So this spring, when mother died
(Lord, bow Hill and 1 have cried)
I just thought as bow I'd see The Times' men;
Maybe they would give us bread.
If I told 'em mother's dead;
But I'll never, never go to them again.
With a supercilious air.
And a stony hearted stuns, .
They all turned their backs on brother Bill ind
Just a dirty ragged gal

In the city of Cairo there ouoo dwelt a
Christian iiii n li.iiit named Hiiiina wti. bad
auutsHCil a considerable fortune, so that euvy
often tunnel its ghmecs toward bun. As is
usual, however, in this world, Haiitia found
cause to exmiplnin of his condition. It was
true that he had a fine house in the street of
the saddlcumkcrs, that tils furnitti.-o was
costly, that his slaves, pipes, mules ami asses
were of the first quality. One thing was
wanted n son and heir to inherit his wealth
ami continue his unme.
Now, in nn eastern story no sooner is this
difficulty mentioned thuu we ran, aa k gen
eral rule, foresee that in some inmiii'T more
or less ingenious the much desired addition
to the hero's family is miraculously made.
Sometimes a pilgrinmRo is undertaken to
the tomb of a saint; sometimes prayers are
addressed directly to heaven; sometimes a
magician makes his appearance and Kives
two children, on condition that at a certain
age he shall be allowed toclnimoncandsluy it
for the purpose of some horrible incantation;
it following as a matter of course that he
ebooees the favorite, and leaves the di-seon
solato parent to cover his head with ashes, to
clothe himself iu sackcloth and to jx'rfortn
all the heart breaking ceremonies of aa
eastern mourning. The difficulty iu the case
of Hanna was that he had no wife and was
determined never to get married, and, con
sidering that he was past his seventieth year,
the determination can scarcely l calletl un
wise. There was a mystery, however, in the life
of this Christian, which wiil explain iu stomo
measure why he did not give himself up to
absolute and sullen desuir. .About half a
century lieforo the period of which we speak
he had tieen a traveler, had visltM Hind and
Kind, with many other wonderful places, had
resided in l'ersia and sailed upon the Caspian.
He would tell to one or two intimate friends
that when at Ispahan he hail loved and leen
beloved by a lady, whom he married and
lived with for nearly a year. A child was
born to them, a toy, on whom Imth showered
all the treasures of their affection. But it
happened, one day, that they were iu the
gardens in the neighborhood of the city, and
Hanna, feeling weary, went under some trees
to sleep, while his wife sat with the child by
the side of a stream of water that danced
along through a grass fringed beL The
young man's slumlx-r lasted some time. The
shadow which had protected him when he
lay down had moved away when ho awoke.
Indeed, it was the sun playing iim his eye
lids that recalled him frmu the land of dreams.
He rose from the warm turf and culled lan
guidly for Lishot; but, though he could see
all across the meadow w here he had left her
under a locust tree by the side of the water,
his eyes discerned no sign of life.
He went forwnrd slowly, stretching his
arms and yawning, until he came to the
spot whero the young mother had Iwen sit
ting. Here he saw t races of the trampling
of many feet, liotli of horses and men, and a
ribband that had adorned the wrist of the
child lay on the ground. Fear of a calamity
lainn upon him. Ho gazed more eagerly
ever the meadow, and behU a track through
the grass as if a body of horse had rushed
rapidly along. Chie loud cry of "Lisbetf' a
o-y that burst in auguish from his lips, but
to which he did not expect an answer showed
that he understood what disaster had U-fullen
Mm. He sprang oti the track of theravishers,

Tta Turcomans wero shaking their sjienrs iu
triumph as they entered upon the desert
with their prey.
Hanna had never obtained nny reasonable
Information ns to the fate of l.tsls't. Per
haps he did not do all that some heroic na
tures would to recover her and the child. He
seijt messengers with offers of money to the
tribes; he even undertook a journey to the
stronghold of .Infill- Khan, but without suc
cess. Th Turcomans hinted that erhaps
the charms of I.isUt had smitten some inde
pendent chief, who had carried her faraway
into the wilderness. After some years of vain
waiting, the extreme manifestations of grief
diaappcttred. Hanna resumed his commercial
enterprises, and at length became established
in Egypt, where he remained, buying and
Belling, until wealth surrounded him. But
fifty years passed away, and he did not take
unto himself another wife.
So far he easily coutldedto the few whom
he called his friends, and when these would
condole with him as to his childless ositton
be used to smile strangely and insinuate that
there might yet be found an heir to Inherit
what he amassed. Yet he never admitted
that his hopes lay In the child of I.Lsliet, and
that ho hail some faint reason for Ix lieviiig
that he was not feeding upon a delusion.
The truth is that Hanna, who was a good,
kind man made letter and kinder by all his
misfortunes as ho was traveling lietween
Bagdad and Damascus, several years after
the lom of I.isliet, fell iu with a man who
begged for succor from amidst some bushes,
for he was totally linked, having been strip
ped by robbers. AH he asked was a cloak
and a loaf, that he might contiuuo his jour
ney and reach a neighlsiring town. But
Hanna stopjied his kallla and clothed and
fad him, and gave him money und set him
upon a mule his own mule, white and fit for
a king and took him all the way to Damas
cus, where he set him down in the streets,
without so much as askiug his name, his
country or his fuitb.
This poor stranger was a Jew, who came
many years afterward to Egypt and recog
nized his benefactor. Re was also n magician,
who discovered the secret thoughts of those
with whom lie conversed; o ho said one ilay
to Hanna: "There is mighty sorrow within
thee, for I see the signature of regret upon
thy brow near the right temple."
"I regret not to have a child," replied the
"Nay," said the Jew; "thy grief hath rela
tion to a thing past. Tell me thy story and
I may be of service."
Hanna told his story, and the Jew forth
with went away, and burned (lerfmnes, and
uttered words and wrote symbols, and
wrestled with the keepers of the unknown.
When be came back to the merchant, he said,
"I have not discovered all that 1 wlsu to
know; but they tell me that if thou canst
find the Whispering Tree, it will speak to
thee of Lislict and her child."
The Jew could give no furthor information,
but Hanna, who Ix-lleved, began forthwith
to make cautious inquiries about the "Whis
pering Tree," He questioned not only the
people of Cairo, but wrote to nil his corre
spondent! in vurious part of the glolie, ask
ing about this strange thing. Indeed, he
went about catechUing the world in general
respecting the mysterious Whisperiujj Tree.
But he got no information. All replied that
they were ignorant. Nolsidy hail heard of a
tree that whispered. Year after year Hanna
persisted in inquiring of every stranger who
arrived from the various province w hether
he knew anything about the Whispering
Tree, until time passed and strength begnu
to fail. When all his friends were tired of
hearing him ask the same question, and he
became tired of asking it, despair was a fre
quent visitor with him.
One day he was at Gizneh, in a garden,
drinking coffee with his friend Malek and
listening to tho bubbling of his water pipe,
when along tho path leading from the pyra
mids appeared coming a string of laden cam
els accompanied by many men. "Is it the
caravan from Mourzoukr" inquired Hanna.
"Nay," replied Malek, "that caravan came
in tho week past, and I know not from what
country this arrival may be." They went to
the gurden gate, moved by curiosity, and
waited until tho forerunners of the caravan
Their costume was that of the sons of the
desert, except that rouud tho head was a
wrapper which enfolded both the brow and
tbo mouth, leaving little more than tho eyes
"They are of the Muthelnmeen," said
Malck, "and come from the deserts toward
Doled -es-Souduu; but of what tribe wo shall
only learn by asking." Then he raised his
Voice and said: "Oh, strangers, merchants,
from what country, nnd with what mer
chandiser Tho man addressed muttered
from Ipcncath hU muffler: "From Agdaz, in
tho laud of Ahir, with gold dust aud ivory
and a remnant of slaves, tho strong and the
sturdy, the rest having terishe-l by the way."
So saying, he passed on.
"Hast thou ever heard of this couutry?"
inquired Hanna. But little," said Malek.
"It is not a country of commerce, and I
cannot understand why they should have
como this way." As ho sjxiko a youth of
pleasant count. !i.'inee, riding on a camel,
with his mouth uncovered, came slowly
toward them. "Oh, young man," cried
Hanna. u-s if obeying a sudden inspiration,
"thou comcst from unknown hinds over
wonderful regions. IVrelianee thou canst
tell tne of the Whisieriiig Treof" "It is at
Kama," replied tho youth, striking with his
heel the neck of his camel aud causing it to
turn out. of the line and stop; "and what, my
father, is tho reason of thy curiosity i" "Tis
a long story," replied Hanna; "but if thou
wilt nlij;lit and repose thyself after thy fa
tigue I will relate it to thee." The young
man leap-Kl down and called to a black man
who had followed him on foot to take care of
tho camel, und entered the garden with t.ie
two old men.
When he had heard tho story of the mer
chant the young stranger said: "My story
is similar to thin.-, oh, my father. Thou art
seeking what thou hast perhaj never seen.
I am seekiie; w hat has only appeared to me
iu a vision. 1 come not of the Muthc lameen
of Agdaz. My father was a merchant of
Egypt, who traveled with me into the land
of Talels, of wise men and magicians, and,
dying, left mo there a child. Now it hap
peneil a year ago that I dreamed a dream,
aud lo! a maiden of surpassing beauty came
ami bent over me like a lily over a pool of
sleeping water; lient and bent until her lips
swept my temple and 1 awoke tremulous as
after a kiss of love. I stretched my arms in
the darkness, but there was nothing; I called
my slave, who came with a light, and there
was nothing. Then I knew that I had
dreamed, and turned upon my pillow again
and sought to return to the country which
I had quitted. Soon I slept again and tho
same maiden appeared but this time afar
off beckoning me to follow. I endeavored
to rise, but my limits bad lost their vigor. I
struggled, but in vain. The earth drew me
still closer to it until I burst away into con
sciousness, and found myself trembling in the
lied. From that time I pined for love of the
maiden of my dream, and naught would con
tent me. My friends at first laughed aud
mocked, but when I became in truth sick and
pale and unable to rise from the bed unable
ami unworthy, for whenever I slumtiered the
same form of beauty appeared when I drew
near to thegutesof death they brought to
me a w ise man. who inquired into my case
and smiled when he heard what had befallen,
"The remedy is not easy; for the road is
long and there are dangers by tho way. But
if thou bust courage, thou wilt hear what thou
wishest murmuring amidst the leaves of the
Whispering Tree." He then told me that this
tree was situated at a place called Kama, in
Khorassau, beyond Persia. I instantly sold
all my goods, and prepared to depart with a
caravan that was bound for Tripoli; after we
hml traveled a month we came to a country
where there was war, aud we were com
pelled to traverse the regions of Thibet, and
the Huron j mountains, and the Wahs, and to
travel through many disasters to Egypt.
This U the reason why we have met; and
now it will l lietter for us both to journey
together in search of this wonderful tree."
When Hanna heard what this young man
said, that Kama was in the country of Kho
rassau beyond Persia, he doubted not but
that ho should hear there some news of the
lost l.isbet and her child. He therefore re
solved to depart in company with the young
man, whose name was Gorges, although the
prudent Malek objected to hLs great age and
the possibility of danger and death. In a few
busfneJ3i,.JJ,,,"t"y ",'r,hant had closed bis
money and aVase of Jewels'1 Jfii". J PJ'rse of
company the love lorn Gorges. "
The narrative need not trace their itiner
ary. Many montlis elapsed ere the young
and tho old traveler the toys of love and
parental affection were wandering, dis
guised in humble raiment, through the wilds
of Khorassun, asking of the rare people they
met for a place called Kama. Nobody
seemed able to give them any intelligence.
The place was a place unknown. They began
to think they were the victims of delusion,
and when they had iwsml several years in
the vam search, it is said that they tcame, as
it were, mud. They thought and talked of
nothing but the Whispering Tree of Kama.
The people in the villages and the encamp
ment knew them as the strr.nge questioners,
nnd pitied their cae; and instead of harming
them whenever thoy met them on the road,
would cry. "Hits there any news been heard
by ye, O melancholy searchers? () father I
O b'other! has the unknown place lieeu nude
known! Has the secret Iwn revealed f
Thus thev continued wearying the desert
with :onstant going to nnd fro, until Hanna
lieca iie a l nt shadow, and the youth grew
to lie a lieurdod man.
It happened one evening, as they were
going throii ;li a mountainous country which
they hml not hitherto trodden, far on the
way to Bokhara, they came to a small valley
locked in the embrace of rugged rocks. Its
surface wus like a green emerald. Grass and
shruliM and trees and flowers spreud to the
feet of erpcndit-iilur cliffs. A silver stream
wound here and there, us if unwilling to leave
pleasant a Sst, and at last gathered into a
unall lake without aoHirent issue. The two
wayfarers rxectcd to find a village where
they might pass the uight. Hut there was uo
ign of human habitation. The night liegan
balmily; the stars shone warmly; there was
aenreely any breeze, and the little that blew
was warm aud fragrant as the breath of wo
man. Hanna und Gorges lay down under
the shadow of a tree and slept as the travel
weary alone can sleep.
They both dreamed a dreani if dream it
was. The tree above their beads began to
wave and wave Its boughs; murmurs seemed
to creep from every leaf ; there was a hum
and a buzz, as if a swarm of bees was settling
overhead; and by degrees a chorus of small
voice seemed to sing: "This is Kama, Kama,
Kama I Go no farther, but tarry here. Kest
and eai-e will find you; for this is Kama,
All night long the same melody refreshed
their ears, aud an evil spirit, who lient over
them intending to do them wrong, fled away;
for, on seeing their smile, of happiness, he said
to himself: "That is the smile of the angels
of Goil !"
The birds were singing when the old man
and the young awoke. The name of Kama
was still ringing in thoir ears; and it seemed
as if the thrush that hail come to perch in
the boughs overhead was repeating it. Sud
denly a clear, sweet voice sounded over the
meudow, and tho wayfarers lieheld a maiden
withn janqioii her head, tripping lightly
along a imthway that passed near them aud
led to tho stream. She was singing, and the
burden of her song was, "Fair is the valley
of Kama!'' Hanna turned up his eyes with
gratitude toward the Whispering Tree; but
Gorges kept gazing intently at the maiden.
His dream stood before him emliodied.
The maiden of Kama was alarmed at first
at the aspect of strangers; but they soon con
trived to reassure her, and bidding them wait
nutil site returned from the stream, she prom
ised to conduct them to her dwelling. They
waited accordingly, and following her steps,
which the made slow out of respect to the
age of Hanna, passed by a green garden, In
the mlt 1st of which were three graves, and
reached a kind of hermitage scooped in the
rock, iii front of which, on a sunny bench,
sat an old man with a huge white beard that
wept 'jo his knees. No stranger had pene
trated into that valley in many a long year;
but the patriarch was past the age when sur
prise is possible, and meekly bade the travel
ers be teated on the bench beside, him. '
When they bad refreshed themselves with
rest and food the old hermit bade them tell
their si ories, whilst the maiden sat at their
feet, a little nearer" to Gorges than to the
others, lstening with downcast eyes. Hauna
related what had sent them in nearch of the
Whispering Treeof Kama, omitting nothing,
not even the love of tho young man for the
being ol his dream. The hermit smiled in
his white beard and said: "lam Hto years
old and no longer fear the enmity of man;
for I an. in hopes of the mercy of God. I
have sit ned, but I have suffered. It was I,
0 Hanna, who take away thy wife Lisbet.
1 took h jr to my touts, not far from this val
ley but she refused her love, aud died. Then
I desponded and retired to this hermitage
with hei child, which I bred as my own. 1
called hitn Kama, which in our tongue meant
the Bereaved, aud named the place of our
dwelling after him. He grew up not know
ing his origin, and in duo time knew a mai
den, and took her and dwelt with her in hap
piness until he died, and she died leaving this
daughter to my care.
"Theri are the graves of Lioliet.and her son
and her sou's w ife," said the old man, point
ing to tbd three mounds of earth. His hand
fell, says tho story, with a rattle. Old age
had dom its work. He had lived to restore
the grand-daughter of IJsbet to him who had
so long sought for herself, and was buried in
the little garden before his hermitage.
The god old Hanna whilst the hermit
was teliii g his story put his arms round the
necks of Miriam and Gorges, and pressing
them to I is breast, tried to speak, but could
only give utterance to a loud cry of triumph
and joy. They say, too, that he always
wandcrea in his speech a little afterward,
and woul I, now and then, wish that he were
asleep In ICama by the side of Usliet.

IT IS VERY EASY
To restore painted walls and wood work to their original freshness,
if you will take a pailful of tepid water, two sponges, and a cake
of Ivory Soap. Apply the soap with one sponge, and remove the
soap and dirt with the other, rinse the latter frequently, and change
the water often. Ordinary soap is apt to be too highly chemicaled
to use on paint. The Ivory Soap is mild but very effective.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be" just as good as the 'Ivory 5"
they ARC NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it."
