At the age of 21, he performed a feat that reads like a scenario foV Douylas Fairbanks' 1 old-time* athletic movies. With a, bare handful of men, fbn crept through palm groves, scaled walls, dodged in the moonlight, charged upstafis where Rashid's men were nnd captured Riad. He made himself, master of the half of the kingdom of Nejd. He waged incessant battle oh Rashid. There little wars were full of treacheries. Like the Arabian sands. Ibn would gather tribes into his armies and like the sands they would flow through his fm- yers at the first sign of defeat or Ihe prospect, ol more loot by deserting to the other side. Ibn's fate was to be conquerer and conquered over and over again, but gradually he extended his sway until tin ruled over all Central Arabia and had defied all the power of the Turks who were the nominal masters. The world war came and went. Ibn Sand was a friend of the English as against the Turks and the Germans, but he managed mainly to maintain a benevolent neutrality. The time was coming when he wanted to'measure swords with Hussein, whom the English had set up as Kin? of the Hedjaz. with its great Moslem holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Ibn haled Hussein as a loose liver, as a Bialter upon the Moslem pilgrims to Mecca. Ibn was prepared to have as enemies Hussein's sons, Faisal and Abrullali. whom tlic British had set up respectively as Emir of Transjordania and King ' of Iraq. But he did not want to I to fight the English. At last In 1924 his opportunity came. He walked through Hussein's forces as if they wern Mecca fell into his hands and. later. Medina and Jcddah. Hussein fled on an English ship. Ibn, King now of the Hedjax. as well as of Njcd. cleaned up Mecca, stopped the graft on the pilgrims, saw that they had a good water supply protected them from brigands.

TH H RARE WINES come from they know that the two most important tilings in wine-making arc the selection of the grapes and the long years of ageing in the wine cellars. IT'S VERY MUCH THE SAME in the making of a cigarette. You have to get tlic right tobaccos, then put them away to age and mellow in wooden casks. You can't make a good cigarette like Chesterfield in a day. It takes over two years to age the tobaccos for your Chesterfields—but it adds something to the taste and makes them milder. Everything that modern Science really knows about is used to make Chesterfield the cigarette, that's milder, the cigarette, that tastes better. ft 1»)4, LMUn * tlTBLl Co.
