Ethiopia, who was as wicked as she
was black. She was getting old and
she feared lest some calamity would

was touched and he drew from bis
pouch some herbs and rubbed tbenron
the child's eyes, and lo.'his sight re-.
Then the Siotix told him that his.
sight would remain as long as he' kept
secret that It had been restored and'
