The cause of several cotton gin fires

of mysterious and serious incendiary

The feed losses are the more serious
in that hardly enough remains to
carry local stock through the winter.
Since May the hay shipments have
been SI17 cars, compared with 51t7
carloads during the same period of

Washington, D. C. Dec
Allenby's forces, which have occupied
Jerusalem, have fonnd the city was
looted before its surrender by the
Turks and Germans. Christian priests
were brutally mistreated. The Church
of the Holy Seoulchre was robbed and!
Its treasures, valued at millions, were
sent to Berlin. Chief among these
treasures was the celebrated osten

Monsignor Camassei, the patriarch
of Jerusalem, is said to have been de-
posed from his office and father Pic-
cardo, an Italian priest, to have died
from the effects of Turkish brutali
ties. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre
had remained unmolested heretofore
during all the centuries of Moslem
occupation of Jerusalem.

was consecrated in the year 336 on the
traditional spot where Christ arose
from the dead. In the year 614 the
buildings comprising the church were
destroyed by the Persians. The orig

rotunda, the shape of which survives
in the existing complex structure,
which assumed various forms In the
course of rebuilding during the mid

The Greeks contrived to secure to
themselves the principal right to the
buildings, and with the Armenians
contributed most of the money for the
erection of the new church. The di

sepulchre is situated, was restored by
architects of various nationalities in
