Armenia First Christian Nation. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
Armenia First Christian Nation. The Armenians are an Aryan race and probably emigrated from Europe Into Asia Minor centuries before the Christian era. Their language belongs to the Indo-European group of languages. Their king was converted to Christianity as early as 301 A. D., and Armenia then became the first Christian nation of the world. The Armenian civilization has been established fqr centuries. Thfe ppsition of the country on the highway between Asia and Europe has subjected it to Invasion and subjugation at various periods by the Assyrians, Medes, Greeks, Romans, Persians and Turks. From the Fourteenth century to the late war, the greatest part pf Armenia was under Turkish rule. Their eftmlty to the Turks rises frpm their struggles as a natlop tq be free, which have frequently been accompanied by massacres of Armenians. America’s interest arises from sympathy with au oppressed race that has for so long upheld Christian civilization In the Near East.
Payoneted Insects. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
Payoneted Insects. There is in Cuba a curious gras*. Cenehrus echinatus, which bristles with tiny sharp-pointed splkelets upon which multitudes of Insects are impaled, by night as well as by day. The wings of the victims are pierced and entangled by the barbed spikes, so that most of them are unable to get away, and thus perish miserably. Even a large, luminous snapping beetle, which is so strong and active that it can with difficulty be held ip the hand, falls a victim to these vegetable bayonets. It has been observed, however, that two species of insects, a large bug, Oebalus, and an earwig, readily free themselves from the spikes. Minute Insects are not caught The grass does not appear to derive any nourishment from its prey. It U found elsewhere in the West Indies and ip southern Florida.
