ST. PETERSBURG. Russia. My Dear j
Groceryowskl: "Well, sir, I 'spose
you -will be surprised to hear from i
xae In Russia, but there -was no use talk
ing -when Dad said he was going to St. ;
Petersburg- if It was the last act o his
llle. He got talking with a Japaneser
in Rome and the Jap said the war in the
Far East would last until every Russian
Tras- killed, unless America interfered to
put a stop to It, and as Roosevelt didn't
appear to have sand enough to offer his
services to the Gear, what it needed was
for some representative American citi
zen who was brave and had nerve to go
to Bt. Petersburg and see the Czarevitch
and give him the benefit of a good Ameri
can talk. The Jap said the American
who brought about peace, by a few well
chosen -remarks, would be the greatest
man of the century, and would live to be
bowed down to by kings and emperors
and all the world would doff hats to him.
At first dad was a little leary about
going on such a mission without creden
tials from Washington, but as luck would
have it he met an exiled Russian at a
restaurant, who told dad that he re
minded him of General Grant, because
dad had a wart on the side of his noss.
and he told dad that Russia would keep
on fighting until every Japanese was
killed unless some distinguished American
should bo raised up who deemed It his
duty to go to St. Petersburg and see the
Little Father, and in the Interest of hu
manity advise the Czar to call a halt be
fore he had exterminated the whole yel
low race. Dad asked the Russian if he
thought the Czar would grant an audience
to an American of eminence in his own
country, and the Russian told dad that
Nicholas Just doted on Americans, and
that there was hardly ever an American
"ballet dancer that went to Russia but
"what the Czar sent for her to come and
see him and dance before the Grand
Dukes, and he always gave them Jewels
and cans of caviar as souvenirs of their
Dad thought it over all night, and the
next morning wo started for Russia, and
I wish we had joined an expedition to
discover the north pole instead of coming
here. Say. it is harder to get into Russia
than it would be to get out of a peniten
tiary at home. At the frontier we wore
met by guards on horseback and on foot,
policemen, detectives and other grafters,
who took our passports and money, and
one fellow made me exchange, my socks
with him. Then they imprisoned us in a
stable with some cows until they could
hold a coroner's Inquest on our passports
and divide our money. "We slept with the
cows the first night In Russia, and I do
not "want to sleep again with animals
that chew cuds all night and get up half
a dozen times to hump up their backs
and stretch and bellow. We never slept
a wink, and could look out through the
cracks in the stable and see the guards
shaklns: dice for our money.
Finally they looked at the great seal
on our passports and Baw it was an
American document, and they began to
turn pale, as pale as a RusBian can get
without using soap and when I said
"Washington. Ambassador, Minister Ple
nipotentiary, Roosevelt. Hot Time in the
Old Town Tonight, E Pluribus Unura,
whoople, San Juan Hill." and pointed to
dad. who was just coming out qi me
stable, looking like Washington at Valley
Forge, the guards and other robbers
bowed to dad, gave ,hlm a bag full of
Russian money in -place of that which
they had taken away, and let us trfke a
freight train lor St- Petersburg, and they
must have told the trainmen who wo
were, because everybody on the cars took
oft their hats to us and divided their
lunch with us.
Dad could not understand the change la
the attitude of the people toward us -until
3 told him that they took him for a dis
tinguished American statesman, and that
as long as we were in Russia ho must
try to look like George Washington and
act like Theodore Roosevelt, so every
little while dad would stand up In the
aisle of the car and pose like George
Washington and when anybody gave him
a sandwich or a cigarette he should show
his teeth and say "Dee-lighted," and all
the way to St. Petersburg dad carried
out his part pf the programme, and we
were not robbed once on the trip, but dad
tried to smoke one of the cigarettes that
was given him by a Cossack and he died
In my arms, pretty near.
They make cigarettes out of baled hay

ered with paper that has been used to

bad since they fumigated our house by
the board of health after the hired girl
Well, we got to St Petersburg In an
awful time, and went to a hotel, sus
pected by the police, and marked as un
desirable guests by the Cossacks, and
winked at toy the walking delegates and
strikers, who thought we were non-union
mm looking for their Joba
The next day the religious ceremony
of "blessing the Neva" took place, whore
n1! the population gets out on the bank
of the rtver. with overshoes on, and fur
csats. and looks down on the rivor. cov
ered with ico four feet thick, and the
river Is blessed. In our country the
people would damn a rivor that had
ice four feet thick, but In Russia they

with about a million people who had
sheepskin coats on, and who steamed Uko
r sheep ranch, and were enjoying the per
formance, looking occasionally at the
Winter Palace, where the Czar was peek'
lng out of a window, wondering from
which direction, a bomb would come to
blow him up. When a battery of artillery
across the river started to fire a salute.
and then the devil was to pay. It seems
that the gentlemen who handled the guns.
and who were supposed to flro blank
cartridges into the air, put in loaded
cartridges, filled with grape shot, and
took aim at the Wfntcr Palace, and cut
loose at Mr. Czar.
Well, you would have been paralyzed
to efi the change that came over that
crowd blessing the river one minute and
damning the Czar and the Grand Dukes
the next. The shot went into the Winter
Palace and tore the furniture and ripped
up the celling of the room the Czar
was r. and in a moment all was chaos,
as though every Russian knewtho Czar
was f be assassinated at that particular
moment, and all rushed toward the Win
ter Palace as though they expected pieces
of the Lattlo Father would be thrown
out the windows for thom to play foot
ba'l with. For a people who are sup
posed to be lawful and law-abiding, and
who love their rulers, it seemed strange
o seo them all so tickled when they
thought he was blown higher than a kite
hv Ms own soldiers.
Dad and I started with the crowd for
t-f Winter Palace, and then to had
taste of monarchical government. The
crowd was rushing over us and dad got
mad and pulled off his coat and said
he could whip any confounded foreigner
that rubbed against him with a sheep
skin coat on. and he was just on the
point of smiting a follow with whiskers
that looked like scrambled bristles off
black hog. when a regiment of Cossacks
-amo down on the crowd, riding horses
like e Wild West show, and with whips
in their hands, with a dozen lashos to
itach whip, and they began to lash the
crowd and ride over them, while the
peoplo covered their faces with their
mrms, and run away, afraid of the whljfcc,
which cut and wound and kill, as each
lash has little lead bullets fastened to
them and a stroke of the whip is like
being shot with buckshot orkicked with
a frozen, boot.
Well, sir. dad was going to show the
Cossacks that he was pretty near an
American citizen, and didn't propose to
be whipped like a schoolboy by a teacher
that looked like a -valentine, so he tried
to look like George Washington defying
the British, but it didn't work, for a Cos
sack rode right up to him and lashed
him over the back (and about 15 buckshot
in his whip took dad right where the
pants are tight when you bend over to
pick up something), and the Cossack
laughed when dad straightened up and
started to run.
I never saw such a change in a man
as there was- in dad. He started for
our hotel, and as good a sprinter as
I am I couldn't keep up with him, but I
kept him in sight. Before we got to the
hotel a sledge came along, not an "old
sledge," such as you play with cards,
high-low-Jack-game, but a sort of a
sleigh, with three horses abreast, and I
yelled to dad to take a hitch on the
sledge, and he grabbed on with his feet
on the runners, and a man in the sledge
with a uniform on, who seemed to be
a. Grand Duke, 'cause everybody was
chasing him and yelling to head him off,
hit dad in the nose with the butt of a re
volver, and dad fell off In the snow and

and when they left us the landlord noti

were at the hotel, and came there es
corted by the mob, and the police sur
rounded the house and dad went to our
room and used witch hazel on himself
where the Cossack hit him with the load
ed whip. He says Russia will pay pretty
dear for that stroke of the whip by the
Cossack, and I think dad is going to Join
the revolution that is going to be pulled

Colonel A. S. Prather. of Taney, former
member of the Legislature, enjoys tho
unique distinction of being the cham
pion "ringblower" of Missouri.
"Colonel Prather is an artist in smoke,
says an exchange.
"He blows wonderful rings, which re
volve as they soar, blows smaller ones
to the number of some half dozen, one
within another, each revolving. The
pleasure In a cigar, says he. is in watch
ing tho smoke, and through many years
of steady wooing of the goddess N Ico Una
ho has attained a skill that not only af
fords himself but others entertainment.
"One of the Colonel's favorite tricks is
to put one ring of smoke within another
on a table. For a moment they will He
there, when by a quick movement of his
hand ho generates a slight breeze which
lifts tho smoke in the shape of a cyclone
which goes floating off, a veritable
twister. Again, after blowing tho rings
to the table, another movement of the
hand turns the smoke into the shape of
tho flames of a prairie fire. These are
but a few'of the many tricks performed
by tho veteran, whp never tires of anuis
ing any one irom -senator to page wno
may admire his skill."
