VICTIM OF TURKS' RAPACITY Dead City of Farmagusta, on Island of Cyprus, a Monument to Their Savagery and Hate. Farmagusta, "the place of the goddess," god-dess," is in a desolate corner of the far-famed island of Cyprus. One look at the wrecked city shows plainly that the goddess has forsaken her altars. It looks as though a sandstorm had struck the place and buried its glory beneath a dune, from which rise the remains of churches, towers and a cathedral. It was not, however, the sands of the tropics that laid the ancient metropolis me-tropolis low. The Turks, wrathful at this city of 300 churches, attacked it in a siege which might have rivaled the lengthy Trojan episode had not nun-! nun-! ger overcome the city's defenders. Tho ' pillaging of the conquerors completed : the ruin wrought by battering rams, fire and stones. Earthquakes followed and settled the shattered stones further into thu sand. But through the city's days ol destruction, even today, the outer walls, and bastions stand firm. The harbor stronghold of Farmagusta would be a formidable obstacle to attack even in this day of 50-mile guns and scientific artillery fire. In one corner of the wall stands o tower said to have been the scene ol Pesdemona's death at the . hands ol Othello. v Aside from the strong walls there are few bits of intact architecture among the debris. An occasional palm tree growing up through the ruins adds to the -effect of abandonment. A fevt Turks hold the city gainst time, the only enemy left to it.
