Hunting beasts in Africa. In getting wild animals the Rule is to kill the old ones and secure the Young for after any of the beasts have grow n old enough to become accustomed to the free life of the w oods and to Hunt their own food they Are treacherous and Worth Little for purposes of exhibition. Paul Luhn one of the ii Eiche Brothers men who has lately returned from Africa with rare Birds and animals tells interesting stories of the perils of the Hunt. He says a the lion is a fierce creature and the lioness when protecting her Young very much worse but from Long practice we know just How to go after them. A Good Rifle firm hands and steady eyes and we can soon topple the old fellow Over. The old lady May take a Little longer but in the end we Are sure to kill her and then it is no trouble to pick up and secure the cub. We try to get these Little Fellows when they Are about three or four weeks old. They Are then like Young puppies easily managed and soon learn to know their keepers. Leopards tigers and All that kind of animals we get in the same w a and at about the same age. Baby elephants Are hard to get and the Hunt is very dangerous. The old ones seem to know instinctively when we Are after their Young and their rage is something terrible. The trumpeting of the parents can be heard for a Lon distance and quickly alarms the w Hole Herd. The Rifle is comparatively useless and trying to approach them particularly hazardous yet it has to be done. First we try to distract the attention of the female fro her offspring. Then a native creeps cautiously up from behind and with one Cut of a heavy Broad bladed knife severs the tendons of her Hind feet. She is then disabled cannot walk and soon Falls to the ground. We promptly kill her secure the Ivory and capture the Little one. Of course we occasionally have a native or two killed Iii this kind of Hunt but they done to Cost much Only live dollars or six dollars apiece. The sheikhs arc paid in Advance and done to care w Hether the poor Fellows come Back and so we done to bother much about them. Baby elephants we Popo Tamus with Young is the very worst Aud whenever we Start off to get a baby of that kind we calculate to come Back with one or More men missing. In the water they fight and in live minutes will crush to pieces the strongest boat we can use. They Are Quick As a flask too notwithstanding their Clumsy appearance and the oarsmen have to be wide awake to keep out of their Way. On Shore they Are just As ferocious and the Way they can hurry their stumpy Little legs Over the ground would astonish you. They die hard too and take a Heap of killing. When such a Job is Over you May be sure there is great rejoicing among us but As one Little Hippopotamus is Worth As much As half a dozen Lions tigers and such truck we Are Well Content to take the risk. We cannot get these babies too Young to suit us. One i remember though i was not in the Hunt was captured the very Day it w As born and the Hunters and attendants brought it up on the bottle. It is the same animal that Barnum advertised so extensively As the a baby Hippopotamus a and it is now travelling with his show. Ostriches we run Down on horseback and then catch them with the Lasso. It is an exciting Chase but not particularly dangerous. On these Hunts. W e Are entitled to Only the Young animals we capture. The Beautiful skins of the leopards Lions and other animals we kill the tusks of the elephants the feathers of the ostriches and All other similar spoils go to the native sheikhs and chiefs and those old rascals Are As Sharp at a Trade As the shrew dest a old clog merchant you have in Chatham Street. A a in the encampments the natives assist in taking care of the animals and do general work but the menial duties Are performed by nubian slaves who Are very cheap and can be bought in numbers to suit. Among the natives the women Are looked on As inferior. Women never eat with their husbands. The husband is allowed four wives and As Many slaves As he can a sufficient number and variety of animals having been secured a caravan is formed to take them across the desert to Germany or America. This usually consists of about too camels each having its native Driver thirty or forty horses for the White men and the Arab Hunters and their attendants a flock of from 150 to 200 goats for their milk and also for food and Black slaves to look out for the goats. The wild animals Are secured in Strong boxes and carried on the camels backs. They Are All Young and Are fed principally with goats milk although occasionally to keep them in Good spirits and line condition they Are Given pieces of raw goats meat. Horses Are very cheap there ranging from $15 to $20 each the natives even cheaper $7 being thought an extravagant Price per Man for the trip. Milking goats Are Worth one Dollar each and others about fifty cents. The journey usually occupies from thirty to forty Days and All travelling is done Between three and eleven of clock in the morning and five and eleven in the evening. During midday the suns rays Are so fiercely hot As to make labor or travelling hazardous and none is attempted. The route Home is much the same As that taken going out and in due time the beasts Are landed usually with very Little loss on the great Stock wild animal farm of Charles Reiche amp brother in Alfeldt Hanover. There they remain until needed to till orders of showmen in either Europe or America while their Hardy captors take three months of rest and recreation before starting on another trip. The Reiche Brothers have nearly $250,-000 invested in t his Enterprise which they have successfully conducted for Many years. The extravagance of the prices paid for some of the beasts is Little known. As High As $15,000 has been paid for a single Hippopotamus in Good condition. To Day $20,000 would hardly buy a specimen As there is not one in the country that is known to be for Sale. A Rhinoceros is Worth from $3,000 to $7,000, according to demand and excellence. Giraffes sell for $1,000 to $6,000. Lions from $500 to $2,500 leopards from $200 to $400 hyenas about the same and ostriches from $300 to $500. Elephants vary in Price for while some have sold for As Low As $1,000, As High As $10,000 has been paid without grumbling Tor a Fine big intelligent . 7. Sun. The Eastern War.

One of the principal difficulties in learning the English language i3 the inexplicable manner in which most of the words Are spelled the Twenty six letters of the alphabet vying with each other to represent the forty or forty two sounds of the language in the most bungling and disorderly manner.

Further particulars of the Battle before Kars make it evident that the russians assaulted the turkish position along the whole line and were repulsed with heavy loss. The turkish line extended from the great and Little Agni two fortified Hills in Ivor Ikada Plain As far As Ani on the a Pachai River with the Center advanced toward the River and resting on Kizzle Tepe. The russians began the Battle at Daybreak tuesday by an assault on the great a Quot Agni the extreme cutwork of Moukhtar Pasha a fortifications twelve Miles due East from Kars. The turks seem to have been taken by Surprise. A single turkish regiment defending the great Agni was Cut to pieces or captured with the Post after two hours obstinate defense. Up to this Point All accounts agree but regard aug subsequent events they Are conflicting. A russian bulletin says a after the capture of the great Agni it was found that the Littley Agni was so strongly fortified that an attempt to assault it was considered premature. Our loss tuesday was 3,069 killed and wounded. The enemy a losses Are not less. We captured 200 the russians also attacked the Center at Kiili Tepe but were repulsed. Simultaneously the russian Force moving from the direction of Ani endeavoured to turn the turkish right and get Between Moukhtar Pasha and Kars. The Little Agni was assaulted five times taken and retaken. The movement against the turkish right flank was so near succeeding that Moukhtar Pasha a communications with Kars at one time were actually severed. Eventually the repulse was Complete along the whole line and the turks remained in Possession of Tho Field which was covered with the russian dead. A correspondent with Melikoff a army telegraphedonthe4th a at three of clock this afternoon the russians were surrounding Kiili Tepe when Moukhtar Pasha desperate at seeing his communications with Kars threatened advanced against the out Center with Twenty battalions. The turks were received with a crushing artillery fire. Russian Tirail Leurs drove them Back pursuing them to so Batan till Nightfall. The turks were utterly demoralized and everywhere took to flight. Our losses Are unknown but Over 2,000 Are reported constantinople oct. 5. Moukhtar Pasha telegraphs that on the 4th the turks reoccupied the Heights of great Agni which had been evacuated by the russians during the night. Two turkish columns Are now attacking the russians who Are concentrated on the Bank of the Kars Toai opposite the Kabak Heights whilst the turkish cavalry have been sent to threaten the communications of the russians with their Camp at Urabel. Fighting was proceeding when the Telegram was dispatched. Constantinople oct. 7. Moukhtar Pasha telegraphed on the 5th a to Day the bulk of the russian forces fell Back to the foot of the Karakul leaving Only six battalions entrenched at Kabak. They have thus abandoned their positions parallel with our lines. There is no Trace of the enemy at bal Dioran Kiz Ilvan or Oahu flu they having struck their Camps. The enemy a losses during the three Days Battles at Yalar Gulvezan and Aladj a Deith Are estimated at 10,000 killed and wounded. Our losses Are about 2,000. The grand Duke Michael commanded the russians in person. Providence has happily frustrated the formidable plans of our la mind wearing them Hill a Ria. London oct. 6. The Czar Witch a army in Bulgaria awaits the arrival of the whole of its reinforcements before venturing to Advance either toward Rustchak or across the upper loin. The ottoman army of Shumla can hardly make an offensive movement until its new commander Sulieman Pasha has arrived at Headquarters. If the weather and roads continue Good heavy fighting May be expected in this direction within a few Days. The army of the Czar Witch w ill have no longer an occasion to halt after the rearmost battalions of the guard have crossed the Danube and the new ottoman commander May attempt some bold exploit. At Plevna the romanians have pushed their sap to within a few Yards of the counter Scarp of the second redoubt on Gravity Ridge but no trustworthy account indicates the position. Osman Pasha has been invested or closely blockaded. A tramps maxims.
