over the top in less titan a week.

Denison fall short of Khenimn’s ap-

It was scarcely sunrise, on the fifth
day, when we dropped anchor against

the entire company were in the pres-

woman. 1 shall' never forget that
scene, or how breathlessly we awaited
the decision of the great man, who so
closely watched our faces. They were

stood thus, huts in hand, waiting to
