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

He says painting the" patient red

"Ah," said the fly, as it crawled

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

The great secret of avoiding dis
appointment is not to expect too
much. Despair follows immoderate
hope, as things fall hardest to the
ground that have been nearest
the sky.

The Western Hural comes to our

relating to tho farm, orchard and

joyed by the women folks aud the,
children, each having a department
full of interest to them. The Mural

of all interested in the cultivation of

There isn't much diflerence be
tween an old Roman soldier and a
cannibal who has just dined on a
nice young female missionary, for
the former was a gladiator, and the
latter is glad-he-ate-hcr, too.
"I sigh for one glance of your
rye," warbled an impecunious fellow
as he wandered into a leading saloon
a few days ago. He got but a glance,
his range of vision being suddenly
transferred to tho outer air.
