special rights. For instance, the military service of Cossacks is subject
to a special order.

Certain nomadic tribes are exempt from military service.

Finland pays down a sum of money into the Russian Exchequer
in order to receive exemption from military service.

2. Exemption is given on account of physical drawbacks, provided
that such incapacity has not been brought about wilfully. Such a matter
is inquired into by the military commission of the district.

3. Exemption is granted on account of circumstances connected with
family life. These are divided into four classes.

The first class includes :—

(а) Only sons.

(б) The son who is the only one fit to work, when the father is
incapacitated, or the mother is a widow ; if at the time of presenting
himself for military service, this man has no brother who has reached
the age of 16 years, nor a brother already in actual military service—
either because he drew a lot, or because he is serving as a volunteer—
who will complete his term of military service during the next year.

(c) A man whose parents are dead, and who is the only one fit to
support one or several brothers or unmarried sisters, provided that
he has no brother who has reached the age of 16 years, nor a brother
already in actual military service—either because he drew a lot, or
because he is serving as a volunteer—who will complete his term of
military service during the next year.

(d) The only grandson fit to work, when the grandparents have
no son fit to work, or any other sons or grandsons who have reached
the age of 16 ; or sons or grandsons who are already in actual military
service—either because they drew lots, or because they are serving
as volunteers—who will complete their term of military service during
the next year.

(e) An illegitimate son who supports his mother, or his unmarried
sister or his brother who is not fit for work ; provided that the mother
has not another son fit to work, nor one who has reached the age of 16,
nor one who is already in actual military service—either because he
has drawn a lot, or because he is serving as a volunteer—who will
complete his term of military service during the next year.

(/) A widower who has neither parents nor grandparents, and who
has one or several children.

(g) Exemption of the second class refers to the son who is the
only one fit for work, whose father, though capable of work, is 50 years
of age, but under 55 years, and if there is no other son who has reached
the age of 16, nor one who is already in actual military service—
either because he has drawn a lot, or because he is serving as a volunteer
—who will complete his term of military service during the next
year.

(h) Exemption of the third class refers to :—

(i.) The son who is the only one fit to work, whose father,
although capable of work, is under 50 years of age, and who
