One pleasant afternoon the Culiph Chasid,
of Bagdad, eat smoking his rosewood pipe
and stroking bis beard, appareutly la good
humor. Every day at this time it was his
custom to receive tho Grand Vbier Mansor;
so on this occasion bo also came, but bis- face
bore an unusual and pensive expression. The
caliph removed his pipe and said:
"Grand vizier, what is it that troubles
The grand vizier crosed bis arms and bow
inff before bis muster he answered:
"I know not that I appear troubled, but at
the gate tbre stands a merchant who offers
such beautiful wares that. 1 (eel provoked 1
being a poor man."
- The caliph, who had long desired aa oppor
tunity to pivo his minister a pleasant sur
prise, desired the man to lie brought up.
Tbe merchant was a fat little man witb a
dark face and dressed in rags, while on bis
back be carried a box containing pearls,
rings, silver mounted pistols, vases and
combs, beiides a good vtock of rich stuffs.
The Caliph Chasid, af wr exumining every
thing, Anally bought for himself and Mansor
two pairs of beautiful pistols, and for the
latter's wife a comb. Suddenly the caliph
spied a little drawer, and asked what it coa
3 tained. The merchaut opened the drawer
and took therefrom a box which held a dark
powder and a manuscript La a strange lan
guage, which neither Ch&bid nor Mansor had
ever seen before.
"They were sold to me by a vender In
Mecca, " said the man, "and as I plauo little
value upon them they are at thy disposal for
The caliph, who was something of a book
worm, bought tbe box and contents and dis
missed the man. Feeling a curiosity to know
what the characters on the scroll might
mean, he asked the grand vizier whether he
knew of anybody able to decipher tbe writ-,
"My lord and master," he answered, "near
the -great mosque there lives Solini tbe
Learned, who knowa all languages; perhaps
ha can halp thee."
Soon the wise Selun appeared; he bowed
and exclaimed: "Thy will be done, O caliph !"
Long ha examined the manuscript and then
suddenly spoko: "This is Latin, my lord; I
wagar my head!"
The caliph spoke: "Then reaii, O man!"
Selira began: "Tbou man, who liudost this
seroU, praise Allah for his mcrcios! Whoever
shall snuff of the powdor in the box and shall
exclaim 'Mutator may be transferred into
any animal and becomo familiar with its
language. Should be desire again to become
himself, he must bow tluvo times to the east
and speak tbe word. Hut beware that be
laugh not, for then would be forget the word
and f orevor remain a beast !"
The caliph was overjoyed He dismissed
Sellm the Learned with a rich gift and ex
claimed to Mansor:
"Early in the mornins coniethouto me,
TVs will then wander about, take some of the
powder and bear what is said In tbe air, in
the water. In the forest and in the fields."
Betimes the next day Mansor appeared be
fore his master, who, after placing the box
in his girdle and commanding his people not
to follow, started with his minister on the
stroll. Mansor remembered a pond some
distance off where he had frequently seen a
number of storks majestically deporting
themselves, and suggested paying them a
The caliph agreed and they approached
the pond. They observed one old fellow
pacing up and down with j,-reat dignity,
probably seeking a meal of frogs, and all the
while communing with himself in stork. An
other stork was floating gracefully in the air
at some height, also in quest of his breakfast.
"By my beard, my master, I fancy these
two long legs are holding a sprightly conver
sation. Say, how were it were wo storks 7"
"Well said," replied tho caliph, "but first
let us once more repeat our instructions how
to become ourselves a -jam. Ah, so. Bow
three times to tbe east and say 'Mutabor.'
But for mercy sake no laughing, or we re
Quickly he drew from his pocket the box,
took some of the powder and supplied the
grand vizier. Then both cried "Mutabor,"
and behold! their limbs shrank and became
thin and red, their arms changed to wings,
their necks became' a yard long and their
bodies were covered witb soft feathers. After
long astonishment the caliph said: "'What a
beautiful bill thou hast, Mansor; by tho
Prophet's beard, such a sight I have never

aad approached the other, and our friends
beard the following:

"Thanks, dear Eattlebill, Tm looking for
my breakfast. May I offer a piece of lizard,
or would a frog's leg be more to your taste I"
"Really, my d3ar, 1 have no appetite this
morning. My object is a different one. To
day I am to dance before my father's guests,
and I came down to practice a little before
hand" No sooner said than done. But the strange
gyrations of this bird dancer, were too much
for the gravity of our friends, and they
burst into an uncontrollable fit of launbter.
Then it occurred to Mansor that mirth dur
ing the transformation was dangerous, and
he imparted his apprehensions to the caliph.
"By Mecca and Medina," said he, "that
were a bad joke wero we unable to become
men again! But the word -I can't think."
"Mu-mu-mu" They bowed to the oast
Innumerable times, but the word was not

Badly they wandered through tho fields.
Back to town they could not return, for who
would know or believe themf Thus several
days passed In agony and suffering, for their
natures were uncnangeq ana irogs ana lizards
still far from being a delicacy. They were
able to fly, however, and frequently they
traveled to Bagdad, where, from convenient
roofs, they saw what was going on.
m At first thero appeared much evidence of
sadness in the streets, but on the fourth day
they witnessed a gorgeous pageant approach
ing the palace. On a bejeweled horse sat a
young man in a gold embroidered crimson
mantle, at whose feet all Bagdad fell and
"All hall, Mirza, caliph of Bagdad!"
The two storks on the roof looked at each
other, and Chasid said;
"This Mirza is tho son of my enemy, the
powerful magician Kashmir, who has sworn
vengeance on me. For this am I transformed.
They rose and flew towards Medina. Night
came and tbey saw not far away a ruin. A
Bear inspection showed it to have been a
stately castle, and they wandered through its
lofty halls. Buddenly Mansor whispered:
"A grand vizier, and a stork at that,
should not fear ghosts, but methinka I near
Tbe caliph listened and distinctly heard a
walling and crying. lie started forward,
and soon, at tbe foot of a flight of stone
stairs, reached a door on whose threshold he
stood in wonderment For there, chained to
the floor, sat a large owl, whose eyes abed
abundant tears, and who gave forth the sad
sounds tbey had heard. Perceiving our
friends, the uttered a joyful cry and ex
olairned: Welcome, ye storks 1 I take ye an a good
omen for my deliverance; for it was prophe
sied that a stork would cause me much joy I"
When tho caliph bad recovered from his
surpriss he said:
"O, owl, In thee I see a fellow creature in
distress, but expect not from us to receive
faerp. Hear my story and lose hope."
Then be related what we already know.
Thepwl heard and said:
Hear my story and know that I am no
less unhappy than thou. My father is king
of India, and 1, his unhappy daughter, am
named Lusa. Kashmir, who transformed
you, is also tbe cause of my misfortune. Ee
desired me as bis son's wife, but my father, a
violent man, caused him to be thrust from
tho palace. The wretch contrived to have
conveyed to me a potion, which changed me
to this condition. On awakening from a long
trance I found myself here, Kashmir bawl
ing in my ears: "Thus shalt thou remain,
ugly and repulsive, until some one shall, even
in this hateful guise, espouse thee. Thus Kosh
nur doth avenge himself!' Many months
have passed away and I am bore alone and
The caliph had listened intently. "There
seems to be a connection between our histo
ries, but where shall wo find the keyf"
The owl answered: "It was foretold that a
stork would hrinor me cood fortuno, and 1
believe I can save us all The magician who
has made us all unhappy comes once a month
to thin ruin. Not far from here is a ball.
There be entertains fellows In vice and witch
craft Among the stories that are then told
it may be thut you will hear your own and
the word you have forgotten."
"Dearest princess," cried Chasid, "when

"Speak, speukl" cried tho caliph, "I agree
"It is that inasmuch as I would also be free,
one of you mu.t marry me."
Tho grand vizier looked doubtful and mut
tered something about "a pig in a poke," but
the caliph accepted tbe condition and heard
that on that vory night an orgy would be
held. A long nnd dark passage took them to
a crevice whence they bad a view of the
banqueting hail. Tho company were assem

"Oh," answered Kashmir, "it is a difficult

Tho joy of tho storks was excessive. The
caliph returned to the owl and sr.td :

Trouble Over a Mrhoul Contract.
John Volk & Co , of Rock Island, lo
whom was awarded the cod tract for erec
tion of our new school bouse, submitted
satisfactory bonds and formally closed
tbe contract Friday of last week. Satur
day tbey broke ground for tbe building
and excavation for the foundation is now
going: on. After the letting of tbe con
tract Messrs. Shaw and Waite, counsel
for O Bryan and Stewart, who attempted
to secure an injunction restraining the
board of education from procecdiug witb
tbe building, notified the contractors
that suit was Dending, evidently with
intent to intimidate them from ex
ecution of tbe contract. Tbe matter
was submitted to the ablest counsel
in Rock Island and the contractors
advised to go ahead. The probability
is that the onlv point seriously consid
ered was wheiber O'Brvan and Stew
art bad given a bond sufficient to com
pensate tbe contractors for any annoy
ance that a further attempt at litigation
might cause tuem. It seems high time
that child's play in regard to tbe new
school bouse is abandoned. The people
of tbe district do not want to be har-
raased by further quibbling and kicking
against tbe school house.- As one of the
heaviest tax payers in tfie district said
the other day, "I favor the school bouse.
thougb I did express opposition to it
when they told me it was to cost over
160,000. I never was opposed to a rea
sonable expenditure for such a building,
as we need and has been contracted for."
And this is the general sentiment now
that the facts are known to the public.
Grogs misrepresentation was at the bot
tom of tbe feeling engendered against tbe
school house, not only as to cost but as
to the legality of tbe acts of the board of
education. Witb the facts as tbey exist

result of their lon experience, and is unquestionably the soap to be
used by all who value the advice (quoted below) of Ellen H. Richards,
Instructor in Chemistry, Woman's Laboratory, Massachusetts In
stitute of Technology, who says, "In the purchase of soap, it is
"safest to choose the make of some well known and long established
"firm who have a reputation to lose if their product is not good."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white sonps, each represented to be "just as good as the Mvory';"
they ARE NOT, but like a!l counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and Insist upon getting it.
