The hospital is at Khoy, 45 milei
eouth of Julfa, on the frontier between
Russia and Persia. To the
northwest of Khoy Che city dome of
Fount Ararat stands lined against the
tlyline, 17,000 feet high, or nearly
2,000 feet higher than Mount Blanc.

There is no railroad from J-ulfa to
Kboy and the dirt road i* rery bad. It
takes four rses vo pull a carriage.
At first the way lies in a desert "wi.h
barren mountains oi* both sides bu.

were evacuated to points further east.
At first the Americans tended wounded
at a temporary hospital near th3
Kiev railway station, but upon being
assigned to tlie Army of the Caucasus
they moved to Tifiis. From Tiflis the>
moved to Khoy to be nearer the Russ;an
front then operating in the region

At first there were many contagions j
cases. And the beds were crowded
vith sick refugees from Arm* :a,
.Syria and other districts. There were
manv children too to be looked after,
m^ny of them in the most pitiCi.il cgik
di*'on. One Syrian girl mentioned b\
the 'American Commercial A tachb
Baker who visited the hospital, huS
betn found by the wayside in a dying
condition, her legs below th; knees
frozen, vermin fillin her ha'r, and
covering her body. She was scarcely
more than a skeleton in rag? and
starving. She was the last of a family,
i i victims of Turkish massacres, and
she had escaped oaly -by seeding refuge
in the mountains. Both legs
V7ere amputated above the knees and
I her life was saved.
Conditions rapidl'- got bev:e;v in

Laurens, Sept. 8.?An inquest was
held today over the body of the alleged
burglar who was killed last
night in a battle with Lnurens offi
cers near Fountain Inn. The inquest
took place at the scene of the tragedy
and the verdict of the jury was
to the effect that the person was unknown
and came to his death from
gunhot wounds at the hands of Co
lumbus L. Owens, rural policeman o.
This afternoon the body was
brought to the. city, prepared for
burial and interred in potter's field
beside the grave of the yeggman who
wa sklled in Laurens seven years a<o.
The story of the shooting last ni?hf
as brought out at the inquest is substantally
as already reported. 'Th<
man was evidently a Cuban of Span
ish descent. Among his personal e
fects were found a money oraer r*. i
ceipt for $50 issued at Columbia Sep
tember 2 and a registered letter receipt
from the same postoffice without
The latter receipt, number 1847,
indicated that the letter was sent bv
Pruden Ranures to Sara Luz De
Ranures, Matanzas, Cuba, the latter
probably being the wife of the man
Thp sfraneer was about 30, -dark
complexion, dark curly hair, brown
eyes, five feet five inches and weighed
130. His body bore seven I old gun
shots and knife wounds. He had a
magazine pistol, a razor and two flash
lights. He was poorly clad, wearing
overalls but no socks.
Wednesday morning, away after
the hours of making calls, five residences
in the western pirt of the city 1
were entered, the thief making a
specialty of rifling the trouser pockets
of the men of the house. He
worked both sides of the street and
made a clean getaway, with $75 or

a $51 purse which was extracted from
the trouser pocket of one of the city
policemen who had gone off duty at
1 o'clock. The other hauls ranged
from $2 to $21. The burglar disdnined
the idea of taking anything
but the cash, for he left a good -w^cch
dangling from a pair of looted troupers
which were found lianging in the
back yard the next morning. At Gray
Court the same game was played
Wednesday night, the homes visited
including a minister and several
prominent citizens of the little town
About $15 was secured.
