London Graphic: To tlie south and eastward of Lobengula's capital is situated Macalaca land. It was conquered by that doughty monarch's father, Mesilikutzc, and still remains subservient to tho Matabeles. The approximate position of my camp at tho tlniu 1 witnessed tlie scene 1 will endeavor to describe as latitude'21 degrees south, longitude 32 degrees oast. Tlie country surrounding mo was UHirvclouwly attractive, although only sand, very sparsely covered Avlth bush, therefore totally useless for agiic.ultiiral or pastoral purposes, but through the Hat' veldt's surface, at Irregular Intervals, rose, copies of Immense blocks of stone, piled one upon tlie other, that resembled the debris that might have been left after Titans had built a gigantic city or mammoth fortilicaticai. These eruptions from beneath the earth's surface were covcral with parasitic plants, decorated with most attractive fruit or gorgeous blossoms. A species of aloe, too, was numerous, the upright stem which bears its flower having a very striking resemblance to clvilbia.- llon's unsightly telegraph poles. i This country is not destitute of water, as is attested by tho numbers of baboons, monkeys and leopards that f re- j quent the copjes, and the antelopes, .zebras nnd guinea fowl that wander over the flats. Possibly the indigenous bushmeu know where to find this necessity of life, but fheso astute savages concealed their secret from mo and my people. I Avas riding slowly along, admiring the beautiful colors of that distant landscape. In close attendance WHS my Massara guide-. My reverie was broken by an unknown sound, which echoed and reached from tho surrounding crags. It Avas not the honest bark of tho baboon, or tho rover- berntlnff voice of the lion, or tho hyena's discordant laugh, but a, combination of nil of thorn, uttered In quick j successive gasps. j On inquiry from my follower he informed mo that kameels (giraffes) were the originators of the unknown, sound. Massaiu begged me to folloAV hiiu.' 1 did, and so became witness of one of tlie most extraordinary sights in wild life that I had ever seen.' Those who have dwelt iu the distant east have doubtlessly seen male camels fight and noted with what obstinacy, power and vlciousuoss they .try to maim or disable one another; IIOAV they shriek with rage over each advantage that they obtain, and yell Avith pain when ' they are severely hurl;. A giraffe duel much resembles a camel's. Tho rivals wore not woll matched—Hie taller Avas out. of condi-, tion and very old; the other was in' splendid form nnd in the prime of life, j I concluded that, a light was imminent, and had no difficulty In deciding which would be the victor. Thoy roared in , uiilson, as if each were trying to drown the other's A'oieo; sometimes this would cease 'for a, few moments and then l>egln again with 1 renewed, .strength. Presently (ho br-lllgcrents came within a few yards of each other. j Although tho giraffe possessed a certain beauty when, at, rest it loses its j grace whonttn motion, and the greater its speed the more ungainly does it appear. But AA'hen two mature bulls begin to waltz and dance,'; violently around each other, each endeavoring to outdo the other in agility, at, the same time mumbling their jaws and emitting fearfully discordant roars, it is certainly one of the most absurd sights human eye ever looked upon. I hnA'o often seen a crane dance—a fuuc- tlon common enough mirth of the Vnal river; II is more (ban funny—-it is ridiculous—but, cannot for an instant, bo compared to tho antics of those two mammoth brutes. Their great height added to tho grotosquoness of their behavior; but even if the beasts had been . no bigger than goats or sheep, tho ab-1 surd manner In which (hoy swung j about their foot, contorted their bodies ! and swayed their heads must have imrvod the most pholgmatlc. i Wo lay Million and quiet while tho rivals Avoro getting closer and closer to each other; at length, jwhon they | wore nearly within striking distance, simultaneously each dropped upon his twine his long neck about that of tho other, with the evident purpose of seizing his adversary's throat. This lasted several minutes, but both were "skilled of fence," and ultimately relinquished this style of fighting nnd adopted other tactics. They began roaring as if to boar each other down, their mouths nil fiu> ttmo open to grip If opportunity occurred. At length tho violent exercise began to tell upon tho older beast; he niado some mistake in a pnrry, nnd the younger poized with his tooth tho foot of tho veteran, who In return laid hold of his opponent's ear. For somo momenta there was a pausie. It was very, brief, and ttw»n tho straggle was renewed. With, a gigantic effort the younger giraffe threw the old hero upon his haunches, -He lookfd very much as If he had played Ms last ivirdj but there was pluck in his aged heart yet, though tho battle was not for him; years told against him, and victory lay with the youngster, who celebrated it by trying to drag the vanquished after him. This operation must have been painful, for the shrieks that the defeated warrior uttered were heart rending. After a final won?', the hero of the hour walked off, mobbed the (AVO herds of females together, and willingly followed by all took the lead. Not one of the zenana of tho fallen chief turned a head for an iiistalit to see what had become of him. The veteran finally tried to pull himself together, but he Avns dreadfully knocked about as Avell as very lame. With anxious eyes he gazed in the direction the herd had taken, possibly wishing to folloAV, or with a hope that one of his wives at least would return to him. Not so; tho 'poor old fellow Avas doomed to disappointment, and appeared to realize that he was deserted. Tho life before him, I knew, would be one .of misery, therefore, what bettor could I do but raise my rifle, glance along my pight nnd send a Indict through his heart. It. AA-as a sad alternative, but after all I think it was humane. fVES CHALLENGES THE WORLD j- Any HIlll.mllKt. for 010,000. Hulk CF.UELTY IN VENEZUELA. Krtsltl**ntN Look 15'»rk 1'imn tlif T.ato Uevo- lutloii AH Upon a Nightmare.. As soon as peace became assured, all tho residents of La Gunyra looked back upon.tho past anarchy and'chaos as upon some dreadful nightmare. None save those who lived there during tlio dark days of tho revolution can realize tlio Imminent danger through which every 0112 passed. Had it not been for tho pre*cnce of seven men-of-Avar in tho harbor, tho barbarians that controlled that city would have hesitated at no act of A'iolcncc. Indeed, Mondoza announced that he respected no flag, and declared that he would massacre every foreigner in the place if any one iuter- ferrcd with the little scliemo of plunder and imprisonment. And the death roll of those poor wretches who wore without foreign protection? .This'will over remain a secret of-the revolution. Tho American consul could a talc unfold, however, for tho prison was jii.a building adjoining his. I had the good fortune of sharing the consulate with him during tAVO of tlie worst months, says W. N. King in Harper's Weekly, and each'morning aAA'akcn- ed from tlie memories of. tlie night before. At all hours you would be aroused by the rude challenge of the guard almost under your window. If a prompt reply was not forthcoming from tho approaching party, a bullet sometimes settled the doubt.. Only the Sunday afternoon before the fall of La Guayra several officers' from tho Cliicago were sitting in tlie consul's office. The sun AA'as shining as it shines only in the tropics, and the cathedral bell was calling the faithful to the vesper service. Suddenly a man cried out doAA'n tlio street, and before we could reach tho balcony tlio poor AATctch was lying in a pool of blood, completely hacked to pieces Avith a murderous ma- chote. Two assistants came out of tho prison and dragged tho^ body, head doAvu, over the rough stones. The chief of police was sitting on a chair in front' of tlie prison at thp time, but did not oven turn his head while .the felloAv was being killed not twenty yards away. As tho guards passed with ; tlie body ho said: "Bueno, quo ha hecho el?" (Well, what did he do?) "Oh, ol es rosistio yo lo di un ma- chetazo, eso es todo." (Oh, ho resisted, and I gavo him the machete, that's all.) Tho poor felloAv, it scorns, was taken from his homo to bo impressed into the army. As tho guard AA'as dragging him to prison, ho protested on account of hia age. A feAA r yards from the gate he fell down from exhaustion, and failed to rise at tho command. This was the resistance for which tho poor felloAA' was "glvt'ii tho machete." There was a story in La Guayra be> fore I left that this same guard was captured by tho murdered man's brother, Avlio Avaa a revolutionary soldier, and treated to a'dose of his medicine. With both hands tied behind his back, ho was carried out into tho harbor in a small boat. There his head was taken off with (ho koon-odg?d machete, and tho body thrown overboard. It Is from such lawless acts nnd barbarous deeds that Crcspo has delivered his country. Is It strange, then, tint all good people hi Venezuela, both na- tivo and foreign, should have sympathized with the revolution, and prayed for tho overthroAV of Andueza Palacio and his tyrannical hirelings?
