AN EASTERN TALE. A kinp; once summoned his three sons, And thus addressed the anxious ones: " Go forth, my sons, through all the earth And search for articles of worth; Then he who brings the choicest thing, Shall in my stead be crowned as king," In one year's time again they meet, 'Twas hard to choose between the two. And kneel before the sovereign's feet : The monarch knew not what to do. And as with gracious outstretched hand, The third is standing calmly there ; He welcomed home the youthful band, Now, with a half triumphant air He natural eagerness expressed, And smile of confidence and hope, To see the objects of their quest. He shows a cake of Ivory Soap, The first such lustrous pearls displays. So peerless in its purity, That every tongue is loud in praise. That dirt, alarmed, takes wings to fly. ik white, the snow-flakes on their way The old king, as it meets his sight, Compared to them arc dull and gray. Grasps it, and cries in wild delight: fli2 next a diamond more pure, " No more confusion or dismay, And larger than the Koh-i-noor, No more cold mcah on washing day. That shone with such a brilliant light, Subjects ! my youngest son obey, The sunbeams, shamed, withdrew from The Ivory Soap has won the day." sislit. A WORD OF WARNING. There are many .white soaps, each represented to be "juitas good at the'lvory'i" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine.

Roving ono day over tho weBtorn jirnlrio I eamo on a deserted "dtiKout.'' Near It lay a rusty old tea kettle, a liorao'R skoll and a baby's shoe. Their Rtoryt This: Karly morning, a May morning in Kansas. Over all tho land a silvery mist, a palpablo dewinexs, a delicious freshness, tho peculiarly rich and sub tle scent of freshly turned earth, much of it being soil "hroko" for the first tlmo. A proud and prosperous young meadow lark poised upon a fencing post, a spruce young meadow lark in gray coat, yellow vest and blaok cra vat pours nut a series of tremulous triplo notei, a roundelay to tho little mother cuddling her eggs in tho springing prairie grosses. Tho mist begins to rise. Upward, still higher, one marvelous scroll it curls, revealing tho pallid primrose of tho eastern sky. And now tho vapory veil is quite withdrawn, and all the soft rose tirea heralding tho king kindlo into bril liance behind the bluffs. Lighter and brighter it grows. Fraught with pro misu is all that gleam and glow. Ilo liohl. the promise is fulfilled! Up rises a golden lino which swells into a curve, a semicircle, a huge, dazzling, blinding ball of flame. Up and upl A thrush from its nest in a cottonwood lifts its voieo in jubilant m.ititiP, which aro chimed in upon by tho brisk bravnras of a rival robin. Men and horses appear in tho fields; plows aro hauled out; tho work of the day begins. In tho phrase of tho Kansas farmer, "It is sun-up." Having lumbircd through too tiny town which lies upon the statu lino separating Kansas from Nebraska, crossed the railway track and a brand new bridge, up a etcep bluff worn into deep ruts by the daily passage of wa gon laden with stone to be shipped farther west, comes slowly and heavily that most familiar of western sights, a prairie schooner. Ponderously plod tho horses up tho ascent; clumsily lurches along the level attained the great white canvased wagon. Unlike tho ordinary emigrant outfit in some respects, this. To bo sure, evideucea of habitation bulge from the interior, and chairs, stove, broom, with virions household utensils, are tied on behind. But there aro no cows, no dogf, no "crubby ponies bestridden by bare-log-ued boys. Of the thousand of wa gons which trundlo yearly over tho western prairies this presents a parti cularly lonely appearance. Whoevor aw one without children? Children of all ages, tow headed, brown Bkiu ned, healthy, hearty children, includ ing the'incvitablo baby staring solemn ly from tho clasping mothers arms. Perhaps you may have seen some day, Hoses crowding the l elfsatno way, Out of a wilding wayside busb. Tho driver whoso broad back ob scures the light of tho front arch, turns in his seat, and glancei into tho oomprjrattve gloom of ihe interior. "How is she, Cortyt" "Asleep." The woman within a young wo man with a pretty, pain, sad face di rects his attention by a glance to the baby in her lap. He uods draws up the horsoB by tho side of the road. "Dou't you stir," he says. Ho do scends, unhitches the horses, finds twigs, builds a lire, goes to tho uoar tst farm house for water, and comes back with u full kettle, which ho sus pends over tho blaze by a couple of crooked sticks. Soon iho smell of siz zling bacon and boiling coffee become appetizingly apparent. Then ho goes 'o the watron. His wife lays the child "ently down: alights. He notices thai she is white. "Air you sick'' he asks, quickly. "No, no," she murmurs. But quite suddenly she sways and falls forward into his arms. The journey, the rough, strange life, the variable weather, tho exposure, all have been too much, he decides, for one dolioite ly reared as she. When sbo revives ho insists they shall proceod no farther for a few days, perhaps not lor a few weekB. About fifty yards from tho road is a little desorted "dugout." Some distaroo from it a new framo house testifies to the prosperity of tbo former occupants. From them tho "campers" obtain permission to take temporary possession of tho queer littlo cabin. The whole interior eousists of nno room, aud that room 10 feet by 12. To enter it is mcessary to descsnd scleral rough steps. Tho walls and floor are of earth just ai when due:, quite unconcealed by board or plaster. Tho sloping roof is of logs, irregular in shano and lencth: these covrrod with tcd from tho prairie. Here, ihiough the chmgeablo weather of May and into warm, beautiful June, live tho throe, the woman protesting all the time she is Btrong enough to go on, but growing gradually frailer, weaker. A complete contrast she and tier husband. He is a tall, brawny, handsome young fellow, animated by intense admiration of his wife and gentlest dovotion to her, but unmis takably her inferior socially and intel lectually, one, delicate, dreamy oyed, wrapped up in her baby and her roe mnrics to his almost utttr exclusion. Ono day the child wckuns, grow) vio lently ill, dies. Her grief is silent, but intense. Sbo will neither eat nor sleep; just sits still as stone in tho littlo "dugout," and looks and stares at tho wee waxen thing which lies therein. So, when her husbaud tides into town to buy tho littlo coffin, he calls in to see the doctor and ask him to coma out and visit his wife. At sunset he digs tho grave such a small gravel All around is isolation, prairie, skv. The woman, crouching on tho ground near thu dwelling, is the only other mourner, i no task done, bo coca down into t' o 'ducout," and comes up again with the little nailed dowu box in bis arms,, , (Tenderly' ho lowers lj roltly ho.Jtts fnll upon it eaoh elipvel till otieartli, lie is mind with tear. l ho fresh .brawn, mound smoothed over, no gocB up to iits wile, blio doos not seem to seo him. Shots look ing straight ahead. Uorr)l "Dou'tl" sbo says savacelv. ''I've lost him and now it! 1 wish I was dcadl" Hurt, irresolute, ho feland still a moment. Then ho goes within and aits down by the bod where tho baby has lain. She is grieving still, then. for the man who failed to oomo to Iter the day set for their wcddiugl Jilted, dosorted, yetl That was why in phjuo and prido sho married him, tho ignor aut gardoncr of her wealthy uncle, and had gono away with him to Iowa. Thoy had not prospered. . Sho. held no communication with thoso at home. This year, after thtlr baby came, thoy decided to seek forluna farther west. And now now tho baby was gono and hor now loss had brought back tho old ono. Hark! A voice speaks without. "Is any ono ill hcrct There was a request on my slaio-' A cryl Such a quctr, wild cry it is that cuts across the slrangor's words. The man in tho "dugout'' leaps to his feet, aB does tho' woman without. Through the dopmay, against-, the patch of sunset sky he can bco her standing with arms ouiilang. "Willie!" she cries ogainf 'Wilie!" Tho dootor from town.spcaks hoarse ly ono word only her 'name. Thero is absolute silenco for a littlo while. Theu ho bursts out fiercely, passiouate- "Why couldn't you have waited I d'd you no wrong! When I lift you tho week, before wo wcro to havo been married, and went up to tho oily, I got into trouble J was no saint. 1 never pretended I was. This was a drunken quarrel. 1 shot a man. I was un known, aud gave a false name. I was held to await the result of his injuries held two months. 1 couldn't writo you tho truth of tho affair. My part in it was too disgraceful. I wouldn't lie. So I was silent till I could toll you all and ask you to forgive me. The man recovered. I was discharged. I went straight to Vancelon. 1 heard you had married Boma. clod hopping idiot and gone away with him." "Ho is good!" sho says slowly. Tho other laughs harshly. "And you lovu mm, ol ooursti ' Go!" she cries in weak, womanish fury. "Go!" "Do you love him, Coral" Sho is ill, trembling. His brutal in sisla'c forces a leply. Sbo slips dnw. i by tho "dugout" and cowers ttiuro with her faco hidden. "Oh, Willie! Oh, Willie!' Tho tono says all. It is full of love, Lut lovo that is only pathos, pas'ion, despair. He turne, walks slowly away across the prairie, llo is mechanically unhitch ing his hofto when a heavy tread comes toward bim. In tho clear sil verness preceding twilight two men faco each othei. One speaks calmly: "I hoard what you said. Answer me thi-: If sho wero free to-morrow would you marry her?" Quick as a llash comes tho reply: "By heavens, yep!" Then Dr. Herbert, gentleman and student, dr.vcs back to town, and John Hilton goes to the "dugout" to his wife. She is still in the samo placo, tho samo position. Ho gets her hat and shawl and carefully puts them on her.' Then he leaves her awhile nod harnesses up the horse. "Cora, Corryj I'm agoin' to drive you into town. There's goin' to bo a storm. I seen the clouds to the north to-night. An' this placo leaks dread ful. You must stay at tho hotel a while, ef wo havo to Bell tho team." Without a .word, stupidly it soettu, sho ooeys him Through the delicious Juno twilight thoy drivo tho five miles into town. Once he speaks. "Keep this!" ho says, and gives htr tho can vas bag containing all their worldly wealth. At the hotel he pioonres hor a comfortable bed, a 6oothincr drink. She falls asleep. Once, twice, thrice, ho kisses her. Then ho goes out, olimbs up on his huge wagon, headn the horses southward. Tho storm ho prophesied is blowing up. Lances of lightning stab the darkness.

MAKADKRS Of FAKES ANI KltKAKS AOItKK WITH HAliNUM. "Tho American people like to bo humbugged," As with P. T. Barnum so with tho managers of the "fakes, freaks and follies" class of dime mus eums, s'nlo shows and traveling stores, this truism is indelibly stamped in let ters of gold on tho cornor stono of their existence. Wcro it not for this phase of publio character, their pro fession would bo vain. But, in addi tion to this faith in tho weakness of Americans, certain other, requisites nro demanded in tho inako up of theso men. Ho needs bo something of an actor in order to look ono steadily in the faco as he nsserts what he knows is utterly false; ho must be shrewd, quick and cunning in arguments and espe cially in striking a bargain; ho must havo a certain volubility and fluenoy of language with the ability to nso big words to impreBS and bad grammar to put himself in sympathy with tho people ho expects to victimize; ho must havo a "plug" hat, a showy suit of cloths, half a dozen paste diamonds set in ring, Hbirt stud and collar but ton, and soiled shirt front tho no- senco or presence of tho rest of tho garment is immaterial, but fashion has decreed in favor of tho bosom. Tho species is distinct aud the specimens havo littlo in common with the rest of humanity. Tho majority of them woro born in tho role, with now and then ono who hss ascended trom a helper or descended from tho "legiti mate." When not "on tho road" they frequent certain haunts in tbo largo cities, usually some fifth or sixth class hotel, eagerly watching for tho latest humbug and devising means of securing a plant. Even in the smaller cities nud towns there are certain b arding houses where thoy put up known to tho profession as well as good begging places to tramps. Thoy are sure to bo "dead broke" about three fourths of tho time. SOME OF THE ATT It ACTIONS. The "legitimate" as well as tho "il legitimate ' business is found among dime museums and low price shows, and there aro those who do what they advertise, and work on general busi ness principles, although they may not appeal to the higher tastes and do not contribute to the culture which Mat i how Arnold looked for in vain among Americans. It is, however, the poorer class which affect Springfield most the sort which occupies vacant stores on Main street, or tents on vacant lots when tho country fairs are not iu pro gress. A rather confidential dirao mus eum man in tho city not long ago was easily led to ts-lk about his brolht r hood, and tho facts here set forth aro mainly as he described them. He had in his "exposition" a snake charmer, a, i Abyssinian beauty, a bodiless wo man aud a two headed calf (stuffed). The museum was in a tent about thirty l0''t in diameter, and tho curios wero ( arranged around tho sides. Two or . three glaring sheets of canvas wore h retched about tho entrance to depict what tho show contained. To bo sure, I tho snakes on tho illustration wcro thirty feet long, whilo the realities were about thirty incho, and tho calf , was represent' d as specially lively, but, l - - .L1 l!l ' me voysstmun aim me uouuess woman were fairly portrayed except for an amount of physical beauty which tho originals could never hayo possessed. Tho account of theso attractions which tho proprietor gavo was de lightfully naive. The snake cbaimer, ho asserted, was the daughter of a real Indian charmer, who was brought over by Barnum. She became enamored with a concert tioke-seller, and, as ho had ambition to stait a museum, mir ried her, and their only child was then doing tho "snake act" on tho post of fice lot iu Springfield. Tho fakir said the mother really had power over snakes, but the daughter used tooth less snakes and chloroform. "Sho is, however," he said, "very1 fond of snakes, and would sleep with them if I would let hor." Tho "Abyssinian beauty," Princess Irymi, was described as 23 years old, a uat'tvo of New York, and descended from poor but honost Irish parents. At the age of 17 she was employed to scrub floors in a New York Bowery dimo museum, and thero lutrned the secret of bleaching her hair and being able to mako it stand upright. Sho was paid $! a week for her services. Tho bodiless woman was tho fakir's wife, who bad fonuetly been a charac ter dancer in a variety show. Tho man said that thero had been a time when tho "bodiless womm act" had bojn a whole show, nud then ho had been able to coin money. Tho calf, or the remains of what had oucu been a oalf, ho asserted, was n legitimate curiosity which ho had bid iu at an auction sale of curios for $3.50. He said that his whole outfit cost S'8 and his salary list was from S17 to S25 a week, with his other expenses about StO a week, and his receipts wero from $15 to 35 a day. WIIV THKV PON T "LAY Ul'."

Very few of the so called freaks aro what thoy seem, and aro "doctored" in a more or less ingenious way. Men are all thu time doing something simply to get a job to pose for a wonder, as thoy me too lazy to work. One of the most seductivo fakes is tho traveling store, and it is safo to say that idtio times out of ton they nro Bwindlrs, ono way or another, aud still they are nlways largely patronized. They rent the stores for a short time, and so havo to pay an exorbitant rent. They oftentimes havo to freight tho goods two or threo times over, and aro utterly irresponsible.

A pleasing and constant topio of English wi iters is tho American girl. One of tho latter commentitors says of her, "American gitls havo shown that thoy oan receive, travel, aud live without chaperon, escorts, or hus bands, and nro fast developing a bright, clear, intelligent, selftreliant, courage ous, and refreshing variety of tho hit .nan race." And again, "Even if lu future years the slender Yankco belle is hidden behind the ampler beuty of English matron, wo may still, bear from her lipa the wit and shrewdness, tho acute accent, tho Intelligent ques tion, and tit 3 rapid rcpartro that pro claim her original nationality." The "society" pictures in tho papers and magazines represent the dismay of tho British matron with marriageable daughters as she survoys the avatar ot tho American divinity and rival Tho essential differences of society in tho two countries ore at once suggested, and thu alarm of tho watchful parent is justified. .. . Tho passage that wo havo quoted apparently describe by contrast, which is a fact which docs not seem to havo occurred to tho writer. Don .tless at heart ho is loyal to the English girl, and docs not admit even in debate that her supremany of maidenhood can be disputed. When he eays that American girls have shown that thev can receive, travel, and live without chaperons, escorts, or husbands, ho soeins to mean that they have shown this distinctively as compared with other girls. When ho adds that they aro fast dovcloping a bright, clear, intelligent, self-reliant, courageous, and refreshing variety of the human race, can ho mean that it is a new variety of girl, and that it is not por- lectiy tamit.ar In England! So in the ohter pissage, when, supposing the American g rl transformed into tbc British matron, he remarks, with evi dent admiration, "we may still hear from her hps tho wit and shrewdness, tho acute accent, tho intelligent plica tion, and tho rapid repartee that pro claim her original nationality," would bo have us understand that those are not the characteristics of the British matron of lo-dav? Or dot s he intimate only that tho coming of tho Americans wttl nut enlarge the number of theso delightful ladies? Tho writer certainly seems to do- scribo by contrast, but he has wisely l-tt a littlo cloud in which to envelop his retreat in case of emergency. Certainly we need not press him. Whatever lie may think or sav of tho English girl, ho has spoken well and truly of her American sister. His de scription applies to the girl who grows up amid the average conditions of A - crican life, the girl srho is portray ed in h r more jejuno condition in Henry James's Daisy Miller. Tho two chief qualities of that 0iing woman, as represented by tho Bhrewd and sub tle artist, aro self-respect' and self reliance. Tho perplexity of tho phenomenon to tho foreign reader lies in the fact that sho does what tho European girl without self-respect does. Geouoei Wim.iasi Curtis, in Harp er's Magazine for March.
