VERKHNE-IMBATSKOYE TO SUMAROKOVA
i

and stowing away the things that were handed up to
them.
Here, again, Loris-Melikov came across some country
men, two Armenian political exiles. One of them, a
smith, was of pretty nearly the same type as himself ;
and this smith told him that the pristav (prefect of
police) at Turukhansk was a kind man, especially to
Armenians. He also said that they received their monthly
allowance of fifteen roubles, even if they did a little work ;
but they did none in this village ; for the people there
were so poor, he said, that it would be only taking away
their work. Altogether there were six exiled Caucasians
here at Sumarokova. A loose talker of a trader we
met next day at Vorogovo, however, thought these
political exiles were a plague to the country. It was not
very surprising that they would not work ; those at
Sumarokova had stripped his son of 700 roubles at cards,
he asserted ; but as to the truth of that, it is as it may
be. If the son was anything like the father, I can only
suppose that he had honestly deserved it.
