The howdahs are generally for people who are not accustomed to elephants.
I have been out with a line of seventy-six elephants and fourteen howdahs.
There was one of the farm-servants who had been working almost the whole time at the Howdahs.
I thought there were too many elephants for our six howdahs, but it turned out that I was mistaken, for we had capital sport.
Looking out the windows again, they saw several elephants, all handsomely caparisoned, and with howdahs on their backs.
There were such a number of elephants, that the clash at meeting was very great, and very destructive to the howdahs and hangings.
It knows all about "howdahs and rajahs and things" and it can turn pounds and shillings into roopees while you wait.
At this time in the Howdahs, which till now had been quieter than usual, strange sounds began to be heard.
On the backs of the splendid tuskers intended for the shooters were howdahs fitted with gun rests and seats.
The princes and nobles sit in these howdahs to the number of two or four, and are very gorgeously attired in Oriental costumes.
