Alan chaffingly said that hethought Rajpoots were much to be envied, and manyEnglishmen would be glad if they could shut their women-kihd up within four stone walls. The Maharaja took himquite seriously, and said, You are quite wrong. Youwould find that you wanted your wife to go about with youand be your companion. They told me a story of anEnglishwoman trying to convince a high-caste Purdah ladyof the absurdity of covering her face in public. Mem-sahib, said the Ranee, it is our dustoor (custom), but itis not our custom to hide our feet. We think it no shameto go about bare-footed. You do. How would you liketo walk down the big street in Calcutta with your legsbare to the knee ? Well, we should feel just the sameif we showed our faces. I cannot help thinking that dustoor is a convenient word, and covers as many sins THE BROTHER OF THE MAHARAJA OF CHAMBA. 125

After taking leave of the Maharanee I returned to thepublic garden, and found the Raja, Bhurie Singh, and Alanwaiting for me to play tennis. Both of our friends, the Rajaespecially, play an excellent game, and have a better cuttingservice than many English amateurs. Several of the towns-people stood around and watched us ; and the steps of theadjoining bandstand were crowded with children in brightcoloured dresses. They followed the game with evidentinterest. The Maharajas band was in attendance, andplayed the latest opera-bouffe tunes. The bandmaster andmen are nearly all natives of Chamba, and play really wellThe Maharajas National Anthem is founded on a Scotchair. and, as becomes a Highland chieftain, he also has hispipers. I am not much of a judge of bagpipes, but theyseemed to drone and skreel as well as the genuine Scotcharticle. Their weird notes are at all events in harmonywith these wild mountains ; which is cer

and the faith That it alone is ample meedFor all frustrations ; so, I graith My garden row for poppy seed. And therefore do I steep my soul In passion for the summertime ;I laugh to see the drunk drones roll. All nectar-drugged, from burdened cyme. And soon the droning humble-ht^y—No such gallant eer wore his spurs ! Wings loud to a catalpa-tree. Where *mong the streaked racemes now stirs A sated, truant zephyr-wight. Decoyed, by all the froth-like bloom. From riding on the billows height. And sporting where the white-caps spoom. The cherries, red and round and lush.

The honeysuckles to the eavesClimb with the prairie-rose; and, musk And rare, the night looks through the leaves.John Stuart Thompson,
