" 'Ask your own heart, and bu mind
ful of its d?ctalos. I oannot doceivo
you if 1 would, for Allah has created

"I was convinced that tho maiden
spoko truly. Turning to my veiled
companion, after one lust glance to
ward thu city, I said:
" 'Loud on. I will follow you with
out reserve. I put ?ny trust in you, al
though tho way appears dilHoult und
tho end is ns closely veiled in obscurity
und doubt us aro your features hidden
from my sight.1
"Sim turned and walked llootly
across the desert, and soon the blissful
city was lost from viow below thu hor
izon, and all around us lay tho silent,
merciless sands.
"Day after ?lay and night after
night wu plodded on. Sometimes an
awful scqsu of weariness oppressed mo;
my feet sunk to tho ankles in tho re
morseless, yielding sands; the intenso
heat shriveled my skin and parched my
lips. Hut my companion was never
weary and paused not. If I turned
laggard shu prompted mo to greater
exertlou with tho words: 'Even tho

aro but blessings in disguise. At tho
end thcro is eternal pcaco and a laurel
wreath for your brow. Would you
fall now, after you havo suffered so
much?"
"At ouch sound of hor voice my faith
was renuwed as if by magic and iiiy
.strength came back to mo.
"lt scumed to mu that months had
boon consumed in our journey, whoa at

stream, beyond it was a stretch of
nairns and cedars, intermingle;! with

" 'You have attained tho reward of
your.sullorings,' .said my guide. 'Huro
at last is rest and peace. All your

comos your ruward. Honeoforth you
will never know a want, but pass your

to your fellows. Our paths lio a littlo
apart from this time, but I will watch
over you. A sonso of my prosonco will
always ho vouchsafed to you, and in
Paradise wo shall bo reunited.'
"'Hut,' I implored, 'why must you
leave mo? You havo been my good
angel, my guido, my savior in all tho
trials Which havo besot, my oath. Re
main ovor at my sido, for I may yet
fail without your aid.'
" 'I would that it might bo so; but I

" 'Thou lot mo soo your face once

" 'Know you not that tho face of an
Arab malden is evor voilod? Even so
it is with the angels when in human
company. If you should but look into
my oyes I should bccoiuo human liko
yourself; though our companionship
could novor end.'
"'And that is my chiof desire' was
my responso; and seizing lier veil I toro
it from her taco. It was not a cotiu
tonnuco of raro beauty, ns tho world or
dinarily jlldgOS tho Mandi-,!.melli-, of
women; but it was puro nnd swoot and
true, it touched my bQfl|fr a? novor
had woman's fnco appealed to it be

"Tho groat soulful oyes looked stead
fastly into my owu. 'You havo found
mo, aftor yoars of vain searching, and
roloascd mo from my bondage. Hence
forth nm I with you lo tho end of lifo.
For yon I was croatud, and faithful will
I romain unto you until death; and
oven thu gravo will not ludo us from
each oilier.'
"I awoko. Tho Uro had diod away
to einher.i, and tho room was growing
cold. Long I marveled what such a
dream could portond. Wooks rolled
by, and tho fuco of tho Arabian maldon
was ovor before, mo. Tho months
pa-,-ed into yoars-and still every lin
eament of tiloso nngolio foaturos and
tllO expression of tho deep, soulful eyes
remained implanted In my memory.
Half unconsciously I scanned thu facos
of thousands in tho busy streets, but
among all tho hurrying throng that
faco Was nOVOr encountered. Still, I
was impressed that one day I should
lind lt. 1 pm .levered In my profession,
and, when downcast by adverso for
tines, that silent fnco strongthoncd
mo, os it had in my dream of.tho jour
ney across tho desort."
"I had becomo Intousoly lntorestod,
for my friend was an excellent story
teller. At this point ho paused.
"Well," said I, inquiringly, "what
carno of lt?"
"Two yoars ago," ho continued, "I
canto to Kan 1 ranoisco. Ono day,
shortly after my arrival, I was stand
log on a streut-corner waiting for a
car, and in tho rooantlme turned and
carelessly glanced at a caso of photo

of stairs loading to an artist's studio.

hastened up tho stairway to tho studio,
Tho photographer evldontly considered
mo an oscapod lunatic.
"You lia vc a picture, in your caso bo

M *A picturo! Wily, thero aro two

" 'Very true; I did not think of that,
lint, pardon me, sir, ono of those pho

an absout friend whom 1 groat,y desiro
to fiptl. Will you bo kind enough to
lend me your aid in tho matter?'
'* 'Certainly, sir. Your manner
when von Hist carno in lcd me to doubt
your sanity. However, 1 am now re
assured, and shall bo most happy to
sorvo vpn.'
His* kindness availed little. Tho
photographer could not tell to whom
the picturo belonged. Ho concluded
that it must bo tho order of a transient
visitor to tho city; tho negativo had
beon destroyed-and so I departed in a
moro disturbed condition of mimi than
before.
"I had intended to pursue my pro
fession in Southern California, ns clo.o
attention to work had induced a pul
monary complaint from which in this
mild climate I hoped to obtain relief,
but all my energies were directed to
wards Unding tho original of tho haunt
ing evasive photograph.
"I secured au engagement upon tho
stall'of an evening nowspapor. Wher
ever 1 went-in church, theater, or lip*
ou tho streets-my whole soul was ab
sorbed in searching for what a major
ity of persons would call an illusion.
In the fulfillment of my duties I was
sent to furnish a roport of tho com
mencement exercises of a woman's
college at Oakland, just across tho bay.
Some straugo impulso moved nie to
send down my roport and to accept an
invitation from tho president of tho
faculty to attend an evening reception
at tho college hall. This was not in
consonance with my ordinary habits,
for a peculiar and sometimes most un
pleasant diflldeoco lett mo to nvoid
rather than seek public assemblages of
thc kind. Tho night was warm, aud
tho ladies sought tho pleasant balco
nies overlooking tho bay to enjoy tho
refreshing brcezo from ibo Pncitic. As
I sauntered up to ono of tho windows I
observed a young woman, who in sumo
mysterious way did not impious me as
a stranger, gazing abstractedly into
the starry depths overhead. Thinking
that it was some one to whom I had
been introduced during thu evening. I
aroused her from her reverie by a com
monplace remark. As shu t urned her
fnco towards mino our oyo* met I
starlod back in astonishment. 1 had
mot the lady of my dream!
" 'Pardon ..io, but we liavo met bo

tered souses.
" 'I do not know,sir; thoro is certain

spoke in tho same sweet and bewitch

ory. In nay coe fusion, I quickly ad
ded:
*. 'It must havo boon in Arabia.'
"Tho eyebrows wero arched in sur
prise.
" 'I think not, sir,-I havo ucvor trav
eled in tho K?st.'
"Well, to cut my story short, a last
ing friendship was formed then and
there. You have met Mrs. Manches
ter. She lins proved nil that my dream
foretold. It is true that sho lins no
recollections of having boen my com
panion in the desert sands of Africa,

These people aro an aid to you so long

"Socioty novor forgivos you if you

"Thcro is nothing socioty is moro

"Ho could say 'thank you' with the

like tho condensation of a sonnet."
"Ho could put on a glove with such
a graco that tho woman who saw him

"There won't bo a smile given you
to-night that tho person giving it does
not count on gaining a percentage for
tho amiability shown."
"Ho's Uko a sentiment of Byron, em
bodied in tho most perfect shape a

"Tho court paid him was merely a
form of supercilious condescension
which wealth and 'birth' sometime i
amuso themselves by lavishing on wit
and"*parts."
..Self-interest ho had found to be the
key of human action.1*
"Tho world doesn't give its wholo
heart to tl.o ravisher of its favors."
"Ho was sonsitivo to tho proprieties

"A self-made man, he secretly

Whou Patrick Henry put his old cast
iron spectacles back ou top of his hoad
and whooped for liberty ho did not
know that somo day wo would havo
more of it than wo anew what to do
willi. Ho lillie dreamed that tho limo
would come when wo would havo moro
liborty than wo could pay for. Whou
Mr. Henry sawed tho air and shouted
for liborty or doatli I do not bolievo
that hr knew that tho timo would como
when Liborty would stand knoc-doop
in tho mud of lledloo's Island and
yearn for a solid placo to stand upon.
lt sooms to mo that wo havo too
much liberty in this country in somo
ways. Wo havo moro liberty thau wo
have money. Wo guaran toe that ovory
mau in Amorica shall fill himsolf up
full of liberty at our uxpouso, and tho
loss of an American ho is tho moro lib
orty ho can have. If ho desires to en
joy himself all he needs is a slight for
eign accent and a willingness to mix up
with polities ns soon as ho can got his
buggago off tho stoumor. Tho moro I
study American institutions tho moro
I rogrot^that 1 was not born a foreign
er, so that I could havo Boniothing to
say alu mt tho management nf our groat
land. If I could not bu a foreigner, I
believe I would prefer to bo a Mormon
or an Indian, not taxed.
I am ofton lcd to ask, in tho lan
guage of,?bu poet? "Is tho Caucasian
pTayod out? Most ovcrrbody can
havo a good deal of fun in this country
except tho American. Ho sooms to bo
so busy paying Iiis taxes all tho lime
that he has very little limo to minglo
in the giddy whirl of tho alien. That
is tho reason that tho alien who rides
across tho United States on the "limit
ed mail" and writes a book about us
boforo breakfast wonders why wo aro
always lu a hurry. That is the reason
wo have to throw our meals into our
selves with a dull thud and have no timo
to maintain a warm personal friend?
ship with our families.
Wo do not caro much for wealth,
but wo must havo freedom, and free
dom costs money. Wo havo adver
tised to furnish a bunch of freedom to
everyman, woman, or child whocomcs
to our shores, and wo are going to de
liver tho goods whothor wo havo any
left for ourselves or nob What would
tho groat world beyond tho seas say to
us if some day tho blue-eyed Mormon,
with his hoart full of lovo for our
female seminarios and our old women's
homos, should land upon our shoros
and lind that wo wore using all tho
liborty ourselves?
What do wo want of liborty, any
how? What could wo do with it if wo
had itP It takes a mau of leisure to
onjoy liborty, aud wo havo no leisure
whatever. lt is a good thing to keep
in tho house "for the use of guests
only," but wo don't neod it ourselves.
Therefore I nm iu favor of a statuo
of Liborty Enlightening tho World, be
causo il will show tiiat wo koop it on
tap winter and summer. We want the
whole bioad world to remember that
when it gets tired of oppression it can
como boru to America and oppress us.
We are used to it, and wo rather liko
il. If wo don't like it we can get on
tho steamer and go abroad, whero wu
may visit the olio to monarchies and
have a high old time.
Thu sight of the Godduss of Liborty
standing ibero in Nuw York Harbor
night and day, bathing lier feet in tho
rippling sua, will bo a good thing. It
wdl bu tirst-ruto. lt may abo bu pro
ductive of good in a direction that
many have not thought of. As sho
stands there day after ?tay bathing her
feet in tho broad Atlantic, perhaps
some moss-grown Mormon moving to
ward thu far West, a couliriuod victim
of tho matrimonial habit, may lix the
bright picture iu his so-called mind,
and remembering how, on his arrival
in Now York, he daw Liberty bathing
her feel with impunity, he may bo led
tn aftor years to try it on himself.

Do you know bartlett's? It is the
homeliest, quain tost, coziest placo in

bank of Karamu: river, between tho
Uppor Saranac and boned bake. It
was thou the only dwelling within a

boar woro in thu majority. At night
ono could sometimes hear the scream
of tho panther or the howling of
wolvos. .Hut now the wilderness has
begun to woar tho traeos of a conven

a little-if not as the roso, at loast us
tho gilly-tlowor. Fiolds havo boen
cleared, gardons plantod; half a dozen
log cabins havo boon scattered along
the river; and tho old houso, having
grown slowly and somewhat irregular
ly for twenty years, has lately como
out in a modest coat of paint and a

Tho Saranac river, 'breaking from its

fresh importation, was holding forth
in a saloon much frequented by bia
countrymen, yostcrday afternoon. Ro
pontod mugs of alo had loosened his
tongue, and his opinion of San Fran
cisco aristocracy Mowed fast and free.
"I liko tho hold gont woll enough,"
snid the coachman, "but tho ladies hot
tho family don't suit mo a bit. They
'uvon't tho right style babout them,
you know; and they aro too fond hoi
showing my haeccnt hoff when they
visit people who 'aven't an English
coachman. They 'Thomas1 me all thc
timo. 'Tis 'Thomas, do you know
whore airs.-lives?' When I
reply, they say, 'Thomas is awfully
English; lived with a marquis before
wo took him.' Then I know tho hold
man is hafraid of mo when I wail on
tho table, foar he'll do something
crooked with his knifo. They all seem
sort of awk'ard when I'm in tho 'ouso,
because, I suppose, they don't feel
quite, suro they aro doing tho right
tiling. Tho hold man likes to talk to
mo about tho great pooplo at'onie, and
1 givo liim a now dook or marquis ovory

he talked of raising my wages at the
bond of thc month, and I'caril him tell
ing tho missus that 'Thomas was a real
treasure' "
"How do you get on with tho other
servants, Thomas?" asked an acquaint
ance.
"Tho 'ouso maid is pretty, silo's
Hirish, and she bolicvos hall bof us
should be blowed up. They may talk
of their baristocraey 'ero, but there
hain't any baristocraey. My peoplo is

man is friendly, but bo's wulgar, too.
He comes into tho stable with a bottle
of whisky and basks mo 'ow tho llen

greedy for hovervthing Hinglish. I'm
not BUl'prisod those Now York girls run

This interesting disquisition was cut
short by tho entrance of the young
master himself, who greeted the coach
man with warmth, and in a lordly
manner invited bim lo drink. - San
