in the Tamboff province, where the Obse:

and children. In a spacious wooden

This sc(Ercely believable incident takes ered
Sus back a long way. Mass suicide
is not unknown in the history of Rus- bous
sia. Brought to despair by adminis- sped
trative persecution or to escape fa- drvt
mine and epidemic, entire villages
have committed wholesale suicide.:
Often this was the result of religious ter I
f'. anaticism. Peter I, who was some- must
what Bolshevist in the enforcing of his grou
reforms, was met in northern Russia pall
by numerous conflagrations involving turn
hundreds of deaths. As late as the has
reign of Alexander III a case occurred isn't
in the south when a crowd of fanatics abod
allowed themselves to be buried alive tr

Superstitious Bulgarians Dread
Spirits of Evil.
Observe Many Odd Custome Which
They Believe of immense Impor
! tance to Their Welfare.
Are you one of thuose who will not
walk under a ladder, raise an um
brella in the house or spill the salt
without casting a few gralni over
your shoulder? if you believe in
these or the kindred superstitions fast
dying out in this country, you will
feel a degree of kiniship with the av
erage Bulgarian peasant. For there
are so mlany things a Bulgarian may
not do, writes Temple Manning, in the
Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Among the many customs of rural
Bulgaria. to neglect which is consid
ered unlucky and even sinful, are the
following: To bring flour into the
house and neglect to fumigate it with
special incense. This must he done to
drive out of the flour any demon
which may have entered the sack.
When the housewife or her daugh
ter goes to the spring for water, she
must not neglect to spill a little on the
ground before even starting with the
pall for the house. This is done to
turn but any elemental spirit which
P has been scooped into the pail. If it
isn't done the spirit may take up its
abode in the house, and may even en
ter the body of one of the family who
drinks the water.
If you are asked to sell a loaf of
bread you must not part with it with
out first having cut or torn off a
- small piece from an end. The spirit
that has helped you make the bread
must be given a chance to fly out of
n the loaf and still linger in the house
he loves.
Under no circumstances may you
give a child a spoon to play with. I
k do not know just why you may not
i do this, but it is considered exceed
ingly unlucky.
Nor can I account for the belief
which is common in some far farming
Ssections of Bulgaria, that it is very
Ik unlucky to give a child under seven
years of age a bath. The child may
wash itself, but that is its own look
! out. The mother may wash the child
a little also, but not give it a bath all
e. over at one time.
S, Imagination easily accounts for the
h, , prohibition against cleaning a stable,
s selling milk, fetching water or doing
0 any of the many other farm duties
after darkness has fallen.
, i But how is one to account for the
:Bulgarian belief that to permit a dog
to sleep on the roof of a house will
disturb the rest of the dead members
e of the family?
a These and countless other super
d, stitions rule the daily work and hab
ir its of old Bulgarians and the youths
in who live and work in many a shut-it
to section of that hilly land.
