It was plain to see that the elephant had felt the prick of the Mahout's ankus.
On he came, amid a rising roar of approval, Speed in gorgeous robes perched on high, 295 ankus raised.
The ankus flew sparkling, and buried itself point down thirty yards away, between the trees.
This time I had my ankus with me, so that in case he should run away again I could prick his neck and make him behave.
