Most photographers say they i  are glad of it. ���������  "I never did enjoy,taking the pictures  of brides," said a photographer. "Like  all the rest of the world, I love the dear  creatures, but when it comes down to  ?4 a dozen commercialism they do not  satisfy my artistic instincts. Few brides  take a good picture. Somehow1 their  togs are not becoming. A- bride is supposed to look superlatively lovely on  her. wedding day, but if anybody dared  to'tell the truth ou the subject that su-  'Perstition soon would be exploded and  the sweet things would realize that, instead 'of looking their best on that occasion, most of them,,are aptr, to-look  their worst. It is tlie same way when  they come to be photographed in their  wedding'1 finery. They are cither too  pale or too red, and they have a nervous, anxious expression" that robs the  face of all good lines for photographic  'purposes.

He was Muftah���������and the  story. Every man is a story, Muftah a  pitiful one. And all,this was outside  the, upper. Tangier gate by the'market.  - Inside the brown old gate shone the  white stuccoed- houses' and gay bazaars. Outside tbe great market place  of trodden earth 'was one mass of people and animals. The men were of  every'color and type, from pure blooded Moors of astonishing, classical beauty to flat nosed, grinning negroes as  black as night. And a' stranger medley  of que'erly cut robes .and' jilavas. of'  fezzes. white turbans and gay scarfs,  was" never seen elsewhere. ��������� Most went  barefoot. Only some of the older'and  more richly dressed had thrust their  stockingless brown feet into yellow  slippers.   . .        ',   "  Ugly t camels lay in rows, snapping  crossly at each passerby. Wild looking Arabs from the desert stalked  about, each with his' .horse's bridle  ���������wrapped about his arm, each resplendent in many . garments and ' scarfs,  newly washed and snowy., Country  ���������women sat in groups upon the ground,  displaying their, fruits,and vegetables.  They wore "large straw hats on top of  their'turbans to serve as sun umbrellas, and they looked 'like imere heaps of  "rags. Jostling each"other with great  ���������rudeness, voluble' with an oriental fluency of retort,^the throng swayed back  .and forth. Occasionally some one .rode  his donkey laden -with ipanniers-among  the women, and then -great was tbe  uproar. The air was ifiull of women's  shrill voices and their cackling laugh-,  -tier, so 'numerous were the slaves, purchasing .for their households.  -Strange that' Muftah did not raise his  head to gaze .upon this interesting life  ���������surging past himl Perhaps it is no  ���������new story to tiim? Perhaps he -has  ���������wearied for sight of It?   Alas, no'!  A -veiled slave brushes close to his  ���������side,- bracelets and anklets tinkling  merrily. , Yet Muftah heeds this not.

Sometimes they take on the form of -a'low,  ��������� broad tent, with a kettle swung over  the' fire, sheep and goats grazing, and  beyond the scanty herbage and palms  a strange golden line -of desert, .-with  hills of pink and intense purple shadows. Naked .children are at play while  their mother weaves, singing as she  crosses the heavy.��������� shuttles. A slave  mixes coarse black ca^kes f.or the.evening meal.  In the distance be sees a horseman  crossing the burning sands! The horse,  tossing his long mane, is young and  graceful. Almost Muftah can feel the  animal beneath him. The wind blows  the cutting sand of the desert about  them, but Muftah's turban veil protects him. His long mantle streams on  the breeze. Oh. the exhilaration of.  that gallop over the trackless waste!  And joyous, too. is the errand, for he  has been made sheik!  Always the strongest and most influential of'his tribe, the sultan has  now marked him for advancement.  Little does Muftah know it is as ominous a preference as that of the vulture for tho tenderest lamb. He only  feels th'it he is to be a leader among  , men. He will receive the sultan's  tribute, direct the wanderings of his  t'dbe from oasis to oasis and be at ease  and happy. Ten years of happiness���������  they seem like an hour now. Is he  thirsty? Here is a cooling spring in  the earthen jar. Is he hungry? Thoy  bring him cheese and bread, fresh  curds and pulpy dates. In the evening the men gather.-in a circle and  listen to the strange recital of some  story'teller,'who half sings, half tells,  an interminable Moorish tale.  Only ten years, and then there comes  an. obsequious messenger, desiring his  presence at the court of the bashaw  of Tangier, there to render more definite account of his stewardship than  has been given with his regularly remitted tribute money.  His laughing children have one more  ride on the beautiful Gilzar. Two  slaves pack their camels with provisions for the journey and .with presents of honey and almouds for the  bashaw.' The sbeik makes his farewell speech to bis friends, with the  touching Moslem gesture, placing his  hand upon his forehead and his heart  before "he shakes that of his companion to show that mind and heart are  faithful. Then for the last time ha  looks into tbe lovely eyes of her who  is mother of his children.  the cuff ana almost touching the ulae  water���������a beautiful sight when it first  greets his eyes. Later he comes closer  into the filth and' misery infesting it.  The bashaw, a handsome, impassive  figure, sits cross legged before his door,  his slaves grouped about him. to receive   the  envoy.     Graciously   he   accepts tbe proffered gifts and permits  the sheik 'io kiss the hem of his robe  In token of obedience.

He lies silent, seeing,dimly'dark, figures, hearing vaguely the rattle of  chains, curses, imprecations, prayers.

Could he read  the thoughts of the great? And; besides, more would not be legal and honest to his tribesmen. ��������� * .  ' Ah, the pain as they beat the soles of  his feet, and.then a quick vision of  hard, faced attendants, instruments  such as he had never seen before',- and  then a blood red mist! - And blackness! Muftah sees no<more!- Muftah,  the 'Sultan's1 prisoner, lies without the  gates, a "blind1 beggar, and the sun  blazes on'a'thousand brilliant coloring  all about him.  Every "day.he hears them, the yellow  robed priests������ who climb the-mosque  minaret inside the gate and call for  prayers. And through the mist which  enshrouds him Muftah prays, not for  himself/ not to be freed from pain, not  to have back the eyes torn from their  sockets by the orders of the sultan,  but'only that his wife, the mother of  his children,, may. know that he is true!  Day after day ^they pass him, the  once, handsome, dashing sheik of the  desert, and none.knows him nor speaks  save the tourists who shudder and  drop coins in' his hand. But today  some one pauses, some one murmurs,  "Muftah, Muftah."  And . Muftah" quivers like a young  leaf before the breeze.  "Muftah." ' "���������'  .. "You have come far?*' he asks.. And  the voice from his past answers, 4,I  come but to return."  Then Muftah, the 'prisoner of the  sultan, pours forth his tale, not com-  plainingly���������no, because it is fate, it is  kismet, it la the will of Allah. All he  asks is that she, the* mother of his  children, shall know that he was true  and' his name shall not be a reproach  to his children.  And the tribesman passes on, and  the priests in yellow robes climb to the  minaret of the mosque, and Muftah  renders thanks to Allah, who has  heard and answered his one prayer.

A Scriptural method of carving fowls  when in secular company was claimed  by a witty clergyman who. having  been asked to carve one day, said. "Inasmuch as you demand it, I will carve  the fowl according to Biblical principles." "Yes," exclaimed the hostess,  "act according to the Scriptures." The  theologian therefore began the carving.  The baron was tendered tho head of  the fowl, the baroness the neck, the  two daughters a. wing apiece and the  two sons a first joint, the carver retaining the remainder.  "According to what interpretation do  you make, such a division?" inquired  the host of his guest, as he regarded  the clergyman's heaping plate and tbe  scant portions doled out to the family.  "From an interpretation of my own,"  replied the clerical wit. "As the master of your house the head belongs to  you by right; the baroness, being most  near to you.' should receive the neck,  which is nearest the head; in the wings  the young girls will recognize a symbol  of their mobile thoughts, that fly from  one desire to another; as to the young  barons, the drumsticks they have received will remind them that they are  responsible for supporting your house,  as the legs of the capon support tbe  bird itself."

There is an amusing story by Athe-  na^us which suggests the possible origin of the phrase, "He does, not know  enough to come in out of the wet."  According to the entertaining grammarian'referred to. a'town in Greece  under stress of evil circumstances borrowed money from a rich man, who  took as security for tho loan a mortgage on" the haudsome portico which  surrounded the market place. He was  not an ungenerous creditor, for when  it rained ho caused the town criers to  announce that the citizens had permission to take refuge under the colonnade. Strangers visiting the town who  failed to have the matter properly explained to them were so impressed by  the extraordinary circumstances that  they spread abroad the report that tho  people were so stupid 'that they had to  be told when to come in out of the wet.

"I would have unlimited  opportunities of treating the eyes of  overstudious scholars."  Dr. Holland was reluctant to have a  community's eyes endangered because  of his indorsement of a doubtful practitioner. He thought a few moments  and then advised the ambitious oculist  to locate iri a small town near Liver- ' demurely.  The  IvimjraTOo's   Kick.

"You   have  keen eyes and apparently know some-  .thing about courts." '   ,  "Yes," he admitted.    "I am a friend  and gentleman in waiting of the.Prince  ' of   Lubeck-jtfalvoisie.     He  is   on   his  , way to your court."  "The"princess is expecting him," ehe  said. He leaned toward her. ,  '* "Tell me," he asked, "is the princess  really���������really���������you know���������alluring?", ,  The corners of her mouth twitched.  "Would you have me commit high  treason?" she asked in return. He"  sighed. '   "  "I never could get up much enthu-  siasm'over her myself," concluded the  girl'; "only   you must never-never say  ; I said.so!"  "Oh^ never!" he repeated impressive-'  . ly- "And if I should be tempted to,'  you know, fI don't really see how L  could, for I don't yet know your name." ���������  "That makes it very <safe," said the  girl, with a satisfied air. "And when  do you think the prince will come?"  "He comes tomorrow probabljV he  returned. "He is making an easy journey of it."  "Possibly he isn't very enthusiastic  about the princess either," said the,  girl.  "It's a matter of state, you know,"  explained the mam: "But you mustn't  betray me, you know, if I keep your  confidence."  "I see," said the girl. "How dreadful to be a prince and have to consider  the state before one's own preferences!"      . t  "Yes," said the man. "A private gentleman"-���������  "Like yourself?" interrupted the girl.  "Exactly," he answered���������"has so  many privileges. For instance, he may  steal off and perchance have a sample of paradise in the woods."  "So might a prince," objected the  girl, meeting his eyes.  "A prince!".said the man impatiently. "To a prince it remains a sample.  He must go on and find the princess,  you know. But the private gentleman  steps across the brook, so, and hopes  that paradise may last a lifetime."  The girl drew away with a little laugh  "as he sat down beside her on the moss  and pulled her skirt still farther over  her feet.  1 "Paradise will last just as long for  the private gentleman as for the  prince this time," she said. "It is  nearly over. I must get back to the  palace.   I shall be missed."  "Well," he said, laughing openly into  her pretty face, "why don't you go?"  "You know perfectly well," said the  girl   indignantly,   and  then   she,   too.  laughed.  "Please go away," she said.  "But   I    thought   you   were   going  away," he returned.  "Not till' you are quite gone." she  affirmed.  "That will be some time hence." ho  announced. She rested her chin ou  her bauds and looked off across the  brook in silence. "I will go on one  condition," he said at last.  "Name it," said the girl.  "A-kiss," said,the man, with a quick  passion, and as she Hushed he put his  arm about her and laid his cheek  against hers for an instant. The girl  was passive. As he turned his face  and kissed ber lips she put hi in away  gently, but firmly.  "That," she said as he stood beside  her, "was'done like a prince and not  like a private gentleman."  He looked down at her with a sudden gravity. "Like the prince, I must  be shut out of paradise," he said.  "But at least,I have had .paradise for  a moment." And he crossed the brook  and disappeared.    The girl crept over  to where her stockings and buckled  shoes lay at the foot of a big tree,  plain in sight, and put them on.  ' It was the next afternoon, and he  was wandering listlessly about ono of  the magnificent dreary audience rooms  of the palace .undecided whether to be  indignant or amused at the unusual  delaj' in his reception', for he had'been  .waiting fifteen minutes. Suddenly  throasih one of the great doors at the  end, of the room came the court lady.  Today she was in riding dress, the  'stopped at sight of him.  "Yon?" sho said. "And alone?"  "Not now," he returned; coming to  ward her. "In paradise, you know,  one has the best of company."

"Then," he-went on, regardless of her  raillery, "you need not come with her  to Lubeck-Malvoisic."  "Your highness does not want me?"  the girl said, .with a sudden catch in"  her breath.  "Want you!" he repeated, ,with a  groan. "Listen." He drew her to the  window and stood before her. "One  advantage a private gentleman has  over his prince is that his love and  his honor may go hand In hand. Mine  may not. My honor is tbe princess'���������  my love she cannot have, for it is  yours. But my honor, that goes with  my hand to the princess. If I were  merely a prince I should carry you off  with me today.

She had listened with lowered eyes,  and her under lip caught between her  teeth.    ���������  "Kiss me goodby," he said hoarsely,  "and go. I' kissed you yesterday once.  I don't even know your name, but I  want you to kiss me once again and  then go���������for heaven's sake, go!"

On the back  of the gauntlet she still wore was em-  Tiroidered' a crown, and there were  crowns on tho gold buttons that fastened the straps of her habit.

'*The sight of a bottle of red ink  was enough to upset her foivi week."  he said., '"On one occasion we were  flaying a-farce called 'The Lady and  the ,Devil.' An important scene of it  was when she was sitting at a ta'Jle  preparatory to writing a letter.. 1, as  her servant, stood at the back of a  ch,air.' 'Take your right hand oti that  chair,' she whispered. The stage di'a-  , loguo t proceeded. "You are sure yon  .can find Don Rafael at( his-lodgings V  'Yes, madam; his servant tells me his  wounds will confine him to his bed for  a week.'   'Is this tho only pauer that  1 i-  we havo?   Where is the ink?'   'Here,  madam.'.. And I bent lorward to place  the ink within her reach, when, in my,,  confusion at her > reproof, tho vessel  was upset' and its contents /trickled  on 'to the lap of her satin dress. .The  ink was -blood red. I shall never forget the ghastly look that overspread  her face, and I was so fri-"-litoned 'that  I never knew how the scene ended.  "Tlie next morning at rehearsal she  told me'l was doomed'to ill luck for the  remainder of my days: She called the  company together and gave them a detailed description of the 'awful -eerie'  ,'the night before -occasioned 1 v ' the  young maii'-who would never r a tee an  actor.

It was'two years  after* this that Miss,-Kecne was play-"  ing at Ford's theater, "Washington, on  the occasion when Abraham Lincoln  was shot. Miss Keeno was the only  person who seemed to realize the situation. She ran to the box, and, in a  moment the head of the dying ,man  was-in her lap, while the scene of her  dream was being pitifully enacted."���������  Argonaut. .
