Transcript ^^BHte^BHei^H ^..TiY ■•'. % CAIRO. 399 Carrying the eye towards the north, a shining line is seen roughly dividing the old city from the new. This is El-Khalig, or " the Canal" par excellence (see page 394), which divides Cairo longitudinally from north-east to south-west into two strongly contrasted portions. West of the canal and next the Nile, the deforming touch of the khedivial bricklayer has ruined everything. East of the canal the old Muslim city of the Fatimis still retains its picturesque character, and as we enter it we may almost forget for the moment that there ever was such a person as Isma'il, the ex- Khedive, or such civilising agents as railways and frockcoats and the opera bouffe.

This game exercises the powers of calculation, and \$ ol ***> I he i \ y not only for the coffee drunk by himself and his antagonist, but by the spectators of tIM ^ame.
