"The Turk la a blot upon European civilization.

This statement is made by M. M. Mangasarlan, a native o!' Constanti nople. "This late uprising in Turkey, while .-upposed to be political," said he, "Is entirely religious. The Armenians are all Christians, and the Turks are Mohammedans. Christianity and Mo hammedanism have ilevcr mixed, and never will. The Christian missionar ies have been working in Turkey more than a hundred years, and 1 challenge anyone to find half a dozen converted Mohammedans in the whole Turkish empire.

"Since the adoption of the new con stitution in Turkey last summer, by which the Christians. lm had hith erto been spat upon and reviled as infidi Is by tin- Turks, were put on i basis of civic equality, these Christ ians have become intolerant.

He talis himself a grandson of Noah. Osmanli historians believe tli.it more than eight human beings were li- the ark. The additional person was the eldest on of Japlict, born during the flood, and ills name was Turk, they say. A descendant of Turk, in the fourth generation, om Alind Khan, had tvvo sons (twins). who were named Tatar-Khan and Mog d Khan. Tatar was the father of the Turks; Mogul was the father of the Mongol. Turka and Mongols were thus closely cennoct'd by birth, and the war which at once broke out between thi ni, and the reconciliations that speedily ensued, had much of the na ture of family quarrels. The Turks were the more frequent ly triumphant, one Mongol throne alter another yielding to their arirm. w ithout the cousins nursing greati r animosity than Is usually left behind ly wrangles among kinsman.
