AMONG THE FORCES
Fairies, fays, genii, sprites, etc., were once supposed to be helpful
to some favored men. The stories about these imaginary beings have
always had a fascinating interest. The most famous of these stories
were told at Bagdad in the eleventh century, and were called _The
Arabian Nights' Entertainment_. Then men were said to use all sorts of
obedient powers, sorceries, tricks, and genii to aid them in getting
wealth, fame, and beautiful brides.
But I find the realities of to-day far greater, more useful and
interesting, than the imaginations of the past. The powers at work
about us are far more kindly and powerful than the Slave of the Ring or
of the Lamp.
