ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 March 1914

ELEPHANT STICKING. Uler tliu favorite sport of tlio Nuba Arabs in iho Soudan, the roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame and wild. In that far away corner of Africa, the most popu lar form of amusement in sporting circles is to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs—011 horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives agraphic I account of a morning's sport with these bold barbarians. Klephant hunting, under any circumstances is a strenuous and venturesome pursuit,, and the white sportsman, with the best of beaters and the heaviest armaments, often carries his lifo in his hands. J3ut the game as played by the Arabs ot the Nuba Mountains is far more thril ling, and calls for an iron nerve, a superb horsemanship, and a reckless daring. The elephants graze on the plains and river lands,grouped together 111 herds. Tlio Arabs, lean, wiry r.th letes, most of them, with keen eyes, leave their villages in the mountains ill August, the be...

PAINFUL SUNBURN. I have seen a child (n boy of cloven) crying bitterly from the pain caused by the suuburning of his legs, which hail been exi>osi?d all day iong on tho sea-beach to the full glaro of tho mid summer mil, writes I'lorence Stacpoolo lecturer to the National Health So ciety of England. jfany people forgot that sunburn often causes as much pain as frostbite, and sunburnt legs often cause a lot of suffering from which it would be quito easy to protcct them b.v greasing them all over before the child goes out in the morning. Tho nicest thing for the purposo is olive oil, lanoline, or vaseline, but tins would come rathe,- expensive if tho , summer should be a lung, hot one, and j if there should be a large number of legs to be operated upon. It is, therefore, well to remember that any kind of clean bite lien greaso will answer as well. The grea.se should be what cooks call "rendered" before it is used for an ointing the skin. The process of "ren dering" is quite simple. ...
