TUB famine In Bengal shows a fearful
front. Over two hundred thousand per
sons have been set to work by the covern-
meat upon relief works. Many thou
sands of pounds have been subscribed by
the wealthy citizens of the large towns in
India and also in Bn gland. But in splto
of munificent aid and woll-directed ef
forts, many people will sutler tho pangs
of hunger and many die of starvation in
India, It now appears certain that tho
present famine will be far nioro disss
troas than that of 1866 in Oriiia, when,
despite the most strenuous efforts to suc
cor tho starving, the Bengali proverb,
"It is watering the top of a troo whose
roots are cut," was fearfully fulfilled.
The loss from this visitation is not, so far
as we know, numerically given; but it
would doubtless corns near to that of the
Bengal famine of 1772, from
which Warron Hastings stated
the loss by starvation to bo
oae-thlrd of tho population amounting
to about ten million b. In tho famlno of
1887, in the northwest provinces, tho pop
ulation affected was about eight millions,
aad during its violsnco there woro twelve
hundred deaths a day in two of the princi
pal towns, "When we remombor that
pestilence in many forms over follows

gala some faint idea of tho magnitude ol
the calamity that now stalks over liengal,
and already more than decimates its hun

to predict how long tho famine
