The Terrible Julian.
In fear and trembling sat Ulin ,
awaiting the coming of the terrible
robber. Half an hour passed , and she
had not been troubled ; but during that
time she had witnessed transactions
which were not calculated to allay her
.fears. She had seen over fifty of the
king's guards bound and led away , and
nhe saw that a number of the robbers
had been placed on guard at the en
trance of the rocky passage. They
were wild , savage looking men , ap
pearing to her fear-wrought vision ,
like the evil spirits she had heard her
old black nurse tell about.
At length the Sound of feet was
hoard near at hand , and very shortly
the door of the apartment was opened ,
and a black slave entered. It was a
woman , and one of those whom the
king had left.
"Good lady , " she said , trembling as
she spoke , "the hour of doom has
come. I am a slave to a new master ,
and that master has sent me to tell
you that he wishes to see you. "
"Who is he ? " asked Uliii.
"I don't know , but I think he is Ju
lian , the Scourge. His look is terrible. .
Upon his brow sits the. thundercloud ,
and in his eye flashes the forked light
ning ! "
"Will he come up here ? "
"He said so. "
"I have no power to prevent him.
Tell him I am weak and defenceless ,
and at his mercy. "
The slave bowed and withdrew , and
in a little while some one else came. A
heavy footfall sounded without , and
the door was slowly and carefully
But , who is this ? What spirit has
thus appeared in the palace ! A man
had entered the chamber alone. He
was youthful not more than three or
four-and-twenty with kindly look ,
and of noble bearing. He was not
larger of frame than common men ;
but the perfect symmetry of form , the
exact correspondence of all the parts ;
the delicate rounding of the graceful
outline , and the filling up of all
points where sources of strength could
be deposited , gave token of a power
which might lead the careless observer
to pronounce him a giant.
He gazed upon the beautiful maiden
for some moments without speaking ,
seeming to drink in a new inspiration
from her loveliness , as the student of
nature does when some new and un
expected scene of grandeur bursts upon
"Fair lady , " he said in softest tones ,
"permit me to hope that this intrusion
may be pardoned. I would not give
ft you pain , and if you have been alarm
ed , be assured that you have cause
for it no more. Tell me how I may
serve you. "
He approached her as he spoke , and
she , without hardly realizing what she
did , arose and gave him her hand. If
he had gazed upon her with admira
tion , her own feelings had not been en
tirely different. Her woman's in
stinct told her that here was a man
whom she could trust ; and her wo
man's heart beat with an emotion en-
tnrely new and strange.
"Noble sir , " she said , meeting his
gaze with the strength of perfect
trustfulness , "Heaven has sent you to
save me from the dread man who has
made his way to this place. If you
have the power to do it , you will lead
me to bless you forevermore. "
"Of what man do you speak ? " asked
the stranger , still holding her hands.
"I speak of him who is known as the
Scourge of Damascus of the terrible
The man was silent for a few mo
ments , but he did not withdraw his
gaze from the maiden's face.
"Sweet lady , " he at length said ,
speaking very lowly and tenderly. "I
am informed that the king of Damas
cus has sent you hither to keep you
safely until he can make you his wife. "
"Ho hath done so , sir. "
"And yet it seems that he did not
provide so wisely , after all. "Would
you wish to be carried to the king ? "
"No , no , sir not to the king. I
would be carried to my father. "
There could be no mistaking the
character of the emotions under which
the princess spoke. With all the king's
power her hope was not in him. The
stranger marked the changes of her
countenance ; and , while a warmer
light shone in his handsome eyes , he
"I cannot say when you shall be re
turned to your father ; but I can give
you my solemn assurance that I can
protect you. I will protect you from
the hands of those whom you have
cause to fear ; and. at the same time ,
I will regard you as a sacred trust , to
lie respected and purely cherished.
And now , lady , have I your confi
dence ? "
He let go her hands , held until now ,
and when he had taken a seat not far
from her , he continued :
"Lady Uliu , you have spoken of Ju
lian , and I see that you fear him. Did
you ever see him ? "
Ulin shuddered as she answered in
"Did you ever hear his story ? "
"No , sir. Albia has told me some
thing : , but not much. "
"I can tell you the whole , if you
woulC hear it. "
"I r.hould like to hear it. fair sir. "
"BeiJeve me , lady , when you have
heard Tvhat I shall tell you , you will
not rey.rd Julian with so much of ab-
horrence. But ot one thing I give you
warning : In telling the story of Ju
lian I must speak harsh words against
your affianced husband. "
"My affianced husband ? " repeated
Ulin , with a troubled pause between
"T mean Horam , King of Damas
cus , " said the stranger , regar ing the
beautiful maiden as though he read
her every thought.
"I am not keeper over the character
of Horam. The truth , spjkcn In a true
cause , will not offend me. "
"Then , lady , let me first assure you
that Julian is not the monster your
fears have painted. He has never done
wrong to any , save the powerful oi
Damascus. Go to the forests and
mountains of Lebanon , and you shall
find a thousand poor peasants whose
families he has befriended. He has
taken gold and jewels , and precious
stuffs of silk and linen , from the stores
of Horam ; but he hath not made him
self rich therefrom. He and his fol
lowers have lived , and beyond this the
booty has been bestowed upon the poor
and needy. Julian hath also waylaid
and broken up caravans ; and turned
back many expeditions which the king
had sent out. He may be just what
hath been said he may be the Scourge
of Damascus , but he has no wish to
trouble honest men. His aim has been ,
vengeance upon the king. "
"And why should he seek such ven
geance upon the king ? " asked Ulin.
"I will tell you , lady. But for the
king of Damascus Julian might be now
one of the most free and happy men
living ; but as it is , he is a stranger and
an outcast upon the face of the earth.
He is a wanderer , without a home , and
with only such friends as are bound
to him in his adventurous and danger
ous course. Once many years ago he
had parents and the prospect of life
was bright before him ; but in an un
happy hour the gloom and the dark
ness came. Horam , in wicked , jealous
vrrath , swept away all that was bright
and promising from the path of Julian
and shut out the star of hope forever.
0. sweet lady , I dare not pain your ear
with all that Horam did. Were I to
tell you all , you would regard the
king as such a monster that your
heart would close against him , and
your very soul would shrink at the
sound of his name. As true as the
heavens are above us , so true is it that
the heart of Julian is not evil. When
he looks back upon the utter desola
tion of his young life , and realizes that
the king of Damascus malignantly
and cruelly brought the curse upon
him can you wonder that his soul is
fraught Avith vengeance ? "
"I never heard this story before , "
said Uliu , her voice trembling with
deep emotion. "If it is true , as you
have told me , I cannot blame Julian
so much. "
' And yet you fear him , lady ? "
"I cannot help it. He hath come
hither in battle array , and made war
against me. "
"Nay , nay , sweet lady. You do much
mistake his intent. I can tell you why
he came hither. He heard from a mes
senger whom he met upon the plains of
Marthal , that a fair damsel was shut
up here a maiden whom the king in
tended to marry. It might have pleas
ed him to deprive Horam of a wife ;
but it pleased him more to release a
gentle lady from such enslavement. He
knows what the king of Damascus has ,
ere this , done unto his wives. He
has heard that the dark waters of the
Pharpor are but a short span from the
royal bed. And hence he came to
set free one whom he feared might
meet a worse fate than the encounter
ing of the Scourge of Damascus. Did
he commit a grievous sin in this ,
lady ? "
"Indeed , sir , I know not what to
"Will you not see Juliain ? Do not
shudder. I assure you that he will be
most gentle in his bearing. But I
know he would like to speak with you
he would hear from your own lips
that you do not think him a monster ;
and he would also know your pleas
"When will he come ? "
"Let it be tomorrow morning , lady.
It is near evening now , and your rest
shall not be disturbed. You may sleep
as safely tonight as ever you slept
upon your mother's bosom , and so
shall you be safe while I am near you.
You will see Julian in the morning ? "
"You will come with him ? "
"If you wish it , lady. "
"I do wish it , for I feel that I am
acquainted with you ; and , further
more , I have said that I would trust
"It shall be so. "
And thus speaking the visitor arose ,
and moved towards the door. He turn
ed , with his hand upon the latch , and
"I trust that your dreams may be
sweet and pleasant. If dark phantoms
come to your pillow they shall not beef
of Julian. There is another whom you
have more cause to dread one who , in ,
hard and hoary age would feast upon
the charms of your loveliness. Par
don me , for I go with a blessing
breathed upon thee. "
In a moment more the man was
gone , and the door was closed behind
him. Ulin gazed vacantly upon the
spot where he had stood , until she
felt a hand upon her shoulder. She
started , and looked up ; and it was only
"My dear mistress , is nol this a
strange adventure ? "
"Very strange , " replied the princess ,
citing her eyes to the floor , and then
slowly raising them to that vacant
"What do you think of the strange
man ? " the slave girl pursued , sitting
down by her lady's side.
"What do you think of him ? " said
"I think he is very handsome. Ho
is the most noble looking man I ever
Ulin showed by her look that she
was grateful for this answer. It pleas
ed her , though she may not have
"Such a man could not be a bad
man , " she said. "Deception cannot
dwell in such a face. "
"I should think not , " returned Albia ,
to whom the remarks had been put in
the form of questions.
"And what do you think of the story
he told concerning the robber Julian ? "
"I think he told us the truth , my
lady. As he went on with the tale ,
1 remembered that I had heard it just
so before. He told us the truth. "
"Then the king must be a hard , bad
man , Albia ? "
"I must not answer you lady. The
king is to be your husband , and it is
not well that you should urge me to
speak against him. "
"Indeed , girl , I asked you to do no
such thing. I did not mean that you
should speak against the king. "
"Then you should have asked me no
question touching his character. I
would rather talk of this man who
has just left us. I , who am only a
poor slave , could love such a man. "
Ulin lifted her hand to her heart ,
and pressed it there as though some
new feeling had crept in to worry her ,
and , as she sat thus , one of her black
slaves came in to see if she would like
"Not now , Calypso , " said the prin
cess , starting up. "You may bring
me some grapes , and a few dates. But
first , tell me what these strange men
are doing. How many of them are
there here ? "
"Not more than a score of them are
in the palace , my mistress , but there
are thousands of them outside of the
Ulin had no disposition to argue the
point ; so she asked what the robbers
. "Albia , " said the princess , after the
black slave had gone , "I do not believe
that Julian is such a terrible looking
man , after all. What do you think ? "
"I think , " replied Albia , "that people
ple have described him who never saw
him , and that their fear-fraught imag
inations drew the picture. "
"So I think , " returned Ulin. She
gazed a few moments upon that old
vacant spot , and then added : "I shall
see him on the morrow , and I must say
that the thought is not frightful. I
feel assured that he means me no
"ret , " ventured Albia , "it is a curi
ous whim which should lead him to
seek to release you from the hands of
the king. But I don't know as we can
wonder at it. Perhaps he thought you
were some friendless girl who did not

panion to stop.
"We will not talk of the king , Al
bia : and , touching this Julian , we
shall know more when we see him. "

The Marriage of a Couple Stops Gossip
la the East.
The end of the troubles of Miss
Jennie Howell of Scranton , Pa. , and
Edward B. Dean of Hackensack , N. J. ,
came when they were married. The
courtship of Mr. Dean and Miss Howell
was attended by unusual difficulties.
The young couple met at Atlantic City
last summer and were mutually at
tracted. Miss Dean was a woman of
31 , and an invalid. Mr. Dean was a
widower of 48 , and each was well situ
ated with regard to worldly goods.
Mr. Dean frequently visited Miss How
ell in Scranton , and a story was soon
circulated that they were engaged.
This was violently opposed by Miss
Howell's brother , Franklin Howell ,
who instituted proceedings to have her
declared a lunatic. How these pro
ceedings finally collapsed in the face
of the testimony of expert physicians
from Philadelphia was told in the pa
pers a short time ago. In answering
the questions of the marriage license
docket in court , Mr. Dean had placed
on the records mention of the fact
that he was divorced from his first
wife in Cameron county in December ,
1879 , and his second wife died on
March 17 , 1900.
Cork Industrial Exhibition.
The Cork Industrial exhibition ,
which is to be held next year , has not
only been supported by substantial
subscriptions from both Cork and Dub
lin , but it has now been given the sup
port of the Irish department of agri
culture and technical instruction , of
which Mr. Horace Plunkett is presi
dent. The department , it is an
nounced , has allocated a sum cf
5,000 for the purpose of the exhibi
tion , subject to the general scheme be
ing approved by the department. A
portion of the sum will be devoted by
the department to the organization of
an exhibit of products , appliances , and
processes relating to industries , which
are capable of being introduced into
Ireland , or when already established ,
or being developed.

GBEATHEED OF STUDY
IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND
Shall Vfo Increase Prosperity by Dliftln-
lulling the Employment of Domestic
Labor Through Larger Purcuusuj oi
Blade Good * ?
According to a recent interview in
the Boston Transcript Senator Cul-
lom of Illinois is among the fresh
devotees of the policy of tinkering the
tariff schedules by means of special
trade treaties. He is quoted as being
firmly convinced that our foreign mar
kets are threatened and that there is
danger of an alliance of European
countries to resist the inroads of Amer
ican trade through the imposition oi
retaliatory duties upon American ex
ports. Thus we see one more timid
soul frightened into fits by the bugbear
which certain interests are so indus
triously exploiting for the.-purpo-c o !
extending their own export trade at
the expense of anybody and everybody
except themselves. Senator CuHom
easily drops into free trade dialect
when he says :
. "If we build a wall around our mar-
Rets the Europeans say we can hardly
complain if they follow our example.
And that is the situation. It is a sim
ple business proposition that as busi
ness men , or as a business nation , we
should he on the alert. In danger oi
losing our markets , we must sea what
can be done. "
Frequent mention of that "Chinese
wall" by the enemies of protection has
made it a very familiar figure oi
speech. It has also become a very ab
surd figure of speech in view cf the
fact that we are sending out more ex
ports than any other nation on earth ,
and are taking in of competitive im
ports all that we ought to take , and
more , too. It is your zealous new
convert who can be relied upon to
swallow a doctrine without a qualm.
The old stagers don't have so much
to say about the "Chinese wall" as
they used to.
So far as the senior senator from
Illinois has gone in his study of the
problem of increasing domestic pros
perity by decreasing the employment
of domestic labor he is of the opinion
"Probably much of the difficulty can
he met by reciprocity. It is a case oi
give and take. We get lower duties on
certain of our goods going to other
countries , and they are permitted , in
return , to send certain goods here
without paying such a high tariff.
While this has been our avowed pol
icy , we have not lived up to it con
sistently. Our State Department has
negotiated a number of treaties pro
viding for reciprocal reductions , and
then the senate has proceeded to ig
nore them. To foreign nations this
looks like bad faith. In my opinion it
behooves the Senate to take up these
treaties and give them serious consid
eration. They should be viewed and
voted upon from the standpoint of the
whole country's welfare , and not s'm-
ply from supposed local self-iutsrast.
I have been giving the subject some
special study this spring and will do
my part to press it on the attention of
Congress next winter. "
Senator Cullom should persevere in
his special study of the subject. Spe
cial study is precisely what is needed
Close application for the next six
months may enable him to arrive at
a sound conclusion regarding the veiy
important question. What industries
shall we sacrifice through diminished
protection in order that some of the
Illinois senator's influential const'tu-
ents may increase their exports of
machinery and agricultural imp'e-
ments ? This question wi'l have to be
answered when the reciprocity treaties
come up again next winter , and Sen
ator Cullom will need all the special
study he can spare to the subject if
he shall be prepared with a wise and
an intelligent solution.
Americans liny Them to the Extent of
About Si S.OOO.OOO n Year.
Statistics of the Treasury Depart
ment show thac in the twelve months
ending April 1 , 1901 , 3,873,420 bottles
of champagne were imported into this
country. At an average of § 3.50 per
bottle this would mean an expendi
ture of $13,606,970 for imported spark
ling wines. Allowing for the lower
price of - wines bought by the case ,
the total would still be considerably
in excess of $10,000.000. Out of the
20,608,251 bottles of champagne export
ed from France in the past twelve
months , at least 3,000,000 bottles came
to this country. It thus appears that
close upon three-fourths of our im
ported champagnes come from France
and that about one-sixth of the entire
French product of champagne finds a
market in the United States. Add to
this our consumption of French still
wines , brandies , liqueurs , etc. , and it
will be seen that Americans are users
of French beverages of the value of
fully $12,000,000 a year.
This is a large sum of money * o
pay for foreign drink products that
for the most part are of no better
quality than those made in this coun
try. The standard brands of Amer
ican champagne , for example , are
made after the French formula and
process , and are in every respect equal
to the French champagne , though sell
ing for only about half the price. It
is probable that not one per cent of
American champagne drinkers have
ever given a fair trial to the really
fine champagnes of the leading Ameri
can producers. Therefore it may be
said that ignorance as well as preju
dice is at the bottom of this folly
of spending ten or fifteen million del
lars a year for foreign wines that are
no better than , often not as gcod as ,
the wines of American production. If
Americans were better Informed as to
the real quality and merit of their
domestic wines they would drink more
of them and less of the imported
wines. Keeping at home the ? 10,000.-
000 or more spent every year for
French champagnes would be of vast
benefit to the growers of grapes and
the laborers in vineyards and wine-
cellars. Alike as a gastronomic and
an economic proposition there is much
force in the plea for a larger con
sumption of domestic wines.
A I'leaslnjj Guest.
For the first few months after the
election of President McKinley In 1S9G
on the protection and prosperity plat
form we heard frequent inquiries on
the part of the enemy as to why pros
perity was lagging so long behind its
advance agent. Facetious suggestions
were made in respect to the advis
ability of inserting in the newspapers
a "lost , strayed or stolen" notice for
General Prosperity. Those scintillat
ing free-trade witticisms no longer
shine forth to dazzle a long suffering
public. It has been many a day since
any free-trader cared to assert that
prosperity had not come in with pro
tection. Now , instead of making face
tious inquiries as to the whereabouts
of General Prosperity , the free
traders devote themselves to claiming
that the formerly much praised Gen
eral Prosperity is an unattractive
gentleman of protruding stomach , who
appeals to men's appetites instead of
to their hearts and brains. The great
majority of the people of the country ,
however , have found him to be a very
pleasing guest and are more than will
ing to entertain him for an indefinite )
period. Four years more are already
arranged for , and at the end of that
time the invitation will , without
doubt , be renewed.
THE MAN WHO WORKS.
Tree-Trailo and Lost Trade.
President Robertson , of the British
Chamber of Commerce , said , in a re
cent speech , that the reason for the
decline which had come in British
trade with the United States , France
and Germany was to be found in the
protective policy which was in force
in each of those three countries ; and
he prophesied that the time would
surely come when Great Britain would
be obliged to follow the example set
by the countries referred to and enact
a protective tariff law. British free-
trade sentiment is evidently accom
panying British trade in its decline.
No nation is willing to play a losing
game forever , and Cobdenism has been
a losing game for Great Britain for
many a day. That it was not a losing
game from the beginning was due sole
ly to the fact that Great Britain had ,
under her former policy of protection ,
made herself greatly superior in in
dustrial resources to all othecoun
tries. That , in spite of the great in
dustrial advantage which England pos
sessed when she adopted Cobden's
economic theories , she has so soon fal
len behind in the race for commerce
is one of the most serious indictments
against the policy of free-trade which
could possibly be made.
The tariff duties per capita last year
amounted to but $3.01. Even if the
tariff tax were a tax on the consumer ,
which it has been conclusively proved
not to be , in the vast majority of
cases , this would be a small amount
to pay for the inestimable benefits , for
the unparalleled prosperity which the
people of this country have enjoyed
under the Dingley law. We have a
surplus instead of a deficit , and that ,
too , in time of war. American fac-
teries have been crowded with orders ,
labor has been everywhere employed at
high wages , and the supply of men
at work has fallen short cf the demand
for workmen. An immense balance of
trade has been rolled up in our favor ,
the United States has been changed
from a debtor nation into a creJitor
[ nation , and New York has been made
the financial center of the world. The
old-time and well-known free trade
cry about the "burden" which a pro
tective tariff lays upon the people of
this country has never been more
thoroughly discredited than it is to
If general business conditions had
been rotten or unsound the recent
Wall street panic would have spread
everywhere and convulsed the coun
try. The fact that it did not shows
that McKinley prosperity is very sol
idly based. Indianapolis Journal.
BROTHERHOOD OF NATIONS OF
THE WESTERN WORLD.
Cccrctury of htuto John IJuy. Hpealcs ut

The following brilliant address was
given by Secretary of State John Hay
at a banquet given by the directors of
the Pan-American exposition to the
National Editorial Association In Buf
falo on a recent evening , more than
one thousand being present :
"Last night as I looked from my
window at this marvelous creation ,
lined in fire upon the evening sky. and
today , as I have walked through the
courts and the palaces of this incom
parable exhibition , the words of the
prophet have been constantly in my
mind. "Your old men shall dream
dreams ; your young men shall sen
visions. " We who are old have through
many hopeful years dreamed thin
dream. It was noble and Inspiring ,
leading to earnest and uplifting labor.
And now we share with you who arw
young the pleasure of beholding this
vision , far nobler and more inspiring
than the dream. This idol of the
brotherhood rf the nations of the
western world is not a growth of yes
terday. It was heralded when the
country was young by the clarion voice
of Henry Clay ; it was cherished by
Seward and Evarts , by Douglas and
by Blaine. Twelve years ago we held
the first reunion of the American re
publics. Much was said and done des
tined to be memorable in our history ,
opening and blazing the way. along
the path of peace and fraternal rela
tions. We have made steady progress ,
we have grown day by day to a bettor
understanding , until now we are look
ing to our coming conference in the
City of Mexico , in which we have the
right to hope that with larger experi
ence and profounder study of the great
problems before us results still mere
important and beneficent will be
reached. As a means to those ends.as a
concrete realization of those generous
dreams which have led us thus far.
we have this grand and beautiful spec
tacle , never to be forgotten , a delight
to the eyes , a comfort to every patriot
heart that , during the coming sum
mer shall make the joyous pilgrimage , .
to this enchanted scene , where lake t
and shore and sky , the rich , bright city
throbbing with vigorous life , and in
the distance the flash and roar of the
stupendous cataract , unite their varied
attractions in one charm of powerful
magic , such as the world has seldom
seen. There has been statesmen and
soldiers who have cherished the fancy
in past years of a vast American army
recruited from every country between
the Arctic and the Antarctic seas ,
which should bind us together in ono
immense military power , that might
overawe the older civilizations. But
this conception belongs to the past , to
an order of things that has gone , I
hope , forever by. How far more in
spiring is the thought of the results
we see here now ; how much more in
keeping with the better times in whoso
light we live , and the still more glori
ous future to which we look forward ,
is the result we see today of the armies
of labor and intelligence in every
country of this new world , all work
ing with one mind and one will , not to
attain an unhappy pre-eminence in the
art of destruction , but to advance in
liberal emulation in the arts which
tend to make them happier and better ,
to make this long-harassed and tor
mented earth a brighter and more
blest abode for men of good will. ( Ap
Our hearts have glowed within us
as we have surveyed at every turn the
evidences of theequalityaml fraternity
of progress under skies so distant , un
der conditions so varying as thos'j
which obtain between Alaska and Cape
Horn. I remember how , at a World's
Fair in Paris , a great writer exclaim
ed : "What a prodigious amount of
intelligence there is in the world. " We
can say , with hearts full of gratitude
and pride : How prodigious is the prog
ress of intelligence and industry in
this New World of ours.
All the triumphs of the spirit and
of the skilled hands of labor , the gar
nered treasures of science , the witch
eries of art , the spoils of earth and air
and spa are gathered here to warn , to
delight , to encourage , and reward the
ever-striving , the indomitable mind of
man. Here you have force , which en
ables men to conquer and tame the
powers of nature ; wealth , not meant ,
as Tennyson sang , to rest in moulded
heaps , but smit with the free light to i5j
