There aro probably sevoral reasons **;

iJiit probably tho chief reason why the

Varrluifce by order ^vcre e..i ooDUnOtt,
ny= Li-ince Kropotkir, i'i The AtlanWo,
that among our servants, each time a
fouilf. couple foresaw U.it they might he
ordered to marry, although Ihey har! ns*
mutual Inclination tor eaoh other, thev
took the prwmotion of standing togetbet
ee godfather and godmother at the christening of a child In oue of tha peasaoS
families. ri"ids rendered marriage impossible, according to ltusslnn ohni-h law.
Tho stratagem was usually successful, !n,8
once It eridi-d In a drama. Andrei, tbe
tailor, fell ln love with a girl belonging
to one of onr neighbdM. He hoped thrtt
my father would permit hlm to go free,
ae a tailor, In exchange for a certain year-
��� _rpor"'��nt and that by working hard at
kU trade l>. oonld manage to Iny come
money aside and to buy freedom for th .
flrll otherwise, In marrying ono of my
father's serfs she would have become tbe
serf of ber husband's master. However,
as Andrei and one of tl.e maids of ont
household foresaw that thev might be or
der<��d to marry  they agreed to cults u
: godparents ln the christening of'a dhlld.
1 What they had feared happened.   One day
I they -wore called  to the master, and  ti_>
I dreaded order was-given.
! "We are always obedient to yenr will,'
tbey  replied,   "but a fewv\.-'_s ago we
I acted  as godfather and godmother at .
I christening."   Andrei also explained his
: -wishes and intentions.
Tho result was tl-.'it- he was sent to th*
recruiting board to boeoiuo a soldier,
Military service In thor-9 times was terrible.   It ro'iuired a man lo serve ii yon.
j nndor the colors, and the lifo of a soldier
was hard in tho extreme.  -Blows Irom the
- sergeant find tbeofilcors and flogging with
birch rods and with s'.ictis for the s-'l;.h,*
ist fault were the normal stare of affairs.
. The ornelty that was displayed surpaaawJ
all Imagination.
Thus Andre!  had now to fa-e   for ii
' years tbe terrible fate of a soldier. All
his schumea of happiness had come la t
Violent end.

Nowhere in the world is dairying
so successful and cows kept so

great deal of their success is attributed to these associations. It
has beeu estimated bv the Department of Agriculture of that country that the dairy output has been
increased about otte-hal since their
coming into operation.
There is no doubt, as it has been
