' v "How Is it," one of the Russian interpreters was asked,-"that" al-' though these peasants cannot read ... and write they seem to be able to make accurate computations, and to master the intricacies of the Russian currency? They seem tb understand perfectly even the new bank notes in which those marked 100 rubles equal those put) out last year which were worth l,v00,000. "They appreciate the' value of stupidity," was the answer. "They( like, to appear simple, more simple than they are. It is partly, a pose with them, but it has its practical side, too. They appear guileless and manage to drive a good bargain because their very gulleless-ness allays the suspicion of the person with whom they are dealing. . "I hand them "a 1,000,000 ruble note. 'What is this,' they ask. J tell them thut it is a million. They accept it. But try handing them a 100,000 ruble note and say that It. is a million. They will shake their ; heads, xou may point out has aSmariy ciphers following the figure. They will not accept It. 'But, you persist, 'you cannot read, why do you-think I am lying to you?' 'But I have never seon that sort of a million before,' they answer and they will not take it. "You take a paper to a peasant to be signed. He looks at it and usks what it Is all about. You read It to him. He nods but protests that he cannot write. 'Let someone else write my name on it,' he says and later he may repudiate the agreement, saying that he never signed it and did not even know what it contained. "I believe that many of them who can both read and write are careful to conceal that knowledge, believing that it will be to their advantage to do so. They are not so - stupid- ftsthy-ipar." .v., I tf you see it in The TRIBtfJS ieil them so.
