THE CALIPH'S DAUGHTER "Why Her Father Allowed Her to "Wed an Englishman. The Caliph of Allamagdalla, Muzaben Uozier, sat cross-legged on a great heap ol cushions, clad in a long- silken robe that was drawn closely about his thin •form. A tall hookah stood on the floor near his feet, and in his hand he held its heavily jeweled mouthpiece, which lie raised now and then to his lips, and sent a curling wreath of smoke ceil- ingward. He was an interesting man to look at, •was the Caliph of Allamagdalla. His face was wrinkled and of ashy paleness, his brow narrow and drawn together over his eyes into a heavy frown, •whose severity was heightened by a long-,' drooping white mustache, which fell rigidly over his robe. A pair of dark eyes, deep set under his heavy eyebrows, glittered unpleasantly as he sat there, unmoved and unmoving, save as he carried the stem of his pipe to his mouth and back again. Despite, however, his seeming calm, the Caliph was in trouble. Something had occurred when he was eating his morning',meal which had aroused his •fears and set him thinking in a channel BO unpleasant that, if possible, his face was a shade paler than usual, and the little eyes moved restlessly to and fro. He had noticed, or thought he noticed, a peculiar taste in one of the dishes which his servants had set before him, and, with the instinct of one who is in perpetual dread of assassination, he called the head servant to him. "Here, thou dog and son of a dog," he *aid, pushing the dish toward the slave, "eat that." Now in a land where the people feel for their heads the first thing on waking in the morning, thus assuring themselves that that uncertain member has not been lopped off during the night; where murder is of such common occurrence and so much of a pastime for .those in high authority, an order that is In any way unusual is likely to be considered as a death warrant. The unfortunate slave knew that to disobey meant certain death,' but he also knew that it was very probable that the food was poisoned, as the Caliph suspected. At any rate, he .preferred not to risk the poison. He threw himself down before the Caliph and ground his forehead in the dust. "Thou art the most mighty ruler, with dominion like unto the dominion of the sun," he said. "Thy majesty is most exalted of all under Allah. Allah is great I can not eat." The last words were spoken almost in a gasp, for the Caliph's brow was growing darker with the awful rage of one •who is unaccustomed to aught but absolute obedience. He pushed the dish fairly under the slave's nose. "Eat, dog," he .cried. The slave rose, trembling in every limb, and his face growing ghastly trader his swarthy skin. He stepped back .» pace or two and hung his head on his breast. "I can not," he said, simply and sullenly. Of course there was but one thing that could happen now. They carried the poor slave away to meet bis doom, but for once this did not soothe the Caliph's troubled mind, and, as he sat there on his cushions, thinking, thinking, thinking, he realized almost for the first time that it was in every way likely-that his people all hated him and iwould be rejoiced at his downfall. He could think of not one reason why they ought to love him and his long, bony fingers tightened rigidly about the jew- elled mouthpiece of his hookah, as he thought of the danger in which he hourly lived. ' _ • Two things appeared to him certain. He must increase his body guard and! he most have, a taster for his food. The [former was easy to accomplish, but he knew that it would take a large reward \ J, and unusual persuasion to obtain the V latter.' .-:..... V To obtain this end, however, he was determined, and, having once determined . it, he sent for the head of his household. . The latter came, salaaming profoundly. ! The ..Caliph told the man what he wanted,' gently hinting, at the Kama [time, at the' penalty which was involved inlairare, viz., that his body shbuld be torn by. vultures or given to the jackals 'and wild pigs of the forest, and that after death his spirit should enter into the dog, who was indeed 'his father, etc. The man bowed himself low. ; . . "Thou art the Light of the Barthf 0, Caliph!. It is done," he said, and went out salaaming. „ Tom falters, a young English chem- Ist with a taste for out-of-the-way places and solitary travel, awoke with a sense of pain Wiroughout his whole [body, and put his hand to his head. (Where -was he—what was the matter? He! saw two tall brick walls on either (side of him and a narrow strip of blue sky above his head. He slowly picked himself up and looked around. He had been asleep i» an alley, with his head resting on the cobble stones. So much was evident, but how did he get there? For a long time. he stood quite still with his hand on his forehead, trying to collect'his thoughts, until at last a fiood of memory came-over his be- mnddled brain, and a look of dismay succeeded that of vacant bewilderment •which" had but now shone on his, broad and open face. • He went through his pockets'hurriedly, and then again deliberately. "About as I thought," he muttered. •"Robbed and kicked out, and now the TCry devil's to pay. Not a cent to my name nor a friend, aad scarcely any knowledge of the infernal lingo. What's to do, any how?" With . characteristic decision, however, Lei began to brush his clpthes as best he could and rub the numbness ou of his limbs. Then he turned and clown the alley nnd entered the scarcely wider street at its end. He was walking along- slowly and limlessly, wondering .what he had bc.t- do, when he happened to look up and catch , sight &f a large placard fas- ened on the wall of a public building •hich he was passing. He stopped and spelled it out labori- rasly. His knowledge of Arabic was not unlimited. What he read was, in ubstance, as follows: 'His Exulted and Majestic Highness, tlio 3altpb. 02 Allarnngdalla, protector ol the poor md light of the universo, -whoso dominion w&3 ike unto the dominion of the sun, and ivhoae I jower was the greatest of all under Allah, who j a groat, etc., etc., having decided to Increase aia household, was in need of n, servant to act ns taster of the monarch's food. Tne said ervant would receive a large salary, and in addition would have the pri=ileg? of looking on he divine 'ace of the Caliph, more beautiful than tho moon, etc., etc." Such was the extremity to' which the aliph's chief servant had been forced to accomplish that wnich he had so read- ly told his master was done. Tom Walters stood for some time looking at the proclamation. Finally 10 turned away. 'What a lark!" he said. "And really I've got to do something until I can hear Irom London, and through these wretched mails, too." Ziliah, daughter of the Caliph of AUamagdaUa, was walking one sultry evening in her little garden accompanied by a single attendant, a girl of about her own age. The Caliph's daug-h- ;er, as befitting the offspring of one so divinely endowed as_her father, was tall and straight and walked with a queenly etateliness that became her well. She was quite young, though a woman grown, with large dark eyes set under a noble brow, over which her dark hair curled caressingly. She was walking slowly up and down in the twilight, now and then stooping to pluck a lower, or pausing to speak a word- to ier attendant, when suddenly there was a sound as of somebody coming _ over the wall and the maid pointed, with a Little scream, to the farther end of the garden. The Caliph's daughter looked in the direction of her attendant's gesture and beheld a tall young man, dressed in the uniform of her father's court, leisurely picking a flower from one of the many beds that skirted the wall. As she saw him he looked up and caught her glance. He straightened up and came toward her in a manner that fitted in queerly with his Oriental dress. "Excuse me, ladies," he said, trying to summon all he knew of Arabic to his aid. "I saw the flowers from the window above, and I could not ^resist the temptation to drop down and get over. I did not know you were in the garden, I am sorry to have disturbed you." Zillah's face had at first assumed an expression of,extreme hauteur, but as the strang-er blundered through his speech, smiling confidently all the time, her expression changed to one of bewilderment, and her band trembled a little, for she began, strangely enough, to be frightened for her queer visitor. "Hushl" she said, hurriedly; "some one may see you." Tom did not stir. He began to realize that he was talking to a very pretty girl, and such an occurrence was so unusual to him at present that he did not wish to break it off so suddenly. "May I have the flower?" he said, to gain time. She made no answer to his question, but put her hand on his arm command- 'Arc you mad?" she said. "If you were seen here—" Tom squared his big shoulders and showed no inclination to go. Eeally ehe was a very handsome girl. "Are you his Majesty's daughter?" he asked. By this time the attendant had recovered from the shock that the young man's appearance had given her, and w.as trying to draw her mistress away. The latter yielded to her guidance and was about to .turn from him, when Tom interposer 1 hurriedly. "I say now," he said, rapidly, "don't go. I'll.go myself Staying here is going, to drive you away, but you see I belong .to the old duffer—I beg your pardon,-to the household of the Light of the Universe in there, and I thought, being one of you, I might take a turn in here. I'm awfully sorry I disturbed yon,'.' and with a quick turn he regained the'wall and swung himself over. ; ! Ziliah looked after him until his long misfitting Oriental robes had followed Trim over the wall, and then she turned away with'a queer look on her pretty face r . That night she dreamed of a tall young man who came down to her in a winged chariot from the skies, and who tried to. carry her away with him. Just as, he y j£ drawing her into his strange car she awoke with a start and 3 little scream. .. A -few; weeks later another scene was enacted in the little garden. "Ziliah," said Tom, standing with both her hands in his and looking down into her deep, dark eyes, "I don't believe I can stand this much longer. It isn't natural, why can't I. just ask the Caliph to let me have you and end it there. He can't more than refuse, and if he does—well —I've got money enough and I'll just carry you off like young Lochinvar. I beg your pardon—you. don't know about Lochuivar probably, but .it's all the same, will you?" "You do not know what you are saying," said ZUlah. "Can't you understand, he would have you sewed up in a saqkand throTvn.into the. bay before night if you were to do such a thing. It isb-opeiess, and you had better leave me." .... Tom let go her hands. "I don't believe you would care," he said. .--..-, Zillah's eyes.filled with tears and she stood very.still. Toin saw it, and in a moment he'had his big arms arounc her. ....'."There," he said, ."I didn't mean that; .And! won't-leave you; .no, not if I have to die for it, which, by the way, I am noticing to do. I'll inst co to the Canpn and "ceil him how if is, and he can't help himself. Or, I'll tell you, let us both go. you and me, together. • I'm quite sure that would fetch him." All this time Ziliah said never a word. Her head was buried in Tom's big chest under the folds of Ids baggy robe. Suddenly they heard the sound of approaching footsteps. Both looked in the direction from which the noise came and saw three men coming toward them. Ziliah gave a scream and threw her arms despairingly about her lover's neck, but the latter stepped quickly forward, still with one arm around her protcctingly, and put himself almost in iont of her. There was a moment's straggle and then Tom was led away captive, leaving Ziliah behind, weeping bitterly, and the very picture of despair. "Never mind," be called hack, reassuringly. ",lust wait till these duffers get. through with me and I'll come back again." He forgot, however, in his excitement to speak in Arabic, and so even what little consolation the poor girl might have found in his words was quite lost. An hour later Tom Walters was broug-ht before the Caliph. He looked a little"" sheepish in his big English way, but quite undaunted. He bowed deeply before the great man after the attendant had told his story. "You see,"he said, "er—the fact is, your daughter and I are fond of each other and—" The frown on the Caliph's brow deepened into a scowl, and Toin realized that something was going very wrong. . He made another bow and began again: "Oh,.mighty Caliph," he said, trying- to look awed and solemn; "power is in thy right hand and in thy word is great wisdom. Thou art the protector of the poor and the stronghold of the innocent." • . Here he stopped to take breath, and then went on, though he wondered somewhat how, he was going to get around to the point in this way. ."Thy daughter's eyes are like two stars of the heavens, and in my heart they have wrought much ruin. She is as the pearl of the sea, and as the diamond so is her beauty. She is —" •How long he could have kept this up I do-not-know, for he was warming to his work; but at this point the. Caliph made a gesture to his men and they advanced toward- the unfortunate stranger. ' "Wait," said Tom, stepping back quickly, "I have yet a word to say to the Caliph," "Thou thinkest," he said, turning again to that individual and speaking rapidly,now, for he.saw that he must do something, quickly, "thou thinkest that I am but a servant, and am at thy mercy, but lo! I am the offspring of the sun, and the moon is my mother, and verily, if thy. slaves but lay a hand on me I will burn them and thee with my father's fire." As he spoke he took up a bowl that had been placed near by and made a pass or two over it with his hands. Immediately a bright flame burst forth and shot up .toward the ceiling. "See, here is a witness of my power," he said; "shall I show thee more?" He made another pass in the vacant o-ir and the room blazed for a moment with a terrible flame. The attendants fell on their faces in horror and the Caliph grew pale to his very lips. He made a brave attempt to control himself, however. "Peace," he said, and despite his efforts his voice trembled a little. "It pleases me to be merciful. What wouldst thou have me to do?" Tom folded his arms across his bosom and spoke slowly as became the advantage he had just gained. "Give me thy daughter," he demanded. • The Caliph frowned, and Tom, seeing this, hastened to add to the strength of his position. "Wouldst thou have me draw down the lightning of .Heaven to consume thee and thy people, O Caliph," he said. "Verily I will do so, and thy land shall be as the desert and this city but moldering ruins," and he made another pass over the bowl, bringing out once more a blinding sheet of flame. By this time the attendants set up a most unearthly howl, and crawling 1 to the feet of the Caliph begged him to do any thing to rid the city-of this terrible person.- The Caliph, too, was trembling with fear, for he was an arrant coward. "Give me thy daughter," commanded Tom again. • . .'. The Caliph arose and tried to steady his voice-as. he. surrendered, clinging still to that odd arrogance of expression so'characteristic of his race. "My son,-' he said, "though thou art unworthy, and though thy power as compared to the might of my dominion, is as a drop in the ocean or a single sand in the desert, yet does it please me to: give her to thee. It is well. The peace of Allah be with you." A few days after Ziliah looked up at her husband with a kind of awe and said: "And is it true that thou art a mighty sorcerer, with power over the lightning and the fire of Heaven?" "No,. Ziliah," said .Tom. "When you have learned -English and a few other things that you will need, I will try to teach you a little, chemistry, and then you can be the daughter, of the.sun and the sister of the moon, and most anything like that if you like."—J.

The Democratic Leader, of Bingiiam- ton, remarks: The Democratic tidal wove ID November has been a source of prollt to the Republicans In one respect— It has enabled them to account tor the failure of the tin factories to materialize as the effect of the McKinley law. Yes, indeed; and there are other industries beside the tin plate factories. whose establishment was projected before November 4, which will not materialize. Millions of American capital, which, prior to the mil amity of November, were about to be invested in new enterprises in various lines of American production and afford employment to thousands of American wage-workers, lie. idle in the vaults of the banks and trust companies. The Democratic tidal wave has left nothing 1 but wreck and ruin in its path. If profit there be in calamity, we hope and trust that before the Presidential election pf'lSU:! shall roll round the people will have thoroughly learned the lesson of last month. In the commercial and industrial history of recent years we have never turned. a. sharper corner than on November 4, 1890. Prior to that time confidence in the future was marked and widespread. Since then a panicky feeling- has held possession of the business world. Not only have new enterprises, which were projected, vanished into thin air, but on every side the commercial, industrial and financial classes are shortening sail and preparing 1 for a storm. Business failures have ' increased, until, despite the heavy falling off in the first ten months of the year, they have risen above the record of the corresponding weeks" of .1889. The falling off in the clearances of tho banks and the earnings of the railroads tell the same story of sudden curtail menfc4n all departments of trade. Democratic success has indeed proved to be a tidal wave in more senses than one; it has swept away prosperity. Democratic editors and politicians may slur over the turn in the tide of affairs or rack their brains for other causes than Democratic success to which they may attribute the revulsion. But the people know that conservative and timid as capital is. it can not be tempted into new enterprises when free trade lunatics like Roger Q. Mills.' who control the policy of the Democratic party, go up and down the land preaching absolute free trade and an income tax.' The Democratic tidal wave has given rise to the fear that its force may not be expended before 1S02 and that on it the Democracy may again ride into pr.vwer. ' It is perfectly natural that responsible manufacturers and capitalists should hesitate to establish new industries or enlarge old ones. Nor is it surprising that, when Western and Southero Democrats, like Mills, declare their devotion to the free silver as well as the free trade doctrine, responsible "banners and capitalists should view with alarm the depreciation of our currency to the silver standard and hasten to protect themselves by hoarding gold. Democratic success is responsible for the disastrous monetary stringency Which has prevailed. Democratic advocacy of free trade and free silver proves conclusively that the Democracy is unfit to govern the country. It is composed of the thoughtless, the vicious, and the irresponsible elements in our population and its policy is controlled and shaped by men who (ire not interested in the commercial and industrial prosperity and independence of the United States.— Albany Journal. ___ PAPA CATFISH. He Makes Himself Useful in Bearing HI» Offspring. "It is generally supposed that fishes take no care whatever pf their young, leaving them entirely to the attention of nature," says Prof. Theodore Gill, of Washington. "But the fact is very much otherwise with many species. The most remarkable point, however', regarding certain kinds of finny- creatures in their -parental relations is that males do the care taking, and not the, females, ^ r ery interesting discoveries have been recently made with regard to the habits of nest-building fishes, the cat-fish among others. "If you will go out any time during the month of August in this latitude, you will see in the streams and ponds big- catfish of the common sort, each one accompanied by a swarm of small fry.. In each case the old one is a male arid-he is engaged in taking care of- his offspring.- If an intruder comes near he will dash at him and drive him away. It has .been known for a long while that catfishes had this way of guarding their young, but only lately has it been ascertained that it was the papa catfish which did the care taking. Some time back there was a pair of catfish in one of the aquaria at the building of the Fish Commission. At spawning time eggs were laid and one of the parents kept watch over them, not permitting the' other to come near. The young- were duly hatched and thrived, being cared for in this, way until they ; were big enough to look out for themselves. Then the fish which .had stood guard tvas taken out and dissected, the result toeing- that.it was. found to he the male. "In their native ponds and brooks you will find large broods of young catfish as big as three-fourths of an inch in length,' remaining together in • flocks, each .flock accompanied by the male. Sometim.es the latter will swim slowly along; in the center of the: flock and: at other times alongside. , In laying their eggs the parent catfishes, select a spot where the water is quiet,-.if possible protected by aquatic plants, and there they make, a nest, perhaps eight inches by, six, inclosing the spawn. ; The. nest has a-spft. outer envelope, and over it the .male hovers, forcing fresh water through the mass by rapid vibrations of its : fins,-until after about a week they. are hatched. , "Sometimes the male catfish tates well satisfied ilo s BEST L.AUNDRYSoAPii)tl)e World dj.use it in aJl my v .

These eggs are found in the mouths of the males, which do -this to protect them. After the eggs are laid the papa catfish takes them into his mouth and keeps them there until they are air hatched, when they go out and take care of themselves. "But this method is not confined to the catfishes. There are found in Africa and South Africa a species which resembles the sunfish of our own streams. These 'cichlids,' as, they are called, are also plentiful in Texas and Palestine. They are often found with their cheeks fairly bulging with young. In the sea of Galilee the cichlids are so numerous that the miraculous catch of the time when St. Peter fished there might be repeated anj- &!}•, it being the manner of these fishes to move about on the top of the water in solid masses, covering many square vards • and making a noise like that of rain pouring."—Chicago Evening 1 Journal. xii« (ioal Keached.
