Colonel Dennett of the native Sixth
Infantry, stationed In tho province of
causo that was the fashion, and ho ex
pected tho fellow to assaBslnato him
Bomo day, because that was tho custom
of natiro valuta. Ho thought the event
might happen the first year, then the
second, the third, and when four years
had gone by and no attempt had been
mado ou his life ho called Nizam to him
one day and said:
"How Is It that you have let me live
on so long!"
"May the sahib colonol . llvo for a
thousand years," was tho reply of tho
mnu with tho Impassive face who stood
before him in cringing attitude.
"That's all gammon, Nizam, tand you
know It. Llko all other Hlndoosyou'
have a deadly hatred of the English
You wish for nothing so much ns an
other rebellion and a chance to cut our
throats. D I not speak tho truth'"
"Great and powerful aro tho English,
and their rulo Is merciful and full of
"All sheer hypocrisy on your part, Nl
zam. You'd llko to put your knlfo into
a dozen of us today. You have now
been with mo four years."
"Four long and happy years, sahib
colonel, and It would break my heart
to have you send me away."
"Mora rot There has not been a
week in the four years that I have not
knocked you about. I am quick tam
pered, and I strlko first and talk after
ward. I havo cuffed and kicked you,
and I have had you whipped, and I'm
not fool enough'to think you have pass
ed it all by."
"In my heart thcro Is nothing but
love for the sahib colonel," replied the
"All right Nizam. You won't tell tho
truth, and I can't make you, and so
we will let this subject drop. Take a
pointer from me, howovcr. When you
set out to kill mo inako a quick job of.
It If you don't I'll have you roasted
over a alow Are."
Nizam went away to his room to
ponder. It was truo that he hungered
for the colonel's death. He would have
given everything but bis own life to
bring It about It was truo that for
four years ho had been ready for any
opportunity and had never been with
out poison, but be feared the white
men. They could traco the most sub
tle poisons, and they were always sus
picious. Ho know of several velats
who had klllod their sahibs, and each
and every one hhd been found out and
punished, no matter how sharp they
were. lie bad often wondered if the
sahib colonel Buspected his feelings,
and now that he knew ho did ho might
bo taken out and shot any day. Tho
Hindoo's alarm lasted for a month.
Then he began to pluck up heart again.
The simplest and easiest weapon at
hand was one he had never thought of,
and tho idea caino to him like a flash
one day. An hour later ho was acting
on It Two days later one of the beg
gars visiting the compound to ask for
food carried a basket. When finding
himself alone with Nizam ho said:
"There In the basket you will find, a
cobra fresh, from the Jungle, and the
slightest scratch from, his fangs means
death. Let him bo turned loose In die
sahib colonel's room, and be will do
the rest When serpents are found ev
erywhere, who can say that you had
anything 0 do with this 7"
There, were guests at the mess that
nlfitit, with much drinking and speech
making, and' the colonel came In late
and staggering under bis load of wine.
Heswasnot so far-gone, howover, hut
that ho. remembered certain things,
and whllo being put to bed ho sleepily
"Nizam, you liar and hypocrite, you
know you'd like toimu'rder.me, but you
haven't tho.norve. You are a coward.
You haven't -the courngo of a woman.
I'm drunk tonight and shall sleep like
a log, but I shall havo no fear of you."
"I shall watch over tho sahlb-colonel
as, a mother over her. child," replied tho
valet as he turned his face aside 'to
hldo a smile.
Half an hour later tho basket was
upset In the colonel's chamber and tho
hissing and angry cobra turned loose.
He would find' tho sleeper within tn
minutes, and bury his fangs.ln.his flesh.
Nizam sat down In his own room to
enjoy tho. sensation. In tho course of
an hour ho would go out on tho veran
da and push one of the screens asldo
and give tho cobra a chance to oscapo.
It might ho said he bad been care
less about the screen or they might say
that tho sahib colonel had blundered
around aftor being left for tho night
Thcro was a bright moon, and It
shone full Into Nizam's room. There
woro neither screens nor glass to keep
It out Tho natives of India care nei
ther for heat nor insects. As tho valet
sat crouched on his haunches, wonder
ing and listening and smiling, some
thing camo wriggling over tho sill of
the window and dropped to the floor.
The cobra bad got out through tho
screen of tho colonel's window, but bad
not made off to tho Jungle. For two
minutes the serpent remained quiet
Then it began creeping toward the
I valet His eyes were fastened upon It
' and dilated In horror, but his muscles
1 were paralyzed, and he could make no
1 move. Nearer, nearer, and then the
I robru erected Itself and hissed and
"Nizam, where tho devil aro you?"
shouted the colonel next morning as
I be turned out of bed. "Ob, there you
I ure, you imp of Satnnl Whut dead?
I By George, so he Is, and from tho
swelling I should say it was tho work
of a cobra. Sorry foe be poor beggar
that bo died without getting a whack
