"BE sure you tell me nothing but what is true, or I shall clip thy wings," said Maimoune (in the story of Camaralzaman) to the genie, who had just arrived from the utmost limits of China. Here are a few favourite tales out of the many told in the "Thousand and One Nights," which are just as true as romancer or genie ever told. They are the best, too, of all those tales from Arabia, India, or China, if we measure them by the fame they have gained beyond their fellow-stories in our Western world. They include "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp," "Sinbad the Sailor," and others just as engrossing, which have been told more often to English youngsters than any stories in all the world's ken, save those, like "Jack the Giant Killer" and "Tom Tit-Tot," that are British or English and home-made.
