Excerpt from The Mamelukes, Vol. 2 of 3: A Romance of Life in Grand Cairo

Just under a small hillock, in the desert, was placed a stone above another, surmounted by an earthen jar, and a young cavalier, examining his pistols to see if they were in order, pre pared for a course; and the other cavaliers making way for him, but allowing a clear view for the inmates of a tent pitched here - he stuck the pointed spur-stirrups into the ?ank of his horse, and darting forward, fired the pistol at the jar; and throwing it over his shoulder, while a cord attached to its butt pre vented it from falling on the ground; he then discharged another pistol at the same mark, but both, without taking effect, lodged in the sand hill behind.

What are you dreaming of, Ali said the grandee in the tent, impatiently. So many chances you have had, and not one hit; I see what matters will turn to - this new generation will fall off, and become good for nothing. If the Emir Yahia arrives and sees such exercises as these, he will think I have got a set of Copts or Jews for my Mamelukes. Open your eyes.
