Life and Light for Woman, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from Life and Light for Woman, Vol. 5: January, 1875 The earthquakes still continue- and they cannot decide whether to build or not. At Shuhagi, where we spent the night, they were in much fear on account of the repeated shocks- and the next day, at noon, we were again distressed by the sight of the ruins of Sarakamish. Passing beyond these towns, we came to the very heart of Koordistan, one of the wonders of which to our Western eyes, so used to the modern in life, was the desolate city of Farkin, not destroyed by an earthquake, but by slow-wearing time. We have all read and wondered over the description of European ruins, - cathedrals and palaces- but I think that even those who have feasted their eyes on these rare antiquities would call Farkin a gem in its way. The wide walls are broken down, and overgrown with foliage- and in the midst of a numerous population of Koords and Armenians rise the most picturesque and lofty ruins of two ancient Christian churches, a mosque, and a palace- while a population of hundreds of storks, far more bustling and noisy than the men, occupy every lofty tower, or peak on the jagged walls. The remains of the palace are very extensive- and near by is a kiosk, or summer-house, still in very good preservation. The most perfect of the buildings is the Martyr Church, said to have been built by Maruther. As we looked back on the city, after passing out, a fine picture was spread out before us, - lofty towers and walls set down in the midst of green gardens, and the storks in their airy nests keeping guard over all. The Turks say that these birds will not live on the dwellings of Christians. It is far more common to see them on some high minaret- yet they are also found in villages where there are no Turks. We reached Bitlis on Saturday. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
