'ihe engineer made further threats, and the fanatic ptuck to his point, and as a result he was arrested as a' dis ordu ly pej-son and throw n into jail. When locked up he appeared to he cowed, and after a few hours he sent for the engineer and said: "Sahib, I denied your survey, and 1 was wrong to do so. I spoke to you as I should not. and I am sorry for iu I will make you no more trouble." "I thotmht you would come to your senses," sneered the other.

"Wiil the Sahih lie fair with me? AViil he take only half?" "Is it t rear m e?" "It is tor.isure," whispered the old man "a great treasuie.
