slightly wounds Kathlyn but does not
stop her flight, and she with her fa
ther and servants reaches the pre
viously planned rendezvous in safety.
Fortunately tho escaping party is ac
companied by Ramabal and his faith
ful wife, who are now Kathlyn's
staunchest friends and of incalcuablc
assistance in every emergency. Pres
ently they emerge from the jungle
and see far out on the plains the wVttc
towers and shining minarets standing
bad, tho walled city of tho desert.
They approach tho city and are re
ceived, by tho sentinels at -tho gates
and arc conducted into the presence
of thu Rajah. This functionary be
sides being the commander of the
city, lias a more important office as
the keeper of tho Sacred White Ele
phant, which is frequently sent on
pilgrimages to nearby cities to be
worshiped by tho nntives. It is one
of the precious posessions of the place
hciico tho wjilled city and many vav
