Rumanian Girl Coming From Market
By JOHN OLIVER LA GORCE.
With unsettled Russia Just over her
border, and the border Itself In dis
pute, Rumania Is conducting a watch
on the Dniester, the boundary which
she claims, as vigilant ns any that was
over set oa the Rhine. Rumnnla has
organized her government In Bess
arabia, but the Russians have never
consented to the severance of this for
mer Russlnn province, and ench move
ment of soviet troops toward the
Dniester hns set Kurope aflutter l'or
fear a new war will break out In her
However, It Is not Bessarabia nor
the other war-gained territories thnt
have doubled Rumania's size, that arc
In the mind of the average person
when Rumania Is mentioned. He
thinks rather of the pre-war nucleus,
the little kingdom that since the Turk
was pushed south, has stood enfolded
by the lower Danube, the River I'ruth
mid the Trnnsylvanlau Alps.
In the whirlpool of racial rivalries
of southeastern Europe where Ro
innn and Goth, Hun and Slav, Magyar
and Mongol, with all of their descend
ant peoples, have run over one anoth
er and been run over In their turn
fate left the Rumanians In the major
ity In a territory of more than 1)0,000
square miles. It scattered more than
I'J.OOO.OOO of them over these lands
more than 7,000,000 In old Rumanln
and some fi.OOO.OOO elsewhere.
The old Rumnnla was a country of
.r3,000 square miles, with a population
of less than 8,000,000. It was thus
slightly larger than Pennsylvania, al
though It had half a million fewer
people than the Keystone state. The
new Rumanln hns an urea of 1:22,000
square miles und a population of
Tho country Is governed by a king,
who Is n constitutional monarch, and
a parliament made up of a senate and
a chamber of deputies. Thu pre-war
constitution was rather reactionary,
with the masses practically disfran
chised. Q'he new constitution, how
ever, Is more liberal, permitting vollng
by all citizens over HI years of age,
Small Farms and Dig Estates.
Industrially Rumania Is almost en
tirely given over to ngrlcuJ ure, and,
area for area, It produces more ceronln
than any other great grain-producing
nation In the world. Before the World
war Its farm lands were about equally
divided between the small farmer and
rich land-owner. There were about a
million farms with nn average size of
eight acres, and then there were over
1,000 estates with an nverngo size of
2,200 acres. Since the conclusion of
the World war steps have been taken
to break up many of these large es
tates and to crente n body of pensnnt
The result of the occurrence of both
huge estates aud tiny farms Is thnt
one finds tho strnngest contrasts In
farming methods. Here Is a big cstato
where every sort of farm machinery
thnt the United Stntes has to offer Is
to be found the binder, the mower,
the stenm gang plow, tho riding culti
vator, the manure sprender and even
the steam header and thresher. And
then hard by are a hundred Binnlb
farmers who still hnrvest their grain
with tho sickle, thresh It with the flail,
or tread It out with oxen and winnow
It with tho home-mado fork. They
mow their grass with tho scythe, rako
It with tho hand rako and haul It In
with ox-carts. But even with tho very
primitive methods that characterize
half of tho farming of tho country,
they manage to coax n rather bounti
ful crop out of tho soli,
Tho great bulk of Rumania's popula
tion belongs to the pensnnt class, for
there are comparatlcly few cities aud
most of them ure sinull. Many of tho
ucuMint families havo lived for genera
tions on the great cRtates, farming for
the absentee landlords.
An Interesting class the Rumaulnn
pensnnts form, with their peculiar cus
toms, their (striking superstitions, their
primitive ways of looking n't things In
No Race Suicide Here.
Q'he evil of race suicide has never
Invaded rural Rumanln. It Is regnrded
as worthy of honor to be the head of
a numerous family. As In nil hinds
where many of the people are more or
less Illiterate, there Is a high death
rate, though the fact that the bottle
fed baby is almost unknown In pensant
Rumanln tends to overcome the high
Infant mortality that would otherwise
"Many hands mnke light work" Is n
proverb of the Rumanian peasant, of
ten put Into practice. Almost every
night there Is n neighborhood gather
ing like the old-fashioned apple-cutting
or apjvle-butter boiling In enrly Amer
ican rural history.
One-third of the area of the country
toward the north nnd west Is Inhabited
by seinl-clvlllzed shepherds. Up In the
Carpathians In summer und down In
the sheltered valleys In winter they
lead their Hocks, sleeping In the opeu
with them und despising any other
shelter than that which primitive na
ture nnd the starry sky afford. They
seldom speak; indeed, their solitary
lives leave them little opportunity for
But If there Is primitive simplicity
In Rumanian pensant life, there Is ul
tra formality In the polite circles of
Bucharest, the national capital. "The
Pari of the East" Its Inhabitants
proudly call their city, and In the char
acter of Its architecture, the ways of
Its people, the prices In force at Its
hotels, It Justly deserves the title It
has vauntlngly assumed.
Bucharest a Lively City.
This nenr-eastern metropolis Is
about equal In size to our own na
tional capltaJ, and yet it has twenty
times ns many restaurants and cafes,
ten times ns ninny streets lights and
twice as many theaters. It Is re
garded as the most expensive place In
the world for the well-to-do nnd the
cheapest for tho poor. Prices at the
Hotel (lit Boulevard are higher than In
New York or London, nnd travelers
who have visited Monte Carlo's lead
ing hotels rind then Journeyed to
Buchnrest hnve found Its rates from
IG'per cent to 25 per cent higher than
those obtaining In the hostelrles of
But If their prices are high, their
service and their food lenves nothing
to be desired. Tho cuisine of tho lend
ing hotels and private homes Is French,
and money Is no consideration qual
ity Is paramount. Some of tho finest

Its scintillating Jewels, its handsome

thing the world hns to offer.
As to clothes, everybody who pre

Many a food that tastes good lacks honesty
of nourishment to equal its taste. Thus it tempts
the appetite into mistakes that often are costly.
Grape-Nuts is a food which helps build bodily
endurance for life's stress and storm. The full
nourishment of wheat and malted barley, together
with tho vital mineral salts so necessary to bono
structure and red blood corpuscles, with phos

The long baking process by which Grape-Nuts is
made gives the food a natural sweetness and an
unusual ease of digestibility and assimilation.
Served with cream or milk, Grape-Nuts is
fully nourishing, and whether eaten as a cereal at
breakfast or lunch, or made into a pudding for

the appetite. Sold by grocers.
