The Witch of Aleppo  (1924) 
by Harold Lamb

Extracted from Adventure magazine, Vol 44, 30 January 1924, pp. 1-69. Accompanying illustration (for the magazine cover) by P. N. Merrill. [#Demid, Ayub]. The koshevoi—the chief of the Cossacks' warrior bands—has been kidnapped, and a king's ransom demanded. The coffers are empty. Can Demid and Ayub plunder enough in time? Failure means the chief's beheading.
