. Discovery of lakes Rudolf and Stefanie; a narrative of Count Samuel Teleki's exploring & hunting expedition in eastern equatorial Africa in 1887 & 1888. 28 AT NYEMPS always swerved aside in time. To fulfil our promise to the traders, we now went off hunting in different directions ; but we were not as successful as we had expected to be, for the game had nearly all disappeared. However, the Count secured on the hill he chose two elands and one kaama antelope, whilst I brought down near the swamp one buffalo, a bull, and one zebra. The former, which had a cow with him when I discovered him, gave me a lot of trouble, and did not succumb till he had received ten bullets from the 500 Express rifle and two shots from the 8-bore rifle, which proved that the 500 Express is g. not a sufficiently powerful weapon for old animals. It was interesting and touching to note that the cow would not leave her wounded mate, but fol- lowed him into the bush to which he dragged him- self. I had only one charge left for my Express rifle, so I now returned to camp, leaving the men with the buffalo. I was hurrying along, never doubting that the noise of the firing would have scared away all the game, when all of a sudden the head of a buffalo appeared amongst the rushes. I confess that, remembering I was alone with but one charge in my rifle, I felt hot and cold all over. I hastened on, obeying necessity rather than my own wishes, and passed the buffalo, who stood still with proudly reared crest. How eagerly I listened to every sound which might tell that he was about to charge, for it was quite beyond my power to look the terrible beast in the face, and now he was behind me, and the moments.
