Actual Condition of Kansas.
From the various conflicting ac
counts, it is certain that the people in
some parts of Kansas are in a very
miserable condition. Three years ago
the grasshoppers made their appearance
in Phillips county, and partly de
stroyed the crops. The next year they
left the settlers about half the corn
crop, and last year, coming in clouds,
after eating the corn they stripped the
timber, and finally, after destroying
the tops of the potatoes, dug into the
soil and finished with the tubers, as
well as beets, turnips, and other vege
tables. Tho grasshoppers were fol
lowed by a drought which interfered
with the hay crop, and upon the top
of these disasters caine the severest

The result of all has been that horses
and cattle have died for want of food,
and many teams that have been kept
alive are so poor that they are not fit
for work. Similar accounts have come
from many other sources, and though
it is very likely that impostors may
have profited by charity designed for
those who were really needy, there
can be no doubt that there is yet much
suffering in some of the regions which
the grasshoppers have infested.
