At home and abroad thousands have been reached for Christ All of our needy, institutions have received aid that will en able them to launch out into bigger things.

Miss Sheltman is supervisor of one of the industries established by tht Near East Relfef at Stamboul, uear Constantinople. In letters to her parents and friends he tells the story of the Armenians, who are homeless and dying and awaiting crumbs which fall from America's hands. She also describes a visit lo a Turkish harem, the magnificence of which formed a striking contrast to the suffering all about her, she said: Writing of the general conditions Miss Sheltman says the atmosphere of Constantinople Is one of constant turmoil, strife and hatred. "The Turks try to run over the Armenians and the Armenians try to ran over the Turks," she said. "And all of them try to run over the JewB, who in turn retaliate." " Eats Dogs and Cats. She says that the former verdant fields of the Armenians are without- vegetation or life of any sort. There are no houses for the refugees, no crops, no living animals which might be used as food. All the cats, dogs and horses have been killed and eaten, she writes. She tells of one instance when she saw a group of persons carefully guarding live rats, which were to be killed and used as rooai when hunger could not be satisfied otherwise. Describing the homes of some Ar menians who. have ceased wandering back and forth from place to place, she says: "I followed the old sea walls' for several miles and saw persons living In ruins in dugouts, even In graveyards, utilizing tombstones for part of Jthelr Impoverished hovels. The filth .and wretchedness were unspeakable. (Even the beach was nothing but slime and tin cans and refuse of every kind, land the waves were black with the 'filth and debris that washed out with ;one wave with the next" A visit to one of the places of the Sultan of .Turkey affords a contrasting scene: "Yesterday we went to the Seraglio, one of the Sultan's places, through the different kiosks"(sum-'me- r houses), the library, the harem, etc. It was all beautiful. Such exquisite rich coloring, I have never seen before. We were ushered into a grear reception room, where we saf' around very stiff and formally, while the attendants passed cigarettes and Turkish coffee, served in gold cups, each of which was set with thirty largo Speaking of diamonds, diamond. though Constantinople is at present the most expensive place in the world to live, Jewelry is one of the things one can get for a song. Much of It ha& been brought In by Russian refugees." Where the Money Goes. Miss Sheltman is superintending the buying of materials for a "fabrica," an industry which furnishes employment for several hundred Armenian women and girls. Near the "fabrica" ,are orphanages of the Near East lief organization, where thousands of children are cared for. Enough food is given to them to keep the breath of life. It is here that the money collected in America goes after conversion Into food and supplies. Miss Sheltman says she lias no personal fear for her safety, for American ships are anchored in the harbor of Constantinople, and the Turk, because of his respect for America's power, does not-- disturb American citizens or the Armenians in industries and orphanagfs cperated by "Americans. However, in the outlying districts, the people are unprotected and the massacre goes on, much the same as it has for years, she writes. Writing of the wrk of the industries, Miss Sheltman tells with regret of the laying off of 100 workers, be- reand-back . -go-;in- Thedford's BLACK-DRAUGH- T $ $ ?lujstock of I t-- SHOES!

No helpful society of nations can be founded on justice and committed to peace until the covenants peace are sealed by the nations which were at war, )) sideration of pending appropriation bills was urged. "The Government is in accord with the wish to eliminate the burdens of heavy armament," .'aid the President. "The United States will ever be in harmony with such a movement towar.d the higher attainments of peace. But we shall not entirely discard our agencies for defense until-ther- e is removed the need to defend. We are ready to with other nations to appr disarmament, but merest prudence fordids that we discrm te x-im- ate alone."
