IT IS RUMORED
That the country is not safe with

kea has resigned the ollicc of Cham

The true origin of the gla9s slip
per. How Psamineticlms, the, King,
come to place the Greek" slave,
Rhodnpis, on the throne of the
We tan readily believe that run
ning brooks can preach us sermons;
but we could seaicely hope to find
a fairy story, based upon a solid
historical fact, especially one told
by the inscription upon the Sarco
phagi of Egypt. Yet such is the
fact, for tho records-of tho Psam
teek Kings tell us, that the story of
Cinderella or the Glass Slipper, that
so delights tho childish imagination,
is in truth founded upon u romantic
love affair, between Pnaminotichus,
the successor of Amasls, King of
Egypt, and a lovely Greek slave.
Riioilnpis had been a slave, and a
fellow bondswoman with isoj, the
fable writer, in the house of one
ladmou of Satnos. She by her won
derful beauty had attracted the at
tention of Aphrodite, a wealthy and
powerful Patrician, who procured
her freedom, and heaped upon her
immense riches. On the death of
her patroness, RhodopW fixed her
rcsidenco at Naucrates, a port on
the Canotio branch of tho Nile, and
there dispensed hospitality with tho
lavish hand of an Empress.
Ono morning, just after the sun
had crept across the De'ti, she went
Foith with her maidens -to hutho.
At a short distance from thu river,
she sought a secluded creek, away
from (he busy main, and scrcaiied
by. the waving, feathery papyrus.
As the creek was some yards from
the place where her litter stopped,
HiioU"pl ti'ti no; nuc off in r ii

as lovi-Iy as t'u- Intone:) Una lju
snmed and hlooim d about her.
Tin ow itm off her sandals, she enter
ed the watei, and liej.Mii swimming,
divinir and lioliekiug with the easy
light heal ted joy of tho butie:flies
that Muttered about the flowers. She
would gather haiidsful of lotuses,
and then throw iln-in away, until
at last, llnd of her siioit, she in a
lit of laziness, Moated on the cool
bosom of the water, and yielded hei
self to thought.
Her sandals lay upon tho beach,
a dainty pair, all uhibroideied with
gold and biilliant colors, and on
the upper surfuuo of the side, on
which her foot rested, boio tho
figure of a captive with bound arms
on the one being a Greek, and the
other an Egyptian, showing the
dominion her beauty hul attained
over the two nations. Now, in the
air just over the sandals, there
chanced to hover an eagle, who be
ing attracted by the glitter of the
gold, on tho sandals, swooped down
and seizing one, and rising again,
soon became a mere speck in the
Now this bit of theft on tho part
of the eagle, became the turning
point in the brilliant career of Rho
dopis. The bird immediately direct
ed his flight over the Delta, and
away up the Nile to Memphis, the
capitol of. Egypt, and the scat of
Psamineticlms the King, and there
ho dropped the sandal at the foot of
the judgment throne of the King.
The monarch was sitting in the
open air, dispensing justice to his
subjects, and being exhausted with
the heat and dullness of the pro
ceedings, set him about to draw
pictures in his imagination. In
thought he erected for himself a
magnificent palace, over which he
placed in qtieenship an ideal beauty.
He was just painting her as having
the eyes of the gazelle, the voice of
the nightingale, the litheness of the
panther, and the tread of a goddess,
when lo, the sandal fell plump at kjs
feet. Astonishment robbed him of
all dignity, for he jumped up and
shouted, "An omen! an omen! lie
immediately dismissed the coiut.
When in the seclusion- of his own
apartment, he after scanning the
dainty little sandal for some time,
concluded it wa-, an act of the gods,
who drilling to make lite heart's
wish come t. m. had taken this way
of bhowiug their inteiiiiiiii. lie ac

claimed 111 .t 'whu-oever the sandal

who could explain Hie symbols on

and be his queen." With a mighty
retinue, and in right royal pomp and
splendor the messenger set upon
For many months he searched in
vain, then; was not a woman or
maiden in the whole of the kingdom,
but endeavored to thrust her foot
into the sandal but without avail.
The King's Palace had been com
pleted, nnd his lieait had grown
weary ol tho delay, and he des
paired of ever finding its lovely
At last the royal messenger
reached Nancratis, find the news of
the proclamation reached the ears
of RhodopU, as she sat in the midst
of her guests, at one of those Luculj
lian banquets, she so delighted in
giving. Instantly she oidered the
messenger to be brought to her pre
sence, for having now remembered
the shape of her sandal, she had no
doubt, but that tho fellow of it, was
the one sought for. When the
messenger bowing lowly at the foot
store of her, chair, presented the
sandal, she not only thrust her
daint3' little fool into it, but laugh
ingly dried. "Here is the fellow,
and for this do I wear the symbols
on the soles. As Greece is captive
to my beauty, so shall Egypt bo,
and Egypt's King!" There was
great rejoicing thereat in her house
hold, and the dancing men and sing
ing girls, made merry the hours un
til the sun was high.
The next morning Rhodopis with
great pomp and ceremony repaired
with the messenger to Memphis,
where Psammeticlius almost heart
sick willi waiting, fell a captive to
her beauty, and in accordance with
his promise, took her to wife, and
thus was the Greek slave, given a
.scat on tho throne of the Pharoahs,
and made Queen of all Egypt.
