Loo Chai's almond eyes wandered

He had a very disreputable looking
mongrel under his arm, and this with
only partly intelligible eloquence be
strenuously declined to be parted from.
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?

for he was a tine, athletic, likely look?

The Pondo proved to he an excellent

cordance with tbe common oostom of

Chai and Mr. Lowenfeldt had foreseen
that he wonld, and by virtue of sundry
invisible transactions between bim and

more unobtrusive than ever.
About ten days before yonng Byms

Tho reason for this leading astray of

Tbe shortest and easiest way to do
thia was to procure the arrest and cou

succeeded iu bribing Ah Foo with cash
