bride "my bride." (The girls here
speak to me of Clair's wife as "your
bride.") So these people fixed it upis
with Anna's parents, before she knew
anything about it, and the date for
the engagement was set. Miss Bush
nell tried to persuade them to wait
until after Anna graduated, but one
of the girls was going to Constanti
nople, and she wanted her brother to
get married before she left, so it hadthe
to be. During the engagement, Baron
Alexander came to see Anna a fewthe
times, they were engaged three weeks,
and then married. Then the bride
goes to live in the groom's home, 'with
all the other sons' wives and families.
The new bride is an object of scorn.
She cannot speak when in the
presence of any male member of theMiss
family, or any female member older
than herself. Her mother-in-law is
usually a perfect tyrant. Part of thewheezy
wedding ceremony is for the bride to
go around and kiss the hands of allplaying
the groom's family. The celebration
after the ceremony lasts all night,
and the bride cannot sit, or take any
thing to eat, or speak. She is closely
veiled. The next day she is still on
her feet all day, bringing refresh
ments to the callers, and showing
the things in her box. That evening
she must dance to show off hertimes
wedding dress. Of course, some of
the people are getting a little en
lightened, and the bride has to wear
a veil and keep silent only a few days
or weeks, but in many homes the cus
tom is kept up until another bride
comes. In many, too, the bride is
free after the birth of the first son.
Aghavne, one of our teachers, who
was married last fall, has been freer
than any other bride ever known in
this city. She and Avedis got enhave
gaged because they wanted to. He
courted her quite in the American
style, and they were engaged eight
months before the wedding, when he
came to see her often. She had no
veil over her face during the cere
mony, no celebration after it, and Mr.
Stapleton performed the ceremony
leaving out the word "obey", though
the native pastor read the passage
about wives being obedient to their
husbands, before the ceremony. Her
mother-in-law wasn't in the city for
the ceremony, but treated her well,
and gave her permission to speak as
soon as she came. She gets a letter
from him every week, too, mighty nice
letters, and husbands in this country
don't often write to their wives. They
go away hunting work, and don't
come back for months or years, and
the wife and children starve or live,
as they best can.
There is a lot of howl in the papers
about there being so many divorces in
America, but since I saw this country,
I think that is nothing to howl about.
Of course they don't have divorces
here, nor in any other country I sup
pose, where the wife is simply the
slave of her husband and his family.
Out in Heregnas' village the other
day I took a picture of the priest's
family. The priest's wife wanted to
send for her oldest daughter, who is
married, but the priest said "no" and
seemed very angry, so I asked
Heregnas to explain. The girl was
married when 12 years old to a boy of
15,the son of a rather well-to-do
familybut they gave the new bride
the hard work to do, among it
bringing of the water from the
fountain and the lifting of their beds,
really their mattresses, up on the high
shelf where they are kept. The girl
couldn't stand the work and got sick,
so her mofcher-in-law turned her
and she went home begging to be
taken back. Her mother wanted to
take her in, but her father said it
would never do for him, a priest, to
let his daughter leave her husband,
that the people were married for life,
and that she must go back and en
dure anything they did to her. So
she is there now, and he wouldn't let
her come to be in the picture, for fear
she would cry and beg to stay at
home. Such is life in Turkey. Of
course the Turks have many wives,
but the Armenians never but one.
The Turks have great confidence in
Dr. Underwood and often come to thea
hospital for treatment. Not long ago
a man brought his young wife. He
had two, one about his own age, andand
the young one. Both were with him.
Doctor examined the young sick one,
and said it would do no good to bring
her to the hospital, she couldn't live
long anyway, and he said that such a
look of joy went over the older
woman's face. How would you like
to be the six months' old baby of the
younger wife, left for the older one to
take care of, along with six of hera
I often wish, too. that the Elk
River congregation, some Sunday
morning, could change places with
this one. The church building is less
than half as big as the one there, I
think, but more people crowd into it
every Sunday, than ever get into the
church at home, except on Christmas
or Memorial day. Of course the
building, like all the buildings here,
is of stone, with mud for cement.
There is a small cupola with a bell.
There are two windows in each end.
There are rough benches, and a rail
ing right up through the hurch, that
divides it into two parts, one fop the
men and one for women. T?he church
arranged a good deal like the one
at home. [Eere should appear a
sketch of the church. But the sketch
has disappeared.Ed. Union.] The
men and boys sit in the large
division, the women in the other.
There are more men and boys at the
services, but not twice as many, as
space would indicate, but if any
body is crowded, of course it must be
women. So the women fill up the
seats first, then the corner where the
dots aresitting on the floor, then on
the floor in the aisle. The men always
fill up all the seats on their side, and
occasionally some of them have to sit
on the floor. Our school girls and
Bushnell and I sit on the men's
side, in the corner with the seats
going the other way. There is a little
organ in front of the pulpit,
and the young man who does the
in really a good musician.
He is a graduate of Marsovan col
lege. He can play very nicely on the
violin, too, and he trains the special
music for Christmas and Easter time.
The rest of the time there is no choir.
These people sing more than those at
homeI mean that they all try to
singand the congregation makes six
as much noise as one of theOr
same size at home. Every man
boy sings, as well as the women and
girls. At least half of the hymns in
their hymn-books are translations
of familiar English hymns, but they
have some truly Armenian music.
Most of these are set to weird, rather
plaintive tunes, none of them have the
joyous or triumphant note so common
in our hymns. I suppose that their
music reflects the oppression they
endured for hundreds of years.
The Back Yard Garden.
The cultivator of the back yard
garden gains much from his enter
prise. Not only is he doing the part of
good citizen and producing some
thing which will benefit him finan
cially, but he is accumulating health,
the glow brought to his cheek by
gardenng is by no means the smallest
profit of his entreprise.New Ulm
Review. Capt. Bogardas Again Hits tbe Bull's Eye.
This world famous rifle shot, who
holds the championship record of 100six
pigeons in 100 consecutive shots, is
living at Lincoln, 111. Recently in
terviewed, he says: I have suffered
long time with kidney and bladder
trouble and have used several well
known kidney medicines all of which
gave me no relief until I started tak
ing Foley's Kidney Pills. Before I
used Foley's Kidney Pills I was
subjected to severe backache and
pains in my kidneys with suppression
and oftentimes a cloudy voiding,
while upon arising in the morning I
would get dull headaches. Now I
have taken three bottles of Foley's
Kdney Pills and feel 100 per cent
better. I am never bothered with my
kidneys or bladder and once more
feel like my own self. All this I owe
solely to Foley's Kidney Pills and
always recommned them to my fellow
sufferers." Sold by all druggists.
Or ft
We have a very good pastor, a man
who was a Gregorian, and has been
a Protestant some 15 years. His
sermons are fine, they all say so, and
I can understand enough of them to
wish I could understand more, or to
make me wish I could hear just one
of Mr. Cutter's once in a while.
Do you people realize that every
man and boy here wears a red fez?
I didnt't until 1 really reached
Turkey. And about half of them
keep them on in church. It makes
one realize more than anything else,
that one is in a foreign country, as
one looks over the congregation.
And the women all wear shawls over
their heads, it is a shame for them to
go to church withoutthat being the
way they interpret St. Paul's in
junction to the women to "remain
covered in church, "though I think
myself that it is rather a result of
their living with the Turks, who re
quire their women to cover the head
and face both.
A poor woman here will sell any
tihng else, even her shoes and
stockings, before she will her shawl.
Beggar women often have hardly any
clothing, even in the winter, but they
always have some good sized rag on
their heads. Often all their clothing
is made of a kind of a gunny sack.
Since freedom came last summer,
many of the women, the younger ones,
at least the girls, have begun wear
ing just a scarf, like an automobile
veil, over their heads, and two ofapplication,
them have actally adopted a little
black turban, but they say that every
talks of them as "bold."
Now I hope that this will really
make the rounds, in time, but that
you will not feel that you must rush to
send it along. I keep thinking of
all the time, that I would like to
have read it, and if any of you know
of others who you think, would like to
read it, you may add their names to
the list. I suppose it will be a year
before it will get around, but no
matter, I only wish I could tell things
so that they would be as interesting to
read as they are to see. Lovingly,
Eunice M. Atkins.
