s 



JIM PATTERSON was a strange kind of a 
hunter, for he would never kill any living 
thing unless he needed it for food, or unless 
it attacked him first and his life was at stake. 
Most of the time he hunted with a little black 
box, a camera, and his photographs of wild 
immal life of the African jungle were- famous 
throughout the civilized world. 

Getting pictures was not easy, for he would 
have to steal right up to the haunts of savage 
beasts. Sometimes the wind would shift sud* 
denly, and the huge creatures would become 
aware of his presence and would attack in 
fury Then he fell back on his high-powered 
rifle At other times he would lie hidden in 
tall grass for hours on end, and would feel 
all stiff and weary, just waiting for the beasts 
to come within range of his little black box. 

This day he lay dozing in the village of 
Otapi in (he Roratunga country of Central 

Africa, He had arrived late that afternoon and 
had been welcomed by the old chief, and 
made comfortable in a hut in the compound. 
The chief trusted he would spend a restful 
night; that is, if the tiger didn't attack, This 
tiger was a wary beast, too old to attack other 
animals who were faster and could get away, 
He would make raids on the village; and so 
astute and ^ary was be that they had never 

been able to kill htm, in spite of the numerous 
tiger*traps that had been readied every even- 
ing for him The natives believed he had su- 
pernatural powers and could not be killed by 
any ordinary man. 

It was almost midnight when Jim was 
awakened by a fierce chattering and screech 
ing near his hut. He leaped from his bed, his 
high-powered rifle in his hand at almost the 
same instant, and raced our into the moonlit 
night There was a monkey, tied to a stake 
and unable to flee, and ready to leap upon the 
little beast was a "huge tiger. This must be the 
raider the village feared so. Already men 
armed with spears were tacin-g to the scene. 



The tiger turned from his quarry to face 
them. And even as a dozen strong arms threw 
great spears in the tiger's direction, he leaped 
into the ail with a roar. The high- powered 
rifle cracked, and the tiger fell. But he still 
had fight in him, and made for Jim Patterson. 
But Jim was ready, and again his rifle spoke. 
This time the tiger did not rise. 

Late as it was, fires were built, and there 
was great rejoicing. The natives danced, for 
now the evil spirit had left their village. The 
old chief was overjoyed; He called to Jim, and 
pointed to the monkey, who was still tied to 
the stake, his hair still standing on end with 
fear. They fed him bananas, and the monkey 
calmed down after a while. 

"Seeing as you have saved the Life of this 
monkey," said the chieftain, +, I would make 
you a gift of him. It may seem a trifle in a 
country where there are many thousands of 
his kind; but I assure you he is a most unusual 
animal, and invaluable to any hunter. For one 
thing, his sense of smell will always tell him 
when a fruit is poisoned, or a berry or a nut. 
He has been trained by a great hunter for 
many years. Out of our gratitude we would 
present him to you. You will find him a good 
friend in days of need. His name is Otombo." 

The old chief was. tight. On many an oc- 
casion Jim was thankful he had Otombo with 
him. As they trekked through the forest, Ot- 
ombo would sit on Jim's shoulder, or run far 
ahead, looking the ground over. He would 
bring fruits and nuts and berries to his new 
master, as if he knew Jim had saved his life; 
and "Jim knew that the food gathered by his 
little friend was free from poison or taint. 

Then Jim set off south to the great gorilla 
country to make pictures for an American 
magazine. It was dangerous to come within 
range of the giant beasts, the most powerful 
of the great forests. Otombo went along, as 
usual. Jim travelled light, and had to depend 
on the forests to furnish his food for him. 



The second day out they reached thick 
jungle country, where he knew the gorillas 
made their homes. The mother-gorillas would 
sleep with their young in the high tree-tops,, 
while the male gorillas slept on the ground 
at rhe foot of the trees to protect them. It was 
especially dangerous as many pictures had to 
be made at night by flashlight. 



It was here that Otombo showed his value; 
for Jim was so interested in the pictures he 
was making, that he did not notice how soon 
his food was giving out. Moreover, a group 
of monkeys broke into his camp and carried 
off the major part of his provisions. But Jim 
refused to give up just when his project 
seemed to be succeeding so well. 

Otombo now went off on his own into the 
deep forest, and would often return chatter- 
ing fiercely. Jim knew what he wanted, and 
would follow Otombo to a berry patch, or 
where there was a fresh supply of nuts. But 
one day on the trail, Jim forgot about his little 
pal who went ahead. At the side of the trail 
was a tree just bursting with beautiful red 
fruits, and Jim helped himself generously, 
filling his pockets. His stomach felt empty for 
he had dined on nothing but berries that 
morning. Just as he was about to bite into the 
fruit, Otombo came rushing at him and 
grabbed it from his hand, chattering all the 
while, yelling and scolding, for Jim had not- ■ 
Ice him test the fruit first, Jim heeded the 
monkey's advice, and immediately threw away 
the fruit, for now he was certain that it was 
poisonous. Once more little. Otombo had - 
szved his Fife. * 

The next day Otombo got into trouble— .. 
real trouble. Bounding along the trail ahead 
of Jim, Otombo came on a strange Eittle crea* " 
cure such as he had never seen befose. It was 
a porcupine. Otombo reached out a hand out 
of curiosity, and in a flash drew it back. He 
screamed in pain, for his little hand was full 
of porcupine quills like needles. 

Jim got to the spot as fast as he could go, 
and took little Otombo back to camp. Here he 
carefully drew out the quills, and disinfected 
the wounds. It was very painful, and Otombo 
whined all through the night. 

When Jim set out the next morning, he de- 
cided to let Otombo stay in camp, artd accord- 



ingly tied the little monkey to a long line, 
Otombo did not lik* the idea of staying be- 
hind when there was work to do, and he com- 
plained bitterly. Jim could hear hirn all the 
way down the trail. 

It turned out to be a big day for Jim. His 
luck with his pictures was phenomenal," for 
he found a whole family of gorillas sporting 
about in the warm sun in a large open space, 
and he took many fine pictures of their family 
life. As such pictures had never been made at 
close range, he was highly pleased. 

It was quite late when he returned to his 
camp, tired with the day's exertions. He was 
ravenously hungry, but did not dare pick the 
fruits without his trusty pal to tell him which 
was fit to eat. However, there was a type of 
butternut he knew was good, and he picked 
many of these. They were very nourishing 
and most satisfying. 

As Jim approached his camp, he did not 
hear a sound. This was strange, for the little 
monkey must sense his coming, and he would 
usually be screeching out a loud welcome. 
Perhaps something was wrong. Jim broke tn> 
to a trot. 

Something certainly was wrong. There in 
the clearing near his camp sat Otombo on the 
ground, fascinated by something. Jim could 
not see what it was, but as he came closer be 
saw the huge python. The snake moved its 
head round and round. Otombo seemed para* 
lyzed. He could not move from the spot, al- 
though at any instant the huge snake might 
coil itself around hirn and swallow- him 
whole. The snake was hypnotizing him, so 
that Otombo could neither move nor cry out. 
Closer and closer came the python, Jim did 
not wait. He raised his gun and took careful 
aim. Then he fired. It was a clean shot, right 
through the python's head. The shot broke 
the spell, and Otombo began to chatter in 
fear and then in joy at Jims homecoming. 

"Now it's even," said Jim. "You once saved 
my life, and now I have saved yours. That 
makes us real pals, doesn't it?" 

Otombo must have agreed with what Jim 
was saying, for he jumped onto Jim's shoulder 
and it seemed he would never stop chatter*
