AN IPOSTOR'S TRICK.
The Cheerful Liar That Made a Fool
of the Grand Monarch.
Louis XIV was taken in once in a
most humiliating way and by an im
postor whose only art was lying. In
667, just after he had returned from
ne of his most dazzling military suc
cesses against the duke, Louis le
arand received word that an embassy
Irom Persia had just landed at Mai%
eilles en route to the French court to
bring salutations and presents from
Lhe shah. . Pleased that his fame
hould actually have run around the
orld, he sent word that all the
towns on the way from Marseilles to
Paris should fete the ambassador.
As a result the journey to Paris
as a march of triumph. Children
ang and flowers were strewn along
the way. Arrived at Paris, several
regiments of the Swiss guard met the
shah's representative and escorted
him to a magnificent suit in the old
palace of the Tuileries. Louis sent
'no lessi a person than the Duc de
Richelieu to welcome the potentate
and invite' him out to Versailles to a
special reception in the hall of mir
The ambassador presented himself
as Riza Bey of the Persian court and

ranced to laiss the hand of Louis le
rand and give him the shah's con
ratulations on his reecnt victories.
A. carava.n of presents from his im
perial severeign were on their way
and would arrive in Paris in a few
cays, said the ambassador.
Festivals followed at Versailles.

vans at the French court and smoked
in Persian languor. He gave the
grand monarque a few fragments of

there were full of them, he explained,

said. "gone glimimering through the
dream of things that were." The

anything, about 15 cents apiece, being

Walter J. Knigh%, who has a fund
of good darky stories, surrendered
:his one yesterday:
"Jason, black as the ace of .spades,
was tried for murder in Mississippi,
and found guilty. He was led before
:he judge on a sultry day late in July
"Jason," said the court, "you have
een found guilty of murder by a jury
>f your peers. Have you anything to
say before sentence fs imposed upon
"Jason ha'd nothing to say. There
a as a pause, and the judge proceeded.
"It therefore becomes my painful
nty to sentence you to be hanged by
the neck until you are dead on the
L3th day of August."
"There was another pause, and Ja
son, shifting from one foot to they
ther, looked up.
"'Sho'ly you don't mean this comin'
