of Moscow, the majority of the
Kinder worshipers were men
and women who belonged to the "gen

girl was supporting on her arm an old
woman. The girl's face was pale but
nullum with n spiritual adoration. Her
lnn- blue eyes were fixed upon apace;
her lips were slightly parted. Not far

pillar stood atntuellke with hla ayes

but his eyes shone with adoration of
tilings not altogether spiritual.
