He returned in from Scotland. So he bought one which he immediately broke and in which to her great amazement he found a gold ducat. Mr Black motioned him to sit down at some distance and taking a seat himself, they entered into conversation in the course of which he observed taking out a silver snuff box and pencil case from his pocket.

Mr Black stared in with some explanation of surprise, identified them as his own and abstracted from his pocket with the few minutes they had been engaged in discourse, although he declared the man had never in his consciousness been near him. On going to visit him next morning he found him busy chewing something between his teeth with all his might. He had literally taken Dr Zohrab at his word and after emptying the contents of the paper down his throat he had finished by swallowing the envelope. The stupidity and absurdity of the thing did not appear so great when both the young doctors at table said that the Turks have a great opinion of verses from the Koran written on paper which they get from the Imams and take as remedies for various kinds of sickness.

Dr Zohrab also prescribed a large poultice for an external application to the stomach and some pills and a draught to be taken inwardly. He found his patient finishing the last spoonful of the poultice preparatory to taking the other medicine, grumbling very much of the enormous quantity and the suffocating sensation of fullness it occasioned. March 9. Dr Zohrab recalled to Mr Hanson a recollection of an attempt to commit suicide A few years ago a ship came here addressed to Mr Hanson whose captain in consequence of having lost his wife was subject to extreme depression of spirits.

The change of scene at Constantinople was not at all favourable to his recovery and in a fit of despair he attempted to terminate his existence by taking opium. The quantity not being sufficient to kill him he determined to try again, purchased another immense dose which he swallowed. Mr Hanson was sent for and Dr Zohrab who immediately attempted to administer something to prevent the opium taking effect. No entreaties however or remonstrance could prevail with the infatuated man to swallow the contents of the cup. He constantly repeated that he was weary of life and had taken the poison on purpose to die; why should he do anything to prevent the very effect he most wished.

Mr Hanson sat by his side on the bed arguing with him in vain for some time, putting the draught to his lips when a sudden thought struck him and he changed the whole tenour of the argument with almost instantaneous success. The opium you have taken is not enough to destroy life immediately, but will cause you lingering torment, whereas if you take this medicine and get well again, you can blow your brains out with a pistol and end your suffering in a moment which will be a much more speedy pleasant way of dying.

At the end of the last century, 18 th , Hodja Hanna Zohrab, father of the late Dr, was 1 st dragoman to the Dutch legation in Constantinople. Dr Zohrab in entered the service of the Khedive Ismail Pasha as family physician, got the title of Bey and gift of a farm at Broussa to which on departure of Ismail Pasha from Egypt he retired about 2 months ago. He returned to Constantinople and took up his abode at Therapia where he died in He leaves no wealth but that of the good name who has followed him through life He got his discharges through Admiral Walker.

He never mentioned the fact of his presence, and the Pasha never alluding to his being missing. Either the Binbashi, chief of men, has kept it close or the Higher Authorities think it unnecessary to tell Sir Baldwin Walker.

The Capitan Pasha was the person who read it aloud to the rest, yet the next day when the Admiral made a visit of compliment to tell him of what steps he had taken, he chose to appear as if he had been left in utter ignorance of all that had passed. He was out with a party of his servants when an elephant detached from the rest of the herd, in which situation, they are more than usually furious, came running towards him.

There was some fault in the cap and his gun did not go off. A moment more and the animal rushed directly in him, seized him in his trunk and threw him over a declivity at some yards distance. One of his armes with legs and ribs were broken and he became totally insensible. The narrative of what further happened to him was supplied by the servants who looked on him from the asylum in the trees.

The elephant having flung him down the hill paused a moment and then began to consider about following him to complete his destruction but the ground was soft and slippery from heavy rains and covered with thick bushes liable to entagle its feet. It attempted to go straight towards him but slipping, changed its purpose and walked leisurely round.

As soon as it got with a yard or two, it stretched out its foot for the purpose of crushing his head, their invariable mode, but it chanced to miss by about an inch and sunk instead into the soft ground. It then advanced its trunk, ripped up his trousers to the very top, waved a detached piece of them over his head and departed apparently satisfied and triumphant. His servants took up the unfortunate victim, shattered almost to pieces and conveyed him home, where he was so well attended by able surgeons that some months afterwards, when the other gentleman who related the story left Ceylon, he was not only likely to do well but progressing rapidly towards convalescence.

She said that without children she should be perfectly untouched, look forward to a life of most joyless and melancholy prospect. So much did he wish his younger son, a fair handsome youth, to inherit the Empire, he often asked the Greek physician whether he thought Abdul Medjid would live and whether he had not a poor constitution and a delicate chest, not in an anxious tone, but as if he wished his fears and anticipations to be confirmed. Aug 1 - Case of Plague in Therapia.

Oct 6 - Earthquake, 3 shocks, 2. Oct 15 - Mrs Hanson strung her harp. June 8 - This morning little Henry met with an accident that might have been most serious and even fatal in its results. He fell from one of the windows of the Kiosk, but his fall was broken by the branches of a vine growing up it and the injury received amounted only to 2 or 3 severe bruises and a slight dislocation of a collar bone.

The surgeon of the French Brig came to examine the child and ascertain the extent of the injury. No English physician near. Mrs Hanson, whose feelings in such matters are exquisitely keen and tender, was so affected by the thought of what might have happened to him from such a fall that he wept like a child for a considerable time before he went to bed. Ongley and arrived at Therapia, with the Sarells in October. Lord Ponsonby being English Ambassador at the time.

Apparently Miss Brown came out to the Sarells Oct. Dr Zohrab was sent for from Pera. But knowing the unavoidable delay and remembering from her experience of such feverish attacks how important it was to master the fever as soon as possible, she put on leeches, my memory seems to say At any rate it was goodly number. Wehn Dr Zohrab came, he told her that she had done quite rightly and humanly speaking had saved his life. The Plague - When in my father was going to England he rode to Belgrade to avoid quarantine which in those days must have been a terrible ordeal. Avoiding touch was supposed to be the sole thing she heard that in..

I remember as a boy having to stand for some little time as a punishment for some misdemeanour in the high stand-up cupboard in which my father used to be disinfected on his daily return to Therapia from Galata, changing the clothes that he had been wearing. Money was passed through water, touching other people when going about was avoided and sundry other precautions were taken. Years after Plague had become a thing of the past owing chiefly to strict quarantine, cholera appeared and there have been bad visitations.

These were Government property and were always supposed to be a cause of unhealthiness especially in the summer when the salt water was evaporating. The farm occupied a plain almost surrounded on the land side by hills with 2 or 3 miles of coast, 3, acres in extent. I remember hearing that when in his younger days my father went about the country lying near the coasts of the Sea of Marmora for shooting pheasants, woodcock, ducks and large game, he got attacks of intermittent fever and for years after he had given up his longer expeditions and apparently got rid of it.

He could not eat cucumber or row down the Bosphorus past the Sweet Waters of Asia, where there was a swamp and the air laden with the marshy smell, without getting a return of the fever. It took years before he was so to speak immune and could enjoy his cucumber salad etc.

As a sportsman my father was anxious to have no disabilities for his life policy, so when Atlas Life Insurance asked him what facilities he needed he mentioned that he had need to go to his farm also to Smyrna where his brother lived and for shooting they made a very satisfactory arrangements, leaving him free to go to these and other places he named and within 10 miles of the coast.

In years later a friend having omitted to provide for these contingencies, could not accept his invitation to spend the night at Candilli, being in Asia. In his early days the mail used to arrive at Constantinople once a fortnight, leaving.. Therapia - When we lived at Therapia on the quay, when I was a boy we constantly saw Turks, sellers of various commodities, who stopped on the road side spread their carpet, knelt down and say their prayers.

The Persian trade via Trebizond, Erzeroum etc. Even when the Russians having conquered the Circassians made a railway from Poti to Tiflis, merchants and travellers preferred the Trebizond route as it was always thought of political strategy and commercial importance that the Turkish Government should give its utmost attention to it, but fate and inertia were against them.

Eventually the Russians perfected their railway system and secured Batoum, the only good port excluding Sinope on the South coast of the Black Sea, and Kars the fortress which really commanded Erzeroum and neighbourhood. The through trade was of course lost. The regular lines endeavoured to choke off the others by cutting down fares, at one time deck passengers were carried gratis and one company at last out-did the others by giving even deck passengers his full of pilaf [ rice ] each day.

He lost no time in ordering his caik [ rowing-boat ] and taking his gun rowed after them. He succeeded in shooting one and another was shot by a villager. This last had fish in its pouch. Then at school at gradually dropped this and acquired our English way of pronouncing it. Returning to Constantinople, I soon lost this and returned to my first love, for I was always told that having had a Greek nurse, I really spoke Greek before English.

I remember the delightful excursions we used to have on birthdays especially in our large Caik to various places from Therapia on both sides of the Bosphorus to the Black Sea. My father had stables for horses and cows beyond the gardens and terraces and a Greek groom by the name of Sotiri who used to fill an old grand piano case with horse chestnuts for the cows. They seemed to relish and thrive on them.

An old retainer, Demetri Sakelario, had some leech ponds at Beicos where he reared and kept them for the market. In those days leeches were freely prescribed and used. When the Hon. My father in his shooting excursions got some wild boar now and then. He gave me the tusks of boar that he had shot, which afterwards I gave to Cecil. Divine Service during the summer must, I think, have been held in the Embassy at Therapia, the Chaplain officiating and probably in the same orangery where in later years we attended now and then, being rowed up from Candilli.

It was at this period that I used to wavea flag, towel or anything I could tie on to a pole to salute Captain Williams on his way to Trebizond. It was a wonderful sight to see the number of sailing vessels passing through the Bosphorus when a spell of Southerly wind had changed the usual currents enabling them to get to the Black Sea. I remember hearing that one day some one was charged by my father to count the number that passed Therapia. The number proved to be Major General Sir H. Rawlinson Bart G. India Co.

At a spot some hundred miles north of Behistan he discovered two inscriptions in the unknown writing, obviously proclamations by the great king of those ancient times - he observed that each was headed by 2 seperate groups of signs. These were in the first inscription. From his profound knowledge of history of the ancient Persians, he presumed the 3 kings in question were probably Darius, the son of Hystaspes, and Xerxes the son of Darius From this small beginning, with the infinite toil and astonishing ingenuity after 12 years of study, he eventually succeeded in resolving every detail of the long lost language and supplied the key which unlocked the door closed for over 2, years, and placed at the disposal of the modern world, the written records of the great empires of the Ancient East.

We landed in Southampton and rented a house in Sussex Place. My aunt Lady It was not then a satisfactory school and on my mother, the family including C. Pritchard Wrangler Cambridge where I remained until midsummer Soon after my father returned to Constantinople, he was asked by Sultan Abdul Medjid to sell his house at Therapia as he wished to present it to the British Government and H.

My father agreed to fall in with H. On the other side of the latter was the British Embassy. All the gardens were thrown into one. An old Armenian family had built the splendid large house and the garden was terraced and supplied with large cisterns. It had been the custom of wealthy Armenians and Greeks to have their properties rather out of sight and not attracting attention by show of paint and on the shores of the Bosphorus which exposed them to danger.

My father used to refer to a special 3 oared caik, which was known as portending danger for some reason or other both to Christians and Turks. Candilli My father purchased a large wooden house adjoining Dahlian [ Fishing Station? This landing place was thus called as in former days i. My father bought the property chiefly for the large boathouse and bathing arrangements which he needed. My first recollections of the tennants of the house after , were that it was let to the British officers and draughtsmen who were drawing out maps of the Turco-Russian Boundary Commission, Lieut Glascott Benjamin Handley and?.

Then Mr and Mrs Edward Ede rented it and finally my father let my sister Adeline and Harry Rumball, her husband live there until the house was burnt and nearly everything in it. Pritchard D. I am equally assured that the general development of human knowledge is friendly to these considerations. At Oxford , a new observatory in the Parks, where his chief work was accomplished, especially in stellar photometry, erected through his initiative - invented the wedge photometer to obviate discordance in estimates of the brightness of various stars.

The following are noted from Memoirs of Rev. William Goodell D. Prime D. Of all the Churches only one Greek and one Latin, with the new English chapel then in building, escaped the general conflagration. Oct 5 Constantinople and the vicinity were visited with one of the most remarkable hail storms of which we have any authentic record, the hail falling in masses of ice.

It seemed as if some person was at intervals throwing brickbats or having stones into it from the roofs of houses. Observing, however the same appearance at a distance from the shore, I concluded for a moment it must be large fish jumping out of the water. But immediately the storm rushed on with awful fury; the stones fell, indeed, thick as hail, almost every frame of glass that was exposed was broken; the tilings of the houses were cut to pieces and water come down in streams into our chambers, while the whole suface of the Bosphorus was splashed up into the air in a manner it is impossible to describe All must dismount and walk and this too whether the palace was occupied or not.

Even in passing the palace on the Bosphorus in a boat, parties were rigidly required to lower their umbrellas, no matter how furiously the sun or rain might be beating upon them Green was claimed as sacred to the descendants of Mohammed and a Frank lady would at any time be liable to be stoned if she were seen in the street wearing a green veil, or any other article of dress of this colour. Their chief rabbis had led them to expect that according to their book, the Messiah must absolutely appear some time during the present year.

This translation has been and will long continue to be the lamp of life to the millions of the Armenian Nation. Dr Bennett the chaplain died 26 April He enjoyed the intimate friendship and confidence of Lord Stratford de Redcliffe, who left in Charles Hanson in the Chair signed amongst others by C. Ede etc. Appreciation of the Rev Cyrus Hamlin D. Its vast white stone hall and fountain, with windows almost darkened with shady plants and flowers, look deliciously cool and pleasant to passers-by. From the formal part of the garden you soon wander into a wildly beautiful shrubbery which reaches up to the hill of Therapia.

This is really a lovely spot and what is rare in this country, the deep shade preserves the ferns and wild flowers in freshest beauty. We walked with delight through a fine avenue of trees One of these fine avenues extends half way up the hills, another crossing it and forming a charming forest picture We came suddely to a little valley enclosed with a low mud wall. Round it were arranged in rows, about a hundred graves, each of which contains the bodies of many men, who have died of wounds in the hospital, or been brought down from the Crimea.

Finally the old Palace grounds were given to the German Government for its Embassy. Belin Headmaster. Ede of Constantinople. Chapman was for years chairman of the Royal Lifeboat Institution. My father had a house in the Grande Rue de Pera from which we had a splendid view over Topkhane, the harbour, Scutari.

Major E. Gordon R. Nominally occupying this official post, he rendered assistance in other ways notably at the Ministry of Public Works, Railways etc. The first cricket ground was at Balta Limani, between Roumeli Hissar and Emirghan and was owned by the same Nouri Pasha, son in law of Sultan Abdul Medjid, who afterwards met with such a disastrous end. Later on several clubs were formed. When the officiers of the Mediterrenean Fleet came up with the Admiral on his annual official visit to the Sultan, the match was a more representative one.

He kept our tent, water and being soon after the Crimean War, several officers who remained on sometime and others came down from Therapia to play and to look on.

This did not continue long for we arranged to play in the inner valley of the Sweet Waters of Asia. This spoilt the pitch and ground and delayed our playing. We got over this by buying the requisite extent of the grass or by agreeing to its being cut in good time for green feed. After some years Candilli was strong enough to form its own club, Candilli C.

When Edward Ede and Nathaniel Ede were living at the Old Yali, the latter took part as a violinist in a weekly musical string quartet at Rev. On the first occassion the evening was wintry, boisterous and stormy. It was no slight matter to get a boatman to face it, and Dr. Schauffler and his party as it turned out, never expected him to turn up, but Nat Ede not wishing his absence should ever be put down to weather, wind or tide insisted on going and so we managed to get a caikji [ boatman ] to take us over.

Dr Schauffler was a German by birth and a thorough musician, he played the flute and made up a quintet now and then. He also began learning to play the violoncello when he may have been near When at the Yali, the Edes and my brother Charles laid down some oysters near by, for some time with no result. Eventually and oyster bed was found at the other side of the bay, beyond the mosque at Yenikeuy, evidently owing to the current. His Yali was close to Yenikeuy Scala, as it was, and there was a grand dwelling there and many of the English and European ladies went to the festivities.

As it was either incumbent or politic [? He used to speak out freely to them. He gave Edward Ede a beautiful skiff [ small light boat ], 2 pairs of skulls, built by Searle, which I bought afterwards from him. To Nat Ede he gave a long racing boat, 4 oared, in which with N. He was loath to do so. When he did the Prince told him that if only he had known it a day sooner he would gladly have given him charge of the same.

As it was he had settled with someone else, a Mr Haselden, I think who came to Constantinople to negotiate this business, joined later by Mr Henry Oppenheim. The Pasha died rather suddenly soon afterwards. Rafts for fireworks at many points on the Bosphorus. Diplomatic Corps, Bankers, Merchants, the poor Turks and Christians; the bill for these and the dresses, presents to was a big one.

Indeed it ended in a loan to clear off the indebtedness, including the enormous enrichment of those entrusted with the expenditure. The consequence was that the lady in question was very angry, the more so that she had been bidden to marry one not of her choice and not at all to her liking. Hissar, Candilli, Ortakeuy, Tophane [?

There may be something auspicious, however, in the time and place of her birth, November 26, , at Gorham, a village not far from Portland, Maine. New England was at that time the educational and industrial center of the Union. Many literary men of the age lived and wrote in New England. Some of these took a leading part in the reform movements that had their beginning in the early middle of the century. The establishment of democracy had brought with it the idea of other reforms.

Child labor was abolished, temperance societies were formed, and missionaries were sent to foreign lands and to the Indians of America. Public education, coeducation, colleges, schools for the deaf and for the blind, were established. Universal education, universal suffrage, and the influence of daily newspapers helped to accomplish other reformations. In William Lloyd Garrison started the Liberator, a paper dedicated to abolition, which openly voiced the movement which resulted in the emancipation of the Negro slave.

Bacon says: From the year an honest Vermont farmer named William Miller had been urging upon the public, in pamphlets and lectures, his views of the approaching advent of Christ to judgment and the destruction of the world. He had figured it out on the basis of prophecies in Daniel and the Revelation, and the great event was set down for April 23, As the date drew near, the excitement of many became intense. Great meetings were held, in the open air or in tents, of those who wished to be found waiting for the Lord. Though she says of herself that she was converted at the age of eleven, her earnest Christian experience had really begun much earlier than that.

She must have understood what prayer means, for she tells of praying 1 Ellen G. White, Life Sketches, p. She says of the experience: At the age of nine years, an accident happened to me which was to affect my whole life. I was stunned by the blow, and fell senseless to the ground. A kind stranger offered to take me home in his carriage, but I, not realizing my weakness, told him that I preferred to walk. Those present were not aware that my injury was so serious, and allowed me to go; but after walking only a few rods, I grew faint and dizzy.

My twin sister and my schoolmate carried me home. I have no recollection of anything further for some time after the accident. My mother said that I noticed nothing, but lay in a stupor for three weeks. No one but herself thought it possible for me to recover, but for some reason she felt that I would live.

When I again aroused to consciousness, it seemed to me that I had been asleep. I did not remember the accident, and was ignorant of the cause of my illness. A great cradle had been made for me, and in it I lay for many weeks. I was reduced almost to a skeleton. At this time I began to pray the Lord to prepare me for death. When Christian friends visited the family, they would ask my mother if she had talked with me about dying. I overheard this, and it roused me. I desired to become a Christian, and prayed earnestly for the forgiveness of my sins.

I felt a peace of mind resulting, and loved everyone, feeling desirous that all should have their sins forgiven, and love Jesus as I did. Early Piety, or Memoirs of Children, p. She took the paper home and read it. It made such a deep impression upon her mind that she scarcely slept for several nights, praying continually. Her spiritual struggle was accompanied and intensified by her physical struggle. Her strength returned very slowly. When she had sufficiently recovered to return to play with her friends she became aware of a difference in their attitude toward her, which she realized was provoked by the presence of an ugly scar left on her face.

Her scar became a burden, and the years ahead of her seemed dark and hard. Sympathy and pity made the trial the greater to bear, and she sought consolation in being alone. Her hardest struggle was to give up her studies. Though she had been a normal, happy, intelligent girl, she now found it a physical impossibility to continue her education. Of her health at this time she says: My health seemed to be hopelessly impaired. For two years I could not breathe through my nose, and was able to attend school but little. My nervous system was prostrated, and my hand trembled so that I made but little progress in writing, and could get no farther than the simple copies in coarse hand.

I had a bad cough, and my whole system seemed debilitated. Ellen was still desiring to be a Christian and wondering how to obtain the forgiveness of her sins when, in , William Miller came to Portland and gave a series of lectures on the second coming of Christ. Ellen attended these meetings, and with others went forward for prayers. This brought little consolation, for it seemed to her too great a thing for God to forgive her, and that she was not good enough to enter heaven.

A sermon she heard there gave her the key to her troubles. Though it seemed too great a thing for her to ask it, she believed that God had blessed her and pardoned her sins. This belief gave her a different attitude toward life, of which she says: 3 Ellen described her disfigurement as being a broken nose, making it difficult to breathe.

  5. I asked for a looking-glass, and as I looked into it, I was shocked at the change in my appearance. Every feature of my face seemed changed. The sight was more than I could bear. The bone of my nose proved to be broken. The idea of carrying my misfortune through life was insupportable. I could see no pleasure in my life. I did not wish to live, and I dared not die, for I was not prepared. It was a long time before I gained much strength.

    Physicians thought that a silver wire could be put in my nose to hold it in shape, but said that it would be of little use; that I had lost so much blood my recovery was doubtful; that if I should get better, I could not live long. White, Testimonies for the Church, vol. The affliction that had darkened my childhood seemed to have been dealt me in mercy, for my good, to turn my heart away from the world and its unsatisfying pleasures, and incline it toward the enduring attractions of heaven.

    Joy and peace struck the poetic chord of her soul, and she saw the trees and grass in a fresher green, the sky a deeper blue. She prayed with them individually, and in groups, and even in her dreams seemed to be laboring for their salvation. It is appropriate, therefore, that this summary be had along with a statement of purpose that urges acceptance of the whole, and with explanation of the present and immediate struggle, which most concerns the reader. So also are her later manuscripts and letters.

    We were suffering from congestion of the lungs, as the result of a severe cold, and feared the exercise of speaking would be injurious, but while addressing the people upon the trials and difficulties endured by the apostles in establishing the Christian Church, our weariness, and pain were forgotten, and the Spirit of the Lord rested upon us, and upon many of our hearers. Excess of caution is as sure to end in a fall as excess of confidence. The wisest err; the strongest grow weary. Excess of caution is often attended with as great danger as excess of confidence.

    A little longer, and He will wipe all tears from our eyes. It is quoted so as to display the paired rhythms. He who stilled the angry waves and walked the foam-capped billows, who made devils tremble and disease flee, who opened blind eyes and called forth the dead to life,— offers Himself upon the cross as a sacrifice, and this from love to thee. He, the Sin Bearer, endures the wrath of divine justice, and for thy sake becomes sin itself. Oh, shall I, shall you, see the King in His beauty? Every stroke is to be given here. And then if we are at last found without blemish, we shall see the King in His beauty and possess everlasting life.

Joy to the poor; for Christ had come to make them heirs of His kingdom. Joy to the rich; for He would teach them how to secure eternal riches.

    Joy to the ignorant; He would make them wise unto salvation. It was I who was a stranger. It was I who was sick. It was I who was in prison.

    Not just in the presidential race, but on the campuses what is happening The sources of confusion and chaos are left-wing fascists who want to impose their way of life on us, they want to impose their values on us. Remember, the first really big test case was Scott Walker as Governor of Wisconsin, who had a key moment when he had thousands of people in the capitol They had lost the election fair and square, for governor, for state reps, for the senate, and their reaction was to take it to the streets and try to browbeat the governor.

    I think if you see Trump win or Cruz win, if either one goes to Washington and brings real reform, you're going to see these kinds of militants go out and do everything they can in the streets to try to stop what they're losing at the ballot box.
