Opinions about Tolstoy and his work differ, but on one point there surely might be unanimity. A writer of world- wide reputation should be at least allowed to know how to spell his own name. Why should any one insist on spell- ing it \u201cTolstoi\u201d (with one, two or three dots over the \u201ci\u201d), when he himself writes it \u201cTolstoy\u201d? The only reason I

have ever heard suggested is, that in England and America such outlandish views are attributed to him, that an out- landish spelling is desirable to match those views.

This novel, written in the rough by Tolstoy some years ago and founded upon an actual occurrence, was completely rewritten by him during the last year and a half, and all the proceeds have been devoted by him to aiding the Doukhobors, a sect who were persecuted in the Caucasus (especially from 1895 to 1898) for refusing to learn war. About seven thousand three hundred of them are settled in Canada, and about a hundred of the leaders are exiled to the remote parts of Siberia.

Anything I may receive for my work in translating the book will go to the same cause. \u201cPrevention is better than cure,\u201d and I would rather help people to abstain from killing and wounding each other than devote the money to patch up their wounds after the battle.
