The Amazing Story of Maria Botchkareva Leader oi the Russian Battalion ot Death THIS STARTS THE STORY 1 In the summer of 1917, Maria Hotchkareva formed thf Huttallou of Death, a wt. nan's fighting unit in thf Russian ai my, and thus a peasant girl stepped into the in ternational hall of lame. This i8 her story. In earlier installments ehe tolti of her childhood; of the brutalities of her married life, her attempt to commit suicide to es cape a cruel husband, and her final success tn vading him. Bbe told of her many molestations at the hands of officials, soldiers and how .**he was trapped in a hou.se of shame by promises of work. .She escaped from this house but im mediately returned when the police made advances to her insteid of affording protection. In desperation she attempted suicide a second time. A man intervened. She ?rrew to like him and they lived together by civil agreement. She lived hap pily with him for three years when a revolutionist, a friend of her sec ond husband, .?ought refuge at their home. The political refugee and husband fled when discovered bv the authorities. They were cnucht <n their flight. Maria Rotch koreva was arrested and question ed. She and her husband became separated. She travels many hun dred r.iiles to find him She locates him in a prison and eete out to cany her appeal to the governor. AND HERE IT CONTINUES ?'v("m|ht M?, I' Fndcrlrii A Mata? foaa jajiT. AH Ritti?.? lleaetT. ? ? When it dawned I fathered my la?t enemies, stood up and called out again. This time ? waa observed, aud a canot was ?ent after me I'nfoi ' tunately. it was In charge of a boy j 1 was too sick to move, and he could I net carry me to it. I had to creep on all fours to the j finally Pound boat. With the boy'? Heraelf ha a aid. 1 Anally 'ound raaoe. myself In the canoe. It took him a Ion? time to ferry me across, and I was In a stale of collapse by the time v.e reached the other side. 1 was taken j to the Kuznctzov Hospital in Irkutsk (again, where I lay dangerously ill for . several week?. During this time ? ? ?lost all of my lair and r-ilf of mv ! weight. After my visit to Yasha he j naturaly told his prison mates of it. ? being proud of my loyalty to him. but when days and weeks passed by. and I did not return, his oamrades I began to tease him about me. I "A fine baba is yours. Tou may in deed be proud of her.'* they would j torment him. "She found aome other husband. A lot does shaj need you. a ?t-isonr. They are all alike, yours and ours." Yasha took such droller.es very much to heart. He was in com plete ignorance of my whereabout.-: ? and finally made up his mind that I ? had betrayed him. As soon as ? was relea?*?] from the j hospital. G went to the governor gen T era!, in whose office I wa.-, told that 1 Yasha had been sentenced to four '> ears' exile. Obtaining a pass. I went to Alexandrovsk to see him. But Vasha would not see me. Believing 1 his co-rade.**' taunts, con!; ?ned by my two months* ehsence. he resolved that he was through with me. I was : naturally at a loss to account for this - abrupt change, and wept bitterly. ? Some of his ac';-;aTnancr-.-i. who had been brought down-stairs, saw me cry ! and reported To him my emaciated ' ap-earance. Then he came down. j Visitors were not allowed to come | In cont.ic*" wlt'.i the prisoners at Alex I androvsk. There were two ?t^? grat I iniis in the office, separated bv a dls ' tance of a couple of feet. The pris i oner -was kef; behind one grating. ; w-hile the persons who came to see ' him were placed behind the other. ; They could not touch each other. This was the setting in wh.Cii I was ? permitted te meet Yasha. We both ?cried like cliTdren. he. at the sight of | my thinness. realii.ng that he had ? wronged me in suspecting me of faith lessness. Tt waa a pathetic ecene, this meeting behind bars. Yasha told ? me that he would not be exiled be fore May. As I offered to accompany him Into exile. It was necesary for me to spend the several Intervening months ?t some work. I also had to ? get permission to join Tasha in exile. ? I found work with the same asphal? ! firm, hut now as a common laborer. | earning only 50 kopeck? a dav. At interval? I would go to Alexandrovak ; to see Yasha. One time I was work I ins at a Job In the Irkutsk prison, ? and It was not long before the prison erg knew thst I had a hush.ind In Alexar.drovsk, for there ? ?? a oom ? lete underground system of com munication between the two prisons. On the whole. 1 was Treaty Knocks well treated by con Hrr Down; viete. One even.ng. Fight fellow?, however, while at ? work in the hall, a trusty, catching me in a con.er. at tacked me. I fought hard as he knocked me down. My cries were heard by the laborers of my party and several prisoners. Soon we were sur rounded by a crowd, and a quarrel ensued b( tween those who defended me and the friends of the trusty. An as.isslstant warden and some guard-* put an end to it. drawing up a pro tocol of my complaint to htve the trusty tried In court for assault. As the day of the tr*al drew near Yasha was urged hy his fellow pris oners to influence mo to withdraw my charge. Ho told me that the law of prison communal life -demanded that , I comply with the request to drop my I eomptatnt. I knew that my refusal might mean Yasha's death, and when I I was called In court to testify against the trusty. ? declared that there had been no assault nnd that ? hail no complaints to mak". The case was dis missed, and my net enhanced Yasha's reputation among the Inmates of both prisons. The winter pased. Toward Kaster of 1913 1 succeeded In obtaining per mission to have myself arrested and sent to A lexardrovsk. In anticipation ?of my exile with Yashs- I was put In the women's building, in which were deta ned a number of women ertali ? nais. What I endured at their hands ; is almost beyond description. They ! beat me. but ? knew that complaining | would make my loi mo?*? bitter. When supper was served to ua the matron asked me If I had been maltreated. ? answered negatively, but she must have known better, for, turning to ! the women, she instructed them not ', to punish me. ! My reply to the matron somewhat improved my status with my prison-1 mates, but they forced me. neverthe less, to wait on them and do their dirty work. In addition to these suf ferings, the food was putrid. The bunks in which we slept were unclean. I Eight of ns were in one tiny cell. ? saw Y .ash a only once a week, every Sunday. 1 sp nt two months in this voluntary imprisonment, but it seemed like two years to me. and ? looked forward eagerly and impatiently to the day of our starting on the open road to exile. CHATTER IV - ti in .1 by a Libertine Governor. May had come. Thr Lena had oponed and become navigable. The heavy- iron doore of the prison were unlocked and hundreds of inmates. In cluding Yasha and me. were mustered out in the yard to prepare for exile Every winter the huge prison at Alcxandrovak would gather into its wa'Ia thousand.- of wrecked human betn-fl murderer?., forgers, thieves, students, officers, peasants and pro fessional persons, who had trans gressed against the tyrannical re gime,. Every spring the gloomy Jail would open its doors and pour out a stream of half-benumbed men and women into the wild Siberian taiga and the uninhabited regions border ing on the Arctic. All spring and -summer this nver ol exasperated humanity would flow t! rough .Mexandrovsk into the snow ?f.und north, where they languished in unendurable climatic conditions and succumbed in large numbers in the land of the six months' night Tens of thousands of, them lie scattered from the Vrai Mountain? to Alaska in unmarked graves. ... So finally we were to breathe some fresh air. There wag bustle and hustle before our party was formed. There were a It-out a thousand persons in it, including' twenty women. Our guard consisted of 500 soldiers. We were 1 to go on foot to Katchugo, near the source of the Lena, a distance of about 200 versts. Our baggage wa* loaded on wagons. We made thirty-five versts in the first day. according to schedule, stop ping for the night at an exile-station on the edge of a village. The Si berian roads ar? criss-crossed by such stations?large wooden buildings gf barn-like construction, with iron doors and grated windows. Empty inside, , but for double tiers of bunks, they | are surrounded by high fence?, with ? a sentry-box at every corner. They offer no opportunity for escape, ? We supped on food we had brought | from the prison, and turned in for I the night. Our party was divided Into ; groups of ten. each group choosing a tiu.sty charged with the purchasing ' of food. ?t_,u-niti2 wiih the ?secuud Certainly it is always a woman'?, duty to look her beet?to be beau-I tfful if possible?and it Is some times necessary to assist nature al bit in thi:- direction. The beautiee of the Oriental j harems were perhaps thp origina- i tors of the use of cosmetics. Hut I while they adopted these artificial] methods of improving or enhancing beauty, they have never jeopardized health and beauty itself by using a coating of enamels and paints such a? the supposedly more "civilized" women of the Occident have done. The Oriental woman will make a very simple and effective rouge from the petals of damask roses, crushed In white-wine vinegar. Another method they use is to dip crimson silk in spirits of wine and rub upon the cheeks, chin and ears. It requires an artist's hand to put i ???emetics on effectively. The aver age woman will do well to confine herself to the smallest possible | amount of rouge, lipstick or eye-1 brow pencil. Meiny preparations are very dan serous; some are absolutely poison-j ous. Before using any cosmetic, the; user should know exactly what it ? contains. Taints injure the skin and , age It rapidly. For the eyes, kohol may ht* used, ? after the Oriental fashion.

The two j sections did not get along well, and there was a continuous f. ud Men j and women were pac-lted together, and ? some of the latter conducted them selves outrageously. The flltli. the vermln-*-aten bunks, the unimagin able stench, the frequent brawls, made our trip insufferably nideous. Besides, there was a privileged group with us. It consisted of the long-sentence convicts, in chains, who were alway? given priority by the unwritten law of the eliminai world. They would he first to BM the kettles to prepare their food. l.'mil they were through none of us dared approach the Are. Their word was la??. They were always given the right-of-way. Even the soldiers and ?-fticers re spected their privileges One of them was the chieftain of the party, nn? if he pledged himself, in return for more freedom for all of us. to gunr antee that there would be no escape?. i his word would be taken without que?

We made thirty versu? th? ! second day and the same distance the j third day. but then it be tan to pour, | ami tho roads became almost hnfratn ? able. The mire waa frightful, but we I had to walk our scheduled thirty ? versts. Many in our party fell sick. We looked forward to the nexi exile -statlon with ke* ? hope, so soaked were we and ao fatigued. W? longed ? for a roof and a dry floor, and noth ing else. We forgot our hunger, we j did not feel the venata that night. ? for a* soon as we reached the station we dropped like de.td in deep plumber. We had a two days' rest upon our j arrival at Katchugo. and were al i lowed to bathe in the Lena when our j chieftain made himself responsible f?r ] our conduct. We found a small party waiting to join us at Katchugo. A member of this new stoup was j recognised by some of the exiles as ! an alleged betrayer of his comrade ?in a raid, a? fi was dragged for trial ? before the entire body. Here I witnessed a remarkable | scene, the trial of a criminal by crimi nals. There was as rigid a code ot morals In the underworld ? * in any legitimate government, and just aa relentless a prosecution. A call went out that there would he a trial and the privileged criminals In chains were chosen as judges. The accusers were called upon to state their charges. In ihe hearing of the whole party. They told of the accused man'? betrayal of a comrade in a robbery some time before. (To Be Continued ) Are You Fat?
