ADANA MASSACRES. m SURVIVOR'S TERRIBLE STORY. Detailed information is only now beginning to arrive concerning the terrible massacres which took place in the districts around Adana and Tarsus in April last. At Kozo- look, an Armenian village, the people, be- sieged by Turks and Kurds, were tricked into surrendering their arms, and then massacred 'with the most revolting cruelty, only a few escaping. One of the women survivors says: "They marched us for hours on the moun- tains, with one pretext or another, till they brought us to a level place not far from the Tarsus road. They at last told us they were going to kill us. They ordered us to lie down on tht ground in a row, with our heads to the west. We begged them to shoot us through the heart or through the head, but they said they did not want to waste powder and ball on swine like us-they would do the thing more cheaply. There was a great crowd of them. Four or five went at each of us with swords and daggers, hacking our heads and breasts. I cannot get the shrieks out of my ears. I was badly wounded, but not killed. They had made a great fire of dry bushes, and now they threw us all, dead and wounded into it. My three little children had not been killed; the men took my oldest and my youngest, a mere babe, and flung them into the flames, where they perished. I had my second child in my arms, and we were thrown into the fire togethei. I at once scrambled out, though badly burned, with the little one. I ran a short distance and sat down, dazed and weeping. A Turk had pity on me, and led me away. My husband and thirty other members of our large family were killed."
