shipment of $1,000,000 disappeared
from tho Dank of Knglaud to tho of
fices of the Credit Lyonnals at Alex
andria Is bewlldorlng tho police of
KiiKlaml, Kgypt and tho continent.
Tho crlmo Is believed to bo tho
work of n gang of International
thieves to whom Information of tho
Intended Bhlpmont leaked out. Tho
clovornoss of tho thoft is rovealed In
tho fact that although twolvo days
luivo elapsed sluco tho dlBcovory of
tho theft It Is not yet known at what
point on tho trip tho gold was stolon.
Tho most unusual feature of tho at
fair Is that whoa tho cases containing
tho gold wore opened In Alexandria
tho heavy seals put on In London
woro apparoutly Intact.
Tho specie was dlaputched from
tho Uauk of England on November
12, It was packed In bans, $5000 to
tho bag, which were placed In cnaos
and sealed, Its removal was super
intended by three representatives of
tho Credit LyouuaU. Tho cases

within two weeks.
"1 can see my boy there once in n
while," hhc said, "even if 1 cannot

Sentiment here is overwhelmingly
in favor of Mrs. Iesh. During the

but Mrs. Lesh refused to see them,
saying: "Now is not tho time for
church people to offer aid. Tho time
when I needed help was when I was
a young girl, alone ,nnd friendless.
They cared nothing about me then."
