icles of apparel, his slippers attracted'
t most attention. Their soles were
stened with great nails, and the upper
at.hr was composed of so may patches
d pieces. that during the ton years
ey had beet, in wear, the different
blers in BaLdad had exhausted all
air skill to hlid them together. By
i is means they had become so heavy
it when a person would describe any

As this merchant walked once in the
teat market, of the city, there was
~posed to iim a great bargain of
stal e0s. He purchased th m at

irued that a perfumer,'having a quan.
of rose water, had met with a
tune, and mt:st sell it. He took ad
