THE SLAV AND THE BRITON

Mr H. tt. Weils, the novelist, who has recently returned from a brief sojourn in Russia, was much impressed by the fact that there is much physical resemblance between Englishmen and Russians. "So far as the look of things go," he is reported to have said, " the likeness surprises me. Russians certainly look more like Englishmen than any other people- I have ever been among- 'They not only look like Englishmen, but they move like Englishmen: th.-ey hold their hands and arms and sit in chairs lik» Englishmen; and their disposition in costume is English. And the Rtmsiau women are English, too, with a kind of natural freshness and an inattention to smartness that contrast vividly with the French or American women. They ax* far more English than tho Americana in style, carrlano, and intonation. You can "tell whether people talking in the next room are English or American, but not whether they are English or Euseian."
