The captain escaped, but returned In a new diMgulse and again did Morglunu suve her master by stab bing bis enemy. So All Ilnba married her to his son and be lived joyously upon treasures from the cave. Many Other Fascinating 8teriea. Of the Magic Horse of ebony and Ivory, so fashioned that Its rider, by pressing divers buttons, could fly whither he willed. It bore a Persian prince to a great palace In a metropolis girt about with greenery. There ha looked Into the eyes of a princess and they were enraptured. It befell that they rode away on the Magic Horse, but before they were wed an evil man abducted the princess. The disconso late prluje wandered far and at last he found her whom he love and again they Journeyed through the air to his home, where they were married with exceeding pomp and lived happily. Of a poor fisherman who drew his net from the sea and found therein but brass bottle. He cut open the top and there streamed forth a cloud of smoke. It collected and, behold I It was a gcnle, so huge that his head was In the clouds. He would have killed his rescuer had not the wily fisherman insisted that never could he have come from the bottle. The silly genie squeezed himself Inside, whereupon the fisherman clapped on the top, nor would he remove It until the genie swore to serve him faithfully. This oath It was that led to the finding of the ensorcelled prince with legs turned to stone and the lake wherein swam flsh of four colors that had once been men. After marvelous happenings the prince was made as other men and the flsh were men and women. And the fisherman was so rewarded that he was the wealthiest man of his time. Of Prince Camaralzaman and th Princes Badoura, beautiful beyond compare, and of how each saw the other In sleep and was smitten with great love. But when they awakened they saw not one another for they had been brought together by genii who had carried Badoura out of China to the confines of Persia. Grief so af flicted both that they sickened and were Insane from sorrow. Then a mes senger from Badoura Journeyed far over land and sea until he found Cnmarnlzamnn and returned with him to China, where the lovers were wed ded. But while they were traveling tc Cnmaralznmau'e land he wandered away. Badoura dressed herself In his raiment and passed herself for a man. It befell that she found favor In the eyes of a king and was married to a princess. And Camnralzaman too came to thla land and knew not his wife, who heaped honors upon hlra. At Insl she revealed herself and was known ns a woman and Camaralzaman took nlso to wife the princess whom Badou ra had married and they were happy together. Of a merchant who, awaiting death at the hands of a cruel genie, was joined by three old men, one lending a gazelle, another two black hounds, and the third a mule. Now It Is related that the gazelle and the mule had been wicked wives transformed by- magic and likewise had the hounds been evil brothers. When the genie was told these stories of enchantment, he was so diverted that he spared the mer chant's life. About Harun-al-Rashld. And of many tales concerning the Caliph Harun-al-Rashld and his going disguised Into the lanes and bazaars of Bagdad, where he chanced upon strange people who told him strange stories of magic. Once he supped with three ladies of dazzling beauty and with him were a porter dazed with the magnlflcence he saw and three mendi cants, sons of kings, all blind In the left eye. Not knowing the Caliph they told of their fantastic adventures and sufferings and he rewarded them. And again he encountered a beggar who Im plored him to strike him, a youth who spurred cruelly a mare upon which he rode and a rope-maker who had risen suddenly from poverty to affluence. Their tales too did he hear and them too did he reward. Nor should Abn Hassan, the wag, be forgotten, whose trickery In pretending that he and hla vtfe were dead won so much gold and so many laughs from the Caliph. Ami of like Import is the mad tale of the humpback who seemed dead and of the talkative barber who restored him to life, of all those who had believed themselves murderers of the hump back and of the amazing tales that they related. So it came to pass that by the end of the thousand and one nlghta Shah rlar was so delighted In the cleverness ef Sheberasad that he wedded her again with regal pomp and they lived happllyver after.
