Original text on this topic:
Stories told him by the hunters of the nomadic tribes in the forests of Borneo which he visited. These hunters are ordered by the village chiefs to kill the rhinos, which they hunt with razor-sharp lances as thick as a man's arm. They get very little reward. The horn is given to the chief in return for a little rice and the skin to the trader in return for some cloth, tobacco, salt, or petrol.
