He pulled off the robe of purple silk, and cast it down; then he took off the crown; and then the golden chain. Julian picked them up, and turning once more to the king, said: “I will grant you one favor before I go. You came hither to see me. If you have any question to ask, I will answer it.” The king started up as though he had received promise of some great blessing. "Once I asked you who your par ents were,” he said. "You would not answer me. Will you answer me now?” “No, sir," replied Julian. "I will not speak their names in your presence; nor will I give to you the name of the friend whom I love." "Be not too headstrong, sir robber." urged the king. "Is that all for which you sought me?” asked the chieftain, taking a step backward. “I sought thee to find out who you are. I have a reason for asking. “What reason?" "There i» something in your face which interests me.” “Perhaps it looks like my father’s,” said Julian, bitterly. ’O. if you were not a poor, decrepit old man. I should smite thee; and I will take myself away as speedily as possible, lest my resolution fail me. Stand back—l will have no more to say unto thee. Thy slaves will And thee here in the morn ing.” The* king would have followed Ju lian to the door, but the robber put him forcibly baek. and then, having picked up the lantern from the Aoor. he hastened out from the dungeon, nfter which Selim closed the door and bolted It. "His cries for help cannot be heard?” suggested Julian. “No,” answered Osmlr. "These solid walls will drink up the sound of his voice before it reaches the end of this Arst passage.” "Then we have nothing more to wait for. One lantern will suffice, so I will leave this one behind.” Julian extinguished the light, and then proceeded to array himself in the royal apparel; and when he had donned it and stood with his form bent and trembling, his companions assured h\m that he would pass for the monarch well enough. His face alone :ould betray him, and that could be easily concenled. And now for the upper world. They stopped when they reached the place where the captain lay. and when they had assured themselves that he could not move until he had received help, they passed on. Up they went, Selim going ahead with the lantern, while Osmir followed close behind the dis guised robber. Thus they passed on to the upper chambers, where sentinels were posted; but no one molested them. The seeming king walked with his head bent, and his arms folded apon his bosom, and none dared to approach him. Osmir and Selim were known to be two of the most favored af the monarch's slaves, so their pres ence seemed all proper. On they went, as freely as though moving over a desert plain, until they stood without the gate of the garden wall, at which point Julian stopped and threw off the royal robe. "This chain of gold T shall keep,” he mid; "not for its value as a trinket, but that I may have a memento of this night’s adventure with the king 3f Damascus. And now. good Os mir, let us hasten to the place where my faithful Hobaddan waits for me." In the darkness of the night, by well known ways, the blacks led the robber chieftain towards the dwelling af the prime minister, being still ready to serve him in the face of any dan ger. CHAPTER XIII. From One Danger Into Another. Ulin would not retire until she had heard from Osmir. who had gone out in behalf of the robber chieftain. She sat in her chamber, with a single lamp dimly burning, and her faithful bondmaiden kept her company. "I feel.” said Albia, breaking in upon a long silence, "that we have done no more than our duty in lending our aid to the cause of the Imprisoned chief tain.” "We have done our duty to the city." returned Ulin, hesitatingly. "If Ju lian is set free it will save much trouble to our king.” "Or” cried the bondmaiden. impul sively, "I don't care for the king. When he is your husband, then I may respect him. but I do not care for him now. I care more for the noble, gen erous, handsome Julian. I cannot forget how kindly he treated us, and how like a brother he bore himself. And, one thing more. T cannot forget how sad he looked when he left us in the Palace of the Valley. As true as I live, I think I almost love him. He is the best looking man I ever saw.” . "Albia, you must not talk in that manner before me." "Pardon, my lady. I meant no harm." "I do not chide you—l do not blame you. But—the name of the daring rob ber is not one that should br used in my presence.” A Story of tKo E&st««* By SYLVANUS COBB. JR. “Dear lady,” plead Albla, "had I re garded Julian as a real criminal, I should not have used his name as I did. But I looked upon him as a man more honorable and true than —” “Enough, Albia. Det us drop that subject now. What is the hour?” “It is past midnight—l should think an hour post.” “Then go down into the garden and see if Osmir has returned." Albia departed without speaking fur ther, and when the princess was left alone she arose from her seat and walked across the floor. “I do not think I have done wrong.” she said to herself, "in lending my aid to this robber, r shall never see him again. I do not wish to see him any more. And I do not suppose he would care to see me. I hope he will escape—l hope he will prosper in the years to come.” She ceased speaking aloud, and pressed her hand upon her heart as though the other feelings must not come forth. In half an hour Albia came back. Her step was light and quick, and a look of satisfaction beamed on her handsome face. “O. my dear mistress.” she cried, as soon as she had closed the door behind her. “Julian is saved!” "Thank heaven!” ejaculated the princess, devoutly. “He is saved, and has now started to leave the city.” “How was it done?” “Osmir and Selim came with him; and I only know that they led him forth from his prison. Hobaddan was in our garden, and when he saw his noble young master he fell upon his nock and kissed him, and wept for joy. They did not stop long, for they had not the time to spare. Hobaddan came to me and blessed me, and bade me assure my gentle mistress that he would pray for her while he had life and reason. I saw them depart, and then I turned back.” “I hope they will meet with no more danger,” said Ulin half to herself. "They will not be long In finding a place of safety,” returned Albia. "And now, my mistress, what of ourselves?" The princess started, and clasped her hands. "It is now almost two hours past midnight, and In three more hours the light of day will be upon us.” "O, Albia. I must flee from Damas cus. I dare not remain here.”, “Of course we are to flee.” said the bondmalden. “We had promised that before Hobaddan came. You told me you would flee this very night.” "And I will keep my word If I can." responded Ulin. resolutely. "You were to plan for our departure.” “It Is all arranged, my mistress. Shubal will accompany us. I have talked with him, and he is rendy. He says he can procure horses just with out the gates of the city; and he knows the way to the cave of Ben Hadad. Once with the kind old hermit, and you are safe.” Ulin had no need for further thought upon the subject, for she had firmly resolved that she would flee. The more she thought of union with the king the more terrible appeared the fate. At times she blamed herself for having admitted the idea of marriage with Horam; but she did not feel that she had willingly done wrong. When she gave herself to the royal accept ance she knew nothing of the world— knew nothing of the trials she would hnve to endure —and knew little of the character of the man who wore the crown. Since that time she had gained knowledge, and her eyes had been opened. The case dwelt in her mind now as one of life or death, and she felt that she must save herself. “I must write a few words to my father,” she said. “But you will not tell him where you have gone?" “No. 1 will only tell him why I have gone. I must do that. Get me the writing materials. Albia; and while I am writing you may go and And Shubal. We will get away as soon as possible.” The bondmalden brought a piece of parchment, a sharpened reed, and a small pot of ink; and when she had arranged them upon the table she left the apartment. Ulin sat down to the work without further hesitation, and wrote to her father the reason of her flight. When she had written all that she deemed necessary, she placed the parchment where he would be likely to find It, and then proceeded to gather up the few articles she mpant to take with her. She moved steadily about the work, and if she trembled, it was more from anxiety than from fear of what she was doing. She took her jewels, of which she pos3e~sed a rich store, and also packed up a few articles of clothing. She had Just accomplished this when Albia returned. Shubal was a stout, kind-hearted slave, who had been many years In the family, and his attachment for his young mistress was strong and true. When she called upon him to serve her. he had no questions to ask, save how he should please her best. "Shubal," said the princess, “do you know what you have to do?” "Yes,my lady. I have to serve you.” “But do you know why I have called for you now?" “Yes. I am to go with you from city.” "And you are willing?” "Yes. lady—I am willing and I am glad.” "Then we have nothing more to de tain us. Albia, are you ready” "Yes. my mistress.” Win stepped hack to her dressing table and picked up her Jewels, and for a moment she bowed her head upon her folded hands. When she looked up her fair brow was serene, and the tremulousness had gone from her lipt Shuba! took the bundle of clothing, and then the party moved out from the chamber. They gained the gar den, and passed out by the small gate; and when they had reached the street they led off with a quick step. There was a sentinel at the city gate, but he did not trouble those who passed out. As Shubal had promised, he found horses at a small stable beyond the wall, and in less than an hour from the time of leaving her chamber the princess was safely in the saddle, with her face turned toward the north ern mountains. At the distance of two leagues from the city they carne to a small strip of wood, through which their path lay. where they stopped to let their horses drink from a living spring. Shubal had dismounted to hand some water up to the females, and was Just in the act of dipping the cup. when he was startled by the sound of a step close at hand, and upon lifting his head he found a man standing directly before him. Tt was too dark to distin guish features, but Shubal could see that the stranger was tall and stout, and that bis garb was not of Damas cus. “Ha! Who is this” demanded Shu bal moving back a pace. "I am a man. and have sought the spring for fresh water,” was the an swer. “And now. who are you?” Shubal recognized the voice of an Arab; and as he gazed more sharply on the fellow, he was able to see that the garb was wild and filthy. ”1 have sought this spring as you have. Sir Arab.” “Ah, you recognize my tongue and nation, do you?” “Yes. ami it would seem that you are even with me.” “I know you arc a' slave, but that does not tell me whence you come.” “I come from Damascus.” “Ah —from Damascus! And you have ladies with you. Perhaps they have money with them. Perhaps they have Jewels. Damascus is a wealthy city, and her people seldom travel with empty purses.” Shubal started up, and laid his hand upon the hilt of his sword. ”Your words give token of a curious disposition. Sir Arab.” "Words are nothing. With a simple contracting of the lips I can produce a sound that has power to call up spirits from the earth. Hark!” (To be continued.) PURE WATER. ltnlllnc or Cooking In Any Form I>«-- ■ttrnyn Germ l.lfe. A pure water supply is rightly look ed upon as one of the greatest essen tials to the healthfulness of a com munity. Many foods, salads, for exam ple. cannot be cooked, or subjected to the effect of a high temperature, while, on the other hand, washing them In infected water may render them the means of conveying disease. Among the chief ways of preventing typhoid fever must be mentioned the care of the stomach Itself. It seems highly probable that the natural Juices of the healthy stomach are able io des troy many germs of disease; but the number which any stomach may be able to digest must always be uncer tain. and it is not desirable to test Its capacity in this direction. The fact that only certain persons out of a num ber who have partaken of food or drink Infected with disease germs may suffer Is explainable on the ground of their different general physical condi tion. or of the varying stages of their digestive organs. Boiling or cooking In any form destroys all germ life; and food or drink about which there is a question of typhoid infection should be subjected to one of these processes before it is taken into the stomach.— Health.

The authorities of Ashtabula, Ohio, and the people generally are much in terested in uneurthing the individual or individuals who have made four consecutive attempts upon the life of Miss Lillian Hawkins, a young ludy of that place, whose reputation is of the highest. So far the mystery remains unsolved and meantime the young vic tim is slowly recovering from the shock of the fourth uttempt upon her life. She declares she knows no per son who should seek her life, nor any reason why she should be attacked. Lust December the first attack was made upon her. Shortly before Christ mas while visiting friends in Rock Creek, near Ashtabula, she was left alone in the house one day. When the family returned they found the girl bound and gagged, lying on the floor, and with a mark around her throat where a cord had been tightly drawn. She hud been attacked from behind and while being choked she became MISS LILLIAN HAWKINS. unconscious. She did not see her as sailants and the authorities who • be gan a prompt Investigation of the caso failed to discover the criminal. A few weeks later after Miss Haw kins’ return to her home she ate an apple and was taken suddenly sick. Only prompt medical aid saved her life, as the apple had been poisoned by strychnine. The next assault upon her was made early in the summer. One evening she wus holding a lantern for her father In the back yard when a quantity of vitriol was thrown in her face. In the excitement, the miscreant escaped and no trace of him was found. The last attempt upon her life was made last week. She was eating sup per with the rest of her family and while partaking of sliced peaches she noticed a peculiar taste. Her suspi cions and those of the family were at once aroused and Investigation re vealed that the peaches had been dosed with laudanum. Medical aid was at once summoned and her life was once more saved. Her condition is still serious as this latest attempt on her life has completely shattered her nerves. Thorough investigation of the mat ter is being made, but neither she nor her family can throw any light upon it Value of South African Ilor«o». One of the great lessons of the floor war was to show the value of the South African horse. If the Boers had not been so excellently mounted as they were, on horses bred in the Transvaal, Orange Free State and Cape Colony, the war would have worn a different aspect. The South African horse can live on much less food than an English horse; he does not suffer from the climate; he does not tumble into holes; he is sounder, is more sensible, and learns better to stand alone without being tied up.
