Three sipahees walking through the park, suddenly observed the animal, as I have said, at large, roaming the ground. – “Arree bhyee!” (Oh brother!) exclaimed one of the elder and more prudent. – “See! here's the Lord Sahib's animal coming. Run!” “Run!” (exclaimed the poor young fellow, who paid so sadly for his temerity, and regarding only the imaginary discredit of running away). “Never! If he strikes me, I'll strike him!” – he stood still; and in a few minutes his mangled corpse, as you may suppose, was being dragged about the park by the furious rhinocerous.|
