LESS ONE After Russians Took Ashkalla Was Again Deserted Now I Finds Refuge and Friends In America. p New York. July 1. Sometimes when little Ankeen Armenagian is alone she "will break into a sing-song1 recital of the awful story of the fate of her family at their home in the town of Ash-kalla, Turkish Armenia, at the hands of stables: ; "My father was killed; J My mother was killed; k My slsterwas thrown into the river." '' Ankeen will repeat this bare outline, ..which any one who has read of the recent massacres of the Armenian people jean fill in with terrible detail,, over and .over in a wrapt manner as if she were living again the awful experience she 'went through. Then she will suddenly jshout in Turkish, "Yallan! Yallan!" meaning "It's a lie! It's a lie!" An- 'keen's new friends, the American mis- jeionaries who brousrht her to the Unit ed States, think the Turkish family - -which saved her life taught her to say Yallan" at the end of the story they could not stop her from telling. ' NAME MEANS PRICELESS. Ankeen is three years old". Her name -in English means "priceless." It was her mother's name for her baby, per ..haps, or the one her father chose for -his tiny dark-eyed girl. Her face is "sweet but seems a little saddened and Jier manner is loving. Excepting that her father was a tailor and a Christian, no one knows anything about her. She was found wandering In the de-jserted" streets of Ashkalla the Jast fweek of March by some Armenian sol-diers of the Russian army. The Russians had driven the Turks from the vicinity of Ashkalla a few days before and the Turkish family-which befriended the child at the time of the massacre f her parents and sister must have Tfled in great haste. The soldiers cared -for Ankeen for twoor three days and Jthen took her to the home of the Robert Stapleton, the director of the Amer--ipan schools at Erzroom the principal rity of the region not far away. The Stapleton's home was a rendezvous for .Armenian refugees. LOST OWN LANGUAGE. ; Ankeen seemed to have lost her own language and acquired that of the Turks in the short time she had lived "with the family which befriended her, "but the Armenian language is now coming back to her. Gradually the mis-'Eionary and his wife drew from her the ,fate of her family and every kindness was shown to the child. The Staple-tons were then preparing to return to the United States and rather than leave the orphaned girl to an unknown fate among strangers concluded" to bring her to the United States with them. ; She arrived at Ellis Island with three other Armenian girls the first week of June. After a few days' delay, the St5-pletons provided the guarantee required by the government In the case ox aepenaent children and the girls were released. Ankeen is now iY tege of Miss Blanche Atkins, a teacher hi tne St. Cloud, Minn., Normal school, -wnose sister was a missionarv in v.r-r room and who died two years ago of smaapox. Th "priceless one" will remind Miss Atkins of the sisters who died in Armenia. o- CLAIMS CORN HONORS Welding Our Specialty) f Cast Iron and steel gear wheels or 1 j any other parts of broken machin- g ery can be repaired perfectly by our !
