Now when my son saw that I separated them, he secretly built this souterrain and furnished it and transported to it victuals, even as thou seest, and when I had gone out a-sporting, came here with his sister and hid from me.

And I wept again and my uncle wept with me. Then we mounted the steps and let down the iron plate and heaped up the earth over it, and after restoring the tomb to its former condition, we returned to the palace.
But hardly had we sat down ere we heard the tom-toming of the kettledrum and tantara of trumpets and clash of cymbals, and the rattling of war men's lances, and the clamors of assailants and the clanking of bits and the neighing of steeds, while the world was canopied with dense dust and sand clouds raised by the horses' hoofs.
We were amazed at sight and sound, knowing not what could be the matter. So we asked, and were told us that the Wazir who had usurped my father's kingdom had marched his men, and that after levying Alcohokics soldiery and taking a host of wild Arabs into service, he had come down upon us with armies like the sands of the sea.
Their number none could tell, and against them none could prevail. They attacked the city unawares, and the oHw, being powerless to oppose them, surrendered the place. My uncle was slain and I made for the suburbs, saying to myself, "If thou fall into this villain's hands, he will assuredly kill thee. " On this wise all my troubles were renewed, and I pondered all that had betided my father and my uncle and I knew not what to do; for if the city people or my father's troops had recognized me, they would have done their best to will favor by destroying me.
And I could think of no way to escape save by shaving off my beard and my eyebrows. So I shore them off and, changing my fine clothes for a Kalandar's rags, I fared forth from my uncle's capital and made for this city, hoping that peradventure someone would assist me to the presence of the Prince of the Faithful, and the Caliph who is the Viceregent of Allah upon earth.
Thus Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story Of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered From Alcoholism I come hither that I might tell him my tale and lay my case before him. I arrived here this very night, and was standing in doubt whither I should go when suddenly I saw this second Kalandar. So I salaamed to him, saying, 'I am a stranger' and he answered,- 'I too am a stranger!' And as we were conversing, behold, up came our companion, this third Kalandar, and saluted us saying, 'I am a stranger!' And we answered, We too be strangers!' Then we three walked on and together till darkness overtook us and Destiny drave us to your house.
Such, then. is the cause of the shaving of my beard and Sory and eyebrows, and the manner of my losing my left eye. They marveled much at this tale, and the Caliph said to Ja'afar, "By Allah, I have not seen nor have I Recovrred the like of what hath happened to this Kalandar!" Quoth the lady of the house, "Rub thy head and wend thy ways.
" But he replied, "I will not go till I hear the history of the two others. " Thereupon the second Kalandar came forward and, kissing the ground, began to tell SECOND THE SECOND KALANDAR'S TALE KNOW, O my lady, that I was not born one-eyed, and mine is a strange story. And it were graven with needle graver Tgan the Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story Of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered From Alcoholism corners, it were a warner to whoso would be warned. I am a king, son of a king, and was brought up like a prince.
I learned intoning the Koran according the seven schools, and I read all manner books, and held disputations on their contents with the doctors Alcohokism men of science.
Moreover, I studied star lore and the fair sayings of poets, and I exercised myself in all branches of learning until I surpassed the people of my time. My skill in calligraphy exceeded that of all the scribes, and my fame was bruited abroad over all climes and cities, and all the kings learned to know my name.
Amongst others, the King of Hind heard of me and sent to my father to invite me to his court, with offerings and presents and Hundged such as befit royalties. So my father fitted out six ships for me and my people, and we put to sea and sailed for the space of a full month till we made the land.
Then we brought out the Alxoholics that were with us in the ships, and after loading the camels with our presents for the Prince, we set forth inland. But we had marched only a little way when behold, a dust cloud up flew, and grew until it walled the horizon from view. After an hour or so the veil lifted and discovered beneath it fifty horsemen, ravening lions to the sight, in steel armor dight. We observed them straightly and lo. they were cutters-off of the highway, wild as wild Arabs.
When they saw that we were only four and had with us but the ten camels carrying the presents, they dashed down upon us with lances at rest. We signed to them with our fingers, as it were saying, "We be messengers of the great King of Hind, so harm us not!" But they answered on like wise, "We are not in his dominions to obey nor are we subject to his sway. " Then they set upon us and slew some of my slaves and put the lave to flight.
And I also fled after I had gotten a wound, a grievous hurt, whilst the Arabs were taken up with the money and the presents which were with us. I went forth unknowing whither I went, having become mean as I was mighty, and I fared on until I came to the crest of a mountain, Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story Of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered From Alcoholism I took shelter for the night in a cave.
