In the Realms of Gold
“Much have I traveled in the realms of gold."
Yare, yare! Tlie pilot is at the wheel. We are off to the
unknown—to a Dutch garden, to mystic India, to the republic of
the bees, to classic Cambridge, or to the prairies of Dakota, golden
In the Dutch garden we see Prunella falling in love with
Pierrot in spite of the strict guardian aunts who hire a small boy
to drive the birds away lest Prunella see their courtship and get
ideas in her head. Such a dainty lovemaking! Such pathos and
To go to India with Tagore would be an exalting experience
which we can approximate in reading the Gitanjali. We shall see
dark-eyed maidens light their festal lamps, we shall smell the
lotus flower; and the mystery and beauty of oriental night will
enfold us while the poet sings in tender tones of str.mge, high
Maeterlinck will be our guide in the city of the bees. W'ith
affection and poetic insight lie will show us the ways of these
little brown ])eoplh who store up a bright golden hoard iii a struc

He will give us a sense of destiny and awe while he reveals the
.age-old pattern of the lives of these tiny individuals, all inspired
with an altruistic passion for the well-being of their republic.
Hugh Walpole will take us to a football game, or to a boat
race on the Cam, or behind the “sported oaks” of Cambridge stu

chaps, Olva Dune and Cardillac. With Olva IXine we shall ])ass
through a great experi(”uce—one that sifted his soul and found
Nearer home, but not less entrancing are the limitless prairies.
The rough, vital epic of their development, with its cruelties and
tragedies, its fierce joys and its bitter defeats is only beginning
to be sung. Holvaag'—emigrant, pioneer, artist—keen of percep

The woman with joy raised her
hands and gave her oath:
“I swear by Prophet, by his beard,
by the moon and stars, that no
mortal will ever hear a word about
what we will see here. I.et the sea
swallod us if I break my oath.
After an hour the young man
was in the palace, and still an hour
later returned to his home with rich
gifts, the first of all barbers who
after touching the head of the
sovereign did not lose his owM.

kisses and tears of joy and it seemed

Her son had much work, since he
was the only barber in the city, but
soon he noticed that something was
wrong with his mother.
“Tell me, mother, what happened
to you?” he asked, “I will do any
thing for you.”
She cried, and sobbed a long time,
but refused to say anything, when at
last she said, “Oh, my son, if I do
not know what you saw in .Shah’s
palace, I will not live any more.”
“Mother, mother, but you gave an
oath that we would not tell it to
“But my son, I swore that I would
not tell to anyone else, but we both
are like one person, if vou will not

"I will tell you all, but don’t for

sang and worked all the day. But
two days later the mystery was a
heavy burden for her. At first it
was down, then it turned to wool.
Her son watched her carefully
and warned, “Remember the oath,

some water home. She bent over it
and far down saw her own reflection.
She could not resist the temptation
“.Shah has horns.”
Her words resounded so loud in
the well, that she shivered, but at
the same time she felt such delight
and relief, that she could not resist
the temptation any more and began
to repeat louder and louder:
“Yes! yes! Shah has horns!”
But what is this? Sihe heard
some sound in, the well that became
louder and louder. The water blus

and soon ran out of the well.
Soon not only the house of the
widow, but the whole town and later
all the valley was overflown and all
living creatures perished.
That is why it is so calm here;
this is the grave of jierjurers. Let
be cursed the memory of Shah, who
