QUAINT FOLK ON THE PLAINS
Russo-Qcnnan Celonie3 in Kansas.
Within the past five or six years
there have been moving across the
Mississippi, forming new settle
ments on the western plains, nu
merous small colonies of German
peasants from Russia. These peo
ple, in their ways of living, in
dress and uiunncra and character,
are so different from any immi
grants to he seen in the eastern
states that a view of them is anew
and positive point in tho always
changing panorama of American
life. About one huudrf-d 3'cari
ago the Empress Catherine! collect
ed these people irotn various parts
of Germany and settled them in
small farming colonies in tli'J 10
gion of the Volga. In building
their Russian homes they followed
the nucleus plan common among
the small farmers of Europe, clus
tering their houses olooly in little
towns, each with its church and
school, and its common pasture.
The plough lands stretched out for
miles from the town, divided into
parcels of various sizes among tho
farmers. By thu arrangement,
much time and labor are lost in
going to and from the tillage
Sometimes a farmer has to haul
his harvest fortv miles to his barns I
and store-houses, which are all in!
the town beside the houses. In
return thev have a more social life I
than would be possible if the
houses were isolated. They prefer
the life of the bee, reporting daily
to a populous hive, to that of the
solitary hawk, which cares only for
its own nest. Their common pa6-1
ture, to which one herd boy daily
drives tho gathered cattle of the
whole colony, is a saving of labor
and of fencing, which offsets in
part the loss from the dis
tance of tillage. Among the in
ducements to settle in Russia, the
colonists were exempted from army
service for a period of years which
is just now expiring, and the same
period limits their freedom of emi
gration. It is on this account thit
they have left their homes in such
large numbers, and, since their ob
ject was to escape the draft, it is
natural that thev should seek their
new fortunes in America. Here,
in Kansas and Minnesota, and per
haps in other states and territories,

colonies. Tho homestead laws
have so far changed their way of
living as to compel them to build
houses on their separate farms, but
they carry out the old plan by
making town houses also, gathered
in closo neighborhood about tho
church. These are their winter
homes and their resorts on
Sundays and their many holidays,
and while the able-bodied men
and women and larger children are
busy on the fauns, the grand
mothers keep houso in town for
tho very old men and the young
There arc doubtless many mark
ed points of difference between
the several colonies of German
Russians, for they went to Russia
from different parts of Germany,
forming separate colonies of Cath
olics, ilennonites and Lutherans.
The Colonies in Ellis county,
Kansas, are Catholic. The largest
of these is Herzog, standing less
than a mile from the Victoria
station of the Kansas Pacific Rail
road. The town, conspicuous on
tho brown and treeless prairie,
gives at a little distance a general
tint of creamy white, monotonous,
but not unpleasant. This is tho
color alike of the' few stono build
ings and of tho fifty or sixty sod
houses and pens' and stables ap
pendant. The sod houses arc of
one story, long and low, smeared
with clay and plastered without
and within. The fe.w stone houses
are made of the beautiful light
colored limestone, abundant in
this region, and some of them
show curious carving of window
caps and other simple decoration.
Hero and there a frame house
stands high above its neighbors,
boasting its superiority by a finely
perforated and scolloped cornice,
suiritestive of bodkin and the rich
edgings of petticoats. The village
store is brilliant with painted dec
oration, strange in color r.nd form.
A neat stone- ehurch, witii a good
house for the priest adjoining,
stands in the center, and is undis
puted head of tin- townindeed
its chief excuse lor existence. A
curious fashion of fencing with a
soil of basket work, woven of
thick saplings, adds to the foreign
look of the place. Two or three
welis supply all the houses, and
the constant carrying of water
helps to keep up the ,ocial ele
ment even in thu most quiet times.
A stranger walking into Ilerog on
a Sunday, when all are on hand
for church and dressed in their
brightest colors, would be staitled
by the ancient lcok of things.
Men and uonten, gi'U and hoys,
all seem to have dropped out of
some former century
and irirls and smali children shine i
in striking combinations of red
and blue and creen, giotvn bnvs
wear loose blouses of black or 1
bine, and their fathers are solemn-igood
Iy respectable in black frock coats,
which, from wait up, fit tight as a
bodice, the long skirts gathered at
the belt and hanging loose and
mimic. The caps of the men and I
boys are all alike, bicad at the top, J
gathercd to a band, and with a
visor. Tho hair is brushed back
straight over the head and cutoff
with one mercilci-s chop on a level
with the middle of the e.us. The
girls and women cover their heads
closely with keichiofc, vaiung in
color, but usually brilliant with
red. The faces of the men, es
pecially when observed in church,
have a strangely ancient look of
superstitious solemnity, which I
have seen only in old German or
Flemish pictures. It is likely that
the sojouiu in Russia, where they
live in iolalian from the advance the delight of bo.lK fore-. '-Fran, I to itiluee hUpiv.-ent stock he will ..-rei , s:ti:sV.eti...i. Il.ixiit,' been teste.l by

soek the scanty growth of stunted
wood along the creeks. His flic
is of the waste pioducts of tlle I
farm, and is of two forts. The j
first and best is the dried dung of!
cattlo and bnihilo, p;at!ieicd from j
the pTairio hy industriutis girls,
who go about like rag-pickers
with sacks on their backs', carrying
homo their loads to heap the
growing store. This is a labor
always ready, si sort of out-door
knitting work, for dayo when farm
labor is slack. The other cheap
fuel is refuse s.traw and tough
stems nf hay, rejected by the
cattle, dry cornstalks atid what
ever rubbiih gathers lrom tho
year's farming. Even with this
light material the small tight
houses are abundantly warmed by
their clay ovens. It makes more
work in feeding the fire, but boys
and girls are plenty and old
women abound. Tho houses are
kept neat and well scrubbed,
though the same cannot be said of
the persons of their owner". The
chief article of food is wheat
bread, made generally of interior j a
flour, the best whe.it being sold
and the woi st kept' for home use.
But the distinctive point in their
diet is the great tt-e which the
Russians make of the watermelon.
This- abundant product of the
plains, "thriving when com wilts
and potatoes fade away, a luscious
refreshment to the thirsty hacB'er
or cowboy, is to the Russians "a
