ImpmdTe Ceremonies at the Cnttlnff of tho Hark to Allow the Water to Flow Into thfl Cana! The Ancient Kilometer on the Island of Rods. The tourist who enly comes to Epypt to shrui "winter and f rol weather" knows noil.iiiK of tho majestic glories of the Nils li'jod. Tho anciect Xilonioter at tho 6onth end of thoisl.uid of Ruda, just cbovc CV.:ro, is oae of the most interest ing sights ( t the i!ace. The water cn tera from the river Ly a culvert into a well fcbont IS feet square, with a frrr.dn ated stone pillar in the center. On each sido of the well is a recess about C feet wide and 3 foot deep, surmounted by a pointed arch, over which is carved in relit-f a Kulio inscription, and a similar inscription is carried all around the well, cxriiMsting of verses of the Koran. A staircase koos down tho well, from tho 6top3 of which tho initiated mr.y read tuo height ef tho vter on tho pil lar, but they aro few in number, and the hereditary hheikh of the Kilometer, whose duty it is to keep the record, is a per.icn of some importance. Tho Kil ometer dares from A. D. 801, and I bo- l;evo in tho rj-e-l-.ivcs of Cairo may be fur.nd the daily record for 1,000 rears. I need hardly toll yoa that when emr English eii,-iueers took tho river iu hainl we optabliihod a number of .cauL-ea at Wadi-Hali:i, A.snaa, Cairo and many othrr points on more scientific principles than tlto veucrublo Kilometer of the Kudu island. After tho river has bepun to risa its h?i;,'lit in daily chanted through tho Cairo streets until it reaches 10 cubits ea tho K-me. At this point tho Khalif? 13Ia.xi, the old canal that fluws through tho her.rt ; Cairo, is oened up to this point it is dry, and full or empty it is litt!o more than a Fauitary ahoniinatic.n at pre.sv'ut, but in former day3 it occu pied cu important plac-o, and when tho Nilo water was Lih enough to flew d-jwn its Led it was looked on that tho llo)l had fairly set in, and that the kind ly frnits of tho curih might be duly ex peete d. Tho head of this canal is on tho right baiik ef tho river, just 60Uth of Cairo. The water enters a channel some 80 feet wide, with a high wall on its left and a sloping bank on its right or southern flauk. Tho water then flows nnder the pointed nrch of an eld stono bridge. The bed of the canal is cleared so that it would flow in at a gauge erf about cubit:;, but an earthen bank is thrown across it about futir foot higher. There is no more interesting ceremony in Egypt than tho annual cutting of tho khaiig, as tho opening ceremony is called. It takes place between Aug. 5 and 15. D.tys heforo preparations aro made for tho festival. Tent3 with innu merable lamps are placed along the wall on the out' side. Frames for all manner of firewt rl:s aro erected en tho sand lank on tho other side. All tho notables aro there in full uniform or in canonicals. Tho kliedivo himself or his representa tive, tho fcheikh ul Islam, the "highest dignitury of tho Mohammedan faith; the Sheikh el Bekri, the Sheikh el Sadat, all the learned scribes if tho great uni versity e.f tho Ah:ir, tho cabinet minis ters and undeT sccre:t;irics, tho sireler e f the army and his statf, tho judges and tho liuanciers. Tho Egyptian troop. nre turned out, salutes aro Crcd, and about 8 o'clock in the warm summer night the classes nil os:-eiiiblo under tho gayly lighted tents, tho lnassea crowd round" the framos for tho fireworks, the street is lined with harem carriages full of closely veiled figuirs, though it is not much that they can seo from their broughams. Out in the river just opposite the canal's mouth is moored an old hulk of a e-ertain sea going outline, which has been towed up from Eulal: during tho day and is an emblem of tho tinio when tho great re public f Venice sent an envoy to wit ness the ceremony. This boat is full of lamp.-, and fireworks too. As tho nitdit deepens tho excitement increases. Tho populace on tho bridgo and opposite l.a::k are shinning, yelling and dancing wildly round tho fireworks. On tho oilier sido aro the gay uniforms and lighted tents, from which wo etui look over the wall down on the dark wa ter, where yon see brown figures plung ing in and, waist deep, digging with their hoes at the embankment that blocks tho canal's mouth. Long before midnight tho fireworks have gone out and li ft the splendid stars to themselves; tho grandees have all gone to bed, bat the people keep up the revelry, and in the morning, by 7:30. every one his come back. Then but little of the bank is left uncut, and a few more strokes e,f tho big hoes will do it, and the brown bkir.s and brown water reflect tho bright sunl'ght from above. Then the Sheik hul Islam solemnly thanks tho Almighty, Alkih the all powerful, the ail merciful. IIo implores his blessing en tho flood, and at a signal the bank is cut, tho wa ters rush in, and with them a crowd e.f swimmers. A bag of silver piasters is scattered among them, and the ceremony is at an end. Nature. Alwsya on Time. Washington had many admirable trait? worthy of imitation, and one cf them was rigid punctuality. This was well illustrated by an incident during bis visit to Boston 100 years ago. Having rppcintod 8 o'l lock in the morning as the hour at which he should sot out for Salem, ho mounted his horse jnst as the Old South clock was striking that hour. Tho company e.f cavalry whieh was to escort him did not arrive till after bis departure and did not overtake him till bo had reached Charle-s river bridge. Exchange. Coneealment No Lonrer Xccrary.
