VVhat was all this excite- ment? Jack Summers and his brother, James Summers, ""x-qvalffgggg were going on a strange journey. Yes, they were going to f y Africa with ProfessorbHandel. A That evening they took the 9:45 train to New York and the next morning they were on a boat bound for Africa. They were onthe boat about one week when they passed through the Strait of Gibraltar and then sailed through the blue lVIediterranean. They passed through the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, the Strait of Babel Mandel, and the Gulf of Aden, until at last they came to Zanzibar. They had already sent a wireless ahead for guides and supplies, and the next morning they were on their Way into the wilds of Tanganyika Territory. The next day Professor Handel started his scientific work by look- ing for new shrubs and plants. A few days later they came to the shores of Lake Ricwa. In the following Clays Professor Handel discovered some new kind of water plants, and Jack and Iimlwentuhunting, sometimes without much luck. But what was all thlsexcitement among their guides? A few days ago the chief guide reported that a herd of buffaloes had ruined a neigh- boring village and were making straight toward their camp in a stampede. Professor Handel immediately ordered them to get everything ready to move, but just then out of the surrounding forest a herd of buffaloes came charging at them. Jim cocked his gun and fired, and the leading buffalo fell, but just then everything went black for Jim. Bang! bang! Went the Professor's double-barrel riile, and another buffalo fell. Then a buffalo came charging at Jack. Jack shot, but missed. He saw he could not reload in time, so he threw his rifle aside and whipped out his automatic and fired five shots in quick succession, and just then he fainted.
