THE INDIAN FAMINE
Dr. Klopscb Reports the Condition
The following has been received by
the famine fund committee ia New
Bombay, May 28, 1900.
Dr, Klopech has just completed hi-
tour of the Famine Districts in Bombay
presidency, including the native fe'a e
of Gujarat and Baroda. Everywhere
he was confronted with bbocking and
revoltinjr scenes. He foird the f imlna
camps stampeded by cholera and smull
pox fugitives who had come from dis
tant po?ote of ioleution and are now
scattering these diseases in all direc
tions. Many are dying in the fields
and ditches and along1 the roadside.
At Godbra, about 300 mil63 north
of Bombay, in Gjjarat district,
there wert 3,000 deaths from cholera
in four days.
At Danad, eome fifty miles east of
Godhra, he found a similar frigbtfu
condition of affairs, there having been
2,500 deaths from oholera. In the
hospitals the death-rate as reported
by the physicians was ninety per cent
At Barada, some seventy miles south
of Godhra, he found in the poorhouse
1,200 natives who bad been rescued
from famine. The place was dread
fully filthy and showed a total lack of
At Abmedabad, about eighty miles
west of Godhra, he found th) water
supply vitiated and a proliflo cause e'

daily. The thermometer at Ahmedab-
ad marked 115 degrees in the shade.
Be next visited the small-pox and
eholara wards of Viramgan. All the
patients were lying on the ground,
there being no cots for their accom
Dr. Klopsch declares the stories of
human bodies being devoured by
vultures, dogs and jackals absolutely
Is is evident, Dr. Klopsch adds,
that the India government is doing" its
best to fight back the ravages of
famine and disease. The native of
ficials, however, are heartlessly indif
ferent, and the condition of a large
part of India is, as a whole, the worst
that has been known at any time
during the century. The distress to
be seen on every side is heartrending,
but It is to be feared tiat the worst is
yet to oome. This will be reached
when the monsoon breaks and the
torrential rains flood the relief camps
and a large part of the famine area,
spreading disease, and especially
Dr. Klopsch has purchased a thou
sand hand plows,, which will be given
thoeecatlveazriculturista who have loct
their oxen. He i-i now arranging for
tho purchase ol 100,000 b aatrets to be
distributed before the rainy season
sets in. He has 'protested to tha au
thorities againtt the employment of
nursing mothers, sick women and deli
cate children on the relief work, such
employment being in violation of the
famine code. In this oonDectlon he
has received an appreciative letter from
Lord Northcote, governor of Bombay,
premising an immediate investigation.
It is quite clear, however, that all
that has been done will count for little
unless In the crisis more help is gener

ON THE ELEVATOR.
Some Funny Thinics Heard by a.
Wide Awoke Man.
"A funny thing about this business,"
said a man who runs the elevator in a
bis office building, "is the way people
will sometimes call out whatever hap
pens to be on their minds instead of the
number of the floor at which they want
to stop. Just a few moments ago a
very good looking lady got in the car,
and when we were about half way up
she called out suddenly:
" 'Two back teeth!'
" 'What!' said I, a little startled.
" 'I mean five,' she answered, turning
red. Then she saw that made It worse
than ever, and she turned red some
" 'I mean please stop at tho fifth
floor,' she managed to say very low
when we were nearly to the top. You
see, she was on her way to the dentist's
maybe to have two back teeth snatch
ed out. anil I suppose slie couldn't
think of anything else.
"The other day a fat, fussy old man
rushed in with a bundle of papers in
his hand. When we got near the fourth
floor, he blurted out:
" 'He's a rascal!'
" 'Very likely,' said I and kept on go
"'Hi, there! he yelled. "Why don't
you stop where I told you?'
" 'How did I kuow which floor you
meant?' said I. 'What you remarked
fits the tenants on several floors.
'It turned out that he wanted to see
his lawyer. I don't know whether he
was thinking about him or somebody
he was in litigation with." New Or

put over $14,000 into grading and improvements and

Curiosity one evening prompted me to
enter a famous gambling palace of the
German town at which I was stopping.
The scene caunot be easily imagined or
Seated at a table by themselves, the
center of a group of intent spectators,
were two men. A pile of gold lay be
tween them, and the cards had just bocn
dealt. One had his back toward me, but.
without seeing his face, it was easy to
divine the agitation which caused his
hand to tremble as he laid it upon the
cards, which he seemed almost afraid to
The features of his antagonist were
composed and might have been called
handsome but for a sinister expression
which marred their effect.
The nervous player played and lust,
and, dashing his cards in his opponent's
face, as though implying he had been
cheated, a scene ensued.
A crowd pothered about, concealing
from my view what followed, and in the
confusion which ensued I left the place.
Next moruiug the circumstance had
passed from my mind, and I was taking
my accustomed early walk over an un
frequented path in the neighborhood
when the sound of a couple of shots in
quick succession broke the stillness, and
almost immediately two men emerged
from a clump of trees near by, in one of
whom I recognized the successful gam
bler of the evening before. The pair
walked rapidly away, and, turning in the
direction whence I had heard the shots,
I caught a glimpse through the trees of
some one kneeling over an object lying
I had not till now caught sight of the
wounded man's face, on which the pallor
of death was fast settling.
"Great heaven!" I exclaimed, starting
back in horror.
It w as my old friend, Paul Preston,
who lay dead or dying before me. We
had been separated for some years, but
we had long been friends and had loved
each other like brothers.
In vain I spoke his name and endeavor
ed to rouse his attention. Xo human
skill could recall the vital spark. It had
It was more than a year after my
friend's death that I first met his sister
Laura. Her sweet, gentle face won me
from the first. She had often heard her
brother speak of me and knew what
friends we had been. This was the be
ginning tie between us, which, uncon
sciously to both, grew closer by degrees,
till nt length I ventured to declare my
I had reason to think her not altogether
unprepared for this avowal and had not
expected it to give her any pain. But
judge of my surprise to see her burst into
tears. Kor a time sobs choked her ut
"Alas, you know not what you ask,"
she said. "I am not at my own disposal."
Then she went on to tell that, by her
father's will, of which Mr. Bradden, her
guardian, was executor, she was not to
marry without the latter's consent un
der pain of forfeiting all share in her fa
ther's estate; that it had been a cherish
ed scheme of her father and his friend
that she should one day become the wife
of George Kradden, her guardian's son,
to whom she had allowed herself to be
engaged, accordingly, out of deference to
her deceased father's wishes, and Mr.
Bradden was disposed to hold her firmiy
to her promise. Young Bradden had re
turned from abroad within the last few
days, and his father was already press
ing for a speedy consummation of the
"But do you love this man?" I asked.
"It is a "cruel question you put," she
answered, as her tears broke out afresh.
"Our union was my poor father's wish,
and 1 must respect my promise."
"Could you be honorably released from
it," I said, "might I be free to renew my
"Oh. Mr. Vernon," she exclaimed with
fervor, "but liberate me from this hated
bond and there is nothing I would not do
to thank you!"
I pressed her hand and took my leave.
My plan was to go at once to Mr. Brad
den and lay before him the iniquity of
forcing a helpless girl's inclinations and
the unenviable light he would stand in if
he did this, taking advantage of his au
thority to secure an advantageous match
for one of his own family.
' Mr. Bradden received me coldly, but
"I appreciate your disinterestedness,"
he said in a sneering tone when I had
finished what I had to say, "but Miss
Preston is already under a solemn en
gagement, and if she contracts another
without my consent, which is not likely
to be given, she forfeits her entire for
tune. Perhaps this last information may
serve to diminish your ardor."
My blood tingled at this insinuation,
but I had come to serve Laura and de
termined to keep my temper.
"But if Miss Preston is averse to a
marriage with your son, do you think it
quite honorable to compel her to it?" 1
"My son," was the haughty reply, "ia
scarcely likely to encounter any lady's
aversion. But here he comes; yon may
judge of him for yourself."
The door opened and a young man en
tered. Judge of my amazement at find
ing myself face to face with the slayer
of Paul Preston.
"Is that man your son?" I asked sternly-
"He is," answered Mr. Bradden stiffly.
'"He is Paul Preston's murderer!" I ex
claimed. "And the sister of his victim
will hardly feel bound to bestow her hand
in return for one red with her brother's
George Bradden stood aghast. Before
the duel he and Paul Preston had not
met since their early boyhood, and it
was only now that he learned in whose
blood he had imbrued his hands. He fled
from the country, and I soon had the
pleasure of bearing te Laura her release,.
with full permission J marry whom she
pleased. New York News.

may be determined with a minimum of
complication. In Spain accounts are
reckoned in reals vellon, worth ' within
Spain 5 cents of our money each, but
having no existence as a circulating me
dium. In Portugal calculations are by
rcls and milreis, but neither appears as
coin. A bill for 10.250 reis would be
stated as 10 milreis 250 reis. The Gibral
tar real is a purely imaginary coin used
only for accounting and worth in theory
about 1.12, while a quarto, reckoned in
bills one-sixteenth of a Gibraltar real, is
also without circulation.
