gnamHB SOIL of Armon?a, land of
Bl many, miseries and massacres,
n is drinking tko blood of ber
Jajj. Christian martyrs again. To
tho memory of. tho.most ot us
St seems as If tho Christian nations
have always been protesting against
Armenian butcheries by thc Turks.
It is a singular land, that in which
the Turks aro putting so many men,,
women and children to the sword. It
is a land so old, reaching so far back
into the morning mists of . history that
the earliest legeuds of thc human race
point to it as the birthplace of man
kind. There rise tho headwaters of
the River Euphrates., which flows on
through tho Garden of Eden. Mount
Ararat lifts its sublimo head above vUe
plain, of those massacres with the
Same placid oblivion to human crleB
and pangs that lt showed when Noah's
Ark rested there.
. Tho very village founded by Noah !
and his family when they emerged
from tho.Ark 13 yet there, tho oldest
inhabited town in tho world.
The Armenian is tho oldest branch
of Aryan Block on this earth. They
traco their descent back to Japhot,
grandBon pf Noah. That may or may
not be true, but certain it ls that
from that land in tho shadow of Ar
arat, somewhere in the region now
generally designated as Armenia, the
human raco first bog?.n that process
of migration and development that has
led to tho peopling of ovary corner
of tho earth. Prora Armenla began
the dispersion of the nations, and all
tho legends of the sarly^ prehistoric
days point the finder back toward
that land at the headwaters of tho
Euphrates and Tigris as the hirth
place ot every nation that preserved
a memory of its own origin. j ;
