SPOILS OF AN OLD CASKET
Carefully Hidden Dowry of a Ho-

A true fairy tale concerning an Ori

The' casket is of beautiful artistio

give to a bride in Mohammedan coun-

There Is a perfume of rose leaves, a
delicate far away fragrance of the dis
tant east, when the cover is .lifted. The
antiquary bought it at a general sale
long ago and offered it to purchasers
amid Louis XVI clocks, old ribbons and
out of date decorations. A lover of
quaint antiques, M. . Maurice saw the
casket ana bought It
As it had been knocked about a rood
deal in Its long Journey It stood In need
Of repairs and M. Maurice gave it to an
expert workman to restore. The-work
man tapped it and was surprised to no
tice a metallic sound Inside. He found
that the Jewel box had a double bottanv
ana wnen openea there were rows of
old and odd coins, whicn glittered farm.

of .Solomon... He divided the gold coins
Into two equal piles and told M. Maurice
