The mate called Captain Fisher and:  he looked upon the scene and was bewildered. There was no accounting for  the wonderful sight. The city seemed  as re:ii as San Fram'isco seems, to a  vessel anchored in thc channel r.car  Coat's island.

Mr*. EnipHOu's Stolen Book and Hoi*
She AdjiiNteil Mattem.
"It is tlic easiest thing iu tiie world,'
eaiC Sirs. Empson, "to be a shoplifter.
I turned one myself today. I stole a
book called 'Happy Thoughts For llap-
py People.' 1 didn't mean to steal it.
I pickeel it up by mistake' and walk*?d
away with it. I didn't know-I had it
until I got almost home."
"In that case," said Empson, "I suppose you will take it back."
'���y-y-yes. I suppose so. The only difficulty about that is that I don't know
where to take it. I don't know where
I gut it. I was in the book department
of half .a dozen stores and at every
count'jr I looked at a 'Happy Thoughts'
book. I don't know which place it wan
that I really turned thief."
"It was probably tho lust place you
were in," suggested Empson. r'"At any
rate, f advise you .to go there and explain your mistake1. They wijl probably know their own goods."
Mis. Kmpson promised to attend to
the restoration of purloined literature
early the following morning. Evidently his wife's misdemeanor weighed
heavily on Mr. Empson's mind, lor his
first question that night was about tha
"Did you take It back?" he asked.
"Belonged where I thought It did, I
suppose V"
."Yes���that is, the floorwalker thought
,lt was theirs."
"That's  good,"   said  Empson.    "I'm

called, is Jacqu3s Lebaudy; son of a
wealthy P'rrnchman who owneii sugar refine'ries, but seized with ambition, thc son left his home,in Pans,
founded'a^colony in the Sahara de-
serl.Jiired an aimy ?nd conferred upon  himself  imperial  honors.
An   English traveler   who  recently
visiteel  the capital 'of the emperor of
Sahara, gave  to a stall  conespondent
of  the Buffalo Express  a dose range
view  of Jacques I.
'The    Emperor  of  Saraha,"  said
this   Englishman, "has done wondeis
in a'Country that formerly produced
hardly anything and was wholly given  up to     brigandage  and   poverty.
Two years  ago,  when he went      to
Sahara,  the territory  over which he
now  rules   was  in  a most  primitive
state.   Now law" and order have been
established  there,  schools have been
opened,  an embryonic o.ty of     6,000
people     has  bcon brought into'existence,' many acres  ha"-c been brought
under      cultivation  and  yields .sugar,
cotton,  rice and tobacco,  while stores, granaries and other improvements
have been introduced.   His  empire is
self-supporting     and   well  go.erned.
He himself .leads a most  industrious
life and   is  the hardest worker in Ms
kingdom.   His role is that of a beneficent      autocrat.    He has  instsalicil
Frenchmen at tbe heatl of the various   departments  of his   government.
They arc practical men and good or-
ganizcis  and have displajed  remarkable  tact in dealing with  the Arabs,
who  are   naturally  a most  intractar
ble  race.
It is true that Jacques   maintains
a harem,   but  he elros  so solely      because,   to  obtain lespect  for his  authority, he finds   it necessary  to conform     to   thc customs of his people.
There     is nothing-    of    thc libertine
about  him.    All   the  men   in  his employ aie given  pay aiid rations sufficient     to enable  thorn   to maintain
