A laddin was the son of a poor widow. One day a wicked magician niet him and said,
"Take this ring and come with me. If you do as I say you will be well rewarded."
Aladdin followed him for a long distance. At last the magician stopped and pointing to
a stone, said, "Lift up that stone, and you will see a ladder. Go down the ladder, open the door
and keep walking until you come to a beautiful garden. There you will find a little lamp which
I want you to bring to me."
Aladdin climbed down. At last he came to the beautiful garden where he found rare,
precious jewels. He picked up the lamp, which was burning, and taking as many jewels as he
could carry, went back to the ladder. The magician saw him and cried, "Hand mb the lamp."
But Aladdin answered, ,,Not until you help me get up out of here." The magician angrily closed
.the great stone down and left Aladdin there to die. Poor Aladdin wept bitterly. Without knowing
it, he rubbed the ring which the magician had given him. To his surprise, a genie appeared. "I
am the slave of the ring," he cried. "What do

to marry my son to the emperor's daughter." "I will help you," said the genie, "I will bring
you rare jewels from ny garden. When the emperor holds court, cast them at his feet and he
will be ready to give his consent to the marriage."
The mother did as she was bid and the emperor was so pleased with the gifts, that
he told her to bring Aladdin to the palace at once. Aladdin went dressed in beautiful garments
brought by the genie. He married the princess and the genie built them a beautiful palace.
One day, an old man passed the palace gate and cried, "New lamps for old ones!" The
princess gave the old lamp in exchange for a new one. As soon as she handed it to the
wicked magician, for it was he dressed as an old man, she and her palace disappeared. Aladdin
was in despair when he returned and found his wife and home gone. He called the slave of
%he ring to help him. The slave said, "I will take you to them but more I cannot do."
One day the princess looking through the window, was overjoyed to behold Aladdin
standing at the gate. Together they planned to get the lamp from the magician.
The princess invited the magician to tea. Deligted he came but before handing him his
cup, the princess dropped a sleeping powder into it. He fell asleep at once. Aladdin, who
had been watching from behind a curtain, now came forward and took the lamp from the
magician and rubbed it.
