Lord of murder, we ac knowledge the emblem of murder. As for our mission, it Is this: We are the ambassadors of Salah-ed-dln, command er of the faithful, sultan of the east. In these papers signed with bis signet are our credentials, if you would read them." "So." answered Slnan, "I bare heard of that chief. What is bis will with me?'1 ' "This, Al-Je-baJ. A Frank In your pay, and a traitor, has betrayed to you a certain lady, niece of Salah-ed-dln. The sultan, Salah-ed-dln. baring been Informed of this matter by bis servant, the prince Hassan, wbo escaped from your soldiers, demands that this lady, bis niece, be delivered to him forth with, and with ber the bead of the Frank Lozelle." "The head of the Frank Lozelle be may bare. If be will, after tomorrow night. The lady I keep," anarled Sinan. "What then?" "Then, Al-Je-bal, In the name of 8a-Uh-ed-dln, we declare war on you war till this high place of yours is pulled stone from stone; war tUl your tribe be dead, till the last man, woman and child be slain, until your carcass is tossed to the crows to feed on." Now Slnan rose in fury and rent bis beard. "Go back," be said, "and tell that dog you name a sultan that, low as be is, the bumble born son of Ayoub, I, Al-Je-bal, do bim an honor that he' does not observe. My queen is dead, and. two days from now, when my month of mourning is expired, I shall take to wife his niece, the Princess of Baalbec," who sits bere beside me, my bride elect." At these words Rosamund, who bad been listening Intently, started like one wbo has been stung by a snake, put ber hands before her face and groaned. "Princess," said the ambassador, whe was watching ber, "you seem to under stand our language. Is this your will, to mate your noble blood with that of the heretic chief of the assassins?" "Nay, nay!" she cried. "It is no will of mine, who am a helpless prisoner and by faith a Christian. If my uncle Salah-ed-dln is indeed as great as I have beard, then let bim show bis pow er and deliver me, and with me these my brethren, the knights Sir Godwin and Sir Wulf." (To he Continued.)

MISS OGBORII WASJOT HURT Missionary Escaped the Horri ble Chinese Massacre in March. FRIENDS ARE RELIEVED. . inr A INTERESTING LETTER RECEIV ED FROM YOUNG WOMAN BY RELATIVES DESCRIPTION OF THE MOB'S WORK. There has been much concern re garding Miss Kate Ogborn, formerly of Henry county, who was in China where the recent massacre of mission aries occured, she being well known to church people throughout the state as an earnest mission worker. Miss Ogborn has numerous relatives in Richmond and Wayne county.. The following from the New Castle Cour ier will allay all fears as to her safety though she had a narrow escape, it seems: Albert D. Ogborn Is in receipt of a letter from his cousin, Miss Kate Og born, a Methodist missionary, station ed at Nan Chang, China, dated since the uprising of natives in March, in which she states that she and a party of missionary numbering in all four teen members, were able to escape from the city when trouble was brew ing and they probably owe their lives to the charitable services of friendly Chinese, who reside in the city. Ac cording to the writer of the letter, the massacre was the result of the story in circulation to the effect that a French priest had killed a native offi cer. When the mob was organized na tive residents who are friendly- and very familiar with the attaches of the Baldwin Memorial school of which Miss Ogborn is the chief, not- I When yon place your O. K. on anything yoxi are willing to stand by yoo mark. When the NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY puts this trade mark in reef and white on each end of a oackaea which absolutely guarantees the contents of. the package to be the very superlative of excellence. To learn what this trade mark really means try a package of G RAH All CRACKERS or SOCIAL TEA BISCUIT. NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY ified them of the Impending danger and hurried them to a small boat in which the entire party crossed Lake Po Yang to Klu Kiang, where they were safely housed and remained until the uprising subsided. During the time that mob law pre vailed nine'foreign missionaries were massacred along with several hund red native christians. Miss Ogborn's story of the bloodshed is sufficient to strike terror and fear to the hearts of those in the country who have some conception of what such atrocities re sult in. 4 Prof. F. S. Lamar and wife and daughter returned home yesterday to Wilmington, Ohio, after visiting friends in Richmond for several days.
