ttgly 1 , my" charmer, and we will fly from ittwence. But while thou puttest the aba \i\y to shame thou must blame eta, not us, if we refuse to go from thy jirfde. And now, my adorable, there Is bust- lM6s going on in which t must bear a hand. Will tny queen therefore deign to accom- ttahy Us to a place of safety, where she may W guarded from harm?" . The lady would have broken out again, but Bulelman had no more time to waste on words. "Conduct thy mistress, the queen, and her fair companion, the Kern of India, Whither we lend," he said, turning •harply upon Baruk. "Is there a spot of safety about this nether pit?" "It 1s as my lordseeth," answered Uaruk. Suleiman considered for a moment/, then ; turned again to the ladies. "Have the lights ot Amood's eyes any {mssessiona they would fain carry with them?" he inquired, with a courtly smile. •Trinkets, jewels, costly robes? Methinks 'they must have. And we Will ourselves .help them to collect their riches. Ye stay : here while we search." Accordingly, although the queen declared ^Vociferously she had no wish but to see the iMt of us, the ladies were consigned to the •care of a strong guard, of which t was one, while the rest, under the guidance of Bu- Xttk. went in search of valuables, They returned after a little with many sparkling •40skets full of precious gems, loads of vari- !«Ui 'stuffs of richness unsurpassed—cam• el's hair cloaks elaborately inwrought with gold, Indian silks of manifold dyes and ' -patterns, Khorassan brocades, bundles of •rugs and shawls and sashes enough to fur-'A tt* u 1° regiments of sheiks, and, more im_ Jportant than .all, two more of theprlncl- * /pat ladles of the harem. ,;' ( "Justonethlngmoreerewedepart," said Suleiman gleefully. "There is enough of the wine of Shlraz to float a thousand •hips, and, by,tho prophet's beard, we go not without a share of it." They went off again, presently coming tiock laden till they groaned with skin bottles of many sizes full to .the brim of wine. • Theburdens were setdown, and Suleiman looked with joy at the pile, and from tha pile to the ladies, and from the ladies back at the pile. "It Is good," be remarked. "Said I not that Amood was a mighty benefactor of his kind? There is enough here to maka the black tents merry for a year." But it was a hard question how to get all this plunder away. We had won it by force, and by force might lose it, for in such adventures as looting castles propes;y changes hands with unreckonable quioK- ness. Suleiman stepped to the latticed window, sent It into shivers, and looked down. Wo were on the outerwallof the castle, and our beasts could not be far off. Suleiman's brow cleared. "There be ropes where riches so abound, my gazelle," he said, turning to Baruk. "Yea, my lord." "Take him and bring a rope, All," said Suleiman to a mau at his side. "Two, if thou canst find them, and make thy best •peed." All and Baruk were out of sight in a moment, and Suleiman went on with his instructions. "And thou, Ibrahim, ray trusty risht band, take, with .you three others, cleave your way down to where we left our horses and tell our fellows to bring them under this window. The matter will be easy. Get camels, too, if thou canst lay bands on them, and our fair ones would ride the easier in litters. I will swing u liiiiip in iho Window as a signal to thee, m.d forget uot, xxl Ibrahim, to make baste." "I will not forget," said Ibrahim, choos- i(C his companions. la a- few minutes' AH and Baruk were with two stout !•(., >.?, which were le fast to two gpur.rae.iil.s driven into the floor. "We will slip down these quicker than the angels came 1 down Jacob's ladder," remarked Suleiman, tin-owing tlio loose ends out of the window. "is'ow, my good Ibrahim, do not tarry." Ibrahim did not tarry. Even sooner, I think, than was expected by our impatient leader, there was ii sound of grunting and •nortinjj and low vi.jcen in the darkness un- derneutli thuc him wnile. "Art thou tbue, Ibrahimr" called Suleiman softly. "I am here," answered Ibrahim in the Mine tone. "And four camels, by the memory of thu great Saud., [A notorious Arab freebooter.] How didst thou find them, my guy one?" "By taking their keepers unawares and •ending them swiftly to the prophet's bosom," replied Ibrahim. . "Maleo will seethe tbee in flery brimstone for thy good deeds, Ibrahim," chuckled Suleiman. , > Chattels and ladles were lowered, tbe lot- It [eld Up BI3 Bud \\ Vbll ptpturt NluitrAtet one of the many • »c«n«» in o erial eutitled itriklnar »c«n«» in our new Ser A YANKEE IN BRAY * BY M.

"What the Bedouin leaves the flames Will have," remarked one of the men a minute • later as a great blaze lit up the sky. I "Idiotsl" growled Sulemman, who in- ' tended to go back for more plunder, and in the next breath, "Mother of the prophet, i listen to the roaring and the rushing! Our | kindred will be about us like clouds of hornets. It is time to be away." If we wished to hold our own, it was time, So, mounting in the light of the burning pile, we made off with all speed. It, was not easy to escape from that whirlpool Of destruction and keep our plunder intact. At the start we had to fight our way step by step, and at times the handling was so rough and the odds so heavy that it seemed we must lose all we had captured. But we kdpt well together, and partly by strategy, partly by a free and active use of steel, we got out at last with no more serious mishap than the loss of a little blood. To that we were by this time accustomed, and it did ndthurt our spirits,! though one man, evidently a recent addition to the band, in ml e much ado about a couple of broken ribs till he was laughed and bullied out of his complaints. We made straight for the desert as our safest retreat, never drawing rein till the sun was well up and we were obce more alone. Then we halted to refresh ourselves with some of the good things provided by Amood Sinn. But before there was either eating or drinking Suleiman drew up the band and made a little speech. "We have with us four princesses as beautiful as the morning and as soft as the dove," he said, making a salaam toward the litters. "We value the gifts of heaven, and my purpose in speaking Is to let it be known that, by my life, the man who layeth a profane finger on these fair ones shall die the death of ft dog. Yet is there much to comfort us. We shall feast, my merry ones. Yea, eat and drink in honor of our victories. There is a sweet savor already in my nostrils. Here are rivers of the wine of Shiraz, and bread baked in the ovens of Amood. Heaven protect him in his adversity I" The company applauded and fell merrily to eating and drinking; the men squatted ou the ground beside their horses, the women chastely withdrawn in their litters and attended by the obsequious Baruk. The meal was not over when Suleiman and Ibrahim were discussing our next movement. Much was said in a low voice about pilgrims and caravans and th«s pecuniary value of ladies such as we happened to possess, and, though I did not hear all, yet by putting two and two together I understood that more robberies were in tho wind.' Ti short, the pious of the Moslem world were then making the annual pil- I grimage, and we were bent on relieving | them of some of their superfluous wealth The caravan on which we were anxious to bestow bur attentions waa the one that, starting from Yumen, proceeds by the mountain course to Talf. As we knew almost to a day tho date at which it would appear, we could post ourselves satisfactorily and await its coming with composure. The place of reception was in the heart of the uiou itains in a deep and ugly defile where two camels could' scarcely walk •breast and * caravan could be harried with impunity. We rode bard, gained our position In good time, hid like foxes among the rocks and prayed that tho hadjis would not tarry. While waiting their arrival I had an experience that would be worth a fortune to a story teller. The sun bad set, And tho night had closed In rather dark. I bad been attending to my mare and was returning to my com panions, when Baruk, sidling up with an air .of profound mystery, whispered that the Indian princess wished to have speech With me. "But beware how thou goest," he said. "A score of lances would be sheathed- in thy body if thou wert caught talking to her tn secret." "What does she want with me, Barak?" I inquired softly. . "She will tell tbee. Follow me," he answered, gliding into the darkness. The danger and" the mystery were of eourge an irresistible Incentive, and I turned after him instantly. We, found the Indian crouching behind a big stone, having by some pretense managed to«get away from the other women. Saluting her quietly, I told bur I was at her service, but instead of answering me she turned to Baruk. "Good, good Baruk," she said iu the sweetest of' voioemnd In broken Arabic. "Gracious Baruk, go back to the Utters. Say I am praying to thu night. It Is a custom with my people. It U a rite, say a rite, my Baruk. Fear not, I will return to thee, Ho," Indicating me, "will keep me safe," Baruk looked a little dubious, but he went. "Thou art a stranger Iu this land," she •aid to we quickly when we were alone. "Ill India we we thy people, but this is not India, Thy face made my heart leap In tho palace. Art one of the robborsf What ilo people call themf Bedouin*—yea, that In it. Art one of themf" A man must not trust himself uureserv edly to the first minx he meets, so I an- •woral warily. But her eager Intelligence found all she wanted in my reply. "Set, I take thy hand uijd kiss It-*o," selsslug my baud and putting It to her lips. "It is slu iu our religion. But I have been taught. Ah, bal I have boeu taught. I am u daughter of the holy prophet, but there is" more than one road to heaven, Is that uot good truth?" I had to admit it waa fairly good truth Mtd vxcellwt Christian doctrine. "Vu», yes, I know," she went ouqulokly, and her vole* was thrilling with sup- prwwed emotion. "I have been taught —wore tuau one road to heaven—that U what thy people say. Vow lUten.

"It U only Baruk,! 1 she naid, much ro-' llovwl, "Good Baruk, jiwt a Jlttlu «uac« longer. Tell them If tuny ask tlieo that 1 aw sate.

"Thoft Shalt go straight to paradise, Bn- ruk," the replied soothingly. "Just one little space more," and: he Went away again. "Now art thou going to stay?" "Nofelf lean help It,," I blurted, almost without knowing what I said. "That is Rood," she said with a little rocking motion of delight, "There is not time to tell everything, now. If thou goest take me with thee. Let them not keep me to do their will. Pollution—that Is It. Thou wilt save me, and I will love thee forever. Listen. I was performing the pilgrimage, they captured the caravan and slew my father. There was one—but there is no time to tell it. It was Amood Sinn that wag wicked, and now I know he has been punished because his palace is in ashes, A battle perchance. Wert thou in it?" I answered in the affirmative, getting ever deeper" involved iu tho mysteries surrounding this strange woman, "And 'didst thou see one there like thyself? Hush, hush!" Baruk came again, saying he would risk his life for us no longer. "Good Barttk, tbou wilt not die," said my companion. "One turn more—one little turn. That is it. The night is cool. Thy mind will be at ease." "Thou wilt have me speared like a goat," he demurred. Nevertheless he left us once more. "There Is another caravan coming," 1 pursued my companion breathlessly. "I heard it from Baruk. Let us join it. Trust Baruk for bis love of gold. I will trust thee in honor of thy people." Aud she was lost in the darkness like a shadow. I returned to my place and presently got a word with Ba'ruk. "What is this strange thing that, the Indian princess sayeth?" I asked, putting my mouth close to his ear, for there was need of dead secrecy. "Nay, I am not a magician," he answered, with tbe oily evasiveness of the oriental who is chary about committing himself. "Let us have no pretense of ignorance," I said, feiRuing anger. "What do they mean?" "My lord frighteneth me." Tho voice of Suleiman was heard calling for some one, and in the same instant tbe flres leaped up, shedding a fitful, lurid ; light on the scene. II we were caught con' suiting, our lives would not be worth 10 minutes' purchase. "Look here, Baruk," I said, "I am thy friend. What Is the state of affairs? Tell it clearly." "May I never be in such a position again," groaned Baruk. "Hark you, we deal with treachery and cruel lances. What Is our blood? Nothing. What is the spoil and the price ot these women? Everything. i Yet we talk of that which, were it known, I would make us dead men 011 the spot." I My thoughts were exactly like his, but a . woman had asked my aid, and I could not : refuse it. "Freedom is more than life," I said, with 1 on audacity that was hot entirely genuine. | "We must not be timorous. ' Now, look I you, I am a stranger. Thinkest thou I came here to rob? We help ourselves, good Baruk, In helping the Indian princess." "She bath untold riches; she can recompense," murmured Baruk. "Yet perchance when she was safe she would forget us." "And if thou remainest here, art uot thou a bondsman forever? Nay, who is to hinder these fellows from taking thee out into thb desert aud stripping thee naked and leaving thee, so that when the wolves were done with thy boues they would be the sport of the winds?'' /'There is much in what thou sayest." Suleiman WOM calliiiK again and more im oatieutly than before. "I will speak with tnr>3 again, "whispered Baruk hurriedly. "It is not safe now." And he disappeared. Sauntering carelessly back to tbe flres, which burned red and low now, I threw myself ou the ground to ruminate on all I bad just beard. We were riotously merry. There wu an abundance, indeed a superabundance, of food; wine flowed like water in the rainy season, and the coffee and tobacco were this bent on earth. Suleiman, rising presently, went to see that the ladles wen being properly attend ed and came back praising the wondrous docility of the Indian princess. . I smoked, looking up at the brightness of Orion, and said 1 nothing. But in my heart was thu quivering exultation of the schemer who has important business ou hand and knows that failure is death. My next move was to enlighten Tabal. It was done In a few words, for now that thu heavens were bright tbe chance of private talk was small. But Tabal quickly understood all and terveutly swore a vow ol fealty. To Tabal's mind there was but one serious difficulty in our project of escape. "Wo go with the caravan to Mecca," h« •aid. "Assuredly; it will do us all good." • "But thou art not ot our religion. Think what that uieanetb." "I am • butter Mohammedan than thy •elf, good Tabal. There will not be In thu great mosque a more devout had*', tlmn him whom thou callust ChrUtiun. Aru wu uot brothers? Did not thy father i> at the light of tbe Koran Into my soul? Dost thou think law caruletuj,about getting to heaven? Tabu!, I will do the pilKrlmago ui v a follower of the prophet." Tabal was convinced, and we parted to 'ignore each other very studiously tor the rest of tho night. Near the dawn, when the world was black and men wore heavy, Baruk return**! to me. Ho had got, over his wavering ami waa ready for the most desperate exploit. "Wu will put on the green turban [tha badgu or slgu of such as have performed the pllgrlmag* to Mecca] together, Baruk," I sold joyfully, after listening to his prom Ue of help. "Now, tell me the uuute ol our princess." "They call her Haueo." "A pretty name," I remarked, "Let us make her happy." Therefore at brlully aud mluutoly as wan uoaslblo with words 1 gave hiuueK instructions both for lUnu« and for himself. Fortunately the sliupllo ity of the plau of attack enabled u» to wake our arrangements with ooufidouuu aud talurablu accuracy.

The response was as prompt as might be expected of men whose notion of heaven is eternal plundering. Almost before the words of command were out of the messenger's mouth we- were clattering off at a breakneck pace into sunless chasms and by beetling archways and up and down dizzy steeps that only robbers with no souls to save would have faced. Tabal and 1 were of tbose who went to the foot, and fervently we prayed the pilgrims might have a good courage and firearms for distressed strangers. In the course of a racking ride we came often into violent contact, and in one of the collisions, while pretending vehement anger at the tough usage, I managed to get a word in Tabal's ear. "Whatever happens, let us stick to each other," I said in a quick aside. "Our signal for the dasb is when we see Baruk and Ranee descending among the rocks." ' "Never leech clung as I will cling to thee," answered Tabal. And then he began to abuse bis horse for the son of a mule that couldn't keep his feet in a plain road. And the Bedouins, being closely occupied, saw or suspected nothing. Beaching the bottom too soon, we had to wait behind a bluff. The tail of the caravan still wriggled outside the mouth of the pass, and it would be folly to attack till it bad disappeared after the body. While waiting, Ibrahim, our captain, gave his instructions briefly and pointedly. We were to rush the cauielmun, throw them Into utter confusion, seize as many laden animals as wo could lay hands on, and make off with them to the rear as fast as steel could urge them. Such as were free would protect the others, but as many as could were to pounce ou some piece of property, In short, our business was more to pillage than to fight, and, if the pilgrims were not unreasonable, uot of them need lose bis life. With beating hearts and a burning impatience, we kept still till the tail should have wriggled itself into the mountain cleft. As if to try our self control, our watchers were constantly reporting that the crucial moment had come, and then immediately contradicting themselves to reaffirm their first intelligence the next minute. This went ou until we were in a fever and ready to rush from our concealment at all hazards. As for Tabal and me, if you have ever laid in wait with the merest chance between life and death aud a frantic desire to' try it, you will understand our feelings. Being apart, we could not so much as exchange a whisper, and all we bud to restrain and encourage us were the muttered curses sud comments of our comrades. Onccft_uor4e of keen scent neighed, and Ibrauihi nearly felled the brute, thinking we were bet rayed, but the tail continued to wriggle slowly on, end we breathed again. Then word came that the last mau was within the pass. The next moment we were In the open and galloping furiously to the attack. __ [TO BE CONTINUED.] i CENSURE THE COLONEL Large Anti-Breckinridgc Meeting Held at Lexington. solemnly protest against his renominatlon as the representative of this district.
