FAMINE THREATENS RUSSIA
Crops Fall In Iarge Sections and
Government Does Nothing. x
ST. PETERSBURG. Aug. 4. It Is feared
that there will be a recurrence of the
great Russian famine of a few years ago,
when Rev. T. de Witt Talmage and a
number of, Americans visited this country
and distributed provisions with a bounti
ful hand. At that time hundreds of thou
sands of Russians suffered because of the
shortage of the crop and the world-wide
relief was gladly accepted by the govern

Japan is on. It is doubtful whether the
government will be willing to confess its
weakness and allow outside aid, no mat
ter how many people may be starving In
the interior of Russia, '
According to the reports at hand from
the provinces there will be a total failure
of the crop in many districts of Central,
Eastern and Northern Russia, and, as a
result, the famine in store for the affect
ed districts will undoubtedly far surpass
the famines in the years 1E91 and 1837.
