Transcript SINAI 279 The Fellahin transpose all this and give a far different version. They say- " What is the townsman ? The sultan of the world. What is the Fellah? The donkey of the world. What is the Bedawy ? The dog of the world, for he snatches from everybody, but nobody dares to snatch from him." These two following stories told by Mrs. Finn are, I think, good ones. An acquaintance of hers among the Fellahin came one day with this strange tale : — " Fatimeh tells me that there has been a robbery in her village, and that they called in a Bedawy to find out the thief. He heated an iron and branded the tongue of every man, woman, and child, telling them that the tongue of the thief would swell, and that he would then make him pay the value of the theft. All their tongues (of course swelled, and he made them pay the money between them/ The other story runs thus :—" A Bedawy and a Fellah arrived at a village at the same time and repaired to the " Sakha " (public guest-room). Supper was set before them, and the Bedawy observed that it was only enough for one. ROCKS IN THE RAVINE OF SARABIT EL KHADIM. And a natural gallery in the same ravine. Wind and storm have worn these sandstone rocks into the most fantastic shapes.
