STARVATION IX KANSAS.
Kansas City .Journal, Jim. 20.
Information has been received in
this city that many oi the people in
Seward county. Kail., are on the
verge of starvation. Appeals for
help have been sent to various places
and yesterday a letter was received
at the post office in this
dressed to the postmaster, that fold
of a horrible stale of affairs in that
country. The letter was written by
Mrs. James K. Richards, who live.-«
eleven miles from West Plains.
For some time past matters have
been growing worse and the people
in that community, who have been
forced to remain are suffering for
the necessities of life. '-Many of
us have not sufficient food anil only

to earn any thing by labor, as there
is nothing t' do and no money to
recompense t.hetn, if such was the
case. Children are without proper
nourishment, and the mild winter
lias been their salvation.
The writer makes a plaint.ive ap
peal for assistance to the citizens of
this city, through the postmaster.
She says that anything sent to her
at West Plains will lie" distributed
•where needed, and adds that if then
is any doubt as to her intentions,
she would ask anyone to secure the
name of some responsible person at
West Plains. "'Help they must,

and many of those who had gone
there 'vith little money lost their all.
Too poor to leave they were com
pelled to remain and make an effort
to keep the wolf from the door.
Little by little their substance was
consumed, until starvation stared
them in the face. Without food or
clothes, they were at last compelled
to make an appeal to the outside
