1,10) miles across the L ba dt'eset
ir. Africa to explore the city (! Ki
fra. headquarters of rho s'nussi i,
a fanatic and hostile group whose mlil
itary adventures recently have caused
anxiety in Egypt.
Traveled . Alone.
Mrs. Forbes, wearing the native
costume, was alone in her daring ad
venture. She Joined a native caravan
and, riding a camel, finally crossed
the Egyptian frontiers and reached the
sacred oasis city where only one Eu
ropean-an explorer of -4) years ago
has ever been before. Here she was
well received by the tribesmen and
given a safeguard back to civilization,
but throughout the journey she was
surrounded by hostile natives who
would have killed her had they known
that she was a white woman.
The start of the trip was made from
Benghazl, the Mediterranean end of
the ancient caravan route from the
central Sudan across the Libyan
desert. She had previously arranged
for a form of passport from the Senus
si, but this was of little value, as the
tribes through which she passed did
not recognize their sovereignty. Spies
surrounded the caravan and at the
sacred city of Taj the entire party
was placed under arrest and thrown
Into a native prison. After great dif
ficulty they were released and allowed
to proceed.
Welcomed by Chiefs.
At the osases of Kufra the chiefs
welcomed Mrs. Forbes and told her of
their plans for political power. On
the return journey she again had trou
ble with the natives and was at one
time forced to disguise herself as a I
man.
Mrs. Forbes made a survey of the
ountry during her journey and col
lected much valuable information
about the national aims of the Senussi
tribes, but concealed a small kodak
undr her flowing native robes and
made snapshots through a hole cut in
the ress. Returning to London, she
hns now laid the results of her ex
plorationis ;efotre the Biritish grovern
rent and was receive1 lby the king.1
