Story of aa Armenia Girl.
"Last summer there waa a young Arme
nian, really a beautlfal young girl. Ehe had
been engaged to a young man ever since
be was 11. She had lived In his mother's
house and he, coming to this country, soon
after their engagement had sent back

his own feelings. He had had her photo'

Experience of am Engllsk Woman.
"An English woman left laat week who
waa with us for about two months. 8hs
had lived In America for several yeara and
went homo to visit her mother. While In
England a slater died and the woman cm
returning brought one ot the dead sister'
children with her. v
The child waa 111 when the ship arrived
and had to be taken to the hospital. The
woman's husband and children oame over
from their home In Pennsylvania to meet
her, but there was no gctng home for her.
Of course, we were not going to allow her
to leave the sick child here alone.
It waa pretty hard for her to see her
husband and children go back home with
out her. finally, however, one of the rnlo-
slonkrles became Intereatad In her case.
They asked far her to be paroled and al
lowed to go to the Immigrant Girls' home
In New York. After being there for a day
or two her parole was extended to allow
her to visit her family. Last week she waa
written to to come for her Utile niece."
From the women's detention room the
matron let the way across the hato the

Into the plate a number of duck dressed
young men were placing first a larga ball

squad followed with bowl of vegetable
soup, on for each place.
