Transcript ■UHI SINAI ;i i lopi is the case with other like trees. The tree is left to grow naturally, and the pods even (which when ripe form a favourite food for the camels) are only shaken off after the permission of the saint has been asked at his tomb. Wady ' A ley at, that right-arm valley which stretches down from Serbal, is filled with dark green acacia-trees, and at the upper end are small groves of palm. 1 lere, from beneath a great white boulder, rises a tiny mountain stream amidst moss and fern. Near this spot the Arabs point out a hole, in which they say that once a large treasure wras discovered by a Maghrabi soothsayer; just as the) say that on El Maharrad, from the cave or well on the north side there ommunication with vaults beneath the convent ruins, where there are stores of wheat and treasures of immense wealth. I bill" way Up the Valley there is, as at Sinai, a mountain called Jebel Moneijah -the M Mount of the Conference." To this mount the Arabs attach more sanctity than to Serbal itself for every ir they sacrifice to Moses on it. There is an enclosure of roucrh stones on the summit where they deposit votive offerings, beads, human hair, camel ropes, &c. A little before one turns out of the way in order to climb Jebel Moneijah, on the western side, is the mouth of a valley called Xakheleh. It is possible by following it to cross over the watershed into Wady 'Ajeleh. There are remains 0 ot an ancient causeway, along the sides of which are to be seen a number of Sinaitic inscriptions.
