DIMITRI, THE WATER CARRIER
True Story of ft Itnaalan Victim
of ' the Whims of For
tune. ST. PETERSBURG, July 1. Tt was at
the csar's coronation In Moscow that
Dlmltrl, the water carrier, encountered the
drama of his life. The story has not been
published, for In Russia It Is not perm'tted
to name living royal perronages In such
circumstances. Moreover Dlmltrl'a mad
ness from the sudden possession of riches
would not be a very surprising thing to
his countrymen, accustomed to the mind
of the peasant mujlk.
Moscow Is a city of palaces, but moat
of them are too wanting In mode.-n com
fort to be usd as irdglngs by distinguished
guests. Some hundred foreign royalties
were In the old capital together by the
czar's Invitation to see him crowned. Most
had 4o be boarded out among the families
of officers of the Russian court.
Among these were the sister of the czar's
bride and her husband. Prince Henry of
Prussia, who stayed In the residence, near
the little Moscow river, of a colonel in the
czar's suite. From his window Prince
Henry became Interested In the regular
early morning proceedings of Dlmltrl, the
The business seemed quaint to western
eyes, but nature has given Moscow a very
small supply of running water and en
gineering had then done nothing to in
crease It. Vodovos, or water contractors,
furnished each house with its dally ra
tions, after the manner of milkmen.
Twenty-year-old tow headed Dlmltrl
placidly filled his barrels and fixed them
In a row between the long shafts of his
cart. Then he went his rounds all un
knowing that he was ministering to the
wants of the czar's brother-in-law.
When the feastlngs were over and the
guests preparing to depart Prince Henry
bethought himself of distributing tips. The
prince's host delicately suggested that the
staff of attendants would appreciate their
gifts doubly If they came from the prince'
own hand. Moreover that would defeat
the purpose of the Russian official major
domo attached to Prince Henry's suite, who
proposed to relieve him of the trouble of
distribution by drawing on him for a lump
sum, keeping three-quarters of It and di
viding the remainder among his own so
The prince decided to do his own tip
ping. As the water carrier was the first
human being whom his eyes had beheld
In the streets of Moscow, each day he
sent for Dlmltrl. The astonished young
moujlk wss told that a Veliki Knlax, a
grand duke, the czar's brother-in-law,
anted to see him. He obeyed dumbly
nd was ushered Into the presence of an
amiable man not much older than him
self and apparently about as much embarrassed.
Whether from Ignorance of the scale

ess Impelled him to err far on the side
of generosity. Prince Henry pressed three
notes for 100 rubles each Into the youth's
and. Dlmltrl stood amazed, staring at the
money and uttering never a word. Prince
Henry nodded cheerfully and bade him go.
Clutching the notes in his fist, Dlmltrl
made his way , blindly back to his cart
by the river side. He sat on the shaft and
tried to realize what It all meant.
Nobody In his position, he reflected.

moujlks, for the class compartments of
life In Russia are too firmly fixed by law
to allow the possibility of a rich relation.
A he hugged the reality of hi fortune,
which made him a richer man than any
body In hi village, fear seized him.
II left hi master' horse and cart, took
hi few rubles of savings from his box In
the stable and after hiding the prince's

the railway station. He took a train for
the town nearest his village and on the
journey kept silent in the choruses of holi
day makers. ,

that he had come home.
In the early hours of the next morning
hi people were awakened by horrified, des
parlng shouts. They found Dlmltrl beside
himself with grief, his eyes devouring a
shapeless, muddy mass that he was holding
up to the light.
'My 300 rubles," he groaned and reached
again down Into his boot for another pinch
of unrecognisable currency. His brothers
were not less astounded and soon as much
afraid as himself. Among them they could
lilei.lify In the trampled, stained paper
pulp the faint traces ot the long image
stamped Russian 100-rouble note.
The family council voted to hush up the
business, but Dlmltrl would not be silenced.
He got out Into the village and shouted
for his money until his dellum landed him :
In the police cell.
At first he was taken for a harmless'
madman, but when the police, In their turn,
deciphered the ruined notes they believed
they had a big case. He gave the police
the name of his last employer. He had left
his place without giving notice a serious
police offence in Russia.
For a week he lay In prison until a state
ment came from his employer that Dlmltrl
had disappeared leaving the horse and cart
in the public road. The water contractor
could suggest no explanation of the 300
rubles, Dlmltrl protested that they were
given him by a Veliki Knias why, he did
By this time Trlnce Henry and his wife
had returned to Germany.
