AN EASTERN ROMANCE.
BY J. M. FRANCIS, CONSUL AT ATHENS.
A few years since there lived
in Bebek, a village on the Bos
phorus some six miles above
Coustantinople,uu elderly Greek
gentleman named Tchelby Yor
gaky. A warm-hcarled, genial
old gentleman was Mr. Yorgaky.
He was the posessor of some
property in real estate, and a
sufficient income was derived
from this source to supply the
moderate wants of himself and
his amiable wife, leaving a bal
ance, more or less, which was
distributed for charitable ob
jects. They had no children.
The venerable couple were very
happy in each other's society;
they had few intimate associ
ates outside. But anions these
was a friend of ours, an emi
nent American citizen,, who for
some time resided near, their
dwelling in Bebek. One day
our friend was invited to spend
social evening with Mr.
Yorgaky, tho latter saying that
if it were agreeable, he would
on this occasion, relate some
facts of his family history which
might possibly prove interesting
as constituting a strange chap
ter of real life in the East: Our
friend promptly accepted the
invitation, as any live Yankee
would have done under this
stimulus to curiosity. The old
gentleman's statement and
our friend vouchsafed for Yor
gaky's character lor truthful
ness after an intimate acquaint
ance with him for many years
was substantially as follows :
My father's, name was Yo
hannis Giros. His father car
ried on tho bakery business.
At quite an early age Yohannis
was employed as bread seller at
his father's stall near the Egyp
tian bazaar at Stamboul. There
he made the acquintance of a
Turkish boy about his own age,
named Ibrahim, who was en
gaged as salesman in his fath
er's tobacco shop close by. A
remarkable friendship grew up
between these two boys. They
mduged in sports together.
They talked over plans in bu
siness by which iu future years
they might not be separated a
single day. They would achieve
fortune, and share their wealth
together. These were the day
dreams of Yohannis and Ibra
him. Time wore on. The boys
had attained the age of seven
teen or eighteen years. Ibra
him's father secured for his son
a situation as tchiboukgi (pipe
bcaror) to the Pasha of Bagdad.
This was a creafc honor for a
boy iu humble circumstances.
But Ibrahim did not dosire the
place, for it would take him far
away from Yohannis.; Parent
al decision,however,was omnipo
tent in tho case, and.,; go! ho
must. , But before separating!
the boys had a long conference
together. "I must go,"" said
Ibrahim, " but I shall return to
Constantinople as a pasha, and
then you will share my honors
and fortune." The separation
of Yohannis and Ibrahim was
painful. When the final adieu
was spoken, each pledged the
other that his friendship should
reman constant so long as life
endured. Yohannis sorrowful
ly returned to his business at
the bread-stall; Ibraham ac
companied his master on the
long journey to England.
Years passed by; Yohannis
succeeded to the humble busin
ess of his father on the decease
kof the latter j ho married,- and
was blessed, as the poor are so
often blessed, with many chil
dren. By steady industry and
strict economy he was barely
enabled to support his large
family comfortably. His mind
frequently dwelt upon the
scenes and loves of youthful
days, and the Turkish boy Ibra
him was always a central figure
in these memories. A dozen
years prior to this time he heard
that his dear friend of boy
hood's days had died, but the
memory of that friend was rev
erently cherished by him ; one
so dearly loved in the fervor of
youth could not be iorgotten by
the generous-hearted Yohannis
even among the cares and strug
gles of a life of toil.
, One afternoon, while partak
ing of his frugal meal, and sur
rounded by his loving family,
Yohannis was startled by the
appearance of a very unwelcome
visitor the chief police officer
of the Sublime Porte. The
official announced that ho must
accompany him immediately to
the Porte. Iu those barbaric
days such a summons meant
condemnation and death, often
without any assignable or known
cause. Yohannis and his fam
ily were terrified; they pleaded
for delay. But the officer was
inexorable. Yohannis was
dragged away amid the piteous
cries and pleadings of his wife
and children. Arrived at the
Porte the officer conducted his
prisoner through a long hall
with guards stationed on either
side, to the door of an apart
ment, where at a given signal
the door opened and Yohannis
was at ouco brought face to
face with the grand vizier.
" This is our sublime master,
the grand vizier," said the offi
cer. Yohnnnis immediately
prostrated himself before that
august personage, and com
menced pleading earnestly for
his life. a Spare me, sublime
master, spare me," he ejacula
ted ; " spare me for the sake of
my innocent wife and children,
if not on account of my inno
cence of all wrong-doing. Why
should I be brought here to be
made the victim of the bow'
string or the ax? I have been
good and peaceable subject
of his majesty ; I have earned
bread for myself and family by
honest labor; I have wronged
no man. Let me go, and you
wjill have their blessing and my
prayers for your mercy. If
am killed they will die, for
they cannot earn bread to sup
" You cannot go back to your
business," said the grand vizier,
"Then sir," responded Yo
hannis in a more resolute tone,
tho blood of an innocent man
and his family you are about to
murder be on your garments ;
the avenging power of Almigh
ty justice pursuo you, sir, to tho
end. Your crime shall not eo
unpunished," , , , ,,, ,,..' ,
' Yohannis," ' " replied the
grand vizier, "arise and answer
my questions." ..'.,
" Yes, sire, sublime master."
! When a boy you seTved as
a bread seller for your father
close' by the Egyptian bazaar."
. " Yes sire, and 1 now keep
that same stall.
" You had a lrieud named
Ibrahim, who attended his fath
er's , tobacco shop very near
" Oh, yes, . sire ; Oh, yes,"
answered Yohannis, nearly
overcome with emotion.
"And you and Ibrahim, on
parting, pledged each other to
fricnqLsbip through life ; Ibra
him saying that ho would re
tarn' some day with the honors
and wcVlth of a pasha, and he
ytVi&J share, with you the bene
fits of his position."-
" Most truly you have spoken,
sublime master, but this was
long ago, and poor Ibrahim I
shall soon meet him in a better
world than this has been dead
these many, many years."
" Ibrahim is not dead," said
the grand vizier ; "he lives and
is in good health , he remembers
Yohannis Giros, he never forgot
the pledge made to him at the
time they parted ; and now he
has the ability and determina
tion to make, good that pledge
"Yohannis Giros," exclaimed
his excellency, arrising from
his seat and extending his
arms, "Yohannis Giros, behold
in me your friend iu boyhood,
Ibrahim, the tobacco seller."
The two embraced and kissed
each other ; tears flowed freely
Yohannis was almost crazed by
the mental reaction. He sob
bed and cried like a child. The
great heart of the grand vizier
was filled with gladness. As
soon as the emotion awakened
by this exciting scene could be
controlled, Ibrahim said to Yo
hannis: ' ""'
" Now you are appointed to
a responsible post, you will bo
my saroff (banker). You will
at once receive your outfit of
dress. When properly attired
go hence with the attendants
of my staff to your home and
tell the good news to your wife
and children. The horse and
equipage suitable to your rank
are ready for you. You will at
once be provided with all the
means required to place your
family in a position becoming
the dignity of your situation.
Attend to these duties to your
family first of all; close up
your little business and then
report to me for duty. Yohan
nis and Ibrahim are united;
the pledge of boyhood is fulfill
ed. Great is the Allah, and
Mahomet is his prophet.
Yohannis was then arrayed
in the glittering uniform of his
rank; a beautiful Arrabian
charger, hansomely comparison
ed, was furnished him, and with
personal servants and a guard
of honor, he rode rapidly to his
humble dwelling at Stamboul,
having been absent a little
more than two hours. The
family could scarcely credit
their own senses when Yohan
nis reappeared so wonderfully
changed externally, and with
his retinue of attendants. They
were overcome with joy. The
scene can be better imagined
than described. From that day
forth they enjoyed happiness
Ibrahim's course had been
this: From the humble position
of tchiboukgi (or pipe bearer)
to the Pasha of Bagdad, he was
successfully promoted to be
clerk and Keyha Bey; then as
Pasha, subsequently as Pasha
of Bagdad, succeeding his torm
er master; then as Pasha of
Aleppo, and finally, in recogni
tion of his great ability and suc
cessful administration of affairs
he Was appointed by the Sultan
as Grand Vizier of tho Turkish
Empire. . '
And this," said tho old gen
tleman to my friend at Bebek,
"is the true story about my
father, which I promised to tell
you, and which; L think, pre
sents an example of sublime
fidelity in friendship.' As I
bless tho memory of (my noble
father, so also do I bless the
memory of his benefactor and
friend, the true hearted Turk,
Ibrahim, once the tobacco seller
I have given this narative as
related to me, without embel-
ishment. This property owned
by Tchelby Yorgaky, at Bebek,
was inherited by him 'from his
father, and the latter became
its posessor from that pledge in
boyhood exchanged between
Yohannis and Ibrahim.

BY PROF. GEORGE P. FISHER.
Somei things are best under
stood by looking at their oppo
sites. Davie Dean, in the
" Heart of Mid-Lothain," firm
against " right-hand heats and
extremes, and left-hand defec
tions," at length attained to
euch strictness of orthodoxy
that, besides himself, he recog
nized only one individual as en
tirely sound; and even respect
ing that highly favored neighbor
he began to harbor some un
comfortable suspicions. , The
humor lies' very much in the
naivete of assumption of the hon
est Davie that his own mind is
the standard and measure for
all other minds, and for the
truth itself. Had he made his
circle large enough to include
his own town, or kirk, or coun
try his narrowness would have
been diminished only in degree.
To take the part for the whole
is the essence of the uncatholic
or anti-catholic principle. This
is the root of schism, in the
sense in Tvhich schisms and
sects are ' condemned in the
New Testament. No matter
what the organization be, be it
hierarchical or congregational,
the sectarian temper is one and
the same. It serves the one
body; it puts a fraction in the
room of the whale unit.
We speak now of the judg
ments which Christians form of
one another. One source of
the anti-catholic feeling is the
imputation to another of all the
logical consequences which are
supposed to be deducible from
his creed. He holds a certain
opinion ; he must, in order to
be consistent, hold a second,
and then third ; and so tho log
ical process is pushed forward
until he is plunged in the
abysses ot heterdoxy. But,
hold! What authorizes you,
even supposing that your logic
is irrefragable, to assume that
he is consistent? What mora
right have you to charge upon
him, as opinions of his own, in
ferences which - he has not
drawn, but which you have
drawn for him ; inferences
which, for aught you know, he
would emphatically disavow?
Huss held the Wickliffie opin
ion that no one but a regenera
ted Christian is entitled to hold
offices in Church or State
This opinion, said the Doctors
at Constance, strikes a blow ai
all authority, civil and ecclesi
astical ; it leaves the question
of his allegiance optional with
the subject In vain did Huss
reject the corollary that was
made for him. I cannot say
how much, but perhaps one-half
the intolerance in the world
would vanish if this one prolific
parent of it were to perish and
men were to cease to weave cut
for their neighbor a web of
opinions, with no better war
rant for their unrighteous logic,
ml yii l i
ine uaivmist charges upon
the Armenian a doctrine of sal
vation by merit ; the Armenian
charges the Calvinist with ma
king God the author of sin.
Each indignantly disclaims the
opinion attributed to mm on
grounds of logic. Wesley ac
cused Toplady of holding this
ast offensivo dogma ; to which
Toplady-r-who wrote the sooth

Each was fighting against in
ferences "which ' his adversary

controversy resound with this
melancholy sort of warfare.
Another primQ; fountain of in
tolerance is the want of. rhet
oricftl flexibility and discren
ment':A man can recognize
his truth only in - one particu

other dress it ' looks like a
stranger and an eneiny'i J Apart
from the inexact use of lan
guage, which belongs t to, un- .
trained or half-trained minds,
there is an endless diversity- of
phrase in which the same truth
may clothe itself. '
There may be an upright and
sincere disposition to embrace
the truth,-which yet, for want
of suitable light and knowledge,
is not apprehended. ' Mfahy de
vout the theologians haye,mada
room for Socrates on this prin

would look at the temper of

deeper than opinion. Tenny-

"Perplext in faith, but pure In dosds,
At last he beat his muslo out,
There lives more faith in honast doubt,
Relieve me, than in half the creed."
This is unsound theology,un
less we allow the possibility of
a true and believing temper,
which for the time may be baf
fled and confused by the cir

placed, by infelicities in tem
perament, in education, or in
the surrounding atmosphere
of thought. .' ,
I have left myself little space
in which to speak of ' indiffer
ence. Indifference is spurious
catholicity ; it is a counterfeit.
The root of catholicity is love.
The secret of a truly catholic
spirit is found in that . wonder
ful portraiture hymn it almost
is of charity, which is found
in the thirteenth chapter of the
first Epistle to the Corinthians.
The root of indifference is
skepticism, and a skepticism
from which all earnest seeking
for truth is absent. Jesus, when
he said that whosoever la hot
against him is for 'him,, depicts
the catholic Bpint. Pontius
Pilate, with his question, in
which an insulting compassion
and contempt were equally ex
pressed: "What is truthl" ex
emplifies tho mood of the indif
ferentist. In some aspects, a
fanatic intolerance is - less re
pulsive than the cool and su
percilious indifference whichj
at the present day, not unfre
quently wears the mein , and '
claims the merit; of "genuine
catholicity and toleration.
