There Is an air so popular lu Ruwsla that It Is even more familiar than their uutlomil anthom to tlio people of that great, mysterious empire. I have heart] It In all parts of thu czar's dominions from the Baltic sea to Bering strait and from Archangel to the Caspian. In the glittering puliiccs of Petersburg and In foul prison dens of Siberia. It is a Himple melody In the minor key, suggestive, like most Slav music, of sorrow and unrest, and It Is culled "Matushka (or Mother) Volga," as for some cryptic reason every Russian, bo he noble or nihilist, Is taught from childhood to regard this great river In the light of a maternal relative. Yet the river io full of sad associations, for. convicts formerly traveled a portion of the journey to Siberia along its broad, sluggish stream. • I. .-can -never forget the haunting sweetness of "Matushka Volga" as I heard It sung on a prison barge ono quiet summer evening by a party of fettered politicals banished to the grout lono land of exile, for "Mother Volga" was their last link with homo and the loved ones they might never meet again. Fortunately the condemned arc now sent Into Asia by Iho Transslborlun rnllw'ay, and the unhappy exile Is spared at least one bltlcr parting—that from his well beloved "Mother Volga." —Travel Magazine. 1 For S;t|e A1 Jersey, \'i<-t-.\i.
