CHAPTER IV. INTRODUCES THE READER TO THR PIRATE CITY, AND TO A FEW OK ITS PECULIARITIES AND PRACTICES. Pebmit us now, good reader, to introduce you to the top of a house in Algiers. The roofs of the houses in the Pirate City are flat—a most admirable Eastern peculiarity which cannot be too strongly recommended to Western builders. They are, therefore, available as pleasant " terraces," on which you may rise above your cares, to lounge, and smoke—if afflicted with the latter mania—and sip coffee with your wife (wives, if you be a Turk), or romp with your children—if not too dignified—or cultivate flowers, or read in a state of elevated serenity, or admire the magnificent view of the blue bay, backed by the bluer Jurjura mountains, with the snow- topped range of the Lesser Atlas beyond. How much wiser thus to utilize one's house-top than to yield it up, rent-free, to cats and sparrows !

He was also said to be a kind husband and a fond father, but as no one, save the wives and children in question, knew anything of the inner and private life of the palace, this must for ever remain a matter of uncertainty. There was no doubt, however, that he was atall, handsome, dignified man, in the prime of life, with a stern eye and a pleasant expression of mouth ; that, ...
