THE GOLD BRACELET I 3K A dating theft bad been committed on board the American gun brie Warrior, which was at the time lyiiiR about two miles off the southwest coast of Hindu Stan. A native, liar in e lieco fascinated by peculiar gold bra relet worn by Mrs. Bar dolph, the captain's wife, had suddenly snatched it from her arm -and jumped into a boat. A boat was lowered, in jumped the captain and half a dozen sailors, and they were soon in pursuit of the thief. lhe men. pulliug with a will, soon gained the spot where he had landed and left his boat. "Follow me, some of you!" shouted the captain. ."The rest of you stay here and watch the boat. The captiiu sprang into the thick nndcrbrush, following the native's trail shown by the trampled down bushes. He had not proceeded far, however, when he came upon three distinct paths. Which had the fugitive taken? So hard was the ground that he had left no. tracks. Four men were with the captain. He sent two of them along the path branching to the left, the other two on the one opposite, while he took that look ing straight ahead. The young man kept on for a full hour without seeing any sign of the robber. Then he paused to recover his breath. At that moment be heard a snarling noise behind him. He turned to behold a huge tigress dashing swiftly along past him, The ferocious beast had not seen him. The sight of this monster would have deterred many a man in the captain's situation from venturing farther. But Bardolph was a person of indomitable resolution and was rather headstrong withal. No danger could turn him from a purpose once formed. On he went, to at length discover the native ahead of him in a thick grove, resting under a tree, his gaze fixed upon the bracelet he had stolen. A few yard beyond the grove there was a jungle. The captain, fearing that the thief, who, soon looking up, beheld him. would make for this thicket, leveled at him his pistol while he was yet 30 yards from the man. "Stand, you rascal: If you move a step. I will blow your brains out!" shout ed Bardolph. With a derisive laugh, the native glided behind the tree. Just as he was swinging himself over one of the branches the captain, who had watched bis chance, fired. Another derisive laugh broke from the ative. "Never mind. You can't escape mef cried Bardolph. Throwing off his boots, he ascended the tree. The robber, seeing him coming, drew front his belt a long, sharp dagger. his eyes flashing fiercely. W hen the captain had reached a branch within a foot of him, the Hindoo, suddenly leaning forward, made a thrust at him with the knife. Bardolph, prepared for this, struck up the fellow s arm with one hand. Using the otter, in which was hU pistol, he dealt h.m a blow on the head with the butt end of the weapon. Momentarily Ktuunod. the roblier leaned back against the trunk of the tree. The captain threw himself npon him. but the thief, who had theu recovered, grappled with him. The native was strong and wiry. In striving to stab his adversary, however, the keen blade of his weapon struck ami was half buried in a branch. Half hidden by the vines and leaves among the upper branches of the adjoin ing tree, the broad head and great round. glaring eyes of a tigress, evidently the one which had previously passed the cap- ttain, m if.' lit now have been seen. Suddenly, pushed with tremendous force by the wiry arm of his antagonist. Bardolph sliped off the branch and felL He seized another branch a few feet be neath him as he went, thus saving him self from going farther. But he was now caught in a mass of climbing para sites, with many winding tendrils, from which he vainly endeavored to extricate himself. His feet, resting on a lower branch, were tightly held, as were also his arms. The native's face glowed with savage exultation. He had plucked his knife. and, with it held firmly in his right hand. he was descending toward the helpless young man. ' Soon he was right above his intended victim, when, tantalizingly moving his dagger to and fro. be remained motion less, glaring at the captain like a snake looking at a bird held fast in its colls. Bardolph gave himself op for lost. At length, np went the knife above the captain, the keen point on a line with the back of his neck, in which the native meant to bury the sharp blade to the hilt. It was about to descend. There seem ed no hope for the unfortunate yonng man. who. with an inward prayer for his wife, stood ,rendy to meet his fate. But at that moment a quick, loud growl was heard. There was a rustling noise in the adjoining tree, followed by a whizzing sound, as the striped body of the tigress descended slantingly through the air up on the form of the Hindoo, whose bleed ing throat had excited her voracity. With a crash, the fierce animal and his victim fell to the ground, the former up permost. . In a short time the native was literally torn to pieces, after which be was de voured by the hungry beast. The man's knife having dropped from bis hand and caught among the tendrils around the captain, the latter succeeded in getting bold of it and finally ia freeing himself. Waiting until the tigress, satiated with her horrible repast, bad left the spot. Bardolph descended to the ground, pick ed up his wife's bracelet, which had fall en from the thief's pocket, and hurried to the cutter, where he found all his boat's crew just preparing to go Id arch of him. , Mrs. Bardolph was glad to receive her bracelet, hut she clung, weeping, to her husband when he described the perils through which he had passed to obtain it. -New York News.
