said (hat his soul was lost in melan

whether the sun set at noon or staid up
until seven o'clock. He entered the
Indies' waiting-room at the depot,
walked up to a woman whose husband
tied left the room tbout ten minute pre

"Madam, your hushand went out to
Me the river, didn't he?"
"Ye. why?" she asked, turning
pale in an instant.
"lie was a tall man, wasn't he?"
"lie was,'' she replied, rising up and
tinning still paler.
"Had red hair?"
"He had ohl what has happened?"
"Weighed about one hundred and

OUR FOREIGN CORRESPONDENCE.
Cairo, Eg vpt, Aug. 15, 1S7S.
Editok West Shore: The ro
mance and poetry incident to visiting
an oriental city, like Cairo for example,
is fast turning into a plain matter of
fact prose. One meets so many Euro
peans and Americans on every street
and at almost every turn, he feels con
vinced of the fact that the oriental ele
ment is rapidly deteriorating and giv
ing place to the persistent inroads of
modern innovations. This city is
neither altogether ancient nor quite
modem; it is neither Pharonic, Bedouin
nor yet Turkish. The Boreal, the
Austral, the Oriental and the Occiden
tal, typifying the ends of the earth,
come together here in strange and most
fantastic contrast. While many of the
little towns along the upper Nile are
excessively Egyptian, Cairo is surely
donning a complete cosmopolitan out
lit. Veritable cigar stands, barefooted
boot-blacks and yelling news-boys help
amazingly towards beguiling the tour
ist into the pleasant belief that he is
walking the streets of San Francisco.
New York, Liverpool or London.
One of the first aims of a newly ar
rived traveler is to get a sitrht of the
city and its surroundings from the cita
del, the point from which the artist has
taken our faithful illustration. Look
ing towards the east from this stand
point, the eye takes in an arid land
scape of monotonous hue. Even the
gloomy buildings take upon themselves
the color of the sandy wastes that com
prehend the intermediate spaces. From
the verge of the burning horizon to a
point within several miles of the city,
not so much as a leaf of vegetation can
be descried. Nearer at hand, how
ever, the Obelisks of Heliopoles, mag
nificent Mosques, airy Minarets and the
Sepulchres of the Caliphs come into
welcome view.
The above mentioned Senulchres are
situated in a cemeterv hplnno-;r,
suburb of the city called Bcladcensen.
Looking southeasterly, ugly sandhills
and dilapidated mounds in strange
WMWOn meet the eye. Towards the
south is even a grander scene of deso
Wton, If so we might use the term. In
