Captain Lnnncer was in
t'Oltiniunil of the m'tivtnry ijoot nt
scr, ami liadin Ii ia dotttcbnicr.tn largo
body of natlvo troops. IIo paradi'd
I t h soldiers for inspection, and puttliet
tltrougli n thorough drill. Tho ovolu
tionn of tho haitallion vcro preformed
with promptness and precision ; and
tho manual of arms was nearly equal
to that of tho best drilled Europoan
troops. I had heard that thesn Sepoys
were not so well disciplined as tho
English soldiers; but Lanscor assured
mo that their discipline was well nigh
perfect. In sizo they aro smaller than
tho English, but they readily adapt
themselves to tlo light uniform nnd
aro very hardy.
Our second cvoning at rudsor was
spent at Captain Lanteer's quarters,
and after supper wo worked our way
into story telling.
"Gentlemen," said Lansecr, as wo
fillod our pipes tho second time, "I can
tell yon a vorj curious story of circum
stances that havo transpired in this
plaeo within a month. If you can
think of nothing bettor, I will give
. Of courso we could think of nothing
better, and tho vote was unanimous
that ho should proceed
About lour weeks ago, commences
tho Captain, a wealthy zcmindar.nam-
ed JlooHlan Kahn
'Zemindar," interrupted Ben Gilruy,
Aecmidaris simply a landowner,
replied Lanseer. As I was saying, tho
zemindar IIoosiaA Kahn was found
one morning dead in his bed, with
throat cut in a most shocking manner.
It wns not. cut clean across., ns n sin
ciuo would navo tiono it, but it was
hacked frightfully. Upou tho floor,
close by tho beilsido, was found vi razor
covered with blod, its stout horn han
dle broken, and tho nhnnk bent.. Tho
zomidar had Ixon an excellent man,
respected by he peoplo, hot high and
low. and his sho"kinr death was
causo of much excitement. And first
it was thought the murder had been
committed lor tho purposo of robbery
but not fin article had been stolen from
tho bouse. Tho English wnt h.
jewels, tho purso, tho leathern pocket-
book, winch, with tho clothinv initio
room woro undisturbed. I was called
to tho scene of murder as soon as
was discovered, and with other oflieera,
did my best to unravel the mystery.
There had been some struggling on
part of Uoosian, as was evident from
tho condition of tho bed ; but ho
not struggled much. Wo found a large
bunch of liair upon tho pillow, whoro
tho murdror had hold the head back
whilo the futal work wua being done;
and this, together with the broken
handle and bent shank of tho razor,
signaled to us that the assassin roust
have been a fellow of immense physi
cal power. ;
while I wa gathering up hia bair,
ono ot my companions called attention
to some marks upon tho floor. A quan
ity of blood had run down upon agrass
mat at tho sido of tho bed, and not fxr
from this, upon tlio floor, were several
bloody prints,: which ppcared to mo
to havo been mado by a man's hand.
They wero certainly not tho print of a
human foot. . I could only account for
them upon the supposition that the
murderer had slipped and fallen, or
had been pushed over by tno struggling
zemindar, nnd that hero was where his
bloody hands had -struck. The win
dow was open, and wo found stains of
blood upon the stool very much in tho
shapo of those on the floor. This sleeping-room
was all our chamber, and the
munfercr"hadvmndo his exit by tho
window into the tree, .tho limbs of
which drooped toward the houso.
Thu first person whom wo called as
witness was an old woman who had
been cmplo3-ed for somo 3-oars in tho
family. Tho r.cmindar's wife was just
then too dcepl affected to give us any
coherent information. Tho old wo-
n an, whoso name I think, was Zaloa,
recognized tho razor as having belong
ed to her master, nnd she alf.o showed
us tho little closet whero it hud been
kept. Tho closet door had been open,
cd, and tho razor had been taken from
tho dressing case, and that too, in tho
dark, from all which it appeared that
tho deed had been done by somi famil
iar with tho premises. J hero hud been
no robbery, so we were led to tho lur
titer conclusion that the murder had
been an act of vengeance. And who
could havo entertained such feeling to
ward IIoDsian Kahn? Wh had ques
tioned Zaloa, but she shook her head.
She did not reply with that promptness
which might have been expected trom
one who had no suspicions; but she
seemed rather to avoid tho subject.
1 questioned her closely, but she was
not inclined to speak.
. "Do you know," said I, "if any ono
of tho servants in tho houso had any
fcclintrsol ill-will against vour mas
She begged mo to ask her mistress.
Tho tnistrt'83 had just tht n entered tho
room, nnd, nsslit, heard tho remark,
she npolie. She said thero waS a ser
vant who had much enmity against her
husband ; and alio named tho klud
"Khidmutger," interrupted, Ben.
Gilroy, taking his pipo from bin mouth,
"whnt s that?"
"A khidmutger is a table servant,"
exclaimed the Captain, "llns khid
mutger's namo was Gholam, and
was tho most vowcr'ul fellow on tho
place. I know him well. Ho was high
tempered ' and bold, but I had never
thought him vindictive. Itsecms that
two or three days before the zemindar
had punished Ghokim for somo slight
mistlemennor, and tho latter had de
clared that ho would havo vontrennco.
Finally tho woman Zaloa confessed that
sho heard tho man make such a threat;
and sho had hesitated telling it because
Gholam was a gnad-heartod man, and
had been kind to her.
Gholam seemed utterly astonished
when ho was accused of the murdor.
At first be pretended to think we woro
not in earnest ; but when ho lound that
wo meant' what we said, he protested
his innocence in tho most vehement
manner. We knew tho superstitious
nature of tkoeasto to which ho belong
ed, and wo expected that ho would bo-
tray his guilt when ho behold tho
bloody corpse of ins victim but it was
not so. t.e was horror-stricken at tho
sight, but quickly recovering himsolf
ho walked directly to tho bod, and pla
cing his hand upon tho cold brow ot
old master, ho called on tho avenging
God to witness that ho was innocent
of tho crime My belief in tho guilt
of Gholam was staggered, and yet cir
cumstances wero strongly against him.
Wo knew that tho murtlcror must
havo been not only well acquainted
the houso, but also acquainted with
zemindar's private affairs; and
woro Jurthcrmoro confident tnat
deed had been one of revengo.
Gliolum wua nrrofitod and confined,
and two days afterward he was triod
and condemned. Still ho was not im
mediately executed, as' is generally
tho manner in capital cases in
country. His protestations of inno
cenco wero so strong and consistent,
and Ii is previous character so well
known, that tho Judgo sont him back
to prison, there to remain awhile pro
vious to his execution.
Uoosian Kahn had furnished con
siderable provisions and forago for
regiment, and after his funeral I went
to his bouse to look ovor his account,
which ho hud kept with his own hand.
1 was nccomnained bv Mr. Cranston,
ono of my lieutenant). It was in
evening when we reached tho house,
and as all tho zen.indar's paper
books woro in the room where ho
Blcpt. wo wero conductod thittior,

bearing candlos. Tho bod was still
its old place; but tho clothing had boon
exchanged, and tho blood stains
been washod from the floor.- Zaloa
the candles upon the table, and
withdrew; and shortly afterwards
wero joined by Hoosian's clerk, an
Abbas. As there was quite a current
air coming in at tbe opn ylndow,
moved iho table up into one cornor,
opposite the footof tho bod, - to tako
tho lightfrom the flickering draft, af
tor which Ben Abbas produced tho
books and papers. We had boon en
gaged over tho account half an hour,
when a noise out of doors nrrcsted out
attention.' It was a chftttoring sound.

"Abba cried, tho clerk, "that is
"And who is Kaka?"
"lie was mv master s baboon," re
plied Bon Abbas. "IIo ran away more
than h week ago."
"Why did ho run nwny?'
"Because Uoosian ' Kahn whipped
him. IIo enmo into this very roorp
while his master was out, and ransack
ed the clothes from the bod. Uoosian
caught him In the very act, and b"nt
him without mercy. Kaka leaped
from tho window and ran nwny into
tne woods, nnd hns not been seen
As tho clerk censed spoakinrr, I
heard the baboon mounting tho tree,
ami I at once extinguished tho lights
and bndo my companions back with
mo into tho cj.trcme corner behind tho
table; for Iliad a great 'stiriosity to set
what his babo )nship would do. I re
membered tho nnimnl very well, as I
had frequently scsn him about the
premises. Tho zemindur had cap
tured him when young, and reared
him for a pet. Lp the tree the fellow
came, nnd presently ho swung himself
npon tho stool, and thence to tho room.
Tho moon was shining brightly, and
as tho rays shono in through tho win
dow, leaving us in tho shado, wo could
observe tho movement of tho interlo
per without being ourselves detected,
and you will remember, furthermore,
that wo had tho table ns a screen.
Kaka was one of tho lungoo? species,
standing live nnd a nan high when
erect, and presenting a pretty good
specimen of physical developctnont.
As 1 saw him enter tho room, looking
so ugly aud dangerous, I instinctively
chipped my band to my pistol, l'er-
haps j'oti will imagine tho suspicion
which had already dashed upou me.
This brute an not the khidmutger had
killed tho zemindar. Crouching bo
hjnd tho tnblo, nnd remaining perfect
ly still, wo watched tho fellow'a move
ments. As ho entered the room ho
stood erect upon his legs and gnzod
upon the bed; then bo went to tho
closet and opened tho door and took
down tho dressing case, tho content,
ot which ho overhauled nlmost as sy
leinnticallv as a man would havo dono
Presentlyho utterod a loud cry, and
dashed the caso upon tho floor, and
then sprang toward tho bed. Jfo seiz
cd the clothing and toro it off in quick
succession, and when tbo bruto found
that he was only spending his rogo up
on inaminato substances, he caught
ono of tho pillows and tore it into
frngmcnts, scattcringtho fenthers over
I could bear tho sceno no longer
As tho lungoor moved back, atter
having rent tho pihow, ho stood di
rectly ir. tho moonlight, and I think
never behold u moro savago and repul
sive looking monster. .1 carefully
raised my pistol ubjvo tho table und
uimcd it at his head. I am not apt to
miss my mark, and I did not do so
this instance As I fired, tho fellow
reeled and clapped both his hands to
his ears. In nn inotant 1 was upon
my feet, with my sword drawn, and
before tho brute could recover him
self, lhnd run him through tho heart.
By this timo tho family was aroused,
and in a little whilo wo wero investi
gating tl subject of the murder under
tho light ol theso now ami wondortul
circumstances. One look at tho feet
of the lungoor enabled mo to account
for tho curious blood prints which
hud attributed to tho bund of a man.
There wero tho very outlines and pro
portions which had boon stamped upon
tho floor. And now, too, I could ac
count for the breaking of tho shame,
and for the muss of hair thai, hud been
pulled from tho head of the murdered
man. Hoosian's widow, as soon
sho saw(ttio body of Kak a, i nd heard
our story, cried out that tho luniroor
hud killed her husband. Sho inform
ed us that Kukit had been in tho habit
of seeing hia master shavo, and that
several times ho hud beo found with
th 3 razor in hand standing before
mirror. Then sho told us what Bjrt
Abbas hud already communicatod
how that Uoosian had whipped
lungoor severely, ana tnat tho bruto
thereupon r.ut into tho woods.
On tho following morning the native
oflicers woro called in, and after a very
snort consultation, it wasdecidod that
Gholam v.-hh innocent, and that
lungoor had dono tho murdorous tleod.
There could bo no mistake about it.

The Peculiarities of Paris—The

If there aro any dwelling-houses)

constructed on a 1st go scnlo, the lower

and the upper sLorics for drvellings.
The different classes of society are ar

perfect stratification. The first flcor
above tho storo is rented to tho moVo
wealthy, while the poorest occupy tho

This city shows no signs of a great

tudes of tourists flock hero to soo the
sight of the wonderful city. Tako
these thrco classes away,, and Paris
would become a place of insignificance
Yet rrjoro and moro tho tide of travel
flows toward it, and each year adds tu
its attractions. Under tho hand of tho
magician who sits in the Tuilerics, tho
whole, city in being transformed. For
merly the streets were narrow, crook
ed and irreular, and tho houses ill
shaped, ugly and inconvenient.
A considerable portion of the city
still retains this character; tho light
ot tho sun seldom pen'itratig tho dark
alleys, and the filth sondingup a stench
most ofl'ensivo to tho adventurer who
dares to invade their precincts. 'But,
ns fast as possiblo, tho old buildings
are being torn down and -new ones
erected, and now wide and regular
streets are laid out, and adorned with
tree, and fountains, and statues.
None aro losers by this, for the" prop
erly is increased in valuo more than
enough to inako up tho loss sustained
in tlu destruction of tho old buildings.
The same tiling is needed in somo ofthe
old quarters in New York and Boston.
The new buildings aro nearly all 6ov
e. stories high, with beautiful fronts,
nnd balconies at most of tho stories.
Tho streets aro naved with an asphal
tum cement, and is so smooth as to be
almost noivclcss. Napoleon may have
a double object in improving the city.
1 ho streets aro so wide and tne pave
ment such that thero can bo no more
barricades in Paris.
The Difference Between the
English and the French.
A Cleveland gentleman who is now
traveling in Europo thus notices one
of tho differences between the English
and the French. Ho says:
"Tho Frenchman's tendency to talk
is in striking contrast with English
reticence Hero each railway cur
riago is ulivo with constant chatter.
Silence is tho rulo in England. There
you ask u question and aro reterrod to
an oflleial. Hero the query is answor
ed with almost endloss volubility and
repitition. The two nations, aro quite
different, and it is not difficult already
to see the source of that mutaul dislike
winch prevailed for eer.tnrios." '
How Queen Victoria Travels.
A London correspondent of the Now
Orleans Republican writes hm follows:
"Spouking of tho Quoon, 1 am re
minded of a little rido which she took
the other day, and which will show
how exelleut ore tho English railways,
and tho high rate of f-pecd that ia at
tained upon them, llor Majosty,
nccompaniod by hor family, came from
Balmoral, in Scotland to Windsor Cas
tla, ndistance of 0'J2 nnlos, in 18 hours
being about 32 miles an hour. No
otopa, except those requisite for taking
in wood and wator, were made. Great
caro was taken to insnrothe comfort
4 tho Queen. None ofthe publio wore
admitted to the stations southof Perth
and tho servants of the company wero
instructed to perform any necessary
work on the platform without noise or
cheering. The royc Kir roust be alel
kabe." .? .--. "-
