N the threshold of his eightieth
birthday Count Tolstoy, intel
lectual czar of all the Russians,
aristocrat, peasant, philosopher,
reformer, agitator, humanitarian, liter
ary genius and lover of everything that
lives, launched one of his daring, au
dacious philippics against the czar be
cause the death sentence was being in
flicted upon so many Russians and an
other because people who distributed
'and read his books were being arrest
ed, tormented and ruined. The first
philippic was inspired by a report that
twelve peasants had been hanged for
jBtn attack with intent to rob on a land
ed proprietor's estate. With the strokes
|of a master Tolstoy painted a graphic
iword picture of the executions "care
fully arranged and planned by learned
and enlightened people of the upper
class," denounced the secretary of the
court, the premier and the czar as "in
direct participators in the iniquities
perpetrated every day and appealed
to them to cease their bloody work for
the sake of their souls and for the God
who lived within them. The will that
sent them into the world, he declared,
desired only one thing from them—
love from man to man.
Love of Man For Man.
"But what are you doing? To what
are you devoting your spiritual
strength?" he asked. "Whom do you
love? Wh loves you? Your wife?
Your child? But that is not love. The
love of wife and children is not human

more strongly. Human love is the love
of man for man—for every man as a
son of God and therefore a brother.
Whom do you love in that way? No
one. Who loves you in that way? No
one. You are feared as the hangman
or a wild animal is feared, all of you,
from the lowest to the highest accom
plices in murder."
In his second philippic Tolstoy de
clared that tormenting the distributers
of his writings, "^virile I, the chief
cause not only of the distribution but
even of the existence of these books,
am left in peace," was not only "re
voltingly unjust, but also amazingly
stupid." The Russian subject, he said,
had been forced to obey his czar before
"An illiterate peasant," declared Tol
stoy, "may get drunk, roll in the mud,
use bad language, fight, break a com
rade's jaw, beat his wife and steal a
horse, but I cannot imagine a peasant
tin the whole of Russia who either
when sober or even when drunk
would venture to say that a man ought
to be punished for circulating a book
which says that working people can
only arrange their life well when they

ments—to kill no one, not to quarrel

or czar commands anything that God
forbids one must obey not police of

yet it .stands written down, sealed and
signed by a senator, that the man who
spreads such thoughts must be pun
ished, and this is headed by an an
nouncement that all this is done in
Russia in 1908 by his imperial majes

Dormant Genius Awakens.
A descendant of Count Peter Tolstoy,
who was a friend and comrade of
Peter the Great, Count Lyov, or Leo
Tolstoy, was born at Yasnia Polyana
on Aug. 28, 1828. At an early age he
was left an orphan, but he received a
good education, as do all Russian no
bles, being placed under private tutors
and afterward attending the university
at Kazan. pursued his studies and
traveled widely until 1851, when he
entered the army and went on an ex
pedition to Caucasus.
Early in youth Tolstoy had been
thrown in contact with the gay mili
tary life of Moscow, and when he ex
changed that life for that of the uni
versity it meant, to a large extent, only
a continuation of riotous living. Bu
of a sudden the nobler passion in him
began to stir. The dormant genius
ibegan to waken and to look what hour
it was on the clock of self emancipat
ing humanity. Tolstoy the man be-
gan his great life struggle with Tolstoy
the Russian. He grew ashamed of his
life of dissipation and, tearing himself
from his carousals with his profligate
companions, fled, a year before his
graduation, to his country estates,
there to exchange the books of the uni
versity for the implements of the field,
the ^prospective life of a lawyer for
that of a farmer. Five years he spent
on his ancestral estates, living partly
the life of a student, partly the
life of a master of peasant slaves
and partly as a dreamer of beautiful
dre.ims of their emancipation. was
aroused from these dreams by the na
tion's call to arms. On the breaking
out of the Crimean war he was sent to
Sebastopol, there taking command of a
mountain battery and assisting in the
defense of the citadel. At the close of
the war in 1836 he resigned his com
mission and devoted himself to the lit
erary career which was to make him

surprised as anybody at this instan

fields of war he had hastened to S

author of the day he was welcomed

His writings represent two periods ol

••Boyhood," "Youth," "The Cossacks,"
"Sevastopol Sketches," "Family Hap

His tales published during the Crimean
war caused Emperor Alexander II. to
order the general under whom Tolstoy
served to take care of the author and
not to expose his life to any danger.
The stories named above belong to Tol
stoy's first literary period. To the sec

Believe," "The Kreutzer Sonata" and
pther religious, philosophical and socio
The Tolstoy cult, developed since
lhat day when the Tartar was trans
formed into the philosopher, astonish
ed the world. That part of it which
ueals with the relations of state and
individual is not very different from
widely held Socialist views in many
parts of the world, that which deals
with the church is repugnant to the
orthodox—it led to his excommunica
tion by the Greek church several years
Igo—and that which deals with the
tender passion is at variance with the
conventional view. I was the treat
ment of this last phase of the cult in
"The Kreutzer Sonata" that made the
novel the sensation of two continents.
In his efforts to follow the example of
Christ, Tolstoy refused to accept pay
for his literary work and on his copy
rights and endeavored to give away
his personal property and his estate,
covering 2,500 acres, but in these moves
he was frustrated by his wife, who
declared that she and the thirteen
children she had borne him should not
be impoverished. This and other
phases of the Tolstoy cult are so un
conventional and impractical that foi
years past many Russians have be
lieved he was crazy. In an article en
titled "The Tragedy of Tolstoy" So
phie Witte, sister of Count Witte,
made this significant statement: "The
number of tragic, unnatural deaths and
suicides, and especially the number of
people who have become insane, in this
aristocratic family, has been astonish
Though prevented from giving away
his property, Tolstoy adopted a very
simply and frugal method of living
and wore the rough clothing of the
Russian peasant. Once he appealed to
a peasant audience by reading "The
Power of Darkness" before his ten
ants. To his intense chagrin the peas
ants roared with laughter at the most
pathetic points in his story. But this
incident did not dim his interest in
the lowly moujiks. Early and late he
championed their rights and denounced
their wrongs under the czar's despotic
Cupid as the Devil.
A writer who visited Tolstoy not long
ago thus described him: "Tolstoy
reads, writes and receives his friends
'in his bedroom. His couch is quite de
void of mattress, sheets or pillows.
'Near the couch there always is an as
sortment of shoemaker's materials,
with which he works when not toiling
in the field or devoting himself to writ
ing. arises at 5 o'clock in the
morning and goes to bed early at night.
His meals are of the simplest food and
no meat. defends the opinion that
man has no right to kill and consume
a living organism.
"Temperance finds in the great nov
elist an enthusiastic supporter. nei
ther drinks nor smokes, and he in
cludes in the term many other indul
gences that the ordinary advocates of
temperance consider apart from their
creed. To him romantic love also is
intemperance. The tender passion that
from all time has been the theme of
the poet and novelist Tolstoy deems a
species of moral depravity. Cupid is
the devil in his most awful guise. Mat
rimony brought about by romantic love
he holds to be an unholy alliance. Men
and women should love each other as
friends or brothers and sisters.
"In the matter of land ownership
Tolstoy admires the theories of the late
Henry George. considered George
the greatest American citizen of his
time. Tolstoy, however, believes in a
system of communal rather than na
tional ownership. The ideal state of
society, according to his theory, is the
simple rural communes, in which every
family would have the right to till soil
enough for its own support. Govern
ments he regards as the root of all evil.
Tax collectors he considers highway
men. looks forward to a day
when men will no longer consent to
be robbed of money nor be instructed
in the art of murdering one another in
"The accumulation of vast posses
sions by individuals the count regards
as one of the great evils. His thought
has been that the mission of a few
great American millionaires would be
to hasten the climax. does not
think, however, that the equalization
of property will be brought about by
violence, but by a general moral awak
ening. The great millionaires, he ex
pects, will become convinced that they
ihave no right to the property they now
regard as their own and will give it
up, just as he would now be willing to
move off the family estate at Yasnia
Polyana. America, he thinks, will set
the example. England will follow,
