First Sentence: Colonel Valentine, a worthy but somewhat irascible army officer, just retired and looking forward to a well-earned life of ease in England on liberal half-pay, was glancing over the recently-arrived periodicals in a shady seat at the edge of the great military esplanade at Madras, on a certain blistering hot morning, when he looked up over his spectacles at three figures that were approaching him across the parade ground. (Good News edition)
Last Sentence: It was fortunate for the clever surgeon that, in the struggle for the bamboo wand, the horrible reptile did not bite him instead of the murderous Hindoo. (Good News edition)
