Excerpt from Pictures From the Balkans The good Christian at home, when told, shud ders, and being pious, Offers a little prayer that the day may soon come when the accursed Turk will be swept out of Europe, and the sorely tried but patient Christian people of the Balkan peninsula be free to live peaceably and worship as the heart and con science dictate. Very likely he sends a contribution to a Balkan committee to assist in the ble and patriotic work of feeding the destitute and driving the murderous Turks out of Europe.
