I PUTNAM NATIONAL BANK OF PALATKA
An official dispatch received from
France savs that the Turks before
surrendering Jerusalem to the Brit
ish brutally mistreated Christian
priests, carried off the famous treas
ure of the Church of the Holy Sepul
chre valued at millions of dollars and
sent to Berlin the church's celebrated
ostensory of brilliants.
Monsignor Camassei, the patriarch
of Jerusalem, is said to hav'e been
deposed from his office, and Father
Piccardo, an Italian priest, to have
died from the effects of Turkish bru-
I talities.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre
had remained unmolested heretofore
during all ' the centuries of Moslem
occupation of Jerusalem.
The Church of the Hoi Sepulchre 1
was consecrated in the year 330 on i
the traditional spot where Christ
arose from the dead " In the year
P14 the buildings comprising the
cTiurch were destroyed by the Per
sians. The original building was in
the form of a rotunda, the shape of
which survives in the existing com
plex structure, which assumed vari
ous forms in the course of rebuilding
during the middle ages. The edifice
was badilv damaged by the fire of '
1808. The Greeks contrived to se I
cure to themselves the principal i
rights to xthe buildings and with the
Armenians contributed most of the
money for the erection of the new
church.- The dilapidated dome, be
neath which the sepulchre is situated
was restored by architects of various
nationalities in 18G8 as the result of
an aereement made by Turkey, France
and Russia.
