MISS EMM A ANDERSON of Middlesex twp., gives a vivid description of the the. starving people of India, in her let ter from that country, and she asks for contributions of money, which can be sent to 11s or any person agreed upon, and which will be forwarded to her by draft on the Bank of England. People who have money to spare for charity will perhaps find no more pro per objects on Earth than exist today in the central provinces of India; but at the same time it seems strange to Americans that the people of England, who secured the gold and silver which made them the commercial masters of the world by robbing these same people should now allow them to starve. HARRISBURG. The Governor has signed the bill re quiring a Smull's band book to be plac ed in each public school. Bakeries are to be regulated by a bill which passed last week. It provides that no bake shop shall be compelled to work more than 00 hours a week, and prohibits working on Sunday, except setting the "sponge;" also, that no per son having consumption or a contagi-. ous disease shall be employed in such establishments. A good deal of interest is manifested all over Pennsylvania in the proposed increase in the appropriation for Far mers' Institutes. The sum appropriat ed by the former Legislature for this purpose was only $5,000 for two years. It is now proposed to make the appro priation for the next two years $12,000 and if the farmers show a united front in the matter, they will get what they ask. A law for a new inheritance tax has been placed on the statute-book of this State. It provides for the taxation of all direct inheritances of personal prop erty exceeding $5,000 at the rate of 2 per cent. The law for the collection of a collateral inheritance tax of 5 per cent, remains unchanged. It applies to all property thus inherited, real, per sonal or mixed; but the new tax applies only to personal property exceeding $5,000 in value directly inherited. It is estimated that this new tax will furnish the State an annual revenue of from one million to two million dollars, and this will probably enable the the Treasurer to meet all reasonable demands. The bill supplementary to the pharma cy act of 1887, regulating the practice of pharmacy, passed the Legislature last week, and, if. signed, will exclude from the drug business every person not holding a certificate of competency from the State Board of Pharmacy. The bill will also make it impossi ble for any parties who have no certifi cate to own a drug store, even though they hire a certified manager. Another object is to keep the drug business out of the department stores, and to pre vent infringment on the rights of duly registered and qualified pharmacists. That expense bill for the pretended Lexowing of Philadelphia by the Sen ate committee is, in popular parlance, a dandy. For example, $34,000 is charg ed for procuring witnesses, and the stenographer asks a bagatelle of SIO,OOO, as much as a Pennsylvania farmer could save in ten years provided he didn't eat a bite. The bill at the Hotel Walton is is $5,912. A the rate of $5 per day this would keep a man nearly 1,200 days at this hotel, where it costs a man a cent for every breath he draws. And the in vestigators appear to have done nothing but keep their breaths strengthened and draw them regularly. The Lexow expense bill passed the Senate, Tuesday, by a vote of 28 to 11. Meredith voted for it. The House Tuesday began the night sessions, to be held Tuesdays. Wednes days and Thursdays during the balance of the session. A message from the Governor was read announcing his ap proval of the following bills: Repeal of the Greater Pittsburg bills; requiring Grand Juries to dispose of the cost- in criminal prosecutions for lar ceny where the value of the goods is less than $lO, and in the prosecutions for as sault or assault and battery where felo ny is charged and the prosecutor has no reasonable ground for making the charge; to allow the town council of a consolidated borough to appoint one street commissioner; for preservation of forests and partially relieving forest lands from taxation; punishing the send ing of anonymous communications of a libelous or scurrilous nature; to prevent the adulteration of drugs and medical preparations; to authorize boroughs to make appropriations to establish free public libraries; to provide for the main tenance of indigent insane in county and local institutions: authorizing the recording of all releases, contracts, let ters of attorney and other instruments of writing, which a married woman "is or shall be authorized by law to execute without the joinder of her husband; re lating to the prosecutions of licensed dealers and their employes on the charge of furnishing intoxicating liquor to minors. THE third rail electric railroad sys tem was tested recently on the New England tracks between Hartford and New Britain, and it is a success. The run of ten miles between New Britain and Hartford was made in liH minutes and with less jar than is ordinarily ex perienced in the steam passenger trains. Stretches of the route were covered much faster than a mile a minute, and the motor car was geared to 85 miles, It is said that the new system will largely supersede the locomotive WASHINGTON NOTES. Senators Quay and Penrose have re turned from their late fishing trip. On Tuesday the Senate began the con sideration of the new tariff bill. Aldrich lead off with a defense of the changes made by the Finance Committel of the Senate, told of the sugar schedule, of the increased tax on beer, the tax 011 tea, etc., and was answered by Vest. IT is stated that nearly 700 Spanish army officers have died of wounds or disease during the last year, including six generals and sixty-five officers above the rank of captain. The mortality in the rank and file in the same time is placed at over 25,000. These surprising figures are from Spanish official sources. BY the signing of the "Greater New York bill," by the governor of that Mtate last week the city of New York will after January Ist next, contain 3,- 400, (KM) inhabitants and will lie the second largest city in the world. By the act. the cities of New York, Brook lyn and the suburban towns adjoining are consolidated. THE adoption of Senator Morgan's resolution by the National Senate, hist Thursday, recognizing the Cuban patri ots as belligerents, indicates that the almost universal desire of the American tieople to stop the hellish atrocities which for two years have gone on in Cuba will presently be gratified. THE Secretary of the Treasury has sent a communication to the United States Senate, in reply to a resolution ' of inquiry, recommending that the tax ' 011 distilled spirits l>e reducpd to 9s> J cents a gallon. He says the present 1 rate has had the effect of greatly in creasing illicit distilling . Latest Legislative Scandal. Just as the proposal investigation of the insurance bill scandal is in danger of being abandoned, or taken behind closed doors at Harrisburg. a new scandal has broken out. This time it is in connection with the mischievous bill to prohibit municipalities from erecting or operating electric light plants without first purchasing the plants of incorporated companies which may have been chartered to sup ply light in such municipalities. The bill is monstrous in principle and it is not wholly surprising that the charge should be brought that it is backed by a big corruption fund. It is of the same class as the Woods water works bill of last session, but of much wider and more vicious applica tion. The fact that necessary public water supplies were, in some cases, furnished at considerable expense to towns temporarily without the civic spirit to supply themselves and that the valuable plants might be rendered worthless by the snbsequent creation ot municipal plants gave a color of excuse to the water works bill. But that ex cuse-never a good one —is wholly lack ingin connection with the light bill. Electric lighting plants are movable property, cannot be rendered worthless by municipal competition and should under no circumstances have a monopo ly franchise. The effect of the proposed bill would be to prohibit a municipality from es tablishing a plant to light its own buildings, unless it should first pur chase the plant and good will of a corporation engaged in the business of supplying light jointly to the city and private consumers. The proposition would be ridiculous if there were not serious threats of its enactment into law. Take the city of Pittsburg for example. Had this bill been enacted last sesson Director Brown would have been prohibited from letting a contract for the light plant for the new safety building, unless the city had first ar ranged to buy the extensive .plant and franchises of the Allegheny Lighting Company. Philadelphia could not es tablish a new plant to illuminate its palace on Broad street without buying out the dozen corporations in the un savory light combination of that city. Such a monstrous proposition would hardly make a legislative appearance without a "fund" behind it and cer tainly any member who would vote for it would fall under suspicion.—Pitts burg Dispatch. Who Holds the Tide. Not long since the Review announced on good authority that the Brady's Bend Iron Co's. property, situated in Clarion, Armstrong and "Butler counties com prising in all some 6,000 acres,' would be sold again soon. The correctness of that assertion can be proved by a peru sal of the Bth page of this issue, where this property is advertised at sheriff's sale for Saturday, June sth, at the court house at Kittanning. The East Brady lots are again included in the sale as will be seen by "lot No. 57." This means that half our town, beginning at the alley at J. M. Brown's and extend ing to Hardscrabble, is offered for sale by the sheriff, with the exception of a few lots named that were exempted. The people who hold the deeds to these lots haye had peaceable possession for over 21 years and are not unduly alarmed over the matter, as their titles are good and no bankrupt or corrupt organiza tion that has been practically dead for 25 years will be able to take it from them. It will rile some of our solid ctizens to find their handsome proper ties advertised by the sheriff, howeve.-, and we believe it is a spectacle that is not often witnessed of the half of a pros perous town of about 1,500 inhabitants being advertised for sale by the sheriff. The main feature of the sale is highly approved by every one, and it is the hope that some man, company or cor poration will be the purchaser that will develop the property—and the purchas er will have to do that to realize on the investment. It is rich in minerals of numerous kinds, the development of which would be of untold value to this place and vicinity. It has passed through many vicissitudes but now we have reason to think a change for the better is coming. We at least know that it cannot be any worse. —East Bra dy Review.

I To the citizens of my native county: I DEAR FRIEXDS;— No doubt many of j ! you have read something concerning i i the famine in India, but 1 want you to : j know something of the real condition of 4 things, and so through the kindness* of . ! the editor of your paper, I shall tell you . ! of a visit I made a very short time ago , I to one of the stricken districts of India. , At the meeting of our Ladies' Presby . terial Missionary Society, at Paual Purdi. March 10th, the Lord seemed to lay it upon our hearts to do something 5 very decided for the sufferers -especialy j F for the orphan children. Miss White j and 1 offered to go down country and see for ourselves the condition of things: j : so we were appointed by the society to do so. and were also to bring home some orphan children, if we found any in ' in need. - We had expected to go down as far as : Jabbalpore. but when we reached A 1 [ lahabad we learned that the Govern ment had forbidden orphans to betaken 1 away from the Central Provinces, and ' that cholera had also broken out down there, and that in the District of Fateh pur there was great want. So we turned about and came back <2 miles to --Petahpnr, but liefore leaving Allahabad we visited the different mis i sionaries. who had been caring for the hungry, and learned all we could how to proceed. . Rev. Clancy of the M. E. Mission had cared for about children, and had about 120 under his care when we call ed upon him. The others after having l>een fed by him for sometime had been sent to the" different missionary orphan ages. The eyes of this kind hearted mission ary filled with tears as he told us of the condition of the poor little children. He had begun without anv money, and the Lord had provided for all he had taken in, and he was going ahead gathering in all he could. The village people are the greatest sufferers. The famine has been caused by lack of rain; the fields that at other tunes brought abundant harvests of splendid wheat, are either lying waste or dried up for want of water, and the farmers have eaten all they had in store have either sold or butchered their cattle: given their land or whatever they had, and are now left without food or money. Many think that there is still plenty of wheat in India,but wheth er this is the case or not.the people who need it have no money to buy it. and thev are starving. The Government of India is doing much for the people, and it has been said that no one need die for there is enough for all, but we know that people are dying and that in many cases what has been provided by the Government fails to reach those for whom it was intended. To enable you to understand more clearly what I want you to take from this. I shall give you a few facts, as I got them from a mis sionary at Fatehpnr. This district has been declared a famine one, and stands third in distress of all the famine dis tricts —Jhansi and Bauda coming in be fore it. The missionary had visited about -Jo villages around about the city of Fateh pnr and found the condition of things terrible. In a village, say of 300 people, on careful inquiry he found that from 20 to 80 people had already died of ac tual starvation- Many do not hesitate to put the death rate at 10 per cent, of the whole population. It is hard to get at the number of deaths among the children. They are the greatest sufferers. A man or wo man will lie down when he gets hungry but a child begins to wander. (Jo in any direction vou will, the missionary said, and you will pick up little boys and girls who are either on the hunt, or have fallen in their tracks from fatigue or starvation. A very large proportion of the inmates of poor houses, or relief works, as well as all the Mission Com pounds are children. Although the missionary in making up his minutes, is very careful, still they are far higher than government reports. Every officer wants to be regarded as faithful and competent. Those districts that are declared famine districts may draw from relief funds any amount of money that is needed, so. except for the difficulty in administering those funds, no one need die. In a district there so many police cir cles. and while I was there, the police officer, who is an Englishman, told me that when he reported the death rate from famine to his superior officer, who is a Mohammedan, that he was told to change the number,and put a large pro portion of those who had died of starva tion, as dying of fever, etc. This, the man said, he refused to do, but promis ed to be more careful in the future in regard to details. The government lias established poor houses, and relief works all over the distiict. The people report that the attendants jerk off their tickets and turn them out. The tickets are tied onto to the necks of the inmates and the names recorded in a book. Well, after lie is recorded the attendants pull the ticket off, and the policeman in charge finds him without a ticket, turns him out and the poor house keepers are drawing for the origi nal number. It would be hard to prove this in an Indian court—though quanti ty of evidence is not wanting. Near one of the poor houses is a mango or chard. Two of J the missionaries, while out looking up starving people.blunder ed into the place, and there saw num bers of skeletons toni limb from limb by jackals,most of them had died with in the week or so, because the brains were still inside the skull. These peo ple, no doubt, had been in the poor ; house and were not reported dead, and : are supposed to be yet alive enjoying poor house bill of fare at Government expense. Now, the missionary who re ported these things to me. was not rail ing on the Government. He said. "No 1 Government ever done so much.no Gov ernment ever had such a task." Oh. it i is no easy matter to deal with such a famine in a heathen land, with the dense population that we find here. The mis sionaries in the different places are do ing what they can, and I shall now tell you how the missionaries, where we were, cared for all who would come. In the first place they did not care for > any one until their knees were the big gest part of the legs. Tliev cared for all alike, and indeed very few thought of ! their caste, but in order to be careful I that none might say that the missiona ries had used the famine to make Chris I tiaus of people, those who would rather ' have money than food were given that. < | but most of them wanted food. Quite a number of the women who were able I to cook, were given the place, and in this way earned their living, others as ! they became strong enough were put to I grinding the wheat. The boys were 1 taught to serve the food. When we I reached Fatepur, about 120 were being j j fed by the missionary there, anil during j the week we remained the number in creased to almost 200. | They were fed twice a day—about ■ noon and about 8 o'clock in the evening I This is the custom of the natives. All were made to sit in a circle on the ground,and each one received a cup full j of pulse or rice, and from one to three j native. i.'akv's made from what we call j Graham flour.* This wasj njucb as j they would have provided for them seves in times of plenty; many were so starved that they would have asked for • j more if they had not been warned that i if anyone complained, part or all of i what had already been received would ! iiavw tfi given up. This was the only j way they could be quiet;\ controlled ; They had all to wait until the serving ; j was done and a blessing asked,and then ' ! I am sure you would have enjoyed see- ! i ing those starved people eat. Many of j | the people we saw were so starved that ! ' yon cou'd count every bone and joint! !in then" Often they were too] i weak to walk. Soiu« juat la/ sti:pid j , Nothing but sight of food would arouse | j them. I visited several Government j poor h'juses. In one 1 saw a sight which : I think I shall remember as long as I live. Having visited the different ; wards, where hundreds of men, women ; and cliiijlreii >-ere being fed. we came i to the hospital in connection nitL Ui f , ■ 1 poor house, where the siek and very bad ' cases of starvation are cared for. There were about fifty people there. It al most makes me shudder yet when I think of how some of those people look ru ..lis, -■? i»'ked. poor as they could lie i and that to* about the eyes and mouth, which only com en with starvation. I said to my com pa n- ! i ion, 1 cau realize as never before what 1 some of onr brave soldier boys came i through during their imprisonment the ; time of the war. Near the center of | the yard lay two little girls, aged about : 10 and 12. nothing on them bnt nature's I own covering, so spent by famine thit 1 all flesh was gone Yon wondered how ; their little bones held together. Yon ■! could connt the joints of the back-bjne ,! through the skin in front. The abdo , | men having disappeared —leaving the ! skin clinging to the bones of the back— ' indeed unless I had seen the sight with | my own eyes, I could not have believed ! it possible" for a human l>eing to become iso jHX)r and still live. The poor little ! things were almost free from suffering, j I was very much stirred up by what 1 ; had already seen- and this a.vfnl sight ; was just more than I could endure and i I wept over them like a child. A poor starving mother, with her little, thin babe in arms, seeing that 1 felt sorry for these girls said to me, "They have no one." She was sitting between them, and was kept the swarm or tiies away from their faces, and tried to cover them them with an old dirty rag. I loved her because she was doing what she could for those little motherless child ren. As I turned away from that place of suffering from lack of food, I think I felt more humble and unworthy than ever before—more thankful for ihe dai lv supply of food with a determina tion. dear friends, to nse my pen in be half of the suffering people of this land. One little orphan girl had come to me just after 1 entered the poor house, and slipping up behind me put her arm around my waist and followed me all around. I felt sure she had come from some place where missionary ladies had been working. She asked me to take her away, but I had to tell her I could not, but, oh, how I wished that she only knew enough to run away and come to me. The keeper of the poorhouse is a hard hearted Mohammedan and seeing the child was attracted toward me he was very careful not to leave us alone, so I had no chance to talk to the child, may God save that helpless child from a life worse than death from starvation. We have heard of dreadful things in connection with traffic in famine girls, but we cannot get hold of these things, but one thing we do know, that very few girls are to be found either in poor houses, relief works or on mission Com pounds and while there is no lack of men, women and boys, the question can not help but come, where are the girls? But my letter is growing two long and I must hasten to tell you of our collec tion of l>oys a..,l the homeward trip. We could not take those who were very much reduced, nor those who were sick so many of them get sick when they get food, we did not want any but or phans, so we picked out about thirty five, put tickets around their necks, as soon as the children knew that we wanted children every body wanted to go to the Punjab although few. if any of them had any idea where the place was. Several who were thought too large pleaded so hard that they won t'he day, until our number swelled to forty We got unbleached muslin and clothed them without the help of needle or thread. Having secured reduced rates and a special genana car, third class, we started at midnight with our children. The children had been put in the car early in the evening and most of them were sleeping when we came to start. A third class car has few accommoda tions. Jast board seats reaching across the short way of the car. The children did not know how to use even what ac commodations they did find and so often it was not very pleasant to lie in the same car; but as we had lots of time at the stations, we kept things in pretty good order, by calling in the water man with his goat skin of water and the sweeper with his red broom and the two working together on seats and floor made the place inhabitable. We expected to be about sixty hours on the way, so had provided about <SOO native cakes and a hundred loaves of white bread, and several pounds of raw sugar, Our children were much interested in all they saw along the way. It was a new thing for them to be riding on the train. They were remarkably good and quiet to have l>een gathered in so recently from the jungle. The people along the way were interested in them. And before they reached Ranal Pinde w here they are now. they had received several treats of sweets. One man wanted one of the l>oys for a brother who had no children, he was told to send down to Allahabad and get fifteen or twenty for himself. In due time we reached the end of our journey and I have since heard from the boys and girls that they are getting along all right. I must not forget to tell you that one of the little boys we brought was called by the missionaries "Cactus" because his mother had twisted his neck, arms and legs, and left him to die in a cactus hedge near the mission house in Allahabad. He was gathered up and a hundred and thirty thorns taken from his little starved body, his neck braced up by the kind lady doctor, and was doing nicely. And now my friends why have 1 written yon all this? Have you already guessed the reason? It is because I want you to help the famine sufferer in this land. God has so abundantly blessed so many in Butler county that yon might give your hundreds and not miss it, and I want all to have a part. I want even' one who reads these lines to send me something, be it ever so little and I think the best way for you to do this will l.v for VQII to send yftnr money to the editor of your paper, and I am sure he will gladly acknowledge all gifts and send them on to me and I shall send them to the missionaries who are feeding the starving. God has so abundantly blessed our land I think we should all be ready to help those in dis tress. If any one would rather send their contribition direct to me, ask your banker to give you a draft on the bank at London and send it on to me. The postage to India is five cents. My address you will find at the beginning of this letter. I am sure all my friends will be glad to know lum well and very happy in my work for the Master. Y ours sincerly, EMMA DEAN ANDERSON.
