The reason that Italy's food supply

It must always puzzle a landlubber

It is announced that the endewment
fund of a New York city parish, known
far and wide for its good works, has
gone beyond the one-hundred-thous
and-dollar mark. That noble provis
ion for Christian helpfulness began in
striking way. Twelve shop girls
gave a gold dollar each, and on that
suggestive basis rests the superstruct
ure which is to endure through the
generations. They did what they
could, as did the woman in the Gospels.
The nation of fhdians that beet rep
resented the warring element of the
race of red men has made a significant
appeal to the government. The rem
nant of the Sioux has asked permis
aion to erect a monument to the braves
slain in the battle of Wounded Knee
In South Dakota seven years ago, and
to inscribe thereon, in the Sioux lan
guage. "words that shall proclaim
Wounded Knee the last battle-field on
which the Indian shall show hostility
to his white brother."
The riots in India threaten to take
on the character of an insurrection.
The agitators are endeavoring to In
flame the native population by repre
senting that the sanitary measures
taken by the British goverrment to
prevent the spreading of the plague
are in effect desecration of Indian
temples and a trampling upon tradi
tions. The people of India have un
doubtedly many causes for complaint
againt the British, but the vigor or
thoroughness of measures to stop the
spread of contagious diseases cannot
be put in that catalogue. There al
ways has been opposition to drastic
sanitary measures among Asiatic peo
ple, and every famine in India, every
year of cholera or plague, has been
followed by irritation and resentment
on the part of the ignorant and preju
diced natives.
Spain, so long mistress of the seas,
and the pioneer of national advancs
ment, has become degenerate and a
fast waning power. Its industries are
suffering from lassitude of the most
pronounced order, and threaten to be
swamped in the serious C3mpetition to
which they were subjected by more
energetic cauntries. Spanish agricul
ture is not excepted from this general
decline. Up to the present day noth
iug in the shape of farming machinery
has been introduced, all farm work be
ing still carried on by manual labor.
Such a state of affairs could only re
sult, as it has done, in a sort of na
tional bankruptcy. But the example
and contact with other nations and
people has led to a sort of revival of
the ancient spirit of rivalry which
dominated the Spanish race some hun
dreds of years ago. The revival is as
yet but in spirit, which, although near
ly crushed with the weight of impover
ishment. now seems to aspire to better
things. The agricultural condition of
the country has indeed become so de
pressed that the government has had
to look the matter seriously in the face.
In the estimate of 1896-7 the sum of
£240.000 has teen voted for the relief
of the agricultural industry, and for
immediate use. The form in which it
5s to be given is to grant temporary
freedom from succession duties, anil
on the transfer of property. All cat
tle, implements, plants, seeds, etc.,
imported from other countries, for the
improvement of agriculture, are to
come in duty free. "Cheap money for
farmers" is to be provided for, by eri.
couraging and promoting facilities to
companies for obtaining loans for agri
cultural purposes, presumably on a
combined or co-operative mortgage on
the farms of the members. As most
of the farms are already mortgaged,
the government will accept a second
mortgage to meet the case. The Span
