334 MISS E. M. SHAEPE Olf BIJTTEEFLIES [-A-pr. 3, pipe I sat down for a short rest upon the huge grey head. The second bull succumbed about half a mile from where I had first fired. It was now well on in the afternoon, and my " skerm " was about six miles away ; so, leaving the animals where they w-ere, I went to the camp, packed up my goods, and came back again. It was then close to sunset, and I had only time to take two quick shots with the camera and make a cut in the stomach and bush the carcass up for the night. I then went to the second bull, cut him open, bushed him up, and then in the pitch darkness proceeded to make a large skerm, for it was to be permanent for several days at any rate. Next morning the carcasses had swelled up considerably, but I managed to take a few measurements and make some sketches before skinning them. For eleven days I stayed at that skerm, cleaning the bones, dr3ing the skins, and watching the boys, for they had an annoying habit of throwing the smaller bones away ; it may be imagined that, with the quantity of small scraps of meat lying about in the hut sun, in a few days the place had grown — well, unpleasant ! I stayed about that country a few days longer, then brought the specimens into Salisbury — not without a very considerable amount of trouble. A few days after that I left Salisbury with the troops for Matabililand, served through the whole of the war, and then in January I came home. The Ehinoceroses preceded me by a few weeks. One of them will be set up in the Natural History Museum at South Kensington ; of the other, the skeleton goes to the Cambridge University Museum, and the skin to the Hon. Walter Eothschild's Museum at Tring. 4. List o£ Butterflies collected by Captain J. W. Pringle, R.E., on the March from Teita to Uganda, in British East Africa. By Emily Mary Sharpe \ [Eeceived March 20, 1894.] (Plate XIX.) The collection of Butterflies described in the present paper was made by Captain Pringle, R.E., during his survey for the projected railway to Uganda on behalf of the Government, under the auspices of the Imperial British East-African Company. The care with which the elevations have been recorded by him renders the collection of especial value to the student of the geographical distribution of Lepidoptera, and it is much to be regretted that such an accurate observer as Captain Pringle was not enabled to make a longer stay in East Africa. In this communication I have referred especially to Mr. Kirb/s ' Catalogue of Diurnal Lepidoptera,' to Dr. Poland Trimen's work on South-African Butterflies, and to a paper by Mr. Hampson ' Communicated by Dr. R. Bowdler Sharpe, F.Z.S.
