Added to this, he knew that his "boys" muet by this time be getting a very nice little collection of gems to? gether for him, and he felt a very nat? ural anxiety about them now that this detestable nbw law had about doubled both the legal power of search and the penalties for being found ont Loo Chai's almond eyes wandered slowly from tbe dog to the Jew, and his Bead began to wag again, bnt this time the other way, and after a little pause he said slowly and meditatively: "Fifty pound tlen per cent not good enough dlis time, Missa Lonefelt, not by big heap.

The officials objected, but tbe Kaffir stuck to his point and his dog and even? tually carried both through, for the oom pound system was new and unpopular then and native labor was very scarce; so at last, as he was turning away to offer his services elsewhere, bo was call? ed back and allowed to take his enr in, for he was a tine, athletic, likely look? ing boy, and after all if the dog gave any tronble a fatal illness would not U a very dJ Hon lo thing to arrange for. The Pondo proved to he an excellent workman, and so little was seen or fceard of tbe dog that its existence was forgotten long before the nsoal two months' engagement was np. "Byrne by, "as the Kaffir called himself in ac? cordance with tbe common oostom of taking more or less grotesque English names, found plenty of old acquaint? ances in tbe compound, as both Loo Chai and Mr. Lowenfeldt had foreseen that he wonld, and by virtue of sundry invisible transactions between bim and them his dog improved rapidly in rai? ne, although its presence became even more unobtrusive than ever. About ten days before yonng Byms by's time was np one of his most inti? mate friends left the compound aftei passing blamelessly throngh tbe then usual formalities nuder the hands ol the searching officials, and that night contrived tc convey throngh Loo Chai and one Ah Fop, bis servjfjui. tb? wal a_se ovws to tte, lTowenielSl that ihe j ondo's dog would BOOM out wi tn such lining to its SBOOad skin a^ t _ iced broker felt justified ia estimating ((rom ?10.000 to ?18,-400 in value.

This time e was the bearer of a message to bis 'oudo chum to the effect that if on his om ing out he would take the dog to a ertaiu place other than tbe bouse of joo Chat be would get ?800 for it iu dace of the ?100 that his master bad iromisvd bim. To this tho Pondo, bo? ng easy of morals aud longing greatly or the possession of wives nud cattle in lia own land, incontinently cou mu ted. Tho reason for this leading astray of he untutored savage may be quickly leen in the fact that 10 p-ur cont on, tay, ?10.000 would be ?1,000, and this, frith the amount of tbe bill, would uako ?1,250, which, when Mr. how ?nf i hit came to think quietly over the natter, seemed to be a most outrageous [-rico to pay toa yellow skinned heathen tot a double skinned dog, and, ifter due deliberation, he decided not to pray it, if he could find any means of wading payment, Tbe shortest and easiest way to do thia was to procure the arrest and cou diction of Lou Chai as an L D. B. before the Pondo got out, and to this eud he succeeded iu bribing Ah Foo with cash down aud the promise of more to plant four "traps," which he took from bis fo, in a convenient place in his mantel But, as th-.rn li more of a sort ai_.

The .dog dodged iu among tba horses' legs am' got clear away to tba eager arms of Ab Foo, who was waiting for it in a half ruined tiu shanty about 100 yards farther down tbe road. The po? lice, always suspicious of anythicg like a Karhr cmnete, ordered Byuieby and his companions to stop, bnt the Pondo and one or two of the others who knew the worth of the quarry made a desper? ate effort to get through and continue the chase, with the result that they Were speedily ron down, collared and inarched off to the tronk, where, being able to give no satisfactory reasons for their anxiety to catch the dog, they were summarily fined 5 shillings each and kicked out Almost at the same moment that they regained their liberty an occurrence, whioh The Diamond Fields Advertiser described the next morning as "a shock? ing tragedy," took place jost outside the bar of the Central hotel. Mr. Augus? tus Lowenfeldt had been taking a few whiskies and sodas with some friends and was jost bidding them good by to go and see abont some important busi? ness when he happened to look across the street and saw a well dressed China? man walking np the opposite side, witk a hairless Chinese terrier at bis heels. His friends saw his hands go np to hil collar. His fat cheeks and low forehead suddenly became a deep bluish purple, and bis eyes, bloodshot and staring, started half ont of their sockets. Fum? bling feebly with his fast tightening cellar, he half gasped, half gurgled: "Dog?ten thou?done, by -??I" And then he reeled back and pitched sideways into the road, and before they oonld get him back into the bar he was dead.
