FAMINE IN EUROPE.
An exhaustive study of the world's
food supply in the forthcoming num
ber of the American Agriculturist em
'iphaslzea facts of grave Importance to
both America and Europe. It declares
that half has not been told about the
European shortnge In breadstuff,
which not even a bountiful crop this
year would have relieved.
Continental powers,especlalIy Russia
suppress thefactsas faras possible, In
many Russian provinces the scarcity
of food became pronounced as far back
as February last. In the Koustantl
novka district many families have not
cooked a meal since Easter, but subsist
on bread, soaked rye, grain, etc., be
stowed In charity. The astounding
shortage In Russia's yield of rye, an
nounced a month ago by the Ministry
of Finance, proves even greater than
the most extravagant estimates, and
obliterates all possibility of Russia ex
porting any of her scant wheat crops.
Accepting the largest estimates of
production, both at homo and abroad,

and even assuming that the United
States and Canada can export 225,000,
000 bushels, thd American Agricul
turist still finds a deficit In the world's
food; supply of at least 200.000,00 1
bushels of wheat and rye, with a pos
sibility of tho shortage being twice as
great. Added to this Is the almost
total failure of the potato crop In Ire
land, and a serious curtailment In the
yield of potatoes on the Continent.
Even with the utmost economy of
distribution and unheard of consump
tion of American maize, grave distress
Is before the masses of Europe.
The Agriculturist says the enormous
exports of wheat and flour from the
United States In August proves that
Europe regards the situation as worse
than It has yet been painted. Other
wise, why should she buy In a single
month close upon tho harvest nearly
half as much wheat as she took from
the United States during the entire
first eight months of tho year follow'
lug one of our largest wheat crops and
a period of bed-rock prices? Indeed,
August wheat exports wore almost
treble those of the same month last

Tho flames spread rapidly and soon ignited
tho numerous outbuildings that surrounded

confined to the destruction of two outside
kitchens and their contents, and the slight
burning of the rear exteriors of the main
building. The fire was caused by mine

Serious Acoldent at Indian Ridgo
At about four o'clock yesterday aftor-
nonn an empty ear was run upon ono of
ho cages In the Indian Ridge colliery
shaft and tho engineer was given the signal
to lower, Tbo shaft is 310 feet deep.
When the cane had been lowered about
100 feet tho ropo snapped in two near tbo
thcavo. Tbo cage, being released thereby,
dashed down tho sha with terrific velocity
and WA3 shattorod at tho bottom, 200 feet
below, with tho empty car. A roport at
once spread through town thatln'ido F ro
raan Morgan Davis, of tho Plank Rideo
section, and Fire Boss John Sneddon nnd
others had been killed. This creatod a
sensation In tbo town, but vory fortunatoly
no ono was injured. Had tho accident
hepponed ton minutes later, when tho

menced, tho results would havo beon dread
ful. Tho shattored cage was replaced and

PETE KREIGER'S DOG.
Tho Animal Knew More Than Ita
There is no one In this section, with the
possible exception of Dave Howard ono ot
tho engineers at the Kehley Run colliery,
who is t qual to O. A I. I'olioeman Pot.i
Kreiger in telling fishing or hunting ttorie-,
relating to incidents of years ago. At
the Lehigh depot yesterday he told uf a
dog. "When that dog was given me" ho
said "I almost laughed at the man when h
told me it was a bird dog with an ex
cellent record and had originally cost over
100. But I accepted tho statement and
took tho animal homo. Ono day, when
going up tho ravino whero the dams an
now, I told tho fellow who was with mo I
thought I would shoot tho thing. Ho told
mo not to do so and I was glad I didn't
somo timo after. Ono day, years ago, when
thero was a nico piece of woodland near
Roads' old colllory, now Shenandoah City,
I was out with a gun and had tho dog with
mo. I had beaten him for not going into
brush and turnod my attention to a squirrel.
I fired and killed it, then tu ned to sea
whero tho dog was. His noso was painted
in anothor direction. I picked up tho
squirrol and wont to tho dog. Ho stood
motionicse and I felt convincod thero wbs
something in tho brush. I 6tartod in and
at tho samoraomont a pheasant raised. I
fired and it fell. I told tho dog to go In,
but ho would not movo. I advancod
threateningly and tho beast rolled over on
his back, as dogs will when they ox poet a
boating. I thought his actions strange and
turned to re-enter tho brush. Tho dog was
on his feet in an instant and took his old
position, pointing to tho placo where tho
pheasant had rui-.od and standing liko a
stbtuto. As I advanced into the brush
another pheasant flew and I again fired.
The moment I did so tho dog sprang into
tho brush. That taught me a losson. A
good settpr will never advanco until all tho
birds are raised. I kept the dog for years
after and prized him highly."
