Gevgheli, Serbia, Jan. 6. One of the most picturesque figures of the European war is the Serbian "komi- tadji" or guerilla Ivan Stoikovitch, known to fame, as "Babounsky." The name is drawn from the famous Ba bouna Pass, where recently the Serbs so long held the invading Bulgarians at bay. , Ivan Stoikovitch comes frond that part of Serbia and is. therefore known to his followers arid to 'the Serbian population at large by a nick name indicating the fact., . A slight man, tall, with honest gray-blue eyes and the pale features of a student, he impresses the stran ger with anything but the terror which his name inspires. Nor do his looks belie his real profession. For the , redoubtable " Babounsky was. a school teacher until fired bylan ardent patriotism he gave up his classes to gather about him a band of intrep id spirits in the fight for the release of the Turkish part of Serbia from the . Ottoman yoke. Ever since the first Balkan war he and his followers have been under arms. trnrecognized by the laws of wary they have taken their own risks of ' capture and instant . execution. Their refuge is in the Serbian moun tains, and they have been willing to trust their security to their own as tuteness and ' the impregnability of their numerous hiding places. , , During' the brief periods separating the first Balkan war from the second and the second Balkan war from the present European struggle, the inter nal administration of Serbia was in such a state of disonder that it seem ed to "Babounsky" better to retain his band under arms and to assist in the administration -of a rough - and ready justice than to send his follow ers to their own firesides. In this capacity even in the short intervals of peace he kept his name as. a kind of modern Robin Hood the friend of the weak and i the terror of the evil doer. Especially since the complete break down of xthe Serbian administration following the flight of the government to Scutari, has . "Babounsky" become a personage of prime importance in Serbia. Before the advancing Ger man and Bulgarian armies, town after town -was evacuated. ' Sometimes the inhabitants were able v to take a few of their belongings with them more often they were forced to leave"" with the clothes they wore as their only possessions. But especially- in the southern part of Serbia,' where thai greater kpart of the inhabitants are really of Turkish or ..Bulgarian ex traction, only the Serbs -fled and the Turks and the Bulgarians remained. While waiting for fche arrival of the armies of their compatriots, they were not averse to going through the de serted ' Serbian : -dwellings tund acquir ing a few useful articles. ' ' Babounsky" did not 'approve "' of this. , Naturally the deserted dwell ings and alf in them would fall into the hands of the conquerors. That' was all right r-the chance of war. But that former neighbors should do the looting was not in ; "Babounsky's" code.- And those who tried - it were dealt with in a most summary man ner; . - i v Whoever among the Bulgarians was suspected of giving - information to the advancing Bulgar armies also re ceived short shrift.1 A story is told of the first Balkan war when a cer tain pseudo-Serb known as "Kech- ko" was suspected of treason to the Serbian cause. "Babounsky's" band appeared uponthe scene one night and "Kehko" and four otners were ar rested, tried , in secret by the band at mid ni eh t and sentenced to be "sent to Salonika" that is, , taken to tne i banks of the."Vardar river, stabbed and thrown in, their bodies to drift down with , the current to Salonika, AH five were "lined up On the bank.! "Baboun- kutv - cra.ve tne sierna.1 iur liiu . lauu blows to be struck j , But unfortun-J ately "Kechko's executioner,, a law yer from Belgrade, had .never killed a man before and his nana siippea. The five bodies were thrust, into the Vardar, but "Kechko" was stiU alive. A .week later the Serbian c6nsul at Salonika was called to the hospitaj. VKechko" told him the story Of his escape from death, -but begged that it be kept secret until after his, depar ture for the United States. Ulti mately recovered from the unskillful stab of the Belgrade lawyer, "Kechko" quietly departed for America where he still - lives; unterrifld by the famous guerilla. - ' Whenever the allies troops have need of fresh meat or wood or mules one of the officers acquaints a Serbian with what 'is required. . The next day twenty sheep, two, cords of wood or a hundred mules are brought into Nego tin or Raphadar as the case may be by a Serbian peasant The peasant col lects an equitable sum for the goods delivered and- in t time each Serbian who has been involuntarily levied upon for lamb or wood or mule re ceives his payment "Babounsky" does not even keep a commission. When, too, either Serb or Bulgar in one of the towns occupied, by the allied t,rops behaves in a grasping or dishonest way towards the French or the British it is not long before the punishment arrives. The punish ment may take various forms, from death for treason to a dozen blows with a stout stick for cheating one of Serbia's allies: The punishments however, are rare. "Babounsky's" rep utation is too well known. The magic Lphrase: "Listen,' my -friend I shall see inai isaoounsKy nears oi imsr usually has- its effect 1 s - AVENGING ICSITANIA LOSS.
