His subjects know from experience that his word is Law and that to Dis obey is just another Way of committing suicide. And yet in the beginning lbs baud s chances of winning kingship would have been accounted a minus Quantity for his Tatlier was an out Law a Man badgered from pillar to Post by the turks living a life of bitter hardship and forced to wrest As Best he might a Bare living fro the unfriendly desert. Yet it May. Well be that those years of suffering and danger proved to be the Best possible training for the proud spirit and indomitable courage that were to carry him so far. It is fold that lbs Saud killed his first Man when he was a boy of eleven. J. One common Pond. Fighting at first almost As a Lone hand he won Over to his Side an Ever growing band of followers and eventually made himself ouster of the Nevii. Lawrence of Arabia embarked in his Campaign to drive the turks Over the Border he Saad realised that in aiding the adventurous briton he would also be furthering his own cause. It was right for in return for his services he Civ cd territorial and financial concessions of such Magni tude that Mastery of almost the whole country of Matte of i Lupe.

But they had one common Bond hey were All fervid Mohammedans. " Arabia for Jitiam was his cry few arabs could resist the Call. Of ten he gained control of the he Joe. And with it Mecca he promptly carried out reforms in the sacred City that consummated the ideals of hts 6.000,000 Subj Cus. A pilgrimage that was once made painfully and expensively on loot or on Camel Back across the desert can now be undertaken in comparative Comfort in motor buses that come from All Points or the com pass on specially constructed road6. And it goes without saving that from tiie pilgrims Ibn Saud sees to it that Here is a steady flow into his exchequer. An army of Many thousands of Well armed arabs costs Money to maintain. Strict simplicity. Five times in every 24 hours he faces the Case and pays homage to Allah. He never drinks alcohol and never smokes tobacco. Bis life is one of strict simplicity and he sleeps Only four hours a Day eats hut two meals consisting chiefly of Rice and Goat s 4lesh an works for in hours.

Of these nearly 100 have been divorced with True Oriental simplicity. To say three times Iii Che presence of i unwanted wife. " t divorce thee is sufficient the deed is done. But each of these wies receives an allow Ance the equivalent of Western Ali Mony. Ibn Saud takes his harem with him on most of his journeys the women being confined in up Mclauy adapted and luxuriously furnished motor rails driven by eunuchs. Those journeys Are often made with dramatic suddenness. Should there i any hint of unrest in any part of his vast harem he sets Oil with in credible Speed and arrives while the rebellious spirits Are still complacent in the belief that their King is hundreds of Miles away. Stalwart sous Orten he personally supervises the sinking of Artesian Wells my the construction of irrigation works for it is one of his ambitions to turn much of the desert into Fertile Farni land thus bringing Prosper Ltd to a. People who have lived in privation throughout their history. That is Trio than who rules Arabia today. But what or the future ? the answer is that Ibn Saud has 17 Stal wart sons who ure being trained to carry on the work when he has gone.
