JOAN OF ARC IN THE SERVIAN ARMY
Servia has given the world an
other Joan of Arc, Molly Pitcher. or
Barbara Frietchle; another woman
whose name perhaps will ring
through the poetry and patriotism of
all time when the war that now :s
rending Europe is ended.
Her name is Sophia Yovanovrtsch.
and when some Serb historian rises
to tell the story of the struggle of
the little kingdom against the Turk
the name of Sophia will become a
household word in the Balkans.
When the war cloud that has how
ered for twenty years over the Bal
kans broke and little Servia sprang
to arms. Sophia was one of the most
ardent patriots. There were three
young men avowedly suitors for her
hand, and to each of them she gave {
the same order-not to ask her to ". "

their worthiness by serving the .
country as soldiers In the army
Two. both Serbs. at once rushed to the colors, but it is related in Bel
grade that Dmitri hesitated and finally was ordered by the girl either to
enlist at once or to renounce forever all thought of marriage with her. Also
It was evident that Dmitri loved Sophia more than he loved Servia. for he
enlisted.
Sophia Yovanovitach did not know that iDmitrl had enlisted. Stirred by
her patriotism, she decided upon a plan. That night in her boudoir she
called her maid. and, ignoring the protests of the maid, she clipped short
her great mass of black hair, her crowning beauty, and. attiring herself in a
suit of clothes belonging to her younger brother, she went to Merderi. out

Her father was an officer in the regiment, her brother a petty officer.
and her sweetheart a private. One of the other men who sought her hand
in marriage also was a petty ofcer, and the girl, surrounded by friends, was
compelled to hide her identity.
Not a suspicion of her sex was raised. She bore the hardships of the
journey through Bulgaria and the hard work of the regiment when it joined
the allied forces.

name is derived the word "msuso

every caravan which fared forth Into

It is related of Mr. Morgan that
he is fairly Independent, too, and that

Closely Veiled.
Bombay, India.-Reviewing J. A.
Spender's book. "The Indian Scene."
the London Spectator says:
To those who have not seen India
the descriptive chapters of "The In
dian Scene" will be of very great in
terest. Mr. Spender is content to de
scribe what he saw in the simplest
way, and by this means gives the read
er a strong sense of the reality of
what he is told. Nowhere is this done
with more completeness than in the
opening chapter on Bombay. What
strikes him is not the place so much
as the people. Every street swarms
with them, and "no half dozen seem
alike." Their color varies from white
to very nearly black, their costume
"from the frock coat to the loin
cloth" The ear is as much occupied
as the eye, for the slightest transac
tion "appears to require the unloosing
simultaneously of all tongues In a
wide circle of disinterested specta
tore." The spectator may flatter him
self after a time that he can tell a
Hindue from a Mohammedan. But
this has not taken him far. "Either
Hindu or Mohammedan may belong to
any one of a dozen different races.
and the Hindu may, according to his
caste, be the most exalted of human
kind or at a depth so low as hardly
to be, or to reckon himself human."
Then there is the contract between
I life and death, between the rich Par

I closed his eyes, to the towers of si
lence, with their "obscene semicircles
of vultures sitting huddled together
on the rims of the two pits waiting for I
their next meal." And then there is
the fact-more separating races per
haps than any other feature of Indian
I life-that into the vast majority of
a houses which "to all outward seeming

him that he is not in Europe. The
country is fiat, it has many trees, it is
cut up into small fields and very close
ly cultivated. It is the human element
and the animal element that make it
unlike Europe-the women "swathed
in crimson muslin," the children "elth
er naked or fantastically dressed up,
the thin walnut colored men, "with
white turbans and bare legs, the big
loose limbed donkeys who pass in a
kind of ambling gallop," the' hump
backed cattle. "mild miniature beasts,"
the straight-backed lead colored buf
faloes. Then comes a railway station
and a fresh "riot oi color and fancy."
Opposite the carriage stands a vener
able gentleman in bright green flower
ed silk dressing gown, with a pink tur
ban and white pajamas; near him
there is a woman "in a shapeless mass
of orange cotton," a tiny child, "with
embroidered coat and absurd little
U buff trousers ending In red shoes,"
and an old man who crowns a gray
: frock coat with a crimson turban, and
. wraps his legs in "a careless swathe
aof white muslin." Mr. Spender's train
* was delayed for ten minutes because a
party of ladies had to be got out. An
immense sheet was held in front of
their carriage, in which they were
somehow enwrapped, and the group
was left "standing likp a great, white
box in the middle of the platform."
When Raiputana is entered the fields
a- are replaced by "vast prairielike
spaces scorched to a untform pale
a brown." Fifty miles further on the
country becomes like Provence be
tween Lyons and Marseilles, except
that the soil is brown instead of red
and the trees are acacias, not olives.
But agalin It is the people and the ani
mals that make the difference. The
t men are riding camels, the women are
walking gracefully with water jars on
their heads, buck are pretty plentiful,
and so are large birds among which
Mr. Spender could only make out "the
big brown kite and the long-tailled
green parrot."

LAND OF LOST MEN

El Paso. Tex.-Is there a "port of
missing men?" That is a question to!
be answered as your fancy dictates.
says a writer. But that there is a
country from which men are con
stantly "missing" allows of no con
tradiction. A section of this great
United States of America there is
which literally swallows up human be
ings and leaves no inkling of their
fates or their whereabouts. Such a
section and such places are found
throughout the great southwest from
western Texas to the Pacific coast.
Not one man or one woman. but
scores of men and women, come. are
seen and vanish in this section of the
states each year. To disappear from
off the face of the earth as completely
as if one had never existed is not a
feat easy of accomplishment even in
the great centers of population in the
eastern states. And in this country of
missing men it happens so frequently
that only a case of extraordinary in
terest commands the attention of the
natives. A grant or a shrug of the
shoulders dismisses the matter as
soon as it is mentioned. One must be
rich or one must be influential if one
would have the arm of the law
stretched forth in succor. The pen
alty of obscurity here, as elsewhere,
is Indifference. "Who cares?"'-who.
indeed?
But indifference alone is not re
sponsible for the lack of interest in
so small a matter as the mere disap
pearance of a man. No. there is that
In the attitude of the average native
of the southwest, which makes him
hesitate to show any interest or con
cern in the affairs of another man.
In the east such questions as "Where
are you from?" or "Are you in busi
ness here?' are common enough. And
such questions are asked with no pur
pose or intent of prying into another's
affairs. It is a part of the social cus
toms of the "polite" east to show
some interest in another's well-being.
But such personal. intimate questions
never fall from the lips of the man
born or reared in the great southwest.
Only a few days ago the proprie
tress of one of the largest and finest
boarding houses in El Paso furnished
mate but convincing evidence of the
fact that men disappear all too often
in thbed parts. Taking the corre
spondent up to a spacious garret, she
pointed to a pile of trunks and other
effects and said:
"You see all these trunks here?
