Way Rajah Birbar Saved
Head by Ready Wit.
Rajah Birbar, a boon companion of
the Emperor Akbar, the great con
temporary of Queen Elizabeth, was a
notable wit. The story goes that the
emperor once sent Birbar. with a mes
sage to the king of Persia.
. The latter, for some reason or other,
bore a grudge toward the rajah and in
order to see him lose the emperor's
favor thought of a device.
He asked Birbar: "Which of us two
is greater in power and majesty I or
Akbar? But, mind you, if your an
swer Is in any way unfavorable to me
I will order your head to be struck
"Your majesty," replied Birbar with-
. out loss of time, "is like the full moon.
while. the emperor, my master, resem
bles the crescent"
The king was highly pleased with
his reply and let him go. j :;:
This news was, however, carried to
Akbar, who was wild with rage when
he heard it ' When Birbar returned to
his master's court he was asked to ex
plain himself on pain of death;
"My comparison," - said J Birbar,
''meant only this much and nothing
mpre that the i decline of the Persian
king's power had commenced,1 just as
the full moon, after it is full, goes on
waning, while your majesty is destined
to rise oh and one till, like the crescent
becoming the full moon in time, it will
shine forth with magnificent splendor
of glory." ..

of wit and wisdom, heaped the rajah

"Woman Not to Be a Suffragette."
Surrounded by followers and stu
dents in her apartments in a New York
hotel, Mrs. Annie Besant, chief priest
ess of the theosophists, who recently
arrived in the metropolis from India,
discussed the new civilization she fore
sees close at hand. The day was

we cannot see as far or as clearly as
we can when the air is not reeking
with moisture.' I refer, of course, to
seeing with the physical eye. The third
eye, about which I have spoken since I
have been here (New York) this time,
penetrates all mists. Every one of the
few really great : leaders of mankind
since time began has possessed this
third eye. It was by means of this
they were able to see through the ages
and back across the cycles of the past'
In the coming era that lost sense
will be restored to everybody. Then
the spiritual age will be ushered in.

materially as it is possible to go. The :
change is bound to come or the race

Airships In the Past.
"The people oMndia have more-near- 1
ly preserved the full use- of the third '
eye than any other people. I have
been living among them for years,, and .
nothing in their civilization has star- 1
tied me more than this. Their authen- !
tic history comes down in an unbroken ;
line reaching back to ages that make- J
our civilization seem a mere upstart

use in the past andvin many essentials
a better age. The airship then in use
was lifted from the earth by a pro
pulsive force, as seen through occult
ism, and sailed the air as serenely as
a stanch craft sails a summer sea."
Mrs. Besant was asked for fuller de
tails of the new civilization than she
has yet outlined.
Primarily," she said, "spirit will be
the dominating characteristic, just as.
intellect Is the dominating characteris
tic of this civilizaton.' In all ages we
find in the superior man something be
yond : the strictly- intellectual. This
was illustrated in the Christ. -
. :.' Divorce Wjll Disappear. j
"It is that quality that will mark
the new civilization. Men will be more
nearly equal than now. 1 do not mean
this in the socialistic sense. Nature
is not socialistic.' The niajority never
rules. It is the minority always that
rules. It is the aristocrat that leads,
not the plebeian.- So necessarily there-!
will be distinctions between men in the
new- civilization. As I see it there
will be no divorce in the coming dis
pensation. This civilizaton we are
now living in brought in divorce. Di
vorce will disappear just as the In
numerable other shortcomings of this
era will vanish. . The sequences will
be more clearly defined. As we have
developed up to this era we have had
periods or stages of passion, emotion
and intellect. The next in the line of
sequence will be spiritual. In the
United States, where there is a won
derful mixture of racial bloods, the
entrance, into the new civilization
ought to be easier than among any
other people. Duty will take the place
of right in the new era. By 'right' I
mean the assertion of individual claim.
Duty merely is the recognition of your

our civilization, the family unit?"
Stronger Family Ties.
''Not at all." replied Mrs. Besant;
"The family unit will be maintained In
the new civilization without the ad
ventitious aids of laws and conven
tions. ; The sense of duty will make di
vorce foreign to desire as foreign as
fire to water. The duty of the fam
ily to the state will be developed so
plainly that written laws will not be
necessary. Strength will be subject
always to service. Every child will
make an equal appeal to the adult and
still the family ties will be stronger
than they are now." .
"There will always be need of. reli

tolerant and will not impose dogmas.

become mystical." '-- .

animation., "will not be a suffragette.
