India Heller Proclamation.
WHEBEaS, through the medium
of the public press and appeals from
mission boards and missionaries return-
ing from that far off land we learn of
the presence of dread famine among
the people of India, devastating the
country, causing untold suffering a-
mong millions of human beings ami
daily bringing thousands to the grave
by meant) of a most awful death
through the tortures and horrors of
Therefore, I, U. M. Barnes, governor
of the Territory of Oklahoma, do call
upon the people of our prosperous
young territory to give from their plen-
ty a small portion to alleviate the suffer-
ings of their brother men in this foreign
The famine district is great in extent
fully sixty millions of people now suf-
fering the pangs of hunger aud from
eight to ten millions actually undergo-
ing the tortures of starvation.
This great calamity has been brought
about by the total failure of the rainy
season in a vast agricultural district, not
through any fault of the people or the
government under which they live.
The English government is spending
hundreds of thousands of dollars but is
unable to reach but a small portion of
the starving millions; The christian
people of many nations and of our own
great county are giving, and vet the
appeal comes from many who have not
yet received help and have but a few
inoutlifuls of food b"t ween them and
The Lord lias blessed our fair terri-
tory with abundant crops and timely
seasons; given to our people health and
strength and increasing prosperity-
docs it not become us as a christian
people to give from our abundance to
those who have none?
Consider the starving mothers and
children wandering from place to place
in a oeaslcss vain search for bread;
children crying in awful hunger and
parents unable to give ttmm a morsel:
people dropping dead on evefy side,
veritable skeleton* crawling about aud
beaching for a morsel of food or tlie
relief of death: think of thin and tlten
look about at tliC pro perity which sur-
round* you, and let tlie re^pon* be
prompt and liberal.

Attempt at Suicide.
It Might Han Been Prevented.
[From the Boston Post.]
While the walks in the Public G'.rden
were crowded yesterday afternoon aboil*
t 30 o'eloek, people near the entrance g.ite«
it the corner of Beacon and Charles street*
ivere horrified to see a man suddenly pluirte
' kiiiie repeatedly into his tliroat and fail to
VViiile wai'tag for a conveyance an officer
questioned the would-be suicide, who v;u.
' i Unit 50 years of age, as to his name, address,
ind reason tor wishing to end his life, but
ihe man steadfastly refused to give any inf. r-
mation regarding himself. He was taken to
ilie Massachusetts General Hospital and
surgical attendance given liira. Although
we;ik from loss of blood it is probable be
will recover. About 9 o'clock la-t night a
hospital attendant got a little information
from him. lie said his name was Samtic}
D , and that he came some weeks rfo
from New Brunswick. The last few d.iys
4i head has felt qwer, and he has been
daring about thecity, not knowing which way
to turn. What impelled him to commit hit
rash act he was nmible to say.
The above is the familiar but terrible
story of the results of mentalderangement
■ansed by overstrain of the nervous system.
People who have dizzinrm, hradnrht or bn k-
trht, or who are troubled with md/tmch'Jy 'it
ittf/ri !■ nt fwlirgs, are already will <.u li t
