The Long-Legged Ones Were Going At A Tremendous Pace, And, Being Fresh, They Rapidly Overhauled Her; Gradually The Distance Between Them Diminished, And At Length They Had A Fair Course Down A Gentle Inclination Which Led Toward The River.

Here the greyhounds soon made an end of the hunt; their game was within a hundred yards, going at top speed:

But it was all up with the elk; the pace was too good, and they ran into her and pulled her down just as the other hounds had come down upon my scent.

We were cutting up the elk, when we presently heard old Bluebeard's voice far away in the jungle, and, thinking that he might perhaps be running another elk, we ran to a hill which overlooked the river and kept a bright look-out. We soon discovered that he was true upon the same game, and we watched his plan of hunting, being anxious to see whether he could hunt up an elk that had kept to water for so long a time.

On his entrance to the patina by the river's bank he immediately took to water and swam across the stream; here be carefully hunted the edge for several hundred yards down the river, but, finding nothing, he returned to the jungle at the point from which the river flowed. Here he again took to water, and, swimming back to the bank from which he had at first started, he landed and made a vain cast down the hollow.
