It was even so, Macuinazaliii."
'Then thus do our hearts turn to our

Then came a pause. When Iguosi broke
it, it was in a different voice.
1 do perceive that thy words are, now ns
ever, wise and full of reason, Macumazahn ;
that which llies in the air loves not lo run

As we trave.e 1, inia 100s told us that
there was anotu r pass over the mountains

appeared, loo, tuat ratner more than two
years previously a parly ot Jvukuaua hun
ters had desc. nded this pain 11110 ihe desert
in search 01 ostriches, whose p.uuies were
much prized among tnein for war head-dres
ses, ana that in the course ot their hunt they
had been fed tar from the mountains, and
were much troubled by thirst. Seeing, how
ever, trees on the horizon, they made toward
them, and discovered a large and fertile
oasis of some miles in extent, and plentiful
ly watered. It was by way of this oasis that
he suggested that we should return, and the
idea seemed to us a good one, as it appeared
that we should escape the rigors of the
mountain pass, and as some of the hunters
were in attendance to guide us to the oasis.
from which, they stated, they could perceive
more fertile spots far awav in the desert.
(It Oi ten puzzled all of us to understand
how it was possible that ignosi's mother.
bearing the child with her, should have
survived the dangers of the journey across
the mountains and the desert dangers
which so nearly proved fatal to ourselves.
It has since occurred to mc and I give the
idea to the reader for what it is worth that
she must have taken this second route, and
wandered out, like Hagar, into the desert
If sue did so, th re is no longer anything
inexplicable about the story, since she may
well, as lirnosi himself related, nave been
picked uo by some ostrich hunters before
she or the child were exhausted, and led by
them to the oasis, and, thence, by stages, to
the fertile country, and so on, by slow de
grees, southward to ZUiUland. A. 14.)
Travelins easiiv. on the night of the
fourth day's journey we found ourselves
once more on the crest of the mountains that
separate Kukuanaland from tue desert,
which rolled away in sandy billows at our
feet, and about twenty-five miles to the
north of Sheba's Breasls.
At dawn on the following day, we were
led to the commencement of a precipitous
descent, by which we were to descend the
precipice, and gam the desert two thousand
and more feet away, , . ,-. .'
Here we bade farewell to that true friend
and sturdy old warrior, Infadoos who
solemnly wished all good upon us, and near
ly wept with grief. ".Never, my lords," tie
said, "shall mine old eyes see the like of ye
again. Ah ! the way that Incubu cut his
men down in the battle. Ah! for the sight
of that stroke with which he swept off my
brother Twala's head 1 It was beautiful

another, except, perchance, in happy
We were very sorry to part from him, in
deed, Good was so moved that he gave him
as a souvenir what do you think? an eye
glass. (Afterward we discovered that it was
a spare one.) Infadoos was delighted, fore
seeing that the possession or such an article
would enormously increase his prestige, and,
after several vain attempts, actually suc
ceeded in screwing it into his own eye.
Anything more incongruous tuan the old
warrior looked with an eyeglass 1 never saw.
Eyeglasses don't go well with leopard-skin
cloans ana black ostrich plumes.
Then, having seeu that our guides were
well laden with water and provisions, and
having received a thundering farewell salute
from iue Buffaloes, we wrung the old war
rior's hand and began our downward climb.
A very arduous business it proved to be,
but somehow that evening we found our
selves at the bottom without accident.
"Do you know," said Sir Henry that night,
as we sat by our nre and gazed up at the
beetling cliffs above us. "1 think that there
are worse places than Kukuanaland in the
world, and that I have spent uuhappier
times than tne last month or two, though 1
have never spent such queer ones. Kb. 1 you
"I almost wish I were back." said (J001L
with a sigh.
As for myself, 1 reflected that all's well
that ends well ; but in the course of a long
life of siiaves, I uever had such shaves as
those I had recently experienced. The
thought of that battle still makes me feel
cold all over, and as for our experience in
Next morning we started on a toilsome
march across the desert, having with us a
good supply of water carried by our guides,
and camped that night in the open, starting
again at uawu 011 tne morrow.
By midday of the third day's journey we
could see the trees of the oasis ot which the
guides spoke, and by an hour before sun
down we were once more walking upon
grass aud listening to the sound of running
FOl'XD. . ' .
And now 1 coma to perhaps the strangest
thing that happened to us in all that strange
business, aud one which shows how won
derfully things are brought about,
I was walking quietly along, some way in
front of the other two, down the banks of
the stream which ran from the oasis till it
was swallowed up in the hungry desert
sands, when suddenly 1 stopped and rubbed
my eyes, as well i might. Tuere not twen
ty yards in front, placed in a charming situ
ation, . under . the shade of a species of ng
tree, and lacing to the stream, was a c(,zy
hut built more or less on the Kafir pn.10p.lv
of grass and withes, only with a fi.u-itn' 'tu
door iustead of a bee-fioie. , ' ,
"Wnat the dicKens," said I . to uiyseif,
"can a nut be doing here I'' . Even as 1 said
it, tne aonr 01 tne hut opened, and there
limped out of it a white man clothed in
skins, and with an enormous black oeard. i
Hiougnt 1l1.il 1 must have got a loucii of the

came to Mich a piace as thiri, Certainly 110

jn.-t at that juncture Sir Henry and Good
' Look here, you follows." I said, "is thai
a white man or am 1 rn;ul?"
.Sir Henry looked, and Iood looked, and
then all of a sudden the lam white man
ciime hobbling toward us. When he got
close, he fell down in a sort of faint.
vvth a snrintr birllenrv was bv hi side.
"tJreat Powers!" fie cried!" ."it is inj

At the sound of the disturbance anothei
figure, also clad in skins, emerged from the
hut, with a gun in his hand, and came run

'Macumazabn," he halloed,., "don't yon

And the fellow, fell, at my feet, and rolled
over and over; weeping for joy.-
