    Depicts the attempts by 'Mr. Griffin of the C.C.S' and 'Ensign Green of the C.R.R.' to shoot elephants in Ceylon. During their expedition they observe several young elephants 'running playfully among the herd, the emblems of innocence' (a quote from James E Tennent) but after firing his gun at this herd, Griffin is pursued by one of the adult elephants. The last illustration shows how Green manages to slay this elephant, which saves the life of his friend, and drives away the rest of the herd.
