s an Egyptian, rather a sullen fellow; I think his name was Selim. His wife, a pleasant young woman, died during the march, One evening, going his usual round amongst the men, he saw Selim's little boy, the child with the sallow face, and large, mort, as though overlooked. The next day, Stanley sent for Selim's baby, and there on a mat at his tent door, the child sat he told me. Some weeks later, Stanley was informed that Selim was a goeegoee, a lazy fellow, and that he had thrown his gedition depended on their being able to defend themselves.

We thought of the six hundred who rode into the "Valley of Death" during the Crimean war, and were immortalized by Tennyson — of Job's war-horse, which snuffed the battle afar off — of McDonald and Selim — and of all the "pride and pomp and circumstance of glorious war, which make ambition virtue." Surely, there is nothing so grand and magnificent as a charge of Cavalry. The battalion we saw went into camp near this c
