Colonel Birnell, a French officer, marries Mathilde. He starts to the front at the head of his regiment. Disguised as a French lancer, she accompanies him. Mohammed, the Arab Chief, is captured by the French. He attempts to shoot the Colonel and is prevented by Mathilde piercing the Arab's arm with her sabre. She volunteers to go as a French spy. She reaches the enemy's fortress, disguised as a harmless Arab boy, and allowed to remain with them. SOURCE: newpspaper advertisement (Nov.12,1912) In battle, the Arabs take Colonel Birnell prisoner.
