Kouroyen, an American Red Cross nurse, performed a life-or-death operation here as the result of which and her other errands of mercy she has come to be known as "the Amer ican angel" by the homeless and starv ing Greek refugees. Born of Greek parents, Miss Kou royen is a graduate nurse of the Mas sachusetts GeneraKhospital in Boston. Because of her Jmowledge of Greek the American Red Cross sent her -fo Macedonia, where typhus, smallpox and cholera tread on each other's heels, and where the refugees bury their dead beneath the dirt floors of their shell-shattered shacks' so that the bread cards of the dead member of their family shall not be taken up. A Greek soldfer, one of whose legs had been crushed, was brought to the box car on a railroad siding, in which Miss Kouroyen-was living. Something had to be done for him at once. Miss Kouroyen spent no time Jn talking. Borrowing a. razor from Lieut. Abner J. Cobb of Deliver, Colo., an American Red Cross field worker, who was shav ing by candle light in the box car, Miss Kouroyen anesthetized hen pa tient with her small supply of ether and chloroform, and performed an am putation, using cotton thread to "tie off" the arteries and veins. Despite the prophecy of a local doc tor that the aged patient would not live through the night Miss Kouroyen some time later received a visit from hef patient. He had an American artificial limb made for him in the American Red Cross artificial leg fac tory for Greek war mutiles in Athens. TRYON tain farm in this much enthused ov vicinity, is very er the prospects of the railroad. Amen. 1 Who wouldn't be ? COLUMBUS BAPTIST CHURCH.

There are still thousands of horse-drawn cabs operating in Rome while there is not a single taxlcab. Two reasons are given for this equine superiority. First, there are 3,000 cab drivers in Rome, according to the mu nicipal statistics. These exercise a con siderable influence in the municipal elections of Rome, and as a conse quence no motor vehicle concessions are granted.
