Mauvhvii.i.k, Kan.. Jan. 15. Mrs.
Joseph Hlldcbrandt. wife of a farmer
living six miles south of this city, ad
ministered poison to her eight children
yesterday forenoon, and then honcd
herself to a rafter. Seven of the chil
dren aro dead, and tho other is not ex
pected to live. They range from two
to It years of age. The cause of tho
tragedy was undoubtedly poverty. Mr.
Hildebrnndt is a sufferer from cancer,
and is now under treatment in a Kan
sas City hospital. Mrs. Hildobrandt, it
is supposed, became despondent, and
possibly insane, because of her hus
band's illness, and her inability to pro
vide for tho family.
Tho poison which caused the death
of tho children was administered with
the morning meal. Shortly after they
had finished breakfast all of the chil
dren wcro taken ill nnd in a short timo
four of them were dead. The mother
refused to go after medical attendance,
and did not arouso tho neighbors.
Finally one of tho neighbors oamo in
and, bceiug tho situation, went after
help. When he returned ho found
threo more of tho children dead and
the mother missing.
A search was at onco made, which
resulted in finding Mrs. Hildobrandt
in the barn, whore she was suspended
by a ropo around her neck. Death
had como to her Bomo timo before her
discovery. She took a dose of poison
at tho same timo that sho iravc it to

Ofllclnl Stntflincnt front tlio National Itcltof
New Yokk, Jan. 15. Tho following
oflieial statement has been issued from
tho headquarters of the National Ar
menian relief committee:
The reported Intention of the Turkish kov
ernment to refuse tho American anil Kcd Cross
society permission to enter Turkey, will not
cause tho National Armenian relict commit
tee and its brunches throughout tho country
to relax their cHorts for un instant in raising
funds to save the 3iO,OJ3 Armenians who are
perishing from starvation nnd ex
posure. The national committee is the
authorized ;if,ent throughout tho coun
try for raising funds nnd supplies to be
distributed by tho Kcd Cross, provided It enter
tho Held, but In case the Kcd Cross Is excluded,
thu national commtttco bus authority to exer
cise existing agencies on the ground to organ
ize new ones, so that all contributors muy be
assured that their gifts will as speedily ns pos
sible reach tho sufferers for whom they aro In
tended. Many are not nwnrc of tho fact that relief
work to the extent of not less than $100,000 has
already been carried out In Turkey during tho
past three months, under tho direction
of u strong and representative commit
tee of foreign residents and diplomats in
Constantinople, the Kuropcan consuls and
tho Americans who nro found to bo In all
tho principal cities of tho Interior. A letter
Just received from Constantinople date ' Do
comber '27, states that 6 1 bales of clothli had
been forwarded to Ccsnrcu, and that It Is now
possible to forward largo amounts of money tc
those ong.igcd in this work In tho dovustated
regions. The Kod Cross cjuld greatly enlarge
It seems incredible that while tho Turkish
government Is permitting such relief work It
should excludo the Kod Cross, which. ns Is well
known, will not step over a suffering Turk or
Kurd to help an Armenian. Mennwhlln all
funds should continue to bo sent to Mcs-rs.

Tho only oflicer of either body to ap

of tho house, who came

CnicAfio. Jan. 15. Mrs. S. E. Gross,
a member of tho lied Cross society,
said: "Tho Turkish government has a
treaty with the Bed Cross which will

It was most remarkable to sco what
a regulated system of tho inhabitants
of Possession had arranged. From tho
bench a broad main track led straight
into tho mlddlo of tho island, nnd from
this secondary roads wont out to nil
parts, tho wholo forming a network of
roads apparently ruled by a most civ- '
illzcd department. With beak and feet
tho penguins had carefully put away .
most of tho pobblcs and stones from
their footpaths, and whore snow cov- ,
crcd tho grounds tho roads had by
constant uso become so smooth nnd 1
so neat that Macadam In all his glory
would havo acknowledged himself
beaten. Tho most curious thing of all
was tho way In which tho penguins
seemed to maintain order in those
paths. Currents of penguins were con
tinually moving from towards tho
bench. While tho fat new arrivals al
ways kept to tho right, tho thin pen
guins, which wore moving off to tho
continent, always kept to tho left; and
I never bivw any fighting among them.
