throuoli tho bnznnr vviih her veil torn;
fhr- appeared in great distress, rnd imm
hem iiy the cry of Abdalluh, sent ono of
her hlaves to him wiih thi.s i.iessago : " If
you aro an imposler, tny husband (.lial I
cause ymi lo to bastinadoed ; if you are
really an astrologer, inform me whero I
i-hr-.I find a lie ill ace of pcarl.i which I
havo lost ihis day. " Poor Abdallali be
wilderod, gazed iijxjii tliu lady, and in
gaininp; time to invent nn answer, said :
" She can will the pearln, when they are
near, fur tho veil is lorn!" These words
were reported to her by tho slave, and
sho uttered a cry of joy. Admirable
prophet !" hho exdnjined ; " I placed my
pcar'a for Fnfety in a rent in the veil of
tho bath!" and bho ordered Abdallali to
bo resented with foi ly gold pieces. Now,
it hhould be liiiuwn that in the Persian
Imtlis there are screen, tlio name of
which is (ho same hs the native word
for ' vejl." Ho Abdallali, by a lucky ac
cident of speech, had not only saved him
self from the bastinado, but had gained
forty places ufgold. ; -
At length, another lady, tho wife- of the
king's treasurer, made her nppearaace,
and just at that moment a messenger from
the treasurer came up to Abdallah, in the
bazaar, and spoke lo him. The lady stood
close by, and listened. " Alidallah," said
the slave, my master lias lost ' tho king's
crcal ruby j if thou hast tho wixdoin of the
star, thou cajt-t find it ; if not, thou art
pretender, and I will assuredly cause thee
to be bastinadoed." This time the unfor
tunate barber was alhis wit's end. " Oh,
woman !" he exclaimed, " thou art the ou
thor of this T Ho meant his own wife;
but the wife of tho treasurer, who stood
by, imagined he referred to her. Guilt
is always pale, the poet says. She her
self had stolen tho king's ruby; and be
lieved that tho abtiloger vas a v. aro of
her crime. So, when the messenger had
departed, leaving the barber petrified
with perplexity, the npprcached him, and
said in a soft tone, " Oh, astrologer, I con
fess that, in an hour of avarice, I too't the
jewej. lte.slon it, without sending me to

Where is tho jewel ? Sho answered
" Under the fourth cushion from the door,
in tho apartment of Kahain, my lord's
Georgian nlav." Abdallah hastened io
the pabce, was rewarded with a robo ol
honor, a thousand gold piece, and a cost
ly ornament. . . . .-.
Urged hy his uife, Abdallah essayed
one? more. Tho king's treasury had been
broken open, aud forty chests of money
had beeu tarried nwny. Not a trace of
the thievos ha ! been discovered. The
royal as.rologer had tried every sort of
Jiviuaibii. and failed, ond was therefore
in disgrace. . Cut tho fama of Abdallah,

Hall of Kalact Serponi'htdeh. V Abdul

his face, " art thou truly able to read the
stars, ? "Tut mo to the proof," answered
the barber, who now waspierared for tho
worst. ".Then discover the forty chests
of . money which lira a teen stolen, as
well as th criminal. Surc-eed, and thou
shall marry a princess, and become my

41 There m ist hav heeu forty . thieve,"
said Abdallah, making a fortunate iA
not Tery difficult guess. Grant me for
ty days." Forty days thou hah have,"
tuid die king; and thou shall then die, or
livo for riches and honor." . .
So the i arber -ont home and loM his

thnt, by counting the remainder, I may re

Sho complied, and every day, at the exact
hour of simsat, Abdallah gave her a bean
and said, with great firmness and solemni
ty, "Thero is ono of them." And, on
the Inst day, ho said, in an excited man
ner, "There are tho whole forty, of
.hern 1" What was his astonishment
when, at that instant, a violent knocking
was heard at tho door! A crowd of men
were admitted, and ono of them, evident
ly tho chief, said, "Oh, Abdullah, wise
avirologer, thou shall receive the forty
chests of gold untouched, but spare our
lives !" In supreme bewilderment, ho an
swerd, "This night I should have seized
theo and thy wretched companions ) but
tell me on thy head, how knowest thou
that I possessed this knowledge?" "We
heard," said the chief of the tobbers,
"dint tlie king had sent for thee ! There
fore one of us came at tlio hour of sunset,
lo listen nt thy door, and henrd thee say,
There is ono of them.' We would not
believe his story, and sent two ' to ascer
tain it, and thou was heard to say, there
ore two pf them and this night, .oh,
wonderful ! thou didst exclaim, 'There are
the whole forty !' but restore the king's
money and do not deliver os unto the ex
ecutor." Abdallah promised to do what he could.
Being admited to tho palace, he declared
that, owing to some mystery of the stars,
it was given him to discover either the
thieves or the treasure, but not both. The
monarrh at length consented to take the
forty chests, and fulfilled his promire to
Abdallah. , ,
