Hindoo who was bringing some fancy
chickens over to exhibit at the coming
chicken show. He had thqm in coops

two codks and four hens. and very
beautiful birds they :were, There was
a cockney Englishman aboard who
sported a splendid diamond stud in his
shirt bosom which was the envy of ev
ery one, especially the women. One
fine morning after breakfast, when we
were all beginning to get into our
steamer chairs on deck for the day, we
heard a loud talking between the H1in
doo and the cockney.
"I'll cut him upl" howled the cock
"You'll cut up nothing," retorted the
"Do you keep the cock for that pur
pose?" cried the cockney.
"You call me thief?" shrieked the
By this time a dozen or more of us
had gathered around the coop where
the two men were disputing, many of
us hopeful that the monotony of the
voyage was to be broken by a fight.
"It's a bloody swindlel" shouted the
cockney. "This leather faced 'eathen
'as these cocks and 'ens trained to pick
for valybles. One on 'em 'as nipped
my diamond and swallowed it. I was
leanin' over the coop, when 'e flung
his pIll at it and pulled till 'e got it

go to the cockney for his diamond, f250 t
to the Ilindoo for his cl:!kens and 500 81

lost his diamond, agreed, but the Hin- 0
doo declared that his siX chleckens were U
the delight nf his heart and declined. I
He 1inally agreed provided one little Ju
hen that was his second self be ex
cepted. The cocknoy declared that he t
saw that hen when the diamond was
taken from him in a corner of the coop V
with her bead under her wing. So t
eager were we for the sport that we
excepted her from the lottery. The' 1
cockney was not sure whether a cock t
or a hen had stolen his Jewel, but he C
was sure that particular hen had noth- v
I ing to do with the theft. c
A committee was appointed to make 11
I a plan for the drawing. The cockney t
was appeased, for he seemed to have
all to gain. The Hindoo had his dia- a
mond, and possession was nine points f
of the law. The possessor was surly, a
declaring that he had counted on these'
particular chickens to give him a start
in the land presided over by the king r
- of birds. He made it a conditibn that
the chickens were not to be slaughter- a

a doo would have a fit. lHe made as
Smuch fuss as if he was to lose a child.
-A cock was slaughtered, his insides ex
amined, but no diamond. Then the
other cock was sacrificed, with no bet-t
ter success. The four hens followed,
, the Hindoo's lamentations increasing ~
D in arithmetical progression as each of 1
r his pets fell under the ax. When the
a last lien's head was chopped off and no
diamond found, we all looked at each

The cockney changed front and said tl
he must have been mistaken in the hen

B the Hlndoo again and it looked as if

a bargain was a bargain. The Hindoo
had not consented to the killing of the
chicken before he had been paid the
price, and the cockney had been treat
ed in the same businesslike fashion.
