But altogether, under the circumstances, the

discuasions which arose, they only served to

Tills relaxed vigilance on tba part of the
prison officials was a great boon to u,, for we
could converse without fear of interruption.
Among the most noted of the political hi the
artv was Narushevitch, a noted 1'olwli wri

four years, at the expiration of that time,
without having any charge proven agaln-t

Ha waa a patriarch among the other politi
cals, by whom he was treated with the great
est respect N amahs v Itch was accompanied
by his only daughter, Anna, a beautiful girl
about 11 vean old. She voluntarily shared
her beloved father'! fato and did all iu her
power to cheer his sail life.
It Seemed sad to see this bright young girl,
of her own free will and volition, give up all
tit Joy of life and willingly bury beraelf In
the wilds of Siberia. , Her cheeks were round
and rosy, her eyes bright and her whole man
ner extremely animated and cheerful. Hha
waa a refined, highlv educated girl, beloved
by all those with whom too came into con
tact, even the old governor of t tie prison re
laxed many of Its iron bound rules in her
favor, and in many way, showed her much

tbia way we aw so much of her She was
Ilka her father in figure, with the same dark

tba yean to come they would tell their own

Another sad case was that of an artillery
officer, Ivan Masloff. He was a young man,
perhaps HO years of age, tall and handsome, a
graduate of the highest artillery collage iu
tha empire, and had carried off the first prUe

It (Ins thlt:g 1 have noticed about politicals
is that when together thov endeavor to Is- as
cheerful as isssnble. It is only the p. fel
low, condemned to solitary confinement who
yield tn despair and commit suicide.
Umaloff, another member of our com
pany, bad just been released, after two years
prot in I etropnrlovski fortress. Before his
incarcerntion he had been a professor of lan
guages and earned a fair Income, but whou
I mw him he was an invalid and prematurely
aged, with snow white bair, he was accom
panied by his aged mother, whose only sou
he was. Although old and feeble in laxly,
bar mind was remarkably strong and clear.
She declared that nothing iu tha world would
reconcile bar to parting from Bacba that
where be was ordered there would she go
also, even to the remotest point of the great
Mom. Izmaloff was a little woman, with
beautiful gray eyes; her manner was sub
dued and refined she had received her edu
cation at Hmolni Institute, in the capital city.
laxaaiofT bad been arrested for participating
in a riot ..f the students, brought about by
the oppressive rules issued by the minister of
education. The students nad rebelled against
the unnecessary and tyrannical restrictions
imposed upon them, and Izmaloff , as one of
the tutors, was In the act of quelling the dis
turbance when arrested; bis being In the
midst of the rioters was sufficient excuse for
the unlawful act. Thus was another bright
life crashed by the oppressor.
After becoming acquainted our time was
passed In discussing various scientific ques
tions, and in relating interesting stories of
our past life. As became true Russians, we
all played cards. The government allows a
prisoner, if a nobleman, fifteen kopekas a
day; to the peasant and other not priviliged
classes seven kopekas per day is allowed for
their maintenance. Each prisoner must fur
Dish his own food from the sum allowed.
The first act of tbe politicals on forming a
party, either In prison or on the road, is to
elect a starrmta or elder to manage their af
fairs; to him each prisoner gives so many
kopekas per day, and from it be supplies their
wants. He is like a general ii'rintendent,
taking charge of everything. It not infre
quently hapfs-tis that the politicals are well
supplied w ith money. In such cases life, of
course, is much smoother than for the poor
fellow who must eke out an existence on his
seven kopekas per day, which in 8t. Peters
burg is barely sufficient to provide him with
black bread to sustain life.
The ,vnithv one prisoner displays for an
other is something wonderful, an instance of
which I will relate. We had among our
numlier a peasant named PopofT. He was
rather a superior member of his class, who
had suffered arrest for striving to elevate his
neighbors to his level. Ijong years of suffer
ing had broken his health, and the black
bread purchaftcd with bis miserable allowance
no longer sufficed to sustain life. The rest of
the party, seeing the needs of the man, gen
erously contributed from their own small
store of money tbe sum of five roubles and
sixty kopekas, which they placed in the
starosta's hand, for the purchase of more
nourishing food. A little was spent for ex
tras each dav. and the sum, though small,
lasted i considerable time.
Each political prisoner of the company had
his own sad story to relate of bow he became
a victim of the abuses practiced throughout
the empire. It would require too much
space to commit to print the tales of the nu
merous indignities to which really innocent
men and women were subjected. One thing
which surprised me very much wasthe knowl
edge that so few of the number belouged to
any secret society they had by ties of family
or through commercial intercourse been con
nected with persons of whose secret cn.ll-

ing they wore not aware. The majority
were simply suspects, who did not hesi
tate to declare their iutentiou of
Joining the Nihilist party if they ever
obtained their release. Thev refused
lougei t recognize u government which
could heap such abuses on its innocent sub
jects While all were loud iu their denuncia
tions of governmental actions, thev with
equal ardor praised Prince Nuwaroff, the
governor general of the St. Petersburg prov
ince. He greatly Improved the condition of
the various prisons under his jurisdiction and
granted the prisoners (especially political)
many privileges. No complain; from a pris
oner went unheeded by him, and he was the
means of li Iterating a numtier of persons un
justly incarcerated. If the empire possessed
more officials like Prince Suwaroff tuere
would lie less suffering throughout the land.
For Ave days I languished in that gloomy
forwarding prison, the time was after all not
ill spent, for I became acquainted with a
phase of prison life which I had not before
seen. At the expiration of that time a party
was formed, and we were ordered to tale
the first step toward our different destina
tions. This step consisted in our scrambling
into a boxlike wagon, painted black, and
which had lieen christened the "Black Ma
ria,'' possibly from the number of darkened
lives it had transported to various places.
Just us I was almut entering, an aide-of-camp
of Prince Suwaroff appeared and handed me
a letter to the governor of the TambofT prov
ince. I then for the first time learned my
destination. We were packed Into tbe Black
Murla like to many sheep being carried to
The front seat. In addition to the driver,
contained two gendarmes, while fifty Cos
sacks surrounded tbe wagon In this man
ner, after a nnstt uncomfortable ride of seven
rnlli-s, we fuelled the railway station. We
were driven through the Northern Palmyra,
but not a scrap of tbe city was our longing
eyas permitted to view, for the conveyance
was light's! from the rear by one small win
dow, which barely saved us from being en
veloped in total darkness. At the station
officials were there to receive us an I conduct

settling a Duel.
An uinu-uig story used to be told of a wag
who accepted a challenge to fight a duel. Ou
the apKiiiiti .1 day be sent word to bis oppo
nent to chalk on a board an outline of his
(the challenged party's) figure, and if the
challetiget i .t it he would consider himself
wounded or dead, as the case might be.
This story may possibly have originated
from one told in the "History of Hartford,
Vt ." of Consider Bardwoll, an irascible inn
keeper of t hat town.
He wus often at variance with his neigh
bors, and once be and a guest, having quar
reled, agreed to fight a duel. At the ap
tsiiuted hour the adversary appeared, armed
w it li a shotgun Burtlwell lovud a joke, and,
