TO THE SUBSCRIBERS OF "CURRENT EVENTS":

I take pleasure in announcing that I have purchased the entire
subscription list and good will of _Current Events_, and offer you in its
stead THE GREAT ROUND WORLD, a weekly newspaper for boys and
girls.

You will receive one number of THE GREAT ROUND WORLD for each
number of _Current Events_ due you on your subscription. I make the
special offer, to send you THE GREAT ROUND WORLD every week until
December 31st, 1897, if you will remit the sum of $1.25 at once.

My regular subscription price is $2.50.

If there is any special feature or department of _Current Events_ which
the majority of the subscribers would like to have continued, I will take
great pleasure in arranging for it, and I trust that you may find THE
GREAT ROUND WORLD a satisfactory substitute for _Current Events_.

WILLIAM BEVERLEY HARISON.

There does not seem to be any prospect of a settlement of the Turkish
troubles.

The various European powers have called the Sultan to account for the
massacres in Armenia, and laid out a system of reforms, which they think
should be made.

But this is as far as they have got.

"You may lead a horse to the water, but you cannot make him drink." The
various powers of Europe are learning that this is a very true saying.

They have decided upon the reforms that Turkey ought to make, but they are
as puzzled as they can be to know how they are going to make the Sultan
order these reforms.

Germany, France, Italy, Austria, England, and Russia have been discussing
the matter for weeks.

They have been saying among themselves, "What on earth are we going to do
if Turkey flatly refuses to make any reforms at all?"

This is the European conundrum.

The consequence is, that the full list of reforms has not yet been given
to the Sultan.
