Somebody wi lies about "A Woman's Veil' in
tho lloslou 0.t(fr; -nud here nro half a dozen of
his verses :
II was full many a seaBon since,
When I was summering tit Capo May,
They had a foolish fashion then
Mayhap they have tho unmo lo-day--Thnl
ovory lady In the dance,
If pleased with any, should not fall
I'nto tho pattucr she preferred
To glvo her veil.
And there was one 1 mind mo of,
Whoso name-well, nover mind her name i
Uclcn or Allco, Wanchc, or Maude,
To yon who rend will bo tho same.
Hut that old fa'ihlou of tho veils
Haply lecalls tho past, and stirs
Memotlis that cluster round tho night
She gave mo hers,
She flushed, poor child, In giving It,
And I, lo, foil my brow grow warm,
As liuuhingtyi with lingers dolt,
Sho knot let it about my arm
And thounh tho color on her chccl;
Was IlkH thoHght In morning skies,
I thought I saw a ko'.liil' dawn
Within her eyes,
The daheo was over and we sliolled
Out from tbnliall-rooin'sglllterln'ipri s-,
To meet tlii brcczo that many armed
Clasped each ono lu cool carom ;
Aud faunterlng ou wo reached tho sea
Tlio far wall?, music's cadeneo sweet,
Mixed with the sound ol waves that died
About oui leet.
Wo talked ol what I now forget,
Hut carelessly, or seeming so,
Next day I was to leave, but then
In town wo'd meet again, you know,
Ah,woll-n-dayl tho gods dispose,
And ruluod hopes nro worso than vain i
Sho laughed good-by I never saw
Her faco airatu.
Life's sad pitrzle, audom hoaits
Grow faint In searching for tho clue ;
She went beforoattwcnty-flve.
And I live on at fifty-two
And wait llio cud ; for well I know
That I shall meet her without fall,'
On komo Spring mornlng-aud till then
1 keep tho veil.
AKAISIAN STOKIKS HOWXTHKXIIiE,
It is wonilcrful how much plcnsuro
Oriontuls manngo to fret out of n trum
pery tnlc. As you float tlown tho sa
cred river, for example, leaving Nubia
and tho cataracts, and tho reaches of
Syeno far behind, nnd pass Islets dozing
in tho lull of waters, green corn fields,
palmy slopes, shadowy dells, and
mounds with ruined temples which on
a sunny afternoon look like it lnndscapo
of Claude, you arc forovcr hearing tho
hum of llio story-teller to his p;roup on
tlio fore. As tho sun went down, tho
sailors would invariably snugglo to
gether in tho dusk, Abdallah having no
longer n scatt crcd or casual group of list
eners, and under tho dewy glimmer of
a lantern at tho mast, look nnd movo
liko spectres as thoy listen to somo ter
rible climax In tlio tratlltlounl story.
Liko opium, it seemed to sootho tho
nerves and tako off tho deadlier of in
dolence. Our dragomen onco translated
for us some of these talcs. Thoy were
not without point, and wcro thoroughly
characteristic of Eastern life. Fancy
tho story-teller, hemmed in by bare-
chested, open-mouthed, turbanod INton-
ers, as intoning and sco sawing, ho nar
rates n3 follows:
Onco upon a timo thcro lived on tho
edgo of tho deaort a Sheik named Ben
Achnia. Now this man was a philos
opher, who, gathering wisdom from
overy passing adversity, as a leech culls
simples, had como to possess quite a
loard of it. Ho was still in tho prldo
of manhood. His renown, however,
had waxr.d so great that oven old men
from iho neighboring tribes, dlhtant far
from us tho sunset oasis camo to sub
mit their quarrels to him and abldo by
hlii Judgment. Ouo day a caravan from
Meshid oueampod near his dwelling.
Two Arabs, watering their camols at
tho well, discoursed about tho wisdom
of tho Kadi or Meshid. "Ho can ropoat
tho Koran," said ono, "from thoFattha
to tho end without dropping a point."
Ho cuts through deceit as with a
knife," answered tho other.
Ben Achnia, smoking his afternoon
chlbouquo under the shadow of ti palm,
on hearing this nroso.
"Tell mu, O brother," said ho, "who
Is this man thou art so eager to praIo'."'
"What then, thou dolt V" replied the
camel driver. "Hast thou not heard of
Haleol, Kadi of Meshid ? Allah !-
Even tho Father of tho Faithful him
self la a green tree boforohlm."
"Dull!" rmitlcrcd the Sheik to him
self, a.s ho walked homo musing, "and
yot I am called Ben Achmu tho Wiso."
Next morning Bon Achnia saddled
his horso, and disguising himsolf a3 a
merchant, started for Meshid lo soo tho

In tho reign of Caliph llavouu al Has-
chid, of happy memory, lived in tho
city of Bagdad a celebrated barber of
tho namo of All Saknl. Ho was so fa
mous for a steady hand and doxterlty
that ho could shavo a head and trim a
beard blind-folded without drawing
blood. There was not n man of any
fushion in Bagdad who did not employ
him ; and such a run of business had
ho that ho bccAino proud nnd Insolent,
and would scarcoly over touch a head
whoso owner was not at least a Boy or
an Agha. Wood for fuol was always
se.ueo and dear at Bagdad, nud, a3 this
barber's shop consumed a great deal,
tho wood-cullers brought their loads to
him in proforonco, almost suro of meet
ing a ready salo. It happoncd ono day
that a poor wood cuttcr.nowin his busl
nos, and Ignorant of tho character of
Ali Saknl, wont lo tho shop and offered
him a load of wood ho had Just brought
into town ou his ass. All Immediately
offered a prlco, making uso of thC30
words, "for all tho wood that was upon
the ass." Tho wood cutter agreed,
unloaded his bcait, and asked for his

"How!" said tho other Ingreataniazo
mcut, "who over hoard of such a bar
gain ? It 13 Impossible"
In short, after much altercation, tho
over-bearing harbor solzod tho pack
saddlo, wood and all, and sent away
tho peasant In great distress. Ho im
mediately ran to tho Kail I, stating his
grlof j but, bolng ono ot tins harbor's
customers, tho Kodl rofuscd to hoar tho

Tho poor man then applied to tho Mufti
himself, w'ho.hnvlng pondored tho quos
lion, said It whs too difficult a caso for
him to decide, no provision bolng mado
for It In tho Koran. Tho wood-cuttor
was not dlshcartoncd, but forthwith got
a -cilbo to wrltoa petition to tho Callpl
which ho duly pre-xmled on Friday, the
d.iv when Ills Highness went to tho
mosque- In iitato. Hiiroun nl llaschld's
punctuality in reading petitions Is well
known, and it was not long boforo tho
wood-cutter was called into his presence
When ho approached tho Caliph ho
kneeled and kissed the ground nnd then
placed his arms straight beforo him, his
hand covered with tho slcovo of his
tunic, and his feet close together, await
ed the decision.
"Filcnd," said the Caliph, "tho bar
bcr has words on his sldo, you havo
equity on yours. Tho law must bo de
fined by words, and agreements must
bo mado by words; tho former must
have Us course or It is nothing; nnd
agreements bo kept, or thoro would bo
no faith botwoon man and man ; but i"
Then calling tho wood-cuttor close to
hlm,lho Caliph whispered something
In his car, aud sent him away quito sat
isfied. Hero tho story-teller mado n
pause In his narrative, and holding up
a tin cup, said : "Now, friends, ir you
will glvo me something I will toll you
what thoCaliphsald to tho wood-cuttor."
'Iho piastres camo in rather plentifully.
Well, thou, continued ho, tho Caliph
whispered lo tho wood-cutler what to
do In order to got satisfaction from tho
barber. And what that was 1 will now
relate. Tho wood-cultcr having mado
his obeisance, returned lo his ass, which
was tied without, took It by tho halter,
anil proceeded to his home. A fow days
after ho applied to tho barber, as if
nothing had happened botweon them,
requesting that ho and a companion of
his from tho country might bo shaved.
Tho prlco at which both operations wero
lo bo performed was settled. Whon tho
wood-cuttor'a crown had been properly
shorn, All Sakal asked him whero his
"Ho is just standing without hero,"
said tho other, "but ho shall como In,"
Accordingly ho went out, and re
turned, leading his ass after him by tho
"This is my companion," said ho,
"and you must shavo him."
"Shavo him 1" exclaimed tho barber,
in tho greatest surpriso : "It is enough
that I havo condescended to demean
myself by touching you and do you in
sult mo by asking mo to shavo your
boost ? Away with you, or I will thrash
you both." And forthwith ho drovo
thorn out of tho shop.
The wood-cuttor immediately wont
lo tho Caliph. '"Tiswcll," said tho
Commander of tho Faithful. '"Bring
All Sakal with his brushes and razors
instantly here," ho exclaimed to his
Vizier, and in tho coursoof ten minutes
tho barber stood boforo him.
"Why do you rofuso to shavo this
man's companion ?" asked tho Caliph,
"was not that your agreement?
All kls'Od llio ground and answered,

The barber was then obliged to pro-
paro a great quantity of soap, lather tho
beast and shave him from head to foot.
Tho poor wood-cutter was then dismiss

A rr.TENn of Dean Swift's ono day
sent him a turbot as a pro?out by a sor-
ant-lad, who had frequently been on
similar errands, but hadnovor received
anything from tho Dean for his troublo.
Having gained admission , ho opened
tho study door, and putting down tho
fish on tho floor, cried out, ruddy,
Master has sent you t turbot !"
"Young man," said the Doan, rising
from his easy chair, "is that tho way
you deliver a mossago V Let mo teach
you better manners. Sit down In tho
chair, wo will change places, aud I will
show you how to behave in future."
Tho boy sal down, and the Doan go
ing out, camo up to tho door, and mak
ing a low bow, said : "Sir, master pro
souls his kind compliments, hopes you
aro well, and requests your accoptauco
of a small present."
"Does ho?" roplicd the boy. "Roturn
him my host thanks, and there's half a
crown for yoursolf.''
Tho Dean thus caught In his own trap,
laughod heartily, und gavo tho boy a
crown for ready wit.
