Kulclelo AIMOIII : Mnrricel Men.
Now YorkTnbuno : An insurance pa
per , "tho Chronicle , " has been collt'ctiiij
the statistics of suicides in the Unite >
States. Many of the facts gathered run
thu conchisious derived from them wer
given to the Tribune recently. Amonj
the < most singular and perplexing is th
fact that "tho classification by coudltloi
allows.a creator proportion of suicide
union ; ; the married than tlm unmarrietl
which is contrary to the accepted the
ory. " I Contrary it certainly is to th
statistics of suicides in Kuropo , wher
the fact that mom bachelors than benc
diet ) shulllo off tholr mortal coil volut
tarlly bus long been cited us ono of th
most obvious reasons for entering hit
the holy state of matrimony. If , then
fore , it is true1 , as stated , that the Amor
can married mnn Is moro prone to su
side than his married brother , hoi
dreadful u series of conjectures and Eur
misos is opened up , and now heavy is th
Inferential indictment preferred agaliu
the wife of the period. For it is impoi
iiblo to escape the conclusion that if th
aaulonty of American suicides nro mai
men , tholr desperate deeds must a
Ccet be In part attributed to their cond
Won.
Now it may well bo asked what thor
is or can ho In American married Ufa so
to tiill'ercntiato it from the married llfo
of the old world. In the latter men fly
to wedlock as a guarantee ngatnsl the
morbid humors which are supposed to
Impel the lonely bachelor to the halter
or the stream , Can it bo believed that
in the land of the free and the homo of
thu bravo a contrary stream of tondiincy
runs ? Is it conceivable that husbands
hero are in some mysterious way moved
to seek in the other world relief from
troubles which overwhelm them in this ?
The question is not loss deep than deli
cate , and tlio morn it is pondered the
darker does it appear. For whereas iu
Kuropo thu prevailing system of govern
ment discountenance divorce , with us ,
until quite recently , the facility for dis
solving the marringo bond has been , in
the Judgement o ! many thinkers , ev-
cessive. Moreover , bhakespcaro has ob
served upon the universal disposition
among men rather than to "bear the ills
they have- than lly to others that they know
not of/ ' and what must bo the nature
and c\tont of the present and material
ills whoso weight causes married men
thus to go counter to the common ex-
perieneo of the race1 and choose ) death
with all it bring * ocforo continued ex
istence on the plane of imilriinoncy ?
There is , indeed , ono peculiarly Ameri
can phenomenon which , or HO it may
seem to the cynical , possibly has some
connection with the strange reversal of
suicidal statistics in relation to marriage.
It Is known among men as the woman's
rights question. Its manifestations have
in some respects been awe-inspiring ,
and it is perhaps conceivable that here
and there a married man of abnormally
feeble mind , finding so portentous a pres
ence looming up in his household and
overturning all his lixed ideas as to the
proprieties of things and their fitness ,
might bo so overcome as to lay violent
hands upon himself. Of course this is
the murust conjecture. The real explana
tion of the dlflerenco between the sui
cidal tendencies of married and unmar
ried men here and in Kuropo may bo far
moro abstruse and ditlicult of compre
hension , It is possible that the iin-
measurabln superiority of the American
girl over all other created beings some
times proves too much for the sanity of
the rash man who has aspired to part-
ncrdhlp vitli her , and that subsequent
realization of his own eleliclencics en
genders despair and the suicidal act.
llut it is all a mystery , and we can but
grope blindly after thu solution unless ,
indeed , we are prepared to adopt the
Alexandrian method of undoing the
Gordtan knot and throw thu onus ol
proof upon thu mischievious statistician'
who have involved us in the perplexity
by denying ilatly thu truth of the central
averment. Ami that course , which it
not without its advantages , is open tt
anybody. _

seriously to ask the reason why ? As

though we are afraid the reverse is nose
so generally truo. Love inspires and sus
tains lovo. Conlidenco begets cout

fond of excursions. Has her husban

While He Discourses on Philos
ophy nnel Non-llnslslnnco
A Striking
Mr. George Kcnnnn , the well known
Siberian traveler , recently visiteel Count
Tolstoi in Hussia and publishes In the
Juno Century an account of the great
novelist's social and political views. Mr.
Kcniinn Imd just made an extended tour
in Siberia , under the auspices of the
Century , and was the bor.rcr of import
ant messages to Tolstoi from some of the
political exiles. Ho was especially
charged with the delivery to Count Tel
stoi of a narrative of tho' 'hunger strike"
which took place iu thu prison at Ir-
kotitsk in December , Ib8l , anel lasted
sixteen days. This heroic protest against
injustice and intolerable cruelty by vol
untary self-starvation was undertaken
by four political convicts , all educated
women , who were brought very near to
death , Tlio narrative was written by
Madame Rosslkova , ono of the "hunger
strikers , " and was smuggled out of the
prison by an administrative exile , who
occupied a cell next to her's aud had
siicccded in opening communication
with her at night by means of a cord
with a small weight attached , which ho
swung within rcae'h of her window.
Count Tolstoi read three or four pages of
the maiiuseiipt and then returned it to
Mr. Koniinn. It was expected that the
American's mission to the great teacher
of non-i esistauco vvould boar fruit and it
must be concedcel it was u failure.
Mr. Kcnnau's paper is an extremely in
teresting one , in spite of a detcrm'ined
effort on his part to make it dull. Count
Tolstoi's doctrine of non-resistance ) is not
one in which the world at largo can have
any great interest. It is the personality
of tha novelist , not the theories of the po
litical doctriuairo , that commands atten
tion. Fortunately the man forced his
way to the front and Mr. Kennan's arti
cle , in consequence , is ono of thu most
noteworthy in any American magazine
for many day. Count Tolstoi , at the
time Mr. Kcnnan visited him , was living
on his estate , near the village of Yasnayu
Folyaua , iu the province of Tula. It was
necessary to linel homo conveyance from
Tula , where the visitor left the train , to
the count's house. "Selecting from thu
throng of droshky drivers at the station , "
Mr. Kennan writes , "ouo in whoso face
there was an attractive expression of
mingled shrewdness and good humor. I
called him to me and asked him if he
knew Count Tolstoi. 'Know our Hahiinl'
ho exclaimed , with a broad smile and the
half-caressing , half-deferential manner
of the Russian peasant who has been ac
customed to associate upon terms of per
mitted equality with his superiors. 'How
is it possible not to know the Graf
Why , lie * is ours ! he lives in Ynsimya
Polyana , only litteen versts from here. '
" 'Is there an inn or a post station in
Yasnaya Polyana where 1 can goV' 1 in
quired.
" 'No , ' replied the droshky driver ; 'but
why go to an inn ? You can stay with
the Count ; ho is a plain , .simple man
[ spfsom prostoil ; ho always shakes hands
with me when I go there , and ho works
in the Holds just like a common mu/.hik.
He is a good man , our liahrin ; ho will bei
glad to have you stay with him.1 "
The property was in a r.ithor unkempt
condition and Mr. Konnan was not sure
as to what constituted the front door ol
the mansion. A lady sat on a bench al
thu end of the house under the shade of n
tree. He asked lier if the Count wus al
homo. "Sho replied that she believed he
was , " hu sayX , "and asking me to lollow
her she outereul the house , requested mete
to Descaled in'aj , small reception room ,
and then , tnfpirig to an open door in n
wooden partition , she called in English
"Count , are jyur.there' " A deep yoice
from the other shlu of the partition re
plied , 'Yes. ' i JArgoutlemnn wishes to see
jou , " she saidvand tlmn , without waiting
tor a response , she returned to the cro
quet ground. Them was a sound of r
moving chair in < the adjoining room , and
in a moment Coiint Tolstoi appeared al
the door. I had heard not a little from
his friends with regard to hio eccentrici
ties in tlio matter of dress ; I had been
shown photographs of him iu peasant
garb , and 1 did not therefore expect to
see a man clothed in soft raiment , but i
was hardly prepared , nevertheless , for the
extreme unconvcntionality of his attire ,
"The day was a warm and sultry one ,
He had just returned from work 'in the
fields and his apparel consisted of huav.y
calfskin shoes , loose , almost shapelos'-
trousers of the coarse homespun linen ol
the Russian peasants and a whlto cotton
underslml' without collar or neckerchief.
Ho wore neither coat or waistcoat , and
everything that ho had on seemed to beef
of domestic numifacttirc. Hut even in
this coarse peasant garb Count Tolstoi
was a striking aud impressive figure ,
The massive proportions of his hoavilj
moulded frame wcio only rendcreel the
more apparent by the scantiness nie :
plainness of his dress , and his strong , res
olutc , virile fneu , deeply sunburned h }
exposure in the fields , seemed to acquire
added strength Irom the feminine ! ar
rangemcnl of his iron gr.iy hair , whicli
was parted in the middle "and brushed
back over the temples. Count Tolstoi'i
features may bo best describeel in Tuscan
phrase ns "moulded with the list and pol
ishcd with the pickaxe , " nnd the impres
sion they convey is that of independence
self reliance and unconquerable strength
The face docs not seem at lirsl
glance to bo that of a student or n spoon-
lativo thinker , but rather that of n man ol
action accustomed to deal promptly and
decisively with perilous emergencies , am
to light ffercoly for his own hsnd. re
gardless of odds. Tlio rather small eye *
elecply set under shaggy brows are ot si
peculiar grny which lichts up in excite
nieut with a Hash like that of drawn
steel ; the nose is large anel prominent
with a singular widcness and bluntnesa
at the onel ; the lips are full anel firmly
closed ; and the outlines of the chin anei
jaws , so far as they can bu seen througl :
the full gray beard , only give additionn
emphasis to the expression of virile
strength , which is the distmgulsliini !
characteristic of tlio largo , rugged face.
"I explained to him,1' ' Mr. Kcnnan con
Unties , "that my call was the result partis
of a promise which I had maelo to some
of his friends and admirers in Siberia
and pailly of a dcsint to make the per
sonal acquaintance of an author whosi
books had given me so much pleasure.
" 'What books of mine have you read'
ho asked quickly. I replied that 1 luu
road all of his nqvcls.including 'War air.
Peace , ' 'Anna Kjircnniua' and 'The Cos
sacks. ' ' ,
" 'Have you seen any of my latter writ
ings ? ' ho inquired.
" 'No , ' 1 said ; 'they have all , or nearl'
all , appeared ainco 1 went to Siberia. '
" 'Ah ' ho 'then '
! responded , you don'
know mo at all. Wo will get ae
quaintcd. ' '
"At this mopiont my ragged nnd generally
orally unpresentable droahky driver
whoso existence 1 had wholly forgotten
entered the d or. Count Tolstoi at onci
rose , greeted .him cordially as an old ac
quaintance , shook his hand as warmly a
he had shaken mine and asked him witl
unaffected interest a number of question
nbout his domestic affairs and the noTv
of the day in Tula. It was perhaps i
trilling incident , but 1 was not at vvha
imo ns well acquainted n I now nm
with Count Tolstoi's ideas concerning
oclnl question ! , ami to see a wealthy
tusslan noble , nnd the greatest of living
novelists , shaking hands upon terms of
icrfect equality with a poor , ragged and
lot overclenn droshky driver whom I
md picked up In thu streets of Tula was
ho first of the series of surprises which
nndei my visit to Count Tolstoi memor
able. "
The reception room whore Mr. Kcnnan
mot Count Tolstoi was small aud nearly
square , and seemed to servo a double
mrposo ns R reception room nn-l a hull.
Two of IU walls were of vrhitc plaster ;
ho third consisted of one side of a largo
) Von covered with glazed tiles , and the
fourth was formed by an unpaintcd
wooden partition pierced by a eloor
which opened apparently Into Count
Tolstoi's library or work room. The lloor
yas bare : the furniture , which was old-
nshioncd in form , consisted of two or
hreo plain chairs , a deep sofr. , or settle ,
ipholstcred with worn green monicco ,
ind a small cheap table without a cloth.
Three pairs of antlers were fastened
against the walls , ana upon ono of them
lung an old slouch hat ami a white col
on shirt similar to that which Count
I'olstol had on. There was n marble
bust in a nichu behind the settle , nnd two
engraved portraits , ouo of Dickens and
ono of Schopenhauer , were Imug against
thu wall.
"At lunch , " Mr. Konnan writes , "I
net , for the fir. ° t time , Count Tolstoi's
argo family , which consisted of tlio
countess , a stntoly , dark-haired lady.wlio
mist in her youth have been extremely
} cautiful ; the eldest son , who had re
cently been graduated from ono of the
Russian universities ; the eldest daughter ,
i girl perhaps twenty years of ngo ; two
Bright-faced nieces anel three or four
younger children. There wore also pres
ent a young man in a highly ornamental
> aasant rostumc , worn evidently from
iaprico or in imitation of the count , and
.wo ladles of middle ngo whoso relations
to the family 1 could not determine , but
who were probably nothing more than
nero frionels anel converts to the Tolstoi
ihllosouhy.
"The lunch passed quickly withbrigl.t ,
spontaneous conversation , in which all
ioincd without the least appearance of
: ormnlity or restraint , and in the course
ofwhich Count Tolstoi himse-lf man-
tested more boyishness andgayetv than
I hail yet given him credit lor. When
we had risen from the table ho produced
and proceeded to sell at auction to the
ugliest bidder a richly embroidered
towel , the work of a peasant
woman , which , ho said , had been
brought to him as a present
jut which he was unwilling to accept
because the giver was very poor ami
really in need of the money that the
towel represented. Amid general laughter -
tor Count Tolstoi's son and I , who wore
tlio principal bidders , ran the price up by
successive offers of live kopeks moro to
two roubles and a half , when the auc
tioneer , with non-professional candor ,
declared that that was too much ; that
the American traveler in the course of
the bidding had offered two roubles , which
was about what the towel was worthand
that consequently it was his eluty to
award it to him. Young Tolstoi , with
mock indignation , protcstcel against the
unfairness of that sort ot an auction , but
his motion for a now trial was overruled
on the novel ground that the towel bo-
longeel to the auctioneer , who therefore
had tin unquestionable right to knock it
down to any bidder whom he clioso. His
son laughingly acquiesced in the ruling ,
anel the merry group which had gathered
about the auctioneer dispersed. "
*
Some time after luncheon Count Tolstoi
proposed a walk. A short distance from
the house they mot Miss Tolstoi , the
count's eldest daughter , dressed as a
peasant girl , on her \vny homo from the
Holds where she had been raking hay
with the village girls of Yasnaya
Polyana. The peasant dress of bright
scarlet , out low in the neck all around ,
tlio braided hair , nnd the strings of largo
colored glass beads which hung in festoons
teens over her breast , changed her ap-
pearancn so completely that Mr. Kcnnan
did not recognixc her until her father
called her by _ name. It aupenred that
she shared his views with regard to
manual toil and was accustomed to work
in the fields of any poor neighbor \vlic
was in need of assistance. Count
Tolstoi himself had spent the morning in
spreading manure over the land of n
poor widow who lived near his estate ,
anel would have devoted the afternoon
to the same occupation but for Mr. Ken-
nan's visit.
Mr. Kennan's account of the manner
jn which Count Tolstoi spends his even
ings will bo read with interest. Ho says :
"Tho Counters Tolstoi invited mo to
drink tea in her sitting-room , nnd there
we were soon afterward joined by the
count , who brought in with him a large
lap-board , nn onen box , or tray , contain
ing shoemaker's instruments and ap
pliances , and nn unllnisliod pair of shoes ,
Seating himself quietly in a good lighthe
laid the board across his knees , took up
one of the shoes , and began to put on n
henl , as if it were the most natural thing
in the world for the author of 'Anna
Kare-nninn'anil th ( ! owner of an estate
worth 000,000 roubles , to spend his even
ings in cobbling. I Imd already
boem surprised so many times thai
'day ' that my nervous organization
had nearly cense-d to respond to that
sort of emotionaltimiilation ; but the diS'
eovery that Count Tolstoi was a shoe
maker had still enough piquancy anel
grotosquencss nbout it to excite a lirsl
thrill of wonderment , I seated myself di-
roctlv opposite him , wherei I could occa
sionally facilitate his labor by handing
him the necessary implements , and he
discoursed learnedly upon shoomnkingiu
an art , nnd explained to me the line
points of workmanship involved in put
ting on a heel and the extreme dillicultj
of trimming the solo neatly without cut
ting the "upper. " HP seemed to fcei
more honest pride in his ability to make
a shoo than in his ability to write'\vai \
and I'eaco' or 'Tho Cossacks ; ' but aftei
watching tlio progress of his labor foi
half an hour with an unprejudiced , if ar
uncritical eye , 1 decided , with all respcci
for the versatility of his talents , that 1
would rather read ono of his novels thar
wear a pair of his shoes. "

Haltimoro lluralel : When Kov. Sam
Tones and Rev. Sam Small came to thu
city last year their .services wore attended
jy immunso numbers of persons , and the
results of the meetings in that respect
vent beyond thu expectation of the most
sanguine promoters of the movement.
t was inevitable that some friction should
> u developed with the ministers of thu
conservative denominations , but on the
vholo the clergy of the city accorded the
evangelists a hearty welcome and loft a
reo field for thu exorcise of their voca
tions.
This was a year ngo , and it is under
stood that Kov. Sam Jones will shortly
ovisit tliis city. It is probable that hu
will be alone , if only for the reason that
Mr. Small is a very sick mnn.
