gravity of the situation, ami money is
beginning to 11 rw in on all sides for the
relief of the starving Moujiks. Unfortu?
nately, charity is almost too late. The
censor at first prevented the truth from
being published by the Russian press.
Now that the facts are allowed to ap?
pear, tho famine specter is stalking
through the laud. Some authorities
estimate that as many as ?.'n.OUO.OCO

cure British and American aid during '
the last famine, appeals to the British j
