Sci-nua of O.rlef and Borrow.
Grouped together in little knolls
tweeu the bmken levees, throui;h which
the water ruslied with ungovernable
fury, were scores of people whites and
blacks some with haiiies in thrift .rnis,
while others had dos secured by cords.
Many of tln-m had nothing else in the
world except the clothes they wore on
their backs. Whenever the Dacotali ilis
covered a scone like this, a static was
wuiiKuut and the stricken wore taken
aboaril. Kiptallv as sad a scene was lhi
poor dumb cattle standing in il)o wati r
actually starvim;. Many of tliem had

A family named Luke, residing several
miles alsjve Hayou Sara, has jut U'en

the family. Monday they were prosper
ous, heintr owners of a law plantalion,
a well eiid;iH'd slore, and one hundred
head of stuck. Now nolliiiitf remains
above water but the eaves of their bouses.
A crevasse, sixty foot wide, broke directly
in front of their house at noon, and the
family bad a lively lime to reach the
levee ln-fore six feet of water covered
the place. The crevasse is now four liun
drni fii-t wide. There are hundreds of

1 ahor Conrsn-nco.
Lospon, April i . Although the Rus
sian government, for various reasons,
chielly U'caese of the peculiar social and
economic condition ol tho country, took
no part in the labor conference recently
held in ltcrlui, it is plain tiiat some lit
least of tiie questions there discussed
have found coiisiderat.on iu the council
of the northern empire.
The uctioit of the imperial council in
passing bill prohibiting the employ
ment in fni.lor.es and workshop of
children under twelve vears of a-io, is a
concession to popular demand, nud the
dictates ol' htiuiuuity tua; is most sur
prising to iliose lumiliar with the Hus
siau abhorrence ul" innovat'ous, especi
ally of a com iliatory ciiaru tor, or of a
nature caloulatud to hutca the burdens
of tile people.
It the bill wns passed with a view of
conferring a measure of protection upon
the youth of thu lo.v r cl :se wliich the
cwiincil sine r. Iv lielieved they stood in
need of and were entitle i to as ail act of
i'ustio?, the imperial body h.i not gone
ar enough. If, on liiu otiior hand, tho
council intended by its act to appease
the clamorous agitator and calm tho pre
vailing rovolu! innarv spirit, it has gone
too tar, for tin- loyalty ol even a li'iissmtl
is not to be purc iiised at a price so in
sultingly insigu.li 'am.
