sharply while giving it food that I lost patience and gave it rather a severe beating, which I regretted afterward, as from that time it disliked me more than ever. It would allow my Malay boys to play with it, and for hours together would swing by its arms from pole to pole and on to the rafters of the veranda with so much ease and rapidity that it was a constant source of amusement to us.

The rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sumatranus) still abounds, and I continually saw its tracks and its dung, and once disturbed one feeding, which went crashing away through the jungle, only permitting me a momentary glimpse of it through the dense underwood.
