THE SILVER STATE.
VOL. XVI. WINNEMUCCA, NEVADA, TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 1880. NO. CO. THK TtriCU TI Kk » During my perambulations in Smyrna I v,’as caught by the ingenuous face of a handsome Turk, who sat smoking on his stall, with his legs coiled under him, with ar. air of supreme complacency. He was a vender of the perfumes for which “Araby ike Blest’’ is famous. It was pleasant to stand and sniff the mingled aromas that surrounded the sjK)t. Jars of various essences and boxes of spiceil shrubs emitted a fra grance ravishing to the nose. As we ■examined his sweet-scented wares, I glanced occasionally at their owner, whose countenance, continued serwpo; and impassive. He ■ might have passed for a statue, eo perfect was the repose of his lo'.tures and attitude. Thermo was not the least indication of solici tude as to our intentions. We would buy if the Prophet so ordained. We purchased some attar of roses and other extracts, which were no cheaper than in Pans, but far more genuine. After the parcels were made up, I felt in clined to hate some chat with our mar chatd. Though sedate and reticent, as all Turks are, yet there was a frank ness m bis visage that w as encouraging; and so I bade my interpreter to ask him if he could be tempted to leave Smyrna and go to my country, where his rare perfumes would yield him ten times the profit be could hope for here. At the end of a few years he might re turn to the East a rich man. A look of undisguised astonishment overspread his face. “What! he exclaimed, ‘ leave the land of the Prophet to go among infi dels ! Abandon my home, to accumu late money 1 do not want ? I have enough to eat snd drink, and my pipe to smoke. 1 have a wife, and, please Allah, 1 hope someday to have another. What mure have I to desire? I am satisfied.” Thu sample of Turkish philosophy was not a little staggering. “But tell him,” l continued to the interpreter, “that in iny country he would 1-c under the protection of the law, where no sadi could either im prison or bowstring him. He would be instructed, would have hooks and ' papers to read, and might learn what was passing in the world; also, in that Sappy country the padisba is chosen by the people to govern them, and he could take a share in his election.” This enticing description of the ad vantages of a superior civilization was all thrown away on the incredulous, if not contemptuous, Turk. “What are these things to me?” he answered. “Would they make me happier? Could I eat or drink more in your country than in mine? Could 1 -rni ki more or low more? My fathers have always lived in this holy land. Why should 1 leave it until Allah calls me away, when I shall go to Mahomet’s paradise, where hoiins innumerable await tee? Ho yon think 1 would give up this homo to go to your uiikuown world ? ” I felt that rt was idle to hold out in tellectual delights or jKilitical privi leges ae baits to this true son of the t’ropbet, whose i.iitli in the Koran was implicit—far more so than that of most < la istians in the Bible. As 1 was mov ing off, J said with a smile, he little knew what he lost by not listening to my suggestions. Suddenly a thought struck him, for, taking the amber mouthpiece from his lips, he inquired if women were cheaper in my country than in Turkey, I told him that no one in my Isnd was allowed to have more than one, and then only with her consent. This settled the business. A scowl of unutterable scorn darkened his tine physiognomy, and replacing his pipe, he raised his eyes to Heaven, evi dently in a spirit of thankfulness to Allah that it had not been his cruel fate to be born in such a benighted land.— W'Jcojf 'n liOtuiiixceacrj*, Rosiuii linked lii'iins And Brown 1 tread, at all times, at Dock Lunoh Stand. fD-tf Anybody mad because we ace issuing a jrtdce list'at 1*?V A (Vsl Eh?
