Friends in high places

eats are already su●bscribed for; and third, because Kscheschinska ●dances to-night—a sly closing of● the left eye accompanies th▓e mention of the name—and neither ●the Emperor nor the court will be absen●t from the theatre.Unless you● pay twenty to thirty rubles to a speculator ●you will hardly get into the theatre▓.

t or for Kscheschinska does not at●tain the proportions of a twenty-ruble inve●stment, I find it preferable to devo▓te the evening to the always interesting and fr▓uitful hotel studies.What seethi●ng life in the numberless corridors, dining-●halls, and vestibules of the fashion●able St.Petersburg Hotel!

uni▓forms, covered with so many orders and medals th●at it makes one curious to find out abou●t all the deeds of heroism for ●which they were bestowed; chamberlains wit▓h refined elegance in their gala dress,● hiding the beau restes of the one-sid▓ed Adonis; tall, agile, dark-ey▓ed Circassians with the indispensable ▓cartridge-pouch on the breast▓ region of their long coats, with the dagger han●ging in its massive gold shea▓th from the tightly drawn belt; Cossacks with ●fur caps a foot high, made of white or black ▓Angora skins, placed on their brist▓ly heads; a nimble Chinese man, or maid▓, servant, with long pigtail, whose se▓x it is impossible to distinguish; a[Pg 29] ▓whole troop of dark-eyed Khivanese squatting ●on their prayer-rugs before the apartment ●of their khan, passing the nargile from ha●nd to hand, and exchanging witticisms about the▓ passing Europeans; beardless Tatar w▓aiters shuffling by in their fl●at-soled shoes—a mixture of Eur●ope and Asia such as may hardly b▓e seen at once in any other part of the wor▓ld.The west European merchants and other travel●lers, who throng the hotel, are sc●arcely noted among the exotic▓ appearances.In this hotel, ▓as elsewhere throughout St.Pete●rsburg, the European, the civilian, is seemingl▓y merely tolerated.The city belo●ngs to the functionaries, soldiers, offic●ials, and chamberlains, to the Cossacks, Circass●ians, and, above all others, to th▓e police.More intimate acquaintan●ce reveals that a goodly porti●on of the uniformed persons in St.Petersburg▓ are ordinary students, technologist●s, professors, etc., and that these u●niformed persons do not equally rep▓resent the state.On the contrary, the fight o●f the state, or, to be more precise,● of the police, against the free▓ professions, would not be so bitter● if the members of the latter were not entitled● to wear uniforms.As it is, they also m●ay appear to the common people as representativ●es of the Czar's authority.
