As she ceased from speaking, her hu6band entered the room, followed by the nurse, who bore all things requsitc for the ministration oi the rabbi. With a heavy heart, he performed his duty ; and tho child was numbered among the faithful. But when, as usual, at the con clusion of the ceremony, the wine was hand ed round to be tasted by the child, the mother and the rabbi, he refused it, when it came to him, saying, “ Spare me, my lord, tor 1 have male a vow that I fast this day ; and I will eat not, neithfc. will I drink." “Beit as thou pleasest,” said the demon. “I will not that thou shouldest break thy vow. And he laughed aloud. So the poor rabbi was taken into a chamber, looking into a beau iful garden, where he passed the remainder of the night und day, weeping and prayiug to the Lord, that he would deliver hint from the city of demons. But when the twelfth hour came, and the sun was set, the prince of the Mazikin came again unto him and said, “ Eat now, I pray thee, for the day of thy vow is past.” And he set meat before him. “Pardon again thy servant, my Lord,” said Jochonan, “ in this thing. I have another vow,for this day also. I pray thee be not angry with thy servant.” “ I am not angry,” said the demon : “ be it as thou pleasest, I respect thy vow.” And he laughed louder than betore. So the rabbi 3at another day in his chamber by the garden, weeping and praying. And when the sun had gone behind the hills, the prince of the Mazikin again stood before him und said, “ Eat now, for thou must be an hungered. It was a sere vow of thine." And he offered him daintier meats. And Jochonan felt a strong desire to eat; but he prayed inwardly to the Lord, and the temptation passed, and he answered, “Excuse thy servant yet a third time my Lord, I eat not. I have renewed my vow." <• Be it so then,” said the other: “ arise, and follow me.” The demon took a torch in liis hand, and i led the rabbi through winding passages of his palace, to the door of a lofty chamber, which be opened w ith a key that he took from a niche in the wall. On entering tire room Jochonan saw that it was of solid silver floor, ceiling, walls, even to the inrcsholu and the door-posts. And the curious curved rooi unu 001 tiers oi the ceiling shone m me ioicIj-iigut, as it they were the fanciiul wuik of lrost. In the midst were heaps of silver money, piled up in immense urns oi the same metai, cveu ever 1 the brim. “ Thou hast clone me u serviceable act, rabbi/* said the cien.».n ; “ ..^c «»' e what thou pleasest * ay, v\*ic it l.*c u*h>u.. ‘•1 cannot, my lord." said Jochonan, “I was abjured by t hee to colie hither in the name of God ; and in that name 1 came, not for fee or tor reward.” •• Follow me, said the prim p of the Manikin j and Jochonan (ltd so, i..;.v . .. inner chamber. It was of geld, as the ot e* was of silver. Its golden roof was supj oittd by pillurs and pilasters of gold, resting upon a golden floor. I ne treasures of the king* ot it.e earth would not purchase one ot tne four-and-twenty vessels of golden coins, which were disposed in six rows along the loom. .No wonder lor they were filled by the constant labors of the demons of the mine. The heart of Jochonan was moved by avarice, when he saw them shining in yellow light, like the autumnal sun, us they reflected the beams of the torch, hut God enabled him to persevere. These are thine.” said the demon : “ one of the ve.'sels which thou beholdest would make thee riel test of the sons of men ; and I give thee them all.” hut Jochonan refused again ; and the prince ot the Mazikin opened the door ot a third chamber, which was called the Hall ot Diamonds. When the rabbi entered, he screamed aloud, and put his hands over his eyes ; for the lustre of the jewels dawled him, as if he had looked upon the noonday sun. In vases of agate were heaped diamonds beyond numeration, the smallest of which w as larger than a pigeon’s egg. On alabaster tables lay amethysts, topazes, rubies, beryls, and all other precious stones, wrought by the hands of skilful artists, beyond power of computation. The room was lighted by a carbuncle, which, from the end of the hall, poured its ever living light, brighter than the rays of noontide, but cooler than the gentle radiance of the dewy moon. This was a sore trial on the rabbi ; but he was strengthened from above, and he refused again. “ Thou knowest me, then, I perceive, O lochonan.son of Uen-David,” said the prince af the Mazikin. “ I am a demon, who would tempt thee to Jestruction. As thou hast withstood so far, I' tempt thee no more. Thou hast done a ser vice, though I value it not, as acceptable in the sight of her whose love is dearer to me than the light of life. Sad has been that love to thee, my ltebceca! Why should I do that which would make thy cureless grief more grievous ? You have yet another chamber to see,” said he to Jochonan, who had closed his eyes, and was praying fervently to the Lord, beating his breast. Par different from the other chambers, the one into which the rabbi was next introduced was a mean and paltry apartment, without furniture. On its filthy walls hung innumer able bunches of rusty keys, of all sixes, dis posed without order. Among them, to the astonishmeut of Jochonan, hung the keys of his own house, those which he had put to hide when he came on this miserable journey ; and he gazed upon them intently. “What dost thou see,” said the demon, “that makes thee look so eagerly ? Can he who has refused silver and gold and diamonds, be moved by a paltry bunch of rusty iron ?” “They are mine own, my lord,” said the rabbi; “them w ill I take, if they be offered me.” “Take them, then,” said the demon, put ting them into his hand : “thou 'mnyest de part. Hut, rabbi, open not thy house only, when thou returnest to Cairo, hut thy heart also. That thou didst not open it before, was that which gave me power over thee. It was well that thou didst one act of charity in coming with me without reward ; for it has been thy salvation. Be no more Rabbi Joch onan the miser.” The rabbi bowed to the ground, and blessed the Lord for his escape. “But how,” said he, "am I to return ? for I know not why.” “ Close thine eyes,” said the demon. He did so, and in the space of a moment, heard the voice of the prince of the Mazikin order ing him to open them again. And, behold, when he opened them, he stood in the centre of his ow n chamber, in his house at Cairo, with the keys in his hand. When he recovered from his surprise, and hud offered thanksgiving to God, he opened Ids house and his heart also. He gave alms to the poor ; he cheered the heart of the widow, and lightened the destitution of the orphan, llis hospitable board was open to the stranger, and his purse was at the service of all who needed to share it. His life w as a perpetual act of benevolence, and the blessings showered upon him by all were returned bountifully up on him by the hand of God. Hut people wonaereu »uu s«iu, . I the man who was called llubbi Jochonan the miser ? What hath made .the change : ’ and it became a saying in Cairo. When it came to the ears of the rabbi, he called his friends together, and he avowed his former love of gold, and the danger to which it had exposed him, relating all which has been above told, in the hall of the new palace that he built by the side of the river, on the left hand, as thou gocst down the course of the great stream.— And wise men, who were scribes, wrote it down from his mouth, for the memory of mankind, that they might profit thereby. And a venerable man, with a beard of snow, who had read it in these books, and at whose feet 1 sat, that I might learn the wisdom of the old time, told it to me. And I write it in the tongue of England, the merry and the free, on the tenth day of the month, ISisan, in the year, according to the lesser supptuation, five hundred ninety and seven, that thou may est learn good thereof; if not, the fault be up on thee. t3PA virtuous printer shudders not at the thoughts of a line.
