Colonel Colinwood commanded the th Haidarabad native Infantry. 'The colonel was a large, florid man who well illustrated the English proclivity for not being able to learn from others. His father bad been a small tradesman ln London who ln some way had put a member of the cabinet under obligation to him and the obligation was repaid by a commission for the son. Nearly all the young man's brother officers were gentlemen born, and many of them younger sons of nobles. Colin wood was snubbed for twenty years, and as soon as he was promoted to the command of a regiment commenced a systematic snubbing of every officer beneath him In rank excepting those connected with the nobility. The colonel was especially bard on his servants. He seemed to consider any servant as a necessary evil and a native Indian servant sb a worm of tbo dust. Among those who attended him were an Irishman named Malony and a native named Haroutune. Malony treated all natives as his master treat ed his inferiors. Haroutune was very different from both the colonel and the Irishman. He was as gentle as a wom an. He was married to a soft eyed young Indian, and they bad three chil dren, on whom they both doted. They were very frugal, their one supreme object being to accumulate something for their little ones. One day Colonel Colinwood missed a valuable diamond that he had bought; expecting to make a display with it when he returned to England.. The on ly two persons who had access to the room where It was kept were Malony and Haroutune. The colonel, who bad perfect confidence ln Malony, had Ha reutnne arrested, and the courts ln the neighborhood were so afraid of the au tocratic soldier that he bad little trou ble ln having the Indian convicted. Haroutune was sent to prison to serve a term of fifteen years. Not long after the loss of the dia mond Malony left the colonel's service to return to the British Isles. Eight years later Colinwood, having been in valided home, found his former servant living "ln clover." Setting detectives on his track, the colonel unearthed the fact that he bad disposed of a valuable diamond, and his prosperity dated from the sale. Colinwood, finding it to his interest to accept the remainder of the thief's fund on condition that he would not prosecute, made the compro mise. A few years after this the colonel re turned to India with a wife and two little children. He debated the matter as to what be should do- ln making amends to Haroutune and decided that to Bay anything about the mistake would place him in an unpleasant posi tion. Haroutune now had but a few years to serve. Besides, be was noth ing but. a low caste native, and a pris on was as good a place for blm as any where else. So the colonel concluded to do nothing in the way of Justice. Meunwhlle Haroutune was languish ing ln prison. He was so gentle ln his manner that one of the prison officials took' him into his service. This gave the poor fellow a great deal of liberty. Not long before his term expired a snake charmer gave an exhibition at the prison, and Haroutune saw him perform. Among other things, the snake charmer would place a bird ln the same apartment with a snake. On Its master's order the snake would steal up to the bird and strangle It One day when Colonel Colinwood was at dinner with some friends he remarked that the time for the expira tion of the man who had stolen his diamond must have arrived. Some of the party said that the natives were prone to take revenge for punishment and it behooved the colonel to be on his guard. Colinwood declared that If be were Inclined to fear any Indian he certainly would not fear Haroutune, who was more woman than man. Had the colonel realized that the prisoner, who had served fifteen years for an offense of which be knew himself to be innocent; .that he bad come out of prison to find his wife and children, having been deprived of bis support, had succumbed and were all dead had the colonel known this be might have feared that even a werm will turn. Mrs. Colinwood. did not share her husband's want of faith ln Indian revenge and shuddered. The very next day Elsie Colinwood was found dead ln the garden. The children were permitted to play there, since the place was surrounded by a high wall. The little brother who made the discovery said that he bad seen a snake pass from a tree on- to the gar den wall. There was no mark on the body, though the throat gave evidence of strangulation. A month later the boy was found dead ln his bed with no more marks on him than had been found on his sister. The mother, on the verge of Insanity at her loss, besought ber husband to resign his position and return to Eng land. He promised to do so, but be fore be could make his arrangements his wife had met a fate similar to that of her children. The distracted man followed her to her grave and com pleted his preparations to leave a coun try that bad become a horror to him. The night before he was to sail he was awakened by a choking sensation and, grasping what was colled about bis neck, tore it sway and threw It to the other ' side of the room. The next rooming a servant went to awaken him and found his dead body terribly swollen. He had been bitten on the hand by one of the most deadly snakes In India. JTHAN T. HOWB. GENERAL NEWS.
