A thousand years before Christ a
distinct Armenian people occupied this
region and paid tribute to a line, of
noble kings and boasted of culture and
learning. , .. rv"- '.
Their kingdom extended from the
Black Sea and the . Caucasus moun

of bitter conflict between Mohamme-'

A hundred years of peace followed, be

king, Ashod I. Through it . all Ar

Byzantine , and Mongol invasion
brought a series of subjugations and
secutions which have not ended to the

When the Ottoman Turk set up his

century he got a grip on the land that

. .". . ' ToWant Brief Period.
. Mohammed .the conquered was tol
erant for a time. He left the Chris
tions alone, though granting . them no
civil recognition unless they embraced
; Mohammedianism. Armeanians became
the traders and business men among
the. Turks, nd were loyal as citizens,
though they clung to their ancient
language and religion. . -'
Armenia, in time, on the ever-changing
map of Europe, was divided among
Turkey,. Buss la and Persia. ; But Tur
key controlled most. Russian nihilists
provoked revolts in 1885. and warfa-e
marked by extreme cruelty, on both
sides was waged.
Turkey intrusted her subduing of th-a
rebels to the savage Kurds, and then
began the massacres which have stirred
the civilized world and made the name
of Turkey infamous.
-In 1894 England. France and Russia,
backed up by their warships, mad the
saltan promise restitution and reform's.
The Armenians wanted safety, a share
Jn the government , and proportional
( Commit Atrocities. . ."
. But the Turks and the Kurds were
illy curbed and the massacres con
tinued. Villages were devastated, fam
ine and plague followed. ..The Turkish
government reluctantly permitted the
Red Cross to bring relief to the suf
ferers. The outrages became fewer' for
a time. . But In August. 1896. a mob In
Constantinople, spurred on by govern
ment agents, beat to death 4,000 Ar
menians because of an attack by a
group of Armenians on the Ottoman
' bank. :, v' '',
Determined efforts to stamp out the
entire Armenian race followed this out
break, and European alliances became
so entangled that no power dared 6
step in and compel the inhumanity to
' cease. ' . ;
- Fanaticism and cupidity of the lg
' norant subjects of the Turkish govern
ment were played on, and they came to
see the extermination of the Armenian
as a religious duty, with confiscation
of his property as tKe re wara. ,
: .Thousands' Pie. -t:.' .
With the outbreak of the great , war
and the entrance of Turkey on the side
of Germany, the extermination - of. the
Armenians was quickened. They, were
slaughtered by thousands ln their
homes and villages. They were herded
together for deportatlo- and started
on marches of hundreds of miles which
had for their purpose only the death
by exhaustion and starvation of the
marchers. Hundreds whose vitality
carried them far were - butchered by
the roadsides. Mothers with babes
who fell out were either slain. or left
to starve. Turkish officers boasted of
the numbers , whose death. they had
compassed.1 It Is estimated that 2,000,-

Washington. March 31. The -report
of the first 1215 cases of disabled sol
diers approved for 'retaining by. the
federal board for vocational education
shows that 245 selected agricultural
training . In some , of '. its various
branches and specializations. ' These
cam pare almost Identically with " the
selection in ." commerc-. . industries.
trades' and' professions. and ' indicate
a growing Interest, on the part of dis
abled men.. - , V
, .Wliile the number of those electing
agricultural education and ; retraining
have not approached the percentage of
those electing agricultural education
in other nations, . it is predicted by an
officer of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture that there, will
be a very great Increase within the
next- thirty to sixty days, of those
selecting "agriculture, the . event, of
spring averting a psychological effect
upon the men.
The great' advance In the Invention
and manufacture of agricultural ma
chinery have placed agriculture as an
industry ! on a par with all others; It
Is the leading Industry and is repre
sented today-by 51 per cent compared
by 49 per cent , representing all other.
Industries combined. The .importance
of . agricultural .' machinery has. . placed
farm mechanics- among ' the : most
prominent' features of agriculture, and
at the same time gives an opening; in
a njy profession of great importance
to disabled soldiers - who have had
experience, with the tank. the truck,
the automobile and. other lines of ma
chinery. , " Such, i experience, coupled
with .-vocational training in a short in
tensive course as - offered by . the "fed
eral board,' will prepare the' rehabili
tated soldier: to efficiently meet the
demands created by modern develop
ment in farm machinery. The call for
specialised, trained men is constant
ly increasing.' . . '
Washington, April - Improvement
In general business conditions, and. the
continuance of our undertone of confi
dence In, the t essential .strength and
soundness of ' the country's economic
position was reported today in the
Federal Reserve Board's review of the
business ' situation. ... Toward the end
of March in all districts' the price
situation was said to be still .the con
trolling factor while the actual; situa
tion was . unchanged " fundamentally.
Symptoms are; reported pointing to
the Improvement in near - future of
prospects 'and - more complete - read
justment of business to normal con
ditions. The continuous, though mod
erate decline of prices is also noted.
London. April T Just as soon v as ;
aircraft regulations have been " def 1- .
nitely a ranged by v the peace confer- i
ence. an airplane passenger .and
freiaht service will be Inaugurated be-
tween the principal cities of (England J
and the continent, it Is announced, it
will be an experiment only insofar a
the whims of" the public are concerned,
as the ' fifteen machines to be used
all saw more trying service in night
bombing' , work during the latter
months of ; the war. ;
There is no doubt in the minds of
the promoters that the project will be,
popular at first among . those who en- i
joy adventure and are not. hampered
by lack of. funds but, In making the
announcement of the . new service, F. J
Handley Page said that his company
wanted to put the service purely on
a . business basis and; that charges ,
would not be out of. reach of the averr j
age ' merchant who might want goods,
transported quickly . or make quick i
trips to Europe. ' j
' Announcement ; of the plans was j
made simultaneously with the first '
public exhibition of a passenger-car-
rvi-ntr a.lrnla.nA In Tondon. The . plane
Is one of the night bombers with the
fuselage equipped . :o accommodate 17
passengers. It rw service over Qer
man cities but appeared much differ-j
ent on exhibition. Hugh glass win- J
dows had been cut into the sides of the (
fuselage showing - the r saloon fitted
with - heavily upholstered leather j
chairs lined on each side of the car- j
rlage with a narrow isie Detween.
Space is provided for-sixteen passen
gers inside. ..The 17th one sits outide
In the very ; "bow; of the machine In
the seat formerly occupier by a gun
ner. .. - . . '' . : ;. .."' ;.r " " ". ..''..
The machine has a lifting capacity j
of : six and one -half tons exclusive of
its own weight, it fitted with four mo
tors, two tractors and two pushers and
travels - at an " average speed of 100
miles an hour. ' - -
The company which will operate the j
service, already has laid its plans for S
getting business and for "feeder" ser- j
vices tapping its main lines of travel.
E. J. Bray,, formerly European ; traffic j
representative of the National railway j
of Mexico, has become traffic manager
of the Handley Page, Ltd.. and , Is. at
work on purely the traffic end of the
enterprise. ?V ' '; .
Those interested in the project point
out that as ' far as the machines - are
concerned . this ' Is not an experiment
and maintain that it Is the most am
bitious ' plan yet conceived for' com
mercial use of the airplane. , No es
pecial effort will.be made to get great
speed but every, effort will be made,, as
the. service .increases . to construct
larsrer machines" which will give "pas
sengers greater eae and freedom and j
will be capable or carrying several

' A- comon point of discussion among
soldiers who- are 'returning from the
Old World is the element of stylo
which played such an - importast . part
In 'the clothes worn by 'the officers of
European armies. Upon the arival of
our men In France there was a notice
able rise in the ' demand for tunics
having more swank and better fitting
power, The privates no less than the
officers were quick to notice that in
the European armies more regard was
given to the set-up of the uniform.
