■ . , 'V AN AMERICANS SIMPLE TALE. The Turks are at the present mo ment engaged in an endeavor to wipe out the Armenian nation before they are stopped. The prisoner came from a district where this was going- on. The cables must, have surely given his story in outline. Here it is in full—except what is left out what he heard from others. He said that at the beginning of the war he was fighting in the Cau • casus against the liussians. After a battle lasting a week he became ill, and, after protracted illness, was allowed with his brother, who. was also at the front to go home on leave. Their way home took them through the country of the persecution— every village teemed with evidence of it—often with the actual sight of it. "The Bishop of Siras," said the prisoner, "was arrested and exiled to a distant place. The Governor General gave orders to shoe his bare feet, just like a horse, saying sarcast ically, 'He is an old man and the "head of the Armenians of this dis trict; so, as an h...
