THIS CHURCH DISPENSES LOAVES AvVI) FISHES winter there was a shortage of work in Emporia, Kan. The Rev. J. H. J. Rice took the matter up with his wealthy congregation. He announced that if persons who had dead trees on their property would notify him, he would send men to cut and chop the wood for fuel. As police judge Mr. Rice made arrangements with tfte city <o haul the wood to the homes of the men who did the work, or to those who would buy the wood. The pro ceeds went to the workers and a "la bor problem" in Emporia was solved. Mr. Rice is emphatic in his dec laration that he is only doing his duty. His theory in regard to his church is that it is his opportunity to serve the community. Mr. Rice holds that the church is an instrument of righteousness which should not de mand the entire service of its pas tor.—The Christian Herald. BROWN'S DECISION AND ITS EFFECTS Thousands of Youngsters Will Be Able to Keep on Work ing For the Present The announcement of Attorney Gen eral Brown that outstanding employ ment certificates will be valid after January 1 next affects 50,000 child worker in Pennsylvania. More than 20,000 of that number nre employed in Philadelphia. If the certificates had been pro nounced invalid, between 25,000 and 30,000 of the child workers would have been required to return to the regular grades In tho public schools which they were attending when they obtained their certificates. It is esti mated that in such event 12,000 chil dren woudl have returned to the al ready crowded schools in Philadel phia. The return of these children to the schoolroom would have been necessary because they could not have complied with the provisions of the new law that they must have passed the sixth grade before obtaining an employment, certificate. The announcement of the Attorney General will simplify the whole sit uation for the schools, the employers and the children. The school authori ties can now devote all their energies toward preparing for the establish ment of continuation schools, knowing .lust how many children they will have to prepare to accommodate in such schools. Employers can plan their business, knowing that/ they can de pend upon the continued service of their present juvenile workers. Their business will be continued without dis turbance of present conditions, beyond the necessity of sending their child workers to continuation classes eight hours per week. TTnder the new law juvenile workers between the ages of It and lt> may be employed nine hours daily, but not more than fifty one hours a week. An important effect, of the an nouncement of the Attorney General will be that no distress will be caused in families who have been largely de pendent upon the earnings of children between the ages of 14 and 16 years. Many inquiries regarding the phases of the subject have been made to the State Department of Labor and Industry and the definite as.yu-ance given by the Attorney General will make possible the giving of accurate answers to these questions. If there should develop an unusually large demand for employment, cer tificates under the present law before the first of the year, steps will be taken by the State Department of Public Instruction to prevent any abuse that may arise as a result of the Attorney General's decision.

Third Street M American Missionaries Imprisoned by Turkish Officials Passports Taken, Property Violated and Rights to Tell Consuls Denied (By the Religious Rambler) After many months, the facts have at last got out of Turkey concerning the "deportation" of Dr. and Mrs. Floyd I. Smith and their baby, mis sionaries of the American Board at. Diarbekir; and the story is one that in normal times would arouse the American nation to a fighting pitch. Hard on its heels comes the news of the sudden and mysterious death of another American board mission ary, Mr. Knapp, at the same place. There are intimations that he was foully dealt with by the Turkish offi cials, but no proof has as yet reach ed America. So fjir as the facts are known, Mr. Knapp reached Diar bekir one night apparently in good health, under military escort, en route to Harpoot. The next morning the officials announced that he was "seri otusly ill" and, shortly after, that he had died. The sensational experiences of Dr. Smith at Diarbekir give color to the fear that Mr. Knapp has been mur dered. What American missionaries think of conditions in Turkey at pres ent is clear from the simple fact that all of them who c.ould do so have sent their wives and children out of the country; and American diplomatic and consular officials have done the same. Whether the churches of America are to be called upon to face another Boxer ma'dness, this time in Turkey, remains to be seen. The opinion of missionaries is that if, by the sacrifice of a few American lives, the irresistible Indignation of the civilized world may be aroused over the Armenian atrocities and an end put to these, tho price paid would be small. More than one person in this coun try is now In possession of the well nigh incredible story of how an American citizen was robbed of his passport and denied his mail and all right of appeal to his government, and driven from his home, carried across the desert under arrest and put into a foul hole called a prison, and, after further removal, imprisoned again and tried by Turkish court mar tial. Staggering as in the story, this is its first publication, although read ers of this column were Informed months ago that the Smiths had been, for reasons unknown, deported from Diarbekir. The scene of the first of the out rages upon Dr. Smith is the ancient Roman city of Amlda, now called Diarbekir. As this city stands on a great precipice overlooking the Tigris river, and fronting toward the moun tains of Persia, it has been a strategic center for all the conflicts that have raged over this classic region since the days of Sargon the Great, of Assyria. Babylon, Persia, Greece, Borne. Islam and the Crusader, have fought for Diarbekir: and its "big mosque" was originally one of the most beautiful churches of antiquity. Kurd, Armenian and Arab con verge in Diarbekir. There is also a Jewish settlement in the city. Im portant as the walled city is, the American board has for years had only one representative in It, a mis sionary physician and his family. There are no other missionaries of any name, and no consular representa tive except a British vice-consul, who had'to leave when Turkey and Britain declared war. The archives of the consulate were turned over to the American mis sionary, but as the Turks tried to get them a British missionary woman •who 'was passing through took the responsibility tor burning them, to keep them out of Turkisn hands. American Representative slain Because it is so remote a spot, the Turkish officials seem to have felt free to go to lengths of high-handedness that are never dreamed of in the rela tions between nations. A British subject, named Albert Atkinson, was sent to Diarbekir and imprisoned. He carried a paper from the American Consul General at Con stantinople, Hon. G. Bie Pavndl, say ing that he was under American pro tection. He implored the missionary's help, but the latter could do nothing. Atkinson was kept In prison for a long time and then killed. The local agent of the Singer Sew ing Machine Company, an Armenian, was tortured and slain. Matosslan, the representative of the Standard Oil Company, wan reported dying in prison, and when the American mis sionary called on him he was refused admission, as were also members of the man's family. "Let him die like a dog," said the guard > and he did die, that same afternoon. The Gregorian bishop was terribly and fatally tortured. At first his heard was burned off, as an insult- Then later his fingers were pulled off, his teeth knocked out, two holes knocked In his skull, kerosene poured on the body and the match applied. Even members of parliament were not safe. An Armenian deputy return ed from Constantinople and gave him self to urging Armenians to comply with every Turkish regulation, such as the giving up of arms. But both he and his son were slain, enroute to Bitlis. A thousand Christians were put aboard goatskin rafts, bound for Mosul by the ancient Ninevah. Not one ar rived. Of the tortures of the Chris tians this is not the place to speak. It was for ministering to victims of Moslem atrocities that the American missionary. Dr. Floyd O. Smith, who has now safely reached Switzerland, was called to account. He did not seek them out; they brought their wounds to the humble little dwelling which serves alike as residence, dispensary and hospital. Some twenty villagers from Karabash, three hours' distant, survivors of a massacre; came afoot to the American doctor. Gunshot wounds, amputations at the wrist, long gashes in the neck, from attempted decapitation, knife, sword and ax wounds; several noses, and one case with the side of the skull cut away by an ax, and the brain protruding. Seventy-five per cent, of the wounded were women and children. According to the Moslems, Dr. I E ST HOP AGENCY I other day a man said to us, "Great s| Scott, everybody in Harrisburg must read M Hj your Want Ad Page. About a week ago, 1 had g? 'jflj some furniture in the house for which I had Kt no further use and put a Want Ad in the j|| TELEGRAPH to see if I couldn't sell some sgj fi|p of it.

Just call 4100 and let us help you word S your ad. It'll cost but a penny a word. What this other man has done, you can do, & M with a TELEGRAPH Want Ad. _ g Smith should have permitted no such Christian gatherings at his home. Ha was guilty, also, as he freely told them, of possessing four revolvers, for the protection of his wife and baby, and household. Also, by arrange-' ment with other missionaries, he had arranged a "code" whereby innocent phrases were made to report whatever news might develop, as, "All well." "Conditions improving," "Trying to leave; government refuses guard." "Massacres begun; foreigners in ex treme danger," "Notify embassy," etc. These most ordinary and natural pre cautions were the sum total of Dr. Smith's "offenses," as developed at th« courtmartial, and at various examina tions during the long period he was under arrest. There is not space to tell the story in detail. The premises were seized and searched and all documents taken. Whether a single stick or Instrument or medicine bottle will be recoverable is doubtful. On the journey to tlio coast with his wife and baby Dr. Smith was seriously ill. At Urfa ha was refused permission to lodge with the American missionaries. On the morning of July 4, Dr. Smith was put into a small, dirty, dark, sultry room at Aleppo, filled with vermin and occupied by fifteen native prison ers. Of course, no food Is supplied to prisoners by the Turkish government, i After this celotjatlon of "the glorlouaf Fourth," Dr. Swith was released from/ prison, but not from custody, by an American appeal to DJenial Pasha, commander in chief. When on July 20, he tried to leave Beirut by the United States warship Des Moines, he was again put into prison for three days, along with two score other prisoners. Then followed the courtmartial and final acquittal. Is it any wonder that. American Christians are praying these days for "the churches which are in Asia?" THE RELIGIOUS RAMBLER.
