there Is untold suffering in Armenia
and Syria. She praises the efforts of
the Near East Belief, formerly the
American Committee for Armenlnn ami
Syrian Belief, to save as many of
these people as possible. At Erlvan,
the capital of the Armenian republic, !
one hot meal Is given out dally, and by
this relief alone the city's death rate
bus been cut from u thousand dally to
an average of twenty. At Alexandre- i

Armenia were driven by thousands, the
situation is appalling, Miss Dakesian
says. It Is to avert these wholesale
deaths that Near East Belief is making
a uatiou-wido appeal for fupds.

Coal Gas as Automobile Fuel.
In the course of the world war many
motor vehicles were operated In Eng
land with coal gas because of, the
scarcity of gasoline. The gas was con
tained In collapsible hags made of rub
berized balloon fabric. At present,
however, compressed gas in steel cylin
ders Is being tried. It Is stated that
the gas Is forced in to pressures as
high as 2,250 pounds per square Inch.
The cost of compression Is stated to
vary between -40 and 75 cents per 1,000
cubic feet of free gas, and the cost ns
fuel In the engine Is equivalent to a
cost of 12 cents per gallon on the liquid
fuel replaced.—Scientific American.
