Her eyes were large and black, with the amorous lid, and lined with kohl beneath the lower lash. Her profile showed the ex- quisite aquiline of the pure-blooded Egyptian. Aside from the visible evidences of charm there was an atmosphere of femininity that permeated her imme- diate vicinity with a witchery little short of enchant- page: 38 [View Page 38] Switch to Image Mode CLOSE Page 38 ment.
The Egyptian accompanying the litter was nearly thirty years of age. He was an example of the other type of the race, differing from the classic model of Kenkenes. The forehead retreated, the nose was long, low, slightly depressed at the end; the mouth, thick- lipped; the eye, narrow and almond-shaped; the cheek- bones, high; the complexion, dark brown. Still, the great ripeness of lip, aggressive whiteness of teeth and brilliance of eye made his face pleasant. He wore a shenti of yellow, over it a kamis of white linen, a kerchief bound with a yellow cord about his head, and white sandals.
He was the nephew of the king's cup-bearer, who had died without issue at Thebes during the past month.

His elder brother had succeeded his father to a high office in the priesthood, but he, Nechutes, was a candidate for the honors of his dead uncle. Kenkenes gave the man a smiling nod and bent over the lady's fingers. A high office. He had a voice of profound depth and resonance, that rumbled like the purring of the king's lions. Never would Ta-meri have said anything so bald.

Now, when she is moved to give me a honeyed fact, she laps it with delicate intimation, layer on layer like a lotus-bud. And only under the warm interpretation of my heart will it unfold and show the gold within. Nechutes stifled a derisive groan, but the lady's color swept up over her face and made it like the dawn. But, Kenkenes," she broke off, "thou art wasted in thy narrow realm.
They need thy gallant tongue at court.
A whole moon! During this pretty joust the brows of the prospec- tive cup-bearer had knitted blackly. The scowl was unpropitious. Being in highest favor, it behooves thee to be generous. But the prospective cup-bearer refused to be pla- cated. He rumbled an order to the slaves and they shouldered the litter. She nodded a bright farewell to him, and they moved away. The sculptor, still smiling, continued down to the river. At the landing he engaged one of the numerous small boats awaiting a passenger, and directed the clout-wearing boatman to drop down the stream.
But presently the frontier of the desert laid down a gray and yellow dead-line over which no domestic plant might strike its root and live. But the arable tracts were velvet green with young grain, the verdant level broken here and there by a rustic's hut, under two or three close-standing palms. Even from the surface of the Nile the checkered ap- pearance of the country, caused by the various kids of products, was noticeable. Egypt was the most fertile land in the world.

However, as the light bari climbed and dipped on the little waves toward the north the Arabian hills began to approach the river. Their fronts became abrupt and showed the edges of stratum on stratum of white stone. About their bases were quantities of rubble and gray dust slanting against their sides in slides and drifts. Across the narrowing strip of fer- tility square cavities in rows showed themselves in the white face of the cliffs.
The ruins of a number of squat hovels were barely discernible over the wheat. He effected a landing at a bedding of masonry on which a wharf had once been built. The rock was now over- run with riotous marsh growth. The quarries had not been worked for half a cen- tury. The thrifty husbandman had cultivated his nar- row field within a few feet of the Nile, and the road- way that had once led from the ruined wharf toward the hills was obliterated by the grain. Kenkenes alighted and struck through the wheat toward the pitted front of the cliffs.
After much winding the ravine terminated in a wide pocket, a quarter of a mile inland. Exit from this cul-de-sac was possible toward the east by a steep slope leading to the top of one of the interior ridges of the desert. Kenkenes did not pause at the cluster of houses. The roofs had fallen in and the place was quite unin- habitable. But he leaped up into the little valley and followed it to its end.
There he climbed the sharp declivity and turned back in the direction he had come, along the flank of the hill that formed the north wall of the gorge. The summit of the height was far above him, and the slope was covered with limestone masses. There had been no frost nor rain to disturb :the original rock-piling. Only the agencies of sand and wind had disarranged the distribution on which the builders of the earliest dynasty had looked.
And this was weird, mysterious and labyrinthine.
At a spot where a great deal of broken rock encum- bered the ground, Kenkenes unslung his wallet and tested the fragments with chisel and mallet. It was the same as the quarry product—magnesium lime- stone, white, fine, close-grained and easily worked. But it was broken in fragments too small for his pur- pose. Above him were fields of greater masses. On reaching them he found that those blocks which appeared from a distance to weigh less than a ton, were irregular cubes ten feet high.
At that moment his eyes fell on a block of proper dimensions under the very shadow of the great cube upon which he stood. It was in the path of the wind from the north and was buried half its height in sand. Its location was particularly favorable to secrecy. It stood at the lower end of an aisle between great rocks.
All view of it was cut off, save from that posi- tion taken by Kenkenes when he discovered it. A wall built between it and the north would bar the sand and ".
