IN RUSSIAN BARRACKS.
One View of the Military Life of the Czar'fl
'Shall we take a look at the bar
racks?" sugg-ehted the colonel. "Xo th
ing would .suit me better," I answered;
so leaving our horses in charge of the
Costack, Chumski led the way through
a series of vast spaces occupied mainly
by little wooden beds. Each little bed
had on it a hard mattress, a pillow,
and a, coarse woolen blanket. Be
neath each bed was a box. in which the
soldier's kit wai kept, and at short in
tervals throughout the buildings were
ehromo portraits of the czar, and very
gaudy pictures of Russian saints. The
barracks were entirely of wood, the
ceilings low, and the windows infre-
quent, yet so clean was everything
kept that I detected no disagreeable
odor. In the kitchen T helped myself
to a taste of the soup that was simmer
ing m vast calurons over the brick
oven, and made up my mind that I
could stand a pretty long canoe
cruise if my food were no worse than
this. There are two fast-days in the
week Wednesday and Friday and this
was one of them, so that all they had
was lentil soup. Ulack bread went with
the soup not such very bad bread,
either. They had a drink that suggest
ed the mead we use at harvest time,
consisting of water in which rye bread
has been absorbed. Of this I drank a
who.le glass -with relish. So far, then.
I had stumbled on nothing about the
Russian soldier's life that would have
discouraged me from enlisting had I
been brought up to accept the czars
word as law.
'"Do you have much desertion?"
"Xot many in my regiment," an
swered the colonel, with complacencj-;
"my men are pretty well cared for.
"But,"' said he, "the .lews have rath
er a tough time of it, I have about a
hundred of them in this regiment, and
they do their work as well as any of
them. In most cases, however, they
are exposed to much insult and brutal i
tj. Sometimes the soldiers beat them
unmercifully, and it is no wonder that
they try to desert. The rough peasant
has a traditional hatred of the Jew,
and if the officers of the regiment are
not energetic in setting their faces
against it, there is pretty sure to be
some deviltry against them. The Rus
sian peasant finds it delightful to get
even with the man whom he looks upon
as the author of all his ills. .
In the twentj'-seven "governments"
making up the western frontier of Rus
sia, ten of which constitute Poland, the
Jews are very much crowded to
gether. In 1S74 Russia followed Ger
many in adopting the principle of
universal military service, and conse
quently forcing Jews into the army.
The government has only published
the statistics of desertion between 1S7G
and 18S3, and for these years the num
ber of Jew deserters in those districts
amounted to a round ninety thousand
men. The government ceased then to
publish such figures, but it is estimated
that the number of Jews to-da3' who
have run away from their regiments,
or at least have failed to appear after
passing the necessary physical tests,
and after being ordered out that this
number is at least one hundred and fifty
As we galloped home to the noonday
dinner, I noticed that my colonel greet
ed the men of other regiments than his
own by merely conforming to the usual
military requirements; but when he
met any of his One Hundred and Seven
tieth, he shouted out a hearty
good-day to them, which they
answered with a burst of strange sound
intended to convey the notion, "we are
glad to have our colonel's greeting."
This struck me as a very pleasant In-

What the World's Fair Manage
ment Has Done.
PLEHTY OF SEATS TO BEST TJP027.
Ko "expense Spared "Whenever the Comfort
of the People Is Involved Bcfntation of
"Lies Published in Certain Papers About
the Fair Something About the Colum
"World's Fair, June 8. Special.
Now that the glorious days of June are
here and the number of visitora to the ex
position is daily increasing, the shady
Beats to be found at various places
throughout the grounds are always occu
pied. In a letter written a couple of
weeks ago I said there was seating ca
pacity on the grounds for 10,000 people,
and that this seemed to be enough. But
almost immediately it became apparent
the sittings must be increased if the peo
ple were to have sufficient resting place.
It must be said to the credit of the man
agers of the fair that just-as soon as hey
realized the necessity of increasing these
accommodations they set about the work.
Settees enough to hold 50,000 more people
were at once ordered, and day after day
the contractors have placed w agonloads of
benches all over the grounds. The man
agers of the fair did this at considerable
expense at a time when they scarcely
'knew which way to turn for money. They
had exhausted their treasury in opening
the gate May 1st, and were in debt. For
every dollar that was taken in at the gates
a hundred hands were outstretched. Con
tractors, supply Louses, officials and even
workmen wero unpaid. The attendance,
owing to unfavorable weather and high
railroad rates, was not as great as had
been expected. Yet jn the face of all these
difficulties the managers, be it said to
their honor, did not hesitate to incur ex
penditure whenever the comfort of the
people was involved.
I do not intend to pose as a defender of
the managers, nor as their apologist, but
I like to see justice done. "When one reads
in eastern papeis criticisms of the man
agement of the fair that are notoriously
false and malicious it is not easy to main
tain silence concerning them. It is not
true that the "World's fiir is a great
money-making scheme. If it were the
directors would have avoided millions of
dollars of expenditure would have kept
in their treasury vast sums that wero ex
pended for adornment, for statuary, for
public comfort, for elegance, that could
have been saved by a narrow and selfish
policy. Why, these very directors, the
best business men of Chicago, have given
and continue to givo their time and ener
gies to this enterprise without a dollar of
salary or direct reward.
They do not stint their expenditure in
any worthy direction. Come even now to
the fair "and you will see long lines of
wagons waiting every evening to carry
their loads of benches to various parts of
the grounds. Other lines of wagons are
'.aden with fresh sod, which is brought In
very day by trainloads, to be used in
ireshening the park. A huge street-cleaning
department waits also for the visitors
to leave the gates, nnd then works all
night. By morning every bit of dirt and
rubbish, every particle of mud and refuse,
has been cloared away. When you come
to Chicago make an effort to reach the ex
position at least once or twice during your
sojourn early in the morning. Then you
will see the fair at its best. Everything is
bright and clean. There is a sweetness, a
freshness everywhere which cannot be
found in the afternoon, after the multi
tude has come.
The managers of the fair spent a small
fortune for music. Without cost the "vis

splendor, and fill his soul with music's
divine strains. An admission fee is
charged to some of the special concerts in
Choral hall concerts at which famous
soloists appear but every such concert is
a fmancial losS to the management, and is
not expected to be anything but a loss.
The large appropriation made for music is
another examplo of the generosity of the
men who have made this fair.

policemen, and many of them were of
necessitv raw recruits. Thev needed train
ing and experience. Many of them v ere
country j-oung men who sought this em
ployment for the opportunity it would
givo them to see the exposition and the
life which is in and about the exposition.
lt would indeed be surprising if among o
many men there were not a few whose
heads were turned by the exercise of "a
little brief authority," a few who were
ignorant and rude. But in all the time I
have been here I have yet to meet the first
case of this sort. Invariably I have been
treated witb courtesy by theso much
maligned gentries. I have yet to witness
an instance of their brutality or insolence.
Two or three weeks ago even the Chicago
papers were filled with complaints of the
guards, but in a majority of these cases
the facts were that some one had attempt
ed to violate the rules and had lost his
temper when restrained or placed under
arrest by the representative of the law.
I have watched the Columbian guard
with a good deal of interest. They were
2,300 j-ouug men gathered from all walks
o life, particularly those in which the In
fluences are not. refinins or elevating. As
hired they were a motley mob, unaccus
tomed to discipline and some of them
strangers to civility. Well, it is interest
ing to note how quickly they have been
transformed into good soldiers. Already
they have the bearing, the repose, the dig
nity mingled with the considerateness
which should ever characterin
j are thrust into positions of responsibility
Rlid dprntd snthnnrr Thin jitttv of
guards has been to me an cmoation of
itself a display of tho manhood of the
common people, and of the adaptability of 1
our young men to military service. It j
presents an object lesson in the soldierly j
qualities of Americans, and shows this '
generation in a email way that which the
last saw en a crid and more terrible
icale tho case -siti which ozr cxmntrr-
men may leave the plow and the bench,
the railway brake and the desk, the coun
ter and the school, and become part of an
effective, intelligent and thoroughly dis
ciplined martial force.
It would be foolish to- say these guards
are altogether perfect. They are not ideaL
But the other extreme, that reached by
the spirit of factfinding which is alto
gether too prevalent in this country, is
equally absurd. The guard&.are a credit
to the country and the expositkm7 and
they are improving every day. Some peo
ple ask why so many guards are necessary,
Two thousand five hundred is a pretty
large number of policemen for one city, it
Is true. But it must be remembered they
have both day and night duty to perform.
Their vigil over the almost priceless ex
hibits here displayed never ceases. It is
estimated there are in the exposition goods

ones. Two hundred and fifty guards are
needed in thegreat Manufactures building
alone, during the day; and 100 are stap

are assigned to the Art palace. Besides
the buildings and their exhibits the walks
and all other parts of the grounds must bo
Study the situation as I have done and
you will see that 2,500 is none too large it
number of guards for the "White City.
You must not forget that vast crowds of
people come here every day, and that it
would be simple madness to leave them
without police protection. As long as
everything goes well perhaps there is not
much need of the presence of the guards.
But suppose fire breaks out, or there is
panic from any cause? These are ths
things the management has had to think
of. Though the fault-finders may be
thoughtless the men who are responsible
for the conduct of this great enterprise
cannot afford to be. And I must say they
appear to have thought of everything.
It would require many columns to ex
pose all the lies I have seen in eastern
papers concerning the World's fair. Life
is too short to devote much of it to this
purpose. There are too many things here
to admire and praise. But I wish to re
assure my readers on a few points. The
fair is now finished. It is complete and
perpect. If an exhibit here and there is
not just as its owners or managers desire
to have it, probably il will be by the time
this reaches your eye; and at any rate, all
these exhibits together do not amount to
a drop in the great bucket. The fair is J
clean and orderly, as I have shown you.
So much attention has been paid to the
comfort of visitors that every one is aston
ished at the completeness of the arrange
ments. There are seats within the buildings and
without. The toilet rooms and lavatories
are everywhere free. There are rest
rooms in various buildings. If one is
taken ill or overcome by heat an ambul
ance service attends and a good hospital
awaits. Drinking water free and good
may be had at every turn. There is no ex
tortion within the grounds. Those restau'
rant keepers and other providers who
found they were on the wrong road.
transportation facilities to and from the
fair grounds are almost perfect. No pre
vious exposition was so well served in this
respect. On the daj's of greatest attend
ance there is no uncomfortable crowding.
Letnio give you a little personal exper
ience that you may judge of the conditions

SHE WANTED A DIVORCE.
Discouraged by the Lawyers, She Is Still
' Not AVIthout Hope.
"I want a divorce," said the woman,
addressing the lawyer, "because I am i
sick and tired of my husband."
"Very good reason, ma'am," respond
ed the attorney, beaming-. "I admire
your spunk; any woman who grows
tired of h6r husband is entitled to a
divorce. The laws of this country were
never framed to compel a woman to
live with a man she was tired of."
"I I have seen so little of my hus
band that I am tired of him; so I am
here after a divorce."
"What's that?" said the lawyer,
edging closer; "most remarkable case I
ever heard of; tell me about it, ma'am."
"Well," pursued the woman, wiping1
her ej-es, "when we were first married
he was in the life insurance business,
and it did not require him to be away
more than ten hours a day. I bade
him good-bye in the morning with a
heavy heart. All day long I used to
look for him. He just doted on my
cooking. He used to make me glad,
occasionally, by running home be
tween times and taking a quarter from
my apple pie. I tell 3ou, sir, it did my
heart good to see him eat."
"We were very poor in those days,
sir, but I tell 3ou honestly, we were
happy. He lost his place and the next
thing he tried was drumming for a
candj' store. He went on the road,
and. somehow, his trips grew longer
and longer. 3Iy apple pies spoiled in

wonderfully. In a short time he bought
