The common notion of Siberia is based on latitude and climate. Because part of it is la the nrctic circle the whole vast region 1ms beon ns- samed to be almost beyond the pale of civilized occupancy. Notwithstanding that much has been written describing Siberia as It is, the common notion Is still that it is fit only for penal eettle- nenta and that the nihilists and other political eiJles were sent to these settlements as a living death. This Is not far from the truth. But the inhosptt- nWe regions fn which the penal settlements were placed arc fur from being all Siberia, and even some of these districts are capable of sustaining the vigorous inhabitants of northern cli- caatea. Siberia, in the economic sense, has all the resources which go to make n vast stretch of territory self-sustaining os nn independent nation. It has forests, mines and great agricultural regions where every product of the temperate climate Is capable of cuktra- tion. The timber Is In the north nnd west. Tbe mines- are In TsTtlely scattered districts. Reflectiona. His face would hav« stopped a clock. But bow can one wonder at it when one learns that he was a wandering lecturer?
