The camel hasremained in his mind ever since as the attendant of sul-tanas ; though this impression may have become mixedin later years with the constantly recurring painting (ina dead-gold frame and red mat) of a camel and an Arabin the desert, outlined against a sunset sky. In either. 169 case, however, the animal represents something whichis as far as possible from an American street traversedby horse-cars, and when the inhabitant of this streetsees the identical creature passing him, engaged not inmaking rentrees or posing against the sunset, but dil-igently at work carrying stones and mortar for his liv-ing, no wonder he feels that he has reached a land ofdreams. Most of us do not lose our admiration for the Orient-alness of the camel. But we learn in time that hehas been praised for qualities which he does not pos-sess.
