Needless to say what choice 1 made nor how deeply grateful 1 was to Abon Kuram for this fresh sign of his graciousness. Said Achmet carried me off with as proud a heart as if I were the greatest man in the land and treated me with a tenderness that mere greatness could never have evoked. Indeed UI hud been his own son risen from the dead he could not have been more lavish of the caressing attentions in word and act that the tremulous affection of an old man delights in or evinced a livelier regret at the parting that was near. For the most part of three happy days I was with him, listening to wondrous tales of the diabolical prowess of the man on the black horse from Tabal, or discussing the prospects of the campaign with him, or drinking in tho wise and varied discourse of iny host himself as Wo sat inhaling fragrant essences iu the shade of his garden palms. How far off all that is now, and how strangely tinged with mystic hues! Said Achmet has long since gone to his account- Ana on his grave, with shining eyes, The Syrian stars look down, but the memory of his benign refuge re- matus with me «s n beautiful dream of a iluy spent on an azure summer isle after escape from devastating tempests. The preparations fit the castle went on with more hustle than speed, for it appeared to be the determined object of every man to get 'into his fellow's way and thwart him in bis work. The scene was one of constaut confusion and uproar. Night and day the hubbub weufc ou, waxing ever louder and shriller, till it seemed like pandemonium come again, but at length order begau to rise out of chaos, and oven the novice mind could see that the preparations were really going on. Men came hurrying in from outlying districts, horses uud camels were got ready, swords, spears and mutuhlocks were furbished up. ammunition was laid out, water skins were filled, provisions were loaded on snapping, gruntiug pack camels—a hundred pounds to every beast—and all the while the soldiers badgered, shouted, jested and blasphemed in a way that might have moved the envy of any Christian army in the world. On the morning of tho fourth day a messenger came to me breathless, saying that Abou Kuram WHS seated iu the audience court and wished to see me at once. I hurried off, Said Achmet accompanying, In some excitement, fearing that linrs and iti- trlguers had been at their loathsome work and had succeeded in turning him against me. But I was quickly reassured, for when I entered his presence with palpitating heart and hesitating step he beckoned me to him with a irrucious smile, biule a cushion be placed for me, and proceeded to in- quiro iu bis most affable tones, and as I thought, with covert glances at Abdallah, who sat close by, about my health and welfare. "Time, perchance, hnugeth heavy upon thee," he said. "But thou shalt soon have sport enough. Ere the sun go down again we shall be on the march to meet Yumen Yuscl and bis helper satan. We shall see how thou carifst sheathe thy sword in flesh. "Ms a merry game, and methinks there will be plenty of! it going." And then in the hearing of all he repeated that I was to ride by his bridle in the character of physician and personal attendant, and that 1 was to bo mounted on a favorite mure from his own stable. Ab- dnllah sat looking on the ground with a clouded brow and compressed lips, but dared not speak a word. The crowd gaped and beamed on mo as one basking in tuo favors of an all powerful prince, though douliUuss pu'Mled by the change of senti- ment'that conferred on me my distinctions. [An Arab am confer no move signal honor than to present u guest with'a horse of high pedigree. A wife from his harem is a small thing in comparison.] "Thou wilt find the little Fatlma of the purest Kohloui breed," he wont on, nd- dressing me, "in shupo and spirit un equaled outsidu my royal stables.

Bo waved his hand to signify tho audience was at an end, and rising passed into tho interior of the uastle. "Verily tho great Abou Kurain hatli shown thee favor beyond example," re marked Bald Achmet as we returned for n little to his homo, "I think tliou host thy fair face to thank, The truth of tiatnru will overturn many lies.

UmUlud.iy my thujas. ed ly my a,mjuaa«; "tttent when 'i'abal, seeing What was going oti, bolted forward, shouting frantically as though he, too, were magically bereft o his wits. Having no taste to aflvanci among the flying spears, I was meditating flight when Said Achtnet touched rne teas surldgly on the arm. "It is the Arzah" [a watdance perform ed before going to meet an enemy], he said •with a smile. "They are getting up the spirit of war. Methiuks it will be bad foi the enemy." Whatever might be the Issue, there Was no denying the Imposing ferocity of tha wild wardance. The men Were artned with a variety o queer and uncouth weapons—ancien matchlocks, pistols, spears, swords, javelins and daggers, which flew and flashed pro miscuously as if a company of bedlamite! had somehow possessed themselves of hal; a dozen armories. As soon as we were seen approaching t band of horsemen dashed to meet us, whirl ing their swords in the air so furiously that in spite ot Said Achmet's assurance thai the display waa mere sport, I had an un easy suspicion that they were bont on cut ting us down by way of preliminary prao tlce. But jnst at thecrucial moment, when their lancen were within a few feet o£ us they wheeled with inconceivable quickness and dexterity and dashed back the way they came, yelling savagely. Two or three times this maneuver was repeated, each time with a madder dash and a quicker turning, then drawing up suddenly they faced us, saluting with a rigid precision that was in striking contrast to the wild movements they had just gone through. They had scarcely turned to get back to their original positions when a great shoul went up.and Abou Kuratn, superbly mounted on a gay charger, catne curveting an<] prancing on the esplanade with drawn sword. Hie appearance was the signal for another mad outbreak of the entire body of troops, horse and foot. Yelling and flourishing and throwing their weapons. they circled about him rather as if he were a captive for -whose blood they thirsted than a commander whom they wished to honor, while he rode quietly through the maze, sitting his high spirited horse like one born to the saddle. By and by the tumult died down, and Abou Kuram, still rldingvabout, noticed Said Achmet and myself. With two or three bounds 04 his leaping steed he waa beside us. "Here thou art," he said, smiling down upon me. "It pleaseth me to BOB thee punctually, according to thy word. Hast said farewell to the good Said Achmet, for the time has come to mount and be off?" "I,am ready, my lord," I answered. "It is well, for the shadows grow long and the sun is hastening to his bed. Bring the little Fiitiniu," he said, addressing a slave. "She waiteth for her master." Accordingly a minute later iny little mare, fully caparisoned, was led ambling into the parade ground. Addressing her, the slave made a pretty speech to the effect that she was going forth to great honor with the fair facial stranger; that she waa to obey his will, and that she would have her reward iu a care that would preserve her from all ill treatment, and that she would have dates to cat and sweet water to drink when the perils of the desert were past. The intelligent brute whinnied, as if to say she perfectly understood him. Then the bMdle reiu was formally delivered to me, and she took a step toward me, as if acquiescing in tbcchantfeof proprietorship, I stroked her gently as a token of good will, rubbing her face and speaking encoumgiug words iu her ear after the Arab fashion. Having thus made an agreement, I fastened iny green bag carefully to the saddle, embraced Said Achmet and mounted. "Have my words exaggerated her excellence?" asked Abou Kuraui eagerly, coming close to me. "Nay," I replied. "My lord haa iiot spoken half the truth." "And thou wilt see she is as good as she is beautiful," he said, u prophecy that was fulfilled to the uttermost, as this history will show. Many who have never set eyes on him have been eloquent iu the praise of the Arab horse. Poet and painter and romancer have vied in delineating his matchless excellences, physical and mental. But it is not until you have eaten and slept and fought with hiui iu thu desert, on the battlefield, beside the black tent iu the green pastures, until you have been his intimate friend and comrade and learned to appreciate his coolue«8 and couraue, his power of endurance and gentleness and intelligence and loyalty that you can know his many high qualities. Yet perhaps only u uoet could describe my Fatlma, for in her were surely combined the perfection of equine vlrtne and beauty. Never anything more lovely, more dainty and proud moved on four logs. She was neither big uor heavy, but her muscles were ot whalebone and her bones of the finest tempered steel. Her limbs indeed were like wrought metal in the Ormuosu, cleanness and grace of them, ami th» trunk In exquUltcness ot curve and symmetry ot purls wan such as a sculptor may have dreamed of, but has never mulched In bronio or marble, Tha sum total of that animate loveliness—the silken buy coat, the godly sloping shoulder*, ihu buoyancy of the curved back, the fiery pride of the arched neck, thu full round Launches, thr rich sweup of uiiuiu tuul lull, thu sharp, dulutlly pulsed earn, (he !>i'oat| forehuud utul the Hue umiulu, nud, al...v« all, thu spirit of tho aluix full orbed tyi—• M beyond the power of any urtlst stivu uu- turu lit'rsulf, nor doe* unturu tuku mtcli pain* anywhere out of Arabia.

As 1 did not'care to enter tin lists in such n contest, 1 contented tnysel with a piece of doughy bread, some date and i» cup of coffre. When the meal was over, a characteristic ceremony was enacted. A calf only a fev days old was led into the open space am killed with a sword, its blood being made to flow inward toward the castle. The an ilnnl's life extinct, every man who was to accompany the expedition stepped solemn ly over the body, which was then burned so that no dog orother unc'ean beast mlgU eat any pnrt of the flesh. This is supposet to bring good fortune, and an Arab arm; could not be induced to take the field with out first observing the sacrificial rite." 1 _ calf safely cremated, the men immediate!] mounted their camels and horses ant wheeled into line. Theu Abou Kuram, tug to the front, delivered a short oration ou the glory of war and the bravery of his soldiers, which evoked uproarious applause from the flattered. Ere it died away the kettledrums were rattling and the cymbals clashing the ad vance, and umid vociferous cries of "Ooc save Abou Kuratn; God give the victory to Abou Kuram," the strangely assortec troops swung slowly into line. The huge serpentine procession wound tediously through the narrow, tortuous streets, In which two camelmen found it hard to march abreast, but its tardy coiliugs were enlivened by the cnperiugs and shoutings of the mob who ran in front of usandhung on our heels and, to their own immediate peril, squeezed and pressed oa both sides of us. On the outskirts of tho towu the people stopped, finding the pace on the open ground beyond their capacity in running, so they stood there and yelled themselves hoarse with blessings and good wishes, which we acknowledged with resounding cheers. As wo deployed into open order for greater ease in marching I caught a lost glimpse of Said Achmet, who stood apart, waving with his hands as if to signify he had a double interest in the receding column. Both Tabal and myself waved our adieu iu return, and from me there went with it a heartfelt benediction.. : ~?v,i [CONTINUED.] TAX BACHELORS. The Matrimonial Market Would B Boomed and Commerce UeneiHed. We commend the suggestion recentlj offered by a Baltimore woman to the effect that a tax should be levied on bachelors. There is something in this proposition that commends itself to the judicial mind. It does not, for instance attack a social class. It makes no discrimination between tho rich and the poor. The idea is to tax every bachelor •who cannot show that he is unable to marry because of having to support dependent relatives to the extent of $10 per annum. The estimate is that there are 0,000,000 of marriageable bachelors in the TJnitod States, and that at least 4,000,000 of these have no valid excuse for their selfish nud useless condition. A tax of $10 per capita, therefore, would yield §40,000,000. It could be collected without much expense. It would do no great harm, and it would have the merit of providing its own remedy fot those who felt unwilling to pay. If it accomplished nothing else, it would communicate a powerful boom to the inatri mouial market, and so, for every $10 that the government lost, put,at least i|100 into general circulation. It might, to be sure, divert some of those thin but noisy little rills that run to ice cream, soda •water, steamed oysters, theater tickets and philoponaa, but it would turn loose whole torrents Into the coffers of butcher, the baker, the grocer, the apothecary, the family physician and the wot nurse. And though under such n dispensation the American youth might put on the yoke of Hymen rather than be taxed as a renegade to that rosy deity, and though government might thus be compelled to seek elsewhere for a revenue, the revolution would so fill tho laud with uew activity; so load the air with the perfume of paregoric, and so throng the parks and sidewalks with nurtsomuide that the whole nation would feel the impulse and all mankind bo umdo tho happier aud better through its influence. Either tho treasurer 'would get a revenue or society be purified and population stimulated. The real cause of the commercial depression is want of confidence, the hoarding of money, stagnation In trade and dearth of investment, but with 4,000,000 of young bridea moving into new quarters, setting up independent establishments and preparing for therespoiisibili- ies and tho consequences of wedlock, ;he wheels of industry would once moru in to hum and thu pulses of business go to beating with fresh force tuid vigor, —Washington Post.

OMAHA, April 17.—Smooth shaven ant sunburned, but with bright eyes anc firm steps, General Kelly's troupa gal lantly murched out of Council Bluffs al 8 o'clock Monday afternoon. At the head of the procession rode the genera' on a spirited sorrel steed, loaned him for the occasion by a sympathizing citizen. Along the street the general was given an ovation, but several times was stopped by citizens, who demanded a speech and the privilege of shaking his hand. By his sido rode Sheriff Hazen, who went more aa a pilot than a peace officer. Dehiurl, with regular platoon formation, blankets rolled and bundles carried knapsack fashion, trudged tho army with steps as firm as the muddy road would pennit, Early in the morning SherlS Hazen called on General Kolly and told him his 24 bom's of rest had ended, and that he should move on by I o'clock, Kelly promised to start by that time, or ebon after. At 1 o'clock the army relinquished the train of Union Pacific box cars it had occupied since leaving Ogden and prepared for the inarch. In the meantime Kelly and Hazen had been looking up a route. The general expressed a wish to cross the eastern boundary of Iowa AS near due east of Council Bluffs as possible. This made Davenport the choice of crossing on the Mississippi river, and elected the Rock Island as the route to be followed. There was no probability of a train on the Northwestern being captured. Park's Mill, the first station east on the Bock Island, five miles out, was chosen as the camping place for the night. General Kelly "hoped" that a train of empty bos cars would pass through during the night. It would then be "captured." At 2:HO tho bugle sounded "fall in," and in half an hour the army was under way. S. H. Finney, who loaned General Kelly his horse, also supplied two big trucks on which the provender aad other hnpedimentla of the army was loaded, and as the cornet, which does duty as bnglo and band, snug out "John Brown's Body" tho departure was taken. Tho men wore in excellent spirits. Not a sick man was with them. All tho sick had been transferred to the hospitals. About 150 joined the army Sunday and Monday. Twenty-four hours of rest had sufficed to revive tho drooping and they were off to Washington with better courage than over. Several who deserted here and at Council Bluffs have been locked up. Those taken in Omaha had broken the strictest rule of Kelly's code—got drunk.. During tho stay of the army in this vicinity there was no drinking iu camp and absolutely no disorder. Many people went to the camp during the day and contributed cash aud clothing to the commissary department. Kelly left with provision enough to last two or three daj-s, and in possession of about $400 in money. Will Travel la Stylo. CINCINNATI, O., April 17.—Mr. JohnO.
