Excerpt from The Jar of Olives: A Play in Four Acts From the Arabian Nights, Given by the National School of Elocution and Oratory, Philadelphia, March, 1914

After Ali's departure Houssain courts and wins Badoura. At a feast he gives to Badoura, the Caliph, the ruler of Bagdad, disguised as a merchant, is present. Houssain, to please Badoura, opens the jar of olives, and finds them spoiled. After his guests have gone Houssain discovers and appropriates the gold. The jar is refilled with fresh olives. Ali, given up for dead, unexpectedly returns, demands his jar, and receives - only olives. He accuses Houssain before the Cadi, but has no proof. Thereupon Assad, a youth, assures the Caliph, still disguised, that he could prove Houssain guilty. The Caliph puts Assad in the seat of the Cadi (magistrate), and the case is retired. Assad proves by olive merchants that the olives in the jar are less than a year old. They cannot therefore be those that Ali left with Houssain four years ago. Houssain confesses, the Caliph commands him to return the treasure, and the fickle Badoura loses both her lovers.

Scene. - Room in Ali Cogia's house. Bare walls of neutral tint. Floor covered with rugs; packing cases and straw littered about.
