    Rudyard Kipling tells a good story
of himself to the Newcastle I Eng.)
Chronicle. On* day, he says. I was
sitting In my study In ondon when
suddenly a gentleman appeared at the
door unannounced, followed by two
schoolboys. "Is this Rudyard Kip
ling?” Inquired the gentleman. "Yes.”
1 answered. He turned round. "Roys,
this is Rudyard Kipling.” "And this
is where you write?” he continued.
“Yes," 1 replied. “Boys, this Is where
be writes.” And before I had time to
ask them to take a seat they were
gone, boys and all. I suppose they had
all literary l^tndon to do in that way.

! "Tho lion Is !n the kraal and has
killed another ox!" A rude and some
what startling awakening, this! And
on a Sunday morning, too. as early as
1 o'cloc k a. m.! 1 sat up in my stretch
er, and gazed towards the open door,
, where my good missions! y host stood,
candle in hand, and bearer of Informa
tion such as always g'ces real pleasure
lo the ''big-game'' sportsman, no mat
' ter however much he may regret the
j loss of ox, horse, or donkey, which so
often serves as the Introductory price
to his majesty, "fells Ico.”
The scene of action was a mission
station on the borders cf the Mashlko
Jumbwe country, and some sixteen
miles to the west of the Kafukwc riv
er iu south latitude 13 degrees 33 min
utes. I was returning from a Journey
I of exploration among the Mashlko
I lumbwe come four days earlier, and
i had been tempted to sojourn a few days
with my friends, Messrs. Buckenham
ar.d Baldwin, In order to do battle with
a man-eating lion which three weeks
before had taken up hit? quarters in tho
neighborhood, and had been living
right merrily on the natives ever since.
Mr. Baldwin had given me a list of
this lion’s bag, from which it was evi
dent that the animal did not shun the
habitations of man. and was particular
ly predisposed In favor of the gentler
sex—a trait In hia character which went
far to bring about his ruin.
Ou Jan. 28, 189C. a woman was seized
and carried off from Just outside the
village stockade, and was no more seen
or heard of. On the 29th the animal
visited the mission cattle kraal. His
appearance caused a general stampede
among the oxen and donkeys Inside,
which broke through the palisade and
tore off In the darkness In all direc
tions. On this, of course, all that was
left for King Leo to do was to take Ills
nlnlr »n,l ...1st. 1. 1 _ II «l,r.
pntanglement of thorns at the back of
the station, which (to man) Impenetra
ble fastness he had chosen as his head
quarters. He selected an ox, as It hap
pened. and decamped with the beef.
The 30th was a red-letter day In his
career. In the daytime he annexed a
sheep, a lamb, and a goat, and there
fore It Is to be assumed he was not
suffering from hunger when light gave
place to darkness. He must thus have
been either a very keen sportsman or
an enthusiast In his devotion to the fair
sex, or he would not have pawed aside
the wicker door of a native hut, walked
inside, and abducted a sleeping female
from the bosom of her family. And
yet he did. On the morrow he does not
seem to have gone abroad, but on the
following night, Feb. 1, he varied his
menu with a donkey from the mission
kraal which had belonged to me some
few weeks previously. Then four days’
rest, till on the 5th he purloined a sec
ond donkey, and was no more heard of
till Sunday, the 9th. when he died by
violence. And this Is bow it came
about: To jump Into a pair of trous
ers and place a couple of cartridges In
to my 16-bore was only a matter of a
moment, as soon as the alarm was giv
en. My plan was to approach the kraal
and try to get a shot at the lion with
the aid of bluellghts, which I carried
with me in anticipation of such emer
gencies as the present. Mr. Baldwin at
once volunteered to accompany me, and
armed himself with a Martini rifle.
Then repairing to the "boys’ ” Are, I
explained my plans and called for a vol
unteer to bold the light which would
enable me to get a suitable view of ray
quarry. The Afrleau native does not
show a great amount of enthusiasm for
lion-hunting even by daylight, so I con
fess to being very ugreeahly surprised
when three boys offered to join us in
the attack—my Bamangwuto boy. I>e
eharn. a Mashlkolumbne youth of
about 18, and a Munko.vs who had re
cently entered my service. The re
mainder preferred the warm glow of
their camp Are. As the Mashikolumh
we seemed to me to exhibit most calm
ness of demeanor. I Intrusted him with
the blue light, with Instrut tlon* in keep
dose behind my right shoulder, and to
hold the light aloft after I had ignited
the fuse; the other two prolonged the
line to the right, with Mr. liable lu on
their flank. And thus we adtanred
slowly Into Ibe darkness until within
suiue thirty pares of the tattle kraal,
whan we were pulled up sharp by the
sound ef an angry growl ftuin our uu

parently mere bluff. He must have
been within six feet when h's growl
ing^ ceased and all became quiet again.
A second light responded to the strik
er, and lit up the kraal and Its sur
roundings. The enemy had decamped
and taken covert in the scrub beyond.
We then retraced our steps, and smoked
a pipe In order to give his majesty
time to think over matters and return
to his meat.
in about half an hour's time we re
turned to the attack. As we neared the
l:raal another low growl greeted us I
struck a light, and as I did so the Ma
shikolumbwe boy told mo he saw the
lion standing near ant-heap close(
by the kraal. 1 looked, and saw two
dark objects—one on either side of the,
ant-heap. To th* left, what I took for
ft bush—as It seemed much too large
for a lion—was all I could see; to the
right, what might easily be a crouch
ing lion attracted my notice. I fired at
the latter—the light went out, and all
was quiet. Another light revealed the
smaller object still there, and it is so
still for all I know—but the larger ono
had disappeared. I had fired at the
wrong one!
The next attempt only gave us a
glimpse us his body glided to covert
from behind the kraal. He evidently
didn't mean to give us another chance
that night, so we decided to retire to
rest—but not to sleep—and make a fur
ther attempt at grey dawn, In the hope
of getting a shot before he had reached
the impenetrable bush behind the sta
tion, where It would bo Impossible to
get at him.
Vet once more Mr. Baldwin called mo
from the world of sleep as he opened
the door of the hut. This time, how
ever, he said nothing, but looked a
great deal. I uttered one short but
expressive syllable as I realized that
the sun was already high In the heav
ens, and the chance of coming up with
the lion very remote Indeed. The ani
mal, Mr. Baldwin told me, had actually
nntpn Ida wov * t« u
as a man's arm hi order to gain en
trance to the kraal. He had, of course,
dragged away the carcass, and must
ere this have reached tils lair. We
found, as the boys had reported to Mr.
Baldwin, that n hole had been eaten
through the palisade, and at the far
side a larger opening through which
the surviving terrified animals had
made their eseape. A groove In the
sandy soil showed the line along which
the carcass had been dragged. Accom
panied by three boys, we followed the
spoor until, after traversing some five
hundred yards only, wc came upon the
remains of the ox lying at the entrance
of a tunnel through dense thorn bush.
No lion was to be seen, though there
was but little doubt that the marauder
was within a few yards of his prey. A
growl soon disclosed big whereabouts,
and as It came from behind a wall of
bush only a few paces In front, I fired
at where I calculated the animal stood,
fearing that he would not venture Into
the open with so much covert at his
disposal. There being no response or
sound of movement, I left Mr. Baldwin
and the boys and commenced to skirt
the wall of thorn with the object of
attacking him in his retreat. I had
reached the ox, from which I was sep
arated by a few thorns, when an ab
normally large lion cantered down the
"tunnel,’’ and stood for a moment look
ing at Mr. Baldwin. The bush would
not allow me to get my rifle round be
fore the lion, catching sight of me—
not two yards from him for the first
time, turned round and trotted back to
covert. I then continued the flanking
movement, until a brownish back
ground, beyond a small opening In the
thorns, arrested my advance, and I
could determine whether I saw a small
piece of lion or of an ant-heap or bark
less tree. A movement of a dark spot,
after I had been watching for some
seconds, told me that what I had In
front of me must be the lion, and that
the spot must be his nose or his ear,
either of which, according as he was
facing me or standing side-ways, made
an nvnollpnfr hull's; pvp fnr st hrain thnf
I raised my rifle and took a careful
aim—a report—a sudden movement of
the fawn mass—and all was still again.
On examining the carcass it was found
that the bullet had passed up the tight
nostril and through the brain crashing
through the atlas vertebra and resting
under the skin. Measurement showed
him to l>e much above the average, hi*
length from muule to tip of tall being
9 feet 10 inches, and hlH standing
height, taken between assegais, from
the pads of his heels to the shoulder
points. Just 43 Inches. In shoulder
measurement only one larger seems to
have been bagged oue shot by Mr.
Selous, which scaled 44 Inches. liis
mane, unfortunately, left much to be
desired. With the ultl of a long pole
and severul natives he was carried Into
the atatlou. There was great rejoicing
among the natives that Sunday morn
ing who congregated lu large numbers
and finished up by eating the carcass of
their fallen foe. not withstanding the ;
fact that two of tbelr women folk were
