PART IV - THE EAST
CHAPTER I - SALUTE TO THE ORIENT!

that has to be explained. Here, for instance, come two queer afrits ; let us survey them through the eyes of Said the fisherman.
` One of these, whose face had somewhat the colour of a pomegranate flower, insisted on grasping Said's hand and shaking it, which is a manner of friendly greeting with the Franks. He laughed heartily with his mouth open, staring into Said's face with stupid blue eyes. His companion, who kept his face-pink and white like a painted woman's-carefully shaded by a very broad-brimmed hat, held a little aloof, but laughed heartily too. The, moustache of this latter was yellow like straw.'

And here is an article of mysterious purport and of high artistry, possibly the work of jinns.

` Said fell to examining its frame-work, sitting on his heels and exclaiming " Ma sh'Allah !" under his breath. It was almost like a table standing on six iron legs ; but four of the legs reached above it as well as below, and each was crowned by a little knob like an orange, of some burnished material he took for gold. A wonderful thing ! It was long ere he could tear himself away from the marvel.'

Yet it is only a bed, such as we may see in the Tottenham Court Road, and the afrit with a face like a pomegranate flower was only you or I. The angle of vision remains steady, in book after book, and not until Veiled Women is there a hint of fatigue. The vision embraces more than trivialities ; it can achieve a full length portrait. How true, for example, is the psychology of the young Englishman in The Valley of the Kings, but how strange, because we see him through the eyes of Iskender, his Syrian follower ! We endorse and yet we are amazed. This is the story : Iskender is a nobody, a Mission waif, who receives some politeness from the English tourist, and in return gives his heart, his fortune, and all that he can command in this world and the next with the exception of verbal accuracy. Pleased and amused with the alliance, the Englishman rejects the advice of the Old Residents, who duly warn him that no Oriental can be trusted, and he goes far into the desert with Iskender to find some gold. There is no gold. Iskender only dreamt of it, and worked the dream into a reality to pleasure his beloved master. But the Englishman
