Then swiftly thai thought came to him did the doctor like All Tho rest of the world know that things were not As they should to Between him and his wife. Ava Ahe just peering at him did he in his own heart believe that he Dorek did not care if Diana lived or die-13 but he did Caro. ? the Rome Branco of that hour when to Hod not known whole or it would to life or death still seared his memory. Whatever Sho had done to loved her As much v As Ever. He had sworn then to himself that if she lived he would fight his hardest to keep her from Allerdyce to win her for himself. If she indeed did not love allo Dyco now if As Freddy had tried to convince him it was a thing of the past Over and done with then to still had a Chance. His thoughts flew on while Tho doctor was. Speaking. A few minutes later a nurse came to him to Tell him that he might go upstairs. Again he walked along the spotless White painted corridor with its cleanly smell of disinfectants mingled with the faintly Subtle odour of anaesthetics. To Day although the shutters were still half drawn the room was much lighter than Thad. Boon the morning before. Diana was lying on her Side almost in the same position her head still swathed in bandages. But her eyes Iverc wide open As the nurse in Chargo of Ippoldo sympathetically away Sho tinned them towards him. Derek her voice came faintly to Nim As if from a distance there was a look almost of Appeal in the Grey eyes looking into his. Diana to Knelt Down beside her taking her hand in his. The childish weakness of her voice the pathetic a peal in her eyes touched every string of chivalry in his nature. ? am i going to die unexpectedly the question came from her Pale lips.

Mecca the holy City of islam is in danger of being captured by Tho armies of Sultan Ibn Saud the warlike and fanatical chieftain of Nojd which is practically Tho great control arabian plateau. King Hussein of the a Djaz in whose territory Mecca is situated has abandoned Tho City and with his court ministry harem and Royal treasures has fled to Tho bed sea port of Jeddo. Mecca itself is declared to be in a most deplorable condition. Scarcity of food is beginning to be seriously Felt. Deserted by its military commander Lowa Rushdy Pasha and evacuated by most of King Hussein s troops Mecca is so abandoned that order can no lon Ger be maintained and. Anarchy is to ginning to raise its head. Wahabi ? agents a Ibn Saud s men a Aro said to have Stolon into Tho City to stir up trouble. Robbery and violence Aro increasing. The inhabitants Are naturally in a state of terror and the exodus is re ported to to beginning in Earnest. Travellers from Jeddah declare that Ibn Saud s Advance guards Are waiting on the High ground along the caravan routes from Mecca ready to descend on Tho sacred. City when the Sultan gives the word. There is no doubt that the. Sultan can March into the City whenever he likes. Iljin Saud is doubtless having pres sure applied to him by the moslem authorities not to occupy Mucci a and he May be waiting to know what inducements May be forthcoming should he Absi Triin. Warship at Jeddah. . Clematis is at Jeddah to. Protect British interests there. Both sides have been warned to Safe guard the lives and property of any British moslem subjects in the area. King Hussein a the ruler of Tho Hejaz kingdom comprising a Broad strip of territory along the Eastern coast of the red sea. Ibn Saud a capital is Riad 400 Miles further Inland than Mecca and there is no direct Road Between Only vast Rocky Hills impassable Gorges and Tony deserts. The Sultan s subjects Are mainly Wabasis one of the most extraordinary races of the varied realm of Moham med. To was their Rise to Power about a Century and a half ago which brought the turks As conquerors into Arabia. They Aro Stern unbending puritans of islam. Their Creed forbids smoking music the wearing of silk and ornaments and the use of opium. They do not1 celebrate Mohammed a birth nor admit the Prophet is an intercessor with Allah. Believes in holy War. They May not visit Tho Graves of Tho dead they do not offer prayers to the Prophet or the saints they condemn minarets tombstones the tombs of saints and places of martyrdom. The Only luxury they allows. Strangely enough perfume. Instead of praying beads they use their Knuckles. Most important of All they believe in the jihad or that a holy War against unbelievers is still a duty imposed on the faithful. When Tho great War broke out the Sultan Ibn Saud was battling against Tho turks. To was peaceful for awhile when re a living the Aritis Sud suly Dut when that was withdrawn last october to began preparing for War against his hated rivals King Hussein and that Monarch s two sons the rulers respectively of Iraq and Tran Jordania.

Europe wants guiding hand. By William h. Crawford americans according to Henry mor Genth a formerly ambassador to tur key Aro at the dividing of Tho ways. What Aro issues of the. Campaign or. Morg Oritha i asked. Thero Are several chief among which Aro our foreign affairs honesty in government and a government administered in the interest of All suppose you discuss these separately. ? what about our foreign affairs Tho handling of our foreign fairs at this critical moment is of extreme importance. It occupies a Posi Tion much More important than Tho Campaign orators and writers have As signed to it. Europe is Drifting to Ward another War. I have recently returned from abroad and every Evi Dence pointed to this fact. European countries arc finding Tho greatest difficulty in readjusting them selves without a guiding hand. It is like trying to lift oneself Iby Hig own Bootstraps. They look to America for Aid and direction. They cannot under stand Why this big and successful Mem Ber of the brotherhood of nations holds aloof. They were cowed by the War they needed peace. They wore willing to make any sacrifice to secure it but like a Man weakened by a desperate sickness they depend upon a Strong Arm to Lead them until they regain their strength and they arc ready to Flop without it. The republicans in the sonata wore obdurate at the time when Thoy first should have come to the Aid of Europe. They ref used to allow America to do the duty which nature material advantage and civilisation had placed upon us. ? so dependent economically and morally was Europe Ripon us that when the promised help from America was withdrawn it lost Hope of. Making a United front against the War and each Power returned to its old idea that might makes right. With this senti ment Rife in Europe at present wit economic discontent rampant with Dis Trust existing Between Naf Eions the possibility of Europe again Drifting into War is exceedingly Strong. Object in Watt. We went into the last War for the purpose of preventing future wars by preventing any one Power becoming overlord of the world. Ava went into it most reluctantly because we thought that it was not our War. We soon found however that to Weiffe. Mistaken. There cannot any major War that is not our War ? we found thai our entire Commerce was affected and. That Tho lives of our. Citizens were sacrificed. To found that the world was headed towards chaos and that a. Would go Douai in the grins unless we put a Stop to the War by taking a hand in separating the contend ants. We found that above All the world is so interlocked by Commerce steamships airships Tele graph and wireless that no nation can exist alone. ? this statement is still True. The Republican plea that we do not want to become involved in european affairs again and. Thus have to Send our boys of Orcas is childish. We could not during the Avold War and we cannot Iii Tho future keep out of any general War. If War comes to will be in it regardless of o or efforts to keep out. The Wise course therefore for us is to try a Ivory Means in our Power to prevent its recurrence. At the present time the same pre monitory systems of War c list As those that prevailed in 1911-191 1. It will develop into a world conflate Jontion con Moro awful than the last unless the steadying hand of the a incited states directed by an Able Leader with n breadth of vision and an crib Sivo acquaintance with world conditions takes the Helm. If to arc to to under the leadership of a vapid Raipe table mediocrity who will continue trying to make us an isolated nation oblivious like Tho Ostrich when his head is Cov. Rcd of. The real danger that confronts us then to can expect nothing but to Havo our boys again Cut oversea.1 Wool Market.
