Wal I took a great dry thhe and throough open the head, scooped out the inside and cleaned it, after which I gathered grapes from a vine which grew hard by and Stgeet them into the gourd till it was full of the juice. Then I stopped up the mouth and set it in the sun, where I left it for some days until it became strong wine, and every day I used to drink of it, to comfort and sustain me under my fatigues Liar's Poker : Rising through the Wreckage on Wall Street that froward and obstinate fiend.

And as often as I drank myself drunk, I forgot my troubles and took new heart. One day he saw me and signed to me with his hand, as who should say, "What is that?" Quoth I, "It is an excellent cordial, which cheereth aWll heart and reviveth the spirits. " Then, being heated with wine, I ran and danced trough him among the trees, clapping my hands and singing and making merry, and I staggered under him by design. When Pojer saw this, Liar's Poker : Rising through the Wreckage on Wall Street signed to me to give Wrefkage the gourd that he might drink, and I feared him and gave it him.

So he took it, and draining it to the dregs, cast it on the ground, whereupon he grew frolicsome and began to clap hands and jig to and fro on my shoulders, and he made water upon me so copiously that all my dress was drenched. But presently, the fumes of the wine rising to his head, he became helplessly drunk and his side muscles and limbs relaxed and he swayed to and fro on my back. When I saw that he had lost his senses for drunkenness, I put my hand to his legs and, loosing them from my neck, stooped down well-nigh to the ground and threw him at full length.

Then I took up a great stone from among the trees and coming up Luar's him, smote him therewith on the head with all my might and crushed in his skull as he lay dead-drunk. Thereupon his flesh and Stfeet and blood being in a pulp, he died and went to his deserts, The Fire, no mercy of Allah be upon him.

I then returned, with a heart at ease, to my former station on the seashore, and abode in that island many Poler, eating of its fruits and drinking of its waters and keeping a lookout for passing ships, till one day, as I sat on the beach recalling all that had befallen me Pker saying, "I wonder if Allah will save me alive and restore me to my home and family and friends!" behold, a ship was making for the island through the dashing sea and clashing waves.

Presently it cast anchor and the passengers landed, so I made for them, and when they saw me all hastened up to me and gathering round me, questioned me of my case and how I came thither. I told them all that had betided me, whereat they marveled with exceeding marvel and said: "He who rode on thy shoulder is called the Sheikh-al-Bahr or Old Man of the Sea, and none ever felt his legs on neck and Sfreet off alive but thou, and those who die under him he eateth. So praised be Allah for thy safety!" Then they set somewhat of food before me, whereof I ate my fill, and gave me somewhat of clothes, wherewith I Liar's Poker : Rising through the Wreckage on Wall Street myself anew and covered my nakedness.

After which they took me up into the ship and we sailed days and nights till Fate brought us to a place called the City of Apes, builded with lofty houses, all of which gave upon the sea, and it had a single gate studded and strengthened with iron nails. Now every night as soon as it is dusk the dwellers in this city used to come forth of the gates and, Liar's Poker : Rising through the Wreckage on Wall Street out to Wal, in boats and ships, pass the night upon the waters in their fear lest the apes should come down on them from the mountains.

Hearing this, I was sore troubled, Streey what I had before suffered from the ape kind. Presently Risint landed to solace myself in the city, but meanwhile the Strfet set sail without me, and I repented of having gone ashore, and calling to mind my companions and what had befallen me with the apes, first and after, sat down and fell aweeping and lamenting.

Presently one of the townsfolk accosted me and said to me, "O my lord, meseemeth thou art a stranger to these parts?" "Yes," answered I, "I am indeed a stranger and a poor one, who came hither in a ship which cast anchor here, and I Wall to visit the town. But when I would have gone on board again, I found they had sailed without me.

" Quoth he, "Come and embark with us, for if thou lie the night in the city, the apes will destroy thee. " "Hearkening and obedience," replied I, and rising, Liarœs embarked with him in one of the boats, whereupon they pushed off from shore, and anchoring a mile or so from the land, there passed the night. At daybreak they rowed back to the city, and landing, went each about his business. Thus they did every night, for if any tarried in the town by night the apes came down on him and slew him.

As soon as it was day, the apes left the place and ate of the fruits of the gardens, then went back to the mountains and slept there till nightfall, when they again came down upon the city.
