the MYSTERIOUS HAREM.
Inside View of the Sacred Mahometan
From the Saturday Review.
Iu theory tlie Moslem classes his women
kind wit jj the holy of holies of Mecca. The
innermost shrine of his temple and the
rooms with latticed windows are both
called by the same name of Harem or “Sa
cred.” The apartment is harem, and the
ladies who live in it are harem for all but
the lord and master. He may enter at will,
but generally announces bis coming before
hand, so that he may not run the risk of
meeting female visitors who are probably
the wives of his friends. In well regulated
houses the husband intrudes onlv at fixed
hours, perhaps for a short time after mid
day player, aud does not else favor his
harem until he retires to rest. Home life,
such as we understand it, cun scarcely be
said to exist for the Mahometan. The man
lives in aud at his work outside, and the
woman among her slaves aud friends in the
harem. The most interesting view of the
home life of the harem is when it is consid
ered as the cradle in which Eastern man
hood is reared. Schools of any kind are
few and meagerly patronized,'and board
ing schools are unknown. A few boys are
sent to Paris, Constantinople or Syria to be
educated, but the majority grow up among
slave girls and servunts, seeing a great deal
which they ought not to see, and learning
very little'of what they should. It is small
wonder, then, that the better moral quali
ties, if any were ever inborn, are rapidly
obliterated, and the boy grows up to the
man saturated with vice and effeminacy.
The women occupants of the harem are the
wife or wives and the female slaves. Per
haps on no subject does greater misconcep
tion prevail than on this of harem slavery.
The field, however, is too wide a one to be
touched on more than incidentally.
The name of slave as applied to the Geor
gian or Circassian girl is a misnomer. Sho
occupies more the position of a friend, or at
least of a lady’s companion, if she does not,
as is often the case, become an adopted
daughter of the house. She is well and
sometimes expensively dressed, and shares
the small amusements of her mistress at the
theatre, the moolid or the promenade. Now
and then the lady may fly in a passion and
soundly box the girl’s ears or pull out a
handful of hair; but a reconciliation soon
takes place and is usually cemented with a
present of jewelry or a uew dress.
The principal diversion of harem life con
sists in the visits of friends and of a perni
cious class of trading women who hawk
about articles of dress and gewgaws from
one house to another, retailing the latest
gossip and scandal with their wares and as
sisting the ladies to get into all manner of
scrapes. Wise women who tell fortunes by
cards and incantations are, also in great de
mand and their vaticinations are as a rule,
believed in by the ladies with much the same
delightful and blind confidence as is giv
en by farmers’ daughters to the mysterious
prophesies of the gypsies. Now and then con
dign punishment awaits these hags, as in the
case of the notorious Ayesha, who, several
years ago, was called for one night, hustled
into a carriage under pretense of visiting a
great harem, and hps never since been heard
of. But, as a rule, their sorceries, evil eyes
and charms are perfectly harmless, and
when there is nothing better to do they are
called in to beguile the heavy hours. Nor
must the men singers be left out in the cata
logue of delights of the harem—a delight,
nevertheless, which is but sparingly indulged
in, and can only be enjoyed to the full when
the harem’s lord is away.
A notion seems generally prevalent in
Europe that if only the harem doors were
opened a rush for liberty would immedi
ately take place, and many are the sym
pathies wasted on the supposed prisoners of
the Mahometan marriage tie. In reality,
both men and women consider their state
far superior to that of Europeans. The
man argues thus: “You are a slave from
the moment you marry. You cannot go
out to iunch or dinner or to your friends
without taking your wife with you. You
cannot even leave her alone for a few hours
without giving an account of yourself.
Such a state of things would be unbearable
to me. I go where I like and she goes
where she likes. I pay my servants to look
after her, and I am sure that she is not
flirting with other men when I am not by
her side. You are never sure of this,” etc.
This is his line of argument.
The woman says: “My religion forbids
me to look upon other men than my hus
band. If I changed my religion perhaps I
would like to mix up with every fellow I
come across, but as long as I am a Mahome
dan I detest the thought of it. I cover my
face from the sight of the world, as your
women cover their bodies. As to being
watched and guarded, it is a compliment
which shows how much my husband cares
for me. If he were to leave me to do what
I liked, I should know he did not care for
me and I should feel deeply insulted.”
It is difficult for the AY estern mind fully
to grasp the immense gulf between our ideas
and theirs. Their reasoning is fallacious
and almost ridiculous from our standpoint,
but it is good enough from theirs. And
therefore as lo g as the Mahometan religion
lasts so long will the harem exist. And its
existence is, on the whole, a happy and con
tented one, in spite of all the reasoning
which may ba brought to show that it
ought to be miserable Centuries of com
munion and contact with Europeans may
possibly change the ideas born and culti
vated in the harem, but there is as yet no
sign whatever of such a change. Up to the
present no appreciable difference is notice
able in the domestic economy of the Mos
THE LOWELL, STATESMAN.
Ben Butler Might Have Become Presi
dent in Andrew Johnson’s Place.
Washington Letter to the Milwaukee Sentinel.
Ben Butler might have been President of
the United States. The blue bloods of
Massachusetts scouted at the idea that he
would ever be Governor of their Common
wealth, but time, with its proverbial work
ing of wonders, made that possible, and old
Ben marched out to Harvard at commence
ment as much the hero of the day as any
Governor of the old Bay State had ever
been. At a time when people were calling
him “Brute” aud “Beast” Butler, it seemed
ridiculous to suppose that he would ever
be President, aud yet it is a positive
fact that but for hi' own refusal Ben Butler
would have occupied the White House.
1 his, of course, was not in 1884, when he
was an open and active candidate of the
Labor party. It was in the last days of
lsdl-l, when Lincoln desired a renomination
as a sign of the people's verdict appraising
his administration. The manager of the
Republican party had decided that Hanni
bal Hamlin was not to lie the candidate
again for Vice President. Mr. Seward's
name was out of the question, as it was not
supposed that he would accept a
nomination, preferring to remain
the Premier of Mr. Lincoln’s adminis
tration, as it was assured him that he
should remain through Lincoln's second
term, in case the President should lie re
elected. Other names were suggested, but.
against each some objection was found. On
all sides it. was admitted that the party
would nominate any man whom Mr. Lin
coln might choose to be associated with him.
One day the President sent for Simon
Cameron and said to him: “I have a special
mission for you. I want you .to go to
Fortress Monroe and ask Gen. Bfttler if he
will accept the nomination for the Vice
Presidency on the ticket with mo. If he
will accept he shall have the place.”
Gen. Butler was then in command south
of the James. Gen. Cameron went down
the Potorr.er at once and saw Butler. He
delivered the President’s message, together
with his own earnest entreaty that Gen.
Butler should become the candidate for
v ice President, supporting the suggestion
with a number of very strong arguments.
' course such a nomination would vindi
cate Gen, Butler before the country and
answer all the slanders and criticisms that
had been poured out on his name. It was
•h exceedingly tempting proposition to any
man. even under fair sailing, and espe
cially to one who had been made the target
of utilise North and South during the war
anil from all sorts of people. As Gen.
< ’mneron related the incident, it seems that
Butler himself thought of the possibility of
such a suggestion, for ho answered without
the least hesitation, going at ouoo to the
meat of the question.
“No,” he said, “1 do not believe that any
man who can tight ought at this time to
leaye the army to accept a civil position for
which there are many other men amply
fitted.” At that timeGeh. Butler regarded his
military reputation as the main tiling in his
career. Ho supposed himself to be in good
standing with the President, with Congress
and with tho loyal people of the North, and
had ambitions for himself which entitled
him certainly to great praise. (ten. Cam
eron returned to Washington and delivered
Butler’s answer to Mr. Lincoln, who was
greatly disappointed. It was after this that
the name of Andrew Johnson, who had
beet) Governor of Tennessee, was taken
up. The difference between the two small
words “yes” and “no” was all that stood be
tween Butler's becoming President, for as
tlie year rolled round and the war closed,
and the President’s life became the forfeit
paiil to the fury of disloyalty, he would
have succeeded to the Presidency. Imagina
tion can only outline what Butler’s admin
istration would have been. That it would
have been far different from Andrew John
son's no man can well doubt; that it would
have been exactly what Lincoln’s would
have been no one can believe.
ORIGIN OF PHRASES.
“Cut a Dido,” “Gone to Pot,” “Done to
a Turn” and the Like.
There is probably more of the poetry of
tradition than truth of history in the fol
lowing paragraph from the Christian Un
Dido, Queen of Tyre, about seven centu
ries before Christ, after her husband had
been put to death by her brother, fled from
that city and established a colony on the
north coast of Africa. Having bargained
with the natives for as much land as could
be surrounded with a bull’s hide, she cut
the hide inso narrow strips, tied them to
gether, and claimed the land that could be
surrounded with the line thus made. She
was allowed to have her way, and now,
when one plays a sharp trick he is said to
“cut a dido.”
A tailor of Samarcand, Asia, who lived
on a street leading to the burying ground,
kept near his shop an earthen pot, in which
he was accustomed to deposit a pebble
whenever a body was carried to its final
resting place. Finally the tailor died, and
seeing the shop deserted, a person inquired
what had become of its former occupant.
“He has gone to pot himself,” was the reply
by one of the deceased’s neighbors.
During a battie between the Russians and
Tartars, a private soldier of the former
cried out: “Captain, I’ve caught a Tartar.”
“Bring him along,”' said the officer. “He
won’t let me,” was the response. Investiga
tion proved that the captive had the captor
by the arm. and would not allow him to
move. So “Catching a Tartar” is applica
ble to one who has found an antagonist too
powerful tor him.
While lying on the gridiron over a slow
fire, St. Lawrence —in whose honor the Es
curial was built by Philip I-L—said to the
Emperor, who was watching his sufferings:
‘‘Adhatus est ; jam versa et mancluea ,”
which one translator, not quite literally,
but appreciatively of the grim humor char
acterizing the original, rendered:
“This side enough is toasted,
Then turn me, tyrant, and eat;
And see whether raw or roasted
I am the better meat.”
Hence. “Done to a turn.”
Formerly in London, when a small dealer
bought bread of the baker, for every dozen
loaves purchased he was given an extra loaf
as his profit, from which circumstances “a
baker's dozen” signifies thirteen. Various
origins have been assigned the phrase, but
the above is the only one that is based on a
In a work, “Essays from the Desk of Poor
Robert, the Scribe,” published in 1815, the
author, C. Miner, tells the story of a boy
who, by the offer of liberal compensation,
was induced to turn a grindstone for a man
who desired to sharpen his ax. The
promised compensation was never paid,
and of one who disguises his own selfish
aims under an appearance of generosity or
disinterestdness it is remarked “He had an
ax to grind.”
An Elderly Tarantula and an Aged
From the Ph iladelphia Ledger.
In an interesting communication read by
the Rev. Dr. H. C. McCook before the last
meeting of the Academy of Natural Sciences
on the possibilities of prolonged life among
the lower orders of animals, an account was
given of the life history of a tine specimen
of the spider, commonly known as the
American tarantula. The animal was given
to him in 1882 by Dr. Joseph Leidy. It was
then apparently 18 months or 2 years old,
and it lived in captivity until July of the
present year. At the period of its
death, therefore, it must have been at
least 7 years old, aud may have been 8, hav
ing thus attained the distinction oi being
the most aged spider known to science.
How long this species and other spiders gen
erally live in their natural habitat is not
known, but human protection in tie present
instance probably aided to proiong life. It
was kept first in it glass globe and afterward
in a wooden box, with glazed sides and a
sliding glass door ut the top. One end was
filled with dry soil, which was slightly com
pacted and heaped up; the other end was
s] .arsely covered with earth. It was at all
times liberally supplied with water,
and its food consisted of live flies,
grasshoppers and locusts. During con
finement the tarantula shed its skin
several times, a process apparently attended
with some danger, as it was during such a
change the creature died, and once before,
on u similar occasion, it was found ap
parently dead, although it afterward re
vived. It is possible that it was too much
exhausted by long previous fasting to en
dure the severe strain which evidently is
laid uikjii the organism in the act of molt
ing. The spring of 1887 was a backward
one, and some difficulty was experienced in
procuring insects for food from the immedi
ate neighborhood. The annual supply of
grasshoppers and locusts was very late, and
it may be that had the spider been strength
ened by a few weeks’ generous feeding, pre
vious to its last molt, it might have been
In connection with the general sub ject of
the prolonged life of insects Dr. McCook
stated that during a recent visit to Sir Jobe
Lubbock at his h use in London he inquires l
after a xueeu of the fuscous ant which fie
had seen in an artificial formicary six
years ago, it being then nearly 8 years
old. He was told bv his host that it had
died the day before, having at the time
reached the wonderful age of more than 13
years. She was still attended by her circle
of courtiers. Some of these were licking
the dead queen or touching her with their
antenna' and making other demonstrations
as though soliciting her attention or desir
ing to wake her out of sleep. It was cer
tainly a touching sight to witness these
faithful attendants surrounding the dead
body of one who had so long presided over
the maternal destinies of the colony, and
seeking by their caresses to evoke tho atten
tion which never again could respond to

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1887.
MR. GARRETT’S GAME PRESERVES.
Artificial Breeding of English Pheas
ants for Sporting Purposes.
From the Baltimore Sun.
At Uplands, Mr. Robert Garrett’s country
residence, at tho junction of Edmondson
avenue and the old Frederick road, the
owner has established a miniature game
preserve. Up to the present the only game
on the preserve aro English pheasants, of
which there are abo t 200. The eggs were
imported from England about one year
since. The first lot, numbering several
hundred, failed to hatch, but a second
lot, that were packed under the
directions of Mr. Garrett’s gamekeeper,
produced good results. The eggs
were placed under common hens, and
when the birds were hatched they were
hand-raised and then turned loose on the
preserve, which consists of about twenty
five acres of wood and open land, inclosed
with a wire fence about 4 feet high. The
birds, though nearly grown, have not taken
to tho woodland, but disport themselves in
the open. The male birds are very beauti
ful, and present a tempting sight to would
be poachers as they run along the ground.
But the only poachers that the big, stalwart
game keeper has had to contend with so far
have been what he termed “varmints,"
which include coons, opossums, bats, rats,
weasels, etc., with now aud then u bird
hawk. The game keeper, who was
imported from England with the birds, is a
typical English keeper. A Yorkshire man
himself, he brought with him a Yorkshire
terrier, which assists him in his labors. The
birds ail know him. and do not appear much
frightened when he approaches them, and he
is careful not to let strangers go near them
unless he is in the lead. Immediately adjoin
ing his lodge he has enormous wire coops in
which he has a number of old birds that have
to be viewed from a distance, as the keeper
fears they would rise on the wing at the ap
proach of a stranger and kill themselves
against the wire covering. To avoid acci
dents of this kind a fine specimen of the
English bull terrier is stationed near the
coops, where he can keep guard in the ab
sence of the keeper. The little Yorkshire
terrier is thoroughly broken to his work.
He is the constant companion of his master,
and if any of the birds leave the inclosure
he finds them and cautiously assists to drive
them back. He will not let a stranger pick
up even an acorn from the ground, much
less handle a young bird. Scattered around
in the neighborhood of the birds are a num
ber of coops in which are confined common
hens with broods of young chickens. When
these chickens reach the proper age they will
be used for the purpose of hatching out
pheasants. \\ T hen the day for the shooting
arrives the birds will be scattered as much as
possible, and then the gamekeeper aud his
assistants will beat the cover, aud as the
birds fly over the sportsmen the air will be
tilled with shot holes, and the gamekeeper
will probably be instructed to bag enough
game for the lunch which follows the shoot
ing. At least that is the programme as in
terpreted by a geutlemau who claimed to
know all about the shooting business as con
ducted on game preserves.
NOBILITY IN TROUBLE.
A Young Man in Jail in Memphis
Whose Father s Sal- to be an k-arl.
From the Memphis Avalanche.
A handsome young man, with blonde hair
and whiskers, lies in the county jail, await
ing the result of his application In'- ■' new
trial on a three-years’ sentence p; sel upon
him last week for picking the poc .of the
Clerk of the Chancery Court of Carroll of
more than $l5O during the visit of the Pres
ident to Memphis.
The young man’s name is Kenwood, or at
least that is the name he gave the police
who arrested him, and he is as bright and
wide awake a citizen as has been within the
clutches of tne law here for many a day.
He has maintained his self-possession
throughout, and has never betrayed the
slightest nervousness, though the proof was
almost dead agianst him from the begin
ning, and Judge Dußose publicly censured
the jury for bringing in so light a sentence.
Yesterday Gen. P. M. Turner, who de
fended Kenwood, said: “He is the black
sheep of a noble English family, and his
father is an earl whose name is known
throughout England. Of that I am con
vinced by proofs which Ido not care to
make public. He has a married sister living
in Toronto, Can., who is prominently iden
tified with the Canadian government, and
it is with this family that we have had our
“How was it brought about?’
“So soon as Kenwood found he was in
serious trouble, he asked that the fact be
telegraphed the Bank of Toronto, and said
he could get financial aid from that source.”
“Did he receive a reply?’
“Yes, and a very prompt one.”
“How did it read?"
“To the effect that any amount of money
that might be necessary to seem e bond for
Kenwood would be forthcoming at once,
aud I think that this at least establishes his
claim to wealthy relatives or friends,
whether they be titled ones or not.”
After the receipt of this telegram Ken
wood’s attorneys appeared before the court
and asked to be allowed to deposit $ 1,500 in
cash for his release and as a bond for his ap
pearance when next wanted for trial.
“I will not take it,” said Judge Dußose,
“so there’s an er.d of the matter.”
“But your honor,” said the prisoner’s
counsel, “supixisc he never comes back, the
$1,500 will be $.500 a year for his services,
which will be more than he will be worth to
the State if forced to serve out the time for
which he has been sentence 1.”
“I don’t care,” replied Judge Dußose: “no
money will be taken a s -purity bv this
court. If I were to turn that man out on
$1,500 forfeit he would steal five times that
amount from honest people in the same
length of time.” And the son of an earl, or
whoever he may be, will, in ail likelihood,
serve his term as a common thief, in spite
of all his rich relations and influential
Pulling Teeth with Oxide Gas.
From a Few York Letter.
It was the iirst and only time that I ever
took nitrous-oxide-gas. The next tooth out
will have been the socoud. The rubber hag
was attached. I lay back in the chair com
posed. The moutli"piece was applied. The
iirst sensations of the gas were peculiarly
peculiar. You know how it is youi'self.
Completely under its influence, I became an
immense bombshell, and was placed in one
of the largest of siege mortars. It was be
fore Yorktown. The lanyard was pulled
and the mortar discharged with a terrific,
to me, stunning report. The shell—that is
I—was fired aloft witli the velocity of a
well oiled streak of lightning. I felt my
self flying through tile heavens above.
The fuse burned. I was not on a “starring
tour,” but “what goes up must come down.
I reached the highest possible altitude, and,
maki g a graceful curve prepared to de
scend. I was about to burst. I felt the fire
of the fuse as it burned down to the iron
shell. I was descending as rapidly as I had
gone up. Why did I not burst?
Still downward, downward, down
ward I rushed, until I felt i should strike
the ground without bursting—a terrible
calamity. I lelt the fuse burn into the hole
in the iron shell and thought, “Hurrah!
Now I am going to burst.” “No, 111 not
burst.” “But I cannot lielp myself.” “I
must burst,’ Then a feeling of “I don’t
care a whether I burst or not” came
over me, and I did burst into smithereens,
with an intense feeling of relief as I flew
into tid-bits and tenderloins. When I was
relieved from the effect of the gas I found
that the first pull the dentist had marie he
pulled the whole crown of the tooth off.
That was when the mortar was discharged.
Then he cut around the roots, and I felt the
sensation of soaring aloft. In the mean
time the fuse burned. Finally the dentist
affixed his instrument of torture, and with
one mighty effort severed my whole head
from the roots of the tooth. The shell burst.
The sensations were as real as though 1 had
been a living bombshell, and yet were not
unpleasant. There was a feeling of aban
don about it all that was enjoyable. I ex
perienced no ill effect.
