Reports of terrible famine la Sweden

Bothnia on the south and west and
bounded by Russia and Lapland on the
east and north. Finland U away frota the
beaten path of the tourist, and eoase
qaently its featares and the eharacterlstiea
of Its people are not well known.
Finland ta larger than England. Ireland,
Scotland and the Netherlands combined.
It has Ita own constitution, which waa
framed la 1772. This Instrument waa modi

dachy was ceded to the emperor of Russia,

the clergy, the burghers and the peasants
are represented, and names as the head of
the state the "grand duke of Finland,"
who Is the czar. The patriotic Flnlander
speaka of the cur as the grand duke. Just
as the Hungarian doe of Emperor Frant
Joseph as his king.

The Inhabitants of Finland are a serious

as the organ of America's citiiena of ftcaa

translation of a letter recently sent by one
Finnish clergyman to another. After tell
ing how difficult It Is. owing to the severity
of the Rose Ian censorship sver letters as
well as the press, to make known abroad
the true condition of the country, the writer
describes what he aaw when la the regular
round of his duty he visited the home of a
family la a remote part of his parish. On
approaching the house he found lying In
the snow the deal bo-ly of a girl of 7, who
had evidently perished while making a des

I found a small piece of bark bread and
gnawed off bone. In one bed was the
lifeless body of the mother, and clasped in
her arms and pressed to her bosom was the
corpse of her youngest child, a little girl
t years old; In another bed was the hus
band and father, sick and helpless, more
dead than alive, and by hit side the dead
body of a little boy 4 years old." Such
tragedies are said to be occurring all
through ths famine district, and Russia,
with her owa hungry hordes more numer

his share of the family bath. By this cus
tom the population cf Finland becomes
clean ones every week, although few of
the country people know what daily ablu
tion means. The bath Is of a kind peculiar to
the country, but it resembles the Russian
bath la some respects. Ths room la hi?h
