Hanford quietly and amid the laugh that followed or. Hanford began his Story. A 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 Between 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 Bis own valuation. A of course i was mainly interested in the excavations around Naua beaks and Hafla professed to have been born in the very Shadow of the Nana Pyra mods so i was confident that our expedition would be accomplished without mishap As he was doubtless Well acquainted with the Vicinity. A these pyramids Are a half Days 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 behind and rocking Over the Sandy Road past the waterworks and out toward the arabian desert. A a a master a remarked Hafla to me a few hours later As we ate luncheon beside a Little Spring of water a 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 a a a Hafla a i said sternly a we go to investigate to observe to discover not to sleep. We shall sleep when we return to Cairo. Remove the luncheon and let us be on our a 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 he ours. Instead of the cheerful conversation which had lightened the Burden of the Sandy journey we maintained an unbroken silence for Hafla was sulking openly and 1 was out of patience with him and beginning to have serious doubts As to his integrity. A a a you said it was a half Days journey a i exclaimed at last a it is now s of clock and we Are still in the a a a i came the Long Way growled Hafla moodily. A a a Why did you do that i demanded thoroughly angry. A Hafla shrugged his shoulders. �?~1 have forgotten the Short Way. Besides. is rough and infested with robbers a a a How soon shall we arrive at Naua a a a a in an hour master but i will question this a approaching us across the Sun bathed Sand was a string of some ten or a dozen ragged looking camels whose riders were the dirtiest and most rascally looking lot i d seen in Many a Day. A a a done to let them know we Are alone. i warned him. They look like a Hafla rolled one of his queer Light coloured eyes toward me As he nodded reassuringly. held a few minutes Low toned conversation with the leaders of the caravan and then dismiss Long them with a rough spoken word he turned and watched them As they disappeared behind us through the Golden Sunset Haze. A a a when the first Star has risen we shall see the Pyramid of Naua master said Hafla Good Quot Nat redly and from he chattered on with High spirits until i had almost forgotten his morose fit. A 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 Camel 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 i did not mention the matter to Hafla and afterwards i was glad that i did i not. J a fall at once a dark shape loomed ont of the Twilight and just above it 1 saw the dim Luster of the first Star. A the Pyramid a i exclaimed. Ask your neighbor about his ability Quot a have i spoken the truth master?1 to properly fit Yon j de Tui jmj pm our a a yes Hana. 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. 1 Hare letters of introduction and 1 would spend the night in Bis a there was an instant a hesitation and then Hafla s voice came soft and velvety through the Semi darkness. A a a the Camp of the Learned men lies a half mile beyond the Pyramid. It is on a High slope far above the band fleas a a a never mind. A some of them must be Here now. There is a Light within the Pyramid a a afterwards i Learned that the Light was a Small lantern carried up the outside of the edifice to guide us on the Way a a a let us get Oft Here and see if professor Georges is a a a that is a great idea of the master a 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. Quot As i entered the passageway i put my hands to my lips 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 a around a Comer of the passageway a Long Brown Arm shot out and Extin Gul bed the swinging lantern that had lured me there. Then a score of lean j fingers attacked me in the darkness and i was aware that i was Belg in robbed of watch and Money and whatever 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. A 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. A i groped my Way into the open air and beneath the stars found my Camel. Hafla 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 no to 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. A 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. A the laughed and assured me that 1 had never been within Twenty Miles of Nauam that Hafla 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. guide was Hafla the Albino he asked so optically. Quot i nodded assent. A a a then it is a wonder that your Throat was not Cut a 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 recall. �?o1 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 Hafla 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. A a a master a he whined cringing by a my Camel ran away with me. And x returned too late to be of assistance to you. Shall we Start again for the Pyramid Al Naua in the morning a a a you May Start i said rudely and then it was that mrs. Hanford saw me administer a Well deserved kick to Hafla the Albino. That is the end of the a ooh. James. I would have died of fright if i had known you were in such danger Quot cried his wife. A not much danger in such a pack of reassured her husband easily. The ladies of the party separated from the group and chatted together. The four men grew closer. A is that the reason you had a sudden attack of rheumatism in your left Arm Hanford Quot asked Arthur Clayton. A what was it a knife a grinned or. Hanford ruefully. Saved by his boots. In after year.

Sitting around a country depot wait Long for a Midnight train will do a lot to dissipate that Temps Fugit Atchison Globe. who is not ready today will be pm to . The Way a writer dodged death in the French revolution in the French revolution a Feuillet Onist named Sehl Oberndorf who possessed considerable ability As a writer by heartily espousing the cause of the Gironde its in All that emanated from his pen rendered himself obnoxious to Robespierre and at the dictation of that fierce Leader was incarcerated. When the death cart one morning came to the prison for its Load of those that were that Day to be butchered Sehl Oberndorf s name was on the list of the condemned. The Jailer informed him that such was the Case and the writer dressed himself for his last ride very nonchalantly and he a was extremely fastidious As to his personal appearance with great care. His boots however he could not and. Here there everywhere assisted by his Jailer he looked for them to no Avail. A i am quite willing to be executed a said he to the Jailer after their fruitless search a but really i should be ashamed to go to the Guillotine without my boots. Nor do 1 wish to detain this execution party Quot he added smiling grimly. A will it make any difference if my execution is deferred until tomorrow by that time i shall probably succeed in finding my a a i done to know that it will matter particularly when you Are guillotined a responded the functionary Between whom and Sehl Oberndorf there had existed a sort of Friendship. A suppose we Call it tomorrow then Quot a fall and the Jailer allowed Sehl Oberndorf to remain not unwillingly As owing to his Universal go Quot a 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 Sehl 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 himself having suddenly been displaced by reason of suspected disloyalty to the revolutionists and Schrahe Mdoris name was not called that morning. Nor was it called the next morning nor the morning after that nor indeed Ever again. It was believed by All outside of his friends in the jail that he had perished on the morning originally set for him. remained in prison until the Sway of Robespierre had ended. Then he regained his Liberty As did the rest of those prisoners whose Heads had not fallen beneath the bloodstained a. A new York press. St. Andrews bottle Dungeon. St. Andrews is perhaps the most distinctive of the old Castle towns of Scotland. It was built Early in the thirteenth Century and it was Here that Bishop Kennedy showed James ii. How to break the Power of his Nobles by taking a bundle of arrows separating them and swapping them one by one. In Stewart Dicks a a the pageant of the Forth the author says under the sea Tower in the heart of the Rock where it juts into the sea is a Gre some Dungeon known As the bottle Dungeon a so called from its shape in the floor of the lower room in the Tow or is a Bole five feet in diameter. Down it goes for nearly twelve feet. The neck of the bottle then widens out to form a chamber nearly Twenty four feet a1 breadth. There is no Light no ventilation no exit of any kind but the neck of the bottle. A prisoner there had no More Chance of escape than a crab has in a a hindu dinner party. A hindu ladies dinner begins at 12 of clock and lasts two hours. But the guests begin to assemble some time before the dinner for the simple reason that they have to go into the Garden and choose their own fruit and vegetables. Meat by the Way is forbidden. The chief dish at a dinner party is composed of Rice and Maize. The guests sit on the floor in two rows facing one another and eat with their fingers. The most esteemed widow lady present bands round the dishes and this service is considered a great Honor. Coconut milk and various kinds of sherbet Are drunk. When the meal is Over the ladies take a Small portion of Betel nut wrapped in a a pan leaves. Pan is a Green Leaf something like Laurel and is prepared in no fewer than eighty different ways. Each of those ways is supposed to give a different emotion to the eater. His parting request. Augustus Caesar was a Wise ruler and when he died it was said of him that a the bad found Rome Brick and left it he liberally patronized men of letters and the a augustan age Quot is a phase applied to any Era distinguished for literature and the arts. On the approach of his death it is said Augustus called for a Mirror and arranged Bis hair. then asked those about him if be bad played Bis part Well. On their answering in the affirmative he said after the manner of the actors Quot then Farewell and the celtic affirmative. In the speech of so highly developed a people As the celts there is no equivalent to thus it happens that you shall never hear an Irish waiter pronounce the Shibboleth a Eye str Quot of his English confreres for he invariably expresses an affirmative by some such phrase As a i shall a it is. Blackwood a Magazine. The old and the new. The old fashioned Bride who was powered with a stack of bed quilts now has a daughter who is going to bring her husband a Truu Ful of Galveston news. Our big game. I Bret Harte a explanation that made the matter quite Clear. 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 add who insisted on confounding their experiences and predilections with his own. Since a wrote of Pioneer mining Camps in the enry 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 Gambler. 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 a your great american or. Harte conveniently misunderstood him. A so you say a great games Over Here a he inquired amiably. A in the United states now we Call it a big games a grizzlies catamounts Buffalo and Bighorn door to you know. But we done to Chase them with pokers. No no they re abundant but they done to often come into the houses really. Its usually necessary to go outside with a at another time he Learned that a certain noted hostess whose invitation to Dine he had just accepted had been questioning one of his intimates to learn if it were True that he was a reformed Gambler. A not declared or. Harte wearily. A Tell her i am beyond reformation. Tell her that i was my own Model for the Gambler Oakhurst and. That the scene of his suicide is pure companion. Freaks of dynamite. One that was Lucky for the Man Down in the mine Shaft. A not Long ago a said a Leadville mining Man a 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. A 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 diameter. 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 Beli Cord to Stop the bucket but it was too late. The Bell Cord could be reached Only from the lower part of the Shaft. When the Engineer saw Only one Man come through the Collar of the Shaft at the surface his face blanched. A a whereas Jim a he asked excitedly. A quickly the Miner related the Cir. Cum stances and exhibited Bis hand bloody from Contact with the Sharp Rock in an Effort to reach the Bell Cord before the bucket entered the timbering. Then 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 done to believe there is another Case on record where five missed As providentially As in this a musical rebuke. As to the possibility of humor in music the London Telegraph says a if composers and performers had More of the sense of humor music a Appeal would be immensely wider. The truth is that musical performers Are far too Apt to take themselves too the solemn attitude of some musicians toward their Art was humorously rebuked recently by a Well known new York pianist who remarked to his gifted wife also a pianist at the conclusion of a performance by the latter a my dear done to look so doleful music Isnit a funeral music is a joke a you judge a Man not by what he promises to do but by what he has done that is the Only True test.
