In another a regiment of convicts was t u r n e d loose on villages with rifles and sabres and the execution they wrought on helpless men, women and chiidreu -was beyond description. Finally he dwelt on the Armenians being driven from their homes into the desert land and of their starving condition .this leading up to the appeal for aid on the Dart of the people in succoring tbe starving thousands-Armenians and Assyrians, Dr. Ussher was oftentimes in" peril of his life in dealing with the Turks and only by putting on a bold front did he save fte day. During one of the attacks by the Turks on tbe Armenian quarter of Van he was struck on the nose by a bullet and carries the scar. Dr. Ussher and his wife,and several of their co-workers contracted typhus from refugees and Mrs. Ussher died. Dr .Dasher declared that his recovery was as plainly a miracle as any related in the Bible. Dr. Ussher's closing words were an appeal to Americans to remember when, they are having their vacations and living in comparative luxury that the starving thousands over 'there cannot live this month or next on last month's very meagre -strpply of food.
