THE TWO SERPENTS:

AN ORIENTAL APOLOGUE.

SAHEB, a learned doctor, being entrusted by the Sultan of Carizme with the education of his son, received orders to relate daily to him some apposite anecdote, with a view to form the morals of the young prince. He accordingly, among others, recounted the following, which is taken from the Annals of Persia.

[ocr errors]

A magician presented himself before King Zohak, and performed several feats in presence of his court, with which the prince was equally surprized and delighted.

"King of kings," said the enchanter, "these are but the common tricks of my art, and scarcely deserv ing your royal attention; but if you will permit me to blow twice into your sacred ear, you will instantly perceive something far more wonderful," He had no sooner asked, and obtained what he wanted, than Zohak, after feeling an extraordinary motion within him, rather violent however than painful in its nature, be held two serpents' heads issuing from the region of the heart.

"Perfidious wretch!" exclaimed his majesty, "what have I done to thee? Why has thy impure breath produced within my bowels two monsters, now ready to devour them?"
