Tho other Is the adaptation of Private Jones, who being nn American youth was probably a somewhat aggressive ndlvldualist at start, to fit him into a military mechanism.

All these events wrought terribly upon the constitution of thu Czirlna, In whom neurosis, if such it uas, had already broken out. The general strain was more than she could bear, but tho particular trouble that Is supposed to have unbalanced her was the national anxiety for an heir to the throne, which anxiety sho humanly shared, and the four disappointments of high hures tn tho births of daughters. The Russian populace was never sympathetic with the alien Empress, who, on her side, however social ser vice may have lntrrebted her, was en tirely ungifted for winning popular affection. By the time of the birth of the fourth Grand Duchess.
