Iho proaa of this country haa not

tho fair. I no conditions existing In Fin

district number about 2,600,000, and a
largo proportion of them are In destitute
clrcumatutice, from a crop (allure.
Tho canto of the (allure has boon an
extremely wot, cold soason, Tho low
lauds were Hooded out, and oon tho
high lands whero tho hay is raised wero
too wet to produce and savo n crop.
Tho reeult la not only a scarcity ot food
(or the poopln, but starvation (or tho
cattle. The Fall linn been so bad that
tho Piill-toKu grain has also frozen out.
