FAYORED WITH FORTUNE.
On the great Arabfcu desert, from three different points of the compass three travelers BlowJy approached one another. Nearer and nearer they camo, until presently they join ed company. At first there vras a moment of suspicion, and all were on their guard ; one laid his hand on an old razor, concealed in his girdle; another fumbled in his tur ban for a shoemaker's awl ; and the third and last, shook his sleeve until the pair of 6 hears hidden there was in his hand. All drew back the mantles that had protected their heads from the glaring- sun and drifting sand, but had no scouer recognized one nnothcr than they set up a great shout of joy, and throwing themselves into each oth er's arms, (as well as their infirmi ties would allow them,) embraced. All, the barber, had but one eye; Bali, the tailor, had but one hand ; Kali, the cobbler, wanted a foot. "Happy is the day when we meet again 1" cried the one-eyed; "pray do you come this side of me that I may better pee you ; why, Bali, you are less a hand ; and you, Kali, less a font. I myself want an eye, and pray let me" tell you how 1 lost it. So let us be seated, and rest awhile, and I will relate to you all concern ing my misfortune." The three then seated themselves, and Ali, the one-eyed barber, com menced. "You know that I was bred a barber, and no one worked more diligently or shaved better in Bag dad than I did. One unlucky day a great lord came to me and wanted his head shaved. I soaped his pate nicely, sharpened my best razor, and went to work. One-half was done ; I caught bold of his nose, as our art dictates, to get at the other side, when, as ill-luck would have it, the brush full of lather went into his eye; he roared with pain, and get ting into a rage, gave me such a drubbing that, when it was over, one eye was gone. My customers all lett me; no one thought a oue eyed man could shave, and I was mined. Now, a beggar, I am going to Mecca to try if by prayer 1 can not assuage Mahommed, and beg for good luck once again in my life." "I think your case a bad one," said Bali, the one-handed tailor, "now listen to mine. Ono day there came into my shop a one-eyed man, and ordered a vest. He must have been a great personage, for the garment I was to make was of the most cost ly kind, such as arc worn at the palace. I worked diligently, and when it was finished took it to his house. IIo wanted to try it on ; he put one arm nicely in, and had got into tho other sleeve as far as the elbow, when he yelled with pain. Rascal,' he cried, 'villain of a tailor, you have left a needle in the sleeve, and it has pierced my arm; take this, you dog,' and ho begou to beat me with a big stick, and when it was over my hand was gone. I could no longer sew ; my trade all left me; and now, a poor wretch, I am traveling to the holy City, to implore the great prophet to "take away his curse from mo." "It 13 my turn and though your cases are hard, just listen to mine," said Kali, the shoemaker. "This is the way in which I lost mv foot : In 51Z 'y suppers or yellow kur dish leather were in great repute. One day there came to me a great lord and ordered a pair of my yel low slippers. I made them niyself, and carried them to his house. He put one on it fitted perfectly; he tried on the other, but it would not go on. Perceiving for the first time that he had but one eye and one arm and imagining that "their loss had made him rather awkward, I told him to give his foot a stamp; he did 60, aud howled with pain. 'Dog of a cobbler. he cried, 'you have left a nail iu your slipper!" and without raoro ado he caught me up in his arm and threw me out of the win dow. Some passers-by picked me up, and when I got well one foot was gone. My business went to the dogs; my creditors seized all I had; and now, without a copper, I am hobbling over the desert to the tomb of the great lawgiver, to beseech him to grant me fortune." When Kali had finished all three were silent, and for full half au hour held down their heads. At last simultancousl', they all burst out with "Oh, where can throe such unlucky fellows be found?" and in such a loud tone of voice that a fourth traveler, who had silently drawn ncar,hcard it, and exclaimed : "Who says they are unlucky fel lows? For if so, look at me." The three jumped up surprised, for they had been so absorbed as not to havo heard him approach. Ali, Bali, and Kali looked up aud saw a man in rags, with but one eye, one arm and one leg. "You unlucky!" exclaimed the new comer. "Do you compare your situation with miuc? I, who am wanting iu so many things! What do you say to me, the perfect addi tion of all your woes? And with it all, I consider myself the luckiest fellow in tho world I" And here, with the aid of a long crutch, ho tripped about merrily on the sand. "Aud how do you manage to be so happy?" they asked. "I will tell you," said the traveler. "I owe all my good luck to three excellent meu a barber, a tailor, aud a shoemaker. Tho first took my eye, the second my arm, and the last my leg. Could I but find them, I would shower my blessings on them." "I had the pleasure of spoiling your eye," said Ali, with a wink. "Allow me to recommend myself to you as the person who deprived you of an arm." "If I have made you happy by causing the loss of your leg, I am Kali, the shoemaker, at your service" said Kali, and he made a scrape. "And have I tho good fortune to meet you all?" said the traveler. "Then allow mc to embrace you." And with this, as well as his in firmities would allow, he hugged them all three, and then addressed them as follows : "Now, listen. My name is Ben Bonzaura. I was about to be mar ried. The day before the nuptial ceremony, I went to you, Ali, to be shaved. "You put your brush iu ray eye, and I lost it. When I present ed myself afterward to the lady, she would have nothing to do with me, aud married some one else. She turned out to be such a wicked creature, so unfaithful, that her hus band, covered with shame, killed himself. It would ceitainly have been my fate, if not for the good fortune that I had in going to you to get shaved. "Sometime afterward tho Sultan sent for me. In order to make my self pleasant to tho commander of the faithful, I bethought mc I must have a new vest. You, Bali, made it; a fortunate needle went into my arm I lost it and could not go. The Sultan had planned a secret expedi tion to carry on war with a neigh boring country, and I was to have been in it. They were all taken prisoners by the enemy, and arc uow toiling as slaves, under harsh masters. Bali, had it not been for yon, what would have been my fatcV" "But to you, Kali, my gratitude knows no bounds. Know that a friend gave a grand feast, there was to be merry-mukiug and dancing, and I was an invited guest. Think ing my old shoes rather worn, I ordered from you a pair of yellow slippers, and surely some good for tune took me to you. There was a nail in one of them, and I threw vou out of the window. I ccald not attend the feast, and lucky was it that I did not, for they dauced about so that the floor fell in and the roof on the top of them, and every sou! wa6 killed. Had I gona there, it would have been an end of mc. In those days I was harsh aud hasty; but the loss of my limbs has taught me a lesson from the want of them I can no longer indulge in those burs to of passion, aud am now as docile and quiet as a Iamb. Thank ful to the great prophet for the kind ness he has sliowu me, and in order to do penance for the misery I have caused to others, I determined on a pilgrimage to Mecca, having sworn not to tako off these rags, nor to enjoy any of the luxuries of this life, before- fiuding the three preservers of my honor, liberty, and life. Though clad so poorly, I have much wealth, more than enough for us all. Will vou forgive and sharo with me?" "We havo nothing to forgive," they all answered, astonished. "For carelessness and want of skill, we throw ourselves on your mercy." Here Ali, Kali, Bali, and Bcn-Rou-zaum turned toward the East, and bowed nine times toward the tomb of the great prophet, in order to 6how their thanks. Just then they descried a cloud of dust in the dis tance, and soon a baud of mounted robbers tore over the sands toward them. Their swift horses soon bore them near the four travelers, for they were eager for plunder; but seeing four such miserable objects, all in tatters, and all so maimed, and not worth a sequin us slaves, with a curse at thein for the trouble they had given, and a laugh at them for their sorry appearance, they pres ently disappeared in the opposite direction. When they were out of sight, Rouzaum lifting up his hand to Heaven, cried out, "Another mira cle! blessed be Allah! How for tune favors us! If it had not been for our wretched appearance, we should have been robbed and mur dered. Now, my friends, that the robbers arc gone, let us journey on toward Mecca." Without auy accident they arriv ed at Mecca, kissed tho holy stone and, their devotions finished return ed without harm to Bagdad. Rouzaum purchased a large llOUSC, with DCUuiiiiit t;niucii8, tiiiii here lodged Ali, Bali, and Kali. They passed their days in the hap piest way iu the world, aud had al ways a word of comfort and a gift of charity for the unfortunate. Ioiver of a, Nwcct Voice. There is no power of love so hard to get and keep as a kind voice. A kind hand is deaf and dumb. It may be rough iu llcsh and blood, yet do the work of a soft heart,. aud do it with a solt touch. But there is no one thing that love so much needs as a sweet voice to tell what it means and feels and it is hard to get and keep in the right tone. One must i-tart in youth, aud be on the watch night and day, at work and at play, to get and keep a voice that shall speak at all times the thoughts of a kind heart. But this is the time when a sharp voice is most apt to be got. You often hear boys aud girls say words at play with a quick, sharp tone, as if it were the snap of a wljip. Whcu one of them gels vexed ou will hear a voice that sounds as if it were made up of a snarl, a whine aud a bark. Such a voice often speaks worse than the heart feels. It shows more ill-will in the tone than in the words. It is often iu mirth that one gets a voice or a tone that is sharp, and sticks to him through life, aud stirs up ill will aud grief, and falls like a drop of gall on the 6wcet joys of home. Such as these get a sharp home voice, for use, and keep their best voice for those they meet elsewhere, just as they would keep their best cake and pies for guests, and all the sour food for their own board. I would say to all boys aud girls, "Use your best voice at home. Watch it day by day, as a pearl of great price, for it will be worth more to you in days to come than the best pearl in the sea. A kind voice is a joy liken lark's song to a hearth and home. It is to the heart what light is to the eye. It is a light that sings as well as shines. Train it to sweet tones now, and it will keep tuue through life." ' A young M. D. who graduated from a Philadelphia medical college last spring claims to have discovered an infallible cure for yellow fever. He says painting the" patient red will keep the yellow iu tho fever from showing. "Ah," said the fly, as it crawled around the bottle, "I have passed throueh the hatching age, the creep ing age, tho flying age, and now I am in the mucilage, and " there it stuck.

When a young man has learned to consume cigarettes in an artistic manner by ejecting the smoke thro' his nostrils, life is no longer a bar ren ideality, bnt a3 real as a bar of soap. Breakfast Tabic.
