Hunting
Dangerous
African
Buffalo
By II. A. Bryden
II. A. Ikyden the co-author with
Percy Srlous of "Travel and liiij
llamc" is a man 11I10 wan born to
iho chase. From his youth it has
been his ruling pasiion and ho has
gone with his rilo all over the world.
In every continent his famo as a
Nimrod is known and ho has a mod-
est direct style of presenting his
adventures tinned with a little touch
of poetic sentiment here and there
which is very pleasing indeed. If any
fault at all could be found with him
it would be that he was overmodest
and inclined to boast for others in-
stead of telling his own story.
N Incident highly In
dlcntlvo of tho ox
traordlnnrlly danger-
ons chnrnctor of tho
African buffalo 1b re-
lated by air. AltiBloy

man scout of tho fn-
inotiB NIgor water-
shed exploring party
him from his ac
HllSBOd
customed stations anil on his ro-
appearnnco ho was generally ban
daged no and ono leg was In
splIntB. It appears that ono Into after-
noon when tho HhndowB In tho brush
were growing to tho point of .almost
comploto darkness though tho sun
Htlll lllumlnntoil tho tops of tho troos
ho was returning to camp alono Bnvo
for a Sonogamblau gun bearer noted
for bin bravery. Both woro mounted
on natlvo ponies wiry and keen of
boiibos. Suddenly Wljllnins' pony bo-
gau to nnulllo and snort and both
Btood ntock still refusing to advanco
Into tho darkuoBs of tho follngo-
arched trail. Williams (illicitly tin-
slung n double barrelled ten gnugo
I'arker with which ho had boon after
fowl. Ho meant to clip In a buck shot
cartrldgo but boforo ho more than
had his gun across his pommel with
n grunting hollow tho huge form of
an old bull buffalo rushed out of tho
darluioflB ahead and charged tho two
with all ferocity.
It was ImpoBBlblo to turn out of his
way and all that Williams could do
was to loan forward and pull both
barrels point blank. The mnsBlvo
horns and frontal bonos naist have
shielded tho beast from any Injury
save enough to Infuriate It inoro than
ever. Tho next Instant Williams'
pony was dlflombowolod with a sldo
swlpo of tho hull's horns and tho
rider was pitched Into tho brush with
n broken leg. On over tho dying
pony rushed tho buffalo and his
chargo drovo tho second pony end
over end on top of his Seuegamblnu
rider. Tho two illlos ho carried How
into tho brush and ono fell near Will
lams. It was tho Winchester forty-
four. WIHIanm dragged himself over
to it and found It uninjured but a
trngedy was transpiring meanwhile
Giving tho p. or gun bearer no oln.iico
for bis life tho bull swept Hist ono
tip of his mighty horns and then tho
other Into tho jumble of horsi and
man and In his blind fury knelt on
them ami stamped on them Th's
happened in tho fraction of n minute
of course and was terminated only
when Williams uuuterlng nil his
btrength roso to his Knees and began
pumping Hott-uosod pellets Into tho
bull'ii Hank raking h'.in forward into
vital parts. Tho murderous qrenturo
fell on top of his victims and when
searchers attracted by Williams'
cries found them horse bull and
Seuegamblnu lay dead In ono heap.
Most Dangerous Game in Africa.
It Is agreed upon nil hands by ex-
perienced hunters In Africa that tho
buffalo is ono of tho threo most dan-
gerous four-footed foes that man can
attack. Most men class this animal
with elephants and lions as game that
requires tho highest attributes of skill
courage and caution to bring to bn'j.
As a matter of fact It may bo laid
down tbnt moro deaths and dangerous
accidents happen annually In Africa

clnibo of uny other species of heavy

Stalking a Buffalo Herd.

largo herds of buffaloes ho loft ms

river and Bpont tho next two days In
hunting. Ho had with Dim his own
Hottentot servant a good and reliable
hunter and n fair shot and ho had
rta well several nntlves of tho dlst-lct

to show him tho gnmo.
k On tho llrst day tho Dutchman caino

somo good and convenient covert nnd
with thft wind In tho right direr '.Ion
ho had little dllllculty In Bhootlng two
fat cows and a young frosh bull. Tho
cows woro pretty enslly secured; but
tho young bull although shot through
tho lungs Jumped on his legs from
boiuo long grnss and bush then
walked up charged fiercely at tho
bpoorlng party and was only killed
within a few foot of the hunter. The
G
rest of tho day was spent In skinning
nnd cutting up tho game. Part of tho
natives wcro sent hack to tho llocr
camp laden with an much moat as
thoy could carry tho llocra requiring
not only fresh meat for Immediate
use but ouough to mnku n supply of
"biltong" (salted sun-dried flesh) ; tho
remainder of tho flesh was bestowed
upon tho natlvo villagers who -"ro

Largo numbers of buffaloes wore
still reported a little further ahead
among tho Ingoons nnd marshes of

therefore camped for tho night ato a
heaity nuppor by tho roaring firo and
slept soundly till early dawn. Heforo

In less 'thnn two hours' tlmo tho na-

call It surrounded by drier ground
upon which grew hush acacia trees
and a few tall palms l'art of this
lagoon was nhallow open water tho

tall reeds which led to further
swamps and lagoons beyond. Tho

Doer aimed behind tho point of tho

retreating cow eighty yards off nnd

Some Perils of Buffalo-Hunting.
Occasionally hunters havo been at-
tacked -by a solitary buffalo which has
charged them before a shot has been
fired and without apparent provoca-
FROM THE GROUND.
Hon. In such Instnnccs it has usually
been found either tbnt tho animal
had been previously wounded by somo
other hunter or hail been clawed by
n lion; in cither caso Its naturally
morose temper having been rend-srod
yet moro dangerous.
No hunter ought to nttompt to tncklo
a buffalo with a rlllo of lighter callbro
tnnn a D77 doublo oxpross.
Onco plentiful all over Southern Af-
rica whorovor water was to bo found
tho buffnlo has now to bo sought far
In tho Intorlor. Thoro Is ono slngulnr
exception to this statement. Many
years ngo tho Capo governmont
passed nu net protecting under se-
vere penalties tho buffnlo as well a8
tin olophun't In Cnpo colony. In tho
forest nnd densely bushed regions
hordorlng tho coast line boiuo strong
troops of buffaloes nro still to bo
found between Mossol bay and tho
Kowlo river. A few years ngo dur-
ing n grcnt drought Bomo of these
flno beustB wero to bo 8oen drinking
In tho river within c. fow miles of tho
town of Ultenhago. Theso animals
can only bo shot In Cnpo colony by a
apodal permit from tho governor nnd
on paymont of tho sum rt ten pounds
for onch specimen obtained. Doyond
Capo colony tlio sportsman lias to
travel nowadays several hundred
miles heforo ho can hopo to find buf-
fnlo. Perhaps tho host country exist-
ing at the present tlmo it tho low and
unhealthy rerjlon lying In Portuguese
territory between tho Sabl and Zam-
besi. Upon tho Bu&i and Puugue
rlvcro nnd tholr tributaries nnd about
tho tributaries of tho Zambesi on
Its easterly course large herds of
buffalo aro still to bo found. This
country howover is only accessible
during tho African winter April to
October unless tho risk of deadly
fover bo taken. There oro still buffa-
lo to bo found to about tho Chobo
river. In tho far-off swamps nnd
mnrshes of tho Upper Okavango. In
these regions tho tsetso fly Is certain
to bo found fn Iho buffaloes' haunt
nnd tho hunter must perforco do all
hln work on foot.
As tho Afrlcnn buifalo Is ono of the
toughest and most difficult of all gamo
animals to bring to bag so that hand-
somo creature uurcneus zonra
(EquiiB llurchclll) tho zebra of tho
plnltiB Is by far tho most easily de-
stroyed. A slnglo -IG0 Exrrcss or Mar-tlnl-Honry
bullet will at onco turn
this fleet nnd handsomo animal of tho
troop an easy victim (If not a eadtf
killed outright) to tho hunter's next
shot. With a broken leg the zebra
Is Instantly helpless; with a broken
limb and n shot through tho body to
boot ono of tho larger African an-
telopes such ns a hartebeeut or brin-
dled gnu will often run for miles and
flnnlly eBcnpo tho hunter altogether.
As an almost Invariable rulo Burch-
oil's zebras oro hunted on horseback;
they aro fleet and enduring and oven
a first-clnsn South African hunting
pony must bo In very good form nnd
upon hard oven ground to carry his
rider within hall of them. Most usu-
ally theso animals nro to bo met with
feeding on open grassy plains or In
open bush whoro lnrgo glades and
clenrlngs aro to he found. In a tail-on
end chaBO across flats with a fair
start they can usually gallop clean
away from tho mounted man. If It
wero not for a habit of curiosity thoy
would Indeed bo "klttlo cattlo" to
como up with on tho great plains.
Hut their curiosity Is often their un-
doing. I havo many times galloped
steadily behind n troop of thoso ze-
bras and then halted for a moment.
Tho zebras would then wheel quickly
round In lino and stand for a minute
lo havo a good look at tin pursuer.
This was tho tlmo to put In n Btendy
shot. Sometimes even when tho hun-
ter Is galloping thoy wHI turn round
nnd stand for a moment apparently
out of sheer curiosity.
Exterminating the African Zebra.
In Beml-bushy country whero their
view Is moro circumscribed these zo-
bras are without much dllllculty shot.
In Mnshonnland largo numbers of
thoso zebras havo been shot within
tho last few years by tho pioneers
nnd sottlers. I havo found that by
making a long d 'our an getting bo-
tween them and tho bush tp which
thoy run for shelter theso animals
when feeding in tho open can bo
driven nbout and shot pretty much nt
will. They seem for the time to be-
como Custered loso their heads try
to make short cuts pnst t"1 mounted
men and so fall "victims. In former
days these magnificent boasts ran in
Immense numbers in nil the open
country from tho Orange rlvor to the
Zambesi. Thoy aro Btlll to bo found
In largo troops in tho Ngamlland coun-
try In remoter parts of Mashonaland
nnd In Btlll I .rgcr numbrs east and
northeast of Mashonninnd townrd
tho coast. Hoyond tho Zambesi thoy
aro widely distributed In Africa be-
coming exceedingly plentiful again
upon tho great plains between the
cast coast and Uganda. South of the
Orange river they seem seldom If
over to havo ranged. Burcholl's zo-
brn Is not to bo confounded with
tho moro afdnlno blnck and white
mountnln zebra (E3 Zobra) which is
perfectly striped all over. Tho B rch-
ell's zobra la best mown to the Brit-
ish public of nil this handsome group
good examples bolng atway on vlow
in tho Zoological Bocloty's gardens.
As a general rulo this zebra is not
perfectly banded down tho legs as is
its mountain cousin but ' a vnriety
sometimes called by sclcntlsts"Chap-
man's zebra" Is to bo found in the
Interior with tho white 1 ga protty
generally banded as far down as tho
fotlocks. Tho avcrago European
Bportsman having shot a few of these
beautiful creatures as specimens will
usually stay his hand and sparo them
unless meat for his followers Is abso-
lutely needed. Tho Boer and nntlvo
hunter on tho contrary shoot thoin
whcno'er thoy get tho chanco meroly
for tho prlco of tho skin a mutter of
a fow shillings up country. And bo
tho species becomes exterminated. It
Is a" thousand pities! Of all sights
In tho fair veldt and there aro many
to charm tho eye I know of few no-
bler thnn n good troop of Burcholl's
zobrns creatures which seem to havo
been created for on other purposo
than to ndorn tho wilderness.
Whethor feeding qulotly among tho
horbngo; or resting in the heat of
midday; or fleotlng across tho plain
their striped coats as clean ond shin-
ing ns a well-groomed race horse
gloaming In tho sunlight; brisk beau-
tifully proportioned nnd full of life
and spirits; those zebras represent
tho highest perfection of feral llfo.
Truo children of tho sun-drenched
plains long may thoy yet flourish to
decornto tho African veldt!
