SPEAKS IN OMAHA CHURCH
The horrors of the Turkish perse-1

eye-witness yesterday morning at
Immanuel Baptist church. Miss
Rosie Baptist, a native of Armenia
and a teacher in that country, de
picted the horrible things done by the
"They have nearly wiped out our
nation, she said. "I was in Switzer
land when I heard of the serious iUV
ness of my mother. I tried to reach
her, but was unable to do so. Then
came word that my father was in the
hospital. The Turks came and
dragged him out into the street and
"In one house the Turks came and
killed all the people except one baby,
A Turk went to the cradle where the
baby was cooing, and the little one
reached up and took hold of his little
finger. Shaking off the hold of the
little hand, he grasped the babe by
the head, lifted it up and with" one
blow severed the head from the body.
"Ten women were taken and their
eyes gouged out. Then these mon
sters rubbed salt in the raw flesh to
increase the torture.
"They took one old woman, placed
a bottle filled with powder on her
head, set a fuse to it and blew her
"Of all the little countries that have
suffered Belgium, Poland, Serbia
i and Armenia the one that has suf

I The others lave been persecuted by
I enemies, but not by barbarian en

haven't been tortured simply for the
brutal pleasure of seeing tliem sutler.
"What makes it worse is that the
Koran teaches the Turks that it is
pleasing to God for them to kill the
Christians, and that they will gain re
ward according to the number of
Christians they kill.

Armenia is struggling also for its na

have died rather than gave up their

and Their Hair
Did It ever occur to you that every
movie actress you have seen has love
ly hair, while the most popular count
their curls as their chief beauty? In
fact (this is a secret), many are lead
ing ladies just because ot their attrac
tive locks. Inquiry among them dis
closes the fact that they bring out
all the natural beauty of their hair by
careful shampooing, not with any
soao or makeshift, but with a simple
mixture which they make up for them
selves by putting a teaspoonlul ot
canthrox (which they get from the
druggist), in a cup of hot water and
applying this instead of soap. After
its use their hair dries rapidly, with
uniform color. Dandruff, excess oil
and dirt are dissolved and entirely dis
appear. The hair is so fluffy that it
looks much heavier than it is. Its
lustre and softness is delightful, while
the stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth.
