Hanford it is your turn to spin a Yard remarked professor Ursyle one evening As the steamship Neptune with a party of tourists was a Irving the african coast do James urged mrs. Hanford As the seven tourists Drew their chairs into close proximity. I know positively that you had an adventure with that Albin Dragoman you hired at an Albino Dragoman laughed a thur Clayton. Be gods what a sight was your Man egyptian arabian Mussulman or Christian he was not exactly an Albino he was very fair and Light haired was he not James questioned mrs. Hanford referring to her husband who was listening with a smile of amusement Light headed he corrected. Hafla had an egyptian Mother an arabian father. The Mother was a Christian and the father a Mohammedan Hafla was an out and out Heathen and is now for All i that is not All of your Story pro tested miss Emeline Gray. That Sav ors too much of tabloid fit in t much of a Story admitted or. Hanford reluctantly. Indeed 1 Don t understand How Harriet got the idea there was a Story connected with i never suspected there was until 1 saw you kicking him Down the Steps of the hotel retorted mrs. Hanford quietly and amid the laugh that followed or. Hanford began his Story. Well Hafla the Heathen came to me the first Day we arrived in Cairo and after assuring me that he was the most efficient interpreter and guide be tween the red sea and the Atlantic Ocean he produced innumerable tattered bits of paper that he swore were recommendations from former patrons and As i did not care to examine them i was compelled to take him at his own valuation. Of course i was mainly interested in the excavations around Naua beaks and Hafia professed to have been born in the very Shadow of the Nana pyramids so i was confident that our expedition would be accomplished with out mishap As he was doubtless Well acquainted with the Vicinity. These pyramids Are a half Day s journey to the East of Cairo and on the morning of our Start my Dragoman appeared with two camels and soon we were leaving the City streets be Hind and rocking Over the Sandy Road past the waterworks and out toward the arabian desert. " master remarked Hafia to me a few hours later As we ate luncheon beside a Little Spring of water i have been thinking that there is a pretty Pyramid much nearer than that of Naua where there Are no excavations being made and where All is peace and quietness instead of dirt and disorder one could sleep refreshingly there " Hafia i said sternly we go to investigate to observe to discover not to sleep. We shall sleep when we re turn to Cairo. Remove the luncheon and let us be on our Way with ill Grace my Albino Dragoman tossed the remains of our meal into the Sand and brought my Camel to its Knees before me. We Rode on in silence for several hours. Instead of the cheerful conversation which had Light ened the Burden of the Sandy journey we maintained an unbroken silence for Hafia was sulking openly and i was out of patience with him and be ginning to have serious doubts As to his integrity. You said it was a half Day s Jour Ney i exclaimed at last. It is now 5 o clock and we Are still in the desert " i came the Long Way master growled Hafia moodily. " Why did you do that i demanded thoroughly angry. Hafia shrugged his shoulders. 1 have forgotten the Short Way. Besides it is rough and infested with robbers " How soon shall we arrive at Nana " in an hour master but i will ques tion this caravan approaching us across the sunbathe Sand was a string of some ten or a dozen ragged looking camels whose riders were the dirtiest and most Ras Cally looking lot i d seen in Many a Day. " Don t let them know we Are alone. Hafia i warned him. They look like robbers Hafia rolled one of his queer Light coloured eyes toward me As he nodded reassuringly. held a few minutes Low toned conversation with the Lead ers of the caravan and then dismiss ing them with a rough spoken word he turned and watched them As disappeared behind us through the Golden Sunset Haze. When the first Star has risen we shall see the Pyramid of Nana master said Hafia Good Nat redly and from that moment he chattered on with High spirits until i had almost forgot Tea Bis morose fit. Just after the Sun had set and while the Swift Twilight was falling blotting out Distant Oasis or nearby Sand Dune i thought i heard the soft padding of Carnei hoofs passing us on the Sand and i strained my eyes to the left and saw As through a thick Gray veil a shadowy caravan of men and camels passing us. In an instant they were out of sight ahead of us and i believed the vision to have been an hallucination of sight and hearing so i did not mention the matter to Hafia and afterwards i was glad that i did not All at once a dark shape loomed oat of the Twilight and just above it 1 saw the dim Luster of the first Star.

Is there not u Camp nearby where the expedition in charge of the excavations have their quarters i would speak with the great Man in charge. I have letters of introduction and i would spend the night in his Camp there was an instant s hesitation and then Hafla s voice came soft and velvety through the Semi darkness. " the Camp of the Learned men lies a half mile beyond the Pyramid. It is on a High slope far above the band fleas " never mind. A some of them must be Here now. There is a Light within the Pyramid afterwards i Learned that the Light was a Small lantern carried up the out Side of the edifice to guide us on the Way. " let us get off Here and see if pro Fessor Georges is inside " that is a great idea of the master assented Hafla eagerly and he slipped from his Camel and commanded mine to Kneel. In another instant 1 was on the ground and stumbling Down into an excavation at the end of which was an Oblong of Light it was the open doorway to a passage leading into the Pyramid. As i entered the passageway i put my hands to my has and uttered our old College yell in order to apprise Georges of my arrival. What happened afterwards seems As dreamlike As the shadowy caravan i saw in the desert. Around a Corner of the passageway a Long Brown Arm shot out and extinguished the swinging lantern that had lured me there. Then a score of lean fingers attacked me in the darkness and i was aware that i was robbed of watch and Money and what Ever else of value i possessed. But Quick As lightning my hand had snatched at the revolver at my hip and i managed to free my right Arm., and fire it among my enemies. The Flash and the echoing report threw the robbers into panic. The wounded one yelled terrible curses upon me unto the twentieth generation until distance silenced his voice. I groped my Way into the open air and beneath the stars found my Camel. Hafia and his beast had disappeared. I wonder if any of you Ever tried to mount a Camel when he was standing humped before you and you did t know the password that would make him drop on his calloused Knees. Well i tried every Way i could think of to make that Camel Kneel. I prayed to him and i swore in seven languages but he stood there in the Moonlight with sulky protruding lower lip and obstinate poise. Once i essayed to climb up by the gorgeous trappings of leather that served As harness but he turned and snapped at me viciously. I was quite in despair when suddenly out of the Shadow of the Pyramid there came a single word hoarsely whispered but quite audible a word of command that brought the Camel to his Knees in a Trice. I scrambled upon his Back turned him about As he arose to his height and away we went Over the track we had come. I trusted entirely to the Camel to take me Back to Cairo and we reached there just As Day was dawning. My Camel chose his own Way. And we entered the City by Way of the Citadel and 1 inquired of a Soldier concerning the Pyramid of Naua and i told him of my adventure of the previous night. laughed and assured me that 1 had never been within Twenty Miles of Naua that Hafia had deliberately led me to a Small Tomb which was a rendezvous for a gang of robbers and he said that the shadowy caravan was without doubt the villainous band who had robbed me. Your guide was Hafia the Albino he asked so optically. "1 nodded assent. " then it is a wonder that your Throat was not Cut he said dryly and turned his Back. I placed the matter in the hands of the police and toward evening they returned my watch but the Money had disappeared beyond re Call. I was preparing for bed when a servant informed me that a Dragoman awaited my coming in the veranda of the hotel. 1 suspected it was Hafia and went Down. There he was his cloak drawn closely about his face quite disguising his features and complexion but i caught the gleam of his Pale wicked Eye. " master he whined cringing by my Camel ran away with me and i re turned too late to be of assistance to you. Shall we Start again for the Pyra mid Al Naua in the morning " you May Start now i said rudely and then it was that mrs. Hanfor saw me administer a Well deserved kick to Hafia the Albino. That is the end of the of. James i would have died of fright if i had known you were in such danger cried his wife. Not much danger in such a pack of cowards reassured her husband easily. The ladies of the party separated from the group and chatted together. The four men grew closer.

When the death cart one morning came to the prison for its Load of those that were that Day to be Butch ered sch Oberndorf s name was on the list of the condemned. The Jailer in formed him that such was the Case and the writer dressed himself for his last ride very nonchalantly and he was extremely fastidious As to his personal appearance with great care. His boots however he could not find. Here there everywhere assisted by his Jailer he looked for them to no Avail. I am quite Willingto be executed said he to the Jailer after their fruit less search but really i should be ashamed to go to the Guillotine with out my boots.

Sup pose we Call it tomorrow then All and the Jailer allowed sch Oberndorf to remain not unwillingly As owing to his Universal Good humor he was especially liked by .1 the jail attendants. The following morning when the cart Drew up before the prison door for its Batch of victims sch Oberndorf dressed in his Best including the boots that had been found stood waiting the summons of the Jailer to take his place therein. Meantime however a new Jailer had taken the place of the old one the latter him self having suddenly been displaced by reason of suspected disloyalty to the revolutionists and sch Oberndorf s name was not called that morning. Nor was it called the next morning nor the morning after that nor in deed Ever again.

Augustus Caesar was a Wise ruler and when he died it was said of him that he had found Rome Brick and left it he liberally patronized men of letters and the augustan age is a phrase applied to any Era distinguished for literature and the arts.

On their answering in the affirmative he said after the manner of the actors then Farewell and applaud the celtic affirmative.

Bret Harte the whimsical and Brilliant chronicler of roaring Camp and poker Flat used to become weary to exasperation at the foolish admirers who could not separate him from his characters and who insisted on con founding their experiences and predilections with his own. Since h6 wrote of Pioneer mining Camps in the ear a Days of the Gold fever his characters were often heroic Only in part. Indeed they were quite As often rogues As heroes. As he obviously could not be identified with the rougher types among them the favorite notion seemed to be that he was. Or had been a gentleman Gam Bler. With that idea in mind a Yonng englishman in London once tried hard to get him to describe and explain poker which he referred to As your great american or. Harte conveniently misunderstood him. So you say great game Over Here he inquired amiably. In the United states now we Call it big game grizzlies catamounts Buffalo and Bighorn Don t you know. But we Don t Chase them with pokers.

One that was Lucky for the Man Down in the mine Shaft. Not Long ago said a Leadville min ing Man there occurred one of those freaks of dynamite in one of the deep shafts of the Carbonate Camp that might not happen again in a thousand years. Two men at the Bottom of a Shaft had put in five four and one half foot holes which were to be exploded with dynamite cartridges 1% inches in diam Eter. As is usual in such cases they gave the customary signals to the hoisting Engineer and after lighting the fuse stepped on the Bale of the bucket and started upward. When about ten feet from the Bottom one of the men had an epileptic fit and toppled out. His partner tried to reach the Bell Cord to Stop the bucket but it was too late. The Bell Cord could be reached Only from the lower part of the Shoft. When the Engineer saw Only one Man come through the Collar of the Shaft at the surface his face blanched. " where s Jim ? he asked excitedly. Quickly the Miner related the Cir. Cum stances and exhibited his hand bloody from Contact with the Sharp Rock in an Effort to reach the Bell Cord before the bucket entered the Timber ing. Their hearts beating wildly listened in suspense for the five explosions of dynamite that would tear their unfortunate Comrade to pieces. They heard five faint reports one after the other. They were simply the detonating Caps of the cartridges. Every one of the charges of dynamite had missed fire failed to explode. I have known of one or even three shots out of five missing but i Don t believe there is another Case on record where five missed As providentially As in this Case."?Exchange a musical rebuke.
