MAN, traveling in the desert, met a woman standing alone and terribly dejected.
"Even so," returned the stranger, nothing daunted by this cold reception; "I have tarried at 'Edward' a week, and I should be dumb not to have inquired the road I was to journey; and if dumb there would be an end to my calling." After simpering in a small way, like one whose modesty prohibited a more open expression of his admiration of a witticism that was perfectly unintelligible to his hearers, he continued, "It is not prudent for any one of my profession to be too familiar with those he has to instruct; for which reason I follow not the line of the army; besides which, I conclude that a gentleman of your character has the best judgment in matters of wayfaring; I have, therefore, decided to join company, in order that the ride may be made agreeable, and partake of social communion."

The next morning they resumed their wayfaring
, hungry and jaded, and had a dogged march of eighteen miles among the same kind of hills.

There were no women or children, as she had seen in other gipsy camps they had passed in their wayfaring
, and but one gipsy--a tall athletic man, who stood with his arms folded, leaning against a tree at a little distance off, looking now at the fire, and now, under his black eyelashes, at three other men who were there, with a watchful but half-concealed interest in their conversation.
A dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring
, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting.
Cling to me, press me close on either side, There rest ye from your dreary wayfaring
. Now tell me of your ventures, but in brief; Brief speech suffices for young maids like you.
At mid-day, after talk and a little wayfaring
, they slept; meeting the world refreshed when the air was cooler.
