On Monday evening last olio of Ibe

chilli, when Prof. Robertson, Dominion
dairy commissioner, addressed it
crowded gathering of representative
fanners ot the valley, Lord Aberdeen
introduced Prof. Roberlsoii to his audience iu well ohiHi'ii words, and Die
speaker nf the evening delivered what
to many of those present was the most
Interesting lecture of their lives. Uu*
Inrliinately a report of lhe commit.*
sinner's speech i.s iiiii lo band, so cannot bo given verbatim, nevertheless
from those present it was gleaned that
the winds tlmt were addressed lo them
were greiltlf appreciated,
little or no mineral was to Is* seen
before Ibis Inst work was dune,
the ledge showed a high assay value.
Lately, however, it is becoming mora
mineralized and considerable free gold

curs in consilient I ilcahutidiiiicf I Iii-i nigh*

liiiueil a lillie lead, however, and uiny,
he thinks, prove nu further examination to lie the mineral all alto, a lellur*

When I wan Rtfttloned up tn the hill j
counlry ROUie twenty years ago I used I
to in-   jHissiijimtdy fimil   of   hunting.
I hadn't Iwun uut from England long,
and thu novelty of following big game had '
not yet lo»t ilu clmnns.   My dutloa did,
not ocuupy il gn«t qnnl of my lime und 1 j
could often  bo absent a wivk or len |
days moro witliout serious inconvunloneo ,
tn anyone.   With » couple of unlives and
my old "Henry," I then set forth on Mom*- j
elm,   my elephant.   Mowclia wus un ox-
eeptlonally fine spcolmon of his race, endowed with all lis virtues nnd but few of
ils fiuilis.   Ho wus strong, patient, Riiga-
i-imis. und devoted to his muster.   He hud
never neon used us u working elephant,
Imt only fnr lhe puipuses of the chase.
Vim should have Been his unwloldly hulk
making its way  nuUoloSKiy through tlio
ililek jungle grasp, his great foot lifted antl
put down with i he utmost caution, his
flexlhlo trunk darting iu ull directions
to scent  the gume,  uml his small eyes
gleaming wit' excitement.   Hoseomod to
know Instinctively the moment to lire,
and then ho would not move a muscle.
Vmi know ii requires no small amount of
norve lo stand porfectly still with a Boh-
gal devil iu uslripetl skin charging at one
and too often it happens that your well
dim-ted shot is spoiled hy your eh-pham's
speedy retreat.
Thi' natives doomed Mowclia superhuman ou account of his Intelligence ami
4troug(h, and his mahout always calhd
Mm "My Lord the Klephant," and treated
lm witli thu greatest respect. You know
I icliindno belief, thai lhe souls of one's an-
iTstors havo to reMdo for a period after
oath in the bodies of animals lill they
eve atoned for their shnrtcomlmrs
on earth; , lest and they might unwlt-
ilngly treat some of their grand*
fathers or greatgrandfathers with
disrespect, which would he a criminal violation of their religion, it is Iheir
mistoni lo give to each of llieir inmate*; of
t'lejuiifflea parllcular title as for in-
-lance, His Highness tho Tiger Our King
ihe Moil,' etc. So Mowclia wus more of ton
;uldrossod as My Ijord thu Klephant, than
liy his reiil name.
He was a great pet In the regiment, and
for the children tit thu station there was
II better pp* r than to climb
Into the howdah shrieking with hiugli-
er, and have a ride on Mow-
lia. He seemed to enjoy it as
uuoll ns they did, and carried his luird-
■ii with the greatest dignity. He was
really  hanndsome,  as elephants go, ami
inked his hest when adorned wilh his
earlot trappings and harness, and hearing
lie liowdull filled witli merry children;
md it wasu pretty right lo see them after-
vard bestowing upon him his reward in
the shape of) iiieapples.lmnanasand man-
:ucs, ull of which he loved tu stow away
:i his capacious stomach.
I tell you these details that you may
iimlei'f-tand my grief when he suddenly
isappeiin'd OUO night in early spring,
■iy Lord the Klephant had boen restless
for several days, his mahout informed
ue ufioi'wurd- and that evening bo had
managed tu break his chain and had vanished In the darkness . Whether he had
been s] I riled away by a clover thief or
Ind derided that he had worked for man
! ng enough and would now return to his
uiive woods and the society of his kind,
.e never knew, of course, but we missed
him mot*! than one would think, nnd for
line lliuo tlie cry among the ohildrt u was
"If Mowclia were only hero I"
I tried a number of olher elephants for
my Inn.ting, but could not till liis place;
iml, as my duties increased aliiut that
line, my gun rarely left ils case, and my
mrtridge belt hung, unused on the wall.
About three or four years la er I was
invited to spend the Christinas holidays
;ith an Knglisli friend who was giving a
ouso party at his place further up the
ills, 1 easily obtained leave and start-
d with but one servant, llumnn. He had
■ irinerly been Moweiia's mahout, but
iflor tint brute's uncanny disappearance
ic had attached himself to me, ami
rived to Ihi a very bandy follow. Wo
.vere mounted on hardy little pm L-s, and
the lirst day made about fifty miles, spending the night al the hut of one of lhe far-
"•t rangers who hud statiouod hy the gov-
'.■anient as a guard along the edges of
large aud important forests. The next
lay we plunged into the forest itself.
Toward midday we wore startled by hearing a fearful, thunderous roaring, as of
•oiuo monster In Its death agony, At thnt
Utniice 1 did not recognize it us the
. nice of any wild animal I was acquaint-
d with, and turned to Ramon for an
■xplanation. His dark skin was bleached
.0 ashen gray,
"It's a herd of elephants!" he exclalm-
•d, "and they ant sounding their battle
■ry. If tlioy come this way, it moans cer-
liln death. We cr.n'iot escape them."
It certainly seemed ns though they wero
nailed in mir direction, for the noise
(row louder, and we could feel thu
round trembling beneath us at the trnmp-
ng of many feet.
"Follow me, sahib!" cried Ramon, ah
io threw himself from his horse and has-
•ncd to one tif the larger trees, whieh he
egan to ascend with ihe utmost rapidity.
did the same, my progress being himl-
"cd, however, by my heavy riding boots,
,o had no time to secure our ponies, antl
ie frightened animals, us soon as they
.•ere released, sprang nimbly through the
liieketsand disappeared; and with them,
I' course, vanished our only menus nf es-
ipo from the forest, even though the elephants should pass us hy unharmed.
We reached our position of safety none
too soon.   1  could see the heavy forest
branches  shaking violently, and  soon a
huge gray muss broke through shambling
along at a remarkable nite of speed, not
twenty yards from us, and screaming with
vicious rage.
"It's a   rogue elephant,   sahib," said
I ltuuion.   "They are chasing  him  from
■ the herd."
.    Such Indeed  seemed to Iw the rase, for
i a hundred yards behind him came another
i enormous    figure,    whieh   was   headed
| straight for our place of refuge.   As hy
lightning Hash I saw the horrible death
I that meanced  us.    I already  felt myself
! falling to the ground, In a second more
j to be trampled to death under those lm-
I mouse feet.    Hut at that lustatlt 1 beard

j (Ilo   down).    Tho great beast paused,
j "Let-mli,  let-mli!" again he cried; and
! to my astonishment, the creature obedl-
: ently went down upon his knees.
;    Hnnion quickly descended,  calling mo
to follow.   Where a black leads a white
man docs   not lag   behind, ami d wn
I wont,    I did  not understand how the
magical transformation had heen effected,
bin as I turned and caught sight of the
Animal,   I comprehended  It  all; around
tho great foreleg was a chain, the end of
whieh still lrailed o|i the ground,   Thu
quick eyes of tho native had sum it; hu
I knew that l||p animal must have been in
| captivity al sooie Ume, and called out tho
[ won! of jymimuml hoping lhat It would

I although tlie small eyes sl}D gleamed with
nn ugly red  tight, j)ft|j (i])p trunk  waved
mmii.oiiM,. in L.eair. the great creature
had not forgotten his former training.
He approach)*! him cautiously at first, but
presently Uituiou rushed fearlessly up to
the bruieand petted him effusively,tailing
him by every name of endearment. "Ah,
'tlsthou.My Lord ihe Klephani! 'Til thou,
leader of the herd, wiser than tho wise
man of the temple, beautiful as a lotus
bud, strong ils the winds of heaven ! Oh
great bird Mowclia! Thy slave salutes
thee!"
Truly enough It was our old Mowcha
who, in spile of lapse of time and change
of place, had not forgotten his old masters and the familiar word of command.
All this had happened within a fow
inomeiils. Tho groat herd was still crashing through lho forest ull around us,trumpeting wiili rage and shaking Ihe ground
In llieir fury. Should one of them chance
to come near enough to seo us our lives
would not be worth a farthing. Mowcha
seemed to understand the situation perfectly, for, his anger all gone, ho seized
Hamon gently with his strong trunk and
set him upon his back, when' the mahout
usually rides; lie grasped me wilh the
same ease ami placed me beside him.
Then huroso and started off at a good pace
in tho direction opposlto to that taken by
the rest of his fellows and soon their
screams and lliundcrings had died away
tn lhe distance,
We wondered where My Lord the Klephant Intended to convey us, whether to
liis oul ive jungles or in the post again.
Ramon Ir! nl to guide him, but found It
Impossible without lho help of lhe usual
ankus, or goad, so wo confined our efforts
lo keeping our balance ami staying on his
hack, a somewhat dillicull task without
the alii of harness or howdah.
Rrlcfly told, his strong, steady pare
never failed for over ten hours until we
entered the post again. Our approach
had boon descried from afar, and every
living soul hail turned out to view the
spectacle. When it wus perceived that \t
was Mowcha, dear old Moweha, who was
bringing us back in safety, a hearty cheer
broke from all throats, a cheer for My
Lord the Klephant. The children clapped
their hands and shrieked with joy, and
even the soldiers shared the general enthusiasm.
We gave My Lnr th ■ Klephant n feast
vueh as never otephmit had hud before,
but ho did not seem to enjoy the dainties
I spread before him so much as the moment
when the howdah was placed on his back
and he was led forth, surrounded by the
children, whom he once mon1 bore solemnly around lho ] ost,
Kor two days ho remained with us
and was the object of attention and love;
then he became restless, and we fancied
he again longed for his forest home. So
thu cruel chain was stricken off his huge
foot, and My Lord the Klephant with
roses and branches wreathed around his
great i eck aud hanging from his stubby
tusks, was led forth in triumphal procession nnd given his liberty, It was the
best present we could give him; he accepted it gratefully, and soon the. ug1,
gray mass had disap|jivired.
It is as the embodiment of strength, love
nnd gratitude that I remember him; and
because he saved me fnnn a fearful death
that I drink to My Lord the Elephant.—
