In the jungle. V 6

T HERE are
hundreds of
strange wild crea-
tures in the Jungle,
terrible savage/
animals and pois-
onous snakes! In /
the jungle of India,
and the jungle -( "
means the great forests and uncultivated tracts of land, live the fierce
Tiger, the Elephant that can be caught and tamed and is so useful
to man, the horrible Cobra which is one of the most fearful of all
snakes, thousands of Monkeys, and hundreds upon thousands of'wonderful
creatures, a few of which we sometimes see in menageries.
In Africa, among other wild creatures, is to be found the finest
of Lions and also that timid and peculiar animal, the Giraffe.
But the be,: thing for you to do, my little, friend, is to take
my hand and let me lead you to where these str.ing:, beasts live.
.'.wi come along, and don't be nervous.
What is the first thing we see on the cover of this book? Dear
me, enough to make some people
nervous A Tig-cr-hunt, and the fierce
wild cat, for the Tiger is really a
great eat, has spring upon the
poor Elephant; but the danger does '
,-. very-long, for the men on /
the back of the Eleliha.lt, with the \ '

guns in their hands shoot that Tiger, and also the one in the

long grass that you can see. Very proud, I 'can assure you,

feel these men, for it's a fine thing to shoot the savage Tiger.

Now what do we see when we open the book? Why

we find ourselves in Africa, and behold 'a Zebra kicking a Wild

Dog that has attacked him. Serve the Wild Dog right, I think.

In the next picture we come to a mother Monkey holding

out its arms to its baby, just as a human mother does to a

J human baby.

On the first colour page we see

-- another Tiger hunt, in India,

and it's all over

Switch the Tiger

hm rfor he has been.


OnThe next

drawing takes us

back to Africa,

and here we see the head of a Hippopotamus coming out

of the water. On the bank of the river is a pretty Deer, and

he is looking at the Hippopotamus in wonder, we cannot blame

him for this, for the Hippopotamus is a truly hideous creature.

On the next page we have a picture of the Giraffe and

in the background the hunter who is trying to catch him. This

he will find very difficult to do, for the Giraffe has very long

legs and is wonderfully swift of foot. His home is tropical Africa.

Then we come to a striped Hyaena fast asleep in his

lair, and opposite to him a sort of cousin of his, a Wild Dog.

These Wild Dogs are terrible thieves, and this one has been

after the poultry, and so has been shot.

Wolves too do a great deal, of damage, you can see them

in the next colour picture attacking some Sheep; they are to

be found nearly all over the world, but there are none now in

the British Isles.

Then we come to a couple of Leopards, one black and

the other spotted. The black kind is rather rare, and all kinds

are savage, treacherous animals; their homes are in Asia and

Over the page we come face to face with an African Lion,

the King of Beasts, as he is called.

SHe is certainly a noble-looking animal. Not only is he

strong enough to carry an Ox, but he is wonderfully fleet of

foot, and his roar is like thunder. At the feet of the one in

the picture, is the Deer he has killed for his dinner, while at

a safe distance stand some Jackals, waiting to eat what the

Lion chooses to leave for them.

Saying good-bye to the handsome

Lion we come to an ugly Rhinoceros

looking at an ugly Crocodile

in the water. I don't think that

either of these animals thinks much

of the other, though doubtless each

considers himself very beautiful.
The Crocodile and his

cousin the Alliga-

tor are found in

all the warmer

parts of the world, -

but happily not

in Europe. The o--

Rhinoceros has _

its home in India and Africa.

At the bottom of the page we come to a Cheetah hunting a

Deer. In India the Cheetah is trained to hunt in this fashion, for it

runs with remarkable speed.

And now as there are. no mo--e pictures there is nothing more

to write about, so we will say good-bye till our next merry meeting.
