AltVKSTINQ In Russia Is one
of the great events In the peas-
ant's life. Weeks before the
corn Is ripe enough for cutting
the bullllT goes around the villages on
tlio estate and collects the extra hands
needed for the work. Heaping ma-
chine nre now used all over the coun-
try but ns there are many small woods
and clumps of trees Interspersed
among wiientficlds in the South one
often sees women with sickles finish-
ing off (lldlcult corners says u writer
In Country Life. They make u pretty
picture In their bright dresses against
the high golden wheat with the dark
woods in the background.
Women predominate In agricultural
life In ltussla and nre great workers.
Their babies are kept In the village
creches and looked after by others
till the mothers return at night. Some-
times (he mothers take them In thu
fields. The women usually begin work
ubout fi a. in. anil go on till twelve
o'clock without a stop when tho mid-
day meal Is served. This Is taken sit-
ting on the ground. It generally con-
sists of thick potato sou)) or perhaps
borstock (soup made with beetroots)
"caslm" (a brown grain boiled In the
same way as rice) n law herring
nnd n huge piece of black bread. IZuch
peasant carries her own wooden spoon
In her pocket or tucked away In onu of
her high boots.
Water Is served from a barrel which
goes from field to llel'd drawn by n
doukey. The oxen are magnificent
creatures and It Is nothing exceptional
to sco between thirty and forty pairs
of them nt work the same day. Horses
aro rarely used In the fields.
Between 4 p. in. and (i p. m. an en-
ormous samovar (a special kind of urn
heated by charcoal) Is brought out
nod boiling weak tea with two lumps
of sugar at least is served to the work-
ers In tin mugs. The men of course
used to drink vodka but now It Is
stopped nnd happily so for It Is Just
about the strongest drink that exists.
The ten hour being only u short re-
spite work Is resumed with vigor and
continued up till six or nine o'clock
according to the weather. IJut ex-
cept for u terrific tliundictonn occa-
sionally it rarely rains nt this time.
Fond of Fresh Fish.
Supper consists of practically tho
snme menu ns that which Is eaten at
midday baked or boiled potatoes being
generally substituted for tlio "casha"
and sometimes pond carp crayfish and
perch fried. All the meals nre cooked
outside. An oven and fireplaces inada
of clay nnd bricks are built In a sort
of trench In a central spot and here
)ou see only men cooking.
Fresh-water fish form a very Impor-
tant addition to the food supply In In-
land ltussla. As there lire hundreds
of miles of marshy ground great ponds
nro made everywhere. The chief fish
stocked are carp tench nnd cruyfish
The streams nnd rivers give excellent
trout hut crny-fishlng also affords good
sport us well as being n considerable
industry. A dark night Is chosen If
possible since In the moonlight the fish
are easily scared and retire to the mid-
jle of the pond where It Is Impossible
to catch them. The fishers are armed
with strong nets about the size of a
washing basin but deeper nnd weight-
ed which nre attached to long poles
ppronchlng tho pond ns i-aullously as
possible the nets are dropped In urn)
allowed to sink to the bottom. Then
everyone sits and waits In silence but
smoking furiously to keep away the
mosquitoes which nro both large and
venomous. Then men appear on tho
scene suddenly flourishing large
torches over the surface of tho water
nnd tlto crayfish retreating wall: Into
tho nets whleh liuve to lw cleared und

and on one side you see tlfo chaff and
stiaw coming out nnd on the other the
wheat dropping right Into the saclts
awaiting It below. These again are
tied up by the men. I watched the
grain being separated from the chaff
for -10 minutes and during that tlao
11 big sacks were tied up labeled and
ready to put away In the granary.
While this is going on hundreds of
black and gray crow (the real Bus-
shut crow) come 11 Ing around to pick
up what wheat they con and In some
parts the ground Is Just a pnteli of
black and looks most strange.
The only Itusslau crow I havo seen
In captivity was a miserable specimen
In Dresden. They are much more sin-
ister looking than their British broth-
ers nnd even their "cuw" Is different
Their behavior In the wheatlleld Is ex-
tremely entertaining. The old blrdl
hop about uttering weird llttlu noise?
and gingerly picking up grains of
wheat with which they feed their prac-
tically full-grown offspring. If the
young bird has had enough It drops the
grain In front of another crow. which
generally snaps nt It promptly.
The peasants receive pay according
to the proprietor's wealth or generos-
ity sometimes Wl kopeks u day
(2fi cents) at other times one rouble
(lit) cents) ; but this varies greatly as
some estates are so much richer than
others. In nil nnd every case how-

Sundays and feast days (and thnrc

music and to the time of the balalaika
(a kind of mandolin nnd the con-
certina they will sing and dance nt any
moment of tho day. Many of the peas-
ants aro much richer than tiey lock
and they still put their money In their
stockings and bury It ns of old.
But to return to the hnrvest. To-
wards sunset when work is at Its high-
est pitch In tho vicinity of tlio thresh-
ing machine (which by tho way thu
peasants greatly reverence as It mentis
food to them In tlio coming year) Ufa
is Indeed worth living. Tho throbbing
of the engines the buzz of many voices
the lowing of the cattle tho glorious
Hiinsut nnd nbove nil that lovely gold-
en haze (caused by thu dilst of the
chaff) which rises ever so lightly and
which seems to put u veil over every-
thing Just makes you long for your
brush and palette.
But tho wheat cut threshed and
housed the machine must bo put nwny
till next year. This is quite a cere-
mony nnd ul ways takes place In the
moonlight. First It Is thoroughly over-
hauled and cleaned then decorated
with flowers small sheaves and
brunches of trees. Between twelve
and twenty pairs of oxen draw .the
machine moving ns slowly as possible.
AH those who havo taken part In the
harvest work walk beside und behind
It generally between one hundred and
two hundred. Behind theso come the
villagers everyone dressed 111 his best

huge cavalcade moves at foot pneo un-
