A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. Vladimir Skripkin, a handsome young man of some 30 years, was a clerk in the Russian Ministry of the Interior. At home he was a musician ; that is to say, having been accus tomed to play the piano 6ince he was eight or nine, he had acquired a thorough command over the keys, and could execute almost any thing, from a waltz or Strauss to a morceau oi Tskaikoflsky's, with a degree of correctness and sentiment which was highly creditable in a petty ' tshinovnik' who received but 80 roubles a month. He also composed various dances and reveries; but the complaint of his friends was that he never had a chance of showing what was in him. The chance did come at last, and when least ex pected. One night Skripkin was invited to play at a toirie dansante given by one of his colleagues, who was glad of getting it done gratis, and his success was unparalleled.

He_ pulled down his apron and pushed the one pistol he had left into his belt. It was unusual for Pierre to wear an apron, but, as he said, a cellar-man who has to look after his wine and bis guests must not be too particular ; though his man, Jean, had become much more fastidious in regard to his dress and the character of his work since there had been a talk of 'Liberte, Egalite, Fraternito,' a mere phrase at present, except to the more ambitious organisers of the revolution that was beginning to spread with devouring force. The word of command which had arrested Pierre's attention was given to- a company of gendarmerie a chevel that had dashed up to the inn, the horses wet with foam, the men in bright new uniforms, the ...

THE PYAP SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE PYAP SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOU. Sir— In your report of the proceedings of the Select Committee who recently enquired into the working of the village settlements there appears a statement by Mr. Birchell, which being a reflection upon me as an in dividual, as well as upon the other engineers on the settlement, I wish you would allow me to correct. Mr. Birchell stated that the engine and pump were in the wrong place, causing the use of 320 additional feet of piping. This is not so. The engine and pump were fixed to pump water to the 80 ft. level, and were in the best place in Pvap for that purpose, but it was after wards decided (against my wishes, by the way), to continue to the 100 ft. level, when the addi tional pipe became necessary. — I am, &c, ?
