So he politely says no and leaves Africa for some years. May the drums and voices of thousands sing his praises.

Setting[ edit ] The book is set in East Africa. Magic, prayers, songs, exhortation, suggestion, ceremonies, fetishes, and certain specifics and mechanical processes were employed only by the medicine-men or medicine-women; other specific remedies or procedures were proprietary, generally among a few old women in the tribe; while many vegetal remedies and simple manipulations were of common knowledge in a given locality.

He showed that the greater toll attributed to the lions resulted from a pamphlet written by Colonel Patterson instating "these two ferocious brutes killed and devoured, under the most appalling circumstances, Indian and African artisans and laborers employed in the construction of the Uganda Railway.

In some tribes he was called to treat all diseases, in others his functions were specialized and his treatment was regarded as successful in only a certain line of affections. Tensions between native workers and Sikhs brought in from British East India to work on the project coolies threaten to stop the project.
