But Smokers Will Wonder How That
Tobaccoless Pipe Must Taste
M. Maeterlinck is among those who
have freed themnelves from the bond
age of tobacco by means of a curious
artifice. Accordlug to his biographer,
, M. Gerard Harry, ' without the help
of tobacco he seemed incapable of re-
| reiving inspiration or crystallising it
' iu words. If he has not overcome the
, need, he has outflanked it. Smoking,
he noticed, had lost Its virtue as a
' stimulant, and instead of rousing the
brain to activity, as at first, had come
to disturb its functions; so now, in
lieu of ordinary tobacco, he fills his
bowl with a denlcotlnized preparation,
tasteless indeed, but harmless. His

than a mere subterfuge Intended to

at tbe offices of tbe board by way
They tell a thrilling
story of the last desperate weeks be

Turks were determined to crush the
Armenians, when tbe mission prem

longstanding and well-grounded dis
satisfaction on the part of the Arme
nians with the Insincerity and in
justice of the 'Young Turk’ party in
power. This feeling has grown strong
since Turkey declared war against
Russia nix months ago.
"This suicidal rush Into the fray
was a most unpopular move among
Moslem and Christian alike, but its
consequences bore most heavily upon
tbe latter, who were pressed into
service and then deprived of their
arms and forced to work as day labor

Punish Rebels, Was Order.
“It was small wonder that as many

service or refused to be enlisted. The
government naturally regarded their
course as nothing less than treason,
so when a strong governor-general, the
brother-in-law of Enver Bey, was ap
pointed to Van. hie flrat concern was
to punish tbe rebels.
"Three weks ago last Friday tbe
military head of this revolutionary fac
tion. with two of his companions, was
killed at command of the vali, who
had sent them to Shaddakh as official
peace commissioners to settle a ques
tion between the government and the
revolutionists. Another prominent Ar
menian leader, a member of parlia
ment. was seized and deported to the
capital. April 17, the day word was
received of the assassination of the
revolutionary leader, Ishan, Doctor
Hasher and Mr. Yarrow (also of the
American board) were called by the
vali, who told them plainly that he
was determined to crush the rebel

of tho whole Armenian pqpulation, but
that he would prefer not to injure
the women and children.
Refuse Turkish Guard.
“As we proposed to open our prem
ises to refugees ho urged placthg n
guard of SO Turkish soldiers here. We
at first consented to the suggestion,
but the revolutionists said experience
had taught them the soldiers could
not bo trusted. They were unwilling
to allow the soldiers to come. We
have been thankful many times since
that they refused to do so.
"That evening we consulted with
Signor Sbardone, Italian consular
agent, the only consul left in the City
to represent our Interests and those
of other foreigners. It was midnight
before our plana were made. That
very evening neighbors began to bring
in beds, carpet*, boxes and wheat, as
those who realized the situation con

had church services as usual, but all
day long tho streams of people poured
through the gates. Men, women and
children were loaded with their house

to bring piles of bedding and beauti

tho poor hurried in with their pitiful
treasures of bare necessities.

Hay Obtained for ths Cattle.
“Moat of tho horses In the city had
already been seized by the govern

hay for the cows, which had to be

building as our small stable was full.
We have had such a rainy spring that
the ground was too wet to store goods
outside so we packed the basements
of our now school buildings from floor
to colling with boxes, bedding and
bags of wheat and flour, reserving all
rooms above for the people we knew
would need them.
“Before we had dressed Monday we
had had applications for rooms from
half a dozen families and by night
we In our houses had a regular hotel
of more than seventy people, while

"Tbe need of such protection Is evi

our roof, and forty or more bullet
holos in tbe walls and the broken
windows through which four balls
have entered our living rooms. Some
times the air hums with the constant
flying of bullets over and through the
premises, and It is a miracle that so
few have been hurt.
It was an ex

cannon ball struck the wall of our
house only ten inches above tbe bead

How Armenians Make Ammunition.
"Th* Armenians have shown won
derful Ingenuity In making gunpow
der, dynamite bombs and serviceable
bullet*. They make a mortar to throw
bombs, and now are at work on four
cannon, the only weapons the Turks
have which they have not. I visited
their cartridge factory last week. It
was most interesting to see tbe proc
ess from the start, when disks of
copper were cut from plates, to the fin
ished product of a polished cartridge
with even English lettering on the
end. Everything was handmade, but
between 2,000 and 3,000 cartridges is
the daily output.
"I never imagined that I could be
so interested in munitions of war, or
hope so fervently that the revolution
ists should win, but it is now a ques
tion of saving the remnant of the peo
ple from massacre and starvation, of
defending their lives and homes from
fiendish cruelty, and we exult over
every advance of the little band and
pray that iu some way permanent help
way ccme to them.
"After three weeks of fighting in
the city the Armenians have th« ad
vantage. But in the defenseless vil
lages the story is very different. It
is wholesale and systematic massacre
of as many as possible and the taking
of many prisoners and sending them
later to the head of the revolutionsts
to be fed. In this way starvation will
finish the slaughter.
"From the first the most of our refu
gees were villagers, some from many
miles away. When our premises could
hold no more the houses near by and

are being fed in tho gardens. It is
impossible to do justice to their con
dition. Fleeting without time to col
lect their food, they come to us rag
ged, barefoot, hungry and sick from
exposure and fear.
"Many of the regular Turkish sol
diers are averse to butchery, so the
vali has promised plunder and glory
to the lawless Kurds, who are nothing
loath to do his will. One morning
40 women and children, dying or
wounded from Turkish bullets, were
