SULTAN'" PIT CVir 13 L'T.'EL
Prisoners Placed in Lr.yrinth and
Offered Freedom Under Unique
A certain Sulian who was fond of
ail manner of intricate puzzles used to
amuse himself by testing the in
genuity and resource of his prisoners
of war. Among other buildings about
his palace he had a peculiar maze,
which consisted of 12 pits, open to
the sky above and connected by a
series of underground passages, which
were quite dark.
Plan cf Pit.
Upon one occasion lie caused six
prisoners to bo placed in these pits,
three of them dre.-sed in red in the
pits numbered l 2 3, and three more
dressed in yellow in the pits num
bered 10, ll, 12. The Sultan com
manded his vizier to provide each of
these prisoners, who were complete
strangers to on\ another, with a rille
and five cartridges, and to inform
them separately that any of them
who could escape alive under the fol
lowing conditions should be set free
and returned to his own country:
The three dressed in red were to
exchange places with the three dress
ed in yellow, but only one man was to
move at a time, upon a given signal,
u bell for the red and a whistle for
the yellow. Each man could move
only from the pit in which he stood
to another pit that lie could sec in a
direct line with his own, the passage
from one pit to another being always
a direct line through the dark.
As each pit commanded a view of
two others, each man was told that if
ho saw another man dressed in a dif
ferent color from himself standing in
any pit lie should Are upon him at
once nud hill him or the man whom lie

these plates are what we rail memory.
This is a purely seleutlfle view nml
does uot pertain to the soul.
Lord Tenterton, an English noble
man, hail a daughter who had been
engaged to lie married to a son of a
merchant prince. This young man,
Sidney Hough, died and left the girl
disconsolate. Sir Percy* Scarborough,
a friend of Lord Tentertou, hail a son
wl(> had gone through a similar ex
perience. He imd loved Rose Mac
Alls I er, tiie daughter of a Scotch laird,
and lost her by quick consumption.
Now, Lord Tentertou was poor, anil
he desired to ally his family with the
wealthier blood of England. Moreover,
his lordship was a scientist with orig
inal ideas. He considered only the
seieutille part of love and, looking upon
the brain on the Edison tan principle
of Innumerable photographic plates,
conceived the idea of a gradual sub
stitution of images on his daughter’s
brain to change her memory of her
dead lover to a live one.
If this could be done with her it
might be done with young Scar
borough. Tentertou called on Sir Per
cy and proposed a scheme. Sir Percy
was much disappointed al his son’s
failure to marry that the family might
he perpetuated anil was ready for any
plan that would Induce him to ilo so.
But Hugh Scarborough, like Edith Ten
terton, refused to be comforted and
would not consent to take another
mate. What Lord Tenterton proposed
was accepted for trial, anil tho needful
was supplied by tlie engagement of a
One day Lord Tenterton returned to
his home from London with n portrait.
Ilis daughter, entering Ids study, saw
It hanging on tlie wall. She was struck
with its resemblance to her dead lover.
She said nothing to her father, who
pretended to bo busy writing at ids
desk, though lie was really watching
her. He saw her gaze upon it for a
long while; then she went out to con
ceal her emotion. Tho portrait was
that of tho man she mourned, yet
slightly different. She believed it to
be the likeness of some one who very
mill Ti resembled him. Not long after
this she eniue into her father’s study
again under pretense of asking a ques
tion, but really to look at the picture.
It seemed to her that it had undergone
a slight change; but, being in the same
place and in tho same frame as the
one she hail seen before, she thought
she was mistaken. From time to time
she visited the study to gaze upon the
portrait, and every time she found
some slight change.
The portrait had been painted by the
artist employed to carry out the
■a heme, and lie was gradually altering
it from a picture very like her dead
lover to a likeness of Hugh Scarbor
ough. Arid while lie was doing this
he was ( hanging a portrait of Hose
MaeAlister to one of Edith Tenterton.
Sir Percy was Imposing on his son
tli-se pi< (ur«'s, substituting one for an
other, just as Lord Tenterton was im
posing oil his daughter the dissolv
ing picture of Sidney Hough. Finally
after a long interval both portraits had
been altered from the dead to the

Invited Sir Percy to visit him and to
bring with him ids son. Scarborough
insisted upon Hugh’s going with him,
and when on tlie evening of their ar
rival Hugh and Edith met at dinner
there was a scene of much interest to
(he two fathers. Hugh stood with
wide open eyes gazing upon Edith,
while Fdilh cast one glance at Hugh,
blushed and lowered her eyes to the
‘Tie seated," said Lord Tentortou,
pretending not to notice this mutual
impression, though while the young
people were Intent upon each other
lie winked at Sir Percy. Hugh and
Edith had been assigned seats side by
side and were soon engaged In a con
versation more animated than either
had taken part in since they had lost
their loves. After dinner they were
left alone by their elders, who went
off together. During the evening
Hugh made tills remark to Edith:
"Did I not know you to be a living
person I should believe you—so far us
appearance is concerned—to lie one
who Is dead."
‘ I have a similar experience in you,"
she replied. "Your likeness to one who
is no more is something remarkable.”
A mouth later tlie two fathers were
congratulating themselves that the son
of the one and the daughter of the
other were to lie married.
"I tell you, Scarborough," said Ten
terton, "these Americans are a great
people. They will before long ana
lyze love and tell us how to bring
about affinities in people the same as
"You bet"’ replied Sir Percy.
