Vb Luul Oppnd hf tfu lapeak- aM Turk and Harawd by tka Cruel Kard Wm the Blrthplac Mu" Saoc-IU AneUnt R1J1- The recent massacre of Christians In Anneal, tbe news of which horrified the civilized world, is a result of the ancient enmity between the Armenians and their Kurd neighbors, a fend which has apparently been fostered and en -couraged by the Turkish officials. The Turks claim, in extenuation of the cru elties for which 'they are held tesponsi ble, that the Armenian, who are eirag cling for political autonomy, themselves provoked tbe quarrel which led to tbe massacre, as & outrage was necessary . in order to enliat the sympathy aid- In terference of Christian nations Lb their behalf. Whether this theory bo ooiiect or not, worldwide indignation -haxtSlsea aroused, and the Intervention cl Euro pean powers seems likely to follov. If All elae fails. Armenia may look for ward to Russian annexation at no dis tant day and to consequent freedom from Mohammedan persecution. The Kurds, who haro In this case ap parently been the instrumental of the aultan'a displeasure, are i-pfmbf JIo hamnxedans in religion and. dalij2i In despoiling and persecuting the Christian Armenian.

' Wl " Armenia possesses peculiar historical interest on account of its great antiquity. There is a legend which is not without much conflrsaatory evidence tnac Aaam xr&a an Armenian, and that in the pic turesque' region hear 'the' headwaters of the Euphrates was situated the garden of Eden. Ararat is in Armenia, and so it seems Tjrobable that Noah was one of that country's old settlers: The ancient navigator must have landed on a snow bank nnless the climate of that region has greatly changed since his time, for it is now said that : tfia snow has. never been known to melt on 'Ararat-though in tho valleys a mild and salubrious climate prevails.

The bounda ries of the conntrv have varied CTcatlv at different periods and now embrace an area of about 150,000 miles, although they are not officially fixed. .They touch the Caucasus mountains on the north, run nearly to the Caspian sea on the east and extend west to the Euphrates. It is estimated that not more than o. 000. 000 Armenians now remain in their native country, while 3,000,000 or 4,000,000 are scattered in other lands.

Equally absurd are those medical ad visers who prescribe for the symptoms and not the. source of a disease. Of tentimes they do this because the patient desires it, unwisely demanding that eruptions or other skin troubles be effaced at once. To do this it is necessary to use poisonous applica tions, which must sooner or later ag gravate the disease or cause it to ap Yftr in new and more dangerous form. There is scarcely a single ill to wliich flsh ia heir but what has its origin in impure blood. Therefore, the only way to cure incs c iruuua-s uuuugu testimonial as to its value.
