There were six In tbe family, mother, father and four children, ranging in age from 3 to V years. When he entered two of tha children were dead and tbe rest la a stupefied condition, hardly able to • ipsak. They had boon Imprisoned two* week* while the blizzard was raging. Their fuel and provisions were exhausted and they could not leave the house. The two yonnger children were rather starved to death than frozen, while the ru't were praying for death to relieve their Bufferings. Mr. Anslor wonderingly axked them bow they managed to brave H out so long. They pointed to the bones of a cat and dog, which were" picked clean and dry, their only morsel, to eat for two long weeks. Mr. Ansley ministered to their wants from his scanty larder 1 , and warned tha neighbors of their condition. The latter promptly arrived and attended to their wantt. ifeager details are reported of like cases, but nothing definite can be learned.

THE KANSAS LIAR STILL LIVE& Editor Mornfnrd Says Ha Is tbe Irre>rMsl- ble "Special." KANSAS Crrr, Jan. IT.—Morrison Mumford, editor of The Times, referring to the reports of great suffering in Kansas,, says bo has had reliable men in the alleged destitute district, and that tho reports of destitution are false. He continues: The weather In Kansas has not been unusually severe thl* winter. A few weeks ago there' was a Bcarcltyjjf coal In some quarters, owing to the inability of tho railroad* to furnish 'Cars, but happily an abundance of fuel was pro vlded before cold weather came. As to general suffering lu Kansas, It has axiated only In the minds of Irresponsl-le corresiiondents. There hax been a larfro Immigration during the past year, and naturally there art* sporadic ca-ies ot destitution, which have b«ou promptly cared for In the communities where they have occurre I. All things considered, Kansas Is having a satisfactory winter, with fine pronpecta for big crops. It is In very much better condition than any other newly settled territory.

It Is Haoh Encouraged by Its Last Tsar's Experience. Krw YORK, Jan. 17.—Tho board of mediation and arbitration transmitted their annual rop.rt to the legislature Monday even- Ins, which Is summarised as follows: The work of the board has' justified tbe belief expressed that a power of Inquiry and publicity would have great moral effect • In restraining the disposition to exact too much from employes, and to strike without justifying cause against employers.
