[PW] Far Country by Rudyard Kipling?

I think there's one of two things going on here: 1) It is not by Kipling or 2) it is not entitled "The Far Country" (not even as an alternative title).
Even using academic short story databases, I found only one short story by Kipling that even references that phrase, and that's "The Limitations of Pambe Serang":  http://www.readbookonline.net/readOnLine/2432/.  Even various complete works of Kipling have no reference to such a title by Kipling (prose or poetry). If Pambe Serang is not it, it might be helpful to have a story synopsis to determine which story it might be (regardless of author).  I did find references to a patron in Florida who has been looking for this very thing since the mid 2000s, so (regardless of the Eckankar references to this story) I seriously doubt it exists (at least as a Kipling authored piece).

 Subject: [PW] Far Country by Rudyard Kipling?

Our patron is looking  for The Far Country by Rudyard Kipling.  We found references to the work online but not the full text and we've looked in all our collected works of Kipling with no success.  We’re wondering if it was published under a different title.  Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you,
