Bodies of Armenian Women
Burned and Ashes Sifted
-in Search of Jewels Be
Parii, Jan. 3. (Havas)-In giv
ing details of the Armenian mas
sacres in Turkey'in the last five
years, the Constantinople correspon
dent of the Petit Parisien says that
at one time 100 000 "Armenians were
concentrated for alleged strategical
reasons at Dorgor, Arabia.
The Turkish government in Con
stantinople thought the number was
too high and gave orders that 80,
000 of the Armenians be put out
of the way.
"In the Mush valley," the corre
spondent adds, "the Kurds robbed
2,000 Armenian women. Later sus
pecting that the women had swal
lowed their jewels, the Kurds killed
them in a horrible manner and burn
ed the bodies. The next day, the
correspondent continues, these mon
sters quietly sifted the ashes, seek
ing the jewels."
The correspondent reports that
in the same region,' 7,000 children
between 3 and 10 years of age died
of starvation, and 100 women were
buried alive in trenches which the
Turks first forced them to dig.

v for at Least
Deaths During War
London, Jan. 3. Of the insects
responsible for the death or disable
ment of hundreds of thousands in
the war zone, the louse is declared
authoritatively to have been one of
the most deadly and to have ac
counted for at least a million per
sons. This, however, is only a rough
estimate, and the probability is that
the total was infinitely higher, for
in Serbia alone typhus, a Jouse-
borne disease, infected nearly one
million persons and killed 500 a
day in the little city of Jassy, while
200 of the 1,200 medical officers in
the country died of the disease.
Tbi disease spread over Russia,
Austria, Germany and the Balkans
These figures arev vouched for in
a publication prepared by Lieu
tenant Lloyd, chief entomologist in
Rear Admiral Zane Dead.
Washington, Jan. 2. Rear Ad
miral A. V. Zane, U. S. N. retired,
died today at his residence in this

Second American Army
May Take Place of Third
in Occupied Hun Region
Coblem, Jan. 3. Maj. Gen. Rob
ert L. Bullard, commanding the
Second army, arrived in Coblenz to
day. There have been "rumors that
the Second army soon would take
over the occupied area, relieving
the Third army, and that the divi
sions at present holding the Rhine
bridgehead here would be anions
the first to start for home.
A rise of three feet in the waters
of the Rhine and Moselle rivers
flooded the Iowr streets of Cob
lenz and villages along both rivers.
Cold Weather Interferes
With Train Service in West
The intense cold, general over the
entire central west, has put a crinio
in passenger train service. Trains
running on time are the exception,
rather than the rule. Generally they
are one to two hours late, with some
much more than this behind their
.There is not enough snow to in
terfere with the train service, but
the cold is so intense that engines
cannot make and keep up steam.
