Cairo with a carefully guarded bundle
Ryanne sells Jones the famous holy Yh

from a pasha at Bagdad. Jones meets
Major Callahan and later is introduced to
Fortune Chedsove by a woman to whom
he had loaned 150 pounds at Monte Carle
some months previously, and who turns
out to be Fortune's mother. Jones takes
Mrs. Chedscye and Fortune to a polo
game. Fortune returns to Jones the
money borrowed by her mother. Mrs.
Chedsoye appears to be engaged in some
mysterious enterprise unknown to the
daughter. Hyanne interests Jones in the

looked more like a fine hexagonal of
onyx than a gem. It was one of the
curiosities of the bazaars, however,
and tourists were generally round it
in force. To his experienced eye it
was no more than a fine specimen of
emerald quartz, worth what any fool
of a collector was willing to pay for it.
From this bazaar he passed on into
the next, and there he saw Fortune.
And as Mahomed, always close at

face soften, the cynical smile become
tender, he believed he saw his way to
The Bitter Fruit
Fortune had a hearty contempt for
persons who ate their breakfast in
bed. For her the glory of the day was
the fresh fairness of the morning,
when every one's step was buoyant,
and all life stirred energetically. There
was cheer and hope' everywhere; men
faced their labors with clear eye and
feared nothing; women sang at their
work. It was only at the close of day
that despair and defeat stalked the
highways. So she was up with the
sun, whether In her own garden or in
these odd and mystical cities. Thus
she saw the native as he was, not as
he later in the day pretended to be,
for the benefit of the Feringhi about
to be stretched upon the sacrificial
stone. She saw, with gladness, the
honey-bee thirling the rose, the plow
man's share baring the soil; the morn
ing, the morning, the two or three
hours that were all. all her own. Her
mother was always Irritable and petu
lant In the morning, and her uncle
never developed the gift of speech till
She had the same love of prowling
that lured Ryanne from the beaten
paths. She was not inquisitive but
curlous, and that ready disarming
mile of hers opened many a portal.
She was balancing upon her gloved

a young man and his sweetheart. His

unwisely, that love is an easy victim,

The merchant was dazed. He had
misjudged what he now recognized as
an old hand. The two were turning
up another street when he ran out,
shouting to them and waving the
pendant. Ryanne laughed.
"Ten pounds. I am a poor man, ef
fendi, and I need the money. Ten
pounds. I am giving it away." The
merchant's eyes filled with tears, a
trick left to him from out of the ruins
of his youth, that ready service to
forestall the merited rod.
Ryanne counted out ten sovereigns
and put the pendant in Fortune's
hand. And the pleasure in his heart
was such as he had not known in
many days. The merchant wisely hur
ried back to his shop.
"But . . ." she began protest

"I really cannot accept it as a gift.
Let me borrow the ten pounds."
"And why can't you accept a little
gift from me?"
She had no ready answer. She
gazed steadily at the dull pearls and
the flaky emeralds. She could not ask
him where he had got those sover
eigns. She could not possibly be so
cruel. She could not dissemble in
words like her mother. That gold she
knew to be a part of a dishonest bar
gain whose forestep had been a theft
-more, a sacrilege. Her honesty was
like purz gold, unalloyed, unmixed
with sophistic subterfuges. That the
young man who had purchased the rug
,might be mildly peccable had not yet
occurred to her.
"Why not, Fortune*" Ryanne was
very earnest, and there was a pinch at

"Why, I do like you. Horace. But I
do not like any man well enough to

make is to borrow the money."
"Well, then, let it go at that" He
was too wise to press her.
"And can you afford to throw away
ten pounds?" with assumed lightness.
"My one permanent impression of you
is the young man who was always
forced to borrow car-fare whenever he
returned from Monte Carlo."
