Russia has been one of the Mast}
countries in Europe to discard me-
dieval traditions, manners and cos-
tumes. This is due to the slight in-
flux of western ideas, and the in-
fluence of the late Orthodox church.
The mass of population is still
steeped in superstition, which is
stronger and more generally believed
than the teachings of the Christian
religion. It is taught by the mothers
to s-mal children, so that by the
'time they become adults it is part of
their life.
The lower classes are very rough,
and live, in many cases, little better
than animals. In the winter time a
large family live in one. small hut.
The building is bare of furniture ex-
cept for a rude table and a few
benches. The stove is the important
piece, for it serves as furnace, cook-
ing place, table, and even bed. One

same type as that known in this
country, but, is ahuge brick affair that

it as a single, family bed. Oftentimes
there is a loft which is on the other
side of. the room. Here the children
sleep in the summer tim'e, and here,
the scanty food is stored for the
winter. After the .children are in bed
for the night the wife and, mother
bring in the live-stock for the night.
The women are the only busy ones
and they never rest. Besides all the
duties of the liouse-holi, and the
strenuous duties of mothlerhood, tie
wyomen have to work in the fiels. In
