Now the American people are called
upon to donate money enough to edu

India. This Is the latest move of a
recently organized society calling its
self the Americo-Indla Famine Relief
Committee, and they expect to raise
enough money by public subscriptions
'to carry out their plans. Already lit
erature is being sent out all over
the country asking for funds, for this
purpose, and it is the desire of the
committee to establish a branch in
every city and town of any import

committee to think that American
benefactors whose generous gifts
saved these children when starving,
will be glad to make use of our unde

for helping those thousands of India's
famine children until they are able to
earn their own living.
While at first the mere support of
"these 25,000 children was the pressing
thought, there has now been added an
equally urgent necessity,, for their
proper industrial training.

Walter S. Brooks. Florence Burns.
The incident in tho case of Miss Florence Burns, tho young Brooklyn woman charged with tho -murder of
young Walter S. Brooks, are. so thrilling and unusual that tho greatest interest is manifested throughout tho
entire country. Miss Burns, the accused, is a young girl refined and of good familv. The dead boy was also well
connected. Brooks is supposed to have proven faithless to the beautiful young girl who, it is charged, shut her
betrayer in a moment of passion. Miss Burns steadfastly denies her guilt and her calm self possession under
the serious charge that hangs over her causes the prison officials to marvel greatly.

This applies to holdover senators.
None of the present members of the

The Paper Industry.
The Wisconsin paper making dls
trict is said to be the 'second most
important in the world, ranking next
to the Massachusetts district. Tho
latest official directory reports forty-
four paper mills in Wisconsin, to
which should be added thirty-six
mills making wood pulp and sulphite
fiber for tho paper mills. It is esti
mated that 5,000 to 6,000 persons are
employed in and about these mills,
but there are other thousands de
pendent on the paper industry.
Among these may be mentioned the
men who get out the wood and those
-who .transport Jt to the mills. Then
there are various Wisconsin factories
which are now manufacturing machin
ery for the mills, and many persona
are engaged in the Bale and handling
o thek finished paper.
