ALSACK-LOKItAlXK OF VITAL IM
I'OliTAM K TO FRENCH PROT
The significance of Alsace and Lor
raine to French Protestantism is re
vealed in letters and messages re
ceived by the Federal Council from
Andre Monod. corresponding secretary
of the French Protestant Committee.
Some of the great names of French
Huguenot history have come from
Alsace ? such as Oberlin, Reuss, Mat
ter, Haum, ('units and Wilm. The an
nexation of Alsace made the Evan
ge'ical Church of the Augsburg Con
fession lose thirty-eight consistories
and one hundred and ninety-one
parishes, and the Reformed Church,
five consistories and ninety-six
parishes. Before the annexation there
were 230,009 Protestants in Alsace
and Lorraine. Ry the annexation,
French Protestantism lost just one
fourth of its church members. The
expected reunion of this Department
of the East with tho other depart
ments is accordingly of momentous
importance to the Protestant
churches as a whole, in order to make
them equal to their immense duties
after the war.
At the beginning of the war tho
Huguenots of Alsace h;td to undergo
great hardships because of their
French sympathies. Pastor Ceroid, of
Saint Nicholas church in Strasbourg,
one of the leading and most honored
men of the city, was imprisoned for
alleged sayings in sympathy with the
French. On account of his old a&e
and exalted position, a medical of
ficer was sen to him suggesting that
ho ask for a certificate of ill-health,
to avoid prison. Pastor Ceroid re
fused, and was sent to prison for a
number of weeks. In reconquered
Alsace, in the Upper Rhine Depart
ment, French Protestant services have

A KM LIM A'S TRAGEDY.
Samuel T. Dutton.
Since 1!H4 the world has witnessed
its surfeit of tragedies. There has
been the wanton, heart-breaking
tragedy of Belgium, shorn of its splen
dors and robbed of its industries; the
war-torn tragedy of Poland, with con
quering armies sweeping one after an
other over its beautiful fields and
through its stately old towns; the
tragedy of Serbia, invaded from the
north by the barbarians and ravaged
from end to end. But of all the
tragedies of the war, that of Armenia
is the most harrowing. Here the cup
of bitterness flows over. As if the
history of this afflicted people were
not gloomy and unhappy enough, this
latest page has surpassed everything
before it, in horror and despair.
The Armenian race, scattered all
over Asia Minor, Syria, Palestine, the
Russian Caucasus and Persia, has for
centuries been subject to suffering.
The terrible plight of these people to
day beggars description. They have
not only suffered from invading
armies, and been driven from their
homes by the conquerors, but they
have been set upon by their own

neighbors"; they have had to bear
again the fearful persecution of the
Turk, sustained and strengthened by
the thorough-going co-operation of his
German superiors; they have been
massacred and deported and tortured.
In the Orient, where initiative and
efficiency aro often lacking, the Arme
nian has shown a remarkable indus
try. Me has loved learning and has
set up, with the small funds at his
disposal, schools for his children
throughout the Ottoman empire, when
the government has flagrantly neg
lected to provide for the education or
its own peoplfe. The Armenian has
kept tenaciously to his religion, which
