It was near noon, and tho king of

Aboul Casbcm. They wcro talking
about the approaching marriage.
"In thrco days more," uald Horam,
"I shall claim her for my bride."
"In truth, sire, It Ib ns you have
said," replied the minister. Ho spoke
not with tho enthusiasm of apprecia

his king. "I trust, slro, our hopes
may find their fruition. I pray that
Ulln may bear to thee a son, nnd thus

"This?" cried the monarch, taking

"This?' ho repeated, In n lower tone,
advancing another step, and gazlug
moro earnestly upon tiie uoiu, open,
youthful face. "This Ib not Julian."
"This Is he who hath commanded the
robber band," said Judah.
"Aye and I am ho whom you havo
called tho Scourge of Damascus," spoke
tho prisoner, standing proudly erect,
and gazing full Into tho fuce of the
king. "I am Julian, tho enemy of
Horam, nnd the avenger of wrongs
done years ago."
Tho monarch, as he gazed more In
tently upon those features, aud as tho
tones of that volco fell upon his ear,
seemed startled by tho memory of
some old dream. And Aboul Cnsscm
was not entirely uninterested. Tho old
minister gazed as fixedly and as earn
estly upon the faco of the young chief

too, seemed puzzled and perplexed.
"Who aro you?" asked Horam.
"I am Julian, tho Scourge."
"But what else?"
"You should know what else, moat
mighty king. I havo tried to make
myself fe't by you."
"But," urged Horam, taking no no

Ulln had lost none of her wondrous
beauty; but sho had become pale, and
the healthy flash of the eyo was gone.
Late In the evening uho sat In her
chamber, with her brow resting upon
her hand, and ever nnd anon a deep
sigh escaped her.
"My dear, good mistress," spoke Al
bia, gliding to the side of tho princess,
and resting her hand affectionately
upon her arm, 'T cannot bear to Bee
you suffer so. What Is It?"
"It Is nothing, Albla." Ulln spoke
without raising her head, and her
volco was low and Bad.
"Don't tell mo that," uiged the at
tendant. Sho got down upon her knees,
and gazed earnestly up Into Ulln's face.
"Oh, my dear lady, you are misera
ble and unhappy. Why will you not
pour out your sorrows to me? Perhaps
I can help you bear them. You know
I love you; you know that I will bo
faithful. Tell mo all, and I will suffer
with you If I can; and I will help you
If there is help to be had. As I live at
this moment, so, if it should appear to
me necessary, would I lny down my llfo
for your welfare. Will you not trust

Albla's Bhoulder, and burst into tears.
"Oh, Albla, you aro my friend you

and I cannot tell you how grateful I
"They why will you not lift tho veil
from your sorrow, nnd allow me to
feel still more for you?"
"I had almost resolved to tell you,
"Then make the resolution sure, and
admit me to your fulleBt confidence.".
The princess dried her eyes, and
finally lifted her head from her com
"Dear Albla, I know not how to com
mence. I am n child a poor, foolish
child as you will say when I have
told you all. You will say that I de
serve to suffer, and that punishment
should be mine."
"Nay, my lady," responded the bond
mnlden; "you must not commence In
that way. Tell me first all the cause
of your sorrow; and leavo It for mo to
base my own judgment Come trust
me, and let me give you all my sym
pathy." A few moments tho princess was si
lent, and then sho said, with a low
tremor In her voice:
"Dear Albla, when I said that I
would marry with the king I did not
think what I was doing. That strange
dream, so wonderfully repeated, led
my father to broach the subject, and I
did not refuse. When he talked of
my being queen, und of my giving
birth to a king to a king of Damascus,
I thought it might be my duty to offer
myself. I did not then know Horam.
But now I have learned new things,
r dread tho fate which I have courted.
I fear and loatho the man whose wife
I havo promised to become. When I
first promised to glvo myself to Horam
I felt that I could perform the duty
without tho sacrlflco of any real vlr
tuo or comfort of life. But, oh, how
changed It has all becomo. Not only
docs my wholo nature shrink from the
sacrifice, but It seems as though a fato
worso than death wero Involved in tho
ordeal. Last night I dreamed that Ho
.am was my husband, and that. he
' mnnnj n kill mn Ho illri nnt nlnn tf
drown me, as he did poor Helena; but
ho declared that I should be thrown
altvo Into a don of wild beasts. It
makes you shudder, Albla."
"Oh, how terrible!"
"And yet, my dear girl, I dreamed
that T felt a relief when I know that
oVm: --as coming, oven thouirh It wis
- 1 to como so dreadfully. Just think what
a sta of mind that must bo. Oh, it
Is horrible! Dear Albla, I know not'
what to do." (
"Have you told me nil?" whispered
the bondmalden, winding her artn
about her mistress' neck, and kissing'
her upon tho brow. J
"Havo I not told you enough?" re-!
turned Ulln, covering her face with hei
"Not If there Is moro to toll, dear
lady. You havo trusted me this far'
trust me with all. Yon have told me;
that you dread tho king; and I do noli
wonder nt this. You cannot have for-'
gotten that I spoke against the union
from the first. It seemed to me .nn-.
natural But, lady, there Is something!
"Nothing more which I dure to tell.
Albla. Nay do not ask me. I hnvcj
told you all that I can" tell. And now'
I ask you what can I do? Tho fatal
hour Is nigh at hand In the which I,
havo promised to give myself to the?

"Oh, Albln, this is dreadful! That

mind beforo; but can r lenvc my fa

must leave him. Think of it, lady."
"But whither can I flee?"

"And how camo you to know this,

Centuries of Imprisonment.
To bo sentenced to Imprisonment for
the term of one's natural llfo Is hard
enough, but to be consigned to a dun

years Is Indeed harrowing. Yet foreign
judges not Infrequently lmposo sen
tences of several centuries without It
being considered anything remarkable.
Not long ago an Italian adventurer
was convicted of 63 distinct forgeries.
Ho was sentenced In each case, with
tho result that he will bo freo in the
year 2089. A couplo of years ago a
young man was arrested In Vienna,
who, upon his own showing, should
have heeu sentenced to 2,500 years' Im

and riddled their bodies with bullets.
The mob resisted the earnest nppcals
of Judge W. F. Stephens and Hon. W.
