TUESDAY, SEPTEMBERS, 1882
Trade in the Tropics.
Arthur Sullivan bought a carpet in
Alexandria, and the purchase took
him three months. One morning, so
runs Dr. Sullivan's narrative, he was
passing by one of the bazars where
tapestries and such things are sold,
when a particularly handsome and rich
fabric caught his eye. He went in,
. and, after pretending to look over a
lot of tilings which in reality he did
not want, he said to the man who
solemnly presided over the place,
" And whal is the price of that car-
"That," replied the dealer, "is
not for sale. 1 purchased that par
ticular carpet at a great cost, to feast
my own eye upon. It is magnificent
superb. I could not part with
that. No, by Allah!" or words to
" Will the Englishman have a cup
coffee?" The English gcntlcmun
would. He would also have a cigar
ette. After that he went away. In
a day or two he came around, again
and once more made the pretense of
looking through Macdallah's stock.
He had obviously failed to fool the
sly Egyptian before as to the articlo
be really wanted, so he took more
time to it upon this occasion. Ab
be expected, the sedate owner of the
bazar finally approached him.
'I have concluded, after several
Blcepless nights," said the merchant.
41 to wart with that carpet. It grieves
roe very much to do so, for I have
become verv fond of it. I had
hoped that it would be the light of
my eyes in my om age. mit me
Prophet has counseled unselfishness
among his people, and I will sell to
the English gentleman."
' One hundred pounds."
" Nonsense. I'll give you 5."
The Egyptian's dignity was ob
viously wounded. An expression of
absolute pain crossed his face. But
be forgave Dr. Sullivan, aud they
had another cup of coffee aud a
cigarette together. Then Dr. Sulli
Tan went away as before. In a
week or so he dropped around again.
After going through the regular busi
ness of looking over the stock, he was
again approached by Macdallah.
" I have concluded, after much
thought," said that worthy, " that
I asked you too much for tho carpet
the other day. When Macdallah
feels that he is in tho wrong, ho is
quick to acknowledge it. Tho
English gcntloman can have the
beautiful carpet for 90."
" Now you acknowledge your er
ror," replied Mr. Sullivan. " I will
confess that I was wrong in offering
you only 5 for your carpet tho
other day. I did that in joke, of
course. I didn't mean it. Bless
you, no. And sinco you are pre
pared to make concessions, I'll do
the same. Instead of 5, I will
give you G."
More coffco and another cigarette.
The next timo Dr. Sullivan went
Around, tho mcrcbaut took off 5
jnoro, and the purchaser added 1.
So it wont on, with haggling and
coffee, until Dr. Sullivan had finally
agreed to givo 12, at which price
he took away tho carpet. It would
havo cost about 330 in London. Ho
says that kind of business mentioned
is considered the strictly proper
thing in Egypt and Turkey. But
Americans, he adds, and spoiling
the trade in this direction. While
be was in Alexandria a i;entleman
named Morgan, from New York,
came along and visited the bazar of
MacuaMah. Three carpets struck
his fancy and he j.need them.
" JLhree hundred pounds," said
Macdallah. "Well," replied Mr.
Morgan, "that seems a fair price
and! will tako them. Here's your
tnonev." Tho noxt time Dr. Sul
livan saw tho merchant he was al
most tcariiur his bale with race a-
gainst tho" dog of a Christian,"
He explained the matter in an in
jured tone to the sympathizing
Englishman, adding that Mr. Mor
gan's method was not " business."
