garden, the beauty of
which iE is really beyond my power to de
scribe. I do not think I ever saw such roses,
gardenias, or camellias (all reared from seeds
or cuttings sent from England) ; and there
was also a patch given up to a collection of
bulbous roots, mostly collected by Miss Flos
iie, Mr. Mackenzie's little daughter, from the
surrounding country, some of which were
surpassingly beautiful. In the middle of this
garden, and exactly opposite the veranda, a
beautiful fountain of clear water bubbled up
from the ground, and fell into a stone work
basin which had been carefully built to re
ceive 1 whence the overflow found its way
by means of a drain to the moat round the
outer wall, this moat in its turn serving as a
reservoir, whence an unfailing supply of
water was available to irrigate all the gar
dens below. The house itself, a massively
built single storied building, was roofed with
slabs of stone, and had a handsome veranda
in front. It was built on three sides of a
square, the fourth side being taken up by the
kitchens, which stood separate from the house
a very good plan in a hoc country. Xa the
center of this square thus formed was, perhaps,
the most remarkable object that we had yet
seen in this charming place, and that was a
single tree of the conifer tribe, varieties of
which grow freely on the highlands of this
part of Africa. This splendid tree, which Mr.
Mackenzie informed ns was a landmark for
fifty miles round, and which we bad ourselves
' seen i or mo lost lorcy luilut of our journey.
must have len somo S00 feet in height, the
trunk measuring about 10 feet in diameter at
a yard from tho ground. For somo seventy
feet it roso a beautiful tapering brown pillar
without a single branch, but nt that height
splendid dark green boughs, which, looked at
from below, had the appearance of gigantic
fern leaves, sprang out horizontally from tho
trunk, projecting right over tho houso and
flower garden, to both of which they fur
nished a grateful proportion of shade, with
out lcing so high up offering any impedi
ment to tho passage of light and air.
"What a beautiful trool" exclaimed Sir

kenzie. "I call it my watch tower. As you
see, I have a ropo ladder fixed to tho lowest

going on within fifteen milus or so, all I have
to do is to run up it with a spyglass. But you
must be hungry, and I am sure the dinner is
cooked. Come in, my friends; it is but a
rough place, but well enough for these savage
parts; and I can tell you what wo liavo got

As I was following him, and wondering
what on earth ho could mean by this, thero
suddenly appeared through the door that
opened on to tho veranda from tho house a
dapper little man, dressed in a neat blue cot
ton suit, and shoes mado of tunned hide, and
remarkable for a bustling air and most enor
mous black mustaches, shaped in to an upward
curve, and coming to a point for all the world
like a pair of buffalo horns.
"Madame bids me to say that dinner is
sarved. Messieurs, my compliments;" then
suddenly perceiving Umslopogaas, who was
loitering along after us, and playing with his
battleax, he threw up his hands in estonish-
ment. "Ah, mais quel homme!" he ejaculated
in French, "quel sauvago affreux! Take but
note of his hugo choppare and the great pit
in his head."
"Ay," said Mr. Mackenzie, "what aro you
talking about, Alphonse?"
"Talking about!" replied tho little French
man, his eyes still fixed upon Umslopogaas,
whose general appearance seemed to fascinate
him; "why, I talk of him" and he rudely
pointed "of ce monsieur noir."
At this everybody began to laugh, and Um
slopogaas, perceiving that he was the object
or remark, frowned ferociously, for he had a
most lordly dislike of anything like a personal
