For some time after his arrival lie is the victim o£ his servants, of the tradesmen, and, indeed, of the natives in general. As Dr. Willis sn.ys, lie buys experience more or loss dearly, lint hav> ing bought it, he is able to correct his mistakes, one by one. Gradually hi; takes root ill the country. He "hits it off" with the Persians. Tin: solitary makes friends — real friends, not mero acquaintances—and strange to say, these friends are often from the priesthood, the, most fanatical among the Moslems. And these. Ori ental friends always confess that what originally attracted them to their new ally is the strange fact that an En-lishman doesn't lie. J11 Persia, the great hot-bed of lies and intrigue, a man who does not lie isi indeed a phenomenon. Very soon thu Englishman is invited to dinners, to marriage feasts, even to picnics; for he is a lion and the Leo-hunter exists, even in Persia. Little by little tho influence of "the mail who tells the truth" begins to spread; disputes are referred to him; for is he not tho only judge in the place who does not hunger for u bribe? An unpaid arbitrator, he "embodies the law" in many a knotty dispute. There are no fees in his court, and the reference being 1 by mutual consent and purely unofficial, there can bo no appeal.—Youth's Companion. A Itlir Fcftt Kor Small ItoyH.
