WHERE RICH MEN ARE FEW. Tliiy An as Scare as Black Swans In Bulgaria. Bulgaria Is the nearest approach to a peasant commonwealth which, the world has known In modern times. There Is not a Bulgarian Slav who is not the owner of a plot of land upon which be lives and ont of which he gets his own livelihood by b'.a own labor. Large landowners are almost un known. The few men of wealth In the country are mostly of foreign birth or descent, and even they would not be counted as wealthy according to the standard of other European coun tries. The small landowners, who form the vast majority of the population. ar i peasant born nnd peasant bred. Thoy i are extremely thrifty. They are cou- tent with very plain food. They wear the same sheepskin garments from i year to year, only turning their coats lnide out with the changes of the , season. ' I Whole families, even of well to do pensants. sleep In the same room upon mnts stror-hod out on the floor. They live under conditions of dirt nnd dIs- comfort which no British or (Herman or French laborer would tolerate for a wck. Yet. notwithstanding their disregard of the simplest sanitary ar- rangements, they grow up singularly I strong nnd healthy. ' Moreover, they are free from the Ir- rltatloti caused among other laborers, ovorwi rked If not underpaid, by the spectacle of neighbors living lu afflu ence and ease without any necessity fb curtail their expenditure. Rich men are Maclt swans In Bulgaria.
