There could bo no doubt as to their identity, for the case had Ueneral Hamilton's name on it, and they were in due course returned to their rightful owner.

With these, they say, they killed on an average twenty-seven head of buffaloes a day. The fact that they did all this with one bullet led to tho following cross-question : — ' How did you kill all these buffaloes with only one bullet V 'Wai, we shot a buffalo ; I stood on one side, and my brotheron theother. Brother fired ; the ball passed into the barrel of mv iifle. The next time I fired, and brother caught my ball in his rifle. We kept up the hunt for twelve months, killing nearly two hundred buffaloes a week, and yet brought homo tho same ball we started with.' ♦ ♦ ?
